Paul Craig Roberts: Threatening Iran when Hitler attacked Russia, he did not preface his invasion with endless threats and a public case that blamed the war on England.

By the time the attack occurs, it will be old hat, an expected event, and, moreover, an event justified by years of propaganda asserting Iran’s perfidy.

Israel intends to dominate the Middle East. Israel’s goal is to incorporate all of Palestine and southern Lebanon into “Greater Israel.” The US intends to dominate the entire world, deciding who rules which countries and controlling resource flows.

The world is so impotent that even the bankrupt US can launch a new war of aggression and have it accepted as a glorious act of liberation in behalf of women’s rights, peace, and democracy. --- I disagree. I am not convinced that the attack will happen and if it does it will not succeed in doing anything but to destroy America.

Former head of CDC lands lucrative job as president of Merck vaccine division That means the former head of the CDC was very likely cultivating a relationship with Merck all these years, and now comes the big payoff: Heading up a $5 billion division that sells cervical cancer vaccines (like Gardasil), chickenpox vaccines and of course H1N1 swine flu vaccines, too.

The Baltic Dry Index Is Collapsing This explains why China said there is no money to buy new US Treasuries. 1) The Chinese are buying commodities. 2) As trade collapses and China buys commodities, Obama will have no one but Ben Bernanke to sell his debts to.

Chicago's Thick Blue Wall The Windy City's notoriously aggressive police department fights for less accountability The artist was confronted by Chicago police and arrested on December 3. Because he recorded the entire incident, on the understandable assumption that the reasons the officers gave for arresting him may prove useful to his follow-up lawsuit, Drew was also charged with "felony eavesdropping."

Senate sets Christmas eve vote on U.S. debt limit The U.S. Senate on Tuesday set a Christmas Eve vote on final congressional approval of a bill to provide a two-month increase in the federal debt limit.
The measure, passed last week by the House of Representatives, would increase the debt limit, now at $12.1 trillion, by $290 billion.

I think they only want a 290 billion dollar debt limit increase because the previous proposal of a 1.9 trillion dollar increase would be insufficient to last until November 2010. We will face another debt Bailout crisis in January after the Goldman Sachs bonuses are paid. The 2010 total deficit will be over 2 trillion dollars provided you count the off budget items.

The attacker followed her onto the fire escape, but once again his drooping pants fell and he tripped, plunging three stories to his death.

Punishing Al Manar, Al Aqsa: Another Proof of US Democracy! As a matter of fact, the American democracy doesn’t find it strange to punish and shut down a complete TV station just because it criticizes the American policy in the region…

Thus, Al-Manar and Al-Aqsa TVs seem to be ‘threatened’ by the American prominent ‘democracy,’ a democracy that doesn’t hesitate to punish complete satellite networks because of their ‘opinions’ in a country that claims to be the protector of the ‘freedom of expression’
