Bogged Down

The international community seems to be sitting on the moral high ground telling all and sundry that they should be democratic and free but what if it cost the lives of those people, ordinary folk who just want to live their lives, go to work, collect their wages to feed a family and put a roof over their heads, that is what we all strive for, to survive and achieve a better standard for your family.

Tunisia where vast numbers are heading for southern Europe, Afghanistan, people flocking to distant lands to avoid the bloodshed, Iraq, Libya, Cambodia, Thailand, the list is endless, Mexico where both a civil war and drug wars are raging, the Caucasus, more mindless slaughter, Syria, Israel, Palestine. The western nations are not satisfied with all this suffering they have to poke a stick at China trying to destabilise that country with calls for democratic change.

What most countries ask for is stability steady jobs and some wages to feed the populace, democracy is a vague, nebulous and abstract concept to many people all they want is a meal and to survive till tomorrow.

Can we please stop all these wars, stop all these terrorist atrocities can we not live in peace.

About michaeldouglasbosc

I am retired and live with my wife on a small olive finca in the middle of a forest in the mountains of Spain in Catalonya. I served 9years in the armed services, am an engineer and because of my love of navy sailing ships a naval historian of the 1700-1800's, plus the author of 10 books. When I retired I started writing adult books my first being A Soldiers Wind. Then came Stanley's story again adult books such was his life. Another book on life in the 1950's this very much an adult book. I have now returned to my love of the sea and my latest navy book 'A Plymouth Story' follows the life of Dr James Blackstock. But Clearing In The Forest is an historical fantasy set in the middle ages at the end of King Johns reign. All the books are published on Kindle and Create a Space in paperback. I have worked all my life and for relaxation I sailed a coastal yacht for many years, but deep inside me was a writer waiting to get out. So when I retired I started writing I find story telling both relaxing and - for me - a pleasure.
