White Washing America (W.W.A.)

Introspection rather than extroversion what we need now.
This is a reproduction written many moons ago.
I had to do this, since a guy in "Ravaya Sunday Paper" is White Washing America (W.W.A.).

India Turning Tables on its neighbor Sri-Lanka
It is nice to see true colours of Indian politicians who are bending backward to please US.
I cannot believe why was the rush for  US to bring the resolution against a tiny country.
My gut feeling now is US was tacitly helping India and Indira to manipulate on Sri-Lanka and when that failed, cry foul both with India and Sri-Lanka.


Date Line


1. Hiroshima

 
2. Cluster Bomb In Vietnam

 
From Hiroshima to cluster bomb in Vietnam was one chapter in US history.
What did UNO did to help Asia then.
Nothing.


3. Middle East
Then came 1967 to 1973 destabilizing the Middle East.
What did the UNO did then.
Sweet Nothing.
That is the second chapter of US sponsored global terrorism.


4. Killing Che Guerra
In Africa what they did including killing Che Guerra is only a side dish (chapter) and were helping all the war lord in African continent.
 

5. Iraq and Afghanistan
The third chapter is Iraq and Afghanistan and it is continuing unabated.
What they did to national museum in Iraq is vandalism of ancient culture and I believe many of the artifacts ended up in USA.


Can we appoint Americans as champions of human Rights?
The answer is BIG NO.

 
One cannot dump history like a prostitutes and potatoes.


History repeats and remain vivid in everybody's mind especially with the old and mature.


Remorse at old age when close to grave is no good.


I expected Obama being young would be different.
He wants to show the Americans that he is a Big Bully before the elections.
His strategy certainly will back fire by December.
I hope Americans will give him the exit signal next time round and to me Bush was much nicer guy who was less duplicitous in international affairs.
He meant what he said.
Less said about Bun Ky Moon is the wiser counsel; he has become a singing parrot for Americans and a Darling Dolly of the West.
He has forgotten his Asian roots where two third of the world population lives.
Asians including Indians are still living in absolute poverty some of them do not have water to drink and for sanitation.
UNO is a white elephant and got its priorities in wrong order.
People have to have basic living standards to enjoy living like humans.
Then only they can talk about human rights!
As for Pavans who raped Tamil girls and the price for which Rajive had to pay with life is still the living history and not yet gone down as past, yet in the minds of victims.
What did Indian politicians do?
Sweet nothing.
These girls had to come to Colombo and get their abortions done almost freely.
When a ship sinks rats come out but when the going go bad before elections politicians hold on to any straw, Human Rights included.
Fortunately there is no difference in Indian and American politicians in that regard.
They look like two sides of the same coin!
They want to hold on to power.


History should be accurately recorded.
That should be true for Sri-Lanka.
Mahinda Chinthanaya delayed the inevitable.
We cannot put the clock back but reconciliation should start at some point.
Otherwise we cannot be proud of our past.

 

Tamils who remained in Sri-Lanka in spite of the tremendous odds, deserve a better deal.

They are our true brethren.
Not the ones who went as  economic refugees, never to return but cry foul from a comfortable distance from their own brethren.

New Ubuntu


New Ubuntu
New Ubuntu is out.
I have not tested it.
I have stopped using it when Unity desktop was initiated.

Now I have gone to Ubuntu's Base Debian as my Role Model.


This is a piece of old writing.
Old Ubuntu
You may be wondering why am not writing anything on Ubuntu. 
It is universally available and is the most popular download.
Since its life cycle is fast it is difficult to keep pace with it.
Only difficulty I have with it is that it does not give the administrator (standard of old Linux behaviour) function for the desktop version and the difficulty and the time it takes to download (because many are accessing it's download site).
In fact I downloaded the 10th version but when I tried the 9th version it broke down several times.
I had to resort to requesting a CD of version 9 from Canonical.
I did receive the CDs today.
Unlike SuSe and Mandriva the Canonical do a good job in marketing too.
Hats off to Canonical which is better than Redhat and Fedora.
It has many versions including a studio version, Kbuntu, Lubuntu and many more.
Kubuntu is impressive.
I will write on Super OS which is a derivative of it like Linux Mint.
Generally speaking what I am trying to do is to make one aware of the other distributions not backstabbing.
Ubuntu now has all the virtues.
Do not fear using it.
Configuring is bit slow but internet access is very easy and hardware detection is excellent.
Thanks to all at Ubuntu team even I use PCLinux most of the time. 
My hard disk has many distributions and Ubuntu is one of them.

Google Jump started Linux Android

Like the Canonical's Unity Desktop, Google has jump stated on Linux base and it is time for Microsoft to re-engineer the wheel of IT technology.
Buying Skype may not solve its problems of insecurity and virus base.

Glossy front but ineffective back end would slow it down but it is wrong to say or think that Microsoft is finally dead due to poor mutation (genetically speaking) evolutionary wise of IT industry.

Cloning something is easy but when something is inherently faulty, the evolutionary process adapt the survival of the fittest strategy to chose the best for the current generation and Linux did not mastermind the change but it looks a successful business venture with its search engine has won the day.

Embracing Linux it has hit two bird with one stone.

I am not at all against business success of any company but when a company uses FUD psychology, Fear, Uncertainty and Doubt as a strategy in evolution it is bound to fail in real world with real people.

This was what happened to Microsoft whereas Apple only focused on high end and remained there for its own worth.

That strategy also might change if we hit another financial crisis which we cannot avoid as the way things are developing.

Hunger may be the next wave that will take us by surprise if we get engrossed only in technology.

So cutting down cost and wastage are important.
Recycling and stability of a product to last at least a decade is important,
Disposable era might abruptly end when shortages (rare metal and even integrated circuits) hit the market.

Emerging signs are of that nature.

Google also uses cloud computing as its next line of defense.

If not for business strategy Linux also should look at business acumen of Google for its success without hampering its original goals and vision.

There should be some business plan for some of the successful Linux distributions and canonical taking UNITY forward should not be looked at with squinted eye.

Why aren't we looking with the same squinted eye when we look at Google?

That is my question for the intellectuals in the IT industry.

Success breeds success.

Failures (Linux included) leads to bigger failure.

This is a strategy applied in field of sports and in war games and terrorism,too.

Nobody talks about a failed team (cricket) or a failed army.

It is nice to see America is taking a cue from us and taking terrorism head on.

But they should not apply double standard like Microsoft and USA politics (and their ambassadors all over the world).

Duplicity never works.

It is not the old world order now.
It is a new world order now and everybody should be transparent not naked in their actions.

They should have realized it before the WiKiLeaks.
It is too late to repair the damage done.

Junk in the Parliament

Reproduction
Thereis a piece of space junk coming towards us.
I hope it hits the parliament in full session and destroy our JUNK politicians.


Nature News suggested that it could be a piece of rocket from a recent space mission - possibly even from Saturn V (above), the first rocket to launch astronauts to the moon.
Whatever WT1190F is, we can at least hold off on any panic that it might do some serious damage to life on Earth.
If it doesn’t burn up when entering the planet’s atmosphere, it is on course to land in the Indian Ocean, just off the coast of Sri Lanka, on November 13.
However, astronomy software developer Bill Gray added: “I would not necessarily want to be going fishing directly underneath it.”
