Three passions have governed my life:
The longings for love, the search for knowledge,
And unbearable pity for the suffering of [humankind].

Love brings ecstasy and relieves loneliness.
In the union of love I have seen
In a mystic miniature the prefiguring vision
Of the heavens that saints and poets have imagined.

With equal passion I have sought knowledge.
I have wished to understand the hearts of [people].
I have wished to know why the stars shine.

Love and knowledge led upwards to the heavens,
But always pity brought me back to earth;
Cries of pain reverberated in my heart
Of children in famine, of victims tortured
And of old people left helpless.
I long to alleviate the evil, but I cannot,
And I too suffer.

This has been my life; I found it worth living. –  Bertrand Russell

Knowledge……

Knowledge is the food of the soul. – Plato

There is only one good, knowledge, and one evil, ignorance. – Socrates

Knowledge will forever govern ignorance; and a people who mean to be their own governors must arm themselves with the power which knowledge gives. – James Madison

Knowledge is, indeed, that which, next to virtue, truly and essentially raises one man above another. – Joseph Addison

He who knows not and knows not he knows not, he is a fool–shun him; He who knows not and knows he knows not, he is simple–teach him; He who knows and knows not he knows, he is asleep–wake him; He who knows and knows he knows, he is wise–follow him! – Lady Burton

“If you have knowledge, let others light their candles in it.” – Margaret Fuller

“To educate a man is to unfit him to be a slave.” – Frederick Douglass

“Shake off all the fears of servile prejudices, under which weak minds are servilely crouched. Fix reason firmly in her seat, and call on her tribunal for every fact, every opinion.

“We thought, because we had power, we had wisdom.” – Stephen Vincent Benet

“The man who does not do his own thinking is a slave, and is a traitor to himself and his fellow men.” – Robert G. Ingersoll

“It is the responsibility of intellectuals to speak the truth and expose lies.”  –  Noam Chomsky

“Believe those who are seeking the truth; doubt those who find it.”  –  Andre Gide

“Truth is not only violated by falsehood; it may be equally outraged by silence.”  –  Henri Frederic Amiel

“Like all dreamers I confuse disenchantment with truth.”  –  Jean-Paul Sartre

As honesty and real integrity characterize our lives, there will be no need to manipulate others.”  –  Chuck Swindoll

An elder Cherokee Native American was teaching his grandchildren about life. He said to them, “A fight is going on inside me…It is a terrible fight, and it is between two wolves. One wolf represents fear, anger, envy, sorrow, regret, greed, arrogance, self-pity, guilt, resentment, inferiority, lies, pride and superiority. The other wolf stands for joy, peace, love, hope, sharing, serenity, humility, kindness, benevolence, friendship, empathy, generosity, truth, compassion, and faith. This same fight is going on inside of you and every other person too.” They thought about it for a minute and then one child asked his grandfather, “Which wolf will win?” The old Cherokee simply replied… “The one I feed.”

War…..

“Liberty and democracy become unholy when their hands are dyed red with innocent blood.” – Gandhi

Propaganda……

“It’s not a matter of what is true that counts but a matter of what is perceived to be true.” – Henry Kissinger

“If you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it, people will eventually come to believe it. The lie can be maintained only for such time as the State can shield the people from the political, economic and/or military consequences of the lie. It thus becomes vitally important for the State to use all of its powers to repress dissent, for the truth is the mortal enemy of the lie, and thus by extension, the truth is the greatest enemy of the State.” – Joseph Goebbels

“Political language is designed to make lies sound truthful and murder respectable, and to give the appearance of solidity to pure wind.” –  George Orwell

“In the size of the lie there is always contained a certain factor of credibility, since the great masses of the people…will more easily fall victim to a great lie than to a small one.” – Adolf Hitler

    Pakistan is Facing a Hard Time of Life
    Analyzed by
    Dr.Masood Tariq
    As the Pakistan became Pendulum between U.S.A and China along with many Regional and Supporting Players. Therefore, neither the U.S.A is able to isolate the Pakistan like Iraq and not be able to capture like Afghanistan. Because, this type of adventure may initiate the 3rd World War. However due to the Game of Domination between International Players, During this Decade, either the Pakistan will be The Asian Tiger with Strong Institutions and Political Parties (Most probably) or a Failure State with Strong Personalities and War Lords. (Remote chance)
    Geographically Pakistan has Strategic Importance for International Players U.S.A, Russia and China, including Regional Players India, Iran and Saudi Arabia, along with many Supporting Players. Therefore, Pakistan is a Pivot for War of Domination between International, Regional and Supporting Players and now day by day Pakistani Politics will Start to Dominate the National and International Issues along with the past era Regional, Ethnic, Sectarian, Local and Personal Interests and Emotions because, most of the Major International, Regional and Supporting Players will enhance the Proxy Facilitation and Interference in Politics and Governance. Therefore, Trends of Pakistani Politics will turn into Beyond the Imagination and Understanding of Layman.
    As the Russia was already attempting to reach The Hot Water but now China is also willing for it by 2030 and from 2020 China will start the Advancement towards The Hot Water and till 2020 China will Work to Choose and Secure the Corridors. However, owing to Chinese Role in Pakistan since 60’s, People of Pakistan trust the China as a Faithful Friend. Consequently; People of Pakistan are not ready to support any action against Chinese Interest, as they did Against Russia for Decades. Furthermore, People of Pakistan are also fading up by the Arrogant, Autocratic, Dictatorial, Dogmatic and Tyrannical Rulers as well as Crooked, Corrupt, Dishonest, Dummy, Puppet and Pseudo Politicians, along with their Masters, Patrons and Facilitators. Therefore, it is a Hard Time for PAK-US Establishment and Pakistani Politicians to revise their Policy, to make it according to the Will and Wish of Pakistani People.
    Pakistan is facing a Hard Time of Life due to Communication Corridor for Russia and China. Therefore, if China is ready to reach The Hot Water in near future then Pakistan will be a Battle Ground instead of Communication Corridor. Otherwise, it is not suitable for U.S.A to break or even reduce the Strategic Relationship with Pakistan because without Geographical support of Pakistan, U.S.A will lose the Control over Afghanistan and Russia will again advance towards The Hot Water. Yet any Plan of U.S.A to convert Pakistan into a Battle Ground will Force or Facilitate the Pakistan to change the camp. Otherwise, Pakistan will prefer to maintain the Strategic Relationship with U.S.A.
    However, due to Geo-Political importance of Pakistan in War of Regional Domination and Psychosomatic Aptitude of Pakistani People, Any Political Proxy Facilitate at National and International stage by the U.S Opposing Players; Especially China or Russia, will burst the Situation. Because, due to Domination and Control of Opportunists, Hypocrites and Power as well as Money Hunger Persons in Governance and Politics, Public is already under threat of Administrative Victimization and Judicial Injustice along with Economical Disaster and Social Polarization.
    Therefore, Institutionally Collapsed and Economically Distorted Pakistan along with, Socially Polarized, Administratively Victimized and Politically Deprived People of Pakistan due to Terrorism, Fascism and Nepotism, As a result of Inefficiency, Misconduct and Corruptive Practices of Dogmatic and Tyrannical Rulers as well as Puppet and Pseudo Politicians in Conjunction with their Masters, Patrons and Facilitators, May Turn Out to be a Major Political and Moral Hazard for U.S.A at National and International Level. Defiantly, it will be Consequential to the War of Regional Domination, along with Control over Afghanistan.
    Although, for Game of Domination between International Players, the suitable option is, the Will and Wish of “People of Pakistan” represented by the Political Leadership. Furthermore, the Sovereignty, Integrity and National Interests of Pakistan are An Internal Subject, related to the Qualities of Nation and Leadership. But, due to Un-organized and Non-systemized Political Parties, since from Liaquat Ali Khan era to Present Government, Dictatorial and Puppet Rulers were Sweet Choice for U.S.A, to secure the interests in Pakistan and to keep Russia away from The Hot Water.
    However, now People of Pakistan are fading up. They are furious and frustrated about the Dictatorial Rulers and Puppet Leaders due to negligence of Public Affairs, Interests and Problems. Therefore in future, Atmosphere and Circumstances will not support the Dictatorial Rulers and Puppet Politicians, Absolutely. Because, in future era Game of Domination between U.S.A, Russia and China will Enhance. Therefore, Pakistani Politics will dominate the National and International Issues; it will facilitate the “People of Pakistan” and “Major National Political Players” to make Pakistan an Asian Tiger through well-built State Institutions along with Properly Organized and Systemized Political Parties. Nevertheless, None- democratic and Un-constitutional Actions by the Establishment or None-Political and Un-ethical Activities by the Politicians, will Abrupt the Situation and Lead the Country towards a Failure and Malfunctioning State by way of Strong Personalities and War Lords.
    Because, in past era due to Social Polarization, Administrative Victimization and Economical Disintegration, Lower and Middle Class Peaceful, Law-abiding and Honest People of Pakistan have suffered a lot. But now they are going to be Immune and Reactive. It is Visible from their Attitude of Ignorance and Not-willingly participating in Political and Governance Activities.
    Whereas, the Dictatorial Rulers, Elite Class Feudal Lords, Opportunist and Hypocrite Politicians along with their companions were the Advantageous Lot by means of Dividing and Disappointing the Nation through Cultivating and Harvesting the Regional, Ethnic, Sectarian and Locality Oriented Emotions and Interests. But now they are going to be Fragile and Filthy. It is Noticeable from their Lack of Attention in Public Politics and Governance Activities, due to Public Embarrassment and Feeling of Ashamed by their Political and Governance Character.
    In Democratic Political System, Government cannot be formed without Election Victory by Public Support through Political Party. However, in Pakistan, Political Parties were never Organized and Systemized by the Party Owners according to the Political Ethics and Manners, along with Party Manifesto. Therefore, most of Political Parties work like Public Ltd. Companies and have their own Sole Agents, Distributors and Salesman’s. Because of that most of the Politicians have their Own Paid Workers and Working Partners. They behave with the Political Workers like Customers and they treat the General Public like Slaves. Therefore, Public is Disappointed, Dissatisfied, Disillusioned from Politicians and Political Parties. Whereas, Political Leaders are Dependent on Establishment for Leadership and Governance, like the Owners of Public Ltd. Companies always remain Dependent on Government Departments.
    Therefore, Political Parties of Pakistan needs to be Organized Appropriately by Considering the Necessity of Cadres at Union Council, Tehsil, District, Province and National level. These “Cadres” should include Persons:
    (a) Those possess Intellectual Wisdom to Prepare Proper Plans and Programs. (Leaders or Initiators)
    (b) Those have Organizational Skill to Organize and Systematize the Party. (Workers or Motivators)
    (c) Those are Socially Well Respected among the Masses and Capable to Impress the Public. (Supporters or Actors)
    For the reason that, Grooming of Local, Provincial and National Leadership is not possible without Well Organized and Systemized Political Parties, as per Party Manifesto and according to the Political Ethics and Manners. Otherwise, Un-groomed Politicians and Un-organized and None-systemized Political Parties will have to dependent on Establishment for Purpose of Leadership and Governance. Moreover, Dictatorial Rulers and Puppet Politicians will remain be the choice for International, Regional and Supporting Players.

    Drawing Blood
    By : Yasmeen Ali

    Pakistanis want facts. There is shock at the attack of 1/5. Questions are being raised at the ease with which US was able to attack Pakistan, allegedly, without the knowledge of Pakistan Government. Many media people and organizations are asking retribution. They want heads to roll. Demand for someone to resign is being raised. Someone must accept responsibility for the shocking failure. The Beast reported that resignation by the ISI Honcho Lt. General Pasha is a matter of time.

    The issue as I see it is not this, one, particular attack. The question is the very policy of allowing drone attacks, thereby accepting another nation to attack within our borders. Once this policy is in place, it becomes difficult to object to one particular attack, may it be by means other than the drone. The question is more broad based than the one posed by the demand of resignation. The question revolves around the international acceptability of a policy that will be immediately rejected by every country of the civilized world.

    USA, today blaming Pakistan for failed intelligence, herself failed to detect the attack on 9/11. On September 11th, there were fighters in the air less than five minutes away from the Twin Towers when the first was hit, 25 minutes after Flight 11 was believed to be hijacked. There were a number of air stations with combat-ready fighters within ten minutes’ flying time from the New York City and Washington targets. There were well-established automatic procedures for intercepting aircraft that were either off course or had lost communication.

    Transponders are receiver/transmitter devices installed on planes for the purpose of tracking their location. Sometimes called “secondary radar,” transponders tell Air Traffic Control the latitude, longitude, altitude, and speed of the aircraft as well as the plane’s identification, airline and flight number. Compare transponders with conventional, or “primary radar,” which detects distant objects and determines their position, velocity, and other characteristics by analysis of very high frequency radio waves reflected from the surface of the aircraft. Conventional radar shows the latitude and longitude of the aircraft, but, unlike transponders, will not reveal the airline, flight number, nor altitude of the aircraft. For years, air traffic controllers have relied on conventional radar, and it still works. YET, USA failed in detecting the oncoming attackers ?

    Likewise, in Mumbai attack, the terrorists, entered western port city of Mumbai by boat. Not only did they breech the security, the police initially passed it off as a “gang war”. To add to intelligence failure, India displayed miserable incompetence, when the Russian IL 76 military transport aircraft that was to ferry the 200 commandos was stationed at Chandigarh, 152 miles north of Delhi, and by the time it arrived in the capital it was already nearing 2am.

    The purpose of the narration is, clamoring for resignations at this point in time, for 1/5 is a knee jerk reaction. The facts need to be known and policy devised to counter the lapse for future. If the very policy of allowing a foreign nation to attack within the borders of Pakistan is condoned by the Government in Pakistan and the world in general, one or more resignation, will not make any difference. Whether or not anyone should resign, must wait till full facts are disclosed.

    In discussing the Middle East, we might benefit from Anthony Wile’s discussion on The Daily Bell concerning how pricing oil in dollars and thus supporting the dollar as the world’s reserve currency might have as much to do with America’s many invasions of the region as well as our support of corrupt authoritarian regimes at Mid-East Conflict Not Exactly About Oil at

    http://www.thedailybell.com/1851/Anthony-Wile-Mid-East-Conflict-Not-Exactly-About-Oil.html
    Also this article on the dangers to the region of copying the failing American regulatory democracy model titled A Middle East Warning: American-Style Democracy Isn’t the Answer is also a worthwhile read as he recommends the Swiss model of government as an alternative at

  10. So need to start these Re-entry Centers (need e mail for Richard Gale and Gary Null) for our Wounded Warriors; i.e., when they are arrested after serving in this horrible war provide the needed Vouchers for Veterans alternative to the broken VA.

    Please write about the North Shore Long Island Jewish Health System Veterans Program started by former NY Court of Appeals CHief Judge Sol Wachtler, Randy Howard, Lt. Colonel USA Retired, District Attorneys, etc. Foundational program for this paradigm.
