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.

'Workampers': What It's Like to Wander Around the Country in an RV Desperately Looking for Work

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.

"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 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.
