​I didn’t know that I could write before 

I started writing…

I didn’t know that I could paint before 

I started painting…

I couldn’t ride a bycicle before

I learned it…

The dame with swimming, skating, skiing, snorkeling,

Long jump, high jump,

Running, fast walk…life…

It’s all about learning to try…

New things…

Treaty

Leonard Cohen

Lyrics

I’ve seen you change the water into wine
I’ve seen you change it back to water too
I sit at your table every night
I try but I just don’t get high with you

I wish there was a treaty we could sign
I do not care who takes this bloody hill
I’m angry and I’m tired all the time
I wish there was a treaty
I wish there was a treaty
Between your love and mine

They’re dancing in the street, it’s Jubilee
We sold ourselves for love but now we’re free
I’m sorry for the ghost I made you be
Only one of us was real and that was me

I haven’t said a word since you’ve been gone
That any liar couldn’t say as well
I just can’t believe the static coming on
You were my ground, my safe and sound
You were my aerial

The fields are crying out, it’s Jubilee
We sold ourselves for love but now we’re free
I’m sorry for the ghost I made you be
Only one of us was real and that was me

I heard the snake was baffled by his sin
He shed his scales to find the snake within
But born again is born without a skin
The poison enters into everything

And I wish there was a treaty we could sign
I do not care who takes this bloody hill
I’m angry and I’m tired all the time
I wish there was a treaty
I wish there was a treaty
Between your love and mine

The First Time Ever I Saw Your Face

Roberta Flack

Lyrics

The first time ever I saw your face
I thought the sun rose in your eyes
And the moon and the stars were the gifts you gave
To the dark and the endless skies my love
To the dark and the endless skies

The first time ever I kissed your mouth
I felt the earth move in my hand
Like the trembling heart of a captive bird
That was there at my command my love
That was there at my command my love

And the first time ever I lay with you
I felt your heart so close to mine
And I knew our joy would fill the earth
And last ’till the end of time my love
And it would last ’till the end of time

The first time ever I saw your face
Your face, your face

Traveling Light

Leonard Cohen

Lyrics

I’m traveling light
It’s au revoir
My once so bright
My fallen star

I’m running late
They’ll close the bar
I used to play
One mean guitar

I guess I’m just
Somebody who
Has given up
On the me and you
I’m not alone
I’ve met a few
Traveling light like
We used to do

Goodnight goodnight
My fallen star
I guess you’re right
You always are

I know you’re right
About the blues
You live some life
You’d never choose

I’m just a fool
A dreamer who
Forgot to dream
Of the me and you
I’m not alone
I’ve met a few
Traveling light like
We used to do

Traveling light
It’s au revoir
My once so bright
My fallen star

I’m running late
They’ll close the bar
I used to play
One mean guitar

I guess I’m just
Somebody who
Has given up
On the me and you
I’m not alone
I’ve met a few
Traveling light like
We used to do

But if the road
Leads back to you
Must I forget
The things I knew
When I was friends
With one or two
Traveling light like
We used to do
I’m traveling light

“Old Man”

Old man look at my life,
I’m a lot like you were.
Old man look at my life,
I’m a lot like you were.

Old man look at my life,
Twenty four
and there’s so much more
Live alone in a paradise
That makes me think of two.

Love lost, such a cost,
Give me things
that don’t get lost.
Like a coin that won’t get tossed
Rolling home to you.

Old man take a look at my life
I’m a lot like you
I need someone to love me
the whole day through
Ah, one look in my eyes
and you can tell that’s true.

Lullabies, look in your eyes,
Run around the same old town.
Doesn’t mean that much to me
To mean that much to you.

I’ve been first and last
Look at how the time goes past.
But I’m all alone at last.
Rolling home to you.

Old man take a look at my life
I’m a lot like you
I need someone to love me
the whole day through
Ah, one look in my eyes
and you can tell that’s true.

Old man look at my life,
I’m a lot like you were.
Old man look at my life,
I’m a lot like you were.

France 24 : US may have committed war crimes in Afghanistan, says ICC


US may have committed war crimes in Afghanistan, says ICC

http://f24.my/2fU8Ey8

US forces may have committed war crimes in Afghanistan through the “cruel or violent” interrogation of detainees, mostly between 2003-2004, the chief prosecutor of the International Criminal Court said Monday.

Unveiling the results of a lengthy initial probe into atrocities committed in Afghanistan, prosecutor Fatou Bensouda said the Taliban militia, Afghan government forces and US troops as well as the CIA all appeared to have carried out war crimes.

But for the first time she highlighted allegations of “war crimes of torture and related ill-treatment, by US military forces deployed to Afghanistan and in secret detention facilities operated by the Central Intelligence Agency.”

There was a “reasonable basis to believe that” during the interrogation of detainees, “members of the US armed forces and the US Central Intelligence Agency resorted to techniques amounting to the commission of the war crimes of torture” as well as cruel treatment and rape.

In her annual report to members of the court, Bensouda said she would decide “imminently” whether to ask judges for permission to launch a full-blown investigation.

If she does, the tribunal would be taking on one of its most complex and controversial investigations to date.

Even though the United States has not ratified the court’s founding Rome Statute, such an investigation would expose US forces for the first time to an ICC probe.

There is little chance though of any US soldiers ending up in the dock in The Hague. And Washington has always sought to shield its forces from international prosecution.

Detailing her office’s initial findings, Bensouda said “at least 61 detainees” were subjected to “torture (and) cruel treatment” by US armed forces in Afghanistan between May 1, 2003 and December 31, 2014.

“Members of the CIA” also appeared “to have subjected at least 27 detained persons to torture, cruel treatment… and/or rape on the territory of Afghanistan” as well as in Poland, Romania and Lithuania between December 2002 and March 2008.

The war crimes allegedly carried out by US forces were “not the abuses of a few isolated individuals,” she added in the report.

Rather it appeared “these alleged crimes were committed” as part of “a policy or policies aimed at eliciting information through the use of interrogation techniques involving cruel or violent methods”.

The aim was to “support US objectives in the conflict in Afghanistan.”

The ICC was set up in The Hague in 2002 to try the world’s worst crimes in which national courts are unwilling or unable to act.

The report was released just ahead of the opening of the annual conference of the tribunal’s state parties, set this year to be dominated by the withdrawal of three African nations.

Kabul recognised the court’s jurisdiction in February 2003, authorising Bensouda’s predecessor Louis Moreno-Ocampo to probe atrocities on its territory.

But some African nations have led a chorus to quit the tribunal, accusing it of bias against Africa. Of the 10 current full ICC investigations, nine are based in Africa.

France 24 : Behind the right wing’s love affair with Vladimir Putin


Behind the right wing’s love affair with Vladimir Putin

http://f24.my/2fV1l99

Russian President Vladimir Putin is widely admired by right-wing leaders in Western democracies – including Donald Trump, Nigel Farage and Marine Le Pen – a stark reversal from when conservatives were the staunchest of Cold Warriors.

Autocratic Russian President Vladimir Putin has garnered much admiration in recent years from a bevy of right-wing politicians who have praised everything from his single-minded pursuit of Russian national interests to his rejection of “elitist” liberal values.

Republican US President-elect Donald Trump, UK Independence Party (UKIP) leader Nigel Farage and French National Front leader Marine Le Pen have all expressed varying degrees of appreciation for the Russian leader’s approach to international affairs.

This would seem to mark something of a reversal from previous decades, when Western conservatives took a more adversarial approach to Russia and its interests, shoring up international support for the alliances and agreements that isolated and contained Moscow.

And while many on the right have traditionally favoured robust interventionist foreign policies, the “new right” appears to be veering toward isolationism and a rejection of internationalism, preferring go-it-alone strategies of national self-interest that undermine support for both the EU and NATO, much to the Kremlin’s delight.

At the same time, identity politics have come to the fore in the form of a preoccupation with questions of national identity and the challenges posed by multiculturalism, the pursuit of liberal secularism and a sharp rise in immigration.

Nationalist, Eurosceptic and anti-immigrant

Speaking to the BBC on Sunday, National Front leader Marine Le Pen was unequivocal in rejecting the global status quo, telling BBC presenter Andrew Marr that it is the EU and not Vladimir Putin that poses the real threat to Europe.

Le Pen characterised the EU as an “oppressive model” of “unfettered globalisation that has been imposed upon us”, expressing the hope that one day it would be replaced by a “Europe of free nations”.

In a further rejection of internationalism, she said NATO had lost its raison d’être. “NATO continues to exist even though the danger for which it was created no longer exists,” said Le Pen, laughing off the suggestion that Moscow poses a threat to Europe.

“What is NATO protecting us against, exactly? Against a military attack from Russia? … In fact, NATO today has become a tool to ensure that its member countries comply with the will of the United States.”

This is “unbearable” for someone who values independence and sovereignty, she said.

Le Pen hailed Putin’s approach to global affairs as an example of “reasoned protectionism”, saying he is understandably “looking after the interests of his own country and defending its identity”.

Asked by the BBC about her views on immigration, Le Pen said France was simply not capable of handling any more arrivals. “We cannot take care of hundreds of thousands of people arriving here, because our first obligation is to protect the French people,” she said.

The National Front leader, who is a candidate for the French presidency next year, said the UK’s vote for Brexit in June and the recent election of Donald Trump in the US had been part of a “global revolution”.

Le Pen expressed the hope that France would join this revolt by rejecting elitism when it votes for a new president in April. She said the election would offer a choice between a “multicultural society, on which fundamentalist Islam is encroaching” and an “independent nation where people are able to control their own destiny”.

‘We want our country back’

For UKIP leader Nigel Farage, sovereignty is also at the heart of his political philosophy. Hetold Fox News in the days following the June 23 Brexit vote that the decision to leave the EU was not based on economic concerns, as many had surmised. “It was decided by a basic argument of sovereignty,” he said. “Should we make our own laws in our own country, and crucially, should we control our own borders?”

In the following days, Farage hailed the Brexit result in an address before the European Parliamant in which he warned that Britain might not be the last to leave the union. He called the vote “a seismic result, not just for British politics [and] for European politics but perhaps even for global politics”, saying that “ordinary people” had sent a clear message: “We want our country back. We want our fishing waters back. We want our borders back. And we want to be an independent, self-governing, normal nation…”

This renewed focus on sovereignty while questioning current international norms echoes some of the views expressed by the Russian president. Farage shocked many when he wasasked by GQ magazine in a 2014 interview which world leader he admired most. “As an operator, but not as a human being, I would say Putin,” he replied. After coming under fire, he later defended his statement in London at a Chatham House event. “I said I don’t like him, I wouldn’t trust him and I wouldn’t want to live in his country, but compared with the kids who run foreign policy in this country, I’ve more respect for him than our lot.”

Farage has made numerous appearances on RT, Russia’s state-funded international news network, and was even offered his own showon the channel in September. He has used this platform to express his strong disdain for the European Union, once telling RT that EU leaders “are not undemocratic. They are anti-democratic. These are very bad and dangerous people. They are the worst people we have seen in Europe since 1945.”

‘At least he’s a leader’

US President-elect Donald Trump has also been criticised for praising Putin and remains under scrutiny over allegations that either he or his advisers had inappropriate contact with the Kremlin during the 2016 presidential campaign.

On a US morning talk show on December 18 last year, Trump defended Putin over allegations that he has had numerous political opponents and journalists murdered. “He’s running his country, and at least he’s a leader. Unlike what we have in this country,” Trump said, in a reference to US President Barack Obama.

At an NBC News forum on national security in September, Trump doubled down on these sentiments, saying that Putin “has been a leader far more than our president has been”.

“I’ve already said, he is really very much of a leader. I mean, you can say, ‘Oh, isn’t that a terrible thing – the man has very strong control over a country.’ Now, it’s a very different system, and I don’t happen to like the system. But certainly, in that system, he’s been a leader, far more than our president has been a leader.”

NBC moderator Matt Lauer reminded Trump that Putin had annexed Crimea, invaded eastern Ukraine, supports Syrian President Bashar al-Assad and is suspected of being behind the hacking of the Democratic National Committee’s emails.

“Well, nobody knows that for a fact,” Trump interrupted.

Rejecting ‘cosmopolitan’ values

Many on the political right view Putin as an ally in defending Western civilisation against an excess of multiculturalism and the “cosmopolitan” beliefs that they feel threaten more traditional values. Moreover, his pragmatic view of world affairs suits those who prefer a realpolitik approach over grandiose visions of spreading democratic values, with often questionable results.

“Putin supports conservative values and puts his country’s interests above international concerns or political correctness, without being apologetic for doing so,” said Liliya Karimova, a Russia and Eurasia expert at the Kennan Institute/Woodrow Wilson Center for International Scholars, in an email to FRANCE 24.

A South Caucasus expert at Chatham House’s Russia and Eurasia Programme who declined to be named pointed out that the Western right wing and Putin also “agree on a number of common enemies”, including “Islamic extremism, the liberal left [and] ‘cosmopolitan’ values”.

He said the global interests of the right wing and Russia are also beginning to merge. There is now a strong affinity between their worldviews that includes “rejecting universalist values and insisting on national specificity/isolationism”.

“Right-wingers in the West don’t see the point of getting involved in conflicts in faraway countries where US or European interests are not clear, or of wasting resources investing in grand projects to democratise other parts of the world,” the analyst said. “This [jibes] with Putin’s basic concept of spheres of influence – Putin appears as a partner in ‘taking care’ of parts of the world in which right-wingers see no vital interest.”

Russia is no longer the “ideological rival” that the Soviet Union once was, he noted. “[And] without ideological issues at stake, Putin appears to be a transactional politician – a ‘dealmaker’ that we can do business with. This suits the kind of post-truth politics that Western right-wingers are currently embracing, and fits with the idea that Putin can be trusted and relied upon in a world where the US no longer wants to be a global policeman.”

“He is your ideal realpolitik partner.”

Karimova said Trump “was able to capitalise on the idea of strong – if not authoritarian – leadership in the likes of Putin”, a position that marked “a departure from a stance that Republicans in the US have traditionally taken toward authoritarian leaders”.

But she added that “it remains to be seen how the initial friendliness plays out when Trump assumes office”.

What the future holds for US foreign policy under a Trump administration is yet to be determined. But the president-elect’s vocal praise for one of Europe’s last autocrats has many concerned that the global alliances of which the US is a key member, such as NATO, may have to prepare for a world in which they must largely go it alone.

France 24 : German police conduct nationwide raids against Islamist group


German police conduct nationwide raids against Islamist group

http://f24.my/2fUR5ha

German police launched dawn raids on mosques, apartments and offices in ten German states on Tuesday, and the government banned an organisation it accused of trying to recruit fighters for the Islamic State (IS) group, the interior ministry said.

A spokeswoman for the ministry described the DWR ‘True Religion’ organisation as a mobilising network for IS group, though she said there was no indication it was planning attacks itself.

Interior Minister Thomas de Maiziere believed the group breached Germany’s constitution and incited hatred, she added. He was due to make a statement on the arrests and the ban later on Tuesday.

The group is also known for its controversial programme called “Lies!” which distributes copies of the Koran in German. But experts say the translation is a particularly strict version from the original Arabic text.

“The message to the radical Islamist scene is clear: we do not tolerate fanatics who try to radicalise young people and send them to jihad,” said Peter Beuth, the interior minister for Hesse state, where the raids also took place.

“By banning this organisation, a major source of radicalisation has been eradicated nationwide. Those who spread hate messages can’t hide behind freedom of religion, the interior ministry has underlined this with the ban today,” he added.

Police said last month they had foiled an alleged plot by a Syrian refugee to bomb one of Berlin’s airports.

Authorities last week also announced the arrest of five men suspected of recruiting fighters for IS group.

US senator introduces bill to abolish Electoral College system

http://f24.my/2fx08Gy

A California senator introduced legislation Tuesday to rid the United States of its Electoral College, the system that allowed Donald Trump to win the presidency despite Hillary Clinton’s lead of nearly one million votes.

The measure comes amid calls for reform following last Tuesday’s presidential upset, but is a long-shot.

“This is the only office in the land where you can get more votes and still lose the presidency,” said Democratic Senator Barbara Boxer, who introduced the measure.

The US Constitution specifies that the Electoral College ultimately decides the presidential election, not the popular vote.

Each US state is given a number of electors, which corresponds to the size of the state’s population.

In 48 of 50 states, rules require all of a state’s electors to cast their votes for whichever candidate wins the popular vote there, in a winner-take-all system.

Under these rules, the winner of the Electoral College vote does not always correspond to the candidate who won the country’s popular vote.

“The Electoral College is an outdated, undemocratic system that does not reflect our modern society, and it needs to change immediately. Every American should be guaranteed that their vote counts,” Boxer said.

Although Clinton received nearly 800,000 more votes than Trump, according to the latest partial results, she lost in the Electoral College.

France 24 :  Bob Dylan will not attend Nobel prize ceremony


Bob Dylan will not attend Nobel prize ceremony

http://f24.my/2fxhKCm

Music icon Bob Dylan will not attend the Nobel ceremony in December to accept his literature prize because he has “other commitments,” the Swedish Academy said on Wednesday.

“The Swedish Academy received a personal letter from Bob Dylan yesterday where he explained that he could not make himself available in December and leave to Stockholm to accept the Nobel prize in literature,” it said in a statement.

“He wishes that he could accept the award personally, but other commitments make it unfortunately impossible. He underlined that he feels incredibly honoured by the Nobel prize,” it added.

The Swedish Academy said it “respects Bob Dylan’s decision but added it is “unusual” for a Nobel laureate not to come to Stockholm to accept the award in person.

Several other prize winners have skipped the Nobel ceremony in the past for various reasons – Doris Lessing, who was too old; Harold Pinter, because he was hospitalised, and Elfriede Jelinek, who has social phobia.

“We look forward to Bob Dylan’s Nobel lecture, which he must carry out – it is the only requirement – within six months starting from December 10, 2016,” the academy said.

The 75-year-old, whose lyrics have influenced generations of fans, is the first songwriter towin the literature prize.
