Osama Bin Laden has been captured and killed by a military operation conducted by the US Navy SEALs in Pakistan’s Abbottabad. This execution, however, does not necessarily mean an end of terrorism. Rather, the seeds of terrorism lie in the imperialist policies of United States itself, which will - if it has not already - give birth to a thousand more bin Ladens.
A blog post on President Obama's recent defeat in US midterm elections and his visit to India
The David Headly affair has exposed the duplicity of the US government in fighting terrorism.
A wide debate has started after Barrack Obama has been awarded this year's Nobel Prize for peace. With Obama himself calling it unexpected and acting humble, sentiments have gone from calling it a farce to a recognition which was not deserved to putting the cart before the horse (where it is not Obama delivering on his promises which earned him the Nobel but the Nobel would play in his mind when he still has a long tenure in the Oval Office).
The murders along the Wall of Shame on the U.S border with Mexico; the compliant silence in face of Israel’s slaughter of children, women and the elderly in Gaza; the blockade of Cuba; the protection given to terrorists like Posada Carriles; the policy that protects those who torture, murder and commit terrible crimes from being tried or punished, constitute overwhelming evidence that the empire is the worst example in terms of human rights. The seeds of Auschwitz are latent,writes Inés Míriam Alemán.
President Zelaya has increasingly come under attack by the conservative forces in Honduras for his growing relationship with the ALBA countries, and particularly Venezuela and President Chávez. Many believe the coup has been executed as a method of ensuring Honduras does not continue to unify with the more leftist and socialist countries in Latin America,writes Eva Golinger,about the US backed military coup in Honduras.
For those who believe that one can effectively fight and defeat the Taliban by aligning with this destructive troika live in a fool's paradise,writes Ammar Ali Jan.
In an article for the Guardian, John Pilger calls on his long experience with Cambodia's struggles in lamenting missing faces in the dock at the UN-backed trial of crimes committed during the Khmer Rouge period. Where are Pol Pot's accomplices and collaborators in the West?
''While as usual ignored as irrelevant to policy formation, U.S. public opinion is close to that of serious analysts and also to world opinion. Large majorities oppose threats against Iran, thus rejecting the Bush-Obama position that the U.S. must be an outlaw state, violating the UN Charter, which bars the threat of force. The public also joins the majority of the world's states in endorsing Iran's right, as a signer of the NPT, to enrich uranium for nuclear energy (the position endorsed also by Cheney, Rumsfeld, Wolfowitz, Kissinger and others when Iran was ruled by the tyrant imposed by U.S.-UK subversion). Most important, the public favors establishment of a nuclear-weapons-free zone in the Middle East, which would mitigate and perhaps eliminate this highly threatening issue. Such observations as these suggest an interesting thought experiment. What would be the content of the "Obama brand" if the public were to become "participants” rather than mere "spectators in action"? It is an experiment well worth undertaking, and there is good reason to suppose that the results might point the way to a saner and more decent world'' - Argues Veteran Political Commentator Noam Chomsky in the article published in Z magazine
