If the NYT calls someone "morally treasonous and spectacularly dishonourable” that means another false flag operation is probably in progress and dead people could soon hit the front page under large banner texts.

EU VAT law could kill THOUSANDS of online businesses

VAT in Luxembourg generally is 15% (which is considered "unfair" by neighbors who can barely squeak by ripping off 20% of any transaction from the jobless hoi polloi), and will be upped to 17% in January (because the governement wants to keep the overpaid civil servant cancer happy more than it wants to reduce unemployment), so I don't see why VAT is a particular factor for Luxembourg.

Pretty interesting as the stated aim of money printing (aiding in eradicating state debt and make well-connected mandarins rich, among others) was exactly to fool workers into believing that they paycheck was going up, while in actuality it was not.

Re: Bah!

> It makes you vonder how zey ever annexed ze Sudetenland.

That was easy because it used to belong to the Wilhemine Reich and the Sudeten, freshly empowered, were behaving less than adequately to ethnic germans, which were forbidden to partake in the "self-determination of people" for some reason or other.

> SA had occupied the union houses.

In a very concrete sense, SA *was* the union.

Re: Sony should stop whining

Downvote me if you like, but making a movie-joke about his assassination was JUST PLAIN STUPID AND IRRESPONSIBLE.

I am ambivalent about this.

I have heard about Hillary gloating on comera* about the frank assassination of the Lybian head of state, hounded by all the proper propaganda and JDAM delivery gear that liberal interventionists with neocon boosters can bring to bear. Yet nothing happened. Indeed, Madame is actually, possibly running for the presidential office.

Can anyone furnish citation needed about those "1997 Jerusalem bombings" apparently financed by Iran. It is western S.O.P. to accuse Iran of being behind any and all nefarious action, even 9/11. Are we talking about these: 1997 Mahane Yehuda Market Bombings? These, however, were Hamas, which are of The Other Muslim Sect (as opposed to Hezbollah), so I'm not entirely sure.

That would be FAIL on so many levels that one would think it was not 2014 but somewhen medieval, with assembler and everything.

Then again, I hear the US is currently getting a hard-on about their torture practices, so medieval sounds about right.

Was the Death Star REALLY taken out by a "rebel" in a single X-Wing?

Some very experienced engineers,architects and pilots have proven/shown that it is simply impossible to fly a plane into a building and leave a hole such as was made. The wings would have collapsed, the tail would have fallen of, An aluminium bodied aircraft cannot physically fly through concrete and steel, it's just structually impossible.

These the same guys who find faces on Mars?

Must have been tough distributing all those plane pieces over lower Manhattan. It's also weird that a couple of planes went missing with passengers on board.
