I'm getting a bit tired of the "deranged" soldier story. It was predictable, of course. The 38-year-old staff sergeant who massacred 16 Afghan civilians, including nine children, near Kandahar this week had no sooner returned to base than the defence experts and the think-tank boys and girls announced that he was "deranged". Not an evil, wicked, mindless terrorist – which he would be, of course, if he had been an Afghan, especially a Taliban – but merely a guy who went crazy.

You may have a hard time believing that the next couple of sentences you are about to read are the opening sentences of a book written by a very senior British diplomat Christopher Meyer, who was the British ambassador to the US at the time of 9/11 and the Iraq War of 2003. ‘We want you to get up the arse of the White House and stay there.’ So spoke the Prime Minister’s chief of staff Jonathan Powell, in the splendour of one of Downing Street’s reception rooms.”(DC Confidential by Christopher Meyer, 2005). Ambassador Meyer went on and added, “It was all quite hard to believe. As I sat opposite this young tousle-headed chief of staff, who had once been my subordinate, I had one of those can-it-really-be-me? moments.”

A three-month jail sentence for a U.S. Marine sergeant accused of leading a massacre of 24 civilians in Haditha is "an insult to all Iraqis", a relative of one of the victims said on Tuesday. Staff Sergeant Frank Wuterich, 31, pleaded guilty on Monday at a military base in California to dereliction of duty and faces a maximum sentence of three months' confinement,
forfeiture of two-thirds of his pay for three months and a reduction in rank. "This sentence gives us the proof, the solid proof that the Americans don't respect human rights," Ali Badr, a Haditha
resident and relative of one of those killed, said. "This is an insult to the victims and an insult to all Iraqis.

Pilkhana massacre

The vicissitudes of history and geopolitics have seasoned the Bangladeshis to be prone to occasional bloodbath, military coup and political instability. The last week’s alleged coup attempt, however, seems more like the birth pang of an unfinished revolution to rid the country of the insidious Indian hegemony.It all started in a cold February morning three years ago when 19 Indian commandos garbed themselves in the uniform of the paramilitary Bangladesh Rifle (BDR) soldiers and entered the BDR headquarter compound in Dhaka at 8.11 AM on February 25, 2009.
