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

[After the commentary... The days AFTER 9/11, in Afghanistan... Rivers of Dub, American Psychosis (Symptom One), Asian Dub Foundation remixed by DJ Spooky (AKA That Subliminal Kid), Adbusters- Live Without Dead Time. Courtesy of the respective artists.]
» It's just about time for the UN General Assembly to hear from president Obama while the US is in the spotlight because it is most likely to be the veto-ing nation in the Security Council for the upcoming Palestinian statehood vote which will totally fubar any influence the US has in the region. Details.

» The IMF has said the US economic growth rate will be down a significant amount over the next few years even as Standards & Poors reduces Italy's credit rating which will make it even harder for the EU nations to assist Italy's ailing economy with loans. Meanwhile, the EU banks are intending to dump their holdings in US dollars on Italy and other nations in need of a bailout, and replace that currency with some other currency.

» In Slovenia the opposition parties in Parliament have issued a press release claiming they are in the process of a coup against the sitting government.

» Aghanistan's president Hamid Karzai flew into New York for a one hour meeting with president Obama and immediately flew back to Kabul after yesterday's assassination of Former Afghanistan "president" and Northern Alliance (Drug smuggling thugs) liaison Berhanuddin Rabbani, which is reverberating across the region and the US foreign policy apparatus in the AfPak theatre. More, and much more in the commentary. Read the Foreign Policy piece below and listen to the commentary for details on the unraveling of any chance for peace with the West, with the West's vested interests in place.
Former anti-Soviet commander, Afghan president, and head of the country's High Peace Council (HPC) Berhanuddin Rabbani was killed yesterday in his Kabul home by a suicide bomber who detonated explosives hidden in his turban when the two went to embrace (NYT, Post, LAT, BBC, AJE, Tel, WSJ, FT, ET, DT, CNN, Reuters). Rabbani's killer, a man identified as Esmatullah who first contacted former Taliban official and HPC member Rahmatullah Wahidyar, reportedly waited for days to meet with Rabbani, after telling officials that he bore a message from Taliban leader Mullah Omar's Quetta Shura (NYT, AP). The attack, which also wounded Wahidyar and senior HPC member Mohammad Masoom Stanekzai, has not yet been claimed, though many in Afghanistan and the United States have been quick to suggest the involvement of the Taliban or Haqqani Network (NYT). Bonus read: Anand Gopal, "Rabbani's death and Afghanistan's future" (FP).

Hundreds of mourners turned out Wednesday in Kabul to remember Rabbani, a controversial figure and former head of the anti-Taliban Northern Alliance who had nonetheless gained some credibility for his efforts in the past year to make peace (Tel, AFP, Reuters, NYT, AP, Independent, Tel). Afghan President Hamid Karzai, U.S. President Barack Obama, and other world leaders condemned the attack, and promised to press forward with efforts to obtain a peace deal even as Rabbani's former Northern Alliance partners warned against any arrangement with the Taliban, the prospects for which have been dealt a serious blow with Rabbani's death (NYT, BBC, Reuters, LAT, CNN, Tel, Guardian).

Also today, a new Government Accountability Office report has found that between 2006 and 2010, the United States and other donors paid for 90 percent of Afghanistan's public expenditures (Post). And the AP reports that serious combat wounds, including multiple amputations and genital injuries, are on the rise in Afghanistan, even as rates of combat deaths decline (AP).

» Attorney General Holder again pledges to close our Guantanamo concentration camp but there's still no plan on what to do with the 170+ remaining prisoners, mostly Yemenis who have been charged with nothing.

» Hopefully, by the time you read this, the two UC Berkeley hikers imprisoned in Iran should be free. Their bail has been paid, and everyone is just waiting for someone to go unlock their cell so a Swiss diplomat can escort them to the airport for their return home.


Pakistan's first-ever break dancing competition opened this weekend in Karachi, as eight teams of five dancers each battled for the title spot (ET). The competition's organizers whittled the teams down from nearly 200 people who auditioned for a spot in the contest in July. (source)

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

Remember... Capitalism is holding a loaded gun...

...And the target is ANYONE who gets in the way of their profits.
