“This is in addition to our having experience in using guerrilla warfare and the war of attrition to fight tyrannical superpowers, as we, alongside the mujahedin, bled Russia for ten years, until it went bankrupt and was forced to withdraw in defeat... So we are continuing this policy in bleeding
If the quote above from Osama Bin laden, the World most wanted man since Adolf Hitler, is not lost on my reader, the implications of the current war of attrition between the United States and Islamic terrorists at different corners of the world would be obvious especially when put against the emerging global trend of brazen challenge to American supremacy as well as ballooning budget deficit incurred by a spend thrift government.
No doubt, the most appealing place to watch the ugly American drama is the annual talk shop organized by that impotent undemocratic institution called the United Nations. Here, with a broad array of murderers, killers, dictators, election riggers and monk slaughtering maniacs, the United Nation always relish in talking nonsense and doing nothing at least until recent times. It used to be that the high brow shops of

Drawing inspiration from these accusations, Ahmadinejad spoke of
To any independent observer, Ahmadinejad made out well from this outing. Here he was pointing the fingers back at his accusers legitimately. But to any American viewer or lover of the greatest man made creation since toast bread called the

Directly and indirectly connected to this of course is an unsustainable war that is ongoing; the strife and hatred generated by it is even more dangerous. The current war in
Well, why do you and I need to worry you might ask? We need to worry because of the alternatives out there. I shiver in trepidation when I consider a world with
America is a far more benevolent world power than China or Russia will be, and her declining influence and power should be of immediate concern to any peace loving citizen of the world be it in Nigeria, Russia, China or even Japan. We live in a dangerous world and it becoming even more dangerous everyday.
