Medvedev's speech and general tensions

Over the last several years, the tensions between Europe and Russia have been increasing on topics ranging from trade to direct military confrontation.

It is well known, that a major part of gas and fossil energy used in Europe, originates from Russia and its controlled areas. It is also well known, that US has been planning to build a missile-defense shield all over the world - including areas bordering Russia. Russia has been complaining about the unjust situation that would follow such decisions.

President Obama

The election of Senator Barack Obama as President is truly a mile-stone in the history of today's world.
When I switched on my laptop this morning and connected to the internet I was greeted by home page spreads declaring Barack Obama to have "made history". For me this is huge.
This intelligent, family man is truly an inspiration to us all and I foresee a good time ahead of the USA if everything falls into place before the 20th of January.

Resurgent Roma Stun Chelsea

‘Goals change games’, or so the old adage goes.

Well Chelsea’s encounter with Roma this evening demonstrated this perfectly. Chelsea appeared to be in control before Christian Panucci lost his marker and put the Italians ahead.

What followed in the second half was in stark contrast to the first, as Mirko Vucinic added two more goals before John Terry grabbed a consolation strike to make it 3-1. The result leaves Group A wide open, with every single team in with a chance of making it out of the group and into the knockout stages.

Jeremy Clarkson has become the latest target for the PC brigade.

Change gear, change gear, change gear, check mirror, murder a prostitute, change gear, change gear, murder. That’s a lot of effort in a day.”
