Afghan poll crisis:
Defiant Abdullah claims victory

BBC News [UK], by Staff

Original Article

Posted By:Attercliffe, 7/8/2014 8:46:13 AM

Afghan presidential contender Abdullah Abdullah has claimed victory in last month´s poll, despite results giving a lead to his rival, Ashraf Ghani. Addressing supporters in Kabul, Mr Abdullah repeated claims that the election process was marred by fraud. US Secretary of State John Kerry had earlier warned against a power grab, amid reports that Mr Abdullah was planning a "parallel government". Meanwhile, a bomb near Kabul has killed 16 people, including four Nato troops. Ten civilians and two police officers were also reportedly killed in the attack on a clinic near Bagram, home to the largest US base in the

Obama and Kerry aren´t managing foreign affairs very well. They are better suited at lying and corruption, so cannot accomplish real tasks.

The 4 NATO troops killed by the bomb were most likely Americans. Safe bet that Obama won´t invite the parents and spouses of these 4 US soldiers to the WH. Loss of 4 brave US soldiers means that approximately 80% of the US deaths In Afghanistan occurred under Obama, but this percentage will never be reported by our media.

While President Obama works on his golf swing, British Prime Minister David Cameron has cut his summer holiday short to preside over an emergency crisis meeting about the Islamic State in Iraq. Perhaps Cameron´s mind has been concentrated by stories like this one--a transcript of an interview with a British-born jihadist on the popular teenage chat-room Ask.fm. [Snip] I´m sure we´ll all be able to sleep much more comfortably in our beds at night now that we know the young British recruits out fighting for the Caliphate are not being unduly troubled by unpleasant insect life and that when they

Islamic State gunmen are continuing their sweep across Iraq and are poised at the gates of a town just north of Baghdad--despite American air strikes intended to thwart the extremist group’s advances. Commanders from the fundamentalist militia are massing near Qara Tappa just 70 miles north of the capital, according to Iraqi security sources and a local official. [Snip] Disputing accounts from the UN refugee agency, which had estimated that there could be tens of thousands of Yazidis trapped in the area and surrounded by Islamic State fighters, Pentagon officials said there were a maximum of around 4,000.

A new music video captures the palpable feeling of unity among the Jewish people in Israel and abroad, a feeling that grew in the tragedy of the abduction and murder of the three Israeli teens, and which has swelled in the current counter-terror operation in Gaza. [Snip] "We have seen such a beautiful rise in Jewish unity since the kidnappings and through the war in Gaza. But we shouldn´t need to be brought closer together only when our enemies are trying to destroy us. The more we unite, the more protection we will have from our enemies," wrote Green.

The Anti-Defamation League (ADL) has written to complain to the US Postmaster General, after receiving widespread reports that US post offices around America have been refusing to accept mail to Israel. In the last several days ADL reports that it has received complaints from Massachusetts, Michigan and New Jersey, revealing postal customers were incorrectly told that the US Postal Service is not accepting mail for Israel due to Operation Protective Edge in Gaza. "The postal employees have told these individuals that current USPS policy says that mail to Israel cannot be accepted because of the current crisis,” said Abraham H. Foxman, ADL

David Cameron is likely to put plans for to rescue thousands of refugees trapped in northern Iraq on hold after the US said that the crisis is not as bad as feared. The Prime Minister yesterday signalled that RAF Chinook helicopters could be involved in the rescue operation amid fears that 30,000 refugees were trapped on Mount Sinjar. However, the Pentagon this morning said that a rescue operation is "far less likely" after US special forces found that the number of refugees on the mountain is closer to 5,000. They said that those who are on the mountain surrounded by

Amid diplomatic tensions between US President Barack Obama´s administration and Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu, the US halted a shipment of air to ground missiles to Israel last month during Israel´s offensive in the Gaza Strip, according to a report in the Wall Street Journal. In July, Israel requested "through military-to-military channels a large number of Hellfire missiles", a first batch of which was about to be released to Israel, the Wall Street Journal reported, citing Israeli and American officials. But the Pentagon immediately put the shipment on hold, and top officials at the White House instructed US defense agencies to consult with

Canada Slams UNHRC
Gaza Committee ´Sham´

Canadian Foreign Minister John Baird sharply criticized the UN Human Rights Council (UNHRC) appointment of a committee to investigate accusations of "war crimes" in Operation Protective Edge--a committee headed by an outspoken opponent of the Jewish state. The "UN Human Rights Council continues to be a sham for advancing human rights. It´s an utter shame and will do nothing to promote peace and dignity in Gaza for the Palestinian people," wrote Baird on his Twitter account Monday. The Canadian minister has previously vocalized his criticism of the UNHRC probe, saying last month when it was announced that

U.S. President Barack Obama on Wednesday told Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu that it was important to reach an agreement on a permanent ceasefire in Gaza. The two spoke by telephone before the 72-hour ceasefire expired and before it was announced that it was extended for five more days. “The President reaffirmed the United States’ support for Egypt’s mediation efforts and underscored the importance of achieving a sustainable outcome that ensures Israel’s security and addresses Gaza’s humanitarian crisis,” said a White House statement following the phone call. Hamas violated the 72-hour ceasefire three hours before it

The SAS is on the ground in Iraq as part of the operation to rescue 30,000 “desperate” Yazidi refugees, it emerged on Wednesday, as US forces landed on Mount Sinjar. American officials confirmed that a combined contingent of US Marines, special forces and USAID disaster assistance experts had "briefly" landed on Mt Sinjar just hours after David Cameron pledged that Britain would help with the mission. The Prime Minister pledged to “get these people off that mountain” as he suggested that British helicopters could be used within days to save the Yazidi refugees “exposed, starving and dying of thirst” in

The Israel Air Force attacked targets in Gaza on Wednesday night, the IDF Spokesperson’s Unit confirmed in a statement. The attacks came after Gaza terrorists fired rockets at southern Israel, the statement said. “The IDF is prepared for this possibility and is determined to continue to maintain the security of the State of Israel,” the statement noted. Gaza terrorists fired a barrage of rockets towards southern Israel on Wednesday night, just moments before one ceasefire was set to end and a new one to begin. The Iron Dome anti-missile system intercepted one rocket over the city of Netivot. Two other

Conservative radio host Rush Limbaugh argued Tuesday that Robin Williams committed suicide because of his “leftist world view.” “What is the left’s world view in general?” Mr. Limbaugh asked listeners. “If you had to attach, not a philosophy, but an attitude to a leftist world view. It’s one of pessimism, and darkness, sadness.

It’s official: Obamaism is dead. Hillary Clinton killed it. It wasn’t so much a mercy killing as an expedient one, but that’s politics in the best sense. The important thing is that she broke the Democratic omertà code by stating the obvious: The president’s policy of having America sit on the sidelines of a burning world is a disaster that threatens our national security. The power of her argument is confirmed by a report that a testy Obama called it “horses–t” to congressional leaders. Even guru David Axelrod blasted her, proving she scored a direct hit on the Chicago mafia’s central nervous

The brassiness, dishonesty and shamelessness as she slides into yet another presidential campaign season is enough to choke that old Arkansas draft mule of a husband she hitched her career to. The scheming calculation of it all would make Lady Macbeth take to the bed for blushing. How on earth did such a crafty street fighter get so completely trounced by such a naive rookie like Barack Obama in 2008? That Mrs. Clinton would up and disavow President Obama’s policy of ceding the entire world to evil forces — a policy she embraced and enforced for four years as his top

The global impact of climate change is “the biggest challenge of all that we face right now,” Secretary of State John Kerry told an audience in Hawaii Wednesday, putting an issue he feels passionately about at the center of a speech entitled “U.S. Vision for Asia-Pacific Engagement.” “The science is screaming at us,” he said. “Ask any kid in school. They understand what a greenhouse is, how it works, why we call it the greenhouse effect. They get it.” “If you accept the science,” Kerry continued. “If you accept that the science is causing climate to change, you have to

Going by the numbers, Apple fits into a stereotype of many tech companies in Silicon Valley: its workforce is overwhelmingly white and male. Overall, 70 percent of Apple employees are men as opposed to 30 percent women, and 55 percent are white, according to statistics provided by Apple. In addition, 15 percent of its overall workforce is Asian, 11 percent is Hispanic, and 7 percent is Black. (Snip) In the letter, Cook added that Apple´s definition of diversity extends beyond race, gender, and ethnicity to include such categories as "sexual orientation, veteran status, and disabilities."

An electrifying midterm rallying cry on a slow summer news day. Boehner, incidentally, isn’t one of the crappy-asses, she says. She doesn’t name names there, but she’s been known to diverge from grassroots conservatives in these matters before. What would happen, though, if Boehner turned around and made a deal with Harry Reid on amnesty in September? One of the goals of Obama’s looming power grab over legalization is to scare Republican leaders with the thought that Latino voters will be so grateful, they’ll break even harder for Democrats in 2016.

SWAT teams and angry protesters clashed in a small St. Louis suburb for a third day Tuesday, following the death of unarmed black teenager Michael Brown. The eruption of protests and violence has been a long time coming. While I certainly do not condone rioting, examining the conditions surrounding Brown’s death — and the deaths of several other unarmed black men killed by law enforcement recently — makes clear that community reactions like those in Ferguson, Mo., are bound to happen. America has continued to isolate poor black people in economically depressed neighborhoods under increasingly oppressive police tactics that breed

Washington - Defense Department officials said late Wednesday that United States airstrikes and Kurdish fighters had broken the Islamic militants’ siege of Mount Sinjar, allowing thousands of the Yazidis trapped there to escape. An initial report from about a dozen Marines and Special Operations forces who arrived on Tuesday and spent 24 hours on the northern Iraqi mountain said that “the situation is much more manageable,” a senior Defense official said in an interview. Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel, speaking to reporters Wednesday night at Andrews Air Force Base, Md., said it was “far less likely now” that the United States

California lawmakers are poised to enact a regulation requiring every college and university that receives public funding to define consensual sex in a way that attempts to micro-manage everyone’s sexual affairs. The first-in-the-nation legislation already passed California’s state Senate by a vote of 27-4 in May, The Associated Press reports. If the bill passes the assembly this month, it will then go to the desk of Gov. Jerry Brown. The bill, which is based on guidance from the Obama administration, requires an “affirmative consent standard” that school administrators would use to determine whether a sexual assault has occurred. The standard would define

President Obama said Thursday that “now is the time for healing” after a series of clashes between protesters and police over the shooting of a black teenager in Ferguson, Mo., but he also called for an open and transparent investigation “to see that justice is done” in the case. Speaking from Martha’s Vineyard, Mass., where he is on vacation, Obama said that many Americans “have been deeply disturbed” by images of violence in the St. Louis suburb following the police shooting Saturday afternoon of Michael Brown, an unarmed 18-year-old African American who was headed to technical college this week. “When something like
