Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides is the fourth instalment or rather a spin off of Pirates of the Caribbean series. At long last we get to see more of Pirates of the Caribbean one of the most noticeable changes is the director. All of the films from the series so far have been directed by Gore Verbinski this one was directed by Rob Marshall who also directed the popular children’s film G-Force. Jack Sparrow is the main character and fortunately for them Johnny Depp agreed to play Jack Sparrow once again. Almost all the characters that have returned for Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides is the same actors from the previous three films.

Captain Jack Sparrow is on a mission to find the fountain of youth, he crosses paths with Angelica (played by Penelope Cruz) a woman from his past. He cannot decide if it’s a good thing or not to have met up with her. That’s at least until she is forces him unto the Queen Anne’s Revenge Blackbeard’s (played by Ian McShane) ship. Blackbeard is also in search of the fountain of youth to regain his youth once again. Jack is stuck knowing not who to fear more Blackbeard or the woman of his past.

Amazon.co.uk is down, is Anonymous responsible?

Amazon in the United Kingdom is down, not only for those browsing in the UK but from any location. The website seems to be under a DDoS attack. We have no information if Anonymous is responsible but they might be behind it.

At this point no one knows. Anonymous took revenge last week against sites that kicked Wikileaks from using certain providers of services or providers that refused Wikileaks access to their services and payment systems. Visa, Mastercard, Paypal and a few others got attacked.

It was said that Amazon was also a target and a lot of people believed that Anonymous failed in taking down Amazon but they never did try to take down Amazon.com according to insiders and a press release from a Twitter account that appeared to be connected to Anonymous.

So, is Anonymous behind what looks like an attack on Amazon.co.uk?

Update: Amazon.de in Germany is down as well.

Update: Amazon.fr in France is down.

Update: Amazon.it is down, no Amazon for Italy tonight.

Update: Amazon.co.uk, Amazon.it and the rest are back online.

Update: Thus far Anonymous or those that appear to be part of Anonymous says they are not behind the attacks or downtime of the Amazon servers.

Update: It was not Anonymous, It was not attacks either it was Amazon’s hardware that malfunctioned.

Wikileaks: American company DunCorp held boy rape party for police trainees

Dancing Afghan boys is a pretty description for boy slaves that’s dressed up in women’s clothes with make-up on made to dance for men who then ‘buy’ them for the night for sex. In short: dressed up paedophilia. They are called Bacha Bazi translated ‘boy play’ and is a common tradition in Afghanistan that have been practised for hundreds of years. It used to be held in public places until western society showed their disapproval in the 1800’s the practice went undercover. When the Taliban came with Sharia Law – the practice was abolished according to Sharia Law and it could only be found in Northern Afghanistan done by powerful men in private that was until the Taliban was removed. The practice is flourishing once again more openly done in over 100 years. It is explained as something of a status if a man have the opportunity to own a Bacha Bazi boy, he is deemed powerful and rich.

Wikileaks say the USA government have been funding this practice inadvertently. A company called DynCorp is being paid by the USA government to train the Afghani police force, which they are doing. But they have held an Bacha Bazi party for the men they are training – paying for it – that includes bringing in drugs (type not named) and paying the little boy’s pimps. What DunCorp did was take a bunch of high trainees and gave them a bunch of boys to molest. This practice is also against the law, so not only are they using American citizens to pay for a ‘party’ featuring this barbaric practice they are breaking the Afghan law. How this information got about was with Afghanistan’s interior minister, Atmar, asked America too cover up that such a party took place because a reporter was going to uncover it and he was afraid of what that would do to all the ‘good’ work DynCorp has done. Their advise just let it go, it’s a minor thing nothing to worry about if no one makes a fuss it will just go away. The reporter wrote a article on the party and mentioned it was held and funded by DynCorp but he made the Bacha Bazi sound like a male traditional entertainer. No mention of the fact that the entertainer is a boy just before puberty and that he is basically a slave and so it just blew over, no one really took notice.

Here is a part of a documentary that was on Frontline about the Dancing boys of Afghanistan. It gives a person a complete picture of how depraved the practice truly is.

This is what American taxpayers have become party to, it would not have been revealed to the extent it has, if not for Wikileaks.

North Korea: We will punish provocative forces and invaders cruelly

North Korea said that the Korean Peninsula has been “escalted into the situation of full scale war” .

They blamed the United States and South Korea for being “pro war fanatics of the South”. North Korea’s propaganda machine said “Our military and all the citizens are ready to deal with all, whether it is limited or full-scale war”.

The newest statement from North Korea reads “It is crystal-clear that the provocations will expand to the full-scale war not confined to limited war if the South fires at us with aircraft, war ships and missiles and the U.S. intervene in war with its up-to-date weapons,”

“It will not remain as limited to the Korean Peninsula if the all-out war breaks out on this soil,”

“We will punish provocative forces and invaders cruelly and protect the dignity and security of the people gloriously.”

Wikileaks – Zimbabwe displaces 25000 people to mine for diamonds, army forces villagers to mine

A Wikileaks cable revealed that around 25000 people were displaced because the Zimbabwe military wanted to clear the area for diamond mining. The area was labeled as “government reserve area” and then the people were to be moved to a “farm” where they were to be provided with tents.

The area is bigger than several hundred square kilometers where the diamond mine was said to be and the area where the villagers were to be moved to was said to be “just rough bush” in the cable.

A Russian gold company then found gold at the location where the villagers were to be moved and then “Consequently, the military is now seeking an alternate relocation site for the villagers.”

The cable also explained of villagers being forced to feed the army and the army forced the villagers dig for diamonds.

The cable dates back to 2009.

The mentioned area in the cable was Marange.

The cable also explained that the reason for this was that Mugabe wanted to use the diamonds to “bail out the failed Zimbabwean economy”.

Brazil approves $178million budget for promoting “Schools Without Homophobia”

Brazil approved a $178 million budget to promote homosexual lifestyle and to fight “homophobia”. The program dubbed “Brazil without homophobia” will cypher the money to homosexual organization in order to promote the program.

The money will also be used to initiate the “Homophobia law” that makes it illegal to speak against homosexuals in the country. It does not end there. Brazil will use the money to promote “schools without homophobia” program that tries to teach children that homophobia is normal and should be accepted.

Many Brazil organizations and family groups have condemned the programs.

Anonymous launches Operation Leakspin

The battle continues for the freedom of information against those that attempt to censor the truth. The non-group Anonymous is launching their newest attack called operation “Leakspin”.

The operation is to take cables that did or does not get enough attention and spread them everywhere. “All the world will know about the injustices perpetrated on the people by governments worldwide.”

The idea has seen massive response thus far and cables that did not get any attention are already getting much more exposure than they did a when they were launched.

One person dies of swine flu in Jerusalem

4.9 Magnitude Earthquake hits California

A moderate 4.9 magnitude earthquake hit California at around 12:52 UTC time. The earthquake hit at a depth of 10km and was 21km away from Gua. No damage to buildings were reported and no injuries were reported.

This earthquake is above average for the location and might be a sign of bigger earthquakes to come.

The earthquake was measured and recorded by the U.S. Geological Survey

Cyber war, army of hackers – Words to get used to

Many mainstream news outlets are now carrying on with the propaganda war, they are making the people ready to accept “security measures” long planned before Wikileaks even existed. Those security measures will obviously cost you more freedoms like all things security in the United States.

The reason Obama is so silent on the current “war” going on online is because he is sitting back, relaxing and waiting for the dust to settle. Then he will bring out those new online security measures to protect the “citizens of the world” from attacks.

The real cyber war is being waged against the average law abiding citizen that will soon see security measures to keep them safe because the internet is a dangerous place afterall.

We will see Obama, the hero will come help us all and bring in security measures that will crush Anonymous but off course that will require you to either get a licence to browse or a real internet ID. Maybe in the near future security will be so good you will have to log on to the internet with a chip embedded in your arm, that way no one can steal your details.

Obviously there is lot of sarcasm in this article but be ready because new security measures that will once again lessen your freedoms are coming very soon and if we look at people like Lieberman then we see there is entire queues waiting to bring out new “safety measures” that will “protect you” from information mostly that is.

 

Wikileaks “aware” of Anonymous attacks

Wikileaks said they neither condemn nor appluad the attacks against Mastercard, Paypal and State.gov and that the attacks is a reflection of public opinion.

 


Wikileaks is aware that several government agencies and corporations, including the Swedish prosecutor, Mastercard, PayPal and State.gov have come under cyber-attack in recent days, and have often been driven offline as a result.

The attacks are of a similar nature to those received – and endured – by the Wikileaks website over the past week, since the publication of the first of 250,000 US Embassy Cables.

These denial of service attacks are believed to have originated from an internet gathering known as Anonymous. This group is not affiliated with Wikileaks. There has been no contact between any Wikileaks staffer and anyone at Anonymous. Wikileaks has not received any prior notice of any of Anonymous’ actions.

Wikileaks spokesman Kristinn Hrafnsson said: “We neither condemn nor applaud these attacks. We believe they are a reflection of public opinion on the actions of the targets.”

Ron Paul defends Wikileaks on House Floor

Congressman Ron Paul addressed the house about Wikileaks. He stated that the attack on Julian Assange is like killing the messenger for bringing bad news and gave them nine questions to consider:

Number 1: Do the America People deserve know the truth regarding the ongoing wars in Iraq, Afghanistan, Pakistan and Yemen?

Number 2: Could a larger question be how can an army private access so much secret information?

Number 3: Why is the hostility directed at Assange, the publisher, and not at our governments failure to protect classified information?

Number 4: Are we getting our moneys worth of the 80 Billion dollars per year spent on intelligence gathering?

Number 5: Which has resulted in the greatest number of deaths: lying us into war or Wikileaks revelations or the release of the Pentagon Papers?

Number 6: If Assange can be convicted of a crime for publishing information that he did not steal, what does this say about the future of the first amendment and the independence of the internet?

Number 7: Could it be that the real reason for the near universal attacks on Wikileaks is more  about secretly maintaining a seriously flawed foreign policy of empire than it is about national security?

Number 8: Is there not a huge difference between releasing secret information to help the enemy in a time of declared war, which is treason, and the releasing of information to expose our government lies that promote secret wars, death and corruption?

Number 9: Was it not once considered patriotic to stand up to our government when it is wrong?

Thomas Jefferson had it right when he advised ‘Let the eyes of vigilance never be closed’
