The United Nations global climate summit has spurred confrontation both inside and outside of the conference center in Copenhagen, Denmark.
Outside, hundreds of protesters have been arrested by Danish police since the beginning of the summit. Thousands of activists convened in Denmark to march to the Bella Centre, the location of the climate summit, but on the way the group encountered the heavily armed Danish police.
There have been reports of the use of pepper spray and police dogs in controlling the crowds.
Both protesters and the police have been accused of being out of control. Danish authorities have said that the activists were breaking windows and setting cars on fire, while activists have accused the police of being unnecessarily heavy handed. A police spokesman said that protesters who were arrested are being held in a temporary holding location and that they will be released in a few hours.
Confrontation at a climate summit? Whaaaaaat?
The global elites have made great strides to realizing their full agenda, including:
*** The creation and control of central banks around the world — including our own Federal Reserve — which manipulates money supplies, causes runaway inflation, and keeps the wealth in the hands of their chosen few while the middle class is destroyed;
*** Control of the United Nations, which uses its power to destroy U.S. sovereignty through claims on our lands, our tax dollars and radical environmental restrictions aimed at crippling our industries and trade;
*** Their North American Union scheme to economically and politically merge America with Canada and Mexico through illegal immigration and “trilateral agreements” to further erode our national sovereignty for the benefit of multinational corporations;
*** Instigating and fomenting conflicts around the world, stretching our national defenses to the breaking point, while demanding military action be followed with “nation building” to rebuild what our government just destroyed.
Sad news in Afghanistan…
Taliban militants wearing suicide vests and police uniforms stormed a guest house used by U.N. staff in the heart of the Afghan capital early Wednesday, killing 12 people — including six U.N. staff. It was the biggest in a series of attacks intended to undermine next month’s presidential runoff election.
One of the six U.N. dead was an American, the U.S. Embassy said. A Taliban spokesman claimed responsibility for the early morning assaults, which also included rocket attacks at the presidential palace and the city’s main luxury hotel.
The chief of the United Nations mission in Afghanistan, Kai Eide, said the attack “will not deter the U.N. from continuing all its work” in the country.
The attack on the guest house sent people running and screaming outside, with some jumping out upper-story windows to escape a fire that broke out. One American man said he held off the assailants with a Kalashnikov rifle until guests were able to escape.
One rocket struck the “outer limit” of the presidential palace but caused no casualties, presidential spokesman Humayun Hamidzada said. Two more rockets slammed into the grounds of the Serena Hotel, which is favored by many foreigners.
One failed to explode but filled the hotel lobby with smoke, forcing guests and employees to flee to the basement, according to an Afghan witness who asked that his name not be used for security reasons.
President Hamid Karzai condemned the attack as “an inhuman act” and called on the army and police to strengthen security around all international institutions.
Taliban spokesman Zabiullah Mujahid claimed responsibility for the attacks in a telephone call to The Associated Press, saying three militants with suicide vests, grenades and machine guns carried out the guest house assault.
