Call for actions! Don't let Israel celebrate 60 years of occupation

Colombia parades FARC's top female "Karina" - Regional Temperature rising.

19-05-2008 21:01

Nelly Avila Moreno alias "Karina" [a.k.a. 'Janet Mosquera Renteria', 'Rocío Arias' aged 47, 1.60 metres tall and 85kg weight], has been one of the most wanted women on this planet this century. In a different sort of most wanted woman on the planet way to Kate Moss [a.ka. as Kate, aged 34, height 5'6" - 5'7", weight 105lbs]. And the difference is not merely one of metric versus imperial measurements. Whatever you can say about Kate you're not going to suggest she led brigade 47 of the FARC operating in western Colombia credited with narcotraffic operations in Samaná and Pensilvania reliant on plantations of 3,500 hectares. Coz you know you'd get a writ for libel for that. Nor was Kate ever worth 650 million US dollars in reward bounty.

Freedom Rider: America Brings Hell to Somalia

18-05-2008 20:31

Somali Refugees
The U.S. "war on terror" is in fact a war on international law and
civilization, a catch-all category of assaults on the weak. Under the
anti-terror banner, Washington grinds Somalia into the sand, through hi-tech
weaponry and the deployment of Ethiopian surrogates. No more rationale is
offered for murderous aggression in the Horn of Africa than the presence of
people the U.S. calls "Islamists" - a label designed to excuse any and all
American crimes against Muslims. "More than 600,000 Somalis have fled from
their homes and at least 6,000 are dead." The savaging of Somalia is
nonpartisan - Democrats are as bloody-handed as Republicans. "It takes
foolish optimism to think that the willing accomplices to crime will change
their ways when Bush is gone."

The delegates to the Church of Scotland's general assembly gathered on 15 May were urged to support a resolution that calls on Britain and the United States to take no further action that could lead to an invasion of Iran.

"We will strongly urge the British government to do everything in its power to discourage the American government from undertaking any form of military strike against Iran. And if the Americans ignore that advice, then Britain must make clear its strong opposition for such a move" said Morag Mylne, convenor of the Church and Society Council of the Scottish Presbyterian church.

American Car-bombs Are Not Terrorism

17-05-2008 17:37

The US terror war is a plan of organized deception that is focused more upon the American people and our democratic allies than it is upon any enemy nation. The cycle of attacks and retribution is part of a psy-ops campaign of fear that is meant to frighten the people into complying with government demands. Everywhere, the American message is the same: “Join us in our crimes against humanity, or perish in our glorious shock and awe.”
