Afghanistan: Schlechte Aussichten

Anton D. Wagener, 29.04.2010 19:24

Wenige Afghanen unterstützen Karzai ! Pentagon-Bericht: Nur ein Viertel der Afghanen unterstützt Karzai .... US-Verteidigungsministerium: Korruptionsbekämpfung weitgehend erfolglos - Präsident reist in die USA .... Schlechte Nachrichten für Afghanistans Präsident Hamid Karzai, der Anfang Mai zu einem viertägigen Besuch in Washington erwartet wird: Laut einem neuen Pentagon-Bericht unterstützt die Bevölkerung nur in 29 der 121 als besonders kriegswichtig eingestuften Bezirke seine Regierung. In 48 Distrikten sympathisiert die Bevölkerung mit den Aufständischen, 44 werden als "neutral" eingestuft.

Cross posted from Worldwatch Institute's Nourishing the Planet. In Rwanda, more than 85 percent of the population’s livelihood depends on small-scale agriculture. And the majority of primary school students—roughly 60 percent— will return to rural areas to make their living in ways, instead of going on to secondary or vocational schooling or university.

Oceana statement from senior campaign director Jacqueline Savitz regarding the Deepwater Horizon rig explosion in the Gulf of Mexico

Jackie Savitz, 29.04.2010 13:07

"This event is a bitter reminder that offshore drilling is not safe, and that we need to be moving away from the dirty and dangerous energy choices of the past. Clean energy, like offshore wind, can take the place of much of our oil and gas demands – if we would only give it a chance. This would help reduce carbon dioxide emissions that are driving climate change, and ultimately put an end to accidents like this one once and for all.

We certainly hope that the climate legislation set to be released this Monday will not include an expansion of offshore drilling into areas that were previously protected and instead will stimulate the shift to the clean energy economy that we so desperately need."

FANRPAN: Working to connect farmers, researchers, and policy makers in Africa

Danielle Nierenberg, 28.04.2010 13:36

This is the first in a three-part series about the Food, Agriculture, and Natural Resources Policy Analysis Network. Cross posted from Worldwatch Institute's Nourishing the Planet. The Food, Agriculture, and Natural Resources Policy Analysis Network (FANRPAN) lives up to its name by linking farmers, businesses, academia, researchers, donors, and national and regional governments. “One thing that we {Africa} fail to do is form coalitions for a common cause,” says Dr. Lindiwe Sibanda, the CEO of FANRPAN. But by connecting rural farmers directly to the private sector, to policy-makers, and to the agricultural research community, they’re trying to build a food secure Africa.

Coupening the PDS

Dr.A.Prabaharan, Research Director, Public Action, 28.04.2010 03:42

The Public Distribution System (PDS) operating through the fair price shops are the single most crucial outlet to address the poverty and hunger in the country. Unfortunately money hungry corruption rats have not spared this vital instrument to help the poor people in the country. From top level politicians to the bottom level fair price shop sales personnel, swindling the food resources meant for the extremely poor people is order of the day. So much so these corrupt rats have bulged in their physique and wealth beyond the known sources of their income. There is no way so far these rotten rats could be controlled. The Government announces its genuine intention to rein in these rats publicly. So the sweet word goes. But nothing happens after the announcement. The recent news about the UPA II’s reform agenda to clean up the PDS is welcome. Let us wait and watch how this is going to work.

Los medios tergiversan completamente la realidad de este pequeño país y lo presentan como la antecámara del infierno basándose sobre todo en prejuicios y en la retórica. Nunca hacen estudios comparativos ni dan la palabra a los que tienen una opinión diferente sobre este tema. Tomemos el ejemplo por excelencia: los derechos humanos.

Afghanistan: „Gegner der Freiheit“ unbeeindruckt

Georg F. Waldemar, 27.04.2010 16:19

NATO tötet wieder Zivilisten ! Eine erhöhte Gefahr von Terroranschlägen in Deutschland durch die zunehmende Verwicklung der Bundeswehr in Kämpfe in Afghanistan sieht Bundesinnenminister Thomas de Maizière nicht. „Die Terrorgefahr in Deutschland verändert sich nicht mit jedem Ereignis in Afghanistan. Unser Einsatz dort verhindert ja gerade den Export von Terrorismus aus Afghanistan“, sagte de Maizière dem Hamburger Abendblatt. Ein überstürzter Abzug wäre kein Zeichen von Stärke und Glaubwürdigkeit. „Die Nachhaltigkeit einer Position ist immer etwas, das die Gegner der Freiheit beeindruckt.“ Anders als Verteidigungsminister Karl-Theodor zu Guttenberg (CSU) will de Maizière nicht von Krieg in Afghanistan sprechen. „Wir bewerten die Situation in Afghanistan rechtlich als nicht internationalen bewaffneten Konflikt im Sinne des humanitären Völkerrechts“, sagte er. Die „Terrorlage“ in Deutschland sei unverändert hoch. „Ich kann weder Entwarnung geben noch eine zusätzliche Eskalation für Anschläge in Deutschland erkennen“, teilte der Minister mit.

All miners do not harm tribal people

It is not about Vedanta versus tribals, it is basically against mining projects in tribal areas.

WASHINGTON DC (IDN) – Anybody who looks even slightly non-Caucasian should exercise extreme caution about footwear while in Arizona, whether living there or visiting.

BRD: Kriegführen nach Afghanistan

Mario Weber, 26.04.2010 21:12

Kriegskanzlerin Merkel Guttenberg stimmt auf künftige Militärinterventionen der Bundeswehr ein ..... Die Soldaten und Soldatinnen der Bundeswehr sollen künftig nicht nur in Afghanistan sondern auch in anderen Ländern ihren Blutzoll leisten – angeblich zur Verteidigung des Vaterlandes. Das stellte Verteidigungsminister Karl Theodor zu Guttenberg (CSU) am Samstag im Rahmen der Trauerfeier für vier am 15. April im Afghanistan-Einsatz getötete Soldaten im Ingolstädter Münster unmissverständlich klar. „Tod und Verwundung sind Begleiter unserer Einsätze geworden, und sie werden es auch in den nächsten Jahren sein - wohl nicht nur in Afghanistan“, sagte Guttenberg vor laufenden Fernsehkameras in Anwesenheit von tausend Angehörigen, Freunden, der Bundeskanzlerin, dem Außenminister und Spitzenpolitikern wie Horst Seehofer (CSU) sowie dem afghanischen Außenminister Salmai Rassul. Um welche Auslandseinsätze es sich dabei konkret handeln sollt, ließ Guttenberg offen. Doch braucht man nur wenig Phantasie, um sich auszumalen, dass es dabei in erster Linie um die Unterstützung der imperialen Kriegsstrategie der USA und ihrer Verbündeten innerhalb und außerhalb der NATO gehen dürfte.
