U.S. Breeding Terrorism
What the U.S. sermonise about terrorism is utterly opposite from what it practices is vindicated in its approach to the West Asia policy.  While the U.S. has blamed Hamas for launching rockets on Israel, it seemed to approve of the disproportionate retaliation by the Israeli war machine, which killed scores of innocent Palestinians in Gaza. The hypocrisy of the U.S. is exposed when it had remained tightlipped, when Gaza was turned as a big-cage by the Israeli army which blockaded food ... More

US's Olive Branch
At the Summit of American nations held at Trinidad recently, the U.S. President Barack Obama shook hands with his Venezuelan counterpart Hugo Chavez, an ardent critic of the United States.  Mr. Obama has also promised to soothe the decades-old of hostile relations with Cuba and promised to ‘listen and learn’ from the leaders of Latin American countries to start a new chapter in the U.S’s approach in its own backyard.  Perhaps, it was the writing on the wall owing...
