News Around the World-9/8/2006

India may grab a mere 30 seconds in the news, but there is much more to this article that could possibly be covered in such a short-sighted exploit. I have five articles that are in the news which may not receive the significant attention they deserve. This is why I am writing about these article.

First of all, Darfur, Sudan is in grave danger. The Sudanese army is planning to wipe them off the map, or so it would appear. How else could you explain dropping bombs on whole villages just to get rid of a few people who disagree with you?
"Millions of people are already at grave risk," said Antonio Guterres, the U.N. high commissioner for refugees. "Hundreds are still dying amid ongoing violence, and thousands are still being forcibly displaced."

Sudanese government forces on Aug. 28 launched a major offensive believed to involve thousands of troops backed by bomber aircraft and helicopter gunships in a bid to flush out rebel strongholds in the troubled western region. [Read the whole article.]
Next we have have an article about Iran, the USA, and the UN. This is unbelievable. Why are we wasting time? Why are we not funding the pro-Western, pro-Democracy groups? Why are they not coming together? Could it be because of our stupid State Department's stupid policy of allowing ex-presidents from countries we consider the worst sponsers of terrorism? Hmm...
Speaking a day after meeting fellow political directors from Germany, Britain, France, China and Russia in Berlin, Burns said more talks on Iran would take place over the phone on Monday.

"The American view is that following these discussions on Monday and perhaps some others early next week, we should move this to the Security Council and draft a (sanctions) resolution," he told reporters. [Read the whole article]
Can you understand why the people in Iran that have been working so hard for their freedom are losing faith in America? Our actions speak louder than words. The State Department needs to go. It is doing more harm than our enemies.

Pakistan has had a successful intelligence payload. They have captured some weapons being smuggled into their country from Afghanistan. These weapons were supposedly to be used for sabotage purposes.
The official, who declined to [be] identified, said the action was taken following an intelligence tip-off that arms and ammunition were being smuggled into southwestern Baluchistan province for sabotage activities.

The cache included six RPG rocket launchers and an anti-tank mine as well as mortar bombs, hand grenades and a machine gun. [Read the whole article.]
Many people have lost their lives in this area over the past few years.

Another attack has brought India to high alert to keep the peace in her country. This attact was against a highly Muslim population, possibly to frighten them from having peace within India.
NASHIK, India - Two bombs rigged to bicycles tore through a crowd of Muslim worshippers leaving Friday afternoon prayers at a mosque, killing 31 people and injuring 100 in what a top official called "a terrorist act".

Authorities clamped a curfew over the western city of Malegaon, which has a long history of violence between Muslims and Hindus, to stop revenge attacks. Past sectarian attacks have set off spiraling violence. [...]

Pasricha told reporters that "the motive appears to be to create panic and make Hindus and Muslims fight with each other." [Read the whole article.]
They have seen many years of violence in this area. India is hoping to avoid any retaliations.

Here is a prior article about the same story.
