A United Nations official known for blaming the U.S. for unrest in the Middle East has angered critics again by blaming the Boston Marathon bombings on “American global domination.” "The American global domination project is bound to generate all kinds of resistance in the post-colonial world," Richard Falk, the UN Human Rights Council's Palestine monitor, wrote in an article for Foreign Policy Journal titled, “A Commentary on the Marathon Murders." "It is soon to tell, and the somewhat hysterical Boston dragnet for the remaining at large and alive suspect does suggest that the wounds of 9/11 are far from healed," he wrote. "We should be asking ourselves at this moment, 'How many canaries will have to die before we awaken from our geopolitical fantasy of global [...]
Teaching Math in America from 1950 – 2013 or the Dumbing down of America Last week I purchased a burger at Burger King for $1.58. The counter girl took my $2 and I was digging for my change when I pulled 8 cents from my pocket and gave it to her. She stood there, holding the nickel and 3 pennies, while looking at the screen on her register. I sensed her discomfort and tried to tell her to just give me two quarters, but she hailed the manager for help. While he tried to explain the transaction to her, she stood there and cried. Why do I tell you this? Because of the evolution in teaching math since the 1950s: 1. Teaching Math In 1950s A logger sells a truckload of lumber for $100. His cost of production is 4/5 of the price. What is his profit? 2. Teaching Math In [...]

The United States and Israel jointly developed a sophisticated computer virus nicknamed Flame that collected critical intelligence in preparation for cyber-sabotage attacks aimed at slowing Iran’s ability to develop a nuclear weapon, according to Western officials with knowledge of the effort. The massive piece of malware was designed to secretly map Iran’s computer networks and monitor the computers of Iranian officials, sending back a steady stream of intelligence used to enable an ongoing cyberwarfare campaign, according to the officials. The effort, involving the National Security Agency, the CIA and Israel’s military, has included the use of destructive software such as the so-called Stuxnet virus to cause malfunctions in Iran’s nuclear enrichment equipment. The [...]
Russia Today is reporting that the Iranian ambassador to Moscow says that Iran can and will hit United States Targets. The United States says that this is dangerous rhetoric but has passed it off as typical of Iran. On Wednesday the Iranian ambassador to Moscow, Seyed Mahmoud-Reza Sajjadi declared that Iran has the capabilities of carrying out military strikes on US interests around the globe. This comes after President Obama announced the United States would freeze all Iranian assets held in the US. The executive order which was signed on Monday was in reaction to what the US is calling deceptive practices by Iran. "The issue of a military attack from America on the Islamic Republic of Iran has been on the agenda for several years," said Sajjadi. The building provocation [...]

Voicing security concerns and the increased military influence of China, Australia and President Obama have reached an agreement, which will deploy a company of US Marines, approximately 250 personnel, into Australia. The contingent is expected to grow to 2,500 eventually. China is not to thrilled with the prospect and a communist party controlled editorial warned that it was "certain" that if "Australia uses its military bases to help the US harm Chinese interests, then Australia itself will be caught in the crossfire". The move is seen as a shift by the Obama Administration from the Middle East to Asia. Obama is on an official visit to Australia and will visit a memorial in Darwin to honour US and Australian soldiers killed during World War II. After his stop in Darwin, the [...]
Occupy Portland: Protesters Sing F@#k the USA October 15, 2011 - Protesters at Saturday's Occupy Portland demonstration vented some of their anger at the capitalist system by setting the phrase "F*** the U.S.A." to music and performing it. With a jester hat-wearing guitarist, shirtless drummer and heavily bearded, long-haired bassist, the pick-up band was not short on characters. There were no other lyrics, so it's unclear what exactly the participants wanted or hoped to achieve. via Occupy Portland: Protesters Sing Fck the USA - YouTube. UPDATE: The unionized public employees of Oregon are among the major supporters of Occupy Portland. It’s nice to see how much they appreciate the taxpayers who pay their salaries.
