NATO attack threatens war on militants - Pakistan

Pakistan has had it with Pakistan - U.S. government alliance; views NATO as tool of America

ISLAMABAD (Reuters) -

Pakistan, enraged by a NATO cross-border attack that killed 24 soldiers, could end support for the U.S.-led war on militancy if its sovereignty is violated again, the foreign minister said, warning that "enough is enough."

    The South Asian nation has already shown its anger over the weekend strike by pulling out of an international conference in Germany next week on Afghanistan, depriving the talks of a central player in efforts to bring peace to its neighbor.

No More:  Pakistan tells Obama/CIA to get out in 15 days
"Enough is enough. The government will not tolerate any incident of spilling even a single drop of any civilian or soldier's blood," The News newspaper on Thursday quoted Foreign Minister Hina Rabbani Khar as telling a Senate committee on foreign affairs.

"Pakistan's role in the war on terror must not be overlooked," Khar said, suggesting Pakistan could end its support for the U.S. war on militancy. Despite opposition at home, Islamabad backed Washington after the September 11, 2001, attacks on the United States.

    The U.S. Embassy released a video statement on YouTube by Ambassador Cameron Munter in which he expressed regret for the attack. (http:/link.reuters.com/cyz35s)

    "I would like to extend my most sincere condolences to the people and government of Pakistan, and especially to Pakistan's men and women in uniform, for the tragic incident that took place on November 26 in Mohmand Agency," he said, standing in front of U.S. and Pakistani flags.

    "We regret it very much," he added in Urdu.

    He said the United States took the attack "very seriously" and pledged a "a full, in-depth investigation."

Pakistanis taking no more shit from Obama

"Pakistan and the U.S. have stood together for over 60 years," he said. "We have weathered previous crises together. I'm certain we will weather this one too, and emerge, together, as stronger partners."

White House spokesman Jay Carney said the investigation was still in its early stages and he made clear the administration thought it would be premature to consider whether or not to apologize to Pakistan until the probe is complete.

    "We need to find the results of this investigation," he told reporters in Washington. "We have offered our condolences. ... I'm not going to prejudge actions we might take, what we might say, in the future."

     He confirmed there had been a suggestion from the U.S. Embassy in Pakistan for a taped message of condolences, presumably by President Barack Obama, but a decision was made to offer condolences instead on the president's behalf.

    But events seemed to be working against lowering tensions. Two Pakistani men were killed in Afghanistan early on Thursday and Pakistani border guards said NATO may have been responsible.

    The officials said the two men, who were from the town of Chagai in the Pakistani province of Baluchistan, were gathering wood 30 km (19 miles) inside Afghanistan. They said NATO helicopters fired on their vehicle.

NATO permanently alienated Pakistanis
 "I can confirm that the bodies of two residents of Chagai have arrived from Afghanistan," said Chagai Assistant Commissioner Tufail Baloch. "But I do not have any information on how they were killed. It happened on Afghan soil so we don't have many details yet."

     NATO officials had no immediate comment.

    NATO helicopters and fighter jets attacked two military border posts in northwest Pakistan on Saturday in the worst incident of its kind since 2001.

    The top U.S. military officer denied allegations by a senior Pakistani army official that the NATO attack was a deliberate act of aggression.

    General Martin Dempsey, chairman of the U.S. military's Joint Chiefs of Staff, told Reuters in an interview," The one thing I will say publicly and categorically is that this was not a deliberate attack.

Pakistan now completely unsafe for Americans thanks to Obama
The incident has given the army, which has ruled Pakistan for more than half of its history and sets security and foreign policy, some breathing room after facing strong criticism from both the Pakistani public and the United States after Osama bin Laden was killed in a secret raid by U.S. special forces in May.

    The al Qaeda leader had apparently been living in a Pakistani garrison town for years.

    Pakistanis criticized the military for failing to protect their sovereignty and U.S. officials wondered whether some members of military intelligence had sheltered him. Pakistan's government and military said they had no idea bin Laden was in the country.

    Protests have taken place in several cities every day since the NATO strike along the poorly defined border, where militants often plan and stage attacks.

    Pakistan military sources said Islamabad had cancelled a visit by a 15-member delegation, led by the director general of the Joint Staff, Lieutenant-General Mohammad Asif, to the United States that was to have taken place this week.

Lieutenant-General Mohammad Asif
 In an apparently unrelated attack, a bomb blew out a wall of a government official's office in Peshawar, the last big city on the route to Afghanistan, early on Thursday, police said. There were no reports of casualties.

Also in the eastern Afghan province of Logar, unknown gunmen abducted seven Pakistani engineers in Pul-e Alam, said provincial police chief Gulam Sakhi Rogh Lewanai.

The United States has long wanted Pakistan, whose military and economy depend heavily on billions of dollars in American aid, to crack down on militant groups that cross its unruly border to attack Western forces in Afghanistan.

    More recently, U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton asked Pakistan to bring all militant groups to the negotiating table in order to stabilise Afghanistan.

    The NATO attack makes Pakistani cooperation less likely.

   NATO hopes an investigation it promised will defuse the crisis and that confidence-building measures can repair ties.

Pissed off:  Pakistan will never forget this one
Critics say Pakistan has created a deadly regional mess by supporting militants like the al Qaeda-linked Haqqani network to act as proxies in Afghanistan and other groups to fight Indian forces in the disputed Kashmir region. 

    Pakistan says it has paid the highest price in the war on militancy. Thousands of soldiers and police have been killed.

    "The sacrifices rendered by Pakistan in the war on terror are more than any other country," Khar was quoted as saying. "But that does not mean we will compromise on our sovereignty."

What's Wrong with Aloof and Leading from Behind?


The calm before the storm

World News
By Dallas Darling
12/02/2011

    When Adolf Hitler wrote in "Mein Kamp" that, "Germany will be a world power or she will be nothing," he was referring to how Germany needed to unite and militarily mobilize to prove it was superior to surrounding nations. Inspired by past empires, like Greece and Rome, German philosophers saw the "Volk," or German people, as an ideal, a transcendent and immutable reality. This reality not only entitled Germany and its people to lead and rule the world, but it was the final phase in the historical development of the world. Hitler, Nazi officials, and leading thinkers, then, came to believe that in this new world order, Germany's role would be a civilizing force and one of leadership.

To its demise, America has always selectively chosen and embraced only certain narratives regarding World War Two.
Much like Germany, which saw itself as a victim of French and Russian and English aggression, America too has pursued a policy of victimization, mainly due to Japan's attacks on Pear Harbor and other colonial outposts. Like Germany, the United States has been fearful of humiliating defeats and wartime losses. This kind of destructive national spirit has often provoked an intensely nationalist reaction: an attempt to show that, like all of history's best victims, that America and Americans were really superior to their conquerors.(1)

     Recent reports that President Barack Obama and his administration claimed they were "largely aloof from the process" in negotiating whether U.S. forces could or would remain in Iraq past the December deadline withdrawal, has brought enormous criticism. This was followed by a strong condemnation from several sources when the Obama administration, regarding Iran's civilian and peaceful nuclear program, said it would carefully consult with Russia and China over the next several weeks to look at what other options are available. While detractors are labeling negotiations with Iraq and a small troop presence as an utter failure, they are declaring that consulting Russia and China is a major mistake.

Obama's resopnsibility:  Remains of U.S. soldier
But such elitist and unilateral policies mirror the rise of Nazism, and how it viewed the German people as ideals for the world, as transcendent and unchallengeable realities. It also contradicts the purpose and role of the United Nations, in which all nations of the world would lead, not just one. Those detractors that believe the U.S. should not consult Russia or China over Iran's nuclear enrichment, and that think the Obama administration should impose colonial rule onto Iraq, are similar to German leaders in the 1930's that believed they were morally superior to those of other states. The "spirit of America" is not the "spirit of the world." Neither is the "history of America" the "history of the world."

     In the last several decades, and according to the Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development, U.S. involvement in world affairs has meant a tripling of income for the richest 1% of Americans. It has meant 50 million Americans living in poverty with almost 10 million experiencing food scarcity. Leading in front has produced 60 million uninsured citizens, many of whom die each year due to a lack of medicines and preventive care. It has also meant spending more on militarism than the next 45 highest spending nations in the world combined. Leading in front has also caused a sharp increase in terrorist attacks, bombings, kidnappings, executions, and torture.

California, USA tent city
Interventionist ideologies have caused many sovereign nations to be militarily occupied and human rights violations to soar. Genocidal sanctions against countries like Somalia, Iraq and Cuba have caused 700,000 infants under the age of 5 to die, along with several million innocent civilians. The recent wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, coupled with past military invasions and occupations, have led to millions of deaths.

    Meanwhile, the U.S. continues to have the highest incarceration rate in the world and leads the world in violent crimes. With its own electoral processes and democratic institutions in doubt, even needing U.N. monitors, does the world really want the U.S. as a leader?

     For America, leading from behind would have prevented a genocidal war against Vietnam, followed by a humiliating defeat. Being aloof would have disallowed deadly and costly military coups and armed interventions in Iran, Guatemala, Chile, Nicaragua, Haiti, El Salvador, Panama, Indonesia, Cambodia and dozens of other places around the world. As the U.S. continues to try and maintain its leadership roles in the Middle East, Asia and the Pacific-mostly by establishing larger military contingents in Australia and Kuwait and exerting its control over Russia and China and the entire region-she may want to recall how Germany became a world power too, and how she then became nothing.

Study: Religious People Trust Atheists About As Much As They Do Rapists

Unfortunate people like these comprise about 1/2 of the U.S. population; Western "religions" doing governments' bidding in most cases; preachers telling congregations to "obey all  laws"

The Blaze
By Billy Hallowell
12/02/2011

    It’s no secret that many people — especially those with religious affiliations — have a lower level of trust for atheists and non-believers.

    Perhaps it’s the notion that those who lack a faith have, from the view of believers, no basis from which to secure a moral framework. Or maybe it’s just a lack of familiarity with those who lack spiritual guidance. Either way, polls and studies continue to make this pattern evident.

Pressure on military personnel to attend services affects morale
Yet another round of research is corroborating this notion, but with a bizarre twist. A new Canadian study claims to be one of the first psychological looks into the prejudice that many say exists against atheists and non-believers.

According to National Journal, researchers at the University of British Columbia and the University of Oregon have conducted a series of studies that further expose the deep distrust that exists against atheists. Considering that non-believers are a growing minority, this is certainly an interesting trend.

    A belief in a higher power, specifically one that is built on a moral code that is laid out in written form (i.e. the Bible), provides followers with moral parameters. Atheists, who lack such a code, are often seen as potentially being open to anything; they’re essentially “unpredictable” in the eyes of adherents. HotAir.com’s Allah Pundit, though, refutes this theory:

    That logic, that nonbelievers are less trustworthy because there’s no fear of damnation keeping them on the straight and narrow, gets thrown at atheists a lot and it never fails to make me nervous about the person who’s throwing it. There always seems to be an implicit threat to it — that if that person should lose his faith and the accompanying dread of hellfire, he might be capable of anything. That’s not how it works for most of us atheists, but if you think that’s how it might work for you, give the rest of the population a heads up if/when you start to have religious doubts so that we can prepare for your impending rampage.

     Some may contend that the discrimination that is purported to exist against atheists is overblown, but a Gallup poll (via Reason) from earlier this year seems to show an inherent bias — at least when it comes to electoral politics. People, as you will see below, are less likely to vote for atheists than they are for women, blacks, Baptists, Jews, Mormons and gays:



    “There’s this persistent belief that people behave better if they feel like God is watching them,” said Will Gervais, a doctoral candidate in the social psychology department at UBC (he also was the lead author of the study). “So if you’re playing by those rules, you’re going to see other people’s religious beliefs as signals of how trustworthy they might be.”

    The paper (PDF copy can be read here), which recaps Gervais’ research, is published in the current online issue of the Journal of Personality and Social Psychology. The piece includes six studies, which are all designed to measure peoples’ perceptions regarding how trustworthy non-believers are.

    National Journal reports:

    The first study asked 351 Americans from across the country to compare the trustworthiness of an atheist and a gay man, since both represent groups often described as threatening to majority religious values. They rated atheists significantly higher than gay men on distrust, though lower on levels of disgust.

     The second study recruited 105 UBC undergrads —they purposely targeted a more liberal sample from a less-religious nation — to test whether distrust of atheists is more pronounced than distrust of other groups, including Muslims. The students read a description of an untrustworthy man who pretended to leave insurance information after backing his car into a parked vehicle and were asked to say whether it was more likely the man was either a Christian, Muslim, rapist or an atheist. People were far more likely to say he was either an atheist or a rapist and not part of a religious group. They did not significantly differentiate atheists from rapists, something Mr. Gervais found disconcerting.

    Gervais, who is an atheist, called these revelations “pretty shocking.”

    “With rapists, they’re distrusted because they rape people. Atheists are viewed as sort of a moral wild card,” he explained.

    One of the other six studies also apparently found that people are more likely to hire someone for a job that requires higher levels of trust if the applicants appear religious. Atheists, though, would be more likely, according to the study, to be hired for jobs that require a lower level of trust.

Panetta: Israel must 'get to the damn table'


Panetta panics; Israel completely out of control
 

Al Jazeera
12/04/2011

"To be fair to Israel, they're now saying they should go back to the negotiating table," our correspondent said.

    "There's a problem now. I think both sides have got themselves into a corner - the Palestinian side has said they won't go back to the negotiating table unless the settlement building in East Jerusalem and the West 

Injured Israeli commando struggles with Palestinian activist
Panetta said he was troubled by Israel's growing isolation in the region. While Israel is not solely responsible for this, he said it could more actively attempt to reverse the trend.

"For example, Israel can reach out and mend fences with those who share an interest in regional stability, countries like Turkey and Egypt, as well as Jordan,'' he said.

    "This is not impossible. If the gestures are rebuked, the world will see those rebukes for what they are. And that is exactly why Israel should pursue them."

Turkey ties strained

    Turkey downgraded diplomatic relations with its former ally after Israel refused to apologise for its deadly raid on a Gaza-bound Turkish-flagged aid flotilla that killed nine pro-Palestinian activists last year.

    "To many, the fact that diplomatic ties were not severed, only downgraded, is sign that they can pick up again," Al Jazeera's Hashem Ahelbarra, reporting from Istanbul, said.

    "However, the official line from Ankara is that the first measure has to come from Israel. They have to make an apology and a compensation for the flotilla raid."

    Leon Panetta, US defence secretary, has urged Israel to go back to the negotiating table with Palestinians and to address what he described as the country's growing isolation in the Middle East. 

Obama loses game of chicken with Israel, pathetic Panetta squirms
In remarks made at the Brookings Institution in Washington on Friday, Panetta said: "The problem right now is we can’t get them [Israel's leaders] to the damn table to at least sit down and begin to discuss their differences.

   "We understand the concerns of Israel, we understand the concerns of the Palestinians.

    "If they sit at a table and work through those concerns and the United States can be of assistance in that process, then I think you have the beginning of what could be a process that could lead to a peace agreement.

    "But if they aren’t there, if they aren’t at the table, this will never happen. So first and foremost get to the damn table."

    Talks broke down in September 2010 over Israel's refusal to halt construction in illegal settlements in the occupied West Bank.

    Panetta urged Israel to "lean forward'' to achieve peace with the Palestinians.

    "Rather than undermining the Palestinian Authority, it is in Israel's interests to strengthen it by ... continuing to transfer Palestinian tax revenues and pursuing other avenues of co-operation,'' he said.

No Israeli reaction

    Al Jazeera's Tony Birtley in Jerusalem said there was no immediate reaction from the office of Binyamin Netanyahu, the Israeli prime minister.

    "[There's] no official reaction today because this is the day of rest, but I am sure tomorrow there will be some strong words from the government," he said.
 
Netanyahu:  Nutcase, determined to attack Iran
"They'll disagree quite strongly. They will argue, I think, that they are not isolating themselves [and that] this is being done for them and every measure they're taking is directed towards getting the peace process back on track."

    Panetta said it was in the interests of Israel as well as Turkey, a NATO ally of the US, to reconcile. 

   The defence secretary said he would take that message to Ankara when he visits there in two weeks.

    Gideon Levy, a columnist with the Israeli newspaper Haaretz, said that as long as occupation and operations such as 2008-2009 assault on Gaza continue, Israel will be more and more isolated.

    "Part of this isolation is made by Israel's own hands," he told Al Jazeera. "Obviously the present government, which is the most right-wing and most nationalist Israel has ever had, is contributing more to it than the previous government.

    "It's an existential threat for the future of Israel much more than the [alleged] Iran bomb."

    Panetta urged the Israelis to address their concerns about Egypt's political revolution through increased communication and co-operation with Egyptian authorities, "not by stepping away from them".

    Israel's relations with its neighbour are tense after protesters invaded the Israeli embassy in Cairo in September, angered by a clash that killed five border guards.

'Great threat'

    Commenting on Iran, Panetta underscored the US president's determination to stop the country from acquiring nuclear weapons.

   "No greater threat exists to the security and prosperity of the Middle East than a nuclear-armed Iran,'' he said, adding that Barack Obama has not ruled out using military force to stop Iran from going nuclear.

    However, Panetta cautioned against an Israeli or US military attack on Iran's nuclear facilities.

    He said such an attack would "at best" delay Iran's nuclear programme by one or two years.

    Among the unintended consequences, he said, would be an increase in regional support for Iran and the likelihood of Iranian retaliation against US forces and bases in the Middle East.

    It also would have harmful economic consequences and could lead to military escalation, he said.
"We have to be careful about the unintended consequences" of an Israeli or US attack, he said.

85-year-old says she was strip searched at JFK

Too bad Americans didn't drive the stake through TSA's heart last Christmas when they had them on the ropes; Holiday drinking, drugging, gluttony obviously more important; TSA pedophiles belligerent, omnipotent, refuse to cooperate in investigation

New York Daily News
12/04/2011

NEW YORK (AP) — 

An 85-year-old New York grandmother said Saturday she was injured and humiliated when she was strip searched at an airport after she asked to be patted down instead of going through a body scanner.

    Lenore Zimmerman said she was taken to a private room and made to take off her pants and other clothes after she asked to forgo the screening because she worried it would interfere with her defibrillator. She missed her flight and had to take one two-and-a-half hours later, she said.

"I'm hunched over. I'm in a wheelchair. I weigh under 110 pounds (50 kilograms)," she said from her winter home at seniors community in Coconut Creek, Florida.

She added, "Do I look like a terrorist? This was the worst experience."

But the Transportation Security Administration said in a statement Saturday no strip search was conducted.

    "While we regret that the passenger feels she had an unpleasant screening experience, TSA does not include strip searches as part of our security protocols and one was not conducted in this case," the statement read.

     Zimmerman was dropped off by her son at Kennedy Airport for a 1 p.m. flight Tuesday to Fort Lauderdale, Florida, on JetBlue, she said. She arrived at the ticket counter around 12:20 p.m. and headed for security in a wheelchair, her small, metal walker in her lap.

    She's been traveling to Florida for at least a decade and has never had a problem being patted down until now, she said. "I worry about my heart, so I don't want to go through those things," she said referring to the advanced image technology screening machines now in place at the airport.

TSA "Pinup"
As a result, she said she was taken into the private screening room by one agent and made to strip.

A review of closed-circuit television at the airport showed proper procedures were followed, Jonathan Allen, a TSA spokesman, said in a statement.

"Private screening was requested by the passenger, it was granted and lasted approximately 11 minutes," the statement read. "TSA screening procedures are conducted in a manner designed to treat all passengers with dignity, respect and courtesy and that occurred in this instance."

    The private screening was not recorded.

   Zimmerman, who spends half the year in Long Beach, New York, said she banged her shin during the process and it bled "like a pig," partly because she is on blood-thinning medication. She said an emergency medical technician patched her up, but she was told to see a doctor when she arrived in Florida to make sure the wound didn't get infected. There are no records indicating medical attention was called on her behalf.

    "I don't know what triggered this. I don't know why they singled me out," she said.

TSA pedophiles not joking
Her son Bruce Zimmerman said he'd like to see someone fired, and screeners re-trained after his mother's ordeal.

"My mother is a little old woman. She's not disruptive or uncooperative," he said Saturday. "I don't understand how this happened."

He said she's had an increasingly difficult time traveling, especially since her husband died a few years ago. She has two grandchildren, and her older son, a doctor, died in 2007.

    Meanwhile, Lenore Zimmerman said she was healing, planned to go to the grocery store on Saturday and take it easy. She does not plan to head back to an airport until April when she returns to New York.

    "Thank goodness," she said. "It will give me some time to brace myself for the return flight."

Female scientist charged with child molesting and bestiality is back at work at the Centers for Disease Control


Sick people with their hands on genetically engineered H5N1 - H1N1 recombinant viruses

Daily Mail
12/01/2011

The senior government scientist facing child molestation and bestiality charges has returned to her high-powered job at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention in Atlanta, Georgia.  

    Dr Kimberly Quinlan Lindsey, 44, is accused of engaging in 'immoral and indecent' sex acts with a a six-year-old boy. 

Accused child molester Lindsey
She and her live-in boyfriend, 42-year-old Thomas Westerman, were arrested in October and are both free on bail. Mr Westerman is charged with two counts of child molesting.

The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reported Dr Lindsey has returned to work at the government's top research lab for communicable diseases and medical and health issues.

The CDC will not comment on her case, though officials said they are aware of the charges.

 

    The acts are alleged to have taken place between January 2010 to August 2011, according to authorities.

    An investigation was started into the child molestation charges after a medical professional alerted police.

Westerman
Durring the investigation into the alleged molestation, authorities uncovered evidence Dr. Lindsey may have committed bestiality.

    The bestiality does not involve the child.

    Neighbors told the Atlanta NBC affiliate off camera that they do not believe the charges and spoke highly of both.

    Lindsey is the deputy director for the Laboratory Science Policy and Practice Program Office.

    In the last 12 years while working for the agency she has received 12 awards for outstanding performance on projects and programs.

Responsible for the safety of the World - were the sheep aware
Before this she was the senior health scientist in the Office of Public Health Preparedness and Response which oversees the allocation of $1.5billion for the preparation for terrorism.

   She got a doctoral degree in immunology and molecular pathogenesis from Emory University.

    Westerrman works at the CDC as a night watchman.

    CDC spokesman Tom Skinner said Lindsey is a deputy director within the Office of Surveillance, Epidemiology and Laboratory Services at the agency, while Westerman is a resource management specialist in the same office.

    A spokesman for the agency told CNN it was aware of the case, but said it could not comment on personnel issues.
