Have a Heart.....

Happy Valentines Day, one and all! Yes, the day of love, named in honour of a bloke who had his head cut off for performing marriage ceremonies...

The 227th anniversary of a white colonialist being killed by 'natives' who didn't want him there (Capt. Cooke in Hawaii)...

The 113th anniversary of the US annexing an independent country (Hawaii again)...

The 77th anniversary of bloodshed as gangs fought to control a city (the famous massacre)...

The 48th anniversary of Iraq joining an Arab federation...

The 34th anniversary of the US relaxing trade restrictions against China...

The 28th anniversary of the US government announcing plans to sell billions of dollars worth of arms to Egypt, Saudi Arabia and Israel in an effort to "maintain military balance in the Middle East"...

The 27th anniversary of the US ambassador to Afghanistan being kidnapped (he was later killed)...

The 18th anniversary of a booby-trap killing prominent members of the PLO...

The 17th anniversary of an Islamic fatwa issued against an 'artiste' who had offended the religion (Salman Rusdie)...

The 15th anniversary of a multi-national ban on food imports to stop an epidemic (cholera in South America)...

The 12th anniversary of 27 Islamic fundamentalists being sent to prison (one of Algeria's biggest anti-terrorism trials)...

The 11th anniversary of new fighting in a war that was supposedly over (between Ecuador and Peru - only 90 minutes after a cease-fire)...

How things have changed over the years............

And what a day of 'love' it is!

Cheers m'dears!

Don't forget that the original Valentine was a priest who sent a love letter to his jailor's daughter.

...he was then beheaded the next day.

Shit, ain't love grand!s
