Hard to keep track of who is fighting who???

There seems to be so much conflict in the world it’s hard to keep track of who is fighting who.

The Gaza Strip, Syria, Iraq, so much so, that the fate of those Nigerian school girls at the hands of Boko Haram, has slipped from our conscience.

Where we live; it’s easy to shake your head, feel bad, and then decide what’s for dinner.

But when Malaysian Airlines flight  17 was shot down with passengers from so many uninvolved countries, including this one, we all realize how easy it is to get caught up in someone else’s conflict.

The reality of today’s war is, it’s hard to tell the good guys from the bad guys, or where they’re from.

If there is any positive shred of light to come out of this horrific tragedy, it’s made us all very aware of what a global village we live in.

A war in any part of the world, affects us all.

It may take a community to raise a child, but it takes the world to secure its future. Especially nowadays.

Putin looks like a fool....

The rocket attack on Malaysian jet airliner flight 17 is a perfect example of what happens when the intelligence of the weapon supersedes the intelligence of the person in control of it.

Many experts have already stated, when being operated by trained personnel, this weapon is fully capable of detecting friend from foe.

Clearly that didn’t happen here.

Putin has been quietly trying to regain the glory days of the old U.S.S.R. using masked, drunken thugs to try and intimidate Ukraine bit by bit.

He claims he’s not involved with separatists rebels but there is plenty of evidence suggesting otherwise.

On the world stage Putin looks like a rank amateur in the deployment and distribution of such weaponry, especially now trying to avoid any responsibility.

Due to this lack of leadership Putin will now have to answer to world leaders for the loss of life unrelated to the conflict.

He may not have pulled the trigger but he certainly gave them the gun and showed them the direction in which to fire.

One of the basic prerequisites for owning such technology is knowing how and when to use.

It’s evident no such intelligence exists in Putin’s case.

298 dead....

298 people were in the wrong place at the wrong time yesterday.

The place was the troubled border between The Ukraine and Russia, the time was 14:15 local time.

A Malaysian Jet was blown up in the sky, scattering debris and body parts over a wide area.

The same airspace has seen trouble in the past as the Ukraine/Russian conflict escalates below.

Both the Ukraine government and pro-Russian separatists say it was the other guy.

Denying the collateral damage of their stupid war.

History continues to prove, so much to be lost so little to be gained.

We’re seeing it in the Gaza Strip this week, and other parts of the world on a daily basis.

It seems this time Putin’s flexing exercise has now affected those who live in neither country.

It will be interesting to see how the rest of the world responds to the tragic death of these innocent people, caught up in someone else’s war.
