Zargawi was most likely killed some time ago as has been widely reported. The stupid theme of the "bad guys" continues. Understand your "1984 world." Orwell now more than ever, jamie

Back in April we reported that West Papuans were planning a mass boycott of the Indonesian parliamentary elections. On the day of the elections West Papuans burnt down polling stations, sank a boat carrying ballot papers and almost unanimously refused to vote.
