Here we go

  1. Israel is in the final stages of deployment preparations against Iran. Apparently with the full support of the W administration. "The station will give the USA an opportunity to use its radar towards Russia freely, without any explanations or control. In addition, the station will give Israel more confidence in its war preparations" Read the full article here.

  2. The USA enters into "arms deals" with Nicaragua to purchase 20 year old Soviet Block munitions. WTF, our "war machine" isn't producing enough? Where is Ollie to keep the secret this time. Full text is here.

  3. South Ossetia, an outskirt Georgian province, is being backed by Russia against an invasion by Georgia. McCain on "Russia's Aggression": "Russia should immediately and unconditionally cease its military operations and withdraw all forces from sovereign Georgian territory. What is most critical now is to avoid further confrontation between Russian and Georgian military forces." Hello pot, my name is kettle. I am amazed Mr. McCain knows the word sovereign.

Its not only remarkable that John McCain can say the word without bursting into flames, but that anyone could not recognize that Ossetia, which has been operating as not only an independent province, but an independent and functioning state, since the early 1990's, is sovereign. That we have the gall to deny their very existence seperate of georgian state, even as we continually support rebellions (when it suits our profit structures) around the world, is appalling.

Russia taking this opportunity to flex its muscles is another story, and a clear sign of things to come.

Meanwhile, in Kosovo:

Also, as a small point of advice, while its always good to get a news from other perspectives, Pravda is generaly considered a state run news and propaganda outlet, while im not saying they arent correct in this case, its always a good idea to check their stories and id avoid citing them directly if there are other options.

In other words, treat them the way you would Fox.
