If you're referencing "Emperor's Clothes" and repeating discredited Serbian propaganda (Balkan ties to London and Madrid), you're removing yourself from serious consideration.
You should get a return of about 741,000 results.
The July 29 2005 edition of FOX News Channel's Day Side program revealed that the so called mastermind of the 7/7 London Bombings, Haroon Rashid Aswat, is a British Intelligence Asset. Former Justice Dept. prosecutor and Terror expert John Loftus revealed that the so called Al-Muhajiroun group, based in London had formed during the Kosovo crisis, during which Fundamentalist Muslim Leaders (Or what is now referred to as Al Qaeda) were recruited by MI6 to fight in Kosovo.
"...back in the late 1990s, the leaders all worked for British intelligence in Kosovo. Believe it or not, British intelligence actually hired some Al-Qaeda guys to help defend the Muslim rights in Albania and in Kosovo. That's when Al-Muhajiroun got started."
Haroon Rashid Aswat
From Wikipedia encyclopedia
Haroon Rashid Aswat (born ca. 1975 in Britain) is a British citizen of Indian origin suspected of being an MI6 operative and Al Qaeda organizer responsible for the 7 July 2005 London bombings.
Police sources have told newspapers that Aswat made some 20 mobile phone calls to two of the suspected bombers, possibly including Mohammed Sidique Khan. Although his family claims that years ago he disappeared to Afghanistan or Pakistan, he was monitored entering Britain at Felixstowe, Suffolk in late June and then departing via Heathrow hours before the attacks. His profile was mentioned early in the investigation as a potential suspect, but his name was kept secret until he was arrested by Zambian authorities after entering that country through Zimbabwe.
Aswat is believed to have helped set up a terrorist training camp in Oregon in the United States in 1999. Recently, he was in South Africa, where American agents reportedly monitored his activities. It has been alleged that the US wished to arrest him, but the UK opposed the arrest, apparently due to his British citizenship. However, terrorism expert John Loftus, interviewed on FOX News's Day Side on 30 July 2005, said that Rashid was in fact an MI6 informant and had been for many years. He was deported from Zambia to the UK on 7 August 2005 and arrested on his arrival.
For a time he was believed killed in Afghanistan, as his identification papers were found on the body of a Taliban fighter.
Haroon Aswat the man British Police believe was behind the London bombings was working for MI6, it has been confirmed by leading U.S. and French intelligence asset/agents.
The Los Angeles Times reports that a British judge has approved Aswat's extradition to the USA
How does that work?
Further, is John Loftus an official spokesman for either the US or British Governments now?
Aswat is presently in custody in the UK, fighting extradition to the US to face terrorism charges relating to Afghanistan.
So either running a terrorist training camp in Oregon takes precedent over masterminding the 7/7 bombings, or something is likely wrong with the scenario Loftus sets out.
I know that's only 2 web references vs. your 741,000 and that they lack the authority on the subject that Wikipedia has, but oh well.
"ISRAEL will support deployment of a temporary international peacekeeping force in southern Lebanon to ensure Hezbollah is removed from its border.
Defence Minister Amir Peretz suggested yesterday that the force would be led by NATO, but gave no time frame for any deployment.
"Because of the weakness of the Lebanese army, we will support a wide national force which would deploy in the south," Haaretz newspaper's website quoted Mr Peretz as telling German Foreign Minister Frank-Walter Steinmeier."
Most of the NATO members have not shown strong support for Israel with the exception of the USA and some have shown hostilities. With that said it is also being reported;
"President Bush's chief of staff said Sunday international peacekeepers might be needed in Lebanon to help end the fighting between Israel and Hezbollah militants, but that U.S. troop involvement was unlikely.
Josh Bolten reaffirmed comments by Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice on Friday, ahead of her trip to the Middle East this week, that she did not think "it anticipated that U.S. ground forces are expected" for a potential peacekeeping contingent."
In the scenario I laid out I said the time was not ripe for it to take place now because of US support for Israel but that it could develop over time. I stand by that. If NATO goes into the region temporarily who knows when they will come out? With nations there whose sympathies are not with Israel and with the absence of US forces who knows what will develop over the next years.
Putting NATO into Southern Lebanon to stop Hizbollah attacks on Israel isn't quite the same thing as putting NATO into Kosovo to stop Serbian attacks on Albanians, is it.
Don't bother being rational with Hoplite...he is a bought and paid for KLA terror fan.
Serbian attacks on Albanians
If you could follow your own advice and quit pinging me to your worthless posts, it would be appreciated.
I don't know why it is, but some people love punishment and keep on returning for more.
Identifying "some people" and the "punishment" to which you refer would be helpful.
Oh poppycock. You need to get a dose of reality once in a while.
We bombed the wrong side and more people realize it every single day.
Tell that to someone who is presently a liberal and see if they agree, most of them are still on the wrong side.
Hoplite is immune to education when it comes to supporting the Serbs against the Jihadists.
ten years???? it seems like it is staring already.
Hey, I never gave a timetable! ;-)
The comparison should be the air war on Serbia. It went on for months and killed thousands of civilians and destroyed the infrastructure. But we didn't hear a peep about an uneven response.
