LUXEMBOURG (Reuters) - A U.N. panel will next week recommend that the world ditch the dollar as its reserve currency in favor of a shared basket of currencies, a member of the panel said on Wednesday, adding to pressure on the dollar. (story and 1 comment and 1 image)

text The FARCE that is the International Criminal Court (ICC) Kingfisher, Thursday, Mar 5 2009, 12:40am
China has questioned the “legitimacy” of the ICC immediately after it issued a warrant for the arrest of the President of Sudan, Omar Hassan al-Bashir, for alleged war crimes and crimes against humanity. The ‘legitimacy’ of the court is in question due to its flagrant PARTIALITY -- we haven’t heard a peep from the ICC regarding warrants and charges against American or Israeli war criminals to date! And that is not for lack of EVIDENCE, which is freely available in the PUBLIC DOMAIN, notwithstanding the compromising public admissions (relating to torture) made on national television by former VP, Dick Cheney! Is it possible that ICC (and UN) investigators are so blind or incompetent? Highly unlikely! OR IS THE COURT A BRAZENLY BIASED INSTITUTION OF POLITICAL CONVENIENCE AND THEREFORE LEGALLY ILLEGITIMATE in every sense of the word?

Up to 20,000 jobs will be shed as the Royal Bank of Scotland attempts to recover from the appalling mismanagement of its executive class. [Isn’t it always the way; rank and file workers PAY the PRICE for managerial failures?] Puppet governments bailout banks with taxpayers’ hard-earned money then banks, in ‘appreciation’ of OUR help, sack us in droves without a second thought – now that’s GRATITUDE for YOU!

text Feeble response to massive drug production in NATO’s Afghanistan Kingfisher, Thursday, Feb 12 2009, 10:08am
A ‘gem’ of counter intelligence was recently published in a Canadian Military Magazine. NATO commanders are attempting to justify/expand military activity in occupied Afghanistan by proposing that drug eradication be included in military field operations! An ‘interesting’ proposition in view of the fact that America has entered into deals with regional war lords allowing them to gain revenue from drug production in exchange for their support – it’s a dirty business, war, isn’t it?

Alexander received mortal wound at the hands of Pashtun warriors image Central Asia, Nemesis of Empire Kingfisher, Saturday, Feb 7 2009, 10:13pm
Is it coincidence that organised crime flourishes wherever the US engages in its imperial wars of acquisition and exploitation? Only a fool or the uninformed civilian population would think that explosive increases in heroin production in Indo-China and Afghanistan were unrelated to American militarism. American military intervention in those regions was immediately followed by massive increases in opiate production. The ‘golden triangle’ and the so-called ‘golden crescent’ have become infamous as the largest heroin producing centres on the planet, what do you suppose is the common causative factor in these vastly divergent -- culturally and geographically -- regions? Does organised criminal activity ‘follow’ the USA or is the USA the world’s leading criminal and terrorist organisation? (story and 1 comment and 1 image)

text America's War in Central Asia Craig Murray via quill, Wednesday, Jan 28 2009, 7:24am
Despite being denied proper access to the Law Faculty building, ex-ambassador Craig Murray spoke and answered questions from the entrance for over 45 minutes. He spoke on the US war in Central Asia for control over natural gas pipelines, Lord Taylor of Blackburn and other war profiteers, and anti-Muslim propaganda in the media. Murray explicitly supported several key demands of the occupation as reasonable: that the university withdraw investment from the arms trade; that there be bursaries for Palestinian students; and that the university condemn Israel's recent actions towards Gaza.

murray.jpg image The active Australian Independence Movement dingo, Tuesday, Jan 27 2009, 7:12pm
Before the days of overt rebel expression in Australia -- the Eureka Stockade and the Kelly gang -- Imperial England had developed a plan to criminalise and exploit a downtrodden and oppressed underclass and utilise them as a slave labour force for newly ‘acquired’ colonies. Similar methods are utilised today by America. Labelling victims as criminals and ‘TERRORISTS’ allows for modern colonialists to steal land, commit mass murder and plunder the valuable resources of weaker nations. It becomes apparent that European Monarchs and today’s Western ‘democratic’ governments are merely fronts for mercantile, commercial and corporate interests. The formula of invasion, mass murder, installation of compliant regimes and EXPLOITATION hasn’t changed an iota in hundreds of years! (story and 1 comment and 2 images)

The first of 20,000 to 30,000 additional U.S. troops are scheduled to arrive in Afghanistan next month to re-win the war George W. Bush neglected to finish in his eagerness to start another one. However, "winning" the military campaign against the Taliban is the lesser half of the story.

text Israel's Dress Rehearsal for Lebanon Mike Whitney via reed, Thursday, Jan 8 2009, 7:57pm
"The raw logic of Israel’s distorted self-image and racist doctrines is exposed beyond confusion by the now-stark reality: the moonscape rubble of once-lovely Lebanese villages; a million desperate people trying to survive Israeli aerial attacks as they carry children and wheel disabled grandparents down cratered roads; limp bodies of children pulled from the dusty basements of crushed buildings. This is the reality of Israel’s national doctrine, the direct outcome of its racist worldview." Virginia Tilley "The Case for Boycotting Israel" in Counterpunch. (story and 1 comment)

The following analysis is revealing for a number of shocking reasons, not least of which is that criminal Wall St Banksters are attempting to deceive their way out of insolvency by creating money from nothing! Isn’t that what caused the global financial collapse in the first instance? What have these white-collar criminals learnt, NOTHING, it seems?

HashimThaci, KLA crime boss, NATO darling and Kosovo PM imagePDF Document Unconventional Warfare in the 21st Century Tom Burghardt via quin, Friday, Dec 19 2008, 8:47pm
On December 13, the whistleblowing website Wikileaks did investigative and citizen journalists a great service by publishing the Army Special Operations Forces FM 3-05.130, titled Unconventional Warfare. [Available below.]

Published in September 2008, the 248-page document though unclassified, is restricted "to U.S. Government agencies and their contractors only to protect technical or operational information from automatic dissemination under the International Exchange Program or by other means." The Department of the Army urges recipients to "destroy by any method that will prevent disclosure of contents or reconstruction of the document." Wikileaks has guaranteed that the disappearance of this critical primary source into the bowels of the Pentagon will not occur. (story and 2 images and 1 attached file)

text The $8.5 Trillion bet Matthias Chang via rialator, Saturday, Dec 13 2008, 7:50pm
A few weeks ago, I warned that the Dow would dive below 7,000 at the earliest by end of December 2008 and at the latest by the end of the first quarter 2009. Any responsible central banker would want to control a downturn, preferably by a gradual slide of the market as opposed to a sharp hard landing. However, events clearly indicate the current breed of financial handlers are irresponsible gamblers not prudent financial managers.

text G20: Bush pleads for return to ‘free’ market but collapse Inevitable quin, Friday, Nov 14 2008, 9:13pm
Capitalism, regardless of its many and varied disguises, is historically VERIFIABLE as WEALTH FOR THE FEW – that is its one most consistent, overriding characteristic! We therefore have no need to entertain lies that it is anything other than an unfair economic system that promotes inequity and insider elitism, which inevitably leads to the type of collapse we are experiencing at the present time!

It really is too easy! Cynical social theorist, Leo Strauss, took the easy option. The masses should be ‘managed for their own good’ by benevolent, wise and intelligent, (SUPERIOR) ruling elites like dubya Bush, Rove, Cheney, Perle, Wolfowitz, Rice, Rumsfeld etc. – get the picture? It is widely known today that far from ‘superior’ these elites are downright criminal AND incompetent! Yet most of us continue to take the bait each time these cynical manipulators offer it.
