Lament for humanity: a 50 year reflection

burrowes-folksHuman activity drives 200 species of life (birds, animals, fish, insects, reptiles, amphibians, plants) to extinction each day and 80% of the world’s forests and over 90% of the large fish in the ocean are already gone.

(TASMANIA)  Deeply affected by the death of my two uncles in World War II, on 1 July 1966, the 24th anniversary of the ‘USS Sturgeon’ sinking of the Japanese prisoner-of-war ship ‘Montevideo Maru’ which killed the man after whom I am named, I decided that I would devote my life to working out why human beings are violent and then developing a strategy to end it.

CIA torture and the U.S. President

clive-2The declared intention of the CIA comes under the protocol of protecting the American homeland, but how? One is morally alarmed when one reads that American troops have, according to an article by Mia De Graaf for Mail on line & Associated Press (8 December 2014) that we could be facing a sharp rise in terrorism and associated violence because of American CIA torture tactics, which many reports and acres of research record that such abhorrent tactics do not generally work, besides being illegal according to international law. It is immoral and unethical.

Clive Hambidge Global News Centre

(LONDON) America is so alarmed by the CIA technique writes Graaf that. “Troops have been deployed at American posts across the world ahead of the release of a report into CIA torture tactics “ This still to be de-classified 6,000 page long report will inform the world about how Al Qaeda suspects are held in covert locations “across Europe and Asia.” And there violated in the most abhorrent manner.

April in Paris! What a perfect time to visit the world’s most beautiful city! Mitchell and Margaret Ritchie had decided to take a well-earned holiday from their responsibilities in New York. Their eldest son was following in his father’s footsteps and had become an officer in the marines; their younger son was in a business school being groomed to take over Mitchell’s business when he retired. Margaret was now active in social services, especially those concerning fallen women and unwed mothers. It was a Saturday, and they were moving slowly through the collection of art and artifacts in one of the world’s greatest museums: the Louvre.

The threats and costs of war

Operation Enduring FreedomeThe direct and indirect costs of war

By John Scales Avery

(JUST)  The costs of war, both direct and indirect, are so enormous that they are almost beyond comprehension. Globally, the institution of war interferes seriously with the use of tax money for constructive and peaceful purposes.

Today, despite the end of the Cold War, the world spends roughly 1.7 trillion (i.e. 1.7 million million) US dollars each year on armaments. This colossal flood of money could have been used instead for education, famine relief, development of infrastructure, or on urgently needed public health measures.

In memory of Cecil the Lion: let’s hunt with cameras not guns

The late Cecil the Lion

The  brouhaha following the killing of Cecil the Lion by Dr. Walter Palmer, an American dentist, has put a much needed spotlight on so-called trophy hunting, the stalking and killing of wild animals for sport.  

Ralph E. Stone Global News Centre

(SAN FRANCISCO)  My wife and I were privileged to go on a number of African safaris in Botswana, South Africa, Namibia, Kenya, Tanzania, and even Zimbabwe.  We watched animals; we did not shoot them except with a camera.  We went on each safari in an open land rover.  The animals in the game reserve are so used to land rovers, we could drive within a few feet of animals with little or no notice.  Viewing wild animals up close in their natural habitat is fascinating and very entertaining.  We watched female elephants with their young.  The babies were cute trying to learn how to maneuver their trunks to put food in their mouths.  We watched a group of lionesses stalking a herd of cape buffalo waiting for one to stray from the herd; a female cheetah stalking and then killing an impala; huge crocodiles sunning themselves; silver-backed gorillas with their families; chimpanzees and all sorts of monkeys and baboons; a wide variety of birds; thousand upon thousands of wildebeests gathering for their annual migration north; giraffes; hyenas; zebras; deer and antelope; hippos; lemurs; and white black rhinos; and much more.
