The besieged Libyan city of Bani Walid has been plunged into chaos. Several sources told RT the former Gaddafi regime stronghold is under attack by militias bolstered by foreign mercenaries, and they used banned weapons like white phosphorous.

The sources denied reports of the last few days that Bani Walid was retaken by the Libyan government. Residents said that militia forces have continued their assault, while preventing the refugees who fled from reentering the city.

A man who claimed his relatives are trapped inside the besieged city spoke with RT, saying, “There is no food; there is nothing to support the life of people. And the militia does not allow anyone to come back to their homes.”

“They are demolishing homes with machinery and tanks. There is no communication or internet so people are not able to connect with each other,” the source said. He is currently in Egypt, and…

The Extinction Protocol

 October 27, 2012MEXICOThe Popocatepetl volcano unleashed about 70 emissions of low to moderate intensity, several of which were accompanied by ash expulsions reaching a height of 1.5 to 2 kilometers. A night glow was also observed during the night and some of the fumes emitted incandescent fragments near the crater. According to the monitoring system of the National Center for Disaster Prevention (Cenapred), the Volcanic Alert Level remains at Yellow Phase 2. It involves the likelihood that present moderate exhalations, some with ash emissions, sporadic bursts of level low to moderate probability of emission of incandescent fragments, may occur within walking distance of the crater. An incandescent light in the crater of the volcano is also distinctly observable during the night. At the same time, regional civil defense officials placed special emphasis on the following recommendations: continue the safety radius of 12 km, so staying…

The Extinction Protocol

October 27, 2012CLIMATEThe steady and dramatic decline in the sea ice cover of the Arctic Ocean over the last three decades has become a focus of media and public attention. At the opposite end of the Earth, however, something more complex is happening. A new NASA study shows that from 1978 to 2010 the total extent of sea ice surrounding Antarctica in the Southern Ocean grew by roughly 6,600 square miles every year, an area larger than the state of Connecticut. And previous research by the same authors indicates that this rate of increase has recently accelerated, up from an average rate of almost 4,300 square miles per year from 1978 to 2006. “There’s been an overall increase in the sea ice cover in the Antarctic, which is the opposite of what is happening in the Arctic,” said lead author Claire Parkinson, a climate scientist with…

Silver Lining

by Stephen Lendman, source

For decades, Israel has literally gotten away with murder. Crimes of war and against humanity repeat regularly. Human and civil rights are spurned.

Anyone not experiencing it firsthand can’t imagine the ruthlessness of occupation harshness. Besieged Gazans suffer most. For over five years, they’ve been lawlessly isolated and suffocated.

Former Ariel Sharon associate, Dov Weissglass, once said, “The idea is to put Palestinians on a diet, but not make them die of hunger.” In other words, make them suffer. Francis Boyle, Ilan Pappe, this writer, and others call it slow-motion genocide.

Call it anything you like but understand what’s going on. Why else would activists risk life and limb to help. No one pays them. They’re given nothing in return. They’re involved because it’s important to help.

They’re true heroes. Only friends, family, and supporters know them. Media scoundrels ignore them. Ship to Gaza Sweden (Estelle)…

The mobilization of Western military involvement in Mali – allegedly to combat “al-Qaeda” and other so-called jihadist groups – is the new pretext for a neo-colonialist “Scramble for Africa”.

France’s President Francois Hollande let it slip when, on a recent a tour, he said, “Africa is the continent of the future” – alluding to the vast natural wealth of the world’s largest landmass and the economic importance that it holds for Western powers.

Our Corporatist Two Party System is Rushing Us Toward Totalitarianism

In the current election cycle of 2012, we have an excellent example of how both of the dominant political parties, Democrat and Republican, continue to propagate the lies and misinformation that allow them to maintain total control of the political system. Both candidates for election to president, Barack Obama and Mitt Romney, are not only willing participants but active representatives of this process.
