Why the Hardliner won in Iran Election

Many analysts making fuss with the hardliner, Ahmadinejad, landslide victory over Hashemi Rafsanjani.

Whereas the reason is simple:

* The former (Ahmadinejad) live simple life while the latter (Rafsanjani) is rich and live among the riches.

* The former promises employment, while the latter promises freedom and democracy (when you need a basic life, who needs democracy and social freedom, anyway?)

Bush adress on Iraq and war on terror (2)

Bush address on Iraq is nothing new: full of repetition, apologetic, not knightly said about their administration failure in iraq; not honestly said about the wrong war for the wrong reason. terrorism was not exist in iraq. it’s exist now after american invasion.

for democrats americans who vote against him: two thumbs up for you for not voting him, you are the friends of the peaceful world. for republicans who blindly support bush for whatever he’s doing: learn the hard way or america will be remembered by history as the most stupid superpower ever exist!

Bush Address on Iraq and War on Terror

George W. Bush address last night on US’ position on Iraq and war on terror, unfortunately, not interesting. it’s full of repetition, cliche and apologetic. No plan B was mentioned. so, the US troops still there in Iraq as long as the “Iraqi people” needed. who’s the so-called “iraqi people” anyway? before election result, they are the few iraqis who were picked by the US who parroting what the US man, paul bremer, want them to say. after election, the iraqi people means those who’s been elected by the people. well, it’s little bit makes sense now. but remember, they are only elected by the shiite citizens, while the sunnis (around 40 percent or iraqis) did not elect them.

40 percent is huge. should the US will go home untill the the 40 percent population keep quiet? should americans still there as long as the sunnis still sparking the insurgency? well, civil war will last long. the iraqis is nothing to lose, including their own soul. it’s the americans who gonna lose everything for the adventure they dont really understand.

anyway, what really urges Bush administration to attack in the first place? why looking for problems instead of solving it? all reasons and logic which urged to go to Iraq has been diminished: WMD, biological weapons, etc and now what? terrorism? tell you americans who still ill-informed about iraq: before invasion of US, no terrorists ever dare to land in iraq. now, as senator edward kennedy said, iraq becomes the heaven for terrorist training.

i respect the 45 percent democrat americans who didnt vote for bush reelection. and for another 55 percent republican, i can simply say: learn the hardway, my friend. even the moron dont stuck to sheer stupidity all the time.

America: Yes, We did torture those Prisoners

No comment on the breaking news from the AFP below: that for the first time the US admits of torturing the prisoners in Abu Ghraib Iraq, Guantanamo Bay Cuba, and Afghanistan.

I hope the ill-informed Americans (unfortunately consist of majority of Americans) know and start to be aware a little bit why america got so many enemies; and why they are hated by most.

I hope they dont say “why they attacked us?” “what wrong we’ve done to them?” “we’ve done nothing wrong. they’re just jealous towards our prosperity”

i hope, the well-informed americans who can see outside world more clearly will increase day by day. i hope. because only then we can learn, respect and understand each other more and in more equal term.

‘US admits detainees were tortured’

Surf ‘N’ Earn -Sign innow

GENEVA: Washington has for the first time acknowledged to the United Nations that prisoners have been tortured at US detention centres in Guantanamo Bay, as well as Afghanistan and Iraq, a UN source said on Friday.

The acknowledgement was made in a report submitted to the UN Committee against Torture, said a member of the ten-person panel, speaking on on condition of anonymity.

“They are no longer trying to duck this, and have respected their obligation to inform the UN,”the Committee member said. “They they will have to explain themselves (to the Committee). Nothing should be kept in the dark.”

UN sources said it was the first time the world body has received such a frank statement on torture from US authorities.

The Committee, which monitors respect for the Convention against Torture and Other Cruel, Inhuman or Degrading Treatment or Punishment, is gathering information from the US ahead of hearings in May 2006.

Signatories of the convention are expected to submit to scrutiny of their implementation of the 1984 convention and to provide information to the Committee.

The document from Washington will not be formally made public until the hearings.

“They haven’t avoided anything in their answers, whether concerning prisoners in Iraq, in Afghanistan or Guantanamo, and other accusations of mistreatment and of torture,”the Committee member said.

“They said it was a question of isolated cases, that there was nothing systematic and that the guilty were in the process of being punished.”

The US report said that those involved were low-ranking members of the military and that their acts were not approved by their superiors, the member added.

The US has faced criticism from UN human rights experts and international groups for mistreatment of detainees – some of whom died in custody – in Afghanistan and Iraq, particularly during last year’s prisoner abuse scandal surrounding the Abu Ghraib facility there.

Scores of US military personnel have been investigated, and several tried and convicted, for abuse of people detained during the US-led campaign against Islamic terrorist groups.

At the Guantanamo Bay naval base, a US toehold in Cuba where around 520 suspects of some 40 nationalities are held, allegations of torture have combined with other claims of human rights breaches.

The US has faced widespread criticism for keeping the Guantanamo detainees in a “legal black hole”, notably for its refusal to grant them prisoner of war status and allegedly sluggish moves to charge or try them.

Washington’s report to the Committee reaffirms the US position that the Guantanamo detainees are classed as “enemy combatants,”and therefore do not benefit from the POW status set out in the Geneva Conventions, the Committee member said.

Four UN human rights experts on Thursday slammed the United States for stalling on a request to allow visits to terrorism suspects held at the Guantanamo Bay naval base, and said they planned to carry out an indirect probe of conditions there.[]

Torture in Guantamo and USA Image

CNN yesterday reported the UN statement that the torture on Guantanamo did and still happen. earlier, the confirmation of torture came from the icrc (red cross). that’s why, the US dignitaries and dignified politician calls for the closure of guantanamo bay prison which is rejected by the US politician (read, republican and its supporters) who dont care about their image abroad as long as they can torture the muslims, innocent or not.

the most important things are THE US now cannot claim or proud itself as the champion of democracy and human right. now, the US and americans no better than what they call as the axis of evil, the arab dictators, etc. US administration and the american who support them are equal. equality of barbarism and uncivilized manner in handling human rights, injustices, etc.

what the point the US make when they wanna invade iraq to overthrown saddam, when they themselves do the same atrocities in abu ghraib prison? in afghanistan? in guantamo bay? the little differents are the US sometimes make and does in more shopiscated way with so many sweet coverage from the “embedded-prostitute media”.

what the difference between Saddam and Bush? Rumsfeld and Mullah Umar of Taliban? Wolfowitz and King Fahd of Saudi Arabia?

any americans who read this, please remember one thing: dont rush to comment. sit and think deep. u’ll come into conclusion that in the days/month/year ahead, americans should not wonder whenever the anti-americanism grow not only in the muslims world but also anywhere but in the US. and when it happens, never think that we hate you because of jealousy. because if you think so, you are the most stupid pompous guys in the world who just dont know what’s happening outside your own world in the era of internet; more ironic it might be given the fact that it’s american citizen who invented the technology of internet.

Do Muslim Hate the Jews?

The answer is no. Do muslims hate the israeli invader and occupier? Yes.

all nonmuslim and westerners should be able to see the difference between the two.
muslims dont feel any hatred whatsowever against the jews as the community. muslims hate the israeli for simple reason: they occupied the land of palestinian. they are the newest imperialist who survive till date because of patronisation of the US.

and that’s the only reason why hatred against america and israeli reach beyond the muslim world: any person with anti-colonialism ideal in mind will condemn of what the israelis did, has been and are doing against the palestinians people; and against america which make anything (atrocities, massacre, injustices) the israelis has done and still doing possible.

if you read history of islam, you hardly found the enmity between muslim and the jews. many skilled jews were working or became honorable officials in the islamic caliphate in bygone era.

i see only the american guys who stay in america and never going abroad who never understand this very important point. my american brothers and sisters pleas just understand this point.

Muslims Love American People

Do Muslims-outside the US-hate American people? the answer is no. do the muslims hate the US government? Yes.

Are confused with this statement? if you do, let me explain:

The west and particularly the Americans are nice people; they are educated and therefore civilized, well-behaved, and broad-minded (well, majority of them).

many muslims who went abroad to several western countries were so impressive with the way of life of the westerners. many muslims intellectuals who went there also admire the westerners. syed muhammad abduh, for example, the twentieth century islamic reformer and thinker, famously said that “the west is much more “islamic” than the Muslim”. it means, the west way of life and thinking are more closer than what the muslims are.

abduh elaborate: the west is more helping people, the city and towns are cleaner, the education is higher, the discipline is more followed, the hard-work is more known. all compared to the muslims people in muslims countries.

so, guys who read my brief comments on anti-americanism should not misunderstand what i mean; and should be able to separate between anti-americanism (which means anti-america’s foreign policy) and anti-american people.

and please remember, when im saying the muslims, it stand for the majority of muslims. not the fanatics. the fanatics either in muslim or in the west (christian) are certainly not the creatures to be counted for.
