I hope 10,000 is not true, if so there is going to be a total all out war on dictators.

Look for Intrade to put The House of Saud at the top of the list.

All Your Base Are Belong to Us.

al-Qaeda (pronounced /æl?ka?d?/ al-KYE-d? or /æl?ke?d?/ al-KAY-d?; Arabic:‎, al-q??idah, "the base"). When Osama Bin Laden, the former CIA employee, first heard George Bush say this word, he wasn't sure what Bush was talking about. All Osama knew was that "The Base" was the place he called "Al-Qaeda" in Afghanistan. Osama was the financier for the infamous Ayman Al-Zawahiri's then already failed Islamic Jihad group. It was a Bush Neo-Con scam to make you afraid of that scary word.

Yeah, because it's all an evil Bush/Cheney conspiracy, and al-Qaeda is really just a bunch of hippies in Afghanistan and Paki who don't behead people at all, don't train terrorists to shoot up Indian hotels and bomb nightclubs in Bali, don't hijack airplanes, don't behead Daniel Pearl, don't fight against US/Euro soldiers in Af/Pak (they're really just trying to give our troops hugs -- why we gotta be so mean Allah time?), and most definitely do not murder Santa Claus.

I fear the 10,000 number is drastically understated.  But there is some positive in this.  For years, people have been seeking to destroy Al-Qaeda, the faceless and elusive enemy.  Gaddafi was kind enough to provide the face of Al-Qaeda, and that face belongs to Gaddafi.  He claims Al-Qaeda caused this and it's clearly the work of those under his command.  Doesn't take much skill to connect those dots.

Neither, but my namesake was a Light Colonel, hunter, survivalist, gun expert, and author.  If you aren't familiar, see:

JW your posts are usually pretty good, WTF are you talking about?

With regards to Stg posts I don't necessary disagree but flaming people isn't an effective form of communication (even though it might feel sooo gooood).  Show a little self control.....  (I know it's difficult with all of the tempting targets). 

In the words of a fellow blogger that took me to task the last time I flamed someone.  You need to learn to be patient with people, we are all here to learn...... and some of us are just starting.

JW is not a troll.

Sometimes, he/she/it/they actually says something of remote and distant value.

JW is, however, a Royal Dick.  And JW is to blame for that. 

JW will deny this, for JW doesn't believe JW's shit doesn't stink.

JW:  some kind advice which you won't take...  in fact, you will flame me, because you are a flamer.  Smart, but a flamer.  Calm down.  Listen more than you speak.  Rediscover civility.  Understand that you are not the end, but merely a tiny gear in a massive machine which can, if it wants, grind you into dust without the first thought.

Zero Hedge is a Beautiful Thing.  Profanity should even be encouraged in its worn and bloodied halls.  But flaming innocent bystanders for simply asking a small question advances nothing but your bipolar tendencies.

Get a good single malt and think before you type.

Actually, JW will sometimes be the first one to admit he/she/it's a royal prick.  That's why he's real.

And that is a very fair thing.  Which is why I hope he doesn't junk me, but realizes my comments were made in the most sincerest of love.  ZH love.

AJ sez:

Gaddafi loses more Libyan cities

"...With authorities placing tight restrictions on the media, flow of news from Libya is at best patchy. But reports filtering out suggest at least 300 people have been killed in the violence.

But Franco Frattini, the Italian foreign minister, said there were "credible' reports that at least 1,000 had died in the clampdown..."

Hey fucktard before you call smb a moron you should consider the fact that The guardian is basicaly an arm of british intelligence.


Wed, 02/23/2011 - 18:16 | 990537 ZerOhead

Absolutely correct.

Notice how The Guardian has excised Wikileaks documents about British Gas and other companies bribing of Khazak officials.


From Israel Shamirs article...

The readers of The Guardian may never get to hear it, but the “big money” of capitalism does in reality result in “large bribes for the best connected”.

Just before dinner, Idenov was overheard “barking into his cell phone” at British Gas (BG) Country Director Mark Rawlings “who is ‘still playing games with Mercator's James Giffin,’ the notorious AmCit fixer indicted for large-scale bribery on oil deals in the 1990s, whose case drags on in the Southern District Court of New York. Idenov tells him: ‘Mark, stop being an idiot! Stop tempting fate! Stop communicating with an indicted criminal!’ ”

Again, the bold and very relevant information of the Astana cable has been removed from publication so that British taxpayers might not learn that the regional director of a prominent British company insists on dealing with an indicted grafter.

I monitor AlJazzera part of the day, and no mention of anything like that. More like 1000, though. Still lots.

However Gadaffi did send his thugs out to kill people last night to knock in doors and kill people (confirmed by witnesses) and most are paid mercinaries (confirmed) so a very large death toll is likely before the end.

Gadaffi is set to kill them all who live in the east of the country. He hates them. Very large death tolls are possible now. A no-fly zone must be announced within 24 hours or else the dessert will run with rivers of blood.

the greater threat to US hegemony is that lesser known terrorist group known as Al-gebra. Right now, in America, they are doing all they can to keep our kids from learning about it. So far they have been quite successful.
