Afghanistan: Gulnaz, released from prison, forced to marry her rapist!

 
In November 2009, Afghan President Hamid Karzai ordered the release of Ms. Gulnaz, an Afghan woman from prison for "adultery."
        
Having been a victim of rape by a cousin of her husband, she was sentenced to 12 years in prison in Kabul. Under Afghan law, not her rapist was convicted but herself after the birth of a child born of rape. To avoid being stigmatized.
        
To protest against this unjust law, 5,000 people from other violence against women, have signed a petition calling for his release.
        
After her rape, Gulnaz was sentenced to twelve years in prison for "adultery." Imprisoned in Kabul, she gave birth to a child of that rape.
        
Judicial officials have estimated that after his release, Gulnaz was to marry her rapist to escape the stigma and popular violence. For          Afghan women raped are automatically stigmatized by their poor society.
        
As collateral for not being attacked, Gulnaz demanded that his brother married the sister of the rapist and husband!

The miserable condition of Afghan women!

        
"I, a human being, I had to see the world behind a veil mesh, like a prison ... I am horrified, but we could not afford to break tradition. "testifies an Afghan woman behind the grating of her chador in the book of Isabelle Delloye "Women of Afghanistan, Phoebus, Paris, 2002."
         More than a decade after the fall of the ultra-rigid Islamist Taliban, ousted from power by U.S. and allied forces, the status of Afghan women seems to have evolved only in the cities.
         But in the rural Afghan society is very traditional and patriarchal. Forced marriages, male oppression, cruelty, family, gender discrimination, rape unpunished and "honor killings" are common.
        
Between 60 and 80% of all Afghan marriages are forced and early unions.
The Commission Afghan Independent Human Rights has documented 1,026 cases of violence against women during the second quarter 2011, against 2,700 cases for the year 2010.
        The issue of women's rights is considered a secondary matter, and gender equality.
        
The average lifespan of women in Afghanistan is 42 years, almost 20 years younger than the world average. Elsewhere in the world, women generally live longer than men, but not in Afghanistan.
        
"Apparently there is no history of Afghan women, because history seems to have done without them, who remained as they were thirteen centuries ago ..." wrote Isabelle Delloye.
        
Islamic Republic of Afghanistan covers an area of ​​652,000 km2 and is inhabited by 29,835,392 inhabitants (2011). It is chaired by Hamid Karzai (born 1957) since December 22, 2001.

Burkina Faso: The insolence of Captain Thomas Sankara.

 
At the Summit of Heads of States of the Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS), comprising Burkina Faso, Benin, Ivory Coast, Mali, Mauritania, Niger and Senegal when it was normally around the head of state of Burkina Faso (the young Captain Thomas Sankara) to chair the ECOWAS for one year rotating.
          Ivorian President Felix Houphouet-Boigny was opposed strongly.
         What irritated the utmost President Thomas Sankara.
When he asked why the "old president " replied:
         "Because you're too kid to be able to assume such  responsibility!"
         "And you, 'said Thomas Sankara of tic for tac, you are not wise as they say, but an old gaga that should have retired a long time!"
        
Insolence is perhaps something to do with his murder October 15, 1987.

A white South African political refugee in Canada.

 
In August 2009, Brandon Huntley (31) located in Ottawa since 2006 has acquired the status of political refugee in Canada. The South African says he was victim of several racist attacks between 1991 and 2003, and it is because of the color of his skin.
         Huntley who grew up in Mowbray, a town near Cape Town was attacked seven times: burglary, assault, three knife attacks. He then told the Commission for Refugees that he had been treated "White Dog" and "colon", in reference to the colonial history of South Africa.
         The Commission also considered the testimony of Laura Kaplan, sister of Huntley's lawyer who also left his native South Africa. She testified she was threatened by armed black South Africans who broke with his brother Robert who was tortured and then 8 hours at a time was left for dead after being shot three times.
         The Canadian Committee responsible for reviewing applications found that Brandon Huntley had provided sufficient evidence to support his claims.
         His lawyer, Russell Kaplan told that "it is probably the first time that a white South African gets refugee status due to persecution on the part of black South Africans." He believes that the decision of the Office of Immigration was motivated by the desire to protect the human rights of his client and the inability of the South African government to protect its citizens.
         The South African newspaper "The Star" published an interview with Brandon Huntley, in which he argues that his complaints to the police were not pursued.
         But the newspaper said, no complaints from this man was found in the records of the police.
         The Star concludes that he abused the Canadian authorities.
Brandon Huntley's claims have shocked many people in a country where crime is fifty people a day, regardless of race.
But "Afriforum", an organization that defends the rights of the white minority believes that this incident illustrates the feeling of being "second class citizens" experienced by many South Africans of European origin.
         The African National Congress (ANC) party in power since the end of apartheid in 1994, said: "The fact that Canada has recognized that Africans (blacks) were persecuting Brandon Huntley is a racist decision" the BBC reported.
         The South African government, for its part, said he would seek to overturn the granting of asylum to one of its white citizens because of racist persecution.
         A spokesman for the South African Department of Home Affairs, Ronnie Mamoepa, said his government was "disgusted" by the Canadian decision.

These patients who govern Latin America.

 "Leaders cancer patients" *
A disease that spreads terror,
Disease that Heaven in its wrath
Invented to punish the crimes of the earth,
Cancer (since we must call by name)
Was the war Latino leaders.
They did not all die, but all were beaten.
... My dear friends,
I think the sky has invented
This misfortune for their sins;
Because of these people that their people
Are a visionary empire.
Do not flatter ourselves, therefore, see no indulgence
The state of their power.
Because we wish to justice in all
That the most guilty perish.
As may be democratic or dictator,
The Divine Judgement will make him white or black.

Argentina: From tears of joy to the uncertainties of the future.
         "On December 22, 2011, during routine examinations, a papillary carcinoma was detected in the right lobe of the thyroid gland of Mrs. Kirchner. (...) There was no metastasis and surgery is scheduled for January 4, 2012. The disease is limited. "Announced the spokesman of the Presidency, Alfredo Soccimarro adding that she should be hospitalized for 72 hours and follow a 20-day convalescence.
        
"The outlook is excellent and the tumor should not change after the operation," said the oncologist Mario Bruno, a member of the Argentine Association of Oncology.
Ms Cristina Elisabet Fernandez de Kirchner will be replaced by his vice president Amado Boudou, recently took office after Economy Minister.
        
First elected December 10, 2007, she has been triumphantly re-elected October 23, 2011 in the first round for a second term.
         She is the widow of President Nestor Carlos Kirchner felled by a heart attack at age 60 at night at his home in El Calafate, Province of Santa Cruz October 27, 2010 during his term.

Brazil: Dlima Roussef after Luiz Inacio Lula Da Silva ... and former Vice President Jose Alencar.
         Dlima Vana Rousseff, born in 1947, the first woman elected president of Brazil has also suffered from cancer. Indeed, 26 April 2009, a month after her election, she announced that she was diagnosed with lymphatic cancer and should undergo chemotherapy with a high probability of cure.
        
But what is curious is the fact that his predecessor, aged 66, Luiz Inacio Lula Da Silva was admitted to the Syrian-Lebanese Hospital in Sao Paulo. The former president of Brazil (2003 to 2010) should follow an outpatient chemotherapy to fight cancer that affects the larynx. After two terms marked by a sharp decline in poverty in Brazil, Lula, a former steelworker, has completed his two terms in late 2010.
        
The series has only just begun because the former vice president of Brazil from 2003 to 2011, José Alencar Gomes da Silva who was born October 17, 1931 died of a generalized cancer March 29, 2011 in Sao Paulo.
President Fernando Lugo worried Paraguayans.
         President Armando Fernandez Lugo Mendez, born in 1951, is suffering from lymphatic cancer diagnosed in August 2010. Despite the advanced stage of his cancer, he continued as president for the duration of treatment.
        
His doctors say he can continue to heal with chemotherapy, but in the meantime his popularity has fallen very low, especially after the recognition of children born to his escapades during his priesthood.
His social reforms have stalled after losing its majority in Parliament.
        
He who was once nicknamed "The bishop of the poor" and whose election promises had raised so much hope in this poor country of South America after 62 years of Conservative government.
        
If he has introduced free in public health and limited corruption, part of the population is also disappointed by the paralysis of his social program and the slow pace of land reform in a country where 80% of land is in the hands of 2% of the inhabitants, says pollster Francisco Caplis.
        
"For about 5 to 6 days between chemotherapy sessions, the President must take precautions to avoid being in contact with too many people in enclosed spaces or with the crowd to avoid infections," explains his doctor Alfredo Boccia.
Chemotherapy and pilgrimage to the healing of the cancer of Venezuela's president Hugo Chavez.
         Back from Cuba where he underwent surgery and four sessions of chemotherapy, the President of the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela said he was cured of his cancer. The strongman of Caracas intends to run for president in 2012.
        
"Everything went perfectly. I have the highest scores, 20 out of 20. I am free of the disease. The new Chavez came," said the socialist president on his arrival in La Fria, in western Venezuela where he plans to make a pilgrimage to a Catholic shrine.
        
Hugo Chavez Frias, who is 57 years old, announced in June that he was suffering from cancer without providing details. He underwent four rounds of chemotherapy in Cuba after surgery in the region of the abdomen June 20 in Havana.

At 83, President Fidel Castro was the first Latin American president who resigned ... due to illness!

        
On July 31, 2006, "El Comandante" is seriously ill. A 80-year-old Cuban leader underwent three surgeries and heavy as general anesthesia, peritonitis, removal of the colon and complications in the gall bladder, according to medical sources quoted by the Spanish newspaper El Pais .
"Castro suffered in the summer of intestinal bleeding and severe infection (peritonitis) caused by inflammation of the large intestine, which in medical term is called diverticulitis," said the newspaper citing medical sources at the hospital Gregorio Maranon de Madrid.
        
On April 19, 2011, he officially ceded power to his younger brother Raul Castro, elected under section 94 of the Cuban Constitution by the National Assembly February 24, 2008. Ubiquitous for nearly half a century, Fidel Castro is the only head of state that 70% of 11 million Cubans have known.
        
But Castro has a dimension that exceeds the limits of his country, his opposition remained intact to the powerful American neighbor, and his role in the Non-Aligned Movement. He is so important that others in the American sub-continent were inspired by this time and ensure continuity.
        
In the interview, published in the Mexican daily "La Jornada", the former Cuban president says he had happened several times in the antechamber of death, but he came back.
        
"I wondered if they (the doctors) would let me live in these conditions or if they would let me die," said Fidel Castro to Mexican reporter of "La Jornada".
        
Fidel Alejandro Castro Ruz was born August 13, 1923 and came to power in Havana in the wake of a revolution in February 1959.

France / Algeria: "The colonial crimes were a genocide" *

 
Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan lit the fuse of the bomb in Algeria.

         By encouraging Paris to put its own house before condemning the Armenian Genocide, the Turkish Prime Minister has paved the way for Algerian historians: yes, genocide was indeed committed in the former colony.
         The historian and former president of the association's May 8, 1945 [April 27, 2008, France recognized that "appalling massacre" took place in Setif, Guelma and Kherrata (in the east) on 8 May 1945, Mohamed El-Korso **, does not mince words. For him, it is undeniable that the word "genocide" applies perfectly to the crimes perpetrated by colonial France in Algeria.

The gaping wounds of Algeria.

         Joint December 24, 2011 by phone, he responded to the controversy raging between Paris and Ankara in abundance in the direction of Prime Minister Erdogan: "When you have a colonel of colonization that says: I cut the heads', he not talking about cutting the heads of artichokes, but those of Algerians. The intent to liquidate by the sword and the gun is real and not fictitious.
         The "enfumades" and "walling" that decimated whole tribes, how to call it? he insists, before launching: "Colonel Montagnac said: 'Kill all the men from the age of 15.' Do this, this is not a genocide? The Cavaignac, Bugeaud, Pelissier did not come on holiday. They came to liquidate an entire people and they could not take the place of what they called the natives without commit genocide. "
        
Mohamed El-Korso provides some enlightening facts about it: "The colonial army experimented with extermination by gas a century before Nazi Germany. Enfumades The Dahra and walled up in the - in the region of Mostaganem - the (tribes ) Sbehas in June 1844 by Colonel Cavaignac and Ouled Riah June 19, 1854 by Colonel Pélissier, lime kilns Guelma (May 1945), the wine tanks (1957) settlers from Tlemcen, Sidi Bel-Abbes or Zéralda, the gassing of the inhabitants of Dahra who had fled Layachine Ghar (1959) "- to name but a few - are by no means a figment of the imagination.
The mass grave Chréa, in the province of Tebessa, with no fewer than 651 dead bodies says a lot about "the work accomplished by France in Algeria"
(El-Watan of May 14, 2005).

Did comparison of  genocides absolves the criminals?

         Returning to the Franco-Turkish crisis, Mohamed El-Korso considers that the French attitude in this case is "schizophrenic": "France is used to give lessons to others, then it would be better to teach her own. It's a schizophrenic attitude. We recognize the crimes of others, but not his own crimes. Sarkozy invited each country to look at his past and to draw appropriate conclusions. Is that France has the courage to look his? Instead, they established a foundation for the writing of history to whitewash the crimes of colonialism. "
        
Professor El-Korso notes that "it is the French Parliament is writing history." He recalled the episode in this case the law of 23 February 2005 recognizing the "positive role" of colonialism and the passing of a law on the harkis.
         Mohamed El-Korso welcomes the position of the Turkish Prime Minister. "Erdogan's attitude is worthy. It's a real shock,"
he enthuses. The French attitude vis-à-vis Turkey is not culturalist, but highly political. It is a provocation. Erdogan and the reaction is a measure of this provocation. "
         For him, the timing of that Act betrays the "electoral referred."
"Sarkozy is clear these issues on the eve of every presidential election, as was the case in 2005. Sarkozy had finished his presidential campaign in southern France, Montpellier, Perpignan and Toulon, home to many Blackfoot and former members of the OAS [Organization of the secret army]. France has never had a president as provocative ", asserts there.

France / Mali: The misfortune of being called Moussa Traoré in France.

 
Moussa Traoré was officially cleared of the crimes he did not commit. For seven years, his record of convictions focused mention that the authors were homonyms.
         In fact, this man of 1.81 m for 67 kg suffering from wearing a surname as common as Smith in his country in France. And many children of his generation as he was named in honor of former President Moussa Traore of the Republic of Mali from 1968 to 1991.
         One day, he walks at Les Halles, near the Fountain of the Innocents. Routine control of the police. The Malian identify himself. "An officer shouted, he committed a crime!, It has become muscular. I did not understand. I had my metro ticket and my papers ...".
         The police were confused with a homonym stuck to organized crime. It will take two hours to post to clear up the confusion.
"When I went to see the police, they said  16 Moussa Traore were known to the French court,"
said one who arrived in France in 1999 for his studies.

Habitual criminal without his knowledge!

         Moussa Traoré discovers his habitual offender status when he applies for a job as a security guard. The position is denied: he would have sentenced between 2000 and 2002, three convictions, including ten months in prison for fraud. He falls from the clouds. "I have never been cautioned to view, I've never been in jail in my life ..."
        
On two of his convictions, the identity is indeed the same, but the dates of birth, parents and the homes do not match.
         In addition, at the time, Moussa was on vacation in Mali as shown by his passport.
         The Chancery has cleared a terse formula: "I confirm that to date, no conviction is registered on your criminal record."
         This 29 year old Malian lives in Magny-les Hamlets in the Yvelines in France. Married to a French woman, Olivia who gave him two children, he does not stop there.

Seven years of hassle for nothing!

"A formula diverted to clear seven years of hassle ... I'm seeing lawyers to attack the French state. I do not ask for pity, just that the state recognize its mistake."
        
He holds a law degree, he saw the situation very badly, "My father was one of the first atomic engineers in Mali. Today, my family does not understand why I failed. It is humiliating. Yet I am not an illegal immigrant. I came to France regularly. "
        
Now that justice has recognized his mistake, he hopes to resume his life to the place. He is preparing to integrate a school to become a special education teacher.
         "In June, I received written and oral, but was told that it was not the time to introduce me in September if my record was still dirty"

Dominica: A republic divided into parishes.

 
Dominica (Commonwealth of Dominica officially) is a small island country of the Lesser Antilles 751 km2. It is located between Guadeloupe and Martinique.
         Discovered Sunday in  1493 by the Genoese Christopher Columbus, the island received the name of Dominica (Sunday in Spanish). Predominantly Catholic and Anglican, the island is divided into 10 parishes.

France: A candidate for President of the Republic wants to restore the monarchy.

 
         Mr. Patrick de Villenoisy is  candidate of Royal Alliance to the presidential election of 2012. Founded in 2001, the royalist movement dreams of restoring the Monarchy Royal in France.          
 The royal alliance feels the only political party able to "reconcile the French" with their country and provide real answers to the challenges of the twenty-first century.
         The political platform of the royal alliance believes that democracy is confiscated by the French party system.

A radical change of institutions

         Resume of the Fifth Republic constitution by substituting a king to the current President of the Republic by giving him similar powers with some modifications.
         The royal alliance takes just the analysis of the writer and pamphleteer Jean Gwenaël Dutour (1920-2011) whose  apartment in
Paris was blown by a bomb on July 14, 1978 and was elected to the French Academy on November 30, 1978.
   "The downside is that the president ... is not hereditary, he is not the symbol of the country, but of division. With a king who is the son of his father and little son of his great Father, we avoid this kind of civil fury. The king is not elected by the people at some point in his history, but the chosen man for centuries. His power is based on something much stronger than a fad of universal suffrage, he relies on what is strongest in the world: custom. Royalty has a paternal side which is exactly appropriate to the function, which is found nowhere else, not even in a monarchy disguised as a republic such as we have. The king is a father, if not eternal, at least, permanent. "

The royal alliance treats the presidential election like a civil war!

         For a year, the alliance believes that the campaign divided the French into two camps and destroyed the social cohesion that the elected president must rebuild after his election. A period of uncertainty and economic expectations resulting in a waste of time.
         As expected, the rise of Islam is seen as a consequence of secularism. The royalists thus propose a return to Christian France, returning to its mission of eldest daughter of the Catholic Church.
         The Return of the King  "Impartial arbitrator"
is the right solution to ensure the long term, social cohesion, solidarity and pride related to the history and Christian morality.

An advantage of the peace or going to war?

        
Today, France is accused of Islamophobia and Turcophobia by the authorities of Ankara due to a bill by the French National Assembly penalizing the denial of genocide (including the 500,000 Armenians). In response, Ankara accuses France of having committed genocide by eliminating 15% of the Algerian population in 1945!
         Enough to feed the debate on religion in France, where Islam has become the first confession before the Christian religion.

What
King of France means the Royal Alliance?

         "The King is the arm of justice by excellency. He is the best to exercise this sovereign function knowing that it is essentially independent of the oligarchies not subject to any party but to serve the people under his charge throughout the generations. "
(http://www.allianceroyalenievre.com)
         "Thus, once the reforms adopted, the President-elect called the prince who has the consent of the French and will give him power.
Thus, the king will not be coming from a Republican election: it makes no sense. The king can not enter into a political game, because he must be preserved from partisan strife to remain able to embody the unity of France. Of course, after more than a century of the Republic, the establishment of a king will not happen without the French: it will be an encounter between a prince and his people, and when the time comes, the choice is imposed on its own. "
        
The last monarch of France, the French Emperor Napoleon III, deposed September 4, 1870 acceded to the throne following the coup of December 2, 1851. Or King Louis-Philippe 1st, Bourbon, King of the French (not king of France) who reigned from 1830 to 1848? and then Charles X, last king of France and Navarre? Or the princes dispossessed,  Henry X of France, Count of Orleans, is the last man to have claimed the throne of France?

Why  they do not eat cakes?

         The French people ever forget the image of nobility snob associated with Marie Antoinette Habsburg-Lorraine (1755-1793), suggesting that the poor, lack of bread, had to eat cake or the related to the apocryphal statement of Louis XIV: "The State is me"?
        
Besides few people know that this statement meant to illustrate the gap between the classes and the nobility: a princess can not imagine it was because of the outcome that people wanted bread, she invites them to eat a pastry, more expensive than bread. This sentence, quoted without naming the princess by the Swiss writer Jean-Jacques Rousseau (1712-1778) in his “Confessions”, published in 1782.
         The text of Rousseau: "About the little things that I flyable not even looking, I thought to covet some white wine of Arbois ... and the opportunity that I had put up with from time to time few bottles to drink at my ease in my little particular. Unfortunately I could never drink without eating. How to get bread? It was impossible to put in reserve. Make purchase by the footman, was detected me, and almost insult the master of the house. Buy it myself, I never dared. A fine gentleman sword by his side go to a bakery to buy a piece of bread, it could it be? Finally I remembered the last resort of a great princess to whom it was said that the peasants had no bread, replied: Let them eat cake. I bought cake. Although ways to come to that! Left alone in this view, sometimes I walked throughout the city, and was passing thirty pastry before joining any. "

"Equality, Liberty, Fraternity"
        
         The principles of the French Revolution that put an end to the excesses of the monarchy are not only upset the French societies, but served as a model copied all over the world. In Europe, Asia, America and especially in the former French colonies. Some countries such as Romania included them in their national colors.
         Back to royalty in France would be regarded by the citizens of the Free World, a setback for democracy in the world. Reduce French influence in its hexagonal dimensions, means exclude or expel from its territory, the French from elsewhere who contribute and have contributed so much to its rich economic, cultural, political, social and human.
         Royalty "unlikely" to Patrick Villenoisy would it not a utopia, or a hypothetical policy to enrich a campaign that proved to be difficult during the hard years through which the French people is living?           
Those who support this policy only dream of back their privileges, their titles of nobility and the material benefits attached to it, in a world that longs for more freedom, equality and fraternity.

Myanmar / USA: San Zarn Bo predicted a second term for President Barack Obama.

 
In January 2009, the astrologer San Zarn Bo, well known in Burma (Union of Myanmar) predicted the reelection of U.S. President Barack Obama in 2012.
         According to the Burmese astrologer, the cards show him a sign of Emperor for Barack Obama. Born under the sign of Leo, it is meant to be leader.
         However, the star showed a series of attacks would be held against U.S. President in 2009, 2010 and 2013.
         Attacks that fail fortunately for the black president since the birth date of the President, that is to say, August 4, will act as a talisman to protect him.
         He also predicts that a danger threatens the U.S. Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton unspecified.
         Asked whether the president will help the Burmese people to overcome their problems with U.S. sanctions against the military dictatorship of Than Shwe, he said that a person born on August 4, defends the weak.
         Barack Obama won the presidential elections in the United States November 4, 2008. Its official entry into office was held January 20, 2009.

Cuba / USA: "The empire of lies" by Fidel Castro.

 
         In 2007, Fidel Castro accused Washington of misleading world opinion and to conceal information about "what really happened" during the September 11 attacks, in an article published on the sixth anniversary of the tragedy .
         "Today, it is many years since the painful episode. We learned in the news that there was a deliberate misinformation. (...) The most dramatic feature is that you never really know what happened, "
writes the Cuban president, remote (?) of power for a year by the disease.
         Under the title "The Empire of  lies,"
Fidel Castro, whose text was read on national television in the daily program "The Round Table," cites a series of allegations which, in his eyes belie the American version of events, including the attack against the Pentagon - he concludes: "We have been deceived as all the inhabitants of the Planet"

And if Washington had really lied about September 11, 2001?

         "The calculations of the steel structure, the impact of the aircraft, the black boxes recovered and what they revealed do not correspond to the criteria of mathematicians, seismologists, information specialists and demolition specialists," writes he said.
         Fidel Castro was also heard on the day of the attacks "in the basement of the towers were deposited some 200 tonnes of gold was about to open fire to kill anyone who tried to enter by force ".

         Before reading the document the Cuban president, was broadcast on national television, a documentary giving emphasis to "conspiracy theories"
based on the theses of the French journalist Thierry Messan since become an expert for Human Rights to the Conference on Security and Cooperation in Europe (CSCE) after the publication of his best-seller in 2002 "The Big Lie.” , "Which challenges the attack against the Pentagon”.
        
He is thus the only head of state (or former head of state) to formally accuse Washington of lying about attacks on "World Trade Center" that shook America and the world by using the survey of a foreign journalist. Unless this is the French journalist who was used by the Cuban secret service to write his book!
Fidel Castro, the leader who most often lost on American conspiracies!


         Fidel Castro Cuba still remember that Washington had offered to provide medical aid in the attacks and that in the past, Havana had advised President Ronald Reagan in the preparation of an attack against him.
         In return, the Cuban president regret, Washington has "developed hundreds of plans to eliminate him physically."
        
Since coming to power in 1959, Fidel Castro was "the person that has often tried to assassinate. "
        
In 2011, he entered the "Guinness World Records" and the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) with 638 attempts by Cuban site "www.cubadebate.cu"
         "The methods used to kill him were many, but all have failed: snipers, explosives in his shoes, the venom injected into a cigar to a small explosive charge in a ball of baseball, including"
, identifies the site.

Japan: The last "Kamikaze" of Fukushima.

 "No, I'm not crazy" answers Naoto Matsumura, those who wonder why this farmer, 52, who lives alone in the "No man's zone" of Fukushima. The farmer refused to leave his farm located 12 km from the Fukushima Nuclear Power Plant which since March 11, 2011 continues to emit radioactive substances.
         Indeed, just days after the nuclear accident caused by the earthquake followed by tsunami on March 11, 2011, Japanese authorities decreed "the area where he lives"
No Man's Zone "over 20 Km2.
         He decided to make the resistance and not to stir from his farm. He lives alone near the deserted town of Tomioka, amid hundreds cats, a dozen dogs, some 400 cows, many pigs and chickens abandoned by their former owners who had fled the fallout.

Matsumura is he a superman or a persistent unconscious?

         He is aware that he takes daily doses of radiation are lethal, but says he simply afraid of the lack of cigarettes, "I certainly will fall sick if I stop smoking" .
         In October 2011, the Association for the monitoring of radioactivity in the West (Acro) analyzed dust vacuum of 12 homes located within 200 km of the plant. "All this dust contaminated with cesium 137 and 134 as a result of the disaster at Fukushima,"
says Hérouville laboratory based in St. Clair, in the north-west France, in a statement.
          Contamination "most important"
("almost" 20,000 becquerels per kilogram) is recorded in the District of Watari "located fifty kilometers of the plant, where the sale of rice has been banned," explains the association created after the Chernobyl nuclear disaster in 1986.
         But "the houses are contaminated significantly"
to limit the scope examined is 200 km from the plant, even in the suburbs of Tokyo, with "nearly 6,000 becquerels per kilogram," according to Acro.

How does he survive in no man's land?

         Matsumura is deprived of electricity, it uses sparingly the fuel they buy in town to his truck and generators. It is heated with coal but abandoned by its neighbors shouting that the amount is no longer enough for the winter, which promises to be cold in the region. His only luxury and unique relationship with the world's mobile phone.
Nato Matsumura is divorced for 10 years. His two adult children (21 and 23 years) living in Saitama Prefecture, near Tokyo. They are worried about their father who refuses to listen. Accompanied by his dog, he spent half the day feeding the animals.
         He eats mostly canned food and rice, because everything that grows on the ground is contaminated.
"I never depressed. I learned to live alone. I get up with the sun and go to bed early, around 19:00, because I have nothing else to do. "
He regularly travels outside the restricted area to buy cigarettes and a living.
         "Some Japanese media have tried to make me look foolish by telling that I was eating contaminated mushrooms. But in reality, I pick them up to give researchers a laboratory. I'm not crazy,"
he repeated.
         But it seems in good health, despite the harsh conditions of life he has chosen. He fears that all his animals perish, "These animals need human beings. The power I have at the moment is not enough to take until the end of December. They need shelter and food, but I'm the only one to take care of them, then it should be the role of government, "he said.

Matsumura and future of  his beloved region.

         He wants the government or the power company "Tokyo Electric Power (Tepco)," owner of the nuclear power plant Fukuyama, shall as a minimum for rendering animals. But he used the same song, "Sorry, Mr. Matsumura, we can not do anything inside the forbidden zone."
         This means that if he dies, he will not even have the right to burial. He is convinced that Tomioko, like other towns in the area evacuated, will disappear from map of Japan. This is perhaps another reason to hate the company Tepco, "I do not want to see the plant restart a day I want her to disappear."


It will take about 40 to dismantle the plant.

         In about two years, the pools of fuel will begin to be disabled, but the operation will last several years, during which will also be strengthened cooling systems for reactors and pools as well as various facilities.
         The extraction of molten fuel in reactors 1 and 3 will be for its implementation in ten years and will last two decades.
         In both cases, techniques are needed, said Mr. Hosono, the situation of Fukushima is unprecedented, with destroyed buildings, a high level of radioactivity, and fuel fell in whole or in part on the concrete floor of the 'confinement in three of the six reactors of the complex.
         "We need to make this work by avoiding the generation of new risks,"
stressed the Minister of Industry, Yukio Edano.
         The Japanese government provides only the dismantling of the site will not be completed until about 40 years.
         If Mr. Naoto Matsumura lived long enough to see it, he will be the "Robinson Crusoe of  Fukuyama”
when he will have 92 years!
