Venezuela i krig med Kuba

Folket i Venezuela tog till gatorna i en fredlig massdemonstration med början den 2 februari. De har mötts med våld från regimtrogna brunskjortor, “colectivos” på spanska.

Mel Zelaya calls 70% of Hondurans “coupsters”

Sunday’s presidential election was more than a regular presidential election in Honduras. Since deposed president Manuel “Mel” Zelaya’s wife, Xiomara Castro de Zelaya, was running for election, it was for all intents and purposes a referendum on his deposing on June 28th, 2009. So how did it go? In a three way race, she apparently

¿Quien paga la campaña de Xiomara Castro de Zelaya?

Este domingo 24 habrá elecciones presidenciales en Honduras. Un candidata que puede ganar según las encuestas es la esposa de Manuel Zelaya, Xiomara Castro.

Det sydamerikanska landet har sedan i lördags genomlevt en period av plundringar av affärer beordrade av regimen.

There is a New York Times article today about the Spratly Islands, a group of coral atolls in the South China Sea that are contested by several nations: The Philippines, China, Taiwan, Viet Nam, Brunei, and Malaysia. However, when looking at the area in Google Earth today, I discovered something else: blatant examples of manipulated
