Airstrike Against Iranian Nuclear Facilities Could Kill 100s of North Koreans and Russians

Airstrike Against Iranian Nuclear Facilities Could Kill 100s of North Koreans and Russians By John Daly 16 Nov 2011 As the drums for direct military intervention to derail Iran's purported covert military nuclear weapons program beat louder in both Jerusalem and Washington, an overlooked issue is the possibility of international "collateral damage," to use the Pentagon's favourite euphemism for civilian casualties. On 14 November South Korea's Chosun Ilbo stated, "Hundreds of North Korean scientists and engineers are working at about 10 nuclear and missile facilities in Iran, including Natanz..." Russian technicians also remain at Iran's first nuclear electrical energy facility, Bushehr. So, any aerial strikes against Iran's nuclear facilities could result in significant numbers of dead Russian and North Korean specialists as "collateral damage," with all the diplomatic uncertainties that might ensue from Moscow and Pyongyang as the body bags start arriving home.

Churchill's Polar Bears Still Waiting for Freeze-up --Waiting, Waiting... 16 Nov 2011 Snow is finally blanketing the tundra near the town of Churchill, and fragile sea ice is beginning to form along the coast of Hudson Bay.

The longer and longer ice-free seasons on Hudson Bay are straining the limits of this population's fat reserves. Scientists report seeing more thin bears this year and fewer family groups. Tragically, they also discovered two dead bears on the tundra.
