Finland Searches for Collateral Compromise as IMF Becomes Latest Detractor

Sep 5, 2011 10:36 AM ET

Finland’s anti-bailout party, which calls itself “The Finns,” last month polled as the country’s most popular, according to broadcaster YLE.

The party saw its backing surge fourfold in the April election, making it parliament’s third- biggest.

The party’s leader Timo Soini has railed against the costs of funding bailouts and rejects Europe’s ambition of preventing a Greek default.

“The European Union is breaking its own rules and Finland shouldn’t have anything to do with it,” Soini said last week. "This is a disaster. Finland should stay outside and oppose these measures.”

Tear up Lisbon Treaty, urges ex-chancellor Lord Lawson

http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-politics-14789126

In his Times article, Lord Lawson, who was chancellor between 1983 and 1989, said: "It was clear from the start that the eurozone project would end in tears unless it was accompanied by full political union."

And he advises David Cameron that the time "has clearly come to say enough is enough," adding "the present mess is bad enough. We cannot afford to allow any continuation of the circumstances that led to the grotesque irresponsibility that produced it."

The notion that "more Europe" must always be promoted has to be explicitly abandoned, he says.

"This requires not merely a declaration to that effect, but its embodiment in a full-blown constitution that sets out the entrenched and unalterable competences and responsibilities of the member states of the Union - the very reverse of what is contained in the anti-constitutional Lisbon treaty.

Obama criticised for continuing civil rights 'violations' introduced by Bush

Monday 5 September 2011 18.02 BST

On becoming president in January 2009, Obama promised to close Guantánamo Bay within a year. He did order an end to waterboarding but Guantánamo remains open and almost all the rest of the Bush era anti-terrorism apparatus, from the Patriot Act through to increased surveillance is still in place.

THIS IS THE SUPERPOWER. DID YOU *REALLY* EXPECT ANYTHING ELSE?

DigiNotar SSL certificate hack amounts to cyberwar, says expert

Monday 5 September 2011 18.14 BST

http://www.guardian.co.uk/technology/20 ... k-cyberwar

The Dutch government says hackers who broke into a web security firm in the Netherlands last month issued hundreds of bogus security certificates that could be used on websites including the CIA and Israel's Mossad, as well as internet giants such as Google, Microsoft and Twitter.

More than 500 fake certificates, including some which could be used to send fake Windows updates to computers, and others which could be used when connecting to the CIA's site, were fraudulently issued in the hack, which occurred in July.

The Dutch government took the exceptional step of calling a press conference at 1.15am on Saturday morning to announce that it was revoking all trust in digital certificates issued by DigiNotar, which until then had been used for all online tax returns filed in the Netherlands.

Libyan Islamist says interim council should quite

BENGHAZI, Libya | Mon Sep 5, 2011 5:27pm EDT

http://www.reuters.com/article/2011/09/ ... 3A20110905

"The role of the executive committee is no longer required because they are remnants of the old regime. They should all resign, starting from the head of the pyramid all the way down," [Ismail al-]Salabi told Reuters in the eastern city.

He was referring to the National Transitional Council's de facto cabinet, which is headed by Mahmoud Jibril, who once headed Libya's state economic think-tank under Gaddafi.

The 40-member NTC is a disparate mix of former officials in the Gaddafi administration, businessmen, academics, lawyers and exiles.

THIS IS THE SUPERPOWER-WORLD.
