Binocular Snapshot for 9/10/2010

LastDayWatchers you should know how well Ahead of the Curve the May 15th Prophecy have put you in position; by providing you with 100% accuracy of God Word; and correct information; especially that of Manasseh circumstances


Now even those who where advocating for war, and blindly supporting the fail policies of the dark forces inside Israel (lost & found), Now the most educated views and leading voices of council even some amongst them are coming around to the wisdom of the U.S. troop needing to be pulled out of Afghanistan which God Word has been commanding upon the deaf ears of those with harden hearts


Here is what the most top of the top think tanks have to say on the matter


This from the


THE AFGHANISTAN STUDY GROUP


"At almost nine years, the U.S. war in Afghanistan is the longest in our history, surpassing even the Vietnam War,and it will shortly surpass the Soviet Union’s own extended military campaign there.


With the surge, it will cost the U.S. taxpayers nearly $100 billion per year, a sum roughly seven times larger than Afghanistan’s annual gross national product (GNP) of $14 billion and
greater than the total annual cost of the new U.S. health insurance program, Thousands of American and allied personnel have been killed or gravely wounded"


The U.S. interests at stake in Afghanistan do not warrant this level of sacrifice


President Obama justified expanding our commitment by saying the goal was eradicating Al Qaeda. Yet Al Qaeda is no longer a significant presence in Afghanistan, and there are only some 400 hard-core Al Qaeda members remaining in the entire Af/Pak theater, most of them hiding in Pakistan’s northwest provinces, America’s armed forces have fought bravely and well, and their dedication is unquestioned


But we should not ask them to make sacrifices unnecessary to our core national interests, particularly when doing so threatens long-term needs and priorities both at home and abroad"


"Instead of toppling terrorists, America’s Afghan war has become an ambitious and fruitless effort at “nation-building.” We are mired in a civil war in Afghanistan and are struggling to establish an effective central government in a country that has long been fragmented and decentralized"


This is from


NATIONAL SECURITY PREPAREDNESS GROUP


"Al-Qaeda and allied groups continue to pose a threat to the United States. Although it is less severe than the catastrophic proportions of a 9/11-like attack, the threat today is more complex and more diverse than at any time over the past nine years, Al-Qaeda or its allies continue to have the capacity to kill dozens, or even hundreds, of Americans in a single attack"


"American overreactions to even unsuccessful terrorist attacks arguably have played, however inadvertently, into the hands of the jihadists"


This is from


Bruce Hoffman


"Al-Qaeda and allied groups continue to pose a threat to the United States. Although it is less severe than the catastrophic proportions of a 9/11-like attack, the threat today is more complex and more diverse than at any time over the past nine years


"The conventional wisdom has long been that America was immune to the heady currents of radicalization affecting both immigrant and indigenous Muslim communities elsewhere in the West. We maintain that has now been shattered by the succession of cases that have recently come to light of terrorist radicalization and recruitment occurring in the United States"




More from others


"The attacks of Sept. 11, 2001, succeeded far beyond anything Osama bin Laden could possibly have envisioned"


"This is not just because they resulted in nearly 3,000 deaths, nor only because they struck at the heart of American financial and military power. Those outcomes were only the bait; it would remain for the United States to spring the trap"


The Bush administration convinced itself that the minds that conspired to turn passenger jets into ballistic missiles might discover the means to arm such "missiles" with chemical, biological or nuclear payloads. This became the existential nightmare that led, in short order, to a progression of unsubstantiated assumptions: that Saddam Hussein had developed weapons of mass destruction, including nuclear weapons; that there was a connection between the Iraqi leader and al-Qaeda.


Bin Laden had nothing to do with fostering these misconceptions. None of this had any real connection to 9/11. There was no group known as "al-Qaeda in Iraq" at that time. But the political climate of the moment overcame whatever flaccid opposition there was to invading Iraq, and the United States marched into a second theater of war, one that would prove far more intractable and painful and draining than its supporters had envisioned"


$1 trillion spent on two wars, more than 5,000 of our troops killed, tens of thousands of Iraqis and Afghans dead. Our military so overstretched that one of the few growth industries in our battered economy is the firms that provide private contractors, for everything from interrogation to security to the gathering of intelligence.


We have raced to Afghanistan and Iraq, and more recently to Yemen and Somalia; we have created a swollen national security apparatus; and we are so absorbed in our own fury and so oblivious to our enemy's intentions that we inflate the building of an Islamic center in Lower Manhattan into a national debate and watch, helpless, while a minister in Florida outrages even our friends in the Islamic world by threatening to burn copies of the Koran."


"This is a case not just of mission creep, but of mission multiplication"


"Defeat of the Taliban insurgency has been seen as virtually synonymous with the defeat of Al Qaeda, even though much of Al Qaeda’s organized capacities have been displaced to Pakistan.


But the two tasks are not the same. The original aim has been achieved: Senior American officials confirm that Al Qaeda is now hardly present in Afghanistan. The campaign against the Taliban, however, promises to remain extremely taxing if it is continued. Yet the Afghan Taliban poses no external threat to the West"

However what good are word of wisdom when you don't obey the Word of God?, is America really "safer"?

Nine years after 9/11, 'more conflict than ever'

"Most 9/11 family members believe the day should be reserved for prayer, service and remembrance" of the almost 3,000 who died, David Paine, co-founder of the 9/11 service group MyGoodDeed, said Thursday. "But this year, there's more conflict than ever."

Obama following Bush playbook on renditions

"It is one of the most shameful tactics in the war on terrorism.


The CIA calls it "extraordinary rendition" — intelligence-speak for seizing suspects and either interrogating them in secret prisons in Afghanistan and elsewhere, or turning them over to allies to extract information. That too often meant mistreatment, even torture"


America needs a thorough cleansing from this travesty, but that appears less and less likely to happen. In a 6-5 ruling on Wednesday, the federal appeals court based in San Francisco refused to let five former rendition prisoners even have their day in court. The court accepted the Obama administration's claim that if the lawsuit proceeded any further, it would expose "state secrets."

Also take notice of how the May 15th Prophecy has been 100% accurate in regard to the actions of China, now look at the true realties on the ground (see: May 15th Prophecy Another Year In Review, What Is Now?)

Why Foreign Businesses in China Are Getting Mad

"Foreign businesses in China are voicing growing frustration about the country's heavily regulated market — a bureaucratic maze many say is designed deliberately to hamstring non-Chinese players to the advantage of their local competitors"


"The proportion of European investments to China compared to the overall outbound investment from the E.U. is only 3%," he says. "There is not enough European investment in China."


"Though international investors have complained for decades about the bureaucratic hoops they have to jump through to access the China market, their concerns have been sharpened in recent years by a series of regulatory changes that appear directly intended to shut out foreigners"

Fireball tragedy in California suburb brings gas industry under scrutiny

"The natural gas industry is coming under intense scrutiny today, after a massive fireball ripped through a ruptured pipeline in a suburban town near San Francisco, killing at least four people, injuring dozens more, and burning more than 50 homes to the ground"


"Hydraulic fracturing, or fracking, a method developed by the Halliburton oil services company"


"a mix of water sand and chemicals such as diesel fuel to break up rock formations deep underground and free trapped deposits of oil and gas.


But industrial and federal studies have shown the process also leaves between 20% to 40% of the components of the diesel fuel in the ground. About 90% of the 450,000 natural gas wells in the US rely on hydraulic fracturing, Towns around America have documented contaminated drinking water from fracking"

"I want to know more about people that called who smelled gas. Where did they call? Who responded?" Maldonado said in a television interview. "There's a lot of questions still to be asked out there."

Officials had not been able to get near enough to determine what happened, according to PG&E President Chris Johns, who could not yet comment on the reports of people smelling gas.


"But we have records that we are going back right this minute to try to confirm what exactly those phone calls looked like and when they occurred," Johns told a news conference"
