Or maybe it won't."

Top Army Official Says Military Force "Worn Thin"

Anne Flaherty, writing for The Associated Press, reports, "The top uniformed military officer on Wednesday described a tired U.S. military force, worn thin by operations in Iraq and Afghanistan and unlikely to come home in large numbers anytime soon." And, Patrick Cockburn, writing for The Independent UK, reports from Baghdad: "The Shia family got the worst of the fighting and, after suffering seven dead, sent a desperate message asking for help to the Mehdi Army, the powerful Shia militia of the Shia cleric Muqtada al-Sadr that once would have rushed to defend them. On this occasion, however, the local Mehdi Army commander turned them down, saying: 'We can do nothing because we are under orders not to break the ceasefire.'"

Residents angry with phone mast plan

By Carolyn Robertson

Residents opposed to a mobile phone mast in the middle of their neighbourhood are calling for support to launch a campaign against it.

They were enraged when members of Mid Sussex District Council's central area planning committee gave approval for a mast to be put next to the railway embankment and bridge in Balcombe Road, Haywards Heath.

The 10-metre telegraph-style mast with an equipment cabinet at its base will be operated by Orange PCS Ltd. The equipment will replace an existing site at Central Sussex College, on a building that is due to be demolished.

Councillors received 20 letters and two petitions signed by 22 people objecting to the mast because of health fears as well as visual impact and affect on property prices.


Rejecting national ID

The American Spectator
by Jim Harper


With so many states on record opposing REAL ID, the feds have been shifting through numerous stories trying to justify their national ID. First, they said it was a national security tool. But by now everyone realizes how easy it would be for criminal organizations and terrorists to avoid or defeat a national ID system. Then REAL ID became a way to control illegal immigration. But it has the same defects here too. Illegal immigrants will use a mix of forgery, fraud, and corruption at any motor vehicles bureau in the country to get around REAL ID. Driving illegal immigrants further into criminality deepens the problem rather than fixing it. And should law-abiding American citizens really have to carry a national ID to get at illegal immigrants? Just who is the criminal here? Next, we were told that having a national ID was about identity fraud. But putting our personal information, Social Security Numbers, and basic identity documents like birth certificates into a nationwide string of government databases is a recipe for more identity theft, not less...

Government mortgage bailout could make problem worse

International Society for Individual Liberty
by Jarret Wollstein


[I]f the mortgage meltdown continues, we could see many bank and business failures … hundreds of thousands of families out on the streets … and a major recession in 2008. In the wake of all of this calamitous news, it isn’t surprising that the government has taken action. Specifically, President Bush has called for a ‘voluntary’ 5-year freeze on low introductory mortgage rates for families now making payments but unable to afford higher rates. Only primary home owners would qualify, and they must have a perfect record of home payments. Once such a measure is introduced, it would likely expand. Indeed, others are already proposing a permanent, mandatory freeze in rates. While the desire to ‘do something,’ about the mortgage crisis is natural, a mortgage rate freeze is unlikely to do more than prolong the grief and could well turn what would have been a short recession into a protracted depression...

US Admiral Confirms Secret Camp at Gitmo

Lafayette Daily Advertiser


Somewhere amid the cactus-studded hills on this sprawling Navy base, separate from the cells where hundreds of men suspected of links to al-Qaida and the Taliban have been locked up for years, is a place even more closely guarded — a jailhouse so protected that its very location is top secret. For the first time, the top commander of detention operations at Guantanamo has confirmed the existence of the mysterious Camp 7...

Senate Republicans block “stimulus” bill

Quincy Patriot Ledger


The fate of $600-$1,200 rebate checks for more than 100 million Americans is in limbo after Senate Republicans blocked a bid by Democrats to add $44 billion in help for the elderly, disabled veterans, the unemployed and businesses to the House-passed economic aid package. GOP senators banded together Wednesday to thwart the $205 billion plan, leaving Democrats with a difficult choice either to quickly accept a House bill they have said is inadequate or risk being blamed for delaying a measure designed as a swift shot in the arm for the lagging economy...

Bush: US “may” torture again

BBC News [UK]


US President George Bush might consider authorising the controversial interrogation method of waterboarding in future, the White House has said. Belief that an attack was imminent and legal advice would be major factors in the decision, his spokesman said. On Tuesday the CIA admitted for the first time that it had used the method, which simulates drowning and has been condemned as torture by rights groups. … White House spokesman Tony Fratto maintained that the practice — which the CIA said it had carried out on three high-profile al-Qaeda detainees — was legal...

Unexplainable Cutting Of Internet Cables Points To Sabotage


Cable Cutting Mayhem: 5th Undersea Internet Cable Cut

It began with two undersea telecommunications cables that served as data links between Europe and the Middle East being cut, but it's now escalated with a further three undersea internet cables being cut, with major disruptions to internet services.

The cable-cutter mystery

by Justin Raimondo


I was skeptical, at first, of speculation over the cutting of two cables linking the Middle East with the Internet, which had it as part of some Vast Neocon Conspiracy to isolate the region prior to a US military assault. However, when two more cables — this time, in the Persian Gulf — were mysteriously cut, I began to wonder …. In a piece headlined ‘Cable cutter nutters chase conspiracy theories,’ The Register goes out of its way to laugh off the prospect that what we are witnessing is a military operation, or the prelude to one, sniffing ‘there’s little more than suspicions to work with’ since we’ve yet to reach the damaged cables. Yet, given the sort of government we are dealing with — a regime that lied us into one war, and is not-so-subtly trying to finagle us into yet another one — why shouldn’t we be suspicious? We’d have to be crazy not to be...
