Iraq quagmire....

Saddam's execution..

The very popular quote which is being trumpeted in the recent times is that "Iraq was is better shape than before". This makes the writing in the wall still clear..It's really unfortunate that even after some bad toned interviews with a typical American arrogance like "we don't do body counts" from the now ousted Rumsfield on being asked about the casuality count of the iraqis.. Bush-Blair duo still manages to spearhead the campaign that they are towards the goal of spreading democracy in the middle east and the stereo-typed,monotonical slogans like liberating Iraq... and rebuilding iraq.

And the irony of all is that Bush and the puppet regime's court of Justice managed to hang Saddam.. Although it's a fact that Saddam is to be accused of Torturing and killing the Kurds, there would not be this much hue and cry if he would been tried in the unoccupied Iraq and a well oiled Independent Iraqi court of Justice. It makes one feel really uneasy that one who is charged with torturing his own coutrymen is tried by Bush who himself is responsible for killing thousands and thousands of Iraqis for his selfish,jealousy,self-centric,personal Oil greed.

Though Bush managed to announce Saddam's execution well before the US elections.. Republicans had their due in the elections losing clearly in both the senate and the lower house.. poor Saddam being again used by G.Bush,Jr. Now Bush might be having a tough time thinking about the bipartisan approach and dealing with Nancy Pelosi.

Bush may fortunately leave the office by doing some "Stay the Course" stunts and may escape from the "President who lost the Iraq war" tag cleverly by deploying some more troops.. And already Blair preparing for packing the bags from Downing street.. The Iraq war is well poised with all the oil being rightly trapped... Inciting the internal rivalry..Executing people at will..Money for Iraq reconstruction being swindled by already fat corporates..God should save Iraq.. Perhaps, God will never say.. "Go Bush.. Save Iraq" to Bush.Jr.

The report

It's really a long break since i last blogged..Meanwhile the oppurtunity which at one point of time for which I craved is fast loosing it's shine and leaves me clue less. Definitely I did'nt expect this at a great place to work.. infact..

Indian Muslims have been deliberately left out..

A lot of hullo-bullo has been made over the Rajinder sachar committee's request for the Muslim headcount from the armed forces.. People shouted as if that would tarnish the armed forces image and kill it's integrity. The shouting proves that there is something perceptibly wrong.. Although the facts and figures of the Muslim headcount in state and central public services are alarming,the one most shocking one which i read from frontline is that out of one lakh police personnel in tamil Nadu, only 500/600 were muslims!!!! This is too much for our nation in general and TN in particular.. Since the days of the Rath yatra the Indian right wing managed to paint a grave picture on the India's largest minority and grown the animosity in quite some minds.

The sachar committee's findings throws sufficient light on the plight of the Indian Muslim minority and it's recommendations has to be implemented at once to it's truest of the intentions. After all, the key slogan on which the congress(I) rided on it's way to the Delhi throne was "Garibi hatao!" and Garibi definition fits everyone and it's almost is the need of the hour for Muslim upliftment. At the end of the day, everyone dreams of a decent earning,food and a modest shelter and the government should really help who are less previlaged

With all this said, something has to be done to keep the unity in diversity tag which we are very much proud of, and also we need to have the secular fabric more lively with a equal, open and just representation encompassing all sections of the soceity.
