Hans Blix - wrong man in wrong place
Hans Blix, head of the United Nations Monitoring, Verification and Inspection Commission (UNMOVIC), is not a very popular person among those who want to see a military showdown with Saddam Hussein and Iraq. Two important articles in two of the most respected American print media, The Washington Times and National Review, criticize Mr Blix. In Washington Times former Swedish deputy prime minister and chairman of the Liberal Party, Per Ahlmark, wrote and published the criticism he earlier in 2002 published in the largest Swedish quality paper, Dagens Nyheter. Mr Ahlmark is personally well acquianted with Mr Blix for more than forty years. Mr Ahlmark describes Blix as naïve, weak and ignorant.
The deteriorating quality of the Swedish language, by Tommy Hansson
To criticize the quality of modern language is hazardous. Before you finish
the article, you might get a disastrous misprint attacking the low quality
but proving no point beacuse of your own misteake (…ooops! Wasn’t
I right?) But you have to take that risk in order to take care of the
deteriorating quality of the Swedish language in today’s media.
Venezuela a ruined country on the brink of chaos, by C G Holm
Venezuela is governed by Hugo Chávez Frías, an officer
who failed to grab power in a coup d’etat attempt in 1992. But in
1998 he succeded in winning a democratic election. He is dismantling democracy
and moves Venezuela in the same disastrous direction as the socialist
Salvador Allende moved Chile in the early 1970s. But the people of Venezuela
are protesting and demand new elections.
