There, running down the left side of the page, are three covers, all the same, for the European, Asian, and Latin American editions of the October 2 issue.
Each has a dramatic shot of a Taliban fighter shouldering an RPG (rocket-propelled grenade). The cover headline is: "Losing Afghanistan," pointing to a devastating piece on our Afghan War by Ron Moreau, Sami Yousafzai, and Michael Hirsh, "The Rise of Jihadistan." which sports this subhead: "Five years after the Afghan invasion, the Taliban are fighting back hard, carving out a sanctuary where they--and Al Qaeda's leaders--can operate freely."
The one for Newsweek's American edition, no Taliban fighter. No RPG. Instead, a photo of an ash-blond woman with three young children dressed in white, one in her arms, and the headline: "My Life in Pictures." The woman turns out to be Annie Liebovitz, photographer of the stars."

"Chinese farmers have won a dispute over land rights which culminated in a bloody riot last month in the northern province of Hebei, state media says."
(But did anybody try to see if this is still so, they flood cities so they can build powerplants....)
"The Farmers in Shengyou village, northern Hebei province, were angry they had not been compensated for land proposed for a power plant's ash storage yard."
But Chinese are less afraid now...
THOUSANDS of Chinese farmers overturned buses, smashed cars and attacked policemen during a riot in a village in eastern China against chemical plants that they say are destroying their crops.
Villagers said that 3,000 police officers armed with electric batons and teargas descended on the village of Huaxi before dawn on Sunday to clear roadblocks that villagers had set up to stop deliveries to and from chemical plants built on land where rice and vegetable farms once stood." more on the Times Online

"Please help me. My name is Nina Kalankow and Vladimir is my father. He is missing somewhere in the Tunguska area and I have not heard from him in 11 days. He always keeps in touch with me, so I’m terrified something has happened to him.
If you read this blog and have any information about my father’s disappearance or whereabouts, please get in contact. He is 6′1, 51 years old with greying hair - and was venturing back into the Tunguska region on 14th September to continue his research on the phenomenon. If you know anything at all about his whereabouts, if there is anything at all you can tell me that will help in the search for him, please get in touch with me at email@example.com."
"It has also been suggested that the Tunguska explosion was the result of an experiment by Nikola Tesla at his Wardenclyffe Tower, performed during one of Robert Peary North Pole expeditions. It is claimed that Tesla sent a communication to Peary advising him to be on the alert for 'unusual auroral phenomena' encountered as he attempted to reach the North Pole. However, by the time of the Tunguska event most work at Wardenclyffe had already ended and the site was mostly abandoned. In addition, it is by no means apparent how the small energy input at Wardenclyffe could be responsible for such a large energy output elsewhere." Wikipedia
The Tesla connection is popular on the Internet, see Google-search.
This id a good one:
"Tesla's writings have many references to the use of his wireless power transmission technology as a directed energy weapon. These references are examined in their relationship to the Tunguska explosion of 1908 which may have been a test firing of Tesla's energy weapon."

They also control the World Bank and IMF and most of the world's Intelligence agencies. Their identity is secret but Rothschild is certainly one of them. The Bank of England was "nationalized" in 1946 but the power to create money remained in the same hands."

Nobel Prize winner Desmond Tutu has warned that South Africa is in danger of losing its moral direction.
He said it had failed to sustain the idealism that ended apartheid and warned of growing ethnic divisions.
Referring to South Africa's high murder rate and the rape of children as young as nine months, he said the African reverence for life had been lost. The retired Anglican archbishop opposes ex-Vice President Jacob Zuma becoming president due to his "moral failings". Mr Zuma's presidential aspirations received a major boost earlier this month after corruption charges were dropped against him. He was acquitted earlier his year on a rape charge.

"Cuban exiles in Miami do most of the writing and acting for TV Martí, which was moved here from Washington in 1996 after intense lobbying by exile leaders. On a recent episode of “Office of the Chief,” which TV Martí calls its most popular show, an actor playing Raúl Castro said he would mummify Fidel Castro when he died by wrapping him in the pages of a book by Karl Marx, then display him on Havana’s seaside boulevard.
The laugh track went wild.
For years, though, critics of the stations have called them overly blunt tools in what should be a nuanced campaign to promote democracy in Cuba.
“The really shrill, outrageous kind of stuff they broadcast has no credibility in Cuba,” said John Nichols, a communications professor at Pennsylvania State University who studies Radio and TV Martí."

Al Gore explains and warns for Global Warning with his (sometimes a bit to personal) film An Inconvenient Truth
"Carbon dioxide and other gases warm the surface of the planet naturally by trapping solar heat in the atmosphere. This is a good thing because it keeps our planet habitable. However, by burning fossil fuels such as coal, gas and oil and clearing forests we have dramatically increased the amount of carbon dioxide in the Earth’s atmosphere and temperatures are rising.
There is no doubt we can solve this problem. In fact, we have a moral obligation to do so. Small changes to your daily routine can add up to big differences in helping to stop global warming. The time to come together to solve this problem is now – TAKE ACTION "
"As vice president, Gore was a chief architect of the Kyoto Protocol, the historic accord on reducing carbon-dioxide emissions. But the Senate refused to ratify the treaty, calling the evidence "inconclusive." Now that the scientific consensus is irrefutable, Gore considers it "damned immoral" that the White House and Congress continue to block action on global warming. "This is an emergency of historic proportions," he says. "We are in a race against time. There is a brave and hearty band of about two percent of Washington officials who are working on this, but ninety-eight percent are in denial." Source: Rolling Stone : The Avenger
"The pathway Gore described began with "immediately freezing [carbon dioxide] emissions and then beginning sharp reductions." Reminiscent of the nuclear freeze of the '70s, Gore's proposed carbon freeze "has the virtue of being clear, simple, and easy to understand," he argued. "It can attract support across partisan lines as a logical starting point for the more difficult work that lies ahead." More on AlGore.org

The Maldives Royal Family have a critic website.
Among lots of other things a piece about this:
Cruel, inhuman and degrading treatment of women such as wives and domestic servants from Asian countries is an acute problem in wealthy Arab countries. Domestic violence or, more precisely, wife-beating is widespread in all Arab countries and other countries burdened by the yoke of Arab colonialism, such as the Maldives.
Whenever the issue is raised, detractors hasten to parrot out a litany of statistics of domestic violence here in the civilised world. The Western statistics are extensive because there are systems in place that make it easy for victims to seek legal redress. Few care to point out that in the West no one claims that wife-beating is a divine right of men over women.
It quotes a Friday sermon aired live on Qatar television on 27 August 2004:
The intelligent people in the [West] admit that a woman does not feel comfort and is not happy unless she's under a man who commands, forbids, controls, and leads. This is the nature of people according to Allah's creation. Allah has created woman, whether Muslim or infidel, so she is happy under a strong man who will protect her and lives with her. It is not surprising, then, that a French woman came before a judge in the land of false freedom and equality and said: "I don't want this husband." The judge asked her: "Why?" and she replied: "He didn't lead me, didn't oppress me, didn't castigate me, didn't talk to me violently, didn't say: Don’t do this, do that." The judge replied: "Don't [his actions] support those who call for equality between man and woman?" The infidel woman answered, "No, no, I don't want him to compete with me, I want a man who leads and rules me."

Britches was the name given by researchers to a stumptail macaque monkey who was born into a breeding colony at the University of California, Riverside in March 1985. He was removed from his mother at birth as part of a psychology experiment into maternal deprivation, and had his eyelids sewn shut as part of a three-year sight-deprivation study involving 24 infant monkeys.
Britches was removed from the laboratory, along with 700 other animals, when he was five weeks old during a raid on April 20, 1985 by the Animal Liberation Front (ALF). The ALF made a videotape of their raid and of Britches' condition when they found him. As a result of the publicity when the video was released by People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals and after condemnation of the experiments by scientists and the American Council of the Blind, eight of the 17 studies interrupted by the raid were not restarted, and the university stopped allowing baby monkey's eyes to be sewn shut, according to reports filed by the university with the government.Dr. Grant Mack, president of the American Council of the Blind, called the experiment "one of the most repugnant and ill-conceived boondoggles that I've heard about for a long time."

WASHINGTON, Sept. 21 — President Bush and three Republican senators said this afternoon that they had reached an agreement on legislation to clarify which interrogation techniques can be used against terror suspects and to establish trial procedures for those in military custody.
“We did our duty,” said Senator John W. Warner of Virginia, chairman of the Armed Services Committee, one of the three. He noted that the legislation would still need close study by both houses of Congress.
Mr. Warner and the other two rebellious Republicans, Senators John McCain of Arizona and Lindsey Graham of South Carolina, met at the White House with Stephen J. Hadley, the national security adviser, who stood behind Mr. Warner’s shoulder as the senator announced the agreement.
“It is good news and a good day for the American people,” Mr. Hadley said.

I don't live in Turkey, so I may say this:
The Armenian Genocide (Armenian: Հայոց Ցեղասպանություն, Turkish: Ermeni Soykırımı) — also known as the Armenian Holocaust, Great Calamity (Մեծ Եղեռն) or the Armenian Massacre — refers to the forced mass evacuation and related deaths of hundreds of thousands or over a million Armenians, during the government of the Young Turks from 1915 to 1917 in the Ottoman Empire. Some main aspects of the event are a matter of ongoing dispute among the academic community and between parts of the international community and Turkey. Although it is generally agreed that events comprising the Armenian Genocide did occur, the Turkish government and several international historians reject the label "genocide," and claim that the deaths among the Armenians were not a result of a state-sponsored plan of mass extermination, but of inter-ethnic strife, disease and famine during the turmoil of World War I.
Despite this disagreement, most Armenian, Russian, Western, and an increasing number of Turkish scholars term the massacres a genocide. For example, most Western sources point to the sheer scale of the death toll as evidence for a systematic, organized plan to eliminate the group. The event is also said to be the second-most studied case of genocide," and often draws comparison with the Holocaust and the Holodomor. To date 21 countries, as discussed below, have officially described it as genocide.

"These numbers belie the myth that police do not target and arrest minor marijuana offenders," said NORML Executive Director Allen St. Pierre, who noted that at current rates, a marijuana smoker is arrested every 40 seconds in America. "This effort is a tremendous waste of criminal justice resources that diverts law enforcement personnel away from focusing on serious and violent crime, including the war on terrorism."
Show me just what Mohammed brought that was new, and there you will find things only evil and inhuman, says Benedict XVI. See the 1910 Catholic Encyclopedia: "What is really good in Mohammedan ethics is either commonplace or borrowed from some other religions, whereas what is characteristic is nearly always imperfect or wicked."
Pope Benedict XVI hit out at Islam and its concept of Holy War during one of the last public appearances of his six-day visit to his Bavarian homeland.
The thinly-veiled attack on extremist Islam's justification for terrorism came in a complex theological lecture to staff and students at the University of Regensburg, where the former Joseph Ratzinger taught theology in the 1970s.
Using the words, "Jihad" and "Holy War" in his lecture, the pope quoted criticisms of the Prophet Mohammed by a 14th Century Byzantine Christian emperor, Manuel II.
"Show me just what Mohammed brought that was new, and there you will find things only evil and inhuman, such as his command to spread by the sword the faith he preached," Benedict quoted him as saying in a contemporary debate with a learned Persian.

The US State Department has said that it is investigating Israel's alleged abuse of cluster bombs in the recent conflict in Lebanon. No one expects the US to punish or penalise Israel. After all, the US itself has been using cluster bombs for decades.

In August 1996, a Greek Cypriot demonstrator, Anastasios (Tasos) Isaak, was beaten to death by the Turkish occupation forces, and Turkish thugs.
At about 16:00 hours, the Turkish Forces allowed the Turkish Cypriot demonstrators to enter the United Nations buffer zone armed with bats and iron bars. The Turkish Cypriot demonstrators, joined by the Turkish Cypriot Police, then proceeded to pursue the Greek Cypriots and mercilessly beat all those who they were able to catch. At the same time, there was shooting, including by Turkish Cypriot police, from behind the Turkish Forces cease-fire line towards the Greek Cypriot demonstrators.

Originally broadcast as a three-part mini-series on the BBC, "The Power of Nightmares" is a sprawling, intellectually ambitious documentary about the political phenomenon usually referred to in journalistic shorthand as the war on terror.

"The second case concerned Britches, a newborn stumptail macaque monkey. Ungainly, with large sticky-out ears, he was nevertheless beautiful. Like any other baby macaque, he would have had huge round eyes and would have spent the early months, even years of his life clinging to his mother. Neither of those things applied to Britches because immediately after birth at the University of California’s research centre at Riverside, Los Angeles, in 1985, he was removed from his mother and his eyelids were stitched together."

Movie proving George Bush Sr guilt in JFK assassination.
From Tom Flocco.com:
FBI Director J. Edgar Hoover wrote the memo referring to the Bush Sr. briefing; and on the night before Kennedy arrived in Dallas, Hoover met with others at the Dallas ranch of Texas oil baron and Dallas Cowboys owner Colin J. “Clint” Murchison, Jr., according to retired Army Brigadier General William Penn Jones—evidence meritorious enough to warrant a new probe since there is no statute of limitations involving murder of a sitting president, covered up by the Warren Commission. George H. W. Bush and Richard Nixon joined Hoover that night in Dallas at the Murchison gathering on November 21, 1963 before Kennedy arrived the next day, according to alleged Kennedy co-conspirator and spotter Frank Sturgis—victim of a covered-up poisoning death in October 1992 prior to the Bush-Clinton November election.

But also: Bush jr Killed JFK jr.
But Jack Ruby (killer of Oswald) knows it:
In the comments it said: "Ruby was forced by someone to kill Oswald, and thus silence him. That's all there is to it. Anybody who tells you he was just another lone nut like Oswald, is either stupid, or a disinformation agent."
Arabic TV channel Al-Jazeera has broadcast what it says is unseen footage of Osama Bin Laden meeting some of the 9/11 hijackers.
The channel said it showed al-Qaeda leaders "preparing for the attacks and practising their execution".
Please tell me how it is possible that the background behind the so-called terrorist shows a burning twin towers? The image on the left is definitely a picture of 9-11.

"Subcultures of conspiracy and misinformation. Terrorists recruit more effectively from populations whose information about the world is contaminated by falsehoods and corrupted by conspiracy theories. The distortions keep alive grievances and filter out facts that would challenge popular prejudices and self-serving propaganda." (With other words Shut Up, it's all the critics fault)
and further on:
"Establish and maintain international standards of accountability. States that have sovereign rights also have sovereign responsibilities, including the responsibility to combat terrorism" ( See Terrorstorm on who the terrorists are )

First they told all the world they are talking crap and suddenly President Bush has acknowledged the existence of secret CIA prisons and said 14 key terrorist suspects have now been sent to Guantanamo Bay, Cuba.
"Mr Bush said the CIA had used an "alternative set of procedures", agreed with the justice department, once suspects had stopped talking. ..but denied the use of torture." (just take a look at the pictures please...or see this site!)

On Thursday, July 17th sometime between 3 and 3:30pm, Dr. David Kelly started out on his usual afternoon walk. About 18 hours later, searchers found his body, left wrist slit, in a secluded lane on Harrowdown Hill. Kelly, the U.K.'s premier microbiologist, was in the center of a political maelstrom having been identified as the "leak" in information about the "dossier" Prime Minister Tony Blair had used to justify the war against Iraq.
While the Hutton inquiry appears set to declare Kelly's death a suicide and the national media are already treating it as a given, there are numerous red flags raised in the testimony and evidence at the inquiry itself.
British LibDem MP Norman Baker is now two months into a private, year-long investigation into the death of Dr David Kelly. In a debut TV appearance on the subject screened Sunday July 2 2006 - GMTV’s ‘The Sunday Programme’ - Mr Baker invited those with relevant information to contact him. He will be producing a report or book on his findings next year, but his stated aim is above all to arrive at the truth. Video on PrisonPlanet.
Did we know the Nazi's had plans to colonize South-America?
We know that after the war lots of high-ranking Germans went to South-America:
Josef Mengele and Martin Bormann (more here) lived in Hohenau in Paraguay until they died. Adolf Eichmann was abducted from Argentina to Israel and was hanged there (more on Wikipedia). And others are still on the loose, see here.
Read here about perόn and the nazi's. A very large site with lots of interesting links.
On June 6, 1947, Argentina's first lady Eva Peron left for a glittering tour of Europe.
The glamorous ex-actress was feted in Spain, kissed the ring of Pope Pius XII at the Vatican and hobnobbed with the rich-and-famous in the mountains of Switzerland.
Eva Peron, known as "Evita" by her adoring followers, was superficially on a trip to strengthen diplomatic, business and cultural ties between Argentina and important leaders of Europe.
But there was a parallel mission behind the high-profile trip, one that has contributed to a half century of violent extremism in Latin America.
According to records now emerging from Swiss archives and the investigations of Nazi hunters, an unpublicized side of Evita's world tour was coordinating the network for helping Nazis relocate in Argentina. More on Evita, Swiss & the Nazis
For more info read this book or see wikipedia about ODESSA (German: Organisation der ehemaligen SS-Angehörigen, "Organization of Former SS-Members") and one of its leaders Otto Skorzeny (see picture of this scarface).
Not all Nazi's get away with it all:
Argentina has deported a former Nazi to Chile, where he is wanted on charges of sexually abusing children. More here. More about Colonia Dignidad in Spanish but a good site. And on wikipedia.
The Washington Connection and Third World Fascism by Noam Chomsky and Edward S. Herman, South End Press, 1979, is also interesting stuff to read.
Even weirder is Nueva Germania ("New Germania"), a village in rural Paraguay. It was founded in 1888 in a remote jungle as a racially pure, utopian settlement of the Aryan race by Elisabeth Förster-Nietzsche (the sister of the philosopher Friedrich Nietzsche), and her husband, the anti-Semitic agitator Bernhard Förster. (wikipedia)
Traces can still be found.
It gets even weirder: Dick Cheney and Nueva Germania: "a Wagner-loving San Francisco composer who is mounting a determined crusade to rebuild the Aryan dream and has sought assistance from Vice President Dick Cheney.."
