The Battle plan
General Headless Crown: Sir Ji, the battle plan is all drawn up. It has two key elements. An element of complete surprise, so that military historians will talk about it, a long time after they have forgotten the Entebbe raid. And an element of concentrated, sustained and devastating firepower to ‘shock and awe’ the enemy into submission, similar to the Baghdad invasion. More...

GB: Have you taken leave of your senses? You were asked to play ball with Musharraf and you are asking him to step down?
BB: You don’t know Mr President, he in thrall of this vicious terrorist organisation, Q League. These enemies of democracy attacked my welcome party in Karachi, crushed my rally in Rawalpindi and killed my historic long march uprising in Lahore. They are more dangerous than Al Qaida, Abu Nidal and Abu Sayyaf combined. They are headed by the Chaudhries of Gujrat, a town more dangerous than Tikrit. There was no choice Mr President. More...

Where Is My Baba?
Words fail to describe the feelings of hopelessness one feels when your protectors turn predators, pluck you from your surroundings, maim, torture and kill you or sell you to the highest bidder. All in the name of protecting freedom and liberty, without any due process of law. More...

Galloway on Pakistan
It is seems bit surreal to hear a Scottish politician give a speech about Pakistan and do it better than any Pakistani politician, past or present. But then George Galloway is no ordinary politician. He has been an outstanding spokesman for the cause of Palestinians, and against the war on Iraq, and a fearless critic of Israeli oppression.
His logic is flawless, his force of argument overpowering, his cadence mesmerising, his passion is real, his ridicule merciless. He can enthral the audience and make the 'Stones of Rome rise and mutiny'.
This is an amazing video, Galloway, the Scotsman, with his great sense of timing and occasion cheered by a Pakistani audience in London; catchy slogans raised by the audience in Urdu, Punjabi and English; followed by an excellent spoof interview by a deadpan young man. It shows you how the world has changed.
