U.S. says Russian pullback "far too slow"

A top U.S. general visiting Georgia condemned the pullout as "far too little, far too slow".

Well, when was "Mission Accomplished" in Iraq? May 1st 2003! If the Russian pull-out is going at a snail's pace, then the USA's is like continental drift.

It has been said that George Bush doesn't know the meaning of the word "hypocrisy" - but then again he doesn't know the meaning of most words.

Pure genius mixed with common sense

Gulf 'dead zone' suffocating fish and livelihoods

So why is oxygen disappearing from fishing waters in the Gulf of Mexico? The answer, scientists say, is found hundreds of miles to the north, up the Mississippi River in corn country.

Farmers in Iowa and across the Midwest use tons of nitrogen and phosphorous to make their cornfields more productive, which allows the farmers to take advantage of high corn prices resulting from growing demand from ethanol factories and developing countries.

Response stolen from Mike Rivero of because I could not put it better myself:

So, let us recap.

Ethanol is sold to us on the claim that it is "carbon neutral" (which it isn't when you add in the emissions form the processing itself), and therefore a way to deal with the crisis-de-jour, human-caused global warming (at a time when the Earth's temperature is actually in decline). Since ethanol contains less energy than an equivalent amount of gasoline, drivers must buy and burn more of it to drive the same distance, which means it is actually more expensive per mile than gasoline. Plus, Germany has just banned ethanol because they discovered it actually damages the fuel system on cars designed to run on gasoline, thereby driving up the cost of car repairs (and the carbon output from the factories that make those spare hoses and gaskets).

As a side effect of turning corn into ethanol, food prices went through the roof. Crop surpluses vanished, and as a consequence, weather and flood-induced food shortages occurred right here in the United States.

And now we find out that the run-off from all this intensified corn farming is creating oxygen-free dead zones, killing off another source of food, deep ocean fish.

So what we have here is a media hoax used to sell us a product that we did not really need that costs more and does more harm to the world than the non-existent crisis supposedly did.

It sounds good in Al Gore's TV Commercials, but it has not been thought out very well. It may be good public relations, but it is not good science.

But then, snake oil never is.

Hey Mike, How about this one...The bigger picture?

I have been increasingly concerned, when reading various forums and bulletin boards at the level of ignorance displayed regarding the Russian intervention in Georgia... People claiming that this is a dark return to Soviet invasions and an expansion westwards of the evil soviet empire....

Oh dear. I guess these people get their news exclusively from the mainstream media.

Here are but two examples that stand out.

1. "We should finish what we started in world war two and go in and finish those Russians once and for all." Ignoring the fact that Russia was on OUR side in World War 2 and the 10 MILLION troops they lost to Hitler's army was critical to the allied victory, without which this Blog would be in German. Any call to attack a Russia that still has 6000 nuclear weapons is plain suicide.

2. "When Georgia gets a US backed puppet in power, those Russians won't be invading her anymore." OK, It is the fact that the current President of Georgia IS an American puppet and launched a genocide against Russian nationals in an American backed sneak attack that CAUSED this current crisis.

The mainstream media has been woeful and rediculously inept at truthful reporting about what really happened. That is why I get my news from a very wide range of sources. News items from all over the world, east, west , north and south, bulletin boards and forums devoted to those with inside knowledge of international geo-political events, newsgroups of the same. etc etc...

Speaking of what really happened.

I get some of my news from an excellent resource online called This site has a slight bias against Israel, sure, but the news on the site is generally rather accurate. It is from this site that I discovered how much Israel was involved in the Georgian incursion into South Ossetia. Mike Rivero is the site's owner and has a marvelous instinct for what is happening. He also has a descernment that is very rarely wrong. (He hasn't fallen for the "no plane hit the pentagon" nonsense for example).

So here's the thing Mike, Israeli and American "advisers" were in Georgia, training the Georgian troops to carry out urban clearances. They utilised the American experience of Iraq and the Israeli experience of dealing with Palestinian areas to train the Georgians in the same techniques. Georgia then invaded South Ossetia to deal with the pesky seperatists in the same way Israel deals with Palestine. Why?

Here is my take on this. Bigger picture... Israel is in the advanced stages of preparations for an attack on Irans nuclear facilities. (NOT weapons facilities, as NO international body, intelligence agency or anyone else has found ANY evidence that such facilities exist) The Iranian nuclear facilities are supported by Russian expertise in the form of many Russian nuclear experts. Russia has told the world loudly and proudly (though completely ignored by the western mainstream media) that they retain the right to use nuclear arms pre-emptively against any nuclear threat to them or their interests, ie Irans nuclear programme. Russia has made it clear that they will act to protect Russian nationals.

If Israel is planning to launch nuclear attacks against the Iranian nuclear facilities, and those facilities contain many Russian nationals, What will Russia's response be? I think that Israel were using this attack to gauge Russia's commitment to Russian nationals in the face of a threat to Russian national interest. IF Israel was wondering if Russia's words are mere bluster, I guess that they now have their answer writ large in the form of the rapid and heavy defeat of the Israeli trained Georgian army.

Had the attack gone to plan, I posit that South Ossetia would be under Georgian control, Thousands more Russians would be dead, most people in the west would never have heard of South Ossetia as the mainstream media would have ignored this genocide completely and Isreal would be giving the all-clear to attack Iran with nuclear bunker busters.

What do you think Mike?

Update: I was right...

Russia has crushed the Georgian upstarts and have ceased military operations WITHOUT annexing the country. They said that they had no intention to annex or destroy Georgia, nor did they plan even the regime change that America keeps attempting in various countries around the world.

This has been a remarkably restrained intervention by Russia. They did what they set out to do and removed the Georgian threat from the nominally independent regions of South Ossetia and Abkahzia.

The western media's constant bias and lies have been a source of deep embarrassment. America has been made to look foolish for provoking this war in the first place, then been shown to be utterly impotent to act in any way during it, and then being proven wrong on Russia's intent. Russia bitch-slapped Georgia into place inside 4 days. Hopefully Georgia will NEVER become a member of NATO now and I am utterly appalled at David Cameron's desire to speed up that process. Cameron is an ignorant fool and a puppet of the same Rothschild's new world order that Georgian President Mikheil Saakashvili was pleading with the west to protect.

I hope that the peace in Georgia can be achieved with the swift removal from power of the butcher and child killer, Saakashvili. and I hope to see him stand trial for crimes against humanity.

The human evolution...

This crisis in Georgia is a time for reflection. A time to make a choice.

The Georgian President has called for international aid to defend the future world order. This is clearly a call to defend the Rothschild sphere of influence and their plans for a unipolar world order.

This is not good for humanity. We are facing the possibility that the world could change massively in a very short time. Whose side are you going to be on? Think long and hard about this.

If you said American, or Russian, or any other nation - then you could be calling for the destruction of humanity.

I recommend being on the side of peace and humanity and self.

"There is NO road to peace, peace IS the road" - Ghandi.

The Russian retaliation against western backed aggression is a necessary evil to stop the new world order in its tracks. Now each of us should visualise how this will play out peacefully with humanity emerging as the winner.

My take on the Georgia vs Russia thing?

I say thing, because (to paraphrase the late great Bill Hicks) you need TWO sides for it to be a war. the Georgians have crumbled.

My take on it? Well, it transpires that the USA and Israel were training the Georgian forces to destroy those pesky South Ossetian separatists. Using techniques perfected against Iraqi insurgents, Afghan tribes and Palestinians. The Georgians used the cover of a supine international media, distracted by the launch of the Olympics, to start a brutal war crime against civilians. This is NOT Russian propaganda as there are videos on youtube of independent witnesses, some American, describing their personal witness to the crimes against humanity that the Georgian military, backed up by American, Isreali and Ukranian mercenaries committed. Well over a thousand civilians killed in cold blood. Men, women, children, the elderly and the ill were blown to bits by hand grenades and rockets.

Jewish Georgian minister, Temur Yakobshvili: Thanks to Israeli training, we're fending off Russia

Temur should think again, look out of his window and see the thousands of Israeli trained troops deserting and going home. The mistake made by the Georgians (in reality the Washington puppets) was to treat the South Ossetians like the Israelis treat the Palestinians, and expect only a Palestinian style response. They should have treat the South Ossetians like the Russians, then they may have thought twice before biting a huge bear on the ass and hoping that it would not notice.

The west has absolutley ZERO credibility to tell Russia to stop and withdraw. Time and again the west has interfered in the internal politics of former soviet republics. The west broke up Serbia and granted independence to Kosovo without ANY consideration for the Serbians or the Russians. Outside of the former soviet republics, The west invaded and still occupies Iraq and Afghanistan. The west launched "SHOCK AND AWE" killing thousands of civilians on the deliberate lie of WMD and links to Al Queda. A lie that the Whithouse had to manufacture a faked letter to support. They spouted the lie also based on what they knew was another faked letter about yellowcake Uranium from Niger. When the administration had to rely on what they knew at the time were faked documents to support their invasion, it is clear that they were deliberately and knowingly, with malice aforethought, conspiring to use deliberate lies to provide a reason to illegally invade a sovereign nation. They knew that the letter linking Saddam to Al-Queda was fake, because THEY FAKED IT!)

The hypocracy and the stench coming from the west and the western mainstream media is revolting. America miscalculated on this BIG TIME, like they did in pushing Israel to invade Lebanon in 2006. The Israelis had their asses kicked big time in Lebanon, and the Georgians are having their sorry asses handed to them on a plate now.

To any other American ally thinking of doing America's bidding by attacking one of your neighbours.... Look at what happened to the Israelis and Georgians. Tell America to fuck the hell off!

Let us hope that the Russians secure their objectives quickly, with minimal loss of life and then they can withdraw. They have stated many times in the last few days that they only seek to make Georgia safe for Russians. That they do NOT intend to annexe Georgia. ONLY time can tell if this is true. I hope and pray that it is.

Now this is what PISSES me Off!!!

Primates 'face extinction crisis'

Now this is what pisses me off. People hark on about global warming and the gas CO2. With no evidence to back up their theories, they spout alarmist nonsense all over the media. Yet when there is a REAL ecological crisis, happening now, on a greater scale than the 'global was warming but it has now stopped' so-called crisis, what do we get? Fuck All!!!

The tropical deforestation is:

A) real.
B) tangible.
C) measurable.
D) causing actual mass extinctions.
E) causing CO2 in the atmosphere to increase more rapidly.
F) curable.

Unlike the (so called) global warming, this is something that we ARE responsible for and that we CAN do something about!

Whenever anyone mentions cars or flights as being inherantly evil, remind them of deforestation.
