Obama rejected using
cyberattacks to paralyze Syrian military. (1)
Senior administration officials
say Obama turned down use of cyber attack fearing precedent move would
set, 'NYTimes' reported.
During a series of crisis meetings on Syria throughout the course of
the conflict there, as it slowly turned from an Arab Spring uprising to
a fractious civil war, US President Barack Obama's national security
team presented him with new, powerful
tools that would ground the air force of embattled Syrian President
Bashar Assad and effectively turn his lights out: cyber weapons, never
before used on the battlefield.
In a New York Times report published Monday and written by David
Sanger, who last year released enterprising coverage in that paper on
covert US cyber operations against Iran, senior administration officials
confirm that the president turned down those cyber attack options
against Assad, fearing the precedent their use might set in future
conflicts should he proceed.
While an advanced attack would not completely debilitate Assad – he has
off the grid capabilities that would remain intact – it would significantly cripple his
ability to conduct air-strikes, of the like he has repeatedly ordered
against highly populated civilian areas.
Considering what we read above.... Maybe the
photograph of President Obama we shared with you last February 21st was
indeed a message from God.

Time to take cyberwarfare seriously. (1)
Over the past decade the United
States and Iran have transformed the definition of traditional warfare,
offering the international community a glimpse into what future wars
will look like. In the past decade, both countries have bolstered
their cyber arsenals, launching sophisticated assaults on each other's
computer networks, financial services, and sensitive infrastructure.
The United States may have
been more successful, but Iran is catching up. When these
cyberattacks escalate, they may have a serious humanitarian impact.
Yet, international law has so far failed to addressing the cyberwar

Ukraine gave up its
nuclear weapon arsenal back in the early nineties. (1)
When the Soviet Union collapsed in
1991, the newly independent Ukraine had on its territory what was the third largest strategic
nuclear weapons arsenal in the world. It was larger than those of
Britain, France, and China combined.
On June 1, 1996 Ukraine became a non-nuclear nation when it sent the
last of its 1,900 strategic nuclear warheads to Russia for dismantling.
The first shipment of nuclear weapons from Ukraine to Russia (by train)
was in March 1994.
In return for giving up its nuclear weapons, Ukraine, the United States of America, Russia, and the United Kingdom signed the
1994 Budapest Memorandum on Security Assurances, pledging to respect Ukraine
Treaty Content. (2)
According to the memorandum,
Russia, the USA, and the UK confirmed, in recognition of Ukraine
becoming party to the Treaty on the Non-Proliferation of Nuclear
Weapons and in effect abandoning its nuclear arsenal to Russia, that they would:
Respect Ukrainian independence and
sovereignty within its existing borders.
from the threat or use of force against Ukraine.
Refrain from using economic pressure on Ukraine in
order to influence its politics.
Seek United Nations Security Council action if
nuclear weapons are used against Ukraine.
Refrain from the use of nuclear arms against Ukraine.
Consult with one another if questions arise
regarding these commitments.
As almost a first grader can see, Russia is
wiping its boots with the treaty because they know that neither the
U.S. nor the U.K., nor the wimpy NATO and UN Security Council will do
anything to stop them.
As we have said many times, the Western Powers - led by the US - have
become, since World War II (the last war we won), the Paper Tiger China
equated us with some years back.
Unless those Western Powers rise to the occasion, they will be shining
Russian boots until God steps in and re-boots the world.... but then
again, that's part of the schedule. (3)
In the meantime, do you realize what impact this will have
in the negotiations with Iran seeking that they give up their nuclear
dreams with the guarantee (what a joke!) that the Western Powers will
protect them? In other words, the negotiators should pack up their bags
and go home because a snow ball will have a better chance in hell than
the chance of Iran now giving up their nuclear dream.

Merkel gets Putin to accept "fact-finding" mission to Ukraine. (1)
German Chancellor Angela Merkel and
Russia's President Vladimir Putin have engaged in some telephone
diplomacy over Ukraine, with Putin
reportedly accepting a Merkel proposal for a fact-finding mission to
open a political dialogue in Ukraine, possibly under the
auspices of the Organisation for Co-operation and Security in Europe.
NATO also convened an
emergency meeting on Sunday to discuss its
options. While its Secretary-General did not announce any hard
measures, he repeated Russia's military deployment was a violation of
international law, and deplored the Russian parliament's approval of
the use of force.
"We call on Russia to de-escalate tensions. We call upon Russia to

War In Crimea: Lock On

In 2003, Ukraine, independent since the
1991 dissolution of the Soviet Union, was calm. The Orange Revolution,
the first stirring of the sentiments that would lead to the current
upheaval, was still a year away.
The world then was focused instead on Iraq, where a U.S.- led invasion

Candy Crush Mobile Game App Provides Much-Needed Distraction For
War-Weary Syrians. (1)
Suhail has a small addiction and
feels no shame about it.
Every day, the stay-at-home
mother of four quickly finishes her household chores so that she can
"sit down and play Candy Crush."
"It's my time. My hour. I'm hooked, and I love it," she says as she
offers her guests coffee in her living room. She is referring to one of
the cell-phone games that are popular these days among ordinary
Damascenes in the war-torn city.
The average person in the Syrian capital has a few such games
downloaded on his or her cell phone, and people can be seen playing
solo while doing all sorts of things, like walking down the street,
sitting in traffic at checkpoints, or waiting to see the dentist.
Suhail sometimes plays the
game at the expense of tending to her 2-year-old daughter. Or so
her sister alleges.
"The other day I saw this
with my own eyes," says the sister, half-heartedly confronting Suhail.
"You were so busy playing, and your baby wanted to go potty, and
instead of putting down your game and taking care of your child, you
told Lara to take care of the baby and you just kept playing,"
she adds, referring to Suhail’s 8-year-old daughter, who sometimes
helps care for the toddler.
Suhail seems unfazed by the
accusation, and in a twist of irony, her cell phone rings right
at that moment. It's a friend asking if Suhail has received her request
"to send an extra life or two" for Candy. The game sometimes freezes
out a player for hours unless a fellow player sends "a life" -- an
exchange that takes place on Facebook.
"Yes, yes, I'll get it to you. Don't worry, I haven't forgotten,"
Suhail tells her friend over the phone. A few moments later, she excuses
herself from her guests to send "the lives."
"Sorry, but it's urgent," she
explains, looking sheepish.
Just what the world needed: Electronically assisted denial!

The church features a revolutionary concept - what Father Bautista

The back of the main
tabernacle of the church has a glass window, making it visible from the
driveway running through the back of the church. "From the
highway, you can go around and stop at the back of this tabernacle, and

Those statements contain a

more difficult truths that have been embedded in this story since NCR
began covering this awful chapter of church history in 1985. We claim a
certain authority in addressing the issue because we have been

church and that the church has done more than any other institution to
become transparent and aggressive in preventing abuse.
The other side of that truth, Your Holiness, is that no other
institution on earth had the means or the will to hide as much crime
and sin for so long. The reality is that while the incidents of
of children are horrific, the
larger and more persistent scandal is how
many bishops and cardinals hid the sin, paid victims enormous
money to stay silent and refused to tell even their fellow bishops and
priests of potential problems when they transferred troubled priests.
Unless this deep wound is attended to in a loving and understanding way

horrible injustice within his own family - the wound will only continue
to fester and dwarf all the other pastoral and institutional reforms
you have initiated.

placing it into another. In doing so, this Soviet-born scientist has
drawn the ire of bioethicists and the scrutiny of federal regulators.
The procedure is intended to help women conceive children without
passing on genetic defects in their cellular mitochondria. Such
mutations are rare, but they can cause severe problems, including
neurological damage, heart failure and blindness.
"It was a major breakthrough," said Douglas C. Wallace, a professor of
pathology and laboratory medicine at the University of Pennsylvania.
"He's an exceptionally talented person."
But the resulting baby would
carry genetic material from three parents - the mother, the host egg's donor
and the father - an outcome that ethicists have deplored.

Mexico: Cartel Kidnapped Kids, Stole Their Organs (1)
Police in Mexico say they've
uncovered a grisly scheme to kidnap children and sell their organs.
Authorities in the Western state of Michoacan revealed yesterday that
they'd arrested Manuel Plancarte Gaspar, the nephew of one of the top
leaders of the Knights Templar cartel, for his alleged involvement. Gaspar and his cohorts would
allegedly take their young captives to rented homes with medical
equipment and remove their organs.
Police said the cases dated
back several years. Once word of the arrest broke, a leader in a
local vigilante group told a radio station that several children had
been rescued from a cartel van in his town.
"They were inside a
refrigerated box, tightly wrapped in blankets," he said. All hailed
from the same Mexico City school, and were abducted during a beach
outing. The Templar cartel has for years been diversifying its
operations beyond drugs; it now makes most of its money from illegal
mining, logging, and extortion.

Report from Ukraine
Introduction by miguel de Portugal
following was sent to us by a close long term cooperator from Ukraine.
It is a news update of the real situation there, not from a news media
reporter but from a local professional and head of a young family.
Some updates about
situation in Ukraine
as of March 20th, 2014.
While it seems that
real war was averted,
chances of it are far from
zero. Russia is still very actively trying to destabilize East and
South of Ukraine to then invade it using military forces.
Internal politics are under big stress too, because a lot of current
people in power, who were an
opposition during previous regime, are
actually part of it. So people are very displeased and there is a non
zero chance of yet another revolution, this time against current
government - many corrupt schemes still exist and many people who
should have been in jail long time ago are still not.
But more interesting
with Russia and reaction from
West, especially EU.
What I currently see
is actually an
absolute lack of reaction from EU. I
have viewed news from Russia a bit closely in the past and am sad to
that reaction of EU is completely harmless. Some time ago Putin
demanded that all people who belong to government of all levels should
not have any money or own anything outside of Russia. So those
"sanctions" are almost completely harmless, and even if they had owned
something - this is done through offshore companies, not by having
personal deposits. EU
definitely knows this but, as I understand it,
they wanted to give an impression for their people of "active
sanctions like targeted sanctions against oligarchs
companies are blocked by most countries - Britain, Germany, France
all the rest.
Reason is simple -
this will also harm
their economy a bit (like 2%
luxury houses in UK belong to Russians), because Russian elite don't
live in Russia, they
live in EU using all the money stolen from
This is not a big
surprise for us here in
Ukraine because we saw
exactly the same "silent support" of previous criminal regime of
Yanukovych during Maidan days. The only reaction was varying level of
"concern" statements from EU.
here in Ukraine
expected for the EU to take our side in this confrontation. What we
that the EU would do something about money of the regime which had
criminal (and bloody) origin - something proved by thousands of
many individuals..... and that money was used to pay for criminals to
kill us. We
expected that EU would follow their own laws - not ours! But they did
Now we see a replay
of this, but this
time with Russia and, on a
US reaction (oil
reserves, arrest of one
of the oligarchs, political
build up, "warning" for Syria) was much more adequate, but too little
- too late. Crimea is officially annexed.
The situation will
definitely evolve and
change, but annexation is a fact
same as the reality that US
and Britain (e.g. EU) failed to fulfill
their obligations based on Budapest nuclear pact of 1994.
For Ukraine it is a 4th month of confrontation with blind,
Honestly - this was and still is absolutely
surreal. Now, the entire world will become a play field of this
confrontation. Fortunately - nobody openly sided with Russia (yet...).
One of the Maidan
lesson was to give
correct names and characteristics
to the events the world now witnesses.
As I see it - the
nature of West reaction
is not fear, it is greed.
I hope I am wrong.
Hard to predict how
countries from other
parts of the world (Asia,
South America, Middle East) will change their plans and goals, but I
think it is safe to assume that all previous calculations and analyses
are no longer true.

IRS monitor: $1 million phone scam 'largest ever'. (1)
If the phone rings and the caller says
he represents the IRS, be suspicious. That's the warning from federal
authorities, who on Thursday said a nationwide phone scam has stolen $1
million from thousands of unsuspecting people.
The impostor claims to be an
Internal Revenue Service representative and tells "intended victims
they owe taxes and must pay using a pre-paid debit card or wire
transfer," an IRS inspector general office said.
"The scammers threaten those who refuse to pay with arrest, deportation
or loss of a business or driver's license."
The IRS has received more

China's "secret" Satellite Weapon. (1)
Last May, China launched a rocket into
space, supposedly to release a "cloud of barium" 10,000 km (6,213
miles) in the air to research the magnetosphere. But Brian Weeden, a
space analyst at the Secure World Foundation, has rounded up a growing
body of evidence to suggest the launch was in fact the test of rocket
designed to launch a "kinetic kill vehicle" to destroy enemy satellites.
Weeden's theory is based on
publicly-available information, including an analysis of where
debris from the rocket landed, satellite photography of the
launch pad, and photos
of the rocket plume posted by observers in Hong Kong:
Weeden says last May's rocket
launch was actually a secret test of the first system that could be
used to target satellites in high orbits. That's different from
the anti-satellite weapons China has tested before, which analysts
believe are designed to destroy satellites closer to earth. A botched
2007 test of of one of these weapons created a cloud of satellite
debris that inspired the movie "Gravity."
(1) Obviously China does not care to
set a precedent as President Obama does enabling the continuing
genocide in Syria;
(2) Some people can pin point all details - including debris of rocket
- of a
secret mission, but we just don't seem to be able to find a missing
passenger jet with 239 victims aboard;
(3) Whatever security that our low and high orbit satellites provides
is obviously null and void. More wasted taxpayers money without any

Shale may offer long-term home for nuclear waste. (1)
About 77,000 tons of spent nuclear
fuel currently sit in temporary above-ground storage facilities, and it
will remain dangerous for tens or
hundreds of thousands of years or longer.
Experts say that since the U.S. government abandoned plans to develop a
long-term nuclear-waste storage site at Yucca Mountain in Nevada in
2009, finding new long-term storage sites must be a priority. Shale deep under the Earth's
surface could be a solution. France, Switzerland, and Belgium
already have plans to use shale repositories to store nuclear waste
Shale, the source of the U.S.
current natural gas boom, could help solve another energy problem:
what to do with radioactive waste from nuclear power plants. The unique
properties of the sedimentary rock and related clay-rich rocks make it
ideal for storing the potentially dangerous spent fuel for millennia,
according to a geologist studying possible storage sites who made a
presentation here today.
Not only they are ignoring the serious
geological threat caused by fracking (extracting natural gas from deep
under the Earth shale), now they want to store nuclear waste in the
space that becomes available when the gas is extracted.
In reality they do not have time to implement such plan, but the fools
obvioulsy have not
even considered the consequences of a "Nuclear Earthquake". The

Stolen babies, stolen lives, Spanish justice served cold. (1)
Stolen from their mothers at
birth, sold to be brought up by another. We meet Juani and
Paloma, two Spanish women caught up in Spain’s scandal of stolen
babies. They're among many struggling to come to terms with crimes done
to them and their biological parents decades ago.
Advocates say there were
thousands of false adoptions, beginning during the Franco regime.
Money changed hands between
doctors, nurses, priests,
nuns and foster
families - who didn't necessarily know the babies were stolen.
Juani, 48, wonders about her
brother. He was delivered at the Santa Cristina Clinic in Madrid. But
they told her mother he was stillborn. Juani thinks her brother
is still alive somewhere.
When many think of Spain they,
enraptured, think of Catholicism and God. Just the tip of the make
iceberg. The Catholic Church in Spain could give
lessons on how to bamboozle the faithful.
The misery that one sees throughout Latin America - all of it! - can be
traced back to the version of Catholicism Spaniards forced down the
throats of the natives in Central and South America while they were
continent blind. If, conversely, the real Catholic Faith had been
applied in the New World, it would have turned into a Paradise.
