Time for a quick test.
Question One: Which one is subjected to Police Questioning and general harrassment..? (You can only pick A or B, Any comments about hoards of weapons, helicopters etc will be laughed at but not scored)
A. A government official who has
20 mins warning of a tsunami and doesn't pass the warning on... hundreds die
B. A girl who poses with her clothes on in a seriously fading (in the rest of the world)brand name magazine.
Question 2: You are a sovereign government and you allow rockets to be fired by a unelected militia force from your soil into populated areas of a seriously paraniod, armed to the teeth neighbouring nation , and the kidnap soldiers of the foresaid nation. Do you expect?
a. The nation rocketed to accept all their past wrongs (real and perceived) and beg forgiveness.
b. The International Community come rushing to the aid of a group already declared terrorist.
c. The Nation rocketed to react with massive force as they have always done, making it so much easier for another neighbouring nation to stomp you again as they did in the past
d. Middle East Nations to band together to support you because we are all brothers and until the unnamed nation came it was all peace, light and justice here.
e. You don't give a toss how many or who dies as long as you "maintain the rage"
(Ok I confess, Answer D is a red herring)
As they say "You can pick your friends but you can't pick your family"
