  1. This is not the joke. The joke is that some Islamic webpages and gullible people share this as an authentic quote.
  2. Or a liberal code? Equality is greater than division.
  3. Kim Jong-un announced in a news conference that North Korea would be sending a man to the sun within ten years! A reporter said - "But the sun is very hot. How can your man land on the sun?" There was a stunned silence. Nobody knew how to react. Then Kim Jong-un quietly answered "We will land at night". The entire audience broke out in thunderous applause ! Back in the White House, Donald Trump and his entourage were watching the news conference on TV. When Trump heard what Kim had said, he sneered - "What an idiot. There is no s
  4. The people who lived in BC must have been terrified as to what the years were counting down to.
  5. Gangs of London. S01 The plot is tight and actions scenes are sheer poetry. An entertaining series for crime TV enthusiasts.
  6. A leaf from the past. Umayyad Mosque. Damascus. Syria. 1996. I took it as a young kid during my first visit to Syria with my dearly departed grandma. It was taken with a Yashica camera and Kodak film. In those days each click was precious and costly, and we had to think and plan for the best angle to take pics. PS: this is a mobile cam pic of the positive.
  7. Of course, and they are not even trying to hide it anymore.
  8. Bhai saab ye to bhi typical desi mentality hai...ya Taliban ban jao ya kafir ban jao.
  9. Khaalu kehte hain bachi buhat extreme hai...
  10. American establishment is getting a little lesson in humility. On the same day the American people were threatened with military action by their own government, the POTUS stood in his vast gardens to announce a new raft of sanctions against China for its treatment of protesters in Hong Kong. The irony, I'm sure, is lost on the Americans.
  11. The nonstop reporting in Western media over "justice and accountability" for the unfortunate victims is now bordering on hysterical. Where are these people when US "accidentally" drones hundreds in wedding receptions and hospitals, or when their buddies the Saudis "mistakenly" and regularly bomb school buses and public buildings?
  12. On the contrary and although it may not look like it, I believe Trump has been doing a good job at dismantling the empire. It's slow and often times imperceptible, but it's there. No wonder that the status quo perceives his policies and actions as a direct threat to the working of the military industrial complex. He wants to make America great again. I'd let him do that if that means a less involved and more withdrawn US. It would be better for the US and obviously it'd be better for the entire world. Plus, despite his bluster and fist-pumping, the guy has not started a new war. And
  13. I don't know. Those who'd like to err on the side of John Pilger might have some ideas. A rogue Iranian operator who got brain-fogged? A real US missile/drone that flew in undetected until it hit the craft? MEK sleeper cell coming to life out of nowhere? MOSSAD missile strike from the space?
  14. Addressing the emboldened bit, I have been reflecting on what could have led to the downing of the passenger jet. At first the Western allegations seemed so absurd I simply laughed them off. But since Iran has admitted it, it now seems reasonable to ask questions even if it ruffles some feathers. I don't know what kind of military equipment Iran has but either it is absolutely useless or the people tasked to handle it don't know how it works. * For a US fighter to come all the way to Tehran to bomb military installations, it first has to enter Iranian airspace from hundreds of miles
  15. There might not be an equivalence of circumstances but there is an equivalence of action and outcome. In both cases the shooting party believed it was a hostile craft coming in to bomb them. In both cases unsuspecting passenger jets were blown into smithereens.
