Yo, Blair.. and more

Yo, Blair!

On July 17th, 2006, and particularly during the G8 summit in St Petersburg, Russia, the leaders of the two most powerful countries were discussing the crisis in the Middle East over lunch. As this was a private time, all the guests’ microphones were off, except one!! President Bush and Tony Blair voices were picked on video as they expressed their frustration about the crisis in the Middle East, unaware that a microphone nearby was on.

Bush tells Blair that he likes the sweater Blair chose for him personally, noisily chews on a buttered role, whilst swearing about Hezbollah, and referring to Syrian President Bashar-al-assad .. as Bashad. He confides to Tony that he's annoyed that other leaders "talk for too long" because he wants to go home and most amusingly summons him with the greeting "Yo Blair". (Faisal Isalam report, Channel 4 news, UK)

But how did this happen? Was it an accident? An electrical malfunction? Maybe!

Or maybe not!

The Russian President, Valdimir Putin, was seen, by Channel 4 team, smiling wryly at his seat with the red light on his microphone lights up!!

Thought of the Day

When Israel agreed to halt air strikes for 48 hour, no UN, International, Lebanese or Arab rescue workers were sent to Southern Lebanon. Everyone was afraid for their lives and skeptical about Israel’s intentions. Isn't that a suitable situation for the Mojahedeen who want to bomb themselves and go to heaven?!!

ذكرى 2/8

بعد ستة عشر عامًا ، مازلت يا كويت حرة ومازال شعبك أبيّا .. زاد عدد شهدائك ، وأصبح البعض منهم منسيّا ... فأين أنتَ يا بدر، وهل ما زلت بين زملائك حيّا؟!!

    Interesting news story. I'm not sure whether I believe that Putin did it or not, though it sort of looks like he did it but .. blah, politicians have their ways. And people can always use some humour in the news...I guess.

    I still don't get your point about the people who want to bomb themselves and go to heaven; you make it sound like they're doing it for fun. Suicide bombers don't bomb themselves for fun, I think. And there aren't such things going on in Southern Lebanon anyways.

    Don't have any remarkable memories about the 2nd of August :-\ so excuse me as I just say allah yer7ahom ajma3een

  • At August 03, 2006 11:51 AM, Blogger Witty

    Thank you for your comment :)

    A Russian spokeman denied that Putin's mic was on. As I mentioned, it was a mere observation by Channel 4 news team. As to whether or not it was an electrical malfunction or a slip of someone's mind, it was real. Have you heard the conversation? hehe.

    As for the suicide bombers, you're right, they don't do it for fun. But they are doing it for all the wrong reasons. The first suicide bombers were in Palestine, which I can understand under the frustration of their occupation and the lack of real resolutions (still not entirely sure if it's justified though to go to Heaven). The current suicide bombers, on the other hand, are killing innocent people in their OWN countries as well as killing Muslims in the process. Their alleged goal is to kill "koffaar", as many as they can, and go to heaven as martyrs, not affraid to die in the process.

    Having said that, wouldn't rescuing innocent civilians in Southern Lebanon a better place for their "goal"? Everyone was afraid to go there just in case Israel hits again. If suicide bombers are not affraid to die, and they want to do a nobel thing as going to Heaven and kill "koffar", why weren't they the first ones to volunteer to go where the killing really is and to save some innocent lives. They'll also get to kill the Koffar as much as they want.. and hey, die for it!! <-- This is just a thought of mine.. a mystery rather!

    And finally, am so glad that you don't have much recollection of August the 2nd, 1990. You are among the luckiest ones :))

    Grrr.. it's AFRAID, not affraid!

    Old age.. old age, thou shall not conquer :|

    "gathering at the Lebanese Embassy "Lebanon Hall" on Friday the 4th of August, 2006 at 5:00 pm to gather funds and supplies and show your solidarity with Lebanon"

  • At August 03, 2006 3:50 PM, Blogger ScarlO


    I sort of got you wrong. You're right about that. Those who want to die for a cause and go to heaven should go fight Israel. You're very much true. Sorry I didn't get you at first :-)

    I would like to say, though, that people in Iraq are different than those in Lebanon and Palestine. I have no sympathy for people of Iraq anymore, simply because they're a bunch of blood-thirsty, brain-washed wackos who are extremely bored and want to see some blood. They probably won't stop and will keep killing each other till God knows when. So ... yeah, I really hate it when people liken 7ezballah (which is a resistant group that wants the freedom of their country) with Al-Qaeda and Bin Laden and all those bunch of funny people labeled as terrorists.

    I guess I drifted away and sort of vented more than I ought, but there goes, I feel better now :-D

    Keep posting :-)

    Thanks again for your comment :) but I beg to differ about the Iraqis and what's happenning to them. The way I see it is that they were under an extreme amount of pressure under the Saddamian regime. And you can't take that pressure away all of a suddent and don't expect an explosion, literally. To be honest, I pridected that sectarian war from the minute the alleged, so-called libaration took place!

    Ahh!! Don't get me started about the Iraq War, dear. It won't be nice! :/

  • At August 03, 2006 11:47 PM, Blogger ScarlO

    True .. the way I see it is that 'Americuh' uncapped the bottle for the mad genie to go and mess around ..

    Won't get you started now, I'll shutsy-upsy :-D
