Leaders Assemble for APEC Summit Family Photo (video and pics)…

[Read with Looming British Voice] Crikey… deep within the Vietnamese rain forest we discover a large assembly of ferocious creatures… each followed closely by their tribal hierarchy.  Carefully, silently, we capture their stealthy movements amid the banana trees and deeply rich native vegetation… After four minutes and thirty seconds of breathless anticipation we finally got the footage we were looking for…

The largest of the beasts emerge from the brush… The predators. A giant panda, seemingly unaware of the cameras… Just then, there it is, the moment we never thought we would see, the apex predators – a bear and lion together just as the regional colluding myths have described through the ages; seemingly oblivious to our presence – fearless in their approach… we dare not move:

DANANG, Vietnam (Reuters) – Russian President Vladimir Putin and U.S. President Donald Trump, in a joint statement on Syria, agreed to continue joint efforts on fighting Islamic State until it is defeated, the Kremlin said on Saturday.

The two leaders also confirmed their commitment to Syria’s sovereignty, independence and territorial integrity and called on all parties to the Syrian conflict to take an active part in the Geneva political process.

Moscow and Washington agree there is no military solution to the conflict, according to the text of the joint statement published on the Kremlin’s website.  (link)

[Via Daily Mail] […]  Trump did most of the talking, according to a person who witnessed the conversation.  An English translation of a Russian-language version of the statement issued afterward says the two leaders ‘confirmed their determination to defeat ISIS in Syria.’

It also confirmed that the U.S. and Russia agree that ‘that the conflict in Syria cannot have a military solution.’

Instead, the White House and the Kremlin are committed to forcing Syrian strongman Bashar al-Assad to engage in a political transition out of power, as dictated by a resolution the United Nations Security Council passed in December 2015.

The Kremlin published a Russian-language ‘joint statement’ on its website Saturday afternoon while Trump and Putin were attending the APEC meeting. As of an hour later, the White House had yet to confirm that the statement was genuine, or release its own version in English.

But it was negotiated behind the scenes in Da Nang by U.S. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson and Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov.  (read more)

          I was just going to reply to Andi Lee. It is Armistice Day, the end of the bloody Great War Catastrophe where many brave Australians lost their lives (amongst so many others). It is an honorable gesture not to be made light of and I, with humble humility honour them as I do The WW2 Veterans in America.

            The men no longer sell them on the for corners but they do have them in gas stations, grocery stores, bars etc.

            I always wrap them around my beaded tobacco pouch that I hang on my rear view mirror. When I get too many, I take them down, say a prayer and start over. I’ve got two on right now.

            It seems they are no longer making them out of paper. I used to love opening up the poppies into pretty flowers. I miss that.

            I always do my best to put in the can my largest bill. One time, a lady said, you can take more than one poppy for what you put in. My gosh, I think it was only a twenty. I said, no, I only need one.

            Lately, I’ve been getting real tired of businesses asking for my money to donate in their name. Last night, I had Barnes and Noble and Safeway ask. I’m very picky who I give my money to since we don’t have a lot. However, I will always continue with giving my largest bill to our Veterans through their poppy sales. If I only have a fiver, I will just stuff money in without grabbing one until it at least adds up to something. I’m sure I’ve looked a little goofy 😋, but I already am around the edges. 🙃

            I hope the American Legion never stops with their poppy sales.

          The poppy is technically associated with Remembrance Day, which grew out of and coincides with Armistice Day. Armistice Day commemorates the end of WW I, while Remembrance Day (informally referred to as “Poppy Day”) is a British Commonwealth holiday held to remember those who died in the line of duty while serving in the armed forces. There is obviously some cross-pollination between these two holidays and our Veterans Day. At every Veterans Day parade I’ve been to, there are veterans who pass out poppy boutonnieres.

          As an aside, sometimes I think we do a little too much in the way of consolidating holidays. We take specific holidays and melt them into a generic catch-all holiday that bleeds the historical significance out of them. Presidents Day is another example that comes to mind.

            Yes, that has really irked me for years. These holidays are part of our national heritage. It’s why I’m not very receptive to immigrants. They don’t understand our way of life and our own true heritage being honored here. They bring in their own holidays and proceed to water down our heritage, along with our votes.

            Another thing….Americans are getting away from our true history of this nation going back to the pilgrims and the founding fathers. They’d rather spend the time bar-b-qing and drinking. I have nothing against it, but it is a distraction, if no one at these event will pause for a moment and remind or share a bit of American history on those days.

            I pray you all, when gathering around the Thanksgiving table in 2 weeks, will share a bit of real history of that first Thanskgiving and why.

            The Lord has really blessed this nation for His own Glory, thru His Son, Jesus. Remind everyone of this, as well. May the Lord Bless all of you today…and in the days leading up to our Blessed Thanksgiving.

          My dad belonged to the local VFW and tradition was to hand out poppies to show support for the ending of the war. Men wore a poppy on their lapels while women wore them on the collar of their blouse. It was also a way to collect donations for disabled vets and their families.

        In Flanders fields the poppies blow
        Between the crosses, row on row,

        The larks still bravely singing fly
        Scarce heard amid the guns below.

        We are the dead: Short days ago,
        We lived, felt dawn, saw sunset glow,
        Loved and were loved: and now we lie
        In Flanders fields!

        Take up our quarrel with the foe
        To you, from failing hands, we throw
        The torch: be yours to hold it high
        If ye break faith with us who die,
        We shall not sleep, though poppies grow

          If I should die, think only this of me:
          That there’s some corner of a foreign field
          That is for ever England. There shall be
          In that rich earth a richer dust concealed;
          A dust whom England bore, shaped, made aware,
          Gave, once, her flowers to love, her ways to roam,
          A body of England’s, breathing English air,
          Washed by the rivers, blest by suns of home.

          And think, this heart, all evil shed away,
          A pulse in the eternal mind, no less
          Gives somewhere back the thoughts by England given;
          Her sights and sounds; dreams happy as her day;
          And laughter, learnt of friends; and gentleness,
          In hearts at peace, under an English heaven.

          As it’s Poppy Day. Sorry.
          Here is some more heoic poetry to get your blood stirred;

          Casabianca

          The boy stood on the burning deck
           Whence all but he had fled;
          The flame that lit the battle’s wreck
           Shone round him o’er the dead.
          Yet beautiful and bright he stood,
           As born to rule the storm –
          A creature of heroic blood,
           A proud, though child-like form.
          The flames rolled on – he would not go
           Without his Father’s word;
          That father, faint in death below,
           His voice no longer heard.
          He called aloud: – ‘say, Father, say
           If yet my task is done?’
          He knew not that the chieftain lay
           Unconscious of his son.

          ‘Speak, father!’ once again he cried,
           ’If I may yet be gone!’
          And but the booming shots replied,
           And fast the flames rolled on.
          Upon his brow he felt their breath,
           And in his waving hair,
          And looked from that lone post of death
           In still yet brave despair;
          And shouted but once more aloud,
           ’My father! must I stay?’
          While o’er him fast, through sail and shroud,
           The wreathing fires made way.
          They wrapt the ship in splendour wild,
           They caught the flag on high,
          And streamed above the gallant child,
           Like banners in the sky.
          There came a burst of thunder-sound –
           The boy – oh! where was he?
          Ask of the winds that far around
           With fragments strewed the sea!–
          With mast, and helm, and pennon fair,
           That well had borne their part –
          But the noblest thing which perished there
           Was that young faithful heart.

          In Flanders fields the poppies “grow”.
          There has been a long-running, unresolved controversy as to whether it’s “blow” or “grow”. The original (authenticated) hand-written document says “grow”. Either way, it’s a great poem.
          The poem handwritten by McCrae. In this copy, the first line ends with “grow”, differing from the original printed version.
          An autographed copy of the poem from In Flanders Fields and Other Poems. Unlike the printed copy in the same book, McCrae’s handwritten version ends the first line with “grow”. ^ In Flanders Fields and Other Poems. G. P. Putnam’s Sons. 1919. p. 3.

            At the link I posted, there is a discussion on that. It might be noted that “blow” in the context of poppies on a hillside implies growth and movement, in stark contrast to the dead, who move no more.

            I think “blow” is better for that reason.

        There is a wonderful post for Veterans Day on the website howtobeyourowndetective.com
        The author talks about veterans, martyrs of the Church, Tecumseh and the War of 1812, and even tips his cap to the CMA tribute to the murder victims of the shooters in Vegas the FBI is trying to divert our attention from. After you take in all the goodness of the Treehouse, stop there a minute or two and enjoy it.

        Turnbull did something right with the poppy. But he looks like a photobomber. Perhaps as a tyke he was in Mum’s pouch a bit too long as she bounced over the Great Dividng Range.

        “The remembrance poppy was inspired by the World War I poem “In Flanders Fields”. Its opening lines refer to the many poppies that were the first flowers to grow in the churned-up earth of soldiers’ graves in Flanders, a region of Belgium.”

        Young men, soldiers, nineteen fourteen
        Marching through countries they’d never seen
        Virgins with rifles, a game of charades
        All for a children’s crusade
        Pawns in the game are not victims of chance
        Strewn on the fields of Belgium and France
        Poppies for young men, death’s bitter trade
        All of those young lives betrayed
        The children of England would never be slaves
        They’re trapped on the wire and dying in waves
        The flower of England face down in the mud
        And stained in the blood of a whole generation
        Corpulent generals safe behind lines
        History’s lessons drowned in red wine
        Poppies for young men, death’s bitter trade
        All of those young lives betrayed
        All for a children’s crusade
        The children of England would never be slaves
        They’re trapped on the wire and dying in waves
        The flower of England face down in the mud
        And stained in the blood of a whole generation
        Midnight in Soho nineteen eighty four
        Fixing in doorways, opium slaves
        Poppies for young men, such bitter trade
        All of those young lives betrayed
        All for a children’s crusade.

A conviction that free, independent and sovereign nations will bring to fruition their promise to their peoples and when that is the trajectory, that social compact, a lasting peace and a trust between the governors and the governed they will bring peace.

    From divided countries after the war, like Germany, to the border conflicts more recently in the mideast , central Europe and central Asia. We could extend it to the the South China seas and the Indian ocean. Pakistan with India, Pakistan and Afghanistan, China and Vietnam and so on and so forth. Those geopolitical friction points are the norm. Thus let us see Canada and the US as an exemplar.

    As democracies are wont, we have the noisy voices, the public debates, the dirty linen exposed for all the world to see, perhaps to laugh, But that what free and open societies do. Canadians and Americans have fought together side by side in many wars and conflicts, died together and we should honor then together on these November days of remberance.

    Canada has elected a man who is found wanting. The US has done so also. We may empathize, but we now have a leader who will put us on he right path. That is what the people do in free societies. Canada, may have a failed leadership, but the great wheel turns and that is where hope, not passive , but active lives.

      Yes, but let us be very fair:
      It was Harper’s government, not Trudeau’s that developed TPP for the Canadian side (just as it was Harper’s government, not Trudeau’s that accepted the Uranium One deal).
      Americans have a tendency to glorify Harper; they shouldn’t. At best he was the Canadian version of W.
      Trudeau is a dippy fool, and an easy target, but let us never forget that Harper never was a reliable ally of the American republic or its people. 😉

      Americans, always repeat this whenever you start thinking about Canada: It was Harper’s government that did the negotiating for TPP, Uranium One, and at the same time pulled their forces from Afghanistan.
      Canada has proven to not be our friend.

      — Trudeau has never been completely supportive of TPP — for the wrong reasons most assuredly, and he is still an idiot (what he did at this meeting was the height of foreign diplomacy stupidity) but he wasn’t the one who actually got Canada into this mess (and tried to rope the U.S. into it) — that was the other guy working with W and O.

        Please read the last paragraph of that post again. You’ve misread the (subordinate) meaning of “has”:

        Canada has elected a man who is found wanting. The US has done so also. We may empathize, but we now have a leader who will put us on [t]he right path. That is what the people do in free societies. Canada, may have a failed leadership, but the great wheel turns and that is where hope, not passive , but active lives.

        “We now have” renders the “US has done” as referring to a previous election of a President, i.e. Øbozo…

        You have to put that one sentence in the context of the entire paragraph. To be fair, it could have been a bit more clear (I would have written something to the effect of “The US has done so several times in the past”), but the context of the entire paragraph tells us that he is not referencing Trump. We can then infer that he is talking about Obama. A2’s phrasing can be a bit out of the norm (I suspect he is fluent in at least 2 languages and that that colours his writing), but A2 is good peeps. I always find his perspective to be a great addition to the conversation.

    There is another fake news story the media is pushing for some reason……Reguarding Golf Gate—PM Abe was wearing dark sweater and pants. The man that fell into the sand trap was wearing a beige sweater and dark pants. This can be confirmed with photos.

    Trump says he didn’t see Shinzo Abe’s fall into golf course sand bunker. “I told him…I will not ask if that’s you. But if it was, I’m very impressed because you’re better than any gymnast I’ve ever seen.”

    It has been talked about already, but the very first impression I got from that photo is “Looks like Trudeau is barefoot!”

    Surely a person who likes lots of colors should get himself a color-chart. Orange and blue are opposite colors-meaning the highest contrast of color. So orangy-brown shoes stick out like a sore thumb with royal blue pants. (Same shoes with tan pants worn in a more casual setting would look okay.) But he might know that and deliberately want everyone looking at his feet!

    I am beginning to suspect that Justin Trudeau has a foot fetish with his own feet.

    Lol, Putin wouldn’t wave for the picture except for a brief second and he positioned himself so he was in full view of the cameras even though he was in the back row. He moved towards the guy on his right instead of trying to move left into the space occupied by Pres. Trump. Very telling, imo.

    This joint statement should not be underestimated! The fact that the Russians agree that there needs to be far elections to determine the future leadership in Syria is HUGE! The Russians are realizing that with the US now in the Energy business, the days of $100 a barrel are over. They recently projected that they are planning on having fuel sell between $40 and $60 a barrel. 70 percent of the Russian economy comes from their Energy sector. At some point fighting in Syria has a tremendous cost factor. They will get what they want which is a pier with access to the Mediterranean. They also realize that the US is out of the business of regime change.

    This is truly a win-win for both countries! This also gives me hope that the Russians will be willing to support us with North Korea. Our President will negotiate our Energy sector and not to step on the Russians throughout the world.

    For our President the ultimate collaboration will be with Iran! If we can get the Russians to support us their, lookout! The sky is the limit!
