President to speak on NPR Radio Monday - Don't miss it

Mr Hersey Kyota The Ambassador of the Republic of Palau, (he's been there 10 years this November) those tireless supporters of Israel at the UN, kindly writes to us to explain that President Tommy E. Remengesau will be interviewed on NPR Radio's "All things Considered" Show on Monday, June 4th. Specific details may be available at NPR's website at http://www.npr.org/templates/rundowns/rundown.php?prgId=2. The interview will also be re-aired several times during the month of June.

Readers may share this opportunity live in the USA but far flung listeners with an interest in quite why a Micronesian Island Group so assiduously supports every vote at the UN for Israel may possibly be disclosed in this interview. For example when the UN approved a resolution on a 150-6 vote demanding Israel dismantle its West Bank Wall (the most important resolution of the General Assembly since the adoption of U.N. Security Council 242 November 22, 1967 ), Palau was one of 4 countries (, Australia, the Marshall Islands, Micronesia and Palau) that joined the U.S. and Israel in opposition. Official biographies explain that "Ambassador Kyota’s interests include fishing, reading, playing baseball, basketball, chess and video games."

There is no need to provide an RSVP but should you wish to contact the Embassy you might wish to call The First Secretary Mr Wayne Wong - Tel 202-452-6814 or FAX 202-452-6281 or E - MAIL info@palauembassy.com

An interesting article here on their US born permanent representative at the UN Stuart Beck, a Manhattan television company executive. It may be a comic opera state but it's really not so fucking funny.

The real function of these islands is to act as a target for rockets from Kodiak AL and Vandenburg Missile Base AL - An anti-missile interceptor launched from Vandenberg AFB will attempt to intercept a mock warhead launched from Kodiak, Alaska later this year - possibly August . This test is very similar to the test conducted on September 1st 2006 when the test was delayed from December-January to allow for software changes and upgrades to the interceptor. The test was attempted on May 25th 2007 , with a scheduled flight test of the long range missile defense system by the Missile Defense Agency but was aborted not completed and designated a "no test" when the target, launched from the Kodiak Launch Complex in Alaska, failed to reach the defended area, and the Ground-Based Interceptor, which would . should have come from the Ronald W. Reagan Missile Defense Site located at Vandenberg Air Force Base, Calif. was not launched.
