The collapsing US military & economic empire is making Washington & NATO even more dangerous. US could not beat the Taliban but thinks it can take on China-Russia-Iran...a sign of psychopathology for sure. We must all do more to help stop this western corporate arrogance that puts the future generations lives in despair. @BruceKGagnon

Obama is promising $100 million (as he goes after Social Security and Medicare) to launch a mission that is aimed at helping scientists capture asteroids. This mission is really about testing the technologies to fly to an asteroid and prepare to mine them.  The taxpayers are paying for this research and development phase and when it becomes technically possible to carry out the missions the process will be privatized.  Thus the public finances the aerospace industry start-up costs and gets very little in return.

I've noticed Al Jazeera is increasingly more conservative by touting the US line on issues.  During the past couple of years I've cut back on using their news reports as they are becoming captives of the corporate agenda.  The slant on this video is just one illustration.
