I hope that no-one say that I am gratuitously attacking Bush. Surely they will understand my reasons for strongly criticizing his policies.

Needing Affection

Needing Affection

Albania was really the only place where Bush got any affection; to such an extent that the reception in Bulgaria where several thousand people awaited him waving little American flags seemed cool to him.

The Tyrant Visits Tirana

The Tyrant Visits Tirana

Bush is craving after affection. He fully enjoyed his reception without protests in Bulgaria. He spoke with that country’s soldiers who took part in the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. He tried to commit them further to spill generous blood in those peaceful wars.

Bush’s Lies And Cons

Bush's Lies And Cons

I don’t like the idea of seeming to be a vengeful person, someone wishful to relentlessly pursue an adversary. I had promised myself to wait a bit and see how the contradictions between Bush and his European allies would unfold on the vital subject of climate change. But George W. Bush went too far when he made a declaration that we read in an AP piece last Friday. The President of the United States stated that he would go to the Vatican “with a very open mind and…ready to listen” to the Pope, and he assured that they share a “common respect for human life and human dignity” and freedom.

For those who are not informed -and I am one of them-, G-8 refers to the group of most developed countries, including Russia. The anticipated meeting which begins in 6 days has awakened great expectations due to the profound political and economic crisis threatening the world.

Ideas Cannot Be Killed

Ideas Cannot Be Killed

A few days ago, while analyzing the expenses involved in the construction of three submarines of the Astute series, I said that with this money “75,000 doctors could be trained to look after 150 million people, assuming that the cost of training a doctor would be one-third of what it costs in the United States.” Now, along the lines of the same calculations, I wonder: how many doctors could be graduated with the one hundred billion dollars that Bush gets his hands on in just one year to keep on sowing grief in Iraqi and American homes. Answer: 999,990 doctors who could look after 2 billion people that today do not receive any medical care.

Bush Expects Everything To Be Solved With A Bang

Bush Expects Everything To Be Solved With A Bang

A word popped up in my mind. I looked it up in the dictionary and there it was; it’s an onomatopoeic word and its connotation is tragic: bang. I’ve probably never used it in my life.

For The Deaf Who Won't Listen

World cereal production is on track to reach a record level in 2007. In spite of this, supplies will be barely adequate to meet increased demand, boosted by the development of the biofuels industry.

Nobody Wants To Take The Bull By The Horns

Nobody Wants To Take The Bull By The Horns

On March 28, less than two months ago, when Bush proclaimed his diabolical idea of producing fuel from food, after a meeting with the most important U.S. automobile manufacturers, I wrote my first reflection.

The English Submarine

The English Submarine

The press dispatches bring the news; it belongs to the Astute Class, the first of its kind to be constructed in Great Britain in more than two decades.
