THINKING OUT LOUD

A couple of years ago I had set up a wifi system around my house but it was down, I am thinking of making another one and I am going to name it "wifi republic".

I am going to re-organize my blogs too, now I am testing some templates, trying and testing them at this stage. I am trying to fully utilized the latest blogspot editor. Not doubt that they are better with many needs that are taken care of. However the new blogspot editor lack fluidity where we can used different blog templates for different categories of posts or entries.

However I had thought of this new format. Try
anak matlesen to see the new format. The present PERWI is slightly messy as I had attempted to master the new blogspot editor. I think by doing that I had taken extra "memories".

I am still in the learning curve and I may not proceed with the present idea for I have to evaluate either to follow the existing system that blogspot new editor provide or do the necessary such as amending the html on the free template that I had obtained satisfactorily to get a system that I want.

Abizaid: US Could Be in Middle East For 50 Years


02/11/2007

It might take as long as half a century before US troops can leave the volatile Middle East, according to retired Army General John Abizaid.

"Over time, we will have to shift the burden of the military fight from our forces directly to regional forces, and we will have to play an indirect role, but we shouldn't assume for even a minute that in the next 25 to 50 years the American military might be able to come home, relax and take it easy, because the strategic situation in the region doesn't seem to show that as being possible," Abizaid said Wednesday at Carnegie Mellon University.
The rise of 'extremism', the Arab-Israeli conflict and the world economy's dependency on Mideast oil will keep Americans in the Middle East for a long time, he said.

Iraq war source's name revealed

Chemical weapons rockets unilaterally destroyed by Iraq after the first Gulf War
The US cited Mr Alwan's bio-weapon claims in its war argument
A US TV network has revealed the name of "Curveball" - an Iraqi man whose information was central to the US government's argument to invade Iraq.

The CBS show 60 Minutes identifies him as Iraqi defector Rafid Ahmed Alwan.

The programme says he arrived in a German refugee centre in 1999 where he lied to win asylum and was not the chemical expert he said he was.

His claims of mobile bio-weapons labs in Saddam Hussein's Iraq were backed until well after the 2003 invasion.

US spin doctors fib about Iraq


Fri, 02 Nov 2007 22:01:11
By Bita Ghaffari, Press TV, Tehran


Western print and broadcast media have been giving much hype to an apparent decline in violence-related deaths of US soldiers and Iraqi civilians in October 2007.


Figures say 875 Iraqi civilians have been killed in Oct. compared to 1,023 in Sept., while the number has fallen to 36 for US military personnel from 65 during the same period.

It can be safely argued that the civilian death toll is much higher, for a large number of fatalities are never reported.

Airline bans A380 mile-high club


Singapore Airlines has taken the unusual step of publicly asking passengers on its new Airbus A380 plane not to engage in any sexual activities.

The potential problem has arisen because the first class area of its giant superjumbo contains 12 private suites complete with double beds.

Singapore, which is the first airline to start flying the A380, said the suites were not sound-proofed.

It said it did not want anyone to offend other travellers or crews.

London's police force has been found guilty of endangering the public over the shooting dead of a man officers mistook for a suicide bomber.

The force has been fined £175,000 and ordered to pay £385,000 in costs.

Oil approaches fresh high of $94


Tue, 30 Oct 2007 10:36:26

Oil futures have surged to a new record near $94 due to the falling value of dollar and Mexico's plan to cut oil output by 20 percent.

"The dollar seems to be the force that's driving us now," said Phil Flynn, an analyst at Alaron Trading Corp., in Chicago.

Light, sweet crude for December rose $1.67 to settle at a record $93.53 a barrel on the New York Mercantile Exchange after rising as high as $93.80 earlier.

Soaring oil prices and weak dollar have caused the price of gold to spiral to new record high, ever witnessed during the past 27 years.

The precious metal was traded at a peak of $794.70 per ounce in the London market, the highest price since January 1980.

Since gold price moves in tandem with oil prices, as the US dollar slides, investors often purchase gold as a protection against economic trouble, political turmoil and inflation hedge.

“50 Years of Constitutionalism and the Rule of Law"


Bismillahi Rahmanir Rahim.

This year marks the 50th year of our nation’s Independence. It is also the 50th year of our Merdeka Constitution.

Malaysia and its people have every reason to celebrate this joyous occasion as the country prospers as a constitutional democracy with a constitutional monarchy in the form as established by the Merdeka Constitution in 1957. Not all countries that achieved their freedom at the end of the colonial period are today able to celebrate their independence with pride. Some are under military rule, whilst others have had their institutions undermined or even abolished.

America's self-defeating hegemony

America's self-defeating hegemony
Tue, 30 Oct 2007 17:04:02
By Francis Fukuyama

When I wrote about the "end of history" almost twenty years ago, one thing that I did not anticipate was the degree to which American behavior and misjudgments would make anti-Americanism one of the chief fault-lines of global politics.


And yet, particularly since the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001, that is precisely what has happened, owing to four key mistakes made by the Bush administration.

First, the doctrine of "preemption," which was devised in response to the 2001 attacks, was inappropriately broadened to include Iraq and other so-called "rogue states" that threatened to develop weapons of mass destruction. To be sure, preemption is fully justified vis-à-vis stateless terrorists wielding such weapons. But it cannot be the core of a general non-proliferation policy, whereby the United States intervenes militarily everywhere to prevent the development of nuclear weapons.

The cost of executing such a policy simply would be too high ...

The United States said it would offer its co-operation in the project.

Profile: Iran's Revolutionary Guards - What the Western Media says

The Guards have some of Iran's most advanced military equipment
Iran's Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) was set up shortly
after the 1979 Iranian revolution to defend the country's Islamic system, and to provide a counterweight to the regular armed forces.

The Revolutionary Guards' power and influence are such that the US government has designated it a "proliferator of weapons of mass destruction" and its elite overseas operations arm, the Quds Force, a "supporter of terrorism".

Civilian presence

The Guards also have a powerful presence in civilian institutions, and control the Basij Resistance Force, an Islamic volunteer militia of about 90,000 men and woman and a mobilisational capacity of nearly 1m.
