SOTT Focus: An Open Letter To The People Of France

That wasn't on the menu!

(placard: general strike)

Citizens of France,

How would you feel if:

You had to borrow 5 or 10 times your annual salary to be able to have a home?

You had to purchase expensive private medical insurance to be sure of having any medial care?

Every hospital denied all medical care to those without private medical insurance?

There was no social safety net, no unemployment insurance for yourself, your family, and your children?

You had to work 40 to 60 hours per week with only one week of holiday per year - and even that only after you have worked for a year or two?

China furious at Dalai Lama plan to name successor

China has accused Tibet's spiritual leader, the Dalai Lama, of violating the religious rituals and historical conventions of Tibetan Buddhism by suggesting he might appoint a successor before his death instead of relying on reincarnation.

Beijing's latest broadside against the Dalai Lama is a sign of heightening tensions between the central government and the man Tibetans see as a god-king. While reincarnation sounds like an esoteric concept to those of other belief systems, it is a deeply political issue in the isolated Himalayan enclave.

However hard a truth is to bear, it has to be brought to light; for otherwise it will smolder in the dark and the lies that hid it will become ever more pernicious; the truth about war and the war's of the last 100 years, a hard truth that needs to see the light of day. Today's world is dominated by the most pernicious lies that history has ever known, those relating to warfare, for in truth war is the slaughter of the innocent for the benefit of the evil.

Experts: No evidence of Iranian nuclear weapons program

Despite President Bush's claims that Iran is pursuing nuclear weapons that could trigger "World War III," experts in and out of government say there's no conclusive evidence that Tehran has an active nuclear-weapons program.

Even his own administration appears divided about the immediacy of the threat. While Bush and Vice President Dick Cheney speak of an Iranian weapons program as a fact, Bush's point man on Iran, Undersecretary of State Nicholas Burns, has attempted to ratchet down the rhetoric.

Chessboard killer Pichushkin appeals against life sentence

Alexander Pichushkin, one of the most prolific serial killers in Russia's history, who was found guilty of 48 murders, has filed an appeal against his life sentence, his lawyer said Friday.

The 33-year-old former supermarket worker has been nicknamed Russia's "chessboard killer" for his habit of marking off his victims on the squares of a chessboard, which number 64. He claims to have taken the lives of at least 60 people, but investigators have yet to find evidence for the other alleged killings.

"Pichushkin considers the verdict too harsh and unfair," Alexander Karyagin said adding that he filed the appeal at the request of his client.

Comment: Amazing but not surprising statement to hear from a psychopath.
