US Troop Surge in Iraq to Pacify Baghdad to satisfy Oil Majors - Is it destined to Fail ? / Politics / Iraq War

By: Mike_Whitney

“There is no solution. We’ve destroyed Iraq and we’ve destroyed the region, and Americans need to know this.”
Nir Rosen; interview with Amy Goodman, “Democracy Now”

Let’s assume for a moment, that Dick Cheney is the driving force behind the plan to surge in Iraq. Does anyone really believe that the vice president is genuinely concerned about the safety of the Iraqi people? And, yet, the media still insists that the purpose of the troop-increase is to improve security in Baghdad. Nothing could be further from the truth. The wellbeing of the Iraqi people has never been a factor in the administration’s decision-making and it isn’t now.

Are we Better Off than Our Parents ? / Politics / Social Issues

By: Clif_Droke

Who had it better: Our parents or us? Much adieu was made recently about the U.S. population crossing the 300 million mark. The latest report from the U.S. Census Bureau sparked a flood of news articles on the population debate and not a few discussions on how our present standard of living has changed over the years.

One well-known publication made this statement in response to the census report: "[T]he typical family is doing a whole lot better than their grandparents were in 1967, the year the population first surpassed 200 million." This statement was made in a Forbes.com article which appeared recently on Internet news wires around the country. The article went on to tout the incredible level of economic prosperity our generation enjoys compared to the generation 40 years prior. It was entitled "The Average American: 1967 and Today" and was written to convince today's younger generation that they've never had it so good and should stop their grumbling and be happy about their economic lot. Problem was, the article was extremely superficial and just barely scratched the surface of all the major economic influences that determine whether our current standard of living is higher than that of our parents' and grandparents' generation. In other words, it was a propaganda piece in the truest sense.

The New World Order - Bilderbergs a power elite who supposedly rule the world / Politics / Global Financial System

By: Douglas_V_Gnazzo

The Bilderbergs - who are they and what do they do? An aura of mystique surrounds the name, casting shades of reflections of the power elite who supposedly rule the world. Presidents, royalty, prime ministers, global industrialists, and financial leaders from around the world are said to be members of the secrete organization that meets once a year to set the direction and course of international affairs, world events, and global policies.

The first Bilderberg conference was held at the Bilderberg Hotel in Osterbeek Holland in May 1954, from which it derives its name. Created as a secret and supportive adjunct of NATO and the Marshall plan of the 1940s, the raison d'etre behind the group was to promote post war trans-Atlantic cooperation between America and Europe. It has since evolved into much more.

Russia fires nuclear missile at Britain - Radiation poisoning suspect named Lugovoi / Politics / Russia

By: John_York

The richer Russia becomes, the more aggressive its foreign policy becomes. This is evidenced by the recent turmoil in the oil & gas supplies to Western Europe Russia cuts oil to Europe in response to Belarus syphoning off thousands barrels of oil . And the assassination of a critic of President Putins regime in Russia, Andre Litvinenko who died on November 23rd from Polonium-210 poisoning ( Russian ex-agent poisoned whilst investigating killing of journalist Anna Politkovskaya).

The media in Britain have named Andrei Lugovoi as the person considered as the prime suspect for the poisoning, to be named by British Police, who have spent the last 2 months laboriously following the Polonium 210 trail across London, on board flights right back to Andrei Lugovoi in Russia. (Radiation found on at least two BA B767 aircraft that flew from London to Moscow)

Secrets of the New World Order / Politics / Global Financial System

By: Douglas_V_Gnazzo

My last article ended with several quotes from Professor Carroll Quigley, a world renowned scholar who had written quite extensively about secret societies and other elite groups, whose sole purpose was to establish a New World Order.

The following part of one such quote reveals important insights into not only Quigley, but the entire subject as well.

"In fact, this network, which we may identify as the Round Table Groups, has no aversion to cooperating with the Communists, or any other groups, and frequently does so. I know of the operations of this network because I have studied it for twenty years and was permitted for two years, in the early 1960's, to examine its papers and secret records.

Government admits that the NHS is overpaying GP's as average salaries surge well above £100,000 due to government mismanagement of contracts / Politics / NHS

By: Nadeem_Walayat

Patricia Hewitt, the Health Secretary, has said that the Government should have capped GP Salaries when the new contracts were introduced in 2004. "I think if we anticipated this business of GP's taking a higher share of income in profits we would have wanted to do something to try to ensure that the ratio of profits to the total income stayed the same and therefore more money was invested in even better services for patients,” she said.

NHS GP's enjoy record pay for less hours whilst neglected patients suffer / Politics / NHS

By: Nadeem_Walayat

A near tripling in GP salaries since New Labour came to office has led to less time spent in practice by GP's, as they seek to enjoy their windfall payout's on the golf green rather than spend time in surgeries. This means less time committed to patient consultations and thus quality of GP diagnoses is expected to decline significantly.

NHS runs out of money - Despite a £100 billion budget , time to privatise ? / Politics / Strategic News

By: Nadeem_Walayat

NHS trusts up and down Britain have reportedly run out of money, and as a consequence are cancelling routine operations such as treatments for varicose veins, teeth etc. We highlighted this possibility in our article of 25th December 06 - The NHS is killing Britain as it wastes tens of billions every year , Hospital trusts continue to request billions more as GP's are told to refer fewer patients to hospitals. As well as hospital departments being told to turn patents away.

Whilst in the meantime, the debt that has built up through utter incompetence and mis-management by NHS Trusts CEO's, that have in some cases tripled salaries of none front-line staff, which is the primary reason why £100 billion per year is not enough to meet the needs of patents, despite reduced patient load due to lengthening in waiting lists

The NHS is killing Britain as it wastes tens of billions every year ! / Politics / NHS

By: Nadeem_Walayat

The UK Labour government came to office in 1997, focused on reinvigorating the National Health Service (NHS), this they did with vigor where the annual NHS budget has grown from £34 billions in 1997 to the present days £96 billion ! A more than 282% increase !!!!

Given the surge in spending, you would expect everything to be happy in the NHS, with ample funds to go around, if so ? You would be badly mistaken. NHS trusts up and down the country are reporting budget over-runs and cut backs in beds available to patents as well as on staffing with demands for billions more money to be spent.

Iran's nuclear program prompts UN sanctions, as Israel threatens military strikes / Politics / Iran

By: Nadeem_Walayat

Iran, seemingly on course to become the next state to acquire nuclear weapons, due to perceived security risks from the USA and Israel, just as before India went nuclear because of China, and Pakistan because of India. Israel is believed to have gone nuclear during the late 1970's as a result of a joint nuclear programme with the South African Apartheid regime, as a deterrence against the Arab states. And the last state to go nuclear, North Korea as a consequence of threats from the USA and UN sanctions.

By: John_York

The UK Labour government led by Tony Blair has revealed plans for the successor to the Trident submarine nuclear deterrent. The plan is for 3 smaller nuclear submarines, in some 20 years time. The initial estimate is for £20 billion, but given the history of defence spending over-runs this could easily reach £30 billion, ($60 billions). Additionally there would be running costs of at least £1 billion.

John Bolton is the second high profile member of President George Bush's team to leave after the Republicans lost badly in Novembers mid-term elections. President Bush had originally angered senators by bypassing them by appointing Mr Bolton in August 2005 on a temporary basis whilst the senate was in recess.

The new chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee (Senator Joe Biden), made it clear that Mr Bolton would not be confirmed by his committee, saying that "he saw no point in considering Mr. Bolton's nomination again."

By: John_York

The killing of Pierre Gemayel the Minister for Industry and member of the Phalange party, shook lebanon's weakening government, with the finger of blame immediately pointing to Syria. At least three gunmen rammed their car into Gemayel's vehicle near Beirut, then leapt out and riddled it with bullets, firing at Gemayel with silencer-equipped automatic weapons at point-blank range in a Christian neighborhood. Ten bullet holes were seen around the window of the driver's seat of his grey car. The two front seats were soaked in blood.
