Ivory Coast: Up to 18 dead in street clashes

Posted on 12.16.10 by Thomas L. Knapp

“Gunfire and explosions shook Ivory Coast’s main city Thursday as supporters and security forces loyal to the two men claiming to be president clashed, killing up to 18 people amid fears the violence could push the country toward another civil war. The toll of 18 dead cited by senior opposition official Amadou Coulibaly could not be immediately confirmed …. The bloodshed across Abidjan is part of a risky push to take control of state institutions by Alassane Ouattara, the widely recognized winner of an election that millions once hoped would reunite the West African nation.” (12/16/10)

“A British court granted bail to WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange Thursday after rejecting an appeal to keep him in jail while he fights extradition to Sweden to answer allegations of sex crimes. … The judge endorsed the stringent bail conditions imposed by the lower court, which included a 240,000-pound ($374,000) surety and the requirement that Assange wear an electronic tag and abide by a curfew. When he is released, Assange will swap the stark surroundings of Wandsworth prison in London for a friend’s country mansion in Suffolk, eastern England, and report regularly to police as conditions of the bail.” (12/16/10)

Ron Paul: Fed monopoly broken if Americans use metals as currency

“As the incoming chairman of the House monetary policy subcommittee, Rep. Ron Paul (R-TX) will hold the bully pulpit when it comes to the nation’s money woes. He’s not wasting any time getting right to the heart of the matter. The libertarian-leaning conservative has long been a critic of the US Federal Reserve and central banking as a whole, but this may be a new one: speaking with CNBC recently, Paul said he views the Fed as a ‘monopoly’ that could benefit from the introduction of competition. ‘We should start ending the Fed by allowing competition,’ he said.” (12/16/10)

Tax deal: Estate tax is new sticking point

“An $858 billion package to cut taxes and help the long-term unemployed was unexpectedly pulled from the House Thursday, suggesting that Democratic leaders underestimated the depth of opposition to the bill as well as the possibility that House members could amend it.

“The Massachusetts Public Health Council voted unanimously yesterday to ban the sale and manufacture of baby bottles and sipping cups containing the chemical BPA, but turned aside a push by environmental activists for more sweeping restrictions on use of the chemical linked to possible health risks in children. Bisphenol A is used in a wide variety of products, including plastic bottles, children’s sipping cups, and the lining of canned food containers. Children and adults can ingest tiny amounts of BPA when they drink or eat from the containers, and studies of laboratory animals have suggested that the chemical could cause developmental problems for children if they are exposed to small quantities early in life.” (12/16/10)

Report: KLA behind deadly human kidney trade

Posted on 12.14.10 by R. Lee Wrights

“Civilians detained by the Kosovo Liberation Army were allegedly shot to death in northern Albania so their kidneys could be extracted and sold on the black market after the war in Kosovo ended in 1999, according to a report prepared for Europe’s premier human rights watchdog. The report by Council of Europe investigator Dick Marty — more than two years in the making — also suggested Kosovo’s U.S.-backed prime minister was once the ‘boss’ of a criminal underworld behind the alleged grisly trade.” (12/14/10)

Iraq: Nine killed, 72 wounded

Posted on 12.14.10 by Thomas L. Knapp

“At first, it seemed the religious holiday of Ashuraa would result in fewer reports of violence, but several large attacks have occurred in the last few days, today included. At least nine Iraqis were killed and 72 more were killed across the country in the latest brutalities. The holiday culminates on Thursday and, incidentally, highlights the schism between Sunnis and the Shi’ites who are marking the martyrdom of Hussein ibn Ali. Shi’ite processions and trips to Karbala make these pilgrims easy targets for violence.” (12/14/10)

“The head of a Sunni-backed political party will join the Shiite-led government being assembled by his top rival, a spokeswoman said Tuesday, clearing a final hurdle to end months of tortuous, postelection dealmaking. The breakthrough cements what the Obama administration has been pushing for as U.S. troops prepare to leave Iraq by the end of 2011: an inclusive government that distributes power among Sunnis, Shiites and Kurds to forge stability after more than seven years of war.” (12/14/10)

“As President Obama prepares to release a review of American strategy in Afghanistan that will claim progress in the nine-year-old war there, two new classified intelligence reports offer a more negative assessment and say there is a limited chance of success unless Pakistan hunts down insurgents operating from havens on its Afghan border. The reports, one on Afghanistan and one on Pakistan, say that although there have been gains for the United States and NATO in the war, the unwillingness of Pakistan to shut down militant sanctuaries in its lawless tribal region remains a serious obstacle.” (12/14/10)

In carefully worded public comments in recent days, senior U.S. and South Korean officials also have argued that the new plant could not have been constructed so rapidly unless there was a sophisticated network of other secret sites — and perhaps a fully operating uranium enrichment plant — elsewhere in the country.” (12/14/10)

Lawsuits: The newest investment scam?

“Some call it a disturbing trend Others call it a win-win for accident victims and low to middle-income families across America who might not otherwise be able to afford to seek justice in a court of law. The issue is legal lending; to plaintiffs who don’t have the money to pay for surgery related to a claim or pay their bills while their case is tied up in court, or to law firms who can’t afford to hire expensive experts or survive a lengthy drawn-out battle with a corporate giant. Supporters say more legitimate cases are now being heard and that means more little guys are now getting an opportunity for justice. Critics say this practice leads to an increase in frivolous cases that clog courtrooms.” (12/14/10)

Turkey: Draft law to ease regulations on gun ownership draws ire

Posted on 12.14.10 by Mary Lou Seymour

“Possible amendments to gun laws that are intended to ease restrictions on owning and carrying small arms have faced much criticism in Turkey. The bill, currently in subcommittee at Parliament, ensures easier access to guns, allowing people to own as many as five weapons and the right to carry two of them at one time. Some civil society organizations underline that such regulations will lead to more crime and will threaten lives, especially those of women and children, but supporters of the amendments argue that easing procedures to obtain a license for weapons will make it easier to track them.” (12/14/10)
