The Joint Operating Environment report paints a bleak picture of what can happen on occasions when there is serious economic upheaval. "One should not forget that the Great Depression spawned a number of totalitarian regimes that sought economic prosperity for their nations by ruthless conquest," it points out.

Indian Probe Blames Mosque Attack on Hindu Leaders

NEW DELHI (AP) -- An Indian government investigation released Tuesday into the 1992 demolition of a mosque by a raging mob reportedly accused top Hindu nationalist politicians of complicity in the attack that sparked nationwide ethnic riots, leaving 2,000 people dead.
The scathing report, handed to parliament 17 years after the attack, exposed the painful religious divide plaguing a nation that prides itself as a model of a multiethnic, secular democracy.

Take me down little Susie, take me down
I know you think you're the queen of the underground
And you can send me dead flowers every morning
Send me dead flowers by the mail
Send me dead flowers to my wedding
And I won't forget to put roses on your grave ...
- The Rolling Stones
To: George W. Bush
From: Your biggest fan
Re: Your imminent unemployment
Greetings, Mr. Bush.
I was sorry to hear about the passing of your cat, India. Eighteen years is a long time for a cat - my mother has one that's 20 and still going strong, if you can believe it - and I'm sure India had a comfortable, caring life with your family.
The CIA-ISI axis: India should have no illusions of US support
By C. Uday Bhaskar: India is maintaining politico-diplomatic pressure on Pakistan to comply with its international obligations apropos the Mumbai terror attack of Nov 26. Home Minister P. Chidambaram would visit the US in the course of this week with a detailed dossier that would include “irrefutable evidence” about the involvement of Pakistan-based terrorists in the Mumbai attacks.
Many people wonder what the purpose of the 9/11 Truth movement is. It includes peace as a very important goal but also includes educating the public on the broader and less understood political tool of FALSE-FLAG terrorism. Thanks to the 9/11 Truth Movement, this term is now beginning to gain mainstream recognition by the general public. Even this evening I heard liberal radio host Thom Hartmann mention the term in relation to vice president Dick Cheney's latest idea to dress up US navy seals as Iranians and have our American boys shoot at them in order to provoke war with Iran (yes I kid you not). The film Terrorstorm also added to the exposure by documenting the history of false-flag terrorism, and even exposes the more recent 7/7 London Bombings in 2005 as a likely false-flag operation.
[NOTE: In a criminal lapse of journalistic memory, these revelations are presented as something new. No history of Pakistani ISI sponsorship of terrorist attacks is given to the readers. No ties to 9/11, to Pakistani ISI chief Mahmoud Ahmad, or other relevant information is provided.
Need I remind readers (as NY Times does not) that we've been shovelling several BILLION dollars per year over to the Pakistan regime since 9/11/01, basically to maintain this status quo situation (protecting terrorists so as to provide an endless, open-ended "war on terror" myth).
Too many low level US operatives found out about this blatant Pakistani terror attack, and monumentally stupid act of war against India, in order to keep it quiet and under wraps.]

Once again the common Indians have become the victims of terror attacks and we condemn the apathy as well as complicity of the Indian state from protecting the masses. Our organization is committed to exposing the politics of terror and in our analysis, the strategy of terrorism has replaced the politics of communal riots in dividing, weakening and communalising the masses.
In our estimation the reprehensible terror attacks that occured in the streets of Jaipur today need to be analysed in the political context.
They have occurred on the eve of major global demonstrations against the Zionist Apartheid State of Israel. Thus the news on the global media channels will be dominated by one more instance of "Muslim Terrorism" and far worse. The news regarding global opposition to Zionist Israel will be relegated to the inside pages. The breaking news on CNN, BBC etc will be "more Islamic terror in Jaipur.....". If it was not for the tragic earthquake in China, Jaipur would have been the lead story.
