O chestie interesanta pentru laichisti - de Dinu Lazar la: 19/11/2004 21:30:06
(la: O conversatie cu DINU LAZAR, fotograf)
Dear Leica friends,

Today we would like to inform you about:

__Internet chat on November 23rd, 2004 informs on the
recent developments LEICA DIGITAL-MODUL-R

The LEICA DIGITAL-MODUL-R, which was presented at the photokina 2004, is being anxiously awaited by a great number of customers. We are pleased over the positive resonance that we have received and are working diligently with our partners in order to get serial production underway.
The photographic results have exceeded our expectations.
We are sure that with the DIGITAL-MODUL-R we have achieved a high quality and long lasting solution for our customers.

On November 23rd, 2004 we will hold an internet chat in which we will inform you on the recent developments and the beginning of the first deliveries. Starting at 5 pm local time, a competent Leica team will answer your questions on the LEICA DIGITAL-R. We would be pleased to welcome you at the Leica internet chat.

To participate in the Leica chat all users have to be registered. Further information on the registration to the Leica chat are available http://www.leica-camera.com/markt/forum/chat/index_e.html

Leica sau pashtele cailor - de Dinu Lazar la: 22/11/2004 21:45:56
(la: O conversatie cu DINU LAZAR, fotograf)
We would like to remind you again on the internet chat on November 23rd, 2004 in which we will inform you on the recent developments and the beginning of the first deliveries of the LEICA DIGITAL-MODUL-R. Starting at 5 pm local time, a competent Leica team will answer your questions on the LEICA DIGITAL-MODUL-R.

At product introduction we announced that a serial production was planned for December 2004. We regretfully must inform you that we will not be able to adhere to this plan. We now assume that the first deliveries will be in April 2005

The reason for this delay is that some software components that are needed for the universal insertion of the digital solution could not be realized up to our standards until now. A need for additional programming has surfaced.
We want to be absolutely sure that the LEICA DIGITAL- MODUL-R is fully functional before delivery starts. Based on the fact that it is rightly expected of us to fulfill the expectations and to produce a near perfect product, then this can be seen as the only right decision.

immortal - de giocondel la: 26/11/2004 09:02:30
(la: SUFLETUL ESTE NEMURITOR)
Cred ca pana acum,aceasta conferinta mi s-a parut a fi cea mai amuzanta.:):):)
1.In aceasta epoca a existentei umanitatii, Stiinta si Religia trebuie sa mearga mana in mana( si se vor apropia din ce in ce mai mult) pentru ca:

2.Intotdeauna va exista un punct in care stiinta se va bloca, facand loc nespusului si inexplicabilului, a ceea transcende Limitarile umane.Pana si Einstein, unul din cei mai luminati oameni de stiinta de pana acum, credea in existenta Divinitatii,desi nu intr-un D-zeu personal

ca sa nu mai vorbim de Socrate care a trait cu atat de mult timp in urma si inca pare sa se fi aflat cu mult peste nivelul de constiinta al majoritatii oamenilor.

3.Religia fara stiinta este pura superstite si dogma

4.Treaba e relativ simpla...sa luam un exemplu: copilul in pantecele mamei...la inceput e un mic mormoloc..se dezvolta si incet incet incep sa ii apara diferite organe,membre,etc..Acuma, copilul care sta bine la caldurica in burtica si este hranit prin mama ce zice: "ma sa fiu al naibii! ce oare or mai fi si chestiile astea??ochi, deshte' , urechiuse, tot felulde gauri prin tot felul de locuri..HM! mie nu imi trebuie asa ceva!!in Universul meu,singurul pe care il simt si prin urmare singurul existent, nu e nevoie de asa ceva..."

Mai tarziu afla el ca de fapt in acel Unic univers pe care il cunostea la momentul respectiv, era pregatit pentru tranzitia spre celalt Univers, din afara pantecului mamei...dupa nastere isi va folosi mainile sa munceasca, sa scrie, sa iubeasca, ochii sa se bucure de toate frumusetile acestei lumi etc etc...faptul ca bebelusul,in burta mamei, nu este constient de existenta a altceva decat cordonul ombilical, nu dovedeste Inexistenta a TOT ceea ce se afla in afara micului sau Univers. La fel si noi, in acest plan Fizic, suntem incapabili de a constientiza existenta unor alte planuri, diferite in esenta lor de ceea ce putem noi percepe cu ajutorul celor 5 simturi.Si ceea ce exista Dincolo de capacitatea noastra de intelegere( aici e marea frumusete a creatiei) nu se afla undeva departe, la mii si mii de ani lumina ci Este aici si acum.Tot ce ne desparte se reduce la un val(ignoranta) la fel de subtire ca si peretele burtii mamei.
In lumea aceasta nu facem decat sa obtinem ochi si urechi spirituale, nu este decat o alta etapa in evolutia noastra.Sufletul este nemuritor, etern in trecut si etern in viitor, nesupus alterarii timpului si in continua transformare si evolutie.

5 miscarea nu poate exista fara existenta unei forte la fel cum nu exista efect fara de cauza

6.visele premonitorii, intuitia, deja-vu urile,....oricat s-ar incerca sa fie conectate de activitatea creierului, stim cu totii ca trec dincolo

7.daca intr-adevar nu ar fi nici un Creator si sufletul nu ar exista sau ar inceta sa existe odata cu degradarea corpului fizic, atunci intreaga istorie a umanitatii nu ar fi decat un circ,iar marile minti si spirite ale diferitelor epoci, niste clovni!ca s anu mai vorbim de toti profetii: moise, krishna, Buddha, Zoroastru, Cristos, toti "sfintii" si oamenii spirituali( nu neaparat in sensul de apartenenta la o religie anume)...

8.Daca tu Crezi si Dumnezeu nu exista, nu ai pierdut nimic,insa daca El exista si tu nu crezi...uel..asta depinde de generozitatea lui:):)

9.Mult noroc tuturor si noapte buna..

"O MAN OF TWO VISIONS!
Close one eye and open the other. Close one to the world and all that is therein, and open the other to the hallowed beauty of the Beloved."

"To merit the madness of love, man must abound in sanity; to merit the bonds of the Friend, he must be full of spirit"-the seven valleys

(la: SUFLETUL ESTE NEMURITOR)
" Religia ne spune ca la baza bolilor sta pacatul si, teoretic, prin rugaciune s-ar rezolva.'

Ueit,exista o religie care , dimpotriva, incurajaeaza credinciosul sa nu cada in capcana ignorantei si tradititiei, si in caz de boala sa combine cele doua resurse de vindecare (fizica, prin consultarea unor medici competenti si spirituala ,prin rugaciune, meditatie etc).


"When members of Bahá'u'lláh's own
family were sick, a professional physician was called in, and
this practice is recommended to His followers. He says:

"Should ye be attacked by illness or disease, consult skillful
physicians." -- Kitáb-i-Aqdas.

This is quite in accordance with the Bahá'í attitude towards
science and art generally. All sciences and arts which are for
the benefit of mankind, even in a material way, are to be esteemed
and promoted. Through science man becomes the master
of material things; through ignorance he remains their slave.

(Dr. J.E. Esslemont, Baha'u'llah and the New Era, p. 106)


Tot in scrierile baha'i ni se spune ca in viitor oamenii nu vor mai manca de loc carne ci mai degraba se vor hrani cu fructele pamantului si ca medicina va ajunge la un punct in care va trata multe boli cu ajutorul dietei, cu apa calda si rece ,pentru ca multe din aceste boli sunt create dintr-o lipsa de balanta intre anumite componente din organism.

subiectul est foarte vast, voi reveni pe parcurs.
sanatate si numai bine

uMpic de concluzie si mai mult de peisaje ... - de Dinu Lazar la: 30/11/2004 21:25:14
(la: O conversatie cu DINU LAZAR, fotograf)
Acu` iata care e problema; preturile nu trebuie sa fie socotite pe bucata de obiect, ci la timpul consumat. Ar fi deci, in cazul comenzii de fotografie comerciala, pretul la ora si la zi; asa, din cite aud pe aici prin Capitala, in sectorul editorial se platesc: cam 50$ - 150$ pe zi la revistele de femei, cam 300$ - 500$ revistele straine care au nevoie de reportaje, si minim 400$-600$ pe zi la lucrarile comerciale; la asta se adauga desigur TVA si toate cheltuielile.
Sunt si lucrari comerciale platite bine si fotografi romani care pot negocia si 2000$ pe zi, pina in 4000$ pe zi - cam 4-5 oameni maxim; cea mai bine platita sedinta foto din Ro de care stiu eu a fost de cam 18.000 euro/zi, unui fotograf strain, normal, pentru o pza de tot rahatu` la o agentie mare de publicitate.
Astea nu sunt venituri care se cistiga in fiecare zi; cine are citeva comenzi pe luna e mare boier, concurenta e mare, si fotograful roman atita are cap sa faca, in loc sa sporeasca prestigiul meseriei si bransei, coboara pretu, ca atita minte are. Asta e...
Socotit la singe, costurile exercitarii meseriei sunt mai mari la noi decit oriunde ( ma rog, cine vrea sa fie legal in toate cele) si veniturile cam de 10 ori mai mici ca oriunde. Ma si mir ca exista fotografi pe aici in aceste conditii. Dar vazind slaba sau execrabila calitate foto a imaginii profesionale, a calendarelor, prospectelor, afiselor, posterelor, imi dau seama ca fotograful roman e mai shmeker decit pare, si respecta intru totul zicala: ei se fac ca ne platesc, noi ne facem ca muncim.

Italienii au transat mult mai bine problema; dati o cautare cu Tau visual.
Iata citeva chestii care mi se par deshtepte dar care la noi nu se pot aplica, datorita calitatii morale a majoritatii fotografilor romani.

UNDERSTANDING HOW IT WORKS

The first distinction to make is between :
A) an image which has to be created expressly for the job in hand (committed works)
or:
B) the acquisition for the rights of use to an already existent image.

A) If an image has to be created from scratch then its final price will
include labour, production costs plus the acquisition of rights to publish
or use the image.

B) If the image already exists a recompense will be paid to the photographer or agency to acquire the rights of the chosen image.

THE PROFESSIONAL LEVEL

It is not possible to produce a uniform price guide which is valid for all
photographers given that there are many different professionals which compete within the market place with decidely different personal ability.

Each photographer is free to personally evaluate their own level and consequently choose which fees should be applied.

TAU VISUAL LIST OF PROFESSIONAL LEVELS

Capacity or possibility of prices below that of level 1 are to be considered out of the market and not plausible in correct professional conduct.

Prices superior to those of level 7 are possible in all cases of famous
photographers.

-- LEVEL 1 --- A professional of sufficient or medium capacity without particular specialization, active at a local level, normally or minimally equipped and generally speaking oriented towards low budget jobs.

--- LEVEL 2 --- A professional of sufficient or medium capacity in line with the majority of assignements offered in his area. Active in an ample area locally without particular specialization, normally equipped and oriented towards economic solutions for clients.

--- LEVEL 3 --- A professional of good preparation with a medium technical capacity in line with average quality standards, nationally speaking. Active at a provincial and or regional level with a reasonable number of clients acquired, not available for the more economic assignements. This photographer will sometimes require the services of an art buyer, stylist, make up artist, etc.

--- LEVEL 4 --- A professional well prepared with a technical capacity which is medium or medium-high. Active in different regions and able to guarantee a perfect technical level for all normal shooting conditions, with a complete range of equipment. This photographer will often require the services of an art buyer, stylist, make up artist, etc. according to the needs of the client. Oriented towards the selection of work offered with exclusion to those of minor interest. An interesting portfolio of clients with at least one job a year with a nationwide diffusion.

--- LEVEL 5 --- A professional who is very well prepared with a medium-high or high level technical capacity, without doubt very well known compared to the average photographer in the same area; active both regionally and nationally and able to guarantee technically perfect results for all the accepted assignments, requires other professionals for the solution of specific problems and oriented towards a selection of works offered, with a significant portfolio of clients, undertaking al least 3 or more jobs with a nationwide diffusion a year.

--- LEVEL 6 --- An exceptionally well prepared photographer working both technically and creatively at a very high level, significant in absolute.
Active at a national and international level, operating in the metropolitan centers at the highest professional levels. Oriented towards a severe selection of works offered, and to the construction of a good professional image, significant portfolio of clients acquired, almost all a national and
international level.

---LEVEL 7 --- a professional of undoubted international fame, active directly or through agents in at least two countries and operating at the maximum level both professionally and creatively.

DAY RATE

This is a fee-table used to calculate the price of a job that, by mutual agreement with the client, is not paid for each single photo, but on the basis of time employed to execute the assignment.

Working day in own studio (See note)

Fees listed by TAU Visual professional level – See description of levels.

Level 1 lire 400.000 200 euro 250 $
Level 2 lire 600.000 300 euro 375 $
Level 3 lire 900.000 450 euro 560 $
Level 4 lire 1.300.000 650 euro 810 $
Level 5 lire 1.800.000 900 euro 1125 $
Level 6 lire 3.000.000 1.500 euro 1500 $
Level 7 lire 5.000.000 2.500 euro 3125 $

An image of average difficulty, in a simple ambient.

Fees listed by professional TAU Visual levels (see description of levels).

Level 1 lire 135.000 67.5 euro 85 $
Level 2 lire 200.000 100 euro 125 $
Level 3 lire 300.000 150 euro 185 $
Level 4 lire 435.000 217.5 euro 270 $
Level 5 lire 600.000 300 euro 375 $
Level 6 lire 1.000.000 500 euro 625 $
Level 7 lire 1.700.000 850 euro 1050 $

LEAFLETS, BROCHURES, CATALOGUES AND FLYERS

front cover 250 to 350 euro 315 to 435 $

5.000 to 20.000 copies

inside photo 150 to 200 euro 185 to 250 $
double page 250 to 300 euro 315 to 375 $
front cover 350 to 450 euro 375 to 565 $

Si la noi deci se ofera 4 euroi pe poza. Buna treaba. D`aia sunt atitea mertzane si gipane pe strada, pentru ca fotografu` roman (inclusiv subsemnatul) e un incult in general si un incult economic in special si accepta si astia 4 euroi, facind atita rau acestei meserii.

"Life in itself has no meaning. Life is an opportunity to create meaning. Meaning has not to be discovered: it has to be created. You will find meaning only if you create it. It is not lying there somewhere behind the bushes, so you can go and you search a little bit and find it. It is not there like a rock that you will find. It is a poetry to be composed, it is a song to be sung, it is a dance to be danced.
Meaning is a dance, not a rock. Meaning is music. You will find it only if you create it. Remember it.
Millions of people are living meaningless lives because of this utterly stupid idea that meaning has to be discovered. As if it is already there. All that you need is to just pull the curtain, and behold! meaning is here. It is not like that.
So remember: Buddha finds the meaning because he creates it. I found it because I created it.... And only those who create find. And it is good that meaning is not lying there somewhere, otherwise one person would have discovered it -- then what would be the need for everybody else to discover it?
You must be waiting passively for the meaning to come... it will never come. This has been the idea of the past religions, that the meaning is already there. It is not! Freedom is there to create it, energy is there to create it. The field is there to sow the seeds and reap the crop. All is there-- but the meaning has to be created. That's why to create it is such a joy, such an adventure, such an ecstasy.
Don't allow your life to become just a dead ritual. Let there be moments, unexplainable. Let there be a few things which are mysterious, for which you cannot supply any reason. Let there be a few doings for which people will think you are a little crazy. A man who is a hundred percent sane is dead. A little bit of craziness by the side is always a great joy. Go on doing a few crazy things too. And then meaning will be possible. "

Copyright-ul prin lume; la o adica in Venezuela, care este - de Dinu Lazar la: 12/12/2004 17:07:39
(la: O conversatie cu DINU LAZAR, fotograf)
Primim de la un fotograf din Venezuela:

THis is just to inform you that the "Revolution" that is currently set in place in this country, led by a monkey and his chimps, is just showing off it's real nature, and most of what we thought about their real intentions is becoming a solid reality.

Please excuse the intro, but go on, as this is not a political statement.

Just a few days ago, and amendment to local Intellectual Property Law, by far one of the most modern copyright and intellectual property protection laws in the world, is about to suffer a massive and abusive modification, breaking out with all the previous international agreements signed by this country, including the Bern and Paris Conventions, The Uruguay Round and other older agreements.

Basically , a group of revolutionary artists, has introduced to the revolutionary congress a proposal for revolutionary change in IP laws to force creators to register with SAPI, our Copyright Office here in Caracas, as a formal requisite to enjoy the benefits of IP protection.
THIS MEANS THAT ANYTHNG THAT IS NOT FORMALLY REGISTERED IN THAT OFFICE, WILL BE CONSIDERED OF PUBLIC DOMAIN, AND ANYONE WILL BE ABLE TO COPY, DUPLICATE AND EVENTUALLY SELL THOSE ITEMS.

I am not joking fellows. THis is happening today here, and is totally and formally intended to legalise pirating of Music CD's and tapes,VHs; and DVD's and VCD's for films, and eventually , photography in all areas.
It is well known to us that one of the most important leaders of the revolution is the owner of the largest company dedicated to piracy of such discs (software, music and movies) and is making hundreds of millions in earnings from this business, and now he will have the legal rights to do so in the open, in a proper manner, all in the name of the revolution, to help "the people" against the empire, and all the crap you may think of.

After the last fraudulent elections a few weeks ago, the revolution has taken control of all state and goverment instances and offices and there is simply nothing to do at any legal and decent level against this and many past and coming abuses.
Anyone trying to set a legal defense against this abuses is considered and enemy of the revolution and they make sure to push you into doom by means I rather not discuss here.

So consider yourself warned., Those of you, Photographers and Agencies that are currently setting plans to cut deals with clients in this country,specially with the goverment, get to know how is it gonna be, or at least, make sure you get in writing a better deal for you products and services , although things in writing, like contracts, are just disposable paper and ink for the revolution. There are other modifications to the law that would not deal with our field, but are equally abusive in other areas ( pretended ownership of satellite/broadcast transmissions, etc).

I made my best not to turn this into a political thing, just the bare minumum as to set you on "warning mode", so please if anyone wants to comment on the political side, just keep it off this forum.

Talking about protection for RF files, well... just forget it. Not even RM (or RP or L for this
matter) will have it.

We are becoming the Planet of the Apes.

Best

"Copiii vostri nu sunt copiii vostri. Ei sunt fiii si fiicele nazuintei Vietii spre ea însasi. Ei vin prin voi, dar nu de la voi. Si desi ei sunt cu voi, ei nu va apartin.

Voi le puteti da dragostea voastra, dar nu gândurile voastre; pentru ca ei au propriile lor gânduri.
Puteti oferi o casa pentru corpurile lor, dar nu pentru suflete; caci sufletele lor locuiesc în casa lui Mâine, pe care voi n-o puteti vizita, nici macar în visele voastre.
Voi puteti sa va straduiti sa fiti ca ei, dar nu sa îi faceti pe ei aidoma voua; pentru ca viata nu merge înapoi, nici nu întarzie asupra lui ieri.
Voi sunteti arcurile din care copiii vostri, ca sageti vii, sunt trimisi înainte. Arcasul vede tzinta pe calea infinitului si El va îndoaie cu puterea Lui, ca sagetile Lui sa mearga iute si departe.
Fie ca îndoirea voastra in mâna Arcasului sa fie catre bucurie; caci asa cum El iubeste sageata care zboara, la fel iubeste El si arcul stabil."

"And a woman who held a babe against her bosom said, Speak to us of Children.
And he said:
Your children are not your children.
They are the sons and daughters of Life's longing for itself.
They come through you but not from you,
And though they are with you yet they belong not to you.

You may give them your love but not your thoughts,
For they have their own thoughts.
You may house their bodies but not their souls,
For their souls dwell in the house of tomorrow, which you cannot visit, not even in your dreams.
You may strive to be like them, but seek not to make them like you.
For life goes not backward nor tarries with yesterday.
You are the bows from which your children as living arrows are sent forth.
The archer sees the mark upon the path of the infinite, and He bends you with His might that His arrows may go swift and far.
Let your bending in the Archer's hand be for gladness;
For even as He loves the arrow that flies, so He loves also the bow that is stable."

In the 18th century, under specific circumstances like the fall of the empire, successive tension of pashas, Orlophika, internal conflicts, big cities of Vlahs (Armani) like Moshopoli, Nikolitsa, Linotopi, Grammousta and many more were totally destroyed and the inhabitants were scattered towards every direction: Vienna, Budapest, Belgrad, Boukourest, Thessaloniki, Veria, Naousa, Serres, Philippoupoli, Konstantinopolis etc.

The wallachian language is an autonomous neolatin language, which was already created in the 6th century AD. The phrase (Torna-torna frater) preserved by the byzantine columnist Thephylactus Simocatis (7th AD) is considered to be the first written evidence.

Nowadays scientific research has given an answer to the birth of the makedo-romana language. The formal language of the eastern Roman State called Byzantium many centuries ago, up to the years of "Iraklios" (at the beginning of the 7th century AD), was the Latin language.

After "the first Romanian period" of the neolatin languages (derived from the folk Latin language of Balkans Latinum Balkanicum) four neolatin languages (the makedo-romana and the Moglenitiki in the axis of Egnatia and Istroroumaniki and Dakoroumaniki in the axis of Dounabe). In an exactly similar way the modern neolatin languages (Italian, French, Spanish, Portuguese) derived from the western neolatin language. In this way, we can explain the similarities among the makedo-romana, the previously mentioned European languages and simultaneously with the corresponding neolatin languages of the Balkans.
The first written signs of the makedo-romana language have their roots in the mid of the 18th century and they are mainly inscriptions of the Greek alphabet and texts, by scholars and lexicographers who used Greek and Latin alphabet.

The first grammar of the makedo-romana language of M.Boyiatzi, was printed in 1813 in Vienna. This grammar proposes the Latin alphabet so that the language would acquire a literate form. This was also previously supported by other "daughters" of the Latin language. In the recent makedo-romana grammar of academic N.Katsani-K.Ntina (Thessaloniki 1990), the makedo-romana language was written in Latin letters completed with letters from the Greek alphabet.

The choice of the alphabet of course even today, is not very simple as there are many parameters (historical, religious, cultural, political) that must be taken into account. However, an unbiased and without expediency approach to science cannot deny that a neolatin language like the makedo-romana one, can be written more efficiently in the Latin alphabet.

women are like apples - de Horia D la: 20/01/2005 16:36:18
(la: Un nou forum: "Bancuri, glume, poante...")
Women are like apples on trees. The best ones are at the top of the
tree.
Most men don't reach for the good ones because they are afraid of
falling and getting hurt. Instead, they just take the rotten apples from the ground that aren't as good, but easy.

The apples at the top think something is wrong with them, when in
reality, they're amazing. They just have to wait for the right man to come along, the one who's brave enough to climb all the way to the top of the tree.

Now Men...men are like a fine wine. They begin as grapes, and it's up
to women to stomp the shit out of them until they turn into something
acceptable to have dinner with.



The things that come to those who wait are what's left behind by those
who got there first.
A man enters his favorite rit - de Horia D la: 20/01/2005 18:08:17
(la: Un nou forum: "Bancuri, glume, poante...")
A man enters his favorite ritzy restaurant and while sitting at his
regular table, he notices a gorgeous woman sitting all alone at a nearby
table. He calls the waiter over and asks for their most expensive bottle
of Merlot to be sent over to her, knowing that, if she accepts it, she is
his.

The waiter gets the bottle and quickly brings it over to the woman,
saying this is from the gentleman over there. She looks at the wine and
sends a note over to the man.

Her note reads: For me to accept this bottle, you need to have a
BMW in your garage, a million dollars in the bank, and seven inches
in your pants.

The man, after reading her note, chuckles, and sends a note of his own
back to her.

His note reads: "Just so you know, I happen to have a Ferrari Testarosa,
a BMW 850, and a Volvo in my garage. I have over twenty-five million
dollars in the bank. But, not even for a woman as beautiful as you,
would I cut off three inches. JUST SEND THE BOTTLE BACK!"

The things that come to those who wait are what's left behind by those
who got there first.
The new priest is nervous abo - de Horia D la: 21/01/2005 17:23:49
(la: Un nou forum: "Bancuri, glume, poante...")
The new priest is nervous about hearing confessions, so he
asks an older priest to sit in on his sessions.

The new priest hears a couple confessions, then the old priest
asks him to step out of the confessional for a few suggestions.

The old priest suggests, "Cross you arms over your chest and
rub your chin with one hand."

The new priest practices this in order to be comfortable with it.

The old priest suggests, "Try saying things like, 'I see,' 'yes,'
'go on,' 'I understand,' and 'how did you feel about that?'"

The new priest says those things, trying them out.

The old priest says, "Now, don't you think that's a little better than
slapping your knee and saying, 'No $h!t! What happened next?'"
Mai baietasi, mai, voi chiar - de mya la: 26/01/2005 18:05:49
(la: Bush-Personalitatea Anului)
Mai baieti, voi chiar credeti ca eu sunt ca voi ? Eu daca fac o afirmatie, atunci nu o fac ca voi, din adancurile necunoasterii, ci bazata pe realitate. E clara cel putin chestia asta ?

Am aici un citat, primul si ultimul, pentru cei care spumega pe-aici. Sper sa nu se trezeasca vreun destept care sa spuna ca Human Rights Watch il iubeste pe Bush:

"The methods that they used are certainly prone to inflation due to overcounting," said Marc E. Garlasco, senior military analyst for Human Rights Watch, which investigated the number of civilian deaths that occurred during the invasion. "These numbers seem to be inflated."

Am spus ca e primul si ultimul, pentru ca nu este singurul de felul asta. Daca nu cautati singuri...da' pe voi nu va intereseaza parerile ca va contrazic convingerile (indiferent de ceea ce afirmati). Discutia asta ridicola, in care voi spuneti: "Nu, nu eu sunt foarte deschis la minte. Dar nu ma pune sa caut pareri care ma contrazic", poate continua la infinit. La asta sunteti buni, la vorbe. In rest, realitatea va deranjeaza.

Pentru cunoscatorii de englez - de mya la: 05/02/2005 01:49:29
(la: Osetia de Nord - Ostatici in prima zi de scoala)
Pentru cunoscatorii de engleza:

Shamil Basayev, the Chechnyan Islamic fascist who masterminded the Beslan child massacre, says all Russians are legitimate targets under shari’a law, and promises there will be more atrocities like Beslan: We’re going to do it again, says man behind Beslan bloodbath.

Mr Basayev said that he originally planned to seize one or possibly two schools simultaneously in either Moscow or St Petersburg, but lack of funds forced him to pick North Ossetia, a “Russia garrison in the North Caucasus”, and thus the root of all things bad in war-torn Chechnya, with the ‘silent consent of (the North Ossetian) population.’

He says his intention was to offer the Russian leadership no chance of achieving a “bloodless resolution” to the siege, forcing it to stop the “genocide of the Chechen people”. He says he never thought the Russian leadership would be willing to oversee the death of children, but says that he was “cruelly mistaken” and that he was “not delighted by what happened there”.

He claims that the collapse of the roof of the school gym was the result of flame-throwers used by Russian special forces, not explosives placed by the hostage-takers.

The bearded 40-year-old warlord, believed to be hiding in the mountains of southern Chechnya, looks in good health, and speaks at length in Russian. He sits in front of a banner proclaiming in Arabic: “There is no God but Allah, and Mohammed is his prophet”. He wears a black T-shirt with ‘ANTI-TERROR’ written in white Cyrillic letters, and explains that he considers the Kremlin, not himself, the terrorists. He reads the questions from a laptop computer, and cradles what he describes as a six-barrelled grenade launcher, a trophy from a Russian base.

Mr Basayev denounces what he describes as the “bloody slaughter that is raging in our land”, and cites not only the Koran and the prophet Adam but also the Chinese sage Zheng He, Winston Churchill and even Charles Darwin. ...

He describes a meeting with his commander-in-chief and formal leader of the Chechen resistance, Aslan Maskhadov, who apparently accused his most effective lieutenant of going too far in Beslan.

Mr Basayev says he told Mr Maskhadov that he is “ready to stand before a sharia court, and answer to it in all its severity if it judges I should be punished”. ...

Mr Basayev states: “We are planning more Beslan-type operations in the future because we are forced to do so.”

Justifying his attacks on civilian targets, he states: “We are at war and we look at the reality, and not at whether the population has weapons in their hands. We look at the reality of their participation in this war.

” People who approve of Putin’s policies, people who pay their taxes for this war, people who send their soldiers to this war, priests who sprinkle holy water on them . . . How can they be innocent? They are just without weapons. Russian citizens are accomplices of this war, it just may be that they have no weapons in their hands. Peaceful people for us are those that don’t pay taxes for this war, people who don’t participate, and who speak against this war."
