A taste of another world

We were a diverse bunch dining out at a Chinese restaurant, enough to fill several rows of tables. A few of us had traditional domestic, christmas meals, but most of us actually felt that the reason for dining at a Chinese restaurant… was to eat Chinese.

And we didn’t regret it. I can speak of some authority on Chinese food, having eaten literally hundreds of dishes during my life, and this was one of the best I’ve had. From the very first bite it felt like a taste of another world.

I used to feel food was fairly unimportant, something of a duty, something we all needed to do to not starve to death, but that changed the first couple of years I spent in London. I learned there that a meal, particularly dinner could be an experience. Now, I never feel I’ve actually arrived at a given place before having completed my first dinner. You taste the spices, the spices of life, the sounds and sights of a distant land.

That’s one reason why I prefer exotic food, I guess, exotic anything, really.

Yesterday, what was set to be quite a mundane night became something extraordinary, because the food stimulated more than our buds and stomach. It stimulated our minds and even our soul. We grew during that dinner, and became something more compared to what we had been.

And those choosing the boring, mundane cuisine? They actually turned angry when we told them about our feelings afterwards. They saw in the shadows of our deep, shining eyes, undeniably, that we spoke the truth.

more bullshit from Teflon Tony and loyal sheep

Yet another well-prepared attack on Freedom was initiated by the chief of MI5, Dame Eliza Manningham-Buller recently, backed by Tony Blair (of course) only hours later, not long after the US-election, one might add. United Kingdom continues its downward spiral towards fascism, tyranny and a society even worse than what George Orwell described in his great work «1984».

Sweet Eliza claims, straight-faced that no less than 30 terrorist plots threaten United Kingdom. This is such an incredible and horrible statement, such a bold faced lie that one is forced to wonder what will be next.

It has sent shockwaves through a thoroughly gullible population. Most people believe it. No one or very few raise the obvious questions.

Great Britain has 4.2 million surveillance cameras already, one for every 14 citizen. According to Eliza (claiming MI5 is understaffed) MI5 has 1600 people under surveillance. What's next???

Martial Law or something even worse seems imminent. Perhaps this will be Tony's final- and permanent bid at power. It sure looks that way.

The «War on Terror» has become that War on Freedom Tony, George and those running them and the puppet show in general behind the scenes, envisioned. Clearly a beyond successful campaign.

I have stated and restated this before. Don't believe them. Don't believe in them!!! Resist them with every breath of your being.

NATO’s true face

General James Jones has apologized for yet another episode of trigger-happy NATO-soldiers making their mark on the Southern Kandahar in Afghanistan on Thursday, for yet another case of NATO’s killing of civilians. We witnessed a very strange séance at his press conference.

You see, he isn’t really apologizing, not on behalf of himself and not on behalf of NATO (or «ISAF»). His claim is that it wasn’t really NATO’s fault this time either, but… (drum roll, please) Taliban???

Taliban (bless their rotten souls) is responsible, because they’re seemingly using civilians as living shields. General Jones is claiming this with a straight face, like the excellent actor he is (you deserve your newest medal, Jimmy, that one, too). Taliban is responsible. The fact that NATO, incredibly enough (this yet again according to Jones) in fact fired the actual bullets seems totally subsidiary here. This is the usual tactic used by NATO and United States (and Israel) to retain western public support. Another matter is that survivors after the attack have a totally different story to tell. There were no Taliban soldiers nearby, not a single one, not even absent-without-leave young soldiers from these turban-wearing assholes.

So, what are we talking about here? What are NATO and United States’ motives? What can they be? Do they truly wish to bomb innocent civilians? Is it their intention to blow villages to pieces, and leave heaps of torn-apart bodies? The answer to that question will have to be a resounding yes. This is a deliberate tactic on their part. Clearly. This isn’t about mind-blowing incompetence, but about a strategy developed and refined through decades. We’re not talking about trinkets here, about coincidence and individuals going too far in their zeal «to do the job». Not in Afghanistan, not in Iraq, or in Abu Ghraib, Guantanamo or the World Trade Center or other Pax Americana operations around the world.

We’re talking about Terror.
