Bosnian war chief 'DIES' after drinking bottle of poison

A Catholic this time. This is the bastard that blew up the stari most! Too bad.

===================================================================================
BREAKING NEWS: Bosnian war chief 'DIES' after drinking bottle of poison and yelling 'I'm not a war criminal' after his 20-year prison sentence for campaign against Muslims is upheld at The Hague
- Slobodan Praljak's 20-year sentence for war crimes was upheld by UN court
- Seconds later, the 72-year-old stood up and shouted 'I am not a war criminal!'
- Praljak then drunk from a small bottle which he told the court was poison
- Croatian state TV claims he has died in hospital and court is now a 'crime scene'

A former Bosnian-Croat military leader has reportedly died after drinking poison seconds after judges upheld his 20-year sentence.

Slobodan Praljak yelled, 'I am not a war criminal!' and appeared to drink from a small bottle, seconds after losing his appeal at the International Criminal Tribunal for the former Yugoslavia, in The Hague, Netherlands.

According to Croatian state television, the 72-year-old has since died - and the court room has been declared a crime scene.

Praljak is one of six Croatian politicians sentenced to jail for their involvement in a campaign to drive Muslims out of a would-be Bosnian Croat mini-state in Bosnia in the early 1990s.

Partisan boycotts and stupidity

This post has its origins in the title of a DUmmy post, but is really applicable to both sides of the partisan divide. It’s simply that this made me both laugh and sneer:

“TIME is no more. Just sold to a Koch Bros. entity. Cancelling my subscription...if I had one.”

Everyone, if you don’t normally buy a product, YOU CAN’T BOYCOTT THAT PRODUCT!

For example, if you’re on the Right and never go to Starbucks because it’s too expensive or you don’t like their coffee, you can’t boycott them because of their “War on Christmas” or their hiring policies. If you’re on the Left and you don’t eat at Chick-fil-A because you don’t like their chicken, you can’t boycott Chick-fil-A because of their approach to employee health care.

A personal example: I think McDonalds is one of the greatest purveyor of evil on the planet, but I haven’t been in one this century not because of that view but because I think their burgers are crap (if one needs to poison one’s body with fast food, give me Burger King any day).

Selection of a product based upon the product manufacturer’s political stance is ultimately self defeating. If you like the Hannity brand of coffee maker but hate Hannity’s views, wtf. You’re not buying Hannity, you’re buying a coffee maker. Same with the NFL, singers, movie stars, gold coins, Disney, etc. If politics has so ingrained itself in your psyche that you are making buying decisions on it, get help.

Hong Kong (Clive James)

The Wanderlust is seizing me again! I like HK and worked there briefly in the past. Perhaps a sojourn in the East is the tonic I need. Far from Paris and London but the flight’s only 12 hours and tickets only around £700.

This video, the first of four parts, has been one of my favourites for over a decade. If you’re not familiar with the brilliant Clive James, you should be. His ‘postcards’ series are available on YouTube.

Catholic officials warn ex-seminarians over sex claims

Article text originally posted deleted as it’s AP.

Just those Catholics being Catholics again. Since the days of those who said the earth might not be the centre of the universe, the Church’s response has always been the same.

Edward Herman, Holocaust Denier Extraordinaire, Is Dead

Edward Herman, who along with Noam Chomsky and Michael Parenti, vocally denied genocidal holocausts worldwide in support of their belief that all of the events surrounding these holocausts were controlled by an imperialistic American government in search of empire, is dead. Herman was a vocal denier of the massacre of 7000 Muslims at the hands of Orthodox Christians at Srebrenica in Bosnia in 1995.

================================================================================
Edward Herman, an economist who joined the linguist Noam Chomsky in accusing the United States of foreign policy hypocrisy and the mass media of complicity in parroting government propaganda, died on Nov. 11 in Penn Valley, Pa., near Philadelphia. He was 92.

The cause was complications of bladder cancer, his wife, Christine Abbott, said.

Dr. Herman was primarily responsible for the manifesto “Manufacturing Consent: The Political Economy of the Mass Media” (1988), which he wrote with Professor Chomsky. It concluded that “market forces, internalized assumptions and self-censorship” motivate newspapers and television networks to stifle dissent.

“His work has never been more relevant,” the reporter Matt Taibbi wrote on Rolling Stone’s website last week. “ ‘Manufacturing Consent’ was a kind of bible of media criticism for a generation of dissident thinkers.

================================================================================
It’s good to know that respected economists and historians such as Matt Tabbi endorsed Herman’s works. Herman, an economist and David Peterson, a linguist, co-authored The Politics of Genocide, in which they denied the genocides in Bosnia and Rwanda. The book has been heavily criticised by historians, although it retains currency amongst certain nationalistic and religious groups, as well as the usual group of ultra-Left conspiracy nutz.
