    I straddle two worlds. I am a naturalized American citizen, but being born in Bangladesh, I care about its people a great deal.

    I also think the US and Bangladesh have common cause against Islamist extremism. Unfortunately the Bush admin does not seem to understand that its policies undermine democracy and encourage Islamists.

      quite well. They want Islamists in power where there is no oil since that give them more ammunition to trump up the "Global War on Terror". They don't understand or care that people die, countries are ruined, and regions of the world are set in constant turmoil by their political machinations. To them it's all a big game. Gotta have the bad guys if you wanna be a good guy!! So they create them, or help them into power so they can use them later on.

      If I were a gambler, I would bet you money that the Islamist government of Bangladesh will come into sharp focus in the next presidential election in the US. The Republicans will try to use it, and others, as bogey men to scare people into voting for them. It won't work, the voters are all "scared out", but they will try. Of course, they won't realize that the opposition, aka us, knows and can show that they were supportive of the Islamist takeover. And yes, we will be letting people know that it's all bs. But meanwhile, Bangladesh pays the price. I am so sorry for that. I have traveled in Bangladesh, when it was still part of Pakistan, and it is beautiful country with lovely warm and friendly people.

      The two cousins who run the country convenience store near me are from Bangladesh, and I am going to print out this diary and take it down to them to read. So they know that people are aware of the situation and that they care and are trying to do something about it. Thanks for the diary.
