The world awakes this
morning to the sound of missiles being fired, as if the era regressed to the
way it was in World War Two.
Looking at the
rationale for the escalation to large quantities of missile exchange, was it
the series of abducted and ‘dehuminized’ teenagers within recent weeks?
Those with, the knowledge
of how to carry forth with prudence, and wisdom that weigh properly measure for
measure, thought that the solution to precluding violence that resembles the
events of 20 or 30 years ago, was done so by the thorough work of police
conducting their investigations into the abduction exchange.The investigations did occur.So why did violence escalate to the extent it
has?Now the question is, was the
missile exchange seen now, inevitable?
It seems there were
some confessions as to the abductions. Is that enough to catapult into full scale
The concentration of
violence is reported to be in the Gaza area.
Reports are almost 40
people have died since Monday day before yesterday.Reports also indicate about 700 people have
been wounded in that time frame.Are all
35 to 40 people dead intricately tied to the teen abductions of the last few
The populations in
the world that know the trends of the ‘Palestine-Israel’ conflict, could almost
sense the escalation to increased violence was coming, if a viable solution to
preclude them was not set in place in time.
conflict, is in quotes because there is more going on in the region, a region
with holy attributions that goes back to the times at least of Isa/Jesus, the
Injeel, or as popularly known, 'Biblical Times', than just a two-way strife of
violence by one side Palestinians, and the other side Israelis.
Problematic to the
recent teen abduction situation, is the history of illegal smuggling that has
gone on in the region for years, especially around 2009.Human organ smuggling, such as kidney
smuggling, is one of the markedly popularly known black market schemes of
It is known by those
familiar with the region, that certain areas, especially at night, are not
areas where it is prudent to be traveling or hitchhiking.This is not to say that the entirety of the
teen abduction that occurred recently was due to hitchhiking in unsafe areas,
what it does bring up are subject areas that need to be immediately addressed:
1-The increase in safety measures using non-violent technologies for regions
which could be loosely described as ‘low zones’, these zones meaning areas not
as populated, not as wealthy, and not as urbanized. Referent areas
might have been used to sneak crimes such as trafficking in.Has there been an adequate upsurge in the
safety measures that are comprised of surveillance cameras and lighting, been
provided for all, Palestinians, Israelis, tourists, visitors, travelers to pay
respects to the Holy Land and Holy Sites, and diplomats?
2-Palestinian and Israeli identity in the sense of belonging, among the youth.Knowledge can wade away, and new methods of
accessing, organizing, and presenting knowledge evolve.What is a Palestinian, what is an Israeli?-
is something that , where some youth might find out in the course of study,
that they have ancestry to both sets of groups, and have to make a decision as
to who they belong. Moving to the next point…
…Which leads to, is the two-pronged framework of either Palestinian or Israeli
overly simplified with respect to where everything is now?Are youth being forced to enter one of two
camps, when not applicable, nor appropriate, and which could contribute to
4-Parents, markedly of youth that are in the 18 to 25 year old age group, from
all over the world, areas of Europe that has seen waves from there to
Israeli immigration at the forefront, must be appropriately aware that their
son or daughter who might have joined the Israeli military, might have done so
without having the same kind of long-dated sense of ancestral ties to Bany
Israel, briefly translated as the Sons, Children, or Tribe of Israel, Israel,
Palestine, Assyria, or eastern Egypt, Trans-Jordan, or other regions that may
have come and gone in place-name, in or very near the now known as
The principal and
concept of ‘keep out our Holy War’, can sometimes be unfair to the rest of the
world.When world leaders have to stop
what they are doing, to assist in the peace process after a sudden increase
spike in violence, it pulls away from the set of people that are being asked to
mind their business.For example, here
in the U.S., there are economic challenges that include children not having par
level education, in some cases, inadequate school facilities to even go to
school.Rates of joblessness,
homelessness, and hunger, have affected Americans nationwide.Straightforwardly, they need money, help, and
assistance.When the food gets taken out
of hungry children’s’ mouths, so that a Palestine-Israel situation can be
urgently attended, many become involved, even if remotely indirectly.
of the human being, becomes an issue, when Palestine and Israelis go at it, as
if it were decades ago.The fortune of
non-violent technology becoming available that can be used to work toward
peaceful solutions, has to be used ahead of using minimal increases in
technology such as more powerful rockets.
In closing this brief news with
some commentary, is the concern of the balance of attention that a region at
war gains, and also when the parties involved in the conflict are
geographically adjacent to each other.Ukraine-Russia from a few months ago, Korea-Japan from a few weeks ago,
turbulence over the South-China Sea, who deserves most?
There is a sense that this kind of situation is either starting to evolve, about to, or is already. Referring to, one blast that upsets the region and makes world news, then another. With all the streams of information made available on news sources, making crystallization out of the muddle as to all the details, especially as the aftermath is unfolding, is a challenge.
However, what is clear, is administering to the tragic events probably has the consensus as a 'must'.
Regarding Nigeria in the past couple of days.
The issue is forced to be at the front page news. Sometimes the keeper of the house has to tend to the behaviors of the guests regardless of stimulus of the activities, -like it or not-.
What the cause is, and whether they were under the control of man or control of the destiny of nature, incidents over the past few months involving high school students, demands that a viable unshaken solution be found.
A few marked incidents:
Pennsylvania high school stabbing last week, Franklin Regional, subject of focus, 16 years old, about 22 injured or affected, a teacher included
barely coming off the Ft. Hood incident involving a disgruntled soldier, a few days earlier
Texas school stabbing, Spring High School, September 2013
Wicked crash involving FedEx truck in northern California, claiming lives
In Russia, in recent months, there was a school shooting, fatalities were included, the subject of attention, was reportedly 16 years old, Moscow, February 2014, held 20 hostage, a teacher a victim
In years past, is the popularly known Columbine shooting
There are many more, and further details.
This article, initially written 2:30pm E.S.T. 04/14/2014, might possibly be continued.
Condolences to those that served, honorably, with dignity. 7:15pm E.S.T. Already an overwhelming amount of coverage has been placed upon the Fort Hood incident. Thereunto, there is probably no need to reiterate findings concerning the disheartening event.
Improving safety is always a priority. Questions that lie in the wake of yesterday's shooting may include:
What are the cycles of events, that contain events such as the most recent salient Fort Hood shooting? Why did, or do these cycles events occur?
How far beyond, perhaps comparatively, cut-and-dried designations for safety, should be taken as areas for increased safety development?
Other events that the memory of is evoked with the events of Wednesday April 2nd:
2009 Fort Hood Shooting
Columbia Mall shooting that took place in recent months in Maryland
Shooting in Norfolk, Virginia that claimed the life of Navy personnel
Parade disaster when float struck within the past several years
Mud slides on the northwest U.S. coastal area has taken a toll that is estimated at nearing 200 lives unaccounted for. This as of 10:00am E.S.T.
Recently, heavy flooding occurred in the southern quarter of California. Not long after seismic to include possible earthquake activity took place in the state, if not the same region. The pattern of tumult of geological masses, speaks.
Always leave possibility that there could be more climatic geological geographic activities in the upcoming months, weeks, or even days, that might require emergency assistance from all states.
Proactive and expedient assistance needless to say is needed to help locate and rescue and save the lives of those missing from the landslide.
Meanwhile over in the Malaysia region, some of the theories of what happened to the missing plane in Flight 370 might be getting too far fetched in the wrong directions. It is possible that whatever happened to the plane might be outside the norm of expectation, however, directing theories toward what is constructive might help streamline solutions.
The waters are so rough in that region that if the plane was in many pieces, it they could be carried in many directions for hundreds of miles in different directions.
Search technology must include the capacity to locate sunk objects that are BELOW the ocean floor, as some of the pieces might have been swallowed, if such events occurred.
Physics might have it, that a 180 degree turn-around in mid flight might have caused the momentum of one direction to tear the plane in half or lose a wing if that event is theorized.
Whatever happened on board the plane, after the lights went out, was probably not what happens in the movies, but a zig-zag of course of the plane. There might have been a struggle on board if there were aggressive activities, or if there were natural activities meaning from air streams or storms, or electromagnetic interference from forms of life in the ocean, then the pilot would have made an effort for safe arrival in possible conjunction with a change, or if forced to fly to somewhere or on a course direction, would have made some sort of curve in flight pattern from the original to the one off trail as opposed to a mid flight 180 or 120 like a paper airplane held in your hand.
Here are some other events in history that can be used to analyze what might have happened to scattered metal objects from flight and water vehicles:
Space Shuttle Disasters
Flight disasters off the coast of New York sometime after 1996
Other flight disasters
Technology that might help:
Satellite imagery-- going back in time an closely examining reels of footage for the day the plane disappeared
Infra red satellite
If there was an extreme heat from wrongful activity, it might show on the reels. If there was no out of the ordinary heat, or erratic activity of flight path, then there is the slight possibility that the plane landed somewhere on land, and the folks are or were trapped.
Who else might hold clue:
Ask native peoples that live on coastal areas, like south-eastern India, Sri Lanka, aborigines, and folks that might not speak popular languages.
Ask children that were out playing in the hills if they saw anything.

The Olympics is not supposed to be synonymous with danger for athletes.
Memories of the Munich Olympics incident in 1972 still remains.
A number of young men in their thirties have faced the brunt of action taken by Russian security forces, in a chain of events that has been repeating itself over the past couple of years, which is suicide bombings, then a confrontation between persons pointed out as suspected as militants to be in some degree responsible for the suicide attacks, and Russian security forces.
The Sochi Olympics has been portrayed as fueling further fire to aggressively make certain the freezing of militants capacities.
Amongst concerns is, non-biased on international level, is, slain persons during the confrontations, having not had a chance to stand trial.

SGPC president Avtar Singh Makkar said SGPC would protest in front of the US Embassy in Delhi and hand over a memorandum to the US ambassador.

September 2012, protests outside, however moving very close, past ordinary security limits, regarding film, 'Innocence...', credited with being produced in the U.S., yet also had news stories of implications occurring in other places. Indian police were reported to have formed human wall of protection at the scene at the consulate.
August, end of 2nd week, 2012, Saturday, riots, included targeting a train. Specifics respective to consulate are not available at this time. Insofar the behavioral patterns, NDTV says, "The police believe this mob which boarded the train at Kurla, mingled with angry protestors who were already there, instigated the others who seem to have also joined in taking advantage of the situation."

Late September 2012, reference 'Innocence..' film
intentionally left blank, above content sufficient for providing summary
Just in, 11:00am E.S.T., protesters in India are asking the U.S. embassy or at least some aspects thereof, be shut down, according to a report released '2 hours ago'.
With all the economic cooperation going on between the U.S. and India, valuable for the livelihood of millions, opinions are closing after an incident is not commensurate.
Of course is the best effort of U.S. diplomacy to remedy the situation after the referent incident in New York.
The people of India want to show that they have a strong belief and manifested with the zeal in form of protesting, in what their culture upholds as symbols of dignity. It can be gauged that the protests are not to such an extreme that it has consumed the health of the numbers of people such as during a war, then again, persons have been arrested, signifying a sacrifice of their futures for the stand they are making. Looking through different lenses, to a country with a population density with a different set of dynamics than the U.S. in many places, and that India as a country is almost considered by many as, as old as the same India that is in or near the region that first felt the foot of the first man Adam, with that comes what the people might feel as their 'place' in the world of diplomacy and chivalry of the earth's people, the situation regarding the dimensions of treatment of their diplomat, they want to make clear they are taking it seriously. Meantime, to perspectives that might be held by some some American, it might be hard to understand all of the why's, as to why it being taken seriously, resultant of things such as upbringing, priorities laid out in culture, and so forth.
Berlin October: Khalq members said to be from Iran, were outside embassy in Berlin, Germany Reports that marked in the timeline of events was Friday October 18, 2013.
Tel Aviv A few days ago: Tel Aviv known as a city of Israel, a location of embassy, has seen what reports show of 1,000 and even 10,000 African migrant protestors.
Concerns that Present Themselves Words from the wise, whereupon a convergence of a mass of people outside of an embassy, there is no guarantee that every member of that protesting mass is identified as comprising a contraindicated limited group. There might be other people joining the protest under a banner or slogan, from another banner. Simplifying further, if the protest is said to be comprised of immigrants from country 'x' protesting for higher wages, it might actually be the case that in that amalgam of people standing outside, are people that illegally arrived from countries 'y', 'a', 'b', 'c', etc., taking long routes to get to their objective destination the embassy, for the purpose of readying for turbulence for something that has nothing to do with higher or lower wages.
There are more events that can be added to the list, the above cited are just a few to summarize.
Invading airspace, how it happened, the details of why it happened on a moment to moment case by case basis, has not been accessed. This article [originally written] still early on after release published article of 2 hours ago. Referent article in IrishTimes online.
In the heat of an incident, sometimes it may seem that the incident is isolated or will remain so. History has taught us, take for instance the Iraq invasion of Kuwait that is credited as the big tip off of the Iraq War about 25 years ago, that hotly involved feuds on geopolitically recognized borders can mushroom exponentially into a situation far larger than what it seemed to be at the moment of the initial.
Over the years, criticism of the Arab World has been in regard to pulling together.
It is evident that Syria warplanes [or warcraft] are contending with the catch-22 scenario derived from combatants and hostilities on geopolitical border fringes, as the border with Lebanon respective to complaints about airspace infringement is not the only one, in the past 3 years thereabout, there have been complaints about airspace over Turkey infringed. Country land domains being used in different ways by those hostile to Syrian government, somewhere down the line, the countries presiding over those domains react to the airspace situation.
Based on the content of news stories accessed thus far, 1pm E.S.T., it is not clear whether the soldiers that fired on the Syrian warplanes [or warcraft] knew that they were Syrian warplanes. Communication, surveillance detection equipment, etc., along with a look at the broad circumstance, undoubtedly will probably get investigated.
8:30pm E.S.T., varying reports as to the type of aircraft fired at. Some reports say helicopters, some say warplanes. Currently renown news entities have reports indicative that there were 2 helicopters involved.
