Genocide: Depleted uranium used on purpose by the USA and UK to create birth defects and cancer in Iraq 14 x worse than Hiroshima

RT: Cancer is more common than flu in the Iraqi city of Najaf, a local medic explains. While doctors say the government discourages them from talking openly to the press on the disease, local families are scared of having more kids with birth defects.
Rates of leukemia and birth defects “rose dramatically” due to use of depleted uranium by the US military since 2003 invasion.
After the start of the Iraq war, rates of cancer, leukemia and birth defects rose dramatically in Najaf. The areas affected by American attacks saw the biggest increases.

Wow. This story about Iceland’s “recovery” is a complete lie.

By : Reykjavik, Iceland - Without doubt, Iceland was the canary in the coalmine for the sovereign debt crisis that is unfolding across the world right now.
IcelandIt was the first place to go bust, crumbling under the weight of a credit-fueled boom that brought down most of the country’s banking sector and sent the currency into freefall.
Banks either went bust or got nationalized. And investors around the world suddenly woke up to a sobering reality of a major default… something that had been considered preposterous only months earlier.
The situation got so bad that the British government (whose taxpayers had much to lose from Iceland bank defaults) used their anti-terrorism legislation to seize Icelandic bank assets in the UK!
It was a spectacular collapse. And the first of many. Ireland, Greece, Cyprus, etc. were soon to follow.
Yet unlike the bankrupt countries of southern Europe, Iceland dealt with its economic emergency in a completely different way.

DETROIT, USA TODAY, LEEDS, UK TOMORROW: Where neoliberalism is going

The Slog: I do find it fascinating that, now Detroit has finally defaulted, with other local administrations surely soon to follow, it doesn’t seem to occur to most American commentators that this is the beginning of the end for their country. If you move jobs offshore, then degradation, drugs and crime immigrate very quickly to replace them.
There are, of course, a thousand reasons why Detroit is broke, and the American Right is scribbling so much about it – in a hurry to blame the Democrat administration for everything – you could be forgiven for imagining their wrists might actually be engaged in a rather different activity. But at base level, the simple fact is that one President and Congress after another – starting with Reagan himself, easily the worst offender – carried on the myth of reducing the State when actually they were increasing the cost of it but delivering less to the Citizen. The cost increase was at least partly a result of borrowing money while pretending that America was still top of the heap (and so it was OK to strip out its home-grown assets to vultures like Romney) when in reality its traditionally global moneymakers were not moving forward at all.

25 Facts About The Fall Of Detroit That Will Leave You Shaking Your Head

By Michael Snyder: It is so sad to watch one of America's greatest cities die a horrible death.  Once upon a time, the city of Detroit was a teeming metropolis of 1.8 million people and it had the highest per capita income in the United States.  Now it is a rotting, decaying hellhole of about 700,000 people that the rest of the world makes jokes about.  On Thursday, we learned that the decision had been made for the city of Detroit to formally file for Chapter 9 bankruptcy.  It was going to be the largest municipal bankruptcy in the history of the United States by far, but on Friday it was stopped at least temporarily by an Ingham County judge.  She ruled that Detroit's bankruptcy filing violates the Michigan Constitution because it would result in reduced pension payments for retired workers.  She also stated that Detroit's bankruptcy filing was "also not honoring the (United States) president, who took (Detroit’s auto companies) out of bankruptcy", and she ordered that a copy of her judgment be sent to Barack Obama.  How "honoring the president" has anything to do with the bankruptcy of Detroit is a bit of a mystery, but what that judge has done is ensured that there will be months of legal wrangling ahead over Detroit's money woes.

Gold: Physical Demand Vs Paper Supply

From the huge demand for physical gold from Asia to repatriation demands, and from the draining of COMEX gold inventories to the excess supply of paper gold, there is an increasing 'gap' between the perceived 'price' of gold and the cost to get one's hands on the precious metal. Santiago Capital's Brent Johnson provides a brief but complete summary of the various conundra (which we have described in detail) occurring currently in the manipulated metals market. Perhaps the most telling phrase comes towards the end when Johnson notes, "I don't know how to say 'Hunt Brothers' in Mandarin, but it might not be a bad idea to learn." Chinese demand for physical gold has been surging...
