The Cold War is Over

bush2007.jpgGeorge Bush got something right yesterday and deserves kudos for it. Missile defense is key to the future safety of all the world. The nuclear djinn is out of the bottle, and it will never be put back again.  This from his speech yesterday:

Washington, DC. President George W. Bush stood strong and called out President Putin today on Missile Defense before leaving to Germany where they are going to meet at the Group of 8 Leading Industrial Nations summit meetings, next week.

“The Cold War is over,” President Bush stated. “We’re now into the 21st century, where we need to deal with the true threats, which are threats of radical extremists who will kill to advance an ideology, and the threats of proliferation,” he further commented. “I’m deeply concerned about Iran having a nuclear weapon that could fly toward Europe, or, for that matter, toward any other allies,” Bush said. “And we don’t want to ever have ourselves in a position where the world could become blackmailed. And, therefore, one way to deal with this issue is through a missile defense system.” The President closed his comments by saying of the third missile defense site in Europe, “We think it’s the right thing to do.”

In Pakistan one Christian has been sentenced to death after a brownshirt neighbor turned him in for making comments derogatory to the prophet during an argument. The Christian sentenced to death won’t be the last as the religious extremists like Maulana Ghazi from Lal Masjid/Jamia Hafsa and others in Pakistan search for scapegoats and victims.

The authorities in Islamabad have closed a nurses hostel due to “disrespect to the holy Quran” and put five Christians on suspension while they investigate.

The charge?  Two nursing students with connections to Jamia Hafsa reported that a Koranic verse on a water cooler was defaced.

Pakistan Update

iftikhar-demonstration.jpgThe demonstrations continue for Chief Justice Iftikhar while the trial goes on. The army has taken umbrage at the criticism by lawyers, and there’s some back and forth on that for the political situation. Current consensus is that if Musharaaf makes it past June that he will survive. Meanwhile Baitullah Mehsud continues his assassination campaign in the frontiers, attacking followers of Sherpao, and the on and off attacks by the Taliban against the Frontier Constabulary continues in Tank.

The Tale of an Iraqi Hero

Musahem Al Jabouri, a police officer only four months on the job thwarted the attack of an Al Qaeda truck bomber, intent on breaking terrorists out of a jail. He ran out from the compound as the truck approach and shot the driver but died in the explosion. His brother received an award commemorating his valor from the US Forces, as Iraq does not have medals yet. Video from CNN below, but first this quote from Al Jabouri’s surviving brother, Bassim Al Jabouri:

I think my brother is a martyr, but the insurgents are not martyrs. They will go to hell. They are evil in this world.

This is so true — Al Qaeda and the Taliban have murdered more muslims than the American forces, and they continually destroy lives, mutilate men, women, and children, and try by every means to crush the future and the dreams of the Iraqi people.

Judge Refuses to Toss Wiretap Evidence in Padilla Case

marcia-cooke.jpgExpect the ACLU to go ballistic – today a United States District Court Judge hearing the Padilla case refused to toss out wiretap evidence as requested by the defense. WTG Marcia Cooke! (That’s Marcia in the Middle of this photo taken at a Broward County Federal Bar Association luncheon meeting,) The defense has also tried to have the word “terrorist” and “terrorism” banned, along with Osama Bin Laden, and other terrorist names. AP has filed a motion for release of the tapes once they are admitted as evidence, so expect some interesting recordings soon.

Taliban Target Schools

I almost did a story on this last night when I read the new article in the Pakistan Daily Times but to me it’s old news. This has been going on a long time.

The Taliban cannot stand against soldiers or real men, so instead they attack women and schoolgirls. They burn the schools, they throw acid in the faces of girls walking to school, and they kill teachers. With the Taliban it’s always the women and children who suffer most.
