Blessed is the season which engages the whole world in a conspiracy of love! [Hamilton Wright Mabie]


A very nice discussion with Peter Fogel inspired me to send this message out. Visit Peter's Forum on Chanukah

Christmas Celebrations World Over
MAY YOUR CHRISTMAS BE BLESSED

Christams Songs -Click above

Christmas is one of the biggest events and celebrations for the people belonging to the Christian faith.


The Birth of Jesus


Now it happened in those days, that a decree went out from Caesar Augustus that all the world should be enrolled. This was the first enrollment made.

It would be a big mess and wrong to assume that it is only celebrated among the Christians. With the world becoming a global village, Christmas is now celebrated in many countries around the world.

Caroling, feasting, and gift-giving along with the prayers and wishes - Christmas is celebrated with high spirits in various parts of the world. Though the mode of celebration, the dates and the traditions vary, the spirit remains the same everywhere.

While most of us celebrate it as a festive season spreading over a week, for some it is a month long festival that starts with the Advent on Sunday next to November 26 and ends on January 6 with the feast of Epiphany.

Read on to have a glimpse over the different ways in which it is celebrated in different countries of the world.

PUTIN DENOUNCES PLANNED SHIELD
~A RUSSIAN WARNING ~
~DON'T CHANGE THE BALANCE!~

Putin has long bashed Washington for its plans to place 10 bunker-protected rockets in Eastern Europe, arguing it was a threat against Russian territory and provokes a new arms race. At a joint news conference in Moscow Tuesday with Portuguese Prime Minister Jose Socrates, Putin fired another round at the United States.

'We consider it harmful and dangerous to transform Europe into a powder keg and fill it with new forms of weapons,'

'It creates new unnecessary risks for the entire system of international and European relations.'

After the decision from USA staton missiles in Poland and Czechia Russia responds with a new super weapon, the RS-24 missiles.

The new RS-24 missile can be armed with up to 10 different warheads and is intended to replace Russia's earlier generation intercontinental missiles such as the RS-18 and RS-20.


RUSSIAN MISSILES
SUCCESSFULLY TESTED

Read the article MOSCOW (Reuters) - Russia successfully test-fired a new intercontinental ballistic missile on Tuesday featuring multiple warheads that Moscow said could pierce any missile defence system, including the planned U.S. shield in Europe.  .....

WHY?  IS RUSSIA NOT TRUSTED?

"Putin for weeks has turned up the heat in his rhetoric against the West," Kallmorgen added. "He knows that the Europeans are not united on Russia."

Relations between the European Union and Russia have strongly deteriorated in recent months; Putin at a recent EU-Russia summit in Samara clashed with German Chancellor Angela Merkel, who holds the rotating EU presidency, because Merkel criticized Moscow for democracy and human rights shortcomings.

Diplomatic rows with Poland, Estonia and Lithuania have only exacerbated EU-Russian ties, also because Poland -- where the U.S. missiles will be stationed -- and the Czech Republic -- where the radar system will be built -- are two former Warsaw Pact countries that have turned to the United States as their man strategic and security ally.

It's not that the West didn't make any mistakes dealing with Russia:

"Washington did not act smart to begin with," he said. "The issue was debated at the NATO-Russian council, but the Americans could have engaged in confidential talks with Moscow before going public with their plans." (Read whole article)

My comments:
Russia in not former USSR, it is not ewither Iraq, Iran or Korea. Their weapon industry is super modern and you could find it in any place in Western Europe or USA. They have everything USA have and their weapons can destroy the world many times over. We don't need more American weapons stationed in Europe. We in European Union have the ability to destroy Europe and whole the world at least one time. We don't need Russian or Americal weapons. One time is enought for us.

My opinion is "Don't play with the fire".
We need peace more than ever.

Don't let madness control the world
