Earthquakes. Hurricanes, TORNADOES. Bombs.
1. bombing libya
2. reaction to
radiation possibilities e.g. worst case scenario:
are the Countries all done preparing the lead or concrete etc sarcophagus sarcophagi that Japan will need in a few days if things go south?
surely Our Leaders are thinking, "what is the larger view?"
"hmmm.. Let'see, OK, in another few days this land or that water; these goods, those structures will be no good due to radiation. so, lets harvest what we can before it is wasted. let's move, keeping ahead of the worst case or any case, consequences... "Yes?"
i don't see any evidence of competent long term planning with swift intervention when needed..
if media is evidence,
the answer is no.
The Media, however, surely are running the show. Give us a human interest story about the Fukushima 50 to make us cry,
give us their tweets
but don't report.
your job is To Tease.
TV is the Opiate of the Masses.
On a global level, where is the cooperation? If you say, even with a red face, it's suppose to be the United Nations, one bursts into
Laughter that ends in Anger.
this is the gathering of good men?, the Best, those driven by peace, even self sacrificial men, this is the non-corrupt group, the one that will punish others for being corrupt!-- this is the best, our brightest men and a coupla women in power could come up with?
Don't get me started on the UN.
If one's job was to write a rousing piece about the Glorious United Nations--(you know, insert music from decades ago, that lovely uplifting music that signified a Modern Good United Group that would not allow any bad things to go unaddressed- Swift justice for the Offending Nation: Yay! The U.N.! ----)
See how crazy that sounds! The laughter that ends in Anger.
There is no Meta Prioritizing happening. Where is the Meta Organizing!?

The time is over, are you KIDDING?
What good is movement to "save the people" after the slaughter? Fucryin out loud.
it is no longer an uprising it has become a civil war. who knows where the violence we now inflict will end?
David Brooks PBS NewsHour acted almost mildly surprised that America used to be country taking the lead and now we are not taking the lead. I think bush did that. Did Brooks forget what the current president ran on? we allow our leaders to do what we want them to do or we don't. Give Voice much to your leaders? Rangel and Brownback, did they get your thanks regarding Darfur? Where?
Everyone who is even partially a reporter wonders, why so late on libya, it might have been better, like, um if we moved during the people's uprising? even a peaceful intervention then might have worked. I'm no military expert or humanitarian prize winner but,
Things change, things remain the same.
