Obama: ”No ground troops in Libya. Ever. For any reason.”
I can hear it now: ”CIA agents are not technically ‘troops.’” Okay. File that one away with Clinton’s “meaning of is” comment.
And what about the “dozens of British special forces and MI6 intelligence officers”?
If Bush were still in office the media would be having a field day.
Wait! There’s more: “He actually deserved his Nobel prize.”
This would all be somewhat comical if this joker wasn’t actually leading our country.
Sadly I did not have either a camera or my phone with me, so I couldn’t take a photo, but on my bike ride this morning I saw a man cooking a large piece of meat in a way I had never seen before. The meat was hanging from a tree limb on a wire or string, and the man was cooking it with a handheld propane torch. Yay Vietnam. You win.
The title of this post bears no relation to the above photograph. It just sounded right.
Cousteau was born in the Year of the Tiger. So there’s a link. To something equally irrelevant to the title of this post. But still.
You have to remember that no one is controlling these copters – they’re completely autonomous:
Being honest is no means of survival, avoid your inner-feelings like the plague,
This is what it takes to comply with the images this structure will accomodate,
But things aren’t what they seem when they’re partially hidden behind walls of pretence built for peace of mind.
The barriers between us are forever maintained by our acceptance of the roles others choose to define.
In a world of competition life’s portrayed as a contest where we’re forced to live by making gains at others expense,
But no-one’s really gaining when perpetual conflict’s the result of our relationships based on pretence,
We don’t need this cultural cosmetic division it upholds the self-interest on which the system feeds,
A deconditioned consciousness of mutual respect is the only way to cure this cosmetic disease.
Be amazed; be very amazed:

“Japan’s tsunami seems to have succeeded — where years of boycotts, protests and high-seas chases by Western environmentalists had failed — in knocking out a pillar of the nation’s whaling industry. Ayukawahama was one of only four communities in Japan that defiantly carried on whaling as a part of the local culture, even as the rest of the nation lost interest in whale meat.”
