Bahrain's Empire Building...



Not surprisingly, word comes via The Guardian that Bahrain's given Great Britain a "Sweetheart deal" to build a new Royal Navy base in the Kingdom of Bahrain.

Interestingly, or is it ironically? That the report comes just days prior to another Democratic Kingdom's inaugural Formula 1 race, Y'all know the European GP being held in Azerbaijan's capital Baku, which is also known for its liberal Human Rights policies.

As the report notes how Britain, and presumably a Chap residing at No. 10 Downing Street, a one Mr. David Cameron are apparently just playing lip service towards improving Human Rights to the citizenry of Bahrain, in exchange for paying only a paltry $9m over three years for a new military edifice.


Meanwhile on a fairly different tangent, albeit one regarding one man's ability to show kindness for others regardless of their station in life, I found the following article regarding the recently deceased legendous' Boxer, whom Lewis Hamilton referred to in his Cool-down victory lap at Circuit Gilles Villeneuve in tribute with the following:

"Float like a Butterfly, Sting like a Bee"

To be just one small example of how truly great the late Muhammad Ali was. Which regardless of one's convictions, leads me  to Hope that Mankind can improve overall regardless of our differences...
