Ninety Miles Away

Ninety miles south of Florida a meeting is going on. Two-thirds of the nations on Earth are represented there by their national leaders. That is 66% of the world’s countries. Which is 100% of the pisspot craphole countries of the world who contribute 0% to the overall good and peace and quiet of our world.

There are exceptions ... like India and Pakistan and a few others but the vast majority of these countries are run by tinpot dictators disguised as democracies - and they all seem to hate our guts for some reason. Like we really give a s**t, OK?

If the United States was as mean and evil as they seem to think, we would have solved all of our problems by now. Let’s do the math ... It is 1321 miles from Whiteman AFB at Kansas City, Missouri to Havana Cuba. The B-2 stealth bombers stationed at Whiteman travel at just under Mach One or approximately 700 MPH and they carry tons of nukes.

If the flyboys suit up and take off at 0500 hours, they can be back home sipping coffee and the world will be a whole lot quieter place by the time the TODAY show starts airing at 0700. Well .... I can dream, can’t I?

U.S. and U.N. Bashed At Cuba Summit
HAVANA (Reuters) - Sat Sep 16, 2006 11:16pm ET148

Washington’s biggest enemies, from communist Cuba to North Korea, called on developing nations on Saturday to challenge U.S. dominance through a revived Non-Aligned Movement labeled a Cold War relic by critics. More than 50 heads of state and leaders from over 100 Third World countries, among them Iran and Venezuela, rejected U.S. use of the “axis of evil” label and supported Tehran’s right to nuclear technology for peaceful use.

“American imperialism is in decline. A new, bi-polar world is emerging,” Venezuela’s leftist President Hugo Chavez said. “The non-aligned group has been relaunched to unite the South under its umbrella,” Chavez, who will host a visit in Caracas by Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad on Sunday, told Venezuelan television from Havana.

But governments with friendly ties to Washington, among them India, Pakistan, Malaysia, Chile, Peru and Colombia, sought to steer the summit way from confrontation and finger-pointing at the United States. “I don’t regard this summit as anti-U.S., or for that matter anti-anybody,” Malaysian Prime Minister Abdullah Ahmad Badawi told a news conference.

Cuba, which hosted the summit under the new leadership of Raul Castro because his brother and iconic revolutionary Fidel Castro was still recovering from life-threatening surgery, said the movement was reborn. “The idea that the movement must go beyond statements and take action in international forums has gained force here. Our strength must emerge from our numbers,” Cuban Foreign Minister Felipe Perez Roque. NAM nations are almost two thirds of the UN.

Leaders took turns at the podium to criticize global poverty, unfair trade practices and “arbitrary” actions by powerful nations that—they complained—controlled the United Nations. Some said NAM should be strengthened as an alternative. North Korea took the opportunity to blast the United States for unilateral actions against individual countries and joined the call for a revitalized NAM to raise a united voice.

“The United States is attempting to deprive other countries of even their legitimate right to peaceful nuclear activities,” North Korea’s second-ranking leader, Kim Yong-nam, said. North Korea, which defied international warnings by test-firing ballistic missiles in July, will not return to talks on ending its nuclear programs under growing U.S. sanctions, he said.

Kim, who heads North Korea’s parliament, said in a speech that United States was “abusing the human rights issue” to interfere in the internal affairs of countries not allied to it. The NAM, founded in 1961 by nations that wanted to assert their independence from both Washington and Moscow, backed Iran’s right to development, research and production of nuclear energy. It also urged Iran to continue cooperating with the International Atomic Energy Agency.

Not that very many people ever read this far down, but this blog was the creation of Allan Kelly and his friend Vilmar. Vilmar moved on to his own blog some time ago, and Allan ran this place alone until his sudden and unexpected death partway through 2006. We all miss him. A lot. Even though he is gone this site will always still be more than a little bit his. We who are left to carry on the BMEWS tradition owe him a great debt of gratitude, and we hope to be able to pay that back by following his last advice to us all:
  1. Keep a firm grasp of Right and Wrong
  2. Stay involved with government on every level and don't let those bastards get away with a thing
  3. Use every legal means to defend yourself in the event of real internal trouble, and, most importantly:
  4. Keep talking to each other, whether here or elsewhere
It's been a long strange trip without you Skipper, but thanks for pointing us in the right direction and giving us a swift kick in the behind to get us going. Keep lookin' down on us, will ya? Thanks.

Oh, and here's some kind of visitor flag counter thingy. Hey, all the cool blogs have one, so I should too. The Visitors Online thingy up at the top doesn't count anything, but it looks neat. It had better, since I paid actual money for it.
