I joined here awhile ago but have been busy, and away, and this is my first post. A lot of what I have been reading is about war and hurt and killing and hate. I wanted to post something peaceful, so here ….. above… the universal sign for I love you. If we could only all love one another in some small way, the world would benefit.

Thank you to those who have visited my simple, peaceful blog. And thank you Ahmed ( I hope I have your name correct), for starting this WUB. Judie @

حلمت بها مرات عديده، اخرها كان صباح اليوم!!و رغم اني لا اذكر بداية الحلم جيدا الا انني اذكر انني كنت سائرا في شارعهم الضيق و نظرت لا اراديا لاعلي باتجاه شرفة منزلها فوجدت سيده في الثلاثينيات من العمر ،،اعرفها و اعرف انها ليست قريبتها ،فاتعجبت لوجودها كانها صاحبة المنزل و سالتها عن احوال فتاتي و اين هي الان.و لانها تزوجت فقد شعرت بارتباك في سؤالي و لاحظت الشابه ذلك .فاخبرتني انها في المحل او الدكان و لم اكن اعرف ان لها دكانا لاني اعرف انها مغتربه في الخليج مع زوجها فسالت عن الدكان مشتاقا لرؤياها مره اخري ،،فقد مضت سنين و لم اراها .لكن يبدو ان السيده لم يعجبها الحاحي في السؤال و حدثتني بحديث لم اسمعه لانه كان همسا و مشيت بعدها مطاطيء الراس و بعدها قمت من النوم

Krishna Janmashtami (Devanagari कृष्ण जन्माष्टमी) , also known as “Krishnashtami”, “Gokulashtami”, “Ashtami Rohini”, “Srikrishna Jayanti”, “Sree Jayanthi” or sometimes merely as “Janmashtami”, is a Hindu festival celebrating the birth of Krishna, the eighth avatar (incarnation) of Vishnu.

Krishna Janmashtami is observed on the eighth day of the dark half (Krishna Paksha) of the month of Shraavana in the Hindu calendar, when the Rohini Nakshatram is ascendent. The Hindu calendar being lunar, these two events [the day being the eighth of the waning moon (Krishna-paksha Ashtami) and the Rohini Nakshatram being ascendent] may overlap for only a few hours. In such an event, the festival may be celebrated on different (but successive) days by different people, depending on their local or family traditions.
The festival falls sometime in the months of August/September of the Gregorian calendar. In 2006, Krishnashtami was celebrated on August 15 or August 16.
In 2007, Krishnaashtami will be celebrated on September 4.



dictatorship? what dictatorship?

Filed under: Uncategorized — looking4good @ 12:05 pm

whenever faced with questions like “where are those wmd’s you told us about”? or “what are acheiving in iraq”? the neocon adminstration would repeat the same argument “arent you glad that we’ve rid the iraqi people and the world from a brutal dictator”?a dictator? hmmm,that’s weird ,because for someone who knows as little about history as i do , i can recall the following:this us backed and still back a neighbour of iraq named saudi arabia, the prison state, a corrupt monarchy who just happen to be this president as well as his dad’s business associates.and just to the north of iraq there’s another dictatorship called the jordanian royal family who is also backed by the us for a clear and simple reason , they are best friends with israel.not to mention ofcourse the dictatorship in egypt that receives the second largest us aid.on the other hand, the same adminstration that was so concerned with democracy to the extent that it invaded a soverign country in order to impose it , engineered a coup d’etat in 2002 against an elected president called hugo chavez.not to mention its ongoing demonization of another elected president , iran’s ahmedi najad who got 60% of the votes of his people (that’s more than george bush ever got, even by an election fraud)some people may call this “selective morality” i call it what it is : hypocrisy and double standards.


The War Criminal in the Living Room

Filed under: Uncategorized — looking4good @ 10:37 am
by Paul Craig Roberts
The media is silent, Congress is absent, and Americans are distracted as George W. Bush openly prepares aggression against Iran.

US Navy aircraft carrier strike forces are deployed off Iran.
US Air Force jets and missile systems are deployed in bases in countries bordering or near to Iran.
US B-2 stealth bombers have been refitted to carry 30,000 pound “bunker buster” bombs.
The US government is financing terrorist and separatist groups within Iran.
US Special Forces teams are conducting terrorist operations inside Iran.
US war doctrine has been altered to permit first strike nuclear attack on Iran and other non-nuclear countries.
Bush’s war threats against Iran have intensified during the course of this year. The American people are being fed a repeat of the lies used to justify naked aggression against Iraq.
Bush is too self-righteous to see the dark humor in his denunciations of Iran for threatening “the security of nations everywhere” and of the Iraqi resistance for “a vision that rejects tolerance, crushes all dissent, and justifies the murder of innocent men, women, and children in the pursuit of political power.” Those are precisely the words that most of the world applies to Bush and his Brownshirt administration. The Pew Foundation’s world polls show that despite all the American and Israeli propaganda against Iran, the US and Israel are regarded as no less threats to world stability than demonized Iran.
Bush has discarded habeas corpus and the Geneva Conventions, justified torture and secret trials, damned critics as anti-American, and is responsible, according to Information Clearing House, for over one million deaths of Iraqi civilians, which puts Bush high on the list of mass murderers of all time. The vast majority of “kills” by the US military in Iraq and Afghanistan are civilians.
Now Bush wants to murder more. We have to kill Iranians “over there,” Bush says, “before they come over here.” There is no possibility that Iranians or any Muslims who have no air force, no navy, no modern military technology are going to “come over here,” and no indication that they plan to do so. The Muslims are disunited and have been for centuries. That is what makes them vulnerable to colonial rule. If Muslims were united, the US would already have lost its army in Iraq. Indeed, it would not have been able to put an army in Iraq.
Meanwhile the US media focuses on whether Republican Senator Larry Craig is a homosexual or has offended gays by denying to be one of them. The run-up for the public’s attention is why a South Carolina beauty queen cannot answer a simple question about why her generation is unable to find the United States on a map.
The war criminal is in the living room, and no official notice is taken of the fact.
Lacking US troops with which to invade Iran, the Bush administration has decided to bomb Iran “back into the stone age.” Punishing air and missile attacks have been designed not merely to destroy Iran’s nuclear energy projects, but also to destroy the public infrastructure, the economy, and the ability of the government to function.
Encouraged by the indifference of both the American media and Christian churches to the massive casualties inflicted on Iraqi civilians, the Bush administration will not be deterred by the prospect of its air attacks inflicting massive casualties on Iranian civilians. Last summer the Bush administration demonstrated to the entire world its total disdain for Muslim life when Bush supported Israel’s month-long air attack on Lebanese civilian infrastructure and civilian residences. President Bush blocked the attempt by the rest of the world to halt the gratuitous murder of Lebanese civilians and infrastructure destruction. Clearly, turning the Muslim Middle East into a wasteland is the Bush policy. For Bush, civilian casualties are a non-issue. Hegemony uber alles.
The Bush administration has made its war plans for attacking Iran and positioned its forces without any prior approval from Congress. The “unitary executive” obviously doesn’t believe that an attack on Iran requires the approval of Congress. By its absence and quietude, Congress seems to agree that it has no role in the decision.
In the improbable event that Congress were to make any fuss about Bush’s decision to attack yet another country, the State Department has devised legalistic cover: simply declare Iran’s military to be a “terrorist organization” and go to war under the cover of the existing resolution.
The “Iran issue” has been created by the Bush administration, not by Iran. Iran, like many other countries, has a nuclear energy program to which it is entitled as a signatory to the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty. Inspectors of the International Atomic Energy Agency have found no evidence of a nuclear weapons program in Iran.
The Bush administration has brushed away this fact, which should be determining, just as the Bush administration brushed away the fact that weapons inspectors reported, prior to Bush’s invasion of Iraq, that there were no weapons of mass destruction in Iraq.
The Bush administration managed to disrupt the work of the pesky IAEA weapons inspectors in Iran. Iran has been working successfully with the IAEA and has achieved what a senior IAEA official recently described as a milestone agreement. The Bush administration instantly went to work to discredit the agreement and unleashed its new lapdog, French President Nicolas Sarkozy, to threaten “the bombing of Iran.”
The Bush administration’s position is legally untenable and is really nothing but a contrived excuse to start another war. Bush claims that Iran, alone among all the signatories of the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty, must be denied its right under the pact to develop nuclear energy, because Iran, alone among all the other signatories, will be the only country able to deceive the IAEA inspectors and develop nuclear weapons. Therefore, Iran must be denied its rights under the agreement.
Bush’s position on the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty is as legally untenable as his position on every other issue – the Geneva Conventions, the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act, habeas corpus, the constitutional separation of powers, and presidential signing statements that he cavalierly attaches to new laws in order to override the legislative power of Congress. Bush’s position is that the meaning of laws and treaties varies with his needs of the moment.
Bush has declared himself to be the “decider.” The “decider” decides whether Americans have any rights under the Constitution and whether Iran has any rights under the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty. As the “decider” has decided that Iran has no such rights, the “decider” decides whether to attack Iran. No one else has any say about it. The people’s representatives are just so much chaff in the wind.
Whatever form of government Bush is operating under, it is far outside an accountable constitutional democratic government. Bush has transitioned America to caesarism, and even if Bush leaves office in January 2009, the powers he has accumulated in the executive will remain. Unless Bush and Cheney are impeached and convicted, there is no prospect of the US Congress and federal judiciary ever again being co-equal branches of government.

Does USA really help terroristic Zionism ?

Hello everyone from around the world. its nice to be back again been away from the computer for about a week. anyway i would like to share to you a recipe of one of the famous filipino food the “Adobo”. Adobo perhaps, is the most popular and most distinguished among all Filipino cuisines. It has been made reference to in the movie American Adobo and been mention in Black Eyed Peas Song “Bebot” it is a favorite among Filipino food. and among my favorite food too. just like pasta there are varieties of ways on how to cook adobo The most widely preferred traditionally is pork adobo, followed by chicken adobo— although chicken adobo is very popular these days for health reasons. Other ingredients such as squid, beef, lamb, game fowl like quail and snipe, catfish, okra, eggplant, string beans, and water spinach (kangkong) are also made into adobo, so if you haven’t tried adobo yet go to your nearest Filipino Restaurant or go here in the Philippines to give it a try and i guarantee you will not regret it. anyway if its impossible for you to visit Philippines and the Filipino restaurants is miles away from you. just do it on your own as it is very easy to cook. here is the recipe on how to cook your very own adobo.

How To Cook

  * 1/2 kilo pork or chicken, cut in cubes for pork and cut in
pieces if chicken
* 1 head garlic, crushed
* 1 cup soy sauce
* 1 cup vinegar
* 2 cups of water
* 5 laurel leaves (bay leaves)
* 4 tablespoons of cooking oil or olive oil
* Whole Peppercorns
* Ginger (if cooking chicken or with chicken)

* Combine all ingredients in a pot.
* Let it simmer and boil until almost all the water is gone.
If you did not trim the fat off the pork, let the natural
oils of off it come out. You may add some cooking oil or
olive oil if there isn't enough to fry the meat.
* The meat will be very tender so be careful mixing it while
letting it fry on its own fat (or added oil) so the meat
doesn't fall apart or break.
* Viola! It's done!!! Enjoying your adobo with rice and fresh
tomatoes (optional).

student victim ‘wished he was dead’

Filed under: peace — looking4good @ 4:31 am

Premathas Premkumar,14

Premathas Premkumar, 14, a student who lost both legs in the Sri Lanka Air Force (SLAF) bombing on the fishing hamlet in A’ampil July 11, in an interview to Tamilnet Monday, said that attending school has become impossible and added, “I regret I had not been killed in the attack, as I would not have been a burden to my family which is already poor.”
Premkumar from the hospital bed told how he was injured.

“I was at the shore that day to help my father in the Vaadi hut. As he was going home for lunch, I too followed soon to join him. It was then I heard the sound the Kfir. Everyone started running and I saw a Kfir diving close to the spot above where I was. Before I could fall flat on the ground a bomb exploded hurling me several feet into the air.

“When the sounds subsided I found my friend Selvakumar severely wounded lying close to me . We both had shared Jack fruit some ten minutes earlier. I rose to help but couldn’t; I realized parts of both my legs were missing.

“Kfirs made another bombing run.

“I buried my head in the sand and did not hear the explosion. When I lifted my head up, I saw everyone running and screaming. No one noticed me and I tried to shout, but I could hardly make any sound.

“It was then I felt a burning sensation in my body.

“I did not know what to do. I wanted the Kfir to strike again to kill me. Then I felt someone lifting me up before I lost consciousness.

“When I woke I found myself on the hospital bed. My parents stood close weeping. My father had high hopes that I would study and provide support to my family. Now all his hopes are shattered.

“My father told me of the movement’s financial support. This has given me strength and inspiration. But I am enraged on thinking about the Government’s attacks on people like us.

“My father said that they are now forced to live under the shade of a big Banniyan tree at Kumizhamunai village and Kfirs still continue to hit civilian settlements. I hope things will change on the ground soon so that my family can go back to normal life.

Premkumar faces a long period of recovery, and an uncertain future
