 ここ↑のオータンの発言に反論した18分ごろの潮匡人の<民主党政権になったら、インド洋での給油活動は停止されることは必至的な>発言、見事に外して、オータンが正しかったね。

<太田>

 民主党(中心の)政権になっても、日本が米国の属国である限りは、宗主国の意に真っ向から逆らうような外交・安全保障政策はとれない、というのは当たり前なんだけどね・・。
 「右」の人々って、どうしてこうも非論理的なんでしょうか。

<チャッピー様>

 太田殿が作曲した曲があれば聴いてみたいです。

<太田>

 ピアノを何年間も(とりわけ子供の時に)続けて練習していたおかげで、一頃は、歌謡曲等のメロディーが頭に入ると、適当に編曲してその曲が弾けましたし、また、現代音楽「的」な「オリジナル曲」を即興で弾いたりしてましたね。
 (NHKハイビジョンで、加羽沢美濃が、リサイタルの時に、聴衆が適宜あげる歌のタイトル7〜8個を聞いて、ただちにこれらの歌のメロディーを全部織り込んだ曲を編曲して弾くのをご覧になった方もおられるでしょうが、彼女の歌謡曲等のメロディーのストックの量は私と比べれば桁違いですし、当然のことながら、私は、編曲も彼女ほど上手ではありません。)
 しかし、そんなものは手慰みに過ぎません。
 私には、往事も、そして今ではもちろん、加羽沢美濃作曲のこの曲↓

程度のものだって作れませんし、久石譲の数々の映画音楽の傑作

(これ↑は「ハウルの動く城のテーマ」。本人によるピアノ演奏)レベルのものなど、逆立ちしても作れません。
 才能が致命的なまでに不足しています。

 それでは記事の紹介です。

 北朝鮮の体制変革が一日も早いことを祈ります。↓

 Human rights groups in South Korea say North Korea has stepped up executions of Christians, some of them in public.・・・

 ウイグル騒乱については、中共当局も含め、誰もホントのことが分かっていない、と見ました。↓

 ・・・Chang Chungfu, a specialist in Muslim and Uighur studies at the National Chengchi University in Taiwan, said "the two parties -- the government and Kadeer -- are choosing the parts of the stories that favor their own agendas," in efforts to win foreign sympathy.
 He said he considers it "unlikely that a peaceful protest turned into violence against innocent people just because of policemen cracking down," suggesting at least a measure of organization to the Uighurs' attacks on Han Chinese that night.
 On the other hand, Chang said, he is skeptical of the government's assertions that Kadeer instigated the attacks because she lacks that kind of power.・・・
 Li Wei, a terrorism expert at the China Institutes of Contemporary International Relations, which is affiliated with China's national security bureau, dismissed allegations by state media of involvement by outside terrorist groups. "I have not found any proof that points at linkage between the riot and other terrorism groups, including al-Qaeda," he said.
 Li did say, however, that he believes Kadeer is in contact with the East Turkestan Islamic Movement. ・・・

 ハーバード大学の黒人教授逮捕事件は、オバマ大統領発言もあって、なかなか鎮静化しません。↓

 Barack Obama today<(24th)> phoned the white policeman he said "acted stupidly" in arresting a black Harvard professor in his own home and invited the officer to visit the White House as the president attempted to defuse a growing race row over the incident.
 Obama revealed he made the five-minute phone call to Sergeant(警部) James Crowley shortly after police unions demanded an apology from the president for saying the police in Cambridge, Massachusetts "acted stupidly" in arresting Henry Louis Gates(<黒人たる>ゲーツ<・ハーバード大学教授>) on charges of disorderly conduct after the officer responded to a report of a suspected burglary.
 The president said he should have chosen his words more carefully but stopped short of an apology. "Because this has been ratcheting up and I helped to contribute to ratcheting it up, I want to make it clear that in my choice of words I unfortunately gave the impression I was maligning the Cambridge police department and Sergeant Crowley and I could have calibrated(較正する) those words differently," he said.
 Seeking to lighten the situation further, he said at the daily White House briefing that he had invited both Crowley and Gates for "a beer here in the White House".
 However, the president also said he felt both men could have handled the situation better.・・・
 Steve Killian, president of the <(ハーバード大学やMITがある)>Cambridge<(市の)> police patrol officers' association, denied that race was a factor in the arrest and demanded an apology from Obama and the state governor(<マサチューセッツ>州知事), Deval Patrick, who is African-American(黒人) and had described the arrest as "every black man's nightmare".・・・
 Crowley arrested the professor for disorderly conduct after neighbours saw him and a black taxi driver attempting to force the jammed front door of his home. Gates said he showed identification(身分証明書) and asked Crowley for his name and badge number(警察官番号) because he did not like the way he was spoken to. The professor accused the policeman of racial profiling and apparently raised his voice.
http://www.guardian.co.uk/world/2009/jul/24/obama-race-row-beer
 ・・・The entire dust-up(争い) exemplifies "that everybody behind the badge is on the same team and everybody else is on the other team," says Radley Balko, a commentator at Reason Magazine who has written widely on the growing "militarization" of American police. "It's a classic bunker(塹壕) mentality." ・・・
http://www.csmonitor.com/2009/0725/p02s01-usgn.html
 ・・・TV commentators, laboring to explain the unusual candor and vigor of Obama’s initial comments on the Gates incident, speculated that he had probably been the victim of racial profiling(プロフィール分析) himself. Speculation was unnecessary, for they didn’t have to look any further than the story they were reporting in another segment, the story of the <guys>・・・ who insist that Obama was born in Kenya and cite as “proof” his failure to come up with an authenticated birth certificate. For several nights running, Matthews displayed a copy of the birth certificate and asked, What do you guys want? How can you keep saying these things in the face of all evidence?
 He missed the point. No evidence would be sufficient・・・
 It isn’t the legitimacy of Obama’s birth certificate that’s the problem for the <guy>s. The problem is again the legitimacy of a black man living in a big house, especially when it’s the White House. ・・・

 ゲーツ教授の悲哀は、プロフィール分析にあてはまらない例外的存在たる人物の悲哀、ということであり、これは、例えば、性同一性障害者だって、日々味わっているところです。
 私は、どちらの側の気持ちも良く分かるだけに、どちらの側の言い分が正しいか、判断は留保したいと思います。

 最後に、週末恒例の一人題名のない音楽会です。

 ショパンのマズルカ特集です。
 私の大好きな曲に限定しました。
 今回は、甲乙をつけるのではなく、いずれ劣らぬ名演である、ということにしておきましょう。
 心豊かなひとときをお過ごし下さい。
