Hello ! Renxkyoko Iglesias here.
I ‘ve been trying to make sense of the upheaval that’s going on in the world. Ukraine, Russia, Syria, Iraq, ISIL, Israel-Palestinian conflict, Ebola, and here in the US, the shooting death of an 18 year old African- American guy by a cop that resulted in almost 2 weeks of street protests, and now, the beheading of an American journalist by ISIL…….. not to mention the catastrophic drought here in California. What else can the world pile up on top of that ? About the drought……. is that significant? You bet it is. California’s agricultural products can feed the world.
I read that European intelligence services had contacted the Assad regime regarding the extremist rebels fighting the Syrian government. Assad’s trade-off was not palatable to the intelligence community then, but today, who knows ? Iran is also paying attention. The White Hoouse just revealed to us that US’s Special Forces were secretly sent to Syria to rescue James Foley and other hostages. It went on smoothly, Sec. of Defense Hagel said. No, it didn’t. The fact is, there was shooting engagement , and several ISIS militants were killed, …only one US soldier was injured, no one died. I’m wondering if Assad secretly allowed this rescue mission, or at the very least, it was a tacit agreement, and he looked the other way. So strange.
British Intelligence is now investigating who that ISIS guy is that beheaded the American journalist. They have pinpointed the source of the man’s accent to be South of London. It’s amazing that different parts of a city have distinct accents, isn’t it ? Well, California accent is different from New York’s. But then, they are separated by 3 time zones. * ponders* This reminds me of 9/11 catastrophe. It happened at around 8:30 AM New York time. In California, it was 5:30 AM . ( I’m assuming you know about 9/11. Otherwise, you’re an alien. ) You’d think who would be watching TV at that hour ?. Well, my mother was already up, turned on the TV on CNN ( as was her habit ), but didn’t pay attention to the news as she was busy preparing breakfast, or whatever it was she was doing that time ( The TV was on Mute ). At 7 AM, she got an overseas call from my aunt ( 10 PM , Philippine time ) ). The conversation was like this… .. ( sans any preamble ) ” Turn on the TV, CNN “…. Huh ? what’s going on ? ” Are you watching it ?” No, but……” ” Are you crazy ? The US had just been attacked, and you don’t know ? ”
So, okay, I know….. this post is totally jumbled…. but that’s how my mind works, or how my thoughts roll.
Anyway, what’s up with the world ?
Heh. And I was supposed to post about my fun vacation in the Philippines. But with all that’s going on in the world, I thought it frivolous to write about insignificant me cavorting on the beach in my teeny weeny polka dot bikini with nary a care , while the world is in a state of raging conflagration.
Well, later, okay ?
PEACE ! !
