Caterkiller demolish 300,000 homes in Zimbabwe

23-08-2005 13:21

Destroying homes

Many people are familiar with Israel’s use of Caterpillar armoured bulldozers in Palestine and the US military’s use of militarised bulldozers in Iraq, Afghanistan, and Bosnia. Now news has emerged that Caterpillar machines are responsible for the destruction of over 300,000 indigenous homes in Zimbabwe, during Operation Murambatsvina, (literally “clean out the trash” in Shona), in which impoverished supporters of the opposition Movement for Democratic Change were driven out of urban settlements into strenuously guarded rural camps.

IAN BLAIR (hopefully soon to be ex Police Commissioner), COVERUP COP

20-08-2005 15:34

Jean Charles de Menezes and Jean's heartbroken family deserve justice and the truth. We all deserve a police force that protect us. Jean's cousin Alessandro Pereira is right, he wants those who break the law including the 'police' murderers who illegally killed Jean to be prosecuted.

"Shoot to kill", no questions asked, only happens police states, and is dangerous to the rule of law and puts the lives of other innocents like Jean Charles de Menezes at risk.
The police are supposed to uphold the law and tell the truth
Instead Blair, you allowed the murder of innocent Jean Charles de Menezes. Then you told lies about what happened, but worse you lied about Jean and smeared his good reputation.

190 to destroy and 200 to re-build Afghanistan?

18-08-2005 22:24

Disagreement with candidates
So he calls remarkable progress sending 190 militants off to wage war against all the free and democratic people in Afghanistan? I think that is a remarkable statement. I mean what would he have said if there weren't any problems and he had to send troops just to rebuild after the Taliban regime was overthrown in 2002. Fantastic?
