When Barack Obama unveiled his new policy on Pakistan and Afghanistan in March, he gave a warning that Al Qaeda, the Taliban and other jihadist gangs were "killing Pakistan from within." The generals who guard Pakistan's national security had shown only "mixed results" in combating the threat, he said. They would no longer enjoy a "blank cheque" and must show they are fighting in good faith.

The southern part of Mindanao and the Sulu-Sulawesi Seas Littoral area were listed among the terrorist safe havens in the world and the only terrorism hot spot in East Asia and the Pacific based on the US State Department’s Country Reports on Terrorism 2008 released yesterday.

The report defined terrorist safe havens as “ungoverned, under-governed, or ill-governed areas of a country.”

Iran remains the "most active state sponsor of terrorism" in the world, a report by the US state department says.

It says Iran's role in the planning and financing of terror-related activities in the Middle East and Afghanistan threatens efforts to promote peace.

Al-Qaeda remains the biggest danger to the US and the West, the annual report states, noting that terror attacks are rising in Pakistan.

Iran rejected the report, saying the US was guilty of double standards.

Foreign Minister Manouchehr Mottaki said the US had no right to accuse others in light of its actions at Abu Ghraib and Guantanamo Bay.


More Radicalism from Virginia House Candidate Omeish Revealed

The last time the public got a good look at Esam Omeish, he was resigning from a Virginia immigration panel, claiming that the posting of videos showing him praising Palestinians who chose "the jihad way" to liberate their land was part of a smear campaign against him.

Now Omeish is diving into the deep end of smear campaigns, offering himself as a candidate for a partisan legislative seat in Northern Virginia. Omeish is among four Democrats vying to win their party's nomination in District 35 in the Virginia House of Delegates.


Robert Gates: bombing Iran would not stop nuclear threat

U.S. Defense Secretary Robert Gates stated clear opposition to using force in order to stop Iran’s nuclear program, stating that "Even a military attack will only buy us time and send the program deeper and more covert."

Testifying before the Senate Appropriations committee, Mr Gates outlined the central objection to using force to halt Iran's nuclear programme.

All of the country's known nuclear installations, notably the crucial uranium enrichment plant in Natanz, could in principle be destroyed. But the Iranian regime would eventually be able to rebuild them - and it would almost certainly do so without admitting the inspectors from the International Atomic Energy Agency, who presently monitor Iran's most important nuclear plants.
