Starship Troopers – Invasion – Trailer

The original Starship Troopers came out 15 years ago and I really did love it, even though watching it now it was a bit cheesy but it was a damn good action Sci Fi for the 90s. Theatrically the first one didn’t do too well, but it still had its fans and the sequels to it were a bit of disaster but this animated movie looks pretty good. This is the first animated feature for it and I think they did a pretty good job based on the trailer and I’m hoping it will be even better.

Kuwait & The GulfWar

The torment that many went through during the Gulf War is still felt to this day by many people. And now we have to live with the Iraq that has come out of Saddam’s ashes, I for one was very happy that they took Saddam out but I knew that Iraq would always remain an issue because of their severe instability and internal issues. Kuwait suffered greatly from Iraq and to this day they do not want to pay the financial damages which Kuwait incurred, and that isn’t even close to the damage suffered by the Kuwaiti people. Kuwait hasn’t been the same since then, it did change and we persevered during that time. I won’t forget seeing CNN with the map of Kuwait and Iraqi invasion written on the screen, I didn’t understand what was going on but I thought it would be solved right away, I thought to myself why would Iraq invade Kuwait. And these days I wonder about the younger people who were born during or after the Gulf War who don’t have a sense of it, even though we were young I remember it vividly as it brought our families together and our parents tried to make it as normal as possible for us even though we knew it wasn’t. They took us to every rally, every protest, and I was so proud to Kuwaiti and so many people wanted to help us, I still have the pins from the marches in my drawers. I remember we loved that the British and US Armies went in and so many countries supported it us, I was shocked so many Arab countries supported Sadam, I found out the meaning of hate at a very young age.

Then when Kuwait was liberated I was so happy but they said that we couldn’t go home just yet, I missed Kuwait a lot. And then when we got back it was all black, it was dark, it was daytime but the sun was blacked out. Then I learned what the meaning of scorched, because Sadam’s last order was called Operation Scorched Earth, they set fire to every oil well as they exited Kuwait destroying as much as they can as they left. I remember going to school wearing a mask for almost a year and it was strange looking up to a dark sky. We were so happy every time they put one out and so many braved people from so many countries risked themselves to put out the fires, it was a painstaking process. But even now 20 years later we see the results of all that pollution and chemical weapons that were left in Kuwait and what damage it has done, now more then ever there are so many cases of Cancer and so many illness popping up at a very high rate in Kuwait it is terrifying. We all loved having our country back and building it back up again, I just hope that people have not forgotten. I for one haven’t.

V – It Begins


Now this show lived up to its expectations and left me wanting a lot more, they introduced the V, the story line and lots of action and suspense. Anna is the leader of the V, they have shown up hovering over all large metropolitan areas, people don’t know what to expect. What the humans don’t know is that the Vees have been on earth for decades infiltrating their system and reaching sensitive locations and positions within governments and businesses. ABC only released for episodes but they were amazing, the best part is where this will go, the ending is leading us in an interesting direction. I like how they have kept the quality of the story at a high level, so many complex stories to work with, a great series and a lot of room for it to grow, can’t wait for them to release more episodes.
