I've been busy in the past few days and - perhaps - few more days to come. Still there was no shortage of topics I wanted to write about. Here's a quick list of items I've been reading and watching:
Somalia's Transitional Federal Government (TFG) announced the end of the reconciliation conference which lasted for 45 days. The government considered it a success but for many reasons it's hard to agree, it was a costly flop. I'll be posting soon.
Ahmadinejad announced his country reached a milestone, just few days after Bush raised his rhetoric. There's a growing speculation that an attack on Iran is imminent, mostly based on the US build up in the Arabian/Persian. But I think the public diplomacy build up from US admin - for a big step like bombing Iran and putting the world's oil supply in jeopardy - isn't enough. That's not to rule out that Israel might take this brave step with American intervention later on. Either way, an attack on Iran would the most significant US war since the Vietnam war.
Things are going from bad to worse for Musharraf, both former prime ministers are planning to come back home soon. Nawaz Sharif will be arriving - he says - 10th of September, he plans to hold a procession - that could be potentially explosive.
I'll be posting more later, hopefully I'll be done with fixing my template.
