LOSERS
‘‘Manit won’t quit’’ was more than just a poem. It was a grim reality for Prime Minister Abhisit Vejjajiva. Forced to shuffle his cabinet because of the resignation of Public Health Minister Witthaya Kaewparadai, he was checkmated by his Bhumjaithai ‘‘allies’’. They backed up deputy minister Manit Nopamornbodee, named in a corruption scandal but insistent on staying in the cabinet.

Black swans abound as Year of Tiger shows teeth
If many of us could have turned around the moment we entered 2010 and made obscene gestures at 2009, we would have. After the wreckage of the past 12 months, 2010 has to be a good year, right? Good for governments staving off financial chaos, good for households struggling to stay afloat, good for investors wondering which rules of economics and markets still apply.

Intelligence is key to security
I t is the duty of all public officials to do something whenever a new threat appears, even if there is nothing sensible to be done. If they don’t make a show of solving the problem, the media will punish them severely. So we have had a vigorous US Government response to the recent apprehension of the ‘‘Underpants Bomber’’. Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab was from Nigeria, and he was Muslim.

Johor Baru Chinese Chamber of Commerce president Loh Liam Hiang said the ruling was unfair as people with bigger vehicles were already paying higher road tax. “Those who drive 2.8 litre cars pay more than RM4,000 yearly in road tax,” he said yesterday.

Will failed terror attack be Obama’s 9/11 moment?
Voices stilled WASHINGTON — Was Christmas Day 2009 the same kind of wake-up call for Barack Obama that Sept. 11, 2001, had been for George W. Bush? The near-miss by a passenger flying into Detroit plotting to blow up an American airliner seems to have shocked this president as much as the attacks on the World Trade Center and the Pentagon did the last. Both presidents had had plenty of warnings in the form of prior threats and even incidents.

Iran’s opposition manifesto
Iran’s so-called green movement is not yet a counterrevolution, but recent developments make clear it is heading in that direction. Seven months after the uprising began, an opposition manifesto is finally taking shape, and its sweeping demands would change the face of Iran. Three bold statements calling for reform have been issued since Friday, one by opposition presidential candidate Mir-Hossein Mousavi, one by a group of exiled religious intellectuals and the third by university professors.

WASHINGTON, D.

De kracht van Afghanistan, daar hoor je maar zelden over. Want Afghanistan, dat is oorlog, corruptie, drugshandel en een hele zwakke staat.

Tot je een Afghaan tegenkomt als Sima Samar. De dertig jaar oorlog zie je niet af aan de elegante vrouw die op een druilerige winterochtend aankomt bij het Vredespaleis in Den Haag.
