As tensions between Algeria and Libya's NTC grow, we look at al-Qaeda's role in stoking friction between the neighbours. Tensions are rising between Algeria and Libya's National Transitional Council (NTC). Muammar Gaddafi's family members have been given refuge in Algeria, but Libya wants them back. This comes a day after al-Qaeda claimed responsibility for blowing up an Algerian military academy, in what it says was a move intended to punish the country for supporting Gaddafi's regime.
Texas Governor Rick Perry's quest for the White House is enabled by the fact that President Obama is saddled with a massive economic crisis and two unpopular wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. "Is America ready for another set of cowboy boots in the White House?" Rick Perry’s Killing of an Innocent Man Is Somehow a Political Asset Probable presidential candidate Rick Perry, like other Texas governors, has a history of executing tons of people. The most famous case is that of Cameron Todd Willingham, who was executed under Perry for burning down his home with his three children inside, even though there's significant evidence that he didn't do it. How will Perry ever get past this in a presidential primary? Trick question! He doesn't have to "get past" anything, because Republican primary voters like him for doing this.
2011 will be remembered in the history books as a year of revolutionary change and struggle around the world. But what about here in the U.S.?
The Second International Conference of Victims of Agent Orange/dioxin, held in Hanoi from August 8th to 9th, 2011 included participants from around the world: Agent Orange victims, victims of other toxic chemicals, scientists, lawyers and social activists.

As environmental stresses mount, we can expect to see a growing number of environmental refugees. People do not normally leave their homes, their families, and their communities unless they have no other option. Yet as environmental stresses mount, we can expect to see a growing number of environmental refugees.
Finding a new job today often requires thinking outside the box, and you can’t think much further outside the job search box than workamping. Where are the jobs? That question is on the minds of millions of Americans who have lost jobs during the Great Recession. During this historically lean jobs creation period, finding a new job often requires thinking outside the box. And you can’t think much further outside the job search box than "workamping" -- also known as work-camping.
Yes! It will be 100% voter turnout.
In a much anticipated speech Friday before a gathering of central bankers and international financial officials, Federal Reserve Board Chairman Ben Bernanke sought to reassure panicky markets while proposing no measures to ease the worsening jobs crisis in the US and internationally.
NATO’s assault on Libya, a criminal imperialist war from its outset, has descended into an exercise in out-and-out murder as special forces operatives and intelligence agents hunt down Gaddafi.
As rebels take Tripoli, foreign powers are eyeing the prize of Libya's high quality crude oil. It looks like the more telling news on Libya has migrated to the business pages. With jubilant reporting of Gaddafi's imminent downfall seizing headlines, it's the financial pages that have the clinical analysis. So, for instance, it is in this section that the Independent reports a "dash for profit in the post-war Libya carve up".
In his new article headlined, "9/11 After A Decade: Have We Learned Anything?" Paul Craig Roberts said: "Today Americans are unsafe, not because of terrorists and domestic extremists, but because they have lost their civil liberties and no protection from unaccountable government power."
Dr. Day, a Rockefeller offical, said there would be new diseases to appear which had not ever been seen before. Would be very difficult to diagnose and be untreatable -- at least for a long time. The incidence of Lyme Disease has DOUBLED since 1991. Let's say that we've got 500,000 cases a year for 20 years, since Lyme is under-reported and under-diagnosed. That means we're talking at least 10 million cases in the USA alone.
It should be obvious to everyone but the most dedicated adherent of Keynesianism that the stimulus did not accomplish its end. The combination of outright spending by Congress, the desperate schemes to reflate the housing market, the attempt to transfuse bleeding firms with other people’s money, and the creation of trillions in artificial money, has not done a thing to lift the US economy.
More and more people in Britain are now relying on the state and charities for a roof over their heads. Homelessness in one of the world’s richest country is on the rise. More and more people in Britain are now relying on the state and charities for a roof over their heads. In the second quarter of this year, around 9,000 homes were repossessed in Britain. Interest rates here are low at the moment but there are fears that when they do eventually rise, more families will struggle. And more will end up turning to the authorities to help provide a roof over their heads. Emma Hayward travelled to the city of Bristol to find out how the rising cost of living is affecting people from all walks of life.
BAGHDAD - Rania was 16 years old when officials raped her during Saddam Hussein’s 1991 crackdown in Iraq’s Shia south. "My bothers were sentenced to death, and the price to stop this was to offer my body," she says. Cast out for bringing ‘shame’ to her family, Rania ran away to Baghdad and soon fell into living and working in Baghdad’s red light district. Prostitution and sex trafficking are epidemic in Iraq, where the violence of military occupation and sectarian strife have smashed national institutions,
The 45,000 CWA and IBEW members are hopeful that Monday night's return to work at Verizon after a two-week strike will bring meaningful collective bargaining and a good result for all concerned. For us, the strike was about real collective bargaining rights as much as about preserving the standard of living for our families.
As environmental activists were handcuffed in front of the White House on Friday, the State Department released the final Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) for the massive Keystone XL pipeline that would pump crude oil from the Alberta tar sands in Canada across six western states to stations in Oklahoma and Texas.
The world could be heading into another fully fledged credit crisis, according to Satyait Das, the author of Extreme Money: Masters of the Universe and the Cult of Risk.
The US/UK/French-led war on Libya will be remembered as one of history's greatest crimes. It violates the letter and spirit of international law and America's Constitution. The Nuremberg Tribunal's Chief Justice Robert Jackson (a US Supreme Court Justice) called Nazi war crimes "the supreme international crime against peace." His November 21, 1945 opening remarks said:
Russia's Kommersant newspaper said that sources of the Russian delegation accompanying Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov in his visit to Venezuela confirmed that both governments want to create a bank. Russia and Venezuela are considering the possibility to create a new international financial institution, similar to the World Bank but on a more modest scale, according to Russia's Kommersant newspaper.
He's anti-woman, anti-gay, anti-black, anti-senior-citizen, anti-equality and anti-education, and that's just the start. There are few things as maddening in a maddening political season as the warm and fuzzy feelings some progressives evince for Rep. Ron Paul of Texas, the Republican presidential candidate. "The anti-war Republican," people say, as if that's good enough.

THE ARRIVAL OF THE TOTALITARIAN GLOBAL SYSTEM
"Pakistan Observer" -- Some years ago, in the Indian site www.bharat-rakshak.com, this columnist had written of the NATO militaries as resembling an army of simians. Such a force - if let loose within a confined space – can create immense damage, but are unable to clean up the resultant mess. This is precisely what the world has witnessed in Iraq. Despite more than a decade of sanctions that directly resulted in nearly a million extra deaths during that period ( because of shortages created by the UN-approved measures), the regime of Saddam Hussein was able to provide food, energy and housing to the people of Iraq, whereas eight years after “liberation” by key NATO members, the country and its population are worse off than before the 2003 invasion that led to the execution of Saddam Hussein.
The deal on the debt ceiling accomplished the opposite of what most Americans want, according to polls. Why is a vocal minority dominating mainstream politics? ►A stake in the heart of the welfare state ►Apologists for austerity
One year ago marked the beginning of silver returning to it’s rightful role as money in the world. One year ago silver was at $17.76 an ounce after a very long and drawn out consolidation that went all the way back to St. Patrick’s Day 2008. One year ago was the beginning of silver’s breathtaking run to almost $50 an ounce, a 178% return. Even today, despite the massive paper attack in May and the last two days, we are still up 104% year over year.
The Daily Mail reported this week that young Paul Donnachie was found to have acted in a racially aggravated manner when he defiled an Israeli flag in a supposed political protest.
"Russia needs democracy just like Libya does" - Senator McCain. US Senator and former presidential candidate John McCain has lashed out at Russia, saying it could be the next country to experience a Libya-style uprising. McCain is sure that the Arab Spring will rage on and will make it to countries like China and Russia, which according to him “need democracy” just as Libya does.
Dozens of United States diplomatic cables released in the latest WikiLeaks dump on Wednesday reveal new details of the US effort to push foreign governments to approve genetically engineered (GE) crops and promote the worldwide interests of agribusiness giants like Monsanto and DuPont.
Libyans Are Fighting NATO Troops
With Gaddafi at large, a guerrilla war eroding the new powers is inevitable. Doomed always to fight the last war, we are recommitting the same old sin in Libya.
A more severe crash than the one triggered by the collapse of Lehman Brothers could be on the way, according to alarm signals in the credit markets. "The Guardian" - -Insurance on the debt of several major European banks has now hit historic levels, higher even than those recorded during financial crisis caused by the US financial group's implosion nearly three years ago.
CARACAS, Venezuela—Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez said Wednesday that Libya's crisis is just beginning with the fall of Moammar Gadhafi's government. Chavez has been a staunch defender of Gadhafi throughout the conflict, and he condemned NATO airstrikes and killings of civilians. "The drama of Libya isn't ending with the fall of Gadhafi's government. It's beginning," Chavez said. "The tragedy in Libya is just beginning."
In the 19th year of the war, the states of the US-UK-Germany war alliance are facing bankruptcy. Yet, instead of transforming the military-industrial complex into a peace economy and making the economic power serve the people, the wars are carried on, even extended – and states like Switzerland are attacked, in order to raise money for the empty war chest. Instead of following the guidelines of international law, the belligerent states always follow the same pattern:
So-called “business as usual” is neither sustainable, nor even possible, for much longer. Out-of-control energy corporations, Wall Street, the Pentagon, agribusiness/biotech corporations, and indentured politicians have driven us to the brink. They tell us: don’t worry; trust the experts, things will soon return to “normal.” But reality and common sense tell a different story.
With housing prices dropping sharply , and foreclosure filings against more than 1 million properties  in the first half of this year, the Obama administration is scrambling for ways to help homeowners. A representative from Bank of America meets with homeowner Alysa Cerisier, right, to discuss mortgage modifications at a workshop on Aug. 25, 2011, in New York City. (Spencer Platt/Getty Images) One place they won't be looking: An estimated $30 billion from the bailout that was slated to help homeowners but is likely to remain unspent.
While Buffett is forced to bailout America's most insolvent bank, which just confirmed our prediction that it will need to raise capital (although this capital raise was far lass than what will be finally needed), Europe has realized that it has no kindly-looking, ukulele-playing, no-income-tax-paying billionaire equivalent to bailout Intesa, SocGen, UniCredit, etc, etc, oh, and tomorrow, the short-selling bank is supposed to expire. End result: DAX flash crashes, and no rebound yet.
Ten years after September 11th, human rights flounder in the United States but flourish in the Middle East. Since September 11th, the United States and the Arab world have traveled a treacherous road together. Where they have arrived after ten years sets them apart. In the US, the embrace of human rights as a defining value and ideal worthy of considerable sacrifice is gradually fading, while the Arab world is in the midst of a rights revolution.
Texas Gov. Rick Perry is the latest Republican to say he wants to be president--and his record in Texas shows he's as creepy and corrupt as they come. ENDING MONTHS of speculation, Texas Gov. Rick Perry formally announced on August 13 that he was entering the race for the White House in 2012. ►The Texas school of falsification ►The governor of death buries the truth
The truth is there are no jubilation in Tripoli because even the most dull-witted there realize their country has been taken over by a western coup. Question: If there is no jubilation then where exactly do you get shots for the TV showing massive happy crowds in Tripoli's "Green Square"? (soon to be re-named "Martyr Square" by a CIA scriptwriter.) Answer: Just get some archive footage from a demonstration in India completely unrelated to the story, slap "live" on it and have the idiot news readers say it's from Tripoli. Those people all look the same anyway, right? That's the BBC folks. And people worry if blogs are a reliable source of information.
