“The $700b bailout bill is being driven by fear, not fact. This is too much money, in too short a time, going to too few people, while too many questions remain unanswered. Why aren’t we having hearings? Why aren’t we considering any other alternatives, other than giving $700b to Wall Street? Why aren’t we passing new laws to stop the speculation which triggered this? Why aren’t we putting up new regulatory structures to protect the investors? Why aren’t we directly helping homeowners with their debt burdens? Why aren’t we helping American families faced with bankruptcy? Isn’t time for fundamental change to our debt-based monetary system, so we can free ourselves from the manipulation of the Federal Reserve and the banks? Is this the US Congress or the Board of Directors of Goldman Sachs?

yet more disinfo about the damascus bomb

Syria resumes covert nuclear projects
in partnership with North Korea

DEBKAfile, Sep 28 2008

DEBKAfile’s intelligence sources report that it took Damascus a year to recover from the demolition of its plutonium project at El Kibar in northern Syria, but already the nuclear scientists and technicians who were to have been employed there have been hired for new projects. This time the installations are scattered in different parts of the country. North Korean nuclear experts are back too. Our military sources describe rising tension between Syria and Israel in the wake of the car bomb explosion Saturday Sep 27, which killed 17 people and injured 14 outside a Syrian security installation at Sidi Kadad on the highway to Damascus airport. The victims were not officially identified. Various Arab sources report that one was a Syrian brigadier who was not named. After the attack, DEBKAfile’s sources raised the possibility that it might have targeted people involved in Iranian/Syrian nuclear activity. Damascus has been wary of accusing Israel of engineering the blast, but unofficial Syrian intelligence sources have indirectly pointed the finger at Israel, claiming it was an attempt to spoil Syria’s improving relations with the West. Western intelligence sources note that Syria has been hit in the past year with attacks associated with its clandestine nuclear activities. The El Kibar reactor was knocked out on Sep 6 2007 while it was under construction. On Aug 2 2008, Gen. Muhammad Suleiman was shot dead by a sniper in Latakia. He was a key man in the Syrian nuclear program and acted as liaison officer for Damascus with Iran and North Korea. If Saturday’s blast did indeed cause the death of a high Syrian officer involved in the program, it would have been the third consecutive operation against Damascus’ revived application to clandestine nuclear projects.

Money talks
Comment by qvh to http://www.iraq-war.ru/article/176855

When the US goes bankrupt, it will not have money to pay for Pax Americana. The nations around the globe are reassessing the relationship with America. States like South Korea are shifting their alliances so that they are not clients of a failed pauperized nation like the US. The Gulf States are also starting to see their continuing alliance with the US as an albatross. They don’t want to be dragged down with the US as its economy collapses. In fact, these states are acting far too late. They should have dissociated from the US a long time ago as it was evident as long as a decade ago that the US’s economic situation was not a viable one. Malaysia was one of the nations that recognized that an early break with the US was beneficial. Under Mahathir, they made their move just before the Asian financial crisis of the 90s started to break out. As a result, the Malaysians were insulated from the worst part of it although they did not entirely escape the suffering.

Nevertheless, it’s better to act now then never and these states are now making the effort to break away and establish new relationships with up and coming superpowers. They see the future in places like Russia, China and India. Unfortunately, so do the Zionists. For the last couple of decades, the Zionists have been laying the groundwork in Russia and the former SU nations for their relocation from the US to Russia. Little is the world aware of it, but the catchcry in Zionist circles has been “Divorce America, marry Russia.” This is what all this nonsense promoted recently in the media about the rediscovery of Khazaria, the ancient homeland of the Jews, is about. It is about facilitating the move of the American Jews from America to Russia, via Israel. Israeli Jews can travel very easily from Israel to Russia. Visa restrictions have been lifted and travel is virtually visa-free. So the Jews are shifting from the rotting carcass of America to newly prosperous Russia.

another delightful smidgeon of disinfo

An officer believed to be linked to the 2005 assassination of then Lebanese prime minister Rafik Hariri was the target of Syria’s blast on Saturday, an Italian report said Tuesday. Syrian opposition sources told the Italian news agency Adnkronos International that last Saturday’s explosion in Damascus targeted the deputy director of the Palestinian Branch of Syrian Intelligence, officer Abdul Karim Abbas. The sources said that the Independent International Investigation Committee charged with investigating the assassination of Hariri, had previously heard testimony from Abbas. […] – DPA
