Nato WARNED planes not

International air safety agencies have been accused of ignoring a warning from Nato that Ukrainian rebels possessed missiles capable of hitting aircraft flying as high as MH17. Nato’s Supreme Allied Commander in Europe, General Philip M Breedlove, made the announcement in Washington on June 30. That was more than two weeks before the Malaysia Airlines flight was shot out of the sky at 33,000ft. [Snip] Last night a Nato spokesman confirmed that military leaders had “made public statements” about the presence of missile systems in rebel hands.

Sinking feeling: Ground in California
is sinking by a FOOT each year
as the deep-water layer is
siphoned up for farmers
Daily Mail [UK], by Associated Press & Alex Greig    Original Article
Posted By: Attercliffe- 7/27/2014 10:19:46 PM     Post Reply
A third year of drought in California has meant farmers have become increasingly dependent on ground water for their crops - and now the land is sinking beneath their feet. A USGS study found that land sinking had been measured at nearly one-foot per year in one area in the San Joaqin Valley, and that it is reducing the flow capacity of the Delta-Mendota Canal and the California Aqueduct, two key sources of water. Increased pumping of groundwater is damaging vital water infrastructure, the U.S. Geological Survey says. ´We were surprised at the amount of land being affected,´ Michelle Sneed, a

The most alarming unanswered question over the shooting-down of Malaysia Airlines flight MH17 is so fearful to contemplate that it has scarcely even been asked. [Snip] When, in his statement 24 hours after the plane was downed, the President stoked speculation about the involvement of President Putin, did he deliberately obscure the fact that, days earlier, he had already learnt enough from his many intelligence sources to know that the 55 international airliners travelling every day along that flight path over eastern Ukraine faced the threat of precisely such a disaster? If so, why did the US authorities not make

´John Kerry is an alien, an ongoing
embarrassment´: what Israel
thinks of US secretary of state
Telegraph [UK], by Robert Tait    Original Article

John Kerry has almost certainly been called worse things than a space alien--particularly by Israel´s Right-wing camp, where contempt for the US secretary of state and his failed peacemaking efforts is unabashed. But when the insult is levelled by the previously supportive Haaretz newspaper, standard-bearer of the country´s liberal-Left, it may be time for him--and by extension, President Barack Obama--to take notice. The withering description was coined by Barack Ravid, the paper´s well-informed and normally restrained diplomatic editor, to describe Mr Kerry´s attempts at brokering a truce to the bloody conflict in Gaza--rejected by Israel amid widespread mockery.

A second American citizen has now become infected with the deadly Ebola virus as the worst outbreak ever of the terrifying and grisly disease rages through four West African nations. Nancy Writebol, an American working for a charity organization in Liberia has tested positive for the virus officials announced Sunday. While her condition was not released. Writebol is undoubtedly fighting for her life against the virus, which kills 90 percent of those infected. So too is American doctor Kent Brantly, the 33-year-old medical director for charity group Samaritan´s Purse whose been working in Liberia since October. Writebol had been working with Ebola victims

US Weapons Resupply -

In the coming days, Israel will likely need a massive re-supply of military goods of all kinds. It is then when Obama’s real intentions will be exposed for Israel to see. President Obama is the master of Double-Speak, saying one thing and meaning the exact opposite. Remember how Obama promised, “You can keep your doctor if you like him,” and how it turns out that you can’t keep him because Obamacare won’t pay him? Given Obama’s track record of betrayal of Israel, his hollow recital of “Israel has the right to defend herself,” might actually have a doublespeak meaning as well - that "Israel has the right to defend herself", but without any

Islamic Jihad Said to Have

Sources said that Islamic Jihad´s big ´surprise´ was a long-range, explosive-laden Iranian-made rocket. Islamic Jihad has “many more surprises up its sleeve,” said Abdullah Shalah, head of the terror group said Sunday. In an interview on an Arab satellite station, Shalah said that “We have a store of strategic weapons that we have never used,” but was prepared to bring out against Israel if the war in Gaza continued. [Snip] According to sources in Gaza, those weapons are Iranian-made “Zelzal” missiles, an unguided missile that can carry a payload of up to 600 kg (1,323 pounds) of explosives for a

Despite so many of Britain’s streets being packed with history, it can be hard to imagine what was happening on them 100 years ago. But these composite images show how places across London and further afield looked during the First World War compared to now. In one photo, German prisoners of war are seen being marched on their way to Southend Pier in Essex accompanied by guards in 1914. This archive image from the war has been matched with a present-day photo of the seafront in the sunshine, taken earlier this month. Further up the east coast, wartime bomb damage

The Duke of Westminster is used to developing properties. As one of Britain’s wealthiest men, he owns swathes of central London through his company, Grosvenor Estates, as well as hotels, office blocks and flats across the country. But it is his plans for a new development in the Midlands that he considers will be his life’s achievement: the new £300million Defence National Rehabilitation Centre (DNRC) at Stanford Hall, near Loughborough. [Snip] In his first interview since the plans were given the green light this month, the Duke is forthright about why he wants to build the new centre in the

A judge has ordered officials in Washington DC to allow citizens to carry handguns in public after saying a previous ban on “open carry” weapons is unconstitutional. “There is no longer any basis on which this court can conclude that the District of Columbia’s total ban on the public carrying of ready-to-use handguns outside the home is constitutional under any level of scrutiny,” said Judge Frederick J. Scullin Jr of the District of Columbia District Court. “Therefore, the court finds that the District of Columbia’s complete ban on the carrying of handguns in public is unconstitutional,” he added in his 19-page

Illegal immigrants crossing the river that divides Texas and Mexico would once have tried to disappear into the thick vegetation on the US side to avoid arrest. But in a striking twist to the migrant crisis that is overwhelming the US border authorities, tens of thousands of Central Americans streaming across the border are surrendering to US border officers as soon as they can. Human smuggling gangs are spreading the word that unaccompanied minors and mothers with children escaping the gang violence and poverty of Honduras, El Salvador and Guatemala will no longer be deported.

Tony Blair--the Middle East Peace Envoy--threw a lavish birthday party for his wife on Friday night at their country bolthole in Buckinghamshire, while the grim death toll from the Gaza conflict passed the 1,050 mark. Mr Blair, whose role is to hammer out a ceasefire in times of conflict between the Israelis and Palestinians, spent most of last week in the UK before hosting the couple’s friends at the party, estimated to have cost about £50,000. He held the surprise 60th birthday party for Cherie at their £6million country mansion South Pavilions, formerly the home of Sir John Gielgud, inviting

The ferocity of Friday’s unanimous rejection by the Israeli government of Secretary of State John Kerry’s cease was kept quiet to prevent a formal rupture of relations between the two erstwhile allies, reports Israel’s Channel 2 Television. The popular and widely-watched Saturday evening newscast quotes several unnamed high officials in the Israeli government who claimed that Kerry’s cease fire proposal represented a “complete cave-in” to Hamas’s demands for an end to fighting in its war against Israel. The official, and others cited in The Times of Israel, claimed that Israel was “stunned” and “absolutely horrified” that Kerry’s ceasefire proposal, which contained

President Obama appears poised to take executive action that would legalize as many as 5 million illegal immigrant parents of U.S.-born children, a prospect that riles local immigration critics and adds a new dimension to concern about swelling immigrant populations in states like Massachusetts eyed as hosting sites for thousands of children who crossed the border unaccompanied. The Associated Press reported yesterday White House officials are laying the groundwork for an executive order that would automatically legalize roughly 5 million of an estimated 11 million people who have entered the country without legal authorization or overstayed their visas.

When The Times of Israel’s Avi Issacharoff first reported the content of John Kerry’s ceasefire proposal on Friday afternoon, I wondered if something had gotten lost in translation. It seemed inconceivable that the American secretary of state would have drafted an initiative that, as a priority, did not require the dismantling of Hamas’s rocket arsenal and network of tunnels dug under the Israeli border. Yet the reported text did not address these issues at all, nor call for the demilitarization of Gaza. It seemed inconceivable that the secretary’s initiative would specify the need to address Hamas’s demands for a lifting of

The IDF has not yet located and destroyed all of Hamas´ terror tunnels, but the consensus about the intent behind them is quite clear. This is Jonathan Dahoah HeLevi of the Jerusalem Center for Public Affairs. Ismail Haniyeh, the Hamas prime minister, delivered a revealing speech on March 23, 2014, in which he stressed the strategic importance of the Hamas attack tunnels, which, he argued, have changed the balance of power with Israel, when taken together with his organization’s military build-up. In the meantime, the IDF’s war against the tunnels continues. On Monday IDF forces thwarted another terror attack after two groups of Hamas

Even as President Obama grapples with the crisis of immigrant children arriving at the Southwest border, White House officials are laying the groundwork for a large-scale expansion of immigrant rights that would come by executive action within weeks. Officials signaled strongly Friday that Obama´s move would shield from deportation large numbers of immigrants living in the country illegally, as advocacy groups have demanded. Roughly 5 million of the estimated 11 million people who entered the country without legal authorization or overstayed their visas could be protected under a leading option the White House is considering, according to officials who discussed

Rep. Steve King (R-IA) believes the House of Representatives will immediately begin impeachment proceedings if President Barack Obama unilaterally grants work permits and amnesty to millions more illegal immigrants by the "end of summer." Appearing on Breitbart News Saturday with co-hosts Breitbart News Executive Chairman Stephen K. Bannon and Editor-in-Chief Alex Marlow from the U.S.-Mexico border in Texas, King said that if Obama "completely destroys the rule of law with the stroke of a pen" and "Congress fails to act," there will be "enough Republicans who didn´t have a desire to do this" that will be "immediately activated" to consider impeachment.

Police detained two men at a Midtown hotel late Friday after a doorman reported they possessed a pair of pressure cookers like those used to make the Boston Marathon bombs. But the men say it was a misunderstanding: They plan to use the pressure cookers to prepare rice, chicken and meat. Mohammad Alotaibi, 21, and Ayoub Alawadhi, 20, pulled up to the InterContinental Hotel on East 48th Street late Friday with the pressure cookers in their car’s trunk, said law enforcement sources. A doorman called Crimestoppers, and NYPD counterterrorism and intelligence officers arrived to question the men. Police did not

Sunday on CNN´s "Fareed Zakaria GPS," former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton discussed the United States standing in the world and said former President George W. Bush is the president who made her "proud to be an American." Clinton then seemingly took a shot at Obama´s current lack of direction in world leadership. "We have to go back out and sell ourselves," Clinton said. "It is not to be taken for granted. What do we stand for and, how do we intend to lead and manage? How do we try to enlist the rest of the world in this struggle between cooperation and order and conflict and disorder which is really at the root of so much

Former presidential nominee Mitt Romney would win the popular vote if a rematch of the 2012 election against President Obama were held today, a CNN/ORC poll has revealed. According to the poll, if the 2012 election were held again today, Romney would receive 53% of the popular vote, and Mr. Obama would receive 44%, CNN reported. Obama beat Romney 51%-47% in the actual election. The poll said, however, that the former Massachusetts governor would lose against Hillary Clinton by double digits in a hypothetical election. Mrs. Clinton would earn 55% of the vote, with Mr. Romney at 42%.

VILLA PARK, Ill. — Fast food workers from across the country have voted in suburban Chicago to escalate their campaign for higher wages and union representation by including civil disobedience. More than 1,300 workers gathered today in Villa Park, Illinois. Some workers say they’re prepared to engage in sit-down strikes and organize more workers in their campaign to win $15-an-hour wages and a union. Their actions so far have included one-day strikes and a protest outside this year’s McDonald’s Corp. shareholder meeting. Industry officials say a $15 wage would hurt job creation, and that the solution is more education and

World leaders are increasingly pointing to U.S. President Obama’s failures in the Middle East. Some are direct and blunt. For example, during his recent visit to Brazil, Russian President Vladimir Putin was asked by journalists about U.S. sanctions against Russia due to the Ukrainian crisis. While naturally condemning such moves, part of his response was to accuse the Obama administration of “encouraging war between neighboring states.” In the same context, Putin added: American objectives have not been realized, nor have they accomplished anything, because everything has collapsed. Afghanistan faces problems, and Iraq and Libya are falling apart. Egypt also was
