‘NATO A Great Threat To The Security Of Its Members, Rest Of The World’ – 29 October 2014

RT logoThe North Atlantic Treaty Organization poses a threat to its members by involving them in interventions based on pretty flimsy evidence, Patrick Armstrong, former political counselor at the Canadian Embassy in Moscow told RT’s In the Now show.

The new NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg has made his first policy speech.

RT: The face of NATO has changed. Is this a chance for the politics to change?

Patrick Armstrong: Let me suggest what Stoltenberg should have said if he wanted to show that NATO was seriously discussing events. He might have said, and this should have been on the agenda at the recent meeting: “Mr. Kerry, a year ago you were telling us that you were absolutely certain that the Syrian government was using chemical weapons and that we had go bomb it. Today you are now telling us that we should go bomb the people that last year we would have been supporting. Please explain, discuss.” We all saw the photos of the militia cavorting in the US embassy swimming-pool in Tripoli. “Was armed NATO’s intervention in Libya a good idea or bad idea? Discuss.” A month ago we learned that the Kosovo Liberation Army that we supported -indeed we gave the entire country to it 15 years ago – was in fact a pretty nasty, criminal organization. Discuss. In conclusion, Mr. Stoltenberg, that would seem to me that based on past practice, NATO’s interventions appears to have made things worse, have detracted from the security of its members, and were based on pretty flimsy evidence. Discuss that, Mr. General Secretary, rather than blithering on about how wonderful NATO is.

N.Korea May Invite UN Rights Investigator After Kim Jong-Un Prosecution Threats – 29 October 2014

RT logoFor the first time in a decade, North Korean diplomats met a UN human rights investigator to discuss his possible visit to the country ahead of a UN General Assembly session, that could potentially lead to a trial by the International Criminal Court.

The hour-long meeting was unexpected, Marzuki Darusman told reporters on Tuesday, as Pyongyang officials had not met UN officials charged with investigating North Korea’s human rights record for the past 10 years.

Darusman said the move appears to be motivated by the talk of legal action against Korea’s leader Kim Jong-un.

lisagawlas2As all of you know, yesterday was that dreaded day in my world for the marrow extraction to see why my white blood cells have been producing themselves on the high to very high side for the last two years, from the very start of my melanoma cancer journey Nov. 2012.  I want to make very clear here too, the dread was for the procedure itself not whatever the outcome may have been.  I am the biggest baby when it comes to any potential of pain.

Zambia’s President Sata Dies In London, Africa’s First White Leader In 20 Years Takes Over – 29 October 2014

RT logoPresident of Zambia, Michael Sata, died on Tuesday at a London hospital, the government announced on Wednesday. Sata, nicknamed “King Cobra” because of his allegedly abrasive manner, was 77. Guy Scott, a white Zambian, was chosen as acting president.

Sata passed away at London’s King Edward VII hospital, although the cause of death has not been made public.

He disappeared from the public eye in June and was later reported to be receiving medical treatment in Israel.

Sata flew to the British capital 10 days ago for what officials called a “medical checkup abroad.” He and the Zambian government repeatedly denied rumors that he was suffering from a terminal illness.

Saudi Arabia Is Shooting Itself In The Foot By Executing Shiite Cleric – 29 October 2014

RT logoNile Bowie is a political analyst and photographer currently residing in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. He can be reached on Twitter or at nilebowie@gmail.com

The House of Saud’s plans to execute a revered Shiite cleric and protest leader reveal the extent to which the regime is vulnerable and desperate to perpetuate itself. Going ahead with the execution would be strategic miscalculation.

Significant political developments have unfolded in Saudi Arabia in recent weeks following a court decision to execute Sheikh Nimr Baqir al-Nimr, a polarizing Shiite cleric and political activist who has campaigned for civil equality, an inclusive socio-political system, women’s rights, minority rights, and the release of political prisoners. Prosecutors condemned the cleric to death by beheading as punishment for charges of sedition, though the execution date has not yet been set.

Sheikh Nimr has been the fiercest critic of the Kingdom’s absolute Sunni monarchy for the last decade, but gained a considerable public following after leading a series of protests in 2011 in opposition to the Saudi military’s violent intervention and suppression of the pro-democracy movement in neighboring Bahrain, a satellite state with a Shiite majority ruled by a heavy-handed Sunni dynasty. His sermons and political activism continually emphasized non-violent resistance.

UK Forced To Admit GCHQ Can Access Foreign-Gathered Data Without Warrant – 29 October 2014

RT logoThe UK government has admitted for the first time that its spy agency, GCHQ, can access raw data mined by America’s NSA and others without a warrant. It was made to comply following post-Snowden legal action from rights organizations.

The secrets leaked by the iconic former NSA contractor led Amnesty International, Liberty and Privacy International to compel the UK government to submit documents to government surveillance watchdogs revealing secret “arrangements” between GCHQ and foreign spy agencies, The Guardian reported.

The documents reveal that such access to foreign partners’ bulk data is acceptable when it’s not “technically feasible” to acquire a warrant, and if the good that comes out of it is “necessary and proportionate” to the cause.
