India and Pakistan Tensions

There are many military confrontations around the world, most fostered by the United States which seeks domination as its prerogative, because, as President Obama declares, it is «the one indispensable nation in world affairs». In addition to Washington’s pursuit of military supremacy, however, there are other international predicaments, not the least dangerous of which is the long-standing confrontation between India and Pakistan...

Why Gun Control Should Start at the Pentagon

On October 3 rd , the United States bombed a hospital in Kunduz, Afghanistan. Despite the fact that the hospital provided GPS coordinates to the U.S., despite the nine-foot flag on the roof marking the building as a hospital, and despite repeated pleas by hospital staff to U.S. officials to stop the bombings, the U.S. continued to bomb the site for over an hour. Among the 22 dead following the attack were children, patients, and medical personnel from Doctors Without Borders. Thirty-seven others were also injured...

AfPak hat-trick is doable for Obama but unlikely

It makes good copy for the Indian press that the United States National Security Advisor Susan Rice made a rare trip overseas to Pakistan in the weekend with the intent to read the riot act to the country’s army chief Gen. Raheel Sharif regarding the unfinished business of reining in the Haqqani Network.

India, Pakistan Choose to Remain Disengaged

It is a familiar sight when India-Pakistan interactions raise hopes but only to end up as damp squib. In fact, that is a well-established pattern, and the bleached landscape is littered with carcasses of India-Pakistan summit meetings...

Punishment Of Innocents by Sanctions

In June 2015 some 1,200 people died from the effects of an extreme heatwave in Pakistan. Temperatures reached 44 degrees Centigrade (111o Fahrenheit) and the scenes of suffering were heart-rending. As CNN reported : «At the Jinnah Post Graduate Medical Centre in Sindh’s capital, Karachi, heat stroke victims are wheeled in daily, swelling the numbers well beyond capacity. The overwhelmed doctors and nurses do what they can... Family members tend to many of the patients, wiping their brows with sponges and keeping them cool with wet, grimy towels... At the Edhi morgue, the largest still operating in Karachi, the picture is even more dismal... Daily power outages mean the cold storage unit that houses bodies is hot and sticky. The dead, it seems, are denied the dignity they deserve»...

The Bin Laden Murder Mystery

Seymour Hersh, a great journalist with superb sources and the courage to challenge conventional wisdom, has presented a counter-narrative of the 2011 raid that killed Osama bin Laden, but Hersh’s story – compelling in many respects, even to the New York Times – has some elements that stretch credulity, says John Gardner.

The Key War on Terror Propaganda Tool: Only Western Victims Are Acknowledged

In all the years I’ve been writing about Obama’s drone killings, yesterday featured by far the most widespread critical discussion in U.S. establishment journalism circles. This long-suppressed but crucial fact about drones was actually trumpeted as the lead headline on the front page of The New York Times yesterday.

When Will Obama Apologize for All the Other Innocent Victims of Drone Strikes?

In the fall of 2013, Rafiq ur Rehman, a school teacher from the remote tribal region of North Waziristan, in Pakistan, stood with his 12-year-old son, Zubair, and 9-year-old daughter, Nabila, in Washington, D.C., preparing to challenge one of the U.S. government’s most secretive means of killing.

Geneva Peace Talks Suspended: Syria Faces Further Escalation of Conflict

The Syrian opposition has stymied the UN-sponsored peace talks in Geneva. Having refused a dialogue with the delegation of the Syria Arab Republic, its delegation left the talks. UN special envoy Staffan de Mistura halted the negotiation process until February 25...
