Hello everyone,

Once again, suspected Taliban militants have struck with deadly force: this time in Rawalpindi outside a bank and at a police roadblack near Lahore.

The Pakistani government's fight against Taliban insurgents in key Pakistani regions continues to take its toll on the streets of the country.

We are live in Islamabad for the latest.

Also today, what happens next in Afghanistan, after the election commission there canceled the second round run-off and declared incumbent Hamid Karzai president?

Over the week-end, Karzai's challenger, Abdullah Abdullah, pulled out of the race, saying conditions were not in place to ensure the vote would be transparent and fair.

We will bring you a live report from Kabul. Later in the show, we'll ask what might come next for Afghanistan as Karzai is awarded another term. How will this affect U.S. military plans? What shape will the new government take? Will Karzai ne viewed as a legitimate leader?

Also today, Wall Street is on another high. This time, better than expected Ford results and some economic numbers are making investors happy. After last Friday's bruising session, it's all smiles at the NYSE.

We'll break down the numbers for you.

We are also live in Baghdad, Morocco and Berlin.

See you at the IDesk!

Looking at the past week, one can see how resilient Pakistanis have become. Suffering numerous suicide bomb attacks and wide-spread military action, we are here yet again, still standing. But how long can we sustain ourselves at this current rate of demolition? How many times will we resist smacking the hammer on our own foot? Nowadays we seem to have become the offspring of Glenn Beck and the Republican Party. With a constant denial of the harsh reality and a love for misconstruing and fabricating baseless facts that just aim to maim the United States, we seem to be struggling. And when we struggle, we play the role of a secluded, spoilt child.

The situation in Afghanistan is a combination of several factors.
Similar factors are in Pakistan and in other parts of the world – example Somalia, Yemen
1: The international aspect: The Whaby doctrine-
Defeating this doctrine should be the international goal and not limited to Afghanistan.
Fight again the basic to the worldwide terror treat: the radical Islam Wahaby doctrine
For decades the Wahaby radical Islam doctrine is the curriculum of many madrases (schools).
The majority of the Taliban members and their supporters from the many international terrorist groups attended those schools and seminars.
The radical Islam Wahaby doctrine is preached worldwide in many Mosks.
Without an alternative Islamic peaceful doctrine widely spread to the masses similar conflict will continue to spread worldwide.
The international community should pinpoint peaceful Islamic ideas and help them to emerge widely
2: Local Afghanistan aspects; Those aspects are for the locals to decide.
The international community should have a low profile on those issues.
The culture of powerful tribe's leaders and not a central government is a tradition.
The west type of democracy, a combination of individual's rights, personal responsibility, government responsibility and accountability to the citizens is unknown to the masses.
Parts of the west culture is rejected by the locals
