Ten Things to Know About Terrorism

Ten Things You Can Do to Prevent War

Ten Things You Should Know about U.S. Policy in the Middle East

Break the Cycle : a Short Film — Please take a moment to watch a short but very powerful new animated film that advocates for justice, not blind revenge, in response to the 9-11 attacks

The U.S. Commission on Civil Rights (UCCR) has established a hotline for reports of hate crimes against Arab American, Muslim and South Asian American victims of violent incidents following the hijacking attacks on September 11.

The hotline number is 800-552-6843

Beyond Madness: Obama's War
For the past two years Petraeus has relentlessly attacked Taliban forces in northwest Pakistan. But this policy has significantly strengthened Al Qaeda, the Taliban and local extremist forces instead of weakening them. A jaw-dropping development on August 16 revealed just how badly Petraeus has mishandled his two-year stewardship of U.S. military policy toward Pakistan, as the Wall Street Journal reported. Foreign Policy reports that total suicide attacks worldwide have risen sixfold since 2004, and that “over 90 percent of suicide attacks worldwide are now anti-American. The vast majority of suicide terrorists hail from the local region threatened by foreign troops."

U.S. Strikes Strain Relations With Pakistan
The U.S. has launched a series of air strikes in Pakistan, aimed pressuring militants suspected of running anti-U.S. raids into Afghanistan. But this past week, the Pakistani government lodged a formal complaint and demanded a halt to the strikes. Journalist Ahmed Rashid in Lahore, Pakistan, tells host Liane Hansen how the U.S. could respond.

US To Sell F-16 Fighters To Pakistan

Pakistan Protests over U.S. Sting
Pakistan has protested to the United States over what it says was an FBI sting operation involving a fake plot to kill Pakistan's UN envoy. Islamabad called the operation bizarre and mind-boggling. A spokesman said it had endangered the life of Munir Akram, Pakistan's permanent envoy to the United Nations.

Averting a Hundred Hiroshimas
Has the prospect of a holocaust prompted the rulers of the region to take any preventive measures? No, none. India and Pakistan, into their seventh year as nuclear-weapon states, in fact, seem determined to hurtle downhill together on this path of self-destruction. The prospect appeared imminent in frightening flashes just over two years ago. About a million Indian and Pakistani soldiers faced each other in an eyeball-to-eyeball confrontation all along the India-Pakistan border for months in the sub-continental summer of 2002. Behind the soldiers on either side were nuclear weapons in ready deployment, missiles on hair-trigger alert.

India Mulls 'Pre-Emptive' Pakistan Strike, Cites U.S. Iraq War Precedent

War Will Create More Baby Bin Ladens
I am a Pakistani, a former officer of my country's air force and intelligence services, a close companion of Osama bin Laden in the early days of the Afghan resistance when we fought together against the "evil" Soviets. I am a grandfather and a devout, uncompromising, long-bearded Muslim. In short, I am what many of you in the United States would today refer to as a "terrorist." But I and my long-bearded brothers are no more the terrorists than your president and his military advisors.

Pakistan's Army Gets New Nuclear-Capable Missile
Pakistan said its army took delivery of a new medium-range nuclear-capable ballistic missile on Thursday as part of a minimum but credible deterrence policy against what it called belligerence in the region.

Out of Pakistan
In the past few weeks, American units deployed in the southeastern border provinces have been engaged in the heaviest fighting in nearly a year, and attempted ambushes of patrols and rocket attacks on bases have steadily increased.

After Iraq, US May
Talking to reporters here on Sunday, Dr Hasan said there was a possibility of the US demanding Pakistan to denuclearise, deweaponise its missiles, secularise its system of education and drastically improve the law and order situation soon after the dust settled down on the Iraqi adventure.

Pakistan Denies US Military Claim of Right to Enter
