Ukraine War: A Reverse Cuban Missile Crisis :: Consortiumnews

Ukraine War: A Reverse Cuban Missile Crisis :: Consortiumnews

Guided by an aggressive neocon "regime change" strategy, the United States has stumbled into a potential military confrontation with Russia over Ukraine, a dangerous predicament that could become a Cuban Missile Crisis in reverse, as ex-U.S. diplomat William R. Polk explains.By William R. PolkIn a rather ghastly Nineteenth Century experiment, a biologist by the name of Heinzmann found that if he placed a frog in boiling water, the frog immediately leapt out but that if he placed the frog in tepid water and then gradually heated it, the frog stayed put until he was scalded to death.Are we like the frog? I see disturbing elements of that process today as we watch events unfold in the Ukraine confrontation. They profoundly frighten me and I believe they should frighten everyone. But they are so gradual that we do not see a specific moment in which we must jump or perish.So here briefly, let me lay out the process of the 1962 Cuban Missile Crisis and show how the process of that crisis compares with what we face today over the Ukraine.Three elements stand out in the Cuban Missile Crisis: 1) Relations between the USSR and the U.S. were already "on the edge" before they reached the crisis stage; each of us had huge numbers of weapons of mass destruction aimed at the other. 2) The USSR precipitated the Crisis by advancing into Cuba, a country the U.S. had considered part of its "area of dominance" since the promulgation of the 1823 Monroe Doctrine. 3) Some military and civilian officials and influential private citizens in both countries argued that the other side would "blink" if sufficient pressure was put on it.

Chicago activist: Local reporters intentionally didn't cover Homan Square "black site" --

Chicago reporters failed to cover a police "black site" where suspects were held without access to legal representation because they sided with the authorities, a local activist and criminologist told The Atlantic on Tuesday."I think that many crime reporters in Chicago have political views that are right in line with the police," Tracy Siska said. "They tend to agree about the tactics needed by the police. They tend to have by one extent or the other the same racist views of the police - a lot of urban police (not all of them by any stretch, but a lot of them) embody racism."Siska is the head of the Chicago Justice Project, a non-profit group that works toward improving police transparency in hopes of improving community relations.

Russia Would See U.S. Moves to Arm Ukraine as Declaration of War :: Business :: The Moscow Times

U.S. provision of military aid to Ukraine would be seen by Moscow as a declaration of war and spark a global escalation of Ukraine's separatist conflict, Russian defense analysts said.With Russia-backed rebels in eastern Ukraine seizing new territory from the Ukrainian army, voices in Washington are demanding that Kiev be given defensive weapons and hardware - including lethal equipment - to hold the line.But if such aid were sent, "Russia would reasonably consider the U.S. to be a direct participant in the conflict," said Evgeny Buzhinsky, a military expert at the Moscow-based PIR Center.Speaking to The Moscow Times on a condition of anonymity, a member of the Russian Defense Ministry's public advisory board warned that Moscow would not only up the ante in eastern Ukraine, "but also respond asymmetrically against Washington or its allies on other fronts."

30,000 troops, 6 rapid units: NATO increases military power in Eastern Europe

30,000 troops, 6 rapid units: NATO increases military power in Eastern Europe

The NATO Response Force in Europe might increase to 30,000 troops from the current 13,000, said the alliance' secretary general ahead of a defense ministers meeting in Brussels. Most of the RDF troops are set to be stationed near to Russia' borders."I expect that the ministers will agree on several important elements of a package that increases our collective defense," said Secretary-General Jens Stoltenberg on the eve of a meeting of the alliance' 28 defense ministers at NATO headquarters in Brussels.The UK has already announced plans to deploy 1,000 troops and four multirole Typhoon fighter jets to join the Response Force in Eastern Europe.The spearhead of that force will be 5,000 servicemen, distributed among six compact command centers in Eastern Europe, with about only 50 officers in each.

Merkel and Hollande on mission to avert 'total war' - Telegraph

 Europe's leaders were in last-ditch talks to broker a peace deal in Ukraine on Thursday night, as threats by America to send arms to Kiev raised fears of a direct confrontation between Russia and the West.Angela Merkel, the German chancellor, and François Hollande, the French president, began a two-day visit to Kiev and Moscow in an attempt to get both governments to sign a new ceasefire deal.The talks, which come amid an escalation in the fighting in eastern Ukraine, were an attempt by European capitals to head off moves by Washington to begin arming Ukrainian forces, who have so far been outgunned by the Kremlin-backed rebels.

World Awash in More Debt Than Before Financial Crisis / Sputnik International

Global debt has far outpaced economic growth since 2007, when the global credit bubble burst, causing the worst financial crisis since the Great Depression. As a result, the world is more burdened by debt today than it was eight years ago.Global debt has increased by $57 trillion since 2007 to almost $200 trillion, the Financial Times reported, citing a sobering report by McKinsey Global Institute. As a share of gross domestic product, debt has risen from 270% to 286%."Overall debt relative to gross domestic product is now higher in most nations than it was before the crisis," the report states. "Higher levels of debt pose questions about financial stability."

Israel attacks Hizbollah positions close to Golan Heights - Telegraph

An Israeli helicopter attacked Hizbollah positions close to the Golan Heights in Syria on Sunday, reportedly killing the son of the Lebanese Shia militant group' slain top commander Imad Mughniyeh.Jihad Mughniyeh died alongside four other members of the group, when his convoy was hit by a rocket, Lebanese sources said.Imad Mughniyeh was a top commander in Hizbollah' military intelligence branch, and on the United States' most wanted list for attacks on Israeli and Western targets.The death of Mughniyeh' son would be a symbolic coup for Israel, who - though they have never admitted it - is believed to have had a hand in the assassination of his father in Damascus in 2008.

It's 2 Weeks Into 2015, and One of the US's Closest Allies Has Already Beheaded 10 People - Mic

Last year, Saudi Arabia beheaded 90 people. The 10 in the first few weeks of 2015 is another indication that the wave of executions that began in August is not slowing down. This puts America in the perverse position of railing against the mass beheadings perpetrated by ISIS while quietly tolerating those committed by the House of Saud.Other recent victims of Saudi rule have included people imprisoned for dubious offenses ranging from criticizing Islam on Twitter to operating online forums. On occasion, the death sentence is used for charges like "sorcery."More:

They were puzzled to find instead, seasonal flu vaccination almost doubled the risk of infection with pandemic flu.

France is now arresting folks for social media posts. Just like in USSR when neighbors wrote to KGB

Paris attacks aftermath: French police arrest 54 people for 'defending or glorifying terrorism'At least 54 people have been detained by police in France for "defending or glorifying terrorism" in the wake of last week' attacks in Paris.Many of the arrests are believed to stem from comments made on Facebook, Twitter and social media as the world reacted to the atrocities.They are part of a broader French crackdown on perceived hate speech, extremism and anti-Semitism amid a government push for tougher anti-terrorism measures.


The FBI has arrested an Ohio man for allegedly plotting an ISIS-inspired attack on the U.S. Capitol, where he hoped to set off a series of bombs aimed at lawmakers, whom he allegedly considered enemies.Christopher Lee Cornell (aka Raheel Mahrus Ubaydah), 20, of Green Township, was arrested today on charges of attempting to kill a U.S. government official, authorities said.According to government documents, he allegedly planned to detonate pipe bombs at the national landmark and open fire on any employees and officials fleeing after the explosions.

Bird and fish kills becoming more frequent, biologists say -

Mass die-offs of birds, fish and invertebrates are on the rise, researchers at the University of California, Berkeley say. The trends were borne out the first ever quantitative analysis of large scale animal deaths. Scientists plotted 727 mass die-off events over the past 70 years, involving a total of some 2,500 species (some events feature more than one species).

"This is the first attempt to quantify patterns in the frequency, magnitude and cause of such mass kill events," said lead study author Stephanie Carlson, an associate professor at Berkeley's Department of Environmental Science, Policy and Management.

Ukraine Halts Trains and Buses to Russian-Held Crimea

Kiev, Ukraine:  Ukraine said on Friday it was suspending all rail and bus services to Russian-occupied Crimea because of security concerns.The decision came only 10 days after Russia decided to halt its own train service to the Black Sea peninsula due to low demand.The joint suspensions mean that most of the region's 2.3 million residents will only be able to reach Ukraine by car or cross into Russia to the east using an outdated ferry service.

Saudi Arabia Ready For $20, $30, $40 Oil :: Zero Hedge

In North America, efficiency is not really the name of the game. In 2013, US shale accounted for approximately 20 percent of world oil investment while supplying only 4 percent of global production - numbers Naimi would deem unworthy of a market share, even if that market is domestic. The side effects of oil' decline are less evident to date, but that is not to say they have been completely absent. Despite overall growth, the EIA has lowered its expectation for US production in 2015 by 100,000 bpd. Layoffs are already underway at Halliburton and more are expected elsewhere. In all, US exploration and production spending is projected to fall by more than 35 percent if WTI averages $65 per barrel or below into 2015.

While I believe we're both savvy professionals, fakers can slip through even the most discerning of filters.Since launching my blog on Forbes and on my own website, I've found myself immersed in a world of "experts" and information "gurus" - individuals who have worked tirelessly and often selflessly to master a particular field or area, and have vitally important information to share with the world.

The State Department acknowledged that the crew of the destroyer USS Donald Cook has been gravely demoralized ever since their vessel was flown over in the Black Sea by a Russian Sukhoi-24 (Su-24) fighter jet which carried neither bombs nor missiles but only an electronic warfare device. This video shows the USS Donald Cook sailing into the Black Sea to position itself near Russia’s territorial waters.On 10 April 2014, the USS Donald Cook entered the waters of the Black Sea and on 12 April a Russian Su-24 tactical bomber flew over the vessel triggering an incident that, according to several media reports, completely demoralized its crew, so much so that the Pentagon issued a protest [1].

Producers of oil from US shale are in this category, as are most oil exporters, including many of the OPEC countries and Russia.

Google X Is Developing a Disease Detection Device Similar to the ‘Star Trek’ Tricorder

by Glen Tickle


Google X Life Sciences, led by Andrew Conrad, is working on a disease-detection device similar to the Star Trek tricorder. The device would work by deploying specially designed nanoparticles into the body that interact with different markers for disease. These nanoparticles would signal a device that Conrad says would be worn on the wrist to catch diseases at the early stages, when they are most easily and successfully treated.

Conrad described the status of the project in great detail in an interview with Steven Levy of Backchannel, and predicts that the device will be a reality within five to ten years.

Embarrassing: Jimmy Kimmel Sends Out Camera Crew To Ask Dumbass Americans ‘Who Is Joe Biden?’

by Ayala Chaviva

I'm hoping for the country's sake that they had to go through thousands of people before they found these few.


Who is Joe Biden (other than the hardest-partying vice president in U.S. history, that is)? When a visit from the VP interfered with traffic near Jimmy Kimmel’s studio, he sent a reporter out to Hollywood Boulevard to find out what Americans really know about this Biden character.

Consensus: Biden is probably a man. A congressman. A senator. The governor. An actor. A Republican. Maybe a terrorist? Definitely not someone who would be friends with Barack Obama.

Forgotten vice president (is there any other kind?) Thomas Marshall, who served under Woodrow Wilson, is said to have told a story about two brothers: “One ran away to sea; the other was elected vice president of the United States. And nothing was heard of either of them again.”

It’s okay, Joe. You’ll always have the Summer of ’87.

In 2005, Congress assigned NASA the task of locating 90 percent of all near-Earth asteroids big enough to cause significant damage if they hit us by 2020. On Monday, a new NASA audit concluded that the agency is nowhere near meeting this goal.
