    Politics


    More details revealed about Pakistan's role in nuclear technology proliferation. General Musharraf and Gen Jehangir Karamat, the army chief from 1996 to 1998, had known of and approved the barter of nuclear technology for North Korean ballistic missile technology. Warhead designs link Libya's nuclear program to Pakistan.

    Compare search results for India with search results for Pakistan. Most of the search results for India are economy and technology related. Most of the search results for Pakistan are related to nuclear proliferation and terrorism.

    In a shocking development, Peter Bleach, who had been sentenced to life imprisonment for his involvement in the 1995 Purulia arms drop case, was released today on a Presidential pardon. It is totally hypocritical of a government which demands that Pakistan hand over 20 wanted terrorists. Peter Bleach, if public memory is short, is the prime accused in the air drop of an arms consignment, possibly to militant groups in Bengal. He was arrested along with five Latvian air crew in late 1995. They were all convicted in Jan 2000 and sentenced to life. However the Latvian crew were released six months later under a Presidential clemency. Random ramblings didn't exist then (even though the random rambler did), otherwise you'd have read about it here for sure!

    Surely if it was proved that Bleach and his associates were guilty of trying to wage or aid a war against India, they cannot be let off. I think there maybe some dealings between the governments, possibly in extraditing criminals wanted by Indian law, who're seeking asylum from the UK.
