And the winner is…

“All the world’s a stage, And all the men and women merely players;…”

I really like these lines of Shakespeare. It is an universal general assessment for all humanity, that exactly coincides with human behavior in every age from a time period which seems to be before time. Be sure, even if the calendar shows the year of 2500, these words will be compatible with humanity.

Let’s frame this on the latest situation in Afghanistan today and which country is showing what kind of policy inside and out; and finally, let’s rate them in a political context which a form of activity produced by humans currently works/operates, and how much good their performance acting on the stage by filming.

First, United States of America, movie name “We’re Heroes”

Stage Inside:

Reuters news quote:

“WASHINGTON, Aug 17 (Reuters) – The United States will seek to evacuate as many U.S. citizens and Afghan interpreters as possible in coming weeks, Pentagon spokesman John Kirby said on Tuesday, saying Americans could again make their way to the Kabul airport. We’re going to work really hard in the coming weeks to get as many of them out of the country as we can…Three U.S. military bases were prepared to accept up to 22,000 Afghan allies in the coming weeks… More than 700 people, including more than 150 U.S. citizens, were evacuated in the past 24 hours, Kirby said separately on ABC News’ “Good Morning America.”

Stage Outside:

“Afghans, who were put on a cargo plane with the dream of being taken to America, were left in Uganda. According to news, in the statement, it was claimed that the Afghans, who were loaded on the cargo plane from Kabul Airport, took them to Uganda. The statement said: “The first group of Afghan refugees (over 400) who came to Uganda started to settle in the country. Uganda has agreed to accept 2,000 Afghans under a new agreement with the United States. Afghans, who did not know that they were taken to Uganda, were reported to have reacted after they landed.”

Kirby had said 3 of US military bases prepared for Afghans, but according to news at least one of them these bases he mentioned in the Uganda.

Anyway, Over 5 points rating, I give 3 points to US authorities to their film. I take 2 points off US authorities; 1 of 2 points since they did not show much emotional behavior when the statement was made, so acting of one of male leads is not good. 1 of 2 points since they didn’t foresee that the information that Afghans were taken to Uganda instead of going to America would come out in a day, and because their production clumsily.

Secondly, France, movie name “Les Macronuzes”

Stage Inside:

According to rfi news: “Macron to deploy special forces to Kabul to evacuate French nationals, Afghan allies, French President Emmanuel Macron has said that Afghanistan should not return to becoming a “sanctuary of terrorism” and that Paris will not abandon Afghans who worked for France who find themselves under threat from the Taliban.”

Stage Outside:

According to francetvinfo news: (translated with google)

“Adel Abdul Raziq, president of the Association of former auxiliaries of the French army affirms that his”colleagues are abandoned by the French army”.”Since the Taliban returned to Kabul, the auxiliaries of the French army, are worried about this threat. They are all locked in their homes,” he testifies. (About 80 people plus their families) …Last June, the Taliban assured that the interpreters were in no danger and called them “repent” and stay in Afghanistan. What is it?

This is a lie. We lost one of our colleagues, Abdul Basir, after their announcement. He was kidnapped for two weeks and they murdered him. They broke their promise. That is why my friends and colleagues who are in Afghanistan are so worried about their future. Those who remained in Afghanistan regret having worked with the French army.”

Over 5 points rating, I give 3 points to France’s Macron and his team movie. I cut one point Macron’s lack directorship ability, and cut one another point, since the promotion of the film resulted in a fiasco on the same day.

Third, Dutch-Netherlands, movie name “Summer in Afghanistan”

Stage Inside:

Dutch Defense Minister Ank Bijleveld said on Twitter:

Translate in English: “The situation in Afghanistan is now very fragile and uncertain. We are doing everything we can to get interpreters, embassy staff and families to safety. We also deploy military air transport.”

Stage Outside:

Accoding to Cumhuriyet news: “Dutch newspaper NRC wrote that Afghans working at the Dutch Embassy in Kabul were stunned when they arrived at the office on Sunday, August 15, when all the Dutch staff left the building without saying anything. It was stated that the Dutch staff at the embassy left quietly and that 37 Afghan employees found their places vacant when they came to work.”

I give 2 points to Dutch government. I took off 3 points because they didn’t choose the actors well and the stage planning was very bad. Because seemingly stage was already empty.

Fourth, Sweden, the name of movie, “Greetings to Afghanistan”

Stage Inside:

In the press conferance of Swedish Minister of Foreign Affair, Ann Linde “They are currently working to evacuate local employees. These are employees at the embassy and people who worked for the Armed Forces until 2014, as well as their families.”

Also according to her tweet:

Translate in English: “All deployed personnel from Sweden have now been evacuated from Afghanistan. The intensive work continues to be able to evacuate locally employed staff, interpreters and their families. To support the work, the Armed Forces will today send two aircraft.”

Stage outside:
According to news of Cumhuriyet:

“According to the news in the Swedish press, 19 people from the Swedish Embassy in Kabul were taken to the US military base in Doha, the capital of Qatar, by helicopter and plane on Sunday evening, August 15. Swedish personnel left Kabul, while local Afghan personnel working with them were left in the country.

It came to the fore that the Swedish staff even blocked the corporate e-mail accounts of Afghans working with them and did not answer their phones.

A group of local Afghan employees e-mailed the Swedish newspaper Expressen yesterday, explaining that they were dumped by former Swedish colleagues who blocked their email addresses and did not answer their calls.

“We don’t know what’s going on and they left us at the office while we were working. We tried to contact them but they didn’t answer our calls and they blocked our email addresses. Please write about us, our lives are in danger. Sweden should abandon its bureaucratic system and “put our lives first before its laws,” statements were included in the email.”

I give 1 points to Swedish government’s movie. I took off 4 points because while artistic concern draws attention in classical Swedish cinema generally, commercial success is in the background, but here on the contrary here, artistic carelessness draws attention, commercial success is in the foreground.

Fifth, Germany, movie name “Dosenbier und Weinflaschen” – “Cans of beer and bottles of wine”

Stage Inside:

According to dw news:

“Merkel on Afghanistan — ‘Bitter, dramatic and terrifying’ “It is a terrible development for the millions of Afghans who want a more liberal society,” she said.

She paid tribute to the 59 German soldiers who lost their lives in Afghanistan, as well as those who were injured in action.

“I am thinking of the pain of families of soldiers who lost their lives fighting there. Now everything seems so hopeless.”

Stage Outside:

According to Bild news: “

With the headline “Beer and wine removed – local personnel remain”, “There was a carrying capacity for alcohol, but not for local personnel in Afghanistan.” evaluation was made.

In the news, it was reminded that at the beginning of June, when Germany was preparing to leave Afghanistan, it took out 65,000 beer cans and 340 wine bottles belonging to the German army from the country.

Although this is a coincidence in terms of timing, the German government’s priority given to people who worked for Germany for years and risked their lives in Afghanistan, the report said, “For the German government, they are less valuable than beer cans.” expression was used.

I don’t want to impress anyone who reads these lines, but I give this movie of the German government 5 full points! It was built on the love of beer, which is mostly identified with the German people in the world, and processed the brain work of the Germans, who are mechanical geniuses. Especially if we had been able to watch those drinks being loaded onto the planes in a systematic and disciplined Germans way, it would have been a visual feast! Congratulations to Merkel and her team, bravo!

If you want to give a rating or comment about these movies, you’re always welcome my earthling friends!

Once more again rising extreme nationalism and fascism in Europe

I’ve always dreamed of a world and a universe in this way. A world that all people and all living creatures in the universe can live together in peace..

Is this possible? Yes, it is possible. But how long can it be done, it’s entirely in the hands of human beings. I’ve wanted to write this article for a long time ago. I think it has been better in these days especially just after the 100th anniversary of end of World War I; the days which the reasons of the start of the war are repeated, but still the days that the people paper over the realities. Because economic conditions are worsening, and Europeans are more likely to embrace racism, fascism and extreme nationalism. Three days ago, what happened in Poland on anniversary of independence day is the best example.

Slogans against communists, Muslims and Jews in Poland

When the demonstration will be organized by fascist groups for the 100th anniversary of Poland’s independence in 1918 was banned, it was turned into a “government program”. Fascists and racist groups participated in the demonstrations in Warsaw with the participation of President Andrzej Duda. Last year, 60 thousand people attended to Independence Day’s demonstrations, in this year the participation has been about 250 thousand people. At the action, which turned into a show of extreme right and fascists, was shouted against communists, Jews and Muslims.

In the action that the police builded wall against the people who protested against the fascist demonstrators, the fascist groups shouted slogans such as “Islam is the enemy of Europe”, “Delete Islam”, “Our way is nationalism”, “greedy Jewish”, “Communists will be hung in the trees instead of leaves”.

Poland’s right-wing president Andrzej Duda told a crowd at the start of the demonstration in Warsaw yesterday. “We are walking under a white-red flag with a welcome to commemorate those who fought for Poland and the independence and sovereignty of the country,” he said. Former Prime Minister of Poland and President of the European Union (EU) Council Donald Tusk also participated in the action.

The situation for the discreet and rational Poles seems really bad. In particular, there is a large community that has never taken any lessons from history in Poland. For example, didn’t the Polish fascists ever watch this movie?

Hatred, Wołyń/Volhynia is one of the most horrible films I have watched in my life on this planet. Even to watch any good horror movie isn’t that effective like this movie. It is the best example of what fascists done and what fascists can capable of. The massacres of Poles in Volhynia by faschist, which co-operated with Nazis, how the massacre was organized within the churches, even how the children were slaughtered, and how the fascists got pleasure(!) pervertedly, even how the Polish poet Zygmunt Jan Rumel was killed brutally, and many others are described in this film. And in 2018, the fascist groups in Poland argue that the solution is again fascism. This must be a tragicomic joke!

But it is not. What happened at the 100th year demonstration in Poland is not a joke, unfortunately. People can be hostile to their neighbours they have been living together for years, or to those who come with the hope of life from outside to their land. Since the planet earth has been experiencing a new kind of migration of tribes (more last 15 years), it seems that extreme rightism and fascism will continue to increase, especially since the European continent was home to these new kind of migration of tribes. The hope that people will live in peace remains to another century again.

I had thought a long time ago, “what was the most important thing that would make people’s lives together in peace?” In fact, for this, to answer to this question was needed first: “What led human societies to fight and war? The ambition of wealth, greed or interests?” When we write these and similar reasons one by one, economic dynamics emerge. As a result of the community leaders and their relationship with the money-power centers which these leaders are somehow connected, when the economic situation in society worsens, these leaders can somehow drag the society into a war. In fact, the reason of why the economy is not reflected equally in people’s lives is these mismanagement and money-power centers, but despite this, societies can erase the reasons/facts and fight against the different groups in the same society or the people of the other countries.

There are, of course, many reasons of why they erased these facts. At first, there are a sense of belonging and self-identification. How? If a person does not endeavor to develop own level of personal learning (with or without school), when he/she finds him/herself in any economic dilemma, he finds himself among those whom he can act together with depending on the same religion or the same nationality (sometimes it can be the same race). Because he feels that he belongs in these groups. After all, when these groups gather, they don’t ask him what book he’s read yesterday. The only important point is that the same nationality and the same sense of religion are intense and unifying. The unification of the same nationality and the phenomenon of the same religion gives that person the power to relax him/herself.

Because in real, he is powerless and weak

Let’s say he has a job and he’s going to work everyday. The salary at work does not increase, but economic conditions are not good in the country. He sees that people who have not got the same religion with him and are not the same nationality, work with the same or less salary. He wants to create a resistance against them. As a result, he sees the land he lives on as the primary right of the people in his nationality and the same religion. With the time the people from different nationalities and religions become enemies for him. Who knows how many nights he became sleepless by thinking “where these guys came to my country, damn them!”. And again the next day after the sleepless night, how many times he thought, “These guys must get out of my country.”

The same example is more intense in one who is unemployed. Seeing that every door that has closed his face when he seeks a job, seeing every employer who is hiring a person from another nationality or religion with less salary, his sleepless nights are rising. The only trump in their hands in both examples is that they think that the real right of that land is the people of own nationality and religion.

This will feel true at first sight to every person. Because if the entire family of a person has lived in that land for centuries, if they have paid the taxes, if he has endured that distress with all the people on the land in any difficult time, then the genetic coding is activated and it would be created the right to think that he is the first owner of this land. People belonging to another religion and nationality who come to his country from outside reach the usurper condition. So they are chosen as enemies from first-hand.

To see the people of different nations or the people who depending on a different thought or religion as enemy

This is the easiest way. It is easiest to think that the outsiders, or the different elements among the people, they always encroach on the rights. He does not think why these people came to his country, and more importantly, he does not think about his own country’s rulers(probably the majority has always voted for them) have taken actions that would harm to those people, even his country bombarded their country.

If we speak on Poland,(from wiki page)

The Multi-National Force – Iraq (MNF–I), often referred to as the coalition forces, was a military command during the 2003 invasion of Iraq and much of the ensuing Iraq War, led by the United States of America (Operation Iraqi Freedom), United Kingdom (Operation TELIC), Australia, Spain and Poland, responsible for conducting and handling military operations. (2003-2011)

After 2011, at 2014 in this time, Poland has been one of the 77 countries in the coalition led by the US.

And one of the most famous movements of this coalition army is to hit civilians constantly in Syria!

The coalition has publicly admitted to causing 892 civilian deaths since the began anti-ISIL operation in 2014.

Monitoring group Airwars says the number of civilian deaths acknowledged by the coalition is well below the true toll of the bombing campaign, estimating that at least 6,259 non-combatants have lost their lives.

The latest news on November 9, was the same again,

US-Led Coalition Strikes Kill 26 Civilians in Eastern Syria – Reports

In short, because of the groups that extremist right-wing Poles felt belonging, in some countries people are dying, war is going on, people are becoming homeless. And when these people have to flee and become refugee, the far-right Poles and their leaders see them as enemies. It is really interesting!

An far-right-wing Pole who knows that his country is bombing these countries, does not think about it even if he knows this fact. Because that’s the hard part. And choosing that side will drive him away from the nationality and religion that he feels to belong. But he wants to belong. That’s what defines his identity; his religion and nationality. He cannot accept that the people of other countries have come to his own land because of the crimes committed by the rulers he has voted. His acceptance is not possible. Because he falls into emptiness when he accepts. This emptiness destroys his emotion and thought on retrieval.

The thing to be retrieved actually is the sense of justice

So in fact, the answer of first question I asked “What led human societies to fight and war?” is the lack of sense of justice.

People want justice essentially. If there is a life in fair conditions, if they live with equal sharing under equal social rights, then the sense of justice will be in safe. When this feeling is in safe, the people in their own society or other nationality or religion will not bother him. Because they will know that everyone lives on an equal conditions and each individual is taking his/her right; neither more nor less.

If the states and state administrators can provide justice, the people of that country can live in peace. The best sentence on this subject, I think, was told by Caliph Ali in history. He said that about this: “The religion of the state is the justice.” I know it’s interesting that I’ve put the words of a caliph in here as an atheist extraterrestrial, my dear earthling friends. But this sentence is really good, is not it?.;)

After all, if the elected rulers are not fair in the public, if the people cannot benefit from the rights equally, then the main responsible are the rulers. However, nationalism and religion are such a sharp sword in the hands of fascism that you cannot see even the reflection of the sword on the parts that it cut. Because it leaves nothing. It’s the same as it happened before, and it seems that it will happen again.

What are the limits and dimensions of rising fascism in Europe

In the case of France,

national_front_maps_976v2

We see the development of Ms Le Pen and right-wing National Front like that. Le Pen is right-wing, but Macron is really opponent of her? It’s so funny to say that he is not right-wing for someone who says these words.

“President Emmanuel Macron said on Wednesday it was “legitimate” to pay tribute to Marshal Philippe Petain, who led the French army to victory in World War One’s Battle of Verdun but decades later collaborated with Nazi Germany during World War Two.” (6 Nov. 2018)

Is Macron ignorant? Although his words did not have a side to be defended, immediately defended his words by the government. He did not take steps backward either. As it turns out, the fact that he joined the socialist party at the age of 24 did not create any development for him.

The map in the news of BBC in September 10, 2018, under the title “Europe and nationalism: A country-by-country guide” draws the attention.

104116174_eu_far_right_10_09_18_640map-nc

While the rise of nationalism in the countries in the middle and south of the map depends on the fact that more refugees are in these countries, economic conditions are predominant. Well, in the north, why the nationalism is rising by 17% -18% in Sweden and Finland? The economic conditions of those living in these countries are much better than in the southern European countries. I wonder, could it be some of the Swedish or Finns decided to try nationalism as a new taste because of they were so bored, haha! Kidding aside, I don’t think so.

About a year ago I came across a video on youtube.

It was an interview with actor Gustaf Skarsgård, the actor of Floki’s role in Vikings TV series. (Okay, okay I confess, I did not find this video by chance. I’m watching Vikings TV series, and I was wondering what would happen in the new season. We, the extraterrestrials like to get spoilers, haha!) At the beginning of video, the interviewer asks questions about Vikings. As understood from the interview, the interviewer is Norwegian origin person and I guess he lives in America. The part that attracts my attention starts at 2:48 seconds of the video. During the conversation, the interviewer says that a Norwegian singer said “Norwegians are prude and stupit”. And he asks to Gustaf Skarsgård:“You are standing up for Norwegians here?” And Skarsgard answer is very natural. Like that:

“No, I am just standing up for, for, for, for humans in general. I don’t care that much about nationality.”

Yes, he says “for” four times. I think he thinks in the same time and even Skarsgard sounds like stuttering. It’s like there’s nothing he can do. His brain cells were probably shocked by the question. He is a very good player, and as well as being a good player, he obviously has improved himself. He is capable of a being universal actor. (Not yet, because Galactic Council Universal Art Administration, Human-made Visual and Performing Arts Department, did not take Vikings usage right yet; when they take, he can be universal.;))

If you are a person like Gustaf Skarsgard, that is, language, religion, color and race are not important for you, you can confuse in front of such a question with a momentary pause. But the interviewer goes on and says:

“Scandinavians, we have to stick together too you know.”

Apparently the interviewer is insistent. Somehow he wants to establish a bond by referring to more general population, he points to all Scandinavians. I don’t know why he’s doing this. Have the Scandinavians ever been exposed to racism in anywhere on the planet? Are they an oppressed race? For them, “Scandinavians and dogs cannot enter” on the doors of restaurants was written? Did the other people search for Scandinavians door by door for burning or killing/hanging them in history? Was any banner hold such as “get the hell out of my country” by pointed to Scandinavians in any country? Is there something the world doesn’t know about, but only the Scandinavians have quietly endured and this interviewer knew? Why this interviewer was wanting to create a Scandinavian union like the power of Voltron? I’m confused. Gustaf Skarsgard seems to be confused too; this should be caught unawares. At first, Skarsgard says yeah, but he come to himself with a smile: “Yeah,… Europeans… and the members of the planet and all.”

Most likely, after Skarsgard’s first “yeah” response, during the milliseconds it has been transferring in his brain like that: “What I am saying! Why only Scandinavians? No, all Europeans. No no, why only the Europeans! All members of the planet, yes, we must all stand together.”; like every rightminded and humanist human being. This was reflected in his words. (PS: Even though WD has understood his words as unite against extraterrestrials, I do not agree with him.:))

After all, this very short moment and detail in this video had led me to think a year ago. I’ve always thought that northern Europeans are less nationalistic and more inclusive societies. Of course, I had information about the period when some Norwegian collaborated with the Nazis. Like some informations as described in this article: The Dark Sides of Norwegian History

I even don’t mention about what happened to Lebensborn children especially in Norway.

Or again, when we look at history, we know that a group in Sweden has united with the Nazis. Or what happened to the Indigenous people of Northern Europe, Saami / Sami people (In Turkish and Russian, they called as Lapon people and their land is Lapponia) who are lesser known among the indigenous communities in the world? If you look at what is told in this film, no good things have happened to Sami people in Sweden.

I knew these facts, but I still was thinking that Scandinavians could always be less nationalistic and even less racist in Europe. I think mine was a stereotyped idea about Scandinavians.

While the economic conditions in the Scandinavian countries are better than many European countries, where this mentality comes from? And according to bbc’s article, nationalist parties are almost effective in one-fifth of the population of these countries. I found an interview-article about it. The title and link is in here: “Why is the far-right on the rise in Scandinavia?

When you read it, even though it was two years ago, you can observe some things. There are some comments under this article. And I think the most remarkable comment is following:
“Because the left has abandoned their own people and jeopardized the safety of citizens with reckless illegal immigration policies. The left deserves its fate and I truly hope their only way is OUT.”

In other words, when left-leaning people lose their sense of security in their own country, they question the decisions of a leftist administration. For example, the article says “Sweden by alone received more than 160,000 asylum seekers in 2015, more than any other EU state” This looks good from the outside. So, it means that among countries that bombed Syria, at least Sweden accepts own responsibility. But if the arriving refugees create a security threat, it is still up to the laws that the government will implement. However, in order to put pressure on government decisions, I do not understand the logic of moving from left-wing to right-wing. Does it mean they tried all the ways and decided to be the rightist when they could not find any solution? I do not think so. It’s the easy part, and it’s nothing but to take the easy way out.

When talking about rising fascism, it is not possible not to pass over Ukraine. After all, this beautiful country is now almost becoming synonymous with fascism. In Ukraine, fascism is even bigger. Even children are now trained in Ukrainian nationalist camps. Details and videos of AP news dated 12.11.2018: Training kids to kill at Ukrainian nationalist camp

KIEV, Ukraine (AP) — The campers, some clad in combat fatigues, carefully aim their assault rifles. Their instructor offers advice: Don’t think of your target as a human being.

So when these boys and girls shoot, they will shoot to kill.

Most are in their teens, but some are as young as 8 years old. They are at a summer camp created by one of Ukraine’s radical nationalist groups, hidden in a forest in the west of the country, that was visited by The Associated Press. The camp has two purposes: to train children to defend their country from Russians and their sympathizers — and to spread nationalist ideology.

“We never aim guns at people,” instructor Yuri “Chornota” Cherkashin tells them. “But we don’t count separatists, little green men, occupiers from Moscow, as people. So we can and should aim at them.”

I think we will write more and more articles about this and we will read the news. Of course, there is no cure for extreme nationalism, you can’t cure people by giving a medicine. But with justice, education and equal conditions, you can save people from extreme nationalism and fascism. Of course, in order to do this, the public needs to act in an organized manner.

In my case, the situation is worse. We already had a limited number of countries that we can visit on the planet. For example, we, the extraterrestrials can never go to US, because since Roswell, we are all considered as the experimental object at there. We can’t go to Japan either; even if Japanese people look polite and rational, they have interesting thought structures, and we have our suspicion and fear that they will make us test subject. As a communist and atheist alien, we cannot go to Ukraine, for example. Ukrainian man says clearly that you have read above, “we can and should aim .. little green men …” The fascists in Poland want to use communists instead of leaves in the trees; you have read also this upper lines. There are many other countries in the list, but these are the first. For us, the first ages of humanity were unique times to visit the planet earth. The human race was not so intensely spread into the continents. The ones, Homo Sapiens who started to be exist, were engaged in the slaughter to the Neanderthals and wiping them off the planet. Already in the rest of their times they were living in the caves by painting and they were trying to make human babies. So it was the best time for us. But not now. And unfortunately, much worse future is waiting for both us and common sense people.

 

Mamma Mia!

In February 2013, Sweden commander-in-chief of the armed forces, Sverker Göranson, had said that Sweden’s scaled backed military leaves the country vulnerable. As he claimed Sweden could only defend itself for one week if it came under attack. Also, if a war would be between Sweden and Russia, Sweden needs to be in NATO, according to him.

After this statement,

In March 1, 2013, the controversial admission of Sweden’s dwindling military capacity has been seized upon by Russian national television in a sketch on the satirical programme Yesterday Live. Featuring the melody of Abba’s hit song Mamma Mia, the parody shows a man who appears to be masquerading as Göranson as he makes an impassioned plea about the imminent threat from the east.

Whenever I see this show, I am laughing. As the singer pointed at the end of the clip, this is humor. Already the Swedish people who made the comment below this video on youtube, they seem that they showed understanding. Especially in these days which the west lived fear of a war with Russians I thought that this clip would be very appropriate. I don’t know how many of you have watched this clip. If you didn’t watch yet, I hope you would like it, my Earthling friends. And the most impressive expression of this song has been the last words for me. When you watch you will see what I meant.

Also, who says that Russians don’t know good humor 🙂
