Sorry it has been a while since I last posted a blog. I am back again. A lot has happened. Internationally Syria has dominated the news. The USA has treated war with Syria. The Pope has prayed for peace. Russia has made itself into a peace maker. The Americans with their military decided to shoot first and ask questions later. Russia wanted to show that it is a new world power. It believed that war could set alight the Middle East and it could put Al-Qaeda into power in Syria. Russia also wanted to protect the Christian minority in Syria. Churches and Christians are attacked in Syria. Hopfully Syria will be sorted out. Hopfully Russia and America can unite in NATO. We need a global democratic alliance. The Cold War is over.
In Ireland the people will be asked if they want a Senate or not. I believe that there are good arguements on both sides. If we are going to keep the Senate then it needs to be reformed. When people will vote then I hope that democracy and not cost will influence their decision. John O Brien.
