Directing you to the truth with regard to Iraq; and the strongest position of Moqtada al-Sadr by reason of the Mahdi Army

Followers of anti-American cleric Moqtada al-Sadr took to the streets in Iraq on Friday

"More than a thousand Sadr supporters demonstrated in Iraq's southern city of Basra on Friday, while in the holy city of Kerbala, hundreds more took to the streets to push for the speedy formation of a government.

In Baghdad's Sadr City -- the Shi'ite cleric's stronghold in the capital -- hundreds rallied after Friday prayers in support of their leader. All the rallies were peaceful and orderly.

"The leader, Moqtada al-Sadr, made his decision for us," Hassan Abdul-Hussain, a 36-year-old government employee, told Reuters. "We obey it fully and without controversy because we all know he looks out for Iraq and Iraqis."

At the rally in Baghdad, support for Sadr was unflinching, "We support decisions made by Moqtada al-Sadr," said Kadhim Hamdan, 28, while holding up a banner and shouting words of support. "Even if he asks us to go to hell, we will go."

Iraqis on edge as rocket attacks intensify

"Firing positions seem to be encroaching on the Green Zone from both Sunni and Shi'ite areas, triggering concerns about the ability of the Iraqi army to stamp out insurgents now that U.S. combat operations have formally ended in the country.

"They have changed their tactics and started launching attacks from a very close range to be sure that there is no time to warn people inside the Green Zone," a source in the Iraqi defence ministry told Reuters on condition of anonymity"

In Fallujah, the Long and Bitter Aftertaste of War

"In nearly every American war, places such as Gettysburg and Normandy entered the lexicon because they were turning points, locations from which historians could draw a line to the conflicts' outcomes. Other places such as Antietam, Okinawa and Mutla Ridge earned their infamy because they were areas of brutal fighting and unprecedented carnage.

When historians assess the Iraq war from the far side of time, the city that will fall into the latter category will be Fallujah.

The name itself became a symbol. Just as Abu Ghraib came to signify vicious cruelty, Fallujah, a city few had heard of before the war, personified the insurgency as U.S. troops fought Sunni guerrillas, making the place a byword for war as the most brutal of blood sports.

After four hours of the chief's hospitality, warmth and outright assistance, Bobby Ghosh asked him a question he had asked many Iraqis in other parts of the country. "It's not a perfect comparison," Bobby began, "but America fought a bitter war against Germany and Japan, who are now two close friends. Can you see a day when Fallujis can call the Americans friends?"

The chief barely hesitated before he replied, "No." There has been too much violence, he explained, too many dead for Fallujis to ever trust the Americans."

Leading you to the truth of the failures in Afghanistan which will continue to grow

Governor among 15 killed in Afghan mosque blast

"A massive bomb blast at a mosque in northern Afghanistan killed 15 people Friday, including a provincial governor who had survived a series of assassination attempts, officials said.

More than 20 people were wounded in the explosion during Friday prayers at the Shirkat mosque in Takhar province, said Gen. Shah Jahan Noori, the provincial police chief.

The governor of neighboring Kunduz province, Mohammad Omar, was killed in the blast, Noori said."

"The slain official was Mohammed Omar, the governor of Kunduz"

"The Kunduz governor was a prominent commander during Afghanistan’s civil war from 1992-1996 and a member of the conservative United Islamic Party headed by Abdul Rasul Sayyaf, who is now a leading conservative figure in the Afghan Parliament. After President Hamid Karzai came to power, Mr. Omar served briefly as governor of Baghlan Province and was then transferred to Kunduz where he had served for the past seven years.

A year ago, Mr. Omar survived another assassination attempt when a roadside bomb exploded as he traveled between Kunduz and Takhar. Mr. Omar had long predicted that he would be assassinated and openly accused the Pakistani Intelligence Service of being involved in the insurgency and said that they would target him"

British soldier killed by explosion in Helmand province

"Death toll of UK troops in Afghanistan rises to 340 as body of Gurkha Suraj Gurung is flown back to Britain

A soldier from 2nd Battalion, the Duke of Lancaster's Regiment was killed today in an explosion in the Nahr-e Saraj district of Helmand province, southern Afghanistan. He was attached to 1st Battalion, the Royal Gurkha Rifles. The body of Gurkha Suraj Gurung, 22, recently married, and killed by a suicide bomber in Nahr-e Saraj on Saturday, was flown to Britain today. The army described him as "one of the very best of his generation and almost certainly destined for promotion". Three hundred and forty UK troops have died since military operations in Afghanistan began in 2001."

Expanding Control, Taliban Refresh Stamp on Afghan Justice

"Across the regions where the Taliban have expanded their control, the insurgents are gradually reinstituting much of the same brand of justice they were notorious for when they ruled Afghanistan — swift, brutal and intimidating enough to ensure obedience and order — with the help in a few places of substantial prisons.

The Taliban have used their jails to appeal to Afghans’ thirst for justice in a country where the government’s judicial system is frequently slow and corrupt. But they have also used the prisons to dissuade Afghans like Attiqullah from helping NATO forces and the government win over the population by offering them services, a critical part of the counterinsurgency strategy aimed at defeating the Taliban."

Afghans Linked to the Taliban Guard U.S. Bases

"Afghan private security forces with ties to the Taliban, criminal networks and Iranian intelligence have been hired to guard American military bases in Afghanistan, exposing United States soldiers to surprise attack and confounding the fight against insurgents, according to a Senate investigation.

The Pentagon’s oversight of the Afghan guards is virtually nonexistent, allowing local security deals among American military commanders, Western contracting companies and Afghan warlords who are closely connected to the violent insurgency, according to the report by investigators on the staff of the Senate Armed Services Committee.

The Senate committee said it received intelligence from the Defense Intelligence Agency about Afghans working for EOD, and that the reporting found that some of them “have been involved in activities at odds with U.S. interests in the region.”

The latest disclosures follow a series of reports, including articles in The New York Times and testimony before a House committee, describing bribes paid by contractors to the Taliban and other warlords to make sure supply convoys for the American military were provided safe passage.

The Senate report goes further, spelling out the close relations between some contractors and the forces arrayed against the Kabul government and the Americans, and saying that the proliferation of contractors in the country is sometimes fueling the very insurgency that the military is there to combat. It names a few of the contracting companies, and uses one base as a case study, but calls the problems it identified pervasive."

Directing you to the real truth of the economy and how the bailouts will ultimately fail and the exact role China would play

U.S. Economy Lost 95,000 Jobs in September

"The U.S. economy continued to lose jobs last month as small gains in the private sector failed to offset big cuts in government workers, pointing to a still sluggish recovery.

Private-sector employers added only 64,000 jobs in September, the Labor Department said Friday. Overall, nonfarm payrolls fell by 95,000 as temporary census workers were let go and state and local governments also cut employment.

The U.S. labor market remains in the doldrums 15 months after the recession ended.

The unemployment rate, which is calculated with a separate household survey, remained unchanged at a lofty 9.6%"

IMF warns of real threat to economy
Ongoing currency crises between the US and China cannot end well

"The IMF chief has said that a "real threat" exists due to a currency dispute between the world's largest economies which are meeting in Washington.

Finance ministers and central bankers from 187 countries will convene for an annual meeting of the International Monetary Fund on Friday, amid warnings that "beggar-thy-neighbour" policies could wreck the global recovery.

"The consensus to work together has a bit decreased, and one sign of this is the different declaration by different countries that they may try to manipulate their currencies and this kind of currency never ends well," Dominique Strauss-Kahn, managing director of the IMF

China has rebuffed pressure to lift the value of the yuan, fearing it would put Chinese businesses at risk.

Meanwhile, European officials said that a rapidly rising euro, victimised by an undervalued US dollar and Chinese yuan, could threaten eurozone recovery and vowed to press both Washington and Beijing to take action.

Sharing power

India said that imbalances in the global economy have become "unsustainable" but called on major economies to avoid confrontation to avert a feared currency war.

The IMF said that rich and emerging economies must dramatically change the way they trade with each other or risk throttling the recovery.

In its latest economic outlook, the IMF said growth would slow more than previously expected in 2011, as the US, Europe and Japan continue to struggle and China remains overly dependent on exports"
