Kashmir which would have been part of Pakistan, from all conceivable logic but defying all norms of justice and morality, India forcibly annexed it as its “”Atoog ang””, and till today is reluctant to abide by the resolutions of United Nations which make plebiscite mandatory for the Kashmiris to decide their option. They would have naturally gravitated towards Pakistan. Three successive wars with India ? 1948, 1965 and 1971, besides running skirmishes on the LOC, were largely due to the illegal occupation of Kashmir and depriving its people the right to freedom…..Dr S M Rahman

What is driving this organized crime operation that is capable of killing a president at any time, much less members of Congress or putting anyone in the US behind bars on a whim? Money. Where does the money come from? The biggest source is $50 billion in drug money from Afghanistan that moves around the world, Gordon Duff

In keeping with United States President Barack Obama’s plan to start withdrawing American troops in a little over 18 months, Brown also declared that to fill the breach the strength of the Afghan army would be increased to 134,000 by October of this year and to 171,600 by October 2011. Corresponding enlargements would also occur in respect of the Afghan police. The template for Afghanistan is similar to the one utilised in Iraq, that of handover of responsibilities province by province to national security forces. ….Times of India

“”Israel is the criterion according to which all Jews will tend to be judged. Israel as a Jewish state is an example of the Jewish character, which finds free and concentrated expression within it. Anti-Semitism has deep and historical roots. Nevertheless, any flaw in Israeli conduct, which initially is cited as anti-Israelism, is likely to be transformed into empirical proof of the validity of anti-Semitism. It would be a tragic irony if the Jewish state, which was intended to solve the problem of anti-Semitism, was to become a factor in the rise of anti-Semitism. Israelis must be aware that the price of their misconduct is paid not only by them but also Jews throughout the world.”” Alan Hart

Zia made several proposals to make South Asia free of nuclear weapons but India spurned all his offers. No sooner the Soviet troops withdrew from Afghanistan in 1989 and the threat of communism evaporated in the thin air, it brought about fundamental change in the policies of USA in South Asia. Pakistan lost its strategic significance and its nuclear program once again became an eyesore. ……Brig Asif Haroon

US President Barack Obama has offered ?Enhanced Partnership with Pakistan Act of 2009? that states that Pakistan is a critical friend and ally to the United States in combating terrorism and promoting the social and economic development of Pakistan. The National Security Adviser Gen. James Jones, clarified US policy by saying that “”We can’t succeed without Pakistan, there is nobody who is under any illusions about this?. Ishrat Ali Khan

In short, NATO and American if interested in culmination of war on terror then they must ask India to stop interfering in Pakistan, Fresh elections under the arrangements of UNO be conducted and government should be handed over to the majority. Security concern of Pakistan should be rectified for establishment of permanent regional peace. Indian role be minimized and her 17 conciliates should be closed immediately….Zaheerul Hassan

The result would be a triple whammy for Uncle Sam: the expensive planes are given to Israel free, the technology is then stolen, and future sales vanish as our Israeli friends market their knock down versions of weapons systems reliant on the stolen technology…..Philip Giraldi

In fact, the ideology of Hindutva is being encouraged by the government officials. Besides, attacks on the other ethnic and religious communities including their establishments, appointment of extremist Hindus in top positions in various institutes and alteration of courses in accordance with the Hindu ideology have reflected the intentions of the BJP and the Congress rulers……Sajjad Shukat
