11.Feb.2007 https://www.cannonfire.blogspot.com/ Iran Iran Iran -- and MORE war in Lebanon? Paul Rogers, a Professor at Bradford University in northern England, has a frightening analysis of the logistics of the U.S. deployment in the Persian Gulf. Of the Ronald Reagan carrier strike group: Two aspects of the carrier's operations are of interest. The first is that the carrier only returned from its previous deployment to the Arabian Sea in July 2006, something usually followed by a longer period of home-porting; instead, the ship has since been taking part in exercises designed to maintain a high state of military readiness. The second concerns the current operations. The navy says that the carrier is actually deploying to the western Pacific to take over from the older carrier, the USS Kitty Hawk - this being the only carrier permanently based abroad (at Yokosuka in Japan) + currently undergoing maintenance.
What is a bit unusual here is that the Kitty Hawk's three-month maintenance work is being undertaken by the crew, not external contractors, with the ship retaining the ability to deploy at short notice if need be. Furthermore, this maintenance started on 8 January, whereas the Ronald Reagan carrier battle-group will not even arrive in the area until mid-February. This does not seem to fit with standing in for the Kitty Hawk and does mean that another carrier battle-group could actually be deployed to the Gulf at short notice. Moreover, this is a strike group that has a crew experienced in recent operations in the Gulf. And: Thus the naval forces now gathering in the region include two carrier battle-groups and two expeditionary strike groups, with the possibility of yet another carrier battle-group, centred on the USS Ronald Reagan, being barely ten days away.
This combination of events does not mean that a war with Iran is imminent, although it does mean that a remarkable concentration of forces will be available to the US by late March and early April - including precisely those kinds of forces that would be employed to defend US and coalition assets in the region should a crisis with Iran escalate to open conflict. And that's not the only bad news in the region, folks. According to Justin Raimondo,
the Israelis want a rematch with Lebanon, site of a very humiliating ass-whomping. Lebanon Part II has (per Raimondo) an intimate connection with the imminent attack on Iran:
Last time around, the neocons in the administration reportedly egged the somewhat reluctant Israelis on + were sorely disappointed when Tel Aviv relented. Next time, they'll go all the way to Beirut – and won't stop until the Americans get to Tehran.
Those who fear war with Iran had best look to Lebanon, where the first shots are being fired. It is, so far, a proxy war, with the Israelis as our stand-ins and Hezbollah allied with the Iranians. It is only a matter of time, however, before the proxies are dispensed with + the Americans meet the Iranians on the battlefield.
This is what the American "surge" in Iraq is all about: the White House is preparing for a confrontation with the Iranians. Interesting to see Israel pictured as the tail and DC as the dog. Perhaps we can see neoconservatism as an international force above and beyond both nations? Remember how easily both parties in Congress rushed to endorse Israel's cruel bombardment? The Israel lobby has no reason to expect anything but a repeat of this shameless complicity. You'll also recall that the "antiwar" liberals of the Huffington Post crowd had practically zero to say about the deaths of thousands of Lebanese + the rape of a nation. After all, their favorite Democrats in congress voted to endorse the merciless Israeli attack. Hillary Clinton hailed the bombardment of Beirut airport as a valiant act of "self-defense" on Israel's part. A few paragraphs ago, Israel was the manipulated, not the manipulator. Notive how we've segued rather quickly here from Israel back into blame-the-lobby mode.

"Die DNA ist fast so gut erhalten wie solche, die man im Zusammenhang mit modernen Kriminalfällen hat", sagt Susanne Hummel. Sie konnte feststellen, dass es sich bei der Mehrzahl der Skelette um Mitglieder einer Großfamilie handelt, denen die Lichtensteinhöhle offenbar über mehrere Generationen als Familiengruft gedient hat. Dass die Knochen die 3000 Jahre nahezu unbeschadet überstehen konnten, ist der immer konstanten Temperatur von sechs bis acht Grad in der Höhle und dem kalkhaltigen Gestein zu verdanken. Ein Glücksfall für Hummel: "Bessere Bedingungen, um DNA zu konservieren, könnte man künstlich kaum schaffen." So lagert in ihrem Kühlraum das wahrscheinlich älteste menschliche Erbgut der Wissenschaftsgeschichte.

11.Feb.2007 VIDEO: Feith Stands By False Claim That Iraq Had Links To Al Qaeda - Think Progress  -

In an interview with, former Undersecretary for Defense Doug Feith stood by the now-debunked claim that Iraq had a pre-war relationship with al Qaeda. Feith told Wolf Blitzer that former CIA Director George Tenet’s statement in October 2002 claiming there was a link is still “the best information on the subject.”

Pressed to defend his claim, Feith said, “I’ve not been in the government for the last year and a half — there may be some more intelligence on that subject.” Watch it:

Feith didn’t need to be in government to know that Tenet’s

00.Oct.2002 statement has since been discredited. Subsequent analyses have debunked any relationship between Iraq and al Qaeda. For example:

Senate Intelligence Committee Report Found No “Material Or Operational Support.” Saddam Hussein “was distrustful of al-Qa’ida and viewed Islamic extremists as a threat to this regime, refusing all requests from al Qa’ida to provide material or operational support.” [Senate Phase II report, 9/8/06]

9-11 Commission Report Said No “Collaborative Operational Relationship” Existed Between Iraq and Al Qaeda.

We have seen no evidence that these or the earlier contacts ever developed into a collaborative operational relationship. Nor have we seen evidence indicating that Iraq cooperated with al Qaeda in developing or carrying out any attacks against the United States.” [9-11 Commission Final Report, 7/22/04]

Senate Intelligence Committee Report Found No “Established, Formal” Relationship Between Iraq and Al Qaeda. The Senate Intelligence Committee’s report said that there was no “established, formal” relationship between Iraq and Al Qaeda, nor proof that the two had collaborated in attacks.

He added that Libby had called to complain about NBC’s coverage of the Plame affair: “What the hell is going on with ‘Hardball’?Russert quoted Libby as having asked him.

U.S. military officials reported that a helicopter operated by a private security firm came down in Iraq last week, marking the sixth downing of a helicopter in three weeks . “American officials say the streak strongly suggests that insurgents have adapted their tactics and are now putting more effort into shooting down the aircraft.”

Many State Department employees “have outright refused repeated requests that they go to Iraq, while others have demanded that they be assigned only to Baghdad and not be sent outside the more secure Green Zone.” The employees who do sign up for Iraq duty have “tended to be younger, more entry-level types + not experienced, seasoned diplomats.”

The bipartisan U.S. Commission on International Religious Freedom yesterday warned “that the Bush administration, in its zeal to secure the nation’s borders and stem the tide of illegal immigrants, may be leaving asylum seekers vulnerable to deportation and harsh treatment.”

President Bush has proposed a significant jump in funding — 31 percent — “for an anti-drug advertising campaign that government-funded research shows is at best useless and at worst has increased drug use among some teens.” The program is Rep.

11.Feb.2007 Tony Snow, House Sergeant At Arms Rebut Right-Wing Attacks On Pelosi - Nico  -

You know the right wing has gone off the ledge when even Tony Snow can’t stand by their attacks.

During today’s White House press briefing, Snow beat back the false claim that House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) wants to misuse government resources. Snow called the conservative attacks a “silly story,” arguing that it is “important for the Speaker to have this kind of protection and travel.

SNOW: I’ll just repeat our position, which is, as Speaker of the House, she is entitled to military transport + that the arrangements, the proper arrangements are being made between the Sergeant of Arms office in the House of Representatives and the U.S. Department of Defense. We think it’s appropriate + so, again, I think this is much ado about not a whole lot. It is important for the Speaker to have this kind of protection and travel. It was certainly appropriate for Speaker Hastert. So we trust that all sides will get this worked out.

Also today, House Sergeant at Arms Bill Livingood released a new statement emphasizing that it was he — not Pelosi — who requested she use an aircraft capable of flying non-stop to her district in California to “ensure communications capabilities and also enhance security.”

In a post 9/11 threat environment, it is reasonable and prudent to provide military aircraft to the Speaker for official travel between Washington and her district. … The fact that Speaker Pelosi lives in California compelled me to request an aircraft that is capable of making non-stop flights for security purposes, unless such an aircraft is unavailable. This will ensure communications capabilities and also enhance security. … I regret that an issue that is exclusively considered and decided in a security context has evolved into a political issue.

UPDATE: Watch Rep. Bart Gordon (D-TN) using Snow’s words to squash the plane story on the House floor.

11.Feb.2007 Webb ‘Very Worried’ Bush’s Iran Provocations ‘Might Set Something Off In There’ - Payson  -

President Bush has ratcheted up military pressure on Iran in recent months, most notably by dispatching two naval carrier groups to the Persian Gulf, “the largest concentration of naval power projection in that regionsince the start of the Iraq war. Vice President Cheney explained that sending the carriers “sends a very strong signal to everybody in the region” that “we clearly have significant capabilities…to deal with the Iranian threat.”

Tonight on Hardball, Sen. Jim Webb (D-VA) said that during his time as Navy Secretary under President Reagan — and “until very recently” — the U.S. “never operated” aircraft carriers within the Gulf because it risked confrontation. “The chance of accidentally bumping into something that would start a diplomatic situation was pretty high,” Webb explained.

With the tensions as high as they are, I’m very worried that we might accidentally set something off in there and we need, as a Congress, to get ahead of the ballgame here.”

11.Feb.2007 Hastert Used Military Aircraft To Fly Foley Page Scandal Figure To Washington - Nico  -

The media continues to pound a false Washington Times report accusing House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) of wasting government resources by “demanding permanent access to a large military jet for herself, her staff, other Members and supporters.”

In fact, Pelosi’s office has stated repeatedly, from the beginning, that “it is up to the Air Force to decide what type and size of plane will be required,” and that she “will not use the plane for political travel.”

Conservatives have tried to bolster their attack by claiming that former Speaker Dennis Hastert (R-IL) only used his military aircraft for official business. The Washington Times quoted an unnamed “former Hastert aide” saying Hastert “did not use military planes for political trips or regularly transport his family.” But Chicago Sun-Times reporter Lynne Sweet says that isn’t true:

On Sunday, Oct. 1, Hastert’s team was scrambling to contain the escalating fallout from the Foley page scandal.

That day, Rep. John Shimkus (R-Ill.), then the chairman of the page board, had gotten an urgent phone call from Stokke. The Hastert team wanted Shimkus to return to Washington immediately from his home in southern Illinois in order to appear at a press conference on Monday with the Speaker + they did not want to deal with commercial flight schedules.

So at 8 p.m. that day, Shimkus arrived at the military side of the Scott Air Force Base near Belleville to board the Speaker’s jet that had been dispatched for him.

The plane then headed to an airport near Aurora, Ill., to pick up Hastert, who had been weekending at his home in Plano, before flying on to Washington.

That Monday, Hastert and Shimkus headlined a press conference in the Capitol to talk about the Foley resignation.

For those who don’t remember, Shimkus is the former House Page Board chair who learned of Foley’s inappropriate emails and then refused to inform the Democrat on the board, Rep. Dale Kildee (D-MI).

Pelosi said today she will fly commercial rather than use the aircraft offered by the Pentagon, which cannot reach her home district in California without stopping to refuel. Digg It!

11.Feb.2007 Gates and Pace Say Congressional Debate On Escalation Does Not Harm The Troops - Amanda  -

Conservatives have repeatedly tried to argue that opposition to President Bush’s escalation in Iraq undermines the troops.

00.Jan.2007 Vice President Cheney said that a resolution opposing the Bush’s escalation would hurt the troops:

It won’t stop us + it would be, I think, detrimental from the standpoint of the troops .

Rep. Duncan Hunter reiterated this talking point today, stating, “I do not think you can send a message that is going to raise the morale of the troops while at the same time sending a message that we don’t support the mission.” But in their testimony before the House Armed Services Committee today, Joint Chiefs of Staff chairman Peter Pace and Defense Secretary Robert Gates disputed these arguments.

Pace : As long as this Congress continues to do what it has done, which is to provide the resources for the mission, the dialogue will be the dialogue + the troops will feel supported .

Gates : I think they’re [the troops are] sophisticated enough to understand that that’s what the debate’s really about .

Gates, apparently, has had a change of heart. On Jan. 26, he declared that any Iraq resolution opposing Bush’s escalation plan “certainly emboldens the enemy and our adversaries.”
11.Feb.2007 CBO Study: Phased Withdrawal Would Save Half A Trillion Dollars - Faiz  -

In a letter to Senate Budget Committee Chairman Kent Conrad (D-ND), the Congressional Budget Office reports that the war in Iraq has so far cost U.S. taxpayers $351 billion. The total amount, approved and requested, by the Bush administration is $532 billion.

The letter attempts to answer how much more Iraq will cost over the next decade (read it here). To answer that question, the CBO laid out two possible scenarios + the costs of the respective plans:

First, under a “stay the course” scenario with a gradual drawdown that leaves 75,000 soldiers overseas in 2013 and each year thereafter, the cost would be $919 billion for the next ten years .

The second scenario proposes a faster drawdown, leaving only 30,000 military personnel overseas over the 2010–2017 period, although not necessarily in Iraq and Afghanistan. The cost of that plan would be $472 billion for the next ten years .

In other words, phased withdrawal from Iraq would save $447 billion over the next decade.

The CBO acknowledges a great amount of uncertainty in its calculations. “The President has announced a plan to increase the number of military personnel deployed to Iraq, but it is not clear how many troops will be involved, how long the size of deployed forces will remain elevated, or what the nature of the United States’ long-term military commitment in Iraq and elsewhere will be.”

As the letter makes clear, hundreds of billions of dollars hang in the balance depending on the answers to those questions.
Champions Pelosi Smear, Covers False Washington Times Story Six Days Straight - Nico  -

Last month, when a right-wing publication smeared Sen. Barack Obama (D-IL), helped debunk the report and called out media outlets that ran with the false story. Anderson Cooper told viewers: “That’s the difference between talking about news and reporting it. You send a reporter, check the facts + you decide at home.

Now, the Washington Times (owned by the same entity that published the Obama smear) has launched a series of attacks on House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA), claiming that Pelosi is “demanding permanent access to a large military jet for herself, her staff, other Members and supporters.”

As with the Obama smear, the Times story is based entirely on quotes from unnamed sources. Yet, instead of investigating the report, ’s Lou Dobbs has covered the story every day for six straight days — Feb 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 + 6amplifying the attacks and repeating the inaccuracies.

Here are Dobbs’ claims along with the facts:

1) Dobbs: Pelosi “wants the U.S. Air Force for personal accommodation.”

FACT: Pelosi’s use of a military aircraft is about security, not “personal accomodation.” It was House Sergeant at Arms Wilson Livingood who initiated inquiries into the aircraft. “I advised Speaker Pelosi that the US Air Force had made an airplane available to Speaker Hastert” following 9/11, Livingood wrote + “I offered to call the U.S. Air Force and Department of Defense to seek clarification of the guidelines [which governed Speaker Hastert’s use of a plane].”

2) Dobbs: Pelosi will use the plane “whenever she sees fit.”

FACT: Pelosi’s office has already said she “will not use the plane for political travel.”

3) Dobbs: Pelosi could fly to her district non-stop “in the plane that Hastert was using.”

FACT: Both the Washington Post and Roll Call have reported that the plane used by Speaker Hastert was too small for Pelosi since it “needs to refuel every 2,000 miles and could not make the nonstop haul to California. ‘The Air Force determined that [Pelosi’s] safety would be best ensured by using a plane that has the fuel capacity to go coast-to-coast,’” a Pelosi spokesperson said.

4) Dobbs: Pelosi “wants a plane that accommodates 42 people, private stateroom. … She could take a circus with her.”

11.Feb.2007 No Defense Secretary Has Testified Before Budget Panel Since Iraq War Began - Nico  -

No Defense Secretary has testified before the Senate Budget Committee since the war in Iraq began nearly four years and $400 billion dollars ago.

Prior to being sworn in, Secretary Robert Gates pledged to Budget Chairman Kent Conrad (D-ND) that he would appear before the committee. But after agreeing to testify next Thursday, Gates abruptly cancelled. Conrad and Sen. Judd Gregg (R-NH), the ranking member on the committee, wrote Gates yesterday asking him to appear by March 1.

The timing of Gates’ cancellation is noteworthy, coming “less than a week after the nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office (CBO) alarmed lawmakers by projecting that the president’s plan to increase troop numbers in Iraq could cost more than four times the $5.6 billion promised by the Bush administration.”
11.Feb.2007 Norquist: Bush’s Advisers Telling Him ‘Invade Iran. Then Everyone Will See How Smart We Are’ - Guest  -

In this month’s issue of Vanity Fair, Craig Unger writes that the same neoconservative advisers who advocated for the Iraq war are now recycling the same tactics to push for the bombing of Iran. Unger reports that not all of Bush’s key conservative allies are pleased with the administration’s course on Iran:

Everything the advocates of war said would happen hasn’t happened,” says the president of Americans for Tax Reform, Grover Norquist, an influential conservative who backed the Iraq invasion. “And all the things the critics said would happen have happened. [The president’s neoconservative advisers] are effectively saying, ‘Invade Iran. Then everyone will see how smart we are.’ But after you’ve lost x number of times at the roulette wheel, do you double-down?”

For example, Richard Perle, a former Bush administration official, has said, “I have very little doubtthat Bush would order “necessary military action” against Iran. “Make no mistake, President Bush will need to bomb Iran’s nuclear facilities before leaving office,” wrote American Enterprise Institute analyst Joshua Muravchik.

Two other important points from the Unger article:

1) Retired Defense Intelligence official Patrick Lang told Unger that Bush has ordered StratCom — the military command responsible for “nuclear weapons, missile defense and protection against weapons of mass destruction” — to draw up plans for a “massive strike against Iran.” Lang noted that the shift away from Central Command “to StratCom indicates they are talking about a really punishing air-force and naval air attack [on Iran].”

2) Former CIA officer Philip Giraldi said, “I’ve heard from sources at the Pentagon that their impression is that the White House has made a decision that war is going to happen.” Digg It!Ryan Powers
11.Feb.2007 Right Wing Uses Erroneous Report To Smear Gore - Think Progress  -

Last week, The Guardian reported that the Exxon-funded American Enterprise Institute was offering to pay global warming deniers to push back on the new IPCC climate change study.

This morning, incorrectly reported that during an appearance in Spain, Al Gore had blamed the White Housenot AEI — for offering to pay the scientists. The headline read: “Gore says Bush administration paying scientists to dispute global warming.” But hours later, the site issued a retraction saying Gore had “responded to a question” from a reporter “that incorrectly implied the Bush administration was making payments to scientists.” Gore was referring to AEI when he said, “They’re offering cash for so-called skeptics who will try to confuse people about what the science really says.”

s correction hasn’t stopped the right wing from recycling the false headline in order to smear Gore. A headline from today’s Drudge Report:

Following Drudge’s lead, Fox News’ John Gibson regurgitated the incorrect story. Gore “just won’t shut up about his climate change crusade,” Gibson said. “He’s now charging that scientists who doubt the global warming argument are being bribed by our government and others to betray science.”

Army Reserve Capt. Jon Soltz, 29 + former 101st Airborne Division Sgt.

11.Feb.2007 White House Cherry Picks Climate Change Quotes to Claim Bush Accepts Global Warming Science - Payson  -

Yesterday, the White House released an “Open Letteron President Bush’s views on climate change. A portion of the letter argued Bush has “consistenly” acknowledged “humans are contributing” to global warming:

Yet on three occasions last year, Bush claimed there was still a “debate” among scientists over whether global warming is manmade or natural:

– “I think we have a problem on global warming. I think there is a debate about whether it’s caused by mankind or whether it’s caused naturally, but it’s a worthy debate. It’s a debate, actually, that I’m in the process of solving…” [7/6/06]

– “There is a debate over whether it’s manmade or naturally caused.” [6/26/06]

– “First of all, the globe is warming. The fundamental debate — is it manmade or natural?” [3/29/06]

The “fundamental debate” ended long ago among climate scientists. Last week, the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) — a group consisting of the world’s foremost climatologists — issued a report that represents “history’s most definitive statement of scientific consensus on climate change.” Its main findings: global warming is “unequivocal” and human activity is the main driver, “very likely” causing most of the rise in temperatures since 1950.

10.Feb.2007 https://www.cannonfire.blogspot.com/ Bush on Iran: Incredible The following exchange comes from a UPI story, not The Onion. The fact that Moon owns UPI adds to the jaw-dropping nature of this dialog:
At a farewell reception at Blair House for the retiring chief of protocol, Don Ensenat, who was President Bush's Yale roommate, the president shook hands with Washington Life Magazine's Soroush Shehabi. A grandson of one of the late Shah's ministers, Soroush said, "Mr. President, I simply want to say one U.S. bomb on Iran and the regime will remain in power for another 20 or 30 years and 70 million Iranians will become radicalized."
"I know," President Bush answered.
"But does Vice President Cheney know?" asked Soroush.
The president chuckled and walked away. We're all jaded. We don't get astonished easily these days. But if those words don't floor you, nothing will.
According to the
Guardian, the advanced war plans on Iran are already underway: Neo-conservatives, particularly at the Washington-based American Enterprise Institute, are urging Mr Bush to open a new front against Iran. So too is the vice-president, Dick Cheney. What can one say?
Any attack on Iran will create a terrorist reaction, since they have no other retaliatory options: Bush himself admits as much. Any terrorist action by Iran will open the way for conscription, ground war -- nuclear war.
What can one say?

Remember when Clinton proposed spending a few million on a late-night basketball program for schools? Conservatives screamed loud enough to shatter granite.
It's pretty clear to me + to most other thinking people, that the money did not disappear through inefficiency. It was heisted. The Iraqis did not get it. Someone intercepted it.

Dennoch bauen die Offiziellen vor. Es werde versucht, das Problem auf diplomatischer und politischer Ebene zu lösen, zitiert die "NYT" einen Regierungsbeamten. Man wolle damit aber nicht die Grundlage für einen amerikanischen Angriff auf den Iran bereiten. Genau diesen Vorwurf hatte der iranische UN-Botschafter kürzlich in einem Artikel für die britische "Times" erhoben: Die Bush-Regierung versuche, "Iran zum Sündenbock zu machen und gefälschte Beweise für iranische Aktivitäten im Irak zu präsentieren".

Weder die Technik, noch die Fabrikationsmittel, so glauben die Ermittler, seien im Irak zu finden.

Hinzu komme, dass einige Komponenten der Bomben mit Beschriftungen aus iranischen Bombenfabriken gefunden worden seien.

Für James Danna, Chef eines Bataillons in Bagdad, ist die Waffe längst zur politischen Waffe geworden.

"Sie werden verstärkt eingesetzt, wenn wir gegen die Schiiten-Milizen vorgehen", zitiert ihn die Zeitung.

"Sie wollen uns von unserer Mission fernhalten, große Teile der Bevölkerung zu schützen."
Der Hund sei offenbar noch lebendig gewesen, als die Täter ihn in das Gerät steckten.

Die Teenager hatten Pfoten und Schnauze des Tieres demnach mit Klebeband umwickelt und den Hund in Farbe getunkt, bevor sie ihn in dem Mikorwellengerät töteten.

Zwei Teenager sind in den USA zu je zehn Jahren Haft verurteilt worden, weil sie einen Hund getötet haben.

Die Brüder hatten das Tier in ein Mikrowellengerät gesteckt und den Kadaver anschließend Kindern aus der Nachbarschaft gezeigt.

Der Anwalt des 17-Jährigen und seines 19-jährigen Bruders sagte nach dem Urteil, er hätte sich einen Richterspruch gewünscht, der sich stärker auf Rehabilitation konzentriere.

Die Teenager hatten sich schuldig bekannt. Die Anklagen umfassten Einbruch, kriminelle Sachbeschädigung, terroristische Drohungen und Grausamkeit gegen Kinder, berichtet Associated Press.

Nachsatz: Und die französische KP heute?  

Sofort nach Erscheinen des Buches von Besse/Pennetier hat die französische KP ihren Forschungen die historische Seriosität zuerkannt und sich nochmals (selbst)kritisch mit dieser Periode ihrer Geschichte auseinandergesetzt. Die parteinahe – ehemals parteieigene - Tageszeitung L’Humanité publizierte die Erkenntnisse des neuen Buches in gebotener Ausführlichkeit (vgl. https://www.humanite.fr/journal/2006-12-12/2006-12-12-842044 ) + interviewte die beiden Autoren (vgl.   https://www.humanite.fr/journal/2006-12-12/2006-12-12-842049 ).

11.Dez.2006 Die Partei selbst erklärte in einem Kommuniqué unmittelbar nachdem die neue Publikation auf dem Büchermarkt war:

(...) Das Buch von Claude Pennetier und Jean-Pierre Besse, Historikern, die für die Ernsthaftigkeit ihrer wissenschaftlichen Arbeiten anerkannt sind, enthüllt, dass diese Strategie (Anm.: der KP im Jahre 1940) auch von antisemitischen Ä uß erungen begleitet war, die ekelhaft sind.

Wir können diese Äuß erungen nur mit größter Energie verdammen + uns dabei auch die Warnungen von hohen Parteiverantwortlichen von damals stützen.

Diese nicht zu rechtfertigende Strategie, die auch das Produkt einer Analyse war, die durch die Gesamtheit der Führungskader der UdSSR + der Kommunistischen Internationalen geteilt wurde, wurde glücklichweise im

00.Aug.1940 aufgegeben. (...)“ (Vgl. https://www.humanite.fr/journal/2006-12-12/2006-12-12-842045

Aber gleichzeitig lie b Otto Abetz im eigenen Auftrag eine neue Zeitung herausgeben, La France au travail (Frankreich bei der Arbeit).

Diese ähnelte in ihrer Aufmachung und in ihrem Stil der früheren KP-Presse, enthielt aber im Gegensatz zu ihr eine intensive antisemitische Propaganda

Das Spiel des Nazi-Botschafters Otto Abetz  

Abetz, das ist auch aus anderen Zusammenhängen her bekannt, war ein sehr geschickter Manipulateur.

Der aus dem deutsch-französischen Grenzgebiet in der Nähe von Mannheim stammende ehemalige Lehrer kannte die Pariser Intellektuellenszene seit den

20er und

frühen 30er Jahren sehr gut, als er dort die deutsch-französische Annäherung und Aussöhnung predigte – zunächst auf eigene Rechnung, später aber im Auftrag des Nazistaats.

Otto Abetz war mit französischen Rechten und Linken, ihren jeweiligen Reaktionsmustern gut vertraut.

In den ersten Jahren der Besatzung manipulierte er sehr unterschiedliche politische Kräfte, spielte sie gegeneinander aus + scheute auch vor Gesprächen mit den faschistischen oder Nazi-Ideen entgegen gesetzten Kräften nicht zurück.

Dabei ging es ihm unter anderem auch darum, den offiziellen deutschen Bündnispartner – das Regime in Vichy – in seine Grenzen zu verweisen, indem er auch noch andere politische Bewegungen in Frankreich hofierte.

Abetz wollte kein Frankreich, dass das faschistische oder nationalsozialistische Modell nachahmt, sondern ein möglichst innerlich geschwächtes Frankreich;

denn er wollte den deutschen Führungsanspruch aufrechterhalten, hätte aber den erklärten französischen Faschisten einen Status als (potenziell gleichberechtigte) Verbündete zugestehen müssen.

Deshalb schwächte Abetz auch die Vichy-Eliten und die französischen Faschisten, indem er mit Linken oder ehemaligen Linken sprach, und umgekehrt.

Die SS opponierte aber gegen diesen Kurs + im Kriegsverlauf wurde Abetz (

00.000.1942-00.000.1943 ) ein Jahr lang in Berlin festgehalten, wo man ihm vorwarf, einen so eigenmächtigen Kurs zu verfolgen. 
00.000.1942 Odette Janvier wurde ins KZ Ravensbrück deportiert, überlebte jedoch den WWII.

00.Sep.1941 Jean Catelas starb als einer der ersten französischen Kommunisten unter der Guillotine des Vichy-Regimes.  
Und eben darum hatte ein Teil der Armeeführung den Verteidigungskrieg gegen den am

10.Mai 1940 beginnenden deutschen Einmarsch mit allen Mitteln sabotiert. In der so genannten „ drôle de guerre “ – dem komischen Krieg, wie jener Abschnitt des

WWII. in Frankreich bis heute he ißt – hatten gro ße Teile der französischen Armee kampflos verloren.

Die Artillerie etwa wurde Generäle der Republik unter Verschluss gehalten und kam nicht zum Einsatz.
Pfui Teufel! Eben darum hatten einflussreiche Kreise des Bürgertums postuliert: „ Plutôt Hitler que le Front populaire “ (Lieber Hitler…).
10.Feb.2007 https://www.trend.infopartisan.net/trd0207/t230207.html

Verwerfungen innerhalb der französischen KP  

Aber in Frankreich verloren die Kommunisten damit schon Ende

00.000.1939  zahlreiche Anhänger, Sympathisanten wurden verprellt, Mitglieder gingen auf Distanz oder nabelten sich von der Parteiführung ab.

Deren Direktiven nicht mehr anzunehmen, wurde ihnen kurz darauf durch die Illegalisierung der Partei, deren Parlamentsabgeordnete –- so sich nicht distanziert hatten --

00.000.1940 -Anfang-in die Gefängnisse der Dritten Republik geworfen wurden, erleichtert.

Viele Parteikommunisten an der „Basis“ führten einfach einige Monate lang ihre eigene Politik durch,

so lange, bis sich die Parteilinie ab dem darauffolgenden Jahr wieder zugunsten einer Betonung des antifaschistischen Widerstands änderte. Nunmehr wandte sich die Partei geschlossen dem Aufbau der Résistance zu.

10.Feb.2007 https://www.cannonfire.blogspot.com/ Speaking of hate speech by bloggers connected to candidates, what about Free Republic participant and John McCain hireling Patrick Hynes? You should see what Media Matters has dug up on that guy.
10.Feb.2007 https://www.cannonfire.blogspot.com/ Much of the paranoia which now characterizes Fundamentalism traces to the sick, sick Tim LaHaye - recipient of Reverend Moon's funding + stalwart of the modern conservative movement.
10.Feb.2007 https://www.cannonfire.blogspot.com/ LaHaye was also one of "behind the scenes" figures involved with the creation of Fundamentalism's most notorious fake, Mike Warnke's The Satan Seller. That's the one which launched the whole Satan-gonna-getcher-kids meme which pseudo-Christians love so much.
10.Feb.2007 https://www.cannonfire.blogspot.com/ LaHaye was a key member of the John Birch Society in California. The JBS revived the ludicrous "Illuminati" conspiracy theory, previously the domain of such notorious anti-Semites as Gerald Winrod and William Guy Carr. In his books, lectures and other writings, LaHaye transported that canard into the "Christian" mainstream.
10.Feb.2007 https://www.cannonfire.blogspot.com/ He also has a problem with Jews, whom he has blamed for killing Jesus. A LaHaye quote: "Brilliant Jewish minds have all too frequently been devoted to philosophies that have proved harmful to mankind."
What kind of role does Timmy play in the conservative movement?
Check it out:
00.000.1981 LaHaye founded the Council for National Policy—claiming, at one time, some 600,000 members.

In the 1980 s, the CNP was quite the political/religious machine; spawning countless campaigns and organizations. Included among its members were Ed Meese, John Ashcroft, Pat Robertson and, of course Falwell—as well as key think tanks + activists like Grover Norquist and Oliver North. A lot of the "right-wing jihad" against President Clinton

in the 1990s was funded by CNP supporters like Texas oilman + silver manipulator, Nelson Bunker Hunt, Richard DeVos of Amway and beer magnate Joseph Coors (the same crowd that funded the contras in Central America).
00.Jun.1997 Impeaching Clinton was allegedly conceived by the CNP in Montreal.

Falwell touts the CNP for helping raise hundreds of millions for ventures like Liberty University (the second largest Evangelical Christian University in America—surpassed only by Baylor (Baptist) University in Waco, TX). President Bush attended a CNP meeting at the start of his 1999 presidential campaign + Rumsfeld took part in the group’s gathering last April in Washington, D.C. Republican political strategist, Paul Weyrich, once said: "Without [LaHaye], what we call the religious right would not have developed the way it did + as quickly as it did." (Emphasis added.) Also see here.
10.Feb.2007 https://www.cannonfire.blogspot.com/ How bigoted is LaHaye? Check it out: It came to light that LaHaye's church in San Diego throughout the 1970s had sponsored an anti-Catholic group called Mission to Catholics. One pamphlet produced by the group asserted that Pope Paul VI was the "archpriest of Satan, a deceiver + an antichrist, who has, like Judas, gone to his own place." I started watching LaHaye in the 1970s. I can assure you that his Pope-bashing at that time was of the most primeval and superstitious variety.

Ein Dauerbrenner dürfte insbesondere aber das Thema Russland werden. In den vergangenen Tagen heizten der russische Verteidigungsminister Sergej Iwanow sowie der US-Senator und republikanische Präsidentschaftsaspirant John McCain die Debatte um einen in Osteuropa stationierten amerikanischen Raketenabwehrschirm an. Beide haben sich auch für die Sicherheitskonferenz angekündigt. Iwanow sprach in der "Süddeutschen Zeitung" von einem "unfreundlichen Signal", dass Russland zu Gegenmaßnahmen zwinge. Inzwischen hat der Minister die Modernisierung des russischen Raketenarsenals angekündigt. Und McCain derweil spricht über den "imperialistischen Einfluss" der Russen auf ihre Nachbarn.

08 February 2007 Quantum computer to debut next week

By Peter Judge, Techworld

Twenty years before most scientists expected it, a commercial company has announceda quantum computer that promises to massively speed up searches and optimisation calculations.

D-Wave of British Columbia has promised to demonstrate a quantum computer next Tuesday, that can carry out 64,000 calculations simultaneously (in parallel "universes"), thanks to a new technique which rethinks the already-uncanny world of quantum computing. But the academic

who was asked to stop using Tor. University IT and campus security staffers came knocking on Paul Cesarini's door asking why he was using the anonymizing network. They requested that he stop and also that he not teach his students about it. The visitors said it was likely against university policy (a policy they probably were not aware that Cesarini had helped to draft). The professor seems genuinely to appreciate the problems that a campus IT department faces; but in the end he took a stand for academic freedom.
Indonesia Stops Sharing Avian Virus Samples - kdawson 200 - dankrabach writes

"Indonesia has apparently decided to play the IP game, with the world's health at stake. The country, one of the hardest-hit by avian flu, has stopped submitting virus samples to the World Health Organization + is negotiating to sell them to an American drug company that makes the vaccine. They feel slighted when they give away such samples, but then cannot afford the patented vaccines. Logical to me, given the rules of the game; however, can't we come up with some GPL'ish license to free any product based on this data?"
To Media Companies, BitTorrent Implies Guilt - kdawson 333 - kripkenstein writes

"The big media companies immediately assume you are guilty by your mere presence on a BitTorrent swarm, an investigation by a university security worker reveals. Turns out companies like BayTSP (which the media companies employ) will send shutdown notices to ISPs without any evidence of copyright infringment; all they feel they need is an indication that you are reported by the tracker to be in the swarm." From the post: "For my investigation, I wrote a very simple BitTorrent client. My client sent a request to the tracker + generally acted like a normal Bittorrent client up to sharing files. The client refused to accept downloads of, or upload copyrighted content. It obeyed the law... With just this, completely legal, BitTorrent client, I was able to get notices from BayTSP. To put this in to perspective, if BayTSP were trying to bust me for doing drugs, it'd be like getting arrested because I was hanging out with some dealers, but they never saw me using, buying, or selling any drugs."

Quantum Computer To Launch Next Week - kdawson 191 - judgecorp writes

"D-Wave Systems of British Columbia is all set to demonstrate a 16-qubit quantum computer. Simple devices have been built in the lab before + this is still a prototype, but it is a commercial project that aims to get quantum devices into computer rooms, solving tricky problems such as financial optimization. Most quantum computers have to be isolated from the outside world (look at them and they stop working). This one is an 'adiabatic' quantum computer — which means (in theory, says D-Wave) that it can live with thermal noise and give results without having to be isolated. There's a description of it here — and pretty pictures too."
Senate Introduces Strong Privacy Bill - samzenpus 133+ - amigoro writes

"US Senators introduced a bill that better protects the privacy of citizens' personal information in the face of data security breaches across the country.

DNA-rainbow, A New Vision of Human Chromosomes - samzenpus 144+ - An anonymous reader writes

"Two scientists have rendered amazing pictures using datafiles from the human genome project.

It might be a groundbreaking new idea for displaying and maybe better understanding our genes. With it's fascinating pictures it is a beautiful mix of science and art."
Woman Wins Right to Criticize Surgeon on Website - samzenpus 224+ - Scoopy writes

"The website of a cosmetic surgery patient critical of her Sacramento surgeon's work is protected free speech, an appeals court said in an opinion that could have statewide implications. The website contains before and after photographs of 33-year-old Georgette Gilbert, who said the surgery left her with one eyebrow higher than the other and a surprised look permanently affixed to her face. The website was challenged in a defamation suit filed by surgeon Jonathan Sykes, a prominent professor and television commentator on the subject of cosmetic surgery. Although the Sacramento-based 3rd District Court of Appeal only mentions Sykes, the opinion suggests that others who use 'hot topics' of public interest in their advertisements and promotions may shed protections against defamation afforded to ordinary citizens."

Zur 43. Internationalen Sicherheitskonferenz werden Spitzenpolitiker und -militärs aus rund 40 Ländern erwartet, darunter Russlands Präsident Wladimir Putin, der neue US-Verteidigungsminister Robert Gates und Nato-Generalsekretär Jaap de Hoop Scheffer.
Zur Kritik, dass keine Mitglieder der Linksfraktion eingeladen wurden, sagte Teltschik, die Sicherheitskonferenz sei eine "private" Veranstaltung.
08.Feb.2007 https://www.spiegel.de/politik/deutschland/0,1518,druck-465296,00.html
Teltschik versuchte heute in München, die Wogen zu glätten:

Er sei missverstanden worden. Er räumte aber auch ein: "Das war ein Fehler, dass ich mich missverständlich ausgedrückt habe."

Teltschik hatte gestern in einem Rundfunkinterview auf die Frage geantwortet, ob ihn die Proteste gegen die Sicherheitskonferenz stören:

"Es ist die Tragik jeder Demokratie, dass bei uns jeder seine Meinung öffentlich vertreten kann und dass man politisch Verantwortliche in einer Demokratie schützen muss.

In Diktaturen würde so etwas nicht passieren."

"Künstliche Aufregung"

Heute nun erklärte der frühere Sicherheitsberater von Ex- Bundeskanzler Helmut Kohl, dass er nicht gegen die Meinungsfreiheit sei.

Vielmehr habe er sagen wollen, dass es "grotesk" sei, dass demokratisch gewählte Politiker und eine Veranstaltung wie die Sicherheitskonferenz von einem Großaufgebot an Polizei geschützt werden müssten.

Er halte die Aufregung um das Interview für "etwas künstlich".

Die Organisatoren der Protestdemonstration am Samstag rechnen mit 5000 Teilnehmern.

Rund 3500 Polizisten - und damit deutlich weniger als im Vorjahr - sollen für Ordnung sorgen. Die Proteste richten sich gegen "Kriegseinsatzplanungen der Nato".

Die iranische Regierung hat eigenen Angaben zufolge ein amerikanisch-israelisches Spionagenetzwerk aufgespürt. Der für die Geheimdienste zuständige Minister Gholam Hossein Mohseni Edschehi gab heute zugleich die Festnahme einer Gruppe von Iranern bekannt, die ins Ausland habe reisen wollen, um sich dort als Spione ausbilden zu lassen. Ob auch Mitglieder des angeblichen Spionagenetzwerks inhaftiert wurden, sagte der Minister nicht. Er deutete jedoch an, dass die Gruppe überwacht werde. Es handele sich um Agenten der CIA und des israelischen Geheimdienstes Mossad, sagte der Minister. Das Netzwerk sei an der iranischen Grenze aktiv gewesen.

Angst vor dem Kollaps der Goldgräber-Gesellschaft

Eine solche Konzession ist im wahrsten Sinn des Wortes Gold wert. Denn die Regierung hat sich entschlossen, die Mine am Juma zu "legalisieren", um der totalen Anarchie vorzubeugen. Sie hat jetzt 88 Polizisten, Gesundheitsexperten und Ärzte nach "Eldorado de Juma" entsandt. Sie sollen Ruhe und Ordnung bringen und dem Ausbruch von Seuchen vorbeugen. Die Goldsucher sollen sich zu einer Kooperative zusammenschließen und ihre Claims registrieren lassen.

So will die Regierung dem Raubbau an der Natur Einhalt gebieten und gewalttätige Fehden unter den Goldsuchern vermeiden. Der Umweltschaden ist schon jetzt beträchtlich: Mehr als 40 Quadratkilometer Urwald haben die Garimpeiros abgeholzt. Sie schlagen immer neue Pisten in die Vegetation. Das Quecksilber, mit dem sie das Gold vom Erz trennen, verseucht die Flüsse in der Umgebung. Die Schießereien und Morde haben zugenommen, der Kollaps der Goldgräber-Gesellschaft scheint programmiert.

Comments: For whatever it's worth, there's also this, from October 1997, involving the same river system, only on the Argentine side of the border:
The first privately financed mega-dam in Latin America is planned for the middle Paraná River in Argentina. The Paraná Medio Dam would be the thirteenth largest dam in the world + would create the world's second largest reservoir, turning a rich wetlands ecosystem into a massive shallow inland sea of stagnant water and rotting vegetation. First proposed by a team of Soviet engineers in the 1970s, including those who supervised the construction of the Aswan Dam in Egypt, the proposal was revived in March 1996 by a consortium of U.S. companies called Energy Developers International (EDI). Now, determined local opposition and a new provincial law declaring the Paraná River a "dam-free zone" may mean rough water ahead for the Paraná Medio dam project. . . .
Energy Developers International (EDI) is based in Metairie, Louisiana. The consortium partners are New Orleans-based Avondale Industries, which would construct prefabricated steel modules for the plant; Houston-based Brown and Root, which would build roads, bridges, levees and infrastructure for the dam; and Baton Rouge-based Forte and Tablade, an engineering firm which would provide engineering design and project coordination.
To secure the Argentine government's support for the project, the consortium has employed high-level officials of the Bush administration, according to Argentine press reports. Among the consortium's lobbyists: former Treasury Secretary Nicholas Brady, now chair of Dillon Read, which would coordinate financing for the project; former Defense Secretary Richard Cheney, chair of the board of Halliburton, Brown and Root's parent company; and the ex-president's son, Texas Governor George Bush, Jr.
The consortium's political connections are more impressive than its construction qualifications. There are serious questions about Avondale's capacity and qualifications to construct the enormous Paraná Medio Dam. As a guarantee of the consortium's ability to carry out the project, an EDI brochure states that "the government of the United States will guarantee Avondale's investment since it is a Navy contractor which is transferring its technology to civil use." U.S. House of Representative Armed Service Committee officials say that no such guarantees exist.

"Durch das nachhaltige Wachstum am Biomarkt und die Öffnung der Umstellungsförderung in 2007 bieten sich für Landwirte neue Chancen und eine langfristige Perspektive in diesem Zukunftsmarkt", sagte der Präsident von Bioland Deutschland, Thomas Dosch. Nach Angaben des Verbandes fördern in diesem Jahr alle Bundesländer außer dem Saarland Landwirte, die sich für eine Umstellung der Anbauweise entschließen.

Der Westen verdächtigt die Islamische Republik, unter dem Deckmantel der Stromerzeugung an der Entwicklung von Atomwaffen zu arbeiten. Iran hat die Vorwürfe zurückgewiesen und Forderungen nach einem Ende der Anreicherung von Uran abgelehnt.
Das Tor-M1-System basiere auf dem Prinzip der Abschreckung, sagte Hossein Salami, der Kommandeur der Revolutionswächter ist.

Teheran - Die neuen Raketen vom Typ Tor-M1 aus Russland seien erfolgreich getestet worden, gab General Hossein Salami heute bekannt. Damit könnten nun alle Kriegsschiffe im Golf unter Beschuss genommen werden, weil sie in Reichweite der neuen Waffen lägen. Das iranische Staatsfernsehen zeigte Bilder von mehreren Raketen, die in der Wüste von mobilen Abschussrampen aus in den Himmel geschossen wurden. Experten bezweifeln allerdings, dass die Raketen tatsächliche Schiffe im Golf erreichen könnten. Denn sie sind laut "Military Analysis Network" mit einer Reichweite von bis zu zwölf Kilometern klassifiziert.

Fünf weitere Männer seien durch das Geschoss -vermutlich ein Meteorit - verletzt worden.

Neu Delhi - Bei dem Objekt habe es sich wahrscheinlich um einen Meteoriten gehandelt, berichtet die Nachrichtenagentur "Press Trust of India" unter Berufung auf die Polizei.

"Eine neue Sicht auf die Erde, ein bezwingender Anblick", schrieb der "New Scientist" und fühlte sich an das berühmte Foto erinnert, das die Astronauten der "Apollo"-Missionen vom Erdaufgang über dem Mond aufnahmen.

Mittlerweile haben Dorling und seine Mitstreiter auf Worldmapper.org über 250 dieser neuen Bilder der Erde veröffentlicht.
Auf ihrer Website Worldmapper.org tragen Dorling und sein Team seitdem Landkarten zusammen, die nach derselben Mechanik Länderstatistiken darstellen: Wo am meisten Forschungsgelder ausgegeben werden, wo die Menschen am ältesten werden oder wo die meisten Krankenhausbetten stehen.
08.Feb.2007 https://www.spiegel.de/wissenschaft/mensch/0,1518,druck-464569,00.html

In der Online-Fachzeitschrift "Public Library of Sciences" (PLoS) stellt Dorling verzerrte Weltkarten als Mittel vor, abstrakte Zahlen - etwa über Malariatote, HIV-Infizierte, Gesundheitsausgaben oder Sturm-Todesopfer - konkret darzustellen. Das Auge sei viel besser darin, relative Werte von Objekten entsprechend ihrer Größe zu beurteilen als etwa anhand von Farbe oder Musterung, schreibt Dorling in "PLoS". Der Forscher nennt die Mischung aus Weltkarte und Diagramm auch "Kartogramm".

Nun ist Hau und ihren Kollegen der nächste Coup geglückt: Sie haben einen Laserstrahl in einem Bose-Einstein-Kondensat verschwinden und anschließend aus einem zweiten, einen zehntel Millimeter davon entfernten Kondensat wieder austreten lassen. Das Licht wurde also gespeichert, gebeamt und wieder abgerufen.

Die Ausbreitung des Magenbakteriums und die des modernen Menschen verliefen parallel zueinander, schreiben die Forscher im Wissenschaftsmagazin "Nature". Achtman geht deshalb davon aus, dass bereits die ersten modernen Menschen mit dem Bakterium im Bauch lebten.

Wege von Helicobacter pylori: Mit zunehmender Entfernung zu Ostafrika nimmt die genetische Vielfalt ab In den genetischen Unterschieden der Helicobacter-pylori-Stämme spiegeln sich auch kleinräumigere Wanderbewegungen wider, wie etwa jene der jungsteinzeitlichen Kulturen in Europa. Die neuen Erkenntnisse zur Ausbreitung des Magenbakteriums könnten daher helfen, weniger bekannte Wanderbewegungen der Menschen besser zu verstehen.

08.Feb.2007 ISP Tracking Legislation Hits the House - ScuttleMonkey 211 Comments cnet-declan writes

"CNET News.com reports that Republicans in the U.S. House of Representatives announced yesterday legislation to force ISPs to keep track of what their users are doing. It's part of the Republicans 'law and order agenda,' with other components devoted to the death penalty, gangs + terrorists. Attorney General Gonzales would be permitted to force Internet providers to keep logs of Web browsing, instant message exchanges + e-mail conversations indefinitely. The draft bill is available online + it also includes mandatory Web labeling for sexually explicit pages. The idea enjoys bipartisan support: a Colorado Democrat has been the most ardent supporter in the entire Congress."

"Cryptography expert Bruce Schneier says security decisions often are much less rational than one would prefer. He spoke at the RSA conference about the battle that goes on in the brain when responding to security issues. Schneier explains 'The primitive portion of the brain, called the amygdala, feels fear and incites a fear-or-flight response, he pointed out. "It's very fast, faster than consciousness. But it can be overridden by higher parts of the brain." The neocortex, which in a mammalian brain is associated with consciousness, is slower but "adaptive and flexible,"'"

During the Cold War, the two super powers realized that there was no logic in engaging militarily given that each had the benefit of resorting to nuclear weapons, thus, with the exception of a few proxy wars, their ‘war’ became a war of propaganda to win over minds and hearts. Today, the Bush White House is following the same pattern of warfare replacing communism with Islam. However, much like everything else this administration embarks on, the disastrous consequences of this war have not been deliberated.
