First I certainly hope you’ve had a nice Christmas and will have a prosperous New Year just ahead. This article will not seem compliant with the holiday spirit, but may prove to be of some interest.
Readers of the Network news and other Media outlets frequently don’t get the whole picture as it is reported overseas. Here I’ve gleaned the runners from Asian and European networks that indicate there is a difference. The foreign news appears to include reports the American Media does not or overlooks, unless one searches for them.
Here are a few Runner Items as examples:
The Spanish Parliament voted to recognized Palestine as a free state. It is the 138th U.N. member to do so. (Reported on French Network 24)
One hundred and fifty thousand Indonesian troops mobilized after creditable ISIS attack warnings against Christians and Shiites, 10 arrests made. (reported on Asian Network News, later FOx)
Terrorist may have already entered Jakarta. (Network Asia)
Israel-Palestine clashes in the West Bank, three attacks, two Palestinians shot dead.
Iran compensates U. S. hostages after decades of negotiations (Only Channel News Asia)
Israeli U. S. Ambassador sends holiday gifts to members of U. N. consisting of products made in the illegally occupied West Bank Settlements. (French Channel 24)
Russia to build two nuclear reactors for the Iran in 2016. Russia supports its allies as the U. S. does its own. (European Channels)
Russia, India cement ties on energy and defense deals.
Iraq forces retake Ramadi. Old guerrilla ploy in progress, fight and withdraw if faced with overwhelming force arraigned against you. (Notice had time to plant booby traps)
Taliban forces withdraw from Sanagin in Afghanistan. Another guerrilla like move. The afghan war can go on forever. Bush W. had to jump in with both feet over national emotions, anger, and revenge after 9-11. Should have been a 100 day campaign to rid Al Qaida base strong hold. (To be fair, the American People called for the intervention and may not have taken less, still clearer heads could have been used on long term strategy)
Fifteen charged with lynching over a Muslim eating beef. Millions of cows roam free in India, are fed and nurtured but they cannot be eaten. “There are more cows in India they cars in the U. S., 280 million. Muslims are just as ridiculous about not, not eating pork.
British and U. S. Embassies in Beijing warned of terrorist threats. What a difference a couple of phone calls can make. I recall Stevie Wonder singing. “No New Years Eve, to celebrate, no chocolate candy hearts to give away, not first of Spring, no robins sing, It’s just an ordinary day…. I just called to say I love you. I just called to say how much I care.” ISIS.
Amnesty International accuses Russia of 200 killing Civilians. Yes, the Bear has vicious claws since the Vikings sailed down the Moscow River a thousand years ago . The Bloody Scythians are regarded as the most violent tribe in the history of Massacres, and Stalin killed more people than Hitler.
Peace be with you on this Holiday Season, and all the Best.
