SAY NO TO MILITARY DICTATORSHIPS HERE AND IN PAKISTAN!

I don’t have a lot of time to make a proper analysis of the situation in Pakistan today but I wanted to take some space here to reflect on Democracy.  How is it that our President claims to have invaded Iraq to unseat a military dictator who does not believe in Democracy AND YET will support Musharraf  in his bid to overrun democracy in Pakistan.

Now the unpopular Pakistani strongman has imposed a state of emergency, disbanding the Supreme Court, shutting down the media and basic freedoms, and imprisoning democratic opposition leaders and activists. The ‘Emergency” is a cover to buy the time for backroom deals to ensure Musharraf’s political survival.   All the while the populist former PM, Benazir Bhutto is blockaded into her home by the military and prevented from attending the opposition rally. 

Peace Action is asking you to join with other peace activists:

Call the Pakistan Embassy (202.243.6500) and tell them the international community is watching and expects the rule of law to be restored; 

Contact the State Department and say “Stop sending military and security funding to Pakistan until the constitution is restored and free, fair elections are ensured.” Call 202.647.6575 and press 1 to leave your comment.

    I must say that these are very sad days for Pakistan. The person we thought is going to help Pakistan move forward turns out to be a snake with many siblings in the shape of Shukat Aziz and many other cronies. This person has damaged the image of Pakistan all over the world. When I go to Office here in North America, my staff ask me about this snake and his motives. This snake has shed Pakistani nation’s blood worth few million american dollars for which he and his cronies are very proud.

    Pakistan is a great country and my heart bleeds to see what is going on in Pakistan today like many other brothers and sisters of this country.

    With all that in mind, I am sure this country has the ability to bounce back. I hope that this country will have the courage to get rid of this snake soon by the grace of God.

    Thank you for your words and perspective. I too am very sad so Pakistan. My simple understanding of the history and culture is limited but I know enough to say that Pakistanis are proud, value knowledge and friendship. I know they invest in one another for a greater future. I know all this too about Americans. We all have our snakes; in the government and in industry. I only hope the PEOPLE, both here and in Pakistan, can take back the proud legacy of our nations.

    SUPPORT OBAMA, NOT THE SAME OLD SYSTEM!!

  4. YES! WE THE PEOPLE ARE “ KICKING-BUTT”, WE ARE TAKING (OUR) COUNTRY BACK !!

    The special-interest industry in Washington has only grown since the last election, and it will spend more money than ever this time to try to own our political process and dictate our policies in Washington.

    That special interest money is her downfall.

    Now her attacks on Barack Obama in desperation will only hurt her chances. Her record of standing with the Bush administration indicates same old business as usual.

    Ten percent of the cost of the $165 million Bill Clinton presidential library is said to have come from foreign individuals and governments,

    A Middle East Country gave the Clinton facility in Little Rock about $10 million, roughly the same amount it gave toward the presidential library of George H.W. Bush, according to people directly familiar with the contributions.

    ALL AMERICAN PEOPLE: African, Hispanic, Asian, Native,

    Middle class Americans need to unite and demand CHANGE.

    We voiced it to no avail 2006 elections, now we will demand it 2008

    elections. Please help elect the candidates for change. A team of

    Barack Obama and John Edwards

    AMERICA OF FOREIGN AGENTS
    HAS NOW BECOME
    OUT-SOURCED AMERICA
    THE DESTRUCTION OF REAL AMERICA.
    AMERICA’S INDIGNATION
    There is no difference in political parties today.
    The syndicate control is, and
    has been in charge, for many
    years.
    Most dramatically since JFK,
    RFK, and MLK.
    Controls by AIPAC, ICSEP, Winep,
    and Costa Nostra, until NOW!
    We need a new party.
    UNITED 4 AMERICA.
    Native Americans–Population
    4.1 million.
    Black Americans-Population
    36 million.
    Hispanic Americans-Population
    37.4 million.
    Asian Americans-Population
    11.9 million.
    Middle class Americans
    That is all Americans for America.
    TOGETHER WE CAN
    “TAKE BACK OUR COUNTRY”

    CIVIL-CONSTITUTIONAL-ECONOMIC RIGHTS FOR US. NOT
    FOREIGN AGENTS AND COUNTRIES.
    No lobbies, Corporate monies,
    Foreign Influence, and keep
    our religious freedoms by
    separation of Church and State.
    Fair taxation, fair trade. Tax
    imports. KICK-BUTT

    NOW IS THE TIME TO DO JUST THAT, WE AMERICANS ARE DOING JUST THAT,

    WE ARE TAKING OUR COUNTRY BACK.

    WE DO NOT NEED A THIRD PARTY. BARACK OBAMA AND JOHN EDWARDS

    HAVE STEPPED UP FOR THE AMERICAN PEOPLE, ALL AMERICANS,

    A REAL CHANGE. ONE AMERICA.

    CAMPAIGN REFORM, ELECTION REFORM, REFORM IN LEADERSHIP. AGAINST SPECIAL

    INTEREST AND CORRUPTION OF THE PAST SEVERAL YEARS.

    VOTE IN THE PRIMARIES, VOTE IN THE ELECTION TAKE OUR COUNTRY BACK WITH

    OBAMA—-EDWARDS

    Once again OTHER Democratic “leaders” are betraying our troops by keeping them in Iraq forever to be murdered or maimed for no reason except the insatiable greed of Bush-Cheney’s oil cronies.

    WE believe Peace is achievable, but we have to control the “WAR-PROFITEERS”.

    “ INJUSTICE ANYWHERE IS INJUSTICE EVERYWHERE”

  5. VOTE FOR OBAMA & EDWARDS:

    JOE LIBERMAN, ENDORSES JOHN MC CAIN , AS AN ISRAELI SUPPORTER NOT AMERICAN.

    HE HAS BEEN BOUGHT BY AIPAC THE SAME AS CLINTON THE SAME AS BUSH & MC CAIN.

    HE SEES CLINTON LOSING TO OBAMA & EDWARDS, THUS JUMPS TO MC CAIN FOR ISRAEL,

    AND THE HUMAN RIGHTS VIOLATORS OF THE MIDDLE EAST.
