Bush Calls the Powers in The Middle East "Fascist"

Today President Bush announced that the war against Iraq and possibly Iran is a war on “fascism”! Is he kidding? He moves his troops half way across the globe, invades other countries, kills innocent people, ravages their resources, calls them an “Axis of Evil” simply on the basis that they wont sell their oil to the US with cheap prices, and then, he calls them Fascist? Bush is stepping in the footsteps of Hitler but pointing the finger to someone else and in case your wondering, what Israelis, the American’s best friend, did to the Lebanese is simply nothing but genocide! But the Americans don’t think so! Why? No one will admit that they are the followers of Nazi, it simply cant happen to them. Hitler was a crazy man who killed a bunch of innocent people, but Americans have reasons to “defend” themselves against the “fascists”! Way to get brainwashed!

John Karr is Released

Remember those days that CNN suspended its coverage on Israel- Lebanon war to break the news that the murderer of JonBenet Ramsey has been captured? Well as it turns out, John Karr, the evicted murderer was not guilty, just a fanatic who wanted to get famous. DNA testing has failed to put him at the crime scene and Karr is released from the Boulder Jail until further developments.

State of Emergerncy

Patrick Buchanan on CNN today expressed his anger towards illegal immigrants while introducing his new book, “State of Emergency”. Buchanan was absolutely annoyed by all the illegal immigrants who come to America and acquire jobs. But there was a bigger twist in his opinion. Just as the Americans had taken away Texas from the Hispanics by over population, Buchanan has reasons to believe that the Hispanic will take California away from the Americans. He specifically pointed out to a soccer game incident where the Mexican fans cheering for their team, made fun of the Americans. Buchanan further expressed that these people immigrate to the US just to get better jobs but don’t respect the Americans. He said, “there are millions of people around the world who want to become Americans. These are the people who should come to America rather than those who immigrate just to find jobs”!
Are there really a lot of people who want to become Americans? Isn’t it true that even Americans use Canadian flags while traveling to prevent getting bashed? And isn’t America the “land of dreams”? The very basis for people’s immigration to the US is and has been to get better jobs, not to become Americans! Quite frankly with all the American foreign policies I don’t believe that anyone would want to immigrate to the US solely to become an American. The Hispanic immigrants are the very people that were kicked out of their land by the Americans. Now they have return to their home land, work and pay taxes to the US government. Is it so wrong for people to hold their beliefs without becoming brain washed in the American melting pot? Why can’t the Americans tolerate anyone but themselves?

Oprah Makes the Americans Proud

The talk show host Oprah Winfrey is in Johannesburg, South Africa today to see the fruits of her $40 million project, aimed at building a school for good students who are underprivileged. The school called the “Oprah Winfrey Leadership Academy” is scheduled to open in January and to enroll about 450 students who will also be provided the textbooks, uniforms and meals, all for free!
The initial lay out of this plan started i5 years ago after Oprah had a talk with Mandela about spending $10 million to build a school for under privileged. The project has come a long way since then and has evolved to a big and expensive development. Oprah herself has hand picked all the students through and interview. In an interview with CNN she expressed a euphoric sense of happiness for giving this appropriate gift to Africans.

Goose With Arrow Through Body

Now this is weird! A goose in Jackson, Mississippi becomes the target of an illegal hunter who shoots it with an arrow. The goose is still alive, it swims, walks and flies. The officials believe that the goose is in pain and have made several attempts to capture it and give it medical treatment but have failed so far. Watch the video!

Iran Involved In Iraq?

Over and over again the Western Media has emphasized the involvement of Iranian Militias in Iraq preventing the American troops from maintaining peace. Today Iraq’s most powerful politician, Abdul Aziz Al Hakim has dismissed the claims by US officials that Iran is interfering in Iraq’s affairs. Hakim claims that he has for three years ask the US officials to provide proof for their accusations, but so far there has not been any responds by the Americans! Aziz further states that the Americans “ are looking for somebody to blame for the failure [of the U.S. military to halt the sectarian killings in Iraq] and it is easy to blame Iran." Pointing the finger to an outside help initially began when the sectarian violence in Iraq became evident. Each side ( Shiite and Sunni) started accusing the other of getting outside help. Sunni leaders claim that the Shiite militias are trained by Iran, and Shiite leaders say Sunni terrorists are funded by Saudi Arabia and Syria. This unrest between the two religious groups grant an excuse to the US troops to point their fingers at the accused countries. But this is really a civil war between the supporters of Saddam, majority of whom are Sunni and the new democratic government in Iraq who are Shiite. It is a power struggle between the past and the current government.
Leaders like Hakim say that rather than blame Iran or the Shi'ite militias, the U.S. military — and Iraqi security forces — should be focusing its energies on defeating the mainly Sunni insurgent and terrorist groups. "The main cause of the violence in Iraq are the Saddamists and [jihadi terrorists]," Hakim said. "We should not be distracted from our main task, which is to destroy these forces. "

Ex Al Qaida Member

If you watched CNN’s situation room on Wednesday, you might have seen an interview of a 23 year old Abdolrahman Khadr, who was born in Canada but had moved to Afghanistan with his family to be brought up in the Al- Qaida camps and become a suicide bomber. His father was reportedly an associate of Osama Ben Ladan and Abdolrahman himself had even played pranks on the most wanted man in the world. He claims that as a kid, he always asked a lot of questions with regards to being a suicide bomber and there was never any concrete answer to his curious questions so he lost faith in the cause. After the occupation of Afghanistan by the American troops following the events of September 11, the members of Abdolrahman’s family were either killed or sent straight to the Guantanamo prison without trials. Abdolrahman was captured and agreed to co-operate with the FBI in order to escape jail time. Abdolrahman explaine that for a number of years he worked for the FBI and he was even asked to go to Iraq, but he refused. He describes working for the FBI very much similar to working for the Al Qaida. “ No one ever answers your questions… you should just do what you are told… very much similar to how Al Qaida operates”. Abdolrahman decided to quit the FBI just as he did Al Qaida and now hopes to live a quiet life!

Condom Party

India is the second largest country, after South Africa in which people contract the HIV disease. To prevent the disease from spreading further the authorities have established campaigns in which safe sex practices are encourage. The campaign specifically targets truck drivers who are most likely to engage in sexual behaviors with prostitutes while traveling. Watch this hilarious clip with Indian guys dancing with blown up condoms and Indian music.

Terrorist Attack On Taj Mahal

As you know these days it is the trend for every country to come up with some kind of threat of terrorist attack and India is no exception. Soldiers in and around Taj Mahal have been on guard as the officials have received a letter threatening to blow up this beautiful 17th century monument. The letter is reportedly written by a group that supports Al-Qaida but the exact source of the letter has not yet been verified. New Delhi government has issued 100 additional soldiers with weapons to guard the complex. As for tourists, the monuments is not closed but there has been warnings issued with regards to carrying liquids.
The majestic domed monument was built by the Mogul Emperor Shah Jehan between 1632 and 1654 for his favorite wife, Mumtaz Mahal. It houses their graves and a mosque, as well as several graves of lesser Mogul royalty. Considering that the complex is a mosque it is hard to believe that Muslims would blow it up. There are still speculations with regards to the letter being real or just a prank!

Israel Bombs Gaza

Are these guys completely incapable of embracing peace? They move their troops up and down and bomb their neighbors just for the heck of it. Their is a ceased fire achieved with Lebanon so lets take the military to the south now and while we are at it kill some Palestinians in Gaza!

60 Minutes Interviews Ahmadinejad

As the war between Israel and Lebanon comes to an end and as Iran approaches the 27th of August, the date which is marked as the day that Iran should stop enriching Uranium, Iran becomes a hot topic on the news. Incidently, CBS showed an interview of Mike Wallace asking President Ahmadinejad about Israel, Bush, Nukes, Iran's position in Iraq and it's support of Hezbollah. I have to say that up until now I thought Ahmadinejad was as dumb as they come ( I of course reside outside of Iran and the news I get is out of CNN and CBS), but this interview changed my mind. He had rational answers and was polite and professional in respond to Wallace’s anxious, angry and scattered questions. I especially liked the part when Wallace directly ordered the president to answer a “yes or no” to his questions and the president said, “well sir you ask a question that is about 3 minutes and you expect a yes or no answer? Is this a multiple choice test or an interview?”
Through out the whole interview Wallace asked questions without listening to answers, and this just proved the presidents intellectual superiority and Wallace’s incompetence, as a Western interviewer who had not done his homework and was completely biased and close minded going into the interview. One part of the interview was especially interesting to me. When asked about why the president called holocaust a myth he answered, “what I said was, if this is real, where did it take place?… In Germany. "Well, if an atrocity was committed in Germany or Europe for that matter, why should the Palestinians answer for this?" the president asked. "They had no role to play in this. Why on the pretext of the Holocaust they have occupied Palestine? Millions of people have been made refugees. Thousands of people to-date have been killed, sir. Thousands of people have been put in prison. Well, at the very moment, a great war is raging because of that." And Wallace’s respond was, "Look if you could — if you could keep your answers concise. Concise. I beg you. We'll get more questions in”! And the last question was, "You have a special unit of martyr seekers in your revolutionary guard. They claim they have 52,000 trained suicide bombers ready to attack American and British targets if America should attack Iran." Ahmadinejad’s reply was, "So, are you expecting the Americans to threaten us and we sit idly by and watch them with our hands … tied?" I guess now we know why president Bush "dismissed" the 18 pages letter that Ahmadinejad wrote to him. Quite simply if Bush had to talk with Ahmadinejad he would be bombarded with facts he doesnt like. For him war is simply more profitable than sitting down and listening to Ahmadinejad quoting Jesus on how Christians should act! If you are further interested you can read the whole interview, or Watch parts of it on video!

Middle East Cease-Fire In Effect

The time has finally come for the Israeli troops to Leave Lebanon and for Hezbollah to stop sending rockets to Northern Israel. People finally get to breath and feel safe, at least temporarily to drive to their homes or find lost families. Many still worry about what is yet to come and are buying food and gas to prepare for yet another war. But here is the catch! As the Israeli troops left Lebanon this morning about 8 am, they distributed leaflets everywhere in Lebanon which says " blame Hezbollah for bringing destruction, displacement and death". Well thats just great. Thank you for killing innocent people and then pointing the finger to someone else! It's like what James Zogby says. What Israel is doing is similar to someone raping a girl and then blaming her for wearing a short skirt!

A Terror Plot Foild in US

Well incase you haven’t noticed yet, all the Arab’s or better said “none- Caucasians” around the world and especially in US are suspects of plotting terrorist attacks! Three men were arrested today in Michigan for buying about 1,000 untraceable cell phones. The men claim that they bought the cell phones so they can re-sale them and make money, but the US authorities have so far accused them of plotting to blow up the Mackinac Bridge in Michigan. The Bridge is about 5 miles long and it connects the two Michigan Peninsulas. The suspects are two brothers, Adham Othman, 22, and Louai Othman, 23, and their 19-year-old cousin, Maruwan Muhareb. The three men are now being held at the Tuscola County Jail. If your an arab and you live in the states please dont breath, otherwise you will be arrested!I will update you about their condition as the news develops.

Iraq To Become A Three State Union

The elevating problems in Iraq has got some politicians thinking that dividing Iraq into three states is the best way to go! The Anti-war US politicians believe that here we are announcing that we are at war with terrorism yet, our troops are in Iraq caught in the civil war. So their solution is to divide Iraq into Shia, Sunni and Kurd sects and let them each have their own government and military system. This way Iraq would be like all those little countries who were once part of the bigger Soviet Union who are now struggling to strive and controlling and exploiting them would be much easier for the West. Excellent Idea! Needless to say, that all these groups that are currently at war with each other in Iraq, used to live harmoniously in and around each other while Saddam was in power. But US doesn’t like to see a country in the middle east getting to strong and independent, so, the very minute they feel a power growing in the middle east they make some sort of excuse to get themselves involved. The same thing happened with Iran during the 1979 revolution and will probably happen again in the next couple of month as Iran too is becoming a major player in the middle east! So from now on, not only we are going to be hearing about the wars between Israel and Lebanon, Israel and Palestine and Israel and Egypt, we are also going to be hearing about wars between the Shia, Sunni and Kurds of Iraq. And while these poor bastards are busy fighting each other, US sells them its outdated military units and exploit’s the oil.
To read more about the role of US in Iraq also read Terrot Managment in the War Zone and Bush's Democracy is Worst Than Saddam's Dictatorship! Oh! and dont even get me started on the irreplaceable archaeological sites that were destroyed during this war, and the antique treasures of middle east, held in Baghdad's Museum that are now LOST! Lost they are, but in 10 years we will find them in the Museums of England, US and all around the world. To read more go to the National Geographic News.

UN Approves End to Conflict While Israel Expands Military Offensive

Today the UN unanimously voted in favor of putting an end to the conflict in the Middle East. While the UN was coming up with a resolution to end the fighting, Israel has ordered a massive ground invasion of Lebanon up to the Litani River. The Israeli Security Cabinet is hopeful to sign the six-page UN resolution but they have about 24 to 42 hours to "disarm Hezbollah", or kill more innocent people and damage more cities. Hezbollah has not responded to the proposal yet, but it is assumed that since they have representatives in the Lebanese cabinet, by signing the resolution they are agreeing to the terms of the peace! The measure calls for the unconditional return of the two kidnapped Israeli soldiers, increasing the number of UN troops in the area to about 15,000 and to disarm Hezbollah by both destroying their weapons and cutting their supplies from Syria and Iran.
With all the political developments the war is still not over for the Lebanese and they are still holding their breath. The ground invasion by Israel would also lead to more death on both parties, and even harder resilience from Hezbollah and more ruthless behavior from Israel as they reach the end of the war. Many believe that the ground invasion is unnecessary since so far Israel's attempts to disable Hezbollah's rockets shot into Israel has failed. Every day the same amount of rockets are sent to Israel, even though Israel has claimed Lebanon almost up to the Litani River! The war has so far cost about 2.5 billion dollars for Lebanon and it will take years to rebuilt this young country.

Airports On High Alert

24 men of Pakistani origin have been arrested overnight in Britain, acccused of plotting to blow up about 10 jets with American passangers simultaneously! The officials have compared this plot to the 9/11 conducted by Al Qaeda. But some say this could be what is called a home grown terrorist action. These days one doesn't have to be a part of Al Qaeda to act like one. All they have to share with them is the idealogy. Among those who were arrested, two of the suspects had recently traveled to Pakistan where they were provided with money. One suspect was a Muslim charity worker and a Heathrow Airport employee who had an access pass to all areas of the the Heathrow airport. The plan was to mix an sport drink with a gel like substance to make an explosive cocktail that could be ignited with an MP3 player or cell phone. As many as 50 people were involved in the plot and authorities have made a number of arrests in Pakistan as well. All the Airports have raised the terror threat level to "severe", and there are delays and cancelled flights, especially to the United States. Could have this been a real threat or another excuse for Bush and Israel to prove their mass murder of innocent people legitimate?
The threat of this terrorist attack provoked new rules in the airports with respect to what the passengers can and can't take with themselves on the plane. Here is a list of items banned abroad planes in Britian:
• All liquids, except medicine and baby formula verified as authentic.
• Food bought at airport.
• Handbags.
• All electrical and battery-powered items, including laptop computers, mobile phones and iPods.
• Electric key fobs.
• Wheelchairs, except those provided by airport.
Items permitted in cabin, carried in clear plastic bag:
• Pocket-size wallets and purses containing money, ID and credit cards.
• Passports and tickets.
• Prescription medicine and medical items.
• Glasses and sunglasses, but not cases.
• Contact lens holders, but not lens solution.
• Baby formula and milk, but contents of each bottle must be tasted by passenger.
• Diapers, wipes, creams for infants.
• Tampons, sanitary napkins and tissues, but not boxes.
• Keys.

What Do Israeli's Think About the War

Just the look at the interviews here and there, the Israeli’s are saddened by the loss of family but believe that the Israeli troops should stay in Lebanon and fight until Hezbollah is disarmed. One man even made a comment that he thinks for every Israeli killed 10,000 Lebanese should be killed! I don’t know what makes the life of an Israeli more valuable and fruitful than the life of a Lebanese! I don’t know who disguises himself as the promoter of democracy while holding Hitler like ideologies either! Its tiring to see that Israel has used the excuse of “we are the chosen people” and the holocaust to enforce their will and policies on others. I am an atheist and don’t believe in God, religion or any of that load of crap, but if there was a god wouldn’t he create all his beings equally? What makes the Jews the chosen people and the Muslims the rag headed terrorists? The war in the middle east is presumably a war on states and not religions. But Israeli’s make it about religion. A Jewish clergy man whose name I do not recall at the moment had a meeting with the Israeli prime minister today, praising him on the war and promoting further killing of innocent people. Apparently killing innocent people just on the bases of being the “chosen people”, as he put it, is legitimate.

Terror Attack On UK

There are high alarts in UK today, especially in the airports as the London Metropolitan Police arrested several people thought guilty of plotting to explode devices carried abroad planes in hand bags. The threats were especially aimed at flights from Britian to the United States. This latest news will creat chaos in the airports today and new luggage rules have been presented. Hand bags will not be allowed into the cabin of planes and passengers will only be allowed to take a wallet, travel documents and other essential items with themselves inside the plane in a plastic bag. The accused individuals under UK costedy have not yet been linked to an special terrorist group, but I'll update you as the story developes.

Bloodiest Day For Israel

As the war between Israel and Hezbollah enters its second month, Hezbollah keeps hitting the targets and Israel keeps missing them with sites filled with civilians. Today Hezbollah militia killed at least 16 Israeli soldiers in a Lebanese town of Aita Al-Shaab. Israel responded by airstrikes on the suburbs of Beirut. The Israeli’s decided that a wider ground invasion is in their favor. A plan that will be followed in the next couple of days with the rest of the world still debating on the nature of the ceased fire. Arab nations have called the already written terms of ceased fire by US and Israel bias and call for a revision. They support Lebanon’s wish in that, for a cease fire to proceed all Israeli troops have to leave Lebanon’s territories. The Israeli’s troops conduct of placing an Israeli flag in Lebanese cities after “clearing them of Hezbollah” has been criticized heavily as an act of invasion and needs immediate attention. Also there have been reports of the Hezbollah militia to strike again from the cities that Israel has invaded and “cleared of Hezbollah fighters” , proving that the presence of Israeli troops in the area does not guarantee the destruction of Hezbollah.

The Death Road ( Violation of Geneva Conventions)

The southern city of Tyre on the south of the Litani River has been the subject of many Israeli airstrikes in the past 24 hours since it is believed to be the way from which Hezbollah smuggles its rockets and military ammunitions. Israel has simply announced that it will hit any targets ( cars, horses, donkeys) moving south of the Litani River. This leaves little choice for those trying to leave Tyre, so people are stuck! What Israel does is contradictory to what it says it wishes to do. On the one hand they say the troops encourage all the Lebanese in these areas to leave the cities, on the other hand they bomb any activities on the roads. This also makes the job of the UN and Red Cross helpers in the area very difficult as the president of the International Committee of Red Cross, Jakob Kellenberger, complained of the difficulties of arranging passages to southern Lebanon. He accused Israel of violating the Geneva Conventions and said that dropping leaflets into an area is not enough. He further said in a news conference in Tyre that , “By letting down leaflets you cannot get rid of your responsibilities under international law”. There have been talks about “freedom of movement” in the area in the near future. Meanwhile even a donkey on the roads is considered to be a potential helper of the Hezbollah militia.

Lebanon Offer’s To Help

The Lebanese official government has offered to send it’s troops down to southern Lebanon and stop the fighting on the condition that Israel leave’s Lebanon’s territories. Hezbollah has agreed to the plan but Israel and US are skeptical of the consequences. They believe that Hezbollah has announced its readiness to co-operate too eagerly which may be because the plan is to their advantage. They also worry because 30% of the Lebanese official army are the supporters of Hezbollah and this collaboration may further provide the possibility for Hezbollah to receive supplies from Syrian and Iran. The news of the readiness of the Lebanese troops to contribute came during the time when US was working on a cease fire plan. A plan that does not appeal to Lebanon. What Lebanon wants is for the Israeli troops to leave it’s territories. The Arab nations seems to be on the side of Lebanon on this issue which further delays the developments leading to a ceade fire!
