$58 Billion more for War, no money for our States; U.S. Lasers shoot down Drones, Missiles, airplanes; “4 More Years, 4 More Years”July 29, 2010
After 9 years, and a “New” President, 58 Billion more US dollars are approved by Congress to continue the “wars”. See who voted “NO” and if they are your Member of Congress, Click Here. Please call and thank them. The killings must stop now. Every U.S. State is cutting back on Teachers, Firefighters, Police, Public Works projects, but the Federal Government can overlook this and send the money to the 175th poorest state out of 180, under the goal of eliminating the Taliban? The U.S. Voter is a Sucker. Including ME.<
The Assassination Drones and missiles can now be Lasered out of the sky by the U.S. It won’t be long before this technology reaches our adversaries. See who’s building Asassination Drones, Click Here at AirDroid News.
Raytheon Employee Mike Boone’s quotes from their press release:
“We’ve teamed with the Navy to bring the solid state lasers to the warfighter. We’ve linked a solid state laser to an actual U.S. Navy program of record, and that is Laser Phalanx.”
“Directed energy essentially gives warfighters an unlimited magazine. As long as they have electricity they have photons, and as long as they have photons they have bullets.”
“We actually shot down four of four operational UAVs. They were all destroyed and crashed into the sea.” – Mike Booen, Raytheon’s vice president of Advanced Security and Directed Energy Systems
FOUR More Years, Four More Years, where have we heard that before? We’ll be out of Afghanistan in Four More Years, do you believe that?
It took two years to determine the SIZE of the Peace Conference Table in France to End the Viet Nam War. Since the beginning of the invasion of Afghanistan, there have been many LIES told to us about what is happening there and in Iraq. Why should this be believed now? An Election Year? Enough suffering, bring our Troops Home NOW…
This is a good capture of what has been transpiring in Iraq about the Kurds lands. The Kurds have passed their own Constitution. They have even made Oil Deals with oil companies independently of Iraq Oil Ministry. This will be a blood bath once the issue can not be avoided as it is being avoided now. The Kurds want their own Kurdistan, not only the little area within Iraq, but a good chunk of Turkey, a small part of Syria, and a part of Iran, home of the 40,000,000 Kurds, the largest nationality without a country. Read Ahmed Janabi’s story that appeared in AlJazzera.net under ABOUT on the right of this page. Here’s a portion of his article:
Iraq’s autonomous Kurdish region has been at the centre of rising tensions with the federal government in Baghdad following a number of disputes over power sharing, land, oil contracts and drilling.
Nouri al-Maliki, Iraq’s prime minister, made his first trip to the region in more than two years on Sunday in a bid to resolve key disputes over land and oil.
Both al-Maliki and the Kurdish leaders tried to downplay their long-standing differences in public, with al-Maliki telling reporters: “Differences of opinion are very normal because we are building a state on the ruins of dictatorship … I think we largely agree, and if there are disputes, they are small.”
Massoud Barzani, the region’s president, said a high-level Kurdish delegation would visit Baghdad to “resolve problems”.
The rising tensions had triggered speculation of an eventual armed clash between Baghdad and the region, which won its autonomy with US backing, after the 1991 Gulf War.
