NATO MULLS IMPORTANCE OF RUSSIAN INTELLIGENCE TIES
The daily "Kommersant" reported on February 5 that some officials of NATO member states are concerned by Hungary's decision to name Sandor Laborc of its National Security Office as head of NATO's special committee dealing with intelligence issues, including terrorism, a post that Hungary now holds as part of a normal rotation. Laborc studied from 1983-89 at the KGB's Moscow academy, named after Feliks Dzerzhinsky, who founded the Bolsheviks' secret police, the Cheka, in 1917. The paper notes that Laborc's appointment, which the socialist-led Hungarian government made despite protests by the conservative opposition, has led to discussion in some NATO governments about possible Russian intelligence penetration of the Atlantic alliance. "Kommersant" quoted an unnamed Western diplomat as saying that "Laborc was trained by the KGB. I don't think he changed his views" since then. . The old Communist nomenclature and secret services wield a great deal of clout in Romania and Bulgaria even now." The diplomat added that "still, this Hungarian episode is more than just disturbing.... The U.S. ambassador to NATO had to make but a single phone call to prevent it from happening. It would have become a signal to other countries that might be entertaining the illusion that they will get away with anything." Germany's "Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung" on February 5 quoted an unidentified NATO diplomat as arguing that "all" security experts from the former Warsaw Pact countries "went to school in Moscow" and that Laborc's biography is nothing unusual.

Unfavorable primaries lie ahead. She doesn't have the excitement, the great whoosh of feeling that accompanies a winning campaign. The guy from Chicago who was unknown a year ago continues to gain purchase, to move forward. For a soft little innocent, he's played a tough and knowing inside/outside game.

The day she admitted she'd written herself a check for $5 million, Obama's people crowed they'd just raised $3 million. But then his staff is happy. They're all getting paid.

Political professionals are leery of saying, publicly, that she is losing, because they said it before New Hampshire and turned out to be wrong. Some of them signaled their personal weariness with Clintonism at that time, and fear now, as they report, to look as if they are carrying an agenda. One part of the Clinton mystique maintains: Deep down journalists think she's a political Rasputin who will not be dispatched. Prince Yusupov served him cupcakes laced with cyanide, emptied a revolver, clubbed him, tied him up and threw him in a frozen river. When he floated to the surface they found he'd tried to claw his way from under the ice. That is how reporters see Hillary.

And that is a grim and over-the-top analogy, which I must withdraw. What I really mean is they see her as the Glenn Close character in "Fatal Attraction": "I won't be ignored, Dan!"

* * *

Mr. Obama's achievement on Super Tuesday was solid and reinforced trend lines. The popular vote was a draw, the delegate count a rough draw, but he won 13 states, and when you look at the map he captured the middle of the country from Illinois straight across to Idaho, with a second band, in the northern Midwest, of Minnesota and North Dakota. He won Missouri and Connecticut, in Mrs. Clinton's backyard. He won the Democrats of the red states.

On the wires Wednesday her staff was all but conceding she is not going to win the next primaries. Her superdelegates are coming under pressure that is about to become unrelenting. It was easy for party hacks to cleave to Mrs Clinton when she was inevitable. Now Mr. Obama's people are reportedly calling them saying, Your state voted for me and so did your congressional district. Are you going to jeopardize your career and buck the wishes of the people back home?

Mrs. Clinton is stoking the idea that Mr. Obama is too soft to withstand the dread Republican attack machine. (I nod in tribute to all Democrats who have succeeded in removing the phrase "Republican and Democratic attack machines" from the political lexicon. Both parties have them.) But Mr. Obama will not be easy for Republicans to attack. He will be hard to get at, hard to address. There are many reasons, but a primary one is that the fact of his race will freeze them. No one, no candidate, no party, no heavy-breathing consultant, will want to cross any line--lines that have never been drawn, that are sure to be shifting and not always visible--in approaching the first major-party African-American nominee for president of the United States.
He is the brilliant young black man as American dream. No consultant, no matter how opportunistic and hungry, will think it easy--or professionally desirable--to take him down in a low manner. If anything, they've learned from the Clintons in South Carolina what that gets you. With Mr. Obama the campaign will be about issues. "He'll raise your taxes." He will, and I suspect Americans may vote for him anyway. But the race won't go low.
Mrs. Clinton would be easier for Republicans. With her cavalcade of scandals, they'd be delighted to go at her. They'd get medals for it. Consultants would get rich on it.
The Democrats have it exactly wrong. Hillary is the easier candidate, Mr. Obama the tougher. Hillary brings negative; it's fair to hit her back with negative. Mr. Obama brings hope, and speaks of a better way. He's not Bambi, he's bulletproof.

Barack Obama swept Democratic contests in three states yesterday, gaining an edge on Hillary Clinton in their seesaw battle for the party's presidential nomination. There are six more primaries and caucuses in the next 10 days.

Obama won Louisiana's Democratic primary with 57 percent of the vote and bested Clinton in the Washington and Nebraska caucuses by a 2-1 margin.

Its a quandry for the peasants to keep them occupied while the power brokers pull the strings.

It looks like McCain has been chosen for the Repubs so they will not win against Hillary.

Someone fresh and new like Obama has a big attraction because Americans would like it to be a much better nation than it is today, but when it gets close they wont back someone so inexperienced since the nation is in a such a bad state so he will end up nominated for vice president, I'm picking.

East Timor -- Rebel soldiers shot and critically wounded East Timor President Jos? Ramos-Horta and opened fire on the prime minister Monday . Mr. Ramos-Horta underwent surgery at an Australian hospital. The Portuguese began to trade with the island of Timor in the early 16th century.
In 2002 an Australian-led International Stabilization Force (ISF) deployed to Timor, and oil from Indonesia to
Australia and UK.

I doubt it. They will want Iraq to remain substantially unstable to suit their policy in the Middle East. If peace was to start it will be harder the force changes.

If officials discover that companies sit on goods for months to later sell them at inflated prices, they "should be seized and taken under government control," Mr. Chavez said.

The govt sets a precedent for seizing private property. It should be the consumer that punishes bad business practise- power to the people not the govt!.

(Xinhua) -- China stressed on Tuesday that United Nations Resolution 1244 is still the political and legal basis of resolving the issue of Kosovo's status.

"Unless the UN Security Council has other decisions which should be abided by, the UN Security Council's Resolution 1244 is still the political basis and legal foundation of resolving the issue of Kosovo's status," Foreign Ministry spokesman Liu Jianchao told a regular press conference.

Liu was responding to a question about whether China would participate in the UN mission in Kosovo.

He said since 1999, the international presence in Kosovo, including its combination and tasks, had been authorized and approved by the UN Security Council.

"Before adopting any new resolution by the Security Council, any efforts or acts to resolve the Kosovo issue should accord with relevant regulations of the Resolution 1244," said Liu

He said that China would continue to play an active role in the settlement of the Kosovo issue.

China has expressed grave concern over Kosovo's unilateral declaration of independence on Monday.

"Kosovo's unilateral act can produce a series of results that will lead to seriously negative influence on peace and stability in the Balkan region and on the realization of building a multi-ethnic society in Kosovo, which China is deeply concerned about," Kosovo has been under UN administration since mid-1999, after NATO air-strikes drove out Serbian forces from the province.
