Unite For Attack On Iran
Saudis are willing to assist an Israeli attack by cooperating with the
use of drones, rescue helicopters, and tanker planes. "Once the
Geneva agreement is signed, the military option will be back on the
table."

Attack or do nothing. Demonstrate a resolve to kill or show
cowardice. It's a wonder we haven't nuked Canada.

Zionist, Arab Despots 'Strategic Partners'
The Persian Gulf Arab monarchies have now clearly emerged as strategic
partners with the Israeli regime. Despite superficial differences, all
are lawless regimes that are guilty of crimes against humanity and crimes
against Arab and Muslims in particular.

Chomsky: Fight Back Against NSA Spying or be 'Complicit'
While U.S. officials have long cited national security as a rationale for
domestic surveillance programs, that same argument has been used by the
"most monstrous systems" in history, such as the Stasi secret
police in the former East Germany, Chomsky said.

Hedges: The Myth of Human Progress and the Collapse of Complex Societies
Video
 The myth of human progress, the unexamined belief in the
ability of our industrial and technological society to save us from
collapse, is a form of magical thinking. These forces, in fact, will
ensure that the descent will be swifter and more brutal.

What do y'all think?
A source with knowledge of the Elections Canada
probe said investigators are handicapped because they are being
blocked from gaining access to Conservative party
records.  As a result, he said there is only a small chance of
charges beyond those against Sona being laid.
