10-03-2007 02:14The US so far has not directly targeted the clerical leaders of Islamic Republic namely Supreme Leader Khamenei and former president Rafsanjani. Instead, it has pointed at President Mahmood Ahmadinejad who has stayed firm against US pressures.

08-03-2007 20:32It was nice to see some democracy and justice within a courthouse, for a change.
I would like to offer Judge Wadsworth a huge bouquet of roses and many thanks. After seeing the likes of the bent DJ Evans, the corrupt DJ Snow and their crony DJ Purdy, I have had a small amount of my faith restored in the justice system. For the minute, anyway...
08-03-2007 17:24The intense pressure from Washington on President General Pervez Musharraf of Pakistan to be cooperative in the "war on terror" is yielding dramatic results, although perhaps not of the kind initially anticipated.
