Address the Baloch grievances

When a politician who is treasured in a province is humiliated by the federation, what sort of reaction should be expected from his followers? Ironically, the same federation presented a guard of honour to General Musharraf who abrogated its constitution and fled the scene subsequently

Balochistan has been afflicted with a variable level of insurgency

What can save the euro? -Joseph E Stiglitz

Before the crisis, Spain had budget surpluses and low debt, but now has large deficits and high debt [GALLO/GETTY]

Growth is needed in order to save the euro, not sermons and homilies, says Nobel Prize-winning economist.

New York, New York – Just when it seemed that things couldn’t get worse, it appears that they have. Even some of the ostensibly “responsible” members of the eurozone are facing higher interest rates. Economists on both sides of the Atlantic are now discussing not just whether the euro will survive, but how to ensure that its demise causes the least turmoil possible.

It is increasingly evident that Europe’s political leaders, for all their commitment to the euro’s survival, do not have a good grasp of what is required to make the single currency work. The prevailing view when the euro was established was that all that was required was fiscal discipline – no country’s fiscal deficit or public debt, relative to GDP, should be too large.

But Ireland and Spain had budget surpluses and low debt before the crisis, which quickly turned into large deficits and high debt. So now, European leaders say that it is the current-account deficits of the eurozone’s member countries that must be kept in check.

In that case, it seems curious that, as the crisis continues, the safe haven for global investors is the United States, which has had an enormous current-account deficit for years. So, how will the European Union distinguish between “good” current-account deficits – a government creates a favourable business climate, generating inflows of foreign direct investment – and “bad” current-account deficits? Preventing bad current-account deficits would require far greater intervention in the private sector than the neoliberal and single-market doctrines that were fashionable at the euro’ s founding would imply.

Sunni secessionist fears as US troops leave-Abeer Mohammed

Posted by admin On December - 8 - 2011 Comments Off on Sunni secessionist fears as US troops leave-Abeer Mohammed

BAGHDAD – Fears of sectarian divisions in Iraq are rising as American troops prepare to leave the country at the end of this year, and some Sunni Arab areas demand increased autonomy from the Shi’ite-led government in Baghdad.

The western provinces of Salahuddin, where former leader Saddam Hussein’s home town is located, and Anbar, once a stronghold for al-Qaeda fighters, both submitted a request for more autonomy to the cabinet in November.

The move was interpreted as a response to government policies perceived locally as anti-Sunni.

In recent months, the authorities have arrested more than 600 Sunni Arabs accused of serving

Terrorists can also bestow favors -M K Bhadrakumar

Posted by admin On December - 8 - 2011 Comments Off on Terrorists can also bestow favors -M K Bhadrakumar

The twin terrorist strikes on Tuesday on Shi’ite worshipers in the Afghan capital Kabul and the northern city of Mazar-i-Shairf, killing 58 people, are an extraordinary event. Even in the darkest days of violence during the past decade, Afghanistan never descended to sectarian violence.

The easy thing to do is to blame the Taliban. But Taliban spokesman Zabiullah Mujahid quickly condemned the “wild and inhuman attack by our enemies, who are trying to blame us and are trying to divide Afghans by making such attacks on Muslims”. The Taliban blamed the “invading army” for the attacks, referring to the foreign troops in the country.

The ghastly act needs to be “deconstructed” to get to somewhere
