Is Europe Coming Apart Faster Than Anticipated?

The sky is black with PIIGS coming home to roost: I was going to write my customary long and boring think piece—but the simmering crisis in the Eurozone just got the heat turned up: Things are boiling over there!

So let’s take a break from our regularly scheduled programming, and give you a run-down of this late-breaking news:

The bond markets have no faith in Ireland—Greece has been shown up as having lied again about its atrocious fiscal situation—and now Portugal is teetering—

—in other words, the PIIGS are screwed. I would venture to guess that we are about to see this slow-boiling European crisis bubble over into a full blown meltdown over the next few days—and it’s going to get messy.

The horrible truth starts to dawn on Europe's leaders

The entire European Project is now at risk of disintegration, with strategic and economic consequences that are very hard to predict.

In a speech this morning, EU President Herman Van Rompuy (poet, and writer of Japanese and Latin verse) warned that if Europe’s leaders mishandle the current crisis and allow the eurozone to break up, they will destroy the European Union itself.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Good.

EU says survival at risk as ministers face Irish crisis

The European Union raised the stakes over the Irish debt crisis on Tuesday, saying the future of the eurozone and EU are at risk as ministers head for talks on an increasingly probable rescue.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

"Probable Rescue" = Sink the European pe3ople further into debt-slavery!

The central bank system is designed to fail. It is, as I have said before, a boat with ten holes and only five corks, and the only thing the leaders of the nations enslaved by such a system can do is yank a cork from one hole and pound it into another in front of the press cameras while proclaiming they are doing something about the problem.

This is not rocket science, and I wonder why the people of the world cannot see the simplicity of the trap or the ease of the final solution.

IMF – International Monetary Fraudsters! The Banksters Are Going To Rape Our Country – Because We’re Asking For It!

Ask any ordinary person in the Third World after these gangsters have moved in and crippled them with debt if they think the IMF is a good thing and I think you’ll find an overwhelming majority, discounting the corrupt despots running these countries, who have seen their natural resources raped by international corporations, who have looted and pillaged every country they’ve gone into at the IMF’s behest for their international banker criminal cartel, you’ll find a resounding rejection of any such notion.

Euro under siege after Portugal hits panic button

The euro is facing an unprecedented crisis after another country indicated that it was at a “high risk” of requiring an international bail-out.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

A bailout simply means more debt, followed by "Austerity measures", meaning the starvation of the people to feed the bankers.

The global economy is a boat with ten holes in the bottom and only 5 corks, and all the world's leaders can do is yank out a cork and pound it into a different hole in front of the press cameras and insist they are doing something about the problem!

GORDON DUFF: DEAR GERALDO RIVERA, 9/11 MURDER IS NOT A JOKE

BUILDINGWHAT.ORG IS ABOUT HONOR AND JUSTICE

This week, Geraldo Rivera was foiled in his attempt to “contain” the 9/11 movement, something exploding around the world. A Herald Sun poll in Australia the week before, 10,000 respondents, showed 78% support for 9/11 being an “inside job.” A reasonable estimate for Americans is likely to approach the same figure.

Fox News now “owns” 9/11 as much as they own Glen Beck. First, Judge Napolitano “outed” the phony investigation now Geraldo Rivera has taken a strong stand on the (www.buildingwhat.org) Building 7 demolition issue. If you put both shows together, they lead to the most frightening coverup in modern history and a clear evidentiary trail, one Fox News has exposed. Why, then, is the door opened and then closed again?

Growing signs of renewed debt crisis in Europe

There are growing signs of a renewed debt crisis in a number of European nations, as bond yields soar to record highs and the continent’s economic growth stagnates.

The heads of leading European countries took the exceptional step of using the Group of 20 meeting in Seoul to announce that the European Union had confidence in the measures undertaken by Irish leaders to address the nation’s budget deficit. At the same time, the leaders of Germany, France, Italy and the United Kingdom issued a statement declaring that the EU had no plans for an additional bailout of European nations until at least 2013.

‘ROAD TO HOPE’ CONVOY TO GAZA MEMBERS KIDNAPPED

Greek Commandos board Strofades IV in Greek Waters

The Road to Hope humanitarian aid convoy left London on the 10th of October with £500,000 of medical aid for the besieged people of the Gaza Strip. After travelling 4,500 miles through the UK, France, Spain, Morocco, Algeria, Tunisia and Libya the convoy stalled at the Egyptian border on October 26th due to an Egyptian refusal to allow land access to Gaza. As a result the convoy leaders had little choice but to secure a ship at significant extra expense and delay.

Obama is president of extra-judicial killing, says ex-Guantánamo inmate

US PRESIDENT Barack Obama’s attempts to reach out to Muslims have been an "utter failure" given his broken promises on several issues including closing Guantánamo Bay detention facility, former inmate Moazzam Begg has said.

Begg, whose organisation, Cageprisoners, recently expanded its work to include the highlighting of extra-judicial killings, particularly the use of drone strikes, argued little had changed despite Obama’s promises. "We say that Bush was the president of torture, but Obama is the president of extra-judicial killing.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The issue of US extrajudicial assassination, now being heard by the US Supreme Court, puts the entire American concept of judicial due process at extreme risk.

If the Supreme Court sides with the administration, it will then be open season on anyone who even has the most peaceful, mildest (and logical) disagreements with the policies of this, or any subsequent, administration.

I absolutely abhor what Anwar al-Awlaki has allegedly said.

But at the same moment, I do have the faith that it is still possible that the US judicial process, fairly applied, can provide justice, even for a person like Awlaki.

This country is either a country of laws, or a country of people: it cannot be both.

WESTERN MEDIA FRIGHTENED OF THE ‘F’ WORD IN ITS ISRAELI CONTEXT

By Alan Hart — My Catbird Seat

There is a debate in Israel about whether the Zionist state is on the slippery slope to fascism or is already fascist. As far as I am aware the mainstream Western media has not drawn any attention to this:

It was Albert Einstein, the father of modern physics, who, along with 27 other most influential Jews, first warned of the danger of the rise of fascism in Israel. In a letter to the Editor of The New York Times published on 4 December 1948, when Menachem Begin was soliciting support in America, they said this:

LETTER TO THE BRITISH LIBERAL DEMOCRATS - STUART LITTLEWOOD

He directly violates international law by living in one of Israel’s illegal settlements. “If you liked Mussolini, if you were missing Stalin, you’ll love Lieberman,” a member of Israel’s Meretz party observed.

ZIONISM: The Need For Israeli Jews To Feel Frightened –ALAN HART

BY KOUROSH ZIABARI

Kourosh Ziabari: In your recent article “Zionism and Peace are Incompatible” you reach a point where you state “if it is the case that American presidents are frightened of provoking Israel, the conclusion would have to be that the Zionist state is a monster beyond control and that all efforts for peace are doomed to failure.” Is it really the case that Israel possesses an uncontrollable, disproportionate power which enables it to violate the international law and enjoy immunity from being held accountable before the international community? What’s the source of this unwarrantable power and influence?

Alan Hart: Let’s start with Reality Number One.

German people in unprecedented rebellion against government

Like the Roman legions vanquished in the Teutoburger Wald in Lower Saxony in 9 AD, the 17,000 police officers that marched into the woods around the nuclear storage facility in Gorleben in northern Germany on Sunday morning looked invincible. Police personnel from France, Croatia and Poland had joined in the biggest security operation ever mounted against protestors against the a train carrying nuclear waste to a depot in an isolated part of Lower Saxony’s countryside. Helicopters, water canons and police vehicles, including an armoured surveillance truck, accompanied an endless column of anti-riot police mounted on horses and also marching down the railway tracks into the dense woods.

Israel implicated in US spy scandal in Sweden.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Not only the U.S. spies on people in Sweden, Israel with the help of the Swedish National Security Police and the police in Stockholm spy on people in Sweden as well.

This may be illegal for the Security and Stockholm police to take part in as well as being illegal for Israel to carry out in Sweden at least. The Security Police spokesperson claims not to have known about it.

U-turn on smoking ban as Holland ALLOWS lighting up in 2000 bars and pubs

Smokers in the Netherlands will now be able to light-up again in over 2000 of the country's small owner-operated bars or pubs.

The partial over-turning of the blanket ban, which was introduced in 2008, is a huge victory for for smokers' rights campaigners who had argued that the blanket ban was driving small bar owners out of business.

An incoming coalition government in the country has allowed the partial lifting of the ban for pubs which are less than 743.5 sq ft in size and which are staffed solely by the owner.

CIA lawyer: U.S. law does not forbid rendition

Daniel Pines, an assistant general counsel at the CIA, has asserted in a law journal that the abduction of terrorism suspects abroad is legal under U.S. law, even when the suspect is turned over to countries notorious for torture.

“There are virtually no legal restrictions on these types of operations,” Pines asserts in the current edition of the Loyola University Chicago Law Journal.

“Indeed, U.S. law does not even preclude the United States from rendering individuals to a third country in instances where the third country may subject the rendered individual to torture. The only restrictions that do exist under U.S. law preclude U.S. officials from themselves torturing or inflicting cruel and unusual punishment on individuals during rendition operations, or rendering individuals from a place of actual armed conflict or occupation -- all of which prove to be narrow limitations indeed,” Pines writes.

UNANSWERED QUESTIONS IN THE YEMEN TERROR SCARE

By Barry Grey (Source: Global Research)

In what has become a regular feature of American public life—especially on the eve of major elections—the airwaves were taken over Friday by breathless reports of a new terror threat. It is impossible to determine how much is fact and how much is fiction in the ever-expanding claims being made regarding two packages from Yemen allegedly containing high explosives and addressed to two synagogues in Chicago.

But the very fact that the decision was made, undoubtedly at a very high level, to give such massive media coverage to the alleged plot—before any concrete details were being reported and entirely on the basis of unsubstantiated claims made by, for the most part, anonymous officials—is sufficient reason to adopt a highly skeptical attitude.

IS RUPERT MURDOCH IGNORANT OR AN AGENT OF ZIONIST DECEPTION ?

By Alan Hart — My Catbird Seat

It is true that in the eyes of many if not most peoples of the world (and probably many of their governments behind closed doors) Israel is increasingly being seen as a pariah state. But that’s a consequence of Israel’s policies and actions, war crimes and all.

In a recent speech at an ADL (Anti-Defamation League) dinner, Rupert Murdoch, arguably the most influential mainstream media chief on Planet Earth, made some extraordinary statements which must be challenged. But first it’s necessary for us all to be clear about what ADL’s role is.

Chancellor Angela Merkel has declared the death of multiculturalism in Germany, saying that it had "failed utterly" , in what has been interpreted as a startling shift from her previous views. The German leader said it had been an illusion to think that Germans and foreign workers could "live happily side by side".

"We kidded ourselves for a while that they wouldn't stay, but that's not the reality," she said at a conference of the youth wing of her Christian Democratic Union party at the weekend, referring to the gastarbeiters, or guest workers, who arrived in Germany to fill a labour shortage during the economic boom of the 1960s.

Travel Alert Update: State Department Reiterates European Travel Warnings

The U.S. Department of State is upholding a travel alert placed over Europe earlier this month, said a counterterrorism coordinator on Thursday.

According to U.S. counterterrorism coordinator Daniel Benjamin, the Mumbai-style terror plot aimed at several European cities is still in play and enough of a possibility not to rescind the alert.

American travelers and expatriates were advised by the State Department to keep a low profile and to take general safety precautions. The State Department did not, however, issue a formal warning to Americans not to travel to Europe.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

It appears that the US State Department has morphed into the US Department of Fearmongering, and instead of preventing terrorism through logical, far-sighted planning, is practicing "scareorrism" to attempt to keep the American people in a perpetual state of panic.

Panic keeps people from thinking clearly and rationally.

The first and foremost thing the US could do to prevent any kind of action like this taking place against American targets, at home or abroad, would be to stop mucking about in other people's countries, like Iraq, Afghanistan, Yemen, Pakistan, and (probably soon) Iran.

Of course, that would be logical.

The European Union, 27 member nations with a half billion people, has become the largest, wealthiest trading bloc in the world, producing nearly a third of the world's economy -- nearly as large as the US and China combined.

WRAPUP 4-Fuel to Paris reduced as French protests escalate

PARIS, Oct 15 (Reuters) - Striking French oil refinery workers shut down a fuel pipeline supplying Paris and its airports on Friday and airport workers grounded some flights as protests mounted to derail an unpopular pension reform.

France's airport operator played down worries of fuel shortages, but strikes at all of the country's 12 refineries and fuel depot blockades prompted motorists to stock up on petrol.

Truck drivers also were set to join the fray as momentum built for a day of street rallies on Saturday.

The widening protests have become the biggest challenge facing President Nicolas Sarkozy, who is struggling with low popularity ratings as he tries to appease financial markets by stemming a ballooning pension shortfall.

Our Geert (Wilders) has utterly crazy friends.

His answer was: "there are more anti-semitic passages in the Quran than in that book".

Well, he must have thought, who in the world would go and check that? The court doesnt have Mein Kampf at hand. Everybody who does, and also a Quran (like me) knows this is complete nonsense. I refer Jansen to chapters 3 and 9 in volume 1, and the chapters 2 and 5 in volume 2. And the rest of it, all through de book.

End of the Blue Danube? Ecological catastrophe looms as toxic sludge flows towards river

A state of emergency has been declared in the Hungarian region submerged by toxic sludge because the chemical flood is threatening water supplies by rushing towards the Danube River.

The lethal tidal wave of poisonous red mud burst from a reservoir of toxic waste belonging to an alumina plant in the town of Ajka and flooded a 16-square mile area.

At least four people were killed, 120 were treated for serious chemical burns and six remain missing after the tsunami of poison surged through several towns around 100 miles southwest of Budapest.

Uncle Sam Wants Your DNA: Privacy a price to pay for travel ticket?

Anger is growing in Europe about new Washington data sharing demands, in what they call a move to stop potential terrorists from entering the U.S. The requirements include fingerprints, DNA samples and cross border payments - data considered by many as private and sensitive. Travellers from countries refusing to share the information will have to apply for a visa to enter the U.S. However some EU states - like Austria and Germany - have already agreed to hand over the personal data of its citizens.

Washington´s Fear Campaign: US Issues Terror Alert for European Cities

The US State Department issued a terror alert Sunday for American citizens traveling anywhere in the continent of Europe, an unprecedented action that seems calculated to spread alarm without actually helping anyone avoid becoming the target of a terrorist attack. The Pentagon imposed a weekend curfew on troops at the US Air Force Base at Ramstein, Germany, ordering soldiers not to wear their uniforms off base “in response to a threat condition.”

Britain, Japan, Sweden and Canada all followed suit, issuing alerts to their own citizens who might be traveling to Europe. In each case, they cited the US alert as evidence that there was an increased danger of a terrorist attack at European transit hubs and tourist attractions.

Is AP deliberately fear-mongering Europe terror threat to sell body scanners?

Activist Post

It appears that the Associated Press is fear-mongering about recently heightened terror threats in Europe. They have turned one vague State Department warning into multiple headline stories, making it appear as though a terror threat is imminent. But the original report provides very flimsy information about a nonspecific threat apparently obtained from, "a Pakistani intelligence official said (that) eight Germans and two British brothers were at the heart of an al-Qaida-linked terror plot against European cities, but the plan was still in its early stages."

Europol Report: All Terrorists are Muslims…Except the 99.6% that Aren’t

The results are stark, and prove decisively that not all terrorists are Muslims. In fact, a whopping 99.6% of terrorist attacks in Europe were by non-Muslim groups; a good 84.8% of attacks were from separatist groups completely unrelated to Islam. Leftist groups accounted for over sixteen times as much terrorism as radical Islamic groups. Only a measly 0.4% of terrorist attacks from 2007 to 2009 could be attributed to extremist Muslims.

The Altars of Fear: Wrong Turns on a Long, Dark Road

All across Europe, thousands of people have been taking to the streets in angry protests against the "austerity measures" being imposed upon them by their governments. A general strike in Spain. Mass protests in Greece, Ireland, Portugal, France, Lithuania, Belgium and several other nations. Legislators in Iceland had to literally run and hide from their own citizens at the opening of the nation’s parliament this week.

Why, ask the outraged crowds, should our lives be degraded in order to pay for the crimes and follies of the financial elite –- who are richer, more powerful and more arrogant than ever today, despite having plunged the world into economic catastrophe?

It was very sad that Quran was burnt: Craig Blomberg

US may issue warning on public places in Europe

The Associated Press has learned the Obama administration is considering a broad warning for U.S. citizens to avoid public places in Europe due to new al-Qaida threats.

Such a move could have significant implications for European tourism.

U.S. officials told the AP on Saturday that the State Department may issue a travel warning as early as Sunday advising Americans to stay away from European tourist sites, transportation hubs and other facilities because of new threat information.

First World War officially ends on Sunday

The First World War will officially end on Sunday when Germany pays off the last of the enormous debt which was set by the Allies 92 years ago.

Gaby Leslie --Yahoo News UK

The final £60 million instalment is part of a £22 billion debt imposed for starting one of the bloodiest conflicts in history will be cleared on what will also be the 20th anniversary of German reunification.

The Allied victors - primarily Britain, France and America set the reparations in 1919's Treaty of Versailles - a peace agreement - as both compensation and punishment for waging the four year war, which left 10 million soldiers dead, and European towns and cities devastated.
