Schmitt

I’m reading a wonderful book (Return to the Moon), an essay by Harrison H. Schmitt (former astronaut, the last man on the Moon with Apollo 17 mission); this is a citation from this book – words to be remembered:

Whenever and however a Return to the Moon occurs, one thing is certain: that return will be historically comparable to the movement of our species out of Africa about 150,000 years ago. Further, if led by an entity representing the democracies of the Earth, a Return to the Moon to stay will be politically comparable to the first permanent settlement of North America by European immigrants.

You know, we have to go back to the Moon. The sooner, the better. And Mr. Schmitt is the right man for tell us how this new frontier has to be tackled.

finacial markets

When it comes to discuss about the global economy crisis the question about finance always comes up: how can a nation put a stop to the economic power of a multinational financial entity?

This is a peculiar type of asymmetrical warfare; a state, no matter how big it is, can’t compete against a multinational subject of the financial battlefield. If a nation tries to enforce a harder regulation system on its markets finance cartels simply withdraw their money from that markets and the nation’s economy sink like a paper-made Titanic. If the market regulation are too lose, just like today, the finance operators simply do what they want and the nations’s economy is always at stake.

Another astronaut has gone away, Mr. Scott Carpenter last lift-off happened yesterday. Carpenter was the second american astronaut in orbit with the mission Aurora 7 in 1962.

It’s easy now to think about men in space, we have decades of successful missions in our collective memory. This is the time for private ventures in space like SpaceX or Virgin Galactic, with a good telescope we can see the ISS station every day.

For a curious matter of coincidence in the USA and Italy we can testify two different cases of political blackmail from right-wing oriented parties. These are non-related situations, there are no direct ties between American Republicans and Italian PdL.

ABU OMAR: IL CASO DELL'EX AGENTE CIA SPINA NEI RAPPORTI USA-ITALIA

Last Wednesday, September 11th, a former  CIA officer named Robert Seldon Lady (1) sent to the Italian President of the Republic, Mr. Giorgio Napolitano a formal request for legal pardon (2) for the consequences of an extraordinary rendition (3) operation held in Italy in the year 2003.

Mr. Lady, with more than twenty CIA agents and a number of Italian SISMI agents, was indicted  “in absentia” for the kidnapping of an Egyptian citizen, Mr. Hassan Mustafa Osama Nasr (usually called Abu Omar). Later he was sentenced with other american officers, still “in absentia”. It was a CIA operation, held with the active cooperation of elements of Italian secret services. Mr. Abu Omar (4) was taken away from Italy, detained, tortured and interrogated from CIA agents in Egypt who were looking for terrorist plots in Europe; the main idea was about him as a recruiter for an Al-Quaeda linked organization.

Present days Syria’s crisis is a good start to think about how Putin’s Russia look at the whole Middle East in short and middle terms (from 1 to 5 years). After the shake down of USSR in 1991 russian presence in the Middle East and in the Persian Gulf has been close to be wiped out. No political sphere of influence was viable for a nation in rubble, not to mention the overwhelming military power of the USA that was already on the brink to squash Saddam Hussein’s regime in Iraq.
