Meanwhile, Fukushima is worse now than it was 2 years ago and the poison is creeping along quietly into the food chain around the world.

Even people working in the NSA have to eat food. Even the elite of the world must drink water, milk and wine. This contaminant knows no barriers and crosses all thresholds.

Only a fool fights in a burning house. The 1.5 billion dollars being spent for the surveillance project would be better spent handling Fukushima's problem first.

Yet I see vast bank vaults & gold bars in a blue-green color of radiation. Roaches are climbing across them.
All Hail the new king of Earth

It is... Spying... on other countries !


T hey're trying to colonise the countries anyway so it's basicly spying on the colonies. This is why the people should step up and wake up !

Type Mountbatten Wilson Coup into a search engine. One change of government, maybe a birthrate change and a predominance of Muslims, or a far right party elected? They will only need to take one look at the data that they have collected on you over the years and your 'ordinary guy' theory may suddenly make you an enemy of the state overnight. Sympathisers are labelled, and rounded up, locked in compounds, and left there, your family is threatened etc. Imagine what Adolf Hitler would have achieved if he had access to personal data on this level, on a global scale.

Pretty much every submarine cable in the region (and from Asia) goes through the Suez Canal, or rather over land for that part, and uses to points of entry on each coast.

In Alexandria those are just some 40 km apart and seems ideal for interception.

Gerry God is not dead. God is not also religion. The world is going crazy due to humanities actions. Its called karma. Only fools think this means God is not.

There is no such thing as National Security, it is a myth. The objective is not to keep you secure, it is to keep the wealth of the elite secure. Governments do not care if you live or die, you have no value to them. What they will do, however, is ask, or tell you, to fight their wars to protect their interests, or to gain access to new resources that they can exploit. This is the way that the world has operated for centuries. A dead individual has no freedom, and never will have. Am I so important?, yes I am, I am more important than anyone else on this planet. I am me, this is my life, and I bow to no one.
