    If the U.S. and NATO attacked Syria, then World War III would be inevitable. Syria's case is just the beginning of the confrontation involving the West, Russia, and China.
    As has been seen today, Russia and China are very concerned with the attitude of arrogance the United States and the Western allies against Syria and Iran. Barack Obama is taking the role of geopolitical West to trigger a confrontation with Russia and China. Syria and Iran will be its battlefield.

    Russia and China are aware of this event will turn into World War III. This is very dangerous. President Obama and British acts must be stopped. Meanwhile, ICC has become an instrument used by the West to overthrow the regime.

    But I'm sure Russia will not allow the situation in Libya in Syria. Russia and China even vetoed a Security Council resolution of the United Nations. Russia will be the deciding factor in this situation.

    The situation in Syria does look like Libya in June last year. It seems, the Syrian opposition has gained the recognition and the legitimacy from the West and other countries as legal representation for its citizens. Even Syria's opposition to form the military council and began to ask for protection to the international community. They even cut their ties with Western rivals, Iran, Hezbollah, and Hamas in Palestine.

Al Qaeda and Arab Spring

The death of Osama bin Laden on May 2, 2011, did not deter the acts of global terrorism. Even the act of terror is increasingly prevalent as the Revolution of Arab or Arab Spring Spring which began on December 8, 2010 in Tunisia. On May 10, 2012, two powerful bombs exploded in Damascus, the Syrian capital, killing 55 people. The area is a center for the regime of President Bashar al-Assad to deal with anti-government activists and Syria Liberation Army (FSA).
Both sides accuse each other. The opposition said they did not know anything about the bomb. According to them, the bomb was designed by government forces to damage the image of the opposition. The Assad regime claimed the incident was a testament to the confrontation between the government and militant groups backed by foreign powers. According to the government, the armed conflict that has killed 2,600 troops was not pure the violence committed by Syria people.

While both parties (which they should have implemented a ceasefire since 12 April 2012 in accordance with the agreement) were still busy blaming each other, appeared an unknown militant group, al-Nusra Front claiming responsibility for the twin bomb.  Acknowledgment was propagated through the network of video uploaded on May 12, 2012.  Video narration explained the explosion of bombs in retaliation for the attack of government's troops to the rebels for 14 months of the revolution against President al-Assad's rule.

It was said, al-Nusra Front did the military operations in Damascus with its military targets is  the military branch in Palestine and Dawriyat district.

I asked my partner, "BB, what/who is Al Nusra front group?"

He said, "It is a branch of Al-Qaeda emerging in Syria."

"Oh...." I was still measuring his mood and my mood when I kept saying, "Several months ago, Al-Assad's regime claimed the rebel forces in Syria was a group of Al-Qaeda, but no one believed it. What about you? Do you believe it?"

He stared at me for a moment before responding to my question. I returned his gaze. His hands brought my face closer to his face. Because we looked at each other closely, I could see a duck was swimming in the blue-green-brown lake. That was me in his eyes. (Hello mighty arm, what exactly is your eye color?)

For 5-6 seconds, I did not hear his answer to my question. (Two pairs of lips were busy doing their functions whenever they were in this situation: kissing before the discussion. And I really hoped an opening kiss would end well with a closing kiss, too. Mmmmmwah...) 

"No, honey. That's just an excuse to justify Al-Assad's regime to hit the demonstrators with heavy weapons. They have killed more than 11 thousand people."

"No?"

"No."

For a glimpse, I looked again to the lake. I saw a duck was still swimming peacefully on the surface of blue-green-brown-lake, but suddenly it plunged its head into the colorful lake. I was surprised at its behavior, "Would you drown?"

"But late Gaddafi had said the same thing"

"Yeah?"

"Yeah. And it turns out, Gaddafi's statement is correct." I said as I tried to call back my memories of Gaddafi's face. ( Hello Salamoualaykoum Warahmatoulah Wabarakatouh, colonel.... How are you? Do you know that Berlusconi and Sarkozy are now getting their karma? )

"Oh," he replied "oh" with a soft voice. Or he was just being polite. Just an "oh" small talk. (Oh. Oh yes dahling, the world looks flat in the atmosphere of your "Oh" . Oh.)

"Algerian security forces knew some al-Qaeda over the Libyan television screen. They had been detained in Algeria for terrorist activities in the country and deported to Libya, in the hope that Gadhafi would impose severe punishment to them. However, that did not mean a revolution in Libya and Syria driven by Al-Qaeda, which wanted to establish an Islamic state. They just took advantage of the chaos to establish their existence and joined the fight against the secular regime, repressive and corrupt. In Yemen, the same thing also happened."

"You can mention all of them, hon. What? AQAP? AQIM? Boko Haram? Al-Shabaab? What else? Ah, whatever! what is the name of Al Qaeda branch in Iraq? They're just the same. You know who they are. They just take advantage of Arab Spring's situation. You already know that since August last year, Warren Weinstein was abducted by the Taliban-Pakistan in Lahore. They kidnapped Robert Fowler for 40 months. What the heck? So far they have earned 76 million dollars from the activity of kidnappings of wealthy foreigners. They also helped the group Boko Haram in Nigeria. Now what do you want me to say? Only you know it, but that's what I want to say to you."

I was still waiting for the duck's neck would swell back to the surface and swam calmly as before, but it's too long .... ah, too long. Where's the duck now? Hello duck, where are you? Ah, has it been sunk forever in the bottom of the blue-green-brown lake? Oh, no.

    Bilderberg Group is one of the secret organizations that control the world. Most people just underestimate them, but do you know that your destiny, your family, even all the people in the world are taken into account when they met in their annual meeting?
    Previously I had absolutely no interest to them. I am more interested in the Freemasons or the Illuminati, but a book that has become a bestseller in 49 countries described them so scary. Bilderberg Group has helped to control the world in their own way, just like other secret organizations that participate in control of the world in unnatural ways. Bilderberg Group is not so much different. Their members consist of people who have influence to at least be able to lobby for high-ranking countries in the third world. More frightening yet, some sources said that the CIA, MI6, KGB, and some secret intelligence service countries around the world have been headed by the members of  Bilderberg Group. This means they have access to almost all of developed countries databases in the world.

    In each of their meetings, they invited several prominent who are considered as the useful tool in their global plans. Every character that they specifically invited has been shown to have become important figures in important history of the world.

    For example, in 1991, Bill Clinton was invited to attend the Bilderberg meeting in Baden-Baden, Germany in 1991. During the meeting, David Rockefeller (one of the top brass in Bilderbrg Group) told Clinton that the priority of Bilderbrg Group was NAFTA (North America Free Trade Agreement).

    Then Clinton was offered the presidency (with surely he helped the implementation of NAFTA as the reciprocal of the presidency).  The result? At the election a year later, Bill Clinton was the elected president in elections in 1992. During his reign, he was famous as NAFTA proponent figures.

    Another character is for example, Tony Blair. He attended the Bilderberg meeting in 1993. In July 1994 his career had increased dramatically and he became the party leader. In May 1997, his name was recorded in history as one of the prime minister who took part in the history of world government.

    Some Americans whom I have met in one of America forum even began to doubt about their electoral system. When I claimed to be an American (Note: a lie is not always bad, isn't it?... ) and "throw the body hidden's tricks" with the question, "So do you still think we get to chose our president?", then the reply I received was, "No, we just... bla bla bla."

    The next reply was mostly nuanced by the party's politics, but at least I was satisfied knowing that there were some Americans who have responded the influence of Bilderberg Group. (to be continued...)

      VLADIMIR PUTIN



      This Summer

      Summer Time I'm saying to myself, "Haiyaaa... you do not need to pretend to look for Syria and others if you only intend to look at Putin's face while remembering your summer, especially to reflect on how long, how many times the winter has come to you before your real spring arrives, as well as a thrilling autumn that will excite you. Hmm . Actually, I love four seasons of my life cycle.

      (CZ-lacalifusa020612)

      And The Autumn Leaves sent by Nino through one of our favorite songs. Je vous remercie, mon petit chou... Today my words are still black. If they have become blue, that means I have replied your sweet song. Of course, you do not need to wait for the change every day. I will tell you. I will make the blue in the "Thank you. Je vous remercie."




      Jan Pepijn Servaas, Fairuz Azalia and Adriaan Zef like this.

      Adriaan Zef  : Kiss me honey. Your eyes are brown.
      Almira Izzati : cutieee... Manatee makes me feel fat but very motherly.

      Fairuz Azalia : C, I can't help but laugh, to imagine your giggling because Zawahiri attitude to the Syria's unrest. It's really an elegant humor. Ok, keep in touch with us!
      Jan Pepijn Servaas : One of the symbolic issue concerning the relationship between minority rights and Islamic law in Egypt is whether a Copt could get a chance fighting over the presidency. Within this framework,Can Egypt's Christian minority enjoy all civil rights which are owned by minorities in democratic countries, such as the right to contest the presidential and parliamentary elections, the right to submit a law draft to the parliament, and legal equality?
      Pranay Suresh :If the Copts want to compete to become the president of Egypt, I think they should be given such rights, as long as they promise to abide by Egyptian laws and the will of the majority. It's up to people to choose them or not.
      Jan Pepijn Servaas : But, according to some polls show that the majority of Egyptians want Islamic law is implemented as part of the country's legal system, right?
      Pranay Suresh :I kinda forgot its basic legitimacy, but even so, the Islamic Shari'a is also a source of controversy. The voices of the Coptic Orthodox Christian community sue what they perceive as discrimination against non-Muslim minorities. Human rights activists who are secular and pro-democracy also say that the application of Islamic law is incompatible with democracy. According to them, it can only be realized in a secular state.
      Jan Pepijn Servaas :I have not mentioned the Muslim Brotherhood yet
      Astrid Adrienne : It has been mentioned in your grin, Jan. But in the midst of public debate involving the secularists and Coptic activists on the one hand and Islamic political groups on the other side --- especially the Muslim Brotherhood which often appears in the media when there is discussion of Islamic law --- indeed, there's an alternative way in which the concepts of Islamic law, democracy and secularism can be coupled as part of a whole political system without compromising the fundamental principles of one of the three.
      Jan Pepijn Servaas : I catch your point is less clear.
      Astrid Adrienne : Proponents of this approach believe in popular sovereignty and the rule of law, and feel that lawmakers should be elected by the people. They still regard Islamic law as a frame of reference as long as it is received by the majority through a democratic process; the elected officials make the final decision. This approach differs from other approaches such as the approach proposed by the Muslim Brotherhood that requires the clergy's approval before a law is legitimized.

      In line with that, the Egypt should frame its own model of democracy in accordance with its history, culture, and the most important thing is its people. After all, we know the democracy and secularism were adopted in a variety of different ways. For example, French and Turkish models, which strictly regulate religion in public life to protect democracy, unlike the U.S. system, religion is relatively influential in politics. In each country, the relationship between religion and political systems should be harmonized with the country's characteristics.

      "Thank you for your perception! I like your romantic side, even if I do not always comment and I'm glad that you're in my circle of friends."
      (Courtesies by: Wolfgang A. Gerhardt)

      Wolfgang A.Gerhardt : May be you like this Sunday collage

      Cisca Zarmansyah : Before today, there never was a person doing this to me. You create a simple matter to look special. This is a special thing for me.

      Cisca Zarmansyah : Thank you. I love it. I love you, my friend.

      CieL- FreYa Ceastle : Hmm, he's so nice...















      "I am me.
      In all the world,
      there is no one else exactly like me.
      Everything that comes out of me
      is authentically mine,
      because I alone chose it --
      I own everything about me:
      my body,
      my feelings,
      my mouth,
      my voice,
      all my actions,
      whether they be to others or myself.
      I own my fantasies,
      my dreams,
      my hopes,
      my fears.
      I own my triumphs and successes,
      all my failures and mistakes.
      Because I own all of me,
      I can become intimately acquainted with me.
      By so doing,
      I can love me
      and be friendly with all my parts.
      I know there are aspects about myself that puzzle me,
      and other aspects that I do not know
      -- but as long as I am friendly
      and loving to myself,
      I can courageously and hopefully
      look for solutions
      to the puzzles and ways
      to find out more about me.
      However I look and sound,
      whatever I say and do,
      and whatever I think and feel at a given moment in time
      is authentically me.
      If later some parts of how I looked,
      sounded,
      thought,
      and felt
      turn out to be unfitting,
      I can discard that which is unfitting,
      keep the rest,
      and invent something new
      for that which I discarded.
      I can see,
      hear,
      feel,
      think,
      say, and do.
      I have the tools to survive,
      to be close to others,
      to be productive,
      and to make sense
      and order out of the world of people
      and things outside of me.
      I own me,
      and therefore,
      I can engineer me.
      I am me,
      and I am okay."
