Newscast Week-in-Review 8.10.08

Monday, August 11, 2008

Again, a very simple podcast.  Just me talking for five minutes going over some interesting news pieces from the past week.  I had trouble reading the first one due to the way it was written (and I was too lazy to re edit it and correct my errors ;-) )

Tehelka (India): All The Wrong Men

Mail and Guardian (South Africa): Fear the wrath of the poor — Cosatu

Channel 4 News (U.K.): Georgia and Russia at War

Guardian (U.K.): Russian troops and tanks pour into South Ossetia & Russian troops close in on Georgian capital

    According to Bush, the Russian response is “disproportionate.” That is one heck of a strong criticism.

    Oh lordy.

    On the subject, it’s interesting to see the U.S. reaction to Kosovo declaring independence as compared to South Ossetia and how the U.S. responded in both cases. Plus, on how the U.S. and Europe responded to Serbs in Kosovo and Georgian’s in Ossetia.
