Baghdad hell hasn't turned into home heaven
Motto: "Before becoming history and even before taking place, a lot of major events are prepared in laboratories"
The three hostages have returned home. But they are not free yet. As for Muhammad Munaf, he was to face Bucharest authorities who even announced intention to retain him. But in the last minute the Americans took over. It is to be seen the conclusions reached so far by the three secret services collaborating...
Don Quixote, Dissident
It is now four centuries since the birth of a masterpiece whose author and hero both seem younger than we do. The simplest explanation for this may be found in Flaubert's words about Don Quixote: "I found my origins in this book, which I knew by heart before I learned how to read." Indeed, at the core of Don Quixote is something essential that we knew even before we read it but which became part of our nature only after we completed its mesmerizing...
Analyses in SRI villa
Unofficial sources claim that the three Romanian journalists who returned to Romania yesterday will go through quarantine in a protocol villa belonging to SRI (the Romanian Secret Service). This decision is meant to provide the three journalists with all they need to be at ease. Marie-Jeanne Ion, Sorin Miscoci and Ovidiu Ohanesian will undergo preliminary medical analyses that will detect eventual medical problems coming up during the 55 days of captivity. The same...
Talpes makes tricky move
In the very day when the three journalist arrived to Romania and were taken over by authorities for questioning and quarantine, the man who used to be head of the National Security Department during Iliescu's rule resigned from PSD (the Social-Democrat Party). His motivation was at least strange: because of the way party members treated Iliescu. The ex president doesn't even know about the decision of the ally who sacrifices political career for his sake. PSD is...
For now, Basescu as great winner

Separation from Socialists
The separation of PD (the Democrat Party) from the world's Socialist families seems to be only a matter of time. Traian Basescu's former party is daily showing more and more obvious signs of separating from EPS (the European Socialist Party) and the Socialist International. PD members can't forgive EPS for having provided constant support to PSD (the Social-Democrat Party) during the election campaign in 2004. Now PD is rather angry with the decision ESP reached...
POLITICS IN BRIEF
Cabinet ministers to be replaced in June
Tariceanu's Cabinet might go through staff changes after the PD (the Democrat Party) National Convention due in late June, say parliamentary sources. This is despite the fact that PNL (the National Liberal Party) does not seem willing to agree to this initiative. Bad administration of the flood crisis and the healthcare system crisis as well will be some of the main reasons for asking Prime minister Calin Popescu Tariceanu to consent to...
