Another week, another Ebola infection and still no Ebola travel ban. This time, in crowded New York City. This after the government declared “U.S. Ramps up Fight on Ebola.” This time, a young American doctor who returned after treating Ebola victims in West Africa. I cannot believe we do not have a travel ban and/or mandatory quarantine and testing for everyone coming from West Africa. It seems too stupid to be stupid to “keep track” of people when we could just stop people from coming here, and we would not have to “keep track” of them.

Terror, terror everywhere in North America. The only difference is that, in Canada, they call it Islamic terror. In the U.S., they call it work place violence. You heard about the guy who took an ax to some New York City Cops. They shot the ax attacker dead, but not before he hurt some police.

Good news at the gas pump as prices are going down. How long is that going to last? Saudi Arabia has finally cut production to prop up oil prices. It’s not all good news as shale oil needs a price of $85 a barrel to turn a profit. That business could come crashing down as it is highly leveraged. Also, it’s is not all supply and demand causing the prices of crude oil to fall. It is financial war by the U.S. and the West to punish Russia over Ukraine.

It is now beyond stupid: the euphoric, consensus-beating data for every single month since May has been revised lower, by on average 6% and as much as 9%. Perhaps finally people will realize that there is only one number that matters in the Census bureau’s monthly new home sales report: the ±15.7 90% confidence interval. Well, people maybe, but not algos, who only care about one thing: whether the data beat or missed.

“Our predictions highlight the rapidly closing window of opportunity for controlling the outbreak and averting a catastrophic toll of new Ebola cases and deaths in the coming months,” said Alison Galvani, professor of epidemiology at the School of Public Health and the paper’s senior author. “Although we might still be within the midst of what will ultimately be viewed as the early phase of the current outbreak, the possibility of averting calamitous repercussions from an initially delayed and insufficient response is quickly eroding.” The model developed by Galvani and colleagues projects as many as 170,996 total reported and unreported cases of the disease, representing 12% of the overall population of some 1.38 million people, and 90,122 deaths in Montserrado alone by Dec. 15. Of these, the authors estimate 42,669 cases and 27,175 deaths will have been reported by that time.

Having been relatively quiet for a while, Russia’s leader Vladimir, speaking in Sochi (following meetings with Middle East crown princes who confirmed Russia as a key partner – “isolated”?), has unleashed his most aggressive statements with regard the failing world order: PUTIN SAYS U.S. DOLLAR LOSING TRUST AS RESERVE CURRENCY, WORLD WITHOUT RULES IS POSSIBILITY; ANARCHY GROWING. Adding that the risk of major conflicts involving major countries is growing, as well as the risk of arms control treaties being violated, Putin exclaimed that the US-led unipolar world is like a dictatorship over other countries and that “US leadership brings no good for others,” and calls for a new global consensus.

Despite the constant confirmation that New York “is prepared, and has been prepared for months” for an Ebola outbreak (that is extremely difficult to catch apparently), it appears Governor Cuomo and NJ’s Christie are more concerned than they are letting on. Having earlier admitted that the CDC’s screening guidelines are “insufficient” for New York regions’ population density, Reuters reports that Cuomo and Christie are considering “enhanced screening” where “all healthcare workers will be mandatorily quarantined.” Cue “state of emergency” proclamation and civil liberties ‘interrupted’...

After seven years, Iraqis finally received the justice they sought from the 2007 massacre in Baghdad’s Nisour Square during the U.S. occupation.

Private security guards employed by Blackwater Worldwide opened fire on September 16 in the middle of a busy Baghdad intersection, killing 17 Iraqis. The Americans claimed they were fired upon first, but the Iraqi government rejected this assertion and sought to try the Americans in court.

After many delays and setbacks, four of the security guards were convicted in a U.S. federal court this week on charges ranging from murder to use of an automatic weapon. The determination was that the tragedy was the result of a criminal act, not the product of battlefield warfare.

“This verdict is a resounding affirmation of the commitment of the American people to the rule of law, even in times of war,” Ronald C. Machen Jr., the U.S. attorney in Washington, told the media. “Seven years ago, these Blackwater contractors unleashed powerful sniper fire, machine guns and grenade launchers on innocent men, women and children. Today, they were held accountable for that outrageous attack and its devastating consequences for so many Iraqi families.”

Notably, Blackwater founder Erik Prince was neither criminally charged nor held responsible for the actions of his subordinates. “Just as with the systematic torture at Abu Ghraib, it is only the low level foot-soldiers of Blackwater that are being held accountable,” wrote Jeremy Scahill at The Intercept. “Prince and other top Blackwater executives continue to reap profits from the mercenary and private intelligence industries.”

During the 10-week trial, testimony was provided by witnesses to the slaughter at Nisour Square. Iraqi citizens recounted the indiscriminate shooting by the Blackwater guards, and the deaths of their children. Colleagues of the defendants also testified against them.

The massacre was “the most horrible, botching thing I’ve ever seen in my life,” testified former Blackwater contractor Matthew Murphy. “I’ve seen people completely unarmed, people doing nothing wrong, get shot.”

 

The prosecution presented evidence that the four defendants had bragged about killing Iraqis, and that sniper Nicholas Slatten, who fired the first shots, “made statements that he wanted to kill as many Iraqis as he could as ‘payback for 9/11.’”

Slatten was convicted of murder and faces a possible sentence of life in prison.

Three other defendants — Dustin Heard, Evan Liberty and Paul Slough — were convicted of voluntary manslaughter and using a machine gun to carry out a violent crime.

They each face a 30-year minimum sentence for the machine gun conviction alone, which is more than what they might receive for the manslaughter convictions, according to Matt Apuzzo at The New York Times.

A fifth guard, Jeremy Ridgeway, previously pleaded guilty to manslaughter and cooperated with prosecutors.

The defendants’ lawyers are expected to appeal the ruling.

Blackwater changed its name twice in the aftermath of the shooting. It is currently known as Academi.

Chechen President Ramzan Kadyrov says the ISIL terrorist group’s leader, Ibrahim Samarrai who is known by the alias Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, works for the US Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) and is financially supported by western secret services.

“Baghdadi should take off his mask and declare loudly and clearly that he is a CIA agent, that he has been recruited,” Kadyrov said on Tuesday, adding, “They (the ISIL militants) are Shaitans (devils) and their sole obsession is to grab as much money as they can lay hands on. They are acting on orders from the West and deliberately exterminating Muslims.”

The Chechen leader called on Samarrai to confess to committing atrocities including the massacre of Muslims.

“He must openly confess that he is killing his brothers in faith, to apologize to his coreligionists and to disband his gang.”

Kadyrov further noted that the western secret services have supported the terrorists by all possible means.

He also warned those Chechens who join the ISIL Takfiris that they will not be allowed to return to their homeland.

According to the president, his forces are trying to hunt down and eliminate Samarrai and other ISIL militants.

The ISIL terrorists currently control swathes of territory across Syria and Iraq. They have been committing heinous crimes in the captured areas, including mass executions and beheading of people.

A US Intelligence report, published in June, says 12,000 militants from 81 nationalities have joined the ISIL terrorists in Iraq and Syria.

In addition to hundreds of fighters reported killed in month of airstrikes, women and children among the many innocent bystanders left dead

A new assessment released Thursday by a human rights monitor on the ground in Syria reveals that in addition to the confirmed death of hundreds of soldiers aligned with either the Islamic State (ISIS) or the al Nusra Front that have been killed by U.S.-led airstrikes over the last month, dozens of civilians have also been killed in the bombings, including innocent men, women and children.

According to the U.K.-based Syrian Observatory of Human Rights, 553 people have been killed airstrikes conducted by the U.S.-led coalition airstrikes between September 23, when the strikes first began, and Wednesday, October 22. Of those, the group reports, at least 32 were civilians, including 6 children and 5 women. In addition, the SOHR believes the number of casualties is much higher, but based its latest assessment only on those deaths it could positively confirm.

The group also notes the coalition airstrikes consistently targeted oil fields in the countrysides of Der-Ezzor, al-Hasakah, and al-Raqqa which led to material damages and devastated oil refineries which have negatively impacted the local population. U.S. military officials have said they have targeted those facilities because they have been taken over by ISIS, but SOHR points out that civilians in those regions own those facilities and now face lack of fuel supplies and increased costs.

As the Associated Press reports, “The U.S.-led coalition has aggressively targeted IS-held oil facilities in Syria, which provide a key source of income for the militants. But such strikes also endanger civilians, which could undermine long-term efforts to destroy the militant group.”

In yet another blow for the doctors fighting the spread of this deadly disease, AP reports, Mali’s health minister says the West African country has confirmed its first case of Ebola. Despite every effort to close borders, quarantine areas, and now send US troops (to do… well we are not sure really), Mali becomes the sixth West African country to report an Ebola case. This dismal news comes just hours after the WHO director general said he had “reasonable confidence” that the Ebola virus plaguing three West African ountries had not spread into neighbouring states.
