Who Needs Them.


Henri Matisse.

Another lovely day here, blue sky and sunshine, it got very cold during the night and especially between 05.00 and 06.00.

Now it is a gorgeous day, sadly not so in many places such as Japan, Bahrain and Libya.

Horrible listening to news of thousands killed in Japan by the earthquake and the resulting Tsunami.

Now there could be terrible destruction and many more deaths, caused by the lunatic decision to have nuclear reactors in a country which has so many earthquakes.

What made them do this, just thinking about this makes me upset, and I can’t believe that the government decided on this policy despite huge protests by the people. 

In Bahrain the King does not want people demanding a say in their lives and standing up for their human rights.

To maintain his parasitical position he has called in his friends from Saudi Arabia to crush the peaceful demonstrations.

They are killing people in ambulances, they have even killed people in the hospitals and they are stopping doctors treating injured people.

In Libya the brutal dictator, Gaddafi does not want to leave despite the majority of people wanting an end to his 42 years in power.

To achieve this he is killing his fellow Libyans with his mercenary army paid for with the oil wealth that he sees as his own.

While he is waging genocide on the people, governments around the world have been having many meetings and discussions as to what to do to stop him.

They have been talking about this for too long now without taking any action to save lives in Libya.

I now believe they will do nothing, so unless something happens soon a million people could be killed in Benghazi.

One way or another it is the people that are paying the price be it because of misguided decisions like Japan’s nuclear plants or tyrants like the King in Bahrain and Gaddafi killing them.

(Throwing me deep into thoughts lately.)
A safe Thursday for you all.

Such sadness out there...
I mailed your card finally! I know, I know, it will be late. BUT in my defense, I didn't know how much postage it needed. Although you wont get it for several days, I hope it puts a big smile on your face. It made me giggle! Love to you~
