George Galloway too was outspoken. But then he always has been that way inclined. One has to admit; he does take insults, well into his stride! Respect!

Yes, hygiene and cooking on the floor will be anathema for most viewers. But if you were to consider the history & tradition of this region, what we witness here is an embryonic micro-culture taking it’s first faltering steps. Surely they will progress along this learning curve with the help of digital technology.

Iran Nuclear

Two words that silence a dinner table

why Iran should get the bomb

Re: Kenneth N Waltz

“U.S. and Israeli officials have declared that a nuclear-armed Iran is a uniquely terrifying prospect, even an existential threat. In fact, by creating a more durable balance of military power in the Middle East, a nuclear Iran would yield more stability, not less.”

KENNETH N. WALTZ is Senior Research Scholar at the Saltzman Institute of War and Peace Studies.


Champion for Humanity

I mean a real one! Not a cardboard cut-out or a wanna be!

The reforms advocated in these FIVE points (below) are admirable, but doubt very much if ever comes to fruition.

All because we have a caricaturized image of an individual and the nation he represents, hence we are unable to see through the haze we created.

Abbreviated for convenience

1 – Restructuring the United Nations in order to transform this world body to an efficient and fully democratic organization, ….punishment of the aggressors and the murderers of the defenceless people of Gaza.
2- Reforming the current economic structures and setting up a new international economic order
3- Reforming the international political relations based on the promotion of lasting peace and friendship, eradication of arms race
4- Reforming cultural structures, respect for diverse customs and traditions of all nations,
5- Worldwide efforts to protect the environment

Don’t know if one should laugh or cry.  Really! Mr Cameron?

Perhaps there is already a hyena like queue vying for that title.

How many leaders in history have been puppet regimes or viewed another way; how many of yesteryear friends and allies are today’s terrorist.

It’s in the nature of mankind.

Lovely metaphors!

What if love was just genetic glue for coupledom?

Wrote the above as a comment to LOVE; A Mystery Finally Solved [read it]

Btw Ecclectic I did enjoy your post.  Thank you. The last line is lovely “Love is a knowing”

I should also Thank Ecclectic ever so much, for lancing this gargantuan burden that’s been growing on me.  To put into words the thoughts brought on after too many Tequilas and eating cheese late at night.  And for making me put pen to paper, metaphorically speaking of course, and revive my blog abandoned many seasons ago.

That thought begins with; What if….

Let’s take this slowly.  I’m not saying I don’t believe in Love.  Perhaps a love agnostic!

Let’s turn this Rubik’s cube of love upside down and puzzle over it.

Like if you were walking, stop right there and without moving your shoulders take a look at your bum.  Because we take it so much for granted, love that is, and the bum as well!

We could start by saying; Love does not exist and try to prove it that way. But that would be a bit like driving backwards from the conclusion.

In the beginning man meets woman in the nude.  Of course, saves time I suppose! Seriously.

Shamelessly copied here from Cosmos magazine to reinforce my drifting “what if…”

Boy meets girl and the chemistry is explosive. Their eyes lock, their heartbeats race, everyone else in the room just melts away. But far from being some weird, mystical force, sexual attraction is actually quite prosaic.

It’s the product of millions of years of evolution all focussed on one idea: successfully passing your genes on to the next generation. And the whole dating scene is really just people assessing the reproductive potential of prospective mates.

Humans have evolved a plethora of ways to advertise their reproductive value – from chiselled jaws and permanently enlarged mammary glands to complex odours and a raucous sense of humour. The right combination of these features in the right person add together to give you that funny feeling in your stomach we hear so much about.

Good article as articles go!

What if it was just genetics at work?

The glue that bonds the couple and we conveniently give a title: LOVE

How can anyone fall out of love? But we do
