A Synopsis Of This Morning’s News…
H/t to ChrisM my MP3Angel for supplying the audio files.

«o» President Obama reached out to Iran for the Persian New Year saying he wanted to open talks and attempt to wind down the rhetoric about their nuclear power program. Some US Republicans and some Iranian theocrats holding political office In Iran are denouncing the president’s move. I’d conjecture on the similarities between the two but good taste implies I desist lest the Iranian theocrats seem more reasonable in their opinion of president Obama.

«o» A US English teacher has been assassinated in a Yemeni university town leading to the distinct possibility that all US citizens in the country are in danger despite the fact that our drone strikes are continuing to wipe out that county’s population a few citizens at a time… Or perhaps that’s the reason US citizens are in danger there.

«o» The transportation bill passed last week by the Senate is now in the house of representatives, and despite the fact that the entire transportation infrastructure of the country will begin disintegrating if the bill isn’t passed by the end of the month, in it’s first day back in session, the house Republicans spent the whole day haggling over the use of 32 acres of federal land.

«o» The results for the Illinois Republican primaries are pretty much in and Romney, lagging the predictions, took the race by 12 points. There are a couple of other primaries coming up this week.


In OTHER News:

Since the MSM doesn’t seem to be covering the Syrian destabilization campaign, yours truly will, and this group of clips may explain why the West has dropped their coverage like a hot Falafel:

It has been confirmed that members of Libya’s Al Qaeda affiliate, the NATO-backed LIFG ‘rebels’, are now literally leading the so-called Free Syrian Army (FSA).

In recent months, a certain number of Arab newspapers, favorable to the Al-Assad administration, discussed the infiltration into Syria of 600 to 1,500 fighters from the Islamic Fighting Group in Libya (IFGL), rebranded Al Qaeda in Libya since November 2007. In late November 2011, the Libyan press reported the attempt by the Zintan militia to detain Abdel Hakim Belhaj, companion of Osama Bin Laden [2] and historic leader of Al Qaeda in Libya, who became military governor of Tripoli by the grace of NATO [3]. The scene took place at Tripoli airport, as he was leaving for Turkey. Finally, Turkish newspapers mentioned Mr. Belhaj’s presence at the Turkish-Syrian… [In Full @ VoltaireNet]
Let it also be noted that the Syrian ‘rebels’ are also engaged in a campaign of murder and torture… Just like their Libyan counterparts:

The (Human Rights Watch) report indicates that Syria’s opposition, like the NATO-backed rebels in Libya, are lawless, unprincipled, sectarian, extremists. They are far from “democracy activists” or “unarmed, helpless civilians,” and very far from being “victims” of a disproportionate use of force… [More from LandDestroyer]
Meanwhile Middle East Report Online addresses at least part of yours truly’s longstanding theory that the Syrian destabilization op currently in progress, although apparently no longer MSM newsworthy in the absence of anti-Syrian-government war porn, has A LOT to do with the Kurds. It doesn’t address my hypothesis that the Kurds will attempt a breakaway state on the Iraq/Iran border, steal oil, and transit it to Kirkuk, across Iraq and Syria, meaning Syria’s Assad needed to be removed or ‘put on notice’ regarding any attempt to impede the purloined oil, but there’s a lot of detail in this article that points towards that possibility.

Denise Natali lays out all the “Syrian Kurdish Cards,” @ MERO.

A Synopsis Of This Morning’s News…
H/t to ChrisM my MP3Angel for supplying the audio files.

«o» The Republican Missouri caucus is coming up on Saturday and the Illinois event happens next Tuesday. Meanwhile Rick Santorum is in Puerto Rico where he’s pitching for their votes and told an audience in regard to Puerto Rican statehood that they’d have to pass an English test! He seems to have forgotten that Puerto Ricans are American citizens despite the fact he was stumping for their votes, and what he claims has no basis in federal or constitutional law. Good thing he was only talking to the territory’s Republicans. They don’t care about those silly things.

«o» The pressure for a diplomatic solution to Iran’s nuclear program have picked up with the Saudis pledging to take up the slack if the Western oil embargo and sanctions affect the West’s oil supply. However if the Iranians make good on their promise to close the Straits of Hormuz India, China and Japan would be more than willing to purchase the Iranian oil so the boycott probably won’t have any substantial effect except to fill the authoritarian Saudi’s treasury. FWIW, the Iranians control the Straits under international law and they can close it if they want to, so any war made as a result of that closure would be an outlaw war… as if the nations who would fight that war on Iran care.

«o» Fourteen Turkish troops have been killed by an IED outside of Kabul Afghanistan where they are ‘working in a support role’ and a preliminary Afghan parliamentary investigation has concluded that there was more than one person involved in the massacre of those Afghani civilians last week. More on that here.

A Synopsis Of This Morning’s News…
H/t to ChrisM my MP3Angel for supplying the audio files.

«o» There are primaries and caucuses in Alabama, Mississippi, the Virgin Islands and Guam today. If Mitt Romney doesn’t carry Alabama and Mississippi he’ll have a hard time with his Southern strategy.

«o» The fight is already on as to where the trial for the Army sergeant who just massacred sixteen Afghan civilians will be held. The Pentagon is claiming the trial will be held under Court Martial rules using the Uniform Code of Military Justice but the Afghan government is saying they expect a civilian trial under Afghanistan’s laws. Lets see… Not military action… Kills civilians as an ‘independent actor’… The latter seems to be the appropriate route, but YOU BET that’s not what’s going to happen with the Pentagon saying the soldier will be out of the country within 48 hours.

You can hear the clamor and cries in the halls and chambers of US government to speed EVERYONE’S exit from the country while president Obama says “We shouldn’t rush to the exits” out one side of his two faces as he apologizes for atrocities committed by our soldiers from the other ‘face’.

Meanwhile, let it be said without denying this tragedy in a war that is NOTHING BUT a continuing tragedy for the people of Afghanistan, that American soldiers ARE victims themselves, of a deceptive lying (Osama bin-Laden spent most of his hiding time in Pakistan NOT Afghanistan) government… OUR GOVERNMENT, that put them in harms way, and in this case recycled the soldier FOUR TIMES into a combat zone… Because the US government DEPENDS on a small army, lest there be a military draft for our Imperial wars, which means EVERYONE in America gets to meet troopers who have been destroyed in any number of ways by war, or lost a friend, relative, or lover to a war. Not a pleasant proposition for a nation raised on bloodless video game violence.

The protests in regard to that civilian massacre are just… getting…started in Kandahar, Kabul, and other larger towns. Expect those protests to spread and get more violent in light of the Taliban’s statement that they’ve ordered their fighters to begin attacking everyone and anyone in the employ of the US or NATO, and their facilities throughout the country.

«o» Egypt has managed to monger together a truce between Israel and the Palestinians in Gaza after four days of tit-for-tat rocket attacks and air bombardments.

«o» The House of Representatives has gone home to hustle their constituents for re-election and the senate will break later today or tomorrow after they figure out how to gut the Transportation bill. More.

«o» There will be protests in Oakland and elsewhere in California today over a provision in the new state budget that would cut animal shelter funding and reduce the ‘wait-time till destruction’ for errant pets to three days. Details.


In OTHER News:

Let it be noted that your government is SCARED OF YOU… So what do we do?

The world’s leaders flee from us … so what do we do? Maybe we just laugh at them?

ADBUSTERS: TACTICAL BRIEFING #27 – #LAUGHRIOT

Alright you wild cats, nimble dreamers and jammer tacticians,

In a sudden about-face, the United States has conceded a victory to Occupy and moved May’s G8 summit to Camp David, an impenetrable military base in rural Maryland.

Wow! Looks like the specter of 50,000 occupiers ready to swarm with a list of demands has turned the climactic Showdown in Chicago into a humiliating G8 Backdown. Bravo! Splitting the G8 and NATO summits was a deft move… but now we’ve got a major tactical rethink on our hands.

The big question is do we follow Mao’s advice (“when the enemy retreats, we pursue”) or Sun Tzu’s (“Do not pursue an enemy who simulates flight”)?

We’ve heard persuasive arguments on all sides. Some occupiers say the movement should lay chase and go for #OCCUPYCAMPDAVID against all odds … a month of tree-sits, lockdowns and nomadic encampments in the woods and nearby Thurmont. Others believe it’s best to up the ante with #OCCUPYCHICAGO: an even bigger mobilization beginning with the May Day General Strike. Still others advocate an unpredictable everywhere-at-once global insurgency of anarchic swarms throughout the month of May….

When Ben Ali first attacked then tried to hide from his people, he was toppled. When Mubarak refused to negotiate and tried to beat his people back into line, he was deposed. Now the White House and the G8 are repeating the mistakes of last year’s autocrats … first they try to scare us with tough talk of repressive anti-Occupy ordinances, crowd suppression technologies and paramilitary policing, then they make a hasty retreat to the safety of Camp David.

The world’s leaders flee from us … so what do we do? Maybe we just laugh at them?

On May 18, the day the G8 leaders meet in Camp David, why don’t we, the people of the world have a #LAUGHRIOT.

Let roars of laughter rise up from towns and cities everywhere at the spectacle of the world’s leaders trying to crisis manage the economy from behind closed doors and razor wire fences…

A Synopsis Of This Morning’s News…
H/t to ChrisM my MP3Angel for supplying the audio files.

«o» Something is cooking in the talks between the Taliban and the Afghani government. The president teleconferenced yesterday with the Karzai ‘government’ and requested they keep the president informed as to the progress in negotiations. Meanwhile it has been announced that the US will transfer three thousand detainees to the Afghan government within three months. Expect many of them to be released simply for lack of evidence.

«o» The solar storm billed as an F3 major event turned out to be simply a good day for earthlings to get a suntan. There was no noticeable effect on the communications infrastructure or power grid on the planet, but there ARE a few days left in this solar event.

«o» It’s illegal, but HEY, it ‘gets the goods’… The Drone Wars in South Waziristan continue with fourteen SUSPECTED militants killed and the top al-Qaeda officer in the region confirmed killed last month.

«o» Another week of doing almost nothing - Congress has returned home for a week-long election year break after passing a minuscule small business and jobs bill as proof of the fact that the Republicans are still vertical and breathing to vote on bills at all.

«o» Alabama and Mississippi are seen as the key states in next week’s Republican primaries with no one campaigning in Kansas at all.

In OTHER News:

AuntieImperial: @ggreenwald @alphaleah @BarrettBrownLOL It’s hard being a ‘lightning rod’ ALL the time. Aren’t those the first words I ever typed at you BB?

"Have been meeting with lawyers and replacing computers, modem, phone, front door of my apartment. It looks like they want to indict me."

Barrett Brown, Anonymous ‘spokesman’ has had his apartment (and his mother’s place) raided yesterday as part of a continuing effort to staunch the flow of typically NON-SECRET information leaked from various government and private security firms across the globe (Interpol was hacked recently) by that shadowy collective of Hacktivists known as Anonymous, LulzSec, AntiSec, and other witty names. They didn’t arrest him. They’re ‘looking for laptops’.

(wonder what kind of bait they use when on fishing expeditions for those?)

More from Barrett’s hometown newspaper:

Barrett Brown Raided by Feds
Posted on March 7th, 2012 1:18pm

Filed under Local News

I’ve wondered in this space whether the Zetas would get Barrett Brown before the feds did. Well, the former unofficial not-spokesman for Anonymous was raided yesterday by the feds, who are stepping up their efforts to deprive the group of lulz. Yesterday a hacker going by the handle Sabu was arrested — and it turned out he’d been cooperating with the government for some time. From Barrett’s statement on the raid (the language of which required me to dash out a few letters) [In Full @ Dallas Magazine]

Some more on the the raid, and the lead-up to it, from Bloomberg.

There is nothing wrong with your television set.

Do not attempt to adjust the picture. We are controlling transmission. If we wish to make it louder, we will bring up the volume. If we wish to make it softer, we will tune it to a whisper. We will control the horizontal. We will control the vertical. We can roll the image, make it flutter. We can change the focus to a soft blur or sharpen it to crystal clarity. For the next hour, sit quietly and we will control all that you see and hear. We repeat: there is nothing wrong with your television set. You are about to participate in a great adventure. You are about to experience the awe and mystery which reaches from the inner mind to —

A Synopsis Of This Morning’s News…
H/t to ChrisM my MP3Angel for supplying the audio files.

«o» In yesterday’s Republican primary Mitt Romney won in Idaho, Massachusetts, Vermont, Virginia, and Alaska while holding the lead in Wyoming with 56% of the vote and 26% of the vote counted compared to Rick Santorum’s 30% currently. Santorum took Tennessee, North Dakota, and Oklahoma, Gingrich took Georgia, and Ron Paul had none. Next are some Southern state primaries where Santorum may do better in Mississippi and Alabama, but it’s pretty much all over, with Mitt Romney appearing to be the Republican presidential contender for 2012.

«o» President Obama has OK’d new talks with the Iranian government about their nuclear power program while Iran has said it will allow the IAEA and US inspectors into their military facilities.

«o» In Afghanistan six British soldiers were killed by a roadside bomb in the capital of Helmand province. It’s winter in Afghanistan and no one from the West patrols outside the cities in those bitter conditions so the Taliban seem to be bringing the fight to the West.

«o» Apple Corp has invited guests for a viewing of it’s new iPad in San Francisco today, and it appears the media is the ‘guest’.

«o» Senator John McCain is holding hearings on US military policy towards Syria with Secretary of Defense Panetta on the stand today, while in Syria, the government has blown up the bridge connecting the country to Lebanon to staunch the flow of refugees out of the country ahead of a Libya-like invasion of the country by NATO.
