Tony Bennett: Are we the terrorists?

From: RTAmerica  | Sep 28, 2011  
There has always been a thin line between exercising your right to free speech and being considered radical. Many celebrities have expressed their view on certain topics and have gotten in trouble for them. The latest of those celebrities is Tony Bennett. Should these celebrities be forced to eat humble pie?

Gerald Celente: The system is rigged

From: RTAmerica  | Sep 28, 2011 
In 2008 Goldman Sachs was one of two major investment banks that were bailed out. Shortly after, it was reported that they were giving huge bonuses. Now Goldman Sachs is laying off employees and making absurd cost cutting measures. Gerald Celente, a publisher for the Trends Journal, joins RT to talk about this.

Postponing Agony: Greece on EU cash needle

From: RussiaToday  | Sep 29, 2011 
German lawmakers have agreed to massively increase the size and power of the Eurozone's bailout fund - meaning Berlin will guarantee a whopping 211 BLN Euros' worth of loans. Greece is watching this closely, as it tries to convince the EU and IMF to release more emergency cash. But the Greek public's anger is focused on facing more cuts and tax hikes, as Sara Firth reports from Athens.

Weekend Chillout

Well after this week's market turmoil we all definitely need to chillout, and as the precious metals seem to have moved into a consolidation phase or at least a holding pattern we might be able to get some respite.

Due to the madness of the last week or so what else could this week's chillout be but.....

Sade ~ Nothing can come between us

I always hope that you remember
We'll never really learn the meaning of it all
What we have is strong and tender
So hold on
In the middle of the madness
When the time is running out and you're left alone
All I want is you to know that
It's strong still
Can't pull us apart
Nothing can come
Between us
Nothing can pull us apart
Can come
Between us

I always hope that you remember

What we have is strong and tender
In the middle of the madness

Hold on

Al-Qaeda warns Ahmadinejad to stop denying 9/11

This story is just too funny, you couldn't make this up. The US created Al-Qaeda is begging Iran's President to blame them for 911 instead of their "sworn enemy" haha....

From the UK Telegraph:

By Damien McElroy, Foreign Affairs Correspondent

In a curious case of enemies uniting against a common foe, the Yemen-based compiler of the terrorist organisation's Inspire magazine wrote that President Ahmadinejad had appeared "ridiculous" when he questioned the origins of the attack that killed almost 3,000 people.

"The Iranian government has professed on the tongue of its president Ahmadinejad that it does not believe that al Qaeda was behind 9/11 but rather, the US government," it said. "So we may ask the question: why would Iran ascribe to such a ridiculous belief that stands in the face of all logic and evidence?"

US diplomats led a Western walkout at the UN General Assembly meeting last week during President Ahmadinejad's speech when he suggested the Osama bin Laden was killed to cover up the events of September 11.

"Would it not have been reasonable to bring to justice and openly bring to trial the main perpetrator of the incident in order to identify the elements behind the safe space provided for the invading aircraft to attack the twin World Trade Centre towers?" he said.

He had previously jointed other "doubters" on the fringes of the political spectrum in claiming the attacks were a "big fabrication" on

Peak Silver?

I have been meaning to write a magazine article on Peak Silver but the research for it was doing my head in, but no matter seems Ryan Jordan has beaten me to it.....

The idea of peak everything has made a comeback over the last ten years, and it may not be a coincidence that this discussion has paralleled the rising prices of many commodities since 2000. However, thinking about resource scarcity is nothing new. Many alive in the 1970s will remember the book Limits to Growth, which is still debated decades after its initial publication. Whether or not you agree with all aspects of that book’s arguments, you would have to concede that ever-increasing growth rates eventually lead to exponential (and therefore unsustainable) demand. Also, to say that something has “peaked” does not mean that we are going to run out of a certain resource. In many cases it simply means that the growth rate in resource production cannot keep up with population or economic in full
