HT: Sultan Knish.Europe in Twilight.It is not too incredible to imagine that within a century, German, the language of Goethe, Schiller and Mann, may become a dead language. That is already the almost certain fate of the Swedish and Norwegian languages. French, Spanish and English will survive as the pidgin languages of distant colonies, but in their own capital cities, these languages are swiftly becoming transformed into dialects, crossbred with Middle Eastern and African intonations and jargon to become increasingly alien to their own origins.

Florida Sees New Threat to Its Beaches.The Obama administration has sought a six-month ban on deepwater drilling in U.S. waters to reassess risks and establish new safety procedures if necessary. But any new rules wouldn't reach Repsol's project in Cuban waters.In the event of a spill in Cuban waters, many ships, equipment and personnel from the U.S. Gulf Coast could be prevented from helping because of the embargo. But that may be changing. A Treasury Department spokeswoman said some U.S. firms involved in oil cleanup have been issued licenses to travel to Cuba in case oil from the continuing spill hits beaches there.""I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will faithfully execute the Office of President of the United States and will to the best of my ability, preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States."Remember Mr Obama,who the hell do you work for?

If Israel Attacks Iran In July 2010…July of 2010 has plenty of merit to be the month of the event. We already know that Iran has enough uranium for two nuclear bombs, it just has to be enriched to a higher grade. That right there is enough to get things started but there are other factors involved also.
The date will also depend upon the targets that Israel plans to hit. If the nuclear plant at Bushehr is on the target list, the window for attacking this plant before it goes online is about to close
