Front Page: War Crimes Suspect Captured, US Ready to Cut Farm Aid, Bulldozer Attack

  • War Crimes Suspect Captured:
    Celebrations swept the streets in Sarajevo over the news that Bosnian Serb war crimes suspect, Radovan Karadzic, had been captured. He'd been hiding in Belgrade, Serbia, on the run for more than 10 years. Charged with using 284 UN peacekeepers as human shields, the UN says Karadzic's forces killed up to 8,000 in 1995 as part of a campaign to "terrorize and demoralize the Bosnian Muslim and Bosnian Croat population."
  • US Ready to Cut Farm Aid:
    The US is ready to drop the maximum for farm subsidies to $15 billion a year to under pressure during talks for a global trade deal. The trade offer is hinged to other partners at the WTO also opening up their markets for agricultural and industrial goods. The ceiling for farm subsidies, freeing trade, is a key component of the deal.

  • Bulldozer Attack:
    A bulldozer driver rampaged in Jerusalem today, crushing vehicles close to the hotel where Obama is expected to stay later today. The driver of the bulldozer was shot dead. Police are describing the incident, the second one in less than a month, as a "terrorist" attack. Officials say that 11 people were injured, and no one has yet claimed responsibility.

Did you read that article? I am so glad that you chose to revise it, Citizen. You did a good deal better than Reuters! Read this:"JERUSALEM, July 22 (Reuters) - A bulldozer driver went on a rampage in Jerusalem on Tuesday, hitting vehicles near a hotel where U.S. Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama is due to stay later in the day before he was shot dead."Boy is that confusing! It really reads like Barak Obama was shot, not the bulldozer driver.

Maybe he wasn't a terrorist. Maybe he was just an enthusiastic construction worker. Let's not jump to conclusions here.

Yea they finally caught Kradzic. I read something yesterday about war crimes and current situations that really surprised me: "So hot is the speculation that war-crimes trials will eventually follow in foreign or international courts that Lawrence Wilkerson, Colin Powell's former chief of staff, has publicly advised Mr. Feith, Mr. Addington (Cheney chief of staff) and Alberto Gonzales, among others, to "never travel outside the U.S., except perhaps to Saudi Arabia and Israel."

Farm subsidies make me nervous. It's just such a huge part of the economy and it seems like tweaking it has such a ripple effect.

Glad for Bosnia locating a war criminal. Hopefully there is swift justice there. Read where farmers are responsible for some of the increase in food costs because instead of raising crops for human consumption, they are raising corn for ethanol. Not good? Another Arab attacking Israelis. Golda Meier said it best: When the Arabs love their children more than they hate Israelis, the wars will end.
