2 more Afghan children 'mistakenly' murdered by NATO

RT: NATO has officially confirmed that two Australian troops accidentally butchered two Afghan children in southern Afghanistan. The children were tending cattle when they were slaughtered.
An official statement was made by the alliance after Afghan and ISAF investigators visited Uruzgan province: "The boys were killed when Coalition forces fired at what they thought were insurgent forces," Reuters quoted ISAF head US General Joseph Dunford as saying.
General Dunford also offered a “personal apology and condolences to the family of the boys who were killed."
The two children, 7 and 8 years old, were killed on February 28 during an attack in the southern province of Uruzgan. Australian troops were reportedly responding to an earlier attack in which Taliban militants shot at a helicopter carrying Australian soldiers.
The Australian Defense Department has not revealed further details on the attack, but confirmed an “operational incident” in the province, and that there were no Australian Defense Force casualties, according to the Sydney Morning Herald.

Misandry: Time for the feminazis to STFU! Recognize the time and use your minds

Angelo: The vanguard of the masculist movement, have always understood that self centered and loutish behavior was no panacea, yet we still wait for enough feminists to endure the cycle and grasp this reality and the wisdom of restraint and compromise. In the meantime the lame stream media air shows with 100% women hosts, guests and audiences laughing at graphic story's of men's genitals being chopped off and minced, as if to test how dumb the sheeple have become to a situation unimaginable if the roles were reversed. Now we are treated to general rubbishing and parry by the brain rinsed in propaganda masquerading as inquiry headed Misandry.

Why Is JPMorgan's Gold Vault, The Largest In The World, Located Next To The New York Fed?

Tyler Durden's picture When two weeks ago we exposed the heretofore secret location of JPM's London gold vault (located under the firm's massive L-shaped office complex at 60 Victoria Embankment) we thought: what about New York? After all, while London is the legacy financial capital of the "old world", it is New York that the biggest private wealth of the past century is concentrated, and it is also New York where the bulk of the hard assets backing the public money of the world's sovereigns are located, some 80 feet below ground level in the fifth sub-basement of the New York Fed, resting on the bedrock of Manhattan.
That the topic of the gold "held'' by the New York Fed - historically considered the gold vault with the largest concentration of gold bars in the world - has become rather sensitive, in the aftermath of the Bundesbank's request to repatriate it (surely, but very, very slowly), is an understatement. Yet in the aftermath of some of the revelations presented here, we believe quite a few other countries will follow in Germany's footsteps for one very simple reason: suddenly the question of whether their gold is located at 33 Liberty, or just adjacent to it, in what we have learned is the de facto largest gold vault in the world, located across the street 90 feet below 1 Chase Manhattan Plaza, doesn't appear to have a clear answer.
But first, some background.

The Crossroads of Humanity

Our Hero: WikiLeaks Truth-Revealer and 'the Nelson Mandela of our era', Bradley Manning, Says He Wanted to Show the Public the "True Costs of War"

Michael Ratner: For the first time, 25-year-old U.S. Army Private Bradley Manning has admitted to being the source behind the largest leak of state secrets in U.S. history. More than a thousand days after he was arrested, Manning testified Thursday before a military court. He said he leaked the classified documents to the whistleblowing website WikiLeaks in order to show the American public the "true costs of war." Reading for more than an hour from a 35-page statement, Manning said: "I believed that if the general public, especially the American public, had access to the information ... this could spark a domestic debate on the role of the military and our foreign policy in general."

UK PROPERTY PRICES: Boom, surge and bollocks

The Slog: We are 48 hours into March, and so ‘tis the season for pretending that UK property prices are on the rise again. This is a tactical programme organised on an annual basis to complement the overall ongoing strategy of hype about everything returning to normal.
forsalesigns‘House prices surge for second month in row’ proclaimed the Express this morning, and indeed they have gone up: ‘a typical three-bed semi now costs £162,638, a rise of £393 in four weeks.’ So that’d be £166,000 by the end of the year if the trend continues. It is unlikely to.
The source of the study, Nationwide, talked enthusiastically of a rise by 0.2% in January and 0.5% last month. But in the small print towards the end of the Express piece, Robert Gardner, the Nationwide’s chief economist, pointed out that “buyer confidence is also likely to remain fragile until there are signs that the wider economic recovery is firmly entrenched.”
What recovery is that then? The trend last year was to a speeding-up rate of slowing down in Q4, with very disappointing output figures for last month. Mervyn King still says the EU is a “black cloud” likely to stop any recovery dead (it is getting worse over there, without doubt) and the world economy is heading inexorably into widespread recession.
But as far as the number of sales is concerned, the HMRC joined in the bollocks bonanza, talking of ‘…a five per cent increase on 2011 and the highest since 2007′. However, the later tables point out that sales are still half the levels we saw in 2007.

China Central Bank Says It Is "Fully Prepared For Looming Currency War" + Here Come…China’s Drones

Just in case Lagarde (and everyone else except for the Germans, who have a very unpleasant habit of telling the truth), was lying about that whole "no currency war" thing, China is already one step ahead and is fully prepared to roll out its own FX army. According to China Times, "China is fully prepared for a looming currency war should it, though "avoidable," really happen, said China's central bank deputy governor Yi Gang late Friday." We look forward to the female head of the IMF (International Mother Fuckers) explaining how China is obviously confused and that it is not currency war when one crushes their currency to promote "economic goals." Of course, that same organization may want to read "Zero Sum for Absolute Idiots" because in this globalized economy any attempt to promote demand (by an end consumer who has no incremental income and stagnant cash flow) through currency debasement has no impact when everyone does it. But then again, this is the IMF - the same organization that declared Europe fixed in 2009, 2010, 2011, 2012, 2013 and so on.
More on China's FX troop deployments:

Yi, vice governor of the People's Bank of China, made the comment amid widespread concerns that the world's major economies would drive down their units to gain a trade advantage through monetary easing policies. 

A currency war could be avoided, Yi said, if policymakers in major countries observed the consensus, reached at the recent G20 meeting, that monetary policy should primarily serve as a tool for domestic economy.
