Happy New Years Everyone!

A true tradegy is when a girl in the country of Pakistan is being punished for being a Christian. Shameful that our Government sends Tax Dollars to represent Islam Government but what gets my goat is when that poor Christian girl has been sent to prison. The guilt and shame will follow the country of Pakistan. An argument over the condition of the water between a Muslim woman and Christian girl. The Muslim woman commented how the water is unclean when the Christian girl touched or had a drink from it. The water does NOT belong to Islam or Christians, it belongs to people that God created. The Christian girl replied something negative in Islam which lead to her arrest.

If the country of Pakistan does not change its ways or rules, or continues to treat Christians this way, "NO US Dollars should be given to this country." Why should Christians be paying for this Arb country?, when they are indeed out of line, out of date, and certainly out of touch with the 21th Century towards human rights and certainly religious concerns. Equal rights for religion of any faith should exist. My tax dollars should NOT be paying for Islam Leaders to punish Christians. I believe there should be a full inquiry over this situation. How many more cases in Pakistan exist and go without notice. This is wrong... People around the world should have a choice for religion.

How can the State Department sit idle knowing this poor girl is in prison because she expressed her christian view freely. If that was your daughter, would you sit back and do nothing? Some daughters recieve the best education given to them, while others have to survive with the basics. NO Christians in the world should be treated like this, no human beings sent to prison because they didn't follow the counries religion. They spoke out, and get arrested? God intended Religion to be free, you are given a Choice. If your being punished because you believe in a faith, whether its Christian/Islam or whatever, civil and human rights of the person are being violated. You can count on one thing...In the end God will Judge your actions or failure to act when our people our own Christians are being violated by a lack of taking action to prevent this. I do NOT support a Nation that will punish a girl over religon or a person who believes in God. If ONE US Dollar goes in the hands of the Leaders of Pakistan and they continue to treat Christians like this, "There will be plenty of faces in the Hall of Shame" with God. I will do one thing, pray for that girl since our State Department hasn't even made an effort to help her.

but,

Seoul will be lost in the third purse. Last chance? Perhaps, if I re-identification and no money to think back to Pohang MB or related to the behavior of people think. 'll Raise the money to go away from you, over and over again makes sense. Gaeopneyo can not do anything ... The story would have lost, or to the actions of other people thought I'd try to talk.

I can`t anything.

Do you hear my words?

Happy New Year, Secretary Clinton and the staffers!
I'd like to take this opportunity to share some thoughts on perhaps the most important front of our foreign relations, namely Russian/Eurasian one, how it should be conducted and what perhaps should be changed in it, in the coming year. as it stands, it is becoming more evident by an hour that the current Russian ruling regime is still, for all "changes" of last 20+ years, our main rival on international stage, using every bit of influence, including such that it only obtained after collapse of Soviet system, and with our own help, to obstruct our policies pretty much in every region of Earth-- from Middle Easy to Latin America, from Ivory Coast to North Corea, and especially in former USSR proper. Vladimir Putin imprisons his political rivals and simply independent people; poisons emigres, bribes his way through international sports agencies, threatens arms race with US(in which light i deem the START treaty ratification a mistake, since its failure would mean a new arms race which Russia inescapably would lose, leading to regime's complete collapse, which would be absolutely in our interests), and does many other openly hostile acts towards us. yet, at the same time, there's a new nationalist but perhaps not totalitarian and not truly anti-western movement, born in Russia, to which we should at least take a note, and maybe even try to befriend--especially since the more liberal community there is both very small and totally unreliable, as evidenced by the events of the 1990s. much like with the "Axis powers' in World War 2, the regime currently ruling Russia needs to be recognized as an enemy, but the country's people, as future friend and ally. The Russian populace is growing fed up with rampant corruption, violence, the failed North Caucasus policies, growing food and utility prices, technological backwardness, filth on the streets and roads and so on. standing up for Khodorkovsky is good, but we'd make a better name for our cause if we stood up for the majority of Russian people's rights as well. Lets not dismiss the notion of national and ethnic aspirations of Russians that easily; if we want there to be a democratic Russia, which will be our reliable ally, its political system must include forces of all ideological persuasions, nationalist, conservative, and leftist included-- not just limited to liberal ones. imagine Russia were truly on our side, and abandoned its support of Lukashenko, Kim John Il, Ahmadinejad, Chavez, Mugabe, Hamas and every other dictator it currently supports! it'd also help to sway China over to our side, as it alone would go against USA, Russia and Europe. and this would spell the end of near every totalitariian oppressive regime out there, and true liberation of the world! but for that, the mother of all totalitarian regimes-- that currently ruling Russia proper-- needs to go, or at least significantly change; and it is in our power to steer it in such direction
With Hope for Liberation in the New Year, Season's Greetings to all! :)

Happy New Years

In the Hunt for Osama bin laden or his right hand man. My latest hunch is South/West Pakistan. The reason I came up with this location, is because all the Media reports North West. If these guys watch our Media Coverage, than common sense would indicate they would head South NOT North. Besides, Osama bin laden was always someone living in the Southern areas, like Yeman, Sudan and in Pakistan. So our Intelligence folks need to seriously look at the Southern Quarter near the border for the Taliban Leaders.
