Interesting time we are living in! (in China that usually is a curse)…
Everybody (almost everybody in the Arab world) is applauding what happened in Tunisia, and some in Jordan are saying it should happen here… Really? REALLY?
Try this on for size you nincompoops who are bleating Revolution!
What are the effing alternatives?
Have you even thought of that!
How about before jumping lemming like off the cliff you think twice.
There are no alternatives, we live in a country that if said change happens there are several horrible things that will happen.
We fall under the Islamists and clerical rule, think Iran think Saud Wahhabbi! And NO it will not be milder it will be worse. I for one am not prepared to be ruled by bullies and thugs who have no concept of free speech or thought! I will not kowtow to some twit who thinks he has an inline to God and he thinks he can tell me what to do.
A tribal rule (which will eventually lead to civil war), look around and see the tribes and their representation, do you feel secure, do you think they will look out for the general public? Or do you think nepotism even worse than before will rear its ugly head. Nope I think not!
Civil War, we had that in the 70’s and trust me it will not be easier, though the Jordanians have forgiven what happened, they haven’t forgotten and with the way things are in general it will be bloody and messy and NONE of us want to go down that road again.
For those of you bleating change of the Revolting kind think of this:
You will have no rights.
You will have even less say than you do now.
You will not be allowed to dress as you please.
You will not be allowed to do as you please. And admit it you can actually do that now.
Kudos to the Tunisians for saying Enough! BUt remember this we are a different people, with a different set of problems. We do not have the luxury of Revolt, because there are to many vultures waiting around to pick at our bones. Worst case scenario there happens something in our town I know for a fact my friends and I will be amongst the first to stand in front of a firing squad (yes you heard me) because that is the way revolution goes.
So no thank you, do not presume to speak on my behalf, because I really do like my life as it is. And I do not need idiots to change it for me.
Wake up! Whatever change happens it definitely will not be for the better, because with sudden change chaos prevails.
