With the news of the last week, some of which I have linked to in this piece, it is amazing when one takes a step back and realizes that we truly are witnessing a world in turmoil. This is how it begins with a lack of U.S. leadership as a vacuum creates opportunity for radicals to create problems worldwide, and of course the biggest black hole in the world is in Washington, D.C. where the word “leadership” is a joke. Each story is linked back to the original source where published in full for your reading or translated using Google Translate.
Shocking unemployment for the first quarter of 2012-1.120.097 people officially out of work-Protothema
From the news paper Libere-Algerie:
The city of Ouacifs, chief town of Daira located about thirty kilometers from Tizi Ouzou, has lived, last night, a wild night with a deluge of fire that fell on the barracks of the Mobile Brigade Police judicial (BMPJ), communal police and National Gendarmerie. It is truly a major offensive. Witnesses said there were about sixty heavily armed terrorists who have surrounded and besieged the city of Ouacifs from 20h to trigger a coordinated attack against all security camps located in downtown. This raid with heavy weaponry, supported by RPG fire and hebheb (mortar craft), lasted over two hours. The city was plunged into total darkness, indicating that this attack was carefully planned by the attackers. To 22h, the PNA has stepped in to push back the terrorists. At 23h, at a time when we went to press, no conclusions had yet been established and the firing continued all over the city, very late in the evening.
