Radioactivie Iodine in Tokyo Water System/Spinach and Milk from Farms Contaminated

TOKYO (AP) — The Japanese government reports that trace amounts of radioactive iodine were detected in tap water in Tokyo and five other areas, amid concerns about leaks from a damaged nuclear power plant.
A government ministry reported Saturday that small amounts of the iodine was found in tap water in Tokyo and five other prefectures. The ministry says the amounts did not exceed government safety limits but usual tests show no iodine.
But the findings add to public concerns about radiation leaking from the Fukushima nuclear power plant crippled by the earthquake and tsunami.
TOKYO — The government said Saturday that it had found higher than normal levels of radioactive materials in spinach and milk at farms near the ravaged nuclear power plants, the first confirmation by officials that the nuclear catastrophe unfolding at power plants nearby has affected the nation’s food supply.
Food safety inspectors said that the amount of iodine-131 found in the tested milk was five times higher than levels deemed safe. They said that the iodine found in the spinach was more than seven times higher. The spinach also contained slightly higher amounts of cesium-137.
“Everything that we are going through now is a lot scarier than the bombing attacks during World War II,” she said. “I’m not going to believe the government because I don’t think only spinach from Ibaraki will be affected.”

Saudi Arabia

At least ten protesters were injured after Saudi forces used batons to disperse the demonstrators peacefully marching to show solidarity with Shias in Bahrain.

The violence began almost immediately after the protesters’ noon prayers, conducted en masse in the street. As they rose, government supporters in plain clothes opened fire from rooftops and windows, while security forces at the south end of the protest fired guns and a water cannon, apparently in an effort to keep demonstrators from moving further into the center of the capital.

Pakistan Next?

As I monitor the public anger building up in Pakistan over what growing sections of the people see as the bullying tactics adopted by the US Government to secure the release and departure to the US of Raymond Davis a member of the staff of either the US Consulate-General in Lahore or the US Embassy in Islamabad (one does not know which), who allegedly shot dead two Pakistanis in Lahore on January 27, 2011, I am no longer that certain that there cannot be an uprising in Pakistan
Is Pakistan Next to Join the People's Uprising

ISLAMABAD – Pakistan's army chief strongly condemned a U.S. drone attack that killed more than three dozen people Thursday, saying the missiles struck a peaceful meeting of tribal elders near the Afghan border.
The accusation by Gen. Ashfaq Parvez Kayani — which was denied by a U.S. official — adds tension to a relationship already strained by the shooting deaths of two Pakistanis by a CIA contractor who was freed Wednesday following a contentious deal to pay millions in "blood money" to the men's families.
U.S.Drone Attack Kills 38 Tribal Elders

The Pakistan-India-United States triangle is a dysfunctional triangular configuration with no strategic convergence existing between the three nations and no vision of a united purpose to jointly achieve political and strategic ends...
This Paper intends to dwell on the examination of the Kayani Factor under the following heads as to how false it is for both the United States and India to bet on the Pakistan Army Chief that he would effectively contribute to a peace process between India and Pakistan and how truly he would deliver on United States strategic interests in Afghanistan and overall in South Asia:

The people, who speak in Shi’a dialect and are clearly horrified by the sight of the bodies, can be heard in the background claiming that a “black American” is responsible for this. Another says “these are poor Bangladeshis, they’re innocent!”. Towards the end, a third voice, who appears to be an eye-witness, says thugs in an “American jeep” did it.

Shintaro Ishihara Governor of Tokyo Speaks

From 2010: Seismic activity is up in Japan this year. So what does Tokyo governor Shintaro Ishihara do? In an April 9 address to the Japanese army, he tells troops that "Atrocious crimes have been committed again and again by sangokujin and other foreigners. We can expect them to riot in the event of a disastrous earthquake."

The last time Tokyo had a disastrous earthquake, in 1923, ultranationalist-led mobs took the opportunity to track down and kill thousands of the stricken city’s Korean residents.
Ishihara’s use of the 50-year old derogatory term "sangokujin" (an English-language equivalent would be "nigger") is especially disgusting.

  • In response to China's first successful launch of a man in space: "The Chinese are ignorant, so they are overjoyed. That spacecraft was an outdated one. If Japan wanted to do it, we could do it in one year."

  • “Let them bomb Japan with that nasty missile. Their missile cannot load a nuclear warhead.”

    • Regarding the bomb-planting at the private residence of Deputy Foreign Minister Hitoshi Tanaka: "A bomb was planted there. I think it was deserved."
    • Regarding a war between China and the United States: "Wars are a war of attrition of lives. China holds no value at all for human life and can start a war without any concerns...If tensions mount between the United States and China, the two sides could pull the trigger on each other. Then, the more the fire expands, the United States, which has a civil society that highly values human life, would not be able to win

    The outspoken governor of Tokyo, Shintaro Ishihara, told reporters Monday that the disaster was "punishment from heaven" because Japanese have become greedy.

    An Iraqi's Perspective Not From a Propaganda Based MSM Outlet or the US Government

    "The only alternative left for Iraqis is the path of an uprising or revolution on the footsteps of Tunisia and Egypt.
    The popular protests we are witnessing in Iraq, whether in the central and southern parts of the country by Arabs, both Sunni and Shiites, and those taking place in the Kurdish north, are voices denouncing sectarianism, factionalism and favoritism in the U.S.-guarded protectorate in central Baghdad.
    Neither the U.S. nor the Iraqi government can deceive the Iraqis any more by trumpeting empty claims about freedom and democracy."
