America and Israel must open the door to Hamas
By George Soros


The Bush administration is again committing a blunder in the Middle East by supporting the Israeli government in its refusal to recognise a Palestinian unity government that includes Hamas. This precludes any progress towards a peace settlement at a time when such progress could help avert conflagration in the greater Middle East.

The US and Israel seek to deal only with Mahmoud Abbas, Palestinian Authority president. They hope new elections would deny Hamas the majority it has in the Palestinian legislative council. This is a hopeless strategy, because Hamas would boycott early elections and, even if their outcome resulted in Hamas

For many in the West, the realization that ties with Russia are in trouble has dawned only recently. But the narrative of many Russians recalls nearly two decades of "unfair" treatment,

"The United States has overstepped its national borders in every way,". "Nobody feels secure anymore, because nobody can take safety behind the stone wall of international law."

Antimissile push worries Russia
Putin has threatened to target Russian missiles on Europe, for the first time since the cold war, if deployments go ahead.

Russians warn that they see no room for trust. "Americans may not understanense] issue is the last straw for us,"
. "They need to evaluate the past two decades, and maybe they'll see why we are so upset these days."

Aggressive neo-Soviet agenda?

, Moscow ultimately accepted the expansion of NATO to ex-Soviet allies in Eastern Europe and even cooperated with US-led efforts to impose order in the former Yugoslavia.

"Russia didn't seem to present any problems to the West because its weakness made it compliant,"
. "So, they decided we didn't matter and got used to doing things without considering our needs or wishes."

He adds that it's particularly galling today to hear Americans suggest that issues like European missile defense are none of Russia's business.

"We all know how Americans would react if Russia were to place strategic components in Cuba," Russia may have grudgingly assented to the enlargement of NATO, which took in virtually all the USSR's former Eastern European allies and the three ex-Soviet Baltic states between 1998 and 2004, but has never fully accepted it, "In the early '90s, Russia would have gladly join a new security system in Europe, but we were rejected, and NATO was expanded instead," an influential Moscow think tank. "NATO was created to oppose the Soviet Union, and its main effect is still to isolate Russia."

For Russians, the '90s were a disastrous decade in which the economy imploded, crime flourished, and the shady privatization of state assets led to the rise of super-rich, politically connected oligarchs who did little to improve conditions for the majority.

. "Whatever aid they provided was a pittance," which wound up in the wrong hands, 'solutions' offered by the West are mainly wrong,"

Russian experts say the Bush administration should drop its previous complacency and realize that a serious breakdown in relations with Moscow is looming, and that forums like the face-to-face meeting in Kennebunkport may be the last chance to head it off.

The US isnt building peace its building a new global order that Russia is to be made compliant to. From Putin's media conference which was largely kept away from the public in the West they are trying to get in aposition to black-mail Russia or face diaconsequenses and Putin warning of a pre-emptive strike if justified as I read it. Once the systems are in place a pre-emptive strike is eliminated, so to say they will target European targets has to mean more than a computer setting.

Russians test ballistic missile

Russia has successfully tested a new, sea-based ballistic missile from a nuclear submarine, officials have said.
The weapon, capable of breaching anti-missile defence systems, flew almost the whole length of the country.

US plans to build a missile defence shield in Europe have angered Russia, which sees the proposal as a challenge to its influence in the region.


The Bulava missile was launched from the White Sea off Russia's north-west coast.

The intercontinental missile hit its target on the Pacific Ocean peninsula of Kamchatka.

The Bulava is designed to have a range of 10,000km (6,200 miles) and carry six individually targeted nuclear warheads.

That wold mean it couldnt be watched by anyone especially if fired at night.
I think that range would mean any US base in the Indian Ocean, Middle East and Central Asia would be within range of the White sea as a safe place to fire them from. Be interesting to know what forms of interference were used against it along its route it to see how good its protective technology is.

Biofuel demand could drive up food prices for the poor: reports

Wednesday, July 4, 2007 06:00 PM
PARIS (AFP) - Rising world reliance on biofuels over the next decade threatens to drive up food prices in poor countries, where they are already facing upward pressure from consumer demand, a report warned Wednesday.

"Growing use of cereals, sugar, oilseeds and vegetable oils to satisfy the needs of a rapidly increasing biofuel industry is one of the main drivers in the outlook" for agricultural commodity prices, the Food and Agriculture Organization said.

The FAO, in a joint report with the Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development, said that between now and 2016 substantial amounts of maize in the United States, wheat and rapeseed in the European Union and sugar in Brazil would be needed for ethanol and bio-diesel production.

The study found that expected higher commodity prices reflecting such demand were of "particular concern" in food-importing developing countries and were likely to intensify a "food versus fuel" debate.

It said that while higher biofuel feedstock prices would benefit producers of such commodities, they also "imply higher costs and lower incomes for producers that use the same feedstock in the form of animal feed."

While overall inflation in most industrialised countries was expected to remain tame in the coming years, developing countries face an increase in food price inflation.

The upward pressure can be attributed to increased demand and changes in eating habits, as incomes rise, as well as to alternative uses for food crops, notably as components of biofuels, that have "led to higher domestic prices."

The study found that while energy prices have become easier to bear in recent years, "food price inflation has been increasingly accused of driving higher headline inflation" in the developing world.

But the report also cautioned that its projections could be altered by new production technologies, changes in biofuel prices or unexpected changes in prices for crude oil and feedstocks.

There are at present two families of biofuels, ethanols and biodiesels.

Ethanols are derived from sugar beets, wheat, corn or sugarcane. Biodiesels make use of transformed vegetable oils -- rape, soy or palm, for example -- that are then mixed with diesel fuel.

Elsewhere in the report, the OECD and the FAO said non-industrialised countries outside the 30-member OECD were likely to experience a sharp increase in demand for agricultural products, a trend that will spur domestic production and increased imports -- notably from other developing nations.

As a result OECD members could lose agricultural production and have reduced commodity exports to developing countries.

It will get lower income people in most counties eventually, all friven by the global warming hoax. Gore may have missed the presidency to Bush but he may actually end up cause more deathsand suffering than Bush.
Once underway it will be self driven through futures and options and the corporations will go where the profits are, govts no longer can protect the people as the key politicians in the two main parties get their share of the action.
The U.N. wont say anything because they have adopted depopulation of the earth, which is what this will help do.

Bolivian leader derides biofuels.

Reuters Published: Tuesday, July 03, 2007

Bolivia's president blasted ethanol production Friday, saying it was "sinister to convert food into fuel" in a speech that disputed an earlier address by Brazil's leader, who said biofuels production can boost the regional economy.

"The use of corn to produce biofuels has pushed prices up. More land is used to grow corn instead of other food crops like soy," Bolivian President Evo Morales said at a Mercosur trade bloc summit in the Paraguayan capital Asuncion.

His speech, attended by the presidents of Argentina, Brazil, Chile, Ecuador, Uruguay and Paraguay, came shortly after Brazilian President Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva said ethanol production should be seen as a motor of economic growth for the region.

Morales said he agreed with criticism of biofuels made by fellow leftist Latim American leaders, Fidel Castro of Cuba and Hugo Chavez of Venezuela.

The expression 'boost the economy' means help pay debts so more debt can be obtained.
Banks never starve, people do. When the people (consumers) can clear production then you have a doyant economy and you dont have to compete with other countries to clear production through exports.
Brazil is obviously trying to please the IMF which is leaning on it because of debt.
