Cold War 2.1 – the return of the Evil Empire,
by C G Holm

Evil Empire is back.

The female track in the da Costa case,
by Patrik Nyberg
Thousands of articles have been written on the murder of Catrine da Costa.
And you could believe that all tracks and ideas have been investigated
to the bottom. But no. The weak performance by the police in the beginning
of the case means that new ideas still arise. But now the police will
do nothing, because the murder has passed the time limit of twenty-five
years (a time limit abolished, but only after the limit had been passed
in the da Costa case).
Crimea – Tatars, Ukrainians and Russians
When Vladimir Putin last year occupied and incorporated Crimea into Russia
he claimed that Crimea was Russian until 1954. But the history of Crimea
is far from Russian and in the history of Crimea there have been three
peoples living on the peninsula. Tatars, Ukrainians and Russians. The
group with the longest history is the Tatars and they were the majority
until deported by Josef Stalin. Ukrainians and Russians arrived only in
the beginning of the 19th century.

well be one in a couple of decades. The Russians were here before. In
1974 the KGB delivered weapons to Cypriot politicians.

by Tommy Hansson
Extreme islamists threaten our society. As such is the case, it is only
rational to show fear. We must be able to react and counter when we are
threatened. And at the same time be aware of the fact that there are many
moslems that condemn violence and terror.
In the US there is a melting pot, not multiculturalism,
by Allan C. Brownfeld
The world’s biggest country for immigration, the United States,
has never been a society for multiculturalism. This is something the Europeans
should consider when more and more immigrants are coming to Europe.
