Blogging in Support of Tibet

The original post by Miladysa.

Stuck, II
Any Olympic protest by the United States would deeply offend a proud Beijing leadership that hopes the games will show China's emergence as a new world power. It also would run the risk of hindering a host of international efforts the Bush administration needs China's help to solve, including efforts to confront Myanmar's military junta and North Korean and apparently Iranian nuclear programs. China holds a veto on the U.N. Security Council, and the U.S. and Chinese economies, as well as many of the countries' political efforts around the world, are increasingly intertwined.
"The problem with a boycott is you end up taking 1.3 billion Chinese — who have different views of democracy, of the U.S., of human rights, but all want the Olympics to be successful — and you turn them all against the U.S.," said Green, an analyst with the Center for Strategic and International Studies think tank. "It's a crude and blunt instrument to just boycott."

[#] In many languages this would mean 'we're in a fuckin tight position'. Cant say the present American government is the sharpest in the world, when was the last time Bush made up his mind...by himself? What we want is simply for the world leaders to skip the opening ceremony, not the games itself. Send a message by being there, but not for the opening ceremony. Many world leaders already made a decision to skip the opening ceremony.

the problems of intertwined societies, democracies and economies .... as much as I am glad tht US cannot exude the sense of one man show in all respect now ... it irritates me to see how irresponsible the so called large economies of the world have become ... I always tend to rem one of the quotes 'power corrupts and absolute power corrupts absolutely'

[alok] well said bro. the large economies are to service the few big players, the ceo's, etc. very hard to get them to act against a cause they can identify with. sad but true.

First Contact, Remixed

On the last Thursday of the year, about half past 10 local time, they landed in the garden of the White House. The security never knew what hit them, in no time all the men in blue and black and whatever colour they’re in were rolling on the ground laughing. Apparently the aliens hit them with laughing gas. Good, now we know they have some sense of humour and wont bomb us…hemmm…senseless. Another half an hour went past, the president was hiding under his table, the secret service nowhere in sight. Thinking of the worst, he reached for his cell phone and dialled 911 with his trembling fingers. So much for him, the aliens UFO, which funnily enough is shaped like a saucer, lighted up like a Las Vegas casino, sans neon signboard. A door opened up and from it rolled down a weird looking robot with a huge plasma screen TV for its head. Words fail to describe alien technology, literally, so I’m using earth analogy. Oh, and by the way, I am the dude, who saw it all.

The president peering from …

...you

for, its during the rainy seasons
when we sit admiring
the cool breeze and wandering droplets
we realize we are admiring the beauty of loneliness
from afar, of you and me
