Asia Times Pakistan in the grip of a big squeeze A stinging defeat at the hands of the judiciary is just the beginning of President General Pervez Musharraf's problems. The emboldened opposition is after his blood on a number of fronts, including fallout from the army's attack on the radical Lal Masjid (Red Mosque). But it's the United States' threats to go after al-Qaeda and Taliban targets inside Pakistan that will really test Musharraf's grip on power. - Syed Saleem Shahzad

Blair's well-trodden road to Damascus Tony Blair's new role as Middle East envoy promises to be fraught with uncertainty amid ambitious goals and no little skepticism. Nearly a century ago, British General Edmund Allenby carved a swifter, no less difficult legacy from Gaza to Damascus when he snuffed out 600 years of Ottoman rule and established the Palestine Mandate, one that now lies in dust. Will Blair succeed where Allenby's Blitzkrieg-like precedent ultimately failed? - Ronan Thomas

Still, genocide is not inevitable

What they have said about Foreign Press Review
"FPR'ın iki "kötü" özelliği var: 1. Alışkanlık yaratıyor, onsuz yapamaz hale geliyorsunuz; 2. Değeri alındığı değil, arada bir de olsa, alınamadığı vakit anlaşılıyor. Bir de sürekli bir kaygıya yol açıyor; 'Ya bir gün kesilir ve onu hiç alamazsam' duygusuyla sürekli yaşamak kolay değil."

Cengiz Çandar

"... fantastic .... an outstanding and unique service, not just for those who follow Turkey closely, but those who follow international trends and ideas. ... selection of material is some of the best anywhere ... coverage of the Turkish press and Turkish issues is truly unsurpassed .... outstanding and intelligent service"

Graham Fuller

"... extremely useful"
