Can America defend its nuclear arsenal? Jang Economic Forum, Married woman languishes in private jail as Kari,

Can America defend its nuclear arsenal? - ZAHIR KAZMI - US intelligence agencies knew months before the November 05 Fort Hood shooting that suspect Army Major Nidal Malik Hasan tried to contact people with Al-Qaeda links, ABC News reported November 09, citing two US officials.

Paul Krugman - And if Tea Party Republicans do win big next year, what has already happened in California could happen at the national level. In California, the G.O.P. has essentially shrunk down to a rump party with no interest in actually governing — but that rump remains big enough to prevent anyone else from dealing with the state’s fiscal crisis. If this happens to America as a whole, as it all too easily could, the country could become effectively ungovernable in the midst of an ongoing economic disaster.

Jang Economic Forum: Many economic problems Pakistan is facing can be solved by stopping the theft of electricity in the country. To do this, there is a need for making a force after the fashion of the Railways Police. The society should boycott an electricity thief. Cases should be registered against them with unbailable warrants. If any influential person is found backing them, he should be exposed in the media. Ha ha ha, and who will bell the cat?

Nicholas Kristoff - Last year, Canada became the first country to conclude that BPA can be hazardous to humans, and Massachusetts issued a public health advisory in August warning against any exposure to BPA by pregnant or breast-feeding women or by children under the age of 2.

Married woman languishes in private jail as Kari - The distressed man has also sought the help of the Human Rights Commission of Pakistan (HRCP) for the recovery of his wife, and to save both their lives. In a letter addressed to the HRCP, he wrote that he was a poor labourer and was legitimately married to Mukhtar Bibi. However, they had been declared as “Karo” and “Kari” by Chando.

“Karo-Kari” is a compound term, which literally means “black male” and “black efmale” - metaphoric terms for adulterer and adulteress. Being labelled thus leads more often than not to the killing of both the man and the woman found allegedly guilty of being involved an illicit affair. This is especially true in rural areas of the southern province of Sindh. In other parts of the country, women are more likely to be accused of sexual improprieties, and murdered in order to wash the sullied family honour.

Mauren Dowd - And as far as doing God’s work, I think the bankers who took government money and then gave out obscene bonuses are the same self-interested sorts Jesus threw out of the temple.

Kayani - “Since terrorists were incapable of confronting the military operation, they were targeting innocent civilians,” said Army chief General Kayani in his address to the 123rd Corps Commanders Conference, held first time since terrorists launched a failed attack on the General Headquarters (GHQ) some weeks back. I will file this under No Brainer

Thomas Friedman - It is going to be a long time before we transform the world’s transportation fleet so it is emission-free. But right now — like tomorrow — we could eliminate 17 percent of all global emissions if we could halt the cutting and burning of tropical forests.
