Former marine Josh Rushing reports on how the US prisons in Iraq are turning into big business.
He visits the world's biggest arms exposition and travels to Iraq to see how one prison is attempting a new strategy with its inmates.
Last year, Barack Obama, the US president, called Afghanistan the new frontline in America's fight against al-Qaeda linked groups.
Now Obama has explicitly linked the group al-Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula with the attempt to blow up a US-bound passenger jet on Christmas Day.
Meanwhile, authorities in Denmark say a man who tried to kill a cartoonist has "close relations" with Islamic fighters in Somalia - the latest in growing international alarm about threats coming from new directions.
Owen Fay reports on the possible expansion of the the US's "war on terror".

Obama Approves $30 Billion in Military Aid to Israel Over Next Decade
As the single largest expense of the 2010 foreign aid budget, President Obama approved $2.775 billion in military aid to Israel, the first payment in a decade-long commitment that will reach at least $30 billion.
Last year, Israel’s military budget amounted to $13.3 billion, so the US funding is a significant portion of their overall expenditure. The US formerly provided both military and civilian aid, but it has since been folded entirely into military aid, at Israel’s request.
The money is not a blank check, however. The US requires that Israel spend at least 75% of the money given in military aid with US military contractors, effectively using the foreign aid budget to subsidize domestic weapon-makers.

Today the US is spending more on war than the governments of 50 American states spend on education, healthcare and welfare of the American people, says journalist Sherwood Ross. "American people who voted for peace are finding that we have a greater war economy than ever before, said Ross. The idea of the Pentagon and the military-industrial complex is not necessarily to win the war, but to wage continuous wars to keep this inflated Pentagon budget sky high and that is what they are succeeding in doing".
WAR is a racket. It always has been.
It is possibly the oldest, easily the most profitable, surely the most vicious. It is the only one international in scope. It is the only one in which the profits are reckoned in dollars and the losses in lives.
A racket is best described, I believe, as something that is not what it seems to the majority of the people. Only a small "inside" group knows what it is about. It is conducted for the benefit of the very few, at the expense of the very many. Out of war a few people make huge fortunes.
In the World War [I] a mere handful garnered the profits of the conflict. At least 21,000 new millionaires and billionaires were made in the United States during the World War. That many admitted their huge blood gains in their income tax returns. How many other war millionaires falsified their tax returns no one knows.
How many of these war millionaires shouldered a rifle? How many of them dug a trench? How many of them knew what it meant to go hungry in a rat-infested dug-out? How many of them spent sleepless, frightened nights, ducking shells and shrapnel and machine gun bullets? How many of them parried a bayonet thrust of an enemy? How many of them were wounded or killed in battle?
Out of war nations acquire additional territory, if they are victorious. They just take it. This newly acquired territory promptly is exploited by the few the selfsame few who wrung dollars out of blood in the war. The general public shoulders the bill.
And what is this bill?
This bill renders a horrible accounting. Newly placed gravestones. Mangled bodies. Shattered minds. Broken hearts and homes. Economic instability. Depression and all its attendant miseries. Back-breaking taxation for generations and generations.
For a great many years, as a soldier, I had a suspicion that war was a racket; not until I retired to civil life did I fully realize it. Now that I see the international war clouds gathering, as they are today, I must face it and speak out.
Again they are choosing sides. France and Russia met and agreed to stand side by side. Italy and Austria hurried to make a similar agreement. Poland and Germany cast sheep's eyes at each other, forgetting for the nonce [one unique occasion], their dispute over the Polish Corridor.
The assassination of King Alexander of Jugoslavia [Yugoslavia] complicated matters. Jugoslavia and Hungary, long bitter enemies, were almost at each other's throats. Italy was ready to jump in. But France was waiting. So was Czechoslovakia. All of them are looking ahead to war. Not the people not those who fight and pay and die only those who foment wars and remain safely at home to profit.
There are 40,000,000 men under arms in the world today, and our statesmen and diplomats have the temerity to say that war is not in the making.
Hell's bells! Are these 40,000,000 men being trained to be dancers?
Not in Italy, to be sure. Premier Mussolini knows what they are being trained for. He, at least, is frank enough to speak out. Only the other day, Il Duce in "International Conciliation," the publication of the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace, said: http://www.lexrex.com/enlightened/articles/warisaracket.htm

Aaron Russo gave his life to produce this documentary. Sherry, a CPA,
Certified Fraud Investigator, received a 4-year sentence for telling
Americans the truth, although she broke no law. Please ask everyone to
send her an encouraging note so that she knows she is not alone or
forgotten. Let her know that this country is aware that she has been
moved, thousands are still watching her situation closely and praying
for her release. Anyone who has been in her situation cannot imagine how
much good is accomplished by countless cards and letters. It does much
more than just lift her spirits, which in itself is huge. It also lets
the system know that she is well-known and many are watching closely to
see that she is treated properly while in her federal cage, with two
long years to go! Here is her new address. Her loving husband believes
she has been moved again since she has been missing for over two weeks
and no one has heard a word from her. Diesel Therapy? Sherry Peel

VERITY And ORACLE -,The PROMIS Of The Future! - The Pandemic Virus is Not Only Lab-created,...it is PATENTED!
By A. True Ott, PhD, ND
On Sunday, August 30, 2009, I certify that I, Dr. True Ott, received the following letter.

Considering the potential risk of the A/H1N1/09 virus, I found the following study strangely coincidental. On June 17, 1996, the U.S. Air Force released Air Force 2025 "a study designed to comply with a directive from the chief of staff of the Air Force to examine the concepts, capabilities, and technologies the United States will require to remain the dominant air and space force in the future." In the unclassified study, the College of Aerospace Doctrine, Research and Education at Maxwell Air Force Base in Alabama posed several "fictional representations of future situations or scenarios" likely to arise. In Chapter 5, page 55, the authors present a time line figure representing "plausible history". In 2009, according to the report, influenza will kill 30 million people.
The study also suggests that no one determined if the virus was a natural mutation or bioengineered.

Alternate Futures for 2025: Security Planning to Avoid Surprise
This "study" is absolutely shocking to me in a number of ways. It clearly shows that the U.S. Air Force, as well as the Pentagon itself, has utilized a very powerful computer technology known as "Artificial Intelligence" (A.I.) to create a model for a "future world". By utilizing A.I. "drivers" - SIX VIRTUAL REALITES complete with PLAUSIBLE HISTORIES were created. From these SIX virtual reality "cyber-worlds" - the elite "power-brokers" could then formulate the Utopian IDEALS they envision for their myopic view of the "WORLD ORDER" in 2025. The computer would then give the world's elite detailed instructions or "marching orders" as to how the "drivers" (i.e. current events) would have to be manipulated for this END to be accomplished. In other words, their vision of their desired END RESULT would forge their current MEANS - or global actions, month-to-month, and day-to-day. Under this A.I. computer model, NOTHING WOULD HAPPEN BY CHANCE - only by means of a pre-determined, prescribed design.
