Muhammad & Rugby

You guys probably heard the news by now that MCKK U-16 Rugby Team lost in their Semi-Final game of the Cup Championship to SSBP (Sekolah Sukan Bandar Penawar), the National Sports School. SSBP later became the eventual winners of the 4th BCHB-COBRA Rugby 10s Schools Invitational Tournament after beating SMKYP in the Final.

Our MCKK boys could only watch but took pride of scoring a try against SSBP where no other schoolboys team in this tournament could do. They played their hearts out until the final whistle.

US diplomats protest call-up to Iraq

US dimplomats oppose call-up to Iraq
Roughly 300 US diplomats have protested against the State Department's decision to force Foreign Service officers to take jobs in Iraq.

In the largest diplomatic call-up since Vietnam, the participants objected to the enforced service at the Baghdad embassy as part of the so-called Provincial Reconstruction Teams.

This conscription is a result of a lack of volunteers willing to go to Iraq, and those who refuse service face dismissal. Many diplomats have described it as 'potential death sentence'.

The ethics of sending diplomats against their will has come under scrutiny even though the embassy staff is largely confined to the so-called “Green Zone”.

The President of the American Foreign Service Association (AFSA) John Naland said a recent survey found only 12 percent of the union's membership believed Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice was 'fighting for them.'

Under the new order, 200 to 300 diplomats have been identified as 'prime candidates' to fill 48 vacancies next year. Those notified have 10 days to accept or reject the position. However, should there still be a shortage, diplomats may be ordered to go.

Longtime Bush adviser resigns

Wed, 31 Oct 2007 21:48:23 source pressTV

Karen Hughes, one of George W. Bush's last remaining advisers from his circle of Texas aides, has said she will step down this year.

Her departure follows that of close Bush aides Karl Rove and Dan Bartlett. The three from Texas are widely credited with Bush's rise to the White House.

Announcing Hughes' decision to leave the department in mid-December, Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice said she had accepted the resignation "with a great deal of sadness but also a great deal of happiness for what she has achieved" and with the understanding that she would continue to work on several projects.

Hughes has spent the past two years trying to improve the image of the US abroad, especially in the Middle East.

She was responsible for trying to polish the image of the US overseas in the wake of the Iraq war and the damaging Abu Ghraib prison abuse scandal.

But polls show no improvement in the world's view of the US since she took over. A Pew Research survey earlier said the unpopular Iraq war is a persistent drag on the US image and has helped push favorable opinion of America in Muslim Indonesia, for instance, from 75% in 2000 to 30% last year.
