In Today's News... Da' Buffalo has posted an important service related note at the bottom of today's synopsis. Please read it.

President Obama spins the news cycle his way after making headlines saying that the North Korean's nuclear weapons test over the weekend is cause for "grave concern" and says "The United States and the international community must take action in response,".

The president went on to keep his choke hold on the media by announcing he's nominated a Puerto Rican woman, Sonia Sotomayor, for Supreme Court justice who at one point in her life lived in 'the projects' and went on to be a federal appeals court judge. Her "Creds", from CNN.

More court... The California Supreme Court is about to announce it's decision on Proposition 8, the Gay Marriage proposition.

But it's notable that the walls are coming down on THAT 'closet' if you are a US diplomat, and you're Gay. Hillary Clinton says your significant other is going to be covered by your health care program etc.

The president of Pakistan says he's going to call off the military offensive in Waziristan despite the fact that the 'best' US intel says that's where "Al Qaeda's stronghold" is and there are refugees streaming out of the region despite the supposed lack of military activity. (Personally, THIS Buffalo thinks all one would have to do is hang out at the back gate of CIAHQ @ Langley Virginia for a sighting of Usama bin-hidin'.)

There are approximately 2.4 million refugees in Pakistan now according to the UN, and counting, due to the military offensives in Swat and other areas of the country.

Juan Cole @ Informed Comment with more:
The massive military operation in the midst of a populated area has now displaced 2.3 million persons, according to the UN.

Dawn editorializes that the displaced persons situation threatens the economy of the North-West Frontier Province, insofar as the military operation has kept farmers from harvesting their crops and therefore left them with no money to buy seed and equipment for putting in next year's crop.

Aljazeera English reports on the hardships of Swat refugees living in tents in 115 degrees F. [In Full with Linkage]

NASA's new administrator Charles Bolden, Jr. has military and aerospace experience as a pilot and astronaut compared to all previous administrators who had been political or sciences discipline related... and he's African-American.

Oh, and HERE'S an interesting note for the Fascism Watchers of America out there... US Army Colonel Ralph Peters threatens the US media with war (or MAYBE it a threat to sic the remnant's of Big Dick Cheney's JSOC assassination squad Seymour Hersh spoke of on the WaPo's and NYT's foreign affairs desk personnel) in an article written for JINSA.

JINSA is the Israeli-US interface of their joined-at-the-hips-and-brain military industrial complex... as Wikipedia describes PART of their agenda "Support for joint U.S.-Israeli training and weapons development programs.". In other words, they're The people who are embedded in the US military R&D/procurement apparatus who see to it that America's latest 'toys of annihilation' fit launchers and jet fighters that have their nomenclature and documentation in Hebrew.

Colonel Peters said:
"Although it seems unthinkable now, future wars may require censorship, news blackouts and, ultimately, military attacks on the partisan media. Perceiving themselves as superior beings, journalists have positioned themselves as protected-species combatants. But freedom of the press stops when its abuse kills our soldiers and strengthens our enemies. Such a view arouses disdain today, but a media establishment that has forgotten any sense of sober patriotism may find that it has become tomorrow’s conventional wisdom." [In Full]

"Razed By Wolves" will continue, and some postings from MBRH will be reposted (the popular ones according to current sitemeter stats). When Da' Buffalo returns, Razed By Wolves will be mirroring the Cabale News Service postings at archive.org, but expect at least a week to a month before that occurs. Until then, if your work hours or time zone of residence doesn't allow you to 'listen live', KPIG has recently put a player for Travus T. Hipp's Cabale News Service commentaries on their front page. Here's a direct link to the player.
