2-State Solution for Israel?

This UN Resolution for Israel has the right motives

but it will create another problem.

it appears that this resolution was fast-tracked,

meaning to say it is being done in  haste.

In so many times I did mention in this site

that the crux of the problem is this:

the UN created the state of Israel

right smack dab in the land of Palestine

without defining its borders.

As a result, Israel continues to expand its area

via the construction of settlements for Israel.

In time, the region which the Palestinians

 claim as their territory is getting smaller

because Israel continues to build settlements.

The Un hesitated to approve the creation of

a Palestinian state.

Oftentimes it

throws the problem backstage.

This new resolution attempts to compensate for the

neglect of the Palestinian problem

but its approval still does not prevent

the construction of Israeli settlements.

There will still be no defined borders.

Instead of approving a resolution for two-states in the region,

the UN should simply correct itself and put down borders.

As a consequence of fixed borders,

the implication is that the state of Israel

is confined to a limited territory,

and what is left after this is Palestinian territory.

There would then be the automatic formation of the state of Palestine

and the expansion of Israel  is ended.

In other words,

let the territory define the state

and not the state define its borders.

Now, for the umpteenth time,

DEFINE THE BORDERS OF ISRAEL.

 

Finders Keepers

Donald Trump would not accept the underwater drone

that the Chinese seized from the South China Sea

and is now returning it.

Smart decision.

WHY?

Think of the implications if the US accepted their drone.

Now think of the more powerful international implications

if the US refused to accept.

If you still don’t get it,

try not to think American,

think Oriental instead!

If you still don’t get it.

You’re hopeless.

Under Siege

This website of mine

http://coolambo.ca

is under attack

by you guess who?

There are now feelers to close this site.

It must be something I said,

EH?

I am pretty sure this attack is not being done by the Russians, yes?

Blaming Putin Again?

Of all the ridiculous things to blame on Putin

it is that he ordered the hacking of the US presidential election

that made the Americans vote for Donald Trump.

Next thing you know Putin is to be blamed

for American dirty water.

International impression of the country commonly called

the United States

is getting lower and lower and lower.

No mea culpas, eh?qmark2

Global Cooling

This is Nature’s warning—-

there has bee too much carbon tax being imposed.

Stop collecting carbon tax.

And tell the Green Party to protest against carbon tax!

War Strategy in the Middle East

War strategy in the Middle East may still conform

to those of the Afrika Korps and the Arab Legion,

but with some significant critiques.

Presently, there has been no utilization of such weapons  as

helicopter gunships, or modern heavy tanks.

The introduction of shoulder-fired missiles prohibits

the use of these weapons.

These are also vulnerable to sandstorms which

gets in through the filters.

The main thing, though, was the utter disregard

for the benefits from battle strategies

such as the simple siege.

The reason for the extended life of the pseudo army

that is the ISIS is that it still enjoys an endless

supply of provisions and ammunition.

A siege of an area such as Mosul would surround the city

and their supply lines would be cut.

The idea is to block communication from the rear.

But then again, sieges are ancient strategy,

but they will still work.

Retreat To Palmyra

The Generals declared that ISIS has recaptured Palmyra.

My guess is that ISIS retreated to Palmyra

where they may have a weapons cache

and the logistics would be more favorable for them.

Furthermore, it is to be noted that ISIS just walked in to Palmyra.

Palmyra is also a site which is still full

of historic artifacts, and as such may not come

under bombings by the Syrians.

It is also closer to the Iraqi border, and may then serve

as a base for the ISIS in Iraq in case

these are forced to retreat.

Should all the terrorist forces be concentrated

on Palmyra, expect a last ditch battle.

The Kitchen Sink

The losers of the last American Presidential election

have thrown every swipe at the winner,

Donald Trump, in their attempt

de-legitimize the newly elected

President,

which is Donald Trump.

They have thrown everything at Trump

but the kitchen sink.

The components of the American Intelligence Community

have rolled out the rumor

that Russian hacking have influenced the election results.

This is a no-brainer swipe,

meaning that those who thought of this

literally have no brains.

Hacking is one thing.

Hacking to influence millions of voters,

or even change the results,

is another thing,

and is not only next to impossible.

IT IS impossible.

The most practicable way for the Russians

to help put up Trump as President

is for Putin to stand at the corner,

wearing a wig,

to wink and smile with coyness at every voter,

who then scampers to vote for Trump.

The reason for the rumor is that the Intelligence Community

is afraid that Trump will privatize these institutions

and hire the KGB to do its work.

With the failure of the less than Intelligence Community

to rile up Trump,

the Electoral College now steps in

to take up the PRRRRST effort.

More no-brainers.

Their function is to declare the winner of the elections

as determined from the legitimate results.

They are not supposed to scrutinize the qualifications

of the winner.

The voters have already done this function.

Consider now this Electoral College nuisance

AS THE THROWN KITCHEN  SINK!

But I do not see

Donald Trump ducking it.

He only quacks at it!

Good for him—keep cool, man.

Their beef should be directed to the Constitution!

Protectionism

Trump’s America will shift to protectionism

within the nascent stage of his administration.

The country will retreat into a shell

to replenish its resources

and re-fashion its mode of international relationships.

It has to, if only to retain the dominance

of the American dollar.

Inside this shell, America will rejuvenate

and thusly will it resume its

leading position in the world.

In the past years, America over-extended

its military influence,

always in mind the threat of Russian aggression.

This was a mistake.

The world does not have to bow and kow-tow to America

for the Americans to lead.

Besides, Russia has enough of its own domestic problems

to challenge America for world domination.

And China?

This country will have problems feeding

its own people

and will retain the American currency for foreign transactions.

I believe that America will retreat into

a shell of its own making

to heal and restore its resources

for another try in world domination

via business transactions.

The Unwritten Script

President Donald Trump just said in NC

that the script has not been written yet,

and that the public will be the one to write it.

HAH!

I never said that his script was already written.

It is still in his noggin.

And as brilliant as a businessman that he is,

his plans are not written.

The script is in his head

and remains as a guide to how he will proceed.

Well, at least he knows about the script now.

And that I know how it will be put on film.

At Arm’s Length

This phrase may be one key

to President Trump’s conflict of interest predicament.

He should consider transactions with his companies,

or with his siblings,

at arm’s length,

meaning to say that no undue

personal consideration is being afforded

his siblings or his companies.

After all, a conflict of interest may be brought up

if there is suspicion that transactions

were influenced by personal considerations.

When dealing at arm’s length

the transactions are purely business in nature.

Chickening Out

My open challenge to Retired Colonel Dean McCausland

to discuss with me openly

the Mosul War Strategy has not been responded to.

I daresay he is chickening out,

or he does not know anything about the Mosul Strategy,

or he is not sure he can meet the challenge.

Well this challenge is still open.

Anybody from the War Strategy School

can take up the challenge in place of the Colonel.

Remember, this is a discussion of the much publicized

American War Strategy.

To start this discussion,

I will say that the retaking of Mosul

should have been accomplished

by just about now,

had there been…………

Instead, the battle is still going on.

The Script

It has been amusing, nay, entertaining

the efforts of the media intelligent-sia

to guess what President Trump has in mind

each time he announces a cabinet pick.

Well, I can also put out a guess of my own,

after all, my guesses so far

have been square on.

I am guessing that President Trump

has a script on how his presidency will shape up.

And that the selection of his transition team

is being done in line to fill up the actors of his script.

Much points are being given as regards the applicant’s

proficiency and loyalty; much is being given the latter virtue

to determine whether the applicant will follow

strictly Trump’s directives.

If the tv media would still like to regain favor

with President Trump, they should pick

one opportune moment when they would announce,

in a chorus,

“WOW”

Otherwise they may be relegated to the status

of receiving second-hand news.

US/Taiwan/China

Again the American experts on international diplomacy

have got it wrong when they believe

that Trump’s talk with the Taiwanese President

will shatter US-Chinese relations,

what with China considering that Taiwan is Chinese territory.

The relations between China and Taiwan

has nothing to do with the relations

between China and the US.

Until after the UN accepts that China has sovereignty over Taiwan

would the US refrain from having diplomatic ties with Taiwan.

The US having relations with Palestine

is not an act of war against Israel.

Russia having relations with China

is not an act of war against NATO.

Iran having relations with Syria

is not an act of war against the US.

Thinking otherwise is very like childish jealousies.

There has been a rash of ignorance being publicized

by the tv commentators on just about everything.

They should be ashamed of themselves.

Being a sensation on tv is one thing.

Being stupid is another.
