News apart from North Korea well a few lines.

It’s really tiresome to read watch or listen to the news lately with all this big ado about North Korea but before I whiz off onto something else here are a few statistics you should take note of in my opinion. The USA has around 10,240 strategic and tactical nuclear weapons The Russian Federation has 3,814 nuclear weapons The UK has 200 weapons The UK also hosts 110 tactical nuclear weapons that belong to the US; UK Trident submarines typically go to sea with 48 warheads - that is the equivalent to 380 Hiroshima bombs. France has 348 nuclear weapons China is the smallest of the five officially recognised nuclear states and has a stockpile of around 188 nuclear weapons. `````````````````````````````````````````````````````````````````````````` Israel is the largest of the three 'unofficial' nuclear weapons states, with an estimated arsenal of between 75 and 200 weapons Pakistan is estimated to have produced sufficient weapons-grade uranium for between 30 and 55 nuclear weapons India is estimated to have a stockpile of approximately 30-35 nuclear warheads By early 2005 North Korea announced it had produced nuclear weapons. The US estimates that North Korea has anything from 1-15 nuclear weapons. So what for Goodness sake is the world really worried about with the North Korean scenario it has got me. And by the looks of things the Russians could really cause some grief if they wished. A thought for the new Inspector General of the UN Ban Ki-Moon when he takes the helm from Kofi Annan in January 2007. Thanks to Greenpeace international for the data. `````````````````````````````````````````` This is without doubt the most idiotic rubbish I have read regarding British Airways I always thought they were a responsible bunch but it seems not, they have actually suspended a Christian woman who wears a necklace with a crucifix to work, even though it allows Muslims and Sikhs to wear headscarves and turbans, according to a report from the Daily Mail. Below is a direct quote from British airways "There is no ban. The rule applies for all jewellery and religious symbols on chains and is not specific to the Christian cross," it said. "Other religious items such as turbans, hijabs and bangles can be worn as it is not practical for staff to conceal them beneath their uniforms." I guess Bangles could be put in their pockets or purses and yes well Turbans and Hijabs could be stuffed up you know where; Problem solved. The lady in question is suing I read and both parties appear to be waiting on an appeal. What with no smoking and other ridiculous laws and not just in the UK the whole world is taking a downturn, next thing you know breaking wind in the street will be a major crime. Wake up peoples. ```````````````````````````````````````````` Bushfires rage across four states in Australia. We seem to get this here every year but it does seem to be getting worse I have to admit but reading about it and listening to some of our native Australians it has been happening for millennia so its really nothing new just frightening; I can recall once as a young bloke coming back with the family in the car on a camping trip and flames were leaping across the road although warned by the boys in blue not to drive on I foolishly did but made it ok it was only about 20 metres or so but still stupid; no comments on this please I was an idiot I know that. `````````````````````````````````````````````````````` Three more satellites in orbit. Joining the rest of the junk orbiting our world, A pity some way could not be thought up to clear this junk I’m sure many scientists out there could at least conduct a study on it lets face it they do on mundane things so why not more important things. I really put this on as I found the article interesting so I hope anybody reading this does; was I plugging myself then lol oh well one can live in hope. The flight from Kourou in French Guiana was the fourth mission of the year for Arianespace, the company charged with operating Europe's launchers and it seems it lifts very heavy payloads, I notice the French are still hanging onto that colony of theirs. ``````````````````````````````````````````````````````````````````````` Why is the USA so frequently the victim of resentment around the world? I would say it’s federal government as like this article says The American people are generally a friendly, kindly and compassionate people (I can vouch for that). If they knew one tenth of what their governments get up to around the world and in their dealings with foreign governments and people, there would be an enormous outcry. For this reason much is hidden or obscured. Since the terrible events on 11 September 2001, many Americans have taken to the internet to find out more about the world beyond their borders. It would seem that in the case of the UN the veto option is used by the USA rather a lot as this site says we the great unwashed never hear of this or other things thank Goodness for the world wide web and the internet. The list of US veto’s is staggering yet I never read a lot of them; why; they were never reported in full, sounds like the old USSR doesn’t it. Removal of democratic elected governments is another since 1945; the USA has been responsible either directly or indirectly of helping in the removal of dozens of governments, many democratically elected, around the world. Sometimes the events are kept secret for years and only slowly come out. Other times, the events are the cause of demonstrations, anger and resentment at the time they occur. Yeah I too am starting to think now in a big way too. Below is a direct Quote and it shook me to the core. But a big deciding factor as I read it is business and access money of course. • “Reason 1: The reason given by the USA, its media and its friends around the world. Reasons like Communism, Terrorism, Human Rights, Freedom, Liberation, Weapons of Mass Destruction, etc. • Reason 2: The actual reason. This is usually hidden from the general public and has to be looked for in quotes by under-reported officials or subsequent events on the ground. Often, the victims of the change of government know the real reasons better than the populations of the Western countries. Real reasons are many but usually include Business Interests, Access to Resources, Markets, Military Bases, Strategic Value, or Political Support”. • The lists are endless it even includes my own country in it, if you by chance read this site I guarantee that you will be shaken to the core I know we are not all naïve but after reading this I was really staggered, no shocked and stunned is a better description.
