Sultan among 100 dead in Nigeria air crash

Ninety-nine people, including the head of Nigeria's Muslims, died yesterday when a plane crashed shortly after takeoff from the capital, Abuja.

ADC Airlines said 106 people were on board the flight to the northern city of Sokoto when it ploughed into a field about a mile from the runway, and that seven people had survived.

"The plane crash ... led to the death of our beloved Sultan ... among about 100 people," the governor of Sokoto state, Attahiru Bafarawa, told reporters.

He declared six days of mourning for Sultan Ibrahim Muhammadu Maccido, who leads an estimated 70 million Muslims. Sultan Maccido, who was also the most senior traditional ruler of northern Nigeria, was instrumental in quelling religious bloodshed in the central state of Plateau in 2004.

Comment: What's that? A Muslim leader who was instrumental in quelling religious bloodshed?? We can't have that. Someone should take that guy out. Oh yes, someone already did it seems.


'Stability First': Newspeak for rape of Iraq

"Stay the course also means don't leave before the job is done. And that's ... we're going to get the job done in Iraq. And it's important that we do get the job done in Iraq." - George W Bush, October 11
Iraq is not simply a US electoral issue. It's a human tragedy of biblical proportions. Hence the urge at this point to situate the tragedy in a historical context.

US Terror

I used to have a little sympathy for those people who were still sitting on the fence over the justness of the Iraq invasion. I understood that the US government and mainstream media talking heads made an effort to imbue their official claims with a semblance of logic and reason, and that the American public could, to some extent, be forgiven for sanctioning illegal war and suffering. They were, after all being deceived.

Not anymore.


At Least Get The Kids Out

North Korea explodes a N-bomb. Well done chaps. And North Korea is best buddies with Iran. Very well done, this here nuke stuff. The next war with Israel can now be nuclear. And the deluded Jews of Israel can write completely wrong political analyses till they are nuked for breakfast. They still don't comprehend my message: The rulers of Israel hate Jews. It appears that a country run by "men" who hate Jews and prefer globalism far more is simply too much for the little minds of the Jews to work out. So before Israel goes for good...at least get the kids out.


Upon Red Rivers of Genocide

Daily upon the rivers that birthed civilization can the flow of crimson colored blood be seen journeying over liquid roadways through the land of Mesopotamia, its accumulated and growing volume the result of scattered bodies, bullet hole riddled men and bloated humans, all silent witnesses to the devastation that has cursed the Iraqi people.

Tainted with the flow of human wickedness, the Tigris and Euphrates spread their polluted waters over the entire culture of Iraq, like sewers of human waste contaminating land, water and air, their toxins of evil and torture and murder and suffering spreading a noxious fog over cities and towns, its cocktail of death and destruction infecting the fabric of society, the very foundation of Iraq cracked and shattered by the spillage of human energy, that crimson liquid granting life.


Civil War in Iraq: The Salvador Option and US/UK Policy

As the catastrophe in Iraq continues to unfold, an unresolved question remains on the role of Bush, Blair, and the US/UK military. To what extent were they passively incompetent in facilitating the decline into civil war, and to what extent were they actively pursuing policies that promoted that outcome?

Nigeria: Israeli charged with espionage

Israeli, Irishman, Romanian charged with spying on Nigeria's Defense Ministry, face 14 years in prison

Six people, including men from Ireland, Israel and Romania, were charged Tuesday with illegally obtaining classified defense documents.

Court papers allege the men worked with three Nigerian Defense Ministry officials to obtain information "related to a protected place."

The information was to be passed on to the defense attache at the Russian Embassy in Nigeria, according to the court papers. Calls to the embassy Tuesday afternoon went unanswered.

The three foreigners and three Nigerians were brought to court in the Nigerian capital, Abuja, under tight security.

Each pleaded innocent. Judge Binta Murtala-Nyarko set the next hearing for Nov. 21 before returning the suspects to prison.

Comment: They were probably all Israelis using false passports.

Prominent Russian reporter shot to death

A journalist who chronicled Russian military abuses against civilians in Chechnya, garnering awards and accolades from around the world, was found shot to death Saturday in her apartment building. Prosecutors suspect her killing could be connected to her investigative reporting.

Anna Politkovskaya, 48, was found dead in an elevator in the building in central Moscow, police, prosecutors and a colleague said.

Prosecutors have opened a murder investigation, said Svetlana Petrenko, spokeswoman for the Moscow prosecutor's office. Investigators suspect the killing could be linked to her work, Vyacheslav Rosinsky, Moscow's first deputy prosecutor, said on state-run Rossiya television.

Rosinsky said a pistol and bullets were found at the site of the crime. The RIA-Novosti news agency, citing police officials, reported that Politkovskaya was shot twice, the second time in the head.

The ITAR-Tass news agency reported that work was under way on a composite sketch of the attacker based on footage recorded by a security camera at the building. The assailant, believed to have acted alone, wore black.
