Storming Juno

I just finished watching STORMING JUNO, the dramatization of three groups of Canadian soldiers on D-Day, 1944. It was not the typical Hollywood style blood and guts war depiction.
It just showed them, ordinary guys in an impossible situation, trying to survive.
I thought one part was pretty telling when an actor said that most were there because the army paid $1/day. It was at a time when the economy back home was bleak.
Near the end there was a segment called REMEMBERING JUNO. They interviewed the survivors from that horror more than 65 years ago. Moments were still fresh wounds remembered at times during the documentary part for the veterans.
Despite my anti war stance this movie is important. Because it showcases the human spirit rising
above the environment into which it is placed! That part is truly uplifting.
Our complacency is leading us back to that scenario once again!

War, what is it good for?

As it says in the anti Vietnam song of a long gone but not forgotten era, NOTHING!
We are impressed with certain memes about our own individual reality. Whether it's a physical war of flesh and bone or one of the decimation of spirit it is still vile and reprehensible!
As the adage goes 'a picture is worth a thousand words', this one is 1000X 1000!
Thanks to Walther A. Skjaervik for the portrayal.
Hopefully a touch of humanity has returned to me as a result!

Niels Harrit -- Chemist - 9/11 Expert Testimony.mp4

And a little more to ponder.

Toronto Hearings

Due to it being a very event condensed weekend I came in late in the conversation and live stream coming from Ustream.
I am very heartened by this event being so public. The conversation should be out in the open not in the shadows. We, by nature, are not always agreeable or in unison, but should be able to agree to disagree. We, by nature, are neither perfect or omniscient, and by having this conversation will
be able to overcome those shortcomings and arrive at a truth.
Whether some major events in history are fact or fallacy, coincidence or conspiracy is not the point. The scrutiny to investigate by scientific norms in a fair and equal manner should be tantamount.
Some of the concepts discussed in this event are very scary, but seem, to me, to make sense. I, as mentioned before, do not have concrete evidence to either the fact or fallacy. I am however very intrigued to know if I'm right or wrong. Hopefully I'm wrong! Sadly, historically, I don't think I am!
