Obama’s SURGE in Iraq continues thanks to “ISIS” –  “The U.S. is sending another 300 troops to Iraq to beef up security at the U.S. Embassy and elsewhere in the Baghdad area to protect U.S. citizens and property, officials said Monday. That raises the total U.S. troop presence in Iraq to approximately 750, the Pentagon said.”

Obama sending more troops as well as helicopters and drones – “UNITED STATES SENDS UP TO AN ADDITIONAL 300 TROOPS INTO IRAQ, DETACHMENT OF HELICOPTERS AND DRONE AIRCRAFT – PENTAGON

Killer Kerry says the first illegal invasion of Iraq was “a grave mistake” but this one is just fine – “United States (US) Secretary of State John Kerry admitted the War on Iraq was a mistake, during an interview given to a Chinese News Agency.”

Killer Kerry meets with Saudi King and Mercenary Terrorist Leadership in Syria over ISIS CRISIS – “U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry on Friday pressed a U.S.- and Saudi-backed rebel bloc in Syria to help roll back the Islamic State of Iraq and al- Sham

So… Obama administration gives terrorist mercs an additional 500 million bucks

Our neo-Nazi fascist Ukrainian puppets attack their own civilians with heavy weapons – “Ukrainian forces struck at pro-Russian separatist bases in eastern regions with air and artillery strikes on Tuesday after President Petro Poroshenko announced he would not renew a ceasefire but go on the offensive to rid Ukraine of “parasites”.

Killer Kerry tells Russia to “back off” while our neo-Nazi fascists in Ukraine slaughter the parasites – “Last week, John Kerry said that Russia needed to pull back in Ukraine in a matter of “hours, literally.”

A passenger bus in Eastern Ukraine was fired upon by Kiev soldiers – at least 4 civilians killed

A small price to pay for that all important EU Free Trade Zone “WONT SOMEBODY THINK OF THE PROFITS!!!”

CIAnonymous threatens supporters of new CISPA… and their “loved ones” – “The hacktivist collective Anonymous is threatening supporters of the Cybersecurity Information Sharing Act (CISA), warning that they should drop it if they “value the sanctity” of their loved ones and themselves.”

Meanwhile, while attention is elsewhere…

Israel launches airstrikes in Gaza in response to the “missing kids” “crisis” – “ Israel bombed dozens of sites in the Gaza Strip on Tuesday, striking at Hamas after finding the bodies of three missing teenagers whose abduction and killing it blames on the Palestinian Islamist group.

Hamas has nothing to do with the teens being killed - ““The story of the disappearance and killing of the three settlers is based on the Israeli narrative only,” Sami Abu Zuhri told AFP. “The Israeli occupation is trying to refer to this narrative in order to justify its wide-scale war against our people, against the resistance and against Hamas.”

Obama, Killer Kerry and Rice sympathize with Israeli parents  “WONT SOMEBODY THINK OF THE CHILDREN!!!!”

Hamas is like ISIS!!!!” squeals Israeli spokesman -

ISIS holding 100 kids as “hostages”. WON’T SOMEONE THINK OF THE CHILDREN!!!

Neoliberal News of the Day: March 2, 2013

Austerity Pushes EU Unemployment to Record Level @ 11.9%  –  “Even more dramatic is the rise in the level of youth unemployment for the eurozone to 24.2 percent, which raises the risk of removing a whole generation from the labor force. Eurostat, the EU’s statistics office, said nearly 19 million people were unemployed in the eurozone following an increase of around 200,000 in January.”

Child Poverty Massively Increases through EU Austerity Programs – “More and more children in Europe’s crisis countries go to school hungry, Caritas declared for crisis countries like Greece, Spain, Italy, Portugal and Ireland. The study [1] by “Caritas Europe” analyzed the effects of the crisis in Europe on children and came to dramatic conclusions. Referring to data of the EU commission, the catholic relief organization notes that a third of all children in these countries on average live in poverty or at the edge of poverty

Spain’s jobless soars to 26%; 1.8 million households with no member employed – “Spain’s unemployment rate shot up to a record 26% in the fourth quarter of 2012, leaving almost six million people out of work, the National Statistics Institute said on Friday. The rate rose from 25% in the third quarter as the country’s recession deepened.”

Incomes in the U.S. dropped by the most in 20 years - “Household purchases, which account for about 70 percent of the economy, climbed 0.2 percent after a 0.1 percent gain the prior month, a Commerce Department report showed today in Washington. The median estimate in a Bloomberg survey of 76 economists called for a 0.2 percent advance. Incomes slumped 3.6 percent, sending the saving rate down to the lowest level since November 2007.”

Why Does the US Chamber of Commerce Want to Train or Replace Your Elected School Board? – “A key role in the elite drive to privatize public education is being played by privately owned school “accreditation” agencies, which are immune from public scrutiny, and under the absolute thrall of pro-privatization forces like the US Chamber of Commerce and the Broad Foundation.”

EU Austerity Measures are Tearing Greece Apart… as they were designed to do – “We do not have six months. If the EU is going to change something, they need to change it yesterday. We even have problems burying the dead because people cannot afford the funeral expenses.” Refrigerators in the morgue were filling up with bodies until the church said that it would offer free burial for some families. “We are heading down the road of destruction.”

UK Defense Sec. Philip Hammond: cut welfare not troops – MORE AUSTERITY and MORE BULLETS!!! – “The Defence Secretary today warns that the Armed Forces cannot sustain further cuts and demands that the welfare bill is reduced to reflect rising levels of employment instead.”

EU Said to be Ready to Lift Restrictions Allowing Countries to Send Weapons to Terrorists in Syria - “Walid Saffour told the Guardian on Friday that following the amendment, “there will be a breakthrough that will end the restrictions of the European countries” for supplying militants with weapons by the next meeting of the so-called Friends of Syria, slated to be held in Turkey in late spring or early summer.”

The U.S.’s 60 Million in Aid to the Terrorists in Syria isn’t Enough! They DEMAND Weapons! – “”We don’t want food and drink and we don’t want bandages. When we’re wounded, we want to die. The only thing we want is weapons,” he told The Associated Press in a telephone interview.”

U.S. has been providing weapons and cash and training to the terrorists in Syria since 2007 – “US assistance, cash, weapons, and covert military support had been ongoing in Syria since 2007 – in other words – before the current conflict even began. And the US has been providing this support not for moderates, but specifically and intentionally for the ideological foundation of Al Qaeda itself, the sectarian extremist Muslim Brotherhood, since the Bush administration.”

FSA Bombs Nestle Plant in Syria Because it’s Owned by an Alawite – “As for the reason behind the burning, it’s quite simple, the owner of the commercial brand Sameer AlHassan is an Alawite. The fact that this factory was the only manufacturer of powdered milk “baby milk” didn’t stop FSA from burning it. Now Syrians had to turn to Iran to get baby milk.”

US Claims Cuba is a State Sponsor of Terrorism – “The claim of being a state sponsor of terrorism is a mere pretext, a blanket accusation Washington applies to any government it doesn’t like (and one that ignores America’s own history of supporting and carrying out international terrorism). A State Department report last year found that Cuba’s ties to so-called terrorist groups are tenuous at best.”

NYPD Lied Under Oath in Order to Prosecute Occupy Protester (wow. there’s a surprise) – “Nick Pinto of the Village Voice says he was nearby during the December 2011 rally and recalls watching Premo’s arrest from a distance. In his report from court this week, Pinto explains how the details provided by the NYPD in this trial have been fabricated to such a degree that the allegations presented by the cops turned out to be literally the opposite of what occurred”

The U.S. and the 21st Century Resource Grab in Africa: It’s Bigger Than You Think - “Most Americans do not realize the extent to which the U.S. is becoming involved militarily in the welter of conflicts throughout Saharan and sub-Saharan Africa (check out the chaos as mapped here). Although recent reports have tended to focus on the French effort to kick Al Qaeda in Islamic Maghreb (AQIM) out of Mali — an effort that may now be devolving into a far more complex guerrilla war, that French operation is just one operation in what may be shaping up to be a 21st Century version of the 19th Century Scramble for the resources of Africa.”

CISPA’s back: Hacking, online espionage resurrect cybersecurity bill – “The Cyber Intelligence Sharing and Protection act (CISPA) will be reintroduced before the US House next week following a spate of cyber espionage and hacking attacks. Civil liberties advocates have criticized the bill for violating privacy laws.”

(Killed Aaron Swartz then set off a few NSAnonymous attacks and PRESTO!! CISPA is back in the mix!)

Software that tracks your every move and predicts future behavior draws heat – “A video obtained exclusively by The Guardian shows how software developed by the US defense contractor Raytheon, can gather vast amounts of personal information from social networking sites such as Facebook, Twitter and Foursquare.”

The Real New World Order. Bankers Taking over the World – “Pure barbarity is what the promise of Western Civilization has been reduced to. What a wonderful world we have made!”

Thousands March to ‘Lift the Burden’ of Austerity in Ireland – “Over 100,000 Irish citizens took to the streets Saturday in protest of six years of severe austerity cuts and rocketing costs of living since the financial crisis plunged the country’s banking system into an endless debt spiral.”

Sandy Hook Tragedy: Corporate Media’s “Lone Gunman” Storyline Losing Ground -

In a December 26 court plea to postpone release of contents yielded through five search warrant, Connecticut State Attorney General Stephen Sedensky argued that unsealing such findings might “seriously jeopardize” the investigation by divulging evidence heretofore known only to other “potential suspects.”

Pointing to “information in the search warrant affidavits that is not known to the general public,”  Sedensky also argued that opening the warrants would “identify persons cooperating with the investigation, thus possibly jeopardizing their personal safety and well-being.”

The prosecutor’s statement came less than two weeks after Connecticut State Police Lieutenant J. Paul Vance told reporters how there were “some cards that we’re holding close to our vest.”

French helicopter bombards area in Mali’s Gao – “Witnesses said on Monday that the French army helicopter targeted a police station, which was used by the fighters a base last month.”

Israel announces plans for 90 more settler units in West Bank – “Many countries, including some of Tel Aviv’s allies, have condemned the latest Israeli plans to construct the illegal settler units in the occupied Palestinian territories.”

Daniel Ellsberg: Obama, Bush, Cheney, Rumsfeld and Senators Voting for Indefinite Detention Are “Enemies of the Constitution” – “American Government Claims Power that Even King George Didn’t Claim Daniel Ellsberg said this week

Obama’s Shakedown of Medicare -

In a political era of corporate dominance it was inevitable that doublespeak would become the official language of Washington, DC. Now “cuts” to social programs are referred to as “savings,” while the destruction of these programs is “reform.” This is the essence of President Obama’s doublespeakish “Race to the Top” public education “reform,” as well as his yet-to-be-announced deficit plan based on Medicare “savings.”

Barack Obama is Pushing Gun Control at Home, but He’s a Killer Abroad – “President Obama’s appeals to respect human life in the US are at odds with his backing for drone strikes in foreign parts”
