Generations of Iranians have blamed the US intelligence agency and its British partners for planning and executing the coup that overthrew Iranian Prime Minister Mohammad Mossadegh, and two US presidents – Bill Clinton and Barack Obama – have publicly owned up to their nation’s involvement. But yesterday, precisely 60 years on, the CIA finally formally acknowledged its own role in a declassified document published by the independent National Security Archive research institute

υπέροχη περιγραφή του πρόσφατου "διατροφικού σκανδάλου" (που στην ουσία αποτελούν καθημερινότητα) με το αλογίσιο κρέας στο μοσχάρι
τόσο υπέροχη που θα ταίριαζε σε μυθιστόρημα για το πως η απαγόρευση της κυκλοφορίας των αλόγων στην ρουμανία έφερε στο τραπέζι μας το αλογίσιο κρέας μέσα από κύπριους ολλανδους γαλλους λουξεμβουργιανους κλπ κλπ

Not all socialists want to dance on Margaret Thatcher's grave. I want her to go on and on - Comment - Voices - The Independent
18 Sep '12
Celebrating the prospect of her death has become an admittedly macabre substitute for the failure to defeat Thatcherism. The Iron Lady will die knowing her legacy is stronger than ever. It will only be worth celebrating when Thatcherism is finally purged from this country, and a Britain run in the interests of working people is built. Then we really can rejoice.
