23-02-2005 14:16

The so called Cottenham residents association (CRA) held a public meeting yesterday evening, 22 Feb 2005 in the local college hall. The turn out was impressive, a few hundred people gathered specially for the event. Despite what the name of the association would suggest its sole purpose is to handle a single 'issue' as they prefer to call it ('problem' would sound wrong to the BBC journalists that were present): the nearby traveler community of Smithy Fen.

cultural inquisition

23-02-2005 13:12

Now that culture has replace religion, and the intellectual worshipers are gathering for the stability of the master scheme, eager to plunge the world on a nuclear holocaust. Reviewing the latest loom of the American administration towards the European Union, filled with overtones of closeness’ hammering the treacherous Iran and reaching a consensus over Syria, uncovers a back door, quietly urging European nations to procure military hardware. This flipside to disaster is slowly aiming at bypassing Damascus and hitting Tehran, enveloping once more this planet on another occupation on the name of freedom. This cultural inquisition applied to anyone who does not reflect as the intellectual worshipers demand entails a similar defensive response. Moreover, it is by this same ethnicity that the answer subsists; Venezuela should not wait until the rotten apple falls from the tree, it should act now and remove it, eat it rather than let it go to waste.
This unavoidable departure from the dollar dictum is gathering strength, Venezuela should not hang around it must act now while there still time. The manoeuvres of the cultural fanatics are not to be underestimated. We must remember that a wounded Empire can be more dangerous than a healthy one. It is annihilation of the Bolivarian revolution that is plot and disappearance of most of its followers.
Bringing back sounds of Argentinean dictatorships combine with the brutality of Pinochet; are the innovative proceed of the enemies of the state. Venezuelans must be conscious as in this moment of triumph it is when the enemy is most likely to strike, Venezuelans need extra attention at the foreign events they will signal the next association before the fatal blow. Move away now from the dollar dictum is a preventive action, not an aggressive one and most nations will understand it nowadays, postponing this issue at this instance will only reinforce the confidence of those who wish to eliminate president Chavez. In addition, gives them supplementary reasons to carry on with their deeds.
If you see a truck coming to hit you why linger until it whacks you, better move on and bank yourself.
