  2. FYI:

    A new household survey of Iraqis has projected the civilian death toll from the Bush administration’s invasion and occupation of Iraq at roughly 450,000. Passive information-gathering techniques like logging deaths in the Western press have produced estimates closer to 150,000, but such techniques have been proven to miss a lot of people. (To my knowledge no one was counting all the deaths reported in the some 200 Arabic-language Iraqi newspapers in the 2000s, so even the passive information-gathering was limited. And, the Wikileaks US military log of civilian deaths did not overlap very much with e.g. Iraq Body Count, so both of them were missing things the other caught.)
    Of those extra deaths beyond those who would have died if the US had never invaded, some 270,000 died violently, with US troops responsible for about 90,000 civilian deaths and militias for another 90,000. Of those killed violently, 60 percent were shot, and 12 percent died from car bombs. Some 180,000 died because of the destruction of the public health infrastructure (lack of access to hospital treatment, e.g.).
    Despite the horrific total, this estimate for 2003-2011 is smaller than the Lancet study of some years ago, which was done under wartime conditions. The authors admit, however, that the death toll could have been even higher; this total is a projection based on 2000 interviews.
    The US/ UN sanctions on Iraq of the 1990s, which interdicted chlorine for much of that decade and so made water purification impossible, are estimated to have killed another 500,000 Iraqis, mainly children. (Infants and toddlers die easily from diarrhea caused by gastroenteritis, which causes fatal dehydration).
    So the US polished off about a million Iraqis from 1991 through 2011, large numbers of them children. The Iraqi population in that period was roughly 25 million, so the US killed or created the conditions for the killing of 4% of the Iraqi population.
    If Iraq had killed 4% of Americans, it would be 12 million people dead.
    Iraq did not attack the United States. It did attack Iran in 1980, but by 1983 the US was an ally in Iraq’s war against Iran. It also attacked Kuwait, which it occupied quite bestially, but it was out by spring 1991. There was no casus belli or legitimate legal cause of war in 2003. Iraq’s main crime appears to have been to be an oil state not compliant with US demands.
    All this is horrible enough. Even more horrible is that the US occupation of Iraq sparked a Sunni Arab insurgency, which is still vigorous. Insurgencies typically take 10 to 15 years to subside. Some 5000 Iraqi civilians have been killed so far this year by that insurgency. US occupation is the gift that goes on giving.
    Despite the Bush administration’s violation of the UN charter and its war crimes in Iraq, none of its high officials has faced prosecution. Some of them even have the gall to come on television from time to time to urge more killing.

  8. MOSCOW--The Russian economy showed no annual growth in August and contracted 0.4% from the previous month in seasonally-adjusted terms, the economy ministry said Friday.

    The figure confirms that the country's economy is stagnating amid low investment, high inflation and capital flight.

    Investors are reluctant to invest in Russia as geopolitical tensions related to the crisis in Ukraine show little sign of easing, and the lack of reforms slows the country's productivity. Consumer spending, for years the engine of Russian growth, is stalling due to high inflation and a weakening ruble.

    Growth is also getting little support from the oil market, where prices for oil, Russia's main export, are declining.

    The Russian economy added 0.7% in the first eight months of the year, the ministry said. The government expects overall growth to be 0.5% in 2014.

    Russia's trade surplus was up 17% at $16.6 billion in August, the ministry said.

  10. little research and the similarities between the Muslims and Babylonian Judaism becomes clear

    It is impossible to understand Islam and Muslims by listening to their protestations against terror and their proclamations of patriotism for America. Usually, it is wise and fair to give people the benefit of the doubt but when it comes to national safety and the future of America, we had better look twice, even thrice at Muslim patriotism. Why? Because Islam permits lying!

    But so does the Talmud, in Baba Kamma 113a.

    'Where a suit arises between an Israelite and a heathen, if you can justify the former according to the laws of Israel, justify him and say: 'This is our law'; so also if you can justify him by the laws of the heathens justify him and say [to the other party:] 'This is your law'; but if this can not be done, we use subterfuges to circumvent him.

    Subterfuges: deceit used in order to achieve one's goal.
    synonyms: trickery, deviousness, deceit, deception, dishonesty, cheating, duplicity, chicanery, pretense, fraud, fraudulence

      Anyone who steals even a minor amount violates the prohibition of [Leviticus 19:11] "You shall not steal" and is required to repay [the amount stolen] whether one steals from a Jew or a gentile.



      Shulchan Aruch Choshen Mishpat 359:1

      It is forbidden to rob or to cheat even a minor amount from either a Jew or a gentile.
      R. Shlomo Gantzfried, Kitzur Shulchan Aruch (Abridged Code of Jewish Law), 182:1

      It is forbidden to rob or to steal even a minor amount from either a Jew or a gentile.
      Maimonides, Mishneh Torah, Hilchot Gezeilah 1:2

      And it is biblically forbidden to steal even a minor amount; even a gentile - it is forbidden to steal from him or to cheat him. And if you stole from him or cheated him you must return the stolen money or object.
      Sefer HaChinuch, 259

      Maimonides of blessed memory wrote that if one lies in his measures and thereby overcharges even to an idolatrous gentile one violates a negative commandment and must return the money. Similarly, it is forbidden to mislead the gentiles in calculating prices as it says [Leviticus 25:50] "he shall make a reckoning with his purchaser" [see below] even if he is subjugated to your authority; even more so if the gentile is not subjugated to your authority and it says [Deuteronomy 25:16] "For an abomination to the Lord, you G-d, are all who do this."

  11. U.S. fighters and drone aircraft continue to strike targets tied to the so-called Islamic State group, with at least 10 missions carried out in Iraq and Syria since Friday. Some of the strikes hit around Kobani, a town close to Turkey's border with Syria that's been under siege.

    Kobani is in an area where tens of thousands of Kurdish people have fled Syria in the past week, seeking safety in Turkey.

    "They are in the fight of their lives," the BBC's Paul Wood reports from the town, "and every night, according to the Kurdish fighters, they are attacked by Islamic State. So far, the air strikes — although the Kurds are very grateful for them — don't seem to have stopped the jihadis from trying to take this place."

    Seven air strikes were carried out in Syria and three in Iraq, according to U.S. Central Command, which adds that Saudi Arabia, Jordan, and the United Arab Emirates participated in some of the strikes.

    CENTCOM details the strikes' outcomes:

    1. ERDOGAN SHIFT

      Turkish President Tayyip Erdogan signalled a shift in Ankara's position by saying for the first time that Turkish troops could be used to help set up a secure zone in Syria, if there was international agreement to establish one as a haven for those fleeing the fighting.

      Turkey has so far declined to take a frontline role in the U.S.-led coalition against IS, but Erdogan told the Hurriyet newspaper: "The logic that assumes Turkey would not take a position militarily is wrong."

      He said negotiations were under way to determine how and by which countries the air strikes and a potential ground operation would be undertaken, and that Turkey was ready to take part.

      "You can't finish off such a terrorist organisation only with air strikes. Ground forces are complementary ... You have to look at it as a whole. Obviously I'm not a soldier but the air (operations) are logistical. If there's no ground force, it would not be permanent," he said.

    DHS - A Microcosm of the Dysfuction that is the US Government Bureaucracy

    After 9/11 the US decided that having 22 separate organizations that shared responsibility for national security at one level or another yet didn't talk to each other was a problem so they decided to create another organization which like Frodo's ring would 'rule them all'. The end result is that we now have 23 separate bureaucracies that don't talk to each other and the new one doesn't know how to talk to itself.

    The following link outlines some of the dysfunction at the DHS,

    https://medium.com/war-is-boring/the-department-of-homeland-security-is-broken-ee8f268e7c6d

    Some of the findings out of the GOA' audit of DHS:

    - DHS not only cannot control R&D spending, they don't know how much they spend on R&D, in fact they don't even know what R&D is.

    - DHS is too big and no one really knows who is in charge.

    - DHS turnover is the highest in the government and its morale is the lowest.

    - And, with what is the bane of every government agency, more "...than 90 committees and subcommittees—and an extra 30 congressional task forces and commissions—oversee DHS. The department answers to too many people. It doesn’t know who to listen to."

    - Construction started on DHS' new HQ 10 years ago and was supposed to be completed by now. The new completion 'estimate' is for 2026 at a price 50% higher than the original estimate.

    - What does the taxpayer get in exchange for DHS’ $60-billion annual budget? Failed contracts, redundant research, miserable employees and bureaucratic confusion—all in an agency that’s supposed to help keep America safe.

    The primary functions of any government bureaucracy are assuring that bureaucracy's survival and growth. If those bureaucracies ever provide a real and useful service, it is like found money, serendipitous and beneficial even though secondary and incidental.

    With all the wasted money floating around government programs is it any wonder that Washington D.C. has the richest zip codes in the nation?

    2. As has been said, previously, "O"rdure cannot handle the truth.

      The Invention of the Jewish People
      is a book written by Shlomo Sand, an Israeli professor of history at the University of Tel Aviv.

      The author wasn’t probing a belief system but Zionist fabrications of a spurious common lineage for people of the Jewish faith.

      Sand argues that the idea of Jews having a common ethnic identity is implausible because, as with Christianity and Islam, Judaism was originally a “proselytising religion”.

      The notion of Judaism as a “race”, rather than a religion of various races, is without foundation.

      The recent study by John Hopkins geneticist Dr Elhaik confirms...
      that the common genome structure of the European Jew gravitated towards an origin in old Khazaria.

      “The majority of Jews do not have Middle Eastern genetic component,” he told Israeli newspaper Haaretz.

      Founded on a mélange of myths and manufactured historical tales,
      Israel has failed the archaeological test of time and is now exposed by DNA science.

      Today’s genetics prove unequivocally that in 1948 “the children of the original Jews” were replaced by converts ...
      With no roots in the Middle East.

    Common Core. What is it?

    Answer: Evidently, one more elitist social program brought to you by the sociologists and 'educators' in the Obama administration


    I have to admit that I have been clueless on the issue of Common Core and had no idea of what it involved. My kids have been out of school for a long time and even my grand kids are all far enough along not to be affected by it. However, I keep seeing it pop up in articles on RCP and such. From the titles most of the articles seem kind of skeptical. So today I decided to read one and after doing so came away with the impression that it was merely one more attempt by the government to impose their will on American parents, to indoctrinate the kids, to pamper the egos of our educational 'experts', to build up the revenues of text book companies, and to change the role of education from building a complete, well rounded, socially, culturally, and politically aware individual ready to take his part in a liberal and democratic society to one which is restricted to job training. Perhaps, I don't know enough about it to make the judgment; however, based on this one primer, I feel safe in saying I don't think I will like it.

    This is the year new national Common Core tests kick in, replacing state tests in most locales, courtesy of an eager Obama administration and the future generation’s tax dollars. It’s also the first year a majority of people interviewed tell pollsters they’ve actually heard of Common Core, four years after bureaucrats signed our kids onto this complete overhaul of U.S. education.

    Common Core has impressed everyone from Bill Gates to U.S. Education Secretary Arne Duncan. So why do 62 percent of parents think it’s a bad idea? For one, they can count. But their kids can’t. the year new national Common Core tests kick in, replacing state tests in most locales, courtesy of an eager Obama administration and the future generation’s tax dollars.

  21. Another day, another beheading in the news. While we all recoil in horror at the brutality of the ISIS mode of attention getting, I have to cringe a bit when I think about our own usage of this barbaric tactic.

    In the early 1860s, Apache chief Mangas Coloradas, who had come in under a flag of truce, was subsequently tortured and killed by U.S. troops. Then, he was beheaded, and his skull sent back east "for study."

    ReplyDelete

    1. Impressive Mangas

      Mr. Coloradas supposedly stood six feet four, which means he towered over everyone in the Southwest (Geronimo and Billy the Kid were both 5' 7") with the possible exception of Sheriff Bob Paul and Pat Garret (both also stood 6' 4").

      Mangas' daughter married Cochise. An amazing guy and a formidable fighter. Here is the order given to the soldiers at the fort where Mangas went under a flag of truce:

      "Men, that old murderer has got away from every soldier command and has left a trail of blood for 500 miles on the old stage line. I want him dead tomorrow morning. Do you understand? I want him dead."

      —Brigadier General Joseph Rodman West

      In the early 1870s, soldiers under General Crook, battling Apaches who would not stay on the reservation, instituted a bounty on Apache heads. Paul Andrew Hutton, who is still working on his epic Apache book which should be out next year, will write a cover story for us on, what he calls, "The Severed Heads Campaign." The moral here is that ISIS still has a ways to go to catch up to our own brutality.

  23. >>>European explorers to the Americas between the 15th and 19th centuries brought several diseases with them that proved deadly to the native population. Diseases such as smallpox, influenza and measles killed approximately 90 percent of the Native American population. The indigenous people did not have any previous exposure to these deadly diseases, and had no natural immunity.<<<

    http://classroom.synonym.com/deaths-caused-diseases-among-native-americans-18th-century-16655.html


    The population figure for Indigenous peoples in the Americas before the 1492 voyage of Christopher Columbus has proven difficult to establish. Scholars rely on archaeological data and written records from settlers from the Old World. Most scholars writing at the end of the 19th century estimated the pre-Columbian population at about 10 million; by the end of the 20th century the scholarly consensus had shifted to about 50 million, with some arguing for 100 million or more.[1] Contact with the New World led to the European colonization of the Americas, in which millions of immigrants from the Old World eventually settled in the New World.

    The population of African and Eurasian peoples in the Americas grew steadily, while the number of the indigenous people plummeted. Eurasian diseases such as smallpox, influenza, bubonic plague and pneumonic plagues devastated the Native Americans who did not have immunity. Conflict and outright warfare with Western European newcomers and other American tribes further reduced populations and disrupted traditional society. The extent and causes of the decline have long been a subject of academic debate, along with its characterization as a genocide.[2]

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Demographic_history_of_the_indigenous_peoples_of_the_Americas

    The figures are greatly in dispute.

    Sooner or later it was bound to happen though, with the development of shipping around the world. Christian Coastal cities and trade carried diseases actually helped the desert Moslem types.

    It is such a long term and huge story it shouldn't be reduced to accusations and counter - accusations of barbarity by only this group or that.

    There was also a great deal of intermarriage among all sorts of groups......

  27. The ground under Bruce Braley has shifted.

    The Democratic U.S. Senate candidate is 6 points behind his GOP rival, Joni Ernst, according to The Des Moines Register's new Iowa Poll of likely voters.

    Ernst leads 44 percent to 38 percent in a race that has for months been considered deadlocked. She leads nearly 4-1 with rural voters, and is up double digits with independents.

    "Very interesting, and good news not just for Ernst but also for the GOP's chances of taking the U.S. Senate," said national political prognosticator Larry Sabato of "Sabato's Crystal Ball."

    Just seven months ago, political analysts considered Braley almost a shoo-in for a seat held for 30 years by liberal Democrat Tom Harkin.

    Khorosan Group? What Khorosan Group?

    You haven’t heard of the Khorosan Group because there isn’t one. It is a name the administration came up with, calculating that Khorosan — the –Iranian–​Afghan border region — had sufficient connection to jihadist lore that no one would call the president on it.

    The “Khorosan Group” is al-Qaeda. It is simply a faction within the global terror network’s Syrian franchise, “Jabhat al-Nusra.” Its leader, Mushin al-Fadhli (believed to have been killed in this week’s U.S.-led air strikes), was an intimate of Ayman al-Zawahiri, the emir of al-Qaeda who dispatched him to the jihad in Syria. Except that if you listen to administration officials long enough, you come away thinking that Zawahiri is not really al-Qaeda, either. Instead, he’s something the administration is at pains to call “core al-Qaeda.”

    “Core al-Qaeda,” you are to understand, is different from “Jabhat al-Nusra,” which in turn is distinct from “al-Qaeda in Iraq” (formerly “al-Qaeda in Mesopotamia,” now the “Islamic State” al-Qaeda spin-off that is, itself, formerly “al-Qaeda in Iraq and al-Sham” or “al-Qaeda in Iraq and the Levant”). That al-Qaeda, don’t you know, is a different outfit from al-Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula . . . which, of course, should never be mistaken for “al-Qaeda in the Islamic Maghreb,” “Boko Haram,” “Ansar al-Sharia,” or the latest entry, “al-Qaeda in the Indian Subcontinent.”

    Coming soon, “al-Qaeda on Hollywood and Vine.” In fact, it wouldn’t surprise me if, come 2015, Obama issued an executive order decreeing twelve new jihad jayvees stretching from al-Qaeda in January through al-Qaeda in December.

    Except you’ll hear only about the jayvees, not the jihad. You see, there is a purpose behind this dizzying proliferation of names assigned to what, in reality, is a global network with multiple tentacles and occasional internecine rivalries.

    As these columns have long contended, Obama has not quelled our enemies; he has miniaturized them. The jihad and the sharia supremacism that fuels it form the glue that unites the parts into a whole — a worldwide, ideologically connected movement rooted in Islamic scripture that can project power on the scale of a nation-state and that seeks to conquer the West. The president does not want us to see the threat this way.

    For a product of the radical Left like Obama, terrorism is a regrettable but understandable consequence of American arrogance. That it happens to involve Muslims is just the coincidental fallout of Western imperialism in the Middle East, not the doctrinal command of a belief system that perceives itself as engaged in an inter-civilizational conflict. For the Left, America has to be the culprit. Despite its inbred pathologies, which we had no role in cultivating, Islam must be the victim, not the cause. As you’ll hear from Obama’s Islamist allies, who often double as Democrat activists, the problem is “Islamophobia,” not Muslim terrorism...

  29. The Meta-Margin is up too.

    More good polling news for GOP Senate hopes
    By Richard Baehr

    Sam Wang is a mega-wonk at Princeton, whose analysis has been more favorable to Dems this cycle than fellow wonk Nate Silver, who adjusts polls for state and other factors (fundraising).

    That changed this week, even factoring in the Kansas debacle for the GOP, due to a shift in Alaska and Colorado towards GOP. Wang writes at the Princeton Election Consortium:

    Our time window is currently to take the last 3 polls or the last 2 weeks of data, whichever is more, for each state. This measure takes a little while to move, but when it does, that’s meaningful. Statistically, we are now at the most Republican-leaning end of the range that we have seen in the entire graph.The dip in June looks better for Republicans, but keep in mind that on September 3rd, the Meta-Margin jumped by 0.8% when Chad Taylor (D-KS) dropped out of the race. Subtracting that gives a better feeling for where we’re at, not counting Kansas. In short: as a group, Republican Senate candidates outside Kansas are at an all-time high. (emphasis added)

    From the NYT,

    "The conservative author and documentary filmmaker Dinesh D’Souza was spared prison time on Tuesday after pleading guilty earlier this year to violating federal campaign finance laws."

    D'Souza is obviously a liar and a crook and he probably got off easy, 5 years probation, community service, fines, living in a half way house for a number of months but there is one part of his sentence that is remarkable. Dinesh will also have to undergo 'therapeutic therapy'. When I read it in the times I kind of skipped past it but then went back. I couldn't figure out the reason.

    Then I saw this article in the City Journal

    http://www.city-journal.org/2014/eon0924td.html

    Mr. Dalrymple has some negative views of the sentence in his article the The Reeducation of Dinesh D’Souza

    If crime is illness, no limit exists to the treatment that may be employed to cure it and nothing inhibits the use of ferocious remedies to root it out. As Lewis intuited, cruelty may then be disguised as benevolence, and there is no cruelty like that which believes it is doing good.

    True, therapeutic counseling is not hideously cruel, though it is likely to be agonizingly idiotic for any intelligent person. Moreover, it is also likely to invite dishonesty on the part of the “treated,” who will be expected to accept the counselor’s point of view without demur, however ludicrous or demeaning it may be. Contestation will be taken as a sign that the patient-criminal is not cured and therefore in need of yet more therapeutic counseling. To enforce therapeutic counseling as “treatment” for a criminal act is a violation of the integrity of the human personality. There are worse violations no doubt, but it is the beginning of a descent down a slippery slope.

    Punishment is not therapy; crime is not disease. The Soviets thought that dissent was crime and crime was disease: therefore, with them, dissent was disease. We have not yet reached that point, but “therapy” for illegal campaign contributions is coming uncomfortably close to it.

  38. Iraqi forces say they repelled a jihadist attack near Baghdad, AFP reports.



    Iraqi pro-government forces backed by warplanes on Sunday repelled a jihadist attack on a strategic town only 40km (25 miles) west of the capital Baghdad, security sources said. The Islamic State (IS) group attacked Amriyat al-Fallujah in Anbar province at around 1:00 am (2200 GMT on Saturday), local police chief Aref al-Janabi told AFP.

    “They attacked from two sides... The fighting lasted five hours,” he said, adding that soldiers, policemen and Sunni tribesmen were fighting together to defend the town. Warplanes eventually engaged the insurgents and killed 15 of them.”

    According to Janabi, the IS military leader in the nearby city of Fallujah - whom he named as Mullah Jassem Mohammed Hamad - was killed leading the attack. A military intelligence officer at the operations command for Anbar province also reported the IS leader’s death.

    It was not immediately clear which air force intervened but French and US jets have carried out air strikes in areas west of Baghdad. Unlike the .. . . . . . .
