I'm guessing that once the French started shooting down tanks and military vehicles in the 'no-fly zone' over Libya members of the Arab League began to realise that they'd just been Tango'd and that they were being treated to an object demonstration of what's in store for them if they don't run their franchises more efficiently
Anyway, this latest round of 'just' slaughter serves the Libyans right for falling out with each other and threatening Western resource hegemony just before a monster earthquake hits Japan and initiates a huge unwinding of dollar positions
They won't be doing that again in a hurry

Whilst I was living in Christchurch (NZ) I was struck by how relatively blasé the locals were about living on the Ring of Fire.
Admittedly, procedures were in place in the event of a geological hiccup and low-rise building is very much the norm. However, a heck of a lot of that building was on top of cliffs, underneath cliffs or on soft, easily liquified ground. A couple of locals who visited my home were thoughtful enough to take the piss out of the month's supply of tinned food I had sitting in a cupboard.
The thing is, whilst tsunamis were seen as being very much on the cards, few people believed that Christchurch would ever be hit by a major earthquake - what with the nearest seismic fault being 80 or so miles away
Only, as it turns out, Christchurch sits directly, and I mean directly, on top of a major, previously dormant, fault and it hasn't stopped rumbling since it kicked off all of a sudden last September
Being a curious soul I've been wondering ever since how it is that a significant rupture in the Earth's crust would burst into life after being quiet for at least thousands of years?
The answer could have been, and still could be, a stochastic 'shit just happens' explanation and what happened to Christchurch is a localised one-off event with no systemic implications for anywhere else
However, some on-line Earthquake buffs (e.g.) have been suggesting that there is a spike in global seismic activity which has been building up over the last 2-3 years. The problem with knowing if they're onto something or not is the risk that these doom-sayers could be indulging in the kind of subjective, dot-joining based activities that veteran conspiraloons know and love
And then this chap posted this vaguely-frantic video a couple of days ago...

The answer to the question 'What costs eight pounds fifty and is full of more holes than a string vest?'
There was already a long list of unanswered questions arising from the the Official 7/7 Narrative before the 7/7 Inquest commenced. Whilst I, personally, did not expect that the Inquest would answer, or even address, the majority of these questions I did expect that the Inquest would at least attempt to describe the composition and design of the explosive devices used on 7/7
Given that inquests are usually held to establish the how, when and where of unnatural deaths it was reasonable to expect that the 7/7 Inquest would at least pretend to offer plausible answers to these questions in the context of 7/7
Rather than simply parroting other people's observations about the farce that is the 7/7 Inquest, I strongly recommend listening to 7/7 researcher and film-maker Tom Secker's recent interview with James Corbett here...
...as well as revisiting the J7 7/7 Inquest blog, particularly the entry covering the failure to carry out proper post-mortems on the 7/7 victims, here...
James Corbett has been one of the very few relatively high traffic alternative media personalities to give the Inquest anything like the treatment I believe it deserved. His interview with Tom Secker was part of an overview of the 7/7 Inquest which Corbett released as a podcast last Sunday. It is well worth a listen...
Abstracts of the almost overwhelming number of contradictions, unanswered questions, acts of misdirection and sins of omission that peppered the 7/7 Inquest will doubtlessly follow, hopefully on this blog as well as other sources, once the proceedings have formally closed. But, f*** me, even by the standards of past whitewashes this inquest has set some kind of new benchmark. It can only have been pulled off in the sloppy way that it has with a prior expectation by the perpetrators of total media complicity
There has been one small aberration in the total media complicity which, as sure as night follows day, accompanied the 7/7 Inquest and that took place in the Guardian...
Jihadi who helped train 7/7 bomber freed by US after just five years. Exclusive: Release prompts claim Islamist was US informant while assisting London terrorist
The al-Qaida supergrass and the 7/7 questions that remain unanswered. The early release of a jihadi turned US supergrass who helped a London bomber has rung alarm bells. Shiv Malik reports on doubts held by the victims' families
However, welcome as this aberration is, it barely scratches the surface of the flaws in the Official 7/7 Narrative and does not even start to address the fact that the Official Narrative of what happened that day is now even less well supported by anything that approximates to admissable evidence than it was *before* the inquest started
There is a very strong possibly, now verging on a certainty, that person or persons unknown are being allowed to literally get away with murder
