He may yet turn out to be the avatar of Iranian democracy, but three decades ago Mir-Hossein Mousavi was waging a terrorist war on the United States that included bloody attacks on the U.S. embassy and Marine Corps barracks in Beirut.
Mousavi, prime minister for most of the 1980s, personally selected his point man for the Beirut terror campaign, Ali Akbar Mohtashemi-pur, and dispatched him to Damascus as Iran's ambassador, according to former CIA and military officials.
The ambassador in turn hosted several meetings of the cell that would carry out the Beirut attacks, which were overheard by the National Security Agency.

A FINANCIAL adviser has barely escaped with his life after being beaten and held hostage for four days … by a gang of old-age pensioners.
American James Amburn was beaten until his ribs broke, burnt with cigarettes and hit with a Zimmer frame by the gang of five pensioners furious that he’d lost their £2 million ($4.1 million) savings.
There have been a few false alarms in the last year or so with the supposed economic freefall collapse and swine flu pandemic never materializing. However, we must remain on guard. Now Infowars and Bob Chapman are reporting that the U.S. banks will be taking a holiday in the coming weeks.
Bob Chapman’s influential International Forecaster is reporting on the possibility of a so-called “bank holiday” planned for late August or early September. According to Chapman’s sources, U.S. embassies around the world are selling dollars and stockpiling money from respective countries where they operate. “Some US embassies worldwide are being advised to purchase massive amounts of local currencies,” writes Harry Schultz, “enough to last them a year.” Schultz publishes the Harry Schultz Letter, an international investment, financial, economic, and geopolitical newsletter named as “Newsletter of the Year” by Peter Brimelow of Market Watch in 2005 and 2008.
So what happens if the banks take a holiday? What will the average person do? How can you prepare?
It is unsure what effect the bank holiday will have on regular commerce. Sundays are bank holidays and the world does not end. However, if the bank holiday also applies to ATM banking, then there may be some problems. Most people do not carry much cash, so if they are unable to get their cash out of the bank's ATMs, then there will be panic and bank-runs. The crisis will cause everyone to get so disgusted and scared that when the global bankers step in with the one-world government financial solution, everyone will accept it with open arms and the bankers win!
As for what to do, I'm no expert, but I would have as much cash on hand as you can spare. I would also buy canned and freeze dried foods. I would get water filters, guns and some alternate communication form aside from the Internet and the cellular phone system. That's a good start and will put you ahead of most people who will be lost IF the banks go on holiday. If you can afford it, you would also want to get some land 50-100 miles from a sizeable town with a water well, solar power generating system and a vegetable garden.

NASA wants to bomb the Moon! What in the name of Dr. Doom Cobra Commander is going on around here? You don't bomb the Moon. It regulates our tides and its gravity definitely affects our planetary cycle. What if this bomb knocks the moon out of orbit or worse directly into the Earth? Hey, the Autobots were able to knock Cybertron out of Earth's orbit in the "Ultimate Doom" by exploding a large energon cube bomb in its atmosphere.
Nasa scientists are preparing to launch a space mission from Cape Canaveral carrying a missile that will fire a hole deep in the surface of the moon..

Congress Eliminates the EPA's Proposed Regulation Against Factory Farms For the Mandatory Reporting of Greenhouse Gas Emissions!
When Congress actually gets an opportunity to pass legislation that will help reduce gas production from farms, Congress gives waivers to the factory farms -- corporate entities that show huge profits and have a huge political lobby. Nevertheless, I bet Congress will stick it to the small family farm with ridiculous taxes, licenses and regulatory fees while the factory farms will continue to rake in huge profits.
...Yet, yesterday the House Appropriations Committee undermined this progressive proposed regulation by passing the 2010 Interior and Environment spending bill. An amendment in the bill will prevent the EPA from requiring factory farms to report their GHG emissions—a move that represents a blatant handout to large factory farms.

Unfortunately, this commercial ignores science and nature. Polar bears live out on the ice and can swim very well!
Polar bears are strong swimmers; they swim across bays or wide leads without hesitation. They can swim for several hours at a time over long distances. They've been tracked swimming continuously for 100 km (62 mi.) (Stirling, 1988).
They hunt seals, whales, and walruses -- all animals that live in or around water. Even if the ice does melt completely, the polar bears have been moving further south into the towns where human trash replaces plump seals. The mainstream media is finally recognizing this polar bear falsity!
Most populations of polar bear are doing well. Despite the melting in the Arctic ice cap, numbers have more than doubled since 1950. They are also good swimmers.
We should definitely be concerned about living mutually with the planet's animals. However, the facts about polar bears should not be distorted or falsified to generate sympathy for the global warming/climate change movement. Remember, don't believe everything you see on TV!

Emperor Palpatine Speaks...No, Actually It's Zbigniew Brzezinski Discussing the Current Iranian Uprising and Election Crisis with Fareed Zakaria!
Yet in real life he's allegedly worse than Doctor Doom, Palpatine, Lex Luthor, Joker and the Grizzly combined, because Brzezinski has been accused of every diabolical scheme imaginable. Brzezinski even allegedly admits to evil acts in his books!
Nevertheless, I do have to give Mr. Brzezinski credit where credit is due and compliment him for his sharp intelligence and overall political genius. This man does not need a teleprompter. During this interview with Fareed Zakaria, Mr. Brzezinski does not break verbage or train of thought at any time. No "uhhhs" or pauses in his delivery. Incredible! For an 81-year old man, that is quite amazing. I guess he does not drink the fluoride.
Anyway, here are Zbigniew Brzezinski's thoughts on the current Iranian revolt with CNN host Fareed Zakaria.

Why Are the Mainstream Media Outlets (CNN, MSNBC) Giving So Much Free On-Air Advertising to the Private Company Twitter?
***UPDATE (August 30, 2010) - This is why I should never say "never." I said below that I would never get a Twitter account. I should revise that statement to say, I won't get a "personal" Twitter account, because I did activate a Twitter account for Remixx World! at Twitter.com/RemixxWorld.
As I sit here marinating on a lazy Sunday afternoon with CNN playing in the background, I wonder why does the media keep mentioning Twitter. Please count how many times on CNN they mention Twitter in an hour of live news. Is Twitter a part of the government? Or is it a private entity?
Now the networks have even incorporated Twitter into their respective broadcasts and are using it as a source of news. Is there any way to verify or authenticate a message that appears on someone's Twitter page or "tweet" as some might call their outgoing messages (note-I am assuming they call it a "tweet")?
Do I really want to get my news from Twitter? I am not saying Twitter is valueless. It can definitely be used as a communication tool (as it has been used in Iran recently), but Twitter should not be given any higher value than other direct testimonies. I do not want to hear entire segments devoted to Twitter news. Can Twitter posts even be considered news unless or until they are authenticated?
Call me crazy, but I have never really seen the networks incorporate some private entity into their telecasts like the networks have with Twitter. The newscasters have Twitter pages and they give instructional pieces on how to set-up and use Twitter accounts during live newscasts Why? It is not like Twitter can cure cancer or save the whales or feed the children!
The networks did not do this with Facebook, nor did they do this with Myspace or Friendster. I was called crazy for having a political Myspace.com page in 2006, but it would be mandatory for a political candidate to have a Myspace, Facebook, Twitter and who knows what else is popular. I personally stopped at Facebook and will never get a Twitter page.
Maybe the networks are just getting lazy and just want the people do all their work while they take the credit.
Or if you want to take the conspiracy theory route and believe that type of stuff, perhaps they want everyone linked up on Twitter, so all communications (or at least the important ones) will flow through a single database point. People are always talk about being chipped up. Who says the chip has to be an internal chip?
It could be an external chip and be just as effective. Every cell phone is an external chip and a majority of people have a cell phone. With the external chip and the Twitter once everyone joins, it would not be difficult for the telecommunications agencies to compile a database that captures a person's daily communications and locations on a verifiable digital record, because most people do not turn off their cell phones.
Henry Kissinger Threatens Regime Change in Iran If the Current Coup Fails (Is Kissinger Running National Security for the White House?)
As National Security Advisor Jones said recently at a CFR event, "I take my daily orders from Dr. Kissinger."
