Their lives and their future will end. We will not allow these infamies to be done in our name. Every one of us is ready to help, guide and protect in whatever way is possible. When they seek refuge, we will not close our doors but will give shelter and food ; we will not denounce them to the police.

Thank you for taking the time to read this important update on right wing pro-coup terrorism now taking place in Venezuela. I am a United States citizen living and working in Merida Venezuela reporting on what appears to be the face of US backed efforts to de-stabilise the democratically elected Venezuelan government.

09-06-2006 06:43UK Home Office minister Tony McNulty's wife Christine Gilbert is controversially in the news today [Friday 9 June 2006] over her appointment to head OFSTED, the English schools 'inspectorate' quango. There is more to that appointment than just the Blairing cronyism. Christine Gilbert has been ‘chief executive’ in the East London Borough of Tower Hamlets Council. She has really messed things up for the people in that role. Christine needed salvaging for two reasons - one her wrongful role in promoting the Crossrail hole Bill attacks on the East End and her utterly incompetent or pro-corruption role in allowing the massive votes theft, fraud and abuses at the recent Coucnil elections held 4 May 2006 and at the general election held on 5 May 2005.

08-06-2006 21:54I was a firm believer in the war on terror, its aims, resolution never to bow down and eventually its ultimate success. This article would have reflected that, but while trawling through reams and reams of official government releases in order to write said article, I found evidence that starting in 1979 the American Government, headed up then by President Carter had begun a policy of funding Islamic terrorists to fight the soviets in Afghanistan. As well as extensive evidence that this policy was not only expanded in Afghanistan but also other groups opposing communism were funded in other countries. Eventually my own views were changed and this article will now show, that since 1979 successive American Presidents selectively or intentionally ignorant attitude toward unintended consequences of foreign policy decisions, has figured largely in the scourge of Islamic extremist terrorism the world now faces.

08-06-2006 09:25From ignorant or intentional mistreatment, to deliberate and systematic abuse of domestic pets and circus animals, cosmetic testing and badger baiting to some of the world’s greatest species: polar bears, seals, and even dogs and cats in China being skinned alive for their coats. Animal cruelty is a worldwide epidemic of shocking proportion. Luckily, the few are trying to save our animals for the next generation.
