A Peaceful Religion

obama-1.siSince 9-11, the “war on terror” became the daily mantra for the Washington mafia. The blame for the 9-11 carnage was solely thrown upon the purported perpetrators whom Washington claimed were Muslim terrorists headed by Osama bin Laden. Al Qaeda became the star of the day, taking every blame for terrorist acts. Muslim related terrors continue to expand into Iraq, Libya, Egypt and Syria. All the uprisings and civil unrests can be traced to the fingerprints left behind by Washington. It was the most successful MSM bliz originated from the White House. Whether 9-11 was a Muslim terror event or an inside job is still a question mark as evidences surrounding the attack cast much doubt in the Washington story. Read the rest of this entry »

Fatal Cartoons

sc_2145781bIf a face can launch a thousand ships, what can a cartoon do? In times past, the answer would have been – a thousand laughs. In Paris however, a cartoon is fatal. It caused several deaths and launched a colossal march of some 4 million people. At the same time, it brought together more than 50 world leaders to Paris. In Paris, it is a weapon of mass destruction.

What exactly is a cartoon? Wikipedia defines a cartoon as “a form of two-dimensional illustrated visual art. While the specific definition has changed over time, modern usage refers to a typically non-realistic or semi-realistic drawing or painting intended for satire, caricature, or humor, or to the artistic style of such works.

Rule of Law or Money

judiciary“First come first served” is the motto for those advocating human rights and freedom. There should be no prejudice. Whoever is at the head of a queue gets served first. Race, money, religion and societal ranks should not in anyway subvert this fundamental “rule of law”. This sounds good. The intent of this rule appears at first glance to be fair and just. Just before the launch of a new iPhone gadget, people queued for days to get their hands at an iDiot gadget. The same goes for “Black Friday”, buying a cinema ticket, getting a cab and so on. The concept works most times and helps maintain law and order. This principle is referred to as the “cab rank rule”. Read the rest of this entry »

And Mr Abbott vowed that if a review of Australia’s counter-terrorism measures found that a further strengthening of laws was needed “I’ll be doing more. My job is pretty simple, to try and protect and ensure the community is safe”.

Mr Abbott said that Monis had been “well known” to the Australian Federal Police, spy agency ASIO and the NSW police “but I don’t believe that he was on a terror watch list at this time”.  Read the rest of this entry »
