Behind the Barricades, There Is Happiness

Richard Moore describes himself as “just a guy who wanted to help.”

This is somehow funny coming from a man whom the Dalai Lama refers to as “my hero.”

At the death of U.S. diplomat Richard Holbrooke, there is no end to the praise. Obama, CNN and Wesley Clarke are out of all proportions. Tiny fact like these are left aside:

1) Holbrooke gave the green light for the Kwangju massacre on South Korean students 1980.

2) He undermined non-violent Dr. Rugova in Kosovo by helping the murky US -defined terrorists of the Kosovo Liberation Army to take over.

September 10, 2008

Lund, Sweden





September 11, 2001 is known by everyone as a historical "turning point", as an icon of our time. In its wake, we got at least three major wars in which several thousand times more people have been killed, wounded and tortured in primitive revenge - Afghanistan, Iraq and the war on terror.
