But as a cache of documents captured by Colombian security forces from a guerrilla redoubt in 2009 confirms, this was no ordinary rebel. The file is a new piece of the puzzle surrounding the woman, whose real name is Tanja Nijmeijer and who is capturing the imagination of her adopted land, Colombia, and her home country, the Netherlands.
“She’s one of the most fascinating figures in our long war, present at many of its critical junctures over the last decade,” said León Valencia, a former guerrilla here and one of the authors of a newly published book about Ms. Nijmeijer. FULL ARTICLE

What happened in Srebrenica 16 yrs ago today was an unspeakable tragedy. Future generations should be educated about this event as well as the 25,000 Serbs & 9,000 Croats killed during the war. They should also be educated on how Islam was forced upon the Balkans via the savage Ottoman occupation during which converts were given tax breaks and other benefits while Christian Serbs & Croats were brutalized for 500 yrs.

Earlier that morning the farmers daughter had inadvertently left the gate to the yard open as she was preoccupied by her worry over a maths test set for that day. She hadn't studied for the test as she was still deeply distressed over her fathers recent heart attack. This, coupled with the added burden of household chores now delegated to her because her mother was out trying to get the west field prepared for sowing, had made her quite forgetful and distracted of late.
Whilst several chickens escaped, only one strayed so far that it actually encountered the road facing the farm. After crossing the road and gorging itself in a soybean crop, the chicken was struck by a furniture removers van as it attempted to make its way home.
Several hours later the dead chicken was spotted by a Community Mental Health Worker who was doing his bi-weekly rural clinic run. The chicken, being a bantam caught the eye of the Mental Health worker, who was a keen trout fisherman.
"Cool" thought the mental health worker- "those feathers will make for excellent trout flies". He stopped and plucked a handful of the most iridescent blue, green and orange feathers and placed them in an envelope. He rolled himself a cigarette, sat on the trunk of his car and admired the clouds. "God, I love this job", he muttered to no one in particular.
