 ウクライナ政府、同国軍が国境線を超えて侵入した露装甲車列を攻撃したと発表。
 他方、露政府は今週中に「人道支援」車列を再び送り込むと宣言。

 世界的にはどんどん平和になってるが、だからこそ、戦争大好き人間はニッチで暴れ回らざるをえない?

 リビアは、カタールが支援するイスラム主義叛徒側とア首連・エジプトが支援する政府側との間で内戦状態という構図なんだね。
 (エジプトはア首連の戦闘機と空中給油機に航空基地使用を許可。)

 それにしても、エジプト人の「平和志向」はカワユイである。

 強制収容された米国よりははるかにマシだったってこと。↓

 「・・・ブラジル<では、>・・・大戦中に枢軸国の日系移民は弾圧され、日本語の教育や新聞の発行、ラジオの所有などが禁じられた。戦況を知る手段は限られ、日系社会は玉音放送の真偽すら確認できずにいた。・・・」

 「・・・関東平野の利根川より北に弥生文化は波及していなかった・・・

 ますます、私自身の事例と似て来たが、それはそれとして、その間、朴大統領が大統領官邸のどこにいたのかを大統領は明らかにする必要があるだろが。↓

 韓流の世界風靡の原因を追究した本の書評だ。↓

 <超勤勉と政府の努力だと。(どっちも日本統治のおかげくさいな。(太田))↓>
 ・・・South Korea's rags-to-riches story was rapid and, inevitably, wrenching, achieved through a fierce discipline that included routine thrashing and bullying of schoolchildren, enforced patriotic shopping habits, and a Stakhanovite dedication to hard work. It also benefited from the government's determination to overcome such setbacks as the 1997 Asian financial crisis, which hit South Korea hard, with creative planning for the future.
 <金大中大統領の決意に始まるとさ。(ま、金さん日本人だもんな。(太田))↓>
 It was at that point that the leader of the day, president Kim Dae-jung, looking around at the catastrophe the crisis had wrought and with little capital to throw around, decided that South Korea would become the world's leading exporter of culture – hallyu. It was an unlikely call, but two decades on, K-pop earns millions for the country; Korea's TV soap operas bring entire nations to a halt in Asia, Africa and the Middle East; the world's young play its video games, and the country has conjured up an internationally renowned film industry from nowhere. Add to that the fact that Gangnam Style was the most watched music video all time. It was made by Psy, the closest South Korea comes to a bad boy: his transgression was to walk on the grass when he was seven.
 <とにかく、政府が特定部門を選定し、支援し投資したおかげだって。↓>
 How was all this done? With the same formula that had brought Samsung from the mediocrity of "Samsuck" to world leadership in mobile telephony: a focus on key sectors, with government support and investment.・・・

 オバマがシリア領空内でIsisの偵察を行うことを許可したってんだけど、何でそんなこと公にする必要があんだろね。↓

 Obama Approves Air Surveillance of ISIS in Syria・・・

 今度は、米人記者が、シリア内のアルカーイダ系組織から解放された。↓

 American freelance writer Peter Theo Curtis was released Sunday by an Al Qaeda affiliate in Syria・・・Nusra Front・・・, just days after James Foley was executed by another Islamist terror group<Isis>.・・・
 <同組織は、今年、Isisのアルカーイダ破門を契機にIsisと袂を分かったもの。↓>
 Nusra Front split off from IS earlier this year, after the AQ leadership disavowed IS.・・・
 <両組織は張り合ってるから、Isisによる米人記者処刑が今度の動きをもたらした可能性が。↓>
 Groups like IS and Nusra Front are waging war to varying degrees against each other. In that sense, some say, it is impossible to dismiss the rapid succession of outcomes in the two hostage cases as mere coincidence.・・・
 <今回の解放には(マッチポンプの)カタールが仲介したが、米国に代わって同国が身代金を支払った可能性も。↓>
 ・・・the government of Qatar, a country that is both a partner of the United States in the Middle East and a contact for some radical Sunni Muslim organizations in the region, was involved in negotiations for Mr. Curtis’s release. ・・・
  ・・・no ransom was paid for Curtis・・・
http://www.csmonitor.com/USA/Foreign-Policy/2014/0825/Why-was-one-US-hostage-in-Syria-killed-and-another-freed
 ・・・it is extremely unlikely that a group like Jabhat al-Nusra would free Curtis, a highly valuable bargaining chip, out of the kindness of its heart, the Qataris probably ponied up the cash to set him free. ・・・

 以下は、昔から変わっていない米国の風景だ。↓

 「・・・<米国では、>15〜34歳までの黒人青年の死因のトップが射殺・・・。黒人同士の喧嘩や暴行などで殺害されることがほとんど・・・
 過去10年で警察官に殺害された米市民は5000人に達したという。イラクでの戦死者が4489人なので、それよりも多い数字だ。これが世界の民主主義を代表する国家であるとは、どう考えても思えない。1年にすると500人の市民が警察官や州兵など、体制側の人間に殺害されているのだ。・・・」
http://business.nikkeibp.co.jp/article/report/20140825/270349/?n_cid=nbpnbo_mlt&rt=nocnt

 その米国での新しい風景は、米国民一般の自国の悲観視だ。↓

 ・・・pessimism in this country isn’t usually this durable or profound.・・・
 <4分の3超が自分達の子供達の生活は悪くなると答えた。↓>
 ・・・<in> a Wall Street Journal/NBC News poll from early August・・・76 percent of Americans ages 18 and older weren’t confident that their children’s generation would fare better than their own. ・・・
 <70%超が米国は間違った道を歩んでいる、また、60%が米国は衰亡しつつある、と答えた。↓>
 The poll also showed that 71 percent thought that the country was on the wrong track.・・・<and> 60 percent of Americans said that we were a nation in decline. ・・・
 <(復習だが(太田)、)6月末の別の世論調査で、信頼度は最高裁が30%、大統領は29%、議会派7%だった。↓>
  ・・・a Gallup poll in late June that showed that Americans’ faith in each of the three branches had dropped to what he called “near record lows,” with only 30 percent expressing confidence in the Supreme Court, 29 percent in the presidency and 7 percent in Congress.・・・
http://www.nytimes.com/2014/08/26/opinion/frank-bruni-lost-in-america.html?ref=opinion

 その米国じゃ、組織に属さないで働いている人が既に3分の1に達しているとさ。↓

 Freelancers, independent contractors and temp workers are on their way to making up the majority of the U.S. labor force. They number 42 million, or one-third of all workers in the nation. That figure is expected to rise to 40% — some 60 million people — by the end of the decade.・・・

 アイルランド生まれのある米国人が支那人差別運動の中心だったというハナシが出てる。
 (一人のせいにするな。要は、米国の白人の多くが反有色人種だったってことだろ。(太田))↓

 ・・・Denis Kearney was born in Oakmount, County Cork, Ireland in this month in 1847. He emigrated to America and worked in several jobs in the San Francisco Bay Area.
 During the period known as the Long Depression, which started in 1873, he became the most virulent attacker of Chinese laborers. His slogan was, simply, "the Chinese must go."
 In July 1877, rampant anti-Chinese violence broke out in San Francisco, Kearney was elected Secretary of the newly formed Workingman's Party of California, a group of anti-Chinese workers and he led often violent attacks on Chinese workers on the railroads.・・・
 <支那人排他法が1882年に制定された。↓>
 Kearney faded from sight after that, but the laws against Chinese that he helped pass were his legacy most notably the Chinese Exclusion Act of 1882.

 現在のヨルダン、バーレーン、カタール、オーマンの首長、及びブルネイの首長が英陸軍士官学校出なんだって。↓

 ・・・Four reigning Arab monarchs are graduates of Sandhurst and its affiliated colleges - King Abdullah of Jordan, King Hamad of Bahrain, Sheikh Tamim, Emir of Qatar, and Sultan Qaboos of Oman. Past monarchs include Sheikh Saad, Emir of Kuwait, and Sheikh Hamad, Emir of Qatar・・・the Sultan of Brunei・・・
 <でも、その多くの国で彼らは軍を自分達一家を守るために用いている、と。↓>
 Sandhurst may be marvellous for the UK, a country where the army is subservient to government, but it is also delivering militarily-trained officers to Middle Eastern monarchies where, often, armies seem to exist to defend not the nation but the ruling family.

 瞑想が英国で大流行らしいが、精神疾患にも効くものの、場合によっては症状を悪化させることも。(この話前にもしたよね。(太田))↓

 ・・・mindfulness-based cognitive therapy (MBCT) courses・・・a quasi-Zen desire to experience everything in a more present, conscious way・・・can reduce relapses into depression by 44%. It is, say the researchers, as effective as taking antidepressants. ・・・
 While mindfulness meditation doesn't change people's experience, things can feel worse before they feel better," she said. "As awareness increases, your sensitivity to experiences increases. If someone is feeling vulnerable or is not well supported, it can be quite daunting. It can bring up grief and all kinds of emotions, which need to be capably held by an experienced and suitably trained teacher.・・・
