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

The new Republican congress is opening today with a prayer and then they will read the ENTIRE Constitution aloud instead of getting to the business of running the nation... They might not like what they are reading... IF their reading comprehension is High School level or above. From here on all bills in the House will have to cite the Constitutional justification for the law. Not a bad idea, but liable to be nothing more than boilerplate after a while.

The Pentagon is sending 1,400 more Marines to the Southern areas of Afghanistan, most likely Helmand and Kandahar , but NOT to the North, where the CIA's Opium growing, smugglers-for-a-living friends and all-around-thugs, the Northern Alliance control the territory. More.

In Pakistan the Prime Minister caves in and rescinds the price increases on fuel which were threatening to take down the government. Whether the parliamentary coalition will continue to hold remains to be seen.

The Saudi press is reporting their government has captured a vulture with a band on it's leg holding a satellite linked transmitter. They claim it's part of an Israeli intelligence operation. Israel, and the band, say it's part of an Israeli university Vulture migration study.

The WikiLeaks 'wave' begins to wash up on American diplomatic shores. Our ambassador to Libya may be replaced over the 'tall blonde vivacious Ukrainian nurse who attends to Moammar Khadafy' gossip cable. That so-called diplomat has a name by the way... Gene Cretz. Meanwhile Julian Assange is STILL waiting for his deportation hearing in England.

In OTHER News...

Recently, my cohort Auntie Imperial posted:

Your Infrastructure Will Be Your Undoing - One Reason Why Natural Gas CANNOT Replace The 20% Of Coal-Fired Powerplants Due Offline By 2015
Even as America comes to depend more and more on Natural Gas for it's energy needs, and it WILL ramp up even more dramatically as that 20% of all coal-fired power plants, 50,000 MW of nation's dirtiest coal plants, begins to go offline due to EPA regulations, one can begin to see that flammable gases are MUCH more dangerous than the 'Bunker Fuels' and Coal traditionally used in power generation.
In the San Francisco Chronicle today, validation...
Feds put nation's pipeline operators on notice

Federal safety officials responding to the findings of the San Bruno disaster probe issued a nationwide bulletin Wednesday urging operators... of natural-gas pipelines to verify they have accurate records about their lines and to cut pressure on them if they don't.

The regulators took the unusual step in response to the discovery that Pacific Gas and Electric Co. had erroneous records about the high-pressure gas line that exploded in San Bruno in September, killing eight people and destroying 38 homes.

The revelation raised questions about whether the utility had set the line's maximum allowable operating pressure too high and whether it had used an inspection method for the pipe that was ill suited to detect some possible weaknesses... [Read more]

In Iraq, where there is almost NO Western news reporting anymore (92% drop in reports from 2007-2009... even less now), Shiite Cleric Moqtada al-Sadr Returns to Iraq:
Reaction to Mr. Sadr's arrival was largely muted inside his traditional bases of support in impoverished neighborhoods in Baghdad and the predominantly Shiite south. But his presence in Iraq, particularly if prolonged, is sure to present fresh challenges for both Baghdad and Washington as they prepare for the full withdrawal of U.S. forces...

U.S. military commanders accuse the military wing—previously known as the Mahdi Army and now rebranded as the Promised Day Brigades—of more recent attacks on U.S. installations in Iraq, notably with rockets supplied by Iran. Tehran has repeatedly denied these accusations.

U.S. officials say they want to ensure the cleric doesn't wield too much influence in the new government, by lobbying Mr. Maliki to keep Mr. Sadr's followers out of senior security posts. [More At The Wall Street Journal]

And for our next war... on Africa... the Pentagon and NATO will use the Afghanistan-Pakistan War model:
Washington and its NATO military allies have opened a war front across the Arabian Sea from Pakistan in the east to Somalia and Yemen in the west as the central focus of operations that began almost ten years ago. [1]

On October 1, 2008 the Pentagon formally launched its first overseas military command in the post-Cold War era, U.S. Africa Command, which takes in 53 nations and an entire continent except for Egypt, which remains in Central Command.

The second command’s area of responsibility reaches from the eastern border of Libya to the western border of China and southern border of Russia. From Egypt to Kazakhstan. The Horn of Africa region, including Somalia, was ceded by Central Command to Africa Command (AFRICOM), but the Arabian Peninsula, including Yemen, remains in Central Command.

Though the Pentagon’s Combined Joint Task Force – Horn of Africa, now subsumed under AFRICOM and based in the Horn of Africa nation of Djibouti, includes thirteen nations in East Africa, the Indian Ocean and the Arabian Peninsula in its area of operations: Comoros, Djibouti, Ethiopia, Eritrea, Kenya, Madagascar, Mauritius, Seychelles, Somalia, Sudan, Tanzania, Uganda and Yemen. Operation Enduring Freedom, under which the U.S. conducts its greater Afghan war, encompasses sixteen countries: Afghanistan, Pakistan, Uzbekistan, Cuba (Guantanamo Bay), Djibouti, Eritrea, Ethiopia, Jordan, Kenya, Kyrgyzstan, the Philippines, Seychelles, Sudan, Tajikistan, Turkey and Yemen.

The U.S. maintains at least 2,500 troops in Camp Lemonnier in Djibouti and in late 2009 deployed over 100 troops, Reaper unmanned aerial vehicles (drones) equipped for guided bombs and missiles and three P-3 Orion anti-submarine and maritime surveillance aircraft to Seychelles.

Washington was accused by Houthi rebels in the north of Yemen of participating with Saudi Arabia in deadly bombing raids against them in the northwestern province of Sa’ada in December of 2009. They stated American jet fighters launched 28 attacks in the province which included bombing the governor’s house and killing 120 people in one attack. [2]

Later in the same month the U.S. conducted cruise missile and air strikes with the use of cluster bombs in southern Yemen which killed over 60 civilians, mostly women and children. Another air strike was launched in March of 2010.

Leading American officials have demanded drone missile strikes in Yemen and several hundred U.S. special forces are deployed to the country.

The U.S. and its allies in NATO and the European Union are actively involved in the civil war in Somalia, across the Gulf of Aden from Yemen.

The Pentagon supported the Ethiopian invasion of the country in 2006 and launched two days of air strikes in January of the following year. In the autumn of 2009 U.S. special forces conducted a deadly helicopter gunship raid in southern Somalia.

The New Year in Somalia started with a fierce battle between foreign troops backing the Transitional Federal Government (TFG) and al-Shabaab rebels, resulting in at 15 dead and 25 wounded. Inhabitants of the Somali capital reported that “the Mogadishu sky turned red [and] kids were crying and had been unable to sleep as the crackling of machine guns and barrages rocked throughout the city.” [3] [More]
