Brave New Media World 2007

Its a new media world where blogs have made journalism a public affair
and where private video production has found its entry to the sphere of
public entertainment.

And even the world of professional journalism has changed since CNN,
a pacemaker on the field of TV news, got a new and powerful competitor:
AL-JAZEERA International TV, the English service of the Arabic station
in Qatar, now broadcasting from Washington and Kuala Lumpur as well
as from Doha and other places, has added a strong Asian note to the
more U.S. based agenda of CNN.
Nevertheless, the Arabic station in Qatar remains an important source
of information when it comes to the development of the Middle East.
As their website already showed, the Arabic service is by far more
specific than the English service which had been established only two
years ago. Opinion polls on the Arabic website not only use different
questions on the same subject but attract a different kind of people as
well; Arabic speaking Muslims with strong roots in the region. Such,
the Arabic service still deserves being observed !

Whatsoever, BLUEPRINT magazine will continue to track any source
of information that seems reliable enough to deliver accurate facts on
the crucial subjects BLUEPRINT is dealing with.

Wolfgang Wiesner, the editor of BLUEPRINT magazine
who wishes you a Happy and Peaceful New Year 2007.

a new era rising - es una nueva época

"The people of Venezuela celebrating an overwhelming victory of
Hugo Chávez Frías, candidate of the Bolivarian Revolution. All of
Venezuela united in the celebrations." (Live transmission by Cuba-
vision TV on December 4, 2006)

Hugo Chávez, just having won the elections in Venezuela
with an overwhelming majority, is now able to continue his
strategy based on a socialist draft and directed against
that special kind of imperialism which has been triggered
off and conducted by the Bush administration. Seen in the
frame of a political landslide towards socialism, now to
be observed in other countries of the Latin-American
sphere as well, there is undoubtedly a new era rising.

Guantánamo Again !

While Al-Jazeera is reporting about a righteous doctor from Afghanistan
who has finally been released from Guantánamo, German media are
presenting a German detainee, Mourad Kurnaz, who had been held in
U.S. custody in that same prison, despite everyone knowing about his
innocence. As high-ranking members of the German military staff seem
to be involved, now being accused of having hindered Mourad's release,
a parliamentary showdown is likely to make its way. Furthermore, accu-
sations launched by Mourad himself have it that German KSK special
troops lent a hand in his torture. Even though there is strong evidence,
all that still needs to be proven in detail.

Update Oct. 23, 2006:
The "Extremists" Fighting Terrorism

While the Bush administration is looking at some Latin-American coun-
tries as the strongholds of extremism in that part of the world, those
countries are now developing their own strategy to fight terrorism. In-
cited by Cuba, the parliamentary assembly of Latin-American states
discussed the draft of a framing law, dealing with the fight against
"This draft exposes the double standards of antiterrorism. Its point of
view is to analyze the nature of [terrorist] actions and their reasons.
Therefore, the Latin-American assembly watches carefully the double
increase of offenders in the prisons of its countries... A United Nations
observer considered that in the "Al-Qaeda prison" of Guantánamo Bay
human rights are violated and humanity is endangered. ....."

North Korea - Welcome to the Club !

"Yesterday the Devil came here,
right here. And it still smells of
sulphur today."
(H. Chavez after the inauguration
speech of U.S. president G. Bush,
opening the new round of sessions
of the U.N. general assembly.)

After North Korea entering the club of nuclear lunatics ....
What the world needs now, seems to be a decent nuclear weapon's "test",
launched by our special friend George Bush and directed against North
Korea or the Islamic Republic of Iran or Cuba (as long as Castro is still hospitalized) or, let's say, Venezuela (to punish president Chavez for hav-
ing smelled the Devil in the United Nations assembly). At least, everybody
should know that there's only one single gentleman on earth entitled to
pull the trigger. If its not for Holy Oil it might be for the benefits of a
Holy War against terrorism. Therefore, hurry to buy your share in the
weapon's business to be among the guarantied winners !

As to this subject, here's a special offer that reached me by email:


GOING PUBLIC Tuesday, OCT. 9th, 2006


DEFENSE DIRECTIVE (ticker: DFSE), a major manufacturer of
weaponized chemicals and anti-terrorism detection devices will be
going public Tuesday, 10/9. The products that Defense Directive
creates are used in each major airport in the U.S.A., and the com-
pany has important long-term government contracts to furnish the
U.S. military with DFSE's equipment.
Talk about a company with products that's in high demand! DFSE's
military contracts will guarantee this company an impressive revenue
stream that simply won't be ignored.
This IPO is certain to generate massive interest from the investment
community, as well as valuable media coverage due to the current
turmoil in the Middle East.


Now have a nice day (it might be your last),

Reconstruction of some Main Sites

Like its editor, BLUEPRINT magazine is growing older.
Therefore, some reconstruction has become necessary.

All Arabic sites will be available from
one single entry page, such that suffi-
cient space on the BLUEPRINT main
page can be saved for the addition of
brandnew subjects.

During the time of reconstruction there
might be daily changes to the layout of
my magazine as a result of optimization
efforts. Nevertheless, all subjects still
remain accessible from the main page.

Best wishes from BLUEPRINT editor.
