This information dates back to 2006. Since then the debt has grown to over 1.2 trillion dollars! That's more than 36 000 dollars per Canadian in debt to the private bankers. "We should want for nothing."

Israeli Ex President gets 7 Years Jail for Rape, Head of IMF steps down amid rape charges, The only way discipline is meted out these days - is by way of sexual allegations, like with Herman Cain as well. And so many dissidents have got a long line of false evidence lined up against them. Justice went along with ideology.Now a small secretive ruling elite achieves its ends by interfering in people's personal lives and painting them as perverts.
Really arrested this time?
And as the siege of Sirte was coming to an end on October 20, it was widely reported that Saif had either been killed or captured. Despite those rumors, it was later determined he had successfully managed to flee the city.
Likewise, Saif’s younger brother Khamis was also subject to numerous reports regarding his death that later proved to be unfounded. Khamis was first said to have been killed during a bombing raid on his family’s Bab Al Aziziya Compound in Tripoli on March 20. Al Arabiya confirmed the report, citing unnamed sources. After that report was disproven, a rebel spokesman then falsely claimed that Khamis died during an August 5 airstrike.
However, he was really killed when a NATO helicopter destroyed a convoy he was traveling in on August 29, as pro-Gaddafi forces would later confirm.
12 people have reportedly been killed in clashes in Syria as the Arab League's ultimatum against the country's leadership expires later on Saturday. Earlier this week the Cairo-based body suspended the country and promised tougher action if President Bashar al-Assad fails to end the violence. Pressure on the Arab country has been mounting throughout the week with France insisting it's now too late for the regime to try and save itself through reforms. The UK has officially begun talks with the Syrian opposition with critics saying this mirrors the build up to the operation in Libya. However, Russia believes the situation is being dramatised by foreign parties, and stressed that opposition groups should also to lay down their arms. Turkey and Jordan announced plans to establish two buffer zones for refugees on Syrian territory - a move War Correspondent Eric Margolis thinks signals the start of outside intervention.
New violence comes a day after Syria agreed to allow Arab observers into the country to oversee a peace plan proposed by the Arab League. The deadline for Damascus to put an end to the violence expires at 2200 GMT on Saturday.
Meanwhile the British-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights and the Local Coordination Committees claim the regime’s latest attacks on opposition occurred early Saturday, a day after 15 civilians, including two children, had reportedly been killed by government forces.
Syria's decision to accept observers came on Friday after surprisingly heavy pressure from
the Arab League, which brokered the plan. Earlier this week LAS suspended Syria from the 22-member organization for failing to end the crackdown.

Germany has drawn up plans that would see Britain relegated to a group of countries which would not be part of the core of a new European Union, according to reports.
According to a report in the Telegraph, a leaked memo from the German foreign office has revealed radical plans on how to tackle the crisis gripping the EU.
In the email, a new European body is proposed which would be able to take over the economies of struggling nations within the eurozone.
The EU's largest economy is also preparing for other European countries which are too large to be bailed out to default on their debts - effectively going bankrupt.
Ahead of a meeting between Angela Merkel, the German Chancellor, and Prime Minister David Cameron today, the Telegraph claims the email also reveals plans to relegate Britain to a new outer group of EU members who are not in the single currency.
Relations between the two nations are becoming more strained as the crisis worsens, with backbench MPs from the Conservatives calling for more powers to be given to Britain.
Some have called for a referendum on EU treaty changes, but Germany is expected to shout down such calls as it moves to tackle the economic crisis.
Earlier this week Germany called on Britain to do more to help rescue the eurozone by agreeing to a tax. Source
Events like the one in the above video have been far too common in the police response to Occupy protests across the country. I do believe that Occupy Wall Street is at a tipping point, and that it must grow beyond and evolve away from the tent city occupations, but this police response is absurd and excessive.
Showdown Underway; New Democracy Party Wants Rollbacks on Austerity Measures
The very instant the Greek "Unity Government" formed it was divided. Antonis Samaras, the leader of Greece’s New Democracy Party, one of the three coalition parties that formed the government says he will not sign a document demanded by the IMF before it will release the next tranche.
That's not all, Samaras actually wants to rework the agreement. Neither will fly (at least with Greece receiving the next tranche of money), and tensions fester. Source
Thousands of police clashed with protesters for control of Cairo's Tahrir Square on Saturday. The violence comes nine days before Egypt's first elections since the ousting of President Hosni Mubarak in February.
At least 81 people were injured, according to Egyptian state TV. AP reports that its cameraman saw at least three people arrested, when they refused to leave the square.
The violence began when riot police attacked around 200 peaceful demonstrators, who had camped out in the square overnight, and dismantled a tent camp set up to commemorate protesters killed in the uprising. Police were said to be firing rubber bullets, tear gas and beating protesters with batons to clear the area. Source
The US Army has tested a hypersonic missile, which travels six times faster than the speed of sound. It is part of a larger plan to have the capability to strike any place on the planet within an hour.
The missile, called the Advanced Hypersonic Weapon (AHW), was launched from Hawaii on Thursday, the Pentagon reported. A rocket delivered it to suborbital altitude, after which the glider went for its target on the Marshall Islands, some 3,700 kilometers away.
It hit less than 30 minutes later, which means its speed was at least 7,400 kilometer per hour, or about Mach 6. An aircraft must be able to fly faster than Mach 5, to qualify as hypersonic. Source

The global dominant narrative about China is wrong, claims Gordon Chang. Don't expect it to be the 'pocketbook of last resort' that will rescue world markets from their current malaise.
And don't expect its remarkable economic growth to continue.
In fact, expect a "hard landing" for China - and soon. Source
As the eurozone crisis continues, could the options on the table include a German takeover? A leaked document from Germany's foreign ministry reportedly reveals the country may be preparing for a new European fund that will be able to take over the economies of struggling eurozone countries. Meanwhile, we know regulators have been trying to figure out what happened to the $600 million dollars missing from customers of MF global. And they now suspect at least some of that cash may not be missing, it may be gone. Regulators suspect it may have been used to cover trading losses at the firm that has, of course, now declared bankruptcy. The question remains as to whether more customers will react like Gerald Celente who we talked to this week and created a new interpretation of what MF really stands for. And from working on Wall Street to Occupying Wall Street, we'll talk to Max Keiser on his evolution from broker to leader of the so-called global insurrection against banker occupation. And with 75,000 layoffs expected on Wall Street, will we see more bankers join the fight?
Edward Yardeni, president and chief investment strategist at Yardeni Research Inc., talks about how the U.S. faces debt problems similar to those in Europe, and the outlook for the euro. Yardeni coined the term bond vigilantes in 1983 to describe investors who protest monetary or fiscal policies by dumping bonds. He speaks with Sara Eisen, Scarlet Fu and Erik Schatzker on Bloomberg Television's "InsideTrack." Source
Demonstrators in Italy and Greece marched in the streets yesterday to protest the austerity measures that are being brought forth by the new governments of both countries. The European Union has ordered these economic modifications and the people feel their only weapon against the measures are their voices. Charlie McGrath, founder of WideAwakeNews.com, compares the voices in Europe to the voices at the Occupy Wall Street movement.
Police in the United States have used pepper spray on Friday against students who were taking part in a peaceful “Occupy” campaign in front of the University of California, Davis. Ten protesters have been arrested.
Demonstrators had been ordered to remove their camp, but after refusing, officers showed up and tore their tents down, using force against unarmed people.
Shortly afterwards, police began using pepper spray on students and arresting some of them, the crowd quickly swelled in number, and police chose to retreat.
