Binocular Snapshot for 6/04/2011

LastDayWatchers as God intensify his curse on the Bush/Obama Administrations you will see

Bombers kill 24 at Iraq mosque, hospital

"Bombers killed 24 people in attacks on a mosque in central Iraq frequented by provincial officials and later at a hospital where the victims were being treated, officials said on Saturday.

The attacks came a day after a spate of coordinated bombings in west Iraq killed 10 people,

raising questions over the capabilities of Iraqi security forces just before all US forces must pull out."

Four Western troops were killed in an explosion Saturday in eastern Afghanistan

"the coalition said. NATO's International Security Assistance Force also disclosed the deaths of two service members in the south a day earlier.

Before arriving in the country, Gates acknowledged that the American public was growing tired of the nearly decade-long war.

and said that sentiment would play a part in decision-making about the course of the conflict."

Signs are increasing that the American people are growing tired enough over fighting two and a half (or whatever the right number is, depending on how you count what's going on in Libya)

"The war in Afghanistan, now the largest and most expensive in terms of ongoing operations, and now in its tenth year of U.S. involvement, has been the subject of several expressions of impatience

Then, of course, there is the Iraq War. It is still by far the most expensive of the expeditions in terms of cumulative costs, with the bill now exceeding $800 billion in direct costs and with all the eventual indirect costs making it more like a three trillion dollar war."

Paul Wolfowitz declared, “There is a lot of money there,” which could be put to “a good use instead of building Saddam’s palaces.”

Surely there is a limit to how much more a nation that was duped into such a misadventure should be expected to endure."

The War on Islam continue

NATO uses attack helicopters for first time in Libya air assault

"NATO used attack helicopters for the first time Saturday as part of its military operation aimed at increasing pressure on Libyan leader Moammar Gadhafi's regime.

NATO warplanes belonging to the United Kingdom's Royal Air Force fired Paveway guided bombs and destroyed two main battle tanks and two armored personnel carriers belonging to Libya's military, said Maj. Gen. John Lorimer"

And more opening to the gates of Islam

Once one of America's most-valued allies in the war on terror but now considered a liability by the Obama administration,

"Yemeni President Ali Abdullah Saleh was wounded Friday in the first violence to strike the presidential compound here since 

demonstrators began demanding Saleh's resignation four months ago, at least four and perhaps as many as seven presidential guards were killed in the attack, and several members of Saleh's government also were wounded, including the prime minister and the speaker of parliament

Word that Saleh had been wounded was greeted with jubilation in the sprawling protest camp that has grown up outside Sanaa University."

And the failures mount up

Intensive Care Required For Sick US Economy

"The lousy job figures have cleaned the clocks of the equity market and been a boon to the bond market, driving rates down below 3% on the 10 year note and driving up bond prices. Last weeks auctions of the 2 year, 5 year and 7 year treasuries were oversubscribed.

This is serious; what cures are there for pathetically small job creation and the suffocating weakness in real home prices? Dr. Bernanke has no magic potions. Congress and the White Houyse are bewildered. The big Wall Street houses just plain wrong on their prognostications.

Here’s a dispiriting rule of thumb to consider. Self-reinforcing trend are fine when the econokic cycle is in the up phaser; but they are disastrous when the downturn starts gaining momentum.

Housing prices have fallen over 30% and are supposed to rebound in a recovery. But, insterad they have contiunued to lose another 7.1% in value during the past 2 years of a stock market climb of 80%. And there are estimates of many millions more homes where the mortgages are larger than the homes are worth."

And the popcorn continues to pop!

Chile volcano erupts, spits towering ash column

"A volcano dormant for decades erupted in south-central Chile Saturday, belching ash over 6 miles into the sky and prompting the government to evacuate several thousand residents

"The Cordon Caulle (volcanic range) has entered an eruptive process, with an explosion resulting in a 10-kilometre-high gas column," state emergency office ONEMI said."
