ISLAMABAD: Pakistan’s Supreme Court has listed a graft as well as a criminal case against President Asif Ali Zardari for hearing on November 16 and 17, raising fresh questions about his fate. The two cases are from 1998 and 1999. Are there fresh cases coming next? Asif Ali Zadari, President of Pakistan (known as Mr. 10% as people claim that when his wife was Prime Minister, any big contract with the government, he got 10% of the revenues. The press can not call him Mr. 10% in Pakistan)

Karzai hits back against critics

  • With international pressure mounting on Karzai to take a firm stand against alleged corruption in government, the Afghan president said in the interview that the “the West is not here primarily for the sake of Afghanistan”. “It is here to fight the war on terror. The United States and its allies came to Afghanistan after September 11. Afghanistan was troubled like hell before that too, nobody bothered about us,” he said. “We were being killed by al-Qaeda and the terrorists before September 11th for years, tortured and killed, our villages were destroyed, and we were living a miserable life. “The West didn’t care nor did they ever come. Rather, they were asking us to make up with the Taliban and the terrorists and al-Qaeda.” Thousands of US and Nato troops are still in Afghanistan more than eight years after they invaded the country to topple the Taliban government.
  • [Ed. Note: This is how the U.S. plans to withdraw from Afghanistan. Gordon Brown agrees with President Obama, Afghanistan has six months to stop the 1,000’s of years of corruption. The U.S. has drafted a plan to Stop Corruption and will be making Karazi follow it or lose the funding and backing of the U.S. government. This is a tiger without teeth position]
