Obama amputates our nuclear arms

By: Charles Krauthammer

...snippet...

Under President Obama’s new policy, however, if the state that has just attacked us with biological or chemical weapons is “in compliance with the Non-Proliferation Treaty,” explained Gates, then “the U.S. pledges not to use or threaten to use nuclear weapons against it.”

Imagine the scenario: Hundreds of thousands are lying dead in the streets of Boston after a massive anthrax or nerve gas attack. The president immediately calls in the lawyers to determine whether the attacking state is in compliance with the NPT. If it turns out that the attacker is up-to-date with its latest IAEA inspections, well, it gets immunity from nuclear retaliation. (Our response is then restricted to bullets, bombs and other conventional munitions.)

However, if the lawyers tell the president that the attacking state is NPT noncompliant, we are free to blow the bastards to nuclear kingdom come.

This is quite insane. It’s like saying that if a terrorist deliberately uses his car to mow down a hundred people waiting at a bus stop, the decision as to whether he gets hanged or 100 hours of community service hinges entirely on whether his car had passed emissions inspections.

Apart from being morally bizarre, the Obama policy is strategically loopy. Does anyone believe that North Korea or Iran will be more persuaded to abjure nuclear weapons because they could then carry out a biological or chemical attack on the United States without fear of nuclear retaliation?

The naivete is stunning.

(U.S.) Alaska couple to plead guilty to terrorism charges
— AP: “Paul Rockwood Jr. and his wife, Nadia Rockwood, of King Salmon, Alaska, are charged with lying about the list and making false statements about domestic terrorism during interviews with FBI agents in May.”
— “Officials said that in late 2009, he began discussing using mail bombs and possibly killing targets by gunshot to the head. By early this year, the hit list had been formalized, with about 15 targets. It was not made public.”
— “Prosecutors alleged that Paul Rockwood, also known as “Bilal,” converted to Islam about a decade ago and began studying the teachings of American-born cleric Anwar al-Awlaki, who has professed hatred for the United States and supports acts of terrorism. According to the charging documents, Paul Rockwood converted to Islam in late 2001 or 2002 when the couple lived in Virginia.”
— “’After his conversion, and while residing in Virginia, Rockwood became a strict adherent to the violent Jihad-promoting ideology of cleric Anwar al-Awlaki,’ the documents said. ‘This included a personal conviction that it was his religious responsibility to exact revenge by death on anyone who desecrated Islam.’”

— Mission Free Iran reports: “ICAE Press Release #19: Sakineh Mohammadi Ashtiani’s case review postponed; final judgment will be made in 20 days”
— “In our last press release we reported that the Supreme Court in Iran would issue a statement on Sakineh Mohammadi Ashtiani’s case on July 21st, 2010. Today we have been informed by our sources in Iran that the Islamic regime has postponed a decision in Sakineh Mohammadi Ashtiani’s case for another 20 days. According to the sources, all documents of Sakineh’s case have been sent to the 9th division of the Supreme Court.”
— “We believe that Sakineh is still at risk of being executed or even stoned to death. The aim of the Islamic regime of Iran is clear: by pushing back the date of the final verdict they hope to buy time to escape the pressure of the international community. The Islamic regime is waiting for the international news coverage and the pressure to abate to then continue with their criminal activities.”

Gunman makes terror threat, robs downtown office (Chicago)

A gunman threatened to detonate a car bomb and claimed links to al-Qaida while robbing an American Express office on the Magnificent Mile this afternoon, police said.

About 4:20 p.m., a man approached a female employee in the American Express travel service office at 605 N. Michigan Ave. at first trying to buy euros and showing her a gun in his waistband as he demanded money, said Near North District Captain Leo Crotty.

The man told the woman that he was a member of al-Qaida, pointed to a vehicle across the street and claimed there was a bomb in the car and that he could detonate it with his cell phone, Crotty said.

The man, described as 6 feet tall, 200 pounds and possibly of Middle Eastern descent...

From CRA newsletter:

A friend who is a receptionist in a church in a high risk area was concerned about someone coming into the office on Monday to rob them when they were counting the collection. She asked the local police department about using pepper spray and they recommended to her that she get a can of wasp spray instead.

The wasp spray, they told her, can shoot up to twenty feet away and is a lot more accurate, while with the pepper spray, they have to get too close to you and could overpower you. The wasp spray temporarily blinds an attacker until they get to the hospital for an antidote. She keeps a can on her desk in the office and it doesn’t attract attention from people like a can of pepper spray would. She also keeps one nearby at home for home protection... Thought this was interesting and might be of use.

The well dressed bank robber of today, wears a green shirt, a green bandana to cover his face.

His gun is black and matches his hoodie.

His mode of transportation is a Skateboard.

Vindicated for Removing Saddam

Posted by Ryan Mauro on Jul 22nd, 2010

snip.

The Duelfer Report, the final assessment of the Iraq Survey Group, states that a former Iraqi intelligence officer testified that the M16 Directorate “had a plan to produce and weaponize nitrogen mustard in rifle grenades and a plan to bottle sarin and sulfur mustard in perfume sprayer and medicine bottles which they would ship to the United States and Europe.” The plot was not launched because of an inability to get the ingredients for the weapons. This substantiates intelligence received in 1998 that prompted the British government to put its airports and seaports on alert because Iraqis were planning to smuggle anthrax into several countries including the United Kingdom inside bottles used for cosmetics, cigarette lighters, perfume sprays, and other apparently harmless items.

The Iraq Survey Group also found that the M14 Directorate was giving terrorist training to Iraqis, Palestinians, Syrians, Yemenis, Lebanese, Egyptians, Sudanese and other nationals at Salman Pak. The site that had an airliner and other Iraqi defectors reported that it was being used to provide training in tactics including hijacking. According to reporter Stephen Hayes, other documents show that Iraq trained 2,000 terrorists each year since 1999 at three camps. The ISG also said that it received testimony that Iraq had tried to recruit a former member of Hamas to kill Israeli Prime Minister Ariel Sharon at the Western Wall in Jerusalem using an unmanned aerial vehicle loaded with C4 explosives. Detainees later admitted that an undeclared site existed where such vehicles had been produced that ran test flights beyond the range allowed by the United Nations.

IIS Undeclared Research on Poisons and Toxins for Assassination
Iraq’s Chemical Warfare Program - Annex A

The Iraqi Intelligence Service (IIS) M16 Directorate—Iraq’s Undeclared Poisons and Toxins Research

The IIS M16 directorate utilized a set of covert laboratories to produce, research, and test various chemical compounds, including the BW agent ricin. While there is no definitive evidence that M16 scientists produced CW agents in these labs, the M16 directorate may have been planning to produce several agents including sulfur mustard, nitrogen mustard, and Sarin.

the ayatollah title has already been awarded to VP Biden by the Persian community for his solid support of them over the past 30-years, including blocking any laws that wre against the isalmic regime in Iran. He has strong ties to Islamic Iran agents and shills inside the USA.

Obama’s nomenclature is Oba-Hussein-Khomeini. It should be Oba-Hussein-Abdullah-Khomeini as evidence points to Abdullah having been part of his FULL name of BArak Hussein Abdullah Obama.

Fantasies of Nuclear War

Posted By Humberto Fontova On July 26, 2010 @ 12:03 am In FrontPage | 5

http://frontpagemag.com/2010/07/26/fantasies-of-nuclear-war/print/#comments_controls

Fidel Castro, the dictator who came the closest in history to igniting a
nuclear war, made several public appearances recently to predict an imminent
nuclear conflict. The cataclysm he craved in 1962 will erupt, he warned on
Cuban TV, when the Israelis and their American cohorts provoke Iran in the
straits of Hormuz.

You did indeed read the above account correctly. Castro, the man who
co-sponsored the famous 1975 UN resolution equating Zionism
http://babalublog.com/2010/06/memo-to-israeli-foreign-ministry-castros-idea
ls-regarding-israel-have-been-pretty-consistent-over-the-years/
with
racism [1], is claiming the Israeli tail wags the Yankee dog. Those Yankees
are certainly powerful, Castro explained, but also a bit naïve and docile.
The main instigators, the ones carefully setting the trap to ignite nuclear
war, are those crafty Israelis. ”The control that Israel has over the United
States is enormous,” he recently lamented
http://www.guardian.co.uk/world/2010/jul/13/fidel-castro-on-cuban-tv-middle
-east-iran-us
[2].

Fidel Castro has excellent reason to bask in the fond memory of impending
nuclear war. Waxing sentimental on his own role in the infamous Caban
Missile Crisis, Castro revealed to former Secretary of Defense Robert
McNamara in 1992: “Of course I knew the missiles were nuclear-armed. That’s
precisely why I urged Khrushchev to launch them. And of course Cuba would
have been utterly destroyed in the exchange.”

Castro was not alone in his longing for a nuclear conflagration. His fellow
Cuban revolutionaries, Che Guevara and bother Raul Castro, also expressed
the same desire for destruction:

“If the missiles had remained, we would have fired them against the very
heart of the U.S., including New York. The victory of socialism is well
worth millions of atomic victims.” (Che Guevara, November 1962.)

“My dream is to drop three atomic bombs on New York City.” (Raul Castro,
Nov. 1960.)

The Stalinist trio raged for years afterward: “[Soviet Premier] Nikita
Khrushchev, that sniveling maricon, snatched
http://www.americanheritage.com/articles/web/20051022-cuban-missile-crisis-
kennedy-khrushchev-cold-war-cuba-fidel-castro.shtml
[3] that magic
button-pushing moment from our eager fingers!”

On Oct. 28 1962, Khruschev received a telegram from Castro that read: “We
should deliver a nuclear first strike.”

Khrushchev’s son

http://www.americanheritage.com/articles/web/20051022-cuban-missile-crisis-
kennedy-khrushchev-cold-war-cuba-fidel-castro.shtml
Sergei [3] recalled
his father’s response: “Is he [Fidel Castro] proposing that we start a
nuclear war? That we launch missiles from Cuba?”

The Premier later instructed, “But that is insane…Remove [our missiles] as
soon as possible. Before it’s too late. Before something terrible happens.”

snipped.

France declares war against al-Qaida

By ELAINE GANLEY (AP) - 1 hour ago

PARIS - France has declared war on al-Qaida, and matched its fighting words
with a first attack on a base camp of the terror network’s North African
branch, after the terror network killed a French aid worker it took hostage
in April.

The declaration and attack marked a shift in strategy for France, usually
discrete about its behind-the-scenes battle against terrorism.

“We are at war with al-Qaida,” Prime Minister Francois Fillon said Tuesday,
a day after President Nicolas Sarkozy announced the death of 78-year-old
hostage Michel Germaneau.

The humanitarian worker had been abducted April 20 or 22 in Niger by
al-Qaida in the Islamic Maghreb, and was later taken to Mali, officials
said.

The killers will “not go unpunished,” Sarkozy said in unusually strong
language, given France’s habit of employing quiet cooperation with its
regional allies - Mauritania, Mali, Niger and Algeria - in which the
al-Qaida franchise was spawned amid an Islamist insurgency.

Blast hits Japanese oil tanker near Oman

Map

A Japanese oil tanker has been damaged by an explosion in the Strait of
Hormuz near Oman, causing a minor injury to one crew member.

Japanese officials say the blast might have been caused by an attack,
although piracy in the area is rare.

There are no reports of any oil leaking from the tanker, the M Star.

The Strait of Hormuz links the ports of oil-rich states such as Saudi Arabia
and Kuwait with export markets. It is operating normally, officials say.

Blast Rocks Japanese Tanker, Attack Suspected

Ship Damaged but No Oil Leak Near Mouth of Persian Gulf, U.S. Navy
Investigating Cause

(AP) An explosion, possibly caused by an attack, damaged an oil tanker
Wednesday near the mouth of the Persian Gulf, Japanese shipping company
Mitsui O.S.K. Lines said.

The company said the blast on its tanker M. Star caused one minor injury but
did not cause an oil leak.

The ship was damaged due to “an explosion from a suspected attack from the
outside” in the waters off Oman, near the strategically important Strait of
Hormuz, the company said.

Thanks, Ruth. I’ve been reading about this on another site. Some there are saying the tanker was hit by a freak wave caused by an earthquake. I checked the quake sheet and the last earthquake in Iran was four days ago, a little over a 4. magnitude.

Aen’t Iran and Japan trading partners? Wouldn’t make sense for them to strike a business ally. (IIRC, Japan sold them enriched uranium.)

Nothing on FOX News about it, but CNN had a little bit.

Excerpt from Zawahiri’s tape yesterday....

“At the battle of Uhud [in which the Muslims lost], Abu Sufyan [then a leader of the Meccan polytheists] stood up and said: ‘This battle evens out the battle of Badr’ [which the Muslims won]… The Prophet of Allah, Allah’s prayer and peace be upon him, replied: ‘This is not the same [for us and for you]. Our dead live on, and receive sustenance [from their Lord; cf. Quran 3:169], while your dead are being tormented in Hellfire.’

(snip)

Threats of Further Attacks in the U.S. and the West

“Oh American people, and peoples of the Crusader alliance: you are the ones who are paying the price, and it is a high price. Your leaders are collecting money from the war trade, and you are the fuel for these wars, and their victims. We offered you a peace plan, and mutual benefit; but your governments were proud and haughty, and so the attacks against you followed one after another, everywhere – from Indonesia to Times Square, by way of Madrid and London. And the attacks are ongoing, and more [mujahideen] will come one after another, by Allah’s grace…
***************************************

Vel’s comment cause this jumped out at me first:

“more will come one after another”

“one after another”

A 1 after another = 11
