Mogabe lost the elections

Zimbabwe opposition leader Morgan Tsvangirai was the "clear victor" of last month's poll, a top US envoy says. Independent Zimbabwean monitors say Mr Tsvangirai gained 49% of the vote - just short of the threshold for outright victory - but more than President Mugabe.

Zimbabwe has no place for Mugabe. He still thinks he is in the 70's and 80's. Yes he fought for Zimbabwe's independence, but times have changed now, Britain is no longer the enemy, now it is a saviour aiding our flagile African governments.
It is much easier to make a new baby than to ressurect a dead child, Mugabe is dead and he should go!

Opinion and gay rights

The third time was the charm for a Neuqua Valley High School student who wants to express his sentiments on homosexuality by wearing a "Be Happy, Not Gay" T-shirt to class. Neuqua sophomore Alex Nuxoll had twice filed for an injunction that would suspend "the school's policy that allows speech in favor of homosexual conduct, but bans speech critical of homosexual conduct," according to his attorneys at the Alliance Defense Fund.

And twice courts had denied that request. But on Wednesday the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 7th Circuit reversed the lower courts' rulings against Nuxoll, saying the district court must order Neuqua to suspend its ban on the shirt while the civil rights lawsuit filed by Nuxoll and Neuqua grad Heidi Zamecnik proceeds.

I think we have the right to express our opinion about any topic, but we must tolerate others and respect their right to exist in a different way.

Cocaine’s route

US drugs officials are concerned about growing quantities of cocaine being trafficked through Africa to Europe, as amounts of the stimulant reaching the United States tapers off. Trafficking in 2007 had shifted to cocaine coming out of Colombia, through Venezuela in increasing amounts, and by both maritime routes and by air, coming toward Europe.

According to the United Nations, Europe is the second largest illicit market in the world after the United States. Spain is the major port of entry for South American cocaine, but large quantities also transport through Portugal. US figures showed that some 58,000 kilogrammes (128,000 pounds) of cocaine arrived in Europe from Venezuela last year -- compared to almost 29,000 (64,000 pounds) in 2000 -- while 3,600 kilogrammes (8,000 pounds) came from Colombia, well down from over 64,000 (141,000 pounds) eight years ago.

Hugo Chavez: “Raul Castro is the new menace to the revolution”

Hugo Chavez, the President of Venezuela, said last Sunday that Cuban and Venezuelan communist regimes are under their greatest menace in decades.

For Chavez, Raul Castro, brother of Fidel and actual president of Cuba, is the present weapon of the United States against Cuba and Venezuela.

Chavez told this because recent “open policies” of Raul in several topics (like trade, foreign relations and private property) are in contradiction with the Fidel way.

If the situation continues, Cuba and Venezuela governments will enter in a new era of tensions that can hurt the Chavez’s terrorist project in Latin America.

Hugo Chavez is spreading terrorist groups in Peru

Hugo Chavez has been accused of using Venezuela's oil riches to meddle in Colombia, Argentina, Bolivia and Nicaragua. Now, Peru's president says the Venezuelan leader may be doing it in Peru by funding militants and anti-poverty centers that preach populist revolution.

In recent weeks, Peruvian police have arrested nine people the government alleges are militants bankrolled by Venezuela. And the head of a Congressional investigatory committee accused Venezuela of supplying funds to outreach centers he says agitate against the government. President Alan Garcia supports the ongoing investigation into the centers. Venezuela and allies Bolivia and Ecuador want to destabilize Peru so that country adheres to their type of thinking, so that Peru fails.

Chavez is spreading terrorist groups around Latin America, searching to destroy the democratic system. If Chavez wins more power in the region, he will move these terrorist groups inside United States, to cause sabotage and political violence.
