An Exclusive Interview with Julian Assange on the Eve of His Arrest

By Natalia Viana - Opera Mundi, translated by Narco News

... Viana: What is your opinion about the freezing of your money transfers by the business PayPal, and that Amazon removed your site? How do you see those acts?

Assange: It is fascinating to see the tentacles of the corrupt American elite. In a way, to observe this reaction is as important as seeing the material that we published. PayPal and Amazon froze our accounts for political reasons. With PayPal, 70,000 euros were frozen. With our defense fund, that was 31,000 euros.

Viana: What do they allege?

Assange: They say that we were conducting "illegal activities," and that clearly is untrue. More, they are echoing the accusations of (US Secretary of State) Hillary Clinton that we have published documents that can cause problems for the USA. At the same time, the leader of the Senate Homeland Security Committee said he is very proud to have caused Amazon's actions when he demanded the closing of our site. ...

Was This Man Behind The Most Immoral Weapon Of All Time?

From Tony Rennel's article in the Daily Mail:

The bombs that obliterated Hiroshima and Nagasaki were crude, blunt instruments of destruction. Using the previously unharnessed power of atomic fission, they razed miles of human habitation to the ground, reducing people, houses, shops and factories to ash. It fell to Cohen to discover a way to refine this device into something more precise.
In the Fifties, Cohen — who died on Sunday aged 89 — invented the neutron bomb, a device that can still make the blood run cold.

Why? Because the neutron bomb was designed to kill people with massive doses of radiation while leaving buildings, cities, whole countries pretty well intact. It seemed as if he had created the supreme immoral weapon.

It made the controversial Cohen a particular target for peace protesters. It also fuelled intense debate at the top levels of government and the military about how best to use nuclear weapons — hopefully, without bringing the world to an end in the ultimate holocaust scenario of a confrontation between the West and the Soviet bloc.

Cohen's contribution, put simply, was to reconfigure the components of the bomb in such a way as to reduce the size of the blast caused by its detonation — the bit that starts fires and knocks down buildings — but increase the destructive power of the radiation it released.

The Hiroshima bomb, which was tiny compared with the ones made in the feverish post-war arms race between Washington and Moscow, flattened areas more than four miles from the point of detonation. Cohen's device would cause the same degree of devastation, but over just a third of a mile. Beyond that, buildings would largely manage to survive.

But Cohen ramped up the radiation dose, with the result that death for those exposed to the blast over many miles would be instant. As a bonus, that radiation would also be much more quickly dissipated in the atmosphere. Areas hit by the bomb would be inhabitable again rather than nuclear deserts.

Given a scenario that seemed to put infrastructure above human life, it's no wonder that even many of those at the heart of the Cold War — U.S. Presidents such as Jimmy Carter among them —shuddered and drew back from this chilling prospect.

Some updates from the nuclear front:


Ducked and Covered: A Survival Guide to the Post Apocalypse is an instructional public information film designed to assist the general population with surviving life in Australia after a nuclear war. Produced by the Australian Board of Civil Defence during the early 1980s, this previously unseen, dusty print was uncovered deep within a university film archive.
Broken into four chapters, the film guides wary survivors through the trials that will await them in the post apocalypse. From post-apocalyptic fashion and unique uses for surplus human skulls, to becoming a local warlord and avoiding radioactive mutants, there is something for all dwellers of the wastelands. With its dry methodical narration, brooding synthesizer, minimalist animation and erroneous guidance, Ducked and Covered is a dark humored parody/loving homage to the late cold war era, early 1980’s public information films, as well as a reminder… OF WHAT STILL COULD BE.


Russia Moves Tactical Nukes Closer to NATO. Gulp.

...As recently as this spring, the Russians have moved their tactical nukes to sites close to their Western frontiers, alarming the Baltic and Eastern European members of NATO, the Wall Street Journal reports. Russia's longstanding position is that it won't pull its tactical nuclear weapons behind the Ural Mountains until the U.S. gets its own small nukes out of Europe. True totals of Russian tactical nuclear weapons is a tightly-held secret, but the Federation of American Scientists estimated last year that Moscow has nearly 5,400 of them, with about 2,000 deployed.

The Russian nuke movement isn't expressly forbidden by prior nuclear treaties; and the Journal notes that it "appeared to coincide" with the arrival of NATO missile defense systems near Russia's European borders. At the NATO summit in Lisbon this month, Russian President Dmitry Medvedev endorsedbuilding a joint NATO-Russia missile defense system over the next ten years — a big NATO priority — but warned that if "universal" missile defense couldn't be fielded, a "new round of arms race will start." So it's tense, but it's not necessarily time to dig out that old Sting song out of the record crates...


IAEA agrees to create international nuclear fuel bank

(Xinhua) -- The International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) approved on Friday an U.S. proposal on the establishment of a Low Enriched Uranium (LEU) Bank run by the agency.

According to the plan passed at the IAEA board meeting, the agency will be the owner of the LEU in the bank, which will be located in one or more Member States that is prepared to act as a host state.

The plan says LEU from the IAEA LEU bank will be supplied to Member States that experience a nuclear fuel supply disruption due to exceptional circumstances, and is unable to secure supply from the commercial market.

A statement from the EU representative to IAEA said the EU Council of Ministers had decided to support the establishment of an IAEA (LEU) Bank, and declared its readiness to make a substantial financial contribution to support the proposal.

However, the plan has met opposition from some developing countries. They worry that a nuclear fuel bank could undermine their right to acquire their own nuclear technology for peaceful purposes. Some countries are also concerned with the possibility of fuel supply being controlled by western powers and used for political purposes.

Hu Xiaodi, the Chinese envoy to IAEA, told the board meeting that while the objective of preventing the proliferation of nuclear weapons should be promoted, Member States' right to peaceful uses of nuclear energy should not be affected.


Evangelicals join US bishops in calling for approval of nuclear weapons treaty

The National Association of Evangelicals is joining with the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops (USCCB) in calling for "immediate and bipartisan action" to ratify the new Strategic Arms Reduction Treaty, which was signed by President Barack Obama and Russian President Dmitry Medvedev on April 8.

"The Church's concern for nuclear weapons grows out of its commitment to the sanctity of human life," said Bishop Howard Hubbard of Albany, chairman of the USCCB Committee on International Justice and Peace, in a recent letter to senators. "This commitment led to the development of just war criteria, including the principles of discrimination and proportionality. Nuclear weapons are a grave threat to human life and dignity. Nuclear war is rejected in Church teaching because the use of nuclear weapons cannot ensure noncombatant immunity and their destructive potential and lingering radiation cannot be meaningfully proportionate."




Wikileaks Founder Julian Assange Arrested In London

The BBC reports:

The founder of the whistle-blowing website Wikileaks, Julian Assange, has been arrested by police in London.

The 39-year-old Australian, who was the subject of a European arrest warrant, denies allegations he sexually assaulted two women in Sweden.

Mr Assange is due to appear at City of Westminster Magistrates' Court later.

A Wikileaks spokesman said Mr Assange's arrest was an attack on media freedom but it would not stop the release of more secret files.

Kristinn Hrafnsson told Reuters on Tuesday: "Wikileaks is operational. We are continuing on the same track as laid out before.

"Any development with regards to Julian Assange will not change the plans we have with regards to the releases today and in the coming days."

Secret locations

He said Wikileaks was being operated by a group in London and other secret locations.

Scotland Yard said Mr Assange was arrested by appointment at a London police station at 0930 GMT.

Mr Assange is accused by the Swedish authorities of one count of rape, one of unlawful coercion and two counts of sexual molestation, alleged to have been committed in August 2010.

If the district judge rules the arrest warrant is legally correct, he could be extradited to Sweden.

But the process could take months.

Swiss Post to shut bank account of Assange

Swiss Post announced Monday it will close down the bank account of WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange, saying he gave false information when he opened the account.

'PostFinance will terminate its business relationship with Julian Assange,' according to a statement which used the official name of the bank run by the post office.

The announcement about the account was the latest blow to the site, which last week lost control of its domain name wikileaks.org and its ability to receive PayPal donations.

It is employing 70 other internet domains in various nations as 'mirror sites' to keep broadcasting leaked US diplomatic cables, including the primary mirror in Switzerland.

WikiLeaks had asked on its website for donations to be sent to the PostFinance account for the so-called 'Julian Assange Defence Fund'.

The statement from the Swiss Post said Assange gave 'false information' regarding his domicile when he opened the account.

The post's bank is only open to residents of Switzerland or Swiss citizens, Andrey had warned over the weekend.

Rage Against Cash Machine: Bank Run Day take-away to trash financial terror?


French bankers have a nervous day ahead. They're waiting to see whether a campaign calling on depositors to withdraw all their money will really catch on. It's been organized by a former French football star against what he calls the 'corrupt and criminal' financial system.

UPDATE

Activists empty bank accounts to protest bailouts

(AP) A group of activists in Paris have emptied their bank accounts after a call by French sports icon Eric Cantona to protest practices by leading banks.

The group marched in costumes in Paris on Tuesday and withdrew money from a branch of Societe Generale. They then opened accounts with a nearby branch of Credit Cooperatif bank.

Activists have seized on former Manchester United star Cantona's call in October for depositors to empty their bank accounts. The groups suggest signing up with cooperative banks and rejecting major banks that were given bailouts and that are often blamed for the global financial crisis.

Bankers and some economists warn against heeding the call.

The football star-turned-actor was nowhere to be seen Tuesday.

Greece: 6 December Protest And Clashes With Police

And a bit of censored news: Police raided the site of the memorial for 15-year old Alexandros Grigoropoulos yesterday while student protesters were paying their respects. Grigoropoulos was shot by a policeman on this day two years ago. The police attempted to desecrate the site, tearing up as much as they could of the makeshift altar that has sprung up in that location and ripping out a tree planted there by students.


Clashes continued late into the night.

More than 50 protest marches were held throughout the country.


Max Keiser: "IMF is Pledging Greece's Assets as Collateral"

Interview bu Helen Skopis




For eleven years the Gold Anti Trust Action Committee has been amassing evidence that the prices of gold and silver are suppressed. As part of an ongoing investigation, it has now become clear that JP Morgan is sitting on what is estimated to be a 3.3 billion ounce short position on silver in an attempt to keep the price artificially low in order to keep the appeal of the dollar and other fiat currencies high. Financial analyst Max Keiser is calling on people to crash JP Morgan by buying silver...in this way making its price go up leaving JP Morgan with a huge short position to cover. To find out more about this initiative Helen Skopis spoke to Max Keiser and asked the following questions:
1) Why should people want to crash JP Morgan?
2) You are comparing JP Morgan to a terrorist organization?
3) What does a short position in silver mean?
4) Credit rating agency Standard & Poors has warned that Greece faces a further downgrade following the proposed new bailout regime in Europe... Why? Why now?
5) The head of the IMF Dominique Strauss Kahn is coming to Athens tomorrow (December 6) . What can be expected from his visit?
6) The domino effect you stated would begin after Greece is occurring. Where and when will this stop?
7) There has been talk recently of issuing European Bonds. Will this help the Eurozone?
