"...the most significant revelations from the massive WikiLeaks document dump is the apparent extent of Iran’s nefarious role in Iraq. Remember how we were always being told that the Bush administration was exaggerating the extent of Iranian influence with the Shia militia groups in order to push along a neocon plot to attack Iran? Well, an initial reading of the documents conducted by the New York Times indicates there wasn’t much exaggeration at all.That doesn't fit the narrative, does it, Joe.
Come to think of it, none other than Vice President Joe Biden said as recently as August:
Iranian influence in Iraq is minimal. It’s been greatly exaggerated.(Emphasis mine.)
So exactly how does that statement square with this from the NYT?
The reports make it clear that the lethal contest between Iranian-backed militias and American forces continued after President Obama sought to open a diplomatic dialogue with Iran’s leaders and reaffirmed the agreement between the United States and Iraq to withdraw American troops from Iraq by the end of 2011."
"An Iraqi border patrol unit in Anbar province came across a group of smugglers – what they were smuggling is unclear – near the Syrian border in May 2009. When they gave pursuit, the Iraqi soldiers found themselves drawn into a gun battle with their western neighbours.[---]
5th division border guards chased some smugglers and exchanged gunfire. The smugglers returned back to Syrian territory and the Syrian forces supported them by using med and light weapons against the 5th division border guards.
In his recently-published memoirs, Tony Blair, the former British prime minister, claimed the Bush administration was close to invading Syria - in part because of its alleged support for the Iraqi militants. The leaked documents contain hundreds of references to Syria's role in Iraq, most of them suggesting a deep involvement with the armed groups."
"Syrian border guards were complicit in the smuggling of weapons and people across the border – and that they at times directly engaged the US and Iraqi forces."There's more:
"The leaked war logs reflect significant progress as well. There has been a dramatic improvement in security since the height of the violence in 2006-07, due to a weakened threat from al-Qaida and an Iraqi population weary of the sectarian bloodletting that once threatened to plunge the country into civil war.[---]
Even so, some experts question whether the fledgling military and police forces are capable of defending Iraq after Washington completes its scheduled pullout Dec. 31, 2011."
"(Ambassador Ryan) Crocker called it "profoundly important" that the U.S. maintain a military presence in Iraq beyond 2011, despite America's weariness with the long and costly war and pressure to shift more resources to Afghanistan."Ooops.
By late 2003, even the Bush White House’s staunchest defenders were starting to give up on the idea that there were weapons of mass destruction in Iraq.This game was played before, and it didn't work.
But for years afterward, WikiLeaks’ newly-released Iraq war documents reveal, U.S. troops continued to find chemical weapons labs, encounter insurgent specialists in toxins, and uncover weapons of mass destruction."
"The day I knew for sure there must be something good about Mr. Ford was the day Justin Trudeau, the son of the late prime minister and the MP for Papineau riding in Montreal, came flying in to give George Smitherman his stamp of approval and save Toronto “from the politics of fear and division,” as he put it.Best ass kicking I've seen in a long time.
Thank you for that, Mr. Trudeau. You may resume tossing your locks."
"It’s easy to understand that government financing of the news is at best unseemly and at worst totalitarian. The possibilities for corruption are myriad. I am not one to dwell on what the Founders intended, but I am reasonably certain they didn’t want a Fourth Estate that was bought and paid for by the government, even in part."I so hope that was an idea discussed at yesterday's meeting with Stockwell Day.There are more reasons than just belt tightening to cut CBC loose from the public teat.
"The stability of the Canadian financial system was one of Canada's assets during the global recession, and I was pleased to hear from a number of people at today's meeting who saw this first-hand," Minister Day continued. "Now we want to make sure that the Government's finances stay on the right side of the balance sheet to ensure Canada's sound economic position for the long term."I leave it up to you to draw your own conclusions, but let's just bear in mind that appointees to the CBC Board are made by the government and the date of Mr. Casgrain's appointment (2007) would make him a Conservative Party of Canada appointee. I'm not sure if appointments of the Chair, in particular, are made by the government, or if the person chosen to fill that position is something determined by the board members themselves.
"Permit me to preface my following comments with a few words to bear in mind while I vent: Somalia, Rwanda, Srebrenica, Kosovo, Darfur, Sierra Leone, North Korea, Iraq, Iran -- you get the picture."[---]
"They decided to call themselves the Permanent Five (Perm 5), agreed they would not fight each other in the future, gave themselves a veto over matters dealing with international peace and security that might draw them into a conflict -- and in the fine print, also over issues of procedure within the Security Council. In other words, they would decide who would share the seats in that hallowed chamber, for how long (two years seemed like a good solution before the upstart rotating members got too much influence) and how votes would be conducted, while they sat back with the ability to shut down any council decision with their almighty single veto.[---]
Did I just hear an echo, "Darfur" and a veto by China with its oil investments and operations in Sudan?
When the Berlin Wall came down in 1989, symbolizing the end of the Cold War, the Perm 5 were sound asleep in spite of warnings from commanders of UN peacekeeping missions in the field that the paradigm had changed and touchy-feely, lightly armed peacekeeping missions merely perpetuated various conflicts' status quo.
When one of their field commanders suggested that it was pointless calling the UN after 5 p.m. New York time as there was no one there to take the call at the decision-making level (unintentionally smearing the many UN staff working around the clock), the UN knee-jerk reaction was to establish a 24-7 "situation room" with absolutely no decision-making capability."
"Try as I might, no one at their headquarters in Manhattan could tell me how many Security Council meetings were called outside the cocktail hour at the UN during the past 65 years. In the absence of empirical evidence, I confidently assume I have enough fingers to count them.Wait a minute. Did he just say peacekeeping missions are useless? Don't tell that to our latte sipping "war is not the answer" - "Canada's proper role in the world is peacekeeping" crowd. They may have a emotional breakdown. God forbid, they may even spew their lattes and cocktails all over each other.
In the end, we owe Portugal a favour for wrestling that final inglorious seat from our hesitant hands. Fortunately, port trumps maple syrup."
"Gore invested the money with Capricorn Investment Group LLC, a Palo Alto, California, firm that selects the private funds for clients and invests in makers of environmentally friendly products, according to a Feb. 1 securities filing. Capricorn was founded by billionaire Jeffrey Skoll, former president of EBay Inc. and an executive producer of Gore's Oscar-winning documentary film on global warming." [---]
Since losing the 2000 presidential election to George W. Bush, Gore, 59, is best known for focusing attention on climate change through his book and movie, ``An Inconvenient Truth,'' which helped him win a Nobel Peace Prize.
"Gore donated his proceeds from the global-warming book and movie to his Alliance for Climate Protection, Kreider added."[---]
"In the last personal finance report he filed as vice president, Gore disclosed on May 22, 2000, that the value of his assets totaled between $780,000 and $1.9 million. In addition, Gore listed an interest in his father's estate that included Occidental Petroleum Corp. stock worth as much as $1 million."A man's gotta hedge his bets, I guess.
"We wanted to know what the former CBC CEO thinks of the Corp’s future and were surprised to hear him say that without a complete re-think about what the public broadcaster does, followed by massive changes, Mr. Rabinovitch (pictured) believes the CBC’s future appears pretty grim."[---]
"I’m concerned about the future of the CBC, deeply concerned. I think what happened this past week (Bell Canada’s purchase of CTV) is a game changer, and I really doubt that the CBC is going to be able to compete in the future. I think they’re going to lose all of their sports properties."[---]
"I think we’re at a point right now where we may have to ask ourselves the question about where is public broadcasting and why do we still have the public broadcaster?"[---]
"As it is, CBC Television is no more than 50% public broadcasting. The other 50% is based purely on revenue. Fifty percent of the revenue must come from ads, and ads only come from eyeballs; therefore you have to generate the eyeballs.[---]
And if you’re also going to lose sports now, you’re going to be even more challenged."
"And with the multiple choices that we have, if we’re not going to fund it well, then we have to ask ourselves why do we have this service. So that’s why I say I’m very concerned. I don’t see a real discussion occurring around “whither the CBC."And it seems even the Liberals couldn't care less. Read the whole thing. This guy is thinking outside the box. Something the CBC and their groupies sorely need to do. I say, if we can't find a reasonable alternative to public funding, then let the beast die. Keeping it on artificial life-support is pointless.

"It can be more lucrative to lead a native reserve in Canada than to run an entire province, according to newly-released federal records on First Nation salaries.[---]
The elected chiefs of at least 30 aboriginal communities were paid more than $110,000 — all of it tax free — in 2008/09. That's more than the average, after-tax income of $109,983, paid that same year to Canada's premiers, says the Canadian Taxpayers Federation.
For months, the federation has been lobbying the federal government to publicly disclose what aboriginal chiefs and band councillors are paid, in the name of improving accountability and transparency among reserve governments.
It recently received, under the access to information law, a list of salaries and honoraria paid in 2008/09 to the chiefs of more than 500 First Nations across Canada.
The highest individual salary in 2008/09 was $247,100, while 45 other unnamed chiefs earned at least $90,000.
But the records also reveal how little other chiefs are paid. More than 80 chiefs received less than $30,000 in salary that year, while five were paid no salary or honoraria at all."
"The Taxpayers' Federation says band chiefs and councillors are the only politicians in Canada whose pay levels are still kept secret. It says Ottawa should be required by law to publicly disclose all band salaries, regardless of whether the money comes from the government or from band-owned enterprises.Should have gone into the bitching and whining industry instead.
Saskatchewan Conservative MP Kelly Block has a private member's bill before Parliament aimed at making reserve governments more transparent. If passed, the bill would require the federal government to fully disclose the details of band salaries.
The bill is supported by the Canadian Taxpayers Federation, but opposed by the Assembly of First Nations, which represents the country's more than 600 band chiefs"
"William Connolley, arguably the world’s most influential global warming advocate after Al Gore, has lost his bully pulpit. Connolley did not wield his influence by the quality of his research or the force of his argument but through his administrative position at Wikipedia, the most popular reference source on the planet.LOL! The floodgates just keep widening and widening. It's almost Biblical.
Through his position, Connolley for years kept dissenting views on global warming out of Wikipedia, allowing only those that promoted the view that global warming represented a threat to mankind. As a result, Wikipedia became a leading source of global warming propaganda, with Connolley its chief propagandist.
His career as a global warming propagandist has now been stopped, following a unanimous verdict that came down today through an arbitration proceeding conducted by Wikipedia."
"The last 12 months have seen the most arrests and attacks of radical Islamists on Americans since 9/11. This was confirmed to Congress last month by Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano, who also finally acknowledged the growing homegrown threat of radical Muslims.[---]
Sadly, many of my co-religionists called on by media to speak for American Muslims too often wallow in denial simply deflecting any responsibility by distancing themselves from radicals or myopically equating Muslim radicals to those of other faiths. They willfully ignore the main ideological conveyor belt towards radicalism - political Islam."
"Most Americans no longer accept these detached irresponsible dismissals from leading American Muslims. They see so many examples of American Muslim clerics who condemn terror out of one side of their mouth while deceptively amplifying victimology, Islamophobia, anti-Americanism and morally vacant justifications from the other."Make that most Canadians, too.
"In our conversation at Drake University this week, I hope we focus on the fact that at the center of the growing threat to our national security is this battle within the House of Islam. American Muslims need to accept and spread the meme that it is time to get shariah (Islamic law) out of government and bring the ideas of modernity and Enlightenment to the Islamic faith we love.You got that right, Mr. Jasser, but as I said, I would go further. Your co-religionists have had nine years to get their act together, but the strategies they have used to date have had no impact whatsoever. It's time to take it up several notches, so here's some tips.
We need to take the offense in ending the ideas of jihad, the "ummah" as nation, and the "salafi" dream of returning everything to the time of the Prophet Muhammad. Until we Muslims take on the responsibility of separating history from religion and mosque from state, the threat will not dissipate."
"So let us not miss this opportunity to praise the Rt. Hon. Stephen Harper. He cost Canada a coveted seat on the UN Security Council, by refusing to sell out Israel. He withdrew our candidacy when it became apparent that the bloc vote of Arab and Islamic states (about a third of the UN membership) had been turned against us; thereby conceding the seat to Portugal, with her more flexible policy of moral appeasement."RTWT He minces no words for Ignatieff, either, and a whole slew of other shady characters and sums it up with a zinger of a conclusion.
"Mr Trudeau explained his actions in a televised statement.[---]
"Violent and fanatical men are attempting to destroy the unity and the freedom of Canada," he said, adding that he would not tolerate "intimidation and terror"."
"Meanwhile, Mr Trudeau came under severe criticism from his political foes. The Parti Quebecois leader accused Mr Trudeau of "a panicky and altogether excessive reaction", while the leader of Canada's third party, the left-leaning New Democratic Party (NDP), accused Prime Minister Trudeau of using "a sledgehammer to crack a peanut".[---]
But the public seemed to approve overwhelmingly of the tough approach.
Claude Belanger, a Quebec historian at Marianopolis College in Montreal, says that several polls at the time showed about 90% of Canadians - including those in Quebec - backed the measures."
"James Cross was released in exchange for Cuban exile for his kidnappers - led by Jacques Lanctot. They eventually returned to Canada, and served short prison sentences.Bring on Sun TV!!
Pierre Laporte's killers, led by Paul Rose, were found by police.
Rose and a fellow FLQ member were convicted of kidnapping and murder charges, with another member convicted of just kidnapping charges.
All were out of prison by the early 1980s. Now, all play roles in Quebec society as writers, film-makers and commentators."
"Since the crisis, separatists have sought, and failed, to achieve independence through two referenda - narrowly losing in the last one held in 1995.Somebody should tell that to Duceppe.
The appetite for an independent Quebec now seems on the wane.
Some 60% of Quebec residents feel the issue has been settled, according to a recent poll, while former separatist leader Lucien Bouchard recently admitted that independence was unachievable."
""Every 10 years there are news stories and each time it's a little more painful, each time the story changes," he told QMI Agency.
"They try to rewrite history, making the FLQ more acceptable, but in reality, they kidnapped a man and that man was my father."
One former FLQ member, now a prominent newspaper columnist in Quebec, is just one of many who have recast the violence 40 years ago in a softer light.
"We were responding to repression," Jacques Lanctot said in September. "We didn't want to kill anyone. We were radicals who wanted to wake the consciousness of Quebecers."
Laporte said that isn't a good argument.
"How can it be an accident when you kidnap someone? You're responsible," he said."
"In Mr. Trudeau, the separatists chose the wrong opponent. The prime minister would not easily be intimidated. He had a strong sense of the dramatic and the theatrical: in 1968 he showed his contempt for a howling separatist mob, standing virtually alone on a reviewing stand as other dignitaries fled a shower of rocks and bottles. Asked to put troops on the streets by Montreal's municipal authorities, he did. Determining that sympathy for the terrorists was spreading among Montreal's volatile student population, he acted to seize back the streets using the War Measures Act to arrest almost 500 people - anyone who could "get more than five people on a street corner," one observer quipped. The 500 were put on ice not for what they had done, but what they could do.Some day I might recount my experiences with Trudeaumania and my opinion of the man. It differs from the view held by most of my fellow right of centre Canucks, especially those from Western Canada. For years I've felt I must be the only person west of the Saskatchewan/Manitoba border who admired the man and I still do. One of the reasons for my dissenting opinion was his steely resolve in dealing the the FLQ crisis. But then again, I was only twenty-one years old, and like the vast majority of twenty-somethings during that era and all before and since, I was naive and starry-eyed. But, even now with my gray hair and perpetually aching bones, I still think he did the right thing. We need a man like him as our next Conservative Prime Minister.
The terrorists and their near sympathizers got the point. Radical separatist enthusiasm moved from frenzied to frozen. By the time the detainees were released, the moment had passed and the crisis was over. Better still, the moment for terror had passed.
Moderate opinion - the vast majority - was repulsed by the kidnappings and the murder of Mr. Laporte by his captors. Public opinion craved a leader who would stand firm, and in Trudeau Quebecers and Canadians found the man of the hour."
"The commander of U.S. and NATO forces in Afghanistan says NATO has facilitated the safe passage of Taliban leaders to Kabul for talks with the Afghan government"Cjunk draws the clear distinction between Taliban Jack's bankrupt idea and what is currently happening.
"Afghanistan is facing its bloodiest year since the US-led invasion of 2001.[---]
During his address to a defence think tank, Gen Petraeus said there were "several ongoing initiatives" to try to get the Taliban to the negotiating table"
"Painting an upbeat picture, Gen Petraeus also said Kabul was now a secure place to live; education and literacy had surged; and businesses were thriving while people were returning to Afghanistan."Or just another example of hudna?
"German born chemist, Dr Klaus L. E. Kaiser has published evidence that proves the Royal Society (RS), London, has been caught out making schoolboy errors in mathematical calculations over the duration of carbon dioxide (CO2) in Earth’s atmosphere. Backed up by a review by a leading Swedish mathematics professor the revelation is a serious embarrassment to the credibility of the once revered British science institute and a major setback for its claims about climate change.[Emphasis mine]
A gaffe in their own basic calculations led the RS to falsely find that CO2 would stay in the atmosphere for thousands of years rather than a dozen or so as per peer-reviewed studies show. Global warming skeptics have been quick to condemn the error and demand an apology and immediate correction."
"Che Guevara had Fidel Castro to help build the falsely romantic image sanctioned by leftists and dirty hippies all over the world and Louis Riel has the modern Metis movement which bridges on the spiritual making both characters handy artifacts of symbolic breeding emotionality with the end resultant being a whitewashed history.

"Imagine if a leader within the tea party movement were able to persuade its members to establish a third political party. Imagine he succeeded—overwhelmingly—and that as their leader he stood a real chance of winning the presidency. Then imagine that in anticipation of his electoral victory, the Democrats and Republicans quickly modified an existing antidiscrimination law so that he could be convicted for statements he made on the campaign trail.[---]
All of this seems impossible in a 21st-century liberal democracy. But it is exactly what is happening in Holland to Dutch parliamentarian Geert Wilders.
"But since splitting from the Liberal Party six years ago, his star has only risen. In the national elections held in November 2006, his party won nine seats in parliament. When the Dutch government fell again this year, June elections saw his party take 24 seats in the 150-seat body.[---]
This has spooked Dutch parliamentarians, particularly those wedded to multiculturalism. That's why, in the fall of 2009, they modified Article 137C and 137D of the Penal Code to make it possible for far-left organizations to take Mr. Wilders to court on grounds of "inciting hatred" against Muslims."
"Historically, the Netherlands has insisted on the idea of "consensus." Though on paper this means compromise, in practice it has meant conformity of thought and a refusal to rock the boat on controversial issues."[---]
"The bill used to prosecute Mr. Wilders is the national version of what OIC diplomats peddle at the U.N. and EU."Wow! This is dirtier than I thought, and that says a lot. Read the whole thing and note the parallels with our Human Rights Commissions. Scary, scary, scary.
"The English Defence League, a far-right grouping aimed at combating the "Islamification" of British cities, has developed strong links with the American Tea Party movement.According to the article, Geller is bringing "Islamophobia to the Tea Party Movement". It's a "progressive's" worst nightmare, I tells ya'.
An Observer investigation has established that the EDL has made contact with anti-jihad groups within the Tea Party organisation and has invited a senior US rabbi and Tea Party activist to London this month. Rabbi Nachum Shifren, a regular speaker at Tea Party conventions, will speak about Sharia law and also discuss funding issues.
The league has also developed links with Pamela Geller, who was influential in the protests against plans to build an Islamic cultural centre near Ground Zero. Geller, darling of the Tea Party's growing anti-Islamic wing, is advocating an alliance with the EDL. The executive director of the Stop Islamisation of America organisation, she recently met EDL leaders in New York and has defended the group's actions, despite a recent violent march in Bradford."
"The EDL's website relaunched briefly last week with new US links. Currently shut down for "maintenance", the site featured prominent links to a site called Atlas Shrugs, which is run by Geller [ED. in my blogroll, btw], and another US-based site, Jihad Watch, which compiles negative news coverage of Islamic militancy."Riiiight. Why doesn't that wascally Jihad Watch website look for positive news coverage of Islamic militancy. Obviously, they are consumed with irrational Islamophobia.
"Another Tea Party-associated grouping, the International Civil Liberties Alliance, which campaigns against Sharia law, confirmed that EDL leaders have made "contacts with members of important organisations within the American counter-jihad movement". A statement said: "It seems now that America and Europe are acting as one, and united we can never fail."Yup. The leftie elites are running scared and the more they throw their scatter shot in all directions, the less effective they'll be.
With the Tea Party said to benefit from millions of dollars of funding from conservative foundations, experts warn an alliance between the EDL and extremist elements within the US movement could allow the English group to invest in wider recruitment and activism."

"Make no mistake about it: this was an MSM production, and its target audience — politically correct middle- and upper middle-class British viewers — received it as intended, as a put-down of those benighted, atavistic, racist, nationalistic proles. The use of Enoch Powell as an iconic inspiration is proof of this fact — I remember quite clearly how Mr. Powell was reviled and ostracized for his “Rivers of Blood” speech. My cohort, the generation whose apparatchiks now control the levers of state, media, and social power, regard Enoch Powell as an emblem of racist fascism, a worthy heir to Sir Oswald Mosley.[---]
But, as with so many MSM efforts, the real message gets through, despite the producers’ intentions. The writers, producers, actors, and target audience are deaf to the underlying significance behind what they portray, yet an ordinary Englishman experiences a thrill of recognition, and is heartened by it. The self-appointed guardians of multiculture may not realize it, but Enoch Powell is admired and respected by the EDL and other modern English nationalists. His presence in the TV program sends a totally different signal from what was intended."
"The truth of what the EDL is doing is all but impossible to convey via the MSM. The media will hide the vile behavior of Muslims, and will choose its sound bites from the EDL (or its UAF infiltrators, who provide the best material) in such a way that the “racist” and “fascist” meme will come through loud and clear to the intended audience.It's funny, or maybe not funny, but I get the same feeling every time I visit a CBC website where comments are allowed. The vast majority of commenters are uber-liberal elites who look down their noses at those who hold contrary views, yet the vilest comments, those that come the closest to visceral hatred and bigotry, are invariably from the uber-liberals and they never fail to reveal complete and utter ignorance of the positions of those whom they oppose. Same goes for the two clowns at Jay Currie's place.
If the EDL’s message is to be successfully spread, it must do so despite what the media oligarchs intend. It can sneak in through vehicles such as the “I am an Englishman” clip, or be conveyed via entirely different means, such as internet forums and social networking sites."
"When the actor tells the audience that “we were never asked”, who were “they” who never did the asking?And now we know why Murray Dobbin and so many of the MSM groupies, CBC's especially, are so dead against the new Sun TV. THEY WILL NOT BE ABLE TO CONTROL THE OFFICIAL MEME ANY MORE!!!! Funny that this should happen so soon after the 10:10 video fiasco. Even when they try, it will flop.
The social context of the clip — the accent, the Bermondsey background, the use of Enoch Powell — convey the clear message that this is a conflict between the classes. “They” were the upper and upper middle classes, and they foisted upon “us”, the lower classes, the immigration which has destroyed us.
But this is not true. The meme is false.
Much of the destruction of modern Britain was carried out by the post-war Labour Party, many of whose leaders were thoroughly working class. It was a bolshie operation, and immigration was an integral part of the plan, because it helped destroy the “bourgeois” culture which they so detested.
The Marxist strategy has always been to destroy those things that the English nation — or any nation — holds dear. Tradition, custom, culture, religion, history, a distinctive language and dialect — all of these had to be deconstructed in order that the New Socialist Man could be constructed and usher in the Utopia."

"Alberta's lone NDP Member of Parliament is speaking out against Canada's Prime Minister over the election-style remarks he made while speaking to supporters in Edmonton.[---]
When Stephen Harper addressed hundreds of people on Friday night at a local hotel, he argued the country will see a coalition government if the Conservatives aren't elected as the majority in the next election.
He also took direct aim at Linda Duncan's seat in Edmonton-Strathcona, saying his party is determined to win back the riding."
""The next election is going to be a choice…When the next election does come the entire future of this country is at stake… Let's be blunt: A far left coalition's only priority seems to be shutting down Alberta energy industry and putting thousands of Albertans out of work.""[---]
"While both the Harper government and opposition leaders say no election is on the horizon, those who heard about the Prime Minister's comments have their doubts.But as I said before, I'm predicting spring. It might be a bit too late now for a fall election and besides, they have to get their act together and implement some of those long-overdue policy initiatives and election promises and things Canadians have been clamouring for, whether promised in the last election, or not, such as killing section 13 --- NOW --- if they want us to give them a majority. If, on the other hand, they do call an election now for sometime in late November, they may just be history. They've pissed off too much of their base.
"The whole tone of his speech was campaign style," said local John Hunka.
"The way he was talking [Friday] night, it's gonna happen."
