The Donald: Crazy or crazy like a fox?

Although from a scientific point of view that most doomsday scenario are mostly unlikely for the near future, there are worldwide signs all over the planet indicating that earth and mankind are now experiencing major changes: a major shift in civilizations is about to happen that started one hundred years ago.

Since the origins of man, many societies have been ruled by religious and spiritual beliefs and, all over the world, for years and years, the Apocalypse, the end of the word has been predicted. It doesn’t take a nuclear physicist or a spiritual leader to predict that one day, this earth is going to die. 

All planets die one day and, when this will happen, if there are still men on earth, they will also die. This will be the end of the world, as we know it but certainly not the end of the universe. New planets are born every day and the universe is still expanding. But what about a possible global disaster that may happen in our days that could means the near extinction of man on earth?

History, science, studies and researches teach us that in the past, entire highly developed populations and civilizations suddenly disappeared from the surface of the planet on behalf of natural, biological disasters and human behaviors. Entire species disappeared from the surface of the planet in a very short time period, even in minutes and all of this, without any warning.

If this happen in the past, why can it not happen today?

Syria

Where are the good guys?

December 21st 2013  | BEIRUT AND CAIRO

WHAT to do when the party you have been backing loses sway?

That is the question facing Western supporters of the Syrian National Coalition. The rise of jihadists and the worsening sectarian strife in Syria is now putting Western backers of the rebel opposition in some kind of a quandary. As the jihadists are gaining in strength, some Western officials are now starting to advocate some form of political re-engagement with Bashar Assad, while others think the only course left is to work with devout Islamists who reject the extremists but who nonetheless refuse to be part of the coalition previously backed by the West. With negotiations forecasted to start on January 22nd, Western governments are still puzzling over which military factions to back on the ground.

The direct cause of this political mess is the actual growth of al-Qaeda affiliates in Syria. The Islamic State of Iraq and al-Sham (Greater Syria), known as ISIS, the most ruthless of the groups, has spread across northern and eastern Syria, while another al-Qaeda group, Jabhat al-Nusra, still thrives. This has caused and still is causing alarm in Western capitals and among Syrians who mutter that the extremists may be even worse than a regime that has used fighter jets, barrel-bombs and chemical warfare against civilians. With Russia and Iran doggedly behind him, al-Assad has stood and still is holding firm.

Without any form of structured opposition, with all factions fighting one against the other, al-Assad will maintain power as long as he wants and there is nothing the western world can do about it.

“Recent fighting threatens to plunge South Sudan back into the dark days of its past.”

Barack Obama

Aljazeera | 20.12.2013 à 14h26

South Soudan At ‘precipice’ of civil war

Barack Obama, is now calling for an immediate end to the fighting in South Sudan, warning the country stands at the “precipice” of civil war.

Obama, who earlier announced he had deployed 45 troops to the violence-wracked country on Wednesday to protect US personnel and interests, warned that “recent fighting threatens to plunge South Sudan back into the dark days of its past”.

“Fighting to settle political scores or to destabilise the government must stop immediately. Inflammatory rhetoric and targeted violence must cease,” the US president added in his statement.

“All sides must listen to the wise counsel of their neighbours, commit to dialogue and take immediate steps to urge calm and support reconciliation. South Sudan’s leaders must recognise that compromise with one’s political enemy is difficult; but recovering from unchecked violence and unleashed hatred will prove much harder.”

Les membres de l’AIEA refusent de renoncer au nucléaire

LE MONDE | 18.12.2013 à 11h07

Les États-Unis, la Grande-Bretagne, la France, la Russie, la Chine et l’Allemagne et l’Iran ont signé, le 24 novembre à Genève, un accord sur le programme nucléaire iranien. Soupçonné d’avoir des visées militaires, Téhéran accepte de limiter son programme en échange d’un allégement des sanctions économiques internationales.

L’accord n’est que transitoire et devra déboucher dans six mois sur un texte définitif, du moins, nous l’espérons.

Le Monde.fr | 20.12.2013 à 12h41

Dans le plus jeune État du monde, le Soudan du Sud, la guerre menace à nouveau. Cette fois, il n’est plus question de tensions avec Khartoum, dont le Soudan du Sud s’est séparé en juillet 2011 après plus de deux décennies de conflit (1983-2005), mais d’une possible guerre civile sudiste qui a déjà fait plusieurs centaines de morts à Juba, la capitale.

UNITY_by_ekud

Ye know how to interpret the face of the earth and the heaven; but how is it that ye know not how to interpret this time?” 

Probing together the days of the ancient, fathoming the grottoes of the Cro-Magnon of the Great Hunt and the Neanderthal, the dens of the crouching cannibals of the glacial ages, examining the enigmatic chalky, skeletal remains of what have been the chimpanzee-like hunter-pygmies on the open plains of the early Transvaal, we shall be finding clues to the deepest secrets not only of the most extraordinary cultures of both the Orient and the Occident, but also of our own most inward expectations, spontaneous responses, and obsessive fears. Our intention therefore, is to explore the deep, very deep well of the past to ascertain what part of the collective universal knowledge has been already labored and perfected, and what portions have been long ago left unfinished or entirely neglected.

Doing so, we will investigate together the mythological fabric of the “Oriental”, all the traditions of that broad and various, yet essentially unified, major province represented by the philosophical myths and mythological philosophies of India, Southeast Asia, China, and Japan, to which can be joined the earlier yet closely related mythological cosmologies of archaic Mesopotamia and Egypt, as well as the later, remotely, yet essentially comparable systems of the Pre-Columbian Middle America and Peru. Then, we will venture in the mythological world of the “Occidental”, the progressively, ethically oriented mythologies of Zoroastrianism, Judaism, Christianity, and Islam, all of this in relationship and counterplay to the animus of the Greco-Roman pantheons and the Celto-Germanic. And finally, we will be considering the recent contemporary “Creative Mythology”, that most important mythological tradition of the modern world, which can be said to have had its origin with the Greeks, to have come of age in the Renaissance, and to still be flourishing today in the works of those artists, poets, and philosophers of the West for whom the wonder of the world itself, as it is now being analyzed by science, is the ultimate revelation.

Gathering into a single summation all the information, mystical, mythological, historical and scientific materials pointing out to the roots, the true nature of mankind, its origins and all the possible futures of mankind is no child play. Keeping it rational, impartial and unprejudiced is even more difficult. No one, as far as I know, has yet tried to compose into a single picture the realistic image of the fundamental unity and history of mankind. Never before such an undertaking has been attempted before. Gathering from the deep well of the past, I will, demonstrate, once and for all, that we have now reached the final frontier of mankind intellectual absurdity.

Believing in the divine beings will never drive mankind anywhere else than straight into a living hell.

Barack Obama

US president Barack Obama said on Friday he does not foresee a scenario in which he would send US troops to Syria. However, if Syria is found to have used chemical weapons, he will be considering sending lethal aid to Syrian rebels he said, before adding: any additional steps taken by the United States, will be based on the facts on the ground in Syria and what is in the best interests of the American people and US national security. He also stressed out that he would not be pressured prematurely into a deeper intervention into Syria.

A New York Times/CBS News poll released last Tuesday found that 62 percent of Americans believe the United States has no responsibility to do anything about the fighting between Assad’s forces and anti-government rebels confirming my opinion and most certainly Obama’s opinion that the USA does not have any interest or business whatsoever in the Syrian conflict. This is the only reason why Obama has repeatedly shied away from any other than diplomatic US involvement in the Syrian conflict. This is Obama, a lot of hot air, a lot of showmanship and very little if no action.

Yes indeed, Obama will either go down in history has one of the most indecisive or most clever president the United States never had. No matter the judgment of time, his presidency is and will stay one of a lot of hot air and very little action.
