      Hiroshima

      14 minutes ago

      Right to the point. I watched Obama's speech just now and I noted some people online talking about Hiroshima, the A-Bomb, and the morals behind it. Apologies to all for the proceeding long rant.


      Typically, I'm the type of person who listens to both sides of the arguments/aisle and finds a middle ground because the world is typically not so black-and-white.


      But this...this I have strong feelings about (shocker, right?).


      Firstly, I have to make note that being an American is third on my list after being Muslim and then Arab. A lot of people might point a finger right away and say, "You're not an American, so meh meh meh your opinion is invalid. To which I say, NO! Whether I am a Muslim, American, Japanese, or even Bangladeshi, a valid argument is a valid argument and in the question of morality race, ethnicity, whatever, is not a prerequisite for if.


      Right away, I'm gonna be frank. I truly believe with all my heart of hearts that the atomic bombing of Hiroshima & Nagasaki, along with the firebombings of Tokyo and other civilian cities as well, were morally unjust and a despicable action.


      In every single argument I've ever had with pro bomb, their arguments were in my opinion selfish and/or misinformed. Here's the cold hard facts first:


      1. Don't let anyone lie to you. The Japanese Emperor at the end of WWII was at the brink of surrendering due to the heave losses incurred during the Tokyo firebombings and military bases being wiped out over the pacific.
      2. After the defeat of the Nazis, the Soviet Union turned its focus onto Japan and was about to open a second front of attack which would have demolished any possible "extension of war"
      3. Before the end of WWII, the US and the Soviet Union were already at very touchy and already animosity was built between them. The USSR was already sending spies to steal secrets including the A-bomb. So part of the reason why the US didn't want to rely on the USSR's involvement in Japan was because they wanted to take the initiative of showing their strength to freak them out.
      4. It is a well known and accepted fact that Harry S. Truman was racist as fuck and that is evident in how he handled WWII, Korea, and his utter disregard and villianification of Ho Chi Minh's request for aid in Vietnam before the US entered there.
      5. It is documented that advisers have suggested a display, rather than an actual use, of the weapon would be enough to morally demoralize the Japanese military and the Emperor. It is also documented that that suggested was utterly disregarded in favor of using the weapon where it would cause the most excessive damage possible. That is why Hiroshima & Nagasaki were both left completely untouched during the war in order to take a pre/post bomb stats of the damage

      Here's the moral part of it all:


      1. The Japanese bombed a MILITARY base. Not civilian, so don't talk to me about "they started it first"
      2. It was only the Japanese who were interned in camps during WWII. Not the Germans or the Italians, but the Japanese. The obvious distaste of Asians early in the 20th century is a clear indication to me of why Japan was easy chosen as the target back then
      3. The high-and-mighty always talk about "think of the children...killing civilians is always wrong....etc...etc...etc...". Especially think about how the recent waves of horrid terrorist attacks happened and what everyone was raging about, "rawwwrrrrr if they had balls they'd attack the military head on and not kill innocent civilians minding their own business....rawwwrrr rawwwrr rawwrr!". And look at what those same people say about the hundreds of thousands of, in my opinion, was genocide committed against the civilians of Japan and you will see SUPER FAST how hypocritical their arguments are.
      4. "It saved lives". This is the most disgusting argument of all. If you were to talk to them about different context or in philosophy class, most of these high-and-mighty would say "the death of one innocent to save many is not justifiable"...except where it suits them...like in Japan...like in Vietnam...like in Cambodia...like with the Native Americans...etc...etc...etc...
      5. 4 cont.: And lets face it, this argument is clearly stating, "killing a civilian who has no control over the war nor has the power to end it nor did he sign up knowing the risks of war is totally fine to save the life of a trained killer with training and weapons honed for ending another's life". That, to me, is sick and disgusting. its so easy for these high-and-mighty to justify themselves this way, but are SUPER FAST AND UNFORGIVING to hunt down any former Nazi officer involved in the Jewish internment camps.

      I honestly can go on and on and on and I know this is gonna make some people pissed and think I'm some radical or whatever the hell they think, but as I stated before, I'm Muslim and Arab first and American third. If anything, I'm the third-party viewer with neither support for one or the other. Actually, being US born and basically US raised, it should be that I would defend the US more than a country I only visited for 3 weeks my entire life. But that's not the case because I'm in search of real and true justice, even if its against my fellow Arabs and country.


      So to conclude: As I said, I saw Obama's speech, and I am glad that this guy is finally breaking these stupid bullshit taboos such as, god forbid, "negotiating with enemies" and "visiting the country, who is your ally, that you bombed and at least show some sort of respect and remorse". I'm not an Obama fanatic, but this man has rebuilt most burned bridges that were demolished by previous presidents. And I honestly think that he really wanted to apologize for '45, but I think other powerful entities prevented him from doing that and ended up settling with just giving a speech.


      Sorry for the long rant. If i were to summarize in one sentence, it would all be: The US should accept it was wrong to use the A-Bomb against civilians in WWII.

      SSD killed the Alienware

      1 week ago

      Read that to the tune of video killed the radio star.


      So I tried to geek out and "upgrade" my Alienware laptop to use SSD.


      Long story short, things happened and my motherboard is shot. GREAT.


      So I'm computer-less for a while. Thankfully it's under warranty and Dell is going to fix it for me, but I'm gonna be laptop-less for a while. Good times.


      I should totally take this time to pick up a book and do some reading! Yup, totally should do that. As soon as I check my mail, and blog, and some cat videos on my phone.


      Oh, I just signed up for YouTube Red 3 month trial for 99 cents, gonna need to make good use of that.


      And don't forget that comment someone made that goes against my opinion that I must give my 5-page rant about how their views is wrong and I'm right.


      Yup, it's good to get away from technology once in a while and smell the fresh air and go out doors! Can't wait to do that, after I pass this angry birds level.

      There are no stupid questions...

      1 week ago

      Just stupid people. I had this interaction with someone who messaged my gaming group page and the dialogue went somewhat like this (translated from Arabic):


      Guest (herein use G): Hello

      Me: Hello

      G: I want Uncharted (4)

      Me: Then you're in the right place

      G: Sweet!

      Me: We play Uncharted and we post our walkthroughs Daily. You can keep track of the gameplay through our website

      G: I don't want to watch, I want to play

      Me: And while watching us, you can see where you can find all the secret items and how you may get to them

      G: What am I supposed to do with secret places? I want to discover them myself

      Me: Well, that's the beauty of it all! That way you don't have to waste time looking for them and that way you don't miss any either.

      G: I don't have the game man!

      Me: We understand your difficult situation. That is why we broadcast our games here for everyone to watch on the site.

      G: Fine, do you want to share the game?

      Me: Oh, we share the game online all the time with our members!!! All you have to do is go to our youtube channel and you can share your experience there with us.

      G: Man, listen to me! Sheesh, if I was speaking with a foreigner he'd understand me. What i want from you is to give me the game so that I can play with it on my PS4.

      Me: Ohhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh!!!! Well, that's REALLY EASY. All you have to do is:

      • Turn on your PS4
      • Then on your Main menu...
      • Open the YouTube app. Then search for our channel on YouTube and make sure to display on full screen
      • Now all you have to do is hold the controller and pretend as though its you on the screen

      G: Go stick it up your ass!

      Me: Thank you for following our page. We hope to hear back from you soon.


      Typically I'm very good with giving hints and help and aid however way I can. But once in a while we get an idiot like this who wants either a free game or money or something just because they ask...just because they ASK!


      So I handle them the best way possible, by being super nice in the most passively aggressive way possible. Hey, I'm not making a single penny from any of this and at 100% loss. I think I earn the right to be a jerk to idiots.

      Part 2, this time with actual interview

      2 weeks ago

      First of all, I have to say, I had to stop. I mean, my God! I spent almost 10 hours just fiddling and playing and tweaking and changing this video, that its 5:30 AM right now and if i didn't stop myself from continuing I would never finish.


      Second, once again, I request your help to give me any and all advise you got about this video. Brutal honesty and productive criticism is appreciated the most.


      And let me first explain before someone says anything: Yes, the censorship had to be made. The audience I'm posting for can be very very young, and the lady i censored as practically wearing nothing. So for that particular audience, a decision had to be made to pixelate her out.


      On hind sight, I now learned a little bit more about masking and how that works...so there's that! Therefore, please, no need for comments on that.


      You guys have been awesome and fantastic regarding my last two videos! And I learned quite a bit along with gotten some good tips on how I could improve. That's what I love about this community. Everyone is always willing to help a brotha out. Thank you all in advance, and I hope you like this video.

      As promised

      2 weeks ago

      This is Part 1 of my report of DreamHack. Its obviously shaky and rough, and I've already pretty much figured out what I need to do next time to resolve my camera shaking issue.


      But, again, I ask for your brutal honest opinion and any tips to help me make the production better. This time, I've added the subtitles and still playing with how to make this more efficient.


      Your input is greatly appreciated

      Need your help

      2 weeks ago

      As I wrote in my previous Journal, I went to the DreamHack convention to try out my new passion for journalism.


      Well, it isn't just Journalism I'm going for, but video editing as well. I thought I had a ton of material to work with, but as I quickly found out I have a LOT to learn and my first lesson is: THERE IS NEVER TOO MUCH MATERIAL.


      As such, I've put together this small introductory video for my Arab viewers regarding what it was like in DreamHack. It took me a long time to make, but I think it is a good start; but here is where I need your help.


      I KNOW this is very...basic. I know this is very amateur quality. What I need though is some non BS, honest-to-god, brutal constructive criticism. I'm not looking for praise, I'm looking for how can I be better?


      Thus far, I only have my Nexus 6p for my filming as I have very VERY little money; so type of constructive criticism I'd like to hear would be something cheap I can use to help stabilize the shakiness of the camera and a cheap way to get better audio (as my future videos will show).


      So please understand my situation in terms of money, and help me find clever ways to make better production content (and yes, needing to shave would also count as constructive criticism).

      Been awhile, and I hope all is well with you and the misses. I saw this news report today and I hope all is well with any friends and family in the area: www.live5news.com/story/23980331/militias-attac...

      • vatazes

        2 years ago

        Thanks! I think one of the best things is the mortgage payment is just a tad bit more than what we pay now in rent. And the house is in better shape than our current place, so the water and electric bills should be A LOT lower.

        We pre-ordered the Xbox One from Amazon and its a lot better than I thought it would be. I was a bit worried about the confusing reports from Microsoft itself, but seeing it in action... WOW. Other than getting used to how it works (a little different from the 360), its wonderful. We can control the TV with it, which is a perk when I'm busy and the kids are driving me nuts ;). It's made Skyping with the grandparents and other relatives a lot easier. The baby was in awe last night when we talked with her grandfather and she saw him on the TV. I think about the only thing I dislike about it, is the YouTube app. I liked that better on the 360. Easier to get around and organize things, find videos to watch, etc. On the One its just like the app they have for it on BluRay players, which stink. Unless you have it paired to a mobile device, its a worthless app.

        Have you been able to get one of the new consoles, or are you waiting/having to wait? have heard good stuff about the PS4 as well, but no games for it are catching my attention enough to want one.

        Big changes likes what Libya is going through, always come with growing pains. It will eventually work itself out, I just hope everyone stays safe until that happens. Keep positive (even if its difficult and it seems impossible).

        Hey Carrie. Thank you for your comment. Ya things aren't looking as good as I'd hoped there. It's really saddening. The government is absolutely useless right now and they have no control at all. My uncles are in Tripoli and they do nothing. I'm in Switzerland right now and honestly I want to change things there, but it's like everyone is grabbing at power and being absolutely selfish and power hungry. I hope something works out there.

        It's hard. I don't know to be honest.

I mean, yeah there are some parts of the US that are backwards and racist...but those places are not really known for their higher education and multicultural collaboration. in swiss, its different. everyone is a (bill | mill)ionare with private jets and highly educated, yet unapologetically racist.

I was wondering if you could give your perspective on a news piece that I just stumbled on, which I'm pretty sure is mostly the peanut butter brownie batter that comes out of a cow's anus. But still, it's worth reading to see if the Syrian government is doing a little bit of underhanded propoganda:

      www.gagnauga.is/index.php?Fl=Greinar&ID=215

      Like I said, I'm pretty sure that it's less factual than Westboro Baptist Church's Guide to America, but since you are a lot closer and a lot more involved in the situation over there than some dumbass from the west coast of the US, I would love to hear your thoughts.

      And on a more happy note, good luck to your athletes in the Games!! I'll of course root for American athletes, but will take pride in the accomplishments of any athlete, regardless of their nationality.

        No kidding!! I've been watching the diving competitions, the Chinese are like machines. And that girl in the 4x100 medley, damn, I'm pretty sure I could have water skied behind her. But that's what I love about the Olympics, is watching people push themselves to the utmost limits of their abilities, a true test of what a human being is capable of.

        And thanks for your insight, I just wanted a bit of confirmation that this was, in fact, a load of fetid dingo's kidneys.

        Wooooow! Same old tape, same track, even the same crummy recording.

        You know its a huge load of crap when they start tacking in everybody as the perps. Alqaeda is in cahoots with Obama while their buddy Sharon is pouring them wine from their private stash funded from how much money they're getting from the wealth of oil Syria has. Give me a break.

        Finally, Syria has no worthwhile reserves to speak of to cause any of this. Their people are screaming and crying for help, asking "would you have helped if we had oil?"

        The only real terrorist there are Bashar and his goons. I personally know people affected by his reign. I personally see Syria refugees here in libya. They all concur that the monster must be removed. That soul-less punk in the interview will get his just deserve one way or another.

        On the lighter note, thank you for your kind wishes. It was great to see the new flag instead of that trashy green rag. Good luck to your teams as well, China is giving you guys a run for your money this year.

        If you see evil, then change it with your hands. If you can't, then with your tongue. If you can't, then in your prayers (and that is the weakest form of faith).

        maybe a post on a social-media site will not move mountains, but its a voice nonetheless. looking blindly the other way doesn't exactly solve the problem either, does it?

        Rwanda, Cambodia, China, Vietnam, Libya, Syria...all have/had similar atrocities that were only discovered decades due to lack of giving a voice to the voiceless.

        By no means does this make me a saint. Evil is prominent all over the world and we all can't fight every single fight. I can't fight every single fight. I just speak what my heart tells me.

        Yeah, man. I kept up with your journals when all the chaos started and have prayed for you and the whole country on many occasions.

        I'm glad things are looking up. I honestly don't watch the news a whole lot, so even though I knew about Ghaddafi's death, I haven't heard too much about it afterward. The fact that you feel the government has gone in a good direction is a great thing, indeed. Good luck to ya, buddy.

      • madmanmoe Keeper of Shenanigans

        4 years ago

        Hi,

        Thanks for your concern. Yup, I'm still living in Libya. Its up and down here to be honest. Good days and Bad. Generally leaning more towards the good though. People are enjoying their new found freedom, and others are taking advantage of those freedoms.

        The government is trying to keep up with people's demands, and considering they're coming from complete chaos and only working for four months, they haven't been able to deliver.

        Injured fighters are being sent abroad to get medical treatments, while in some parts separate militias are fighting each other.

        Its just all over the place, though i wouldn't say complete chaos. the best analogy i can come up with is imagine a whole country that's been hit by something like Katrina, that's sorta what its like. Expect chaos for some time, but I still have high hopes. The government, as far as i can tell, is really aiming for improvement, and the people are aiming for just the same--though sometimes both side have cases where they aren't exactly going about it the right way.

        My plan is to give this government until 2013. If things don't start shaping up or start taking form, then I'd worry.

        thanks again for your concern.

        ...sigh....

        as for gaming, i'm excited cuz im gonna get my power brick for my xbox next week and i can finally go back to playing fable and actually get some Mass Effect 2 gaming in there too.

        4 years ago

        Bismillah,

        hmmm...where do i begin? lets see if i can summ it up:

        the main regime and his head hanchos are pretty much gone, but there are a lot of other positions (managers, teachers, power and energy, etc...) people still holding position because of whatever reason (some say cuz they're the most knowledgeable in their field...whatever).

        another thing is that more and more dirt is being dug out against some NTC members and other people with connections to the current government.

        so basically, the people are fed up. there are still acts of theft and corruption going on and if that's still there, then what was the whole revolution about?

        to some extent, some of the claims from the people here are just: getting rid of former loyalists, making current government more transparent, getting rid of people who are only trying to benefit themselves, etc...

        some other demands are not so just: we want money now, how come nothing's being fixed?, at least when gaddafi was here [insert complaint]. stuff like that.

        the people who have former ties with previous regime are sometimes hard to point out and find. i honestly have no idea how we will get rid of them all, and i can't give a solution either to be honest.

        I dont want to blab too much or give too many excuses, but the bottom line, to me at least, is this: when coming from chaos, its gonna take a long time to get back to just ZERO. getting from Zero to something will take even longer. im not surprised if there are former loyalists still within the ranks, and i'm not surprised. eventually through time, those guys will be found out and they will be kicked out and dealt with,

        i hate to use mobster analogy, but it feels like more fighting going to happen before all the bad blood is wiped out.

        case in point: Bani Waleed. all of a sudden the whole city rose up green flags and killed some libyan fighters in support for Gaddafi. I'm not surprised at all. IM PISSED! but not surprised.

        so i hope i didn't ramble too much, and i hope i answered ur question. the best i can explain the situation here in Libya is that its still hopeful for a better future, it still aims for a complete facelift, and the people wont hesitate to call Bullshit when they see it. But that's gonna take lots of time.

        thanks for the followup and i appreciate your support man.

        im so sorry it took me forever to reply to you. the internet here is still not very stable and i dont get on much anymore.

        anyways, im real bad at critiquing, because i dont know what the benchmark is. i wont lie to you, i can't say the pics are top notch and that the character looks awesome. though you are around 17, it has to be pointed out that that's pretty amazing work for someone of your calibur.

        with that said, i can only advise the following: pictures and animation dont mean squat if the content is not solid! take RvB season 1 in itself. the animation was sooooo bad and they can't really do anything great in the game, but the content was super solid and that's what made it work. if your content, story, or whatever ur doing is solid, you should be straight man.

        again, super sorry it took so long to reply, and i hope i wasn't too harsh. good luck on the contest man, let me know how u do!

        It feels strange to give the RT guys the dino-treatment, since I try not to relate them to any of their characters--although I have to admit I've imagined their chupathingy-counterparts reading lines from the podcast once in a while (it's a little wacky, if fun.)
