As for the avatar of Mateja Kezman, I like his spirit and I admire his superb football skills that made him compete at the highest level in club and national teams competitions. He has some decorated record.
However, I still remember Dejan Savisavic as being a Maradona caliper player, a man who was a genius in his creativity and a magician in his dribbling and passing ability. He was a key player in the AC Milan side that terrorized the European football competitions in the early 90's, and was the MVP of the famous 1994 final against Barcelona in which he scored a breath taking goal and set two other goals in a 4/0 spanking of a legendary side of Barcelona. He shreded their defense apart and stung them with his lethal KOBRA passes. He never got his due praise for his exceptional talents. Too me, he is no less than Baggio or Ronaldinho in talent.
If not for their political problems, the early 90's Yogoslavia team would have made it all the way to the finals of European championships, specially the 1992 team.
I expect them to excel in the coming World Cup, and maybe they will oust Argentina and emerge together with Holland from the group of death to the second round.
don't know whether to laugh at him or cry. Check out the video.
Should make you cry. Ghadafi is a comedian in many cases and provides hugh entertainment by his mere appearance. You did not see his full wardrobe or his tent that he always carries with him in his official visits. But if you think about the kind of nations that produce such leaders you will definitely understand their misery. It is more or less the same across the whole region, with less intensity and madness, but the educated people and specially the non-muslim minority are between the two vise jaws: corrupt political leadership and islamic brotherhood supported by the US.
However, one should pay close attention to a fundamental phrase in his speech that mirrors the feelings of many muslims. " Allah sa7'aar oropa lelmuslimieen" means " Allah has made muslims use (enslave would be better) Europe", and he echoes some very fundamental idea that muslims have come to believe and to work on. There is almost a collective effort and organization to make Europe a muslim continent, and they are aided by the politicians in Europe and the liberal population. I am not a conservative when it comes to politics, except for the moral part, but it is a self destructive attitude away from political affiliation.
Sayed Kutb, the leading islamic ideologist and the Godfather of the new movement in the islamic brotherhood, has two valuable books on which he touches on the issue of the West and Islam. Admitting the huge gap in human standards in all aspects of life, he finds an answer to the quranic contradiction that states that muslims are the best ever on the earth planet. In his book "Signs on the road", he explains the gap in favour of the West as an opportunity, and not a deficiency. While the West is by far better, by far more advanced, and the gap cannot be breached, Kutb maintains that the way of capitalizing on such opportunity is to invade Europe. He points out that the sword is not effective anymore, and the attempts at Tours 732 a.d. and Vienna 1683 a.d. cannot be repeated with the same force they were carried out with. The way, as Kutb suggests, is to invade Europe by immigration and use their own rules to seize the power in such countries. Once democracy has served its ends in bringing muslims to power, they should do away with it. Reproducing (like rats, I may add) and being a significant player in the political arena by number should be the way.
Kutb is a genius, a man of vision and the muslims are to be admired for carrying out this evil plan with perfection they usually lack. It is not a conspiracy, for the muslims have not hidden their intentions nor their plans, and the oil money is pouring to support muslim plans in Europe, and the ideas are published in books. "Tarek Ramadan", the notorious islamic brotherhood leader who lives at large between France and England and is offered academic positions in top universities across Europe, is the leader of the European section of the islamic brotherhood and has made many public speeches in which he outlined their intentions. Nothing in the dark here.
The same can be said about a certain Big Brother across the Atlantic ..... Mexico.
