This is the news headline never reported before that US supplies conveys come under attack en route into Afghanistan.This is anther proof that puppet President Hamid Karzai have no control outside Kabul. Also this is the proof that Pervez Musharraf “war on terror” aggression has failed to gain the control of NWFP.
US politicians will keep claiming that they are winning the “war on terror” in Afghanistan and Iraq without any real success. Wars in these two countries will continue trying to keep these countries under occupation.

The puppet Afghan President Hamid Karzai threatening to send Afghan forces to fight Taliban into Pakistan does not have any control outside Kabul. This is a joke not a real threat. Afghans forces not very popular with the people of the country really can’t cross Pakistan borders. Hamid Karzai has made this ridiculous statement on behalf of occupation troops.
The Afghanistan situation will not improve if he take any such action it will become worst. The following news is interesting .
Taliban prison break ‘a small splash’
Interesting Hamid Karzai can’t protect his own country prison and wanted to attack Pakistan. Gordon Brown pledge to send more British troops to Afghanistan where 5 British soldiers were killed last week including 4 US soldiers. Taliban will keep fighting as long as it take to keep their resistance alive against occupation on minimum cost compared to US Britain huge financial logistic and occupation cost. There will be no clear victory for US and Britain in Afghanistan like Iraq and they have to withdraw at some point giving Taliban victory.

US is defending its air strike on Pakistani Military Post justifying it for their war on terror. Pakistani reaction is very strong calling is unprovoked cowardly attack.
The Pakistani army said the coalition airstrike hit a post of the paramilitary Frontier Corps and was a “completely unprovoked and cowardly act.”
It launched a strong protest and reserved “the right to protect our citizens and soldiers against aggression,” the military said in a statement.
This will create more tension in NWFP as well within the Pakistan Military making it more difficult to fight Bush favorite war on terror.

This is what John McCain foreign policy adviser said on Situation Room talking to Wolf Blitzer. The interview was so confusing that it was hard for me to determine what he is saying. Lehman lies very well stick with majority of Americans who will believe his lies just like CNN BBC propaganda that Ahmadinejad wanted to destroy Israel. Wolf Blitzer is on Zionist mission to promote lies for ground work for Iran invasion. The same propaganda campaign which lead to Iraq invasion, lies lies lies. The truth is that Al Qaeda and Iran can’t be allies because of their sectarian differences. Lehman lies will spread among the ignorant voters as truth voting for this old man John McCain, who is not a straight talking maverick but a liar crocked politician.
John McCain and Barack Obama are clearly going after each other with increasing vigor when it comes to foreign policy, specifically policy towards Iran. Let’s talk about that and more. John Lehman is joining us. He’s one of the foreign policy advisers to John McCain, a former secretary of the navy, 9/11 commissioner.
JOHN LEHMAN, MCCAIN FOREIGN POLICY ADVISER: Thanks very much for coming in, Mr. Secretary.
Pleasure to be here.
BLITZER: All right. Here’s a clip of what Obama is saying about McCain and we’ll talk about it. Listen to this.
SEN. BARACK OBAMA (D), PRESIDENTIAL CANDIDATE: The reason Iran is so much more powerful now than it was a few years ago is because of the Bush/McCain policy of fighting an endless war in Iraq and refusing to pursue direct diplomacy with Iran. They’re the ones who have not dealt with Iran wisely.
BLITZER: All right. Pretty serious accusation from Barack Obama. You want to respond?
LEHMAN: Well, you know, I think he doesn’t understand what the nature of summitry is all about. You don’t go and meet with the head of state until you have something very clear to say. You’ve either got to have a carrot or a stick. We know what Iran’s intentions are. We know they’ve killed a lot of Americans in Beirut and Saudi Arabia and now in Iraq. They trained some of the 9/11 conspirators. They gave them free passage to al Qaeda. What are you going to say if you go to a summit with them? Are you going to say either you stop killing Americans and supporting jihad around the world or we’re going to do something to you? Or do you say, we’ll give you this concession if you please stop being mean to us? That’s a very naive point of view.
BLITZER: Let me ask you, when McCain says that his policies, Obama’s policies meeting with an Iranian leader without preconditions seriously deficient, deficient a strong word, what does he mean by that?
LEHMAN: I think he means that we’ve seen what happens when new presidents go without an agenda to meet with — with adversaries. Senator Obama used the example of President Kennedy meeting with Khrushchev. That was a catastrophe. All historians now see that was a huge mistake to go without an agenda, a clear agenda.
BLITZER: What Senator Obama says, excuse me for interrupting, he says there would be no preconditions at the actual summit meeting but there would be a lot of advance work, a lot of preparations going into the meeting. What’s wrong with that? Why not have the lower level preparations to make sure everybody knows what’s going on but then when you go in, there’s no commitment in advance for preconditions?
LEHMAN: Well, obviously there has got to be preparations. But the point is what deal are you going to make? Are you going to — are you going to just sit down and say, OK, I’m prepared, I know all the bad things you’ve done and can’t we just be friends?
BLITZER: The U.S. meets — the Bush administration has had several meetings with Iran going back to right after 9/11.
LEHMAN: Sure. And we would continue to have discussions and — and very intense communication. But to bring the president in to give the dignity of the presidential office to a meeting with an extremist like Ahmadinejad without a clear deal being pre-negotiated would be a huge mistake.
BLITZER: Would John McCain as president, Secretary Lehman, do anything differently toward Iran or, for that matter, the war in Iraq right now than what President Bush is doing?
LEHMAN: I think very definitely.
BLITZER: Give us a few examples. First of all, how would he deal differently with Iran than the way President Bush is dealing?
LEHMAN: First of all, you have to look at the history of this. We’ve been sitting by and watching Hezbollah supported by the government of Iran blow up our marines in Beirut.
BLITZER: That was back in ’83.
LEHMAN: Right. Then a few years later blow up our Air Force people in Saudi Arabia and then to give training to al Qaeda prior to 9/11 and now to be providing these weapons to kill Americans with these shape charges, providing them to enemies both Shiite and Sunni.
BLITZER: What would he be doing differently towards Iran if he were president as opposed to President Bush?
LEHMAN: Well, I think what you’d see is a much more comprehensive overview of how everything fits together. And not treat everything as episodic. He would certainly not allow Iran to get off Scott free. That doesn’t mean —
BLITZER: He would have a more robust military strategy against Iran than President Bush? Is that what you’re suggesting?
LEHMAN: He would have a fully integrated strategy in which the military options like blockade and other options short of an invasion or a bombing attack would be integrated with the diplomacy in a larger picture?
BLITZER: Isn’t that going to scare a lot of voters out there who think John McCain might be getting ready for another military confrontation with Iran right now?
LEHMAN: No. Because he’s made it clear he’s not advocating an attack on Iran. He’s advocating treating them with the full range of an integrated policy that takes into view exactly what the whole picture in the Middle East is. And not allow them to kill Americans without paying a price. That doesn’t necessarily mean a military attack at all. We have plenty of levers beyond that. And it would be a return to fully integrated foreign policy and national security policy, which we haven’t seen for 15 years.
BLITZER: All right. Secretary Lehman, thanks very much for coming in. Let’s continue this conversation down the road.
Source : CNN Situation Room
Lehman, McCain foreign policy adviser, tried to link Iran to Al Qaeda, linked Iran to 9/11 which are new baseless allegations. There is no proof of Iran was anyway involved in 9/11 attacks like Iraq had nothing to do with that attack. Iran is not training Al Qaeda. Lehman get away easily because Wolf Blitzer did accepted all his allegations without correcting him. Wolf Blitzer Lou Dobbs Aaron Brown Paula Zahn all promoted the Iraq invasion and it look like they want US to attack Iran. These SOBs wants the US troops out of Iraq which proved to be disaster don’t know that it will be the worst disaster for US military and economy if they open another war front.
The following is Barak Obama adviser transcript.
Joining us now to discuss this and more, Obama’s senior foreign policy adviser, the former Assistant Secretary of State, National Security Council official Dr. Susan Rice.
Thanks for coming in, Susan.
SUSAN RICE, OBAMA SENIOR FOREIGN POLICY ADVISER: Good to be with you, Wolf.
BLITZER: All right. I will play you a little clip of what McCain said today. And then we will discuss. Listen to this.
MCCAIN: Senator Obama has declared and repeatedly reaffirmed his intention to meet the president of Iran without any preconditions, likening it to meetings between former American presidents and the leaders of the Soviet Union. Such a statement betrays the depth of Senator Obama’s inexperience and reckless judgment.
(END VIDEO CLIP)
BLITZER: All right.
I want you to respond, but remember, when — when Senator Obama made that suggestion at one of the debates, even Hillary Clinton said it was naive, not a good idea. Joe Biden disagreed. John Edwards did.
How does Senator Obama defend that decision to meet without preconditions with a leader like Ahmadinejad?
RICE: Well, first of all, he said he would meet with the appropriate Iranian leaders. He hasn’t named who that leader will be. It may in fact be that, by the middle next of year, Ahmadinejad is long gone. There will be elections in Iran.
BLITZER: So, let’s say there is a new leader.
RICE: But he said Iranian leaders.
BLITZER: But the words “without preconditions…”
RICE: Yes. Let’s talk about that.
The Bush administration and John McCain have for eight years taken the view that we should not deal directly with the Iranians unless and until they meet all of our conditions, meaning suspending their nuclear program. So, in effect, we want them to do everything that we would aim to achieve in negotiations…
BLITZER: But the precondition they put was for the direct dialogue over nuclear issues, they have to stop enriching uranium.
BLITZER: That’s the condition they put.
RICE: Before we will talk to them about their nuclear problem, they have to suspend their nuclear problem. That counterproductive precondition…
BLITZER: And, so, what would you do differently?
RICE: Is to talk to the Iranians.
BLITZER: At the highest level, president to president?
RICE: Can I…
RICE: Please. Thank you.
What Barack Obama has said is, with due preparation, after appropriate diplomatic contacts at lower levels, when it is appropriate time that serves our interests, he is willing to meet with Iranian leaders. He is not prepared to put preconditions on those meetings, like the Bush administration has, demanding that the Iranians do exactly what we seek to compel them to do before we even sit down.
That is naive. John McCain has backed a policy, Wolf, by the Bush administration that has made us less safe. It is Iran that is stronger today as a result of our invasion of Iraq and our failure to…
BLITZER: Because I believe the question at that debate is, would you be willing to meet during your first year of your presidency without preconditions with leaders in Iran, or North Korea, or Venezuela, Syria, something along those lines.
RICE: He said he would be willing. It doesn’t mean that he will meet all of those leaders. It doesn’t mean he will meet them all in the first year. What he will do, Wolf, is end the foolish and dangerous Bush policy of assuming that by dealing with our adversaries, we’re giving them some gift. Ronald Reagan, John F. Kennedy, Richard Nixon all understood, with respect to the Soviet Union and communist China, that we can advance our interests through principled strong negotiations. It’s only in the Bush administration that…
BLITZER: So, let’s be precise, because what they criticize Barack Obama, not only John McCain, but others, for suggesting that he would meet without preconditions with Ahmadinejad, who only last week on Israel’s 60th anniversary called Israel a stinking corpse. The question that they ask is, what is Barack Obama going to talk with him about?
RICE: Well, first of all, as I said, it will be the appropriate Iranian leadership at the appropriate time, not necessarily Ahmadinejad.
Secondly, we will talk to them about the issues that we’re most concerned about, their nuclear program, their support for terrorism, the threat they pose to Israel, their nefarious actions in the region, including in Iraq.
The point is to use a combination of serious pressure and sanctions and engagement to see if we can move them to a better place. The Bush administration’s approach is to refuse to negotiate. And what has that left us with, Wolf? An Iran whose nuclear program is steaming full speed ahead, Iran who is supporting Hamas and Hezbollah, who are stronger in the region, Iran who is more influential in Iraq than it’s ever been.
BLITZER: Here’s the other criticism that they level at — this kind of summit meeting between a president of the United States and a leader of Iran would only add to the prestige of a tyrant like this and making it easier for him to go and do his dirty deeds.
RICE: Well, first of all, you don’t go straight to a high-level presidential meeting. You do the preparation that’s necessary.
It’s not about prestige, Wolf. It’s about, what does the United States need to advance our national security interests and that of our ally Israel? The policy of the Bush administration backed by John McCain was to invade Iraq. That has left us less safe. It’s made Israel more vulnerable. It’s made Hamas and Hezbollah more powerful. It’s made Iran more powerful while it pursues its nuclear program.
That is a very dangerous, failed policy. The alternative is to withdraw responsibly from Iraq and deal with Iran from a position of strength. The alternative is they continue full steam ahead on their nuclear program. And that doesn’t serve our interest.
(CROSSTALK) BLITZER: And just to clear up, there’s no hard and fast commitment he would in fact if he were president meet in that first year with any of these leaders?
RICE: He said he’s willing to meet with these leaders, obviously, after preparation and at the appropriate time and when and as it serves our interests.
These are distortions, Wolf, that John McCain has found convenient because he knows that, if the American people are allowed to focus on his failed policies and that of George Bush, they won’t have a chance in this election. It’s all politics. And they continue to distort Barack Obama’s words and his intentions.
BLITZER: Secretary Rice, thanks for coming in.

Susan Rice was very rudely interrupted by Wolf whenever she try to explain Barak Obama foreign policy. Barak Obama foreign policy is very much understandable than the confused John McCain policy.

There will be no post for atleast three weeks. I will leave home tomorrow morning and will come back on weekend for couple of days. There are very interesting situation in Venezuela Constitutional Referendum on Sunday and Russia Parliamentary elections the same day. Putin is very critical from last few weeks accusing US government interference in their election process. Hugo Chavez is facing US backed tough opposition on his Constitutional Referendum.
Hugo Chavez will get the “YES” vote and Putin United Russian Party will win the two third majority in Parliament. This is my prediction.

Pervez Musharraf was put under pressure by Deputy Secretary of State Negroponte to restore the constitution and free political prisoners was rejected by him saying emergency rule is necessary to stop the nuclear-armed nation descending into chaos. The new election date announced is January 8, the opposition parties are threatening to boycott the elections under emergency rule. Benazir Bhutto spokesperson.
“The announcement of a date for elections means nothing because there can’t be fair elections under Musharraf,” Farhatullah Babar, spokesman for former prime minister Benazir Bhutto, said in a phone interview. “Before elections can be held, there needs to be restoration of the constitution, reinstatement of judges and Musharraf’s resignation as president.”
The U.S. has pressed Musharraf to hold free and fair elections and lift emergency rule. The U.S. says elections won’t be fair under emergency rule, this is really amusing that the elections in Afghanistan and Iraq were held under illegal criminal occupation which they consider legitimate and fair and Pakistan elections under Pervez Musharraf emergency rule is not accepted. This is hypocrisy.
The former cricketer turned politician is on hunger strike until Pervez Musharraf reinstall all the Supreme Court Judges. Imran Khan is complete failure as politician with his political party win one National Assembly seat which he himself win. It is better from him to die from hunger strike, which is not going to happen, instead of playing politics.
The US is trying to build gain support of Tribal Elders in Pakistan to fight Taliban and Al Qaida like Al Anbar province. The present situation in Pakistan tribal areas is in favor of Osama bin Laden and Mullah Omar. This effort can bring positive results with US giving the timetable of withdrawal, otherwise Taliban resistance will not stop.

The Bush regime is sending envoy to meet Pervez Musharraf to end the emergency rule and hold fair and transparent elections in January. The Bush regime also wanted Pervez Musharraf to be tough on their war on terror without realizing that is the main reason of Pervez Musharraf unpopularity loosing support of people. The Bush regime wanted the democracy and continue the war on terror which is not possible whoever get elected in January elections.
There was CNN Democrats Presidential debate last night where the front runner did not answer single question with honestly and intelligently, Hilary Clinton, Barak Obama, John Edwards responses were confusing, talking what people wanted to hear. Wolf Blitzer, the most biased dishonest person, was the moderator, completely ignorning Presidential candidate Dennis Kucinich who had the clear plan to bring stability to US, restoring America’s image in the world. Dennis Kucinich is the only Presidential candidate who had pointed out that the US policies are the main cause of Anti Americanism in Middle East and Muslim countries where they see these wars against Islam.
The front runners Hilary Clinton, Barak Obama, John Edwards with Chris Dodd, Joe Biden were answers on Iraq, Iran and Pakistan were similar to Bush regime promising not to let Iran build nuclear weapon, put more pressure on Pervez Musharraf to be tough in their war on terror, keep Afghanistan and Iraq under US occupation. Hilary Clinton might get the nomination of Democratic party because majority of Democrats believe that she has the best chances of beating Republican candidate in next general elections, just like when the Democrats nominated the wrong Presidential candidate John Kerry. Hilary Clinton might get the nomination but she will lost in next year elections.
The IAEA report on Iran Nuclear Program was due on Wednesday, which maybe made public which I have not read it yet. Bush regime and Britain Brown is wasting no time promising to be tough on Iran.

The military expert told Congress that Iran attack will have dire consequences for both sides. This was my point of view since the beginning that Iran attack will be suicide for US military and the country. The Iranians will face more deaths and destructions because of US air power and WMD, but they have to defend their country and honor if attacked.
What would happen if the U.S. launched a shock and awe style attack against Iran?
Members of Congress today put that question to top military strategists. The answer — dire consequences for both sides.
Let’s turn to CNN’s senior Pentagon correspondent, Jamie McIntyre — Jamie, not a very optimistic scenario.
What did they say?
JAMIE MCINTYRE, CNN SENIOR PENTAGON CORRESPONDENT: Well, right Wolf. You would expect a debate over the pros and cons of attacking Iran to have a mixed reaction. But this panel on Capitol Hill found basically very few pros and a lot of cons.
MCINTYRE (voice-over): Even with its military stretched to the limit in Iraq, the U.S. retains the ability to launch punishing air strikes against Iran — targeting both terrorists and nuclear facilities.
But what would the air war accomplish?
Not much, according to military strategists who testified before a House subcommittee on national security.
COL. LAWRENCE WILKERSON (RET.), FORMER ADVISER TO COLIN POWELL: The more widespread strikes, while devastating — they would be — would solidify a nation of 70 plus million people — a great number of whom are under 35 years of age — a nation that is anything but solidified. And the uniting factor would be nationalism and a visceral hatred for America.
COL. SAMUEL GARDINER, U.S. AIR FORCE (RET.): We can destroy three to five years of construction. We know how long it took to build those. But the effect on the nuclear program, we may accelerate it. As a strategist, I would say you don’t take military action when you don’t know the outcome.
MCINTYRE: In fact, the strategists argue, going to war with Iran would just reinforce the belief it must have nuclear weapons to protect itself.
PAUL PILLAR, FORMER CIA OFFICIAL: Many would see the U.S. action as a blow not against proliferation of weapons, but against a Muslim country with a regime that Washington doesn’t happen to like. So the dominant global consequence, in my judgment — especially in the broader Muslim world — would be an increase in anti-Americanism.
MCINTYRE: The experts predict the ranks of Iran’s Revolutionary Guard would swell, its support of terrorism would increase and any moderates would be undercut. Still, some experts argue the military option should not be taken off the table because without it, Iran simply has no incentive to compromise.
ILAN BERMAN, AMERICAN FOREIGN POLICY COUNCIL: Iran is not likely to bend to sanctions if it thinks all it has to do is weather sanctions and then there’s nothing else is coming down the pike. One of the world’s most dangerous regimes should not be allowed to acquire the world’s most dangerous weapon.
(END VIDEO TAPE)
MCINTYRE: But even the lone voice in favor of maintaining the military option as a threat called it “deeply flawed and dangerous” and says it has to be weighed very carefully about the situation of living with Iran as a nuclear power — Wolf.
BLITZER: All right. Source Link : CNN – Situation Room Transcript.

Pervez Musharraf “Emergency Rule” failed because of the US and European countries pressure not letting him handle the deteriorating violence situation with Iron Fist. He can control the situation with implementing the laws forcefully under emergency but under Western countries pressure is looking like a fool taking desperate steps of house arrests of opposition leaders and lifting up the house arrest orders on US and European countries. Benazir Bhutto knowing this weakness is taking full advantage of the situation with calling for rallies, playing victim, true representative of “Democracy” and now her political party terrorists are attacking police stations in Karachi. Benazir Bhutto also don’t want to share power with Pervez Musharraf threatening to boycott the January elections. Benazir Bhutto wants Pervez Musharraf to step down as Army Chief of Staff and President refusing to serve under him as the next Prime Minister.
Pervez Musharraf is facing opposition from Islamic Militants, Benazir Bhutto, Bush regime, Britain “sonofabitch” Prime Minister, corrupt “sonofabitch” Chief Justice Iftikhar Chaudhry and Nawaz Sharrif another corrupt Prime Minister who is determined to come back to Pakistan to join opposition agitation which will further escalate the violence.
The “Emergency Rule” exposed Pervez Musharraf weakness instead of giving him advantage and it will be sad that he lose power because of his own stupidity. Pakistan under Benazir Bhutto or any other selected government will be unstable without solving the root causes of the problems.

Pervez Musharraf government expelled three Telegraph reporters in retaliation to news paper editorial. The editorial, which was titled Bankrupt Relationship, described Gen Musharraf’s rule as a “combination of incompetence and brutality”.
Despite George W Bush’s rhetoric about freedom, the struggle against terrorism is provoking a reaction familiar from the Cold War and nowhere is that clearer than over Pakistan.
In the old parlance, General Pervez Musharraf is “our sonofabitch”. He has failed to stamp out extremist groups and close the madrassas that inspire them. He has allowed the tribal areas bordering Afghanistan to fall into the hands of assorted jihadis. And he has sacked independent-minded judges for fear that the Supreme Court declare illegal his re-election as president last month.
Yet, despite this combination of incompetence and brutality, America and Britain continue to back him as head of what has a strong claim to be the most dangerous country in the world. In order to broaden the government’s political base, their plan is for the general to doff his army uniform later this month and enter into a power-sharing arrangement with Benazir Bhutto, leader of the Pakistan People’s Party, after general elections in February.
If that ever comes to pass, it will bring together a soldier whose popularity has plummeted and a politician whose standing has been undermined by her willingness to cut a deal with him. And the prospects for its lasting are slim: Miss Bhutto and the military are like oil and water.
In short, the relationship between Gen Musharraf and the West is bankrupt. Valued as an ally after 9/11, he is now part of the problem. Under his dictatorship, Pakistan has become an increasingly ungovernable country in which moderate, secular forces have been sidelined to the advantage of the Islamists.
An alternative – an alliance between General Ashfaq Pervez Kiyani, the army chief designate, and Miss Bhutto’s secular rival, Nawaz Sharif – seems neither imminent nor especially enticing. But that should not blind Britain and America to the fact that their “sonofabitch” in Pakistan is a spent force.
# Pakistan’s High Commission sent the following response to this article:
“The language used for the President of Pakistan in your leading article (“Bankrupt relationship”, November 9) is offensive and flouts the norms of decent journalism.
“For a newspaper of The Daily Telegraph’s reputation to resort to such derogatory language is highly regrettable. This deserves an apology.”
The Telegraph has ignored the facts used biased hatred in this editorial. This is true that Pervez Musharraf rule is “combination of incompetence and brutality”, the incompetence was to blindly start the military operations in his own country after 9/11 to fight Osama Bin Laden and Mullah Omar killing hundreds of innocent civilians including children in Madrassas which backfired strongly against US occupation military in Afghanistan and Pakistan military incursion into NWFP. The brutality is too obvious to ignore, bombing civilian compounds, killing civilians women children. The most incompetent and brutal operation was Lal Masjid Operation Silence where he used unnecessary force killing over 100 male female students with the head of that mosque. Pervez Musharraf if had the intelligence and courage would have given better advise to Bush not to invade Afghanistan and accept the Taliban deal for handing over Osama Bin Laden to international custody for trial. This would have completely finished Al Qaida but Bush decided to go in wrong direction with all the world leaders following this idiot SOB including Musharraf.
The bottom line, yes Pervez Musharraf is incompetent brutal Bush “sonofabitch” as Telegraph called him but the forget to mention the biggest “sonofabitch” Tony Blair, John Howard, Azner, Amirs and Kings of Middle East.

Pervez Musharraf announced that general will be held by mid February instead of January, he again under pressure announce the election date after Bush talked to him on phone. Pervez Musharraf an Army General, is weak person who doesn’t have the courage to take firm stand on principles, or maybe he is so used to of obeying orders, of his superiors in military service, that he really don’t know any other way. Pervez Musharraf is not strong leader, he is good subordinate.
The Democracy will not solve the problem of rising violence in NWFP, where people are angry at Pervez Musharraf policies of interferce in their areas, aggressive attacks, setting up military check posts, killing civilians is the root cause of the problem. The people of NWFP are angry at Pervez Musharraf because they see him as Bush puppet who is killing his own people to please US. The situation in NWFP is very much similar to East Pakistan, according to my analysis, where military was seen as the oppressors, killing the innocent people to bring down the civilian uprising which created hatred towards military by loosing the support of the people. The situation in NWFP is not very different, Pakistan military lost the trust and respect of the people and the Islamic Militants are fighting them so effectively that the Pakistan Military (or Security Forces) surrender without any resistance. These Islamic Militants had captured soldiers and Pakistan Military Officers rank upto Colonel, and this means that they have the better strategy to fight Pakistan Security Forces and are more motivated than their opponents.
Benazir Bhutto, who is Bush regime next hope, to continue their stupid “war on terror”, has called Pervez Musharraf pledge insufficient and asked him to step down as Army Chief of Staff in a week. The Bush regime, US Senate, US House of Representatives, European countries are wrong in thinking that elections will bring down the violence in Pakistan.
Bush regime wants Pervez Musharraf to share power with Benazir Bhutto indicate that the elections will not be fair and transparent in Pakistan, because there is no chance of Benazir Bhutto winning the clear majority running on White House platform. The probability is that election results will be engineered with no political party having the clear majority. According to my analysis, National Assembly seats will be divided between Pervez Musharraf League (PML-Q) and Benazir Bhutto party, with no clear clear majority. Pervez Musharraf will name Benazir Bhutto the next Prime Minister sharing power with his own Pervez Musharraf League (PML-Q), which is the safest option for him to remain President of Pakistan and to satisfy the criticism of Bush regime and European countries.
Benazir Bhutto, after becoming Prime Minster, will try to be more aggressive in fighting Bush “war on terror” which will make the situation worst risking to loose power for the third time. Benazir Bhutto, like her father, is power hungry maniac, if try to bring down the uprising with force, the result would be the same like creation of Waziristan just like Bangladesh. The simple solution is that Pakistan leaders tell Bush regime that the “war on terror” can only be won with negotiations with these Islamic Militants. The military actions, bombing of civilians will create more unrest and there is no end to this conflict, because Pakistan Taliban, Afghan Taliban will keep fighting as long as it take to resist the US and Pakistan Security Forces.
Taliban are more popular in NWFP than US and Pakistan forces. Osama Bin Laden and Mullah Omar are more popular than Bush Musharraf and Benazir in that region.

This is Nancy Pelosi statement trying to hit Bush and Musharraf with one shot. Nancy Pelosi is typical politician who is holding on to power for too long, her statement is stupid, shows her ignorance, lack of intelligence, lack of analytical skill, total political rhetoric to gain some advantages in next year elections.
On Monday, in response to Pakistan’s President Pervez Musharraf imposing emergency rule and suspending Pakistan’s constitution, Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi issued a harsh statement condemning his actions and the policies of the Bush Administration toward him.
“For too long, President Musharraf failed to confront effectively his growing unpopularity. The Bush Administration enabled Musharraf’s delusion by ignoring his undemocratic acts and lack of internal support in exchange for his assistance in efforts against terrorism. Pakistan will only be a reliable and capable ally against terrorism when its government is not seen as an enemy by its own people,” said Pelosi.
Nancy Pelosi must understand that Pervez Musharraf did not had any other option except imposing emergency rule to survive. Bush regime policies towards Pervez Musharraf are the main cause of losing popular support of Pakistan people which he had, he lost the support of people trying to implement Bush regime policies of fighting “terrorism”. Pervez Musharraf had the support of majority of people before he started bombing and capturing his own people for US “war on terrorism”. He is seen as the enemy of its own people by taking orders from White House, the hatred for US is growing everyday, Osama Bin Laden popularity touching the highest level, and all this because of Bush regime policies of aggression which were approved by House of Representatives and Senate by huge majority. Nancy Pelosi and Democrats can’t blame Bush for all disasters, the Democrats are equally responsible for all this mess. He will get sometime with emergency rule and can survive, if he promised people of Pakistan and NWFP that he will not blindly follow Bush regime policies.

The time has come Pervez Musharraf realize his mistakes by opening negotiations with Pakistan Taliban who took control of several town in Swat. Osama Bin Laden and Mullah must be laughing at Pakistan security forces laying their weapons surrendering to Talibans, this will give them hope and courage to go after US occupation military in Afghanistan.
|Islamabad (PTI): Pro-Taliban militants have strengthened their hold on the Swat valley in northwestern Pakistan by seizing several key towns after outnumbered security forces laid down their arms and fled their posts.Militants are now controlling key towns like Matta, Khwazakhela, Madyan and Charbagh, all located near Imamdheri, the stronghold of radical cleric Maulana Fazlullah.Hundreds of militants have taken over the police stations in these towns, have established their own check posts and are patrolling the streets. In Matta, militants replaced the Pakistani flag with their own at the police station after over 120 security personnel surrendered earlier this week, daily The News reported.
The situation in Swat is clear that Islamic Militants can take the extreme decision to declare their independence which is clear from the above report that they have replaced Pakistan flags with their own flags in seized towns. The two nation theory, which was the basis of Pakistan creation, has already failed with the breakup of East Pakistan and now the uprising in NWFP and Baluchistan. It look like that creation of Pakistan was a mistake.
Pervez Musharraf still have the time to calm down the growing anger in NWFP and Baluchistan by starting serious negotiations with these Islamic Militans, who are angry at him for implementing Bush policies. Pervez Musharraf should cut a deal in NWFP promising to immediately stop all Security forces actions (which are not working anyway), remove the military check points, withdraw all the security forces from the region. This deal will create anger in US and all the European countries who are demanding Pervez Musharraf to end the State of Emergency but will bring peace and stability in Pakistan.
Once the deal is made, Pervez Musharraf government should introduce the social programs in the region, with opening schools, hospitals, providing new job opportunities for the people. The radical Mullahs like Fazlullah influence and hold are because of ignorance of majority of Muslims who blindly follow these religious scholars without knowing the religion. The radicalism will flourish the way Bush and Musharraf are fighting the “war on terror”, the radicalism will diminish by proper eduction of religion which will take time.
Pervez Musharraf claim to take steps which are in the best interest of the country, but his policies are not working, “war on terror” has brought Pakistan on the brink of another ugly breakup.

The latest news is that 5 US soldiers killed by roadside IED’s in Iraq making 2007 the most deadliest year for US military occupation. The violence in Iraq is low in last few months but this low violence happened many times in last five years which look like that Iraqi Resistance has given up, but they always came back with more sophisticated techniques with more powerful IEDs after that down time. The Bush regime with Republican Lawmkers that US troops escalation strategy is working, looking at the past it looks like that Iraqi Resistance is up to something, maybe trying to create unity with Sunni Shia resistance groups, acquiring new weapons, learning the new techniques to build more power IEDs, really don’t exactly know.
The suicide attacked killed 64 Afghans including 5 members of parliament.
The US occupation military is still facing very tough resistance in Afghanistan and Iraq.

The latest Pakistan news is that Pervez Musharraf is trying to convince Bush regime to let him declare state of emergency to fight their “war on terror”. Benazir Bhutto quickly rejected state of emergency fearing that it will be suspension of fundamental human rights. The militants are fighting Pakistani troops in North Frontier Province with popular support of the people, there was news that people have collected over US$ 25,000 in just three hours for militants. The battle between Pakistan troops and militants continue in Northern region of Pakistan which killed atleast 16 Pakistani soldiers. The clashes came a day after a suicide bomb attack less than a kilometre from the army headquarters in Rawalpindi killed at least seven people, including policemen and civilians, and left 11 others wounded. A suicide bomber on a motorcycle rammed a Pakistan Air Force (PAF) bus, killing at least eight people on Thursday as militants inspired by al Qaeda intensified a campaign to destabilize President Pervez Musharraf.
Pervez Musharraf and Bush must admit that their “war on terror” was a mistake, as it is not going in the direction of victory for Pakistan and US in the near future. The situation in the NWFP is becoming more violent increased attacks on Pakistan troops and as well as attacks on US troops in Afghanistan. The state of emergency will not suspend the fundamental humans of common people but it certainly will suspend the Benazir Bhutto dream of getting into power third time. The violence and killing will continue for Pakistani troops and US occupation military in Afghanistan if the rulers just accept their mistakes and try to resolved the conflict with negotiations. The Pakistan military and the US occupation military can’t get rid of Taliban from NWFP and Afghanistan, they will kill few hundreds, who will be replaced by few thousands more whose brothers fathers get killed by the military to take revenge. The way “war on terror” is executed will last for ever.
|“In battle, government troops are only trained to run away,” remarks Akbar Hussain, the Taleban commander for Kabal region.“We don’t want to kill them because they are also Muslim, but [the country’s military ruler] Gen Musharraf is using them to advance the Americans’ agenda.”
Officials say Taleban militants beheaded at least eight government troops during two days of fighting over the weekend. Independent sources say the number may be twice that.
The government has accused “outsiders” of perpetrating trouble in Swat, a charge Mr Hussain dismisses.
He attributes the beheading of the troops, a hallmark of well-trained fighters linked to the Taleban and al-Qaeda, to “ordinary local people who lost their loved ones” in Islamabad’s radical Red Mosque.

The front runners of both US parties Democrats and Republicans are corrupt politicians who are not very different than Bush. They are expert in spinning the issues, they are liars, they are deceptive, their leadership skills are mainstream print and electronic media gimmick. The mainstream print media and electronic media give exposure to front runners of both parties and the benefit of doing is that they will be the ones getting the campaign advertisements of these candidates during the primaries worth tens of millions of dollars. The US politics is a big business, the projected money spend for next election is 4 billion dollars.
Rudy Giuliani, John McCain, Mitt Romney, Hilary Clinton, Barak Obama, John Edwards are all liars using misinformation to get the votes. Bush and Dick want to bomb Iran so do all these front runner Presidential candidates, with the common stupid assumption that Iran will the the threat for US and Israel security. These front runners, if honestly believe this, than they are the most stupid people on earth, who have no intelligence to analyze the Iran nuclear issue. The fact. which is ignored by these moron front runner politicians, is that Iran if develop few nuclear bombs will not be threat to Israel, because they have stockpile of nuclear, biological chemical weapons, with bunker busting cluster bombs which can blow up whole Middle East in minutes. The other fact, which these front runner ignore that Iran does not have that long range missiles which can reach US. The Iran, insists that their nuclear program is for peaceful energy purpose so let them do what they are doing under UN inspections. IAEA does not have any proof that Iranians has any hidden or secret nuclear program. IAEA also reported that uranium enrichment is low grade which can’t be used to develop nuclear weapons. The truth is that Iran is not threat for Israel or US, it is Israel and US who are threat to world peace.
The American voters don’t know the power of their votes, they go and cast their vote for the biggest liar and hypocrite without actually knowing the facts about the issues. The Americans if wanted to continue this “war on terror” in Afghanistan fighting Taliban for another twenty years, keep Iraq under US occupation, want to invade Iran, send US troops into Pakistan NWFP region than go ahead vote for Rudy Giuliani, John McCain, Mitt Romney, Hillary Clinton, Barak Obama, John Edwards because they all have the similar policies of Bush regime aggression which will not bring peace and stability on earth.
The American voters if wanted to change the direction of country than they must vote for Dennis Kucinich and Ron Paul both candidates are honest truth speaking intelligent politicians who will bring peace and stability to the world. Dennis Kucinich and Ron Paul are saying what is right not like the front runners who are saying what ignorant voters wanted to hear. The real democratic revolution recently is seen in Bolivia, Nicaragua, Ecuador and Venezuela with voters rejecting the corrupt mainstream politicians, Americans must learn lesson from these countries voters.

The drumbeat by Bush regime is getting louder and louder saying the same lies which we heard before the invasion on Iraq. CNN and the mainstream media is busy creating false fears of Iran nuclear program which is in very initial stages is no threat at all for US Europe or Israel. The mainstream media criminally ignoring the facts that Iran uranium enrichment program has produced low grade uranium which can’t be used in nuclear weapons. The mainstream media never reported that Israel has stockpile of nuclear weapons which can blow up the whole Middle East, if Iran has couple of nuclear bombs that does not make them threat for US Israel and European countries. The Iranians are intelligent enough not to use the nuclear weapons because they don’t wanted to get destroyed by Israel carpet nuclear bombing.
The US military did not have a clear victory in Afghanistan and Iraq fighting with Resistance Groups who has outdated weapons and homemade explosive devices and Iran Military is well equipped well organized with the capability to cause the damage beyond American imagination. Iran’s has rockets which can hit the US military bases in Afghanistan, Iran, Qatar, Kuwait, Bahrain, UAE, which they will do without any hesitation if attacked. Iran’s government will strengthen Hamas, Hizbollah, Taliban and Iraqi Resistance Groups in response to US military attack.
The following is interesting article posted by Maureen Dowd, which could be a satire or maybe is the actual interview by Tim Russert of Dick.

|WASHINGTON — The cost of the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan could total $2.4 trillion through the next decade.
This is the USA today news story. These wars could have been avoided with intelligent approach which of-course can’t be expected from Bush and Dick. This is the great news for Osama Bin Laden who wanted to destroy US financially. Osama Bin Laden, Mullah Omar, Al Qaida and Taliban will be very pleased that they are actually achieving their goal of destroying US financially. This also mean that Osama Bin Laden is more brain than Bush and Dick and he is winning the “war on terror”. The cost of payouts to Pakistan and other US allies of greed, am sure is not included in this budget projected forecast, so lets adjust the projected cost of “war on terror” by adding few hundred billion dollars and make it 3 trillion.

Benazir Bhutto is cunning corrupt politician who has learned the effective propaganda tactics of Bush regime. It was me who on Oct. 19, 2007 said that two bombs blasts were her own party job and now PML (Pervez Musharraf League -Q) leader Chaudhry Shujaat Hussein is saying exactly the same. Benazir Bhutto is behind two bomb blasts. Benazir Bhutto is blaming Pervez Musharraf government for bomb blasts, her allegations are baseless when looking at the whole situation. Pervez Musharraf government did provided all the required security because it was in the interest of his government. The bombs if killed Benazir Bhutto or if she was severely wounded than it could have been the job of Pervez Musharraf government or Islamic militants. We all know that Benazir Bhotto went into the well protected small cabin build around that truck ten minutes before bomb blasts, she escape unhurt, to use it to win sympathies of ignorant Pakistan voters.
The Bush regime was quick to point figure at Al Qaida without even knowing whether it was suicide attacks. This was not Al Qaida or Taliban attack, Mullah Omar and Osama Bin Laden are more concerned about Afghanistan occupation rather than killing a women who has no powers. The Al Qaida and Taliban know that Benazir Bhutto after getting the power is no threat for their existence, she too will fail like Pervez Musharraf. The latest news according to her own party receiving new threats of suicide attack in a letter. The question is why these militants want to keep her informed about all their future plans which give her advantage of knowing all their future plans. The Islamic Militants don’t provide the details of their attacks, they keep it very secret so they have the chance of hitting their targets. The new threats are propaganda spreading by Benazir Bhutto to win the election and it is clear distraction that she is another puppet of White House who will implement Bush regime policies more forcefully when in power.
The real face of Benazir Bhutto democracy was exposed yesterday when her loyal supporters beat injured victim of bombing who went to see her at her residence with his son and wife, these loyal supporter break the tooth of his son. Benazir Bhutto party issued the statement that he was not the supporter of her party and he was tortured because he was suspicious. This is great, torture anyone who look suspicious, this is real democracy like Bush regime who are torturing suspected terrorists without any proof keep them in Guantanamo and secret prisons without any access to judicial justice.
The people of Pakistan if look at her past will know that Benazir Bhutto grabbed the power twice by playing victim, first time portraying herself as the daughter of her executed father and second time by lying that her government was not involved in corruption.
The violence which she brought with her will continue until election day and if she gets into power the violence will become worst. Pakistani voters must learn something from Bolivia, Venezuela, Ecuador and Nicaraguan voters who intelligently rejected the US supported corrupt politicians, Malaysia voters also very voted intelligently to keep Dr. Mahathir Mohammad in power for 22 years, who turned this third world country into number 19 developed country of the world. This is the real power of the vote which is not used properly by the voters due to lack of intelligence and ignorance. They fall into the trap of personality worship. Benazir Bhutto is US supported corrupt politician who wants to grab power with Bush regime blessings in the name of Democracy. The US government democracy means to give power to corrupt politicians who can protect their interests.
Benazir Bhutto name is on no exit list which means she can’t leave Pakistan. This is the right decision of Pervez Musharraf government not to let her go abroad without facing corruption charges cases.

Really don’t have time but US State Department make to write few lines about the hypocrisy of US and its European allies. The US State Department is asking Turkey not to invade Iraq going after Kurd terrorists.
|In Washington, the State Department said the United States has opened a diplomatic “full court press” to urge Turkey not to invade northern Iraq.“In our view, there are better ways to deal with this issue,” spokesman Sean McCormack said, stressing that the United States regards the the Kurdistan Workers’ Party, known by its Kurdish acronym PKK, as a terrorist organization.
There are better ways to deal with terrorism, Really, than why US and its European allies invaded Afghanistan and Iraq. The US and European politicians wants to invade Iran, the Presidential candidate Hilary Clinton even wanted to use limited nuclear weapons in Iran attack, US politicians want to invade Pakistan, Obama promised that he will send US troops into NWFP. Why don’t they try the better ways themselves to solve the issues with Iran.
F*king SOBs. This is all few minutes I can spare right now.
