Stop calling violent riots here in America flash mobs

Submitted by admin on Thu, 08/11/2011 - 11:09

The London Riots are just stupidness in action. But this brings me to another point ... these so called "Flash Mobs". In the USA the media likes to call VIOLENT RIOTS "Flash Mobs" I guess because it sounds safer and innocent.

Please stop. They are NOT the same thing.

Seattle Terrorists and Free Guns

Submitted by admin on Thu, 06/30/2011 - 15:18

Just 2 weeks ago there were KNOWN terrorists in Seattle trying to buy weapons for attacks (STRATFOR website) and lucky for us they tried to buy those weapons from the FBI. But now the breaking story is about a rifle left on the truck on a cop car in that VERY SAME CITY. But I don't know why but no one seems to be mentioning the relevance of these two events (Seattle Examiner). We all know how stupid it was for a cop to lay their rifle on a car and walk away and then for another cop to then drive that car around town. But it become much more RELEVANT when....

I just finished watching President Obama's press conference that announced the death of Osama Bin Laden. I found a few points very interesting.

That's why pirates wear eye patches - laser guns

Submitted by admin on Wed, 01/12/2011 - 22:45

BAE Systems is marketing a ship board laser to stop pirates. The laser has a range of 2km as a 'visual warning' that they have been targeted. But as they get closer the strength of the beam is like looking at the Sun, making it impossible to aim rifles or RPGs at the ship. No damage is caused making this a non lethal laser beam. It uses a Neodymium Yttrium Aluminium Garnet laser which is an effective deterrent at relatively low power levels.

Oops. Someone leaked the Goverment's How to Prevent Leaks document

MSNBC is hosting the OMB document on their website. This is an 11 page report on how to various US Government agencies can prevent future leaks. Maybe this is just a rough draft because it doesn't sound like the strategy has been implemented. Or perhaps this was just test to see if it worked which in this case I don't think it did.

Wikileaks - time to share and share alike

Submitted by admin on Sat, 12/11/2010 - 02:11

Here are a few perspectives on the Wikileaks' Cable posts. Grits for Breakfast has some great research and comments on how the Mexico leaks point to why the Mexican government has failed in their war with drugs. He references a great post over at CNN which says only about 2% of those arrested by the Mexican military actually get prosecuted.

The Falcon Lake Murder - Mexican drug war spills American blood

Submitted by admin on Thu, 10/21/2010 - 23:31

Its shocking how bad Mexico is right now and no one in the US media is paying much attention. I don't know why because its just the kind of over the top violence that most newies love to show. The four-year conflict has left at least 30,000 dead (LA Times). The article below by STRATFOR is the first time I saw a clear picture of what is happening in Mexico and how it all got started.

Their reporting and analysis is bar none the best I have seen. I enjoy watch NatGeo's Border Wars but their episode Murder on the Lake was a reporting joke compared to STRATFOR. The aricle below to this post to understand why the war is still raging out of control and a pretty good picture of the Mexican situation starts to form.
