They just got a different tool to use than we do: They kill innocent lives to achieve objectives. That's what they do. And they're good. They get on the TV screens and they get people to ask questions about, well, you know, this, that or the other. I mean, they're able to kind of say to people: Don't come and bother us, because we will kill you. Bush - Joint News Conference with Blair - 28 July '06

Chile's Pinochet loses immunity

DW-world: Chile's Supreme Court has lifted the legal immunity of former dictator Augusto Pinochet. The decision clears the way for Pinochet to face criminal charges related to the disappearance and murder of at least 15 leftists in a 1975 human rights case known as Operation Colombo. It was the third human rights case in which the high court has removed Pinochet's immunity from prosecution - a privilege of former presidents. The immunity issue must be resolved on a case-by-case basis. Link
