Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
great comment, and images.

watching un peacekeepers, apparently earning $60-80 pd., firing rubber bullets at the starving haitians as they tried to batter down the gates of the presidential palace was horrible....that's not what they're for, thought i naively.

those mudcookie-eating folks hate the un, they accuse the un of ripping off their country.

then, watching the english, french and american police protecting the olympic flame, it occurred to me these might as well be paid by china, who owns the us economy, and has europe lining up to swap our birthrights for plastic geegaw landfiller too.

the same horror as watching italian police wailing on old ladies, just out to block an incinerator being opened next door to their families, and this under a lefty government.

same old...

new world order, no fries with that.
