Bush Funding Jihadists Connected to al Qaeda as Part of Iran War He Has ALREADY STARTED

We know that at least nine months before the official "Shock and Awe" day when the big attack was started against Iraq-- NINE MONTHS-- the US had already begun the war, with almost daily bombing raids and covert operations.

While Bush and his surrogates, the latest being his new Secretary of Defense Gates, are denying planning a war against Iran, all the signs indicate that this war has already begun, is under way and that Bush is partnering with Saudi Arabia to run covert operations using jihadist Sunni groups that are either close to or actually part of Al Qaeda.

That's the message I took from the latest Sy Hersh blockbuster article in the New Yorker and an interview of him on CNN by Wolf Blitzer.

He told Blitzer,

"The Bush Administration has decided to put as much pressure as possible on Shiites."

"Sinora (elected leader of Lebanon) is putting money into Sunni jihadist groups opposed to Hezbollah."

"Nasrullah says he sees this as 'fitna' (arabic word used to mean "insurrection and fragmentation within islam") a kind of civil war... that the US is trying to foment in Lebanon what's been happening in Iraq."

CLIMATE CHANGE: de-forestation

NAIROBI, Feb 8 (IPS) - The severe degradation of the environment and its impact on climate change are dominating discussions currently underway at the 24th meeting of the governing council of the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) in the Kenyan capital.

Delegates at the five-day meeting which ends Feb. 9, are in agreement that climate change, which remains the world's overriding environmental challenge, requires global efforts to counter it.

Reducing deforestation is being cited as a key measure to mitigate some of the effects of climate change.

Massive turnout at India air show

Massive turnout at India air show
Some 500 aircraft companies from around the world have gathered at an air show in India hoping to sell planes to the country's booming aviation sector.

The five-day event at the Yelahanka air base in Bangalore will showcase a range of new civilian and military aircraft.

India plans to buy 126 fighter jets for its air force to replace ageing planes in its fleet.

Industry estimates suggest India would need over 1,000 planes over the next two decades as air travel booms.

Air traffic in India could double by 2010 to 50 million passenger journeys a year on the back of a growing economy, according to one estimate.

Some 45 foreign delegations and 35 air force chiefs from various countries are attending the five-day air show in its sixth year now.

Reports say companies like Boeing, Lockheed Martin, Russia's MIG-29 and Sweden's Saab will be vying for orders for the Indian air force's new fighter jets.

Companies like Boeing and Airbus will be also exhibiting a number of their civilian aircraft at the show.
