grynch, I actually reread the CNN flash on Ghadafi and this is what it shows

-- Libyan leader Moammar Gadhafi said he won't step down and wants to die as a martyr in his country.

Watch live coverage now on http://CNN.com/Live

couldnt make it up really could you
anyway... enough of this school boy banter... back onto topic ( before the mods slap our hands with a steel edged ruler )

it does appear increasingly likely that Gadhafi will get his martyrdom wish... I heard on Sky news this morning that..someone... I didn't catch who, but one of the senior Gov. ministers of Libya was calling for the army to take sides with the revolution.

Re: Nostradamus and the current revolts

Yep, and furthermore the FT is quoting calls by anti corruption officials to take a look at the Ghadafi mafia s finances (maybe they want to pick up a few tips) the guy is toast.

Re: Nostradamus and the current revolts

Egypt, Iraq,Morocco,Abu Dhabi all announcing tenders to buy wheat this week, with Turkey having bought last wekk and Jordan also.Saudi allocated extra finance to increase wheat stocks. That is the proof that these countries will be knocking on us/european/argentine doors for more food.

Don't you remember when we discussed the importance of accuracy?

So you failed the O level in english and now it appears you have "ADD" as well.

So sad.

perhaps to someone with Asperger syndrome but I'm afraid I've missed the connection.

perhaps you could be so good as to fill me in.

Re: Nostradamus and the current revolts

Anyhow and not to be distracted from a serious subject, I still believe that a rising food demand from the worlds oppressed countries could bring confrontation to our door and it shouldn`t be dismissed lightly. China alone needs to produce over 580 million metric tonnes of grain in 2020 to avoid a starving population crisis (its at about 530/540 today) Its that or mass immigration across the med sea into Southern Europe and that is not something I would like to see if you knwo any French City well.

ok git... may I call you git by the way?... You seem to have issues with the US of A but I'm not going to sit here and defend America and all it's actions over the centuries for as mentioned above it is easy to look at past actions with hindsight, but are you going to tell me that Britain back in the days when it too was a world power that she acted totally altruistically in all it's dealings ?

Anyway... nevermind all that... I try not to get involved in political dealings here as ( as I have stated many times previously ) my primary reason for being here is to have a bit of a laugh.. and so far you have managed to provide a few laughs.

lets keep it like that eh git?

cheerio, pip pip
Huh? Grynch, Askim! (my love)

I didn't even think about the US... I was talking of countries in general! And you should already know me enough to know that I am the first to defend USA? Don't you? I never bashed them, ever! (Except when they laugh at us, Canadians eh!)
