    The New Dominion ^ | Feb. 26, 2007 | Max Friedman
    As most of you have read or seen by now, a journalist and NBC/MSNBC media consultant named William “Bill” Arkin has created quite a stir by viciously insulting American soldiers in Iraq. He wrote at his Washington Post blog, “Early Warning: William M. Arkin on National and Homeland Security” column (1/30/07), that “… this NBC (Nightly News) report is just an ugly reminder of the price we pay for a mercenary - oops sorry, volunteer force that thinks it is doing the dirty work” re Iraq. The “report,” according to Arkin, featured “a number of soldiers (who) expressed frustration with...

    End-Time Prophecy Of Zechariah And The Neutron Bomb An Introduction "The Prophetic Visions of Zechariah" provides a glimpse "above history and time", peering into Israel's immediate and far distant future. Zechariah, like Jeremiah and Ezekiel was a priest as well as a prophet.  His prophetic writings focus primarily upon the restoration of the second temple in Jerusalem after the 70 year Babylonian captivity, but also foretells the coming of the Messiah to suffer an atoning death and later to reign as King over all the Earth. On the 24th day of the 11th month (Shebat), in the second year...
  • Al-Jazeera airs Iraq most wanted footage

    Excerpt - DUBAI (AFP) - Al-Jazeera satellite news channel broadcast a video recording Sunday of what it said was one of the most wanted members of ousted Iraqi leader Saddam Hussein's regime still on the run. The Qatar-based network gave no date for the purported footage of elite Republican Guards chief Saifeddin Fulayh Hassan Taha al-Rawi, who was number 14 on the most wanted list drawn up by the US military for the 2003 invasion. Rawi, who carries a one million dollar US bounty on his head, was also jack of spades on the "deck of cards" of 55 most...

    Consider the following dots: • Kim Jong Il is utterly dependant on China. • China has had an extensive and determined program to obtain US nuclear secrets. • Los Alamos, which had a program to develop a neutron bomb, and Wen Ho Lee, “lost” a hard drive with weapons design information on it. (I’m not saying Wen Ho Lee was a spy or anything like that)… • A neutron bomb has a low explosive yield from 10 tons to 1 KT. • North Korea’s bomb had an estimated yield of 0.5 KT right in the middle of the expected range....

    'Parlor Maid' tarnishes FBI Details of Leung-Smith spy case throw bureau's handling of investigation into question Details of Leung-Smith spy case throw bureau's handling By Ian Hoffman, STAFF WRITER Twelve years ago, a team of U.S. counterintelligence operatives flew into frigid southern Manchuria to assess Chinese spying on American diplomats. Instead, the U.S. agents came to believe their own team was tracked by China's Ministry of State Security every step of their mission, which is still classified today. The first clue was an odd elevator encounter in remote northeast China, an FBI agent bumping into a California nuclear-weapons scientist suspected...

    The controversial neutron bomb developed by the Americans has been put on the back burner. The bomb - properly called an Enhanced Radiation Weapon or ERW - is a specialised thermonuclear weapon which produces a minimal blast but releases large amounts of lethal radiation. It is designed to kill people while minimising damage to property unlike a conventional nuclear missile. President Jimmy Carter's administration had wanted to install neutron warheads on the Lance missile and artillery shells planned for deployment in Europe. 'Capitalist' bomb US military chiefs believed the weapon would be ideal to use against an advancing Soviet army...

    Financial Sense ^ | 2003-03-11 | Sam Cohen | Joseph Douglass
    In 1979, Pope John Paul II conferred on one of the authors (Sam Cohen) a peace medal for his invention, the neutron bomb. This was a small nuclear weapon designed to do its work, killing enemy military forces, without destroying a country’s infrastructure. The Nuclear Threat That Doesn't Exist – or Does It?by Sam Cohen and Joe Douglass March 11, 2003 U.S. administration spokesmen have said they have no evidence that Iraq has produced or acquired nuclear warheads. Implicit in their statements is the assumption that any such warheads would have to be fission warheads containing uranium or plutonium....

    Here is the Lucom Plan to save the United States from being destroyed as a great nation by worldwide terrorism. It could also save your life if the terrorists struck in your neighborhood. President Bush and Congress must realize the very survival of the United States as a great nation is now at stake. The United States will not survive unless President Bush and Congress take action now before there is another terrorist strike. This could be one of the last strikes against the U.S.

    LOS ANGELES - For most of Sam Cohen's life, he has struggled against politicians who, in his opinion, have sacrificed good sense when it comes to the nation's defenses. Cohen is the physicist who invented the neutron bomb, the one that kills people but leaves things like tanks and buildings intact. Plans to deploy his creations in Europe during the '70s and '80s awakened the "peace movement" across that continent, stopping its deployment. With that and other battles lost, the 76-year-old Cohen finds solace in his Brentwood home, nestled high on a hill overlooking Los Angeles. There the world is...
  • Saddam Hussein told Netanyahu in '98 he would not attack Israel

    Former Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu said Wednesday he exchanged secret messages with Iraqi President Saddam Hussein. Netanyahu said that in 1998, it was thought that Saddam might launch a missile attack on Israel, as he had done during the 1991 Gulf War. Netanyahu said the Iraqi ruler sent a secret message assuring Israel that he had no such intention. "I sent him a message and told him that this was a very wise decision on his part, so that he could understand what the significance would be if he acted against us," Netanyahu told Israel Army Radio. In the Gulf...
