Trying to follow the U.S. policy on the proliferation of nuclear weapons is like watching a three-card monte game on a city street corner. Except the stakes are higher.

The announcement Friday that the United States is authorizing the sale to Pakistan of F-16 fighter jets capable of delivering nuclear warheads .
US thrown away thousands of Iraqi and American lives and billions of U.S. taxpayer dollars after crying wolf on Iraq's long-defunct nuclear weapons program and now expect the world to believe similar scary stories about neighboring Iran.

We have cozied up to Pakistan for more than three years as it freely allowed the operation of the most extravagantly irresponsible nuclear arms bazaar the world has ever seen.

We sabotaged negotiations with North Korea by telling allies that Pyongyang had supplied nuclear material to Libya, even though the Bush administration knew that the country of origin of those shipments was our "ally," Pakistan.

The White House says the F-16s are a reward to Islamabad for its help in disrupting terrorism networks, despite a decade of Pakistan's strong support of Al Qaeda and the Taliban government in Afghanistan.

"In an effort to increase pressure on North Korea, the Bush administration told its Asian allies in briefings earlier this year that Pyongyang had exported nuclear material to Libya," wrote the Post. "But that is not what U.S. intelligence reported, according to two officials with detailed knowledge of the transaction."
Sources told the paper that "Pakistan's role as both the buyer and the seller [of uranium hexafluoride] was concealed to cover up the part played by Washington's partner."

From Iraq to Iran, North Korea to Pakistan, the Bush administration has pulled so many con jobs that it is difficult for anybody to take it seriously.

Just hard to ask true or true!

"a more piable middle east.."

Thats a fragmented, destablised, semi-war zone situation.
After fifty year of this zionist policy in Palestine where peace was the greatest obstruction to the expansion of zionist power in the middle east.
State terrorism on the part of Israel has submerged the Palestians under the same types so the peaceful Palestinians never get anywhere near the power or the money poured in
through various means (why Arafats wife is a very rich lady today, swiss bank accounts etc) so there is a perpetual state of
destablisation and military type politics.
Lebanon is destroyed and incapable of becoming a united and positive nation, Iraq no need to comment. Syria could be next
and the US/Zionist policy is to break up Iran internally. Even Saudi Arabia isnt so secure or stable, the whole lot could be broken up like the Balkins ten years ago.

It is difficult for men in high office to avoid malady of self delusion. They are always surrendering by worshipers and war voters. Illusion is the first of all pleasures.

But Wars never end the way starters had in mind.

U.S. Programs Aided Kyrgyz Opposition
- The speaker of Kyrgyzstan's new parliament traveled to the United States last year on a U.S.-government-funded program to observe the presidential election. So did the acting president.

Newspapers that railed against President Askar Akayev in the months before his ouster last week at the hands of opposition protesters were printed on a U.S.-funded press. Kyrgyzstan has received more U.S. assistance per capita than any other ex-Soviet republic in Central Asia.
The upheaval that swept Akayev's foes to power last week struck a country once squeezed by Akayev's increasingly control-minded regime and now emboldened by a promise of change championed by forces that benefited from U.S. funding.
Among them: a handful of opposition newspapers that have been rolling off a truck-sized printing press marked "United States Government Department of Democracy, Human Rights and Labor," housed at a former laundry on a remote stretch of road in the capital, Bishkek.
The press has operated since November 2003 under a program of the New York-based rights and democracy group Freedom House. The project has received more than $1 million in U.S. government funding.
The press, meanwhile, received generators rushed over by the U.S. Embassy after the electricity was cut off, allowing it to print 182,000 copies of an opposition paper ahead of the first round of voting Feb. 27.
The battle became part of a war of words waged by Akayev against the West, in which he claimed opposition forces were getting international funding.
The rhetoric is familiar from Russia

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Pope John Paul II is an inspiration for millions of Americans and President Bush is praying for the ailing pontiff, the White House said on Friday. http://www.reuters.c...storyID=8066685

And not only Bush should have so good opinion about Pope, but Clinton as well.
Pope during his visit in Colorado Youth Festival gave Clinton blessing on US attack on Yugoslavia , what costs 5000 Serbs lives and demise of Yugoslavia country.
Pope was good Slavs seller to American slavery, and we Slavs never forget that.
Maybe we will finally get information on UN member , Vatican country investment ?

"At the time when communism was breaking down, finally, and needed strong people who were prepared to push those boulders aside, and to make it possible for tyranny to end in Europe, the pope was ... one of the most important actors in that great (drama)," Rice told reporters.
"If you look at what happened in 1989 and 1990 and 1991 you cannot but help recognize the tremendous contribution of Pope John Paul II to those dramatic events and, therefore, to freedom," she said. "And he didn't stop there. He has continued to be a voice for those who are oppressed, for those who are seeking freedom." http://www.reuters.c...storyID=8066685

So might be the truth that he is circumcised ..

In 1917 the New York bankers bought democracy for Rusians and many surrounding nations when they funded a revolution against royal dictatorship and they are doing it all over again from what?

The UN made sure Iraq was free of WOMD so the US could invade.

Why does the world find out now what great things the Pope is supposed to have done for freedom of the nations that were part of the Soviet Union and Warsaw Pact? And how do we know if it is just claimed without any detail?

Howcome the catholic countries had the biggest communist parties?

Front and back stage of Pope John Paul;

Bush Hails Pope as 'Hero for the Ages'. What one could prefer; Stalin or Bush applause ?

The Holy See recognized Taiwan, was openly critical of Buddhism (the Catholic Church's biggest competitor), the religion that is in parts of south-east Asia such as Sri Lanka, Laos and Cambodia..

In India, Fundamentalist groups protested fiercely against the Pope's visit to India in 1999, accusing him of seeking to convert low-caste Hindus, as well as Muslims. Yet India is watching the succession race closely - Bombay-born Cardinal Ivan Dias, 68, as a candidate to replace Pope John Paul.intercepts from http://news.ft.com/c...000e2511c8.html
I applaud the position of China ; , Beijing's demand that all religious institutions recognise the authority of the Communist party ahead of their churches.:)

Pope is dead and Berlusconi by a tube fed .
Silvio Berlusconi has probably suffered a stinging defeat at key regional elections on Sunday and Monday, according to exit polls reported by national TV station RAI.

Berlusconi's center-right coalition appeared to have lost all but two regional governments of the 13 at stake, the exit polls said, holding on to just Lombardy and Veneto -- both in its stronghold in northern Italyhttp://story.news.yahoo.com/news?tmpl=story&cid=574&ncid=732&e=6&u=/nm/20050404/wl_nm/italy_elections_dc

Ethiopia said the first piece of an ancient Axum obelisk will return home from Italy on April 11. The top piece of the obelisk will leave Rome on a cargo plane. The obelisk has been cut into three sections .
The stele, weighing 160 tons and standing 24 meters high, is around 1,700 years old and has become a symbol of the Ethiopian people's identity. In 1937, the Italian fascists dismantled and taken it . :D
Ethiopia is one of the oldest continuous civilizations in the world. The first known civilization in Ethiopia was that of the mighty Aksumite Kingdom. Having established itself in 1,000 BC, . Axum was first capital of Ethiopia.

Howdy Woj:

The Arabs should demand a homeland be granted for them at Germany's expense.
Jews were given Arab lands when the Arabs didnt lose the war, the Germans did. Germany should have given up territory for European Jewish state after the war ( if one believes that is the way to settle grievances) not the Arabs.

So the Arabs then should carve off a chunk of Germany with the UN blessing.

The the Arabs would have somewhere to immigrate to.

Beijing demands God worship the Chinese Communist Party.

It is about Japan but it is true for any bloody war. The Japanese Education Ministry on Tuesday glorified Japan's invasion of its neighboring countries more than half a century ago.
Take the Nanking Massacre in 1937 for example, when Japanese troops ghastly slaughtered more than 300,000 Chinese in over 40 days. The mass killing was only mentioned in just one short sentence: "Chinese soldiers and civilians suffered many casualties due to Japanese troops."
According to the book, Japan's 1931 occupation of China's northeastern provinces, which were rich in natural resources, was nothing to be blamed for. The text book does not mention Japan's history of aggression and its crime but says "the Manchukuo (a puppet regime created by the Japanese) witnessed economic growth and significant personnel inflow."
Over the motive for Japan to launch the war, it says, Japan "initially wanted to acquire resources... but (the war) also offered an opportunity to accelerate independent movements in Asian countries."
The textbook depicts its soldiers killed and abused civilians of other countries as were following the common practice in
Japan's Senior Vice Education Minister Hakubun Shimomura said recently that it was not appropriate to include the word "comfort women" and its bio-chemical experimentation unit 731 during its invasion in China in junior high school textbooks.


How come a country that repeatedly distorted its history be allowed to assume such an important UN role?
The crimes committed by Japan's militarists during WWII are irrefutable.
http://news.xinhuane...ent_2791444.htm

Do only crimes during WWII are irrefutable or crimes during peace time ever after?
Some countries think this way now but is very short vision .
