Can we learn from the current events??

Make Love, not War!!

MANILA, Philippines - More than 6,000 couples kissed simultaneously at midnight Saturday in the Philippines with organizers of the event claiming to have set a new world record.Organizers of the annual pre-Valentine's Day celebration said they broke the record held by Hungary, where 5,875 couples kissed simultaneously in Budapest in 2005.[...]

And don't forget to cash on it
Three Manchester Boots pharmacies will sell the prescription-only medication made by U.S. drugs group Pfizer in a pilot program from February 14.

Men aged between 30 and 65 suffering from erectile dysfunction will be able to buy four Viagra pills for 50 pounds ($97) without having to get a prescription from a doctor first.[...]

Iraq with sophisticated armor-piercing roadside bombs that have killed more than 170 troops from the American-led coalition[..]
If you're not convinced, here is the image that will make the case :-) This does remind me of the embarassing presentation that Colin Powell did at the UN, just before invading Iraq.

And others who never make love, Be it Valentine's day or Chinese new year of the pig!
Israel's Cabinet voted to push ahead with construction work on a ramp leading to a disputed holy site in Jerusalem, despite objections from the Muslim world and violent Palestinian protests.
Tensions in the city have been high since last week, when Israel began work outside the compound known to Muslims as the Noble Sanctuary and to Jews as the Temple Mount. The new walkway is meant to replace an ancient earthen ramp that partially collapsed in a snowstorm three years ago.

Arab leaders have accused Israel of trying to harm Muslim holy sites. Israel denies the repair work and accompanying excavations will come anywhere near the compound.[...]

Oh, I forgot this dinosaur protected by "Socialist saints" and this Saffa7 in Egypt.

I will not finish without mentionning these articles who should have been on the first page on every newspaper, but hey, it is offer and demand and I am a biased african :-(
