Where is the Press in Colombian War?

07-03-2002 01:53

As I have said all along. It is the state which murders and lies with the support of the corporate mass media and even certain so-called "alternative media" who jump on the Bush-Blair propaganda campaign. If you know Colombian history, better still, if you know Latin American political history, you will also know that communism is not a big country somewhere in Eastern Europe or U.S. corporations in China, but a serious alternative to dying capitalism in Latin America. VIVA FARC Y EL MOVIMIENTO BOLIVARIANO!

Bin Laden bin gone to Iraq?

06-03-2002 22:00

Well, that sounds most convenient. Tortured in Afghanistan, the tortured Bin Laden chef, almost begging to take that plane to Cuba, says that the stern quail-crunching Bin Laden has almost cerainly found solace and support in Iraq.

Being an ex-public schoolboy, Adeel Akhtar would probably have less difficulty to get his story published than the Guanatamo Camp prisoners.
