Update: This cartoon also works!


The Abkhazia push-back

A week ago, I was sitting with this american friend of mine, who couldn't , for the life of him, figure out why the US backed Kosovo's independence. "It's causing a crisis in the balkans. Why antagonize Russia?", to which i responded, 'because Russia has been antagonizing you for the longest time. Do you wanna go over the list? Iraq, Iran, North Korea, Ukraine, Belwarus, Venezuela? Pushing back, after all of this, is expected. Hell, it's a little too late if you ask me!"

My friend looked unconvinced, and I didn't get why until I saw this piece of news:

decried Russia’s decision to restore economic and transport links to
the breakaway Black Sea region of Abkhazia, which plans to ask Russia
to recognize its independence, citing Kosovo as a precedent.

will be viewed as the economic annexation of Abkhazia, which is part of
Georgia,” Temur Iakobashvili, Georgia’s minister for reintegration
issues, said Thursday by telephone in the capital, Tbilisi.

“This once again proves that Russia has a political and economic stake in the peace talks.”

President Mikheil Saakashvili has accused Russia of backing separatist
regimes in Abkhazia and another region, South Ossetia. Both regions
broke away during wars in the 1990s and have pro-Russian leaderships
and Russian peacekeepers. Saakashvili has pledged to bring them back
under federal control. Most of their citizens hold Russian passports.

So the US backs the Pro-US Kosovo's independence from Pro-russia Serbia, and Russia hits back immedietly with Pro-Russia's Abkhazia's independence from Pro-US Georgia . Who said the cold war is over? The Russians are still playing, and unlike the US, they seem to be playing to win!

Isn’t Kosovo Islamic?

Then how come none of the arab or islamic countries have recognized its independence yet?

Just wondering!

Falling in love with a female assassin

A heartbreaking dispatch from the Columbian armed conflict!

All hail the Boy!

Dubai is building the largest tower in the world, calling it Burj Dubai, which is a 4 billion dollars project. Do you know who owns the penthouse?

Naguib Sawiris.

Yeah, that's right bitches!

Opinions now vary on what to make of this, or rather, what should Naguib do now with his new found property. Some have suggested he should -for the fuck of it- put outside his window a bigass cross, others have suggested that a cross won't be necessary, since the man can just literally piss on the entirty of Dubai from his Balcony, while there are those who contend that all of this ain't necessary, because just having Sawiris- with his antiwahabi pro-egyptian culture stances- occupy the top floor, which is also the most expensive one, of this building, is enough of a statement on its own. And I am inclined to agree with that!

Buffy is now bisexual!

If you were ever a fan of the series, you should now know that Buffy just had her first sexual experiment with another woman. Or as the always elegent Perez Hilton puts it "Buffy eats Muffy"!

The rest of you Non-Buffy fans, well, just look the other way or something! 

Italian Judges are bored

They have to be. I mean, their "men no adjustee their junk in public" ruling was absurd enough, now, the italian courts have given women who cheat on their men a license to lie.

Italy's highest appeal court has ruled that
married Italian women who commit adultery are entitled to lie about it
to protect their honour.

The court gave its landmark ruling after hearing the
case of a 48-year-old woman, convicted of giving false testimony to
police by denying she had lent her mobile phone to her lover.

The appeal court did not agree that she had broken the law.

It said bending the truth was justified to conceal extra-marital relationships.

he he he he he! Allright! 

The view in Israel

 I have been watching the Israeli media ever since the seminary school attacks, and damn are things tense. Lieberman of course is using the issue to push for his usual agenda of "kick the arab MK's out", the media is obsessing about the fact that the gunman had Hamas flags hanging outside of his house (u would think the sheinbeit would, i dunno, pay attention to shit like that), and are predicting how this is the end of Hamas, because  "NOW THE GLOVES ARE OFF" (riight), all the while there are those who are still waiting/hoping/deluding themselves with the idea that somehow Mubarak will be able to reign in Hamas, and those people who seem to think so, believe it or not, are the Israeli government cabinet ministers. Yeah, good luck with that. Seriously! You will need it!

Insanity is relative

My Father just called me from Dubai.

He informed me that yesterday he went to the Celine Dion Live Concert, with Queen Rania and Mona Gamal Abdel Nasser.

There were so many things wrong with that statement, I didn't know what to do but to hang up and spend the past 2 hours crouched in a corner, holding myself and shivering.

The Video Vigilante

Here is a man who spends his time in Oklahoma city videotaping prostitutes as their customers pick them up and then posts the video, with the man's face, on his website! He considers it a moral crusade. I call it being unemployed! But if you want to see his videos, you can go here!

Qhaddafi the libertarian

The man is brilliant.

Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi urged a sweeping reform of government
on Sunday, saying most of the cabinet system should be dismantled as it
had failed to manage the north Africa's country's windfall oil earnings.

Gaddafi told the General People's Congress or parliament that big
projects were behind schedule and so ordinary people should themselves
devise a new way of sharing out oil revenues.

"All citizens have the right to benefit from the oil funds. They
should take the money and do whatever they want with it," he said in a
speech in his home town of Sirte.

His call for the dismantling of most cabinet committees, key cogs
in Libya's unique Jamahiriyah or "state of the masses" system, is
expected to be debated by parliament in coming days.

What would the middle-east be like without him? Seriously..
