A danger: - He has link with Gazprom - He’s russian and he may wants to improve the Russia’s image in Europe - He may wants to become a « star » as a french media specialist said - Since he owns the newspaper, the slogan wich shows the independance willing of the newspaper is not here anymore Not a real danger: - It’s usual that rich industrial man own newspaper (Bolloré, Dassauld in France for ex.) - He owns the russian newspaper « Novaïa Gazetta » (Anna Politkovskaia) wich was very critical toward the russian power - Offered money for people who got informations about her murder; we can suppose he’s for the press liberty
Published on Sunday, April 10, 2011 We're Not Being Told the Truth on Libya. Look at two other wars our government is currently deeply involved in - because they show that the claims made for this bombing campaign can't be true. Johann Hari
Yet now we are told that these people have turned into the armed wing of Amnesty International. They are bombing Libya because they can't bear for innocent people to be tyrannised, by the tyrants they were arming and funding for years. Surely, if we meant what we say about Libya, we would be doing anything to stop such behaviour? Wouldn't we be imposing a no-fly zone, or even invading? Yet, in this instance, we would have to be imposing a no-fly zone on our own governments. Since 2004, the US – with European support – has been sending unmanned robot-planes into Pakistan to illegally bomb its territory in precisely this way. Barack Obama has massively intensified this policy. So the good and decent impulse of ordinary people - to protect their fellow human beings - is manipulated. If you are interested in human rights only when it tells you a comforting story about your nation's power, then you are not really interested in human rights at all.
For the first time in more than 60 years, Western control over the world's biggest pots of oil was being rocked by a series of revolutions our governments couldn't control. The most plausible explanation is that this is a way of asserting raw Western power, and trying to arrange the fallout in our favour. But if you are still convinced our governments are acting for humanitarian reasons, I've got a round-trip plane ticket for you to some rubble in Pakistan and Congo. The people there would love to hear your argument.
