Bush's "icy smile" enraged Iraq shoe-thrower
`
Thu Feb 19, 2009 7:44am EST
`
"He was talking and at the same time smiling icily at the
([puppet] Iraqi) prime minister.  He said to the [puppet]
prime minister that he was going to have dinner with him.

"Suddenly I saw no one in the room but Bush.  I felt the
blood of innocents was running under his feet while he was

smiling coldly as if he had come to write off Iraq with a
farewell meal.

"After  more than a million Iraqis killed,  after all the
economic and social destruction...I felt that this person
`
IS THE KILLER OF THE PEOPLE,
`
THE PRIME MURDERER.
`
I was enraged and threw my shoes at him."

Q&A - Supply routes for Western troops in Afghanistan
`
Thu Feb 19, 2009 11:42am GMT
`
"WHAT IS THE U.S. BASE USED FOR?
`
Manas...is used as a stopover for ferrying supplies and
troops into Afghanistan."
`
Such a *reply* ignores The Superpower's war of aggression
against the Emirate of Afghanistan; and ignores its occu-
pation of the Afghan land; and ignores its sociocide of
everything the Afghan people value:
`
INDEPENDENCE
`
That's why it's a reply --inherently insufficient-- and
not an answer.

Rights court says UK held Qaeda suspects illegally
`
Thu Feb 19, 2009 12:18pm GMT
`
"The 2001 anti-terrorism act allowed Britain to detain foreig-
ners without trial if they were [duh] suspected of terrorist
links
`
but there was [>] insufficient evidence to prosecute them.
`
The House of Lords ruled in December 2004 that the detentions
were discriminatory and disproportionate.
`
The eight suspects still in prison or in Broadmoor at the time
were released when the law was repealed in March 2005
`
but were then detained again [!] in immigration custody."
