In a damning new lurch towards web censorship, Google’s news aggregator has blacklisted Prison Planet and Infowars despite the fact that both websites are internationally known and now attract more traffic than many mainstream media websites, while Google-owned You Tube has frozen the Alex Jones Channel based on a spurious complaint about showing Wikileaks footage that has been carried on hundreds of other You Tube channels for months.After carrying our content for years, Google News last week purged Prison Planet and Infowars from its aggregator system, ensuring that our stories no longer appear alongside the likes of CNN and Fox News in a frightening early salvo in the move towards a tiered Internet that favors large corporations while independent voices are strangled.Only smaller sites that re-post Prison Planet content have appeared in Google searches since early November, proving that the campaign is a deliberate effort on behalf of Google to restrict traffic to Alex Jones’ websites. Our stories have been linked almost every day on the Drudge Report for the past three weeks, as our readership figures soar past numerous corporate media websites that are carried by Google News. We are clearly a legitimate and internationally recognized news outlet and yet Google has blacklisted us because it disagrees with our political viewpoints.In addition, Google-owned You Tube yesterday moved to freeze the popular Alex Jones Channel, which has well over 100,000 subscribers and has had over 75 million views. You Tube made a spurious claim that the channel had violated community guidelines by posting a segment from the infamous Wikileaks Apache footage, when the footage is in fact posted in greater length on hundreds of other You Tube channels, including Al Jazeera, Russia Today and CBS News.Double standards: You Tube targets the Alex Jones Channel for showing a brief segment of a video that appears on hundreds of other You Tube channels, including CBS News and Russia Today.

When we responded to You Tube by pointing out that the Wikileaks footage in question appeared in multiple places elsewhere on You Tube in far greater length and detail, and that it was not vulgar or offensive but a real incident that was of clear public concern which was posted under fair use (USC Title 17, Section 106A-117), You Tube reacted by freezing uploading privileges for the account while also threatening to terminate it entirely.You Tube is essentially sending a message that if you disagree with their decision, your claim won’t be considered, you will simply be punished to an even greater degree.

Canada Surrenders Sovereignty and Privacy to U.S. Secure Flight Program
Dana Gabriel Be Your Own Leader November 30, 2010


Canada is under pressure from U.S. officials to further comply with American security rules which in some cases, threatens its sovereignty and the privacy of its citizens. As a result of the war on terrorism, the U.S. government now has more power to restrict air travel and is not only dictating North American, but also international security measures.U.S. government now has more power to restrict air travel and is not only dictating North American, but also international security measures.Bill C-42, An Act to amend the Aeronautics Act would require Canadian airline carriers that fly over the U.S. to provide the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) with passenger information. This includes name, date of birth, gender, as well as passport and itinerary details when applicable. Airlines landing in the U.S. already have to supply this information, but allowing personal data to be shared on passengers who are only flying through American airspace essentially shreds existing Canadian protection and privacy laws. Bill C-42 complies with the Transportation Security Administration’s (TSA) Security Flight Program which would take effect globally at the beginning of next year. Most Canadian commercial flights pass over the U.S. while en route to Latin America, the Caribbean and Europe which in many cases would give the DHS the final say on who is allowed to travel to and from Canada.

Under Canada’s Passenger Protect Program, airlines must compare passenger’s names against a list that is controlled and managed by Transport Canada before a boarding pass is issued. Secure Flight transfers that authority from airlines to the DHS. TSA will be responsible for pre-screening passengers and their personal information against federal government watch lists. According to the Secure Flight Final Rule document issued in 2008, If necessary, the TSA analyst will check other classified and unclassified governmental terrorist, law enforcement, and intelligence databases, including databases maintained by the Department of Homeland Security, Department of Defense, National Counter Terrorism Center, and Federal Bureau of Investigation. With many well documented issues surrounding the accuracy of security watch lists, U.S. mistakes could further prevent more Canadians from flying to foreign destinations. There are also concerns that data collected on Canadian citizens will be readily accessible to a broad range of U.S. agencies and just what might be done with the information.Privacy Commissioner Jennifer Stoddart recently appeared before a committee examining Bill C-42. She acknowledged privacy concerns caused by increased aviation security measures which, have resulted in the creation of massive government databases, the use of secretive no-fly lists, the increased scrutiny of travellers and airport workers and greater information sharing with foreign governments. Stoddart explained that Bill C-42, will allow American or other authorities to collect personal information about travellers on flights to and from Canada that fly through American airspace and this, in turn, will allow American authorities to prevent individuals from flying to or from Canada. Public Safety Minister Vic Toews has insisted that the U.S would only use the personnel data for air security purposes, but Stoddart admitted, our understanding is that information collected can be disclosed and used for purposes other than aviation security, such as law enforcement and immigration purposes. The Canadian government has failed to sufficiently safeguard the privacy of its citizens and there are fears any information collected could be misused.

In October, NDP Member of Parliament Don Davies warned that Bill C-42 would give U.S. security agencies unprecedented access to Canadians’ personal information. He addressed a whole subset of data that could be obtained by U.S authorities through the passenger name record created when booking with travel agents. This includes, credit card information, who we are travelling with, our hotel, other booking information such as tours or rental cars, any medical condition of the passenger that may have been disclosed, dietary preferences, our email address, our employer information, our telephone information, our baggage information. Davis also added, This bill would effectively allow the United States to determine when Canadians can leave Canada to fly to many destinations in the world that have nothing to do with the United States. This bill violates Canadians’ freedoms. It violates Canadians’ mobility rights. Bill C-42 is an encroachment on sovereignty and gives the U.S. unprecedented power over who can board planes that fly over its airspace.In January of this year, following the failed underwear bombing and at the request of the U.S., Canada installed full body scanners at its major airports. So far, the Canadian government maintains that they will not institute aggressive TSA-style pat-downs, but another incident could change that. The new airport security measures can only be described as intrusive and degrading with some critics also labelling them as ineffective. In the U.S., there has been a growing public backlash against the use of naked body scanners and other invasive TSA security procedures. In an effort to prevent this discontent from spreading across the border, Canadian Transport officials have begun installing private search areas at designated airports. Booths set up at security checkpoints will give passengers the option of private pat-downs. In the near future, airport security practices could be expanded to other modes of transportation. Implementation of a high-tech control grid would further restrict, track and trace our movements.

Although the Security and Prosperity Partnership (SPP) may no longer be active (in name only), the harmonizing of some of its key priorities in areas such as traveller, cargo and aviation security, as well as others continues through different initiatives. Part of the SPP agenda also called for merging no-fly lists into a single North American database. In an effort to keep travel and trade moving across the border, Canada will be further pressured to adopt a single security strategy dominated by U.S. interests.Dana Gabriel is an activist and independent researcher.

Ireland's bailout boosts banks, inflames taxpayers By SHAWN POGATCHNIK, Associated Press – Mon Nov 29, 5:46 pm ET

DUBLIN – Ireland's international bailout boosted its bank stocks Monday but outraged many hard-pressed taxpayers, who questioned why the government's pension reserves must be ravaged as part of a deal that burdens the whole country with the mistakes of a rich elite.Shares in Ireland's banks rose sharply as markets were encouraged by the bailout's immediate focus on injecting euro10 billion into the cash-strapped lenders out of a total of euro67.5 billion ($89 billion) in loans.But the Irish were shocked by a key condition for the rescue — that the government use euro17.5 billion of its own cash and pension reserves to shore up its public finances, which have been overwhelmed by recession and exceptional costs of a runaway bank-bailout effort.

Opposition leaders and economists warned that the EU-IMF credit line's average interest rate of 5.8 percent would be too high to repay. They also questioned why senior bondholders of Ireland's struggling banks — chiefly other banks in Britain, Germany and the U.S. — still weren't being asked to bear some costs.This is not a rescue plan. It is the longest ransom note in history: Do what we tell you and you may, in time, get your country back, said Fintan O'Toole, a commentator and author who led a weekend protest by labor-union activists in central Dublin against the imminent bailout. He called the average interest rate being demanded viciously extortionate.The mood on Dublin's snow-covered streets was just as icy.We've been screwed by the IMF. It's going to be years and years until we're free of this, said Paul Flood, an unemployed 53-year-old Dubliner sheltering from the cold in a pub doorway. We have to use our own pension reserve, and we're still being stung with a 5.8 percent interest rate. It sounds ridiculously high.But the government's transport minister, Noel Dempsey, said the EU-IMF credit line has taken us out of the situation where we're at the absolute mercy of the markets.The high rate on the loans is also to discourage other countries from looking for cheap financing, said Patrick Honohan, the independent governor of the Central Bank of Ireland.It's not cheap funding, but it's cheaper, and it buys the government time to get its finances on track,he said.The senior International Monetary Fund negotiator, Ajai Chopra, insisted that the agreement's redeployment of Irish pension funds was the most cost-efficient course to take.Chopra said Ireland now was well positioned to reassure investors and eventually resume normal borrowing once interest rates being demanded on open markets fall.

This is a very good deal for Ireland in current circumstances, said Chopra, who arrived in Dublin 12 days ago to oversee negotiation of a bailout deal that leaders of all 27 EU nations approved Sunday at an emergency Brussels meeting.Still, bond investors Monday showed few signs of reassurance and instead kept selling the debt of the euro-zone nations considered most at risk of default: Greece, Ireland, Portugal, Spain and Italy.The yields on Ireland's 10-year bonds initially eased to 9.10 percent, reflecting some market relief, but then rose to 9.25 percent, a record high since the 1999 launch of the euro common currency.Yields on 10-year bonds also rose for Portugal, Spain and Italy. The yield for Greece — highest in the world since its own EU-IMF bailout in May — dipped to 11.77 percent after it was granted more time to repay its own loans.Chopra said it was smart to require Ireland to use its long-term pension money, which was earning around 1 percent interest, to reduce a bailout bill costing far more to finance.Ireland's three publicly listed banks surged on the Irish Stock Exchange following Sunday's euro85 billion agreement.

Honohan said Ireland would draw down euro10 billion to boost the banks' reserves over the coming two months, while euro25 billion more on standby for the banks might never be used at all. That money is a contingency fund to impress the markets, to say: Look, if things get really bad, that money is all there, Honohan said, adding he didn't expect Ireland to draw down the full loan on offer. Honohan said the fund would allow the capital ratios of Irish banks to rise to 12 percent, better than the international standard of 8 percent.The European Commission, meanwhile, approved the transfer of more toxic property-based loans to Ireland's year-old state bad bank, the National Asset Management Agency. It has already taken charge of hundreds of Irish construction sites, office blocks and housing developments gone bust since the 2008 collapse of the property-driven boom.Ireland faces at least a four-year fight to restore its deficits to the euro-zone limit of 3 percent of GDP from its currently postwar European record of 32 percent. Most of the bailout fund, euro50 billion, is designed to cover deficit spending over that period as the government seeks to slash its way back into the black.Prime Minister Brian Cowen last week unveiled a four-year plan to impose euro10 billion in cuts and euro5 billion in new taxes in this country of 4.5 million. The harshest cuts loom in the 2011 budget to be unveiled Dec. 7.Crucially, the government estimates that the economy can manage only tepid growth in the midst of unprecedented austerity.The European Commission is clearly less convinced. It offered Ireland a one-year extension to 2015 to reduce its deficit back within euro-zone limits, and published economic projections that are less optimistic than Ireland's own.

The commission expects Irish GDP to grow 0.9 percent next year and 1.9 percent in 2012. Ireland's deficit-fighting plan is based on expectations of 1.75 percent and 3.25 percent growth in those years.Chopra and Honohan say IMF and EU experts in coming weeks will subject each Irish bank to stress tests including worst-case scenarios to determine how much cash they need.Ireland has already committed at least euro45 billion to bailing out five banks, a bill the government was forced to concede it could no longer finance.Honohan said deposits in one of those banks — Anglo Irish — would be moved to a separate entity over the next few weeks, and that the bank's name will disappear. The bank's loan book will be wound down over several years, the central bank said.Shares in Irish Life & Permanent — the only bank yet to receive rescue cash — rocketed 56 percent off its record low from Friday. The bank, a specialist in insurance and residential mortgages, said Monday it doesn't require any state aid.Bank of Ireland jumped 22 percent as it announced plans to try to raise euro2.2 billion to avoid resorting to the latest bailout. Analysts expect Bank of Ireland to require state help to raise the cash, but fears are ebbing that the government would increase its 36 percent stake into majority ownership.Allied Irish Banks rose 10 percent, reflecting its humbled status as much more reliant on bailout funds and likely to face virtual nationalization soon.David McWilliams, a former Irish Central Bank economist who has argued for foreign bondholders to share losses, said that rather than shield public finances from the banking sector, the bailout soldered them together.Of course the bank shares will rise, he said of Monday's sharp gains. We've just put 10 billion in their pocket.AP writer David Stringer in Dublin contributed to this report.

PM faces anger over selling Ireland down the river by Andrew Bushe – Mon Nov 29, 8:08 pm ET

DUBLIN (AFP) – Outraged Irish opposition politicians and commentators lambasted Prime Minister Brian Cowen for agreeing to the terms of an EU-IMF rescue deal they slammed as a sell-out.Cowen insisted the 85-billion-euro (113-billion-dollar) bailout was the best deal available for Ireland, helping to shore up its banks and allowing his government to operate without imposing further tax rises or spending cuts.But the main opposition Fine Gael party called the agreement appalling, insisting the 5.8 percent annual interest rate on the loan -- higher than that paid by Greece when it was bailed out in April -- was unaffordable.This is a hugely disappointing result for the country. It's hard to imagine how this deal could have been much worse, said Fine Gael finance spokesman Michael Noonan.People are right to feel frightened, and worried about the future, when our own government has sold out the country on such lousy terms.Opposition parties have demanded Cowen quit over his handling of the crisis in the former Celtic Tiger economy, but he insists he will not call an election until early next year, after lawmakers pass a forthcoming budget.The budget to be presented on December 7 will outline cost-cutting measures for the first year of a four-year plan to save 15 billion euros. Cowen says the austerity plan is a pre-condition to the bailout.The draconian measures sparked mass protests in Dublin on Saturday and many people digesting the news of the bailout in the Irish capital on Monday were clearly angry.It's a farce, said Deirdre, a stay-at-home mother, arguing that the deal had been rushed through and agreed at extortionate lending rates.A man in his 40s, Enda McMullen, told AFP: The final act of our government is to shaft its own people. Thanks guys.Labour Party leader Eamon Gilmore denounced the deal struck Sunday with the European Union and the International Monetary Fund as a national sell-out.

This is a sad and sorry day for our country and the direct result of Fianna Fail (Cowen's party) mismanagement and irresponsibility,he added.Gerry Adams, whose nationalist Sinn Fein party won a fifth parliamentary seat in a by-election last week at the expense of Cowen's party, also called the rescue package a terrible deal.
He added that plans to raid the National Pension Reserve Fund to pay for Ireland's 17.5-billion-euro contribution to the loan were a disaster.Irish newspapers rounded on the bailout Monday, with the Irish Daily Mail saying the country had been sold down the swanny.It is pure fantasy to think the Irish people can afford to pay this bill. The taxpayer is being saddled with all the pain, while the bondholders get off scot-free. It is scandal, pure scandal, said the Irish Sun.However, the Irish Times said the bailout agreement was a difficult but essential deal, and the Irish Independent said: We will face years of hardship but it is well to know the worst.The governor of the Central Bank of Ireland, Patrick Honohan, has defended the package, saying it sets out a clear economic and financial path for Ireland and insisting the interest rate was realistic.People are not trying to scalp you. OK, they are not charging the cheapest interest rates that are ever found but they are trying to ensure that the economy comes back to strength again,he told RTE state radio.Anglo Irish Bank -- one of those rescued by the state -- will wind down its loan book over a number of years and will agree a revised restructuring plan by January, the central bank said separately in a statement Monday.

Tourism Minister Mary Hanafin said the rate was lower than Ireland would pay if it borrowed on the financial markets, where sliding investor confidence has sent the cost of Irish government bonds soaring in recent weeks.The bailout was intended to stop the crisis over Ireland's debt spreading to other heavily-indebted eurozone countries such as Portugal and Spain, but those hopes faltered Monday when the euro slumped to a fresh two-month low.Fine Gael enterprise spokesman Richard Bruton warned: If Europe sets a cliff too steep for Ireland to scale, it won't solve its own problems no more than Ireland's.

THIS 25 BILLION IS NOTHING.THE AMERICANS WILL BE FORCED TO PAY BACK THE 28 TRILLION THE BANKERS GOT FROM LAST YEARS TOTAL PAYOUT.THATS A LOT OF CARBON TAXES AND OTHER SKYROCKETNG PRICES AMERICANS WILL BE SLAVED TO PAYING.

TARP bailout to cost taxpayers $25 billion: CBO
– Mon Nov 29, 7:00 pm ET


WASHINGTON (Reuters) – The U.S. Troubled Asset Relief Program, which risked up to $700 billion of government funds to bail out troubled banks and automakers, will cost taxpayers a mere $25 billion, according to an estimate released on Monday by the nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office.CBO's latest assessment of the widely reviled program is lower even than the Obama administration's own estimate of less than $50 billion, which was criticized as too rosy after it was issued at the end of September.Clearly, it was not apparent when the TARP was created two years ago that the cost would turn out to be this low, CBO said in its report.With bailed-out firms returning to health, the government will spend less than previously thought on assistance to insurer AIG and automakers like General Motors, CBO said.Additional stock repurchases by formerly troubled Wall Street firms and lower-than-expected participation in mortgage programs has also lowered the cost, CBO said.With the country still struggling to emerge from the deepest recession since the 1930s, many backers of the bailout have paid a heavy political price. Republicans like Senator Bob Bennett and dozens of Democrats lost their seats this year in part due to their support for the program.(Reporting by Andy Sullivan; Editing by Jackie Frank)

Wall Street slips as euro concerns linger By Edward Krudy - NOV 29,10

NEW YORK (Reuters) – Stocks edged down in a low-volume session on Monday on worries Europe's credit crisis will spread despite a weekend agreement to bail out Ireland.
But stocks finished well off their lows of the day as the dollar retraced some of its earlier gains and energy and financial stocks rallied late in the session.While stocks tracked movements in the euro on Monday, a strong U.S. jobs report on Friday could bring the focus back to the economy and break the strong tie between U.S. equities and the euro.The correlation between the euro and stocks has become more pronounced in recent weeks as the euro zone's debt problems resurfaced, with traders selling the euro and stocks together.Tell me what the euro's going to do and I'll tell you where the (stock) market is going to go, said Michael James, senior trader at regional investment bank Wedbush Morgan in Los Angeles.Banks and energy stocks outperformed the wider market as crude oil futures rose 2.3 percent and banks recovered some of their recent losses.The KBW bank index rose 1 percent, helped by Bank of America (BAC.N) , which climbed 1.5 percent to $11.31, while Exxon Mobil (XOM.N) reversed earlier losses to close up 0.3 percent at $69.45.Light volume added to volatility, and traders turned their attention to technical markers in the absence of more fundamental news. The S&P 500 bounced off its 50-day moving average, preserving the lower end of its recent trading range.In the wake of a stronger-than-expected start to the holiday shopping season, investors took profits on a two-week rally in retail stocks. The S&P retail index (.RLX) fell 0.7 percent.

The Dow Jones industrial average (.DJI) dropped 39.51 points, or 0.36 percent, to 11,052.49. The Standard & Poor's 500 Index (.SPX) fell 1.64 points, or 0.14 percent, to 1,187.76. The Nasdaq Composite Index (.IXIC) lost 9.34 points, or 0.37 percent, to 2,525.22.European Union finance ministers endorsed an 85 billion euro loan package to help Ireland bridge its deficit, but investors worried how the 16-nation bloc might handle a wider crisis involving Spain and Portugal.The CBOE Volatility index (.VIX), known as Wall Street's fear gauge, rose 3 percent to hit its highest level since early October, indicating anxiety among investors was increasing.The 22-day correlation coefficient between the euro and the popularly traded E-Mini S&P futures has risen to 0.54, which shows a meaningful relationship between the two assets compared with an insignificant 0.06 correlation two weeks ago.The problems in Europe overshadowed signs of improving sentiment among consumers heading into the high-spend holiday season.The number of shoppers in stores over the long U.S. Thanksgiving holiday weekend rose 8.7 percent compared with 2009, according to a private survey.Online retailer Amazon.com Inc (AMZN.O) rose 1.3 percent to end at $179.49 after hitting a record high $181.84 on expectations of solid sales on Cyber Monday,a day of steep discounts for online shoppers.FedEx Corp (FDX.N) added 4.7 percent to $91.59 after Credit Suisse raised its rating on the package shipping company.(Reporting by Edward Krudy; Editing by Kenneth Barry)

EU downplays chance of climate alliance with China
ANDREW WILLIS Today NOV 29,10 @ 19:02 CET


EUOBSERVER / BRUSSELS - The EU has downplayed the chances of a new climate alliance with China, despite analyst predictions such a move could spur a reluctant US into taking stronger action. As UN multilateral talks get under way in Cancun, Mexico, the European Commission's top environment official Connie Hedegaard said the 27-member bloc would co-operate closely with China, but added that a specific bilateral initiative could prove illusive.We will work very closely with the Chinese, as with a lot of other key parties, Ms Hedegaard told journalists in Brussels before heading to Mexico this weekend.I have seen some press reports asking why doesn't the EU and China ally themselves and then everything will fall into place, she added.I'm not sure its that easy. There are many parties that we have to co-operate with.The Danish politician stressed the need for give-and-take between developed and emerging economies on the range of difficult issues up for discussion. To us it really means a lot whether we get progress in the field of transparency,she said, reiterating European calls for a system to measure, report and verify (MRV) national emission cutting efforts. Wealthy countries have made this a central demand of their poorer counterparts before committing to aid transfers.A number of analysts have called for closer EU-China co-operation in recent weeks however, including Chatham House energy research director, Bernice Lee.With the collapse of climate legislation in the US, it is up to the EU and China as the world's largest markets for low-carbon goods and services to strengthen their role as the locomotive of the low-carbon economy,he wrote in a paper last month.

Environmental groups also agree a Sino-EU alliance would have advantages.The biggest emitters - China and the US - are the biggest players,WWF climate activist Jason Anderson told this website. The key question at the moment is how to bring pressure on the US.Despite the recent US mid-term elections ushering in a wave of climate change sceptics on Capitol Hill, together with the White House's failure to enact cap-and-trade legislation this year, Ms Hedegaard said she remained optimistic. It shouldn't be an obstacle in itself,she said. As part of the EU's balanced package, European negotiators will push this week for non-binding emission pledges made last December by various countries to be anchored in the UN process.Brussels also wants an agreement on transparency rules (MRV), reform and expansion of carbon market mechanisms, as well as a mechanism to reduce tropical deforestation.

Brussels: EU economic growth spurt not likely to last
LEIGH PHILLIPS Today NOV 29,10 @ 18:07 CET


EUOBSERVER / BRUSSELS - The European Commission tried to put a positive spin on the highly uncertain results of its twice-yearly economic forecast issued on Monday (29 November), cheering an economic recovery in the EU and the eurozone that is making progress.Domestic EU GDP is predicted to increase 1.7 percent in 2011, down from a growth rate of 1.8 percent this year, and two percent in 2012, similar to predictions in the bloc's spring forecast.EU economics chief Olli Rehn said: The economic recovery has taken hold ... However, this recovery is uneven and many member states are going through a difficult period of adjustment.However, a growth spurt seen in the second quarter of 2010 was exceptional and not likely to last, said Marco Buti, the director general of the commission's economics department as a result of weak global demand and the disappearance of European stimulus.Mr Buti described the pace of the recovery as gradual and rather uneven across member states.
The level of uncertainty for our outlook continues to be very high, he said, introducing the forecast. In particular, the risks to the global economic environment seem tilted to the downside.He said that as it was only as the forecast was going to print that the eurozone's sovereign debt crisis began to re-emerge.

Indeed, a replay of the negative feedback loop [from the crisis] ... cannot be excluded, he continued, saying that if such a reality were indeed to materialise, this would htrow a spanner in the wheels of recovery.He added however that the bloc is not of the opinion that such a scenario is likely, thanks to Europe's bail-out mechanisms and a recovered health of the European banking sector in autumn 2010, with improved capital ratios within banks, signs of normalisation in the money markets and lending to the private sector that has begun to pick up.The forecast underscores that the global economy is set to go through a temporary soft patch in 2011, dampening EU export growth.Despite brightening since the spring, the outlook remains for a rather jobless recovery and potentially persistent high unemployment ahead.The major bright spot, the analysis said, was that the upturn such as it exists is set to be ntoably strong in Germany,where econmic activity is expected to expand by 3.7 percent this year, more than double that of the euro area.France is just below the area average, Italy half a percentage point lower and Spain due for continued recession. Outside the euro area, Poland is the only EU economy to have escaped a recession last year, although UK recovery is expected to match only the moderate EU average. A rebound is strong however for Slovakia (4.1 percent) and Sweden (4.8%), with these two performers posting th highest growth rates in the bloc.

GDP is set to contract in Greece, Latvia, Romania, Bulgaria and Ireland.The United States and France have consistently fretted about a lack of German domestic demand if there is to be a turn-around in Europe. In parts of the document, the authors are optimistic on this front, talking of a gradual strengthening of domestic demand in Germany while elsewhere of a noticeable pick-up the situation, as a result of overflow from a rising import content from German exports.Asked by EUobserver about this point, a commission source said: Actually, we are even a bit on the cautious side here. Many [German] corporations have put forward wage increases in the last year and we should also have a look at high level of private sector savings rates, which now has the possibility of coming down.There was also a decline in investment in equipment in 2009. So we should an increase there as well, given that we have some shortages in some sectors. We also see less outsourcing to Eastern Europe.It is however true that we are maybe a bit optimistic in terms of Germany's overall position as some of the major - although not all - major trading partners within the EU will have to cut back in terms of imports.

Economic homeopathy

Engelbert Stockhammer of the Vienna University of Business and Economics however said the commission's was cynical and rather daring to call this rebalancing, given the size of the problem.This is an adjustment of sorts, but eyeballing the commission's forecasts, German's current account surplus goes down by about 0.2 percent of GDP per year, he said.This would mean that it would take a mere 25 years for German surplusses to have disappeared.For this rebalancing to take place, the southern European countries will shrink by some five percent. Rebalancing now essentially means shrinking of the southern European economies. German wages would have to increase by, say, 5-7 percent per year, for, say, five years to make a real difference.You could describe the German domestic demand increase as homeopathic, he joked. Like those pills that people take that don't really do anything. There are a few vibrations, it's not really having any impact.

UN method hangs in the balance as climate talks begin
ANDREW WILLIS Today NOV 29,10 @ 09:09 CET


EUOBSERVER / BRUSSELS - A year after climate talks in Copenhagen failed to secure a highly anticipated global deal to cut carbon emissions, key players say a further breakdown in fresh discussions this fortnight could spell the end of the UN multilateral negotiating process. Representatives from roughly 200 states will descend on the beachside city of Cancun, Mexico on Monday (29 November), for the start of a 12-day session expected to be every bit as difficult as last year's acrimonious event.If Cancun delivers nothing, or not much, then the UN process is in danger,the EU's climate commissioner, Connie Hedegaard, said last week. Such a move would represent a step backwards say environmental groups.Failure in Cancun could move talks to the G8 or G20 fora,Greenpeace climate activist Joris den Blanken told this website.But away from the UN process, the mechanisms to test the reduction of emissions are lost,he added.In a face-saving exercise last December, a smaller number of countries including the US and China brokered the Copenhagen Accord, agreeing to limit global warming to two degrees centigrade but failing to outline concrete steps to achieve this goal.Despite deep unhappiness with the deal, negotiated behind its back, the EU signed the accord that also sets out national promises to cut carbon emissions, but purely on a voluntary basis.

Since then, Washington's failure to secure Senate approval for a climate bill, coupled with Republican victory in the mid-term elections, could make it harder for President Barack Obama to follow through with his pledge to cut emissions by 17 percent over the next decade on 2005 levels.The EU needs to start building an alliance so it can break the current US-China dynamic,says Mr den Blanken. The US won't act without pressure.For its part, Brussels has increasingly talked of a step-wise approach to the multilateral talks, hoping to iron out a number of differences over the coming days in Cancun before a final deal can be concluded in South Africa next year.One area where the 27-member bloc hopes to see progress is in efforts to slow global deforestation. Another is agreement on a system to measure, report and verify (MRV) national emission cutting efforts that wealthy countries demand their poorer counterparts adhere to before committing to aid transfers.If there is no progress on MRV, I think that could be a reason for no deal at Cancun,one senior EU official said ahead of the talks.Developing countries are more reluctant however, seeing the issue as an assault on their sovereignty. Instead they are keen to secure technology transfer and money from the West to help them adapt to the effects of climate change, including fast-track funding for the 2010 to 2012 period, and further details on last year's promise to provide $100 billion in long-term aid and private-sector finance.Already there are disagreements over the public-private nature of this long-term money, although the go-ahead to create a Green Fund to raise the cash could be one of the tangible results to leave Cancun.Parallel talks on the Kyoto Protocol over the coming fortnight could provide a key to securing a broader deal, with developing states calling for richer Annex II countries to pledge more funds under a second commitment period (post 2012).

This is our big bargaining chip, said the EU official in an off-the-record briefing. We will only play it when we see action from the other side.Meanwhile, the Mexican sun will help remind those meeting in Cancun that 2010 is on target to becoming one of the warmest years on record.If the world fails to stop emissions from continuing to climb by 2020, the prospects for the people on the planet are pretty bleak,said British energy and climate change secretary Chris Huhne this month.

WikiLeaks:Documents Show Livni Doubted Fatah as Peace Partner
by Maayana Miskin NOV 29,10


Opposition leader MK Tzipi Livni has often criticized Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu for failing to reach a peace agreement with the Palestinian Authority. Now, leaked documents published on WikiLeaks have revealed that Livni herself expressed doubts over the PA's ability to make peace.Livni told Senators [John] Kerry and [Christopher] Dodd that she doubted that a final status agreement could be reached with Abu Mazen [Abbas], and therefore the emphasis should be on reforming Fatah so that it could beat Hamas at the polls, according to a cable sent by former U.S. envoy Richard Jones.Despite her doubts Livni took part in talks with the PA one year later, and since Netanyahu took office, has repeatedly criticized him for not convincing the PA to resume negotiations. PA Chairman Abbas has refused to talk to Netanyahu without a complete construction ban for Jews living east of the 1949 armistice line; no similar ultimatum was issued to Livni and former Prime Minister Ehud Olmert.Livni said Monday that the leaked documents don't say anything that I didn't already say in public. Her doubts were expressed in 2007, at a point when Hamas had recently become stronger, and therefore chances of an agreement were slim, she said.In 2008 we began the peace process in order to change the situation, and in 2010 I say again – a peace agreement is possible,Livni said.It was unclear from her statement what had led to her change of mind between 2007 and 2010. Hamas remains in control of Gaza as it was in 2007 and Fatah, the faction leading the PA, has yet to beat Hamas in elections.Polls conducted among PA Arabs show that neither Fatah head Mahmoud Abbas nor Gaza-based Hamas head Ismail Haniyeh is the most popular candidate for PA Chairman. In the lead was Marwan Barghouti, a senior Fatah terrorist who is serving five life sentences in Israel for his role in multiple murders.(Israel NationalNews.com)

Meged Field May Be a (Black) Gold Mine for Israel
by David Lev & Yoni Kempinski NOV 29,10

http://www.israelnationalnews.com/News/News.aspx/140899

There's gold in them thar hills – there seems to be black gold, that is, in the hills near the central Israeli town of Rosh Ha'ayin. For nearly two decades, an Israeli group called Givot Olam has been searching the area for oil, and in 2004, finally found commercially recoverable amounts of gas and oil. Since then, the company has further explored the Meged oil field – and on Monday, the company presented at a press conference the first independent geological assessment of the field, with the report claiming that there is anywhere between $200 million and nearly $900 million in oil buried in the field. And that, says Givot Olam chief geologist Tuvia Luskin, is a gift from Hashem.The estimate is the result of two reports by international geology firms Baker-Hughes and Greensand, discussing the amount of oil that they claim is definitely in the ground at the Meged field –the proven reserves (P1), and the potential reserves (P2). And according to the reports, former National Security Advisor Giora Eiland – who is Givot Olam's strategic advisor – there are between 2.2 million and 56 million barrels of oil in the field.

Eiland spoke a press conference given by the company Monday and introduced the reports from the two international firms. The lower estimate figure, according to the reports, are P1 reserves which could theoretically be extracted within months, while the latter number includes the firms' professional estimates as to the Meged field's full potential. Of that higher amount, there is at least a 50% chance to produce some 10 million barrels as well. The proven reserves are mostly in the Meged 5 oil well, while the P2 reserves of 10 million barrels are in several new wells that will have their drilling completed by 2012, Eiland said.These are conservative estimates,Eiland said at the press conference. The two firms are conservative in their outlook, as we are.However, he added, the excitement over the Meged find was genuine.The stock market and the media were all excited over news of possible finds of oil off Israel's coast, but here we have the first proven major reserves of oil in Israel,he said.Luskin told Israel National News that the find was a milestone for the company, and for the whole country. This is the first time that internationally recognized firms have given an estimate for the amount of oil in the Meged field, or for any field in Israel. The figures they provided represent P1 and P2 reserves, which is very exciting – no other oil project in Israel has ever received this recognition. We started exploring in 1992, and after many ups and downs, we are happy to have arrived at this day. It is by the grace of G-d that we have succeeded, he said.This is a blessed event.(IsraelNationalNews.com)

11 Get you out of the way, turn aside out of the path, cause the Holy One of Israel to cease from before us.
12 Wherefore thus saith the Holy One of Israel, Because ye despise this word, and trust in oppression and perverseness, and stay thereon:
13 Therefore this iniquity shall be to you as a breach ready to fall, swelling out in a high wall, whose breaking cometh suddenly at an instant.
14 And he shall break it as the breaking of the potters’ vessel that is broken in pieces; he shall not spare: so that there shall not be found in the bursting of it a sherd to take fire from the hearth, or to take water withal out of the pit.
15 For thus saith the Lord GOD, the Holy One of Israel; In returning and rest shall ye be saved; in quietness and in confidence shall be your strength: and ye would not.

3 And many people shall go and say, Come ye, and let us go up to the mountain of the LORD, to the house of the God of Jacob; and he will teach us of his ways, and we will walk in his paths: for out of Zion shall go forth the law, and the word of the LORD from Jerusalem.
4 And he shall judge among the nations, and shall rebuke many people: and they shall beat their swords into plowshares, and their spears into pruninghooks: nation shall not lift up sword against nation, neither shall they learn war any more.
5 O house of Jacob, come ye, and let us walk in the light of the LORD.

9 And they that went before, and they that followed, cried, saying, Hosanna; Blessed is he that cometh in the name of the Lord:
10 Blessed be the kingdom of our father David, that cometh in the name of the Lord: Hosanna in the highest.
15 And they come to Jerusalem: and Jesus went into the temple, and began to cast out them that sold and bought in the temple, and overthrew the tables of the moneychangers, and the seats of them that sold doves;
16 And would not suffer that any man should carry any vessel through the temple.
17 And he taught, saying unto them, Is it not written, My house shall be called of all nations the house of prayer? but ye have made it a den of thieves.

Thousands Beseech G-d for Rain at Kotel
by Gil Ronen NOV 29,10

http://www.israelnationalnews.com/News/News.aspx/140908 (PICTURES)

Thousands gathered at the Kotel Plaza Monday to pray for rainfall, as Israel experiences the driest November in almost 50 years. Rain is not expected until mid-December.The Kotel is part of the ancient external wall built by Jewish kings around the Temple Mount, where the Temple once stood, and which has been under Muslim Arab occupation for centuries. Observant Jews pray to rebuild the Temple at the earliest opportunity.Judaism teaches that the Land of Israel was given by G-d to the Jews and that it will receive annual rains on time and be plentiful if the Jews observe G-d's commandments.This message is contained, among other places, in the Shma Yisrael prayer that observant Jews recite at least twice a day, and which is one of the most basic prayers in Judaism. It contains a Divine promise that rain will come on time if the Nation of Israel does its part. The verses are taken from the Book of Deuteronomy: If then you obey my commandments, which I command you this day, that you love the Lord your G-d, and serve him with all your heart, and with all your soul: He will give to your land the early rain and the latter rain, that you may gather in your corn, and your wine, and your oil, and your hay out of the fields to feed your cattle, and that you may eat and be filled.Pictures by Yehuda Boltshauser / Kuvien Images:Chief Sephardic Rabbi, Rabbi Shlomo Amar,Chief Ashkenazi Rabbi, Rabbi Yonah Metzger.(IsraelNationalNews.com)

Knesset Probes Poor Response to Flu Shot Campaign
by Chana Ya'ar NOV 29,10


Deputy Health Minister Yaakov Litzman rolled up his sleeve for the cameras to set a personal example Monday as he publicly received a flu vaccination.The minister got his annual flu shot as the Knesset Committee on Children's Rights held a hearing to find out why more than 90 percent of Israel's children have not done the same.Some three weeks ago, the Health Ministry warned the public of the risk of contagion, complications and even possible deaths that could result from the low rate of immunizations, especially among the high-risk population that includes children ages five and under.United Torah Judaism Knesset Member Uri Maklev, who asked for the urgent hearing, noted that on one hand, much of the public does not realize how safe the vaccination is. Moreover, he said, many people do not have faith in the system.

On the other hand, he said, those who are interested in receiving a vaccination may not be aware of how easy it is to get one.Maklev called on the ministry to make an effort to increase this awareness among the public and encourage citizens to be immunized. The MK suggested that an example could be set by the ministry workers themselves: despite the fact that flu shots are mandated for Health Ministry workers, Maklev noted that most do not comply with the rule.(IsraelNationalNews.com)

US escapes major hurricanes for 5th straight year By MATT SEDENSKY, Associated Press – Mon Nov 29, 4:32 pm ET

MIAMI – The Atlantic hurricane season ends Tuesday, going down as one of the busiest on record but blissfully sparing the U.S. coastline a major hurricane for a fifth straight year.While extreme tropical weather ravaged Haiti, Mexico and elsewhere, U.S. forecasters are wondering if the nation can make history and extend its luck into 2011. If so, it would be the first time ever that the U.S. escaped a major hurricane for six years.That would be a record I would like to break, said Dennis Feltgen, a spokesman for the National Hurricane Center in Miami.All told, 19 named storms formed in the Atlantic, tying with the 1887 and 1995 seasons for third-highest on record. Twelve became hurricanes, tying with the 1969 season for the second-highest on record.

In the U.S., Texas suffered the worst of the tropical weather.Flooding spurred by Tropical Storm Hermine was blamed for the deaths of at least seven people in Texas. Hurricane Alex damaged or destroyed more than 300 homes in Texas and caused an estimated $42 million in damage to infrastructure.Aside from that, Tropical Storm Bonnie sent crews working to stop the flow of oil from a blown-out rig in the Gulf of Mexico into a fury. And Hurricane Earl brought flooding to North Carolina's Outer Banks and some rain to Cape Cod, but little damage.Fortunately most storms avoided the U.S., said Jack Hayes, director of the National Weather Service. You could say the season was a gentle giant.

Not so elsewhere, though.

Hurricane Tomas killed 14 people in St. Lucia and at least eight in Haiti. Hurricane Alex caused flooding that killed 12 people in Mexico. Hurricane Igor knocked out power to half of Bermuda but spared the country major damage or injuries.A persistent low-pressure system through the height of hurricane season is credited with the U.S. escaping major harm. The western edge of the high-pressure system that drove tropical weather from the coast of Africa was eroded by the low pressure, and ultimately helped propel it away from the U.S. shore.That's not an unusual pattern at all,Feltgen said, and we're fortunate that it was in place at the height of the season.The last major hurricane of Category 3 or stronger to hit the U.S. was Wilma in 2005.Online:National Hurricane Center: http://www.nhc.noaa.gov/

Signs of diplomacy in NKorea crisis By KELLY OLSEN and HYUNG-JIN KIM, Associated Press - NOV 29,10

OSAN AIR BASE, South Korea – As U.S.-South Korean war games continued, the United States and two crucial Asian allies agreed to meet in Washington for talks on North Korea's attack of a South Korean island and the North's nuclear weapons programs.
Although North Korean rhetoric remained high — the country warned the military drills could trigger full-blown war — a senior North Korean official left Pyongyang for talks with leaders in the country's only major ally, China.The visit of Choe Thae Bok, the chairman of North Korea's parliament, to Beijing, combined with the planned Washington meeting, raised hopes that a diplomatic solution could be found.

Even as Choe traveled to Beijing, however, the North reminded the world that it was forging ahead with its nuclear efforts. Pyongyang said Tuesday that it's operating a modern uranium enrichment plant equipped with thousands of centrifuges. The main Rodong Sinmun newspaper said in a commentary that the North is also building light-water reactors. The commentary, carried by the official Korean Central News Agency, said the uranium enrichment is entirely intended for peaceful purposes.The North first revealed the program in early November to a visiting American scientist. A light-water nuclear power reactor is ostensibly for civilian energy purposes, but it gives the North a reason to enrich uranium. Uranium enrichment would give the North a second way to make nuclear bombs, in addition to its known plutonium-based program. At low levels, uranium can be used in power reactors, but at higher levels it can be used in nuclear weapons.North Korea, which has pushed for renewed international talks on receiving much-needed aid in return for commitments to dismantle its nuclear programs, unleashed an artillery barrage on a South Korean island Nov. 23 that killed two civilians and two marines. The attack hit civilian areas and marked a new level of hostility along the country's contested maritime border.

South Korean President Lee Myung-bak took responsibility Monday for failing to protect his citizens and pledged a tough response if the North carries out any further aggression.Foreign ministers from South Korea, the United States and Japan are to meet in Washington in early December to discuss the shelling and North Korea's nuclear program, according to Seoul's Foreign Ministry.Despite the diplomacy, tension in the region remained high.On Tuesday, the North's propaganda machine issued a warning that the South Korea-U.S. drills could trigger a full-blown war on the peninsula.Our republic has a war deterrent that can annihilate any aggressor at once, the Pyongyang's government-run Minju Joson said in a commentary. A northward provocative war means a self-destruction.On the streets of Pyongyang, North Koreans spoke with pride of their military.Those who like fire are bound to be punished with fire, Kim Yong Jun, a Pyongyang resident, told international broadcaster APTN. If the U.S. imperialists and South Korean puppets continue to gather the clouds of war, the Korean army and people will never forgive them.The U.S. ambassador to the United Nations, Susan Rice, said Monday that the U.N. Security Council is studying how to respond to the shelling as well as the recent uranium revelations.Yonhap news agency reported that Choe, the North Korean official, will stay in China for five days and was invited by Wu Bangguo, chairman of the rubber-stamp National People's Congress.Choe, who concurrently serves as a ruling Workers' Party secretary, was expected to meet top Chinese communist party officials and discuss last week's artillery barrage, the North's nuclear program and the U.S.-South Korean military drills, Yonhap said.Choe visited China in late September and briefed President Hu Jintao and other Chinese leaders about the North's decision to give top political posts to a son of North Korean leader Kim Jong Il, Yonhap said.China, North Korea's only major ally, has sought to calm tensions by calling for an emergency meeting among regional powers involved in nuclear disarmament talks, including North Korea. Seoul, which wants proof of Pyongyang's commitment to denuclearization as well as a show of regret over the March sinking of a warship, reacted coolly to the proposal.Japan rejected a new round of aid-for-disarmament talks any time soon. Foreign Ministry Seiji Maehara said in an interview with national broadcaster TBS late Monday that North Korea must first honor past commitments on disarmament.Kim reported from Seoul.

Australian PM to price carbon pollution next year By ROD McGUIRK, Associated Press – Sun Nov 28, 5:08 pm ET

CANBERRA, Australia – Prime Minister Julia Gillard said on Monday her government would decide next year how to charge Australia's major polluters for the carbon gases that they emit in a bid to curb the nation's greenhouse gas emissions.
Gillard's plan to fast-track Australia's introduction of financial penalties for polluters came hours ahead of a United Nations climate change summit in Mexico starting on Monday that will consider how the Kyoto Protocol on reducing greenhouse gas emissions will be replaced after 2012.Australia and the United States had been the only industrialized countries to refuse to accept their Kyoto targets on reducing their carbon emissions until Gillard's center-left Labor Party was elected to govern in 2007.The new Labor government under then-Prime Minister Kevin Rudd immediately signed up to Australia's reduction target, but Rudd this year shelved until 2013 his plan to make polluters pay for permits to emit carbon gases.Gillard, who replaced Rudd in an internal Labor coup in June before the party was returned at August elections to govern for another three years, said she was confident that her government would decide next year how to make polluters pay after a committee of lawmakers and experts reports on the best strategy to do so.2011 is the year Australia decides on carbon pricing, Gillard told an economics think tank.

Labor's previous attempts to make polluters pay have been thwarted in the upper house, the Senate, where the government does not hold a majority. The conservative opposition argues that families would pay the cost of pollution and has promised to never charge polluters.Australia is one of world's worst carbon polluters per capita because of its heavy reliance on abundant coal reserves for power generation.Climate Change Minister Greg Combet has downplayed the prospect of a global agreement being reached at the U.N. summit at Cancun.Beginning Monday, 15,000 government delegates, environmentalists, business leaders, journalists and others will gather in the meeting halls of a Caribbean resort in Cancun for the annual conference of the 193-nation U.N. climate treaty.Australia's climate change ambassador Louise Hand will lead the 35-strong Australian delegation before Combet heads to Mexico in the second week of the summit to take over.

Stalled on treaty, climate talks turn to money By CHARLES J. HANLEY, AP Special Correspondent – Sun Nov 28, 7:06 pm ET

CANCUN, Mexico – Facing another year without a global deal to curb climate change, the world's nations will spend the next two weeks debating how to mobilize money to cope with what's coming — as temperatures climb, ice melts, seas rise and the climate that nurtured man shifts in unpredictable ways.Beginning Monday, 15,000 government delegates, environmentalists, business leaders, journalists and others will gather in the meeting halls of this steamy Caribbean resort for the annual conference of the 193-nation U.N. climate treaty.They meet late in a year that may end tied for the hottest globally in 131 years of record-keeping.As the world warms, the long-running U.N. negotiations have bogged down, unable to find consensus on a legally binding agreement requiring richer countries — and perhaps some poorer — to rein in emissions of carbon dioxide and other industrial, transportation and agricultural gases blamed for global warming.The Republican takeover of the U.S. House of Representatives and a recent historic shift in emissions — developing countries now produce more greenhouse gases than the old industrial world — all but guarantee the standoff will drag on, at least for another year or two.The world is waiting for fruitful negotiations, Mexico's environment secretary, Juan Rafael Elvira Quesada, told The Associated Press.U.N. officials hope for incremental progress on side issues, not an overarching deal, in two weeks of negotiation ending with three days of high-level bargaining among the world's environment ministers.

Governments need to prove the intergovernmental process can deliver and come to an agreement, U.N. climate chief Christiana Figueres told reporters outside the beachside Moon Palace Hotel.Mexican naval vessels offshore joined a giant security cordon ringing this sprawling resort area in a country plagued by drug wars, kidnappings and other crime.Hoping to revive momentum in the talks, delegates look for decisions leading to better terms for developing nations to obtain patented green technology from advanced countries, and toward a system for compensating poorer nations for protecting their forests.In particular, the developing world wants a significant deal on finance, a decision to establish a green fund to handle billions in aid dollars pledged by developed nations to help poorer countries adapt to a changing climate by, for example, building shoreline protection and upgrading water systems to deal with drought, and to install clean energy sources.In a nonbinding Copenhagen Accord reached by world leaders at last year's climate summit in the Danish capital, richer nations set a goal of $100 billion annually in such climate finance by 2020.The fund's operational and leadership details would likely be left for post-Cancun negotiation, as would the key question of how it would be financed. A U.N. panel of international political and financial leaders has presented a menu of revenue-raising options, including levies on international flights and on foreign-exchange transactions.

More immediately, less-developed nations will raise concerns about short-term aid, fast-start finance promised in the Copenhagen Accord.There's been too little for small island developing states. It's a trickle, said Grenada's U.N. ambassador, Dessima Williams, chair of an alliance of island states.At Copenhagen, industrial nations as a group pledged $30 billion in quick financing over 2010-2012. Independent analysts find that governments individually since have promised $28 billion for the three years.Poorer nations complain much of the money may not be new, but funds simply reshuffled from other development programs. At Cancun, they're expected to demand a clearer accounting of fast-start finance.That would build confidence in the overall funding process, Robert Orr, a U.N. assistant secretary-general, told reporters in New York. We need new and additional money to address the problem, not repackaged money.On the flip side, the developed north will seek a better accounting from China, India and other emerging economies of the south on what they're doing to slow the galloping growth of their greenhouse gas emissions.

Nations north and south pledged under the 2009 accord to voluntarily lower emissions by specific amounts or, in the case of emerging economies, to slow emissions growth. Developing countries also agreed to some international scrutiny of the steps they take, but the U.S. complains China has backtracked on that. At Cancun, India will submit a compromise monitoring plan it hopes will help satisfy the north on the south's emissions actions, while the south obtains a better accounting on climate finance. Monitoring is the crux of all issues at Cancun,India's environment minister, Jairam Ramesh, told the AP in New Delhi. The Copenhagen emissions pledges, even if all were met, would take the world only 60 percent of the way toward preventing serious climate change, the U.N. Environment Program reported last week.

Scientists say emissions overall should be cut 25-40 percent below 1990 levels by 2020 to prevent a dangerous temperature rise of more than 2 degrees Celsius (3.6 degrees F) above preindustrial levels. Temperatures already rose 0.7 degrees C (1.3 degrees F) in the 20th century.The Copenhagen pledges would together reduce emissions by only 18 percent, independent analysis shows. In the U.S. case, emissions would be cut by only 3 percent below 1990 levels.For 13 years the U.S. has refused to join the rest of the industrialized world in the U.N. climate treaty's Kyoto Protocol, a binding pact to curb fossil-fuel emissions by modest amounts. The rise of Republicans in Washington, many of whom dismiss powerful scientific evidence of global warming, seems to rule out for now U.S. legislation to cap emissions, essential for drawing others into a binding global deal to succeed Kyoto, expiring in 2012.American negotiators say Washington will never submit to a new Kyoto-style deal on emissions unless China, India and others take on commitments under a legally binding treaty. The Chinese and Indians counter that they're still too poor to risk stifling economic growth, and the historic responsibility for industrial emissions lies with the north.The Obama administration, meanwhile, seeks limited emissions reductions via executive action. But the rest of the world, from Europe to island states facing rising seas, is skeptical of the American will to take demanding long-term action. As the debates drag on, heat-trapping carbon dioxide fills more of the atmosphere. From 280 parts per million before the Industrial Revolution, the concentration stood at 386.8 ppm in 2009.If too little is done, temperatures this century may rise by up to 6.4 degrees C (11.5 degrees F), leading to severe climate disruption, say scientists of the U.N.-sponsored Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change.

The disruption may already have begun.

Researchers point to this summer's historic heat wave in Russia and nationwide floods in Pakistan as portents of things to come. In the Arctic Ocean, the summer melt of the ice cap has reached unprecedented proportions in recent years, and studies suggest the summer ocean may be ice-free as early as this decade.Here in Mexico, research points to a drying out and shrinking of farm output in some regions, which might lead to a greater exodus of Mexican migrants to the U.S. Associated Press writer Katy Daigle in New Delhi contributed to this report.

NOW THIS IS BIG NEWS-DETENTION CENTERS OUT IN OPEN TALK.THE BIBLE SAYS GOD DEALS WITH ISRAEL 1ST,THEN THE WORLD.SO THESE DETENTION CAMPS WILL BE WORLDWIDE HAPPENINGS AS GOD IS REVEALING THE FUTURE THREW NETANYAHU AND ISRAEL.

Israel approves detention center for migrants By Amy Teibel, Associated Press – Sun Nov 28, 11:31 am ET

JERUSALEM – Israel's Cabinet voted Sunday to erect a massive detention facility to hold thousands of Africans who have slipped illegally through the porous southern border with Egypt, heating up a debate over how to handle their mounting numbers.
Critics accuse Israel of trying to turn away bona fide refugees and predicted the facility, which will be designed to hold up to 10,000 detainees, would become a squalid refugee camp. The Cabinet minister in charge of prisons said correctional authorities were ill-equipped to run the facility.But other officials said authorities cannot let thousands of economic migrants enter illegally each year, take jobs from Israelis and dilute the country's Jewish character.Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu told his Cabinet before the vote that the proposed center is part of a multi-pronged approach that will include construction of a barrier along thinly patrolled areas of the 130-mile (220-kilometer) Israeli-Egyptian border, which began last week, and heavy fines on people who employ illegal workers. The barrier is also designed to keep out militants.We have to stop this growing influx that threatens Israelis' jobs and changes the character of the state,said Netanyahu, who later visited the border area where the fence is being constructed.Refugees would not be turned away. And the center, where the migrants would be housed, fed and receive medical care, would be a humanitarian solution for dealing with them until they are repatriated or sent to a third country, he said. The facility is to be completed in six months.This is really a national mission. The influx of labor immigrants threatens the social fabric of the entire country, said Defense Minister Ehud Barak, during a tour of the border fence area.

According to government estimates, about 13,000 Africans will illegally enter Israel this year, joining more than 20,000 others who came between 2006 and 2009.Without government intervention, the number could reach 30,000 a year by 2015, Cabinet secretary Tzvi Hauser told Israel Radio on Sunday. In addition to the African migrants, there are about 120,000 foreign workers with expired visas now in Israel, working illegally, the government and activists say.Most migrants come from Eritrea, Sudan and other impoverished and conflict-ridden African countries. Human rights workers say the Africans appear to be racing to cross the border before Israel completes the border fence.Officials say most migrants come looking for work and have become absorbed into the country's sizable illegal work force. They often earn extremely low wages and live in abominable conditions.But human rights workers say most are not economic migrants. Sigal Rozen of the Hotline for Migrant Workers accused officials of not reviewing applications for political asylum.Rozen's group and The Association for Civil Rights in Israel sent Netanyahu a letter last week calling the proposed center a refugee camp, nothing more than a ghetto.Interior Ministry spokeswoman Sabine Haddad said with its limited staff power, the ministry first reviews applications of migrants from China, Thailand and other countries who came to Israel to work and therefore can be deported. It does not review the applications of immigrants from Eritrea and Sudan because Israel will not repatriate them at this time because of conditions there, even though they don't qualify as refugees, Haddad said.Plans to expel migrants have rankled some Israelis, who don't want their country — founded in part as a sanctuary for Holocaust survivors — to turn away people from repressive, war-torn states.Thousands of migrants have paid Egyptian smugglers, who reportedly demand as much as $10,000 to sneak them across the desert frontier. Hauser told Israel Radio that Israel does not have an agreement with Egypt to turn all the illegals back into Egypt's Sinai peninsula, which borders Gaza.

Over the weekend, the Israel branch of Physicians for Human Rights accused Bedouin traffickers in Sinai of routinely raping migrants, subjecting them to electric shocks, burning them with iron bars and locking some in sweltering containers without food or water until they die. They based the allegations on a significant number of accounts of abused migrants treated in Israel.The stream of migrants began as a trickle in 2005, after Egypt quashed a demonstration by a group of Sudanese refugees. Hundreds entered and as stories of their new lives spread, more came.
Since a request by Israel to tighten border controls, Egyptian forces have shot and killed dozens of African trying to cross the border.

Frustrated with EU pressure tactics, Africa ready to walk away from trade talks LEIGH PHILLIPS 26.11.2010 @ 17:44 CET

EUOBSERVER / BRUSSELS - African states are ready to abandon ten years of trade talks with the EU as their patience has worn thin in response to what they call pressure tactics on the part of the European Commission.In a pair of papers seen by EUobserver using language as blistering as diplomatic phrasing gets, African trade chiefs call on Brussels to step up and take the same supportive attitude towards development behind closed doors in trade talks as in their public pronouncements.The divergences between the EU and Africa seem to be intractable and not resolvable, despite ten years of negotiations, reads one of the papers.Raising the stakes ahead of an EU-Africa summit in Tripoli, Libya beginning on Monday, the nations say that if Europe does not abandon its demands that the continent radically liberalise its economies immediately, Africa says it is ready to walk away from the process.The position paper and political declaration from trade ministers - for the first time involving all five African regional economic communities active in negotiations over Economic Partnership Agreements and the African Union Commission together - are a catalogue of complaints.There is great concern within Africa about the way the EPA negotiations have been conducted and about the outcome of the negotiations so far, reads the paper.

The critical issues that will allow Africa to move forward on the path to industrialization and sustainable economic growth and development have still not yet been addressed.The document argues that their is a gap between Brussels's rhetoric and its negotiating posture.Despite the encouraging statements emanating from the EU which acknowledge the difference in the levels of development of the negotiating parties and the need to show adequate special and differential treatment for Africa, the necessary flexibility in the negotiating position of the EC on many critical issues has not been forthcoming.Greater political will on the part of the EU is needed to move the EPA process forward.The paper argues that the impasse in negotiations in not due to a lack of policy reforms or market opening on the part of African countries, but that Europe continues to push a liberalising model that is inappropriate for states at their level of development.Lessons to be learnt from the global financial and economic crisis highlight the need for increased regulation of the market, rather than policy reforms that put more emphasis on the removal of regulation. Africa needs policy space to diversify its economy, achieve competiveness and attain sustainable economic growth and development.Failure of the part of the EU to grant the flexibilities will pose serious risks to Africa's future development.The states are opposed to EU demands that tariffs on a full 80 percent of their imports be eliminated. The depth of such liberalisation would leave much of the continent's fragile and small industry vulnerable without the umbrella of tariff protection - the same tariff protection, they say, that rich countries historically used themselves to build up their own industry - and lead to deindustrialisation.The nations want to improve infrastructure and institutional and production capacities before opening up their markets.They also say it is unfair to threaten to withdraw access to their EU markets unless agreements are signed.

Ahmadou Abdoulaye Diallo, Mali's trade and industry minister, said of the stalemate: To end the impasse in the current talks, Mali suggests that a number of measurable and objective criteria be met before African countries can conclude the negotiations.
For him, this includes realisation of the Millennium Development Goals, sufficient levels of development within industry and agriculture, a diversification of exports and robust intra-African trade, meaning a development of strong domestic demand rather than just an export-orientation to wealthy countries. If these indicators are not met before concluding the EPAs, the entire process would be highly dysfunctional.
Earlier this month, EU trade commissioner Karel de Gucht admitted that relations between the two sides were souring.It is true that [these talks] can be souring the relations between Europe and Africa, he told Reuters.However, he also hinted that Europe is ready to shift on some of its demands and the timescale involved.On services we can be flexible. I think also on rules we can have a progressive approach,he added.

DANIEL 7:23-24
23 Thus he said, The fourth beast(THE EU,REVIVED ROME) shall be the fourth kingdom upon earth,(7TH WORLD EMPIRE) which shall be diverse from all kingdoms, and shall devour the whole earth, and shall tread it down, and break it in pieces.(TRADE BLOCKS)
24 And the ten horns out of this kingdom are ten kings that shall arise:(10 NATIONS) and another shall rise after them;(#11 SPAIN) and he shall be diverse from the first, and he shall subdue three kings.(BE HEAD OF 3 KINGS OR NATIONS).

Putin proposes Russia-EU union
VALENTINA POP 26.11.2010 @ 09:29 CET


Ahead of his two-day visit to Germany, Russian Prime Minister Vladimir Putin has projected a vision of a harmonious economic community stretching from Lisbon to Vladivostok in reaction to the economic crisis. Chancellor Angela Merkel, however, said she will pour some cold water on the idea.Writing in German daily Sueddeutsche Zeitung on Thursday (25 November), Mr Putin argued that more integration between Russia and the EU and even a common contintental market would allow them to overcome the effects of the crisis and prevent a new one from emerging.We should be frank about it: The global economic crisis has revealed both Russia and the EU to be economically very vulnerable, Mr Putin wrote. Russia is still too dependent on its oil and gas exports, he argued, while the EU has lost its competitive edge in the world through its de-industrialisation policy. A harmonious economic community stretching from Lisbon to Vladivostok would imply strategic alliances in key industries, such as shipbuilding, car manufacturing, space exploration and the pharmaceutical industry.In my view, we need to address the question as to how we can trigger a new wave of industrialisation across the European continent, he wrote.

In the field of oil and gas, Russia's main exports to the EU, Mr Putin argued that the co-operation needs to be de-politicised and have European and Russian firms working together from exploration and exploitation of energy resources all the way to the delivery to consumers.Politicisation of Russia's energy exports has however so far been the trademark of Mr Putin's leadership, first as president and now as premier of his country. The former KGB officer famously wrote his PhD on how a state should make best use of its natural resources, although the paper was later on proved to have partly plagiarised US academics. He has been constantly criticised for sanctioning pro-democratic changes in countries such as Georgia and Ukraine with pricing disputes and even cut offs, while awarding more favourable regimes with lucrative gas deals.In one such incident, back in January 2009, EU member states Bulgaria and Slovakia were left in the cold after Gazprom turned the tap off to Ukraine, then led by the Orange Revolution leader Viktor Yushchenko. A more Russia-friendly regime change in Kiev has since sealed a 20-year gas deal at favourable prices in return for an extension of Russia's naval presence in a Ukrainian port.

Speaking at a press conference in Berlin on Thursday, German Chancellor Angela Merkel said she had to pour some cold water on the ideas floated by Mr Putin. Of course we support the idea of a free trade zone between the EU and Russia but I have to pour a bit of cold water on it,she said. The steps that Russia has taken recently do not point in that direction,Ms Merkel added, in reference to plans championed by Mr Putin on withdrawing Russia's bid to join the World Trade Organisation and establish a customs union with Kazakhstan and Belarus instead.The customs union came into force in July, but later on, Russian President Dmitry Medvedev said it is not really working and has re-energised the WTO bid.On Wednesday in Brussels, for instance, Russian negotiators agreed to phase out its tarriffs on raw materials such as timber, thus allowing the EU to lift its objections to the WTO bid. The move followed a similar endorsement from Washington, in September this year.

Secular Farmers to Join Mass Prayers for Rain at Kotel Monday
by Gil Ronen NOV 28,10


Israel's Chief Ashkenazi Rabbi, Rabbi Yonah Metzger, and his Sephardic counterpart, Rabbi Shlomo Amar, declared Monday a day of fasting and prayer for rain, as the drought continues in Israel.Meteorologists do not expect any rain this week either. The situation is so bad that even secular farmers from kibbutzim – Israel's socialist agricultural cooperatives – are expected to join the prayer session in Jerusalem.A central prayer session for rain will be held at the Kotel Plaza in Jerusalem at 3:30 PM, presided over by the two Chief Rabbis. At the same time, prayers will be held in synagogues throughout Israel.The Head of the Regional Council Center, Shmulik Rifman, a member of secular-socialist kibbutz Revivim, called upon residents of all regional authorities to take part in the prayers and ask for rain. In Judea and Samaria, special headquarters have been set up to help make transport arrangements for bringing as many as people as possible to the Kotel.

The head of the religious Amit educational network, Dr. Amnon Eldar, announced that prayers for rain would be held in all of Amit's 85 schools nationwide, and called on schools to try and bring the pupils to the Kotel.World Bnei Akiva also joined the Chief Rabbis' initiative and promised that Bnei Akiva emissaries worldwide would arrange prayers for rainfall in Israel. Bnei Akiva Director Ze'ev Schwartz said that Jewish communities worldwide are following the drought situation in Israel with great concern. The sense of mutual responsibility is motivating our emissaries worldwide to join the prayer day and ask for the good of the Land of Israel from every place upon the earth.(IsraelNationalNews.com)

Iran obtained missiles from N.Korea: US cables
NOV 28,10


WASHINGTON (AFP) – US intelligence believes Iran has obtained advanced missiles from North Korea capable of striking Europe, according to US documents leaked by WikiLeaks and cited by the New York Times.The newspaper, in a diplomatic cable dated February 24, said secret American intelligence assessments have concluded that Iran has obtained a cache of advanced missiles, based on a Russian design.Iran obtained 19 of the North Korean missiles, an improved version of Russia's R-27, from North Korea, the cable said, and was taking pains to master the technology in an attempt to build a new generation of missiles.At the request of US President Barack Obama's administration, the New York Times said it had agreed not to publish the text of that cable.The North Korean version of the advanced missile, known as the BM-25, could carry a nuclear warhead, said the newspaper, adding it had a range of up to 2,000 miles (more than 3,000 kilometres).If fired from Iran, that range, in theory, would let its warheads reach targets as far away as Western Europe, including Berlin. If fired northwestward, the warheads could reach Moscow, it said, referring to other dispatches.The cables say that Iran not only obtained the BM-25, but also saw the advanced technology as a way to learn how to design and build a new class of more powerful engines, said the Times.The leaked documents also showed that Washington demanded China block shipments of the missile parts from North Korea to Iran.The British newspaper The Guardian, citing a diplomatic cable from 2007, said the United States gave China specific details about a shipment that was expected to transit Beijing.We... insist on a substantive response from China to this information, said the document published on the Guardian website, marked secret and sent by the State Department.According to the cable, diplomats were instructed to make the request at the most effective level possible, and express wider concerns at the highest level possible.The US believes that the proliferation of missile technology between North Korea and Iran will increase and that these two countries will attempt to conduct these transfers through Chinese territory, the document read.
It listed 11 alleged deliveries of missile-related jet vanes from North Korea to Iran, saying: It appears that these shipments did occur and are continuing to transit via Beijing.

Erdogan Blasts Israel in Mideast Tour, Plans Gaza Visit
by Maayana Miskin NOV 28,10


Senior Hamas member Said Shaat has told international media that Hamas-run Gaza is expecting visits in 2011 from several international leaders, including Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez and Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan.Erdogan has been harshly critical of Israel since taking office, and Israel-Turkey ties, once warm, are now virtually non-existent.During a visit to Lebanon last week Erdogan blasted Israel and accused the IDF of a massacre of children in Gaza. He also accused Israel of piracy and state terror over the deaths of nine pro-terror Turkish activists killed in a clash with IDF soldiers.The activists, members of the IHH, were attempting to break the IDF's naval blockade on Hamas. They were not bearing aid. When IDF commandos attempted to turn their ship aside, they attacked the soldiers with knives and guns, seriously wounding them. Soldiers opened fire in defense and killed nine.You bloodthirstily slaughter my nine innocent citizens who were taking food to babies and then you expect us to keep silent. We will not keep silent, Erdogan said in Lebanon, addressing Israel. Lebanese Prime Minister Saad Hariri was present for his speech.Erdogan's new, hostile approach to Israel has won him fans throughout the Arab world. During his trip to Lebanon, he was given a leadership award from the Union of Arab Banks. He will soon travel to Libya, where Libyan leader Muammar Qaddafi plans to give him the Distinguished Statesman award.

Erdogan is currently leading an international online poll to choose Time Magazine's Person of the Year. The magazine noted that Erdogan has accused Israel of inhumane state terrorism and stated that under Erdogan Turkey displayed a newfound willingness to flex its diplomatic muscle.(IsraelNationalNews.com)

Ultra-Left Cites Stolen IDF Docs in Motion Against Yair Naveh
by Gil Ronen NOV 28,10


Several prominent ultra-leftists petitioned the High Court Sunday against the appointment of Major General Yair Naveh as IDF Deputy Chief of Staff. Naveh entered the new position three days ago.The petitioners include former minister and founder of Meretz Shulamit Aloni, veteran leftist journalist-activist Uri Avneri, poet Natan Zach and Musi Raz, Director of Peace Now. They claim that Naveh was responsible for targeted killings of terrorists in contravention of High Court rulings and of international law.Internal IDF inquiries showed that Naveh was involved in targeted killings of wanted Arab terrorists who could have been arrested instead of being killed, the ultra-leftists claimed. The killings caused casualties among innocent bystanders who were present near the terrorists, they said.Defense Minister Ehud Barak's decision to appoint Naveh as Deputy Chief of Staff is extremely unreasonable from a legal standpoint, and is wrong morally as well.The High Court motion is based upon documents that were stolen from Naveh's bureau by then-soldier Anat Kam, and published by Haaretz journalist Uri Blau. Kam is standing trial for the theft.A black flag waves over the appointment, that says it is forbidden, forbidden, forbidden to appoint such a man to the position,Raz said.Peace Now is a group that wants Israel to shrink to the pre-1967 shape that former Foreign Minister Abba Eban named the Auschwitz Borders.The IDF adopted targeted killings of terrorists as one of the methods of dealing with the unprecedented terror offensive unleashed by Palestinian Authority terror groups in 2000. They are generally seen as effective in deterring terrorists by causing their leaders to live in cosntant fear of an unexpected death.Nationalists have also been firecely opposed to Naveh in the past, because of his role in the 2005 Disengagement. His appointment is the most prominent IDF position ever occupied by a religious person.(IsraelNationalNews.com)

Blair: Israel must do more to ease Gaza blockade By KARIN LAUB, Associated Press - NOV 28,10

RAMALLAH, West Bank – Israel needs to do more to ease its blockade of Gaza and allow exports from the Hamas-ruled territory, international Mideast envoy Tony Blair said in an interview Sunday, after meeting with the Israeli prime minister.The former British prime minister told the Associated Press that he hopes to see progress soon, noting that exports are crucial for reviving Gaza's battered economy. There has been significant change in Gaza, but not nearly as much as we need, he said.Israel and Egypt sealed Gaza's borders after the violent takeover of the territory by the Islamic militant Hamas in 2007, allowing in only basic humanitarian goods.In June, in an attempt to defuse international criticism over its deadly raid of a Gaza-bound flotilla, Israel eased the embargo. It now allows in most consumer goods, but has continued to restrict the import of most construction supplies and key raw materials, and banned virtually all exports.Israel argues that Hamas could use cement and steel for military purposes, and that the infrastructure isn't in place yet at Gaza's single crossing for trade with Israel, Kerem Shalom, to safely monitor exports.However, Gaza economists and human rights groups argue that the initial easing of the blockade has not sparked sustained growth. Gaza unemployment remains above 30 percent. Both the construction industry and exports of Gaza-made textiles, furniture and agricultural projects are pillars of the Gaza economy.Blair, who was instrumental in negotiating the easing of the closure in June, said he raised the issue with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on Sunday.I hope that in a short space of time, we will get some progress there, because a functioning private sector in Gaza is important, he said. It is important for the economy of Gaza, but it is also important for the people there.Blair said Gazans, most of whom receive some aid, don't want handouts. They want to run their own affairs properly,he said.

Maj. Gen. Eitan Dangot, the Israeli general who controls access to Gaza, told AP last month that he eventually hopes to permit exports, but wants to prevent Hamas from getting credit for any progress. His spokesman, Maj. Guy Inbar, said Sunday the plan is to start allowing exports, in a gradual fashion, in the spring. But security measures, including cargo scanners, would have to be in place, he said.On Sunday, Israel allowed small shipments of strawberries and carnations to be exported from Gaza, the first of the season. Such seasonal shipments were permitted even at the height of the blockade, as part of an arrangement with the European Union.Blair, meanwhile, expressed concern that projects he has been promoting, such as industrial parks and the first planned Palestinian city in the West Bank, are too often held up whenever there is an impasse in Israeli-Palestinian peace talks. The planned city, Rawabi, has been on hold for a year because Israel has not given the go-ahead for paving a short access road through an Israeli-controlled area.I think this got all somewhat bound up in the political discussions and negotiations,Blair said, adding that he was hopeful there would be movement on the Rawabi project soon.What you can't have is a situation, and this is frankly something that worries me at the moment, you can't have a situation where every time there is a political impasse, everything else stops,he said.

Netanyahu's office declined comment on Sunday's meeting with Blair.While isolating the Hamas government in Gaza, Israel has been trying to talk peace with the rival Palestinian government in the West Bank. Talks have been stalled since late September.The Palestinians hope to establish an independent state in the West Bank and Gaza, which lie on opposite sides of Israel, but their internal divisions are a major obstacle.On Sunday, Hamas prevented two advisers to Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas, the group's West Bank-based rival, from entering Gaza. Hamas police spokesman Ihab Ghussein said the ban came after Abbas' forces began a new arrest campaign of Hamas loyalists in the West Bank. Also Sunday, Israel's Dan bus company said pressure from pro-Palestinian groups forced French multinational Veolia to drop out of an Israeli light rail project that cuts into east Jerusalem.Veolia disputed the assertion, which would bolster an international campaign to boycott companies supporting Israel's occupation of the West Bank and east Jerusalem. It said its decisions were based solely on financial considerations.Veolia originally had planned to sell its 5 percent stake in the project to Israeli company Dan bus lines, but later sold it to a rival. Dan is now suing Veolia.Additional reporting by Amy Teibel in Jerusalem.

South Korea's Lee warns North against further attacks By Jack Kim and Kim Miyoung - NOV 28,10

SEOUL (Reuters) – South Korean President Lee Myung-bak on Monday labeled North Korea's artillery attack on a southern island a crime against humanity and said Pyongyang will pay the price for any further provocation.Lee made his first address to the nation since last Tuesday's attack as U.S. as South Korean war ships took part in day two of military maneuvers, prompting concern in regional power China and threats of all-out war from North Korea.North Korea will pay the price in the event of further provocations, Lee said. Attacking civilians militarily is an inhumane crime that is strictly forbidden in a time of war.The bombardment of the island of Yeonpyeong killed two Marines and two civilians, prompting outrage among South Koreans who say their government has been too weak in its response.China has proposed emergency talks amid global pressure on Beijing to be more aggressive in helping resolve the standoff between the rival Koreas and try to rein in ally Pyongyang which depends on China for aid.Washington and Tokyo were non-committal, saying they would consult with Seoul, which was skeptical of the proposal to sit down with North Korea around a table, effectively rewarding it for bad behavior.The reclusive North was previously offered massive aid in return for disarmament pledges that went unmet.A senior North Korean official also expressed skepticism about the Chinese call, Japan's Kyodo news agency said. North Korea has yet to issue an official response but the official, speaking on condition of anonymity, said countries responsible for (the latest standoff) should first hold talks.

North Korea was typically bellicose in a newspaper commentary on Monday.The United States is making a mistake if it believes it can surprise anyone or put pressure by bringing in a nuclear-powered aircraft carrier, the Rodong Sinmun newspaper said, quoted by KCNA news agency.We don't want war, but we are not afraid of one. If war mongers want to wage provocations against us, we will not hesitate for a moment to strike back and go to the roots of aggression and eliminate the source of war from this land.The Chinese Foreign Ministry said State Councillor Dai Bingguo, who advises senior leaders on foreign policy, had a phone call with Secretary of State Hillary Clinton late on Sunday.According to the account on the Foreign Ministry's website (www.mfa.gov.cn), Dai told Clinton: "China feels deeply anxious about developments on the Korean peninsula, and believes it is imperative to strive to ease the current situation. We oppose any actions that could lead to an escalation in tensions.At this crucial moment, China and the United States should play a constructive role and strive together to calm the situation and protect the peace and stability of the Korean peninsula.The United States said six-party talks cannot substitute for action by North Korea to comply with its obligations, referring to disarmament talks which North Korea abandoned two years ago.The call for the two Koreas, the United States, Japan, and Russia to meet at a forum hosted by China must be reviewed very cautiously in view of North Korea's provocations, Seoul said.

A poll requested by the independent East Asia Institute think-tank showed 72 percent of South Koreans surveyed thought the government response to Tuesday's violence was inappropriate and 69 percent supported a restrained military attack.That figure was up sharply from less than 30 percent in the previous poll after the sinking of the Cheonan naval vessel in March, also blamed on the North. Both Beijing and Pyongyang have been pressing regional powers to return to talks in some form or other for the past few months in a move analysts say is aimed at extracting concessions.China, which agreed with South Korea that the situation was worrisome, suggested the emergency talks for December. It did not say whether Pyongyang had agreed to join.

In the South Korean capital Seoul, dusted in snow, life and business went on as normal despite the raised tensions. In a sign of the prevailing calm, authorities lifted a ban on South Korean travel to the joint Kaesung industrial complex in North Korea for the day.Markets mirrored the broader region, as players judged the latest spat as being no worse than previous clashes between the Koreas, who are still technically at war having only signed a truce to stop fighting in the 1950-35 civil war.I am worried, but not that worried that I need to stay at home, said Eunhye Kim, an usher showing people from a packed theater.They don't really want to make war ... there's no gain for either side.(Additional reporting by Yoo Choonsik and Jeremy Laurence in Seoul, Chris Buckley in Beijing and Yoko Kubota in Tokyo; Writing by Nick Macfie and Jonathan Thatcher)

US, SKorea launch war games in tense Yellow Sea By DAVID GUTTENFELDER and JEAN H. LEE, Associated Press - NOV 28,10

YEONPYEONG ISLAND, South Korea – A U.S. supercarrier and South Korean destroyer took up position in the tense Yellow Sea on Sunday for joint military exercises that were a united show of force just days after a deadly North Korean artillery attack.As tensions escalated across the region, with North Korea threatening another merciless attack, China belatedly jumped into the fray. Beijing's top nuclear envoy, Wu Dawei, called for an emergency meeting in early December among regional powers involved in nuclear disarmament talks, including North Korea.Seoul responded cautiously to the proposal from North Korea's staunch ally, saying it should be reviewed very carefully in light of North Korea's recent revelation of a new uranium-enrichment facility, even as protesters begged President Lee Myung-bak to find a way to resolve the tension and restore peace.The troubled relations between the two Koreas, which fought a three-year war in the 1950s, have steadily deteriorated since Lee's conservative government took power in 2008 with a tough new policy toward nuclear-armed North Korea.Eight months ago, a South Korean warship went down in the western waters, killing 46 sailors in the worst attack on the South Korean military since the Korean War. Then, last Tuesday, North Korean troops showered artillery on Yeonpyeong, a South Korean-held island that houses military bases as well as a civilian population of 1,300 — an attack that marked a new level of hostility.Two South Korean marines and two civilians were killed and 18 others wounded in the hailstorm of artillery that sent residents fleeing into bunkers and reduced homes on the island to charred rubble.North Korea blamed the South for provoking the attack by holding artillery drills near the Koreas' maritime border, and has threatened to be merciless if the current war games — set to last until Dec. 1 — get too close to its territory.As U.S. and South Korean ships, including the nuclear-powered USS George Washington, sailed into the waters off Korea's west coast Sunday, China began launching its diplomatic bid to calm tensions.Washington and Seoul had been pressing China, North Korea's main ally and benefactor, to help defuse the situation amid fears of all-out war.

China, slow at first to react, has quickened its diplomatic intervention in recent days. Chinese state councilor Dai Bingguo made a last-minute visit to Seoul to confer with Lee.Lee pressured China to contribute to peace in a more objective, responsible matter, and warned Sunday that Seoul would respond strongly to any further provocation, the presidential office said.The strong words were Lee's first public comment in days. He was due to address the nation Monday morning amid calls from his people to take stronger action in dealing with the defiant North.Appearing Sunday CNN's State of the Union Sunday, U.S. Sen. John McCain, the top Republican on the Senate Armed Services Committee, said China should rein in its neighbor.The key to this, obviously, is China, McCain said. And, unfortunately, China is not behaving as a responsible world power. It cannot be in China's long-term interest to see a renewed conflict on the Korean peninsula.North Korea has walked a path of defiance since launching a rocket in April 2009 in violation of U.N. Security Council resolutions and abandoning the disarmament process in protest against the condemnation that followed.However, in recent months Pyongyang has shown an eagerness to get back to the talks, and has appeared increasingly frustrated by U.S. and South Korean reluctance to restart the negotiations.Seoul has said it wants an acknowledgment of regret for the sinking of the Cheonan warship in March as well as a concrete show of commitment to denuclearization.North Korea, which cites the U.S. military presence in South Korea as a main reason behind its drive to build atomic weapons, routinely calls the joint exercises between the allies a rehearsal for war.

Washington, which keeps 28,500 troops in South Korea to protect the ally, insists the routine drills were planned before last Tuesday's attack. The exercises will take place over four days, but no live-fire drills are planned, said Cmdr. Jeff Davis, spokesman for the 7th Fleet in Japan.Along scenic Mallipo Beach on the west coast, about 50 South Korean soldiers were laying down an aluminum road to prepare for an amphibious landing drill Monday. Barbed wire and metal staves ran the length of the beach for about 2 miles (3 kilometers). Military ships hovered in the distance. North Korea expressed renewed outrage over the Yellow Sea drills.The war games are a pretext for aggression and ignite a war at any cost,the National Peace Committee of Korea said in a statement carried Sunday by the official Korean Central News Agency.Hours earlier, the rattle of new artillery fire from North Korea sent residents, journalists, police and troops scrambling for cover on Yeonpyeong Island. None of the rounds landed on the island, military officials said, but the incident showed how tense the situation remains.Saying they could not guarantee the journalists' safety, South Korea's Defense Ministry sent a ship to ferry them off the island but bad weather forced them to cancel the evacuation. About 380 people, including 28 islanders and 190 journalists, remained on Yeonpyeong on Sunday, officials said.A similar burst of artillery fire Friday occurred just as the U.S. military's top commander in the region, Gen. Walter Sharp, was touring Yeonpyeong Island. No shells landed anywhere in South Korean territory.Calls for tougher action made way Sunday for pleas for peace among about 150 South Koreans who turned out for a vigil Sunday evening in a Seoul plaza, huddling with candles in paper cups and chanting, Give us peace! It was very shocking, said Kang Hong-koo, 22, a student. I'm here to appease the souls of the people who were killed in the North Korean attack. I hope the current tense situation is alleviated quickly.Jean H. Lee reported from Seoul.

China proposes emergency talks on Korea crisis By Kim Do-gyun And Jo Yong-hak – NOV 28,10

YEONPYEONG, South Korea (Reuters) – China called for emergency talks on resolving a crisis on the Korean peninsula on Sunday, and Seoul and Tokyo said they would study the proposal, as the U.S. and South Korean militaries started a massive drill.
Beijing's move to bring the two Koreas to the negotiating table comes after global pressure on China to take a more responsible role in the standoff and try to rein in ally Pyongyang.China made clear the talks would not amount to a resumption of six-party disarmament discussions that North Korea walked out of two years ago and declared dead. South Korea said it would carefully consider China's suggestion.Both Beijing and Pyongyang have been pressing regional powers to return to talks, in some form or other, for the past few months in a move analysts say is designed to extract concessions.China, which agreed with South Korea that the situation was worrisome, suggested the emergency talks for December among North and South Korea, host China, the United States, Japan and Russia. It did not say whether Pyongyang had agreed to join.Japan was non-committal. We want to respond cautiously while cooperating closely with South Korea and the United States, Kyodo news agency quoted Deputy Chief Cabinet Secretary Tetsuro Fukuyama as saying.Beijing has longstanding bonds with Pyongyang, and has sought to shield its small, poor neighbor from a backlash that China fears could draw an even more ferocious reaction from North Korea and dangerously destabilize the region.Critics in Washington and other capitals have said China's approach amounts to coddling a dangerous nuclear-armed state.John McCain, a Republican senator who lost to President Barack Obama in the 2008 White House race, said China should do more to restrain North Korea.Unfortunately, China is not behaving as a responsible world power, McCain told CNN's State of the Union program on Sunday. He said the call for talks was a fine first step but was not enough.I cannot believe that the Chinese should, in a mature fashion, not find it in their interest to restrain North Korea. So far, they are not,he said.

South Korea's marine commander on Saturday vowed thousand-fold revenge for the North Korean attack. North Korea said that if there had been civilian deaths, they were very regrettable,but that South Korea should be blamed for using a human shield.It also said the United States should be blamed for orchestrating the whole sequence of events to justify sending an aircraft carrier to join the maritime maneuvers.Yonhap new agency in Seoul said North Korea, whose ailing leader, Kim Jong-il, is preparing to hand over power to his youngest son, had moved surface-to-air and surface-to-surface missiles to frontline areas, days after it shelled Yeonpyeong killing four people. The North's official KCNA news agency warned of retaliatory action if its territory is violated.South Korea's Defense Ministry told journalists to leave the island on Sunday because the situation was bad. Many residents evacuated earlier said they did not want to return.In Seoul, life carried on normally for the city's more than 10 million residents, with downtown shopping districts jammed with people despite the freezing temperatures, and cafes decked with Christmas decorations doing brisk business.I am worried, but not that worried that I need to stay at home,said Eunhye Kim, an usher showing people from a packed theater in the capital. They don't really want to make war ... there's no gain for either side.

PRESSURE ON CHINA

The around-the-clock exercises, in waters well south of the disputed maritime boundary off the west coast, are being held in the face of misgivings by China and threats of all-out war from North Korea. The chairman of North Korea's Supreme People's Assembly will visit China from Tuesday, the official Xinhua news agency said.China has not taken sides in the conflict and declined to blame North Korea, unlike the United States, for the sinking of a South Korean naval vessel in March. We ask that China make a contribution to peace on the Korean peninsula by taking a more fair and responsible position on South-North Korea ties, South Korean President Lee Myung-bak said he had told a visiting Chinese delegation.Washington says the four-day drill is intended as a deterrent after the worst assault on South Korea since the end of the Korean War in 1953.Seoul expects jitters in financial markets to settle in the short term unless North Korea carries out further provocations, Yonhap quoted a senior Finance Ministry official as saying.The nuclear-powered carrier USS George Washington, which carries 75 warplanes and has a crew of over 6,000, has joined the exercises and will be accompanied by at least four other U.S. warships, an official from U.S. Forces Korea said.South Korea has deployed three destroyers, frigates and anti-submarine aircraft, Yonhap reported.(Additional reporting by Cheon Jong-woo, Jack Kim and Jeremy Laurence in Seoul; Chris Buckley and Sui-Lee Wee in Beijing and Ed Klamann in Tokyo)(Writing by Nick Macfie; Editing by Andrew Marshall and Philip Barbara)

McCain: Time to discuss regime change in NKorea
By DOUGLASS K. DANIEL, Associated Press - NOV 28,10


WASHINGTON – Sen. John McCain said Sunday it was time to discuss regime change in North Korea, but the former Navy combat pilot didn't say how he advocates changing the government in the repressive and secretive dictatorship.McCain, the top Republican on the Senate Armed Services Committee, said he was not suggesting military action against the North. He said the Chinese, the North's closest ally, should rein in its neighbor, and he accused Beijing of failing to play a responsible role in either the Korean peninsula, where tensions are high because of a recent attack by the North, or the world stage.The key to this, obviously, is China, McCain said on State of the Union on CNN. And, unfortunately, China is not behaving as a responsible world power. It cannot be in China's long-term interest to see a renewed conflict on the Korean peninsula.The Arizona Republican added: They could bring the North Korean economy to its knees if they wanted to. And I cannot believe that the Chinese should, in a mature fashion, not find it in their interest to restrain North Korea. So far, they are not.China on Sunday proposed an emergency meeting of the six nations that have tried to engage North Korea in talks about its nuclear program. At the same time, U.S. and South Korea began naval war games in spite of North Korea's protests.Chinese state councilor Dai Bingguo made a last-minute visit to Seoul, the South Korean capital, to confer with the South Korean president, President Lee Myung-bak. Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton spoke with Dai and urged strong statements that the North cannot misinterpret, State Department spokesman P.J. Crowley said on Twitter.McCain said the Chinese government's call for emergency talks was a fine first step, but he questioned whether North Korea would stop its long history of confrontation without significant penalties.I think it's time we talked about regime change in North Korea, and I do not mean military action, but I do believe that this is a very unstable regime, McCain said.We can have a peaceful resolution to this issue,he said. But the North Korean regime is not one that's going to abandon the nuclear power status.North Korea shelled the South Korean island of Yeonpyeong last Tuesday, killing four people. In March, the North was accused of sinking a South Korean warship and killing 46 sailors. Also raising tensions was the North's recent revelation that it's operating a new uranium-enrichment facility.

Two other members of the Armed Services Committee, Sens. Lindsey Graham and Claire McCaskill, also called on China to take a stronger role in dissuading North Korean aggression.China has a chance to change the feature of the Korean peninsula, Graham, R-S.C., said on Fox News Sunday.I'm looking at China to step up their game against North Korea and try to get — bring them in the fold of a peaceful nation. So I think we should push China hard and keep the sanctions on North Korea,he said.McCaskill, D-Mo., said that while she agreed that China may not put the pressure it should on the North, it's not time to give up hoping China will restrain the regime in Pyongyang.I think China calling for a resuming of the six-party talks is important ... that's a good sign, she said.We need to continue the exercises. We need to take a very strong stand.

EU approves $113 billion bailout for Ireland By GABRIELE STEINHAUSER and SHAWN POGATCHNIK, Associated Press - NOV 28,10

BRUSSELS – EU governments on Sunday approved an euro85 billion ($113 billion) bailout deal for Ireland to help the debt-struck nation withstand the weight of its banking crisis.According to a statement released by the Irish government, the country will take euro10 billion immediately to boost the capital reserves of its banks. Another euro25 billion earmarked for the banks will remain in reserve.The Irish government's public finances will receive euro50 billion, to be drawn upon as necessary.It provides Ireland with vital time and space to successfully and conclusively address the unprecedented problems that we've been dealing with since this global economic crisis began, said Irish Prime Minister Brian Cowen at a press conference in Dublin.The statement said the International Monetary Fund, the 16 eurozone nations and the European Commission will be involved. Britain, Sweden and Denmark will offer bilateral loans.The statement says the average interest rate Ireland will is 5.8 percent. This total reflects higher rates to be charged by EU sources, and lower rates from IMF and national donors.Greece is paying 5.2 percent interest on its own bailout from May. Ireland's aid package includes loans that range from 3 to 7 1/2 years, longer than the Greeks' three-year deal.The European Commission also granted Ireland an extra year to bring down its deficit to within the EU limit of 3 percent of GDP. It will now have until 2015, compared with 2014 previously.Pogatchnik contributed to this report from Dublin. Associated Press Writer Robert Wielaard in Brussels contributed to this report.

Eyewitnesses Watched as China Earthquake Ripped Ground

livescience.com – Sun Nov 28, 9:50 am ET


The devastating earthquake that hit the heart of China in 2008 caught the region unguarded, and left tens of thousands of people dead.Because the destruction was so widespread, many people witnessed the ground rip apart, which along with other observations and studies, is helping geologists piece together exactly what happened - and how to prevent future catastrophes.The area of Wenchuan, China, was crippled by the 7.9-magnitude earthquake that struck on May 12, 2008. The temblor killed more than 70,000 people, injured about 374,000, and left approximately 18,000 missing and presumed dead, according to the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS). More than 45.5 million people across 10 provinces were affected by the quake. Four million people lost their homes. Several cities were almost completely destroyed.Before the 2008 quake, the region was downgraded to a low seismic risk, so the massive temblor caught many scientists by surprise, which isn't uncommon even in areas known to have frequent earthquakes.Unfortunately, it's kind of a truism about the state of our knowledge that we're constantly surprised, said Ken Hudnut, a geologist with the USGS in Pasadena, Calif., who has studied the Wenchuan earthquake.The most recent comparable earthquake in the area was between 1,000 to 2,000 years ago, suggests a study in the November edition of the journal Bulletin of the Seismological Society of America. The issue of the journal is a special one devoted to studies of the 2008 earthquake.The eyewitness reports were published in the November/December edition of the journal Seismological Research Letters.

Rupture

The earthquake ruptured at 6:28 a.m. local time on May 12 along the Longmenshan margin of the eastern edge of the Tibetan Plateau.The rupture caused a 149-mile-long (240 kilometers) surface crack along one pre-existing fault and an additional 45-mile-long (72-km) surface rupture along another fault.Field investigations and seismic data show that the earthquake was triggered by active faults of the Longmenshan thrust belt. Here, tectonic stress grew as the Earth's crust slowly moved from the high Tibetan Plateau to the west, against the strong crust underlying the Sichuan Basin and southeastern China.Once the stress was too much, the earthquake mostly ruptured in what is called a strike-slip fault - these fault systems slide side-to-side when two tectonic plates butt heads. Up to 30 feet (9 meters) of slip may have occurred during the rupture.Such a big gradient typically raises a red flag about earthquakes and landslides. At least 700 people were buried by a landslide in one area during the Wenchuan quake.Take steep topography and shake it hard in an earthquake and stuff's going to come down, Hudnut told OurAmazingPlanet.

Eyewitness reports

Eyewitnesses reported about a mile (1.5 kilometers) of surface faulting in one area. Cracks and fractures were seen on three mountains in the area, and subsidence (the earth shifting to a different level) and street cracks were observed in one city, according to the USGS.Photographs show buildings split by surface ruptures, and people watched as the ground pulled apart right in their backyards.Eyewitness accounts of the surface ruptures have been rare, but they are extraordinary, Hudnut said. Hudnut and colleagues have also interviewed eyewitnesses of the 2010 El Mayor-Cucapah earthquake in Baja California. One person stepped outside right as the ground ripped apart in front of his house and described the rupture as sounding like a race car going by, Hudnut said.

Possible tornadoes in La., Tenn. damage homes
– Fri Nov 26, 10:50 am ET


IOTA, La. – Forecasters say possible tornadoes in southwest Louisiana and western Tennessee have damaged more than two dozen homes, but no one has been injured.
National Weather Service meteorologist Joe Rua says winds damaged roofs and uprooted trees just before 11 p.m. Thursday in Louisiana. In West Tennessee, a barn was destroyed and a half-dozen homes were damaged in Gibson County.Sheriff Chuck Arnold says residents reported seeing a funnel cloud about 2 p.m. Thursday.A strong cold front has brought rain and wind across the Southeast.Meteorologists are going out to the damaged areas to see if was caused by tornadoes or strong winds.

Powerful storm to bring snow, ice to the Dakotas By JAMES MacPHERSON, Associated Press – Thu Nov 25, 3:14 am ET

BISMARCK, N.D. – A powerful storm that pummeled much of the West is promising to bring its chaotic mix of snow, sleet and ice to much of the Dakotas on Thanksgiving Day. The system closed roads and delayed flights from Anchorage to Salt Lake City on some of the busiest travel days of the year.Meteorologists warned residents in the Dakotas to expect a range of messy wintery weather, from freezing drizzle in the eastern two-thirds of South Dakota to a possible blizzard in eastern North Dakota.

Like the Boy Scouts, you've got to be prepared for a North Dakota winter or you're asking for your own problems, said Gerald Miller, 52, who plowed roads on his farm just east of Bismarck on Wednesday.Miller has spent every winter of his life in North Dakota except for one in 2003 when he served in Iraq with the National Guard. After Iraq, I promised I'd never complain about the weather in North Dakota again, he said.Blowing snow was likely to cause problems for holiday travelers even in areas not expected to get significant amounts.We have snow on the ground in many areas, and any snow on top of that will combine for the potential to blow around, reduce visibility and drift, and cause problems for people trying to drive, meteorologist Jeff Savadel said.State officials in both Dakotas issued statements urging people to be cautious.In South Dakota, truckers carefully navigated the icy roads, with snow expected later in the day.It's getting bad, said Bob Grape, who had stopped at a gas station in Sioux Falls on his way north. Grape said he would keep moving through the weather unless it got significantly worse.There isn't a load of freight that's important enough to risk your life,he said.In Iowa, at least three people died in weather-related crashes as freezing rain and drizzle left roads with a light glaze.There were 23 accidents during the day Wednesday, police said. State officials say many northern Iowa roads were covered with ice and many schools in the region were closed early.

The storm system buried Seattle in snow, causing at least three deaths, and shut down highways for a time in Idaho, Wyoming and Utah. It also brought high winds on Wednesday to New Mexico and northern Arizona.The roads were less chaotic in Utah on Wednesday. On Tuesday night, there were 118 traffic collisions and 119 vehicles that slid off the road, police said.National Weather Service snow totals showed that it wasn't the quantity of snow that made for treacherous driving.Most cities in Utah received less than 6 inches in the previous 24 hours — an amount residents here are accustomed to. Instead, the danger largely came from high winds blowing snow at night that made it difficult.A lot of people heeded the message, stayed off the road and cut down on a lot of problems,Utah Highway Patrol Trooper Todd Johnson said. The crash figures — they're not as high as I expected them to be.

France and Germany in deal on euro zone crisis: sources
– Sun Nov 28, 9:25 am ET


BRUSSELS (Reuters) – Germany and France have reached an agreement on how a future permanent mechanism for resolving debt crises in the euro zone should work once it is introduced in 2013, euro zone sources said on Sunday.The main points of the deal were expected to be announced later on Sunday after a meeting of European Union finance ministers on approving a financial rescue for Ireland to prevent market contagion spreading to Portugal and Spain.Some of the ministers signaled they would also discuss broader issues to stabilize the single currency, an apparent reference to the permanent rescue mechanism to replace a temporary structure that was created in May.France and Germany have pushed in the last hours for the Ecofin (finance ministers) to send a clear message on the participation of the private sector in the permanent mechanism. A deal has been reached, said an EU source familiar with the talks.Economists have said that to stop the euro zone's sovereign debt crisis from spreading from Ireland, the 16 countries that use the currency need to spell out the details of the permanent mechanism for debt crisis resolution.Germany and France say the European Financial Stability Facility, created to support euro zone countries with sovereign debt problems after Greece sank into crisis, must be replaced by a permanent structure in 2013.Germany and France say the permanent system should involve private bondholders -- banks, pension funds and other investment vehicles -- incurring losses if a country defaults or has to restructure its debts.There is concern in financial markets over how big a write-down bondholders could suffer.

The EU sources said European Economic and Monetary Affairs Commissioner Olli Rehn, EU President Herman Van Rompuy and Eurogroup chairman Jean-Claude Juncker discussed the issue in talks on Sunday before the finance ministers' meeting.They gave the go-ahead to the main line of this permanent mechanism. It would be 90 percent inspired by the EFSF, with a strong legal basis to please Germany, a clear role for the IMF and a participation of the private sector, one source said.A second source said the participation of the private sector should be on a case-by-case basis.It is unlikely that this proposal will be made public tonight ... but its main lines will be made public as well as the question of the private sector's participation, one of the sources said.(Reporting by Julien Toyer, writing by Jan Strupczewski, editing by Timothy Heritage)

Asian markets mixed in early trade amid concerns
NOV 28,2010


TOKYO – Asian markets were mixed in late morning trade Monday amid caution over tensions on the Korean peninsula and the debt crisis in Europe.The Nikkei 225 stock average rose 0.30 percent to 10,069.38 at the end of morning trade, buoyed largely by a stronger dollar.Electronics, auto and other exporter issues led morning gains, as a higher dollar benefits exporters as it increases the value of their repatriated profits.The dollar rose to 84.09 yen from 82.55 yen late Friday. The euro stood at $1.3217 from $1.3726.Worries about an escalation between the Koreas weighed heavily on rest of Asian stocks, while investors were also concerned about debt problems in Ireland.Taiwan's Taiex rose 0.46 percent to 8,349.99, while South Korea's Kospi fell 0.31 percent to 1,895.44, and Australia's S&P/ASX200 index dropped 0.65 percent, to 4,568.40. Shares in Shanghai, the Philippines and New Zealand also fell.European Union nations agreed Sunday to give euro67.5 billion ($89.4 billion) in bailout loans to Ireland to help it weather the cost of its massive banking crisis, and sketched out new rules for future emergencies in an effort to restore faith in the euro currency.Joint military exercises involving a nuclear-powered U.S. supercarrier and a South Korean destroyer continued Monday, nearly a week after a deadly attack on a South Korean island sent tensions soaring in the region.In New York on Friday, the Dow Jones industrial average fell 95.28, or 0.9 percent, to 11,092.
