40 Days til the World Cup!

Well, technically it's the World Championship. Lebanon plays in the inaugural game against my country of birth, but I doubt the excitement level in the streets of Beirut on that day will match that of the day Ba Ra Zil played Croatia in a dull game decided by a fortunate kick by a dude named Doodoo.

Personally, I think 2 wins in the group stage should be our goal. Then again I spoke with a member of the National Team a couple of weeks ago and they hadn't even began their headbutting drills. They seem to be taking the Brazil approach of just showing up obese and hoping to win it all.

....

Former President Hrawi passed away. He'll be remembered for kissing Claudia Schiffer and signing off on cute little 39% annual interest government loans.

....


Also, I was watching a really funny show on TV earlier with a cute old man who looks to be on his 9th wife and/or heart attack interviewing a cute caring country couple. As I watched I happened to see this cute little news item roll on the screen.

"Israel continues Gaza search for kidnapped soldier."

A cute little game of Hide n' Seek is all it is.

In the same way that "It takes two to Tango" it does require two parties to play the game of "Hide and Seek". There is no doubt that the Israeli response is brutal, inhumane, not proportionate ... but not to have guessed in advance that the Israelis would have , as usual, overreacted and taken advantage of a window of opportunity opened to them by Hamas is naive and childish. No matter what the final outcome of this episode turns out to be, even if it does result in freeing a few hundred Palestinians from Israeli jails , rational people must ask whether that was worth it. It is obvious to this observor that Hamas and other Palestinian "resistance" organizations are the worst thing that has happened to the Palestinian people because they have brought about more death, destruction, misery and squalor than anyone would have thought was possible. Sanity , rationality and logic demand a change in the current procedures of Hamas and the other resistance forces because all their efforts have been based in self destruction. A people that glorifies death, murder and hatred will never now peace.

errr...anonymous,

A simple click of a mouse would solve your lazy question.

Just a guess, but I would think that the boy is from Hugo Chavez's territory...just a guess though.

Out of curiosity, will this be broadcast? I'd be interested in watching.
