Nine countries united to vote against a U.N. resolution condemning Trump’s decision to recognize Jerusalem as Israel’s capital and move the U.S. Embassy there from Tel Aviv.

Here are the nine:

  1. USA
  2. Israel 
  3. Micronesia
  4. Nauru
  5. Togo and Tonga 
  6. Palau
  7. The Marshall Islands
  8. Guatemala
  9. Honduras

There you have it. These seven countries knelt under the wrath of American power but they should continue to receive handouts from the U.S. BTW, have you ever heard of Nauru or Palau? I certainly don’t.

35 countries voted abstain which in essence were YES votes. If they thought Trump has done the right thing, they would have voted NO like UN9 did. Among them were Canada, Australia, Mexico, Rwanda and Uganda. Trump probably won’t ask Mexico to pay for the wall after Mexico’s vote. Canada will continue export its heavy oil to the U.S. I am not sure what the U.S. said to Uganda and Rwanda which made them not follow the majority’s action.

Haley’s verbal threat before the vote, ‘we’ll be taking names’, finally showed what America really is to the world: a bully, a vengeful weasel and an imperious thug.

Well, if the U.S. wants to cut off foreign aids to these countries, so be it. China probably will be more than happy to take up the slack.

Of course, not a single Muslim country voted with the U.S. and Trump’s move simply will fan more hatreds from muslims against the U.S. and Israel. 

What has Trump gained from this move other than fulfiled a campaigm promise to a small group of people? 

But, at what price will America and American people pay for this modern day crusade against the muslims? 

It is obvious that American foreign policy has incite a long strings of hostile moves and suicide attacks against American interests in the U.S. and abroad since the 1993 World Trade Center truck bombing and the 2001 9-11 suicide attacks.

Will we see more attacks from the Muslims against the U.S. because Trump’s move is a perfect material for future recuitment by al-qaeda and other Islamic groups.

Gone are the horses, swords, Shamshirs, halberds, bows, crossbows, arrows and spears. Todays, the weapons of choice are drones, fighter jets, Hellfire missiles, PGMs, IEDs and suicide bombs jackets. 

One thing is for sure with Trump’s decision to officially recognize Jerusalem as Israel’s capital, the war between Muslims and the U.S. will continue and intensify.

It may last another thousand years.

And who is at fault? September 28, 2017

Who is responsible for the world going to hell in a handbasket? 

Who do you think is the culprit?

There can be no doubt that Trump, his advisors and his supportors are largely responsible for the current mess in the world. So, go ahead, Trump, keeps stirring up the pot with your tweets and makes America the enemy of the world.

But, China is doing fine, thank you very much. 

The U.S. was solely responsible for the Great Recession because America, including the Wall Street bankers, the Fed, the regulators, the Congress, the banks and thousands of greedy investors, created the subprime mortgage loan crisis and the subsequent financial crisis.

Now, Trump is dividing the country up into multiple classes and makes people from different classes hate each other. 

Trump didn’t stop there. Here is a list of things Trump has done and wanted to do since 1/20/2017:

  • got out of TPP, 
  • got out of the Paris Accord,
  • weakened NATO, 
  • re-negotiated NAFTA, 
  • wanted to get rid of Iran nuclear deal, 
  • asked American allies, such as Japan, Korea, Germany, France, just to name a few, to pay for protections they have received from the U.S., 
  • threatened fire and fury on Kim Jong En and total destruction to North Korea and its people,
  • sent more U.S. troops to Afghanistan, 
  • put more sanctions on Russia and Venezuela,
  • wanted to keep muslims out of the U.S. with a travel ban,
  • wanted to build a wall to keep Mexicans and latinos from entering the America, and,
  • get rid of Dreamers. 

It is obvious that Trump is distructive, un-trustworthy and is a person no one, e.g., Mercel of Germany, can do business with.

The political mess in Washington and the stalemate on Britexit in England make one wonder that democracy is probably at the end of its usefulness. I certainly do not think democracy promoted by the U.S. is a viable option to govern. It created disfranchised classes and made national policies the hostages of special interest groups, lobbyists and wealthy donators. 

So, is Trump’s government good for American people? 

I say that it is not. 

What do you think?

Is it possible that America is starring at the onset of a culture revolution American style which is instigated by Trump and encouraged by Trump’s supportors?

You tell me.

The following is some of my thoughts on the divisiveness of Trump the person and his policies. I am trying to draw parallels between the political landscapes in the U.S. and that in Taiwan. I finished my thoughts on the U.S. and I am still working on my viewpoints on Taiwan. 

It was written in Chinese.

分裂

一個分裂的社會是一個停滯不前或著逐步落後的社會。

當政客把階級之間的矛盾作為一個競選的武器,這個矛盾的心理障礙極有可能會演變成階級鬥爭,而這個政府就會被少數的極端分子而左右。這樣的社會一定會動盪不安,人心會猜疑惶恐。這個社會的經濟就會變成投資報酬低落,人才長期外流,競爭優勢下降,經濟成長衰退,薪資不漲反退的窘境。

兩百多年以來,美國一直是一個種族分裂的社會。南北戰爭以後,黑人不再為奴。雖然馬丁路德金在20世紀中爲黑人爭取了法律上平等的地位,可是黑人仍然被白人歧視,壓迫,而白人和黑人之間的直接衝突也一直沒有間斷過。這種種族分裂已經持續兩個世紀了。 雖然美國有法律保障黑人和少數民族(拉丁美洲人和東方人)的福利,可是這只是政客的表面文章。私底下,白人還是看不起黑人和其他人種,這也是黑人和少數民族繼續被歧視的主要原因。

美國黑人長期以來被白人不停的壓迫,但是這個”階級鬥爭”在白人的主流意志統治之下並沒有對整個美國經濟有太多的負面影響。原因是白人當政,黑人(東方人)的影響力太低的緣故。

不過,美國這種白人至上的情況從 2001 年以來已經受到根本的威脅,因為除了黑白衝突以外,美國還經過許多內外夾擊的改變:

。2001 的 911 事件,

。阿富汗和伊拉克戰爭,

。2005 年的房地產泡沫,

。2009 年由美國引起的世界經濟財務危機,

。歐巴馬和茜拉蕊的反蘇俄,反中國外交政策,

。歐巴馬任內將美國推向極端的自由派陣營,

。川普的’美國至上’其實是’白人至上’的偽裝。

這些事件的發生使美國成為一個嚴重分裂的社會。目前,美國有好幾個尖銳的社會衝突。這些衝突在少數政客,保守派和自由派名嘴和網路政治言論的引導之下把美國社會搞得四分五裂:

1。財富不均的分裂;1% 和 99% 的對立,

2。美國白人對黑人的歧視,

3。美國白人對穆斯林教派人的歧視,

4。美國白人對墨西哥和拉丁美洲人的歧視,

5。美國白人對中國人和印度人的歧視,

6。美國保守派和自由派意識形態的分裂。

這些衝突的直接產物就是川普的當選,美國”白人至上”意志的抬頭,也是美國保守派白人的最後掙扎。美國的經濟也在這些衝突之中受到負面的影響,導致GDP成長率下降,聯邦政府入不敷出,國家債務提升,政府政策停滯不前,美金購買力下降,美國也逐漸的喪失了它在世界上的影響力和競爭力。

With more bombs, missile strikes and drone killings of innocent muslims by America and western forces’ killing machines, the hatred against the U.S. and some western countries will only increase and the subsequent revenges will likely continue for years if not centuries. 

The U.S. calls these people terrorists but what do these people call America?

America is proud of their killing machines and its military might.

It never ends for a simple reason.

So many muslims have lost sons, daughters, parents, relatives and friends in the hands of powerful American weapons. It is difficult to image the pain and suffering endured by these muslims.
America should review its foreign policy on Israel, re-evaluate its relationship with Iran, Iraq, Saudi Arabia and all other muslim countries in the Middle East and abandon nations building practices in every continents of the world. 

The U.S. is killing people. The ISI is killing people. America has had its shares of killings over the years.

When will the killing of innocent muslims stop?

Death of innocent children is collateral damage to Pentagon. To Trump and American generals, it is, for the sake of national security, inevitable but necessary.

America’s national interests sometimes equal to killing members of the ISIS and innocent civilians because they are at the wrong place at the wrong time.

Regime change and subsequent nations building with hand-picked candidate are necessary steps to maintain America supremacy in a region.

Economic sanctions and financial control are powerful tools used by America to subvert other nations to obey America’s demands. These tools seldom worked but they always make lives of the people of those countries miserable.

To the muslims, the so-called war on terror is the modern version of crusade. To G.W. Bush after 9-11 and Trump now, the war on terror is a crusade but they just can’t admit it in the public. 

Instead of bows and arrows in the past, America now has missiles equipped with warheads, drones with air to ground missiles and C-130 with MOAB. Instead of horses, America now has Apach helicopters, F-35s stealth fighter, B-52 Stratofortress, destroyers capable of launching cruise missiles, submarines and air carriers.

What do muslims have to fight against the U.S. and other western countries? Guns, IEDs and themselves.

How did the world end up in the situation which we are in right now and how can we get out of the death spiral of self destruction?

I don’t know. Do you?

Do Americans even care? March 25, 2017

Yeah, the Pentagon said that there will be an investigation about civilian deaths in the hands of U.S.-led airstrike in a western neighborhood in Mosul.

Then what? An apology by a Pentagon spokesman is probably all American people will hear six months later. But do American people even care what’s going on in Iraq? Probably not. They care more about Kadashine’s next bf than how many Iraqis got killed by American bombs and missiles.

However, Iraqi people and a lot of people in the Middle East will remember every death in the hands of the U.S. government.

Hatred against the U.S. in the Muslim world perpetuates.

天龍八部插曲 痴情冢

閑來無事把金庸的天龍八部連續劇再看一遍。才開始看,還有一陣子。雖然這個2013的版本並不受觀眾歡迎,可是我還是蠻喜歡的,也很喜歡它的插曲。聽了這首”痴情塚”,被它哀怨無奈的歌詞和悲傷婉轉的旋律吸引住了。

希望你也喜歡。

記得我初中的時候,我們家從五權路的公益社搬到北屯國小對面的北屯新村(後來改成凌雲新村)。我起先是走路上學,由北屯路開始,順著雙十路,經過臺中公園,順著自由路到市立台中一中。放學後,在回來的路上,精武路邊有一個小小的書店擺了一大堆舊書。我這些窮學生就跟其他幾個窮學生一樣天天準時報到,在這個書店裏看不要錢的武俠小說。

後來坐公車上下學,就不來這個舊書店了。不過,天無絕人之路,下課後,我們需要去火車站對面的公車中心搭公車回家。在中正路的北邊,快要到火車站的地方有一個更大的書店,我這個窮學生又找到一個不要錢,不用會員證的免費圖書舘。當然,我不是看參考書,也不看課外讀物,一到這裏就找昨天看過的那一本書,翻到上次看到的地方,繼續往下看。如此,日積月累,許多有名的武俠小說都給我看完了。依稀還記得名字的作者有金庸,臥龍生,古龍,梁羽生,諸葛青雲,等等。至於書名那早就忘記了。

現在大陸影視界非常發達,許多省和一級城市都有電視和電影公司,電影和電視劇沒多久就有新的問世。再加上,許多影視網站都不要錢,隨時想看,隨時有。實在方便。很多有名的武俠電影和電視劇都看過幾次了。想當初,蹲在地上和站在書攤邊上看不要錢的武俠小說,真是不可同日而語呀。

抽空聽一聽這首美麗的歌吧。

痴情冢 – 贾青

眼里柔情都是你 ,
爱里落花水飘零。
梦里牵手都是你 ,
命里纠结无处醒 。
今生君恩还不尽 ,愿有来生化春泥 。
雁过无痕风有情 ,生死两忘江湖里 。

人前笑语花相映
人后哭泣倩谁听
偏生爱的都是你
谁错谁对本无凭
今生君恩还不尽 ,愿有来生化春泥
雁过无痕风有情 ,生死两忘江湖里

至於電視劇中那幾個主角,他們痴情到不可理喻的地步在現在已經不多見了。

你說痴情好還是放得下好?

是愛人但不被愛好還是被愛卻不愛他好?

天龍八部有非常濃郁的佛家思想。但是,天底下真正看得開,放得下的有幾個呢?

可是,話說回來,天底下又有幾個會跟電視劇裏的主角一樣那麽痴情,那麽執著的呢?

看來鑽牛角尖的比較多吧。

The United States official position on the execution of a prominent Shia cleric Nimr al-Nimr by Saudi Arabia Is this:

Particularly Concerned

That’s it.

No condemnation. Nothing critical. No disapproval. Just concerned. Particularly.

America the hypocrite is particularly good at using double standard on carrying out its foreign policy.

One standard for its friends.

Another one for its enemies.

Senator Murphy’s faulty logic November 22, 2015

Senator C. Murphy, Dem.-Conn. is not making sense. He said that he opposed sending American ground troops to fight against ISIS for one simple reason:

He voiced his opinion in a USA Today opinion piece on Nov. 19, 2015.

However, Senator Murphy is not making sense at all! It appears that the good Senator from Connecticut thinks bombing ISIS and killing innocent muslims in Syria and Iraq will make ISIS hates the US less than killing them in the trenches.

What a joke, Senator C. Murphy!

Bombing ISIS will make them hide from American bombs and missiles  and will probably make them faking as displaced immigrants and move to a  safer place such as Europe and the US. They simply will wait it out for a latter date to make their moves.

It is easily understood that the biggest target for ISIS is the United States.

Bombing them will delay the attacks. Killing them all will prevent them.

This is common sense and the Senator from Connecticut just doesn’t get it.

A typical anti-war liberal.

Obama handed nuclear weapons to Iran August 27, 2015

A few years later, American people will wake up to the fact that Obama allowed Iran’s Revolutionary Guard to investigate Iran’s compliance with the nuclear deal he engineered as the over riding factor which will make Iran a country with nuclear weapons.

This was one of the four secret deals that Obama and Kerry didn’t tell American people about when the deal was signed. It was the reason Iran agreed to the deal because America will never find out the truth. 

When it does, which will not take 15 years, it will be too late.

Yes, the path for military confrontation has been set. The seeds for a war has been planted.

Israel will carry out the targeted attack unilaterally. America will have no option but to join the fight because Iran has vowed repeatedly to wipe Israel from the world map and defeat the worst infidel in the world, the United States.

Yet, Obama chose to talk to Iran and appeased the country with a deal Iran couldn’t refuse. He and other democrats called it diplomacy but it was acturally selling American people short and handed America to Iran on a siliver plate.

Americans are naive and complacent.

This time it will be no different. But the negative consequence of Obama’s action will be incalculable. It will definitely accelerate America’s downfall.

Clinton, a democrat, kind of dispatched Carter, a democrat, to North Korea to negotiate a nuclear weapon freeze treaty with Kim Il Sung. After months of talk, North Korea and the U.S. signed a so-called Agreed Framework by which North Korea would freeze its nuclear weapon development program in exchange for aids. After Carter briefed Clinton on the agreement at the White House in 1994, Carter proudly declared: “I personally believe the crisis is over, and I personally believe Kim Il Sung wants to be sure that the crisis is over.” (Source: Los Angeles Times; June 20, 1994)

Practically, the minute Carter left Pyongyang, North Korea resumed its nuclear weapon development program and today North Korea is a nuclear nation with ballistic missile technology. South Korea, which is protected by U. S. troops, faces a real threat of total destruction from its neighbor to the north.

North Korea played Clinton and Carter like a pair of clowns.

Fast forward to 2015.

Obama, a democrat, dispatched Kelly, a democrat, to negotiate a nuclear weapon freeze treaty with Iran’s president, Hassan Rouhani.

After months of negotiation, Kelly in March 2015 said that Iran and essentially the U.S. would sign a deal ‘inshallah” which was Arabic for “Allah willing.”

Source: Laura Rozen, http://www.teaparty.org/john-kerry-nuke-deal-iran-allah-wills-91978/

A few days ago, a deal between Iran and the United States was reached and the two nations will be friends again. Iran will stop the development of its nuclear weapon program in exchange for $150 billion of foreign assets frozen by the U.S. and its allies and other relieves most notably its export of crude oil to the world market. Iran is said to have to stop the program development for some 10 or few years and there will be no “anytime, anywhere” inspections because Kelly and Obama believe that this kind of inspection is not feasible. Iran can have weeks to prepare for IAEA inspection if Iran feels like it.

Things look real good, isn’t it?

But wait, Hassan Rouhani isn’t in charge. Iran’s supreme leader, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei is. Here is what Khamenei has to say about Iran’s dealing with the U.S.:

Obama wants a deal with Iran. He got a great one from Ayatollah Ali Khamenei.

Obama wants a deal with Iran. He got a great one from Ayatollah Ali Khamenei.

I think Ayatollah Ali Khamenei played Obama and Kelly like a pair of clowns.

 

North Korea signed a deal with the U.S. in 1994. It took North Korea 8 years to become a nuclear nation.

Iran signed a deal with the U.S. in 2015. It will take Iran fewer than 8 years to develop a nuclear weapon unless Israel does something about it.

馬英九是外省人。馬英九骨子裏是統一派。只是他不敢講。他想做所有人的總統。他怕人罵他。他沒膽。

王金平是本省人。王金平骨子裏是獨立派。只是他不敢講。他想做所有人的立法院長。他怕丟選票。他要錢。

國民黨去年全省大選一敗塗地,黨的元氣大傷,江山幾乎丟光了。搞得沒人敢在2016出來代表國民黨競選總統,因為這一仗很可能會輸的很慘。怕死的不吭聲。算計的不吭聲。說過不選總統的也不吭聲。大家關起門來大眼瞪小眼不知道怎麽辦,也沒人知道馬英九葫蘆裏買的是什麼藥。沒人敢出頭就怕捱罵:黨裏面的人罵,民進黨的立委罵,電視上的名嘴罵的更兇。狗血噴頭臉和皮都剝光了。

王金平很想出來代表國民黨選2016的總統因為做總統有好處。他的同黨拼命的鼓吹他出來選因為:他的人緣好,知名度高,和馬英九貌和神離,同時還能拿到一些民進黨的票。再說王金平做總統,國民黨的本土派抬頭,王金平可以拿大錢,他們拿小錢,何樂不為。可是王金平一直不出來因為他知道馬英九和黨裏面的統一派不會支持他。可是你我都知道王金平不是省油的燈。他左看右看,面帶笑容,模稜兩可。但是他私底裏佈局,做民調,打電話,拿關係,算選票。前幾天,他的功課總算做好了,他投石問路,公開的説:’國民黨要徵召我出來選2016 總統,我義不容辭.’
一副’犧牲小我完成大我’的模樣,頂著’我不入地獄誰入地獄’的光環,爲黨買命,為國國犧牲。

馬英九不願意看到王金平變成國民黨的總統候選人是眾所周知的。馬英九要把王金平搞下台有他的理由。可是馬英九自己不爭氣搞的他自己一臉灰。要是王金平做台灣的總統那馬英九下台以後的日子就難過了。王金平要出來馬英九也不吭氣大家都拿他沒辦法。

洪秀柱是國民黨的統一派。她看不慣國民黨不吭氣的作風,自己宣佈出來選總統。王金平根本沒把她看在眼裡:她沒底子,沒後台,沒人脈,沒錢,沒勢力,沒組織,沒有人會選她。對高高在上的王金平來說,洪秀柱只是一個跑龍套打邊鼓的角色。

誰知道,洪秀柱在台灣的民調’破磚’得了46%,超過門檻的30%。

這下子好了:國民黨沒法放下臉,不提洪秀柱出來代表國民黨選總統。

對王金平來說:半路殺出一個統一派的洪咬金,打的王金平屁滾尿流有苦說不出。王金平的如意算盤不靈了。國民黨的本土派至少四年不見天日了。

洪咬金真厲害。
