Iraq is going to be another Vietnam, it will give rise to countless Taliban type fanatics…yada yada yada. Neither happened however. Funny enough, Obama is NOT criticised for a mistake of even greater proportions in Tunisia and Libya. ( For more analysis on Libya and Tunisia… )
2. ” I was disappointed at the prospect of spending the next three years of my life in a country not advanced by any means; and one that was inhabited by people whose skins were even darker than mine! ”
Suffice to say, this memoir of a retired Pakistani ambassador to Sri Lanka is borderline racist.
4. A Saudi – Iranian cold war is taking shape. Which is interesting, as it has potential to destabilise Middle East. Allright, that was a bad joke. Destabilise Middle East MORE…
5. Finally, a wonderful blogpost on Occupy Wall Street, which I recently came across. All the more interesting, because the authoress herself went to the protests, and is now disillusioned with the ever increasing mob mentality and unleashed hooliganism. Like I said!
