Gates of Vienna News Feed 12/30/2010

Gates of Vienna News Feed 12/30/2010A terrorist bomb exploded in front of a court building in Athens, doing damage to buildings and cars. Although no one claimed responsibility for the explosion, it was obviously not the work of Muslims, because a warning was phoned in to a TV station before the explosion, allowing evacuation of nearby buildings and preventing injuries. Anarchists or communists are the most likely suspects, just as in previous bombings in Greece.

In other news, the Chinese have effectively outlawed skype by banning internet phone calls. Facebook, Twitter, and YouTube are already illegal in China.
