Real life

Sometimes when I accidentally turn on the radio when George W. is speaking, and actually bear with him a few seconds before I have to turn it off for my own good, I find it amazing that this man actually exists–a true, fully blown version of the emperor without clothes. With time, it seems he doesn’t quite remember to act solemnly when he should, of course as a human, but also as a politician. So on Thursday a couple of weeks ago, when I was driving to classes, he was giving his sympathies to Londoners, but he sounded excited, gleeful. Read what he said here.

It seems Blair is becoming W. Not that he seems to be happy at the thought of terrorists, but he also believes the threat of terrorism justifies everything else. This is what he had to say about the shooting of that innocent man (see last post):

“To the family I can only express our deepest regrets,” Blair said today in an interview on Sky News. “We have terrorists using suicide as a weapon on the streets of London and below the streets of London. What we have to recognize is that people are taking incredibly difficult, fast-timed decisions in life-threatening situations.”

Expressing regrets is the only thing you can do? You can’t even back your regrets with an inquiry? You can’t express outrage? Can you cry?

Allah says, “Be sure we shall test you with something of fear and hunger, some loss in goods or lives or the fruits (of your toil), but give glad tidings to those who patiently persevere” (2:155).

  1. I couldn’t bare looking at GWB’s face. Whenever he is on tv, in the news, I would grab my remote & watch something else. If there was a live telecast on both CNN & BBC, I’d rather watch Travel Channel, at least I’d learn about other people, culture, tradition, heritage & religion!
