Man Faces Trial For Using The President's Poster As Toilet Paper

A Zimbabwean man recently landed himself in trouble after he allegedly used President Robert Mugabe's campaign material as toilet paper, a report said on Wednesday.
According to the report, the man appeared in court last week charged with violating the electoral act or, alternatively, destruction of political material.  A public prosecutor told the court that on 24 July this year, Takura Mufumusi entered a bar toilet in Masvingo with the intention to relieve himself. While inside, he was spotted by the informant, tearing up Mugabe's poster which he found inside and allegedly using it as toilet paper. The informant immediately effected a citizen's arrest on Mufumusi and took him to a police station. Court papers, however, did not state if Mufumusi was arrested after he had already relieved himself. Magistrate Tinashe Ndokera adjourned the matter indefinitely as the State could not identify the witness. -

FRAUDULENT WAR: US condemns chemical attack in Syria, but they did the same earlier in Iraq

Lately US President Barack Obama claimed the ‘red line’ for the US to consider a more definitive response against the Syrian regime would be “seeing a whole bunch of chemical weapons moving around or being utilized”. At the same time there is evidence that the US themselves used weapons containing poisonous chemical substances during its invasion in Iraq. More than that, Great Britain, a long-time US’s ally, supported the North American nation in that. Another US’s ally, Israel, has also been spotted in the use of chemical weapons.

Testimony from victims strongly suggests it was the rebels, not the Syrian government, that used Sarin nerve gas during a recent incident in the revolution-wracked nation, a senior UN diplomat said Monday.
Carla del Ponte, a member of the UN Independent International Commission of Inquiry on Syria, told Swiss TV there were "strong, concrete suspicions but not yet incontrovertible proof," that rebels seeking to oust Syrian strongman Bashar al-Assad had used the nerve agent.
But she said her panel had not yet seen any evidence of Syrian government forces using chemical weapons, according to the BBC, but she added that more investigation was needed.
