Oops – ‘John McCain Blasts Obama-Raul Castro Handshake, Forgets He Met With Al-Qaeda Fighters’

Selective memory is one of his strong points – that’s why he did so well in the race he lost – grin.

The Last Of The Millenniums

Sen John McCain – “It gives Raul some propaganda to continue to prop up dictatorial, brutal regime, that’s all it is,” the Arizona Republican insisted.“Why should you shake hands with somebody who’s keeping Americans in prison?” “I mean, what’s the point?” he added. “Neville Chamberlain shook hands with Hitler.”

‘Media reports that surfaced Thursday claimed some of the opposition fighters he met and posed for pictures with during a recent trip to Syria were actually extremists’.

Bubonic plague killed 20 villagers in Madagascar, health experts confirm | World news | theguardian.com

Once feared as the Black Death – the rodent-born disease that wiped out a third of the world\’s population in the Middle Ages – bubonic plague has killed 20 villagers in Madagascar in one of the worst outbreaks globally in recent years, health experts have confirmed.

The confirmation that bubonic plague was responsible for the deaths last week near the north-western town of Mandritsara follows a warning in October from the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) that the island nation was at risk of a plague epidemic.

The Pasteur Institute of Madagascar revealed on Tuesday that tests taken from bodies in the village last week showed that they had died of the bubonic plague. The institute added it was concerned the disease could spread to towns and cities where living standards have declined since a coup in 2009.

Holden to cease manufacturing operations in Australia by 2017 – ABC News (Australian Broadcasting Corporation)

Holden was GM’s Chevy in Australia and the remarks by their PM show they don’t, in fact,  have a clue or a plan… This will mean that Toyota will probably also leave and all medium and small suppliers will be shut down in a few years – will add up to 10,000 or more people out of good paying jobs and may lead to other industries deciding they can shift to exporting to Australia or just abandon the market. All because leadership at GM and in Aussie government’s are no longer up to their jobs!

Prime Minister Tony Abbott says it is \”dark day\” for manufacturing in Australia.

\”This is a dark day but there will be better days ahead,\” he told Parliament upon his return from South Africa, where he attended the Nelson Mandela memorial service.

\”It is my determination … to work with the people of Australia to ensure that the strengths of our society continue to be built on.\”
