Phys.org: Lockheed Martin pursues compact fusion reactor concept
If we detect here a race underway for the future of energy, pitting on the one hand the independent entrepreneur whose invention would favor a decentralized production model (with little need for distribution and metering of energy), versus on the other the corporate establishment whose R&D would favor a more centralized production and distribution model (though perhaps not quite as centralized as the current grid), so do we detect something of an arms race following similar tendencies...

The contest here will be decidedly asymmetric: 19th Century Wild West vs. 21st Century Star Wars. The question remains, however; can strength in numbers of the former defeat strength in watts of the latter?
Some loose ends from last month: on Sept. 18 "Puffy Cheeks" Poroshenko came to Washington, seeking lethal aid for Kiev's beleaguered fight against the breakaway republics of Novorossiya in the East. In spite of a receptive audience in the typically Pollyannish U.S. Congress, however, Poroshenko went away empty handed, admitting that "Blankets and night-vision goggles are important, but one cannot win the war with blankets..."
RT: Obama declines to give Ukraine 'lethal aid' despite Poroshenko's plea

Wayne Madsen Report: Iranian police stopping and questioning Arab drivers
WMR learned while in Tehran that Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL) fighters have crossed into Iran from Iraqi Kurdistan along the mutual border that has long been known as a smuggling route. It is not known how many ISIL fighters have entered Iran but the news apparently triggered an alert by the Iranian government to police to be on the lookout for Arab-looking drivers.
Traveling on the road between Darvestan and Fasa in southern Iran on October 2, this editor noticed a number of police cars pulling aside drivers. When I asked my escorts the reason for the traffic stops, it was explained that the drivers had to prove that they were "Iranian" to the police...
ISIL has already attacked an Iranian border post on the border with Iraq, near the Iranian town of Qasr-e-Shirin. As many as 11 Iranian border guards were killed in the attack. There have also been reports of ISIL attacks bear the Iranian town of Urmia and Khoi in Iran's West Azerbaijan province. The ISIL units reportedly received support from Mossad operatives based in Azerbaijan, a country on Iran's northern border having close ties to Israel...

Information Clearing House: US Bio-warfare Laboratories In West Africa Are The Origins Of The Ebola Epidemic.
Now that Ebola is in the U.S., with an acknowledged handful of cases, we have been presented with a media fear-mongering blitz similar to the swine-flu scare of 2009 - a scare which in the end amounted to relatively nought. As none of the acknowledged Ebola cases contracted in the U.S. need have happened had proper protocols been followed, protocols which we anticipate will become more stringent as the "epidemic" progresses, we are inclined to say that this too shall blow over - in the U.S. (West Africa is certainly another matter). We are nevertheless obliged to acknowledge the possibility that the mainstream media, in seeming to over-hype a story, is in fact suppressing it. We must cite then the fear-monger site numero uno...
