My home town

This morning I heard the number of people murdered in Montego Bay since the start of the year has risen to 25.

I remember there was point where I use to think I didn't want to move to Kingston because it was way too violent. How long ago that seems.. now I fear going home . So sad , More than anything I want my parents to move, but the question is where? Where in Montego bay is safe? where in Jamaican is safe for that matter. (sigh)

You know the worse part in all of this.. in yesterdays news there was a report about a police man being killed and the first thought that came to mind was that he prob was a corrupt cop that got too greedy with the criminals that he was dealing with.... At what point did my impression of the police force get so low? :S

This the level at which my home town has reached... a point where I cant tell the criminals from the police? But what can one do?

The more I listen to the news of late the more I feel the need for the return of Adams... We are at a point where being a policeman means nothing... they can be attacked and killed like anybody else :S call me naive but I want a police force that criminals fear. I want to know that Police are near untouchable and that the consiquences for attacking them would be dire. Why do I want this you ask? Because I want to know at least that If I need to run to the police for protection then I will be protected... I mean I know they are currupt and that ppl like Adams are cold blooded murderers, but I want to know that my police force is capable of protecting themselves and by extension me....

I may be wrong, but at least in mobay we are fast approaching the point where we must fight fire power with fire power... I can't find it in me to have much remorse for these people... Everyday I hear news from Mobay my heart skips a beat as I wait to hear if i recognize any of the names they call... this is no way to live... no way to live at all....

Lessons (The war on Terror)

As You can probably guess by now I am not a big fan of Bush but last night I stayed up late watching a program on National Geographic recounting the events on September 11. It was a painful reminder that we are now post 9/11 and we are not to forget the lessons the 2,973 souls on that day died to teach us.

Immediately after 9/11 president Bush acted as any leader should have.. I may not like the route he took but being fair to him.. his decisive take no prisoners attitude was Ideally what the The American public.. and I dare say.. the world needed at the time.

After the the attack in Afghanistan he made a declaration about the axis points of Evil... Effectively eliminating diplomacy as an option with many of the US's enemies. Personally I do not appreciate the way Bush is waging this war on Terror (which I now think is essential) and I believe Clinton would have found a way to best balance the use of force with Diplomacy.
What Bush has wrongfully created, is an "Us against the world" outlook. This can never work.. yes a hard line approach is needed but like the Tanqueray add says "Everything in moderation".

After watching the 9/11 events again I felt an anger and a need to lash out against those who carried out this act.. but we need to also be careful not to create more extremist in the process.

As Gen. Rupert Smith pointed out on the daily show last night, "THE ART OF WAR IN THE MODERN WORLD” cannot be based off the use of force only but it requires one to fight on all fronts, such as Diplomacy, PR, Force...... etc., simultaneously.
This is something I doubt Bush realizes.... Oh and do not think I believe he is acting as he does soley for the benefit of the American People. I still think he is also acting in his own self interest as well. For as far as the 2 can work together..... A question that comes to mind, however, is; if it comes to a choice between the 2 what will he do?

Final Report? Well I now believe Bush has generally the right Idea with regards to his war on Terror However I do believe his plans of action are not able to achieve the objective we all need to see.

In closing however I challenge us to never forget 9/11 and to be honest with ourselves... the Americans have done as much and maybe even worse atrocities in its time... they are no saints. We should apply such lessons to all that we do... the actions that we do today may haunt us tomorrow... beware of the monsters we create. And though it may be hard, try to see the big picture there is a time and place for everthing and every action and reaction must be done in moderation.

Jamaica and Homosexuality

There are times when the utterances of my sister are just profound beyond measure
Last night while going to pan I was informed;

"Jamaicans are not Homophobic, we are Homo-Intolerant. No Jamaican is afraid of any homosexual"

Please note these views are not the views of myself or my sister.. but Jamaica is a very interesting place.

20ooo more troops.... hmmmmm

ladies and gentlemen something must be wrong with me. I find myself agreeing with Bush for the first time ever.

The reality of the Iraqi situation is such that America should never have invaded to begin with

But the did and as such they have on their hands a sh*t storm to deal with

It is now the responsibility of the American ppl (who elected this moron to begin with) to deal with the situation at hand. Just pulling out troops after you have screwed a country over is not the way to go.. I point you to what happened to Afghanistan. Look, if you created a monster you need to tame it or else it WILL bite you

Now as for the US policy? I think the US should stop using diplomacy as a last resort.... oh sorry..... they dont use diplomacy at all do they.
Force is needed and soldiers need get what ever resource there is to help them do their Jobs. and so I agree with the 20 thou extra troops.. What I want to see is what they are going to do. They can either help or make the situation worse. Lets hope for the best... oh wait he's in for another 2 yrs isn't he.... DAMN! OK screw that... hush Iraq.

You know in all of this both Syria and Iran can help the Americans greatly in returning order to Iraq however being the 'Axis point' on Satan's Domain on earth the of course will do nothing to help these Saints who only wish to do the lords work by bending the Iraqi ppl over and taking their oil....

Like it or not America will not get anywhere until they can reach an arrangement with both countries... You know the amazing thing The president of Syria, in a BBC interview, announced that he wanted to talk.. but
of course the Bush administration is to (beeeeeeeeep) to do so. Now dont get me wrong the Syrians are going to make sure that they get the better end of the stick in any talks they have With the US. Right now they are sitting pretty quietly helping Palestinians, Lebanese and Iraqi's make life difficult for the Bush and his allies.
The reality is it will come to a point where they realize that they are beating their heads against a wall.... At least Blair seems to begin to realize this... seeing that Bush doesn't really have much off a brain to damage we have to wait for the next election. Once they do and they start talking I believe allot of these 'terrorist groups' will find themselves in trouble....

Reality check:
Then again even as I type this I know I am being an Idealist... I do believe talks are necessary but how effective will they be??? will the world ever find peace?

World Affairs titbits

1) "I plan to emulate the graetest Socialist that ever lived, Jesus Christ"

Those were the words of Hugo Chavez when giving his inauguartion speech... this man is a real thugi-thug

2) So in an interview recently a US diplomat referred to Castro and Chavez as being arsonist..... I know! I know! Doesn't sound like much.. but for a state official/Diplomat to use such strong words on BBC is unusual.... oh wait... My bad Totally forgot the "The Devil was here yesterday" speech... ah well try again US.. no oner and I mean NO ONE can top that speech TUFFFF!!!!!
Those of you who had the privileged of seeing the speech, mark that day as the day the UN saw the wickidess speech it had ever heard.... HYPE!!!

3) Again the the US has done it... WHY THE **** , (calm down )
It turns out that the US unilaterally launched air strikes in Somalia recently. Now, I don't care who you said you were attacking but to violate the sovereignty of a nation and to attack anywhere u please unilaterally is just @#$%^&*#@!!!!!!!!!!
In any case within days of assuming leadership of the UN the new Secretary general has felt the need to speak out against the actions of the almighty F*** the world don't ask me for S**** United States. Of course, he as only succeeded in reminding the world of the impotence of the UN against the awsome might of (beeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeep)

** This titbit has been discontinued as it may offend some readers of the blog**

Ortega is president (raised eyebrow)... my, the world has changed... or has it?

Death ofa dictator

On the 30th day of the 12th month in the year of our Lord 2006 the world rejoiced as man was hung by neck the until dead.

A truly proud moment for the Human race.

I do not dispute that fact that this man committed evil deeds, yet it is clear that that his trial was a mere formality a true mockery of what justice should stand for... Just because the whole world THINKS someone is evil should we do away fair trials.

I would have felt better if he was tried before an international tribunal. At least there the law is followed to the letter (or at least so it seems).

I don't know how I feel about the death penalty, there are times I support it and there are other times I feel its barbaric and it reduces us to the level of those who we wish to kill.

In either case I felt a bit repulsed with the way we all were glad that a human life was snuffed out.... It felt wrong.

I'm Bak?

Lo and Behold, it seems that the powers that be have deemed it fit to return access to the blogosphere to the plebeians. As as result I am back.... at least until they decide to remove my access to the wonderful universe again
