South Korea – Should verify the sources linking Nkorean to the attack before any action

0 0
Read Time:5 Minute, 16 Second

(CodewitNews)The International Commmunity should be careful in getting involve in this case. we can see from the end of the  tunnel a light of war being masterminded again by the United States of America. The international community  should ask basic questions? for example How credible are the sources accusing North korea of being responsible of the attack. I mean; how are we sure the sources revealing that North korea is responsible is credible. You can see  political malpractice at play.  All of a sudden, we are hearing  Mrs. Cliton’s strong rhetorics against Nkorea and United States has already condemned  North Korea without verifying if the sources of the report are  credible. As usual , they have started calling the international community to do the same. Not this time.

To refresh your memory, Is it not the same United States  that lied to us that their intelligence revealed that there were weapons of mass destruction in Iraq and convinced the International community to support them to go for war against Iraq. The world should bite the words coming from United States before chewing.  of course now we know from all credible sources that the pictures and images showed to the world on that reporting was a hoax and a sham. It was a deceptive and dubious investigation intended to  pursue American war agenda and invasion of  Iraq for her oil. It is sad that we have a lot of political journalists that are happy to see wars and disunity among nations and drive joy in causing political tensions among nations.

Please the international community should be careful this time. war is dangerous and must be the last resort if neccesary. Remember that the United States has not come out of the war in Iraq, Afghanistan, Pakistan and now they are indirectly gingering South korea for another war. The world should be careful!!!

South Korea should look for another alternatives than to go for war. Most importantly, they should re-evaluate and verify  again and again and find out if the sources linking North Korea to the attack is credible and verifiable. . Only when that is established without bias. They should  then find other ways to settle their misunderstanding.

It is a normal saying that  negotiation and dialogue is better than  confrontation. There is power in direct and indirect negotiation and dialogue as Mr. Barack Obama said during his presidential campaign.  We all know that United states of America is a warmonger. The world should avoid war.  War and Violence does not bring peace but death of civilians and destruction of infrastructure. We call on Interbational Community to institute a new indpendent team to investigate the accusation. Let us avoid war as far as  we can because it is destructive..

Clinton: World must act on SKorean ship sinking

South Korea – U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton said Wednesday the world must respond to the sinking of a South Korean warship that has been blamed on North Korea.

“This was an unacceptable provocation by North Korea and the international community has a responsibility and a duty to respond,” Clinton told reporters after talks with South Korean leaders.

The ship sinking “requires a strong but measured response,” she said at a joint news conference with South Korean Foreign Minister Yu Myung-hwan, though did not elaborate.

Clinton said the United States would be consulting with South Korea and members of the U.N. Security Council on what the appropriate action would be, but she declined to offer a timeline.

“We’re very confident in the South Korean leadership, and their decision about how and when to move forward is one that we respect and will support,” she said.

Tensions on the Korean peninsula have risen sharply since a team of international investigators last week concluded that a torpedo from a North Korean submarine tore apart the corvette Cheonan on March 26, killing 46 South Korean sailors. It was one of the South’s worst military disasters since the 1950-53 Korean War.

Clinton spent just a few hours in Seoul discussing possible international responses with South Korean leaders. North Korea denies it was responsible for the incident and has threatened to retaliate if action is taken against it.

Clinton touched down in the South Korean capital Wednesday after intense discussions on the deteriorating situation with Chinese officials in Beijing.

“I believe that the Chinese understand the seriousness of this issue and are willing to listen to the concerns expressed by both South Korea and the United States,” she said Wednesday. “We expect to be working with China as we move forward in fashioning a response.”

China said it was still weighing the evidence over the sinking.

Beijing regards the sinking as “extremely complicated” and has no firsthand information about the cause, Vice Foreign Minister Zhang Zhijun told reporters in the Chinese capital.

“China is carefully and prudently studying and examining the information from all sides,” he said.

South Korea’s Yu, asked about the possibility of China or Russia blocking action by the U.N. Security Council, said they “will take time, I’m sure, but they will not be able to deny the facts.”

Clinton called the investigation into the sinking “very thorough, highly professional” and “very convincing.” She said both the United States and South Korea had offered China “additional information and briefings about the underlying facts of that event.”

“We hope that China will take us up on our offer to really understand the details of what happened and the objectivity of the investigation that led to the conclusions,” she said.

As Clinton visited Seoul, the two Koreas traded new threats amid rapidly deteriorating relations.

The North’s military said it would block cross-border traffic heading to a joint industrial zone in North Korea if the South does not stop psychological warfare operations. It also vowed to blow up any loudspeakers South Korea sets up to broadcast propaganda northward.

South Korea, meanwhile, accused Pyongyang of taking “menacing” measures and vowed to “deal with these North Korean threats unwaveringly and sternly,” Unification Ministry spokesman Chun Hae-sung said.

10 Things Men Wish Women Knew About Them

0 0
Read Time:6 Minute, 18 Second

Here’s the standard line on men: We’re simple, straightforward, limited—and usually perfectly happy to leave it there. Why? Because it keeps your expectations of us low. But here’s the single biggest thing women don’t get about men: Masculinity is a complicated performance we agree to in order to be seen as men. Unfortunately, that performance is more designed to conceal than reveal us. For instance, it’s easier and more “masculine” for us to talk about the great sex we had rather than describe the great conversation afterward. So, a woman ends up knowing the male script, but not the man. Breaking character, then, I give you (in random order) 10 things he wishes you knew about him.

1. Even Men Like Compliments Every Once in a While
Real guys, or so the story goes, don’t need praise. Especially not about girlish things, like if those jeans show off our assets. But the truth is, men enjoy a little well-intentioned objectification. A squeeze of the biceps and a lingering stare when we reach for the top shelf—these remind us of what attracted you to us and appeal to our Darwinian sense of selectivity (i.e., what keeps you choosing us over the other monkeys). It also makes it OK, even desirable, to send a little objectification your way, too. And just to be clear, the praise doesn’t need to be physical. In fact, it’s important that women commend those things masculinity tends to belittle, like if we’re good cooks or get passionate about foreign films. Tell us, too, when we’ve been a good father, a caring son or a helpful husband. Watch how much faster the toilet gets cleaned.

2. We Are Brutally Honest Because We Care
We know that, at times, tact can be the only four-letter word that doesn’t describe us, but women need to rethink their reactions to male candor. Men lie and obfuscate with people they have no interest in. The art of BS—and indulging others with their BS—is how we get through the day. But with you, lucky you, we want to forget all that. We want to tell you why your mother bothers us and how you can solve the problem with your high-maintenance friend. In a relationship, honesty is a young man’s mistake because the longer a man feels punished for it, the more he begins to censor himself. And that’s when you really need to worry.

3. You Should Appreciate Our Reliability
Similar to honesty, a good man demonstrates his commitment to you by showing up. So it’s more than a little irritating to hear about your fascination with the jerk who has mastered the art of illusion: He’s there, but not really. It’s a vicious cycle—the more men feel those guys get the benefits of your time and attention, the more incentive we have to become those guys. And that’s bad for both of you since more of those guys turn your illusion into our delusion.

4. Love Means Never Having to Be Attached at the Hip
We acknowledge the importance of couple time. We’d even go so far as to say that, in the best relationships, love that is asserted each day deepens and extends. Lost in this, however, is the belief that time spent enriching oneself also enriches partnerships. In other words, going on a hiking weekend with the boys does not diminish the bond we share. Like women need the affirmation of their girl friends, guys need the companionship of other men. This kind of solo time will refresh us and we’ll come back with more for you.


5. We Respect You as Females—and Love What Makes You Women
It is sad to say that equality in our times means adopting the worst of both sexes: Men get more sexualized and women can be cruder. And while no fair-minded guy wants women to return to the 1950s sitcom (although coming home to a roast chicken and a stiff drink ain’t bad as a fantasy), neither do we want the elimination of the feminine as a virtue. Don’t be ashamed to hold on to those things that make you different from us, like how you care about smelling nice or reminding us of empathy. That isn’t regressive; it’s just beautiful. To see the exception, read #6.


6. Be the Boss in the Bedroom
Two words: Unleash yourself. Express your fantasies. Use your hands along with your…imagination. Show us who’s boss and give us good directions—you already know we don’t do well asking for them. Your explanations will heighten our intuition and your pleasure.


7. Our First Commitment Is to Ourselves
One of the biggest complaints by women (for the second, read #8) is that men don’t commit. Right or wrong, men are raised to believe that a successful life hinges on self-fulfillment. Relationships, at first glance, seem to impinge on that. They make men nervous that the pursuit of happiness will become the path of missed opportunity. But men do come around to understand that true self-fulfillment depends on fulfilling another. What can you do in the meantime? Take a page from our script on this one and focus on your self-fulfillment, your own passions. This kind of healthy withdrawal will make pursuing you part of our happiness.

8. For Us, Seeing Is Believing
Want to know why men like sports? Pure, measurable success. At the end of the game, no one can dispute the number of touchdown passes or homeruns. An athlete works toward a goal and is rewarded with concrete proof of his effort. What is the irrefutable proof of a successful emotional life? Here, the data is less tangible. Men fear endeavors where success is vague because failure seems a likely result. In case you hadn’t noticed, we hate to fail. One way to take the failure out is to become his ally in those pursuits that bring him emotionally alive; his attempt at wholeness there will illuminate the great rewards of an emotional life elsewhere.


9. We May Lose Small Battles, but Always Remember the Wars We’ve Won
How important is putting the toilet seat down if the yard is mowed each week? Does it matter that an item was forgotten at the store when he checked off the rest? If he let the kid go to his friend’s with a stained shirt but made sure to spend time on his science project, is there a point to mentioning it? Women should remember to give credit where credit is due.

10. Fathers Are Just as Important as Mothers
It can seem, at times, that the world elevates the feminine over the masculine and that the lessons men can impart are outmoded or regarded as Neanderthal. But when a bully is picking on your son, your husband showing him how to throw a punch is not nonsensical. Or if your daughter has an athletic talent, his testosterone-fueled guidance may teach her more than just competitiveness. Honoring what men know based on their experiences is just as valuable to the young as the insights of women. Freely sharing his wisdom prevents imbalance, both in us and those we seek to help.

The Love for Sun in Finland

Read Time:7 Minute, 29 Second
Listening to the sound of marching feet as I sat in a bench at the Esplanade Park and the sun was up in the sky and everything under it were basking in it. I noticed smiles on faces of all I saw, the giggling of a little baby in a pram beside the bench the baby’s dad sat on, the hoarse laughter of companies’ chief executives in their suits as they were enjoying the sun with ice-cream.

United Nation to query Nigeria government for child rights violations

0 0
Read Time:1 Minute, 37 Second

On May 26, 2010, in Geneva, Switzerland, the United Nations Committee on the Rights of the Child (CRC) will question representatives of the Nigerian government on Nigeria’s 3rd and 4th periodic report into children’s rights in Nigeria.

This report described the state of children’s rights in Nigeria and provided information on the ways in which the government has been attempting to address problems and areas of weakness.

A list of pre-sessional questions drawn up by the CRC identified a number of priority areas regarding the protection of children’s rights in Nigeria.

These include child labour, education, HIV/AIDS and harmful traditional practices such as Female Genital Mutilation, as well as the broader detrimental effects that poverty and corruption have on children’s rights.

The negative impact that child witchcraft accusations have on children’s rights in Nigeria was also identified as a key challenge by the CRC.

Although the Nigerian state report did not identify human rights abuses resulting from child witchcraft stigmatisation to be a problem, this issue was brought to the attention of the CRC by the child rights organisation Stepping Stones Nigeria (SSN).

The various ways in which child witchcraft stigmatisation has a negative effect on children’s human rights in Nigeria were detailed by SSN in their Shadow Report to the CRC in 2009.

It is expected that the CRC will now require the Nigerian government to explain the various measures that it will take to eliminate violations of children’s rights, including witchcraft-related abuse.

Through its Concluding Observations on Nigeria, which will be issued in mid-June, the CRC will identify both the main challenges regarding the protection of children’s rights in Nigeria, and what the Nigerian government is expected to do in order to address these problems.

Child rights campaigners have welcomed the focus on child witchcraft in Nigeria by the CRC.
