Volcano weather alert: Six Killed as Indonesia’s Mount Rokatenda Volcano Erupts [VIDEO] and this might be a big enough eruption to cause some cooler, wetter weather. Already, it is again, going down to the low 40′s tonight here and will be colder than normal for the next weeks like in June. A three week summer, we had this year so far!
Then there is the resumption of the Cold War which seems to please our rulers immensely because they work very hard at making it colder: Obama outlines proposals for reining in NSA surveillance while simultaneously saying that Snowden who snowed on his parade, is not a patriot but a traitor. Of course, Obama, the upper echelons of Congress, the military/industrial Daddy and Mommy Warbucks knew about this spying and heartily approved of it and are royally pissed, we got to learn about the details.
Thus, forcing Obama to backtrack and claim he wants to ‘reform’ this…while perusing Snowden as a ‘criminal’ of course. Not a whistleblower. The fact is, legally speaking, since our government ADMITS there is too much spying due to Snowden releasing the truth, this means the government was wrong and Snowden has a legal right to expose this nefarious activity because it protects the American people who didn’t know about the wild extent of this spying.
The embarrassing business of closing most of our embassies in Muslim countries this last week finally reached the dinosaur brains of the State Department who then went all coy and huffed that this really wasn’t an emergency after all, ahem. But spying on everyone works because this stopped the ‘terrorists’ who are…al Qaeda! Who Obama just this week said, we defeated. Ahem. HAHAHA.
The Iranian TV service laughs, too: PressTV – Unhappy with US foreign policy? Pentagon says you might be a ‘high threat’ so this means, only delusional drones can work for our fascists? HAHAHA. No smarty pants nerds need apply! Or anyone sane, for that matter. Only crazy lunatics who live in delusions gets to work there.
Our rulers are increasingly childish. I though Bush Jr. probed the lowest levels of brattiness but alas, he found his partner in infantile behavior: Obama meets the press in the East Room, releases new details about NSA spy program Obama hits out at Putin for having ‘that kind of slouch, looking like the bored kid in the classroom’:
‘The American people need to have confidence in’ the way the U.S. views and executes its national security priorities, he said.
And ‘I’m also mindful of how these issues are viewed overseas,’ the president emphasized.
‘What makes us different from other countries,’ he said, ‘is not just the way we secure our nation, but the way we do it.’
Sorry, we are not any different from the Soviet Union or the DDR Stasti. We are the Cold War blundering giant whore. And everyone is outraged about US spying! And the problem is, our foreign policy has NOTHING to do with our national security priorities! It is all about Israel’s needs and demands.
Russia hits back: Russian foreign minister tells US to behave ‘like grown-ups’ – Telegraph
Moscow, which maintains military links to the Syrian regime, insists the main cause of conflict is an influx of Islamist fighters from across the region intent on destabilising the regime.
Mr Lavrov yesterday called for a new international summit on the conflict at which world leaders should join Russia’s efforts to “fight terrorists and force them away from Syria”.
Russia also remains opposed to US plans to install missile defences in eastern Europe, despite Washington’s announcement in March that one system planned for Poland would be scrapped.
And our junior deranged partner, Japan, is in the Russian news because the Pacific Ocean Japan is polluting is right next door to Russia: Fukushima drainage has 20,000 tons of water with radioactive substance – TEPCO — RT News.
Here is interesting analysis which I agree with: Pump and pray: Tepco might have to pour water on Fukushima wreckage forever — RT
And this brings me to my second point, and a warning to the Japanese people. The contamination of the sea results in adsorption of the radionuclides by the sand and silt on the coast and river estuaries. The east coast of Japan, the sediment and sand on the shores, will now be horribly radioactive.
This material is re-suspended into the air through a process called sea-to-land transfer. The coastal air they inhale is laden with radioactive particles.
I know about this since I was asked in 1998 by the Irish State to carry out a two-year study of the cancer effects of releases into the Irish Sea by the nuclear reprocessing plant at Sellafield. We looked at small area data leaked to us by the Welsh Cancer Registry covering the period of 1974-1989, when Sellafield was releasing significant amounts of radio-Caesium, radio-Strontium, and Plutonium. Results showed a remarkable and sharp 30 per cent increase in cancer rates in those living within 1km of the coast.
Yes, plutonic fog rising out of the pounding seas, will slowly kill people internally. Tokyo is very near to Fukushima and on the ocean and with 14 million victims, will be showered with this noxious stew from Fukushima and this will go on and on and on and on…for years and years and years and years and no one has the faintest idea how to stop this and there are no urgent international meetings to discuss this and Japan cares only about a chain of uninhabitable islands which irritates nuclear armed China.
And thus we get a renewed Cold War complete with potential annihilation of all humans! Thanks a lot, all you childish, irritable, badly behaved children running whole countries into WWIII.
