US Military Attack Action Against Iran.

Posted by QB on October 28, 2007

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The US military did not have a clear victory in Afghanistan and Iraq fighting with Resistance Groups who has outdated weapons and homemade explosive devices and Iran Military is well equipped well organized with the capability to cause the damage beyond American imagination.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.

Peres congratulates Musharraf.

Posted by QB on October 8, 2007

Israel President Shimon Peres congratulated Pervez Musharraf on winning Presidential elections. This is the first time that Israel issued public statement showing their good friendly intentions. President Peres should know that everybody in the world wants peace in Middle East and this include Hamas, Hizbollah and Iran, Saudi Arabia, Egypt, UAE, Pakistan and all the other Muslim countries..

Israel congratulated Pervez Musharraf on his re-election as president of Pakistan.President Shimon Peres on Monday published an open letter to Musharraf, a former general who seized power in 1999 and swept to a second term in elections over the weekend.Peres noted that although Islamabad and Jerusalem do not have formal ties, Musharraf has voiced interest in Israeli-Arab peace efforts. Musharraf is an ally of the Bush administration.“You have shown responsibility and strength in preventing the spread of violence and terrorism on many occasions, and I carry in my heart your support for peace in the Middle East,” Peres wrote. “Please accept, Your Excellency, the assurances of my highest consideration.”

The Israeli and Pakistani foreign ministers held surprise talks in 2005, but Pakistan has said it will withhold full recognition of the Jewish state until a Palestinian state is founded.

Peres statement is the first positive step towards peace. The Israeli government has to work hard towards achieving peace by just opening their minds and hearts and accepting that their policies of aggression and oppression were wrong. These policies did not bring any peace and stability from last 60 years and these policies can’t bring peace in the next 100 years. The confrontation will cause death and destruction on both sides.

The Peres know that Ahmadinejad can’t destroy Israel, the fact is that Israel can destroy all the neighboring countries with its WMD. It is in the best interest of the Israel to solve Palestine issue as quickly as possible which will bring peace stability prosperity for Israel and Middle East. The peace treaty giving Palestinians will also destroy Al Qaida without firing a single shot. Al Qaida and terrorism is growing due to wrong policies of US and Israel. Fighting war on terror will keep growing with Bush policy of invasions and occupations.

Ahmadinejad questioned by Kidnapped Israeli Soldier’s Wife.

Posted by QB on September 27, 2007

Ahmadinejad UN press conference transcript and videos are available at many websites so not really getting into the content of his press conference here I will only deal with the wife of Israel Kidnapped soldier’s wife question. She asked the question directly to Ahmadinejad and his reaction during the whole question was smile.

Goldwasser said she was not afraid to present the president with her question, and asked him, “Hello, my name is Karnit, the wife of Ehud Goldwasser, the soldier who has been held captive for over a year. Since you are the man that is behind the kidnapping due to the aid you grant Hizbullah, why don’t you allow the Red Cross to visit the two soldiers?” she asked.

The wife of this kidnapped Israeli soldier is trying desperately everything possible to get some news about his abducted husband from last one year. There was really nothing wrong with her sneaking into the UN press conference except the question. She blamed Amhadiinejad for her soldier kidnapping which is not the truth, it is the propaganda promoted by Israeli and US government. The propaganda is used by Israel and US government to brainwash their citizens by keep repeating the lies on print and electronic media. This poor wife of Israeli soldier is the simple case of Israeli and US government lies and my sympathies are with her as I can understand her feelings.

Ahmadinejad can’t be blamed for Israeli soldiers kidnapping. This is true that Iranian government has close ties with Hizbollah which get their financial and military aid. Israeli government is the recipient of biggest US financial and military aid compared to the rest of the world. She has to look this matter in broad perspective, Ahmadinejad is responsible for two Israeli soldiers kidnapping than Bush regime and all the previous US governments are responsible for illegal abduction of tens of thousands of Palestinians and Lebanese who are in Israeli prisons for decades. These Palestinians and Lebanese prisoners are also the sons, husbands, fathers and the families don’t have any information these prisoners.

Dear Sister Karnit you are the victim of Israeli and US government wrong policies of aggression oppressions and occupation. Look at the facts that these two Israeli soldiers were kidnapped to negotiate the release of Lebanese prisoners. The Israeli government refused to get engaged in any negotiations instead attacked Lebanon carpet bombing the villages with cluster bombs killing thousands of innocent women children and unarmed civilians. The best way to pursue the release of your husband is to put pressure on your own government to start the negotiations with Hizbollah for their prisoners who were illegally abducted and are in your country prisons. The peace is only possible with your Arab neighbors when majority of Israelis stop supporting the wrong policies of their government.

The soldiers kidnapped by Hizbollah according to my analysis are alive and treated very well as they are Hizbollah greatest chance of getting their own prisoners released.

This news just heard on CNN that huge car bomb destroyed residential commercial building in Beirut in Sunni neighborhood. This looks like Sunni Shiite Iraq conflict getting into neighboring countries.

Update more when get more news.

The following is the link to the news.Explosion in Lebanese capital’s Muslim sector injures 5, causes extensive damage.

CNN Nic Robertson reported dozens of wounded in this car bombing. There was another bomb blast in Christian neighborhood yesterday which killed one women and dozens reported injured.

This looks like another bloody civil war just getting started in Lebanon between Sunni Shiite and Christians.

A regional security pact to calm the Middle East

Posted by QB on May 13, 2007

This is excellent article and I agree with what Patrick Seale has written.

A regional security pact to calm the Middle East

By: Patrick Seale
2007-05-12
The failure of the Bush Administration’s Middle East policy is now so catastrophic as to pose a danger to international peace and security. It is high time the United States stepped aside and turned the region’s problems over to local powers.

What can be done? In my view, Saudi Arabia, the Arab world’s real heavyweight, should join its Gulf partners in offering Iran a wide-ranging security pact. The Arabs would guarantee not to allow their territory to be used for a U.S. attack on Iran, while Iran would guarantee not to use Shi‘a communities to destabilize the existing political order in the region.

Such a pact could help stabilize Iraq and cool Sunni-Shi‘a tensions. It might even be the only way to persuade Iran to give up whatever ambitions it may have to acquire nuclear weapons.

At the same time, Egypt should be given a wide Arab mandate and massive international backing — from Europe, but also from China, Russia and India, as well as the United States —to sell the Arab Peace Initiative to the Israeli public as a matter of urgency. This offers Israel peace with the entire Arab world if it withdraws to its 1967 borders and allows the creation of a Palestinian state.

The situation is grave because of America’s deplorable record. Its smashing of Iraq —for fabricated and fraudulent reasons — has led to a strategic, political, and human disaster unparalleled in the modern history of the Arab world. The United States has itself paid a heavy price for its criminal folly, but not nearly as heavy as that paid by the wretched Iraqis whose collapsed state has opened the door to a hell of utter lawlessness.

America’s destruction of Iraq has shattered the balance of power between Arabs and Persians, which for centuries was a key to the region’s stability; it has created an Iraqi refugee problem of mammoth proportions, matched only by that of the Palestinians driven from their homes by the creation of Israel in 1947-48; and it has ignited a cruel civil war between Sunnis and Shi’a, which threatens to set the region on fire.

The United States should get out at the earliest opportunity before it does more damage still.

Originally aimed at eliminating Al-Qaeda and its Taliban hosts, America’s war in Afghanistan has turned into a doomed struggle with the powerful Pathan tribes which dominate the east and south of Afghanistan and straddle the frontier with Pakistan. These are the men now fighting under the revived Taliban banner.

The unfortunate President Pervez Musharraf of Pakistan (whose minister of interior was nearly killed by a suicide bomber last week) is caught between American pressure to prevent cross border infiltration into Afghanistan and the natural instincts of the fighting men in Pakistan’s tribal agencies to rush to the aid of their tribal brothers in Afghanistan. Meanwhile, much of Afghanistan is raging against America and its puppet government in Kabul for the ghastly casualties inflicted on the civilian population by indiscriminate U.S. air strikes and other abuses.

This is a war America’s NATO allies should never have joined. Far from eliminating “terrorism,” the war in Afghanistan, like the war in Iraq, has become a “terrorist factory,” creating whole armies of men bent on revenge for what America has done to their shattered societies.

The way to defeat Al-Qaeda —essentially a parasitic body feeding on other people’s conflicts —is to put an end to these wars, not to expand them. The urgent priority is not to stoke the fires of war but to lower tensions as much as is humanly possible and bring about calm and security so as to allow much-needed reconstruction to begin.

In Iran, the United States is in danger of making an even graver mistake than in Iraq and Afghanistan. It began by handing Iran two precious gifts: the (temporary) defeat of the Taliban and the overthrow of Saddam Hussein. This freed Iran from old enemies and potential threats on both its flanks, allowing it to emerge as a leading power in the Gulf, with extensions into the Levant by means of the Tehran-Damascus-Hizbullah axis.

The United States and its Israeli ally then took fright at this new challenge to their regional hegemony and have sought to put the Islamic Republic back in its box. They have together mounted a world-wide campaign to isolate Iran economically and politically, threatening it openly with armed attack.

As a “message” to Iran, the United States has sent two powerful carrier battle groups to the region and — again with enthusiastic help from Israel — has sought to undermine Iran’s banking system and starve it of international credits by pressuring major banks to stop dealing with it. These are illegal actions, which go far beyond the sanctions authorized by U.N. Resolutions.

In demonizing Iran, the United States and Israel have focussed primarily on its nuclear program, portraying it as an “existential threat” to Israel and a danger to the entire world. This is dangerous propaganda with little basis in fact.

Iran is many years away from being able to manufacture atomic weapons, even if it wished to do so, which is by no means clear. It is perfectly entitled to the peaceful uses of nuclear power under the terms of the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT), which it has signed but which Israel, India and Pakistan have not.

It is worth recalling that the possession of nuclear weapons can protect a country against attack, but that such weapons cannot be used against more powerful enemies without risking national extinction. I do not believe the Iranians are contemplating national suicide.

The present American and Israeli position is that they will not tolerate a nuclear-armed Iran. That is what they say. But what does it mean? What if Iran enriches uranium for peaceful purposes, as it is entitled to do under the NPT, but stops well short of a military program? Will the United States and Israel go to war to prevent that? It would be a catastrophic error.

There is hardly a corner of the region where U.S. policy has not spread mayhem. The latest victim of its diplomacy is Somalia, where the Ethiopian intervention it encouraged has caused a bloodbath and enormous human misery.

Last summer, it encouraged and supported Israel in its all-out war against Lebanon —a gross overreaction to a relatively trivial border incident.

The result has been to demonstrate Israel’s vulnerability to missiles and asymmetric warfare, to dent the deterrent capability of its army, to demoralize its population and expose its leaders as a bunch of incompetent and morally-dubious politicians.

The United States has followed Israel’s lead in seeking to undermine Hizbullah, the victor in the Lebanese war, and to boycott Hamas, the victor in democratic Palestinian elections. It has thus made bitter enemies of two popular and deeply-rooted resistance movements, which have sprung up in response to Israeli aggression and occupation.

Instead of urging Israel to make peace with its neighbors —the only long-term guarantee of its security —Washington has funded and turned a blind eye to its occupation and settlement of Palestinian and Syrian territory and has provided political cover for its aggression against Lebanon and for its extraordinarily brutal treatment of the Palestinians.

There is now serious talk of a third intifada, which would set the desperate Palestinian territories alight and carry death and destruction into Israel itself.

On a visit in April to the West Bank, Louis Michel, the European Commissioner for Development and Humanitarian Assistance, noted that the situation in the territory had never been worse. Some 60 per cent of the population is living below the poverty line on two euros a day or less. Some 35 percent of the population — 1.3 million Palestinians — are going hungry. More than half the children suffer from anemia. A quarter of the population have no access to drinking water. Hundreds of Israeli check points rule out any possibility of economic development, reducing the population to a situation of permanent siege and permanent terror. Does Israel’s security justify such measures, Louis Michel asked?

Is it not time regional powers took their destiny into their own hands, free from external, and specifically nefarious American, interference?

Deaths destructions and killings.

Posted by QB on February 2, 2007

Deaths destruction and killings that’s what going on presently with no hope of any peace among the fighting factions in Middle East. Bush is killing to win his war on terror. Iraqi Sunni Shia are killing each other in the name of their twisted interpretation of religion. Palestinians are killing each other for control of power where Hamas and Fatah are fighting and killing innocent civilians. There is tension between Hezbollah and Sunni Christians coalition in Lebanon which is a time bomb which can explode anytime. US troops are dying fighting George W. Bush war with one more helicopter shot down.

The madness and hatred is so strong that nobody is thinking intelligently that killing each other will not resolve anything it will make the situation worst. The life in Middle East has become so difficult that death look like the more attractive option for common poor people.

I hate all this violence will keep my mouth shut because there is nothing I can do to stop all this madness.

Iran war games.

Posted by QB on November 3, 2006

Iran has fired long range missiles in their military manoeuvres exercises. This is clear show off their military strength to US and Israel as they believe they will airstrike their nuclear facilities. The missiles fired were 300 km and 2000 km with immediate response coming from Condoleezza Rice said, while Iran was trying to show it is “tough” by test- firing a ballistic missile able to hit Israel, any use of the weapon would invite consequences understood by Iranian leaders.

Bush regime is pushing hard to get Britain France Germany sanctions against Iran to pass in UN Security Council but it is already blocked by Russia and China by rejecting it saying the sanctions are too tough and both these countries wants negotiations to continue.

Bush regime has also accused Syria and Iran that they are tying to topple Lebanon government which both countries denied strongly.

“We do not care about such accusations. They’re worthless,” Syrian Expatriates Minister Buthaina Shaaban told reporters. “They are practising terrorism while accusing others of it. The problem in Lebanon is US and Israeli interference.”

The Syrian newspaper said the United States should make public any evidence of the alleged Syrian role in efforts to topple the Lebanese government.

US officials say the information is classified. This is the biggest weapon of Bush regime to avoid providing any evidence whether it is against the alleged terrorists they are holding and torturing or against any government which they don’t like to propagate lies and when ask for evidence come up with “its classified”.

Iran’s Foreign Ministry spokesman Mohammad Ali Hosseini denied the US accusation and said Washington should review its policies in the Middle East.

“These are repeated claims aimed to create divisions among Lebanese people and their government,” Hosseini said.

The US accusation come after Hasan Nasrallah demand of creating the national unity government and given Prime Minister Fouad Siniora by the mid of November to form a national unity government or Hezbollah will take it to streets calling for new elections.

Hasan Nasrallah has correctly pointed out US hypocrisy who claim to be the champions of democracy but keep interfering in other countries democratic elections.

Hizbollah said the White House statement showed Washington’s declared goal of promoting democracy in the Middle East was “a hollow and deceptive slogan”.

“We stress that this American violation of our national sovereignty will not terrorise our people or stop it from practising every one of its constitutional rights, led by the right to demonstrate, hold elections and choosing its government,” a Hizbollah statement said.

This is fair statement in response to US allegations.

Hezbollah Threatens Protests.

Posted by QB on November 2, 2006

Hezbollah is treatening street protests and call for an early elections if their demands are not met. They are demanding for a “national unity” Cabinet that would give the Islamic militants and their allies veto power over key decisions.

“Our concept of the national unity government is that all the basic forces in Lebanon be in it … actual and serious participation, not an aesthetic participation,” Sheik Hassan Nasrallah, Hezbollah’s leader, said in a lengthy interview on Hezbollah’s Al-Manar TV Tuesday night.

In the same interview, Nasrallah said that “serious negotiations” were taking place over the two Israeli soldiers whose July 12 capture by his militant group sparked the 34-day war.

He said a negotiator appointed by U.N. Secretary-General Kofi Annan has been meeting with Hezbollah and Israeli officials. He would not provide details about the negotiations, but told Al-Manar: “We have reached a stage of exchanging ideas, proposals or conditions.”

Nasrallah also warned that any attempts by the beefed-up U.N. peacekeeping force in southern Lebanon to disarm Hezbollah would transform the country into another Iraq or Afghanistan. He did not elaborate.

Hezbollah put these demands because they have gained more popular support within Lebanon and in the whole Middle East after Israel’s failed invasion. I had written this after the ceasefire between Israel and Hezbollah that I will not be surprised if they take over the control of Lebanon government in next elections. Hasan Nasrallah believes that he has the popular support to win early elections if their demands are not met.

Israeli warplanes step up overflights over Lebanon.

Posted by QB on October 23, 2006

Beirut – Israeli jets intensified Monday their overflights over Lebanon reaching areas over the capital Beirut, Lebanese police said.

‘More than 20 overflights were registered over areas in the capital, its surroundings and southern Lebanon,’ the police said.

Two jets flew low over Beirut, police said.

Police said four planes carrying out mock raids over the southern port city of Tyre, as Lebanese Muslims celebrated the end of Ramadan.

‘These are the most intensive overflights since the August 14 ceasefire,’ the police said.

The Israeli violations came days after France, which currently commands the UN peacekeeping force in south Lebanon, said the force could open fire on Israeli jets violating the terms of a UN ceasefire.

Resolution 1701 which ended 33 days of fighting between Israel and the Lebanese militant group Hezbollah calls for the disarmament of all militia in Lebanon, the withdrawal of Israeli troops from southern Lebanon, and the deployment of a UN peacekeeping force along side the Lebanese army in the south.

Israel action of mock air attack is provocation to Hezbollah and does not look like they really are looking for peaceful solutions in Middle East. Israel has step up these over flights after UNIFIL complaints that these overflights are clear violation of UN Resolution 1701 with General comments to use force. Israel is showing off their power in very childish immature way to UN that they are helpless and can’t do anything against them because their all actions and atrocities are backed by US. They know US will veto all UN resolutions which goes against the interest of Israel. They are like the spoiled child of US government who are allowed to do whatever mischief they want and still claim that they are peace loving people.

Israel admitted using Phosphorus bombs in Lebanon. Update.

Posted by QB on October 22, 2006

Tel Aviv, Oct 22 (Prensa Latina) For the first time, Israel admitted using phosphorus shells in its recent offensive against Lebanon, Haaretz reported Sunday.

Minister Jacob Edery, in charge of government-Knesset relations, said Israel used those bombs during the war against Hezbollah in attacks against military targets in open ground, arguing they used this type of munitions according to the rules of international law, which does not prohibit them.

White Phosphorus (WP), known as Willy Pete, can be used for signaling, screening, and incendiary purposes, but it is also used during times of conflicts to destroy the enemy´s equipment or to limit his vision.

Despite its results in painful chemical burn injuries, it is not outlawed or illegal or banned by any convention or treaty.

However, the third protocol of the Geneva Convention on Conventional Weapons restricts the use of “incendiary weapons,” with phosphorus considered to be one such weapon.

Israel and the United States are not signatories to the Third Protocol.

The US Department of Defense had also admitted using phosphorus munitions during its November 2004 offensive in the Iraqi city of Fallujah.

This is the real face of socalled peace loving countries Israel and US who don’t get tired speaking about terrorism each and every day and then do their own “terrorists” acts of using phosphorus bombs, cluster bombs on civilians. The Israel and US are the countries who believe that the lives of their citizens are more valuable than any other country of the world. The US is the only country which has used the Nuclear Weapons on civilian in World War II and they might be the only nation to use it again in Middle East to win the war. Israel do follow US is also capable of using Nuclear Weapons against Iran or Syria.

The latest victim of Israel cluster bombs in Lebanon.

A ten-year old boy was killed in southern Lebanon on Sunday after he came in contact with an unexploded Israeli cluster bomb. The boy had been working in their family’s olive grove in the village of Helta near the Lebanese border with Israel when the explosion occurred.

The explosion killed the ten-year old boy and seriously wounded his brother. Both children were rushed to a nearby hospital, but the boy died on the way.

UNIFIL suggests force against Israel. Update.

Posted by QB on October 20, 2006

This is interesting report where General Alain Pellegrini, commander of the UNIFIL is suggesting to change the UN Resolution 1701 to use force to stop Irael violations of Lebanon air space. General Pellegrini also denied Israel charges that weapons smugling from Syria to Hezbollah.

UNIFIL suggests force against Israel.

The Bush regime has already rejected any change in UN 1701 resolution to use force against Israel.

Israel said it would continue air force flights over Lebanon despite a rebuke from France.

Defense Minister Amir Peretz said Sunday the surveillance flights over Lebanon were needed to track arms shipments to Hezbollah combatants from neighboring Syria.

“As long as attempts to smuggle arms into Lebanon persist, the legitimacy of Israeli overflights increases,” he told the Cabinet.

Israeli debate about the overflight policy was stirred up by French Defense Minister Michele Alliot-Marie, who said last Friday that violations of Lebanese airspace threatened to undermine the Aug. 14 truce that ended Israel’s war with Hezbollah.

She also hinted that French and other troops making up the bolstered U.N. peacekeeper force in southern Lebanon could perceive the Israeli overflights as a threat and fire on the planes in self-defense.

Peretz called Alliot-Marie’s remarks “inappropriate.”

He said international peacekeepers stationed in Lebanon “should act against Hezbollah and not against Israel.”

Israel can get away with anything because they have US unconditional support on their side. Peretz know that UN is helpless to take any action or helpless to implement any of its resolution because it will be strongly opposed by US.

Israel committed war crimes.

Posted by QB on October 14, 2006

The Canadian Liberal party will vote for its new leader in December and one of the frong runner has accused Israel committed war crimes during Lebanon invasion. Michael Ignatieff said at the weekend that Israel committed a war crime when it bombarded the Lebanese village of Qana in July. The Bush like conservative Prime Minister was quick to jump on his statement by calling Liberal Party anti Israel.

Michael Ignatieff said on Friday that it would be up to international bodies to determine whether Israel had committed war crimes at Qana, although he also said he thought both sides in the conflict were guilty of crimes against civilians.

“I do believe that in this explosive conflict, war crimes were visited on Israeli citizens and were visited on Lebanese civilians,” he said.

Ignatieff, who stressed his friendship for Israel and said he would travel there soon, said it was disgraceful for Harper to suggest the Liberals were anti-Israeli.

“There is no basis whatever for Mr. Harper to suggest that the Liberal Party is biased against Israel.”

According to another report Israel used thousands of cluster bombs in Southern Lebanon before cease fire which are still taking the lives of Lebanese civilians and childrens when these bombs explode. These cluster bombs, which upon detonation let off well over a million “bomblets” that spread like buckshot over wide areas, now litter the region and kill or maim on average three people a day. Labanese government reported that these cluster bombs has severely wounded 109 people killing 18 since cease fire.

Michael Slackman, in a report he filed from Beirut for The New York Times last Friday, writes of these bomblets: “They are stuck in the branches of olive trees and the broad leaves of banana trees. They are on rooftops, mixed in with rubble and littered across fields, farms, driveways, roads and outside schools.”

Clearly by dropping these bombs, Israel is not only in violation of international law, but may very well be guilty of a war crime. That it dropped them at a time when the United Nations Security Council was a day or two short of negotiating a resolution to end the war is morally repugnant. Of the million or so bomblets that litter the region, only 4,500 have been found and disposed of so far.

North Korea ready for Nuclear Test!!!

Posted by QB on October 3, 2006

I don’t blame Kim Jong-Il. This is one more Bush administration failure. Bush does not have the foggiest idea what is diplomacy and why it is always helpful to resolve the conflicting issues with negotiations. The word “foggiest” used in reference to Bush statement which is reported in Bob Woodward book that he said his dad ask him to see Prince Bandar to learn about the international relations and he did not had the “foggiest” idea what international relations means before meeting him.

North Korea is going through worst economic and financial problems and all they need is financial aid to boast their economy. Bill Clinton diplomacy was great providing financial help to Kim Jong-Il with the promise not to persue their nuclear weapons development. It is so sad to see a President who follow Bill Clinton is a moron with no common sense. This President should have learned what diplomacy means from his teacher Prince Bandar with international relations.

Bush don’t talk to Kim Jong-Il, Bush don’t talk to Ahmadinejad, Bush don’t talk to Hugo Chavez, Bush don’t talk to Hamas Prime Minister of Palestine, Bush don’t talk to Hasan Nasrallah of Hezbollah.

The international relations are not like personal relationships where you don’t talk and be friends with people who disagree with one’s personal opinions which is alright but diplomacy is simply the conduct by government officials of negotiations and other relations between nations or the art or science of conducting such negotiations. Bush administration or better call it regime has introduced its own doctrines which are dictatorial where they are dictating their own terms and conditions without taking part in any real negotiations.

Iranian President Ahmadinejad show great diplomacy when he invited US for negotiations with the idication that they might stop their uranium enrichment program. Bush regime refused any direct negotiations with their usual arrogance demanding Iran to stop uranium enrichment first for any negotiations to take place.

Bush regime and his European allies punished the Palestinian people for electing Hamas in very fair election by stopping all their financial aid which is causing social economic and violent unrest in Palestine. They should have accepted these democratic results with starting negotiations with Hamas to change their stance on Israel instead of immediately cutting off all the financial aid.

Bush has strained relationship with Hugo Chavez after they immediately accepted the coup in 2002 which could have easily be reconciled with negotiations. Bush regime choose to go after Hugo Chavez by trying to isolate Venezuela in Latin America by false accusations of harboring terrorists and trying to portray him as the threat to neighboring countries.

These are the main reason that I don’t blame Kim Jong-Il conducting nuclear test.

Israel withdrawal from Lebanon completed.

Posted by QB on October 1, 2006

This war was the mistake by Ehud Olmert and his cabinet. Israel lost badly in this war without achievement any of its goal. The Israel carpet bombing of Southern Lebanon destroyed cities towns villages bridges and mostly killed young children and civilians. Hezbollah also fired few thousands of its rocket into Israel towns and cities which did killed some civilians and destroyed some civilians properties.

This war was started to liberate two Israelis captured soldiers and even after the withdrawal of Israel soldiers there is no release of those two captured soldiers. This war which was mistake to start with filled with arrogance and pride that Israel military power will destroy Hezbollah completely within days. This was the message coming out from Israel’s UN Ambassador and the Israel’s spokespersons. US immediately vetoed cease fire resolution at UN Security Council on Israel government wishes that they need couple of weeks to accomplished their goals. Israel government realised after four weeks after suffering military casualties that they have no chance of winning over Hezbollah accepted the ceasefire to save their face.

Israel can’t claim any good coming out of this unnecessary 34 days war. Ehud Olmert is facing the anger from the Israelis. There are also very strong voices within Israel for his resignation. Israel also is criticized by UN and by EU for using excessive use of power.

When this war started Egypt, Saudi Arabia and Jordan criticized Hezbollahblaming to be the main cause of starting this war. These three Arab governments quickly stopped Hezbollah criticism with growing popularity within their own countries among the masses.

Qatar close US ally and the head quarters for military in Middle East visited Lebanon. praises Hezbollah for their brave stand against Israeli military and defeated Israel after 60 years. He also looked very happy to claim the first victory of the Arabs. Lebanon Prime Minister advice Israel can live in peace only by solving the issues with peaceful negotiations. The Lebanon Prime Minister is scared to criticize Hezbollah and Nasrallah because Israel invasion has helped this organization to reached to new level of popularity with in Lebanon and all around the Muslims World.
