APA YANG SEBENARNYA BERLAKU DI GEORGIA?

Dead civilians in South Ossetia. But you will not hear much about it on CNN or Faux News. Because they are too busy reporting ad nauseam about the extramarital shenanigans of CFR darling John Edwards.

In order to find out what's really going on in Georgia, you have to read the international press on the internet. Bush, McCain, and Obama may cast blame on Russia, but reading the international press you get a different perspective.

Salam Datuk Ron

GEORGIA is too far from us.So fokus kat Malaysia ja.Kita dah bercelaru.Salah satu rukun IMAN ...percaya kepada kitab-kitab (Al-Quran)Bila si Saiful bersumpah menggunakan Al-Quran,ada pihak mempersendakan pula.Ini menunjukkan bahawa Umat kita dah tak berapa yakin dengan Al-Quran.

Percaya atau tidak jangan buat sebarang ulasan tanpa berpengetahuan luas dalam hukum hakam agama.Bak kat orang Kedah,kalau tah leh jadi imam,jadilah makmun yang setia.

Kini rakyat kian BERCELARU.Yang gila nak jadi PM kata itu sumpah palsu....Yang bakal nak jadi PM kata ...itu pengakuan ikhlas.

Sepatutnya nak bersumpah hari tu ajak lah TOK GURU-TOK GURU sama.Baru adil kot.

Islam Pas kata tak cukup rukun
Islam Umno kata jujur dan ikhlas
Islam PKR kata sumpah lagi 50kali pun tak pa.

Kembalilah kita pada Islam yang dibawa oleh Nabi Muhammad SAW.

Wallahuaklam

What about oil pipelines running through Georgia?

The Paranoia Of Oil Cartel

Georgia's oil pipeline is key to U.S. support
Anne Gearan, Associated Press
Saturday, August 9, 2008
(08-09) 04:00 PDT Washington --

There is more than meets the eye to the frantic U.S. efforts Friday to talk Russia and American ally Georgia out of war over an obscure mountain tract most Americans have never heard of.

A look at the map and your gas credit card bill shows why.

The breakaway province of South Ossetia is claimed by Georgia, a former Soviet republic that cast its lot with the United States and the West to the eternal irritation of Moscow. But South Ossetia has resisted Georgia's rule and has been under Russia's sway for years.

Georgia sits in a tough neighborhood, shoulder to shoulder with huge Russia, not far from Iran, and astride one of the most important crossroads for the emerging wealth of the rich Caspian Sea region. A U.S.-backed oil pipeline runs through Georgia, allowing the West to reduce its reliance on Middle Eastern oil while bypassing Russia and Iran.

The dispute makes the Bush administration the middleman between a promising ally it wants to help and the powerful former adversary next door whose help it needs.

Washington praises democratic development in Georgia, delights in its contribution of combat troops for Iraq and acknowledges valuable intelligence and counterterrorism cooperation.

Moscow's cooperation is vital to numerous Washington aims in Iran, North Korea and elsewhere.

"For all those reasons, and the fact that Georgia has demonstrated that it is a close ally, we cannot simply sit by and say, 'So be it - what does South Ossetia mean to us?' " said Janusz Bugajski, director of the new European democracies project at the Center for Strategic and International Studies. "Georgia as a whole means quite a lot."

The pipeline that crosses Georgia can pump slightly more than 1 million barrels of crude oil per day, or more than 1 percent of the world's daily crude output. The 1,100-mile pipeline carries oil from Azerbaijan's Caspian Sea fields, estimated to hold the world's third-largest reserves. Its potential vulnerability was already in the spotlight after it was sabotaged this week, apparently by Kurdish separatists.

Most of the oil is bound for Western Europe, where gas prices are even higher than the $4 and more a gallon that U.S. consumers are now paying. With only so much oil to go around, what the pipeline carries affects prices elsewhere. The United States also hopes it will be a model for other development projects that could have a more direct effect on the U.S. market.

Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice was on the phone Friday morning, appealing for calm in South Ossetia, a patch of craggy farmland that is home to about 70,000 people - fewer than live in Youngstown, Ohio. In a statement later, she reiterated U.S. commitment to Georgia's "territorial integrity."

President Bush discussed the violence with Russian Prime Minister Vladimir Putin in Beijing, while the presumptive Democratic and Republican candidates to replace Bush issued worried statements. Tanks rolled as Bush spoke.

South Ossetia is one of the few places where ethnic, nationalist and other complications mean that the Cold War didn't die. U.S diplomats refer to these neighborhood squabbles as "frozen conflicts," a euphemism that belies the long-recognized threat that seemingly petty disputes can easily provoke a wider war.

The United States, European nations and others raced Friday to keep the conflict from spreading. The State Department appealed for a cease-fire and prepared to send a mediator to the region.

"We are asking our friends, and the United States among them, to somehow to try to mediate and try to persuade Russia to stop this military aggression and invasion of Georgia," said Vasil Sikharulidze, Georgia's ambassador to Washington.

Salam Datuk
Tak payah lah kita lihat jauh-jauh sampai ke Georgia. Lihat sahaja negara kita. 51 tahun dah capai kemerdekaan tetapi apakah yang telah kita capai dan ke manakah arah tuju kita? Kita letak Islam sebagai agama rasmi negara sebagaimana termaktub dalam perlembagaan negara, kita letak Agong sebagai payung mahkota, kita lantik peneraju kerajaan memerintah yang majoritinya beragama Islam, tapi negara kita penuh dengan pelbagai Royal Commission dan hari ini pula Syed Hamid laungkan Sedition Act. Istana Perak pula tidak membenarkan pihak pembangkang berkhutbah. Saiful bersumpah dengan Qur'an. Adakah Islam yang berlandaskan Qur'an dan Sunnah sudah tidak releven lagi..?
Aduhai.!. amat malang negara ku.!!. Kita sudah jadi takut dengan bayang-bayang sendiri.Pathetic..!.

Saudara Siddiq,

Sebenarnya hal racist ini adalah kesilapan pemimpin2 terdahulu sewaktu di awal kemerdekaan. Tidak dpt berfikir dgn waras bagaimana untuk membina sebuah negara bangsa. Cuba lihat di Indonesia. Teras Bangsa Indonesia, Bahasa Indonesia Teras Budaya adalah berbudayakan Melayu. Teman saya berasal daripada keturunan Cina di sana berbangga mengakui bahawa mereka adalah Bangsa Indonesia.

Kita dulu terlalu taksub untuk meneruskan kemerdekaan dan pembinaan bangsa dgn berteraskan dasar pecah dan perintah. Nah.. sekarang terimalah akibatnya, Melayu menjual Melayu..

Zaman selepas Bom Atom Hiroshima tahun 1945, penuh dengan peperangan dengan inisiatif Amerika.

Terkini adalah rangkaian peperangan sekitar laut Caspian.

Ramai sudah lupa tentang Mass Destruction Weapons milik Sadam Hussein sebagai penyebab Amerika secara unilateral menyerang Iraq.

Sadam sudah mati digantung, MDW tidak dijumpai, tetapi Amerika masih di Parsi.

Penganalisis sering mengaitkan Perang Iraq sebagai pengukuhan Amerika keatas dominasi sumber tenaga. Disitu ada minyak yang banyak. Iraq dan Afghanistan berada dalam rangkaian pengaliran minyak dari sekitar laut caspian ke dunia luar.

Sumber tenaga alternatif iaitu Nuklear juga dalam kawalan Amerika. Oleh yang demikian Iran perlu disekat Amerika dari terus maju dalam bidang nuklear.

Russia bukanlah sebuah negara kecil. Russia, satu-satu negara yang telah bergiat melengahkan perang Amerika keatas Iran.

Perang Georgia adalah balas dendam Russia keatas seterunya, Amerika, dan negara-negara sekutu.

Dengan ketenteraan yang terikat di Iraq dan Afghanistan, Amerika tidak mampu berbuat apa-apa. Negara-negara di Eropah selepas ini dijangka akan lebih berbaik dengan Russia.

Bila Amerika berusaha meletak mana-mana pemimpin dalam sesebuah negara, sering rakyat melihat dengan sinis. Permainan dominasi Amerika sangat ghairah.

Sementara Anwar Ibrahim selalu dikatakan sebagai ejen kuasa asing iaitu Amerika, suka diingatkan orang Permatang Pauh tentang dominasi kuasa stail Amerika. Sudah berjuta umat Islam tumbang ke tanah.

Tetapi bagi mereka yang ghairah ingin berkuasa, apa mereka peduli?. Diperingkat tinggi, orang jarang jujur kerana mereka bawa pisau lipat enam mata.

Salam,

Saya tidak tahu apakah istilah racist sesuai atau tidak digunakan dalam konteks Malaysia.

Tapi saya rasa , di Malaysia faham "perkauman" yang wujud adalah sesuatu yang alamiah/ semula jadi, kerana kita berbangsa-bangsa (tiga bangsa utama: Melayu, Cina dan India) dan mahu kekal dengan identiti bangsa masing-masing.

Setiap "bangsa" (bukan kaum sebenarnya) tetap mahu menjaga hak dan kepentingan bangsa masing-masing.

Dengan itu, saya kira untuk satu jangka masa yang lama, kita akan terus wujud sebagai "negara berbilang bangsa", dan saya tidak pasti bila "bangsa Malaysia" akan wujud dalam realiti.
