UK military steps up plans for possible US strike on Iran nuclear facilities --British officials consider contingency options to back up possible US strike against Iran 02 Nov 2011 Britain's armed forces are stepping up their contingency planning for potential military action against Iran amid mounting concern over Tehran's nuclear enrichment programme, the Guardian has learned. The Ministry of Defence believes the US may decide to fast-forward plans for targeted missile strikes at some key Iranian facilities. British officials say that if Washington presses ahead it will seek, and receive, UK military help for any mission, despite some deep reservations within the coalition government. In anticipation of a potential attack, British military planners are examining where best to deploy Royal Navy ships and submarines equipped with Tomahawk cruise missiles over the coming months as part of what would be an air- and sea-launched campaign.

November 2, 2011 by legitgov

Israel test-fires Jericho missile as Netanyahu works to secure cabinet consensus for attack on Iran 02 Nov 2011 Israel test-fired a missile from a military base on Wednesday, two days after Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu warned of the "direct and heavy threat" posed by Iran's [alleged] nuclear program. The noon launch near Tel Aviv, which had not been announced in advance, coincided with a week-long surge of speculation in local media that Netanyahu was working to secure cabinet consensus for an attack on Israel's arch-foe. The Defense Ministry described the launch from Palmachim base as the test of the propulsion system of a missile on which it declined to elaborate.

November 2, 2011 by legitgov

Herman Cain incorrectly suggests China doesn't have nuclear capability 02 Nov 2011 As allegations of sexual harassment from the 1990's continue to loom over Herman Cain's campaign this week, the GOP frontrunner is also raising eyebrows with his foreign policy remarks. In an interview Monday, Cain said part of China's threat to the United States stems from its attempts to develop nuclear weapons -- even though China tested its first nuclear weapon in 1964. Cain's remarks have in the past raised questions about his foreign policy credentials.

November 2, 2011 by legitgov

Former Marine's injury spurs vets to join Occupy movement 01 Nov 2011 Spurred by an injury to one of their own, military veterans are mobilizing to increase their presence and profile in the Occupy Wall Street movement. Wednesday on Wall Street, the New York City chapter of Iraq Veterans Against the War and dozens of other uniformed veterans known as "Veterans of the 99%" are expected to mass near Wall Street, where Occupy began Sept. 17. Although they've been participating in Occupy protests throughout the country, vets say their ranks have been swelling since last week, when former Marine and Iraq War vet Scott Olsen sustained a skull fracture when he was hit by a police projectile at an Occupy Oakland protest.

November 2, 2011 by legitgov

WikiLeaks' Assange to learn UK extradition fate 02 Nov 2011 A London court will rule on Wednesday whether WikiLeaks' founder Julian Assange, who angered the U.S. government by publishing thousands of secret diplomatic memos, can be extradited from Britain to Sweden for questioning over alleged sexual crimes. Swedish authorities want to quiz the 40-year-old over accusations of rape and sexual assault made by two former female volunteers for his WikiLeaks organisation. The case has cast a shadow over Assange and his whistle-blowing website which published a cache of more than 250,000 secret U.S. diplomatic cables last year and caused a media sensation.

According to a senior Israeli official, the plan involves building 1,650 units in East Jerusalem and the rest in the West Bank settlements of Efrat and Maaleh Adumin.

Japanese MP drinks Fukushima water under pressure from journalists --Yasuhiro Sonoda's hands shake as he drinks water collected from the plant to back up government claims of decontamination 01 Nov 2011 It was a simple gulp of water, but one that Japan's government hopes will carry symbolic importance as it seeks to ease concern over decontamination efforts at the scene of the country's nuclear crisis. Yasuhiro Sonoda, an MP in the governing Democratic party of Japan (DPJ), was visibly nervous as his lips met a glass of water collected from inside two reactor buildings at the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant. The MP been cajoled into making the gesture by journalists who repeatedly asked him to substantiate government claims that decontamination efforts at the plant were progressing.

Al-Qaida 'targets' Somalia drought victims with cash handouts --Unit arrives at camp as FBI reports up to 30 US nationals have joined al-Shabaab militant group, linked to al-Qaida 01 Nov 2011 Men claiming to be al-Qaida operatives are moving into the humanitarian vacuum in Somalia, distributing aid and cash to drought victims in an attempt to win hearts and minds, a Guardian investigation can reveal. On a visit to the sprawling Ala-Yasir camp in the south of the country, the Guardian saw an al-Qaida unit handing out rice, flour, oil, dates and milk as well as Islamic books and clothes to some of the more than 4,000 people made destitute by this year's drought. This was the first time the group has spoken publicly in Somalia, and the first time it has distributed aid. The unit's leader was introduced to the Guardian as al-Qaida's official envoy to Somalia. [So, let me get this straight. Al-Qaeda brings cash, water, rice, flour, oil, dates, milk, books and clothing to drought victims; USociopaths bring killer drone bomb strikes. Hmmm. Which is the better deal?]

Kyushu Electric Power Co. says it restarted the reactor at the Genkai plant late Tuesday. It shut down Oct. 4 because of a steam condenser problem. About 40 of Japan's 54 reactors remain halted, mostly for regular inspections but some because of damage from the March events.

Israel warns West: Window of opportunity to thwart Iran nuclear program is closing --Envoys renew diplomatic push to counter Tehran's [alleged] nuclear ambitions in Foreign Ministry lobbying drive that began in mid-September 01 Nov 2011 Israeli ambassadors in Western countries have been instructed to inform high-ranking politicians that the window of opportunity for imposing effective sanctions on Iran is closing, as part of a renewed diplomatic offensive aimed at using new sanctions to stop Tehran from [allegedly] developing a nuclear bomb. The Foreign Ministry campaign, which began in mid-September, seeks to convince the United States, European Union member states and other Western countries to impose the sanctions immediately because Iran is continuing to develop its nuclear program. [How about sanctions on Israel for already *having* nuclear weapons?]

Herman Cain waived confidentiality: accuser's lawyer 01 Nov 2011 Republican presidential candidate Herman Cain went on the offensive today against allegations that he sexually harassed two women more than a decade ago. Joel Bennett, the lawyer for one of the accusers, who is a married federal employee who lives in Maryland, told CBS News today that his client is telling the truth. Bennett said now that Cain is talking about specifics, the confidentiality agreements may no longer be binding. "I think the National Restaurant Association ought to waive the confidentiality and non-disparagement provisions and let the two women, if they choose to do so, come forward and tell their stories so that it can get a complete public airing," Bennett said.

Rick Perry uses fake Occupy Toronto quote in speech to discredit protesters 01 Nov 2011 Rick Perry's fumbling, stumbling campaign to win the Republican presidential nomination can add another gaffe to its growing roster: the Texas governor is the latest conservative to ridicule a fake quote in a satirical Globe and Mail piece in an effort to discredit the Occupy Wall Street protesters. At an appearance in New Hampshire last week, Mr. Perry, struggling to regain momentum in the race, made reference to the quote, which he said was sent to him by his son. "This was in Toronto," he told the crowd before paraphrasing the fabricated quote in an Oct. 21 Globe and Mail essay by freelancer Mark Schatzker. The piece was clearly labelled satire.

A senior US State Department official said there was growing concern among Obama administration officials ahead of an IAEA report set to be published in November indicating considerable progress in Tehran's [alleged] development of its military nuclear program. [Meanwhile, nearly every nation on earth fears USociopaths and Israel launching more wars for Exxon Mobil and BP.]

Abbreviated CLG Newsletters and Updates Due to Power Outage By Lori Price, www.legitgov.org 05 Nov 2011 I FINALLY got power back - nearly *eight days* after the storm! OF COURSE, I don't have the Internet, because AT&T 'lost' all my data and has to 'rebuild' my connection! 04 Nov 2011 Still no electricity -- one week later! 03 Nov 2011 Still no electricity -- day six! 02 Nov 2011 Still no electricity -- day five. The governor of Connecticut, Dannel P. Malloy (D-Deranged) has announced that CL&P (the main power company) will be restoring power to *businesses* first! Estimates are that some of us may have to wait *twenty days* for power restoration, as temperatures are in the 20s and 30s here! 01 Nov 2011 CLG readers: I have had no electricity since Saturday, due to the snowstorm that hit the Northeast on the 29th of October. I apologize for not being able to acknowledge those who recently donated to CLG, following the notice sent Friday. 'Officials' are 'unsure' when power will be restored. Let me take this opportunity to observe that if the billions -- yes, *billions* -- spent on air conditioning US troops in Afghanistan (so the CIA/US mercenaries can secure their opium and gas pipelines) were spent on upgrading US infrastructure, people wouldn't have to sleep in houses with no heat when it's 20 degrees outside.
