I am tired of people saying that they support the troops by placing a sticker on the back of there car.
They would never send there child into war nor would they consider joining the service thierself.

Nice! BBC report says that British nuclear weapons were poorly gaurded and could be launched without codes or working knowledge of missile systems. The report also states that modern sub captains can still launch their Trident missiles without codes because "the safeguards that other countries built in... were not relevant to British submarines."Nice!

"Hey what's up, Iraninan foreign ministry, it's me Dave. I know you guys don't really like my country (Israel) so I was wondering if I could get you to pay m for information about Israeli evacuation plans, etc."
That's how I imagine David Shamir's email to the Iraninan consulate went.
The psychiatrist sent similar messages to the Iranian embassies in England and Turkey.
He contacted the Russian Intelligence service to find out how exactly one becomes a spy.
Mr. Shamir was also found to be in possession of marijuana.
This is a reminder that 007 films and Pot don't mix."Hey what's up, Iraninan foreign ministry, it's me Dave. I know you... more

Currently Nepal has been suffering with pathetic transitional crisis and ethno-regional insurgency. In the meantime, we got threshed by bonus terrorism in Nepal, named as administrative terrorism. This time principal actors are our cabinet and public service commission who are going ahead to add new style of terrorism in Nepal. Therefore, we Nepalese people have to involve ourselves directly in the counter attack to get rid on such administrative terrorism otherwise Nepalese administrative software mechanism /bureaucracy will collapse functionally and structurally very soon.

Ted Pike's gripping video expose dramatizes how abuses by false Zionist leadership, with Evangelical Christian support, have helped create ... all » international Arab terrorism. This powerful documentary explains how Zionists have used a false religious argument to ram a cruel, unbiblical return of Jews to Palestine down the throat of the Arab world. Such injustice, if allowed to continue, will only lead to increased terrorism, loss of freedoms, and Mideast war.
This Video Documents:
* The Talmudic basis of hate and racism that fuels Zionist aggression * What really happened in the West Bank under Sharon's 2002 invasion * How loss of freedoms under "homeland security" directly results from unconditional support of Israel * How U.S. takeover of Afghanistan, Iraq, Saudi Arabia, etc. actually sets up Israel as ruler of the mid-eastTed Pike's gripping video expose dramatizes how abuses by false Zionist... more
Alex Jones' brand new documentary Endgame charts the history of the elite blueprint for social domination and control, outlining the ultimate plans that those who consider themselves the anointed have for our planet.
The first section of the film documents the rise of the banking cartels, who since 1800 have funded both sides of almost every war. Endgame charts the usurpation of the British economy by the Rothchild family who went on to bankroll all factions during the first world war providing armaments companies through banks in France, Austria, Germany and England.
Endgame then documents the fallout of the great war and the attempts to form a controlling League of Nations, which was ultimately blocked by Congress. Such frustration on the part of the elite led to the rise of two factions, fascists and Fabian socialists. Endgame documents how bankers again funded both sides during WW2 which ultimately led to the creation of the UN and the beginning of the movement to implement three power blocs via incremental globalism.

What he actually said was:
"Emam goft een rezhim-e eshghalgar-e qods bayad az safheh-ye ruzegar mahv shavad."
A word for word translation gives us the following....
Emam: Imam (Khomeini, leader of the 1979 revolution); Goft: said; Een: this; Rezhim-e eshghalgar: occupying regime; Qods: Jorusalem; Bayad: must; Az: from; Safheye: page of; Ruzegar: times; Mahv shaved: vanish.
"Imam said this occupying regime in Jerusalem must vanish from the page of times."

?Check it out. It's actually a jet engine," says Johnathan Goodwin, with a low whistle. "This thing is gonna be even cooler than I thought." We're hunched on the floor of Goodwin's gleaming workshop in Wichita, Kansas, surrounded by the shards of a wooden packing crate. Inside the wreckage sits his latest toy--a 1985-issue turbine engine originally designed for the military. It can spin at a blistering 60,000 rpm and burn almost any fuel. And Goodwin has some startling plans for this esoteric piece of hardware: He's going to use it to create the most fuel-efficient Hummer in history.
Goodwin, a 37-year-old who looks like Kevin Costner with better hair, is a professional car hacker. The spic-and-span shop is filled with eight monstrous trucks and cars--Hummers, Yukon XLs, Jeeps--in various states of undress. His four tattooed, twentysomething grease monkeys crawl all over them with wrenches and welding torches.
Johnathan Goodwin is a 37-year-old professional car hacker out of Kansas that's making a name for himself by taking muscle cars and doubling their horsepower, and at the same time quadrupling their mileage and cutting emissions by 80 percent.
His latest project: creating a super-efficient electric hybrid Hummer H3 by putting in an electric motor plus a military-grade 60,000 rpm turbine modified to run on biodiesel, doubling horsepower from 300 to 600, getting 60 miles per gallon, and doing zero to 60 in five seconds. It'll also have a hydrogen-injection system that will cut the already low emissions by half.
He's currently converting a 1987 Jeep Wagoneer to biodiesel for Arnold Schwarzenegger, and a 1960 Lincoln Continental into a biodiesel-electric hybrid for Neil Young.

Mr Brown told an audience of businessmen at Mansion House that he wanted "to work internationally for a ban on the use, production, transfer and stockpiling of those cluster munitions which cause unacceptable harm to civilians".
However, as he made the announcement, British officials were at the Convention on Conventional Weapons in Geneva, negotiating for the continued use of controversial Israeli-made M85 explosives.
The M85, a so-called smart-bomb that "self-destructs", has a failure record of between 1% and 2%, according to the government.
Cluster munitions are weapons that on impact disperse several hundred smaller munitions - also known as bomblets, similar to land mines - over areas the size of two or three football pitches.
The only organisation to attempt to measure the numbers injured by unexploded munitions is Handicap International, which estimates that 98% of the 13,000 recorded victims were civilians rather than military.
When Israeli forces dropped M85s during last summer's bombardment of southern Lebanon, the UN mine action coordination centre there said the failure rate was between 6% and 10%. Many parts of Lebanon remain littered with unexploded bomblets.
Steve Goose, the director of the arms division of Human Rights Watch, said: "Nobody like Brown, who wants to get rid of arms that cause unacceptable harm to civilians, would back the use of a weapon that has a 6-10% failure rate."
The British army used M85s in Basra, and Human Rights Watch fieldwork found cluster munitions aimed at military targets had killed civilians, with many failing to self-destruct at the time of attack.

The photographer, Bilal Hussein Zaidon, faces charges in the Iraqi Central Court based on claims by the US military that he is linked to the insurgency in Iraq, Pentagon officials announced Monday.
Hussein, an Iraqi who lives in the western Anbar province city of Ramadi, has been held without charge by the U.S. military since April 2006
The evidence is based on insurgent propaganda and bomb materials supposedly found in his house.
Associated Press chief executive officer and president Tom Curley said the agency has "grave concerns" that Hussein's rights are being "ignored and even abused" and called on the United States to release the photographer.
"The steps the U.S. military is now taking continue to deny Bilal his right to due process and, in turn, may deny him a chance at a fair trial," Curley said.
One of Hussein's photographs was among a series of 20 AP photographs that won the Pulitzer Prize for breaking news photography in 2005.The photographer, Bilal Hussein Zaidon, faces charges in the Iraqi Central Court based... more
