Boeing sells Dreamliner 787 to Aeroflot ending a year of murkey boondoggling

The Boeing Company [NYSE: BA] have announced that Aeroflot (who have just announced profits of US$258.1 Mn. up 36% ) will be buying a fleet of 22 off 787 Dreamliners. No further details are yet available. Aeroflot are also expected to sign a deal with Airbus for 22 A-350s soon, for delivery 2014-17 - possibly at the Paris Airshow.

Presumably these are planned to integrate with the new planes that Aeroflot announced on May 22nd 2007 t increase the prospective size of their Sukhoi SSJ (100/95 seater) "feeder/ regional " jet fleet , these are scheduled for delivery in May 2o11, which takes the whole prospective fleet of these jets to 55 in various configurations. Aeroflot also have plans for expansion by acquisition and have bid for Serbian flag carrier JAT Airways and is also in a bidding contest for Italy's Alitalia together with bank Unicredit .

Vladislav Filyov, General Director of S7 ( formerly Sibir airlines ) Aeroflot's top competitor in Russia, S7, last week signed a deal for 15 Boeing Dreamliners with the first deliveries expected by 2014 although no decision has been made on the power plants they will use. S7 offer a unique opportunityt to advertisers as they can decorate the exterior surface of the aircraft which carried 5 MN passengers in 2006.

Also today at XI Saint Petersburg international economic forum Sukhoi Civil Aircraft Company and Boeing signed a Memorandum of Understanding on increase of Boeing’s involvement in the Sukhoi Superjet 100 Programme.

The Protocol provides for increased Boeing’s involvement in setting up the after-sale support system, including assistance in creating the required infrastructure and providing access to such Boeing’s modern support infrastructure as crew and maintenance staff training, as well as access to spare parts distribution infrastructure.

The possibility to create a joint training centre and access to Boeing’s infrastructure and modern spare parts distribution technology will allow for setting up an internationally acknowledged after sales system, thus increasing Sukhoi Superjet 100 export potential and boosting its sales.
The Protocol stipulates for Boeing’s participation as a consultant in Sukhoi Superjet 100 family further modifications.

Boeing do not have a financial interest in the SSJ series but have previously acted as "management advisors" and they have "agreed" a maximum size limit to the series of 1100 seats. Finnmeccanica are also involved in the production of the power plants.

Simultaneously The European Bank for Reconstruction and Development(EBRD) has signed a 10-year €100 million loan agreement with Sukhoi Civil Aircraft (SCAC) to fund the construction of theSSJ series. The first new passenger airliner to have been designed in Russia since the collapse of the Soviet Union.

These various deals are the result of a year's rough diplomacy as Russia took a 5 % stake in Airbus parent EADS, through VTB the state-controlled bank . France and Germany , now the principal shareholders politeley declined their interest in Russia extending their stake.

Simultaneously Boeing's interests were threatened last year , when Washington tried to impose sanctions on Russian arms firms, including Rosoboronexport, because of sales to Iran and Syria.

Rosoboronexport, is headed by Sergey V. CHEMEZOV , 55 a former colleague of President Vladimir Putin's, and controls VSMPO-Avisma, the world's largest supplier of titanium products to the aerospace industry, including Boeing and Airbus.

Aeroflot is the largest domestic airline (and oldest , founded in 1923) in Russia and has international certification, with subsidiaries it carries 7Mn passengers (23% of all Russian passenger flights)Currently they have a fleet 90 air craft which fly to 93 destinations in 47 countries (302 flights a day). The company controls 51% of the Russian market of regular international flights and about 12% of domestic flights. With the Sky team alliance they reach 728 destinations in 149 countries .

Pic by Lord Patel is of the airframe of the first SSJ delivered from Komsolmosk to
Central Aerodynamic Institute (TsAGI) by AN-124 “Rouslan” for static testing by an Antonov 124 freight carrier from "Polet Flight" on January 28th 2007.

So whilst Dubya is huffing and puffing ,Boeing and the EBRD are quietly helping the Russian aircraft industry build their new jet fleet.

Chinese Coal carriers grounded off newcastle,NSW, Australia

Global energy flows are remarkably fragile. China, Japan and Korea buy huge quantitites of coal from Australia which is shipped from the the world's largest coal export harbor in Newcastle, NSW, Australia which are run by Port Waratah Coal Services

At any time 50 bulk carriers are waiting for cargo of the port. This week Severe weather, caused by low pressure off the mid-north coast of New South Wales whipped up gales grounding one carrier and endangering 2 more.

Consequently all loading services have been halted as the grounded Pasha Bulker, (Panamanian flagged by Wealth Line Inc. for the Japanese shipping line Sansho Kaiun Co.,) a Panamax-size vessel, ran aground just before 10 a.m. on Friday at Nobbys Beach, south of Newcastle (see pic above) port said Neil Patchett, a spokesman for NSW Maritime, the maritime authority of New South Wales state. The 225-meter (738-foot) ship also has 38 tons of diesel and 40 tons of lube oil aboard, but no coal.

Maximum wind gusts of 106 kilometers (66 miles) an hour recorded today were less than the 165 kilometers an hour gusts recorded when the Sygna coal carrier ran aground at Newcastle in May 1974, said Deryn Griffiths, acting manager of weather services for the New South Wales region at the Bureau of Meteorology.

A second coal ship, the Betis, lying about 2.5 nautical miles off the coast of Swansea, south of Newcastle, has a tug on site to provide assistance if required, NSW Maritime said. A third ship, the Sea Confidence, is about 1 mile offshore from Stockton Beach and appears to be stable, riding on its anchor with a tug standing by, it said. It is unclear whether the ships broke or dragged their anchors.

As many as seven coal ships may be at risk of grounding, said Lucy Muirhead, a spokeswoman at the International Transport Workers Federation in Sydney.

Any disruption of supplies to China can result in severe short term power supply problems.

Pic is of "Corona Lions" a typical Panamax 85,600 DWT Coal Carrier delivered on January 22, 2007 at Oshima Shipbuildyard in Japan for Fukujin Kisen Co., Ltd., Ehime, Japan ,which will ship coal from Australia to Japan - where coal consumption is rising die to problems with the Japanese nuclear power stations.

Situation Normal - Bush pissed up, heavy hangover

Ex Harvard / Yale heavy drinker George W. Bush missed a Friday morning working session of the G - 8 Heiligendamm summit on Friday morning.

The White House said it was probably due to a bad pint of beer.

French President Nicholas Sarkozy did however penetrate the medical defences and told a waiting world " He will join the working session when he can."

DNA on trial - R v Castree after the fuckups and lies of R v Kiszko

It is interesting to see that in R v Castree (2007)Defence Counsel for man charged with the 1975 murder of Lesley Moleseed will be same person who published , “Innocents” – The definitive account of the case of Stefan Ivan Kiszko, which was published in 1997 by Fourth Estate Ltd - 40 year old Jonathon Rose who was called to the Bar in 1981, and may be found beavering away @ St Pauls Chambers. 23 Park Square, Leeds.

The trial, expected to last 9 weeks, is scheduled to start on October 22nd in Bradford where we trust we do not have another " shocking story of a catastrophic multiple failure of British justice." as Rose's book was described.

(link)For more information about the case and how in 1994 DCI Richard (Dick) Holland, CS Dibb and forensic scientist Doctor Ronald Outteridge were formally charged with suppressing evidence in 1994. It was alleged they had destroyed the forensic evidence which could have proved the innocence of Stefan Kiszko and the guilt of the real murderer.They also withheld statements from the defence, which proved the whereabouts of Stefan on the day of the murder.

RSPB & ASDA bring you the birdbrains - who don't know their birds from their bees

In the absence of a handy sauce bottle label to read, a copy of the ASDA House magazine for June 2007 fell open at a double page spread pages 22-23

Asda (the UK arm of the world's biggest retailer Wal-Mart) have "teamed up with the Royal Society for Protection of Birds (RSPB) " to promote "bird friendly farms".

Facts about the RSPB - from their website

* Over a million members, including nearly 150,000 youth members.
* A staff of over 1,300 people and over 13,000 volunteers.
* An income of over £50 million per year.
* 200 nature reserves covering 130,000 hectares home to 80% of our rarest or most threatened bird species.
* A UK headquarters, three national offices and nine regional offices.
* A local network of 175 local groups and more than 110 youth groups.
* At least 9 volunteers for every paid member of staff.

If you want to know which UK bird species pollinate plants - including food producing crops you should perhaps call RSPB Wildlife enquiries Hotline : 01767 693 690 (office hours) if you think ASDA magazine could do with someone who knew , even vaguely about flower pollination and how this is done, contact either a 6 year old child or Ali Carswell described as the Editor of ASDA magazine can be contacted at asda.editor@asdamagazine.co.uk

Ali dear, here's a clue about plant pollinators in the UK.

Further clue, honey bees have 4 wings and 6 legs, birds have 2 wings and 2 legs.

Where are they Now ? No 374 : Humphrey

It was the late lamented lecherer and all round drunken diarist, Alan Clark, the Tory MP for Kensington and Chelsea, who originally demanded to know what happened to Humphrey who was the first victim of No 10 to disappear in peculiar circumstances.

It had of course been put about as a scurrilous, unfounded rumour that the ageing mouser had been despatched if not by the new PM's gorgeous wife, at least on her instruction.

The PM's spokesman,now believed to be , like Alan Clark, engaged on scurrilous diary (and very profitable) keeping said at the time ...(and who could disbelieve him) "One: the Blairs like cats. And two: the suggestion that Cherie got rid of Humphrey is a vile slur," he said.

Now as the pantechnicons pull up at the rear of No 10 and the famous sofa in which the fates of Iraq and Dr Kelly were sealed, amongst others, is hauled away - we wait to see if the promised successor will appear. At the time Lord Lloyd-Webber attempted to ask the Government what steps it proposed to take to ensure a cat was installed once again in Downing Street "so that the nation's business can be properly executed".

However, the minutes clerk of the Lords refused to accept his question on the grounds that it was not "a matter of genuine government responsibility."

Does Gordy look cat friendly ? Can you see him stroking a pussy ?

There are of course people going round repeating nasty rumours, saying that wasn't quite Gordy's style - until he became a married , and . er .. family man.

Fred Thompson President of the United States 2008-2012

The United States Jerusalem Embassy Relocation Act of 1995, which passed both houses of Congress by huge one sided votes [Senate by a vote of 93 to 5, House of Representatives by a vote of 347 to 37],it calls on the US to move its Embassy in Israel from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem and recognize the latter as the Israeli capital no later than May 31, 1999.

In a curiousand repeating Presidential habit Dubya, on June 1st, 2007 has for the 12th time (following on precedent by Bill Clinton ) suspended the required move. Needless to say Dubya promised to move the embassy if elected in 2000. The act specifically included this power to .... " suspend the [implementation] for a period of six months if he determines and reports to Congress in advance that such suspension is necessary to protect the national security interests of the United States."

Memorandum for the Secretary of State
Presidential Determination
No. 2007-21

SUBJECT: Suspension of Limitations Under the Jerusalem Embassy Act

Pursuant to the authority vested in me as President by the Constitution and the laws of the United States, including section 7(a) of the Jerusalem Embassy Act of 1995 (Public Law 104 45) (the "Act"), I hereby determine that it is necessary to protect the national security interests of the United States to suspend for a period of 6 months the limitations set forth in sections 3(b) and 7(b) of the Act. My Administration remains committed to beginning the process of moving our Embassy to Jerusalem.

You are hereby authorized and directed to transmit this determination to the Congress, accompanied by a report in accordance with section 7(a) of the Act, and to publish the determination in the Federal Register.

This suspension shall take effect after transmission of this determination and report to the Congress.


This topic will probably have been high on the agenda of Presidential hopeful Fred Thompson, (Offical campaign website I'm with Fred just put up - you saw it here first or heard about it on Hannity) star of the hit television series “Law & Order,” where he will meet Prime Minister Ehud Olmert, Foreign Minister Tzipi Livni amonst many others.

The former actor, who has also served as a US senator for Tennessee, was one of the sponsors of the Jerusalem Embassy Act.He is a member of the Council on Foreign Relations (CFR) and a Visiting Fellow with the American Enterprise Institute.Thompson also is the Chairman of the International Security Advisory Board(ISAB), a bipartisan advisory panel that reports to the Secretary of State and focuses on emerging strategic threats.(Members of ISAB)

His support for the Israeli war cause remains undimished over the years - in an Editorial on 30th May 207, in the National Review he argues ..."Israelis, however, have gone to incredible lengths to stop the war against them without harming Palestinian non-combatants. But make no mistake, Israel is at war. "

He goes on to say ... "If Iran develops nuclear weapons, the very existence of this tiny nation of Israel will be threatened. The Iranian regime has left little doubt that it intends to see Israel “wiped off the map.” Hamas is using the same language, not coincidentally, and has announced it will begin launching missiles into Israel from the West Bank too. "

Before you start scoffing this is a Survey US Poll of 3/6/07 in answer to the question "If the Republican Primary were today, would you vote for... Rudy Giuliani? John McCain? Mitt Romney? Fred Thompson? Newt Gingrich? Or some other Republican? "

Re: National Omnibus Poll – Republican Presidential Primary Results
Major Findings:

Since our last national poll conducted in April for Citizens United, there has been significant movement among likely Republican voters on the Presidential primary ballot. Fred Thompson’s support has risen five points from 13% to 18%, while Giuliani’s support has decreased by 4 points from 28% to 24%. Support for McCain (16%/17%), Romney (8%/7%) and Gingrich (6%/5%) remains consistent with the April results.

If you want to know why this 65 year old lawyer, part time actor is pulling in supporters and getting the red carpet treatment from the the Likudniks simply read his interview with Hannity.

"Israelis, however, have gone to incredible lengths to stop the war against them without harming Palestinian non-combatants."

Now that is an expression of his deep interest in the welfare of the Palestinians - observers of the extended bombing of the Lebanon, the daily rocket strikes and bombing in Gaza, the incarceration of elected representative members the state authorized assssinations.

Officially Fred hasn't declared yet but will apparently on July 4th, but it is of interest that has first port of call - just as an ex Governor of Texas did 8 years ago, was to visit the Wailing Wall.

£625,054 and 90 pence in McCann's Find Madeleine fund

The balance on 04/06/07, of the official Madeleine fund stood at £625,054 and 90 pence. Gerry - 39 today has left his Blog / Diary alone which is now 3 days out of date.

The Sun says plans for a spooky, prurient, voyeuristic Crimewatch reconstruction of the night of Madeleine’s disappearance have been shelved for tonight's show because Portuguese laws blocked access to the area (?). Identical pyjamas to the type Madeleine was wearing the night of her disappearance were shown and a confident description of a man "approximately 35 years old, about 5ft 8in or 5ft 9in tall and had dark hair, which was parted at the side and slightly longer at the backwas given by Mr McCann.He said the man was wearing a dark jacket slightly longer than a suit, beige trousers and dark shoes."

Meanwhile , it was a flying visit in a private jet to Berlin to meet British ambassador Sir Peter Torry, Germany's Deputy Justice Minister Lutz Diwell and the Klaus Wowereit the Mayor of Berlin, Then onwards ever onwards to Amsterdam where they lived for a year where they will appear on Dutch TV on Thursday, then it's on to Rabat.

The McCann Show featured on the Spanish Crimewatch equivalent last week, Los Mas Buscados, last week.

Lest we forget, Sean and Amelie, Madeleine's bother and sister are at the family's holiday apartment in Portugal with Mr McCann's sister Trish Cameron and her husband Sandy. Trish it will be remembered was the conduit to the press of her brother's initial phone call on the fateful night with tales of smashed shutter, windows and doors.

Aficionados of the Marriott Edgar monologues might enjoy a recitation of this one at this point.

7/7 was the UK 9/11, Zionists lightning strikes twice

UK Channel 4 had a piece last night which can be seen on their site here. Apparently after asking 500 (ish) brown skinned, mostly bearded Muslims, with beards and jib jabs / hajibs etc., they found that some of them don't believe the Government's story about the 4 jihadist Muslim "suicide bombers" on 7/7.

Now will someone tell me why the whiteys didn't get asked ? Or is it only uppity niggers who cause trouble and ask awkward questions ? Well there are a lot of uppity whiteys who have been asking questions (and not getting answers) for a long time.

Anyway there are many more uncomfortable truths and awkward connections that have been revealed and you may consider You can read noe evaluate the lateset published results of the ever excellent July 7th Campaign, who have studied the currently available evidence of what happened on that day nearly 2 years ago.

J7 Incident Analysis:Edgware Road / Paddington Blast Incident Analysis

J7 Incident Analysis: Liverpool Street / Aldgate / Aldgate East Incident Analysis

It is pointless to attempt to precis the research and Conclusions / Queries - no-one who reads it can fail to be puzzled how ex Mossad Boss Mr Halevi could write an article to appear in the Jerusalem Post of that days date an article dramatically entitled 'Rules of Conflict for A World War' and claim (way in advance of any possible evidence to supprt the claim):

“The multiple, simultaneous explosions that took place today on the London transportation system were the work of perpetrators who had an operational capacity of considerable scope.

There was careful planning, intelligence gathering, and a sophisticated choice of timing as well as near-perfect execution. We are faced with a deadly and determined adversary who will stop at nothing and will persevere as long as he exists as a fighting terrorist force.”

When it appears that even now there is considerable confusion over ;

1. The location of any "bombs" and /or explosions / electrical power surges

2. Which trains and there location at the time were involved - and even which direction they were travelling

3. The nature of the xplosions / bombs / explosions / power surges

There may be a simple explanation for all the obfuscation, bad eye witness memories , incapacity to record events acurately (or truthfully) to account for this, absent CCTV recordings - to account for Mr Halevi's prescience, prophesy even requires hindsight of remarkable vision ... or more likely foreknowledge.

Part of the whole story which is new here in our vast and overworked research department is of the tale of two visiting Americans girls (see pic) , (few on the ground these days with US$2 to the pound !) It is best left to simply provide the known information from the J7 report with a few extra links.

"There is also the very strange case of the American girls, Katie and Emily Benton, site-seeing in London that morning and who were, according to early reports, intending to visit the Tower of London, again, the opposite direction to Paddington. The extent to which the authorities went to to remove them to a secure hospital in the US is quite incredible: Scotland Yard had to interview the sisters before they left because they were victims of a terrorist attack, and all of their passports and travels papers had been lost in the blast. Duke quickly formed a task force and made numerous phone calls to work out complex details with government agencies in the U.S. and London. ( Mrs Benton had very sensibly flown immediately to London) Securing an air transport service willing to fly two patients instead of one and the mother on the same plane also posed a challenge. Through the help of the U.S. Embassy in London, Duke contracted with a service in France with Duke leaders guaranteeing the $155,000 transport cost. The plane, which left London on Sun., July 10, (not before they were interviewed) was required to land in Montreal. The three were transferred to another plane with a different crew due to security concerns before flying on to Raleigh-Durham International Airport. Duke Life Flight sent two ground transport crews to transport them, and the rest of their family who met them at the airport, to Duke. “This was one of the most complex transports I’ve seen in the 15 years I’ve been involved in this type of work,” said Jeff Doucette, associate operating officer for Emergency Services at Duke University Hospital (DUH). “It was extremely rewarding to see the team at work in the Transfer Center and Life Flight Communications. Nobody relaxed until the job was done. A solid 36 hours was spent on working out the details.” Source: Inside Duke here

After these extraordinary efforts to transfer the Benton sisters to the US, they were then given high-security protection in hospital and one of the first visitors allowed to speak to them was Peter Zimonjic, a Telegraph journalist and passenger on one of the trains at Edgware Road who subsequently set up a survivors forum called LondonRecovers of which Peter Zimonijic is the gatekeeper:
..... there is a security net around the patients that includes the FBI and Office for Homeland Security. Upon my arrival I was escorted by police from the hospital to my hotel and warned that should I choose to return to the hospital without an escort I would find myself arrested.

This description given by Emily is of being electrocuted, an experience shared by many survivors of these blasts, and of more than one explosion: We were only on the train for just half a minute. It wasn't -- we had just sat down. The train had just taken off. We didn't have time to look around at what other people looked like or who was on there or anything. And then the explosions went off. I felt like I went into, like, the fetal position and just, like, crouched down and I felt like I was being electrocuted. And I felt like I was on fire and I was burning. I could feel my skin like, peeling off. Everything had just been, you know, ripped. The windows had been blown out. You know, the chairs, some of the chairs, the seats had been, you know -- come off. And there were poles and debris everywhere."

The Benton girls seem sparky ladies and left hospital on 22nd July and featured in a CNN programme - about the shooting of de Menezes on the 21st July 2005 , the transcript of which is fascinating and includes further information from them about their experiences live from a News Conference as they left Duke Medical centre.

1893 Anti Pinkerton Act floors Spicer , and the hired thugs of Aegis

Ho.Ho.Ho. Brian X. Scott, a 53-year-old Colorado man, brought a complaint in early April, to the U.S. Court of Federal Claims, that a US Federal law of 1893 the Anti-Pinkerton Act prohibited the government from hiring quasi-military forces would be violated. His complaint has been upheld.

Originally enacted to thwart businesses that had hired mercenaries to disrupt labor groups, the immediate effect is a massive blow to Aegis the UK supplier of hired thugs run by Colonel Tim Spicer with his numerous and well connected , and well fed, (eg Right Hon Fatty Soames MP.PC) friends of the Lady Dame Jane Patricia Neville Jones Fan Club and their claqueurs at RUSI won the initial US$293 million, Iraqi security contract in 2004. The continuing contract is said to be worth US$475. Tom Griffin has recently written in Counterpunch (23/5/07) about the complexities and intrigue behind the various contracts for hired thugs in Iraq .. he also provides fascinating detail how easy it was to crack their confidential sites with reports of about patterns of insurgent activity from the "Reconstruction Operation Center."( ROC) reports .

The complainant , Scott has served nearly 13 years on active duty in the U.S. Army and worked for 6 years at the Interior Department on contracting issues. He is now fully employed trying to obtain government contracts and protesting about the the use of private security contractors.
He has previously filed about a dozen protests against the use of the contractors in Iraq. All were filed with the GAO, and all were dismissed.

Scott's succesful legal challenge prompted the Government Accountability Office to immediately dismiss protests brought by two major private security contractors the Army had removed as potential bidders (basically they were too small to handle the size of contract) -- Erinys Iraq, a British firm, and Blackwater USA of North Carolina.

Michael Golden, the GAO's managing associate general counsel for procurement law, said the agency dropped the matter because Scott's court complaint may force the Army to revise the lucrative contract.

The GAO's dismissal of the two protests on Thursday freed the Army to award the contract at any time. UK based Erinys (already a supplier in Iraq, motivated no doubt by greed but under the cloak of legal fairness and constitional correctness) tried to seek a temporary restraining order to prevent the US Army from awarding the contract.

Blackwater who of course may benefit from this change explained through Anne Tyrrell, their spokeswoman for Blackwater, that they do not intend to join Erinys's efforts to obtain a restraining order. "We're leaving it to the process, and we're not going to take it any further," she said. Although DynCorp, the hawkers of prostitutes may well yet get a good chunk of business.

The pic is of our friend Tim "Soldier of Fortune" Spicer , then President of Sandline Int. being arrested in Papua New Guinea March, 1997. he was of course invloved in suplying arms from Bulgaria to supporters (like Rakesh Saxena) who wished to re-install President Kabbah in Sierra Leone - the source of the money for the arms (although denied) being the so called "blood diamonds" smuggled out of that desperately poor country.

It is always worth noting that one of the Directors of Aegis is General Sir Roger Wheeler GCB CBE, Roger had a long and distinguished military career. As Chief of the General Staff, the professional head of the British Army, a member of the Advisory Board of Thales UK and the Serious Organised Crime Agency. Poacher turned gamekeeper or set a thief to catch a thief ?

JFK Jetfuel Bombers secret pipeline surveillance exposed

This is the sign that marks the Brooklyn landfall of the Buckeye pipeline which the DOJ have got so worried about. Lord Patel's Jihadist surveillance team took this some time ago.

See the official report from the DOJFour Individuals Charged in Plot to Bomb John F. Kennedy International Airport Plot Targets Airport’s Jet Fuel Supply Tanks and Pipeline Defendants Include Extremists in United States, Guyana, and Trinidad

"The fuel supply for these operations (1,000 flights daily, approximately half of which are international flights) are linked primarily to the Buckeye Pipeline, which distributes fuel and other petroleum products to various sites in Pennsylvania, New Jersey, and Staten Island, Brooklyn, and Queens, New York, among others."

The pipeline owners have a website that explains their security / maintenance effort

They helpfully explain "No work should be conducted along a Buckeye pipeline without prior approval. This is to ensure the safety of the people working around the pipeline as well as the safety of everyone else in the area."

They also have a helpful "Call before you dig" page that explains how contractors should contact them

"If you or someone you know is going to conduct any type of excavation work, including demolition, blasting, mining, digging with power equipment, hand digging, or any other type of work that will disturb the ground, you need to contact the One Call System that covers that area. "
You see they got those bombers well covered - soon as they wanted to bomb those lines they needed to "Call before they Dig".

Also a look at Information for excavators, real estate, and land developers...

"It is vitally important that you know the specifications of Right-of-Way restrictions before planning any projects or selling any property along pipelines owned and/or operated by Buckeye. It is also important that our line markers not be removed from our Right-of-Way, since they mark the approximate location of our pipelines and let people know that a pipeline is in the vicinity.

Kurt Nimmo at Another Day in the Empire has a detailed breakdown ," JFK 4 : Connecting Propaganda Dots from Jamaat al Mulimeen to Hugo Chavez " and reminds us of the BBC report on (amongst many others)17th Februaru 2003 of Hasil Mohammed Rahaham-Alan, 37, from Venezuela, appearing at Bow Street Magistrates' Court after Customs officials stopped him after he flew in to the UK from the Venezuelan capital, Caracas, on a British Airways jetcarrying a live grenade in his baggage.

Well the odd thing is that any amount of Googling and searching fails to turn up any further reference to the grenade carrying Venezuelan passport holding passenger....Except this
from Airline News weeks later ..." The 39-year-old, a devout Muslim, reportedly had no links to militant groups and his grenade had been disarmed. At first he was charged under anti-terrorist laws but the prosecution said it now accepted that he had acted as a result of depression caused by personal problems. Sentencing has been adjourned until 20 May, reported Reuters."

Carpet bomb Gaza, "If they don't stop after we kill 100, then we must kill a thousand,"

The Nazi Rabbi (his son isn't kidding either) former Sephardi chief rabbi Mordechai Eliyahu - this is no backwoods redneck, but the voice of the mainstream middle east Jewry has some forthright views about Arabs.

A MUST READ ARTICLE by Kahlid Amayreh, (lifted direct here from Peace Palestine) it begins like this:

"Shortly before Israeli occupation soldiers in cold blood murdered two Gaza children, who apparently were searching for scrap metal to sell for a few cents in order to help feed their impoverished families, the former Chief rabbi of Israel, Mordechai Elyahu, urged the Israeli army and government to use the “Nazi choice” against Palestinians.

Elyahu reportedly petitioned the Israeli government to carry out a series of carpet bombings of Palestinian population centers in Gaza, arguing that a ground invasion of the world’s most crowded spot would endanger Israeli soldiers."

The source for this information, the Jerusalem Post:

Eliyahu advocates carpet bombing Gaza
Matthew Wagner - May. 30, 2007

All civilians living in Gaza are collectively guilty for Kassam attacks on Sderot, former Sephardi chief rabbi Mordechai Eliyahu has written in a letter to Prime Minister Ehud Olmert.

Eliyahu ruled that there was absolutely no moral prohibition against the indiscriminate killing of civilians during a potential massive military offensive on Gaza aimed at stopping the rocket launchings.

The letter, published in Olam Katan [Small World], a weekly pamphlet to be distributed in synagogues nationwide this Friday, cited the biblical story of the Shechem massacre (Genesis 34) and Maimonides' commentary (Laws of Kings 9, 14) on the story as proof texts for his legal decision.

According to Jewish war ethics, wrote Eliyahu, an entire city holds collective responsibility for the immoral behavior of individuals. In Gaza, the entire populace is responsible because they do nothing to stop the firing of Kassam rockets.

The former chief rabbi also said it was forbidden to risk the lives of Jews in Sderot or the lives of IDF soldiers for fear of injuring or killing Palestinian noncombatants living in Gaza.

Eliyahu could not be reached for an interview. However, Eliyahu's son, Shmuel Eliyahu, who is chief rabbi of Safed, said his father opposed a ground troop incursion into Gaza that would endanger IDF soldiers. Rather, he advocated carpet bombing the general area from which the Kassams were launched, regardless of the price in Palestinian life.

"If they don't stop after we kill 100, then we must kill a thousand," said Shmuel Eliyahu. "And if they do not stop after 1,000 then we must kill 10,000. If they still don't stop we must kill 100,000, even a million. Whatever it takes to make them stop."

In the letter, Eliyahu quoted from Psalms. "I will pursue my enemies and apprehend them and I will not desist until I have eradicated them."

Eliyahu wrote that "This is a message to all leaders of the Jewish people not to be compassionate with those who shoot [rockets] at civilians in their houses."

Lord Patel warns you to remember Former Chief Rabbi Mordechai Eliyahu issued a threat against politicians who would dare to cede land to Arabs. Addressing pulsa denura ([pseudo-]Kabbalistic death curse) ceremonies on March 2nd 2006 performed against Prime Minister Ariel Sharon, Eliyahu said: "There is no person in the world who can perform a pulsa denura. The only one able to do a pulsa denura is the Land of Israel." "In the past, some leaders undermined the land of Israel and gave away parts of it, and later they suffered grave disasters," the rabbi said at the time.

Ariel Sharon is currently in a vegetative coma having been replaced by Mr Olmert to whom the rabbi addressed his recent letter letter.

The BBC (10/4/2001)reported the spiritual leader of Israel's ultra-orthodox Shas party, Rabbi Ovadia Yosef, calling for the annihilation of Arabs.

"It is forbidden to be merciful to them. You must send missiles to them and annihilate them. They are evil and damnable," he was quoted as saying in a sermon delivered on Monday to mark the Jewish festival of Passover.

Rostock - and the mysterious Autonomen

Der Spiegel has a fascinating slide show of the G8 protesters at Rostock accompanying their article claiming that the violent eruption surprised everyone after a peaceful demo which became extremely brutal paralyzing the Baltic Sea port city for many hours resulting on over 430 injured police. Reuters has a story and impressive slide show as well.

It is not without interest that the German Police Union (Gewerkschaft der Polizei (GdP)) criticised the arrangements for security prior to the summit and blamed the US for heavy handed policing and security. Polizeigewerkschaft kritisiert US-Sicherheitsvorgaben . The fortress mentality of the Bush gang doesn't want to see the demonstrators, hear them, or think about them.

The police union chairperson said, "Es ist mir eine Herzensangelegenheit, dass Menschen demonstrieren dürfen, dass der Protest deutlich sichtbar ist. Das ist wichtig für unsere Demokratie." ("It is my heart's desire that people be allowed to demonstrate, [and] that the protest is clearly visible. That is important for our democracy.")

Makes you wonder where all those vioent people arrived from to make the proceedings erupt..the Police called them "autonomen" ..autonomous groups.

This is a picture of the young Nicolas Sarkozy , a politically enlightened youth taking part in the great Events of May in Paris in 1968 when the banlieues erupted.

"Racaille" which De Gaulle should have swept off the streets with his hose ?

David Lane, Prussian Blue, and the Aryan Nation

David Lane, Ku Klux Klan and Aryan Nations member was one of the founding members of the Silent Brotherhood, an armed underground group has been reported dead on May 28th at the Federal (Supermax) maximum-security prison in Florence, Colo ( or maybe even the Federal facility at Terre Haute where McVeigh the Okie bomber was executed) .. where he had been serving a 190 year sentence. He is remembered and to some extent revered for his 14 word creed ..."We must secure the existence of our people and a future for white children."

The Order (AKA Bruders Schweigen or Silent Brotherhood) is a largely-defunct faction of the Aryan Nations Church of Northwest Idaho active in the 1980s. FBI agent Wayne Mantis called The Order "the most organized group of terrorist-type people to have ever operated in the United States."

Led by Robert Jay Mathews and informed largely on the beliefs of the The Turner Diaries, an apocalyptic novel about a future interracial war in North America written by William Luther Pierce under the pseudonym Andrew Macdonald. The Order was based on a fundamental need for violent revolution against the United States government (called by them "ZOG", for Zionist Occupation Government) and total destruction of African Americans and Jews.

Mathews led the Order through a series of violent crimes, including bank robberies and bombings of theaters and synagogues. They also ran a large and successful counterfeiting operation, and executed a series of armored car robberies, including one in Ukiah, California that netted $3.8 million.(see also Richard Scutari)

The FBI , working through informers, mainly ex members tracked down Mathews in December of 1984 to a cabin in Whidbey Island, Washington where he refused to surrender, and eventially is said to have died in a fire of his own making.

Ten members of the group were convicted of the June 18, 1984 murder of Alan Berg, a liberal, Jewish Denver-area radio talk show host. The murder, or assassination, and consequent trial form the core of Steven Dietz's 1988 play God's Country. Lane denied any involvement in the murder and was actually charged and found guilty on RICO charges of racketeering and conspiracy.

The rock band "Dresden" (not to be confused with the "Dresden Dolls" band) wrote a song called "To Robert Mathews in Valhalla" in 1995.

Of more contemporary interest are home schooled twins Lynx and Lamb Gaede (now 14) who formed a white duo with ties to US Vanguard movement which they called Prussian Blue - "Gone With the Breeze," is a song on their first CD Fragment of the Future dedicated to Robert Mathews. They received acclaim / notoriety when they appeared in one of Louis Theroux's BBC documentaries on weirdos in America "Louis and the Nazis".

Lane had a sincere interest in Wotanism, allegedly inspired by an essay of the same name written by Jung. Lane had expressed derision for the Odinist religion which has rejected what they perceive as his attempt to appropriate their religion for political and racist ends. Lane explains his motivations:

"So, I first chose the name Wotanism over Odinism. First because W.O.T.A.N. makes a perfect acronym for Will Of The Aryan Nation. Secondly because he was called Wotan on the European continent and only called Odin in Scandinavia. Therefore Wotan appeals to the genetic memory of more of our ancestors. And finally because a split had to be made with the game players, deceivers and universalists who had usurped the name Odin."

Lane was responsible for a crazy Wotanic (?) work "The Pyramid prophecy" still with it's adherents and a website to send you to sleep - but worth examining to try to understand the oddities of human nature - he suggests 88 rules. e.g

14. In accord with Nature’s Laws, nothing is more right than the preservation of one’s own race.

25. A People without a culture exclusively their own will perish.

Wotansvolk and 14 Word Press are currently defunct organizations, no longer having mailing addresses or websites. The Temple of Wotan still exists, but the organization was no longer run by Lane or his associates and claim to have distanced themselves from racist and neo-nazi ideologies. Based on letters written from prison to his supporters, Lane appeared to remain committed to spreading his message through Wotanism, and it is unclear what his final relationship was with The Temple of Wotan.

Lane recently authored (from prison) a short story entitled KD Rebel, a masturbatory fictional account of a colony of Wotanists who live up in the mountains and kidnap miscegenating or "wayward" young girls and women from urban areas and force them into polygamy as breeding stock. Lane strongly advocated polygamy as part of Wotanism..... The first recorded crime of the Silent Brotherhood was the robbery (yielding but US$300)of a sex shop.

The pic is of the Prussian Blue 14 words mouse pad available from their webstore. "This high quality, full color mousepad is 1/4 inch thick and measures 9 1/4 x 7 3/4. It features a picture of Dresden, Lynx and Lamb's baby sister standing in a field of flowers in the Carizzo Plain of California. It has the 14 words " We must secure the existance of our people and a future for White children"

An explanation provided for the delightful duo's name is a mocking reference that the dye Prussian Blue was allegedly used as a marker in the alleged Zyklon B gas used in thealleged gas chambers of the alleged Holocaust. Ho.Ho.Ho.

JFK Airport - Flight 587 crashes in Queens -256 dead

In the turbulence falsely created by another supposed terrist plot, this time the bombing of subterranean jetfuel pipelines to JFK airport by bombers without bombs, it is worth remembering another terrist incident at JFK Airport just 2 months after 9/11.

The 2nd worst US air accident was on November 12th 2001, was when American Airlines Flt 587 Airbus A300-600 No N14053 mysteriously crashed in Queens, New York, shortly after takeoff from JFK airport, killing 265 people. See the site here on Google Maps.and CNN slide show of crash site pictures and more on Airliners net site of plane and crash site.

The official NTSB version in their report claims the A300, which took off on the same runway as a Japan Airlines Boeing 747, flew into the larger jet's wake, an area of very turbulent air. The co-pilot, Sten Molin, attempted to keep the plane upright with the rudder, but pushed the rudder too far to one side and then overcorrected too far to the other. The strength of the air flowing against the moving rudder stressed the aircraft's vertical stabilizer and eventually snapped it off entirely, causing the aircraft to lose control and crash. According to the NTSB, the crash would not have occurred but for the co-pilot's use of the rudder. NTSB Transcript of the Voice recorder (without a serial number) can be read here.

The aerodynamic loads placed on the vertical stabilizer due to the sideslip that resulted from the rudder movements were beyond the ultimate design strength of the vertical stabilizer.

"No law enforcement agencies provided any evidence that the accident may have stemmed from criminal conduct. The Board said that witnesses who reported observing the airplane on fire were most likely observing misting fuel released from broken fuel lines, a fire from the initial release of fuel or the effects of engine compressor surges" .... which is why no doubt the Chairman of the NTSB could say with certainty hours after the accident that no terrorist action was involved...even though the Hudson tunnels were closed, UN locked down and the Empire State Building evacuated.

There is no memorial to the victims at the site of the crash, (filled in in 7 days) which has now had houses rebuilt on it.A US$8.5 memorial site should be finished by fall this year at the junction of Beach Road and the ocean, including 2 comfort stations.

Todd Wissing is an Airbus A300-600 First Officer and in evidence to the much stalled enquiry said..."Finally, a fellow pilot of mine, points this out regarding wake turbulence, and he says 'if you consider all the places in the world where aircraft take off that are behind other aircraft and you consider that these airplanes have been taking off one behind the other for 50 years…large commercial airplanes…and you consider that Kennedy Airport is probably one of the best airports in the world with the most highly trained air traffic controllers…and you consider what's being speculated here about over-control in reaction to a wake turbulence event that is likely felt a lot by pilots, and I certainly have felt it many times, and you consider what we're being asked to believe that these pilots mis-controlled this airplane and caused structural damage…and go back 50 years [and see that this] has never happened before…it seems to us that they [NTSB] still need to do some work."

No Airbuses were re-called, none grounded and no statements have been made about the accident by Airbus. Senator Schumer called for a re-opening of the enquiry in April 2005 "“The safety and reliability of the [Airbus] rudders have come into question,” he said. “The NTSB owes it to the many families of the victims of the crash [of AA 587] and to the traveling public to find out whether traveling on those planes is dangerous.” Nothing happened.

Huge chunks of the plane were recovered (NTSB photos, engines etc) as were all 256 bodies.

Prison Planet has more information ... start here
and watch the video of an eyewitness fireman who saw an on board explosion and subsequent fire before the plane split up and crashed. In August 2004 a supposed Al-Qaeda operative told Canadian intelligence that a Montreal man who trained in Afghanistan alongside the 9/11 hijackers was responsible for the crash. Rense had another theory about sabotage.

BBC "Horizon"showed a fillum on Thursday 8th May 2003, in which blame was fairly put on Airbus construction and over use of rudder pedals by American Airlines pilots.

Even today some American Airlines pilots have their doubts about the lightweight Airbus construction method. They believe that traditional metal structures are easier to check for early signs of wear, pointing to another A300 thought to have flown with tailfin damage for four years after a visual inspection had failed to spot anything. (American Airlines checked its entire A300 fleet for tailfin damage after the November 2001 disaster. It was given the all clear.)

Which is why everyone is looking to see how the all composite Boeing 787 Dreamliner performs in service.
