I ribelli di Ground Zero: 11 settembre, l’ultima cospirazione USA

(Italiano) I controversi slogan di 9-11 Truth seminano il dubbio e il sospetto. Dividono in frange opposte cittadini che hanno finora sfilato insieme nei cortei, uniti dal dolore, dalla rabbia e dalla comune convinzione che l’attacco alle Twin Towers è stata solo follia omicida, e niente di più.

Azerbaijan: Journey Among the Forgotten War Refugees

Azerbaijan is not just a reserve of black gold, Azerbaijan is also a forgotten war on TVs and newspapers.In the land of Nagorno-Karabakh there are rough disagreements between the Armenian and Azerbaijani communities.

Coltan is such a precious mineral for mobile telephones as for the Congolese Democratic Grouping. The rebel militia manages to illegally resell the mineral, earning $ 1 million a month, then investing in the war against the government’s army.
