So you Hools have voted and indeed, a horrible vote. I do not understand you listened to the right winged UKIP, shame on you!

Do you really understand what happens now? Less migrants? Bullocks, England as former colonial power gets her migrants from her own former colonies. And they are still on their way because they like your social system and because you, my friends, do not want to do minor jobs.

So, my dearest English friends, this is what you can expect within the near future:
 .
– financial disaster, London will lose its importance as financial stock market centre,
– increasing prices for food and energy (and alcohol!)
– corporate insolvencies,
– economic barriers to market entry, products and services market,
– stock market crash,
– Northern Island and Scotland may leave The Kingdom,
– no more access to the police-databases of the EU (Eurodac, terrorism database),
– less tourism, as costs for flights and ferries to the Island will increase (bad luck for Sally)
 .
God may bless you, England, you will need it.

Save the Internet – No Free Basics for Mr Zuckerberg and Fakebook

Mr Zuckerberg, you better send them food instead of advertisement!

its a trap
Facebook want’s to Rule the Internet: Free Basics is NOT an open platform.

Facebook doesn’t pay for Free Basics, telecom operators do. Where do they make money from? From users who pay. By encouraging people to choose Free Basics, Facebook reduces the propensity to bring down data costs for paid Internet access.

Stay Out And Shut Up

I really should not listen to the news nowadays. A few days ago the UN Security Council unanimously adopted a resolution, which provides a bold peace plan in addition to a ceasefire and talks between government and opposition. Great! A peace plan! Another fine plan, I thought and learned that after the help of the UN in six months a transitional government will be formed and after 18 months the creation of a new constitution to be held election for a new government will be formed.

Well, how shall that work? I asked myself. The latest report of the Centre on Religion and Geopolitics says that 15 of  the Salafist-jihadist groups (with a transnational ideology) battling with IS would put themselves in its place.

Syria

90 percent of the groups would have the goal of overthrowing Assad, 33 percent fight against the IS. Only 38 percent said they would strive for a democracy, 10 percent protection of all ethnic and religious groups. Well, 38% democracy and 10% protection for dissenters… no, thanks.

Western powers should stay out there. Even their intervention in Libya, Iraq and Afghanistan proved that any intervention exacerbates the situation.

If you send weapons all  you get back are refugees.

Europe – Everyone Is So Tired

VN:F [1.9.22_1171]
Rating: 5.3/6 (3 votes cast)

Everyone is so tired — the politicians, the people, the media, the institutions, democracy. Europe is tired, exhausted, haggard. Yet another marathon negotiating session? How many have there already been? Yet again these tired eyes of overexertion of those involved in the negotiations. Once again a postponement or a compromise that nobody is convinced of and is really just the start of the next crisis. This is how things have been proceeding for years now. Enough already.

We don’t want to speak of greatness, or of political heroes or of far-reaching actions. That’s difficult in a complex system like Europe. We want to speak of the minimum: Politics requires successes in order to legitimate itself. It has to solve problems, especially the really tough ones that require a lot of effort. But that’s not happening. In the case of Greece, all we have been seeing are pseudo-solutions, if even that.

A brief breather is always given, only to be followed by the next marathon meeting and the next expedited proceedings in the German parliament. The exhaustion will continue to grow, as will the weariness that will catapult the next populists into power — the very ones who will make solving the problems even harder. It’s a vicious cycle.

A Permanent State of Crisis

But exhaustion is merely one of the costs of this permanent state of crisis. The truth is that we have lost Europe in recent years. It is no longer the Europe that its generation of founders and builders promised — people like Robert Schuman, Konrad Adenauer, Helmut Kohl and François Mitterrand. It’s almost the opposite. What we are living in today is an anti-Europe.

Much has contributed to this state of affairs — not least the euro crisis. But nothing has been as damaging as the protracted fight over Greece.

Europe promised joint growth for everyone. Instead we have competition for prosperity. Many Germans don’t want to have to sacrifice anything for Greece, whereas many Greeks expect Germans to make a contribution to ensure that what the Greeks are forced to give up doesn’t become too harsh.

Why I Am Glad When the Reps Take Over

Rating: 6.0/6 (2 votes cast)

McCaine, McCaine…. tssskk… It amuses me how you fight for our rights. You want to send weapons and troops to Ukraine in order to chase the Russians away? Oh, my, did you forget your own CIA reports? Do you remember Iraq, Syria, Libya and even Afghanistan?

When the US left Iraq in 2011 they supplied the Iraqi army with weapons. As the terrorist militia then the cities of Tikrit and Mosul occupied, they conquered them with all the weapons depots full of modern American war machine. Mission failed.

In the case of Syria, the US has supported the moderate rebels in 2014 in the fight against President Bashar al-Assad. Meanwhile, parts of these rebel groups have migrated to Al-Qaeda offshoots or extremists have left their positions without a fight. So the real enemy in Syria now are in the possession of modern weapons. Mission failed.

Since 2011 America sent war equipment to Libyan rebels against Gaddafi. The recipients included the Islamic terrorist group Ansar al-Sharia that the attack on the US consulate in Benghazi committed in 2012 and the American ambassador and several diplomats killed. Mission failed.

In Afghanistan, the United States helped 1979 mujahedin rebels to fight the invasion of the USSR. The Palestinian theologian Abdullah Azzam played a central role in justifying the war against the Soviets. One of his followers was no less than Osama bin Laden. He opened a training camp for the rebels – supplied with weapons from America. Bin Laden’s al Qaeda network, which developed from the training camp and is now one of the biggest enemies of the United States. Mission failed. – at least you finally got your ‘ex-brother in arms’ Bin Laden.

So, Mr McCaine – you and your 47 Reps please: SHUT UP. Neither the German chancellor nor the border minister need your moronic advice. WE do live close to the battle-field, not you.

So finally -after being a true friend to America all my life – let me emphasize that I hope you and your stupid 47 idiots will win the next election. This really gives me the chance to renounce my political friendship to America’s leaders, because such friends like you nobody needs. And when America is busted, sick of war the people hopefully learned that you and your folks are nothing but a a senile gang of ignorant war makers.

Oh yes, the best of all: we will say good bye to TTIP and Germany will have the best economical relation to Russia and we will get lots of electricity generated by nuclear power from Iran. Thanks for nothing, Mr McCaine! Mission failed.
