Pakistan and the "Global War on Terrorism"

09-01-2008 19:01

The existence of an outside enemy sustains the illusion that the "war on terrorism" is real. It justifies and presents military intervention as a humanitarian operation based on the right to self-defense. It upholds the illusion of a "conflict of civilizations". The underlying purpose ultimately is to conceal the real economic and strategic objectives behind the broader Middle East Central Asian war.

Historically, Pakistan has played a central role in "war on terrorism". Pakistan constitutes from Washington's standpoint a geopolitical hub. It borders onto Afghanistan and Iran. It has played a crucial role in the conduct of US and allied military operations in Afghanistan as well as in the context of the Pentagon's war plans in relation to Iran.

07-01-2008 13:00

The Israel Defense Force (IDF) has developed a tiny bulldozer for combat operations inside Palestinian cities, according to Bamahaneh, an Israeli military weekly.

05-01-2008 08:44

"The stories we know about the most famous terrorists and the best known terrorist plots do not match up with the facts.
