INTERPOL in Colombia 3 + 3 = 8

27-05-2008 13:09

I have just finished reading INTERPOL's report on the computers that the government of Colombia says it found in an encampment of the FARC-EP on March 1. Reading the report I am once again fascinated with what experts can do with computers. But I am shocked that the world's best known detective agency cannot add three plus three.

4th June, 12 Noon, The Level, Brighton

Southfields Get Total Oil Out of Burma Protest

26-05-2008 19:39

Southfields Total Sation
Six protesters demonstrated at the Southfields Total Station, 262 Wimbledon Park Road on 21st May 2008. They were protesting against the French oil and gas giant's 500 million dollar a year funding for the brutal military regime in Burma. The money just goes to the evil junta not the poor people of Burma. The regime has allocated just 5 million dollars to cyclone relief, whilst it earned 2 billion dollars in gas exports in 2007.

"The air we breathe & the lines we cut" : FARC name Alfonso Cano is new leader.

25-05-2008 18:11

Timoleón Jiménez has appeared in a video passed to TeleSUR lamenting the passing of the founder of FARC whose death began to be reported yesterday. He died of a heart attack.

They have also named the new leader of the paramilitary organisation. Thus the new name and personality who we may consider dealing with all the baggage of FARC. Its guerilla army, its hostages, its loyal population, its political hinterland who eschew armed struggle yet are persecuted, its role in the coca production and supply of cocaine from Colombia which is not already in the hands of the 3 cartels linked to the far right terrorists in the Colombian state. The new leader Guillermo León Sánez, alias Alfonso Cano is thus one of the people who decides how much rainforest should be cleared to grow coca instead of making oxygen. Coz as all you know well, coca only grows on the edge of rainforest for a maximum of two years, being a hungry little plant it needs nutrients when farmed which can only come from burning off jungle.

A short profile of this new man who shall play a small role in what goes up your nose. Be it oxygen or a 17% pure alkaloid.

Iran Mosque Blast Plotters Admit Israeli, US Links

Or, if they were from any other country, "TERRORISTS" ...

This comes only days after Iran announced it had uncovered one of the CIA rings operating in Iran. For more, see Seymour Hersh's excellent (and virtually ignored) work on the Covert Operations being carried out in Iran by the US from Afghanistan.
