  1. Usually I do not read article on blogs, however I would like to say that this write-up very pressured me to try and do it! Your writing taste has been surprised me. Thanks, very great post.

  2. The show of power is common from the so called democracies and socialist now a days . The underdeveloped nations have nothing but to protest. The damage and loss is to be paid by the non violant people.
