On another subject, the other day, I was reading 'The Art of War' by Sun Tzu II. Waging War on my iPhone. Yeah, I have the book but, it's kind of cool to read it on your iPhone!
You can get it via iTunes App store. Just type "Sun Tzu" on the iTunes search. You can also definitely get it right from your iPhone too. There's also a whole lot of nice e books you can buy and download to your iphone. Check it out!
Anyway, I came to point no. 6 >
There is no instance of a country having benefited from prolonged warfare.
As you can obviously see, the U.S. army need to pull back as soon as possible from Iraq and Afghanistan. There's no use in staying too long and prolonged the war. Billions of U.S. dollars had already been wasted on this useless war that seems to have no ends (Click here to read in .pdf format of the cost of war on terror - The Cost of Iraq, Afghanistan, and Other Global War on Terror Operations Since 9/11).
They should have tried to avoid going to war in the first place and instead use the various Intelligence agency to get their man - in this case Osama.
How long have the war been going on? I remember when I first heard and watch CNN, BBC on my cable tv. I didn't see the first plane going into the World trade center of course but I did watch the second plane 'live' going straight for the second towers and also watch how both of the towers finally crumbled with smokes and debris everywhere. It was like watching the movies. I didn't really believe what I saw. I thought it was some kind of mistake. Some kind of crude joke. But, it did happen.
What happen next is of course the current and still the U.S. president George W. Bush decided to go to war in spite of what others think. Yeah, the crude speech, "either you're with me or againts me" I guess every one is againts him now eh?
And still, Osama is at large!
Well anyway, here's another excerpt from Sun Tzu no. 7 >> It is only one who is thoroughly acquainted with the evils of war that can thoroughly understand the profitable way of carrying it on.
I wonder if George Bush actually knows what de heck he's doing!

That's it for now. Good night and sleep well. Oh yeah, happy fasting!
Note: I know in some other countries others are suffering terribly in this month of Ramadan. But, there's always a reason right? Look up my man ..look up and pray for mercy!
It ain't nothin' compared to Hell!
