There was never any chance that Obama would back the end of nuclear power generation, no matter how many bones he might toss to the anti-nuclear movement. There is even less chance that Obama would ever try to turn the nation from the path of perpetual "persistent war." Throwing out this teaser now in the British press is another sign of growing desperation. Obama, like Clinton before him, is a good example of what the Democratic Party in the United States really wants--To kick the shit out of every smaller or weaker country that dares to say "No" to our demands to turn their backs on their Russian and Chinese friends, while finishing-off the American industrial base, in order to create their "globalist" nightmare.
Like in all American Hegelian politics, the public images projected by both the national Democrats, as well as the Republicans, is the exact opposite of the true nature of the party leaders. Democrats have always been warmongers just like the Republicans, the only difference is that the Republicans are proud militarists who revel in their warmongering, unlike the Democrats, who always hide behind a curtain of "humanitarianism," while pretending to be "peacemakers," whose only concern is the extending of the American/British Empire.
Consider this: The worst warmongers in the entire "war of terror" scheme have always been "neocons," most of whom were former Democrats or Marxists. Obama and Clinton were every bit neocons, just as much as Dick Cheney.
If enough international heat builds-up against the American/NATO aggression in Libya, then look for Obama to offer an olive branch to the Earth-first people, most of whom think that getting rid of nukes should take priority over putting an end to wars of aggression. Nuclear power has to be put way in the back of the vault, until we really understand nuclear science, but until that day finally arrives, we must first survive the nuclear disarmament process. There is no real disarmament process at this time, only more political theater. The real disarmament process will begin, when there is unity among nations for the purpose of eliminating the threats and international tensions which motivate nations to consider nuclear deterrence. Until there is a common desire to escape the nuclear nightmare, there should be no unity of purpose. Uniting behind the world aggression is the worst possible mistake real humanitarians could make.
There are two facts we are certain about: Politicians never tell the truth, unless the truth would work better than the lie. Obama would have never backslid on the nuclear power issue, unless he feared an avalanche of hostile reaction to his wars.
This trepidation shows that we are making our voices heard on some level. We must keep doing what we have been doing, working even harder to amplify the sound of our unified voices. In addition to this task, we must work on the weak arm of our growing resistance, the environmentalists, who will very likely bolt to Obama's side, if he plays the "anti-nuclear" card.
Beyond all of that, someone, perhaps the last moral leader, must force a vote at the UN on the anti-Libyan aggression.....
Germany has pulled out of NATO operations due to disagreements over the mission in Libya. To add to that, Germany did the unthinkable: it voted in favor of a UN Security Council resolution calling the Israeli settlements in occupied Palestinian territory illegal and demanding the immediate halt of all settlement activity. Whoa.
Then, Ms Merkel did something very strange: she ordered the shutdown of Germany’s nuclear reactors.
Curiously, the Japanese, too, have now openly sided with the Palestinians — and they have now have serious problems with runaway nukes. Coincidence? Perhaps. But consider this: The same Israeli company providing ‘security’ to Japan’s reactors is the one that’s also responsible for the nukes in Germany. Reckon that had something to do with why Merkel hurriedly ordered the shut down of German reactors? What does she know? Was Israel’s Stuxnet virus responsible — intentionally or not — for the Japanese meltdown? Was it unleashed on the Japanese as a warning (albeit one that got out of control) not to mess with God’s chosen people? Is this what Merkel fears could happen in Germany?
Think that’s farfetched? Not when you consider that just yesterday, BOTH engines of Merkel’s immaculately maintained Puma chopper suffered simultaneous flameouts. Is Ms Merkel now suddenly waking up to the fact that the Israelis are stark raving mad and will stop at nothing to get what they want?
I’m inclined to believe Ms Merkel now takes very seriously the words of noted Israeli military historian Martin van Creveld when he openly boasted in an interview last year about Israel’s military capabilities, “We possess several hundred atomic warheads and rockets and can launch them at targets in all directions, perhaps even at Rome. Most European capitals are targets for our air force…. We have the capability to take the world down with us. And I can assure you that that will happen before Israel goes under.”
And van Creveld isn’t exactly chopped liver — he’s lectured at the American Army War College. Replying to a question whether Israel does not have fears of being classified as a criminal state if it expelled Palestinians, van Creveld said, “Israel is a state that does not care about what others say about it and you must remember the saying of former defense minister Moshe Dayan when he said that ‘Israel must always act as a wild dog because it should be dangerous in the eyes of others, rather than be harmed.’” …
Bandar to Zardari: "We need your help to meet the challenges in Bahrain....!""... Prince Bandar, who is the former secretary-general of the Saudi National Security Council and a former envoy of his country to Washington, is on a short visit to Pakistan.Terming the visit significant, sources said: “He has come as a special emissary of King Abdullah.” The prince is scheduled to meet Chief of the Army Staff Gen Ashfaq Parvez Kayani today before returning home in the afternoon.
The sources said the visit by the son of Crown Prince Sultan bin Abdulaziz is of great importance in the backdrop of the political disturbance in Bahrain. The possibility of the prince asking Pakistan for “meaningful help to meet challenges in its neighborhood cannot be ruled out,” the sources said. According to data obtained by The Express Tribune, there are 60,000 Pakistanis, mainly ex-servicemen, serving in that country’s defense and other security establishments..."
