"when the king of Israel had read the letter" - (Small Community)

Small Community around Billion Dollars

A poor lonely young Muslim in a barren village cannot become a super-hero in the terror business.

Someone in an office of a tall building in a big European or American city will provide money for activists in the front to recruit a poor lonely young Muslim who is expected to act as a suicide bomber.

If a religion teaches a poor lonely young Muslim in a barren village that what can change his life and his world is not war but faith in God, he would not be abused and sacrificed by those who have big money at the front or huge money in a big city while being engaged in terror business.

So, what I expect is a poor lonely young Muslim in a barren village starting his life as a hero in a Islamic community regardless of how much his success realized through only dependence on his faith in Allah will be known to the world.

As Jesus Christ proved, a son of a rich family cannot be trusted.

SECTION I: From 1776 To 2008 Through 1997 and 2001 (Recap)

On February 14, 2008, I presented the following family/association tree (since the history of the Rothschild family and what is symbolized by them has been parallel with the history of the U.S.).

The above time-line presentation of people links Rothschilds, Chrurchills, and Princess Diana through British/American high-society members and elite Arabs who are reportedly associated with U.S. President-class politicians and Arab King-class elites.

Behind the scene, in an upside down manner, of the recent part of the timeline are Clintons and Bushs, of course.

President Mr. Clinton missed the ominous sign of the 9/11 Terror of 2001 and President Mr. W. Bush missed the ominous sign of the 9/15 Lehman Shock of 2008.

The point at issue here is however how the death of Princess Diana in Paris in August of 1997 affected Osama bin Laden.

(The death of JFK Jr. in 1999 could influence Osama bin Laden, too.)

Anyway, pious Judaists, pious Christians, and pious Muslims should understand that those super-rich people are under power of history which is manifestation of the holy will of the God Almighty.

For example:

Bush Senior Met With Bin Laden's Brother on 9/11

Paul Joseph Watson

Comment: Despite studying September 11 for two years solid, one fact I only just discovered is that George W. Bush's father was meeting with Osama bin Laden's brother, Shafig bin Laden, in the Ritz-Carlton Hotel, Washington, on the morning of 9/11. They were on Carlyle Group business just a few miles from where hijackers supposedly acting on behalf of Osama bin Laden would fly a plane into the Pentagon.

Recall that the chief financier of the so-called hijackers, Pakistan's Chief Spy General Mahmoud Ahmad, was meeting with Bush administration officials the week before 9/11. He also met with Bob Graham and Porter Goss on the morning of the attacks, who would later go on to head the first 9/11 investigative committee.

For another example:

May 1996: Saudis and Al-Qaeda Allegedly Strike a Secret Deal

French intelligence secretly monitors a meeting of Saudi billionaires at the Hotel Royale Monceau in Paris this month with the financial representative of al-Qaeda.

"The Saudis, including a key Saudi prince joined by Muslim and non-Muslim gun traffickers, [meet] to determine who would pay how much to Osama. This [is] not so much an act of support but of protection—a payoff to keep the mad bomber away from Saudi Arabia." [PALAST, 2002, PP. 100] Participants also agree that bin Laden should be rewarded for promoting Wahhabism (an austere form of Islam that requires literal interpretation of the Koran) in Chechnya, Kashmir, Bosnia, and other places. [FIFTH ESTATE, 10/29/2003 ] This extends an alleged secret deal first made between the Saudi government and bin Laden in 1991. Later, 9/11 victims' relatives will rely on the "nonpublished French intelligence report" of this meeting in their lawsuit against important Saudis. [STAR-TRIBUNE (MINNEAPOLIS), 8/16/2002]

According to French counterterrorism expert Jean-Charles Brisard and/or reporter Greg Palast, there are about 20 people at the meeting, including Saudi intelligence head Prince Turki al-Faisal, an unnamed brother of bin Laden and an unnamed representative from the Saudi Defense Ministry. [FIFTH ESTATE, 10/29/2003 ; CANADIAN BROADCASTING CORPORATION, 10/29/2003] Palast claims that Saudi businessman Abdullah Taha Bakhsh attends the meeting. Bakhsh also saved Bush Jr.'s Harken Oil from bankruptcy around 1990. Palast claims the notorious Saudi billionaire Adnan Khashoggi also attends the meeting. [DEMOCRACY NOW!, 3/4/2003; SANTA FE NEW MEXICAN, 3/20/2003] In a somewhat tongue-in-cheek manner, Slate has claimed that Khashoggi is a "shadowy international arms merchant" who is "connected to every scandal of the past 40 years." Amongst other things, he was a major investor in BCCI and a key player in the Iran-Contra affair. [Slate, 12/4/00, Slate, 11/14/01, Slate, 3/12/03] [SLATE, 12/4/2000; SLATE, 11/14/2001; SLATE, 3/12/2003]

Palast, noting that the French monitored the meeting, asks, "Since US intelligence was thus likely informed, the question becomes why didn’t the government immediately move against the Saudis?" [PALAST, 2002, PP. 100]

SECTION III: Youth Unemployment in the Arab World

Poverty and unemployment are the major causes for the anger of young Arabs. However there are three advantages in the Arab world: Islam, the common cultural/racial features, and crude oil.

While images from protests in the Arab region go around the world, it is timely to look at the reasons that brought these mostly young people on to the streets. An extremely high youth unemployment rate of 23.4 per cent in 2010, is one major but not the only cause for these popular uprisings, says Dorothea Schmidt, senior employment expert in the ILO office in Cairo.

"With respect to the employment situation, the extremely high youth unemployment rates in the region averaging more than 23 per cent, are most worrying”, explains Dorothea Schmidt, adding that “for young women, the average unemployment rate of 31.5 percent is even worse – besides the fact that their labour market participation is already much lower than anywhere else in the world".

According to the ILO expert, even if young people have jobs, working conditions are often very poor: low wages, little social protection, lack of secure contracts and career prospects, and weak or lacking trade unions to give them a voice. "So it is no wonder that many young people are angry", she says.

It is time to consider how to make the best use of the three advantages for their success. But, first of all, Arab peoples might need democracy to leverage all the three merits for their prosperity. And , absolutely war on America should be avoided, for peace is an essential condition to build the prosperous Arab.

Direct punishment by the God or Allah is what a man should be the most afraid of.

The Dinner Table

In the name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful.

[5.2] O you who believe! do not violate the signs appointed by Allah nor the sacred month, nor (interfere with) the offerings, nor the sacrificial animals with garlands, nor those going to the sacred house seeking the grace and pleasure of their Lord; and when you are free from the obligations of the pilgrimage, then hunt, and let not hatred of a people-- because they hindered you from the Sacred Masjid-- incite you to exceed the limits, and help one another in goodness and piety, and do not help one another in sin and aggression; and be careful of (your duty to) Allah; surely Allah is severe in requiting (evil)
In democracy, accountability is one of the most important components supporting it. In religion, you may have to perform accountability only to the God, bur in democracy, it must be practiced to other people.

And, no one can keep a leading position for long in a democratic society if he honestly fulfills the duty of accountability.

Indeed, major players in the world will have to be changed toward 2012, though it is still doubtful that President Mr. Barack Obama can win the next Presidential Election if he is regarded as president who has won the War on Terror or at least the War on Osama bin Laden.

2Ki 5:6 And he brought the letter to the king of Israel, saying, Now when this letter is come unto thee, behold, I have therewith sent Naaman my servant to thee, that thou mayest recover him of his leprosy.

2Ki 5:7 And it came to pass, when the king of Israel had read the letter, that he rent his clothes, and said, Am I God, to kill and to make alive, that this man doth send unto me to recover a man of his leprosy? wherefore consider, I pray you, and see how he seeketh a quarrel against me.

2Ki 5:8 And it was so, when Elisha the man of God had heard that the king of Israel had rent his clothes, that he sent to the king, saying, Wherefore hast thou rent thy clothes? let him come now to me, and he shall know that there is a prophet in Israel.

2Ki 5:9 So Naaman came with his horses and with his chariot, and stood at the door of the house of Elisha.

2Ki 5:10 And Elisha sent a messenger unto him, saying, Go and wash in Jordan seven times, and thy flesh shall come again to thee, and thou shalt be clean.

"which do hunger and thirst after righteousness" - (War of Osama bin Laden)

Back to Tokyo...
To Tokyo...

War of Osama bin Laden

In summary or put simply, Osama bin Laden carried out the 9/11 Terror on New York and Washington DC since he suspected that he was going to be betrayed by the Taliban Government.

The disaster on September 11, 2001 was intended to destroy the delicate relationship between the Taliban and the Bush Administration.

This is one of hypotheses about the tragedy that eventually took hundreds of thousands of lives in Iraq and Afghanistan in addition to 3000 in the East Coast of the U.S.

So, could we say behind the scene of this bad plot there was any proud hero of any sort?

SECTION I: Story of War on Osama bin Laden

It began to manifest itself to the world in 1998.
1998 United States embassy bombings

The 1998 U.S. Embassy bombings were a series of attacks that occurred on August 7, 1998, in which hundreds of people were killed in simultaneous truck bomb explosions at the United States embassies in the major East African cities of Dar es Salaam, Tanzania and Nairobi, Kenya. The attacks were linked to local members of the Egyptian Islamic Jihad, brought Osama bin Laden and Ayman al-Zawahiri to the attention of the US public for the first time, and resulted in the U.S. Federal Bureau of Investigation placing bin Laden on its Ten Most Wanted list.
According to journalist Lawrence Wright, the Nairobi operation was named after the Holy Kaaba in Mecca; the Dar es Salaam bombing was called Operation al-Aqsa in Jerusalem, but "neither had an obvious connection to the American embassies in Africa. Bin Laden initially said that the sites had been targeted because of the 'invasion' of Somalia; then he described an American plan to partition Sudan, which he said was hatched in the embassy in Nairobi. He also told his followers that the genocide in Rwanda had been planned inside the two American embassies."

Wright concludes that bin Laden's actual goal was "to lure the United States into Afghanistan, which had long been called 'The Graveyard of Empires.'"[5] According to a 1998 memo authored by Mohammed Atef and seized by the FBI, around the time of the attacks, al-Qaeda had both an interest in and specific knowledge of negotiations between the Taliban and the American-led gas pipeline consortium CentGas.[6]

The stark nature and the level of atrocity of these bombings in East Africa must be balanced with a critical sense of urgency on Osama bin Laden's side.

The reasonable factor is that the Taliban was going to shake hands with the U.S. for a big natural gas pipeline project. It would be profitable for both an American energy company and the Taliban Government to operate and manage a long pipeline from the Caspian Sea region down to the Indian Ocean or to Pakistan/India. But, if this big project had been promoted, the U.S. would have gained a foothold in Afghanistan. Then, Osama bin Laden's group would have been surely put aside out of the loop of power in Afghanistan. Then where could he have moved? Back to Sudan? Back to Saudi Arabia?

Accordingly, literally for existence in Afghanistan, Osama bin Laden ventured to launch a war on America.
U.S. negotiations with Taliban over oil pieline
The e-mail memo was found in 1998 on a computer seized by the FBI during its investigation into the 1998 African embassy bombings, which were sponsored by al-Qaida. Atef's memo was discovered by FBI counter-terrorism expert John O'Neill, who left the bureau in 2001, complaining that U.S. oil interests were hindering his investigation into al-Qaida. O’Neill, who became security chief at the World Trade Center, died in the Sept. 11 attack.

Atef's memo shines new light on what al-Qaida knew about U.S. efforts to normalize relations with the Taliban in exchange for the fundamentalist government's supporting the construction of an oil and gas pipeline across Afghanistan. As documented in the book I coauthored with Guillaume Dasquie, "Bin Laden: The Forbidden Truth," the Clinton and Bush administrations negotiated with the Taliban, both to get the repressive regime to widen its government as well as look favorably on U.S. companies' attempts to construct an oil pipeline. The Bush White House stepped up negotiations with the Taliban in 2001.

There is apparently misperception on Osama bin Laden's side about the intention of the U.S. The Clinton Administration did not seem to have any resolute policy on Islamic terror. Though it was shocked by the bombings of its embassies in East Africa, President Mr. Bill Clinton simply ordered to fire cruise missiles to possible camps of Osama bin Laden's in Afghanistan in addition to some factory believed to be run by AlQaeda in Sudan. The U.S. Government soon understood the attack failed, but did not immediately step up attacks on Osama bin Laden. CIA tried to take on him in cooperation with Pakistan, but the plan was abandoned in October 1999, since a coup occurred in Pakistan. The American Media also gradually forgot about Osama bin Laden. They tried to leave the matter into the obscurity. The Clinton Administration did not regard Osama bin Laden as the worst threat the U.S. had faced in decade at the time.

But, Osama bin Laden must have been be crazed with fear and anxiety, since the U.S. actually targeted him with scores of missiles and CIA promoted a real plan to attack him with the Pakistani military. He and AlQaeda were alone in the world to become a great enemy of America. They absolutely needed a strong base to protect themselves all the more, ironically in this context. They tried to harm relationships between the Taliban Government and the U.S. Their action invoked sheer retaliation from the U.S. So, he and AlQaeda needed Afghanistan bases all the more to protect themselves. In addition, not only the Islamic world but all the world came to know Osama bin Laden's existence and standpoint. His honor came to be affected. He had to intensify his posture as a great enemy of America, though the U.S. Government gradually reduced activities to take on him and the U.S. Media tried to leave the matter into the obscurity, probably partly because Osama bin Laden was a son of a rich Saudi Arabian family.

Yet, Osama bin Laden took part in an interview by ABC in May 1998, a little over two months before the U.S. embassy bombings in Kenya and Tanzania. It showed his underlying inclination toward heroism and optimism. Though at the time, he was already marked by FBI as a terrorist due to involvement of attacks on American soldiers in Somalia in 1992 and he himself proclaimed war against the U.S. in August 1996, he looked so optimistic about his fate and circumstances around the Taliban. Anyway, in the interview, Osama bin Laden stressed the influence of Israel and Judaists as the most grave matter about the U.S.

The American people, by and large, do not know the name bin Laden, but they soon likely will. Do you have a message for the American people?

I say to them that they have put themselves at the mercy of a disloyal government, and this is most evident in Clinton's administration ... . We believe that this administration represents Israel inside America. Take the sensitive ministries such as the Ministry of Exterior and the Ministry of Defense and the CIA, you will find that the Jews have the upper hand in them. They make use of America to further their plans for the world, especially the Islamic world. American presence in the Gulf provides support to the Jews and protects their rear. And while millions of Americans are homeless and destitute and live in abject poverty, their government is busy occupying our land and building new settlements and helping Israel build new settlements in the point of departure for our Prophet's midnight journey to the seven heavens. America throws her own sons in the land of the two Holy Mosques for the sake of protecting Jewish interests. ...

The American government is leading the country towards hell. ... We say to the Americans as people and to American mothers, if they cherish their lives and if they cherish their sons, they must elect an American patriotic government that caters to their interests not the interests of the Jews. If the present injustice continues with the wave of national consciousness, it will inevitably move the battle to American soil, just as Ramzi Yousef and others have done. This is my message to the American people. I urge them to find a serious administration that acts in their interest and does not attack people and violate their honor and pilfer their wealth. ...

In America, we have a figure from history from 1897 named Teddy Roosevelt. He was a wealthy man, who grew up in a privileged situation and who fought on the front lines. He put together his own men - hand chose them - and went to battle. You are like the Middle East version of Teddy Roosevelt.

I am one of the servants of Allah. We do our duty of fighting for the sake of the religion of Allah. It is also our duty to send a call to all the people of the world to enjoy this great light and to embrace Islam and experience the happiness in Islam. Our primary mission is nothing but the furthering of this religion. ... Let not the West be taken in by those who say that Muslims choose nothing but slaughtering. Their brothers in East Europe, in Turkey and in Albania have been guided by Allah to submit to Islam and to experience the bliss of Islam. Unlike those, the European and the American people and some of the Arabs are under the influence of Jewish media..

Osama bin Laden's taking part in an interview by the American media has not occurred after this 1998 one. He did not launch any attacks on Israel, either.

Till he felt that he was really targeted by the American Government after the 1998 United States embassy bombings in East Africa, Osama bin Laden had looked like enjoying a kind of status of being an Islamic hero. But, after the bombing aimed at destroying the deal between the Taliban and the U.S., he looked like having no luxury of enjoying the Media communications and security guarantees. On the other hand, the pipeline project in Afghanistan surfaced again when the Bush Administration started.
Afghanistan, the Taliban and the Bush Oil Team
by Wayne Madsen, January 2002
The Taliban visits to Washington continued up to a few months prior to the September 11 attacks. The State Department's Bureau of Intelligence and Research's South Asian Division maintained constant satellite telephone contact with the Taliban in Kandahar and Kabul. Washington permitted the Taliban to maintain a diplomatic office in Queens, New York headed by Taliban diplomat Abdul Hakim Mojahed. In addition, U.S. officials, including Assistant Secretary of State for South Asian Affairs Christina Rocca, who is also a former CIA officer, visited Taliban diplomatic officials in Islamabad. In the meantime, the Bush administration took a hostile attitude towards the Islamic State of Afghanistan, otherwise known as the Northern Alliance. Even though the United Nations recognized the alliance as the legitimate government of Afghanistan, the Bush administration, with oil at the forefront of its goals, decided to follow the lead of Saudi Arabia and Pakistan and curry favor with the Taliban mullahs of Afghanistan. The visits of Islamist radicals did not end with the Taliban. In July 2001, the head of Pakistan's pro-bin Laden Jamiaat-i-Islami Party, Qazi Hussein Ahmed, also reportedly was received at the George Bush Center for Intelligence (aka, CIA headquarters) in Langley, Virginia.

According to the Washington Post, the Special Envoy of Mullah Omar, Rahmatullah Hashami, even came to Washington bearing a gift carpet for President Bush from the one-eyed Taliban leader. The Village Voice reported that Hashami, on behalf of the Taliban, offered the Bush administration to hold on to bin Laden long enough for the United States to capture or kill him but, inexplicably, the administration refused. Meanwhile, Spozhmai Maiwandi, the director of the Voice of America's Pashtun service, jokingly nicknamed "Kandahar Rose" by her colleagues, aired favorable reports on the Taliban, including a controversial interview with Mullah Omar.

Back around 1994, the U.S. and Pakistan agreed to put an end to a state of civil war in Afghanistan so that US Unocal Corporation would install long pipelines through Afghanistan. In 1997, representatives of the Taliban visited America to meet officials of the Clinton Administration who provided financial aid for the Taliban Government. They also visited Texas to be welcomed by the American oil major. Though the Clinton Administration stopped relationships with the Taliban in the wake of the 1998 attacks, the negotiations related to the pipe line continued behind the scene. (It is also said that in 2000 a representative of Taliban entered negotiation with the U.S. on extradition of Osama bin Laden through the third country in Frankfurt, Germany, though no agreement was made, since the Taliban requested something the U.S. could not accept.)

In 2001 when Mr. George W. Bush assumed office of US Presidency, he reportedly started to revive the pipeline plan through Afghanistan. It is also reported that some meeting was held in Berlin on development of the trans-Afghanistan pipeline with participants from the U.S., Russia, Iran, and Pakistan. The Taliban was invited there but did not join it. Though this meeting failed, the Bush Administration was making efforts to win the Taliban over to their side.

Meanwhile, in February 2001, Mohamed Atta al-Sayed was instructed by Osama bin Laden to go and learn how to pilot a passenger plane in aviation school in Florida, USA.

Illiteracy & War

If 100% of the Afghan people could read and write, they would not support the Taliban and AlQaeda.

If 100% of the Pakistani people could read and write, they would not support Mr. Osama bin Laden.

If 100% of the American people could command a high level of language skills like President Mr. Obama and Secretary Mrs. Clinton, they would not be fooled by super-rich people, namely big beneficiaries from the War in Afghanistan.

The archenemy of poor Muslims and poor Americans is the same, illiteracy.

SECTION V: Illiteracy: More Enemy than America

Muslims in the world should realize that their archenemy is not the U.S. It is illiteracy. It is a social system that deliberately leaves many Muslims in a state of illiteracy.

For example, had the literacy rate of the Soviet Union been lower than it was actually between 1950's and 1980's, there would have been a big chance of nuclear warfare between the USSR and the USA.

Literacy rate among predominantly Muslim societies: Soviet Republics vs. Other


Kazakhstan: 99.3%
Tajikistan: 99.1%
Uzbekistan: 99%
Turkmenistan: 98.3%
Azerbaijan: 98.2%
Kyrgyzstan: 98.1%

Islamic States:

Afghanistan: 12.6% (The only Muslim country in the region that was not part of the USSR)
Bahrain: 85% (A pleasant surprise)
Brunei: 88.5%
Iran: 73%
Mauritania: 31.9%
Oman: 73.5%
Pakistan: 36% (Thanks to General Al-Huq's Madrassas)
Yemen: 30% (It would be interesting to compare the old Democratic Yemen vs. the part that had always been under Islamism)
Saudi Arabia: 70.8%

Islam as State Religion:

Qatar: 88.6%
Algeria: 61%
Bangladesh: 31.8%
Egypt: 59.4% (This is fucking pathetic, given that Egypt's longtime party is a member of the Socialist International. Why those fucks have not been expelled, I'll never know.)
Kuwait: 91%
Malaysia: 85.4% (Wonder about the ethnic breakdown here? I'd assume close to universal among Chinese.)
Maldives: 97.3% (Hmmm...For a country barbaric enough to ban religious minorities from voting or acquiring full citizenship, surprisingly impressive.)
Morocco: 39.6%
Tunisia: 65.3%
UAE: 81.7%

Secular states with Muslim pluralities and majorities, excluding ex-Soviet:

Burkina Faso: 15.2%
Gambia: 32.8%
Guinea-Bissau: 27.4%
Mali: 39.6%
Senegal: 30.7%
Chad: 39.3%
Djibouti: 59.4%
Somalia: 25.8% (The new President is a graduate of Carleton University (my school), so maybe it'll get better.)
Indonesia: 86.8% (No thanks to Suharto.)
Albania: 79.5% (Coincidentally, a Venezuelan party that identifies itself as an ideological heir of Enver Hoxha opposes the Bolivarian Revolution. Given Albania's poor literacy rate, one ought to not be surprised.)
Bosnia and Herzegovina: 94% (Thanks, Tito.)
Turkey: 79.6% (Not surprising. Some segments of the population have strongly resisted secularization.)


SECTION VI: Japan with 99.999% Literacy Rate

As Japanese people invented its unique phonogram letters based on Kanji (imported Chinese letters) before the 10th century, reading and writing well prevailed among men and women in the noble class, the samurai class, and the farmers, the craftsmen, and the merchants unlike in China where difficulty in learning complex Chinese letters hindered most of ordinary people and farmers from learning letters till the end of WWII when the Chinese Communist Party adopted simplified Chinese letters.

The Literacy Rate in Japan

2008-08-20 Posted in mentality and culture

One of the things that amazed Europeans that arrived in Japan at the end of the Edo period(1603-1867)was that Japanese were highly educated. It was believed that the literacy rate was over 80 percent in cities like Edo (now Tokyo) and Osaka.

The first nationwide literacy test was conducted by GHQ in 1948 during the Occupation period. It tested about 20,000 Japanese men and woman between the ages of 15 and 64 throughout the country. It was found that the rate of literacy was higher than the world and American standards.

The test result was cited as proof that the level of literacy of the majority of prewar Japanese was high, and it dismissed the Occupation policy which claimed for the script reform (Romanization).

With this higher level (almost 100%) of the literacy rate, the Empire of Japan ventured into the Pearl Harbor Attack to save its face and interest in the Chinese Continent, since the war was expected by Japanese elites to be halted in a few years into peace negotiations with the U.S. Probably, it was a religious matter that superseded judgement of the Japanese people based on the intelligence backed by a higher level of literacy.

(In this context, the Empire of Japan was the only Asian nation that fought war against nations of Christianity in the world-history scale, as an Asian nation of non-Judaism/Christianity/Islam religion, though North Korea, China, and Vietnam have followed European socialism fighting a local war against the U.S., in these 1000 years of history.

To make sure, I have ever met only two Japanese persons who could not read Japanese letters though I have been engaged in the Japanese society for decades. Probably, around one in 100,000 but not more than one in 10,000, an illiteracy rate among the 127 million people.)

SECTION VII: Illiteracy: Archenemy of America, Too

To be an American citizen or become US President, you do not have to fluently read and write English. You just have to be born in America, if it is in Hawaii or Chicago.

Literacy Statistics [of America]

...In each type of literacy, 13 percent of adults were at or above Proficient (indicating they possess the skills necessary to perform complex and challenging literacy activities) in 2003. Twenty-two percent of adults were Below Basic (indicating they possess no more than the most simple and concrete literacy skills) in quantitative literacy, compared with 14 percent in prose literacy and 12 percent in document literacy."
Many of the USA ills are directly related to illiteracy. Just a few statistics:
- Literacy is learned. Illiteracy is passed along by parents who cannot read or write.

- One child in four grows up not knowing how to read.

- 43% of adults at Level 1 literacy skills live in poverty compared to only 4% of those at Level 5

- 3 out of 4 food stamp recipients perform in the lowest 2 literacy levels

- 90% of welfare recipients are high school dropouts

- 16 to 19 year old girls at the poverty level and below, with below average skills, are 6 times more likely to have out-of-wedlock children than their reading counterparts.

- Low literary costs $73 million per year in terms of direct health care costs. A recent study by Pfizer put the cost much higher.

The 9/11 Terror of 2001 changed the life of Mr. Barack Obama forever.

WASHINGTON (AP) -- On Sept. 11, 2001, Barack Obama was driving to a state legislative hearing in Chicago when he heard the first sketchy reports of a plane hitting the World Trade Center on his car radio. The 40-year-old state senator spent the afternoon in his law office watching "nightmare images" of destruction and grief unfold on TV.

Within days, he'd issued a statement about what the nation should do next.

Or, almost conversely, the fate of Mr. Osama bin Laden was decided on September 11, 2001, since Mr. Obama was driving to a state legislative hearing in Chicago when he heard the first sketchy reports of a plane hitting the World Trade Center on his car radio.

Outwardly, any combination of incidents is used by the God for His scenario, so awfully.

But, if in order for the first African American President to be realized the God used the 9/11 Terror of 2001 and Mr. Osama bin Laden, what could we comment on the fates of the two persons: Mr. Barack Obama and Mr. Osama bin Laden?

Yet, even if a single victim involved in the War on Terror in this decade, whether in New York, Washington DC, Afghanistan, Iraq, London, Madrid, Bali, etc., made an objection against this holy scenario, the God would not miss it. An answer must be given.


Mar 5:5 And always, night and day, he was in the mountains, and in the tombs, crying, and cutting himself with stones.

Mar 5:6 But when he saw Jesus afar off, he ran and worshipped him,

Mar 5:7 And cried with a loud voice, and said, What have I to do with thee, Jesus, thou Son of the most high God? I adjure thee by God, that thou torment me not.

It is known that many buildings had reportedly collapsed or sustained damage in this suicide car bombing and that rescue workers are currently working at the scene of this bomb explosion. The Pakistani town of Kohat is located to the south-west of the Pakistani city of Peshawar and is based near Pakistani Taliban strongholds, which are located within the lawless tribal areas of the country. This attack comes only a day after yet another suicide car bombing killed 19 people and wounded more than 40 others in the Pakistani town of Lakki Marwat. The Kohat police spokesman, Fazal Naeem, later confirmed to local reporters that women and children were reportedly amongst those killed in this suicide bomb explosion. It is known that Pakistan's Interior Minister, Rehman Malik, later condemned this suicide car bomb attack, in a political statement that he made shortly afterwards. Correspondents within the area are also currently claiming that the Pakistani Taliban are once again back in business, with regards to their suicide attacks on military and civilian targets across the entire nation, despite a lull in such attacks during the recent Pakistan floods, which have affected a large proportion of the country.[

25 September:- Unidentified militants torched 3 NATO containers within the Kalat district of the Balochistan Province in south-western Pakistan, which were apparently carrying supplies to foreign forces within neighbouring Afghanistan.[468]

26 September:- Unidentified militants killed a driver and torched around 4 NATO oil tankers within the Kalat district of Pakistan's south-western Balochistan Province, which were carrying fuel supplies to foreign forces within neighbouring Afghanistan.

1 October:- Unidentified militants killed 3 people and injured 5 others, as they torched around 40 NATO tankers near to the Shikarpur district of the Sindh province, which were carrying supplies to foreign forces in neighboring Afghanistan.[470]

3 October:- Unidentified militants killed 3 people and injured 8 others, as they torched more than 20 NATO tankers near to Islamabad, which were carrying fuel to foreign forces fighting within neighboring Afghanistan.[

9 October:- Unidentified militants, in south-western Pakistan, attacked and torched 30 NATO oil tankers, which were carrying fuel to foreign forces in neighbouring Afghanistan. No details surrounding the amount of casualties sustained, were apparently specified from this militant attack.

19 October:- Unidentified militants attacked and torched 2 NATO vehicles in the town of Dasht Bado, which is located in Pakistan's south-western Balochistan Province. No casualties were reported in this militant attack.

December 8:- At least 19 people were killed and 25 others injured, after a suicide bomber detonated his explosives at a bus terminal in the main bazaar within the Pakistani town of Kohat, which is located in north-western Pakistan. It was later claimed by a police spokesman that the suicide bomber had approached the door of a bus, to which he had then set off his explosives. The bus was apparently carrying passengers to the nearby Orakzai Agency and it is known that many of those killed in this suicide blast were on board the bus itself. Of those 25 injured, it is known that some of them are seriously wounded and it has been reported that many shops within the nearby market were also damaged in this explosion. The remains of a boy suicide bomber, aged between 15-16 were later discovered, as the severed head and legs were found, according to Dilawar Bangash, the Kohat police chief for the local area. The Pakistani town of Kohat is located close to the Afghan-Pakistan border, where the Pakistani Taliban have a strong regional presence. These militant groups have carried out scores of suicide bomb attacks recently, despite Pakistan Army offensives against their strongholds within this particular region of the country. The banned radical Islamist group, Lashkar-e-Jhangvi, later claimed responsibility for this suicide attack within this particular town of Kohat, in north-western Pakistan.

December 25:- At least 47 people were killed and over 100 others injured, after a female suicide bomber detonated her explosives in a large crowd of people displaced by fighting, who were collecting food at a distribution centre of the World Food Programme in the Pakistani town of Khar, which is located within the Bajaur tribal region, of north-western Pakistan.


January 12:- At least 17 people were killed and more than 20 others injured, after a suicide car-bomber rammed his explosive-laden vehicle into a heavily fortified police station in the Bannu district, of north-western Pakistan. It was later confirmed, presumably by eyewitnesses that a Toyota Stout had apparently been used to conduct this suicide attack upon the Merian police station. There were also witness reports who had claimed that parts of the building to this police station, as well as a nearby mosque inside the compound were known to have collapsed due to the force of this suicide car bomb explosion. Witnesses reportedly stated that the sheer force of this suicide car-bomb explosion apparently also plunged the local area into darkness, as the blast damaged electricity lines within this area of the district. It was also established that the car bomber had specifically targeted the outer wall of the police station, which was consequently based within a densely populated area of the district. Reports have suggested that more than 50 police officers were inside the police complex at the time of this suicide attack, with local reports suggesting that all those killed were Frontier Corps officials, who act as a federal paramilitary police force within the country. This particular police station that was targeted, is known to be based near to the Janikhel tribal area, which is known to act as a buffer zone to the militancy-infested North Waziristan tribal region of north-western Pakistan. This suicide car bombing occurred as U.S Vice-President, Joe Biden arrived in Islamabad whilst denying that the United States had imposed a war on terror on Pakistan. The Tehrik-i-Taliban Pakistan later claimed responsibility for this suicide car-bomb attack, whilst threatening that such attacks would continue, unless drone attacks were halted against their Al Qaeda and Pakistani Taliban affiliated militant networks and sanctuaries, located most especially within the highly volatile North Waziristan tribal region, which is located on the Afghan-Pakistan border, of north-western Pakistan.[501]

25 January At least thirteen people are killed while 70 others injured in a suicide bomb explosion in a mourning procession of Hazrat Imam Hussain near its concluding point at Kerbala Gamay Shah at Bhat Gate in Lahore[502]and few minutes after Lahore blast, A suicide bomber rammed his explosive-laden motorbike into a police van at Malir 15 area of Karachi, killing at least three people while 5 people were injured.[503]

08 March A car-bomb at a compressed natural gas filling station in Faisalabad on Tuesday killed 20 people and wounded more than 100, Regional Police Officer (RPO) Faisalabad, Aftab Cheema said. The blast set off gas cylinders at the station and the explosion destroyed or severely damaged nearby buildings and numerous vehicles. "An explosive-laden car was parked at the CNG station," police official told reporters. Aftab Cheema said 20 people had been killed and more than 100 wounded.[504]

31 March An unsuccessful suicide bombing assassination attempt on Fazlur Rehman, the chief of Pakistan's Jamiat-e-Ulema-Islam political party, in Swabi killed 10 people and left another 20 injured.[505]
[edit]April - June 2011

April 01 A second assassination attempt on Fazlur Rehman occured, this time in the city of Charsadda. At least 13 people were killed and more than 31 injured as a suicide bomber blew himself up next to the leader’s convoy vehicle.[506]

April 03 Over 50 people were killed and 120 wounded when two suicide bombers detonated explosives at a Sufi shrine in Dera Ghazi Khan, Punjab.
Main article: April 2011 Dera Ghazi Khan bombings

April 05 A suicide attack at a market in Lower Dir, Khyber Pakhtunkhwa killed seven people including a local anti-Taliban leader and his son.[507]

Indeed, Pakistan looks like a place for real war on terror.

SECTION II: Heroes of Pakistan

Logic looks like this: India is threatening Pakistan. So, Pakistan needs strategically friendly hinterland in its west, namely in Afghanistan. If Taliban and AlQaeda control Afghanistan in a strategically friendly manner for Pakistan, they must be helped. What counts is not a global war between terrorists and the U.S., the U.K., and their allies, but a local war against India.

However, this thinking is very dangerous not only for the world but also for Pakistan.

Pakistan needs to rethink its priorities, be wiser after OBL takeout

MAK Lodhi
Wednesday, May 04, 2011

Considering the last decade in the given milieu it wouldn’t be wrong to say that the US support in fight against terror has been a great blessing for Pakistan. Without the world support, Pakistan might have succumbed to such a powerful dark forces. Designs of Osama bin Laden and his cohorts were clear after their defeat in Afghanistan.

They wanted to weaken Pakistan, intimidate its public and then take over it in collusion with forces that can’t ever think of ruling Pakistan through democratic process. What if Pakistan had succumbed to their pressure and if they had acquired Pakistan’s nuclear weapons
Osama’s hiding and subsequent killing in Pakistan once again shows that Pakistan must explore solution of problems through peaceful means. Strategic depth in Afghanistan is often said to be the reason for being soft on militants but Pakistan can keep its western neighbourhood friendly through goodwill gestures. It should not be wary of a pro-India government in Kabul and their better relationship. If Pakistan remained unharmed during pro-Soviet Afghanistan for decades it cannot be harmed by India’s presence in that country. It should instead focus on its development and progress.
Pakistan is the only country in the world where killers of a governor or federal minister are openly and publicly hailed as heroes.

Anyone who supports the wrongdoer should also be labelled in the same bracket. This must be done at the conceptual level so that the nation becomes a tolerant and peace-loving society once again. Pakistan should, therefore, go fast and eliminate all types of terror dens and pockets within its territory whether they are in North Waziristan or anywhere else. It should not even rely on the US intelligence in hitting targets. Rather, Pakistani forces should take the lead and cleanse its badlands before the US sends in drones. It’s in the national interest of Pakistan and its people. It is time to erase the stigma that has shamed every Pakistani everywhere in the world.

SECTION III: Overseas Pakistanis

Very many Pakistanis are working in foreign countries to send money back to families in Pakistan. It is estimated that the amount remitted annually reaches US$8 billion in total.

Overseas Pakistanis

Total population: 7,000,000+
Approximately 4% of the Pakistani population.

Regions with significant populations

United Kingdom: 1,200,000
Saudi Arabia: 1,200,000
United Arab Emirates: 1,100,000
United States: 700,000
Canada: 300,000
Kuwait: 100,000
Italy: 100,000
Oman: 85,000
Greece: 80,000
France: 60,000
Germany: 53,668
Qatar: 52,000
Spain: 47,000[1]
Bahrain: 45,500
Netherlands: 40,000
Germany: 35,080
Denmark: 21,152
Norway: 30,161
Libya: 30,000
Australia: 20,000
Hong Kong: 20,000
Belgium: 14,500
Ireland: 12,500

Iran: 11,500
Turkey: 10,000
Jordan: 8,000
Portugal: 6,000
Sweden: 6,000
New Zealand: 5,000

So many Pakistanis live and work in Western Europe and North America. Their being Muslims does not force them to avoid mingling into the Christianity-based society of the U.K., the U.S., Canada, and so on.

Yet, they avoid moving into India which is expected to economically grow as another China by European and American super-rich people.

Pakistan is indeed a symbol of bare cruelty of regional and religious conflicts in the world, which is being exploited by terror business.

In 2005, the then Pope died in Rome.

In 2005, terror was carried out by AlQaeda in London killing 55 and injuring 1000.

In 2005, Hurricane Katrina rampaged southern states of the U.S., claiming 1000 lives.
In 2005, an M7.9 earthquake occurred in northeast part of Pakistan, killing 90,000 and injuring 100,000.

In 2005, AlQaeda started to build a mighty compound in Abbottabad, Pakistan.

Indeed, it looks like a new sub-era started in 2005, since the great Sumatra Earthquake and the Indian Ocean Tsunami had already occurred in December, 2004.

In 2011, an M9.0 earthquake and great tsunamis attacked northeast Honshu of Japan, taking 26,000 lives and leading to the Fukushuima nuclear reactor accidents.

In 2011, Osama bin Laden was taken on by American special troops in Abbottabad, Pakistan.

Truly, a new sub-era looks like starting in 2011.

Osama's Case

Who would believe that he would not be killed eventually by US military forces or CIA agents if he attacked New York and Washington DC to kill thousands of Americans while being driven by hate for the US, the US Government, or US rich men?

But one Arab rich man called Osama bin Laden believed that he could win or survive a terror war against the US.  Why did he think that he could live long while making the US his fatal enemy?

Put simply I think he had been brainwashed by somebody with a religious trick, but Osama might have come to a right sense 10 years after the 9/11 Terror when he was taken on in Pakistan by special US troops.  Anyway at the time he loved living long more than a bloody war against the US.

Timeline: Osama bin Laden, over the years
By the CNN Wire Staff
May 2, 2011 -- Updated 1511 GMT (2311 HKT)
* August 14, 2001 -- Bil Laden's last statement prior to 9/11 attacks is given to Al Rai Al Aam newspaper.

* September 2001 -- Four U.S. commercial aircraft are hijacked and then crashed in New York, Washington and Pennsylvania, leading to the deaths of more than 3,000 people. Soon thereafter, the U.S. government names bin Laden as a prime suspect.
2001: Bin Laden wanted dead or alive Video

* November 2001 -- U.S. forces drop leaflets in Afghanistan offering a $25 million bounty for bin Laden.

* December 1, 2001 -- Hazarat Ali, security commander for Jalalabad, reports there was a bin Laden sighting on November 27 in the Tora Bora region. Hundreds of Afghan fighters with American and British Special Forces head to that area to launch a major assault.

* December 25, 2001 -- The Pakistan Observer publishes details of bin Laden's funeral. On the front page, the newspaper reports that an unnamed Taliban leader said bin Laden "had a peaceful natural death in mid-December in the vicinity" of the Tora Bora mountains. The report says that his death was the result of a "serious lung complication." "He was laid to rest honorably in his last abode" in a grave prepared according to the beliefs of the fundamentalist Wahhabi sect of Islam to which the Qaeda leader belonged, the report says.

* December 27, 2001 -- Afghan officials report that bin Laden is in Pakistan, along with al Qaeda sympathizers.

* January 18, 2002 -- Then Pakistani President Pervez Musharraf says that Osama bin Laden might have died of kidney failure in Afghanistan after becoming separated from a dialysis machine he had used in recent years.

* February 15, 2002 -- Reports go out to top levels of the U.S. government stating bin Laden survived the U.S. bombing assault on his alleged hideouts. They are vague and lack solid evidence that he could be near Afghan-Pakistan border, such as sightings by witnesses or interception of radio transmissions with his voice.

* March 9, 2002 -- A Saudi-owned publication quotes one of bin Laden's wives. The woman, identified only as A.S., said she "feels deep down that he's still alive and that the whole world would have known if he had been killed. Osama's death cannot be hidden."

* May 17, 2002 -- A Saudi-owned newspaper publishes quotes from fugitive Taliban leader, Mullah Mohammed Omar in which he states, "Sheikh Osama is still alive, praise God, and this is causing anguish to (U.S. President George W.) Bush who promised his people to kill Osama, not knowing that lives are in the hands of God."

* June 12, 2002 -- A Russian newspaper publishes what it claims is an interview with Omar. The ousted Taliban leader states that bin Laden is alive in Afghanistan. "Osama helped us during the war with the Russians, he would not leave us now," the newspaper quotes Omar as saying. "The Holy War is only just beginning. The fire from this war will reach America, and it will burn the capital that launched an unjust attack on Muslims."

* July 2002 -- Abdel-Bari Atwan, editor of the London-based Al-Quds Al Arabi newspaper, says the al-Qaeda leader is in good health, but had been wounded in an attack on his base in Afghanistan last December. Atwan says that Bin Laden's followers had told him that he would not make more video statements until his group launches another attack on the United States.

* March 10, 2005 -- Muslim clerics in Spain issue what they called the world's first fatwa, or Islamic edict, against Osama bin Laden. They called him an apostate and urged others of their faith to denounce him. The ruling is issued by the Islamic Commission of Spain, the main body representing the country's Muslim community.

* October 2009 -- The book, "Growing Up bin Laden: Osama's Wife and Son Take Us Inside Their Secret World," written by Najwa and Omar bin Laden is published.

* December 2009 -- A U.S. government official admits a "lack of intelligence" on bin Laden's whereabouts, noting he could be in Afghanistan or Pakistan. Defense Secretary Robert Gates tells ABC that "it's been years" since there was good intelligence on the al Qaeda leader's location.

* January 29, 2010 -- A man thought to be bin Laden is heard on two audiotapes, released in the span of a week. On the first, he claims responsibility for the alleged Christmas Day attempt by Nigerian national Umar Farouk AbdulMuttallab to blow up a Northwest Airlines plane as it neared Detroit, Michigan, from Amsterdam in the Netherlands.
On another tape -- aired days later, also on Al-Jazeera -- a similar voice blames the United States and other industrialized nations for causing climate change.

* March 2010: An audiotape purportedly from bin Laden hints at retaliation if alleged 9/11 mastermind Khaled Sheikh Mohammed is executed in the United States.

* October 2010: A message from someone thought to be bin Laden appears on jihadist forums urging Muslims to help people suffering from famine, floods, a lack of clean water and the effects of climate change. At the time, a U.S. official says that bin Laden has been in communication with al Qaeda affiliate within Pakistan and beyond, encouraging them to take more military actions.
Weeks later, a speaker in an audiotape -- purportedly bin Laden -- warns France to get its troops out of Afghanistan and not to oppress Muslims at home. "As you kill us, we will be killed," the voice says. "As you imprison us, you will be imprisoned."

* August 2010: U.S. President Barack Obama is briefed on a "possible lead" about the location of bin Laden. Obama said nine months later that intelligence agents pressed to get more information in the subsequent months.

* January 2011: A speaker claiming to be bin Laden warns French troops to leave Afghanistan -- or else two French journalists abducted by militants there could be killed. The man warns France that its alliance with the United States could prove costly.

* April 2011: President Obama said he believes that there is by then enough credible intelligence about the terrorist leader's whereabouts, setting in motion the military operations.

* May 1, 2011: "A small team of Americans" -- later identified as U.S. Navy SEALS -- engage in a firefight in Abbotabad, Pakistan, killing bin Laden in the process, according to Obama. The U.S. troops, none of whom are harmed in the operation, carry out the al Qaeda leader's body.

One doubt is that the Bush Administration was very reluctant to capture or kill, for real,  Osama bin Laden, since when a new President, namely Barack Obama, took office in the White House he could easily get a clue to whereabouts of Obama in Pakistan.  If President Mr. W. Bush had been really unwilling to pursue Osama bin Laden for any reasons, it can be as mysterious and dangerous as the JFK assassination in 1963.

Though bin Laden was pursued throughout the George W. Bush administration, President Obama renewed the effort on June 2, 2009, when he signed a memo to CIA Director Leon Panetta ordering a “detailed operation plan” for finding and capturing bin Laden. 
More than a year later, what Obama described as a “possible lead” came in. Senior administration officials said they had been tracking an Al Qaeda courier in bin Laden’s inner circle. Two years ago, the U.S. determined the areas in Pakistan where he operated. By August, they had determined the exact location in Abbottabad, Pakistan -- where bin Laden was apparently hiding out in a sprawling compound on the outskirts of town.

One U.S. official said the compound was built over a six-year period. The intelligence community, led by the CIA, concluded it was custom-built to house someone of bin Laden’s stature. It was enclosed by a high wall topped with barbed wire, and protected by two security gates.

Officials said that by February, they determined they would pursue the compound. This touched off a series of high-level meetings to develop a course of action.

According to one senior administration official, the president convened at least nine meetings with his top national security leaders. Those advisers met formally another five times, in addition to countless briefings among the National Security Council, CIA, Pentagon and Joint Chiefs of Staff. The president was actively involved at all levels, the official said.

Let's check the timeline from this viewpoint again:
September 11, 2001 - Three hijacked planes crash into major US landmarks, destroying New York's World Trade Center and plunging into the Pentagon. A fourth hijacked plane crashes in Pennsylvania. Nearly 3,000 people are killed. In a video released later, bin Laden says the collapse of the towers exceeded al Qaeda's expectations.

September 17, 2001 - US President George W Bush says bin Laden is "Wanted: Dead or Alive".

October 7, 2001 - United States attacks Taliban-ruled Afghanistan, host to bin Laden and al Qaeda.

November 2001 - Afghanistan's Taliban rulers are ousted.

December 6, 2001 - Anti-Taliban forces capture bin Laden's main base in Tora Bora mountains of eastern Afghanistan. Bin Laden evades capture.

September 10, 2002 - Al Jazeera broadcasts what it says is the voice of bin Laden praising the 9/11 hijackers as men who "changed the course of history".

November 2002 - Al Qaeda claims responsibility for suicide car bombs in Kenya that blew up the Mombasa Paradise resort hotel, popular with Israelis, killing 15 people and wounding 80.

October 2004 - Bin Laden bursts into US election campaign in his first videotaped message in over a year to deride Bush.

September 2006 - Bush vows: "America will find you."

September 2007 - Bin Laden issues first new video for nearly three years, telling US it is vulnerable despite its power.

May 18, 2008 - Bin Laden urges Muslims to break the Israeli-led blockade of the Hamas-controlled Gaza Strip, and fight Arab governments that deal with Israel.

January 24, 2010 - Bin Laden claims responsibility for the failed December 25 bombing of a US-bound plane in an audio tape and vows to continue attacks on the United States.

March 25, 2010 - Bin Laden says al Qaeda will kill any Americans it takes prisoner if accused September 11 planner Khalid Sheikh Mohammed, held by United States, is executed, according to an audiotape aired on al Jazeera.

January 21, 2011 - Bin Laden says in an audio recording that the release of French hostages held in Niger by al Qaeda depends on France's soldiers leaving Muslim lands.

May 2, 2011 - Bin Laden is killed in Abbottabad, 60 km (35 miles) north of the Pakistani capital Islamabad.

May 6, 2011 - Al Qaeda confirms bin Laden's death in an Internet message and vows not to abandon armed struggle. It vows revenge on the United States and allies, and says bin Laden's death will be a curse "that chases the Americans and their agents", according to the SITE monitoring service.
Indeed, Osama seems to have wanted the US Republican Party to win in the 2004 and 2008 Presidential Elections, implying in his messages that only a hardliner and hawkish Republican President could match him in the War on Terror.  Bin Laden even gave a great sense of alert to American Judaists so that they would support Republicans.    He virtually recommended Mr. Bush in 2004 and Mr. McCain in 2008, didn't he?

Nuclear Energy/Weapons Issue of Pakistan (and India)

Pakistan is a country where Osama bin Laden and nuclear weapons have co-existed.

Vol. 0, Issue 417, October 16, 2009\
Terrorists Close in on Nukes
Pakistan's Nuclear Arsenal in Jeopardy, US Special Forces on Standby

Less than six months ago, DEBKA-Net-Weekly military sources revealed in its 396 issue of May 15 that terrorists had come within reach of Pakistan's nuclear weapons. They confirmed the Indian prime minister Manmohan Singh assertion in a conversation at the time with President Barack Obama:
"The (Pakistani) nuclear weapons and the missiles are already partly in the hands of the Muslim extremists... There is no longer any way to prevent them from taking control."
He referred to two locations as keys to Pakistan's nuclear and missile arsenals: Kohat and the Wah Cantonment Pakistani Ordnance Complex in the city of Kamra - both in the North West Frontier Province (NWFP).

Its neighboring country India is also not shy for nuclear issues.

Indian Nuclear Facilities Map 
Missile test site. 
Uranium mining area. 
Center for Advanced Technology. Development of laser enrichment technology. 
Prithvi missile storage facility. 
Indira Gandhi Atomic Research Center. Site of Fast Breeder Test Reactor and plutonium extraction plants. Also the location of Madras 1 and 2 nuclear power reactions, which can produce plutonium for nuclear weapons. 
Kakrapar 1 and 2 nuclear power reactors are not subject to International Atomic Energy Agency inspection and therefore available to produce weapons-grade plutonium. 
Narora 1 and 2 nuclear power reactors are not subject to International Atomic Energy Agency inspection and therefore available to produce weapons-grade plutonium. 
Site of the first Indian nuclear detonation on May 18, 1974. This bomb was exploded 100 meters beneath the surface. Used again during the testing in 1998. 
Pilot-scale uranium enrichment plant. 
Large plutonium extraction plant presumed to support nuclear weapons program. Two U.S. supplied electric power reactors under IAEA inspection. 
Babha Atomic Research Center. The possible site of a weapons program including plutonium production using Dhruva and Cirus research reactors, a plutonium extraction plant and a pilot-scale uranium enrichment plant.
In addition there is always complexity behind nuclear matters internationally:
China Delays The Nuclear Threat 
Russia had earlier made it very difficult for North Korea to obtain Russian warhead tech. In the past Russia has allowed older ballistic missile tech to be sold to North Korea but is not allowing any nuclear warhead stuff out. The same with technical assistance from Pakistan, which was helped by China to develop its nuclear warhead equipped missiles. The Chinese have apparently persuaded the Pakistanis to rebuff North Korean offers to buy warhead tech. For North Korea the biggest obstacle to having a useable nuclear weapon is a reliable warhead design. Testing such a design without actually firing a live nuke into the ocean requires another bunch of tech (and high-performance computers) that North Korea does not have.

Luk 5:4 Now when he had left speaking, he said unto Simon, Launch out into the deep, and let down your nets for a draught.

Luk 5:5 And Simon answering said unto him, Master, we have toiled all the night, and have taken nothing: nevertheless at thy word I will let down the net.

Luk 5:6 And when they had this done, they inclosed a great multitude of fishes: and their net brake.
