Asia Times US wins early round over Iraq The Iraqi cabinet's approval on Sunday of a draft agreement with Washington on the United States presence in Iraq is a key landmark in the struggle for influence in the country between Iran and the US. Prime Minister Nuri al-Maliki and his allies lost this battle, but they have not lost the war - this showdown takes place in the Iraqi parliament in a week's time. - Sami Moubayed

A pact with the devil Influential Shi'ite leader Muqtada al-Sadr is already threatening fire and brimstone over the Iraqi cabinet's approval of a draft security agreement with the United States. But Muqtada, currently studying in Iran, is in a difficult position: he has to confront the problem that in strategic terms, Tehran subscribes to not attacking US troops as the best way for the Americans to eventually leave. - Pepe Escobar

For more than 18 months, the United States has scrambled to link Iran to covert arms assistance to Iraq's Shi'ite militias. But a US military task force has now found that Iranian-made weapons are less than 1% of the total weapons found in Shi'ite caches, suggesting that weapons are arriving from local and international arms markets rather than an Iran-sponsored smuggling network. - Gareth Porter

While the Kemalist notions of secularism and the separation of mosque and state are taken seriously, at the same time the state provides funds for the building of mosques, keeps the Sunni clergy on the state's payroll and allows school textbooks that teach that being a Sunni Muslim is part and parcel of the Turkish identity.

by Tara McCormack

Georgia's rearguard action in face of Amnesty report

Outside View: Russia's new start -- Part 1 (UPI) -- Russia sees new threats from NATO and the United States, and they see new threats from Russia.

The vessel – three times the size of a US aircraft carrier – was taken 450 miles off the coast of Kenya and well beyond the Gulf of Aden where the pirates have been stalking international shipping.

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"
