Gates of Vienna News Feed 4/12/2010

Gates of Vienna News Feed 4/12/2010The Greek debt crisis has been “resolved” yet again, this time with a new loan totaling €30 billion from the EU-16 group of nations. The Greek stock market rose 4.2% in reaction to the news. News reports do not indicate how Greece will be able to repay the new loans any more readily than it could repay the previous batch.

In other news, the new energy-saving light bulbs — which many people have learned to hate — have been found to interfere with television remote controls by flickering at a certain frequency when they are first turned on.

Thanks to C. Cantoni, CSP, Freedom Fighter, Gaia, Insubria, JD, KGS, TB, TV, and all the other tipsters who sent these in.

  1. U.S. Shouldn’t Play Nice on Nukes

    Under President Obama’s new policy, however, if the state that has just attacked us with biological or chemical weapons is “in compliance with the Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT),” explained Gates, then “the U.S. pledges not to use or threaten to use nuclear weapons against it.”


  2. News from Kyrgyzstan:

    Kyrgystan’s chief rabbi says Jewish community alarmed after riots, attacked for first time ever – Reuters

  3. JERUSALEM — Israel has issued an “urgent” warning to its citizens to leave Egypt’s Sinai Peninsula immediately.

    The warning refers to “concrete evidence of an expected terrorist attempt to kidnap Israelis in Sinai.”

    The statement from the Israeli prime minister’s office Tuesday took the unusual step of calling on families of Israelis touring the Sinai to establish contact with them.

  4. I helped to organise a small protest at the Villawood detention centre in Sydney on Sunday to vent our displeasure at the Australian government’s handling of our border security. Various ‘refugee advocates’ (including various socialist groups) decided to counter-protest and though the bulk of them were prevented by the riot squad from interfering with us, a couple of them did manage to inject themselves into our protest as you can see from this video ->

    There argument was simply to incessantly repeat that we were ‘white trash filth racists’ Such is the mindset of these people.

  5. darrinh,

    Can you write a report for AIM?
    Or, at least, post your video in a comment there.

    Oh, and next time you hold a protest, let everyone know. Might also be an idea to bring dogs like German Shepherds, Pitbulls or Rottwielers along.
