    Carroll Quigley, in the course of his examination of the failure of most Latin American / South American nations-states, delivered an astonishing analysis of what he believed to be the root cause of these failures in the first edition (1966) of his renowned Tragedy and Hope. Here, in almost an aside, he defines what he calls the "Pakistani-Peruvian axis" - a combination of Asian despotism and Arabic outlook (key word, that - outlook), both of which have their roots in Bronze Age antiquity, that pervade what Quigley calls the shattered cultures that dwell on its axis from Pakistan to the...

    ISLAMABAD — Text books in Pakistani schools foster prejudice and intolerance of Hindus and other religious minorities, while most teachers view non-Muslims as “enemies of Islam,” according to a study by a U.S. government commission released Wednesday. The findings indicate how deeply ingrained hardline Islam is in Pakistan and help explain why militancy is often supported, tolerated or excused in the country.

Asked during an Appropriations hearing whether the reading of Miranda rights had impeded the investigation, Holder said, “No, it did not. As we have seen in prior investigations, the giving of Miranda warnings has not deterred people from talking to us, and Mr. Shahzad is, in fact, continuing to cooperate with us.”

    ISLAMABAD (AP) — U.S. accusations that Pakistan is supporting Afghan insurgents have triggered a nationalist backlash and whipped up media fears of an American invasion, drowning out any discussion over the army's long use of jihadi groups as deadly proxies in the region. The reaction shows the problem facing the United States as it presses Pakistan for action: Strong statements in Washington provoke a negative public response that makes it more difficult for the army to act against the militants — even if it decided it was in the country's interest to do so.

The attack on the U.S. Embassy and NATO's Afghan headquarters resulted in a 22-hour firefight - with American troops pinned down on roof tops.

A video clip taken from the Pakistani side shows it was Babur making dangerous manoeuvres behind Godavari. The video was shot during the MV Suez rescue episode in June. The Pakistan warship brushed against the Indian warship in gross violation of all navigational norms. The dramatic images clearly establish that the Pakistani ship approached the Indian ship from behind and therefore it was fully at fault. What makes this interesting is that...

It includes, however, not only property (movable and immovable) but also persons, whether in the capacity of asra (prisoners of war) or sabi (women and children). … If the slave were a woman, the master was permitted to have sexual connection with her as a concubine....

    War On Terror: Washington finally has done what it should have done years ago: deny aid to Islamabad unless it can show its cooperation is more than just a facade to milk the U.S. for more cash. After Pakistan ordered U.S. military trainers out of the country — in retaliation for the clandestine raid on Osama bin Laden's compound — the administration held back $800 million in aid to the Pakistani military. The cut amounts to only a third of promised aid this year. And it was measured. The lack of trainers means that planned U.S. equipment can't be put...

    As the US announces it is to withhold military aid to Pakistan, find out how much money America has given to the country since 1948. The dataset comes from Wren Elhai, at the Washington-based Center for Global Development (CGD), who in May published a report along with Nancy Birdsall and Molly Kinder analysing the long-term impact of US aid to Pakistan. The numbers - which come from the US Overseas Grants and Loans database and the Congressional Research Service - have been adjusted for inflation and are presented in terms of the value of the US$ in 2009.

    ( – The days of saying “Yes, boss” to the United States are over, Pakistan Prime Minister Syed Yousuf Raza Gilani said at the weekend, in a further sign of the deepening rift between the two countries. Confirmation Sunday that the Obama administration has suspended $800 million in aid to the Pakistani military came just days after Joint Chiefs of Staff Chairman Adm. Mike Mullen alleged that Pakistani security officials “sanctioned” the recent murder of a Pakistani journalist investigating jihadist infiltration of the military. Mullen’s remark drew an angry denial from Islamabad, which earlier set up a commission of inquiry...
  • In Pakistan, many say aid 'snub' dims US sway

    The decision to suspend more than one-third of American military aid to Pakistan could end up hurting Washington more than Islamabad as the U.S. seeks to navigate an end to the Afghan war and defeat al-Qaida, former Pakistani officials and analysts warned Monday. Holding back the $800 million in aid is unlikely to pressure Pakistan to increase cooperation with the U.S. and could strengthen those in the government who argue that Washington is a fickle ally who can't be trusted, they said. "If you still need the relationship, which clearly the United States does, then it really doesn't make sense...

    Pakistan may have okayed journalist's death - Mullen By David Alexander WASHINGTON | Fri Jul 8, 2011 3:31am IST WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The slaying of a Pakistani journalist in late May apparently was sanctioned by elements of the Islamabad government, the top-ranking U.S. military officer said on Thursday, adding that he could not confirm involvement of the country's powerful intelligence service. Admiral Mike Mullen said he didn't have a "string of evidence" linking the death of Pakistani journalist Saleem Shahzad to a specific government agency, but "I have not seen anything that would disabuse that report that the government knew...

    Pakistan college contest: Praise for bin Laden LAHORE: Two months after the covert US raid that killed Osama bin Laden, posters emblazoned with images of the burning World Trade Center towers appeared at the country’s largest university advertising a literary contest to glorify the slain al Qaeda chief. The poem and essay competition at the prestigious Punjab University shows the footholds of hard-line radicals on college campuses and growing efforts to raise their profile and influence even in the relatively cosmopolitan atmosphere of Pakistan’s culture capital, Lahore. The contest’s organisers have kept their identities hidden. But many students and teachers...
