Question of the Day
This would effectively create an oil-rich, autonomous Kurdish state on Turkey’s border, strengthening the campaign for a wider Kurdistan.
In August 2007, the leader of PJAK was permitted to visit Washington to seek political and military support from the United States, and according to a 2006 article in the New Yorker, the U.S. military is giving PJAK equipment and training.
The United States is walking a dangerous political tightrope in supporting the Turkish determination to crush the Kurdish separatist movement within Turkey’s borders while simultaneously supporting and fueling a resurgence of Kurdish nationalism in Iraq and Iran.

Nicaragua and abortions
The Associated Press story “Nicaraguan abortion ban proves deadly” (World Briefing, Nov. 27) is misleading and grossly inaccurate.
The facts: In November 2006, with massive support of the people of Nicaragua and their elected representatives, legislation went into effect removing an outdated, phony “therapeutic” abortion exception that was open to abuse and incompatible with modern medical, moral and legal principles.
In the year since the pro-life legislative change went into effect:
1) Maternal deaths declined 23 percent in the first 47 weeks of 2007.
2) These maternal deaths reported by the Ministry of Health of Nicaragua include all kinds of deaths from the beginning of pregnancy until six weeks after delivery (accidents, murders, suicides and non-obstetrical deaths).
