Why bombing Ashkelon is the most tragic irony

Both Yitzhak Rabin and Shimon Peres said back in the 1990s that they wished Gaza would just go away, drop into the sea, and you can see why. The existence of Gaza is a permanent reminder of those hundreds of thousands of Palestinians who lost their homes to Israel, who fled or were driven out through fear or Israeli ethnic cleansing 60 years ago, when tidal waves of refugees had washed over Europe in the aftermath of the Second World War and when a bunch of Arabs kicked out of their property didn't worry the world. . . .

Yet if more than 300 Israelis had been killed—against two dead Palestinians—be sure that the "numbers game" and the disproportionate violence would be all too relevant.

Witnesses say the terrorists spoke fluent Marathi, not a Pakistani language

Witnesses in Cama hospital say the terrorists spoke fluent Marathi. Jihadis from Pakistan are unlikely to speak this language.

Afghanistan: Yet another war for empire

Right after the Soviet collapse, a core of imperial strategists - the neoconservatives or neocons - began arguing that the U.S. should lock in this unipolar world and prevent any rivals from emerging to challenge the U.S.

This was articulated in the Defense Department's 1992 "Defense Planning Guidance" - written by Paul Wolfowitz, Lewis Libby and Zalmay Khalilzad under the direction of then-Defense Secretary Dick Cheney - all later top officials in the Bush II administration.

Getting Bin Laden was just the pretext.

Israeli strikes on Gaza have as much to do with domestic policy as military deterrence

Last week, days after the ceasefire officially ended, 80 rockets were launched against Israel in just one day. . . . no Israeli was killed or injured . . .

Yesterday's strikes will have had as much to do with Israeli domestic policy as military deterrence. The country goes to the polls on February 10. Tzipi Livni, the foreign minister and the Kadima party candidate for prime minister, increasingly faced accusations of being soft on defence.

Indian intelligence agent provided SIM card to Mumbai attacker

Calcutta police arrested Mukhtar Ahmed for procuring SIM cards for the group without knowing that he was an undercover operative.

He was on a long-term mission with police in Indian-administered Kashmir.

Senior intelligence sources say a "high-value asset" has been blown and his family put at risk.

Mukhtar Ahmed has told those questioning him that he was working for police intelligence in Indian-administered Kashmir.

His brief was to procure SIM cards for Lashkar-e-Taiba fighters and pass the numbers to police so that all calls from those numbers could be monitored by intelligence.

Mumbai Attacks: Why should we believe Kasab and Jadhav's stories?

Although Indians are not aware of it, in university circles in America it is a widespread opinion that 9/11 was an inside job carried out under the leadership of American and Israeli Zionists as a cover story for the conquest of Iraq and Afghanistan. The mainstream media is solidly under the control of the Jewish establishment, so those forums are closed to the discussion, but it freely takes place on the internet. These forces, whether global-financial-imperialist or zionist, are under the ultimate control of the same people, organised around a small cluster of Jewish financier families. They have completely taken over all Western societies, especially America and Britain.

These forces would like to break up Pakistan and then any other multi-ethnic large states in the region as a means to uncontested control of small states in the middle east and central asia for the next hundred years. Manmohan, a creature of the World Bank which they completely control, is their man. But so are the Hindutva fascists. The first faction, Manmohan and perhaps Sonia and company, is closer tied to financial circles, and the second, the Hindutvis, to Israel. It is very easy to control terrorists if you are a well-funded intelligence agency. It is easy to get people to pretend to be Islamist or whatever fanatics, and give them the money to control the actions of the demented folk who volunteer to be their followers. That seems to have been done in this very sophisticated operation. The Jewish involvement, and its subsequent media use, is one more suggestive clue. Against that background, here are some questions.

Why should we believe Kasab and Jadhav's stories? The entire account of Karkare's death comes down to these two characters. They should be narco-analysed. But who can we trust to do it? Are there any moe jewels like Karkare left in India's crown?

I don't trust what is left of the Maharashtra police, and I don't trust either Congress or the BJP. What was really discussed at the Narayanan - Advani meeting before the Mumbai incident? We know it was about the embarrassment caused by Karkare, but what else?

We were shown Kasab on TV, and it was said he was so badly wounded that he could only be allowed to confess for five minutes at a time. Quite a drama. Then the dean of the hospital came up with the statement that Kasab was not wounded at all. Now it is said that he is wounded in the palms of his hands. An unwounded Kasab would lead one to question his story. But if the story starts unraveling, the best way to bring in some credibility is to wound the man. I think the palms would be the best site to volunteer to take a hit.

Jadhav's story too is full of incredible claims. He too turns out to be cosmetically wounded. There are some questions we would like to ask you, sir.

I think it is sheer foolishness to tie our fortunes to a sinking West, instead of to our neighbours, Pakistan, Iran, China, Russia, Central Asia, and the whole Middle East. There we would count for something. Why are the Congress and the BJP drumming up a war with Pakistan? If we act as the agents of the West, we will end up like Saddam Husain.

Total defeat for U.S. in Iraq

On November 27 the Iraqi parliament voted by a large majority in favor of a security agreement with the US under which the 150,000 American troops in Iraq will withdraw from cities, towns and villages by June 30, 2009 and from all of Iraq by December 31, 2011. The Iraqi government will take over military responsibility for the Green Zone in Baghdad, the heart of American power in Iraq, in a few weeks time. Private security companies will lose their legal immunity. US military operations and the arrest of Iraqis will only be carried out with Iraqi consent. There will be no US military bases left behind when the last US troops leave in three years time and the US military is banned in the interim from carrying out attacks on other countries from Iraq.

The Status of Forces Agreement (SOFA), signed after eight months of rancorous negotiations, is categorical and unconditional. . . .

Who are the beneficieries of Mumbai terror? Hindu fascist organizations and its parent 'BJP'!

1. Unlike other terrorists, Terrorists in Mumbay has not demanded anything? They don't demand release of their co-prisoners nor demanded money... why?? what was their target then?

2. Unlike other islamic Jehadis with beard and turbans, why Mumbai terrorists came with strange look - they wore jeans and T-shirts; clean-shaved and no turbans nor any sign of muslims terrorists we normally watch on media?

3. And the Terrorists attackers did nothing specifically for western, even Israelis, it was sure if they were Jehadists!

4 Beer driking terrorists; Jehadi terrorists and non-alcoholic, however Mumbai Terrorists goes to the cafe and drinks beer before they start firing??

5. Mumbai terrorists (as shown by media) had close similarities with RSS cadres: Mumbai terrorist wearing an yellow band on his right hand as RSS cadres wears normally (see pictures).

6. Mumbai terrorists immediately find their targets by killing ATS leaders [Hemant Karakare, CP Ashok Kamthe & Vijay Salskar) in early hours of their terror? How they so specific the clearly chose ATS leaders? And the terrorist immediately ran away, why? & who was that terrorist?

7. Only one terrorists is caught lively (?), all others killed as in every encounter in recent past?

8. Mumbai terrorits are very clear about their targets, they are well experienced their hide abouts in Taj and other places?

9. Prime Minister, Sonia & LK Advani visits Mumbai, but no clues or no claims about ISI or Pakistan.. However No1 terrorist, Gujarat CM Modi hurry-up to Mumbai and declares that Pakistan is behind the attack without any doubt! [because he is the one who hired them]

Note: no other CMs goes to Mumbai.. And he offers rewards to every military men killed of 1 crore unlike PM and LK Advani? Even he offers aid to MahaRastra!

10. Media was widely reporting that there were IDs of terrorists recovered which shows Malaysian and Mauritious IDs however such references disappeared once Terrorist leader Modi's arrival!

11 The timing of Mumbay terror is well planned, just before state elections!

12. We are told that they came from Pakistan by sea? Indian military in boards sea were sleeping?? We told they came by speed boats? Yes, but not from Pakistan but from Gujarat!

13. It took contineous 60 hours to stop the terrorism! and most of terrorists killed!!
