  • [01] New Start &High Expectations

    In his inauguration address, the 44th US President Barrack Husein Obama promised to take immediate actions to deal with the financial crisis and make a new start in US relations with the rest of the world. Officially assuming his duties on Tuesday, the first African-American to be elected in the country's highest post, admitted that the challenges he had to face were many and serious but sent a message in and out of the US that his aim was to build and not to destroy, promising a change in US previous policies towards the Muslim world. Addressing over two million people, who have gathered in Washington to attend the inaugural ceremony, Obama among others attributed the financial crisis to irresponsibility and greediness of factors in the market. He will indeed take immediate action as he will discuss a support plan with his economic advisors today. Meanwhile, White House chief of staff Rham Emanuel memorandum calls federal services and ministries to halt regulations on pending cases until legal and political inspection is completed. It should be also mentioned that the newly elected President has ordered 4-month suspension of Guantanamo military court trials.

    [03] Under the Microscope of Antiterrorism Body

    Society

    In a multi-page proclamation sent to "To Pontiki" newspaper, the "Revolutionary Struggle" organization claims responsibility for attacks against Riot Police squad in Exarheia, where young policeman Diamantis Mantzounis was injured, Riot Police bus on December, 23, in Goudi as well as an unsuccessful bomb attack against an oil company in Faliro.

    The Eharheia attack was the response to 15 yo Alexandros Grigoropoulos death says the proclamation. The Anti-terrorism Body is already examining the proclamation of the Revolutionary Struggle organization.

    Use of violence is condemnable whatever its source is said government spokesman, Evangelos Antonaros. "There is no excuse and I will not waste any time on texts by some who want to justify the use of violence" said Mr. Antonaros.
