The rise and fall of nations.


Lesson for conservatives elsewhere too. I say, read between the lines! I don't need to say much about other nations. The cartoon shows the brothers in arms.

These two things caught my attention as well:
1. Post Wahabism
2. Post 9/11 world

TSK! TSK! MY Dear President is becoming a Symbol of Social Embarrassment


Musharraf Denies Rape Comments:

"Then, as the reporters prepared to move to the next question, Musharraf interjected the comments about rape as a moneymaking concern, saying it was the 'popular term' in Islamabad.
'It is the easiest way of doing it,' he continued. 'Every second person now wants to come up and get all the [pause] because there is so much of finances. Dr. Shazia, I don't know. But maybe she's a case of money, that she wants to make money. She is again talking all against Pakistan, against whatever we've done. But I know what the realities are.'"

I am back but my lips are sealed


Blog censorship handbook released

A handbook that offers advice to bloggers who want to protect themselves from recrimination and censors has been released by Reporters Without Borders.

Iranian authorities have been clamping down on mainstream media for some time, but it has recently turned its attention to cyber-dissidents and bloggers. Campaign groups say at least two dozen Iranian bloggers have been jailed as a result of the clamp-down. It is estimated that there are some 46,000 bloggers in the country.
The issue of blog censorship and freedom of speech is truly global, however. In June, Microsoft's MSN Spaces site in China started to block blog entries which used words such as "freedom", "democracy" and "demonstration".
Microsoft said the company abided by the laws, regulations and norms of each country in which it operates.
China recently introduced regulations that required all blog owners to register their sites with the state by 30 June.
