Catrachas Demand Ortega Stays in Nicaragua

PEJ News -
JossJosephMageau - A group of Honduran activists have insisted that Daniel Ortega stay in Nicaragua. An association of Mujeres Para La Paz have jumped on a denunuciation made by another women that Ortega made unseemly advances to her. Given the sort of violence common against women in Honduras and the Nica rep as fighters, not peacemakers, las Catrachas insist that the alliance implicit in ALBA trade alliance proceed as it is good for the nation but they really does not want Nicaragua to gain influence in the area through ALBA accord.

Leon Nicaragua in Revolutionary Fervor

PEJ News -
JossJosephMageau - Live from the Internet Cafe next door to the Benjamin Linder Cafe, Leon Nicaragua - Well, after a great cool down at nate yue s place in Jiqulillo I am back in Leon. Unlike my previous stops, Ocotal and Esteli in the North, Leon presents a more educated face to the world as it is a college town. This was one of the places where the students allied themselves with or manipulated all sorts of Leoneses to get rid of the dictator Somoza. Today, August 18, in the zocalo a pavilion is set up with a banner of revolutionary slogans exhorting all to buck up for the revolution. Such a plea is easy to understand, given the surly nature of urban people living in sweltering heat and still aware of their third world status.

Hiroshima and Nagasaki Remembered

PEJ News - Submission by Ace Hoffman - World War Two certainly did not end with a whimper, but with a bang.  Two very large bangs -- three if you count the Trinity test blast (and you should).  The war drums have continued banging ever since.

What could have been one of the more joyous dates in history -- the anniversary of the end of the last Great War, World War Two -- is, instead, a time of deep reflection about how it ended, and what it started.

Each year, old questions are asked anew. Were the bombings of both Hiroshima and Nagasaki militarily necessary?

Iran and Nuclear Weapons

PEJ News - Letter from Ace Hoffman -
Two people wrote to say they don't believe Iran is heading towards testing a nuclear weapon.  But Iran hardly needs nuclear-derived electricity!  They have oil, wind, solar, geothermal, wave -- they have lots of cheaper, safer, energy.  Some say they need nuclear power because they have oil, but no refineries.  But then, wouldn't building a refinery make more sense, at far less cost and risk?

Coal to Liquids

PEJ News -
This is an excerpt from an interesting internet forum.  Check the link Coal-to-Liquids  to read the article.

"It is not just environmental groups who are objecting to proliferation of coal-to-liquids technology. I am an energy engineer with 38+ years of experience. Coal-to-liquids is a red herring; a straw dog; a total waste of time, energy, money and talent; a boondoogle. A solution that solves the wrong problem."

The Height of Stupidity

PEJ News -
The subprime strikes and what do the banks do around the world?  Why they increase the down payment requirement so that those who could actually afford to pay their mortgage have their credit cut off.  The banks are  effectively smashing their own heads with a hammer----How stupid is that?

Hondurans Are Cool

PEJ News - Joce Mageau -
People, there is wisdom in liking peace over war and Honduras, though somewhat right wing, is actually full of progressive types who just want a chance to live better lives. Let's drop the political stance in favor of humanist assistance.
