In The News:
Thanks this morning to ChrisM, my MP3Angel, for supplying the news & commentary audio files.

They've begun pumping mud into the Macondo/Deepwater Horizon well and apparently the 'static kill' is working and the energy advisor to president Obama has said that 70% of the spill has dissipated. There STILL a mess to clean up all over the Gulf of Mexico, even if true.

President Obama froze the pay of appointed federal employees yesterday. It's expected to save a meager $6.9 million in the next year and it will affect about 2,000 people.

In the Himalayas the US military is sending helicopters into the areas of Northern Pakistan hit by flooding for evacuation and disaster relief

In Kashmir, the funerals of people killed by Indian troops firing into crowds has turned into riots of their own.

Sen Kerry, chair of the Senate Foreign Affairs committee has postponed hearings on the Strategic Arms Limitation Treaty (SALT) ratification and in another committee, the Energy bill is on hold due to contention over Cap and Trade and other issues.

A federal district court in Sacramento California will make it's decision today on the same-sex marriage ban, proposition 8. It will undoubtedly move to federal appeals court, and then the Supreme court.

Finally, a bit more on the U.S. "Withdrawal from Iraq" and the much parroted statement: "President Obama reaffirmed on Monday that the US would have all combat troops out of Iraq by the end of August,"
"Obama did not say that all the combat troops were leaving (Iraq) this month. He certainly didn’t say this yesterday, and to my knowledge he has never said it."
The six units are thought to be:

• 4th Infantry Brigade Combat Team, 3rd Infantry Division
• 2nd Brigade Combat Team, 25th Infantry Division
• 3rd Armored Cavalry Regiment
• 4th Brigade Combat Team, 1st Cavalry Division
• 1st Heavy Brigade Combat Team, 3rd Infantry Division
• 4th Brigade, 1st Armored Div

I’m going to be just a bit repetitive and say this as clearly as possible—just in case any journalist comes slumming through FDL and actually reads this. Here goes:

Each of these units will be in Iraq after 8/31/10, and each will be as fully combat-capable as any brigade combat team or armored cavalry regiment currently in Iraq. They have all the guns, bombs, rockets, tanks and artillery required to pound the living crap out of anything or anybody they choose.

For any journalists who haven’t left to write about how some people think Amanpour is probably a taliban sympathizer, here is the DOD press release from October of last year announcing four of the above units for deployment. They’re described by DOD very clearly as “combat brigade teams”—because that’s what they are—but also listing them as “advise and assist brigades”. [In Full]

But it's NOT over... They are coming for your children, for their next illegitimate war, and your children are learning to resist, thanks to organizations like We Are NOT Your Soldiers!:
War is terrorism. Soldiers are not heroes. Presidents are not saviors. A powerful call to action, to move from ritualized 'protests' to sustained rebellion. Filmed at UC Santa Barbara on May 7, 2010. Thanks to Emma Kaplan and Matthis Chiroux.
End. the. Wars.
