Truce "began to unravel in November, when Israeli soldiers
entered Gaza to destroy a tunnel that the army said [>] could
have been used in a cross-border raid."

And did unravel in December: "Israeli troops shot and killed
three Hamas gunmen [= three Gazan troops] as they were plant-
ing explosives [= mines] on the Gaza border" to prevent any
more Israeli cross-border raids.

least 400 delegates of 25 countries including the DPRK and
international organizations extended full support to the
just cause of the Korean people.
`
A special statement on Korea adopted at the congress said
that the prevailing situation on the Korean Peninsula is
arousing great concern of the international community.
`
It continued:
`
The U.S. is still pursuing its hostile policy towards the
DPRK and massively beefing up its naval and air forces in
and around south Korea after reorganizing its forces in
south Korea into rapid deployment forces for realizing its
wild ambition for aggression to dominate the DPRK [>] and
its neighboring countries of Asia under the signboard of
the 'strategic flexibility.'"

This newsstory brings fresh news about rotten Nobel Peace [=
War] laureates.
`
But first let's refresh our memory...
`
From OREO 12 22 08 ASIA | JAPAN:
`
Japan's longest-serving prime minister --a [duh] Noble Peace
laureate-- asked the U.S. in 1965 to deploy nuclear weapons
against China if war broke out between the Asian rivals, ac-
cording to newly declassified government files"
`
"new details...reveal a more [duh] complicated picture behind
his strong public stance against nuclear weapons"
`
Asian rivals?
`
JAPAN LAUNCHED WW II WHEN IT ATTACKED CHINA IN 1937
`
`
And now the latest complicated Nobel Peace [= War] laureate:
`
"South African Nobel peace laureate Desmond Tutu accused his
country, the continent's [>] main power, of betraying its
legacy of struggling against [>] apartheid by failing to take
strong action against [black leader] Mugabe.
`
The archbishop told the BBC in an interview that military
force against Mugabe's government should not be ruled out.
`
'He must be asked to step down, and if he refuses I really
believe that we [= South Africa] have to invoke this [>] new
doctrine of responsibility to protect,' Tutu told BBC radio."
`
`
This new doctrine is at least as old as Hitler's protecting
the Germans in Austria, in Czechoslovakia, and in Poland!
`
GERMANY LAUNCHED THE EUROPEAN PART OF WW II WHEN IT ATTACKED
POLAND IN 1939

FLDS spokesman:

"The department has made many allegations that it's never
been able to back up, in an effort to justify their barbaric

`
__EICHMANN'S CAN'T LEARN ; IT'S VITAL TO UNDERSTAND THIS__
`
`
Hannah Arendt wrote in her book *Eichmann in Jerusalem: A
Report on the Banality Of Evil*:
`
"The trouble with Eichmann was precisely that so many were
like him, and that the many were neither perverted nor
sadistic, that they were, and still are, terribly and ter-
rifyingly normal.
`
"From the viewpoint of our legal institutions and of our
moral standards of judgement, this normality was much more
terrifying than all the atrocities put together, for it
implied...that this new type of criminal, who is in actual
fact *hostis generis humani* [an enemy of mankind], commits
his crimes under circumstances that make it well-nigh im-
possible for him to know or to feel that he is doing wrong."

Editorial | The Printing Press Cure
`
December 22, 2008
`
"Flooding the economy with freshly printed money [>] may
prevent a self-reinforcing downward spiral.  But it [>]
may cause trouble long after the present danger has passed.
`
One reason is that it could cause inflation later.  In a
worst-case scenario, inflation, or the fear of inflation,
could dissuade foreign investors...from buying and holding
dollars.
`
That, in turn, could provoke a disorderly decline in the
currency, sending prices and interest rates [>] sharply
higher."
