  • UNITED NATIONS: US drone strikes against suspected terrorists in Afghanistan and Pakistan could be breaking international laws against summary executions, the UN’s top investigator of such crimes said Tuesday. ‘The problem with the United States is that it is making an increased use of drones/Predators (which are) particularly prominently used now in relation to Pakistan and Afghanistan,’ UN Special Rapporteur on Extrajudicial Executions Philip Alston told a press conference. Philip Alston said the US needs to be more up front, ‘otherwise you have the really problematic bottom line that the CIA is running a program that is killing significant numbers of people and there is absolutely no accountability.’
  • 40 Million Kurds want their own Country. See our other Kurdistan stories here and here.

    What is Mine is Mine; What is Yours is Negotiable KurdishMedia.com -By Dr. Rashid Karadaghi

  • The Kurds have had the misfortune of being ruled over for too long by the twisted mentality which the late Howard K. Smith was talking about. One of the most flagrant and serious practical applications of this mentality was carried out by Saddam Hussein in Iraqi-occupied Kurdistan. To change the demography of Kurdistan, Saddam expelled hundreds of thousands of Kurds from their ancestral homes in the majority-Kurdish Karkuk province and other Kurdish areas while bringing in an equal or larger number of Ba’thists and other Arabs from southern and central Iraq and settling them in their place in order to Arabize these areas. To the tyrant, Kurdish land was, of course, “negotiable.” To his succeeding little tyrants, Kurdish land is still “negotiable” today and will remain so forever.
