Mubarak, Auckland Transport
In Egypt, the future of Hosni Mubarak looks ever more distressing. His son, may well be his chosen successor. But there is only one Caliphate in the Muslim world, and that is Syria. Hosni's son is not the man who Egyptians want. He is a lightweight businessman who may – or may not – be able to rescue Egypt from its own corruption.
Hosni Mubarak's security commander, a certain Mr Suleiman who is very ill, may not be the man. And all the while, across the Middle East, we are waiting to see the downfall of America's friends. In Egypt, Mr Mubarak must be wondering where he flies to.
Haaretz writer Akiva Eldar said Al Jazeera's bombshell "trump(ed) WikiLeaks."
The documents released by WikiLeaks appear to reinforce the allegations contained in The Palestine Papers, which describes many instances where the PA has worked closely with Israel.
"confiscated ammunition and explosives routinely were handed over to Israeli military".
The separate documents released by Al Jazeera reveal an exchange in 2005 between the PA and Israel on a plan to kill a Palestinian fighter in the Gaza Strip. Others tell how the PA and Israeli officials discussed collaboration between the Al Aqsa Martyrs' Brigade, the armed wing of Fatah, and Israeli security forces.
..Before BO got elected, I noted him at a Apaic meeting in USA hailing an undivided Jerusalem as the capital of Israel

Manila Bus bomb
Bacalzo said the improvised explosive device (IED) used in the bombing was an 81-mm mortar shell with a cell phone as remote trigger.
Bacalzo said investigators were checking if the same type of IED was used in past terror attacks, particularly in Central Mindanao.
“That’s the thing we are following up because according to the EOD (explosives and ordnance division), it’s an 81-mm mortar. If it’s a mortar, then the component was TNT,”
Assumption: Only Radical Non-Christian Religion &; LTTE possess the passion sufficient for suicide bomb attacks
But for non-suicide attacks, mere callous indifference to suffering is required. Whenever a bomb is NOT a suicide, ie remote or timer detonation, then anyone may be responsible. Double cross, triple cross.
The police attempting to incite hatred against insurgents.. The USA attempting to sow dismay... etc etc
- a fervent anti conservative rant ...
"George Soros is an excellent citizen" - really?
Its excellent to make billions by trashing a currency?
GS, he seems to be promoting a "nice" USA Hegemony.
Would GS agree to a tax on International Financial transactions?
Did GS support Mahathir's currency freeze?
