December 14 in the news.....

  • Rwandan survivors of the African country's 1994 genocide have labelled the French troops whose bases they sought refuge in rapists. France has flatly denied the allegation commenting that they are 'surrendering fighters not victorious rapists'.

  • In Iran, Foreign Ministry spokesman Mohammad-Ali Hosseini said Tuesday that the confession of the Zionist regime's prime minister that Israel has nuclear military potential reveals the vicious goals and plots of the Zionist regime to materialise the strategy of terror and continued occupation of the regional territories. He added that this will end once Iran figures out how to do the same thing, saying the country will continue repeating the last year of high school if it fails on its current atttempt.

  • The embattled Afghan president Hamid Karzai warned yesterday that his country's enemies "will burn in hell with us" if Nato fails to stem a tide of Taliban violence emanating from neighbouring Pakistan. It was strikingly strong language and Karzai didn't sound very Christmassy.
