Mission Statement – True North is not for everyone

Editor’s Notes

True North is catching its breath

Aside from our standard gems, we’ve only got two on deck for you today. The reason is that while our attack in depth (on ignorance, disinformation, and silence) has been enormously successful, we’ve got to stabilize our front while our supply lines catch up. — 144 words.

Iran and the geopolitics
of accounts receivable

On a Sunday, the 15 members of the United Nations Security Council, including Russia, unanimously passed Resolution 1747, which provides for the imposition of sanctions against Iran in response to its nuclear development program.

Russia KGB solution on Iran: create
a problem and be part of the solution

"This is very easy to understand," said President Vladimir Putin last year, explaining his idea of an energy policy. "Just think back to childhood when you go into the street with a candy in your hand and another kid says, 'Give it to me.' You clutch your little sweaty fist tight around it and answer, 'What do I get in return?'" So why, when it comes to the Iranian nuclear file, has Putin finally opened his little sweaty fist, signing on — with no apparent compensation — to additional United Nations sanctions against the Islamic Republic while calling for a halt to Russia's construction of the nuclear reactor at Bushehr? — 1.055 words.

Rest assured, True North is not spam
and will not harm your computer

We have been getting reports that True North is being marked as Spam or Bulk mail, and other reports that subscribers are saying that they get an error when clicking on our links that says this website may be harmful to your computer and personal information. For the Spam and Bulk mail classification, more information will come in a future issue once we have compiled an extensive list of email software and webmail types. As for the errors that you get when clicking on the links, just bypass them for now by clicking on the yes, continue, or allow buttons inside the error message. This problem stems from the fact that we do not have a www address yet, as there is not sufficient financial backing for the True North project. The underlying reason why your email program is telling you this is that many of the identity theft cases that start online go through these types of links, requesting personal information such as credit cards, account names and passwords, etc… True North does not request any information on its website. If you need to send in information, you should send it to our email address truenorthnews@gmail.com. We only require email addresses, and if you want to, you could also send in your name. We do not ask for any other information at all.

If you have any further questions or concerns about accessing any of the newsletter's features or links, contact myself, True North's Webmaster Carl Hall chall2k5@gmail.com and I will be happy to respond as soon as possible. If asking a specific question about your email software, please include what operating system you use (Windows, Linux, or Mac), and what email software you use (Outlook, Outlook Express, Thunderbird, or Mail on the Mac), this will help me solve your problem as quickly and efficiently as possible.

Take it easy,
