I've been pleasantly surprised by the natural beauty in this country. The images we see in the media paint a picture of Lebanon as a rubbish-filled desert with crazy drivers (which is true 😂) and constant war. But the reality is different. This place has no shortage of things that need some TLC but it also has some incredible scenery. Mountains, waterfalls, turquoise beaches and near-year round balmy weather makes Lebanon the quintessential bucket-list item.
What citizens told me about the ever increasing challenges of life in Afghanistan 🇦🇫⠀
"In November 2016, I spent three days with a diverse group of men in Kabul. One was a Pashto speaker from Kunduz with Taliban-supporting inclinations. Another was an ethnically Turkmen merchant from a town close to the border with Turkmenistan. Two more were Farsi-speakers from Kabul who worked in security agencies and were assisting the Turkmen trader locate a loan defaulter.⠀
Over the three days that we all met, there were moments of friction in the encounters, mostly about the various languages they spoke and the extent to which these were accorded equal respect in Afghanistan.⠀
But there were also repeated expressions of solidarity. For instance, the Taliban-inclined Pashtun gave permission for the other men to drink some home brew spirit made from sugar cane while he enjoyed a cigarette.⠀
At the end of the three days of detective work and socialising, which included several trips to a part of Kabul known as “Al Qaida central”, the men rose to bid each other farewell. But only after they had exchanged telephone numbers, remarking: “We can be of use to each other if we fall into the wrong hands.”⠀
Encounters such as these are a recurrent feature of life in Afghanistan. They are a critical reminder of the subtle ways in which Afghanistan’s people handle the ever-shifting divisions and conflicts that have ripped through the country over the past 40 years. My friends’ ability to forge relations and think pragmatically, offers a rare ray of hope in an increasingly dark situation."⠀

According to the experts, the APT33 group is gathering #information on Saudi Arabia’s military aviation capabilities to gain insight into rivals in the #MiddleEast .
Exactly my thought. Some brown men expect and insist on getting virgin Mary herself when he is out and about playing games with girls, who they slut shame afterwards. The hypocricy at its finest. And when one confronts them about this issue, they will come up with the most ridiculous metaphors that they probably heard from their great uncles/aunts that goes like "well, how would you call a lock that has allowed many keys to enter them? Very weak and dull" The only weak thing in this whole lame metaphor is your mentality. .

You may not agree with what happened this past Sunday, or maybe you do. Either way, it's polarized a problem that needed to be addressed. This administration, and our own president, have taken steps repeatedly to divide us as a nation. As a whole, swings have been taken at civil rights. The elderly. Healthcare. A great American past time. All it seems to have accomplished, to me anyway, is draw more dividing lines between us, the people of the United States, and opened up wounds that have taken decades to heal. Now more than ever, with the country in debt, states that are beyond poor, the threat of treason being tossed around, N. Korea becoming a nuclear power, and the middle East not far behind attaining their own nuclear arsenal, we need to stand together. To find some common ground as one people, one nation, one country, strong together. j.c.s.
