And the flame was lit!

Hello Skinlovers!

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.
The first:
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.

The Second:
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!

The Third:
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.

    Hmm.. You’re right. People and their mindless revolution ramblings.. just like everything else! No regard to the consequences whatsoever.. How about this 3rd scenario: Army taking over until someone else is announced ruler? Yeesh.. As if Policemen running or standing idle with their AK47s isn’t enough, imagine that presence x10, ja? Not so pleasant… Maybe curfews?

    OR.. lol, maybe the U.S. would come to the rescue and then you’d have American troopers running around trying to keep the peace because a “divine intervention” is what they do best, no? 🙂

      The problem is this, the police and the military have tribal affiliations, and that’s where it would really hit the fan.
      Add to the whole mess if the outside influence were to come, it would not be the USA but the United States of Israel we would be dealing with! 😀

    I’m the first to admit that I’m a political ignoramus; I simply have no interest in the subject – mainly because it gives me heartburn when I follow it. And yet, I’m going to state my two scents regardless of their dubious worth.

    Tunis and Egypt are not Jordan. Both of those countries have grossly unjust ruling regimes, while Jordan has a pretty progressive one as far as Middle Eastern countries go. Our monarchy is trying to open Jordan up and introduce new laws and policies that promote socioeconomic development, which frankly Jordan could do a lot with. If it’s going slower than what some people want, well tough – Jordan isn’t an easy country to rule. We have barely any worthwhile resources, we’re running low on even the most basic of resources (water, since the Kingdom is the fourth most water impoverished country in the world), and we’re smack in the middle of the vortex of chaos that is the Middle East.

    Sure there are a lot of issues that need handling, but it takes time. The only people I can imagine calling for a revolution in Jordan and those who don’t know get how good they’ve got it, or those who’ve just brainlessly like making trouble. And I agree with you, if anything like that happens in Jordan, we’re all pretty much going to be screwed over.

      I keep on repeating to the idjits, that if we didn’t have what we have (good or bad it doesn’t matter) that we would be screwed!
      There is nothing more abhorrent to me than coffee table socialists & revolutionaries and unfortunately they come from some of the richest families in town.
