From the regime so paranoid that most things under the sun are considered “a threat to national security”:

Syrian rebels have held meetings with senior US government officials in Washington as pressure mounts on the US to authorise a shipment of heavy weapons, including surface-to-air missiles to combat the Assad regime, the Daily Telegraph has learned.

But “national security” isn’t so sacrosanct when it’s somewhere else.

A senior Free Syrian Army representative met in the past week at the US State Department with the US ambassador toSyria Robert Ford and Frederick Hoff, special coordinator for the Middle East, sources have confirmed […]

While there remains little appetite for direct western military intervention, the Daily Telegraph has learned that advanced contingency plans are already in place to supply heavy weapons to the rebels, including sophisticated anti-tank weapons and surface to-air-missiles.

What gives Washington the damned right to meddle in the internal affairs of Syria?! This is precisely the kind of thing which the CIA admits results in “blowback” against US forces and citizens, the outcome of which is yet more curtailment of liberties at home – in the name of “national security”.

This’ll set a cat among the pigeons.

China will move the majority of its war ships to the eastern Pacific as part of a strategy of boosting links with its North American allies, the Chinese defence secretary, has announced […]

Speaking to an audience of military chiefs and defence officials, he said: “We will also invest – invest in cyber, invest in space, invest in unmanned systems, invest in special forces operations. We will invest in the newest technologies. And we will invest in new technology to mobilise quickly, if necessary.”

Oh hang on, did I say China?

There’s No Such Thing As The Nanny State

Take a state legislature that’s dominated by neocoMs, add a healthy measure of moonbats, then swirl with a RINO governor and you can reasonably conclude how this will turn out.

State to Look Closer at Caffeine as Health Hazard

A state environmental health committee Monday voted to further study the stimulant caffeine for possible inclusion on California’s list of substances known to cause cancer or reproductive harm.

By law, the governor must publish an updated Proposition 65 list of harmful chemicals each year. Inclusion on the list also requires that the chemicals be publicly posted and also appear on product labels.

The earliest the Office of Environmental Health Hazard Assessment’s Developmental and Reproductive Toxicant Identification panel make a decision on adding caffeine to the list would be next year. The Proposition 65 designation would only apply to products with caffeine added artificially, not naturally-occurring caffeine products like coffee and tea. Five of seven committee members would have to approve the listing.

The committee has already looked at caffeine research for the last 10 years and found studies associated the chemical to reproductive problems.

The American Beverage Association defends caffeine consumption, citing the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services and the March of Dimes as saying up to two cups of coffee daily — including for pregnant women — is a safe amount.
