Re: Temporary unemployment at Brussels Airlines?

Temporary unemployment indeed starts: as from next week.

Re: CASA crash in Haiti kills 11 military

You are right: that comment surprised me : "The UN doesn't mount a military surveillance mission over hazardous, difficult terrain for nothing. More pointedly, a Stinger-type missile can be fired by even a determined 12-year old. Which might explain why the UN observers went on foot, rather than us...
