On conflicts and emotions

The USA seems to be in a constant fight with countries in the Middle East. Mainly because those countries are muslim nations that treat women badly, oppress their civilians and so forth. Right? The single most extreme muslim country is Saudi Arabia. Women are not allowed to even drive! On top of that, the country is known to support terrorist organisation Al Qaida.

So why is it that nobody seems to wonder why the United States of America and other western nations sell billions worth of weapons to the most extreme muslim country in the world?


Amidst all controversies, lies and wars you'd almost forget by far most people in the world are cool. Like the person who shared these behind the scenes pictures of the epic movie 'The Wall' by Pink Floyd: http://www.oldpicsarchive.com/behind-the-scenes-of-pink-floyds-the-wall-14-photos/14/

Have you seen the movie? Very impressive and emotional!

A lot of people (especially men) are afraid to show their emotions. They think it's a sign of weakness to show others you can be hurt. I think it's a sign of strength to show you're human because humans make formidable opponents. It's emotions that drive us. So yes, I cried when Trevor Bolder, bass player in my favourite band, Uriah Heep and one of Ziggy Stardust's 'Spiders from Mars' died. It's only natural.

Is there anything that makes you cry?

Let me know in the comments.
