Counting coups… and "Lasting Peace".

The following video shows an interview with an Israeli spokesperson, Miri Eisen, by a CNN anchor (sorry, don’t watch CNN so I don’t know who she is).

What Eisen skirts around, repeatedly, is that it isn’t Israel taking the brunt of this, though she makes references to Israeli casualties (no numbers, or course) is that Israel IS targetting civillians and it is killing far more civillians than Israel is going to ever be able to “apologise” for (this, while it is encouraging school-children to write messages of hate on the missiles destined to kill other children).

Meanwhile, our own Stephen Harper refuses to demand a cease-fire and will only settle for “a lasting peace”….. Well, Mr. Harper, what if that “lasting peace” only comes when every last civilian in Lebanoin is dead? Will you be satisfied?

What if that “lasting peace” is never achieved because as more bodies pile up in Lebanon, more angry and dispossessed people are going to take up arms against Israel…. Not to mention take their anger out on the countries who decided to “side” with Israel.”

“Lasting peace”, Mr. Harper, is only achieved by willpower and not by allowing one country to blast the crap out of another while you sit in your office with your head up the ass of Israel and the US.

This is a second try at using WordPress….

My friend Az has been bugging me to try WordPress. I did but, at the time, it didn’t support embedding video. Now, apparently, it does.

Soooo…. we shall see.

Previously, I had transferred my other blog from Blogspot, where I have been happily ensconced for a few years, not. I wasn’t thrilled with that, either. However, perhaps some fiddling will change my mind. Again, we shall see.

Already I am irked, as they don’t have “full” justify…. for aligning text. I know, minor thing to some… to me, text that hangs all ragged on the right side just looks bad….. I shall suggest it. Ackkkk…. and only one text size?! Only one font!??? Bloody ‘eck!

New foal!

My sister, Deannie, raises Paso Fino horses. Her mare just foaled!

“Lionel and I are proud human grandparents of a cute little foal. S/he was born early this morning. Its proud equine parents are Sonrisa de Kennebec X Juan Jose de Favorito. Its colour will change when it’s foal coat sheds. We think it will turn out to be black or a dark. “

More photos and some video will follow as I am off to see him/her tomorrow!
