The near assassination of US politician Gabrielle Giffords shows how extremism and violence in America threaten to poison world peace in 21st century. This is the time to ask America to act. Forget Sudan and Afghanistan. Time to save America.
Complaints in Pakistani media about selective and politically-motivated manipulation of WikiLeaks cables by New York Times, Guardian and Der Spiegel prompt the whistle blowing website to expedite the release of cables on India.
US diplomatic cables released by WikiLeaks show the mistrust US officials harbor toward Indian leaders. The former Indian army chief Gen. Kapoor is described by one cable as ‘incomptenet combat leader’ with ‘unrealistic war doctrines’. The current Indian army chief is dubbed as ‘egotist’ and ’self-obsessed’. Privately, US diplomats admit Karzai has allowed India and Iran to expand intelligence presence inside his country. Israeli spy chiefs are accused of raising assassination teams and drawing up war plans against Iran.
Wikileaks does not make the material it receives available directly to the public. They are first censored by New York Times and several other prominent newspapers.

China’s ambassador to Islamabad calls for a new security regime in Asia and pledges ‘unselfish and unconditional’ support to Pakistan on the eve of Pakistani President Asif Ali Zardari’s visit to Beijing. Equally important is Chinese Premier Wen Jiabao’s announcement today of a proposal to Pakistan to establish a permanent mechanism for structured dialogue between Pakistan and China. The paper released by Ambassador Liu Jian in Islamabad, and published by Project For Pakistan In 21st Century, dwells at length on China’s policy outlook on Pakistan, the situation on the Korean Peninsula and the South China Sea, and border disputes in Asia.

A small gesture by the Chinese president in the heart of Portugal’s capital, Lisbon, won him the admiration of people throughout Europe. Mr. Hu was inspecting the guard of honor when a cavalryman of the Portuguese National Republican Guard fell of the horse. Mr. Hu left his protocol and leaped to see if the man was needed help.
Ignoring unwarranted US meddling, China and Pakistan are going ahead with a fifth nuclear reactor for civilian uses in Pakistan.
