Archaeologists make major discovery in Egypt's Luxor

A 3,500-year-old tomb with several mummies, sarcophagi and statues was found in the Draa Abul Nagaa necropolis.

Egyptian authorities have hailed an "important discovery" after archaeologists unearthed several mummies, 10 colourful wooden sarcophagi and more than 1,000 funerary statues in a 3,500-year-old tomb near the city of Luxor.

The 18th Dynasty tomb, discovered in the Draa Abul Nagaa necropolis near the famed Valley of the Kings, belonged to a nobleman named Userhat who worked as the city judge, Egypt's antiquities ministry said in a statement on Tuesday.

The tomb was opened to add more mummies during the 21st Dynasty, about 3,000 years ago, to protect them during a period when tomb-robbing was common, Waziri said at the site.

World War Three, by Mistake

Harsh political rhetoric, combined with the vulnerability of the nuclear command-and-control system, has made the risk of global catastrophe greater than ever.

Unfortunately WW1 didn't eliminate European Monarchs. WW11 pushed them into constitutional monarchies though it didn't end Colonialism or Imperialism.

Many areas of Africa weren't liberated until the 1960's or later.  

Central and South America suffered through the Monroe Doctrine and if I may what many R.s in the U.S. called the war against Communism through the 1980's.

The Middle East (and Africa) still suffers with what may be called Capitalistic exploitation of oil and other mineral resources.

If it weren't for oil resources the West wouldn't play a game of poker at the table.

The Seven Sister oil cartels still demand control of oil reserves.

With 'advanced' technology to harness energy through solar (including wind and wave) technology oil, coal, and other carbon based energy sources should be considered obsolete and not worth the poker game.

11/11/11

At the 11th hour on the 11th day of the 11th month of 1918, the Great War ends. At 5 a.m. that morning, Germany, bereft of manpower and supplies and faced with imminent invasion, signed an armistice agreement with the Allies in a railroad car outside Compiégne, France. The First World War left nine million soldiers dead and 21 million wounded, with Germany, Russia, Austria-Hungary, France, and Great Britain each losing nearly a million or more lives. In addition, at least five million civilians died from disease, starvation, or exposure....

More in the link above.

This among other wars calls into question if the West should intervene in the ongoing war in the Middle East.

If it wasn't for oil and the powers that control it the West wouldn't play a hand at the game. 

Today with solar, wind, and other alternative energy sources it seems as though fighting over oil is a waste of resources - not including the cost of climate change.

4000 character limit  again.

I don't care for Tina Turner's music.

My understanding is the Norse ignored the practices of the (aboriginal/Intuit) people and relied on provisions from  Denmark Scandinavia to sustain them as climatic changes eventually desecrated, or drove them out.

The Don, and others in his cabinet should read Diamonds book.

There was a song,

What's Oil got to do with it?

I meant What's Love got to do with it?

It's business.

G.W.B and his neocons played their cards and lost.
