I hear Karl Rove is going into the Rat-Fucker Protection Program.

Real Mormons don't lie.

I was visiting some Mormon friends in Provo. Their young daughter was talking with me, curious about my beard. I said something scary and she started to cry.
Her mom came over an said. "I know you were kidding and didn't mean to scare her, but you see, she took what you said as the literal Truth, because this is the first time in her life that she has heard someone tell a Lie."

That always stayed with me.

Same old Whore in a new Dress

DoD offers 'Training', identifies candidates who will 'tow the Line', recruits them and makes sure they rise through the ranks. Somehow, these candidates become Dictatorial Assh0les and DoD ends up having to use the Military to put them down. When is the last time a CIA backed populist took power anywhere? That creature doesn't exist.It never will exist.
If these Countries want to stay independent, they need to tell the US to go pound sand. I've seen it time and again, where the DoD promotes some Progressive agenda to get the funding, which then turns out to not to have been their true agenda at all. Anyone who believes any proposal by CIA to aid a Country has anything but a black underbelly is seriously delusional or on their payroll.

True, they are high temperature pyrotechnic cutting charges.

These devices were originally developed for Military Explosive Ordnance Disposal Technicians to enable large Bombs to be neutralized by cutting into the outer case of the weapon and causing the contained explosives to burn or detonate as a Low-Order Explosion.
I'm familiar with these devices because I worked in the facility where they were developed, at the Naval Ordnance Station in Indian Head Maryland.
They function by directing the thermal energy from the Thermite into a cutting jet that can cut through inches of Steel in a matter of a fraction of a second. The cut resulting looks much like that made by a cutting torch, except it occurs much faster.
These devices can be manufactured in various shapes and custom designed to produce whatever shape of cut is needed for the application. Since not all beams are of the same size and shape, they can be custom fabricated in advance for every required cut, based on engineering drawings from the original construction of the building.

By Eamon Javers | CNBC – 1 hour 23 minutes ago

Attorneys for jailed former Swiss banker Bradley Birkenfeld announced Tuesday that the IRS will pay him $104 million as a whistleblower reward for information he turned over to the US government.
The information Birkenfeld revealed detailed the inner workings of the secretive private wealth management division of the Swiss bank UBS (UBS), where the American-born Birkenfeld helped his US clients evade taxes by hiding wealth overseas.

Neo-Nazis, gangs and criminals in the US military


Domestic wars 
Leaders of the white supremacist movement view enlistment as a means of preparation for a domestic race war. Aside from general combat training, job perks include access to a laboratory of Iraqis and others susceptible to dehumanising brutalisation as well as opportunities to mail AK-47s and related items to the US. 
As Kennard demonstrates, the race war is not the only domestic conflict to which decaying military recruitment standards are contributing. According to a 2007 FBI report, "members of nearly every major street gang have been identified on both domestic and international military installations". The report's authors warn: "Both current and former gang-affiliated soldiers transfer their acquired military training and knowledge back to the community and employ them against law enforcement officers, who are typically not trained to engage gangster with military expertise."  

 US veterans face increased suicide risk
Kennard meanwhile cites statistics obtained by the Michael D Palm Centre via the Freedom of Information Act, revealing the proliferation in military ranks of felons and similarly qualified individuals. The Palm Centre, an official research unit of University of California at Santa Barbara, summarised its findings as follows: 

"The data indicate that from 2003 through 2006, the military allowed 4,230 convicted felons to enlist under the 'moral waivers' programme...  In addition, 43,977 individuals convicted of serious misdemeanors such as assault were permitted to enlist under the moral waivers programme during that period, as were 58,561 illegal drug abusers. In the Army, allowable offenses include making terrorist threats, murder, and kidnapping."

Finland impounds shipment of Patriot missiles, explosives in ship destined for Shanghai


(Kimmo Mäntylä, Lehtikuva/Associated Press) - Cargo ship M/S Thor Liberty at the Mussalo harbour in Kotka, Finland Wednesday Dec. 21 2011. Finnish customs found 69 Patriot surface to air missiles on the British flagged ship, destined for the Chinese port of Shanghai from Germany. Police and customs officials are investigating whether the shipment broke Finnish laws on weapons trading.

HELSINKI — Finnish authorities on Wednesday impounded 160 tons of explosives and 69 surface-to-air missiles found on a British-flagged cargo ship ultimately destined for Shanghai, China, officials said.

The M/S Thor Liberty sailed from the north German port of Emden on Dec. 13 and two days later docked in Kotka, southern Finland, to pick up a cargo of anchor chains, Finnish Customs spokesman Petri Lounatmaa said.
Investigating officers didn’t know the origin of the Patriot missiles or who was supposed to receive them, he said.

“We have impounded the explosives and missiles and asked the Defense Ministry to transport and store them,” Lounatmaa said. “At this stage we don’t know where it (the cargo) was loaded on the ship or if the Thor Liberty planned a drop before its port of destination in China.”
