17-09-2008 13:51All those soothsayers of a common European militarist policy operating from within the institutions of EU governance, rather than the aliance of NATO or proper international action allowed by UN resolutions, should get a vindicated kick out of the news that Brussels has opened a military task force on "Somali pirates".
A short Q&A so you seem like you know enough to bluff conversation on this.
17-09-2008 11:59The asylum seekers were to be deported to Erbil in Northern Iraq. However,
when one of the asylum seekers punched and smashed a window of the plane,

17-09-2008 10:48The U.S. is risking "incalculable" consequences with its raids into Pakistan, the only Muslim nation with an atomic arsenal. Pakistan is the least hospital place for American troops, a nation where "Osama bin Laden is infinitely more popular than George Bush."

EveryOne Group: “The visit is a farce, because out of the 29 delegates 22 are Italian, including Euro MPs from far right parties, like Fiore and Romagnoli. More than an inspection, it will provide support for intolerant policies”.
