Anti-US press mob on the move

USA boycotting the rogue state Sudan
by Allan C. Brownfeld

During the Cold War idealists - both conservatives and liberals - focused on the barbarianism of the Soviet system and its denial of human rights.

An irresponsible choice of Speaker

In 1994 the - at the time - 57 year old social democrat Birgitta Dahl was elected Speaker of the Swedish Parliament. The second-ranking public office in Sweden - second only to H M the King.

It took her fully 20 years to disavow her own statements of support for Pol Pot and the Khmer Rouge in Cambodia. A disavowment forced on her, because of the high office she was elected to.

The Josef Frolik defection in Prague

He brought with him a large number of revealing documents from the Czech secret service.

As most of other Communist leaders of the time she was raised in a very bourgeois environment. Her life was very turbulent.

Jovan Rajs, well-known Swedish legal medical examiner, has written a book on his own infallability.
