Bahrain: Prohibited Pictures (Arte documentary)

June 19th, 2012 No comments

Zainab (Twitter @zooz__zooz) quote:

The government in Bahrain does not care about the citizens. The leaders only care about their public image towards western countries. [...] Why should any government sell weapons to a dictatorship? Obama gives speeches about freedom and democracy. He claims to support the Arab spring and the Arab societies in their fight for freedom and democracy. But then he sells weapons to the dictators. People in Bahrain won’t care about his words when they are being shot by teargas that says “made in Pensilvania” on it.

Neo-imperial warlord

June 19th, 2012 No comments

The confessions of the current president of the united yankees should suffice to impeach him for crimes against humanity.
After given proof on the interventions in Afghanistan, Pakistan, the Stuxnet attack against Iran, the drone attacks, illegal renditions, illegal prisons, etc. – Here comes the newest, official statement on war action in Somalia and Yemen:

The U.S. military has been taking “direct action” against members of al-Qaida and affiliates in Yemen and Somalia.

[...]

“In a limited number of cases, the U.S. military has taken direct action in Somalia against members of al-Qaida, including those who are also members of al-Shabaab, who are engaged in efforts to carry out terrorist attacks against the United States and our interests,” it said.

EUGEN5 LSZH (cops at Zurich airport)

June 5th, 2012 No comments

On Planefinder one can see police and fire brigade objects like EUGEN11, EUGEN5, URSULA4 and GALA18 taxying along the run- and taxiways in LSZH at night.

Tower, EUGEN5 speaking, good morning. Can we access runway 28?

This is quite handy, as any attacker with a Smartphone can see, where the cops are located, which would ease access to the airport facility and the aircrafts … 8-)
*sigh* – What a misconception!

… they can even be tracked with the live and fully movable webcams of the airport. – And they actually should be audible on frequency as well!?
