an Interview Shows Futility of Afghanistan War

American Mums - pressure your Administration & take your kid home before it's too late: an Interview that Shows .... the Futility of Afghanistan War

rethinkafghanistan | September 28, 2010 - excerpt from an interview this week with Captain John Hintz which highlights the futility of the Afghanistan War. Capt. Hintz explained that, 9 years into the war, "I have probably 300 square kilometers. And the vast majority is controlled by the Taliban," Hintz explained. "We push hard, we patrol heavy, we go out there but I would say probably 18 to 20 square kilometers is what I think I own."

GORDON DUFF: WHAT AHMADINEJAD ISN’T TELLING US.

TERROR CONFERENCE IN TEHRAN WILL FALL SHORT OF THE MARK



AHMADINEJAD CALLS FOR UN INVESTIGATION OF 9/11

By Gordon Duff STAFF WRITER/Senior Editor


When President Ahmadinejad announced, before the United Nations that most people in the world believe that the U.S. government was involved in the planning and execution of the 9/11 attacks, he told the truth.  In America, groups have been popping up for years, not “fringe” types, but military and professional organizations, architects, engineers, pilots, intelligence officers.
There is a vast underground that is never reported, never spoken of in the news and continually threatened.  The FBI and Homeland Security have infiltrated these groups,  illegal surveillance has been on a massive scale and, as the groups have grown and their reach has touched millions of Americans, the government, in the usual whispers, is talking about mass arrests, “unplugging” the internet, all those things the militia movements of the 90′s said would happen.

Sophisticated Computer worm attacked Iran's infrastructures!

Iran´s main nuclear powerplant...

CNN reports 24 Sept. 2010.

A piece of highly sophisticated malicious software that has infected an unknown number of power plants, pipelines and factories over the past year is the first program designed to cause serious damage in the physical world, security experts are warning.

At a closed-door conference this week in Maryland, Ralph Langner, a German industrial controls safety expert, said Stuxnet might be targeting not a sector but perhaps only one plant, and he speculated that it could be a controversial nuclear facility in Iran.

According to Symantec, which has been investigating the virus and plans to publish details of the rogue commands on Wednesday, Iran has had far more infections than any other country.

What Arabs face in Israel!

Arabs face discrimination in Israel

AlJazeeraEnglish | September 25, 2010 - Discrimination faced by Palestinians living within Israel's borders remains one of the key sticking points in Middle East peace talks.

Umm al-Fahm is a town made up almost entirely of Palestinian Israelis - those who found themselves within the new border when Israel was created in 1948.

Israel's declaration of independence, the equivalent of a constitution, states that all citizens are equal but the one-fifth of the population who are Palestinian, believe they are less equal than others.

Al Jazeera's Dan Nolan reports from Umm al-Fahm, Israel.

Iran ready for 'fair' talks on its nuclear programme

Iranian Foreign Minister Manouchehr MottakiThere has been a flurry of diplomatic activity on the fringes of the UN General Assembly

Iran is ready to resume talks on its nuclear programme if they are "fair", Iranian Foreign Minister Manouchehr Mottaki is quoted as saying.
His comments came after the five UN Security Council permanent members and Germany said they hoped for an early negotiated solution to the dispute.
The UN has passed tough sanctions against Iran over its programme, which some fear is aimed at producing nuclear weapons.

Russia not to sell S-300 missiles to Iran

Russia will not sell its long-range surface-to-air missile systems, S-300, to Iran as they fall under UN Security Council sanctions against Tehran, the chief of the Russian Armed Forces General Staff has said.

“A decision has been made not to supply S-300s to Iran. [The air-defense systems] certainly fall under the sanctions,” Nikolay Makarov said on Wednesday, cited Interfax agency. He added that“there was an instruction from the leadership to stop the shipment and we are following it.”

General Makarov was also asked to comment on whether the respective contract with the Islamic Republic will be torn up. “Time will show. It will depend on Iran’s behavior,” he responded.

The deal, estimated to be worth around US$1 billion, was signed back in 2007. However, as yet no missiles have been delivered to Iran but the contract still has not been cancelled and the authorities are saying they are waiting for Iran’s reaction to the announcement, and how the decision is going to be taken by president.

Malaysia - oil royalty issue for Kelantan.

AlJazeeraEnglish | September 03, 2010 - In Malaysia, an opposition-run state government is preparing for a court battle against the federal government over more than a billion dollars in oil royalties.

The east-coast state of Kelantan is run by the Islam-based party Pas.

State officials say the federal government owes Kelantan the money under agreements made -- but not honoured -- by state-owned oil company Petronas as well as the federal government.

Islamophobia in the US.

Riz Khan - AlJazeeraEnglish | September 14, 2010 - Tension and acrimony marked the ninth anniversary of the September 11 attacks in the US. Relations between Muslims and people of other faiths appear to have slipped to a new low with the controversies over Quran-burning and the proposed Islamic centre near 'ground zero' in New York City. Is the US becoming increasingly intolerant towards Islam?

VoA : Referendum Vote Boosts Turkish Government - Interesting topic hidden motives!

VOAvideo | September 13, 2010 - Despite the decisive victory, there is still opposition over judicial reforms included in the referendum and concerns remain over the ruling Justice and Development (AK) party's Islamic roots. Dorian Jones has more from Istanbul.







Editor's Note: Listen to the line of report, isn't VoA praying for schism within the Turkish Civil society and in a self-denial mode that (it was not popular) Erdogan's had won with a touch of Islamophobia, rather different from UE's position!  VoA's concerns remain not only, over the ruling Justice and Development (AK) party's Islamic roots, but Turkey as an entity.

Robert Fisk: Nine years, two wars, hundreds of thousands dead – and nothing learnt!

Did 9/11 make us all mad? Our memorial to the innocents who died nine years ago has been a holocaust of fire and blood . . .

The World Trade Center site with memorial footprints of the twin towers visible Just five years ago – on the fourth anniversary of the twin towers/Pentagon/Pennsylvania attacks – a schoolgirl asked me at a lecture in a Belfast church whether the Middle East would benefit from more religion. No – less religion! – I howled back. God is good for contemplation, not for war. But – and here we are driven on to the reefs and hidden rocks which our leaders wish us to ignore, forget and cast aside – this whole bloody mess involves the Middle East; it is about a Muslim people who have kept their faith while those Westerners who dominate them – militarily, economically, culturally, socially – have lost theirs. How can this be, Muslims ask? Indeed, it is a superb irony that the Rev Jones is a believer while the rest of us – by and large – are not. Hence our books and our documentaries never refer to Muslims vs Christians, but Muslims versus "The West".

3 continuous days & more death !

AlJazeeraEnglish | September 13, 2010 - At least 18 people have been killed in demonstrations in the last 24 hours alone.

But the long simmering dispute over independence was not the only fuel for Monday's fury.

Anger about threats to burn the Quran in the US - led to attacks on Christian schools in the territory.

An American Politician says, the work of 1-man is not representative of American values. What about 20 men and 2/3 planes, is it representative of almost 2bil Muslims' values or the many poor and under nourish Afghans - LOL this is Absurd & outrageous.

Anti-Islam sentiment on the rise.

AlJazeeraEnglish | September 13, 2010 - Amnesty International asys anti-Islam sentiment is on the rise in the US. The human rights group has pointed to rising crimes committed against Muslims in the country including the stabbing of a cab driver in New York and attacks on mosque sites around the country. Is Islamphobia motivated by politics? Or is it just exaggerated and blown out of proportion by the world's media?





Editor's note:
1. The prolonged crisis is beneficial to the politicians for these issues will shift the public's focus from the serious economic problems that are causing  economic and social insecurity within the civil society.
2. The crisis also assist the far right is gaining a political audience that will be advantages to the right and capitalism as a whole.
3. It also channeled the main stream media away from the inconclusive evidence that "Muslims terrorist" caused 911, into a bandwagon that had accepted "Muslims terrorist" as the culprits and the guilty party.

There are also other serious problems that will be created such as:
1. The Muslim fighters in Afghanistan (they are not terrorists, they are just victims of US "blame game" and collective punishment exercises) are losing faith to accept negotiation and go into a diplomatic mode of conflict resolutions, for
i) The initial surrender previously resulted in numerous death in the transport by "containers scandal".
ii) The hideous and humiliating tortures endured by prisoners at the Guantanamo Bay detention center.
iii) The long wait or Obama's had renegade on his promise to close down Guantanamo Bay detention center.
iv) The court refusal to address the scandal of "terror flights" taking prisoners to third countries for detention and torture.
v) The non concerned attitude of US on Child and women being tortured as a result of being accused(not found guilty yet) of terrorist acts.
and now...
2. The hostile civil society towards Muslims and their beliefs - such as the burning of the Qur'an and stopping of mosques from being built.

Erdogan Wins Vote Extending Power Over Secular Rivals.

Sept. 12, 2010 - (Bloomberg) -- Turks approved a package of constitutional amendments in a referendum that will hand Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan and his government more control over the courts and military.
The changes were backed by 58 percent of voters to 42 percent against, with 98 percent of votes counted, state broadcaster TRT reported citing official figures from the country’s election board. The margin is larger than foreseen by pre-vote surveys. Erdogan’s own polls predicted the measures would pass with 55 percent support.

Turkey Referendum Today - MSM seems to be campaigning against it?

Turkey's referendum explained:

AlJazeeraEnglish | September 12, 2010 - Turkey has voted in a tightly contested referendum to change the constitution.

Tayyip Erdogan, the Turkish prime minister, said that the reforms will bring the charter more in line with European Union standards, boosting Turkey's membership bid into the bloc.

But opponents said it gives the government too much power over the judiciary.

Al Jazeera's Anita McNaught reports from Turkey.






Campaigning for a 'no' vote

AlJazeeraEnglish | September 12, 2010 - Turkey's referendum on constitutional reform will be put to the vote on Sunday. Its proposed amendments are proving divisive.

AlJazeeraEnglish | September 11, 2010   -  Tens of thousands of people across Indian-administered Kashmir have joined protests against Indian rule in the Himalayan region.

The Indian army has been battling to contain demonstrations for months, ignited by the killing of a 17-year-old student by police in June.

Turkey's constitutional referendum


11 Sep 2010  - Controversy and confusion shroud Turkey's September 12 constitutional referendum.



The plot lines leading up to Turkey's constitutional referendum on Sunday make for a complicated read.

On one side, the ruling Justice and Development Party (AKP), which opponents paint as Islamist, is urging a "yes" vote on a package of amendments that will promote individual and human rights, increase access to the courts, and decentralise judicial authority. The European Union (EU) has publicly supported the amendments.

On the other, opponents including the leaders of the Nationalist Movement Party (MHP) and the Republican People's Party (CHP), who stake their "no" campaign on top of a legacy of Turkey's secularising and modernising founder, Kemal Ataturk, now find themselves arguing against the amendments as anti-reformists.

And Turkey's Kurds, who arguably benefit most from the proposed changes that make it more difficult to ban political parties, having seen judges repeatedly throw their own representatives out of parliament, are boycotting the entire referendum.
