Here’s some news we think you should be aware of for today, April 19, 2012: U.S. Soldiers Of 82nd Airborne Posed With Afghan Corpses, Ford Plans Plant In East China, India Succeeded Where North Korea Failed And Only China Noticed, and U.S. Attempting To Expand Scope Of Drone Attacks In Yemen. Read about it below!
U.S. Soldiers Of 82nd Airborne Posed With Afghan Corpses
The 2010 incident of U.S. soldiers posing with mangled Afghan corpses is being called an isolated event. This is a lie being pushed by the U.S. government, NATO, and the mainstream media. We know this isn’t an isolated event, because we need only remember the Kill Team in Afghanistan, U.S. Marines urinating on Taliban bodies in Afghanistan, and other acts of barbarism by U.S. troops to know that this is a pattern.
How many other incidences like this have happened that we never heard about and were never exposed?
Ford Plans Plant In East China
For all the talk about American jobs, and the company being saved by taxpayers, Ford has chosen to reward China with jobs and economic growth.
SHANGHAI (AP) — Ford Motor Co. plans to build a $760 million auto assembly plant in the eastern Chinese city of Hangzhou, part of a doubling of its production capacity in the world’s biggest vehicle market as it strives to catch up with rivals.
The investment in the factory with joint-venture partner Changan Ford Mazda Automobile Limited will add annual capacity of 250,000 vehicles when it begins operations in early 2015, the company said Thursday.

India Succeeded Where North Korea Failed And Only China Noticed
India performed a test of a long-range nuclear-capable missile that has the ability to reach Beijing and other Chinese cities. Of course other nations barely batted an eye at India, despite the hissy fit they had over North Korea’s failed launch last week.
China, while not openly condemning the launch, did express disapproval while also trying to downplay the development. According to Al Jazeera, China’s state-run TV said the missile “does not pose a threat in reality” and the People’s Daily newspaper said “India should not overestimate its strength.”

India shouldn’t be trying to flex too hard, because China could easily slaughter them with a marching army alone.
U.S. Attempting To Expand Scope Of Drone Attacks In Yemen
Basically, the CIA is seeking authorization to hit unintended targets and justify killing innocent people in drone attacks.
The CIA is seeking authority to expand its covert drone campaign in Yemen by launching strikes against terrorism suspects even when it does not know the identities of those who could be killed, U.S. officials said.
Securing permission to use these “signature strikes” would allow the agency to hit targets based solely on intelligence indicating patterns of suspicious behavior, such as imagery showing militants gathering at known al-Qaeda compounds or unloading explosives.

What exactly constitutes “suspicious behavior” anyway?
