The White Desert, about 500 km southwest of the Egyptian capital Cairo, features limestone and chalk forms strangely shaped by the wind and sand, a terrain that gains in intensity when illuminated by the moon. Slightly to the north lies the Black Desert, given its name by the volcanic rock dolerite, similar to basalt. Four-by-four and trekking trips for tourists include Bedouin music around campfires and nights slept under a breathtaking array of stars. (Reuters)

Himpunan BLACKOUT 505: A “Peaceful Demonstration”?

22 06 2013

Malaysian’s 13th General Election is over but the opposition parties in Pakatan Rakyat who lost the election wants to use street demonstrations, violence and other illegal ways to topple the legal government.

Today Pakatan Rakyat will stage another illegal demonstration against the 13th General Election’s results, called BLACKOUT 505.

The demonstration is against the law because it is in conflict with the Peaceful Assembly Act 2012.

In fact most of the opposition’s demonstrations and rallies are illegal and against the law because the opposition parties’ leaders do not understand that we have to obey the laws of any country we are in.

That is why the opposition leaders complained against the Singapore government’s punishments towards the Pakatan Rakyat’s supporters who held an illegal demonstration in Singapore. (Please read here)

PKR claims that today’s illegal demonstration which will be held in Padang Merbok, Kuala Lumpur will be a peaceful demonstration.

A peaceful illegal street demonstration?

Is it something like Bersih 2.0 and 3.0 when they blamed the police and the government for their violent acts? (Please read here)

Demonstrators thew all kinds of things towards a moving police car and attacking the car. The photo shows demonstrators kicking the car and someone climbed onto the car kicking the windscreen. They then hit the driver and a reporter who tried to help the bleeding policeman. Are they peaceful people?

Do they really want it to be peaceful or do they actually want to see clashes between the police and demonstrators? (Please read here)

They always promised a peaceful street demonstration; anyway most of their street demonstrations are not peaceful and they would blamed others for the bad things that they had done.

I think their idea of a peaceful illegal street demonstrations are the kinds of demonstrations that were held in Cairo, Istanbul, and in Rio de Janeiro.

Is this Anwar Ibrahim’s idea of peaceful street demonstration? Designed By Ahmad Ali JetPlane for Ahmad Ali Karim

Maybe they will do crazy things to spark violence and to provoke the police so that they’ll be caught by the police. (Please read here)

Then they will start a fight, hoping that the foreign reporters will report that the Malaysian Police and government are bad, undemocratic and unfair toward the demonstrators and the oppositions.

As in Bersih 3.0, if they did not go through the barricades at Dataran Merdeka, the Federal Riot Unit (FRU) will not shoot tear gas and spray the water cannon. (Please read here)

Did the opposition leaders care about the demonstrators who supported them and might be killed in the stampede as they were pushed through the barricades into the Dataran Merdeka?

And today, with the hazardous haze problems in Malaysia, the opposition leaders are just happy to let their members and supporters risking their health by walking, running, shouting and doing crazy physical activities for hours in the hazardous haze that can cause them health problems.

Even McDonald had postpone their Olympic Run 2013 at the same location tomorrow due to the haze problem.

I just hope that they will not bring children along even with face masks.

That is why we should say, “NO!” to BLACKOUT 505 and to Pakatan Rakyat!

A Very Bad Flood Along The Mississippi River – Pictures

5 05 2011

Heavy rains and the winter snow melting had caused bad flooding in Illinois, Indiana, Missouri, Kentucky, Arkansas and Tennessee.

Soon the flood might hit Mississippi and Louisiana at the mouth of the Mississippi River.

Flood is a natural disaster.

Levees were built along the Mississippi River to fight floods.

Anyway they had to break 2 big holes into the levee to save Cairo, Illinois from a very ,very big flood.

The break of the levee caused lots of water to rush through the hole and flooded 130,000 acres of farmland in Missouri’s Mississippi County.

Is this a man- made disaster?

Michael Walsh gave the order to blow a two-mile hole into the Birds Point levee in southeast Missouri, which will flood 130,000 acres of farmland in Missouri's Mississippi County but protect nearby Cairo, Ill.

The demolition of the levee sent water pouring onto thousands of acres of farmland Tuesday, easing the Mississippi River floodwaters threatening the tiny Illinois town of Cairo. The demolition project did nothing to ease the risk of more trouble downstream, where the mighty river is expected to rise to its highest levels since the 1920s in some parts of Tennessee, Mississippi and Louisiana.

Egyptians are angry of the Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak.

So they held demonstrations.

Demonstrations is a way to fight for something important.

But they are supposed to stop doing bad things and violence during the demonstrations because it can destroy our world.

Violence can turn into a war.

This is a disaster.

It is like what happened in Bangkok.

People were killed and injured; buildings, cars and plants were destroyed.

They should have a peaceful demonstration to say what they wanted.

And the government should listen to the people and discuss what can be done for them.

We have to take care of our Earth and lets go green.
