Italy to increase Troop numbers on the street.

05-09-2008 11:50

We all know that the Italian state put 3,000 troops including paratroopers on the streets of Milan, Rome and Naples earlier this year. We were unanimous in our condemnation. Pat yourself on the back. But now we get to see what they did. Figures available today confirm that the Italian army has participated in 97 arrests of which 66 people were migrants. Just in case you're bad at soft maths - that indicates that two thirds of military arrests of civilians have been migrants & the arrest rate is about one to every thirty soldiers. In addition to those fascination factoids there have been 263 reports made and 242 car thefts dealt with.

Obviously Italy needs more troops on the street. & minister of the interior Roberto Maroni has confirmed on his webpage and in an interview that Italy is going to get a surge.

ban books. She went on to a criminal record

Obama's Choice of Biden: "The Devil Made Me Do It."

29-08-2008 21:36

A Black Agenda Radio commentary by Glen Ford

Flip Wilson's comedic character "Geraldine" knew who to blame for her own indiscretions: "The Devil made me do it." The same goes for Barack Obama who, his
supporters are quick to explain, is blameless for his political sins and betrayals. The "white folks" made him do it, or "the polls" made him do it - but never the candidate, himself. However, it will be hard to find a devil to blame for Obama's choice of Sen. Joe Biden - "as much a war monger as George Bush" - as his running mate. The fact is, Obama "was never a progressive - he just briefly played one to win points in an Illinois
Democratic primary election six years ago." Let the Devil be.
