September 2013 Breaking News Mounting evidence suggests Israeli strike on Iran approaching Why Do People Kill? And Other Revelations Of Human Nature A master of balance 8 COPS BEAT MAN TO DEATH WHILE HE BEGS FOR HELP THEN COVER IT UP Nuclear Deal With Iran Prelude to War, Not "Breakthrough" Tony CartalucciActivist Post "...any military operation against Iran will likely be very unpopular around the world and require the proper international context—both to ensure the logistical support the operation would require and to minimize the blowback from it. The best way to minimize international opprobrium and maximize support (however, grudging or covert) is to strike only when there is a widespread conviction that the Iranians were given but then rejected a superb offer—one so good that only a regime determined to acquire nuclear weapons and acquire them for the wrong reasons would turn it down. Written years ago, as the US, Saudi Arabia, and Israel were already plotting to overrun Iran's neighbor and ally Syria with Al Qaeda to weaken the Islamic Republic before inevitable war, this quote exposes fully the current charade that is the "Iran nuclear deal."

Sarcastic Fringeheads : Channel Islands : UGENA Education is Ignorance, by Noam Chomsky (Excerpted from Class Warfare) DAVID BARSAMIAN: One of the heroes of the current right-wing revival... is Adam Smith. You've done some pretty impressive research on Smith that has excavated... a lot of information that's not coming out. You've often quoted him describing the "vile maxim of the masters of mankind: all for ourselves and nothing for other people." NOAM CHOMSKY: I didn't do any research at all on Smith. He did give an argument for markets, but the argument was that under conditions of perfect liberty, markets will lead to perfect equality. He also made remarks which ought to be truisms about the way states work. This truism was, a century later, called class analysis, but you don't have to go to Marx to find it. The version of him that's given today is just ridiculous. But even more interesting in some ways was the index. I want to be clear about this. This is true of classical liberalism in general. It's the same when you read Jefferson. CHOMSKY: ... CHOMSKY: That's an eighteenth century idea. ...

The US War Machine -- 2 of 3 Terminator Robots to Take Over the Battlefield by 2023? Nicholas WestActivist Post The U.S. military's pursuit of killer robots continues to make the news, despite the concerns of major international human rights groups who have launched a campaign to stop the runaway development of robots for war. Cambridge University has even launched a "Terminator" study program known officially as the Centre for the Study of Existential Risk. Nevertheless, the military-industrial complex and their partners in the Congressional "drone caucus" are reaping big profits from machine warfare. However, studies done within the military have revealed that there has been an emotional connection established, with some soldiers even mourning robots that have been "killed" in action. Not only will soldiers be outnumbered -- they will be massively outnumbered ... by a factor of 10 to 1 according to robotic weapons expert, Scott Hartley: ten years from now, there will probably be one soldier for every 10 robots. Daksh – Daksh is one of the most current military robots.

Watch This Remarkable Teenager Come Out to Her Whole School on MLK Day - Culture - GOOD Kayla Kearney is a senior at Maria Carrillo High School in Santa Rosa, California. She's also a lesbian, a secret she kept from her friends and family her whole life. But at a school assembly honoring Martin Luther King Jr. earlier this month, that all changed. Prior to the assembly, Kearney asked a teacher if, rather than singing a song or performing a dance routine like her classmates, she could give a speech. "Facing this reality was the most challenging thing I've ever had to do in my entire life," says Kearney, "simply because I knew that for the rest of my life I was going to face a world that told me I was wrong." We think Reverend King would have been proud of Kearney, and tried to allay her fears with one of his most famous quotes: "The arc of the moral universe is long, but it bends toward justice."

OBAMA vs ROMNEY: Here's Who's Right About The Economy WikiLeaks (Documentary) While the World Watches the Iran Talks, Japan and China Move Closer to War Chris CarringtonActivist Post A small group of uninhabited islands, the Senkaku Islands if you are Japanese, the Diaoyu Islands if you are Chinese, are causing major friction between the countries. China has created a new ‘air defense identification zone’ over the disputed waters around the islands. The islands are claimed and controlled by Japan and Japan purchased three of the islands from a private citizen who owned them in September 2012. China, though, still claims the islands are in their territorial waters. Taiwan has also laid claim to the small island chain and has declared that it would “defend its sovereignty of the archipelago”. The air defense zone came into effect on Saturday and China is insisting that all aircraft passing through the zone must: “maintain two-way radio communications” and “respond in a timely and accurate manner” to identification inquiries, China’s Defence Ministry said. So why all the fuss? Read more…
