Khloe and Kim Kardashian in Bozeman Car Wreck

  Thank God they had extra Silicon Protection
BOZEMAN (AP) – Khloe and Kim Kardashian are safe after the vehicle they were in slid off a Montana road and into a ditch on Saturday.
Montana Highway Patrol Capt. Mark Wilfore says the accident occurred before noon on a highway between Bozeman and Belgrade, where the Bozeman Yellowstone International Airport is located. Wilfore said he did not know their destination.

The Middle East you Reap what you Sow

  Found an interesting opinion piece on Line this morning. Not sure If I agree with his  end argument but there is a lot of truth here

http://www.marketwatch.com/story/how-the-west-fuels-the-war-with-radical-islam-2015-01-15


NEW YORK (Project Syndicate) — French Prime Minister Manuel Valls was not speaking metaphorically when he said that France is at war with radical Islam. There is, indeed, a full-fledged war underway, and the heinous terrorist attacks in Paris were part of it.
Yet, like most wars, this one is about more than religion, fanaticism, and ideology. It is also about geopolitics, and its ultimate solution lies in geopolitics as well.
Crimes like those in Paris, New York, London, and Madrid — attacks on countless cafes, malls, buses, trains, and nightclubs — affront our most basic human values, because they involve the deliberate murder of innocents and seek to spread fear throughout society. We are wont to declare them the work of lunatics and sociopaths, and we feel repulsed by the very idea that they may have an explanation beyond the insanity of their perpetrators.
We in the West hate to acknowledge — and most refuse to believe — that our leaders have been flagrantly wasteful of Muslim lives for a century now, in countless wars and military encounters instigated by overwhelming Western power.
Yet, in most cases, terrorism is not rooted in insanity. It is more often an act of war, albeit war by the weak rather than by organized states and their armies. Islamist terrorism is a reflection, indeed an extension, of today’s wars in the Middle East. And with the meddling of outside powers, those wars are becoming a single regional war — one that is continually morphing, expanding, and becoming increasingly violent.
From the jihadist perspective — the one that American or French Muslims, for example, may pick up in training camps in Afghanistan, Syria, and Yemen — daily life is ultra-violent. Death is pervasive, coming as often as not from the bombs, drones, and troops of the United States, France, and other Western powers. And the victims are often the innocent “collateral damage” of Western strikes that hit homes, weddings, funerals, and community meetings.
We in the West hate to acknowledge — and most refuse to believe — that our leaders have been flagrantly wasteful of Muslim lives for a century now, in countless wars and military encounters instigated by overwhelming Western power. What is the message to Muslims of the U.S.-led invasion of Iraq in 2003? More than 100,000 Iraqi civilians — a very conservative estimate — died in a war that was based on utterly false pretenses. The U.S. has never apologized, much less even recognized the civilian slaughter.
Or consider Syria, where an estimated 200,000 Syrians have recently died, 3.7 million have fled the country, and 7.6 million have been internally displaced in a civil war that was stoked in no small part by the U.S., Saudi Arabia, and other allied powers. Since 2011, the CIA and U.S. allies have poured in weapons, finance, and training in an attempt to topple President Bashar al-Assad. For the U.S. and its allies, the war is little more than a proxy battle to weaken Assad’s patrons, Iran and Russia. Yet Syrian civilians are the cannon fodder.
Ending the terror of radical Islam will require ending the West’s wars for control in the Middle East. Fortunately, the Age of Oil is gradually coming to an end.
Long before there was Islamist terrorism in the West, the United Kingdom, France, and the U.S. relied on diplomatic chicanery and launched coups, wars, and covert operations in the Middle East to assert and maintain Western political control over the region.. Historians know this sordid story, but most Westerners do not (in no small part because many of the interventions have been covert).
Since the fall of the Ottoman Empire a century ago, Western powers have sought to control the Middle East for a variety of reasons, including claims on oil, access to international sea routes, Israel’s security, and geopolitical competition with Russia in Egypt, Syria, Iraq, and Iran.
The U.S. now has more than 20 military bases in six countries in the region (Afghanistan, Bahrain, Djibouti, the United Arab Emirates, Oman, and Turkey) and large-scale military deployments in many others, including Egypt, Kuwait, Qatar, and Saudi Arabia. It has funded violence for decades, arming and training the mujahedeen (in effect building the precursor of Al Qaeda) in Afghanistan to fight the Soviets; stoking the Iraq-Iran War in the 1980s; invading Iraq in 2003; trying to topple Assad since 2011; and waging relentless drone attacks in recent years.
The fact that jihadist terrorist attacks in the West are relatively new, occurring only in the last generation or so, indicates that they are a blowback — or at least an extension — of the Middle East wars. With very few exceptions, the countries that have been attacked are those that have been engaged in the post-1990 Western-led military operations in Afghanistan, Iraq, Libya, and Syria.
The terrorists themselves cast their actions in political terms, even though we rarely listen; indeed, the terrorists’ words are typically reported only briefly, if at all. But the fact is that almost every terrorist attack in the West or against Western embassies and personnel has been accompanied by the message that it is in retaliation for Western meddling in the Middle East. The Paris terrorists pointed to France’s operations in Syria.
Almost every terrorist attack in the West or against Western embassies and personnel has been accompanied by the message that it is in retaliation for Western meddling in the Middle East.
To be clear, Western actions do not provide Islamist terrorism with a scintilla of justification. The reason to point out these actions is to make clear what Islamist terrorism in the West represents to the terrorists: Middle East violence on an expanded front. The West has done much to create that front, arming favored actors, launching proxy wars, and taking the lives of civilians in unconscionable numbers.
Ending the terror of radical Islam will require ending the West’s wars for control in the Middle East. Fortunately, the Age of Oil is gradually coming to an end. We should make that end come faster: climate safety will require that we leave most fossil-fuel resources in the ground. Nor do the other ancient motives for Western interference apply any longer. The U.K. no longer needs to protect its trade routes to colonial India, and the U.S. no longer needs a ring of military bases to contain the Soviet Union.
It is time for the West to allow the Arab world to govern itself and to choose its path without Western military interference. And there are heartening reasons to believe that a self-governing Arab Middle East would wisely choose to become a peaceful global crossroads and a partner in science, culture, and development.
The Arab world has played that beneficent role in the past, and it can do so again. The region is filled with talented people, and the overwhelming majority in the region want to get on with their lives in peace, educate and raise their children in health and safety, and participate in global society. Their objectives — prosperity and human security — are our own.

We keep reliving the Past


A lot of Guilt out there, Its the future we need to think about


Two monks were once travelling together down a muddy road. A heavy rain was falling. Coming around a bend, they met a lovely girl in a silk kimono and sash, unable to cross the intersection.
"Come on, girl," siad the first monk. Lifting her in his arms, he carried her over the mud.
The second monk did not speak again until that night when they reached a lodging temple. Then he no longer could restrain himself. "We monks don't go near females," he said. "It is dangerous. Why did you do that?"
"I left the girl there,: the first monk said. "Are you still carrying her?"

Paris Remembers the Victims of latest Terror Attack



  Its great to see the great turn out in honor of the Dead and expression of solidarity among common Parisians of all religious and ethnic groups




  Its also a bit sad to know that this is not the last  time Terrorists will strike innocent people. Somewhere in the world I'm sure it is happening today. The modern world has short attention span I'm afraid and with the Wests  embrace of democracy it will always be hard to stop fanatics from striking. But we must not let them divide and scare us.

Thinking for your self not Listening to the Voice






Driving west of bozeman

Listening to Militia radio from the Hi-line


Sage brush Preachers, advocating war and executions.


Not a lot of difference from the Iman in his Mosque,


in the wilds of Pakistan.

What happened to the Christmas Spirit ?

TARGET RELIGIOUS BATTLE FIELD

Moving against the Mob,

Dodging Convoys of carts,

filled with, Toys, Electronics 

and screaming kids.

Ringing cell phones,

mothers and fathers

balancing check books

in the Lay away line

Cashiers programmed to say

“Is there any thing you forgot ?”

and # Would you like to save 15 %

and go into credit card Debt today ?”

I Look at the crumpled list

clutched in my Stressed cramped hands

All this for the Christ Child

and the all mighty dollar .
