2. I'd like to know who sold them the electronic weapons, rabs. I'll bet we know already.
This is sickening.

I already expected them to use it against war protesters during the stolen Presidency by Bush.

I just heard that high-pitched screech played on Telesur. I linked to them after seeing your post. It's goddawful. Hope people find a way to jam it or block it somehow.

3. Here's a pix of the thing ..



You think maybe the gorilettis got it at Radio Shack? :evilgrin:

Just heard that resistance is telling followers to postpone going to Tegu until tomorrow. Many people have been detained or turned away at checkpoints on the highways leading to the capital.

Nurse reading names of 17 people who were beaten early this morning at Brazilian Embassy.

Cannot find yet whether Insulza has arrived in Tegu.

4. What a creepy machine.I wish he & his pal could be pesuaded to drag it over to serenade Goriletti.
That's truly a sadistic toy. Hope it will backfire on them.

Beating supporters in public. That's very ugly. Hope the soldiers will start turning away from harming their countrymen/women.

Thanks for this news.
