War in Lebanon

A chara,

I am writing to express my disgust at the blatant opportunism of the Israeli regime that virtually orchestrated the current war in the Lebanon for its own gain. The attempt to disintegrate the Hizbullah however, is backfiring as the airwaves daily illustrate murder and mayhem at the hands of the Israeli forces. Hizbullah is supported by Syria and Iran and these countries are probably the real Israeli targets.

Israel tries to present itself as the arch victim while slaughtering all round them in Palestine and the Lebanon. As head of a country with a history of foreign interference and occupation the Irish government must push the UN Security Council for a just resolution instead of pandering to an Israeli regime that has demonstrated itself as nothing less that vicious and self serving.

Cuba's continued resistance

A Chara,

A draft report from the commission for assistance to 'Free Cuba' chaired by Condoleeza Rice was leaked in July of this year. The report's main focus was recommendations for destabilising Cuba in the event of Castro's death. In short, the report admits another plan by the United States to overthrow a sovereign government and impose their own capitalist, opprsive 'democracy' on the people of Cuba.

Cuba is and has been for years a powerhouse of resistance, and its revolution has survived to this day against tremendous odds. America has made false allegations for years that Cuba is on the verge of collpapse.

Cuba's new economic ties with China and Venezuela have boosted its grwoth rate by 10%. Things are on the up and up and Cuba. The Cuban revolution and its continued resistance gives hope to millions of oppressed people around the world.

If America succeeded in overthrowing Fidel castros government, it would be a massiove blow to the people of Latin America. Although we are aware that the revolutionary party in Cuba is well prepared for the eventual death of Fidel Castro, we would like to take this opportunity in sending solidarity greetings and get well wishes to the great revolutionary and Commander-in-Chief, Fidel Castro.

Clipeadh an PSNI ar pháiste

A Chara,

Ta orm cúpla focal a bhreacadh síos agus cuir chugat leis an eachtra a dtarla don pháiste óg (11 bliain d‚aois) I nDoire ar an 30ú lá de mhí Iúil agus na ceisteanna tábhachtacha a n-iarrann sé ar phóilíneacht sa sé chondae.

Bhí ar an phaiste óg in éineacht lena máthair agallamh a fhreastali mbeairic na bpéas ar Bhóthar na Trá. Agus sula scaoileadh amach as an stáisiún í cuireadh ceisteanna uirthi, glacadh grianghraf di, glacadh méid a bróg agus fiú togadh sampla de DNA uaithi fosta. Agus cad é a bhí an choir mhillteanach a rinne an Œdesperado‚ seo ?

Bhuel, scríobh sí a hainm ar bhallaí na cathrach le peann. Ní ionadh orainn ar bith go raibh an cailín óg agus a máthair sceimhlithe leis an triail seo. Leoga, cuir an drochíde mhillteanach seo do pháiste óg mar gheall ar rud páistiúil a rinne sí i gcodarsnacht leis an dóigh a chuaigh an PSNI i ngleic leis na dílseoirí i mBéal Feirste Thuaidh an tseachtain chéanna nuair a bhí sraitheanna daoine, céadta dílseoirí, ar na sráideanna ag bagairt foréigin agus ní dhearna an PSNI
