World Bank and IMF Announce $1.1 Billion in Debt Relief for Chad (tags)
The International Monetary Fund (IMF) and the World Bank announced $1.1 billion in debt relief for Chad.

Chad is the 36th country to receive HIPC relief and the first since 2012. Chad is the fourth-least developed country in the world. More than half its population lives in poverty.
No to French Military Intervention in Chad! (tags)
While the devastating rebel offensive marks time, the French government is showing its teeth. The sending a few days ago of several hundred soldiers to Chad to reinforce the thousand military already in place had been presented as intended to help expatriates (those local agents of imperialism which, it seems, still haven’t been bothered by anybody), the French military authorities said, without laughing, that they observed an attitude of neutrality vis-à-vis the internal affairs of the country. This so-called "neutrality" was reflected, however, by “logistical, medical and intelligence assistance” to the army of Chadian dictator Déby.

La Teoría de la Conspiración. Carta de Justine del marqués de Sade a la señora Maigret (tags)
Señora Maigret, ruego acepte mis felicitaciones por los progresos que veo en el proceso de evaluación de los resultados en la resistencia a la conspiración mediática que desarma los conceptos de Estado, de Nación, de ciudadano en la opinión, que es el objetivo de los grupos que usted coordina. Pese a estos loables y oportunos progresos en la identificación y denuncia de los rasgos de la conspiración, creo que mi propia historia, aconseja pasar a la ofensiva antes de ser fulminados como lo fui yo y tenemos y tenía yo, suficientes armas para sobrevivir.

COUP WATCH: Pregnant, Dimpled Chads Due To Faulty Machine Design, Not Voters (tags)
A common Republican theme of blaming individual voters for everything fishy in Florida is mndlessly echoed through almost all of the corporate media. But it's not the voters, it's the system, stupid! In this case, the voting system clogs & prevents a normal punch from registering an unambiguous vote. A mere mortal explains it all for the benefit of pundits everywhere.
