The world's changing dynamics... By Eschmall

Analysts, observing the changing dynamics in the Middle East and South Asia, say that new vistas for the people of Palestine and Jammu and Kashmir might open up soon.
Following are the major developments that are noteworthy: Benjamin Netanyahu stills leads the western world, dismantling its economic and diplomatic primacy. The end of the war in Afghanistan is in sight. Iran is well on its way towards ending its isolation. Pakistan is on the threshold of an era of progress if the plan for the 'economic corridor' from Kashgar to Gwadar is pursued. The US's plans for Syria and Egypt have turned out to be counterproductive. Indonesia and Malaysia have continued to enjoy unprecedented stability, becoming role models for the Muslim world. The US government's shutdown has led to great resentment against Obama. The US forces captured Latifullah Mehsud, second in command of the TTP, a few days ago. It took many na´ve US soldiers by surprise when they realised that this dreaded militant was being escorted by officials of the Afghan intelligence.
The US forces had earlier refused, on many occasions, to attack TTP camps inside Afghanistan like Kunar and Nuristan where Mullah Fazlullah is enjoying shelter offered by the Kunar province's governor. Soon after the Malala incident (where TTP operatives had come from Afghanistan), the US refused to arrest known militants associated with the attack on her. After Mehsud's arrest, Karzai has unleashed his anger on the US forces in public for their unilateral action.
