  1. Reblogged this on Ban Tear Gas Now! and commented:
    One more example of why we should stop trusting military suppliers to tell us what’s safe. With even MORE direct evidence of soldiers being harmed (since foreign civilians seem to go unnoticed), will the public finally step up and demand accountability from our leaders? What will it take to get the public off their butts and on the phones with their representatives? Or better yet, when will more citizens start actively protesting government offices for an end to irresponsible military spending?

  2. Fake bomb detector man jailed for decade

    Conman James McCormick, who is estimated to have made £50 million from selling fake bomb detectors, was jailed for 10 years today.

    Mr McCormick was found guilty at the Old Bailey last week of three counts of fraud after jurors heard he had flogged off “novelty golf-ball detectors.”

    He sold three different but all equally useless models to Iraq, Belgium and even the United Nations for use in Lebanon.
