When false democracy push US down the drain
Brazil Completes Successful Rocket Launch.

The two-stage rocket, named VSB-30, or Brazilian Exploration Vehicle, was launched from the Alcantara launch site in Maranhao.
The successful launch would allow it to follow through on plans to export the rockets to the European Space Agency where it would reportedly replace the equivalent British-made Skylark rocket. :) http://story.news.ya...l_rocket_launch

Brazil's state-run petroleum company PETROBRAS announced that crude oil had been discovered in Potiguar Basin, in the country's Rio Grando do Norteprovince, in a joint exploitation with Portugal's oil company Partex.
The new discovery occurred five days after the announcement of another one in Esplanada, Brazil's Bahia province. :)
By now, petroleum reserves in Brazil have reached 13 billion barrels, including 400 million barrels discovered this year. http://news.xinhuane...nt_2053355.htm:)

depleted uranium = depleted army

Who needs terrorism when Uncle Sam poisens his own young men and women.

Funny how the Italians have no trouble indentifying DU as the cause. Thirteen years on the US still think its not happening.

The best protection for Italian troops is the the same the Spanish used- get out while you can.

DU is the only weapon of mass destruction in Iraq. Hey we've found it, we can all go home now.

Here's all about DU...;)

Depleted Uranium:
Wonder Weapon or Toxic Hazard?

1.Why did the US military develop shells armed with depleted uranium (DU) and did they fully investigate potential health hazards from these weapons?

The Army began arming tank, artillery and machine gun shells with depleted uranium in the 1980s. DU is a chemically toxic "heavy metal" that emits low levels of alpha radiation. Its extreme density and pyrophoric nature enables it to punch and burn its way through conventional armor. Researchers also discovered that armored plating constructed with depleted uranium provided increased protection from conventional (non DU) shells. The term "depleted" is a misnomer since DU contains about 60% of the radioactivity found in natural uranium.

When a DU shell strikes its target, up to 70% of the depleted uranium vaporizes into fine dust, which then settles out in the surrounding soil and water. Over half of the aerosolized particles are smaller than 5 microns and anything smaller than 10 microns can be inhaled. Once lodged in the lungs, these particles can emit a steady dose of alpha radiation.
An additional hazard is DU's chemical toxicity. An Armed Forces Radiobiology Research Institute study of rats after the Gulf War found that DU exposure damaged their immune and central nervous systems and may have contributed to some of the cancers they developed.
While the Army intensively studied DU's value as a weapon, less effort was made to learn about its possible hazard to health. In fact, the Army's Environmental Policy Institute criticized the command in a 1995 report for its failure to "closely coordinate the planning and performance of experiments for DU health and environmental assessments."

(snip)

3.Why does the Pentagon seem reluctant to support research into possible health hazards from DU weapons?

From a military point of view, these weapons provided the US and its allies with a distinct advantage over their opponents. Hundreds of Iraqi tanks were destroyed without a single loss of an American armored vehicles, except to "friendly fire." More recently, in Bosnia and then Serbia, DU shells again proved to be devastating weapons both against enemy armor and "hardened" bunkers and troop emplacements.

At the same time, the Army is clearly aware that environmental concerns could eventually undermine support for these dangerous weapons. Not long after the Gulf War ended, an Army colonel stationed at the Los Alamos National Labs wrote to a subordinate: "There continues to be concern regarding the impact of DU on the environment. If no one makes the case for the effectiveness of DU in battle, DU rounds may become politically unacceptable and be deleted from the arsenal." His memo ends with the following: "I believe that we should keep this sensitive issue in mind when "after action" reports are written."

In the first years after the Gulf War, thousands of vets began to experience some chronic health problems and many of them sought evaluation and treatment at either VA medical centers or military hospitals. They reported some or all of the following symptoms: neurological problems, chronic skin rashes, respiratory problems, chronic flu-like symptoms including severe body aches, immune system disorders, severe fatigue, joint pain, gynecological infection, bleeding gums and lesions, and unexplained rapid weight loss.

Eventually, about 186,000 Gulf vets were examined medically at a VA or military medical facility. Virtually all who reported health problems were eventually told that they suffered from "undiagnosed illness." Very few have received disability payments for service-connected illness. Despite the large number of sick veterans, the Army Surgeon General continued to tell Congress and other investigators that only a tiny number of these cases (where vets had been struck with DU shrapnel) could be attributed to depleted uranium exposure.

Finally, in January 1998, the Pentagon's Office of the Special Assistant for Gulf War Illnesses published the following statement: "Combat troops or those working in support generally did not know that DU contaminated equipment, such as enemy vehicles struck by DU rounds, required special handling. The failure to properly disseminate such information to troops at all levels may have resulted in thousands of unnecessary exposures."
Despite this belated recognition of a serious health risk, the military has still not agreed to fund an epidemiological study that would compare the health of vets exposed to DU with those who weren't exposed.

and a never-ending war on terrorism.
Self-hate should be included in the Hate Crimes.

"Hundreds of Iraqi tanks were destroyed without a lost of one armoured vehicle", but the number of US men who served there in the first invasion and are now disabled number at about a quarter of a million. Yep some big saving alright.

Govt, parliamant and democracy:

It should take a majority for Govt to pass bills etc. If the Govt party or coalition cant get a majority on any important issue then
an election should be called.
Every democracy so-called uses party politics which means the party not the electorates are represented, therefore the public have no voice that are not active in the partry holding the seat.
People just complain that politicians never listen, no one is prepared to take any action about anything. To be expected
(in NZ) given there is nothing in the education system to make people politically/constitutionally aware and responsible. NO party would ever move in this direction anyway.

I would vote no on Kyoto. Just more global govt because they wont deal to the cause of problems.

Where is the connection?
Chechnya borders Georgia, and Georgia, like Azerbaidjan, is on the fast track to join NATO.
There are already hundreds of US troops in Georgia, training the local forces. They are there for two reasons: first, to protect the US-built Baku-Tbilisi-Ceyhan pipeline; secondly

THe rise in price of oil is not by chance and the benefit to Russia
which is great is not intended either. There is no shortage of producing petrolium its the reduction in refining which is being kept in the dark which causes the price to rise.
IT is a sure way to get nations anti-Russia, beingblamed for the hike in petrol prices, like the Sept 11 holywood show got everyone anti-muslim. The control of the media is a instrument for war today.
The anti-Putin slant that Russia is drifting back into its old dark
authoritarian ways started before this, its started over a year ago.
And when Blair visited Putin May last year to talk him into going with them over Iraqi oil he threatened Putin if he didnt.
Beslan is the reply to unheeded threat.
Russia is preparing for this war against it.
Its not the price of oil that is the problem to these guys its that they dont have their hands on Russian oil to be able to gather the fortune. When they get control they will screw every nation anyway, to put everyone on the road to "Palestine".

Al Qaeda gave the Japanese government 48 hours to withdraw its troops from Iraq, "or this infidel will meet the same fate as Berg ..., who was beheaded .

"They want the Japanese government and Prime Minister Koizumi to withdraw Japanese troops from Iraq or they will cut my head (off)," "I am sorry. I want to go back again to Japan,"

The troop dispatch has divided the Japanese public and critics say it violates Japan's pacifist constitution.

President Bush, who often cites Koizumi on the campaign trail as an example of a staunch ally.

The poll also showed that Koizumi's support rate had dipped to 38 percent from 45 percent in September.

Koizumi will be soon gone from his office.
Japanese troops will be gone from Iraq;
and what is most thankful ; the American soldiers will be gone from Okinawa .
Pope will not help, he will be soon in his shameful, miserable , Judaic Bible heaven. :)

His presidency was the first to put the U.S. on the world stage. Roosevelt warned Europe against intervening in South American affairs and built the Panama Canal. He brokered the end of the Russo-Japanese War, earning a Nobel Peace Prize. He sent 16 battleships, the ``Great White Fleet,'' on a cruise around the world, a frank demonstration of U.S. naval power.

Roosevelt was also a book writer. The Rough Riders,'' his narrative might better be titled, ``Alone in Cuba.''

The army carried the Spanish position on the heights, and besieged the city of Santiago below. The war was as good as over.

The war's dashing moments were overshadowed by logistical failure. ``The Rough Riders'' is an angry book, packed with fulminations against government incompetence and intransigence. Yet it is nostalgic, as well, Roosevelt concluding, ``Is it any wonder that I loved my regiment?''

The ``Autobiography'' fares less well in the eyes of historians and critics.,the incredible range of his interests and enthusiasms, from bird watching to bear hunting, from politics to patriotism.

Roosevelt seems to have drafted most of his correspondence with an eye to posterity. His letters offer a glimpse of another era very different from our own. Reading them is not an exercise for the faint of heart or the politically correct. This being said, almost every page sparkles.

``Oversentimentality, oversoftness, in fact, washiness and mushiness are the great danger of this age and of this people,'' he wrote to one correspondent.

``Unless we keep the barbarian virtues, gaining the civilized ones will be of little avail.''

You are not wrong Woj:

Reminds me of the book "Clash of the Barbarians" which really boils down to the same dynamics as dialectic materialism, akin to the phoenyx rising out of the ashes.
Yes, makes Bush's crimes against humanity virtuous.

Japan: perhaps the price of becoming a member of the prestigious Security Council, is prostituting their troops to Iraq.

Putin WILL NOT RUN FOR A THIRD TERM in Russia.

Liberal Democratic Party of Russia leader Vladimir Zhirinovskii told that after the presidential election in Ukraine, the Kremlin should propose a constitutional amendment on a third presidential term. "I would personally welcome such a development as it would bring stability,". VYhttp://www.rferl.org/newsline/1-rus.asp

I suggest that Putin after ending his second term in Russia should run in the presidential election in Ukraine.
It would be the best solution for Russia and Ukraine and very welcome for the both countries.

Biased ?
Arabs wonder whether anyone could be worse than a U.S. president who occupied Iraq, aligned himself with Israeli Prime Minister Ariel Sharon and turned his back on the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.

In fact many of them say that Kerry's few remarks on the Middle East are disappointing indicators that he would continue many of the pro-Israeli attitudes. He favors the U.S. boycott of Palestinian President Yasser Arafat, supports the barrier Israel is building in the West Bank and says that "Israel's cause must be America's cause."
Neutral analysts said they doubted Bush had the will to shake himself free of the hard core of foreign policy advisers closely associated with the views of Sharon's Likud party.

"The great majority, even more than 70 percent, don't think that Bush or Kerry make a difference because both are evil, because the United States is evil," :)
