It’s been a while since I last wrote here. Life can be a whirlwind, and to be honest, I had nothing really to say.
I realize that once you start a blog, you must maintain it, like feeding a dog. But the fact was, I dropped the ball.
So, now I’m back. And what has happened since I left?
1. Manchester United beat a pathetic Queens Park Rangers, only to lose to Leicester City, who were 1-3 down. Did I mention how deep the rot of Man U goes? It’s telling that anyone can still believe in this team. Despite nearly $200 million in acquisitioned players, the heart of the team remains weak and indifferent. It still has no defense and no real vision. Look for this team to continue to twaddle. ‘Sweet Lou’ Louis van Gaal fumes now. Man U fans, time to switch to Arsenal!
2. Putin is not done with his real estate acquisition. The Phoney War in Ukraine continues, and will for some time until someone puts a stop to Putin. He will be a thorn on the side of Europe and the United States for some time to come. And no amount of pleading from the Ukraine president in the Congress to get help will change the equation. U.S. President Barack Obama fears Russian President Vladimir Putin, so he will not really come to the rescue of Ukraine. This war will endure for some time.
3. Middle East got muddier. If I were to say that World War III has started, few – if any- would believe me. But in fact, it has. And may have had ever since the U.S. invaded Iraq in 2003. The war escalates now, caused by the madness of the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria. Look for this continue for some time to come. In the photo, please note the ISIS fighter with the Giorgio Armani T-shirt. How is it: ISIS rails against the West, cuts off the heads of its reporters, yet wears its clothes?
4. Scotland did not break off from England. This should not surprise anybody, since most of the time people vote with their pocketbooks. Independence would come at a high price, initially, but in the long run be better for Scotland. But few wanted to pull that trigger. So the status quo remains.
So what has changed since I last wrote here? As you can see, not much. So you did not miss anything!
