Israel Termed A 'Nuclear Power' By US Officials
In the last two weeks, two non-senior US officials indirectly called on Israel to start planning on cancelling its nuclear weapons programs. Even though they said this is not intended for 'the foreseeable future', their publicly terming Israel a nuclear power on a par with India and Pakistan might be a sign that the US perceives of nuclear issues as too serious to condone the double standards it employs freely on other issues.

Hispanic Publication Rejects Iraq Recommendations

El Paso, TX (PRWeb) December 18, 2006 -- The Border Observer, in EL Paso, Texas has objected to the absence of Hispanic participation in the formation of American policy on Iraq; asserts Iraq Study Group conclusions are flawed and proposes a new regime in Iraq.

?Washington needs to be reminded that the blood being shed in Iraq is Anglo, Hispanic, Black and Asian. The Hispanic community has earned the right to opine on matters of American national interest. The omission of Hispanic voices in the development of the Iraq Study Report on Iraq is unacceptable," said Jaime O. Perez, editor of The Border Observer.

The Border Observer is an English Language publication that serves the southern New Mexico, West Texas and Northern Mexico region. Its readers are largely Mexican American. It has offered additional recommendations to those presented by the Iraq Study Group to respond to the crisis in Iraq.

"The fact is, the neocons got us into a mess and there is no way to extricate ourselves from it unless we change our strategic course and complete the mission. In the words of President George W. Bush ?Failure is not an option,?" added Perez.

?With political uncertainty common in the Iraq debate, Border Observer Hispanic readers have found succinct insight and research to be a beacon of clarity in a sea of half-truths and misinformation,? said Vanoy Barton, a regular reader.

"A week before the Study Group issued its recommendations, I wrote that many analysts understood that in any organized group, when a strongman is removed, a vacuum of authority is created that leads to conflict among those subjected to them until another alternative central authority is reestablished or a power sharing arrangement is negotiated among the various actors. Consequently our readers were not caught off guard. We have now seen what happens when military operations are commenced with rhetoric as the basis, rather than fact." Mr. Perez commented. "It is the duty and the right of Hispanics to seat themselves at the table and provide solutions."
