Pakistan was attacked by terrorists over the past five days when eight separate blasts ripped through the country and reminded the world that Islamabad is on the front-lines in the War on Terror.

Bangladesh: Falling into India’s Periphery

Amid the Cold War, Bangladesh came into existence as result of 1971 India-Pakistan war.

Nagaland Unrest: Fate of “Indian Balkans”

The Indian state of Nagaland is poised to once more create a major headache for India if the unrest there doesn’t fully stabilize sometime soon, although this story is almost completely overlooked by the Mainstream Media’s blackout on the topic.
