“So, what’s it going to be?”

Bashar Al-Assad taunts US and allies in new web article.

With the world on tenterhooks over the situation in his country, Syrian President Bashar Al-Assad has written an open letter to the West taunting them over their seeming lack of options with regard to intervention (or not) in Syria:

Well, here we are. It’s been two years of fighting, over 100,000 people are dead, there are no signs of this war ending, and a week ago I used chemical weapons on my own people. If you don’t do anything about it, thousands of Syrians are going to die. If you do something about it, thousands of Syrians are going to die. Morally speaking, you’re on the hook for those deaths no matter how you look at it.

So, it’s your move, America. What’s it going to be?

I’ve looked at your options, and I’m going to be honest here, I feel for you. Not exactly an embarrassment of riches you’ve got to choose from, strategy-wise. I mean, my God, there are just so many variables to consider, so many possible paths to choose, each fraught with incredible peril, and each leading back to the very real, very likely possibility that no matter what you do it’s going to backfire in a big, big way. It’s a good old-fashioned mess, is what this is! And now, you have to make some sort of decision that you can live with.

And he’s right, of course. This a complete no win situation for the West. And with Russia and China strongly backing Al-Assad regime, there’s the danger of things going all sorts of Taylor Swift if the US and chums move in.
Here in SA, we’re tucked away from the military side of things, but we’re still economically involved (as a developing economy, we’re the first to get shafted by this sort of unrest) and, of course, politically. Basically, the SA government will side strongly against the US on anything it can. So that means that tacitly, we’re fully in support of Syria using chemical weapons on its own men, women and children.


It’s also interesting to note how politicians have dealt with the situation: UK opposition leader Ed Milliband, for example, has said this week that his party would back military action and also that his party would not back military action. So that’s fairly clear then.

Al-Assad leaves us with this chilling warning:

Long story short, I’m going to keep doing my best to hold on to my country no matter what the cost. If that means bombing entire towns, murdering small children, or shooting at UN weapons inspectors, so be it. I’m in this for the long haul. And you will do…whatever it is you’re going to do, which is totally up to you. Your call.

The man’s a cold, calm, calculated nutter.

No easy way out of this, and sadly there’ll be no good news coming out of Syria any time soon.

Oh, and for those of you who have been bothered to read this far down, yes, I’m completely aware that it’s a satirical article from a satirical website.

A matter of survival

Before you read this post, please:

If you do not have expendable liquid funds available to you, to cover as a minimum of one point five million euros for each member of your family, please do not continue.

Just kidding – 6000 miles… is free to read and probably always will be – but that €1.5m is how much it’s going to cost you to survive a plethora of rather unpleasant events coming up in the near future, according to the Arc Survival Group.

The approaching nastiness includes World War 3:

We are moving closer and closer to the start of the third world war starting with Israel blitzing Palestine, Syria, Lebanon, and covering the Iranian flank while the U.S. and joint forces invade Iran, from Iraq.

These events being the catalyst for China to invade Taiwan, North Korea to invade South Korea and hey presto we have the third world war which will basically reduce the worlds population down to an estimated 1 billion people, at which point the new world order will step in and offer a safe, secure, peaceful future for all, tagged, bagged, and chipped.

This is the long time planned and thought out new world of the few (many names including, Knights of Malta, Knights of the Templar, Bilderburg group, Illuminati, and so on Reptilian hybrids, shape shifters, etc, etc) It is quite well known that a large segment of these entities have been living underground for thousands of years, feeding off the surface in terms of energy, food, etc etc.

I actually thought I found a shape shifter living underground in my back garden this weekend, but it turned out to be a mole. Still, it did shift shape quite rapidly when I hit it with a spade and now a large segment of it is in my compost heap.

But anyone can survive a World War. I know people that have done it twice.
My grandmother, for one.

Asteroids though, well that’s a different matter. And when they’re tied in with a complete loss of planetary magnetism and rotation, you know there’s gonna be some trouble.

NASA has known for many years that an asteroid as large as a planet with the appearance of a devil’s head is passing within close proximity to our planet around the end of 2012. They also have known that Earth’s magnetism has been decreasing year on year and is expected to reduce to nothing around the end of 2012, when the earth’s rotation is expected to stop for three days and nights before starting to rotate once again in the opposite direction. The effects are not completely known but countless models have been made. These facts have for obvious reasons been kept from the general public, and I agree with this course of action because anarchy would not be good for anyone.

People, this is serious stuff. Those of you with extensive fridge magnet collections would do well to put down a towel or something soft in front of your fridge in order to limit the damage when the magnetism finally runs out and they drop off.
The effects are not completely known, but countless models have been made and these models indicate that if the world begins to spin in the opposite direction, then day will follow night instead of night following day. Durban will finally get sunsets and Super 15 games from New Zealand will start at an entirely reasonable hour. Voting for the ANC will mean you go to Hell and flights from Cape Town to Jo’burg will mysteriously take 10 minutes longer than flights from Jo’burg to Cape Town.

Yes. 10 minutes longer. It’s that serious.

What to do?

Your life is in your hands, no one else’s, everything is your choice. We cannot offer any guarantees of survival, we cannot even guarantee the human race’s survival. But we can promise that if anyone does survive what is coming, it will be our group. ‘The last shirt has no pockets’. Who do you trust ??

Well, having considered my options quite thoroughly, I’m thinking that it might be you guys at the Arc Survival Group.

After all,

it has been predicted by some that such a large proportion of the human race will wake up, and start to once again use the right side of the brain, connect with the nearly forgotten 6, 7, 8, 9th senses and so on, connect with the universe, see beyond the MATRIX that we are all trapped in and reject the Sumerians, reptilian controller’s of the experience we are all in right now. Rejecting the order that has been put in place by the Sumerians over the last several thousand years. This would be interesting.

And I like interesting things.

Also, I just happen to have €6 million at my disposal, having won that Vodafone free SMS draw that I didn’t enter last week and I’m going to give it all to you in that

irrevocable letter of credit attached to a contact agreeable to both parties

I will also include my fax number as you request (when all other means of transmission have broken down, we will obviously be reduced to using primitive means of communication). And then, once I’ve given you the cash, I’ll sit back and wait for you to get in touch. After all, you tell me:

We know some of the safest places to be on the planet, when disaster prevails. Our Arks are designed like no others to withstand the most extreme of disasters, and although no one can be sure we believe we are building an Ark survival village in the safest place on earth. The village will be completely unknown to the outside world, and is a long distance from any habitation. It can not be detected by land or air and will always remain that way.
For obvious reasons I cannot go into any greater detail than this, other than to say that the Ark Survival village will be completely invisible to the outside world, as will its Elite occupants.

Your obvious reasons are very visible to me, even if your survival village is not. Although I like the idea that it has a library and gymnasium. It sounds like some kind of funky underground retirement village, but one accessed solely by (previously) rich people in high speed, long distance helicopters.

So let’s do this, Arc Survival Group. I’ll give you loads of money and you try to protect me amidst nuclear warfare, asteroid impact and apocalyptic falling fridge magnets. And I’ll tell all my mates too.

Upmost secrecy at all times is key.

Oh. OK. Sorry.
Mum’s the word.
