06-02-2007 14:48Yunus Yosfiah, former Indonesian government minister and commander of Kopassus, the elite government sanctioned hit squad functioning as part of the Indonesian military, has been formally identified by an eyewitness as the person who initiated the cold-blooded murder of five Australian journalists in East Timor in 1975.

[Then] Captain Yunus Yosfiah, issued the murderous order, “don’t think, just shoot”, before he commenced firing on the unarmed Australian journalists!

06-02-2007 10:49In an article regarding the Republicans blocking a motion to debate the war in Iraq the BBC comes up with this worthy piece of news. "Since the US-led invasion in 2003, more than 3,000 US troops and tens of thousands of Iraqis have been killed".
