UNSPUN NEWS - 160824


WORLD
“… with Australia’s manufacturing industry having been hollowed out too over the past decade, the capital investment pipeline for both mining and manufacturing are gone. So the fall-off, when measured in terms of a percentage of GDP, is nothing short of spectacular in historical context…”  Ouch…..

“Yemen's children die from bombs, bullets, hunger“  Don’t ya just love the Zaudis?

“Anti-war advocates are launching an 11th-hour bid to stop U.S. Congress from approving a $1.15 billion arms sale to Saudi Arabia in its fight against Houthi rebels in Yemen, which was announced earlier this month.”  A match made in hell…...


“The U.S. government, having illegally sent American troops into Syria, is now threatening to attack the Syrian military if it endangers those troops, an Orwellian twist that marks a dangerous escalation …. ”

“Official Washington’s disdain for international law—when it’s doing the lawbreaking—was underscored by ex-CIA acting director Michael Morell voicing plans for murdering Iranians and maybe Russians in Syria”

PCR - “Can Russia Survive Washington’s Challenge?”  Interesting analysis from PCR re the alliances and factors around Russia, USA, and the M.E. …..

PEPE ESCOBAR - “Russian Tu-22M3 Backfire bombers - as well as Sukhoi-34 fighter bombers - leave from the Iranian Hamadan airfield to bomb jihadis and assorted «moderate rebels» in Syria, and immediately we've got ourselves a major, unforeseen geopolitical game-changer.   The record shows that Russia has not been present militarily in Iran since 1946; and this is the first time since the 1979 Islamic Revolution that Iran allowed another nation to use Iranian territory for a military operation.”   Oooopsy...

THIERRY MEYSSAN - “Just as in all wars, the war against Syria has triggered an avalanche of propaganda. And the use of children is always a winning strategy.“  (Taking a look at the use of children by the International Coalition during the war against Syria….)

UNDER-REPORTED
“Washington takes every effort to make Russia attack Ukraine“ … “Editor’s note: I find myself in full agreement with the Russians on this one – the Ukrainian regime is an illegal far-right facist junta hell-bent on resuming open hostilities. This is because it is a puppet regime put in power and controlled by Zionist Neocons in Washington … “

“Hillary Clinton has threatened to shut down alternative news websites in America if she is elected President of the United States. Hillary’s campaign sent a threatening email to fundraisers saying that independent conservative news outlet Breitbart News has “no right to exist,” and hinted that they were making plans to shut it down forever once Hillary is elected.“  And if you didn’t see that looming, you’re asleep….

“Russia Won't Let International Terrorism Triumph in Syria, China to Help“  Bottom line:- “A lot depends on the Syrian, Russian, Iranian, Chinese alliance against the scourge of US imperialism – maybe humanity’s fate.“  I’d say that there’s no exaggeration there ….

“Donald Trump has urged a new “war on terror” that brings back torture and seeks revenge on terrorists’ families, but another problem with the Republican nominee’s approach is his exaggeration of the danger.”  Americans have little choice in voting, it seems - bad, or worse…..

“CONFIRMED: India pledges support for Assad after meeting in Damascus“

NUCLEAR
“Fukushima And The Oceans: What Do We Know Five Years On?“  (A down-player) “the review’s lead author expresses concern at the lack of ongoing support to continue the radiation assessment, which he says is vital to understand how the risks are changing.”

EARTH
“Marine scientists were amazed at their luck when they shot video of the rarely seen sixgill shark in Canada. ….. Sixgills are an ancient species and have been around since before dinosaurs roamed the Earth.“

ERIC ZUESSE - “Both of the feasible hellish outcomes – nuclear war, and escalating burnout of the biosphere (from climate-heat plus associated ocean-acidification) – are now at record-high likelihoods. Either alone can end civilization as we know it, but unfortunately both of them are at historic peaks and heading toward a surprisingly-soon hellish end of civilization, either way. “

Record cold in Norway - “The high temperature of the day in mid August, which is supposed to be hottest time of the year, barely made it above 8c (46F).” “… for the entire August as whole, which makes this record even more extreme.”

These strange structures, erected in two locations in Scotland, pre-date Stonehenge by some 500 years …”

Albuquerque, NM, US - “Teachers at Carlos Rey Elementary School are in a tough situation after their assistant principal told them to stop calling their students “boys and girls.”

US - “Phoenix dust storm of August 21, 2016 - Views from below, inside, and above“

ALTERNATIVE
Whoa!  Some facts leak out ….. “After a century of excavations trying to prove the ancient accounts true, archeologists say there is no conclusive evidence that the Israelites were ever in Egypt, were ever enslaved, ever wandered in the Sinai wilderness for 40 years or ever conquered the land of Canaan under Joshua’s leadership.  (…) In 1999, an Israeli archeologist, Ze’ev Herzog of Tel Aviv University set off a furor in Israel by writing in a popular magazine that stories of the patriarchs were myths and that neither the Exodus nor Joshua’s conquest ever occurred.”

PREDICTION/FORECASTS

ASTRONOMIC
“The Maya Were Tracking the Planets Long Before Copernicus“  WAY long …...

“Sunspot AR2579 is growing rapidly, but does not yet pose a threat for strong solar flares.”

BOOK
Book review - “Where Reincarnation and Biology Intersect”  “Writing as a specialist in psychiatry and as a world-renowned scientific investigator of reported paranormal events, Stevenson asks us to suspend our Western tendencies to disbelieve in reincarnation and consider the reality of the burgeoning record of cases now available.”  So put the power/control brainwashing aside and have an instructive read!
