John Key Can’t Rule Out SAS Against ISIS!

September 29, 2014

Originally posted on Aotearoa: A Wider Perspective:

It would be his least preferred option (Why?) but he can’t rule out SAS. That basically means he will send SAS personnel but he won’t tell us. Just like Helen Clark 10 years ago.

——————————————————————–

Prime Minister John Key won’t rule out sending New Zealand’s elite SAS personnel to assist US efforts to counter Islamic State (Isis) militants in Iraq or even Syria but says that would be done reluctantly as a last resort, if at all.

Mr Key also confirmed New Zealand was assessing its security alert following recent reports of a terrorist plot in Australia and that he was seeking advice about New Zealanders fighting for groups like Isis who want to return home.

New Zealand has been named by the US State Department as one of more than 60 countries in the coalition supporting its efforts to counter Islamic State, according to a report in the Washington…

An Analysis of the Iraqi Resistance – Tendencies

I have decided to publish my most recent work, An Analysis of the Iraqi Resistance, on my blog. Previously, this piece was used for the research for “An Insiders Look at the Iraqi Resistance” a major piece that appeared on the Islamist website Jihadunspun.com (JUS got the copyright but I did the research). That long-running top-billed piece is now down, but it is still archived on Alexa here . Note that this material is copyrighted and all reproduction for profit is forbidden under copyright laws.

For information about reprinting or purchasing one-time rights to this work, email me. This article is an in-depth analysis of the Iraqi resistance and is continuously being revised. It is presently 58 pages long. It lists all known Iraqi resistance groups who have ever fought in Iraq since the fall of Baghdad and includes a brief description and analysis…

CBS News: Video: CBS Evening News With Walter Cronkite, 3/17/77: A Look at Foreign Affairs and Energy Policy

This was right before President Jimmy Carter gave his famous foreign policy and human rights speech at Notre Dame in the spring of 1977. The first United States President to ever at least during the Cold War to make human rights a centerpiece of his foreign policy. A true liberal democratic speech, policy, values that President Carter deserves a lot of credit for. And the best foreign policy if not speech he ever gave as President of the United States.

This was also right before President Carter laid out his national energy policy. Which was a move away from the Nixon and Ford administration’s which both pushed strongly for energy independence for America by focusing on producing a lot of oil, gas and coal in America. What President Carter’s energy policy was about was pushing for expansion of renewable energy sources. Like solar, wind and others and the President had…

British PM implores Scots not to rip UK apart

September 10, 2014

Originally posted on Global News:

Prime Minister David Cameron is urging Scottish voters not to break up the British “family” in an independence referendum next week.

Writing in the Daily Mail newspaper, Cameron told Scots: “We desperately want you to stay; we do not want this family of nations to be ripped apart.”

Cameron and the leaders of the Labour and Liberal Democrat parties cancelled a weekly Parliamentary question session to make a late campaign trip to Scotland on Wednesday.

Polls suggest the two sides are neck-and-neck ahead of the Sept. 18 vote, which could end Scotland’s 307-year-old union with England.

Scottish nationalist leader Alex Salmond says visits by the unpopular English politicians could only help the Yes campaign. He said: “If I thought they were coming by bus, I’d send the bus fare.”

Supporters of Nigerian President’s Re-Election Bid Are Using a Terrible Hashtag

September 10, 2014

Originally posted on TIME:

In an ill-advised political maneuver, supporters of Nigerian President Goodluck Jonathan have begun using the hashtag #BringBackGoodluck2015 to support the incumbent leader’s re-election bid.

The campaign is generating controversy because of its similarity to #BringBackOurGirls, one of the biggest social-media pushes of the year that was launched to demand the return of more than 200 Nigerian schoolgirls abducted in April by terrorist group Boko Haram. The al-Qaeda-affiliated jihadists have threatened to sell the girls as slaves.

What makes the repurposing of the hashtag even more unpalatable is that the victims have still not been rescued, despite a raft of promises by Jonathan’s government. The Nigerian military says it is reluctant to take concrete action lest Boko Haram kills the girls in response, reports the BBC.

Although #BringBackGoodluck2015 may not be officially used or endorsed by the President personally, it has appeared on banners and posters at several campaign events across…

Honda unveils its self-driving car powered by lasers, radars and cameras

September 10, 2014

Originally posted on Metro:

Honda has become the fourth company after Google, Ford and Toyota to share its own vision of the self-driving car.

The Acura RLX sedan uses cameras, radar sensors and laser beams to monitor lane marking and the car’s surroundings, while in-built GPS technology helps the car to stay on the course and follow speed limits.

In an impressive video filmed in Detroit, the car takes two passengers onto the highway, accelerating to the appropriate speed limit, braking if necessary and signalling to change lanes.

An Acura RLX sedan, a prototype car, is shown during a demonstration in Detroit, Tuesday, Sept. 9, 2014. The car has cameras that monitor lane markings and multiple radar sensors on the front and sides. On top is a beacon that uses laser beams to continually scan the carís surroundings, similar to self-driving prototypes already introduced by Google, Ford and Toyota. GPS also helps the car stay on a previously mapped course and follow the speed limit. (AP Photo/Paul Sancya)

One tech journalist said using the car was like a ‘five-star’ taxi journey (AP Photo/Paul Sancya)

‘Honda is aiming to eliminate accidents, not just for the driver but for pedestrians and drivers of other cars,’ said Hironobu Kiryu, the car’s chief engineer.

Speaking at the Intelligent Transport Systems World Congress, Mr Kiryu explained that if the car senses it cannot handle a situation – such as when a vehicle cuts too closes in…

Atheist must swear to God — or leave US Air Force

September 10, 2014

Originally posted on The "Great" One's Blog:

People really are full of crap, on both sides of the argument. First I must ask the question, when did the United States as a country, as a people, lose their common sense and become indoctrinated with Christianity? Surely our Founding Fathers were not religious freaks, in fact, most of them were deists – a far cry from being evangelical Christians. The fact that most of them were Freemasons and that they fled Europe to avoid, among other things, religious persecution is all the proof one needs that they were not Christians.

On the other side of the argument, an oath is nothing more than words, meaningless words. One has to swear on the Bible in court; talk about mindless stupidity! Swearing on a book of fairy tales with talking animals and all other kinds of nonsense.

It just seems to me that there are more important things to fight…

Why the ‘Rooney Rule’ isn’t the answer to the lack of black football managers

September 10, 2014

Originally posted on Metro:

Huddersfield Town’s Chris Powell can lead the way for equality in football management (Picture: Press Association Images)

Chris Powell’s appointment as Huddersfield Town manager has led to the lack of black managers again being discussed in the media, and rightly so.

The fact is Powell is the only non-white manager currently employed by the 92 clubs that make up the Football League and Premier League.

Equality in English football has moved forward in the past 30 years, but black players are now firmly accepted in the football family there there is still a lack of non-white coaches qualifying through the Uefa Pro Licence system.

Indeed, just seven per cent of Uefa Pro Licence holders, the minimum requirement for any permanent manager, are not white.

This is dire, especially when you consider that more than 25 per cent of players in the Football League are black, and 40 per cent of players aged…
