In the case of the plane sightings at Brize Norton, it now seems extremely probable that there has so far only been one plane. One of the reasons for confusion is that we sometimes get information from several different sources. As regards Brize Norton, we received information from an eye witness, but also from people elsewhere in the UK who have been tracking planes via U.S. sources such as www.flytecomm.com.

Il tentativo di mascherare l’inarrestabile fenomeno politico-sociale delle migrazioni come un problema di ordine pubblico da contrastare, con la crescente militarizzazione delle frontiere e provvedimenti di polizia, ha prodotto soltanto l’istituzione di nuove forme di apartheid.
03-08-2006 11:57Less than three months after its formation, the Olmert-Peretz government succeeded in hurling Israel into a two-front war whose goals are unrealistic and whose results are unforeseeable..

03-08-2006 04:50The victims are subject to change. But the Perpetrators have been at it for a century. Something MUST be done about the U.S.-UK Oil Cartel (Exxon-Mobil-Chevron---BP & Shell) for the sake of peace, social and political justice, and to deal with doomsday Global Warming.
