Iran’s president said Saturday the country would consider assisting U.S. efforts to fend off violent Sunni militants threatening Iraq’s heartland, as Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel ordered an aircraft carrier to the Persian Gulf to prepare for “military options.”

(Gee, go out of town a few days and come back and the Obama love affair among the growing minority continues. Newest Gallup poll - only 39% say he "can manage government effectively"...only 34% say he "has a clear plan for solving the country’s problems".)
Those numbers should be even lower...in a logical world.
A woman from Orlando has been left speaking in different foreign accents following a severe migraine.

C......, 64, who runs a hairdressing salon in Orlando, has been diagnosed with foreign accent syndrome.

Her accent is regularly mistaken for being South African, French or Italian and she has even suffered racism.

She developed the condition after suffering a severe migraine in 2011 and has other stroke-like symptoms such as right-side weakness.

Professor Sophie Galt from UCF, Florida said there have been a handful of cases over the past 50 or 60 years and more are being reported now because experts know more about the syndrome.

Not what we need now: Rising oil and gas prices

4 Comments Shares 57 Tweets Stumble Email More +
Stocks suffered their worst week in two months as the breakout of sectarian violence in Iraq upends the relative calm investors enjoyed in recent weeks. The rise in energy prices were the center of attention, and for good reason: Low inflation has been the linchpin holding this stimulus-addled market and economy together.

Without ultra-low interest rates and ongoing bond buying from the Federal Reserve and other major central banks, the wheels would've come off by now. As it is, the real economy is fragile. First-quarter GDP growth in the U.S. is set to be revised down to a -2.1 percent contraction according to Macroeconomic Advisors. The consumer is showing signs of fatigue with retail sales soft, credit card use surging and the savings rate dropping hard.

So, it's no help to see gasoline spot-market prices surging to levels not seen since 2013 now just 10 percent from the all-time highs hit in 2011 and 2012.

Already, U.S. consumer price inflation has returned to the Federal Reserve's 2 percent annual target. And while policymakers have said they would tolerate a bit higher-than-normal rate for a time, a sustained rise in prices would not only damage household purchasing power but would call into question the continuation of the Fed's near-zero-percent interest rate policy.

That, in turn, would jeopardize the cheap debt-to-stocks conveyer belt that's bolstering equity prices, as I explained in a recent article.

Much depends on the situation on the ground in Iraq. So far, the extreme Sunni Muslim group known as Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (abbreviated ISIS or ISIL, depending on translation) hasn't yet jeopardized major Iraqi oil infrastructure. But that could change soon.

The large Baiji oil refinery, with a 310,000-barrel-per-day capacity, is reportedly still under government control. The Kurds have control of the Kirkuk oil fields. And that large Iraq-Turkey oil pipeline (ITP) that runs north has been shut for maintenance since March.

But should ISIS take Baiji (protected by Iraqi special forces at the moment) or destroy or damage the ITP, oil and gasoline prices could shoot much higher. The disputed region is home to another large oil refinery, the Daura facility, with capacity of 300,000 barrels per day. In April, Iraq produced 3.34 million barrels per day vs. a sustainable production capacity of 3.65 million barrels according to Deutsche Bank.

It's worth remembering that a similar geopolitically driven rise in energy prices in 2011, caused by the Arab Spring uprising in Libya and elsewhere, resulted in a spike in inflation that forced the Fed to end its "QE2" bond-buying program on schedule. The pullback in stimulus ushered in a tumultuous summer of trading that year, ending in the most violent correction of the bull market thus far during that August.

Much will depend on the Iraqi government's success (with the help of Iranian Shiite forces and perhaps U.S. air power) in putting down ISIS. Also watch for hints that Fed is becoming worried about inflation at its upcoming policy announcement and press conference next week.

U.S. successfully launches drone from submerged submarine
By Mariano Castillo, CNN
updated 9:32 AM EST, Fri December 6, 2013

(CNN)-- The evolution of drones continues.
The U.S. Naval Research Laboratory on Thursday announced it successfully launched a drone from a submerged submarine.
The technology is being pursued to give sailors additional intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance abilities.
Some of the funding for the project came from SwampWorks, a program of the Office of Naval Research that focuses on innovative and cutting-edge technologies.
"Developing disruptive technologies and quickly getting them into the hands of our sailors is what our SwampWorks program is all about," said Craig A. Hughes, acting director of innovation at Office of Naval Research. "This demonstration really underpins ONR's dedication and ability to address emerging fleet priorities."

The drone, or unmanned aerial system, was launched from a torpedo tube on the USS Providence, the Navy said in a news release.
The drone itself was inside a launch vehicle called the Sea Robin that fit inside the torpedo tube.
Once launched, the Sea Robin made its way to the ocean surface and, upon command, the drone itself launched from there, the Navy said.
The drone, powered with electric fuel cells, then flew for hours, streaming live video back to Navy officials.
Unlike other projects that can take decades to produce results, the technology to launch a drone from a submerged submarine took just six years from concept to demonstration, the Navy said.
"This six-year effort represents the best in collaboration of a Navy laboratory and industry to produce a technology that meets the needs of the special operations community," said Warren Schultz, program developer and manager at the Naval Research Laboratory. "The creativity and resourcefulness brought to this project by a unique team of scientists and engineers represents an unprecedented paradigm shift in UAV (unmanned aerial vehicle) propulsion and launch systems."

I have news, when you dipsticks keep claiming we invades Iraq to spread Democracy, you should understand that democracy is for all. Not just the Shiites.
The current government in Iraq is run by a hardliner Shiite & the Sunnis are excluded.
You & your war monger party want us to fight in Iraq s to help the Shiites rule?
Obama is 100% correct here. If the Iraq government wants to exclude, then they are on their own in this brewing civil war.
The same will happen in Afghanistan if the Taliban does not participate in that country's government.
This kinda reminds ya of some Imbeciles that post here...that whine about Independent type voters-EH DUHHHH A Vey.....(inbreed, demented, moron lunaTic LOSERS.)

Bomb Kills 11 After Afghanistan Vote as Taliban Punish Voters

A roadside bomb killed 11 people in Afghanistan, including four election workers, and the Taliban cut off the fingers of nearly a dozen people to punish them for voting in this weekend's presidential runoff, officials said Sunday.

The Taliban had warned people not to participate in Saturday's vote. The two candidates, former Foreign Minister Abdullah Abdullah and former Finance Minister Ashraf Ghani Ahmadzai, have both vowed to improve ties with the West and sign a long-delayed security pact allowing nearly 10,000 U.S. troops to remain in the country for two more years...
