Just When You Thought Big Brother Couldn’t Get Any More Orwellian…

Enemy of the State with a twist. They can track you with satellites, find your doorway with the GPS coordinates shot at your doorway, and now if you try to get away, with the push of a button they can release a lethal poison into your body.

Beware, rightwing extremists, and lovers of the U.S. Constitution, the means to competely control you has arrived.

A Saudi inventor was seeking to bring his insidious killer chip to Germany until the German patent office rejected his request. Germany’s laws prohibit inventions that are unethical or a danger to the public. Considering the sinister history of Hitleric proportions, one can understand that law.

The device in question is a tiny semiconductor that is designed to be surgically implanted or injected into the body. The purpose of the device is to track persons using GPS satellite technology, and in the case of the intention on the patent request, to track visitors who are overstaying their visas.

For some, the creation of such a device is not a surprise considering the increasingly percieved need for security. However, it is not a long shot to consider that the device could be used against citizens for more sinister reasons. How far of a stretch is it for the government to use such devices to keep an eye on “undesireables” and those considered to be subversives? The device could be used to track political opponents, as well as the usual suspects of troublesome people, and eliminate them at will.

Though Germany rejected the inventor’s device, that does not mean the inventor won’t find success in securing a patent for the device in another country.

Iran: We successfully fired missile that can hit Israel

Iran: We successfully fired missile that can hit Israel
Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad announced Wednesday that Iran has successfully test-fired a new advanced missile with a range of about 1,200 miles, far enough to strike Israel and southeastern Europe as well as U.S. bases in the Gulf.

U.S. sources later confirmed the test, adding that the administration was looking into its range as well as other data.

The solid-fuel Sajil-2 surface-to-surface missile is a new version of the Sajjil missile, which Iran said it had successfully tested late last year with a similar range.


“The Sajil 2 missile, which has an advanced technology, was launched today … and it landed exactly on the target,” Ahmadinejad said during a visit to the northern Semnan province, where Iran’s official news agency IRNA said the launch took place.

The announcement comes just two days after U.S. President Barack Obama declared a readiness to seek deeper international sanctions against Iran if it shunned U.S. attempts to open negotiations on its nuclear program. He said he expected a positive response to his diplomatic outreach by the end of the year.

Iran’s announcement is likely to arouse further concern in the West about Iran’s military ambitions. The U.S. and its allies suspect the Islamic Republic is seeking to build nuclear bombs. Tehran denies the charge.

Iran said in November it test fired a Sajil missile, describing it as a new generation of surface-to-surface missile. Tehran said it was ready to defend itself against any attacker.

Washington said at the time that the test highlighted the need for a missile defense system it plans to base in Poland and the Czech Republic to counter threats from what it calls “rogue states”.

Brazil and China eye plan to axe dollar

Filed under: One World Goverment — Steven @ 12:51 am


Brazil and China will work towards using their own currencies in trade transactions rather than the US dollar, according to Brazil’s central bank and aides to Luiz Inácio Lula da Silva, Brazil’s president.

The move follows recent Chinese challenges to the status of the dollar as the world’s leading international currency.

Mr Lula da Silva, who is visiting Beijing this week, and Hu Jintao, China’s president, first discussed the idea of replacing the dollar with the renminbi and the real as trade currencies when they met at the G20 summit in London last month.

An official at Brazil’s central bank stressed that talks were at an early stage. He also said that what was under discussion was not a currency swap of the kind China recently agreed with Argentina and which the US had agreed with several countries, including Brazil.

“Currency swaps are not necessarily trade related,” the official said. “The funds can be drawn down for any use. What we are talking about now is Brazil paying for Chinese goods with reals and China paying for Brazilian goods with renminbi.”

Henrique Meirelles and Zhou Xiaochuan, governors of the two countries’ central banks, were expected to meet soon to discuss the matter, the official said.

Brazil: Exports to ChinaMr Zhou recently proposed replacing the US dollar as the world’s leading currency with a new international reserve currency, possibly in the form of special drawing rights (SDRs), a unit of account used by the International Monetary Fund.

In an essay posted on the People’s Bank of China’s website, Mr Zhou said the goal would be to create a reserve currency “that is disconnected from individual nations”.

In September, Brazil and Argentina signed an agreement under which importers and exporters in the two countries may make and receive payments in pesos and reals, although they may also continue to use the US dollar if they prefer.

An aide to Mr Lula da Silva on his visit to Beijing said the political will to enact a similar deal with China was clearly present. “Something that would have been unthinkable 10 years ago is a real possibility today,” he said. “Strong currencies like the real and the renminbi are perfectly capable of being used as trade currencies, as is the case between Brazil and Argentina.”

In what was interpreted as a sign of Chinese concern about the future of the dollar, the governor of China’s central bank proposed in March that the US dollar be replaced as the world’s de-facto reserve currency.

In an essay posted on the People’s Bank of China’s website, Zhou Xiaochuan, the central bank’s governor, said the goal would be to create a reserve currency ”that is disconnected from individual nations” and modelled on the International Monetary Fund’s special drawing rights, or SDRs.

Economists have argued that while the SDR plan is unfeasible now, bilateral deals between Beijing and its trading partners could act as pieces in a jigsaw designed to promote wider international use of the ­renminbi.

Any move to make the renminbi more acceptable for international trade, or to help establish it as a regional reserve currency in Asia, could enhance China’s political clout around the world.

Obama, Netanyahu lay out Iran, Palestinian divides

US President Barack Obama on Monday held crucial talks with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, which highlighted divisions on confronting Iran and the notion of a Palestinian state.

Jordan king: Israel must accept Palestinian state

Filed under: Division of Jerusalem — Steven @ 3:26 am

AMMAN, Jordan (AP) — Jordan’s king pressed Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on Thursday to immediately commit to the establishment of a Palestinian state, as he pursues a sweeping resolution of the Muslim world’s conflicts with Israel.

Netanyahu made an unannounced, lightning visit to neighboring Jordan, as King Abdullah II and other regional leaders seek to lay the groundwork for restarting Israel-Arab peace efforts. Abdullah’s lobbying has been in step with the Obama administration’s efforts to link progress on Israel-Arab peacemaking to progress on curbing Iran’s nuclear ambitions.

The U.S. says moderate Arab states will not join a united front against Tehran unless Israel moves vigorously on peacemaking.

Netanyahu, however, argues that the threat from Iran and its regional proxies — Hezbollah in Lebanon and Hamas in the Gaza Strip — must be confronted first, before any progress can be made in peacemaking. And while he has been trying to forge cooperation with moderate Arab nations to pursue that agenda, he has pointedly refused to endorse Palestinian statehood.

Abdullah pressed Netanyahu in their meeting Thursday to “immediately declare his commitment to a two-state solution, acceptance of the Arab peace initiative and to take necessary steps to move forward toward a solution,” according to a royal palace statement. It did not give Netanyahu’s response, and a spokesman for the Israeli leader was not immediately available for comment.

The Arab peace initiative would offer Israel relations with the 23 Arab League members in exchange for its withdrawal from land it occupied in the 1967 war, a just solution for Palestinian refugees and the establishment of a Palestinian state with east Jerusalem as its capital.

Abdullah said there “is consensus in the international community that there is no alternative to the two-state solution.”

Netanyahu will likely hear a similar message when he meets President Barack Obama in Washington on Monday.

Pope Benedict XVI, on his first visit to the Holy Land, has also delivered a powerful plea for an independent Palestinian state alongside Israel. He will meet the Israeli leader later Thursday in the biblical town of Nazareth.

Netanyahu’s election this year has been ill-received in the Arab world because of his hard-line positions against yielding land captured in Middle East wars and his refusal to support Palestinian independence.

On a visit to Egypt on Monday, Netanyahu sought help in building a coalition of Arab nations against Iran and said he hoped to renew peace talks with the Palestinians in the coming weeks. But he made no endorsement of Palestinian statehood.

Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas has said he would not meet with Netanyahu until he agrees to pursue Palestinian independence and freeze construction in Jewish West Bank settlements, something Netanyahu has said he would not do. On Thursday, Abbas met with Syrian President Bashar Assad in Damascus to discuss Abdullah’s new Mideast peace push.

Abdullah traveled to Damascus earlier this week to promote his ideas to Assad.

Netanyahu says Iran’s nuclear program is Israel’s greatest threat and has hinted Israel might be willing to attack if international diplomatic pressure fails to stop Iran from enriching uranium — a process needed to produce bombs, but which is also used to produce fuel for power plants.

Iran says its nuclear program is designed to produce energy, but Israel, the U.S. and many other countries think Tehran is trying to develop atomic weapons.

Israeli media have reported that Netanyahu has met with military commanders and is pleased with their preparations for a military strike.

Vice President Joe Biden recently said Israeli military action in Iran would be “ill-advised” and U.S. Defense Secretary Robert Gates has reasoned it would not set back the Iranian program more than three years.

An attack certainly would risk an Iranian reprisal against Israel — or American troops in the Middle East.

Israeli aircraft destroyed Iraq’s unfinished nuclear reactor in 1981, but a strike against Iran’s program would be more complicated because Iranian facilities are scatted across a vast country and some are buried underground

Blair hopeful for two-state solution

Filed under: Division of Jerusalem — Steven @ 3:24 am

 Former British Prime Minister Tony Blair told Congress on Thursday there is no workable alternative to a two-state solution to the conflict between Israel and the Palestinians, and both sides are in favor of it. 

But in practice, “they doubt it can happen,” Blair told the Senate Foreign Relations Committee.

“The opportunity is there,” said Blair, who is the international negotiator for the Mideast on behalf of the United Nations, the United States, the European Union and Russia. “But it won’t remain if not seized. As President [Barack] Obama has recognized, this is the right time to seize it.”

The best way to go, he said, is to try to make it clear to the Palestinians that negotiations will result in genuine statehood and to the Israelis that there can be “an agreed program for reform of the Palestinian security sector.”

On the Israeli side, he said, Israel will not agree to a Palestinian state unless it knows its neighbor will be secure, stable and well governed.

Blair urged Obama to push quickly for negotiations, provided it clearly points to genuine Palestinian statehood.

Members of the Senate panel appeared to agree there was no alternative to negotiations.

“We all understand,” said the committee chairman, Sen. John Kerry, D-Mass., “that peace will not come to the Middle East quickly or easily.”

But, Kerry said, “I share Mr. Blair’s optimism that this moment presents an opportunity we cannot afford to miss.”
