Anything missing in this picture?

Oh yes, that country. What was its name? Eye-rack? And the other place... er... Af-gaanis-tan, right?

The two main US military engagements (both failed already, if you ask me - or even if you don't) are nowhere to be mentioned today (August 25, 2008) among the top stories on the most mainstream site of the most mainstream US TV channel - "mainstream" at least for viewers outside the US.

Oh yes, there's a little title hidden somewhere about Jill Carroll, but she is one of "us", and the whole affair is really old news.

Apart from lip service to "our boys out there", the benefits of "liberation" and the "insufficient armour", do you want to bet that Iraqis and Afghans will not be among the themes of the US presidential campaign?

Something else missing? What about other parties and candidates?

Since the race is tight, according to CNN's own polls (I'm not linking to CNN. I'll do it only when I want to blast or praise one of its items), shouldn't those parties be included in the "math", let alone including them for the mere sake of democracy?

US Democrats beware: The Pakistanis did it!

Under the threat of an impeachment procedure, Mushrraf finally resigned.
The American political system remains unable to produce such a democratic opportunity.

The Cheney/Bush Administration (no, it's not the Bush/Cheney Administration) goes on committing crime after crime but here is how Nancy Pelosi sums up her voluntary cowardice shamelessly: "You can't talk about impeachment unless you have the facts, and you can't have the facts unless you have cooperation from the Administration." Just imagine an Administration willing to cooperate in order to chop off its own head!!!

In the meantime, Iraqis and Afghans keep getting murdered and their countries plundered under US occupation.

What could we make of that?
Does Pakistan have a healthier political system than the US of A?
