the only question that matters: is it true?

Iran has signed the NPT. As a signatory to the NPT, Iran may rightfully, legally, use nuclear technology for peaceful energy purposes. Iran has submitted to and passed repeated IAEA inspections. The US intelligence community (NIE) does not consider Iran a nuclear threat. Israel refuses to sign the NPT. Israel has an estimated several hundred undeclared nuclear weapons. Russia and China have warned that an attack on Iran will have global consequences. That's the situation in a nutshell. Where to next, people? Where to?

blaming victims, protecting abusers

1. Congolese sex workers attacked for infecting Ugandans with HIV

According to the area health inspector, Dennis Kesang, the Karamojongs who are traditionally cattle rustilng community had the least prevalence of Aids in the country before the Congolese women went there. ...

The area admnistrator, Amon Alek said that there are over 900 Congolese women living in the region.. He said ,’’About 300 of those women were once wives of the Ugandan soldiers who served in Democratic Republic of Congo some years back.

"On the soldiers’ returning to Uganda the women followed them but when they were redeployed to other parts of the country they abandoned the women. Over 600 other Congolese women in the past few months illegally entered Uganda, settled in Karamoja and started trading in sex.’’

The International Organization for Migration says 1,500 undocumented and stranded Congolese migrant women and their children live in abject poverty and misery throughout Uganda.

Uganda’s minister of ethics and integrity, James Nsaba Buturo said that something should be done to stop the women from spreading HIV-AIDS.

Nsaba Buturo said, ’’It is unfortunate that the Congolese women are infecting our people with HIV-AIDS. The law in Uganda is clear, those who infect others with HIV-AIDS knowingly must be arrested and prosecuted in courts of law.’’

He however said it would be difficult to establish which Congolese women are infected so as to have them arrested.

He said that the best that can be done at the moment is to sensitize people, especially Karamojong men so that they do not engage in sex with the women.

OR!!!! - HOW ABOUT GETTING THESE WOMEN OUT OF ABJECT POVERTY AND MISERY SO THEY DON'T HAVE TO SELL THEIR BODIES TO SURVIVE????? - ed.

2. fugitive pedophile caught in Turkey 3 years after judge grants him a holiday for the stress of the pedophile trial - NOTICE THE JUDGE IS NOT NAMED

A British paedophile who abused a string of boys has been arrested in Turkey three years after a judge allowed him to go on holiday, because of the stress of his trial. Alfred Palmer, 52, and his boyfriend Daniel Tapper, 53, have been on the run since May 2006 after sexually abusing vulnerable teenagers. The couple, who ran a landlord and letting agency, assaulted their young victims after finding them homes when they came out of social services care.

Palmer would ask his victims to strip to their boxer shorts during interviews and indecently assaulted them after finding them homes. The couple were eventually caught and charged with indecent assault when one of the victims told police of the horrific abuse. But when their trial was halted for legal reasons defence teams requested the return of their passports so they could go on holiday - because they were stressed. The request was approved by a judge and the sex monsters jetted off to Turkey with £300,000. They were reportedly staying in the sailing and holiday resort town of Marmaris in the south west of the country.

Both men were found guilty in their absence and Palmer has now been arrested in Turkey and is due to be extradited back to Britain.
