Mass protests Blighty pets

To protest against the continuing presence of British and U.S. forces in a sovereign country, thousands of anti-war protesters from across Britain walked through Central London to demand an end to the ‘occupation’ of Iraq.

Power cut hits NY

What happens when one does not think of the future predicaments owing to human limitations? North east America had its own bit. Here, in Maryland, things were fine.

Apparently, a bus would be flagged off at 6 a.m. IST from Lahore today. About the same time…

As we know, a group of rogue nations met at the summit to encourage cooperative (read: competitive) action on key global priorities (read: globe is defined by them), spurring economic growth (read: of their own markets); combating terrorism (read: to curb popular resentments in their countries); preventing the proliferation of weapons of mass destruction (read: to forbid others of their luxuries); and promoting prosperity in the developing world (read: by devising ways to keep them from being developed or declaring them as such). Funny that I had to use the parenthesis to make…

Propaganda
