"Thick black smoke billowed from a fire Wednesday in Vice President Dick Cheney's suite of offices in the historic Eisenhower Executive Office Building next to the White House.
Cheney's office was damaged by smoke and water from fire hoses, White House spokesman Scott Stanzel said. The vice president was not in the building at the time; he was in the West Wing of the White House with President Bush.
More than 1,000 people who work in the building were evacuated. The fire broke out on the second floor of the building around about 9:15 a.m. and was under control within a half hour, District of Columbia fire department spokesman Alan Etter said."
Russian Military Analysts are further reporting that the ongoing, and deadly, power struggle occurring in the United States is eerily reminiscent of the Nazi German power struggles of last century which led to the outbreak of World War II, and which, also, were not reported to the citizens of the German Empire like they are not being reported to the Americans today.
The reasons behind these latest attacks between the US Military and the US War Leaders, these reports state, is the growing crisis in the Western Banking system as it nears total collapse, and which in the past 24 hours has seen the European Central Bank inject an unprecedented $500 billion into its banking system while the US Federal Reserve System has injected a further $20 billion into the American banking system.
These staggering amounts are in addition to the $54 billion injected into the Western banking system by the United Kingdom and the United States last week, but which has failed to stem the tide of imminent bank failures in Europe and North America.
And, as if the imminent failure of the Western banking system wasn’t enough to shock the World this past week, the United Nations has issued a dire report that brings into sharp focus the prospect of mass death due to starvation, and as we can read as reported by the International Herald Tribune News Service in their report titled, "World food stocks dwindling rapidly, UN warns", and which says:
"In an "unforeseen and unprecedented" shift, the world food supply is dwindling rapidly and food prices are soaring to historic levels, the top food and agriculture official of the United Nations warned Monday.
The changes created "a very serious risk that fewer people will be able to get food," particularly in the developing world, said Jacques Diouf, head of the UN Food and Agriculture Organization.
The agency's food price index rose by more than 40 percent this year, compared with 9 percent the year before - a rate that was already unacceptable, he said. New figures show that the total cost of foodstuffs imported by the neediest countries rose 25 percent, to $107 million, in the last year.
At the same time, reserves of cereals are severely depleted, FAO records show. World wheat stores declined 11 percent this year, to the lowest level since 1980. That corresponds to 12 weeks of the world's total consumption - much less than the average of 18 weeks consumption in storage during the period 2000-2005. There are only 8 weeks of corn left, down from 11 weeks in the earlier period.
Prices of wheat and oilseeds are at record highs, Diouf said Monday. Wheat prices have risen by $130 per ton, or 52 percent, since a year ago. U.S. wheat futures broke $10 a bushel for the first time Monday, the agricultural equivalent of $100 a barrel oil."
Russian economists are quick to point out, that with the prospect of the Western banking system collapsing, coupled with the shocking rise of oil prices, and now the prospect of Global food shortages, the United States is left with little leverage to protect itself other than its vast military might, and, which many believe is leading the US towards an inevitable conflict with the East in its quest for survival.
To the American people, however, the imminent dangers they are facing are being kept from them as they are consumed by the trivial populist media trash that is being fed to them on an hourly basis, but which does nothing to help them in preparing for the catastrophic events that are soon to overtake them.
And, as the US War Leaders accelerate their battles between their various factions, the World today stands closer to the abyss than in any other time since the outbreak of World War II.

WASHINGTON (CNN) -- Firefighters quickly doused a two-alarm fire Wednesday in the historic Eisenhower Executive Office Building, which houses the vice president's ceremonial offices and the majority of the White House staff.
Firefighting crews used axes to break windows on the third floor of the ornate building shortly after the two-alarm blaze broke out after 9 a.m.
The fire started near the vice presidential offices, CNN's Kathleen Koch reported.
At its peak, heavy black smoke streamed from the building.
Within an hour, smoke had stopped pouring from the building and was replaced by a fine mist of water, which the firefighters used to ventilate the building until they could get fans set up.
Vice President Dick Cheney's working offices are in the West Wing of the White House, where he was at the time of the fire.
The White House is adjacent to the Eisenhower Executive Office Building.
There were no reports of injuries from the blaze, which appeared to be confined to the third floor, said D.C. Fire Department spokesman Alan Etter. Etter said the blaze appeared to have started in an electrical closet or a telephone bank.
"We have this under control," he said, adding that the building was evacuated.
The Secret Service and a number of other agencies were on scene, as were 15 fire trucks.
The building houses nearly all of the White House staff, including White House speechwriters, White House communications, senior staff from the Office of Management and Budget and the National Security Council.
It was constructed between 1871 and 1888 and has been undergoing renovations. Also called the Old Executive Office Building, the massive structure was originally built for the State, War and Navy Departments and is an example of the French Second Empire style of architecture, according to a government Web site.
The building is the site of a number of events, including ceremonial signings, news conferences and photo opportunities.
It was designed by Alfred Mullett, the supervising architect of the Treasury Department, and its exterior is composed of granite, slate and cast iron.

Hoot, Ashanti, san. I hope people (Whoever does the rot), here, had a merry christmas. Businesses complaining, of course, that the turn out (Pigs in the troughs) wasn't as high as expected (What with the internet and all).
NAZI Germany all over again but then Toynbee did mention that 'history repeats' itself. But who 'writes' history anyway? ;) Of course it repeats itself!
New Orleans teachers', over 3000 without a job, as that test scenario for New World Order way of doing business, ought to wake up but I doubt they will.
Teachers seem to go blithly along thinking they know something. The real teachers of human kind, of course, don't call themselves teachers.
The rot of it all should begin to really peak round about '09 when we take the gloves off and bloody more than some noses. R2-45 looking better, and better, all the time...
Global War. Something to look forward too, eh? As the elites send their toy soldiers here and there to do the mop up operations. I may fall but I'll take a lot of them with me... Guarantee it! Hahahahaha...
Nice to see you round the old digs, Ashanti san, and bless you for what you do there in the ZA. Seen the puke butt Wizard anywhere? He's probably hiding with the Vizier eating stolen children.
Yup, AFRICOM. Americans don't even know it exists much less care! Night of the living dead.
