Terrorists for Oil-Scotland’s Foreign Trade Policy and James Cameron’s Avatar!

21 Nov

The Thunder Awards

Winner of the Week:The voters of Afghanistan, 40% to 50% of eligible voters turned out for their Presidential election this week; amid threats and warnings from the Taliban. Dodging bullets and bombs Afghanistan was almost able to match the anemic turnout for last yeas US Presidential election which hit a high of 56%, the best turn out since 1968, what is our excuse?

Weasel of the Week: Kenny MacAskill, Scotland’s Justice Minister,  for the release of convicted Libyan terrorist Abdel Basset Ali al-Megrahi, the bomber of Pan Am Flight 103 on Dec. 21, 1988 which killed 259 people, who was diagnosed with terminal prostate cancer earlier this year. Al-Megrahi release has been linked to political calculations regarding  Libyan gas prospecting, a nation which is thought to have some of the largest remaining oil and natural gas reserves in the world.  Either way, talk about not having any moral gravitas.

Video of the Week: The much anticipated trailer for James Cameron’s Avatar was released yesterday through apple, and it doesn’t disappoint.  Cameron’s first feature film in almost 10 years is being hyped as the last big blockbuster left in 2009 and given the sci-fi epics scope it’s certainly with in the realm of possibility.  Enjoy!

    I saw 20 minutes worth of scenes from AVATAR the other day. Looks good. Light on story, long on effects.
