HSBC are one of the best run and most ethical of all the international banks. The senior managers are of the highest quality. There are far worse banking institutions to pick on. These bombers are a few olives short of a Greek Salad, so such behaviour is to be expected.

Gas cannisters and fuel, huh?  Isn't that convenient.  That certainly would seem to head off any speculation that the NYC "bombing attempt" was something other.  Maybe it's the same guys and they took a plane to Greece...

Yep, it's got all the hallmarks of the Taliban.  Those dirty diaper-headed bastards!  We need to go into Pakistan and wipe those ragheads off the face of the earth, salt the land, then turn it into glass with a nuke.  Send that missile right up the ass of...whoever the fuck is the new evil leader we're supposed to hate.  I don't care who it is, I just like to see shit get blowed the fuck up!

BTW, "The Long War Journal" ("long war" = "war on terror" after some lipsuction and botox) is made up of a bunch of neocons and neocon-lite douchebags.  Exactly the kind of useful idiots you'd call upon to start the propaganda campaign for expanding the war into Pakistan to eradicate the evil Taliban terrorists.

NYC’s Kelly Says No Evidence Mossad Taliban Behind Incident


Gosh, it was just a simple guffaw!

This is how the game is played.  Subtle propaganda programming.  al Qaeda isn't the enemy anymore (the bin Laden story has run past its shelf life), now the focus is on the Taliban, those evil-doers who just never did accept the oil pipeline contract prsented to them (despite threats to do so else they'd be bombed back to the stone age- funny, even being stone-agers they're still able to repel our empire's army!).  Destination (as some have suggested), Pakistan (actually, it's Cashmere).  The work of Edward Bernays carries forward...

Why stop at the panhandle?  I heard-say speculation today that the amount of oil being shat out into the gulf might be on the order of 25,000-50,000 barrels per day.  If that's the case and they don't put a cork in it soon, say bye-bye to the east coast, Greenland, and possibly most of northern Eurpope as well.

Those familiar with the Web Bots might recall reading that Clif High explained the Web Bot results can sometimes yield the correct coordinates of a future event but on the wrong side of the planet.

The Bushehr nuclear research reactor in Iran is at about the same latitude (very close in fact), and almost directly opposite the oil spill in terms of the globe (ok, it's off my about 30 degrees).  The Shape of Things to Come report mentioned that, as a result of the Israeli attack on Bushehr, the airstreams would be polluted with nuclear fallout that would carry through the atmosphere twice.  What if the correct interpretation was an oil spill in the gulf stream?

This is all just alarmist speculation, and random coincidence, but it is interesting.

In a recent interview, http://webbot-project.blogspot.com/2010/04/playlist-042410-webbot-clif-h... , Clif attributed the bad airstreams with the volcanic activity in Iceland.

This weekend, George Ure in his subscriber update, indicated the oil spill meets more of the parameters of the "Blue Flue" from The Shape of Things to Come, when the methane aspects are discounted.

Hey you don't want to burn BP stations. Those are assets to be seized to pay claims. BP paying $1200/day for small fishing boats to help with cleanup. NOAA has closed Federal waters to fishing from the Mississippi to Pensacola so your oyster boat is now a VSCC or Very small crude carrier.
