The world is not a happy place.

This is a very topic-heavy entry. None of the points are particularly long (only one over a paragraph in length), but I'll lj-cut each of them so you can skip straight to matters of interest.

Interesting observations on Bush's support level outside the US.Collapse )

Private companies bribing politicians.Collapse )

A staggering 220,000 have been confirmed dead in the Asian tsunami disaster. I have provided a rather shocking link in this paragraph that you should visit.Collapse )

In fact, I'm not going to cut that link: Appalling images of the devastating destruction. When I first viewed that, there were 14 images and now there are 20, so it is worth a return for those who have already seen it.

Iraq: the violence today and a brief observation of some history.Collapse )

The Ukrainian election fiasco has finally reached a conclusion.Collapse )

6. DARFUR. darfur_crisis, people! No resolution has been achieved, violence is continuing, and with peace established in the south of Sudan, the government and their sponsored militia are free to focus upon Darfur. Will they focus on peace? Well, there is already evidence that they are doing the opposite and this article cites an increase in violence. This situation has left the headlines but is deteriorating and won't be over soon. It deserves our utmost attention.

On a much lighter note ... U2! And how stellar even their unreleased material is.Collapse )
