Pakistani Military Torpedoes Pro-U.S. Govt.’s Case On Mumbai
Two public officials – the Navy chief and a deputy attorney general – together have destroyed Rehman Malik’s case of ‘admission of guilt’ in Mumbai attacks. The government has fired the deputy attorney general for taking a stand, but no one in the Pakistani media noticed since it is busy in the latest Pakistani political circus. But it is this story that could unravel this staunchly pro-U.S. setup.

Pakistan: Sharif Playing Dirty, Again

Nawaz Sharif has suddenly discovered that Zardari has illegal assets and is not a graduate. Why did Mr. Sharif not raise these issues when he was developing a new ‘brotherhood’ with the country’s number one criminal? If he knew all this from the start, and he did, then Mr. Sharif is such a buffoon that he no longer remains mentally qualified to assume any major public office. He should probably stop believing in fairy tales because this one could possibly bring down the entire country and not just the PPP.

The coming war between India and China
India has been buying weapons and trying to build them for decades. It has been buying junk from Moscow (Flying Coffins) and has been unable to produce weapons on its own. The list of Indian failures is long. Kevari Engine, Tejas LCA, Trishul, Nag, Agni Arjun and Brahmos are a few examples of the total failure of the Delhi arms.

The Mumbai Attacks and the Militaries of the USA, India and Pakistan
A senior Pakistani government official has said that “One of the biggest fears of the Pakistani military planners is the collaboration between India and Afghanistan to destroy Pakistan. Some people feel the United States is colluding in this.” Some commentators suggest that the United States is financing militants in order to tie down the Pakistani army and leave the way open for an American advance into Pakistan.

Ron Paul: We killed a million Iraqis and that pleased Bin Laden
The conservatives attending this week’s Conservative Political Action Conference are generally hawkish when it comes to foreign policy, but they applauded Rep. Ron Paul (R-TX) on Friday when he told them the US has no choice but to get out of Iraq.

Poll: Muslims overwhelmingly oppose attacks on U.S. civilians
Though it is certainly a step in the right direction, it takes a few steps back when those opposed to killing US Civilians agree with al-Qaeda’s principles. For you see if the Muslim Countries were truly opposed to the killings, they could and CAN stop al-Qaeda in it’s tracks!

Afghanistan: US thinks the unthinkable: asking Iran for help with supply routes
It has been a grim couple of weeks for the snack lovers of Camp Phoenix. First Doritos, then Snickers, now Coca-Cola: all have disappeared from the usually packed shelves of the camp store. They were among the more expendable supplies lost when the Pakistani Taleban set fire to containers bound for US bases in Afghanistan close to the Khyber Pass.

Multi-billion Dollar Mining Boom: The economics of war and empire in Afghanistan
In 2002, the US Geological Survey (USGS) published a list of more than 1000 deposits, mines, and occurrences in Afghanistan to confirm the country’s wealth of mineral and hydrocarbon resources. Among the minerals found in abundance are gold, copper, iron, mercury, lead, and rare metals such as cesium, lithium, niobium, and tantalum. Tantalum, which is also known as coltan, is a rare element essential in the manufacture of cell phones, computers, and digital cameras. Lithium is necessary for high-tech batteries, specialty glasses and ceramics, and for some high-performance metal alloys. Niobium is used in steel alloys. According to Afghan geology expert, John Shroder, writing in a 2007

GeoJournal article, oil and natural gas reserves identified by the USGS far surpass earlier Soviet estimates.

The “Great Financial Crisis”: A whole new kind of struggle is emerging
The financial crisis is quickly turning into a political crisis. Already governments in Iceland and Latvia have collapsed and the global slump is just beginning to accelerate. Riots and street violence have broken out in Greece, Latvia and Lithuania and worker-led protests have become commonplace throughout the EU. As unemployment skyrockets and economic activity stalls, countries are likely to experience greater social instability. How does one take deep-seated discontent and rage and shape it into a political movement for structural change?
