In The News:

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

» The Senate went ahead 74-26 and passed the debt limit bill and then they went home to explain to their constituents why they left the FAA without a budget and appropriations to run the federal government for next year undone along with ANOTHER crisis.

Ezra Klein @ the Washington Post's WonkBook:
The primary problem the debt deal will solve was a problem Congress had created for itself. But perhaps there was some relief in concocting a crisis we could actually solve. Because now that it's done and we have almost finished pating(sic) ourselves on the back for, as the Onion put it, achieving "the not-so-great things that can happen in Washington when both parties barely come together and agree to not really accomplish anything," we're left with the problems we do have, and can't seem to solve. We're left with the jobs crisis.[More]
» In Syria the government continues to attack the city of Hama among other places with foreign fighters coming into the country to assist the rebels and reports of Iraqi supplied weapons in rebel hands. There has been footage released of Syrian rebels killing alleged government intelligence agents and throwing them in a river. If you're waiting for Arab League intervention, don't hold your breath. The same at the UN where China is threatening a veto.

Equal time... In case you've been watching in disgust or horror as Syria attempts to quell a rebellion in their country (Which many people say is Western fomented) using military troops... They're not the only ones.

But the other country you aren't hearing about is an ostensible US ally:
At least 11 more people have been killed in the past 24 hours in Karachi, and the paramilitary Frontier Corps have been given police powers in the city to help stamp out violence, powers already granted to the paramilitary Rangers (Dawn, AFP, ET, DT, Dawn, NYT, AJE, Dawn, Tel). The Tribune reports that the Rangers appear to be gearing up for an offensive to clear certain areas in Karachi, while Muttahida Qaumi Movement (MQM) head Altaf Hussein said Tuesday that the attacks could become a "massacre or ethnic cleansing" (ET, ET, Dawn, DT). Violence has also reportedly broken out in the Surjani area of Karachi between ethnic Pashtuns and and ethnic Seraikis (ET). [In Full with links @ Foreign Policy]
» US air strikes have killed forty civilians in Yemen with al-Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula beginning to consider a move towards the cities.

Speaking of air strikes...

Secretary of Defense Leon Panetta... Charges: Conspiracy to commit first degree murder and reckless endangerment:
"The AP has a must-read detailing the strain caused by the timing of U.S. drone strikes in Pakistan, not just between the United States and Pakistan, but also between the CIA, who carry out the strikes, and the U.S. State Department (AP).

The report tells the story of a frantic call from U.S. ambassador to Islamabad Cameron Munter, who must approve all drone strikes, to the CIA in an attempt to avert an imminent strike on March 17. That attack took place a day after CIA contractor Raymond Davis was freed from Pakistani custody, but CIA director Leon Panetta reportedly overruled Munter.

An anonymous official said the strike, which Pakistan alleges killed up to 38 civilians, went forward because, "[the attack] was in retaliation for Davis...The CIA was angry." [Also @ Foreign Policy]
» Remember the fellow who threw the pie at Rupert Murdoch during the British Parliamentary hearings on News of the World's hacking into a murdered girls email account and voicemails? He just received a 60 day sentence... Light by US standards.

» President Obama's birthday party happens tonight in Chicago. It will be a fundraiser as well. Expect 'stars with wallets' and the rest of the political paparazzi

» When one considers that soldiers (at least in Iraq) are REQUIRED to turn their laundry over to KBR for washing at $100 dollars a load, this is not that surprising... The US military is spending $479,000 per person placed in service around the world. That's almost a half million dollars per soldier.

In OTHER News:

From Foreign Policy in Focus A CIA "officer" stationed in Kabul solves the foreign policy half of the US debt dilemma...
Now that we’ve averted default, I’m no longer worried about immediately losing my job, being stranded in Kabul without a ticket home, or having the Chinese repossess my house. I am worried, however, about the future of our empire. Thanks to the Agency, I’ve been able to travel the world, meet thousands of interesting people, and help subvert their governments. It would be a shame if the next generation of young Americans can’t have the same opportunities I had. [In Full]
Your lifestyle is not only killing YOU... It destroys your baby's health before it ever leaves the womb:
"A study by US researchers claims pregnant women with high exposure to magnetic energy generated by electrical items such as hair dryers, microwaves and vacuum cleaners have a bigger risk of asthma in their children. [In Full, Sydney Morning Herald]

"A properly functioning system of indoctrination has a variety of tasks. Its primary target are the 'stupid and ignorant masses'. They must be kept that way; marginalized, and isolated. Ideally, each person should be alone in front of the TV screen watching sports, soap operas, or comedies, deprived of organizational structures that permit individuals lacking resources to discover what they think and believe in, to engage in interaction with others, to formulate their own concerns and programs, and to act to realize them.

This hapless multitude are the proper targets of the mass media and a public education system geared to obedience and training in needed skills, including the skill of repeating patriotic slogans on timely occasions." ~~Noam Chomsky

This is Razer Raygun saying 'Happy Motoring America...' Enjoy it while you can.


(And PLEASE try to keep your government from killing all the dusky natives...)
