Europe and Japan turn cold shoulder to U.S. plea for bank bailouts

The German chancellor, Angela Merkel, also took the opportunity to sharply criticize the United States and Britain for opposing German attempts to put greater regulation, or at least reviews, of the financial sector on the international agenda last year, when she was chairing the Group of 7 industrialized nations.

"Everyone who produces a real product knows what it looks like and what standards it is up to," said Merkel, who was traveling in Austria. "One also needs to know with a financial product what's involved. Otherwise, these sorts of things happen that we then all have to pay for."

Pakistan probes mystery of US Marines' steel boxes in Marriott

Pakistani authorities are trying to "solve the riddle" of US Marines and their mysterious steel cases that were shifted to the Marriott Hotel four days before it was razed in the worst terrorist attack in the federal capital, a media report on Tuesday said.

According to an official source, the authorities were told that mysterious activity of the US Marines took place around midnight on Sep 16.

"Already, the government has got information that several rooms on the fourth floor of the Marriott were in permanent use of the US authorities. Three of these rooms were said to be inter-connected and contained some intelligence equipment and other material allegedly used for espionage," the newspaper said.

Witnessed by many, including a PPP MNA and his friends, a US embassy truckload of steel boxes was unloaded and shifted inside the Marriott Hotel on Sep 16 midnight only after Mullen had met Prime Minister Yousuf Raza Gilani and others in Islamabad and had already left the country.

TVNL Comment: Now, THAT'LL scare the hell out of George Bush for sure!

'Anti-Americanism' in Australia

The presidency of George W. Bush has elevated anti-Americanism to a global sport more popular in some quarters than World Cup Football. The end of the Cold War, the emergence, at least temporarily, of the United States as the world's 'hyper-power', and Bush's unfortunate first-term tendency to act unilaterally and then boast about it have inspired many to sound off about how much they hate America.

Secondly, 'some of what appears to be anti-American sentiment in the world today is really a hostility to the ideology, policies, conduct and discourse of the present Bush Administration. And of course that hostility is shared by tens of millions of Americans.'

Supreme Court’s Global Influence Is Waning

Judges around the world have long looked to the decisions of the United States Supreme Court for guidance, citing and often following them in hundreds of their own rulings since the Second World War.

But now American legal influence is waning. Even as a debate continues in the court over whether its decisions should ever cite foreign law, a diminishing number of foreign courts seem to pay attention to the writings of American justices.
