https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-europe-45030087Questions have been raised about the team's driver, who escaped the attack in circumstances that are yet to be fully explained.
Anastasia Gorshkova told the BBC that, in the days before the attack, ICC editors in Moscow had raised concerns about the man after it emerged the group had been stopped by the police close to their hotel and forced to pay a bribe.
Is not this the great Babylon that I have built.....
Unfortunately there is little transparency in the Entire Foreign Aid budget. We are borrowing money to send to countries run by ruling kleptocracies while at the same time they are purchasing weapons, real estate overseas and generally wallowing in richness, meanwhile the Povo, the peasants the ordinary people wallow in poverty.
NGOs such as Goal, Concern, Trocaire , A to Z, ACTED to ZOA claim they work in eradicating poverty but instead just maintain the status quo.
As regards DF deployment to Mali well if it gives the DF some practical experience good and if we can wangle some commercial benefit from it even better but lets not do it because we are supposed to be doing good. As for Irish deployments with the UN well these mission with one or two exceptions are a total a F Up and publicity stunt. THE UN is dysfunctional as an organization is inefficient, ineffective and generally mediocre and corrupt.
So save 600 m = borrowing a year and reduce Irish Aid. Instead invest it in housing in Ireland for Irish people.
LEO does not give a stuff about the DF , he has no respect for them and this is very obvious with many of the TDs, Ministers etc Leo is just looking for the next UN job, Why the F is Ireland looking for a seat on the Un security council we cannot even secure Dublin Airport from Illegal migration , our seas from exploitation by others and even police our airspace ….
My money should not be spent on Africa , it’s their problem if they all get off on killing each other , let them at it.
I assume that gays are allowed in our army as we don’t fight any wars , Leo is prob having a great time.
