Saudi's :: succession gossip

Saudi king’s trip to US for medical treatment heightens kingdom succession gossip

His majesty, King Abdullah of Saudi Arabia, aka Khadim al-Haramayn (Servant of the Two Holy Places but his sycophants insist on calling him “Custodian”) is not well. In fact, so unwell that he had to be taken in wheelchair to a fully equipped luxury-fitted 747 Jumbo Jet before being flown to the US on November 22 (seeyoutube below). His majesty is fond of horses but unlike his mercurial colonel cousin of North Africa, who takes a bevy of lady bodyguards, tents and a few camels whose milk he cherishes because it fortifies him better than cow’s milk, did not take any horses onboard. At least we were not informed.

The government-owned and controlled Saudi media reported that he went for treatment for “back ailment” and a blood clot. The latter is serious and could lead to stroke or heart attack. It must have been so serious that his majesty could not be treated in the kingdom that never fails to boast about its health services or medical facilities but even at 87, his majesty does not trust Saudi doctors. Why risk your life in the hands of Saudi doctors that cannot even administer a flu vaccine without rupturing a person’s veins, especially when your time is so close to the end. The king is truly wise!

Wikileaks founder Assange bailed, but release delayed

Julian Assange in his prison van en route to court (pic: Dec 14)Julian Assange was photographed inside a prison van on his way to court

The founder of whistle-blowing website Wikileaks, Julian Assange, has been granted bail in London on conditions including cash guarantees of £240,000.
But he will remain in prison pending an appeal against the bail decision lodged by Swedish prosecutors.
Mr Assange is fighting extradition to Sweden, where he is accused of sexually assaulting two women earlier this year.
He denies the charges, which he says are politically motivated and designed to discredit him.

BBC News | 14 December 2010 - read full post :

The BBC news stated comments that hail the British legal systems such as :

1. Following the bail decision, human rights activist Bianca Jagger said: "I was very pleased with what happened and I am glad that due process has taken place. I trust the British legal system and I hope justice will be done."

2 - Author Yvonne Ridley said: "It is a victory for common sense. If he had been refused bail, it would have meant the court had become a political arena."

What should also be noted too is the punch line, cited below which is like a close or conclusion to the whole news,  which reads :-

The latest release, published by the Guardian newspaper, shows that the US had concerns after the 7 July bombings that the UK was not doing enough to tackle home-grown extremists.

The history of US leaks :

Richard Nixon resigningPerhaps the US's most famous leak led to Nixon's demise

Related stories

The publication of a slew of documents relating to the war in Afghanistan represents one of the largest ever leaks, but what role has illicit information played in US politics?
Perhaps the most famous political scandal in US history also represents the most notorious leak.
The supply of information that "Deep Throat" - later revealed to be FBI deputy director Mark Felt - provided led reporters Bob Woodward and Carl Bernstein to uncover the Watergate scandal.
Without the illicit information it is hard to imagine the full extent of the cover-up over the burglary of the Democratic National Committee offices would have come to light, or that President Richard Nixon would have been forced to resign.
The Pentagon Papers was another leak that had a major impact.
A study of the US military's role in Vietnam (formerly Indochina) from 1945 to 1967, they were supplied to a New York Times journalist in 1971.
The publication, which the Nixon administration tried to stop, revealed details about the way the war had been escalated which seemed to contradict what the public had been told by the previous administration of President Lyndon Johnson.
Indeed, many leaks originate in the world of the military or intelligence, where whistleblowers justify the release of sensitive documents by arguing that their classified status would mean wrongdoing might not be revealed.

Empty Words: US human rights

62 years ago, the United Nations adopted its Universal Declaration of Human Rights, making today, International Human Rights Day. America's first lady at the time, Eleanor Roosevelt helped inspire the 1948 agreement. A global pledge critics say the US is failing to follow.

RussiaToday | December 11, 2010 - Events across America to mark Human Rights Day were designed to underline the country's perception of itself, as a leading light on protecting freedom. But some of the country's activists are not convinced. And recent UN criticism is leaving Washington battling to restore its reputation on rights. Marina Portnaya reports.

Christmas toy market faces China crisis.

China Toys and Uighurs.

It's November, and by mid-afternoon London's streets are already shrouded in autumnal twilight. There's a bitter chill in the air.

Yet the city's shopping districts are brightly lit, colourfully decorated and thronging with people. Christmas may be more than a month away, but in the slightly surreal world of seasonal retailing, it's here already.

But this year, the risk of a toy shortage is higher than ever. And this time, the reason lies in China, where a large proportion of the toys sold in Europe and North America are made.

Most of China's toy factories are based in the south of the country, in southern coastal areas such as Guangzhou, Shenzhen and Zhuhai.

In the past, these factories have relied on a steady, and cheap, supply of migrant labour from poorer parts of the country where work has been less readily available.

Now, though, the supply is drying up. The government in Beijing has been investing huge sums recently to promote development in inland regions.

Wikileaks defended by Anonymous hacktivists .

Internet hacktivists have fired the latest salvo in the Wikileaks infowar.

A group called Anonymous has hit sites that have refused to do business with the controversial whistle-blowing site with a series of distributed denial-of-service attacks.

It mirrors similar attacks aimed at the Wikileaks site.

Targets include the Swiss bank that froze founder Julian Assange's (pic) assets and PayPal which has stopped processing donations to Wikileaks.

Anonymous is a loose-knit group of hacktivists, with links to the notorious message board 4chan.

"We feel that Wikileaks has become more than just about leaking of documents, it has become a war ground, the people vs. the government,"

194 Countries will participate in Cancun Climate Submit

Global warming tops Cancun summit:

1. America has not even signed the 1997 Kyoto Protocal.
2. Advance countries failed to honour last year's Copenhagen financial undertaking.

AlJazeeraEnglish | November 29, 2010 - Experts believe 2010's severe weather changes hit the poorest communities around the world hardest. This is further evidence of the devastating effects of global warming.

The Cancun UN climate summit will seek a commitment to keep global carbon dioxide emissions low, after the failure in the last climate meeting in Copenhagen.

Though the challenges remain the same there are those who question whether the Cancun summit can combine mapping out a global vision on how to deal with climate change along with finding ways to pay for it.

RussiaToday | October 19, 2010 - Masked youths clashed with police and set fires in cities across France on Tuesday as protests against a proposed hike in the retirement age took an increasingly radical turn. President Nicolas Sarkozy pledged to crack down on "troublemakers" and guarantee public order, raising the possibility of more confrontations with young rioters after a week of disruptive but largely nonviolent demonstrations. More than 200 protests and one-day strikes by workers in sectors across the French economy were planned around the country over a bill raising the retirement age to 62. In many cities, protesters were being joined by young people who appeared to be seizing an opportunity to lash out at police. Protests turned violent in the central city of Lyon, where rioters smashed several store windows and torched rubbish bins and cars. Police used tear gas in an attempt to disperse trouble makers.

NORTHAMPTON — Authorities dragged the short woman with white hair out of her congressman’s Springfield office while she protested the Iraq war. She spent a month in federal prison after painting “Thou shalt not kill’’ on missile tubes of nuclear submarines in Connecticut.

When asked how often she has been hauled away for acts of civil disobedience, Frances Crowe responds with a smile: “Not enough.’’

Of the 143 member states who adopted the UN Declaration to protect the rights of indigenous people in 2007, the U.S. was not one of them.

In fact, the U.S. was one of only four member states who voted against it.

The United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples (UNDRIP) is a non-legally binding human rights instrument which affirms universal minimum standards for the survival, dignity and well being of all Indigenous Peoples. Adopted by the United Nations General Assembly in 2007, the UNDRIP recognizes the right of Indigenous Peoples as both a collective and as individuals, to fully enjoy their basic human rights - including Indigenous cultural rights and identity and the right to education, health, employment, and language.

Preparing the world for Islam!

Ageing Population & Population Pyramids:

An examination of world populations and birth rate patterns: for a country's population to remain constant the average birth-rate needs to be around two children per couple; if the birth-rate drops below two then the population numbers will start to decrease over time, nearly all countries in Europe have a birth rate below two; for a developing country, the population pyramid continues to grow, a developed country's population pyramid bulges in the middle before decreasing in size; in the baby boom years the birth rate was high, as this group gets older, but if there are less babies the population pyramid changes, so now we have an ageing population with fewer younger people to support them.
