India has been engaged in a peace process with the very neighbour it knows is out to dismember it through any and every means available to it.br> India, like the United States, has been at war with Islamist terrorists for years now. And as with the United States after 9/11, it has every right to hold nations responsible for harboring and abetting the terrorists who attacked it. However, the risks of this confrontation are potentially much more grave: one hopes that two nuclear powers, and two allies of the United States, can be deterred from an all-out confrontation over this issue.
Is it any surprise that terrorists continue to attack India with impunity?
Contrast this with the way America has gone about its business since September 11, 2001, and you will see why that nation has not faced any attack in the last five years. Osama may fume and fret from his mountain hole, but there’s little more than that he and his terrorist hordes have been able to achieve against the only remaining superpower.
That is because America understands that war can only be won through war, it cannot be won through peace, a belief India has been labouring under for so long.
If Pakistan is serious about avoiding a war — possibly a nuclear war — with India, it should hand over Dawood Ibrahim to face Indian justice. The United States, in its efforts to maintain the peace between the two nations, should insist on no less from Pakistan. And if Dawood Ibrahim’s testimony brings down the Islamist wing of the ISI, the world will be a better place for it.
A man of faith in a godless age is hitting Americans where it hurts.
Mr. and Mrs. American Spectator Reader, let P.J. O’Rourke talk sense to your kids.
In Britain, defending your property can get you life.
The debacle of this president’s administration is both a cause and a symptom of the decline of American values. Unless Congress impeaches him, that decline will go on unchecked. An eminent jurist surveys the damage and assesses the chances for the recovery of our culture.
It won’t take long for conservatives to scratch this presidential wannabe off their 2008 scorecard.
The American Christmas, like the songs that celebrate it, makes room for everybody under the rainbow. Is that why so many people seem to be hostile to it?
Was the President done in by the economy, or by the politics of the economy?
