Doth Colour Maketh The Man?

Doth Colour Maketh The Man? Yes it was earth-shattering that Obama won but does colour of the skin dictate what kind of person/leader they will be? For many Pakistanis the news that the U.S is contemplating airstrikes into Balochistan, the most wretched province is an outrage.

Many innocent,totally deprived individuals will die. Besides which, "coincidentally" Baluchistan is also the largest province. Such an act by the U.S would be a total invasion of space & territory. Pakistan might as well hand over the country.

Once they have access to strike they can slowly build up more access.What many may not know is that access to Baluchistan means access to FIVE borders. Baluchistan, because of its proximity to China, Iran, Afghanistan, India AND the former U.S.S.R. is a highly desirable piece of world property.

Ever played the game RISK? Sounds familar to it doesn't it?

Instead of it being merely a game it is a chilling replica of the way the politics of the world works.

Make the right choice, Obama

Thank you for sharing your feelings and thoughts on the contemplated air strikes in Balochistan. It makes complete sense to me why that is such an upsetting and unsettling possibility and why it feels so dangerous. I, too, hope that choices are made in this new administration that are no longer destructive, but reparative.
Be well,
Jocelyn

Thank you. I recently travelled through baluchistan talking to the people & filming interviews with them particularly the women. They are a brave and downtrodden people.
