Will Obama do the right thing by the suffering Palestinians?
Barack Obama's victory has caused a mixed response from various sources. On the cautious side we have an intellectual giant like Noam Chomsky claiming like all US Presidents, Obama too would be held hostage by the big boys of big business - or the plutocrats - who actually run the nation and by extension the entire world. He believes US Presidents are puppets one and all. On the emotion side we see a wonderful human being like Rev. Jesse Jackson shedding tears of joy on hearing of Obama's victory in the US presidential elections. And it's hard not to cry with him, believe me you.
Indo-China border row far from over
We are back to square one as far as the border dispute with China is concerned. Some 12 meetings held on the border issue since the two countries agreed to talk about it have been futile. China's foreign affairs spokesman, Qin Gang, has said: "We deeply regret the Indian side's remarks that Arunachal Pradesh is a part of India…New Delhi has not taken into account the historical facts." Beijing, Gang says, never recognized the "illegal" McMahon Line and that the status of the border state was "never officially demarcated."
