EVENTS UP TO MUSHARRAF'S DEMISE
Pakistan is free again!!
There is nothing mixed in the legacy of an abhorrent dictator. Shame on BBC...
Shame on us, the west, for bankrolling a dictator and a regime that we would have never wanted as our own.
Are Pakistanis children of a lesser God?
It is very difficult to understand how Saakashvili dares to stand close to Secretary Rice
and accuse the west for not doing enough to protect his country. His move to attack
South Ossetia on the eve of the opening of the Beijing Olympics shows that he is an
irresponsible statesman. He has learned no lessons from the Cuban crisis and he has
absolutely no insight on the Kosovo crisis: Serbia was trying to "protect its province"
in the same way that Georgia is trying to "protect" South Ossetia and Abkhazia; only
their desire goes against the will of the majority of the local populations and, even more
significantly, it seems, of the powers to be...America and Russia, respectively.
STOP THE WAR NOW!
RESPECT THE OLYMPIC SPIRIT!
This was not a presidential candidate. This WAS the NEXT PRESIDENT OF THE
UNITED STATES OF AMERICA.
Barack is now selectively supporting the death penalty and promises to expand
Bush's faith-based programs. Furthermore, he supports some ability to hire and
to fire based on faith. Are we serious or is it a April fool's joke? And as if these were
not enough, he said that he has always believed that the Second Amendment
protects the right of individuals to bear arms...
the EU is a democratic institution, why do its leaders refuse to see
that its citizens
are vehemently refusing to ratify the cumbersome and unwieldly treaties
bureaucrats repeatedly try to feed them?
Le Figaro reports that Jean-Claude
Juncker is the favorite
to preside over the European Council.
It would have been a very grave situation indeed if France had been
sending the message to ministers
of governments in the developing world: "Embezzle public funds and come
live comfortably in Paris
Why do authorities in the U.S. allow selective enforcement of the laws
of the land so blatantly?
Why are restrictions on the drinking age or the ban of sales of tobacco
to minors enforced so
strictly, while, at the same time, polygamy openly allowed? Are they
not all moral issues and
all deemed unlawful by laws that are supposed to have equal stature in
our civilized society?
Some people have never gotten it, are not getting it and will never get
Mugabe is either seriously delusional or simply a very very untalented
leader... In a rapidly changing Africa, he is choosing to stay behind.
When in a certain field, it takes
a panel of experts to conclude the obvious (that many
"non-experts" have been arguing about for years) the reliability of the
field should be

- America's kid's are not doing well in Math;
- The debate about methods is meaningless because every method has
its merits and they are all
- People should be taught in less breadth and greater depth so that
they do not have to be retaught
the same topic over and over again several times;
- Basic Math should be mastered well enough so as to be stored in
long-term memory for future
reference and success in Math skills.
Barack swept Mississippi last night on his way to the White House.
King Abdullah is smart(ass) enough to tell the west that they are not
to combat terror, but he himeself uses terror to keep the
women in his kingdom in the
dark ages. (YouTube)
At least be man enough not to prosecute others for the
crimes you are committing.
And above all, do not portray yourself as the defender of public
Democratic primaries and caucuses are a clear indication that the
process should be rethought and reorganized. How is the message of the
to "get out and vote because your vote counts" to be trusted when, even
for a two-
body race, the final decision is to be made by some "secret" and
"obscure" body of
non-elected "superdelegates"? Then, they will again blame the youth for
Anatolyevich will succeed
The populace approved overwhelmingly the succession by a show
Why do people insist on doing things that they have proven very weak at
in the past? Kofi Annan is smart enough to realize that mediation has
been his strong point...
Anyone in need of a good lough should read the interview of Dictator
Pakistan in the
Wall Street Journal. Notice that he has always done the opposite of
what he preaches.
1. "The confrontational politics of the
1990's should be left behind."
2. "The president has his own position but has no authority running the
government. The clash would be if
the prime minister and president
would be trying to get rid of each other. I only hope we would avoid
3. "...we bring about a stable democratic government to Pakistan."
4. For the supreme court: "...don't think it's legally possible to
reinstate them" after he fired them!
5. Can you assure people that Pakistan's history of military coups is
just that -- history? His response?!!
"One can do that very confidently. We have brought
institutional checks and balances that
would prevent any impulsive
behavior from anyone."
6. Illusions of a dictator. How does he want to be remembered?!! "I
would like them to remember that
I served this country and people
honestly with full dedication and that I performed. This is how I see

Maybe the Kosovo Serbian enclaves?
Musharraf's terrorist state and police should be held accountable for
slain of Benazir Bhutto. Pakistanis should get rid of this tyrant
and abominable human (?) being sooner rather than later...
border-free zone expands!
Although I am a strong supporter of the EU project, I feel that with the
signing of the
European treaty in Lisboa and its ratification by parliaments,
the EU governments have surpassed their authority.
A move as important as this, with far reaching potential
consequences, that has proven in the past rather
controversial among EU citizens, should have definitely gone through
national referenda. The fact that EU
leaders do not want their citizens to vote on the document is, by
itself, a fortifying argument for this opinion
and a bad omen for what this treaty is bringing. It does not seem to
have as its primary goal to solidify the
democratic traditions of the member states...

Ahmadinejad honored this

Why do you care about OSCE observers
boycotting Russian elections if your
government is the one that is placing
restrictions on them in the first place?
I think that the Kremlin has to improve its mental functions...

At last, at last, at last... BBC refers to
Musharraf as "General". Gone
now is the unwarranted title "President", although the title "Dictator"
is the one that fits his position, by any person's definition. The time
come... Plus, Rice condemned the emergency rule.
The BBC reporting on the blast in
Pakistan that killed scores of people
writes: "President Musharraf said the attack was a "conspiracy
