Venezuela to hold ‘anti-fascism’
events in honor of Chile’s Allende

Santiago Times [Santiago, Chile], by Clemence Douchez-Lortet

Original Article

Posted By:PageTurner, 9/10/2013 10:58:51 PM

A number of events will be organized from Sept. 11-13 in Caracas following Venezuelan President Nicolás Maduro’s announcement of a multinational event against “fascism.” It will be organized in memory of Chile’s former President Salvador Allende, and will start on the 40 year-anniversary of the military coup that overthrew him. “I invite you this week to Caracas to attend the world conference against fascism, reminding [sic] President Salvador Allende,” Maduro said on Twitter.

Comments:
Take a gander at the kind of people who think Salvador Allende was the cat´s pajamas. To hear this bunch talk about fascism is like hearing ´love´ from the mouth of a prostitute.

Chile´s Pinochet regime used
Julio Iglesias and George
Harrison songs as ´torture
soundtrack,´ researchers claim
Independent [U.K.], by Kim Pilling    Original Article
Posted By: PageTurner- 9/10/2013 10:37:00 PM     Post Reply
Prisoners held by the regime of former Chilean dictator General Augusto Pinochet were played a “torture soundtrack” of songs by Julio Iglesias and George Harrison, according to new research. Music played at high volume during torture was part of the psychological suffering endured by some of his thousands of political opponents who were detained when Pinochet seized power in 1973. According to former prisoners, Harrison’s “My Sweet Lord”, the soundtrack to Stanley Kubrick’s film A Clockwork Orange and songs by Spanish crooner Iglesias were played for days at a time.

Australia´s new government
aims to reboot mining boom

Australia´s incoming conservative government has promised to reboot a stalled mining boom and revive an appetite for investment. Prime minister-elect Tony Abbott swept into office on a platform to scrap a mining tax and run a stable administration. Mr Abbott´s Liberal-National Party coalition ended six years of often turbulent Labor Party rule and three years of minority government. It won a majority of more than 30 seats in the 150-seat parliament at the national elections. It was Labor´s worst result since 1934. Mr Abbott, a former student boxer, Rhodes scholar and trainee priest, began his first day as prime minister-elect with a dawn bike

Political sparks fly after Venezuela blackout

CARACAS – One of the worst power outages in Venezuelan history has given a jolt to President Nicolas Maduro’s government and revived opposition accusations that its socialist policies and incompetence are wrecking the country. Even though Venezuela’s 29 million people have endured sporadic blackouts since 2009, there was widespread shock at the extent of this week’s outage across two-thirds of the nation. In the capital Caracas, which the government strenuously shields from rationing, the power went off throughout Tuesday afternoon, causing chaos on the streets. “This isn’t the Third World, it’s the Fifth World!” griped student Marilyn Morales, 26, recounting how first she

Phillip Paulwell, Jamaica’s minister of science, technology, energy and mining, who leaves the island for Port-au-Prince, Haiti, today, said he is expecting a positive response to the proposal. “By the end of the weekend, I will be able to report on it,” Paulwell told The Gleaner.

Chile still split over Gen
Augusto Pinochet legacy

It often comes as a surprise to foreigners visiting Chile to discover that Gen Augusto Pinochet still has supporters here. Outside Chile, the general is almost universally vilified - remembered as a ruthless dictator whose military regime killed more than 3,000 political opponents, tortured many more and drove thousands into exile. But inside the country, views tend to be more nuanced. As the country marks the 40th anniversary of the military coup that brought him to power, attitudes towards Gen Pinochet´s 1973-1990 regime and the Socialist government of Salvador Allende that preceded it remain complex and subject to intense debate.

   

 

  


 
Colombia troops to patrol Bogota after protests

Colombia is deploying troops in the capital, Bogota, following violent protests in support of a strike by small-scale farmers. Colombian President Juan Manuel Santos said the troops were needed "to assure normality". Clashes with police broke out after thousands of people took to the streets in support of the farmers. At least two people have died. Farmers say government policies are driving them into bankruptcy. "Last night, I ordered the militarisation of Bogota and I will do the same today in any municipality or area that needs the presence of our soldiers," President Santos said in a televised address after an overnight cabinet meeting.

Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) is trying to regain credibility with the conservative base by helping Sens. Ted Cruz (R-FL), Mike Lee (R-UT) and Rand Paul (R-KY) with their effort to defund Obamacare in the upcoming Continuing Resolution (CR), but Tea Party activists are still placing pressure on the junior Senator. “Amid a smattering of boos and yells of ‘no amnesty,’ Sen. Marco Rubio waded through a rowdy summer-recess crowd on Friday where he tried to focus more on the push to defund ObamaCare than the ongoing debate over immigration legislation,” Fox News’ Serafin Gomez reports from Orlando’s Americans for Prosperity Summit.

Israel plans to soon begin deporting migrants from Eritrea and Sudan, who number more than 50,000, back to Africa via Uganda, officials said. Israel regards most of the Africans as illegal visitors in search of jobs, and largely rejects the position of human rights groups that many fled their countries in search of political asylum. A statement late on Thursday from interior minister Gideon Sa´ar said Israel would soon begin a staged process of deporting the migrants, most of whom have crossed the border with Egypt since 2006. Sa´ar said an agreement had been reached with Uganda to absorb the "infiltrators", who would

Cuba has reported a new cholera outbreak with 163 cases, 12 of whom are tourists, though no deaths were mentioned, according to a bulletin from the Pan American Health Organization, PAHO. The update from 23 August is based on information provided by epidemiological authorities on the island. Cuban authorities have yet to report publicly the number of cases though on Tuesday a pro-government blogger known as Yohandry quoted on the web the PAHO information which refers to the outbreak in the provinces of Havana, Santiago de Cuba and Camaguey.

Yun Hye-yong was a woman beyond the reach even of North Korean dictator Kim Jong-il. Yun, the lead singer of Kim´s former favorite band Pochonbo Electronic Ensemble, was brutally executed after she spurned Kim´s persistent advances and fell in love with another man. Or so claims Chang Jin-song, an author formerly affiliated with the North Korean Workers´ Party, in "Kim Jong-il´s Last Woman." Published in May, it is an epic poem that details Kim´s private life and inside story of his regime based on the true story of the Pochonbo Electronic Ensemble.

The sheer ineptitude of President Obama´s handling of his Syria red line has made jaws drop all across the political spectrum. The man who garnered so much admiration for his oratorical brilliance, personal charm, and political genius has managed to make matters worse with every step he has taken. This dramatic and historic collapse demands explanation.It must be acknowledged from the start that Obama might now be the victim of unrealistic expectations stoked by his media allies, who once called him a "lightworker" and "almost a god." But then again, when you promise to stem the rise of the oceans,

Secretary of State John Kerry’s case for a U.S. strike in Syria seems to rest on two assumptions. One, that it is a crucial test for U.S. national security and the values of the civilized world comparable to the rise of Nazi Germany. Two, that it’s not really a big deal.Over the weekend, Kerry described the Syrian government’s use of chemical weapons as “our Munich moment,” telling an audience in France, "This is not the time to be silent spectators to slaughter. … This is not the time to send a message where doing nothing is far more risky than

In an interview with NBC, President Obama suggested a diplomatic solution was at hand regarding Syria, and he said, "If you ask Michelle do we want to be involved in another war, the answer is no." The NBC host asked, "Would you act without Congress? The answer could be yes, no, or I haven´t decided." "I think it´s fair to say that I haven´t decided.

U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry said the United States is considering only an “unbelievably, small, limited” strike on Syria as punishment for allegedly using chemical weapons and he insisted military action will not end that country’s civil war. “We’re not going to war,” Mr. Kerry told reporters Monday after meeting with British Foreign Secretary William Hague in London. “We will be able to hold [Syrian President] Bashar al-Assad accountable without engaging troops on the ground or any other prolonged kind of effort, in a very limited, very targeted, very short-term effort that degrades his capacity to deliver chemical weapons

US secretary of state John Kerry has given an ultimatum to Syrian president Bashar al-Assad to avoid a military strike by turning over his entire chemical weapons arsenal to the international community within the next week. At a joint press conference with UK foreign secretary William Hague, Kerry said that America was not going to war but would launch an "unbelievably small and limited effort" to punish the Assad regime for the 21 August chemical weapons attack in Ghouta and to deter it from doing it again. "If you want to send Assad a congratulatory message, you would support non-intervention,"

Having insisted for the past two weeks that military strikes are the only appropriate response to the Syrian regime’s use of chemical weapons against its own people, the Obama administration muddled its message today by entertaining the possibility of a non-military solution to the crisis. Asked at a press conference in London this morning whether there was anything Syrian dictator Bashar al-Assad could do to avert a U.S. attack, Secretary of State John Kerry said ”he could turn over every single bit of his chemical weapons to the international community in the next week.” Russia and Syria seized on the remark and

Private citizen Hillary Clinton talks about Syria. Why? In what capacity? Well of course when you’re Hillary you never really stop being Hillary. Who’s on first? Hillary, Kerry, Obama or Vladimir Putin? Readers will recall the recent post The Voyage of the Nikolai Filchenkov, where it first became apparent that the Russian President was getting ready to pull the rug right out from under Barack Obama. It was speculated that the ship was heading for Syria to remove the chemical weapons so that Obama would have no further pretext to attack Assad.

The fate of President Obama’s second term hangs on his Tuesday speech to the nation about Syria. If Congress votes against a military attack on President Bashar Assad’s regime, Obama’s credibility may be shot, perhaps for the rest of his tenure. At a minimum, it would cement the idea that he is weak in Washington, let alone worldwide. Ever since his surprising announcement on Aug. 31 that he would seek Capitol Hill’s approval for a strike on Syria, votes have piled up against the idea, especially in the House. The president might yet turn the tide. But, if he does not do so,

When I wrote in my last but one column that the only winner in the shambles that the West was making over its response to Syria would be Vladimir Putin, I had no idea how prescient that snide comment would turn out to be. So incompetent has the Obama White House been in its on-again, off-again action against the criminal despot Assad, and so eager is Barack Obama himself to find an exit from his own impasse, that Russia is being absurdly elevated to world saviour in a crisis which it has helped to create.

An attacker pummeled a bus passenger so hard he smashed the bones in his face after calling the victim a “cracker” in Manhattan – marking the second time in two days that people appeared to be randomly targeted in racial tirades against white people, authorities said. In the latest incident, the suspect passed a 31-year-old rider on the M60 bus riding through Harlem, on West 127th Street, between Amsterdam Avenue and Morningside Drive, around 2:45 p.m., Friday, when he shouted the racial slur and punched the victim in the face, breaking his nose and eye socket, cops said.
