British Pride – A Dangerous Commodity

Have they STILL not learnt yet?


 


A recent report on the arrival back in the UK of the HMS Cornwall crew states they were in Iraqi waters.


 


The 15 soldiers and marines still seem to believe this, or they are lying. Evidence has already proven they had inadvertently strayed into Iranian territory.


 


What is the difficulty in admitting an honest mistake?


 


The crew should be told the truth and shown the real evidence. They are the ones who suffered because of – yet again – Politics!  All Iran was looking for is the truth.  The blustering efforts of Tony Blair put his men and woman into real danger. A simple admission of the truth is all that was required, saving the crew a multitude of stress and worry.


 


Iran using psychological mind games, according to the report, is also not acceptable. Once the evidence came to light, they also knew it was an honest mistake.


 


Politics?  Ditch them!  The perhaps solutions will be found to many world-wide problems.

It may be vital for many to save the endangered rhinos in India's celebrated parks, but for a section of media persons in Northeast, it seemingly becomes more important to safeguard the forest minister.

Detailed look at the Saudi education system sausage machine

The House of Al Saud is built on land which is criss-crossed with tectonic fault lines which are almost constantly moving. And the al Saud way of handling these fault lines is not to improve the house by making it flexible, open and earthquake proof but to try to pour concrete down the fault line chasms.

Whale Killing - who is Japan trying to kid?

The object of the research is to prove commercial whaling can resume. That is to make it legal to slaughter whales. Japan's whaling is primarily for so they can sell whale-meat. Imagine the carnage if they are successful and whaling is resumed. Thousands of whales slaughtered for the dinner plates in Japan. The scenes in the photo will become commonplace.

Defying militants' diktat, Northeast celebrates India's R-Day

If the mainland India observed the 59th Republic Day with fun fare, the trouble torn northeastern region of the country celebrated the Day with utmost conviction. Comprising eight States, the land locked region had been witnessing a regular ban on the celebration of both the Independence and R-Day of India by the outlawed militant outfits as a mark of their protest against New Delhi for many decades. But amazingly, the public support and participation has been increased in the last few years, where the citizens have made it a habit to defy the diktat of the insurgents and celebrate the Days with great fervour.

ISI spreads a net in Northeast India

India has largely turned a blind eye to militant groups operating in its far-flung Northeast, the growing Islamisation of the region provides more than enough reasons for New Delhi to start paying closer attention to its Northeastern border. Stratfor has been closely monitoring the growing nexus between India’s Northeastern insurgent outfits and militant Islamist groups that regularly traverse India’s extremely porous border with Bangladesh.
