Reply Jailhouse Hopkins November 15, 2015 - 12:53 pm Why the world hasn’t put their differences aside and wiped these ***** from the face of the Earth is beyond me. Reply ptor November 15, 2015 - 3:30 pm I’m off to Paris tomorrow for the opening night of the Montagne en Scene festival to bring a little good vibes from the mountains. The theater/organization has special permission to have this event. Such a shame that some people have not had their demons quelled in the mountains yet and leads to circumstances like these. Ski for peace. Reply GeorgeT November 15, 2015 - 4:09 pm Ptor Thanks for taking the lead in France. What is your take on the Salomon Mtn Lab skis? Thanks, George Reply Lou Dawson 2 November 15, 2015 - 4:45 pm Jailhouse, the **** (I don’t want to use their name) have become very adept at using human shields and that sort of thing. Thus hard to wipe them out without boots on the ground. And there has to be some kind of positive political entity to fill the vacuum, which apparently these countries don’t seem to be able to come up with. But then, perhaps it needs to be like Germany after WW2, where the countries are occupied and rebuilt until they can join the civilized world without falling right back into the same evil. Sure makes our problems in the U.S., seem trivial, eh? That’s my take, anyhow. Reply Cam Walker November 15, 2015 - 4:52 pm Yes. Solidarity with the people of Paris, the people of Beirut, of Iraq, Syria, Libya, Afghanistan, Yemen, … who have suffered at the hands of this fascist group. And all strength to those who are resisting them. Reply Kristian November 15, 2015 - 4:59 pm Horrific terrible news. Not counting the previous several thousand years, the War on Terror civilian death toll probably now exceeds one million souls. Reply See November 15, 2015 - 8:28 pm In asymmetric war, a few evil/deranged individuals wreak havoc. Dealing with that is not simple. To all the victims, where ever, our thoughts are with you. Reply See November 15, 2015 - 8:48 pm Make that “can wreak havoc.” Reply ptor November 15, 2015 - 10:46 pm Hey George T, the MTNLAB are nice skis with the wrong mounting position marked (too far forward) and too much camber in the production model. They’re also way too short at 184 for anyone around 6 feet (190cm) tall. Anyways time for the ‘conscious revolution’. More fighting will not stop war. Soldiers around the world need to get a real job and be ridiculed for such infantile behaviour. Then the power/money infrastructure that foments all the problem, reaction solution scenarios needs to be recognized and eliminated before the robot armies are ready. Reply Pascal November 16, 2015 - 2:13 am @Ptor Thanks for your thoughts. The robot armies are nearly ready, some are already making robots out of humans to do the killing we saw in Paris on Friday. So everybody, when you keep your heart in mind you do not lose your temper. When you do not lose your temper, you are not keen on being manipulated and you live in peace with yourself and others. Aware, responsible and inspired. To all victims and families wherever, whenever, my thoughts are with you. Reply Laurent November 16, 2015 - 3:20 am Thanks for showing your solidarité wildsnow… Ptor, I am really looking forward to see your movie in Montagne en scène ,the trailer was great. I hope will you come to Geneva and that the Festival will be maintained. Keep make us dream we need it even more in trouble times! A French guy Reply Arche November 16, 2015 - 4:06 pm wonderful comments from the world of recreation and fun, Ptor. is middle-aged skier-guide-commenter the real job to aim for? no worries though, all those troops will dutifully and selflessly continue to operate so you can play your games in the mountains, getting excited about a new pair of skis and getting teary-eyed about the sons and wife you leave behind every time you ditch them to go have your fun. maybe you stick to the me-myself-I based commentary about skis and the fun you’re having and leave the geopolitics and military commentary to the folks with experience, no? no, of course you won’t and why should you? you’re entitled…it’s called freedom and you go enjoy it for all your worth, buddy. Reply Tim November 17, 2015 - 1:29 pm Arche, you make it sound as if the “folks with experience” actually know what they are doing in the realm of geopolitics. Recent events lead any thoughtful person to the opposite conclusion: the west doesn’t have a clue what they are doing in the Middle East, and are paying a price for failed policies. Reply See November 20, 2015 - 9:34 pm Draw your own conclusions (obviously). http://www.nytimes.com/2015/11/21/world/europe/wwii-hero-credits-luck-and-chance-in-foiling-hitlers-nuclear-ambitions.html?hp&action=click&pgtype=Homepage&clickSource=story-heading&module=photo-spot-region®ion=top-news&WT.nav=top-news&_r=0 Reply Leave a Comment Cancel Reply Save my name, email, and website in this browser for the next time I comment.
