I was just reading the nytimes news report (dt: December 24, 2007) that US officials see waste in Billions of American money sent to Islamic Republic of Pakistan, a country located in South Asia, defamed for harbouring Global terrorists and terrorist organizations like Al kaida, taliban, lashkar a toiba.

This American money had been diverted to help finance weapons systems designed to counter India, not Al Qaeda or the Taliban, the officials said, adding that the United States has paid tens of millions of dollars in inflated Pakistani reimbursement claims for fuel, ammunition and other costs.

This is now evident, as they used the American money to enrich their goal of making improvised Islamic nuclear bomb with the help of china. They succeeded in their plans, they made nuclear bombs, proliferated the nuclear technology to terrorist states like North Korea in exchange of missile technology and still harboring global terroirsts and reaping money.

But US strategists and law makers are still sleeping, they are not understand the pakistan is making fool of them and reaping US tax payers money for their own cause of developing¬† weapons of mass destruction. Recently, U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said that the United States would provide $100 million to Pakistan in humanitarian aid such as food, tents, radios, generators and other items and that the U.S. Defense Department would give a further $10 million in unspecified assistance. After announcing this huge money of $110 million to Pakistan, she said that “Providing this assistance is not only the right thing to do but we believe it is essential to global security and the security of the United States and we are prepared to do more as the situation demands,” .

Clinton also described the last three decades of U.S. policy toward Pakistan as “incoherent,” saying that the United States had worked with Pakistan to arm the Mujahideen fighters who helped drive the Soviet Union from Afghanistan in the 1980s only to effectively abandon both countries.

She needs to understand that they shake hands with US for their own strategic interests and they got huge money in return of their grey support to US during these years.

They are now a bigger threat than afganistan and long time enemy Russia…as it is now starkly evident that they are the biggest nuclear proliferator regime in the world.

A recent Congressional report has told US lawmakers that North Korea received designs for uranium enrichment centrifuges from Pakistan’s disgraced nuclear scientist A Q Khan in return for its long range missiles.

I don’t understand the use of AQ khan instead of Pakistan because North Korea has provided missiles to Pakistan not to AQ Khan. North Korea has been exporting missiles to countries in the Middle East and South Asia and has had joint collaboration in development of missiles with Iran and Pakistan, it said.

In the 1990s, North Korea exported Scud and Nodong missiles to Pakistan, Iran, Yemen, Syria and reportedly Egypt. It entered into joint development programmes with both Pakistan and Iran.

Pyongyang received designs for uranium enrichment centrifuges from Pakistan nuclear “czar” A Q Khan and has attempted to purchase overseas key components for uranium enrichment centrifuges, but some of these purchases have been blocked, according to the report.

Even after so many reports were declassified to US law makers they are still providing hundreds of millions of dollars to Pakistan and they in turn are conspiring with Iran and North Korea to design new power corridor by developing weapons of mass destruction. I am not a strategic analyst, nor I am a defense person…¬† I am just a common citizen but still I wish to know from our responsible / sensible government, why they are directly/ indirectly supporting terrorist nations.



Free Carla Bruni CDs anger French taxpayers

A French government initiative to give away thousands of Carla Bruni CDs for free to promote exports has sparked an outrage in France amid plummeting popularity of President Nicolas Sarkozy, whom she married after a lightning romance last year.

The album will be dispatched to admirers of the former Italian supermodel-turned pop singer with wine and cheese vouchers.

French taxpayers are outraged that up to 1 million pounds of their money has been transferred to marketing agency Sopexa to plug the Italian-born singer’s songs.

Many believe France has still not digested the initial “bling bling” phase, symbolised by Sarkozy’s whirlwind romance with the Italian heiress.
At least 14,000 people in 19 countries have applied to receive one of the gift packs through the Ministry of Agriculture initiative.

Those set to get the free Bruni CDs have been asked to organise “Gallic evening” to showcase France’s best exports and then put their promotion on internet sites.

The former supermodel’s third album was released soon after her marriage to Sarkozy last year but sold less than 90,000 copies in France.

Bruni shrugged off the vitriolic reviews of her last album, saying: “It’s understandable that people can’t help mixing up my work as an artist and my official role.

As Sarkozy completes two-year in office, sixty-three per cent have written off his first 24 months as a failure, according to a poll today for Metro newspaper, with only 28 per cent holding a positive opinion.
