Throughout history, regime change often has ulterior motives — particularly when it comes to control of natural resources. The Invasion era, during which American armed forces overthrew the governments of Afghanistan, Grenada, Iraq and Panama. One of the most infamous and drawn out instances of this resource-focused regime change began in with the government of Honduras. The Honduran government gave tax exemptions along with plots of land to foreign corporations in order to expand their mining and agriculture industries. Some native Hondurans were able to exploit these Liberal economic policies to their benefit, but the vast majority of the allowances actually went to American corporations which had the capital on hand to purchase the land and quickly develop it.

The idea of dating a white girl I don’t plan to stay with is morally repulsive to me, because I’m wasting her time. The jewess I have in mind even passes as white and all. The other option would be a Japanese chick but they’re rarer here, specially pretty ones (let’s face it, pretty Asians aren’t common even in Asia and they’re an anomaly).

Please forgive us, this will not be your full guide to all things military craft, we just want to give you a taste of the machines our governments are flying over our heads. The first versions of this craft weighed in at just under 1 lb, one version for land, the other for water. The upgraded unit weighs a little over 2 lbs, but can land on water or ground. This folding drone packs camera sensors under a inch wingspan. Soldiers can pack this machine into a backpack, then get 45 minutes of flight at up to 40 mph for basic reconnaissance and surveillance needs.
They were showing off their collaboration with Fire What? Their high flying ScanEagle is small enough to soar high out of the way of firefighting efforts. ScanEagle is a 40 lb drone able to fly up to 92 mph. The neat thing about the ScanEagle is that you do not need an airstrip. The craft does not have landing gear. Instead, it takes-off out of a launcher, which extends into a retrieval system. The end of each wing has a hook, that hook catches the cable held up by the extended launcher.
The drone never has to touch the ground. I want to be as clear as they were, the ScanEagle III was built specifically for commercial operations, not military, but it will serve for the military as well.

Reuters When it comes to relationships, Pyongyang tries to instil “love for revolutionary comrades” over romance, but people reject it. North Korea was going through a lot of dramatic changes during my 20s.

European court rejects appeal by Lithuania, Romania on CIA prisons 9th October , 0 comments The European Court of Human Rights said Tuesday that it had rejected appeals lodged by Lithuania and Romania over its ruling they were complicit in a controversial programme of secret CIA detention centres on their territories. In May the court found that both countries knew two suspects caught after the September 11, , attacks would risk torture while held at the “black sites” from to Saudi national Abd al-Rahim al-Nashiri claimed he was illegally held and tortured at an undisclosed site in Romania, while suspected Al-Qaeda operative Abu Zubaydah alleged the same while in Lithuania.
A US Senate report determined that both men — considered “high-level detainees” — were subject to “enhanced interrogation techniques” including waterboarding while in detention. The ECHR found that in both cases the suspects were effectively within the national jurisdictions of Lithuania and Romania, which were therefore “responsible for the violation” of their rights under the European Convention on Human Rights. Bucharest and Vilnius have steadfastly denied the existence of secret CIA prisons in their countries.
But the European court had already condemned Poland in for allowing both Nashiri and Zubaydah to be held at a CIA site there in and In the wake of the September 11 attacks, the CIA took suspected Qaeda detainees to several “black sites” around the world to escape US rules on interrogations — a programme that has since been judged illegal. Other punishments inflicted at the sites included intense sleep deprivation, being crammed into coffin-size boxes and “rectal rehydration” to get suspects to talk.
