The world has had enough :)

The era Error of George W. Bush‘s US presidency is over. Whether you like him or not, he has left behind a steady inventory of some hilariously memorable quotes as the president of United states. Some of these are collected here…

‘The vast majority of our imports come from outside the country.’

‘If we don’t succeed, we run the risk of failure.’

‘I have made good judgments in the past. I have made good judgments in the future.’

‘The future will be better tomorrow.’

‘We’re going to have the best educated American people in the world..’

‘A low voter turnout is an indication of fewer people going to the polls.’

‘I have opinions of my own — strong opinions — but I don’t always agree with them.’

‘We are ready for any unforeseen event that may or may not occur.’

‘For NASA, space is still a high priority.’

‘Quite frankly, teachers are the only profession that teach our children.’

‘It isn’t pollution that’s harming the environment. It’s the impurities in our air and water that are doing it.’

“Amigo! Amigo!” –George W. Bush, calling out to Italian Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi in Spanish at the G-8 Summit, Rusutsu, Japan, July 10, 2008

‘I remember meeting a mother of a child who was abducted by the North Koreans right here in the Oval Office.’

‘We’ve got a lot of relations with countries in our neighborhood.’

‘And so, General, I want to thank you for your service. And I appreciate the fact that you really snatched defeat out of the jaws of those who are trying to defeat us in Iraq.’ –George W. Bush, to Army Gen. Ray Odierno, Washington, D.C., March 3, 2008

‘In terms of the economy, look, I inherited a recession, I am ending on a recession.’ –George W. Bush, Washington, D.C., Jan. 12, 2009

‘It will take time to restore chaos’

Don’t miss this hilarious mock up discussion between Bush & Condoleeza Rice… in this video 😀

Pakistan might just prefer to attack India?

What do terror strikes in Mumbai, New York, Delhi, London, Jaipur, Paris, Russia, Afghanistan, Nepal & Iraq have in common? “Pakistan” and its links. And yet, lack of evidence and proof are buzz words to buy time. Even though Pakistan is under pressure from India, USA & Israel to rage an urgent war on terrorist outfits breeding in their country, is this really the best option they have?

zardariCome to think of it, one cannot realistically expect Pakistan’s Civilian  government to rage this war on terror for a number of reasons. They are newly elected, have little control over their own Army – which is threatens a coup , already under criticism & struggling on their offensive on western front with Al Qaeda factions – they once help establish, a beleaguered economy with immense curruption pleading a bail-out from IMF , confused sentiments on deciding friends & foe and a now being cornered to capture & extradite other terrorist factions on their eastern front.

Even if the terrorists from the “India’s Most wanted” list were to be handed over, it will expose their government’sManmohan Singh depth of support and seal their fate as a “Terrorist state” which is what really explains Pakistan’s refusal to hand them over. Afterall, what is the Pakistan minister trying to defend when he says they are “…Ready for a war on India” ? … the terror camps in PoK? With a sword hanging on their heads, perhaps a war with India is their only remaining option. This can potentially get them public sentiment on soveriegn grounds, unification with mercenaries who will actively fight against India, perhaps even cause historic damage with their nuclear misadventures and most importantly divert the whole agenda of abetting terrorism.

While this may be just a point of view, its only fair to set expectations from Pakistan to avoid procastination, heart burn and prepare for a united war against terrorism and those abetting terror. Its for global leaders to stop talking and unite in fighting this war on ground. This is not the bilateral issue of Kashmere anymore, its not a war against a nation, its a multilateral issue of global terror and this time the biggest democracies have spoken their sentiments loud enough.

A war for the future of Peace? Perhaps.

Obama’s win is a bigger indication of “Change”

When Senator Obama created history in being nominated and winning the US Presidential election by a landslide margin, it indicated a much larger “Change”. Not very long ago, blacks in America were treated with extreme prejudice, were desisted to cast their vote and it was unthinkable for a colored man to even contest for the most powerful position in the world. Obama’s election reflects this drastic “Change of mindsets” of the US citizens at large, on how they now perceive the black community, the foreign migrants, the young leaders and the civilian population.

The Americans are such a dynamic & resilient community that they have together emerged in unprecedented majority to support Obama in anticipation of drastic changes that the nation needs at this time of crisis. The sheer election of this candidate is likely to infuse confidence in the American public and create lessons in history for generations to come. Globally, while the nations now wait to see how Obama takes his next steps to curb recession, spread peace and encourage free trade. McCain supporters will perhaps have no other choice but to overcome their inhibitions in interest of the nation to support their new president. With this choice, USA has now fully matured to command respect of being the most developed nation and perhaps a lesson for many developing countries on how to overcome internal cast-ism & discrimination in the race to survive and flourish. CHANGE, we surely need!
