I'm Still Here...

...just not very motivated.  I am ever so slowly learning how to navigate with Windows 7 on my new 'puter, but I'm still pissed off with Bill Gates.

Never the less, here's a couple of interesting things that reflect recent news:

Iran pulls down anti-US posters in capital
"The Tehran municipality has removed anti-American posters from the streets of the capital which questioned US honesty in nuclear talks with Iran, media reported on Sunday."
""In an arbitrary act and without the knowledge and confirmation of the municipality, one of the advertising agencies had put up these posters," spokesman Hadi Ayyazi was quoted as saying by the official IRNA news agency.

AFP photographers said that some posters could still be seen across Tehran.

One of them, bearing the words "American honesty," shows US and Iranian negotiators sitting at a table and facing each other, the American wearing a jacket and tie but with army pants and boots underneath."
"Rouhani, a moderate cleric who has pledged to improve ties with the West, held a historic 15-minute telephone conversation with US President Barack Obama last month, the first direct contact between leaders of the two countries in more than three decades.

The call came as Rouhani was winding up a visit to New York where he attended the UN General Assembly.

Supreme leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei has backed Rouhani's overtures but criticised some aspects of the UN visit as "inappropriate."

Iranians are also split over whether it is still appropriate to chant "Death to America" -- one of the main slogans of the 1979 revolution -- at official ceremonies.

November 4 is the anniversary of the seizure of the US embassy in Tehran, during which Islamist students captured and held 52 US diplomats hostage for 444 days."
You know what I think? I think this is a campaign of disinformation. Normally, I don't think the Americans would fall for it, but with The One in office, who knows?

Then there's this little ditty, which I presume is tongue in cheek:

Plus ca change.

Hilarious. Arabs with a sense of humour. Who would have thunk! There will probably be a fatwa put out on those responsible for this.
