Views of a Veteran

  0 comments   |     by Usman Khalid

The Indo-Zionist lobbies have long campaigned that the USA replicates the First Gulf War in Pakistan before it withdraws from Afghanistan. With President Obama having mouthed words of demonization of Pakistan himself, there is fear that the USA may submit to the wishes of Indo-Zionists. But he may be dissuaded from striking Pakistan if the cost is too high. Pakistan&r

Mass Graves in Kashmir

  0 comments   |     by admin

The state human rights commission of the Indian-ruled portion of Kashmir reported its investigators had found 2,156 bodies buried in unmarked graves in 38 locations. Most were young men. Many bore bullets wounds. Grisly and horrifying as this discovery was, there was hardly a peep from India’s allies, notably the United States and Britain, who have raised s

Mapping U.S. PK Relations: Present and Future

  0 comments   |     by C. Christine Fair

Officials and voters in the United States often cite a "trust deficit" to explain the perennially tumultuous, frequently tortured, and always tenuous relationship between the United States and Pakistan over the last ten years. Many are wont to point out how the United States "failed Pakistan " throughout its history beginning in 1962 when it armed Pakistan 's neme

Would Obama try for a settlement with Taliban

  0 comments   |     by George Friedman

Well, according to what’s been said by the administration, they are attempting to negotiate with the Taliban right now. I think, either way you play it politically, it’s equally troubling for President Obama if he doesn’t have peace by the time the election, the charge can be made that he has an open-ended war, that he doubled-down on Bush’s po

The Global Worth of Human Life

  0 comments   |     by Jahanzeb Hussain

I wonder how Europe and North America would react if the victims of 9/11, 7/7 and Madrid bombings were universally declared as nothing but “collateral damage”. It is simply unthinkable that victims who happen to be citizens of imperialist countries can be deprived of their humanity, the value of their life negated and their memories brushed under the rug.

Pipeline from Iran

  0 comments   |     by admin

While previously relying on relatively mild signalling and posturing in trying to lure Pakistan away from the Iran-Pakistan gas pipeline project, the United States has now come right out and said it: it wants Pakistan to drop the project altogether.  Pakistan also needs to draw a very clear distinction between UN sanctions and those imposed by the US. Pakistan is

Fighting Phantoms in India

  0 comments   |     by Aijaz Zaka Syed

When I first heard of Salman Rushdie I was at university. The Satanic Verses had set off a perfect storm in India and around the world. The book was banned in India following fiery protests by Muslims. Many died in Mumbai when police opened fire on angry protesters. Then came Ayatollah Khomeini’s fatwa sanctioning the novelist’s death, sparking a global de

Should India worry about the Dragon in Nepal?

  0 comments   |     by Vijaya Rajiva

The author is trying to promote his own misguided agenda. He fails to tell us why Delhi provided shelter and conducted secret meetings with the Maoist leaders Prachanda and Baburam during the Maoist insurgency. Why did India sell rifles and machine guns to the Maoists? Without Indian support, these Maoists would never have succeeded against the Nepal army. Then after
