    The civilized world is now united against Iran. Can the American president exploit the opportunity? After Eugene “Bull” Connor, the sheriff of Birmingham, Ala., turned dogs and fire hoses on black protesters in May, 1963, John F. Kennedy observed that “the Civil Rights movement should thank God for Bull Connor. He's helped it as much as Abraham Lincoln.” It was the perfect putdown. Connor had been a hero to Southern bigots. JFK, with one withering remark, condemned him to that most ignoble form of immortality for a Southerner. He would forever be remembered as the butt of a Yankee joke....

    It’s time to clear the air about our relations with the United States and how they impact on our immigration policy. Recently, a very frustrated Paul Martin turned up the heat on the Americans after they persisted in refusing to play fair on the softwood lumber issue. The prime minister’s message clearly got the attention of our southern neighbours. Conservative pundit Tucker Carlson replied on Dec. 19 saying: “Anybody with any ambition at all, or intelligence, has left Canada and is now living in New York.” As if that wasn’t enough, he added that Canada “is like your retarded cousin...

    James Jesus Angleton explains it all. "Oh, come on! You expect me to believe that?" I was recently back at the ouija board with my old friend, the late James Jesus Angleton, once upon a time the head of CIA Counterintelligence. I had wanted to talk to him about the latest warnings from the interminable 9/11 Commission, a.k.a. The Monologue That Will Not Die, that we hadn't done enough with homeland security. I knew his view of the commission was much like mine — namely that these guys need a day job. Or maybe a Caribbean cruise. Or maybe a...

    A few months after 9/11, President Bush authorized the National Security Agency (NSA) to eavesdrop on Americans and others in the US without having to obtain the court warrants normally required in these situations, according to government officials. The New York Times reports that as a result, the NSA has monitored the international phone calls and e-mails of "hundreds, perhaps thousands" of people living in the United States. Before Sept. 11, 2001, the NSA limited its spying in the US to foreign embassies and missions and obtained court orders for such investigations. Officials say the government still seeks warrants for...

    U.S. is 'walking the walk' when it comes to environmental issues, David Wilkins says OTTAWA — The Bush administration issued a sharp, public rebuke today to Prime Minister Paul Martin for dragging the Canadian-U.S. relationship into the federal election campaign. Ambassador David Wilkins said Canada risks damaging one of the world’s best relationships by focusing on short-term political gain. “It may be smart election-year politics to thump your chest and criticize your friend and your No. 1 trading partner constantly,” Wilkins said in a speech to the Canadian Club at the historic Chateau Laurier Hotel, next door to Parliament Hill....

    "Iranian people's feelings toward Israelis are not as bad as you think," Saeed Kharazi Zadeh, a greying Iranian IT engineer told me after I introduced myself as a reporter for The Jerusalem Post. Zadeh was part of the Iranian delegation which had a booth at the UN Summit on Information Society held in Tunis November 15-17. I reminded the 48-year-old government employee that in October his president declared that "Israel should be wiped off the map." I told him that many Israelis fear that Iran would indeed try to attack Israel. Zadeh laughed incredulously. "There have been many terrorist actions...

    When Australian police announced recently that eight men arrested on terrorism charges were planning a bomb attack against a nuclear reactor near Sydney, many security observers elsewhere were not surprised. Officials and analysts in the United States have been warning that al-Qaida or associated groups are planning such attacks on American soil. Dubbed American Hiroshima, the plan apparently targets New York, Miami, Los Angeles, Philadelphia, Chicago, San Francisco, Las Vegas, Boston and Washington, DC. Former US Defence Secretary William Perry says there is an even chance of a nuclear attack on the US this decade. Renowned investor Warren Buffet has...

    (Angus Reid Global Scan) – Republican Rudy Giuliani would defeat Democrat Hillary Rodham Clinton in the 2008 United States presidential election, according to a poll by Canisius College. 49 per cent of respondents would vote for the former New York City mayor, while 34 per cent would support the Empire State’s junior U.S. senator. In a sample of decided voters, Giuliani holds a 16-point lead over Rodham Clinton. Giuliani garnered national and international attention in the aftermath of the 9/11 terrorist attacks. In 2000, Giuliani withdrew from a campaign to the U.S. Senate—where he would have faced Rodham Clinton—after being...

    Iran on Thursday warned against growth of Islamophobia in certain countries particularly in the European ones, saying it could entail the danger of confrontation of religions and civilizations. Iran's Representative to the UN General Assembly's third Commission, Mostafa A'laie, was addressing the Commission on the importance of fighting racialism. "Since the 9/11 incident, a new wave of discrimination, violation of civil rights and hatred of Muslims has emerged in many of the Western communities. "This unpleasant trend has been intensified after the 8/7 terrorist attacks in London, leading to loss of lives on certain occasions," he said. Quoting the UN...

    WASHINGTON – President Bush went on the offensive Thursday with a spirited justification for the war on terror that sought to refocus Americans on what he sees as the central undertaking of this century: defeating the forces of Islamic radicalism. In a speech that outlined his administration's step-by-step plan for confronting the 21st century's "ideology of hatred" and that restated why the battle is so important, Mr. Bush sought to address not only waning attention to the war on terrorism but also the debate over exactly why the US and the West are targets. Citing 9/11 and a string of...
  • Death to "Diplomacy" with Iran

    European "diplomacy" with Iran--now supported by Washington--is self-destructive The widely hailed diplomatic effort led by Britain, France and Germany is touted as a reasonable way to settle the dispute over Iran's suspected nuclear weapons program without any losers. By enticing Iran to the negotiating table, we are told, the West can avoid a military confrontation, while Iran gains "economic incentives" that can help build its economy. But this deal--now backed also by the Bush Administration--can only strengthen Iran and turn it into a greater menace. The European deal--which is said to include the sale of civilian aircraft and membership for...

    As the fourth anniversary of the Sept. 11 attacks approaches, the Left is still tirelessly re-scripting this ultimate legacy of the Clinton-Gore Administration: The gross negligence and complete dereliction of duty of Bill Clinton in preventing the worst terrorist attack ever perpetrated on American soil. For this reason, Clinton?s role on Sept. 11, and why he must be held accountable for his blood-guiltiness, can never be overemphasized. In fact, Lt. Col. Robert ?Buzz?

    Moroccan man who was friends with three of the 9/11 suicide hijackers has been found guilty in Germany of belonging to a terrorist organisation. Mounir al-Motassadek, 31, was sentenced to seven years in prison following a year-long retrial. However, the court in Hamburg ruled there was no proof that he knew about the 11 September 2001 plot. Motassadek was originally convicted of those charges in 2003 but the verdict was overturned and a retrial ordered. After the original conviction was quashed by Germany's Supreme Court last year, the retrial heard new evidence - excerpts of interviews with key al-Qaeda suspects...

    When American bombs were raining down on what is left of Afghanistan, fellow Muslims in the neighbouring Islamic republic of Iran took out to the Streets. Contrary to our expectations in the West, they did not rally to denounce the 'Great Satan' - the name given to America by the late Ayatollah Khomeini. Instead, ordinary Iranians, in one of the most extraordinary shifts in the geopolitical landscape since September 11, challenged their own hard-line Islamic clerics who swept Shah Mohammed Reza Pahlavi from power in 1979. Tens of thousands of men and women also demonstrated, in several cities, after World...

If the landscape of Afghanistan bears the craters of the endless war, the political and military leadership in Afghanistan also carries war's indelible scars.

His father was a colonel in the Afghan Army and enrolled his son at Kabul's Lycee Istiqlal High School. Upon graduation Mas'ud joined Kabul's Polytechnic Institute.

    Baltimore Mayor Martin O'Malley yesterday compared President Bush's proposed budget cuts to the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks, saying that Bush, like the al Qaeda hijackers who crashed planes into the World Trade Center and the Pentagon, has launched an assault on America's cities. "These cuts, ladies and gentlemen, are sad. Irresponsible. They are also dishonest," O'Malley (D) told a packed news conference at the National Press Club, where mayors and area officials had gathered to decry Bush's plan to slash spending on community development programs by $2 billion. "Back on September 11, terrorists attacked our metropolitan cores, two of...
