Maybe we aren't exactly stupid

A picture of a hacked website from a Saudi! Wow, so we have some people who can hack? Hey at least we aren't complete morons as some people say. All Danish websites, espicially the ones that posted the Prophet's, the hackers are promising for more. So what do I think about this? Well, Denmark's government had no right for saying that this is ' Free Speech '. So if I talked and insulted a Black person would that be right? Espicially if that Black person was their historic leader. Like insulting Jesus, you'd never find that in a Saudi caricature, because we should respect others religions. Making fun of politic figures is different, I see no problem in making fun of our kings and other presidents. But making fun of one of the greatest person in the world?!

Bush to visit Pakistan soon?

Bush’s visit to boost ties, says Musharraf
ISLAMABAD, Jan 21: President General Pervez Musharraf said on Saturday that Pakistan was looking forward to a visit by US President George Bush with hopes that it would strengthen ties between the two countries.The president told the visiting US Under-Secretary for Political Affairs R. Nicholas Burns during a meeting that Pakistan and the United States would be working closely to prepare for the American leader’s visit expected later this year.An official statement quoted Gen Musharraf as saying that the visit would lead to “further broadening and deepening of the bilateral relationship”.He also thanked the US for assistance in the aftermath of the Oct 8 earthquake. Regional issues and bilateral relations also came under discussion.The president apprised the undersecretary of the status of the composite dialogue and the recent foreign secretary-level talks between Islamabad and New Delhi.While noting the importance of confidence-building measures, the president underscored the need for moving to conflict resolution.President Musharraf highlighted Pakistan’s contribution to peace, stability and reconstruction of Afghanistan. Pakistan would be participating in the Conference on Afghanistan being held in London later this month.Undersecretary Burns expressed appreciation for efforts by the Pakistan government in this regard.The visit of Undersecretary Burns to Pakistan is part of a regional tour.He will leave for Colombo on Sunday.—Agencies

This will be a rather interesting visit. It will sure help the Middle East, but it could be totally opposite. :'Be prepared to see Muslims across India fomenting widespread anger against US President George Bush when he comes calling in the next few weeks in a landmark yet conflict-ridden visit to the subcontinent that Washington believes is world's most dangerous territory.'

We Muslims always have to make some noise do we? Why can't they just chill and see what happens, not getting ready to attack. Though I'm sure Bush is happy that he won't be visiting the Hay'ahs headquarters...haha I'll pay trillions if he is able to get out of there in one piece!

Also in some other interesting news, well for me, our NT will finish their 4 teams tournament on Wednesday against Greece. It will be a tough game, but it will be a good friendly, hope our coach benefits from it. We will also face Poland around March 23, and Czech on May 26, and big chances of facing France on June 4. Just hope we won't get spanked at the world cup again..

Chirac acting like a strong badboy

French President Jacques Chirac has said France would be ready to use nuclear weapons against any state which launched a terrorist attack against it.
The BBC's Alistair Sandford in Paris says this is the first time that Mr Chirac has so clearly linked the threat of a nuclear response to a terrorist attack.
On a visit to L'Ile-Longue base in Brittany, Mr Chirac said leaders of states who would "use terrorist means against us, just like anyone who would envisage using, in one way or another, arms of mass destruction, must understand that they would expose themselves to a firm and adapted response from us".
The president spoke of new threats in a post-Cold War world, without mentioning any specific threat against France.
"In numerous countries, radical ideas are spreading, advocating a confrontation of civilisations," he said, adding that "odious attacks" could escalate to "other yet more serious forms involving states".

What a smartass, so if AlQaeda bombs the Eifel tower, which state will you attack? Oh, my bad Chirac, you will do just like what the US did, attack the 'badboy' country in the middle east, maybe nuking Iran? Or maybe if your a bit drunk attack Saudi Arabia?

My advice Chirac, don't think of attacking Saudi Arabia.

I hope AlQaeda attacks France in a few days, like to see what will Chirac do, maybe he took some 'Acting Like A Donkey 101' lessons from Bush?

Happy New Year

Happy New Year to everyone, now here's a very interesting football game between two world class teams. ;)

Forget England-Argentina/Germany/Portugal and all the rest and listen to this one.
It concerns a match played between Barbados and Grenada in cup competition.
Barbados needed to win the game by two clear goals in order to progress to the next round. Now the trouble was caused by a daft rule in the competition which stated that in the event of a game going to penalty kicks, the winner of the penalty kicks would be awarded a 2-0 victory.
With 5 minutes to go, Barbados were leading 2-1, and going out of the tournament (because they needed to win by 2 clear goals). Then, when they realized they were probably not going to score against Grenada's massed defence, they turned round, and deliberately scored on their own goal to level the scores and take the game into penalties. Grenada, themselves not being stupid, realized what was going on, and then attempted to score an own goal themselves. However, the Barbados players started defending their opponents goal to prevent this.
In the last five minutes, spectators were treated to the incredible sight of both team's defending their opponents goal against attackers desperately trying to score an own goal and goalkeepers trying to throw the ball into their own net. The game went to penalties, which Barbados won and so were awarded a 2-0 victory and progressed to the next round.

A weird game indeed! And it actually happened in 1994, read the rest of the article and you'll find out its actually true.
