Pakistan says U.S. drones in its air space will be shot down [Awesome! It's about time.] 10 Dec 2011 Pakistan will shoot down any U.S. drone that intrudes its air space per new directives, a senior Pakistani official told NBC News on Saturday. According to the new Pakistani defense policy, “Any object entering into our air space, including U.S. drones, will be treated as hostile and be shot down,” a senior Pakistani military official told NBC News. The policy change comes just weeks after a deadly NATO attack on Pakistani military checkpoints ‘accidentally’ killed 24 Pakistani soldiers, prompting Pakistani officials to order all U.S. personnel out of a remote airfield in Pakistan.

Iran calls for UN condemnation of U.S. drone aggression 09 Dec 2011 Iran Thursday called on the United Nations to condemn a U.S. unmanned drone’s violation of its air space and sought “clear and effective measures” to end such “dangerous and unlawful acts” against the country. Mohammad Khazaee, the Iranian permanent representative to the United Nations, made the appeal in his letter to UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon. The ambassador said the “blatant and unprovoked air violation” is tantamount to an act of hostility against Iran in clear contravention of international law, in particular, the basic tenets of the UN Charter.

Iran Says it Shot Down US Spy Drone December 4, 2011

Iranian media report that Iran’s armed forces have shot down an unmanned U.S. spy plane after it allegedly violated Iranian air space.

The reports quote military officials who say the spy drone was not badly damaged and is in the Iranian military’s possession.

Iranian media say Iran’s military shot down the U.S. drone in the country’s east, but the reports do not say when the incident occurred. There was no immediate reaction to the reports from officials in Washington.

In July, Iranian state-run media quoted an Iranian lawmaker who claimed that Iran shot down a U.S.spy aircraft near the Fordu nuclear site. Iran’s Revolutionary Guard later refuted the report.

The U.S. and its Western allies have been in dispute with Iran over its controversial nuclear program.  Western nations say Iran is trying to obtain the capability to make nuclear weapons, while Iran says its nuclear program is for peaceful purposes.

Last month, a report by the U.N. atomic energy watchdog agency strongly suggested that Iran is researching nuclear weapons.

Occupy Movement Marks Two Months of Protests November 17, 2011

Hundreds of Occupy movement protesters are rallying in New York Thursday, as part of a national day of action supported by other demonstrations across the country.

In New York’s financial district, the situation intensified as hundreds of anti-capitalist demonstrators pushed back against police and dismantled barriers that police erected around Wall Street.

Thursday is the two-month anniversary of the Occupy Wall Street movement, and protesters have promised a major show of strength.

New York police say at least 50 protesters were arrested as the group attempted to disrupt the New York Stock Exchange.

The latest development comes two days after the city evicted protesters from Zuccotti Park in Lower Manhattan, where they had been living in tents since September. They were allowed to return to the public space, but were prohibited from camping there.

The protesters say they plan to take Thursday’s demonstration to New York’s subways and major bridges.

Other demonstrations were taking place Thursday in Los Angeles, California, Portland Oregon and other U.S. cities. Demonstrators in Washington D.C. plan to march on the Key Bridge connecting Washington to Virginia as part of a nationwide “Get on the Bridge” call to action.

Rallies also were planned overseas in Belgium, Germany and Spain.

In the U.S., tensions between protesters and local authorities have escalated as police move to clear protester encampments.  The clearing of the Occupy camp in New York follows recent evictions in cities such as Portland, Atlanta, Georgia and Oakland, California.

After police dismantled the Zuccotti Park camp Tuesday, demonstrators filed a motion seeking to be allowed back in with their tents and sleeping bags.  But a judge ruled that the New York park’s ban on sleeping did not violate the protesters’ constitutional right to free speech.

New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg said he agrees with the judge’s decision that free speech does not include the right to “endanger the public or infringe on the rights of others by taking over a public space.”

Zuccotti Park has been the epicenter of the Occupy protest movement, sparking similar occupations of other public spaces throughout the United States and in other countries.

Herman Cain stumbles badly on Libya question –Cain said he has ‘all this stuff twirling around in my head.’ [Yup, lots of empty space in his head to accommodate the real estate required for all that 'stuff to twirl around.'] 14 Nov 2011 Herman Cain struggled to explain his position on President Obama’s handling of Libya in an interview with the Journal Sentinel of Milwaukee released Monday, at one point asking if Mr. Obama supported the uprising and suggesting he was having a hard time articulating an answer because he has “all this stuff twirling around in my head.”
