Doesn’t thinking about the dead kids in Yemen get you mad?

Crocodile tears: Commander in hypocrisy!


Commander in Arms Sales to War Criminals and Child Killers

Mr Obama targets gun sales to criminals in the U.S., but not to the psychopaths and child-killers in Saudi Arabia?

“… there’s been a humanitarian catastrophe of the highest order [in Yemen.] They’ve been bombing markets, hospitals, refugee camps—more than 2,000 civilian casualties, most of them from the Saudi bombing. Basically, the Saudis, many believe, are engaging in war crimes in Yemen. And the U.S. logistical and arms support is facilitating that,” said William Hartung, author of Prophets of War: Lockheed Martin and the Making of the Military-Industrial Complex.

Under the Obama administration, the United States has entered a record $50 billion in new arms sales agreements with the Saudis.

“…throughout the Obama administration, we’ve seen $50 billion in new arms sales agreements with the Saudis, which is a record for any kind of period like that. And so, they’re all in behind the Saudi military. They’re providing logistical support, bombs, refueling for the war in Yemen, U.S. companies training the Saudi National Guard, which is their internal security force. We’ve trained 10,000 Saudi military personnel in the last 10 years—five years, rather. So, you know, my belief is if the Obama administration wants to show displeasure with this execution, try to bring an end to the war in Yemen and so forth, there’s got to be a distancing from Saudi Arabia, beginning with cutting off some of these arms supplies,” said Hartung.

The US government is spending $255 billion annually to defend Saudi Arabia and other tyrannical monarchies in the Persian Gulf region, says a Saudi scholar in Washington.

“The United States has been spending $255 billion a year since the 1970s, an average of $255 billion a year to protect the [Persian] Gulf monarchies, especially Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, Qatar and Bahrain,” said Ali al-Ahmed, a critic of the Saudi monarchy.

“This amount of money makes up 40 percent of the annual American defense budget and it’s greater than the combined budgets of the states of California and Florida,” said al-Ahmed, the founder and director of the Institute for [Persian] Gulf Affairs, an independent think tank in Washington, DC.

“I think it’s really a way for America and the American people to stand against their government policy of supporting the tyrannical and absolute monarchies in the [Persian] Gulf countries,” he added.

Under the Obama administration, the United States has entered a record $50 billion in new arms sales agreements with the Saudis.

North Korea Announces ‘Successful’ H-Bomb Test

North Korea says it has successfully tested a hydrogen bomb, as earthquake monitoring centers reported a magnitude 5.1 earthquake near the main nuclear test site in Punggye-ri.

“The republic’s first hydrogen bomb test has been successfully performed at 10:00 am on January 6, 2016,” said the North Korean state TV.

16,000 Houses in England were flooded

About 16,000 houses in England were flooded during the wettest December on record, with entire communities swamped by rising waters, the UK Environment Secretary has said.

The numbers were not available for Scotland and Wales, as of posting.

December was wettest month for UK

December was the wettest month of any calendar month for the UK since  records began in 1910, according to data provided by the UK Met Office. Overall, 2015 was the sixth wettest year on record.

It was also the warmest December in 115 years, with  temperatures hovering around 7.9C (46F), typical for April or May, with the mean temperatures rising about 4C (7.2F) above the long-term average.

Scotland, Wales and the north west of England received record rain.

The head of the arboretum at Kew Gardens (SW London, UK) said the jumbling of seasons was causing problems in the natural world.

“The plants are really mixed up, they don’t know what season they’re in. They think spring is on the way, and they need to flower and grow leaves to make food.

“The seasons are normally quite short so they do it as soon as time allows.

“The downside is is that we could get a frost, and all these young leaves are very tender and not used to temperatures below freezing, and they won’t flower again in spring.

“And it’s a food source for insects that won’t be around when insects need it.”

Michigan Finally Declares a State of Emergency

Gov. Snyder has finally declared a state of emergency for Flint and Genesee County due to the contaminated drinking water crisis.

Meanwhile, the U.S. Attorney’s Office has confirmed it is investigating the contamination of drinking water supply in Flint.

The governor made the declaration “due to the ongoing health and safety issues caused by lead in the city of Flint’s drinking water,” said Snyder’s office in a news release.

“Genesee County declared an emergency on Monday and asked the state to do the same. The City of Flint has been under an emergency declaration since Dec. 14,” said a report.

North Korea Announces ‘Successful’ H-Bomb Test

Posted by feww on January 6, 2016

“[North Korea] deserved to hold nuclear weapons to counter nuclear threats by the US” —State media

North Korea says it has successfully tested a hydrogen bomb, as earthquake monitoring centers reported a significant seismic event near the main nuclear test site in Punggye-ri.

“The republic’s first hydrogen bomb test has been successfully performed at 10:00 am on January 6, 2016,” said the North Korean state TV.

A powerful weapon, developed in the 1950s by the United States, the hydrogen bomb, aka thermonuclear bomb, uses the nuclear fusion of hydrogen isotopes in a chain reaction to deliver a more devastating payload than the atomic bomb, which is powered by nuclear fission.

The H-bomb is said to be a “cleaner” bomb than its atomic cousin because it has less radioactive fallout, but delivers more bang for the buck.
