Gosh where to go with this entry…for some reason there isn’t a lot reeling in my brain but I will give it a go.
So my audio is now working. Decided to go with media player because it seemed to work on everyone’s site. Man-o-man was that easy and fast to do. Once everyone finds out how to do it, it will be hard to find sites with out. You know how hard it is too pick a song for a site? Well it was for me. My next song should be up soon and you can vote on the choices by clicking on my Music list. They won’t be on a schedule so they may or may not stay.
Tomorrow morning I leave for Roseburg, Oregon for my mom’s b-day! They whole family will be there with some old time friends. My family gets a little crazy sometimes but we are "The Fun Family". My brother left last night and got in around 2am. I guess Aiden slept the whole way and didnt mind the road trip! Bryan forgot his camera so I just hope I remember mine and don’t leave it. Ok, onto a new topic.
Israel has pulled out of Gaza. Now the Palestinian militants groups like Hamas are claiming it’s a victory and the pull is due to their armed resistance and had nothing to do with diplomatic negotiations. Hamas also said it won’t stop its armed resistance until all the land is clear this includes the West Bank. How could this be possible, the Israeli military has dominated the region since the 60’s when they started the occupation.
It is just amazing that radicals think that violence is the way to solve your differences. I believe we are a product of our parents and environment. So when I was learning how to share and play nice they were learning radical ideas that the west is bad and needs to be "punished" and this "punishment" should come in the form of mass killing of the innocent. Wow what a concept. I wish I learned that instead, YEA RIGHT! Enough ranting lets get serious.
This pull out will have a significant influence within the region. With Israel being hated by most of the Islamic community to it show a huge sign of peace or willing to sacrifice for the great good. These militant groups don’t see it as a act of good faith but rather a reason to continue fighting. The result of continuing to fight is that the never ends. It will keep going for generations. Well this good faith will make Israel the "good guy" in the global political environment especially with UN Security Council.
As I have said in previous entries, the tactics these militant groups use to influence there target audience is not working and will continue to make their cause look very badly. The natural international pressures will make happen. Just like in business, if you are providing a poor product or service your target market goes somewhere else. There recruitment will crumble and the whole world will look down upon them because they are seeing that the global community disapproves.
So there is hope on the horizon to have a global peace, well no war at least. Being the example is a good move for Israel. It is a decesion that has some immediate side effects on Israeli people but the long term benefits for their country is huge.
Other countries have taken similiar steps to change from the old ways to the modern ways like Lebanon and Syria. The global environment is not just changing in the political relm but also in the business sector.
China is now making so business moves to improve its business posistion in the global business environment. Taking over bid of Unocal did have some problems with it. Yes, i know they were offering the Unocal shareholders alot more money the Chevron. Chevron did their research before embarking on a bid. They went step by step to make sure that they had all the documents and followed the exact US proceedure and China did not. The shareholders expect another company to have their business in order before approaching such a deal.
If you have a crappy business plan are investors going to give money? If you have a crappy proposal wiil your boss implement your idea?
Probaly not, you just can’t purchase a public company because you have the money. It needs to be a strategicly motivated for the investors. If you have money but don;t know how to manage it, it will all soon be gone because you are frivolous.
There are countless examples of bad and even good decesions, god knows, some of mine haven’t been the best. Until we chat again this is Toby signing off…
