the complete loss or absence of hope

  1. I agree. It is now such a mess that I don't think it will be sorted in our lifetimes, without WW3 - God forbid.

  2. I have no words other than I'm thinking of those that lost their lives and their families. XXXX

  3. There's an unconfirmed on GMX that Belgium's AKW Tighane has been evacuated. I can't find anything about this. A report from 2015 that mentions that it is offline due to "thousands of cracks". It's not clear if this evacuation, if there is one, is connected to other events.

  4. No, let us not think like this. Get rid of the politicians as we know them in France, Brussels, England, Holland, Germany, everywhere the world, and the endless rhetoric and never any action.

    1. Those in Brussels who were caught taking lobbyist money to vote against the will of the people were just the tip of the iceberg. The journalists chose 6 more or less at random and trapped them all. One was from Austria. He got 4 years, but I think it was substituted with an ankle sensor and an early release. The journalists were told it doesn't matter who you pick on, they're pretty well all at it. And so it appears they were.

    2. The politicians do not mind the sacrifice of a few citizens. ISIS are setting up a large camp in Sirte. We sit around as ever, watching. I wonder what would happen if some EU leaders were brought into this carnage.

    3. I wonder what would happen if we cut their wages by 50%.

    4. No. Let's make it 70%. They're all lining their pockets from various sources. A few thousand for a speech here, a few thousand for an appearance there, etcetera.

  5. If only is were that simple, Rachel - not that that would be simple. But then there's this:

    1. JFK warned. Nobody listened. Maybe now it's too late.

    2. Eisenhower warned. Even earlier.

  6. Such a shock. Such a waste of lives. Such grief. Such arrogance of killers.

    1. We don't have the inside information on 9/11, but we do know who announced the crusades, who fired the starting pistol as it were. The US could have gone into Afghanistan and taken their ex-agent Bin Laden out, and left it at that and they would have gained the sympathy and respect of the whole world and today's problems would be minuscule compared to what they are now. But for reasons we can only guess at, unless Dick Cheyney has a road to Damascus event, we shall never know the truth about this whole scenario, how it came about, how it was funded and fueled, and what the end game is.

    2. If this doesn't get us, climate change will.
