[From The Nation]: Kargil, like every other meaningless war that we have fought, brings home lessons we continue to refuse to learn. Instead, we proudly call it our history written in the blood of our children. Indeed, our children penning down our misdeeds with their blood! Medals for some, few songs, a cross road renamed, and of course annual remembrance day and a memorial for those who sacrificed their tomorrow for our today; thus preparing more war fodder for our continuing misadventures. Since nothing went wrong, so there is nothing to learn. We shall do it again. We decide. You die. We sing.

Very few Pandits returning to Kashmir: Minority panel chief PDF Print E-mail

[New Delhi; Tribune News Service]: Urging Jammu and Kashmir to take action on the long-pending demand of setting up a state minority panel to inspire confidence among the minorities, the chief of the National Commission for Minorities (NCM) today admitted that migrant Kashmiri Pandits were not returning to the Valley in the expected numbers.

“It is sad that Kashmiri Pandits are returning to the Valley in very small, virtually insignificant numbers. I recently attended a convention held to reward successful wards of Kashmiri Hindu migrants. When I asked the awardees why didn’t they return to Kashmir, they said they had no real desire left to go back. That’s very sad, a poor reflection on the state of affairs,” Wajahat Habibullah told The Tribune today.

[From National Review Online]: I’m a big fan of the 1 percent. No, not the dastardly 1 percent of Occupy Wall Street myth; I’m partial, instead, to the 1 percent of Congress that takes seriously the threat of Islamic-supremacist influence operations against our government.

The people have 435 representatives serving in the House and another hundred in the Senate. Of these 535, a total of 288 are Republicans — 241 and 47 in the lower and upper chambers, respectively. Of these, only five House conservatives — five — have had the fortitude to raise concerns about the Islamist connections of government officials entrusted with positions enabling them to shape U.S. policy.

Think about that. Republicans purport to be the national-security party. For decades this claim was well founded, starting with Ronald Reagan’s clarity in seeing the Soviets as enemies to be defeated, not accommodated. President Reagan’s plan for the Cold War was, “We win, they lose,” and he pulled it off because he was not under any illusions about who “they” were.
