Obama to meet Abdullah- its a bad when have more agreement with Abdullah than Obama

 

Obama to meet Saudi King Abdullah among significant policy differences

President Barack Obama visits Saudi Arabia on Friday, and will meet with the King, Abdullah bin Abdulaziz Al Saud. There are significant policy differences separating the two:

  • King Abdullah first broke with President Obama during the "Egyptian Revolution" at the start of the "Arab Spring" in January 2011. In Abdullah's view, Obama humiliated Egypt's president Hosni Mubarak and encouraged him to step down. Abdullah believes Mubarak supported U.S. policy for decades, even when it wasn't popular to do so, and Obama repaid him by throwing him under the bus. Abdullah concluded that Obama would not hesitate to throw him under the bus just as easily.
  • After President Obama's "red line" flip-flop on Syria last year, Abdullah was so furious that he turned down an opportunity to appoint a Saudi to the United Nations Security Council. He accused Obama and the United Nations of hypocrisy, for allowing Syria's president Bashar al-Assad to kill and displace millions of civilians with impunity.
  • The Saudis believe that Obama is going to permit Iran to develop a nuclear bomb, and fears that it will be used on Saudi Arabia.
  • The Saudis consider Egypt's Muslim Brotherhood to be a terrorist group, but Obama has all but broken relations with Egypt since last year's army coup that ousted president Mohamed Morsi and his Muslim Brotherhood government. This issue has split the Arab world, with Qatar supporting the MB, and Saudi Arabia is one of three countries that have withdrawn their ambassadors from Qatar. Abdullah believes that Obama is a supporter of two of his enemies, Iran and the Muslim Brotherhood.

Are they Surprised? Pentagon concerned that Russia is about to invade Ukraine

 


U.S. officials are saying that Russian troops have been flooding into the region along the border with Ukraine in the last few days. The estimates of the number of troops range from 30,000 to 80,000, with Ukrainian officials claiming that the number is as high as 100,000.

Nato's Supreme Allied Commander Europe Gen. Philip Breedlove has said that the Russian force on the border "is very, very sizable and very, very ready." Since the Russian troops are deployed right on the edge of Ukraine's border, if they do invade then there'll be no advance warning, and no chance for Ukraine's forces to react. A U.S. defense official says that if Russia were to invade, then this would be "far from a bloodless event as we saw in Crimea," although the Ukrainian army would be defeated. It's possible that the Russian forces could push through Ukraine to the other end very quickly, to annex Moldova's separatist territory Transdniestria, which is on Ukraine's western border.

Cranking Up Putin’s Privatized Propaganda Machine

Bloomberg.com:

Never heard of the “Crimean Spring?” That’s probably because you haven’t been watching Russian television lately.

As troops have occupied Crimea in recent weeks, Russian television has depicted President Vladimir Putin’s annexation as an awakening that saved the region from being overrun by fascists -- part of a propaganda effort rivaling the machine that shaped public opinion a generation ago.

“What’s happening now with state media and especially TV is unprecedented, even for the Soviet era,” said Tatiana Vorozheykina, lead researcher at the Levada Center in Moscow, Russia’s only independent polling company. “These are propaganda instruments and no one hides it.”

The message is unrelenting: Correspondents across Ukraine and Russia weigh in several times daily with reports on chaos in Kiev, the desperate plight of Russian-speakers under the new regime, and the overwhelming support of Russians for the annexation. The campaign crowds out debate and helps bolster Putin’s approval rating.

In today’s privatized media environment, the news is packaged much more slickly than ham-handed Soviet-era fare -- no more turgid reports of government ministers visiting collective farms -- but it still follows the party line.

Creative Propagandists

State-run channels such as the all-news Rossiya24 are complemented by NTV television, owned by Gazprom-Media, an arm of the state-controlled gas monopoly OAO Gazprom. Ren-TV and Channel 5 are owned by billionaire Yury Kovalchuk, a close adviser to Putin and among the 20 officials targeted by U.S. sanctions.

A recent evening newscast on Channel 1, one-quarter controlled by Kovalchuk and the rest by the state, showed smiling women holding babies in the Crimean city of Simferopol, cheering on Russian troops. The focus shifted to Kiev, where the correspondent described a chaotic situation and the shooting of three traffic cops. It then turned back to Russia, where a grizzled veteran at a St. Petersburg rally held aloft a “Bravo Putin” banner and a middle-aged man got teary-eyed as he lamented the situation of Russian children in Crimea.

“A new generation of propagandists has grown up, and they are very creative,” said Galina Timchenko, former editor of news website Lenta.ru. “Russian propaganda is now more agile than in Soviet times.”

Inappropriate Statements

Deputy communications minister Alexei Volin disputes the suggestion that Russian media use their position to unduly influence public opinion.

“In modern democratic Russia, there is no propaganda machine,” Volin said in an e-mail. “It’s not those who criticize that get closed. Those who break the law do.”

Independent media that have been sidelined include Kasparov.ru, a forum for Putin opponents run by ex-chess champion Garry Kasparov. Access to the site was blocked on March 13 for allegedly calling on Russians to join unauthorized rallies. And in January, many leading cable television systems dropped Dozhd, an independent TV station that had given airtime to dissident rockers Pussy Riot.

Editors and reporters at outlets who don’t toe the line can be fired or demoted. Yuri Fedutinov, director of Ekho Moskvy radio, which often criticizes the Kremlin, in February was replaced with an executive from state-funded Voice of Russia. Writing in the daily Vedomosti this month, Andrei Zubov likened Crimea to Germany’s 1938 annexation of Austria. On March 24, his employer, the Moscow State Institute of International Relations, said Zubov’s contract had been canceled due to his “inappropriate” public statements.

Extremist Content

Lenta.ru editor Timchenko was sacked after she ran an interview with the leader of a Ukrainian ultra-nationalist group. Roskomnadzor, a government agency that regulates the media, had said the site was publishing “extremist content.”

“My dismissal was partially related to our Ukraine coverage, but it has more to do with the gradual elimination of free media,” Timchenko said.

With such pressure increasing, the bulk of news outlets hew close to the message the government wants them to deliver, said Masha Lipman, an analyst at the Carnegie Moscow Center, a political research group.

“There is a shared line of coverage but not necessarily a centralized guiding body,” Lipman said. “Media executives just know what the line is, and many of them feel that way too.”

Scotch Whisky

Indeed, even before the current crisis, most Russians believed Crimea belongs to their country. For decades, Lipman said, polls have registered overwhelming support for that view.

“I don’t think TV is able to completely overturn people’s beliefs,” Lipman said. “This propaganda is falling on fertile soil.”

The message has been reinforced by foreign experts on chat shows and news broadcasts who back separatist movements in places such as Kosovo, Catalonia and Scotland. On Rossiya, a Scottish distiller was quoted saying that his whisky takes three years to mature -- long enough for Scotland to gain independence from the U.K.

Rossiya and other state-run channels have run clips of Gregor Gysi, leader of Germany’s Die Linke party, calling some of Ukraine’s new leaders “fascists.” And they have cited a CNN interview with New York University professor Stephen Cohen defending Russia’s stance on Crimea. What, the professor asked, would the U.S. do if Canada and Mexico suddenly joined an economic or military alliance with Putin?

Canadian Alliance?

It works. A survey by Levada this month said 63 percent of Russians believe state media portray an objective picture of Ukraine. In 2013, Reporters Without Borders ranked Russia 148th out of 179 countries in its Press Freedom Index, down from 141 five years earlier.

Putin’s approval rating reached 82 percent last week, according to the Russian Public Opinion Research Center, up from 61 percent in January. Another poll by the same group found that 91 percent of Russians support annexing Crimea and 83 percent say their country should defend Russians in the region even if it hurts relations with other countries.

“We are seeing claims by Russia that fascism is returning to Ukraine,” said Gene Policinski, chief operating officer at the Newseum Institute, a research group in Washington, D.C. “Repetition of this message can create a psychological tendency for people to think, ‘Of course that’s going on.’”

MOVIE :NON STOP - Liberal Agenda - places 9-11 Victims family member and VET As Villain

 

Stephanie Zacharek of the Village Voice similarly laments that Neeson doesn't have better material to work with. "If only 'Non-Stop' were worthy of him," she writes. "Neeson does just about everything right in this terror-in-the-skies thriller." The problem, it would seem, is the overall preposterousness. "Nobody's demanding an action-thriller plot that's 100 percent plausible," Zacharek says. "But is 55 percent too much to ask?"



http://www.latimes.com/entertainment/movies/moviesnow/la-et-mn-non-stop-liam-neeson-movie-reviews-critics-20140227,0,3858322.story#ixzz2ur1uFL7k

SPOILER ALERT

Normally, I'd go see a Liam Neeson movie if it came out. In fact, I've seen the trailer for Neeson's new movie, "Non-Stop," and I thought, "that looks good...I'm thinking it's one I'm going to put on the list to see!" (I'm a big thriller and action-movie kind of gal. If you ask me what my favorite Christmas movie is, I'll usually say Diehard.)

But when I read this, I thought to myself, "Self...Hollywood needs a nice kick right square in the nuts." Now, the source link is all warn-y and "SPOILER ALERT!" and it uses ALL CAPS TO TELL YOU that it's literally telling you the end of Liam Neeson's new movie. But I personally don't give a rat's behind that I'm doing that. If you're reading this, you're more than likely someone who would've been completely and totally peeved by the ending anyway, so I may be saving you about 30 bucks in admission and the price of concessions - not to mention a lot of irritation - by giving you the gist here.

You're getting the gist here, in case you didn't realize that by now, folks.

:-)

Anywho, here's the setup:

Neeson plays a "burned-out, alcoholic flight marshal hoping for a nice easy flight in first class, where after sneaking a smoke and drink, he might be able to catch a little shut-eye. A text message informing him that one person on the flight will die every twenty-minutes unless $150 million is wired to an account, ruins that plan. Counting pilots and crew, there are around 150 souls on board. Marks has 20 minutes to figure out which one is the bad guy. Red herrings abound. Is it one of the many actors whose faces we recognize but names we can't remember? People start to die. Marks is fingered as the hijacker. Who's doing this? Why are they doing this? What is their motive?"

And here's your spoiler:

...the villain is not a hijacker but a terrorist -- someone who wants to murder everyone on the plane to further a political goal.

The terrorist is a 9/11 family member. Yes, you read that right; the terrorist is a 9/11 family-member who lost a loved-one in the World Trade Center on that terrible September morning.

It gets worse…

After 9/11, this 9/11 family member-turned-terrorist then joined the military but found himself disillusioned by the pointless wars.

And now…

The 9/11 family member-turned-terrorist is upset because America hasn’t done enough to ensure there will never be another 9/11. And so he figures that if he can get an air marshal blamed for a terrorist attack, America will wake up and anally probe us before we're allowed on a plane, or something.

It gets worse…

The villain's sidekick is a member of the American military willing to murder 150 innocent people for a payday.

It gets worse…

The one passenger on the plane who is forever helpful, kind, reasonable, noble, and never under suspicion is a Muslim doctor dressed in traditional Muslim garb including a full beard.

And there you go.

I'm actually shocked that the villain wasn't a Tea Party member. But I digress.

Hollywood can totally suck it.

The one possible caveat to give viewers is that the actual villains turn out to be former soldiers in the Afghan and Iraq wars, who are bitter about having lost loved ones in 9/11.

- we say its a huge manipulating ploy to get an anti american message out !
