Yankies go home

ISLAMABAD, Dec. 10 (Xinhua) -- Pakistani security forces took control of a strategically important airbase in the country's southwest Saturday evening after most of the U.S. military personnel have vacated the airfield, local media reported.

Pakistan had asked the U.S. to vacate Shamsi airbase in Balochistan province following NATO fighter jets and helicopters bombed two border posts on November 26 and killed 24 soldiers.

The U.S. had reportedly been using the airbase since late 2001 for military operations in Afghanistan and for drone strikes in Pakistan tribal regions, according to American and Pakistani media.

Pakistani Prime Minister Yusuf Raza Gilani said last week that the United States has been asked to vacate the airbase by December 11.

Pakistan's Geo television reported that the Frontier Corps took control of the airbase from the U.S. soldiers late Saturday evening as most of the American personnel have left the airfield. "Only one American cargo plane is still parked at the airbase which will transfer the remaining personnel and equipment," Geo TV quoted sources as saying.

US State Dept trying to ferment a new Russian Revolution?

 Perhaps the US State dept and CIA has gotten bored with fermenting unrest in key MENA countries and is going back to the old favourites.  On the Twentieth Anniversary of the collapse of the Soviet Union I think the New York elite are getting dewy eyed for the times when they called the shots in the Kremlin. After all the New York boys did sponsor Jacov SverdlovLev Davidovich Bronshtein, and their Lower East Side mates in the first Russian Revolution.

Things not to do with Gold

Wow, it even comes with its own gold digger
 From the Daily Mail:

Swiss businessman Ueli Anliker is selling the one-off supercar after transforming it using a team of 35 workers who spent a total of 30,000 man hours and more than £3.5 million.

He has renamed the 200mph plus Merc the 'Anliker McLaren SLR 999 Red Gold Dream'.

But his design changes have fallen flat, with Top Gear saying the paintwork could 'burn a hole through your eyes and into your nightmares'.

The garish body has 25 layers of red paint with 5kg of gold dust worked into it. Each of the car's wheels are covered in 24 carat gold as are the headlights and door sills

And the car's supercharged 5.4-litre engine has had power boosted from 640bhp to 999bhp - giving it a top speed of more than 210mph.
