Glasgow airport used in US 'bunker buster' bombs shipment to Israel

26-07-2006 03:44

Glasgows Prestwick Airport is a staging post for US supplies of bunker buster bombs to Israel. The aiport has just received two chartered Airbus A310 cargo planes filled with GBU 28 laser-guided bombs over the weekend. The bombs are being flown from the US to Israel for use in the war in Lebannon and possibly for a wider war. The GBU 28 is the massive 'bunker busting bomb' a weapon the Israeli war machine desperately needs in its bloody attempt to smash Hizbollah.

Anti-Asbestos campaigners to 'go bananas' against Countryside Properties PLC

26-07-2006 01:19

Anti-Asbestos campaigners 'go bananas'...
Wednesday 26th July:

Anti-Asbestos campaigners are to ‘go bananas’ this evening outside Rochdale Town Hall from 5.45pm – 6.15pm.

Strict council rules ban placards and banners inside the Town Hall so the campaigners hope to get their point across with Fairtrade soft fruit.

They say the planning system is ‘bananas’ where local council taxpayers have to pay up to £80,000 for a report that heavily criticises the past actions of property speculators who wish to build a £100 million development with a planning fee of just £5500.

JVs & UAVs - top Israeli military targets in UK

25-07-2006 22:46

An Israeli UAV & company with a paint job
'British military exports to Israel were worth £23 million last year and licences for £2 million of arms exports were granted between January and March this year.' [1]

I don't know the official military imports but it will be equally underestimated. The true figure of military imports and exports are obscured by 'Joint Ventures' between Israeli and EU companies. In every market and region Joint Ventures, often referred to as JVs, are used to avoid domestic import/export regulations and laws. They are also used to transfer technologies to foreign nations as part of geopolitical deals. When ordered by the US, Britain exported F-16 HUD technology to Israel but the use of a joint venture would have made avoided the embarrassment of that public British u-turn.
Unmanned Aerial Vehicles are the drones that Israel uses for assassinations, reconnaisance, artillery-targetting, surveillance and so on. They range from souped up Model aircraft with missiles to remotely-controlled full-size aircraft carrying large payloads. They are the 'Aerial Hunter/Killers' of the Terminator movies. It is standard modern battlefield kit for most armies, but the Israelis have a whole battle-proven fleet and lead most nations technologically.

What If...We All Became Vegan?

25-07-2006 22:37

In June 2006 there were 6,525,000,000 people on the Earth, each consuming an average of 2800 calories per day. That’s a total of around 18 trillion calories per day, all of which have to come from somewhere; meat, dairy products, legumes, leafy vegetables, cereals, beets...ultimately though, from the soil, the rain and the sun.
