Finland’s National Institute for Health and Welfare (THL) has suspended the use of the H1N1 vaccine over fears that the shot is linked with a 300 per cent increase in cases of the neurological disorder narcolepsy among children and young people over the last six months.


We Are Cornered: There's No Way Out Without a Fight

Expanding the "War on Terror" in Yemen

Michael Horton, Truthout: "In an August 14 article entitled, 'Secret Assault on Terrorism Widens on Two Continents,' The New York Times reported on how the US is expanding its counterterrorism role in Yemen. The article describes an evolving 'shadow war' where the US utilizes a 'scalpel' approach to deal with the perennial threat of al-Qaeda or, in the case of Yemen, the recently rebranded al- Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula (AQAP)."

Amnesty International says war planes supplied by the UK to Saudi Arabia are "extremely likely" to have been used in attacks on civilians in Yemen.

An Exciting New Muslim Country To Attack

By Glenn Greenwald

There is anti-Americanism and radicalism in Yemen; therefore, to solve that problem, we're going to bomb them more with flying killer robots, because nothing helps reduce anti-American sentiments like slaughtering civilians and dropping cluster bombs from the sky.

U.S. Weighs Expanded Attacks in Yemen

Such a move would give the Central Intelligence Agency a far larger role in what has until now been mainly a secret U.S. military campaign against militant targets in Yemen and across the Horn of Africa. It would likely be modeled after the CIA's covert drone campaign in Pakistan.

Yemen says US officials exaggerate Qaeda threat

Sanaa insists that fighting terrorism in Yemen remains responsibility of Yemeni forces.

CIA wants to cover up US war crimes in Yemen

A missile strike on December 17 in Yemen last year that killed 41 people including 21 children and 14 women was most likely the result of a US cruise missile strike - an opening shot in a US military campaign that began without notice and has never been officially confirmed.

Obama’s other surge — in Yemen

Christian Science Monitor
by staff


The long struggle against Al Qaeda since the 9/11 attacks has taken many twists and turns. Now it has even led to the forced evacuation of an entire city of 80,000 people — in Yemen, the ancestral home of Osama bin Laden. The evacuation took place last week when the Yemeni military laid siege to the southern city of Loder in order to flush out a group called Al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula (AQAP), which may have 300 to 500 fighters. The battle, which left dozens killed on both sides, is the latest escalation of a joint effort by the Obama administration and the Yemeni government to rid the country of this dangerous affiliate of Mr. bin Laden’s core group in Pakistan...

Trying to Exclude WikiLeaks from Shield Law Stinks

It doesn't seem all that long ago that representatives of the newspaper industry would have recoiled from working with Congress to deny legal protection to anyone who leaked confidential or classified documents. Today, however, they seem happy to be doing so.


The possible prosecution of Wikileaks

Independent Institute
by Ivan Eland


The U.S. Justice Department is apparently considering prosecuting Julian Assange, the founder of WikiLeaks, which is a Web site that publishes classified documents from governments, under the rarely used Espionage Act of 1917. Such a prosecution would have adverse effects on the American people’s right to know what their government is doing in a republic that is supposed to be run by them...

The evolution of the welfare-warfare state

Strike the Root

The welfare-warfare state is thusly born, for welfare and warfare become interwoven when empire is the national goal.

The True National Debt

The Bush-Obama lies on Iraq

Future of Freedom Foundation
by Jacob G. Hornberger


President Obama’s announcement that all combat troops have exited Iraq, while 50,000 combat troops remain in Iraq, is fitting. Since the war began with a lie, the ‘end’ of the war might as well be based on a lie as well. Interventionists continue to maintain the sweet delusion that Iraq is better off as a result of the U.S. invasion. However, when they make that claim, they’re always referring to the Iraqis who are alive...

An army of contractors

by Gareth Porter


All indications are that the administration expects to renegotiate the security agreement with the Iraqi government to allow a post-2011 combat presence of up to 10,000 troops, once a new government is formed in Baghdad. But Obama, fearing a backlash from anti-war voters in the Democratic Party, who have already become disenchanted with him over Afghanistan, is trying to play down that possibility. Instead, the White House is trying to reassure its anti-war base that the U.S. military role in Iraq is coming to an end...

Confusion in Iraq: Troops and Contractors March Into New Era

Mike Ludwig, Truthout: "The Obama administration signaled the end of an era this week as the last combat troops left Iraq, but insurgents apparently did not get the message. A wave of attacks targeting Iraqi security operations left at least 51 dead and dozens wounded on Wednesday, just one day after the White House continued to congratulate itself for reducing the US presence to 50,000 'noncombat' troops."

Military needs new office to stem suicides



Rushing to stem historically high rates of military suicides, the service branches set up prevention programs that lacked strategic planning and so don’t work as well as they could, a report said Tuesday. The Pentagon should create a new high-level office to set strategy and coordinate prevention programs across the Army, Navy, Air Force and Marine Corps, said a task force report ordered by Congress last year...

The Omen has been behind every market crash since 1987, but significant stock-market declines have followed only 25% of the time. So there's a high likelihood that the Omen could be nothing more than a false signal.

US stocks lose big on home sales shock

CNN Money


U.S. stocks closed sharply lower Tuesday after a report showing showing a worse-than-expected plunge in existing home sales reignited fears about an economic slowdown. The Dow Jones industrial average (INDU) sank 134 points, or 1.3%, the S&P 500 (SPX) lost 15 points, or 1.5%, and the Nasdaq (COMP) composite fell 36 points, or 1.7%. … Disappointing economic news has sent investors flocking to the perceived safety of Treasurys and the Japanese yen, which hit a 15-year high against the dollar early Tuesday...
