Pictures of chained-by-the-neck hostages should haunt moral supporters of Chavez & Sarkozy forever

It didn’t take Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez long to show where he is coming from on the recent release of two Colombian hostages by their cruel captors.

  In the space of two short days, Chavez has taken on the role as numero uno PR flak for the dreaded Revolutionary Armed forces of Colombia (FARC), the hemisphere’s biggest kidnapping force with 14,000 armed fighters.

While Colombian President Alvaro Uribe has managed to push the world’s most expert kidnapping contingent back into the jungle, Chavez attempts to bring them out as heroes.

Confession of an Iranian Terror Czar

“In fact, the public has the right not only to justice but to protection. For if, as a consequence of incompetence or cynical realpolitik, the true culprits are not tracked down and prosecuted, they and their government sponsors are free to orchestrate further murderous outrages. And experience shows that this is precisely what they do.”—David Horovitz, The Jerusalem Post, October 11 2007

Whatever happened to negotiations for the promised release of Ingrid Betancourt?

The silence of French President Nicolas Sarkozy is deafening on the tragic fate of French-Colombian politician Ingrid Betancourt.

No questions from Sarkozy yesterday when Clara Rojas, who was kidnapped in 2002 along with Betancourt and Consuelo Gonzalez de Perdomo, a former Colombian member of congress, taken hostage in 2001, were set free and flown to waiting family members in Venezuela.

Surely his question should have been: What about Ingrid Betancourt?

Trading with the Enemy

“Dear David, I badly need your help.

Some time ago a Russian newspaper “Vremya Novostei” published a story written by Arkady Dubnov, one of the best informed Russian journalists on Central Asia, about the alleged role of the US Air Force in heroin traffic from Afghanistan to Europe.

He wrote that the US Air Force transported 85% of heroin produced in Afghanistan. Dubnov quotes anonymous Afghani sources (there are also some accusations of Karzai’s brothers who take part in this scheme).

Today’s DNA could prove Hugo Chavez a liar

While arrogant Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez and his Hollywood sidekick director Oliver Stone held the world at bay over the Christmas holidays waiting for the release of a 3-year-old hostage, the little boy could have been in a Bogotá orphanage all the while.

  “Relatives of a child born to a hostage mother and a guerilla father will undergo DNA testing Tuesday to determine whether the child is still a captive—or in a Bogotá orphanage, as the Colombian president has charged.” (AFP, Jan. 1, 2008).

Proof that Emmanuel is in a Bogotá orphanage would prove Chavez, prancing about Villavicencio in the signature red beret and fatigues of his paratrooper days as the global court jester of all time.

Toronto commuter turns dog’s distress into Christmas miracle

Jagger It all started on the GO Train, just another day on the way to work.  As the miles sped away getting to his office, Mac Wilson gave scant attention to his fellow commuters as he sat there planning his Christmas shopping list.

  The countryside flashed by the window, the trees now showing black limbs rather than golden leaves against a brooding winter sky.  Then he spotted it, a dog in the Don River. He couldn’t be sure, but that’s what he thought as the train went speeding by.

Christmas miracle needed to get care package to Canadian troops in Afghanistan

Gabrielle Eckhardt  What a let down that 1,700 care packages lovingly prepared by Montreal-area residents and community groups destined for Canadian troops in Afghanistan, won’t be getting there.

  The Christmas care packages for soldiers have been grounded after the military said they could not be sent overseas.

Claiming security concerns and a lack of space on transport aircraft as reasons for blocking the packages, Canadian Forces brass informed nonplussed members of the Roxboro Legion, who spearheaded the drive that they cannot accept the packages.  Parcels must be addressed to a specific soldier, the military said, and not “Any CF member”.
