Shana Tova and Ramadan Kareem!

Happy New Year, people! May it be one of prosperity, peace, interesting things and lots of tasty food!

And in case you're Muslim - Ramadan Kareem!

This is shaping up to be yet another turbulent year. Could be the herald of disaster or the early breeze of good change; too early to know, but it's always good to ponder.

So, what presents did we get for the New Year/Ramadan?

The most relevant to your truly is the IAF bombing targets in Syria and all the brouhaha around it.

The bombed site was, apparently, a joint North Korean-Iranian installation. The Syrians had no idea what was going on there (the place was "leased" to Iran) and were extremely surprised both by the bombing and by the fact that the site was, apparently, some sort of a nuclear installation.

Another interesting bit about this incident is the Turkish reaction and involvement - apparently, Turkish Armed Forces (TAF) assisted IAF in this operation without the knowledge of the government. I'd say that this was a message more than anything - to Syria that Turkey is ever vigilant, to Israel and USA that Turkey is a staunch ally, to the Turkish government that they're at TAF's mercy. All in all, from TAF's and IAF's point of view, this was a huge success.

Combine this with the reports of USA preparing for a massive strike against Iran, various high-up members of the Knesset urging for such and the recent mewlings of ElBaradei... the picture becomes very interesting indeed.

On the other hand, we have Olmert (AKA The Chief Worm) apparently planning something even more horrible than the Oslo Disaster. According to the reports, he wants to give our dear Arab cousins everything; the only question remaining is whether we'll build concentration/extermination camps for ourselves or tie ourselves down so that our dear cousins can have some fun with us before we die.

Will this cretin be able to implement his mad plan before his Government of Worms is removed from power? Will something else happen before this mad capitulation can occur - such as our dear cousins jumping the gun again, a massive war in the Middle East, a nuclear/chemical/biological strike against Israel, the people of Israel waking up and hanging the worms?

No way of knowing. But it sure shapes up to be an interesting year :)

The Swing

How do you like to go up in a swing,

Up in the air so blue?

Oh, I do think it the pleasantest thing

Ever a child can do.


Up in the air and over the wall,

Till I can see so wide,
River and trees and cattle and all

Over the countryside


Till I look down on the garden green

Down on the roof so brown
Up in the air I go flying again

Up in the air and down!
