Hello ! Renxkyoko Iglesias is here again.
I ‘ve been sick and bedridden the past 3 days , and have done nothing but watch TV and read a few blogs, and you’d think I’d have time to post something, but I felt so weak I didn’t even have the energy to think , until today when news on the carnage in Paris happened. This is one topic I can’t let pass without saying anything .
ISIS …….. I know I am not a war hawk … I just want world peace…… but now, I’m taking a hard look at Pres. Obama’s Middle East policy. To be honest, I want Pres. Obama to be more firm now , not to sound too politically correct, , and just call a spade a spade. He placates so much people don’t know whether he’s coming or going.

- I realize it’s not good to say things when a person is angry. Can a person take back hurtful words apologize , then expect everything will be forgotten ? No. That’s why I had to revise this post more than a dozen times, ending up saying nothing. I need to sleep this off .
I follow a blogger who loves to talk about COINCIDENCES. Coincidenceeeeeeee ! ! Anyways, I posted a picture of moi in Paris on my last post, and I also said my Paris tour post wasn’t finished yet, and promised to get it done soon. And then , this horrible incident happened. Coincidenceeeeeeee !
I ‘m still trying to figure out how to move complete files from Pictures to One Drive. Right now, I can only move one picture , one at a time, out of thousands.
Anyway, I wish I could write down what I’m thinking at this very moment. But if I did, I’m sure I’d regret it. My 2 close and dear friends at work are Muslims and they are the nicest people on earth. I go to work tomorrow….. and I’m sure J will be crying to me again. ” Ren, these terrorists are making my life so stressful and scary. ” She came from Afghanistan, and came here to the US to marry her first cousin. She didn’t want to because she had a boyfriend , but marrying her cousin ( her father’s nephew) was the only way to get out of a miserable future. Her father’s being targeted by the Taliban because he works for the Americans, as a clerk. Her story is very colorful and interesting , and worth talking about in the future. Like, one time , her husband told her they’d go shopping for clothes. So , she dressed up and when she came out of the room, her husband staggered back , startled to see her wearing a burqa, all covered from head to foot. .

- I don’t even know how this nasty war started. Bush and his cohorts lied to the Americans . There were no weapons of mass destruction in Iraq, and there were no Iraqis who committed the heinous 9/11. There were no Afghans , either. Classic irony. I admit Saddam Hussein, and the Talibans were nasty people. But they were their country’s problems, not the Americans’. We simply cannot impose our way of life on the Talibans. We wear mini skirts and bikinis, they wear burqas. That’s the way they like it. * shrugs shoulders * Let them be.
I wonder if the US policy will change. News coming out of France are dire. ” Time to raze Raqqa . ” ( capital of ISIS ? … as if they have a country ) The mood right now is the French don’t care anymore about collateral damage. French President Hollande has declared an all out war against ISIS. The more tragic consequence of this is the serious and dangerous wedge that’s been created between non- Muslims and Muslim population . More innocent people wll be killed. I don’t see the end in this vicious circle.
This is why I detest religious Fundamentalists , of any religion. I just watched a video of this ” Christian ” pastor named Steven Swanson who visciously ranted about ROUNDING UP ALL THE HOMOSEXUALS AND KILLING THEM. The virulent rant was uttered at an event organized for Republican presidential aspirants Ted Cruz, Mike Huckabee, and Bobby Jindal. If your a Christian who feels the same way as Pastor Steven Swanson, vote for any of these 3 candidates.
Aaaargh. I’m getting angry again. I better stop here before I say something that will offend my dear , lovely readers. Peace ! ! Peace ! Peace !
Have a lovely day.
