~IN THE LINE OF FIRE~A Memoir by Pervez Musharraf

President Pervez Musharraf launched his autobiography, "In the Line of Fire", in New York on 25 September, to great fanfare abroad and anticipation at home.

This book by is drawing controversy in the Bush administration, as Bush acts surprised by the claim that Armitage threatened an attack on Pakistan if it didn't cooperate in the war in terror. Musharraf claims that the Bush administration threatened to bomb Pakistan "to the Stone Age" if it failed to cooperate with the United States against al-Qaeda and the Taliban after the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks.

In a joint press conference with , Pakistan President Pervez Musharraf Friday, Sept. 22, 2006, in the East Room at the White House president Bush admits that he was "taken aback" by the claim of the threat against Pakistan following the Sept. 11, 2001 attacks, while Pakistani President Pervez Musharraf dodges the question.

A Babur Cruise Missile was launched as a gift to President Musharraf on his birthday. This was the second test for this type of missle.

In light of the circumstances leading up to Pakistan becoming an al-ly to with the US
before the invasion of Iraq, shouldn't our government be concerned about Pakistan being a nuclear power and having the missles to deliver them?

Babur Cruise Missile
Posted by vkthakur on Saturday, August 13, 2005 (EST)
Pakistan's remarkable success in testing a long range cruise missile has brought out weaknesses in our strategic intelligence and weapon development.

Ballistic Missiles of the World

Salam to all my Turkish brothers. I hope you enjoy this thread ! I will be updating this thread regularly.

BABUR (500km. Cruise missile)

The Babur appears to share several basic similarities with the US BGM-109 Tomahawk land attack cruise missile, with the two being roughly the same size and shape and having a similar wing and engine intake design. A Pakistani source with knowledge of the programme said the project began around 1998 and was bolstered by lessons learned from Tomahawk missiles recovered in Pakistan. These US Tomahawks had failed to reach intended targets in an August 1998 strike against a terrorist camp in Afghanistan; Pakistani officials at the time acknowledged that they had recovered at least two missiles. "I'm sure they must have learned from that ... they are quite good in reverse engineering," the source noted.
Additional assistance may also have come from Chinese scientists, who have collaborated closely with Pakistan on other missile developments. Chinese assistance would be especially important in the key areas of miniaturised jet engines and guidance systems and any lessons learned from the Tomahawk are sure to make their way back to Beijing.

  1. Geezerpower,

    Voting Information! ;)

    1. For those voting Absentee Ballot...



    2. Insider Information on Diebold Voting Machines and Voter Fraud!

    Amazingly, Diebold makes other products such as ATM machines that do dispense paper receipts. They also make cash registers that print receipts to it's customers.

    People do ask: Why can I get a receipt for my Slurpee but I can't get a receipt for my Vote ?!

    This proves that Diebold and other e-Voting companies have an agenda.

    3. Empowered at the Polls.

    Voters and especially minority voters are encouraged to bring Handheld Portable Video Cameras or Voice Recorders to film any disenfranchisement or harrasment outside their polling places.

    Record any problems runarounds to vote or not being allowed to vote.

    Record Harrasment or discouragement to vote at the polls.

    If you're internet savvy you can upload your video or audio to google video or youtube.

    Don't take the law into your own hands. If you feel you've been wronged, contact an attorney!

    4. Watch the News for Exit Polling. Exit polling is a method for gauging voter mindset. Keep a lookout for poll issues.

    An exit poll is a poll of voters taken immediately after they have exited the polling stations. Unlike an opinion poll, which asks who the voter plans to vote for or some similar formulation, an exit poll asks who the voter actually voted for. Pollsters - usually private companies working for newspapers or broadcasters - conduct exit polls to gain an early indication as to how an election has turned out, as in many elections the actual result may take hours or even days to count.

    The current Poll information is pointing towards 74% of Citizens feel that the GOP is out of touch with issues. This gives one a good indication of voting attitudes.

    As was the case in the 2004 Election, the Actual votes did not match the exit polling. This is a good indication of Voter fraud and there are lawsuits still pending to attest to those allegations.

    An Attorney Hurricane will be standing by after the Election...

    Good Luck! :)

    How Sweet it is~...
