I decided that I had enough of the news. What happens in Afghanistan right now, changes everything. With the Western troops marches out the very last remnant of something called “trust”, the little bit that was left after the Western allies under US lead betrayed the Kurds some years ago, evaporates. Like anything else that was tried in this country over the last twenty years or so – puff, gone, welcome back in patriarchal stoneage, islamistic version. Pakistan feels betrayed too, the whole damn region is even more instable. Last week the Chinese gouvernement received a visit of some Taliban leaders. One may wonder when they’ll start mining there. The number of refugees in Europe will grow, of course.
Obviously there was / is a major misassessment, misjudging on USAmerican side, would be nice if a little more realistic point of view would be taken in general. But anyway, the deed is done, the world has to face the consequences.
Enough of this, and other idiotic things.
Today’s Sunday Music is a foxtrott titled El Manisero (The Peanut Vendor) (Eng.), composed by Moises SIMONS (1889-1945) (Eng.) ; here it comes in the 1930 version by Don AZPIAZU (1893-1943) (Ger., Eng.) and His Havana Casino Orchestra, singer is Antonio MACHIN (1903-1977) (Ger., Eng.). I hope you enjoy the music. May the coming week be less idiotic, mean, and violent – at least one can hope for it.
