Hi Pava,thanks for those kind words,very timely. When these special things resonate,reverberate deep within, its like reintroducing oneself to ones being.It may resonate differently for each person,because of our different perspectives etc.,nevertheless it is important in its own way

Personally, healing someone from his wounds, interrogating him and then killing him, I don't call that an interrogation, it is rather an "extraction" of informations. It means that the authority really doesn't care about the person they question, rather they are more interested into the informations than into the person, right

j....Please stick to the original issue.Now interrogation or extraction produce the same product,also if you try to murder someone,do not expect love in return,expect everything but.Your a priori,or whatever,your let me explain why before throwing eggs at me,’Histoire de terrorism’ has long been well understood.You also mentioned cornflakes(Kellogg's maybe?),Consider then the ‘Kellogg/Briand Pact’ or Pact of Paris’(1929) forbidding war , any sort of war,’ for any reason.This pact is well portrayed by the song ‘Last night I had the strangest dream’ by Ed McCurdy in 1950. So now ,if war is against the law,our duty is to be sure this law is followed. Now since you are closest to the French Foreign Ministry get of your ass ,go there an grab a copy and start printing. Below are the signatory parties:

After negotiations, the pact was signed in Paris at the French Foreign Ministry by the representatives from Australia, Belgium, Canada, Czechoslovakia, France, Germany, British India, the Irish Free State, Italy, Japan, New Zealand, Poland, South Africa, the United Kingdom[4][5] and the United States. It was provided that it would come into effect on July 24, 1929. By that date, the following nations had deposited instruments of definitive adherence to the pact: Afghanistan, Albania, Austria, Bulgaria, China, Cuba, Denmark, Dominican Republic, Egypt, Estonia, Ethiopia, Finland, Guatemala, Hungary, Iceland, Latvia, Liberia, Lithuania, the Netherlands, Nicaragua, Norway, Panama, Peru, Portugal, Romania, the Soviet Union, the Kingdom of the Serbs, Croats, and Slovenes, Siam, Spain, Sweden, and Turkey. Eight further states joined after that date: Persia, Greece, Honduras, Chile, Luxembourg, Danzig, Costa Rica and Venezuela

Good lord, they arrest the young terrorist of Boston, almost kill him, then heal him from his hurts, then maybe condemn him to death again. Huh ? What's the point of healing someone for killing him again after ?

j....The young terrorist was trying to kill as many people as possible,in the backlash he is wounded,he is healed ,the intention being to gather as much information as possible as for his motives and possible supporters,and,if not for this,they would have blown his fucking head off,its the American way.Now he will have a trial,his mother will cry,lawyers will make money,Allah won’t give a hoot.C’est la vie ,huh,not very complicated.

(1) (May I suggest?) excuse me for adding the question mark. It seems that you did.I would have said yes but only if in a civilized manner. (2) (Say it plainly) I was responding to Katy's request.(what’s the story) Jackanory is /was a BBC TV series,I believe it used children's rhymes along with a Cockney accent,thus,if Kate is from this part of England she would fair better at this (Jackanory). Hope this is simple enough for you to follow,if not,let me know, being a gentle and patient man I will try a little harder,just for you dear boy. (3) (Be a man) Good start jack boy,you can spell the word,t’s a beginning. (4) (Confused) Sorry if all this confused you jack boy,I’m sure you will be over it soon

So you see jac boy,when you try to belittle people,it just is not creative. If you were confused,all you had to ask :’What is ‘Jackanory’’. Many people here ,I believe,would have responded,especially the Brits.

The Jackanory is for the Cockney to rhyme about'

Thanks for telling me this, John. I looked it up and it seems that it might also mean 'what's the story'

j...Yep,I think you are right, I believe it is a children's storyline using a Cockney accent and it means Jackanory,but I have never seen it.

I see, too, how as soon as one jumps to the defence of another, a 'side' is taken..there does not seem to be a way around this.

j..Seems in be in our nature. Be it the Bibles,Korans,the Mr.K’s teachings etc.I’ve read them all but not as a serious student,there seems to be a great comfort for some in holding fast to their belief ,whatever the choice may be,and this is quite understandable,seeing the complexities of life where most of ones energies or all of it is spent on simple survival and a faint hope /belief, for a reason to be ,holds the soul together. For those of us with time and energy to kick around,as Churchill said:”better to jaw,jaw,jaw than to war,war,war. So keep on a talking until we grow out of it ,which is still possible.

All of this furore

What's the jackanory

j...Hmm,The furore, maybe, is when dialogue fails, or wobbles about,

especially when beliefs are threatened.Each side will

defend its position which can result in rage.If emotionalism

could be held at bay, many people would gain ,and some indeed do,

despite it all. There are others however who dare not even listen,

or perhaps cannot,thus ,lash out randomly.
