Posted on Aug 17, 2007

Here are some words to the wise for the U.S. government from a unique Pakistani media figure:  introducing (for some of us, at least) Begum Nawazish Ali, nee Ali Saleem, a drag queen who interviews politicians and celebrities in character—and colorful finery—as “Begum Sahiba” on Pakistan’s AAJ Television.

Compare recent happennings inpakistan to USA.

George Bush declares himself the “decider” and refuses to answer to anyone. Everyone is just fine & DAndy with that.
Gen Musharraf does the same only to be summoned by the Supreme court of Pakistan that since he is human so as & when the need arises he will Answer to the court.

Bush fires about 8 judges and the American courts refuse to entertain their appeals.
Gen Musharraf firses one judge and soon he is reinstated by the courts.

IF the Americans can get it, all the world wants is to be left alone and fare far away from the AmeroZionists.

But as the things are going on seems that SOON there willbe American Action in & on Iran . which sooner or latermight draw the whole world into a deep military quagmire which will result in the world at large openly rebelling to the American influences which are no good to anyone except to the People in power in USA.

As we all know Cold war is back on, Thanks to the hard work of US peace makers.

For the sake of HUMANITY, AND for the sake of PEACE, PLEASE BOYCOTT EVERYTHING ZIONIST & ISRAELI. STOP FUNDING THE GENOCIDAL MANIACS. SUPPORT PEACE. let live and everyone willlive. Massive killings such as the ones commited By USA have ben goingon since long & MAYBE the AmeroZionists failed to notice them BUT the rest of the world does know about them, hteanks to the Global NOnZionist media presence ( Because USA is not at all signatory to any of the UNO War Crimes treaties so it genereally walks away untouched by any civilized laws only to commit more crimes every few years) Hallelujah America. and Now think, do you think that mass murderers will ever be blessed by the Supreme Being that most people believe in? And i am not talking about George Bush!
