In Memory: Oscar Romero

Today is Wednesday, 24 March 2010.

On this date in 1980, Óscar Arnulfo Romero y Galdámez, Archbishop of San Salvador, was assassinated in that city as he celebrated Mass.

The murder was orchestrated by Roberto D’Aubuisson, an American-trained (the infamous “School of the Americas”) former major in the Salvadoran army. Romero was a fierce critic of governmental repression and terrorism. His act which precipitated the murder was to call upon Salvadoran soldiers, as Christians, to refuse orders for atrocities and violations of human rights.

BTW: The lies of Ronald Reagan and other Republicans, that Jimmy Carter as President was the quintessential “97-pound weakling” allowing Comminism to kick sand in America's face, combined with the obfuscations and lies of Carter himself, have served to conceal the latter’s role as a true soldier of Yanqui imperialism during the Cold War. Carter supported many terrorist states, including El Salvador, Somoza’s Nicaragua, Pinochet’s Chile, and Shah “Aryamehr” = “Light of the Aryans” Pahlavi’s Iran.

All honour to Romero, and all other victims of Yanqui imperialism.

Steve McQueen, King of Cool, was born on this day in 1930. Bullitt is one of the greatest movies. Died so sadly young, at 50.
