War and Peace
IT IS CONFIRMED. NOBODY WANTS PEACE. THE WORLD WANTS TO LIVE IN HELL. HELL IS WHAT WE SHALL HAVE. IF ANYONE THINKS THAT PEACE IS IN THE PIPELINE, THEY MUST BE DREAMING!!

WAKE UP!! AND SMELL THE LIES, THE GREED FOR POWER AND THE OBSESSION TO SHOW IT. IT WAS NEVER ABOUT WMD OR ANY PARTICULAR PERSON. IT WAS ALWAYS ABOUT SHOWING POWER AND USING IT.

WELCOME TO THE REAL WORLD. WHO GIVES A **** ABOUT ANYTHING ANYMORE....

Errant athletes VERSUS Exams
Whoa .. I really don't know what to make of this .. NST, July 12, 2006 (by Ranjini Thangaraju) - "ATHLETES who have to date benefited from the Doha 2006 programme but decline to compete in the Asian Games to concentrate on year-end exams will be axed from the programme immediately.The National Sports Council (NSC) has decided to get tough with these athletes as they signed the contracts fully aware that national exams, such as the Sijil Pelajaran Malaysia (SPM), coincide with the Sea Games and Asian Games. NSC director-general Datuk Dr. Ramlan Aziz added that prior to renewing their contracts, athletes should first be aware of their calendar for the year." Hmmm .. this is a tough one. Can one CHANGE their mind? and decide otherwise ... Is this person paying from his OWN pocket for the training of these athletes? Is this a catastrophe? This are normal occurances of life ... BUT ... nooo ... the authority must act tough .. it is ALL about officialdom again ... and on small and little things .. No doubt it is a contract of sort, but not a biblical one, it is human made, and contracts can be altered and amended, based on circumstances, what is the big deal here ... Let us get tough on BIG things, like sugar smuggling, illegal logging, abuse of power by people in power, big fat ego of officials, the little Napoleans ... aiyaa, tak tau lah ...

Takes two to Tango ..
From Yahoo .. Materazzi admits insulting Zidane ...Marco Materazzi admits he insulted Zinedine Zidane before the France captain head-butted him in the World Cup final. Materazzi denies calling him a "terrorist." "I did insult him, it's true," Materazzi said in Tuesday's Gazzetta dello Sport. "But I categorically did not call him a terrorist. I'm not cultured and I don't even know what an Islamic terrorist is."

Zidane and Materazzi exchanged words after Italy broke up a French attack in extra-time of Sunday's final in Berlin. Seconds later, Zidane lowered his head and rammed Materazzi in the chest, knocking him to the ground. Zidane was sent off, reducing France to 10 men. Italy won the game in a penalty shootout.

Now here is something that we should also know:

Materazzi is no stranger to controversy. He was suspended for two months for punching Siena defender Bruno Cirillo after a Serie A game in February 2004, and earned condemnation following a brutal tackle on Sweden and Juventus striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic in October 2005. Materazzi was also sent off three times while playing for Everton in the 1998-99 season.

One Italian senator even suggested that Materazzi — also sent off three times while playing for Everton in the 1998-99 season — didn't merit selection for the Italian team because of his physical style.

Zidane also is known for having a temper. He was sent off for stomping on a Saudi Arabian opponent at the 1998 World Cup, while at Germany 2006 he was banned for France's group match against Togo. Five years ago with Juventus, Zidane head-butted an opponent in a Champions League match against Hamburger SV after being tackled from behind.

Thing is, it takes two to make things happen. What is there to investigate. One admitted to insulting the other, and the other reacted. Oh puhleeze .. don't give this holier than thou Bull**** .... YOU would probably do the same if you were provoked ... and in the heat of the moment, ANYTHING can happen.

Don't worry about it being a BAD example to other kids .. they can see more damaging things than a head butt .. they saw Maradona scoring a goal with the HAND, they can see other innocent kids blown up by the Israelis, they can see other kids dying of hunger in African countries, they can see kids sleeping in the streets ... and many more .. a head butt .. hah .. aiyaaa .. tak tau lah ..

So Long Agassi ...
Andre Agassi blows kisses to the spectators. Rafael Nadal has ended Agassi's Wimbledon career with a 7-6 (7/5), 6-2, 6-4 win that brutally underscored the 16-year gap between tennis's elder statesman and his heir apparent as the sport's biggest personality.

Andre Agassi's voice wavered and his eyes welled up. After years of dealing with injuries, after months of contemplation, he finally spoke the words he knew he had to, at the place he knew he had to. Turning what was expected to be a routine pre-Wimbledon news conference into something significant, Agassi announced Saturday he will retire after this year's U.S. Open, leaving tennis after two decades during which he collected a career Grand Slam and morphed from an "Image Is Everything" youngster to elder statesman.
