Man asked to leave flight after critical tweet - Emirates 24/7

_______________________________________________________________________________
A Minnesota man and his two sons were asked to leave a Southwest Airlines flight after the man sent a tweet complaining about being treated rudely by a gate agent.

Duff Watson said he was flying from Denver to Minneapolis on Sunday and tried to board in a spot for frequent flyer privileges he held and take his sons, ages 6 and 9, with him, even though they had a later spot to board the plane.

The agent told him that he would have to wait if he wanted to board with his children. Watson replied that he had boarded early with them before and then sent out a tweet that read "RUDEST AGENT IN DENVER. KIMBERLY S. GATE C39. NOT HAPPY @SWA."

Watson told TV broadcaster KARE in Minneapolis on Wednesday that after he boarded, an announcement came over the plane asking his family to exit the aircraft. Once at the gate, the agent said that unless the tweet was deleted, police would be called and the family would not be allowed back onboard.

Gaza War: Obama Doesn't Want to Disarm Hamas :: Jewish

_______________________________________________________________________________
When Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu agreed on July 15 to the Egyptian cease-fire proposal, he said: "We agreed to the Egyptian proposal in order to give an opportunity for the demilitarization of the (Gaza) Strip - from missiles, from rockets, and from tunnels - through diplomatic means." Likewise, Netanyahu said at a televised news conference on July 16: "The most important thing vis-a-vis Gaza is to ensure that Gaza is demilitarized."

In the days to follow, international leaders began to align with Netanyahu' position.

_______________________________________________________________________________
The Chinese news agency Xinhua said that 151 people were under observation in the city of Yumen in Gansu province after authorities determined they had come in contact with a man who had died of the plague on July 16.

Xinhua said investigators believed the man had contracted the bacterial infection after contact with a marmot.

The report said all the people under quarantine were in good health, but 10 checkpoints were still blocking off parts of the city.

Bubonic plague killed millions of people in Europe in the 14th century and tens of thousands in China in the 19th century.

IDF Commanders: Time for decisive war move after IDF victories in Shejaiya, E. Rafah and Khan Younes

_______________________________________________________________________________
enior IDF commanders said Wednesday July 23 that the time had come for a decisive war move. Breaking up the Hamas' subterranean tunnels would take weeks, they said, but the critical encounter for completing their military mission and bringing the war to a close was still to be fought after three key IDF victories: The battle for Shejaiya grabbed the headlines, but the confrontations in eastern Rafah and eastern Khan Younes in the south were just as important.

The commanders are now urging a large-scale assault on the bunker complex housing Hamas' top military command and infrastructure. They say it is up to national leaders, i.e., the security cabinet, to determine the military' next move and the disposition of the forces present on the battlefields of the Gaza Strip.
The tank units could undertake the opening moves for the next, critical stage of the Israeli operation at no more than hours' notice.

Taranis Drone - Artificial Intelligence to take over the Skies

_______________________________________________________________________________
The British military has unveiled a new unmanned attack aircraft designed to use artificial intelligence to fly itself halfway around the world and select enemy targets on its own, highlighting fears that such military automation will one day lead to weapons that decide when to shoot as well.

The Taranis prototype, a stealthy jet-powered autonomous flying robot weapon system, is billed by the British government and defence contractor BAE Systems as the first of its kind.

Unlike most other unmanned aerial vehicles, which are controlled by humans on the ground and fly in a limited area in support of ground troops, Taranis could be programmed to fly itself between continents to reach enemy territory.

"It could then carry out intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance activity. . It's a combat aircraft with weapons so it could strike with precision weapons," said Squadron Leader Bruno Wood, the Ministry of Defence spokesman for the Taranis project.

He added that humans would "absolutely" be in control of deciding when to fire any weapons system. "That's something you would never erase the human element from."

The automation of weapons systems is a growing military trend, with the U.S. Army aiming to automate 30 per cent of its ground vehicles by 2015.

Germany Instructs Its Companies To Limit Cooperation, Procurement Orders With The US ~ ZeroHedge ::

_______________________________________________________________________________
Update: it just got worse. Moments ago Bloomberg followed up with the second, and expected, part of this story, namely that just like China cut off major US corporations from big procurement contracts leading to a collapse in CSCO and IBM Asian revenues, it is now Germany' turn. Per Bloomberg, the German Interior Ministry reviewing rules for awarding govt contracts for computer, communications equipment and services as political rift w/ U.S. widens, people familiar with matter told Bloomberg News' Cornelius Rahn, Amy Thomson.

    Ministry will probably issue new purchasing guidelines in coming weeks to replace "no-spy-order" dated April 30
    Details being worked out, may require suppliers of components of bidder' goods or services to guarantee they don't hand over confidential data
    IBM, CSCO, MSFT may be affected by any tightening of procurement procedures: Forrester Research analyst Andrew Rose

Congratulations America: after severing ties with Russia, crushing cordial relations with China (leading to this stunning announcement by China' president), alienating France (which is now openly calling for an end to the petrodollar), the Obama administration - following not one, not two, but three spying scandals in just the past year - has managed to sour relations with Germany to a point where one wonders just who is a remaining US ally in Europe these days.

Chuck Baldwin: The CFR Has Controlled Both Major Parties In Washington, D.C., For Decades :: Peace .

    Daily Paul Liberty Forum

"Just as they did with his father, Ron Paul, globalist elitists within the GOP are pouncing on Kentucky Senator Dr. Rand Paul. Obviously, the only reason for Republican leaders to be ganging up on Rand like this is because they are scared silly that he might just win the Republican nomination for President in 2016."

From LibertyCrier.com:

    If you had any doubts about how seriously some Republicans are taking the notion of a Rand Paul presidency, look at how far they're going to shut down his views on foreign policy.

    In the past three days alone, Texas Gov. Rick Perry used a Washington Post op-ed to warn about the dangers of 'isolationism' and describe Paul as 'curiously blind' to growing threats in Iraq. Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) accused the Kentucky senator on CNN of wanting a 'withdrawal to fortress America.' And former Vice President Dick Cheney declared at a POLITICO Playbook luncheon on Monday that 'isolationism is crazy,' while his daughter, Liz Cheney, said Paul 'leaves something to be desired, in terms of national security policy.'

    The preemptive strikes suggest that many in GOP fear Paul is winning the foreign policy argument with the American people-and that that could make him a formidable candidate in 2016. After all, second-tier presidential hopefuls don't usually get shouted down this way.

    ...

    Abrams said the GOP establishment is "genuinely concerned" about a Rand Paul presidency. Baloney! They are pee-in-their-pants, scared-out-of-their-minds about it.
