7 Peperangan Terpelik Di Dunia

1. The Anglo-Zanzibar War: the shortest war in history, only 40 minutes long

Fought between the United Kingdom and Zanzibar on 27 August 1896, the conflict lasted approximately 40 minutes, making it the shortest war in history. The immediate cause of the war was the death of the pro-British Sultan Hamad bin Thuwaini and the subsequent succession of Sultan Khalid bin Barghash. The British authorities preferred Hamud bin Muhammed as Sultan. In accordance with a treaty signed in 1886, a condition for accession to the sultancy was that the candidate obtain the permission of the British Consul, and Khalid had not fulfilled this requirement. The British considered this a casus belli and sent an ultimatum to Khalid demanding that he order his forces to stand down and leave the palace. In response, Khalid called up his palace guard and barricaded himself inside the palace.

The ultimatum expired at 09:00 on 27 August, by which time the British had gathered three cruisers, two gunships, 150 marines and sailors and 900 Zanzibaris in the harbour area. A bombardment which was opened at 09:02 set the palace on fire and disabled the defending artillery. The flag at the palace was shot down and fire ceased at 09:40. The Sultan's forces sustained roughly 500 casualties, while only one British sailor was injured.

2. The Pig War: triggered by the shooting of a pig

The Pig War was a confrontation in 1859 between American and British authorities over the boundary between the United States and British North America. The specific
area in dispute was the San Juan Islands, which lie between Vancouver Island and the North American mainland. The Pig War, so called because it was triggered by the shooting of a pig, is also called the Pig Episode, the Pig and Potato War, the San Juan Boundary Dispute or the Northwestern Boundary Dispute. The pig was the only "casualty" of the war, making the conflict essentially bloodless

3. Three Hundred and Thirty Five Years' War: lasted over 335 years with no casualties

The Three Hundred and Thirty Five Years' War (1651?986) was a war between the Netherlands and the Isles of Scilly (located off the southwest coast of the United Kingdom). It is said to have been extended by the lack of a peace treaty for 335 years without a single shot being fired, which would make it one of the world's longest wars and the war with the fewest casualties. Despite the uncertain validity of the declaration of war, peace was finally declared in 1986

4. Moldovan-Transdniestrian War: where both sides?officers would drink together during the nights and fight during the days

After the Soviet Union collapsed, two-thirds of Moldova wanted closer ties with Romania and neighbors to the west. But the area of the country to the east of the Dniestr river wanted to stay close to Ukraine and Russia. War broke out, and the east split to form Transdniestria, which remains unrecognized by the world.

When Moldova and Transdniestria started fighting, it was a weird war. The local military called it the Drunken War, as officers of the combatants met every night to have a drink together. They went away in the morning and opened fire on each other. At night, they got together again to drink for those they had met with the previous night and who they had killed.

5. Emu War: how Australia lost a war against birds

The Emu War, also known as The Great Emu War, was a week-long military operation undertaken in Australia in November 1932 to address public concern over the number of emus said to be running amuck in the Campion district of Western Australia. The emus were responding to a long, hot summer, which caused shortages of food and water. The "war" was conducted under the command of Major Meredith of the Royal Australian Artillery, commanding a force of soldiers armed with two Lewis machine guns and 10,000 rounds of ammunition. But shooting blindly into a group of birds which can run up to 50 km/h (30 mph) did not brought the expected results. The birds simply ran away even after being hit by a machine gun round.

Over the course of a week or so, only a handful of the estimated 20,000 birds were actually killed. Major Meredith - the Australian commander in the "Emu war" - was astonished and famously compared the emus to Zulus. After a few days the Defence Minister ordered a withdrawal. And thus the "Emu War" ended in a military defeat for Australia.

6. The Football War: started with a football game

The Football War (La guerra del fé·—bol, in Spanish), also known as the 100-hours War, was a five-day war fought by El Salvador and Honduras in 1969. It was caused by political conflicts between Hondurans and Salvadorans, namely issues concerning immigration from El Salvador to Honduras. These existing tensions between the two countries coincided with the inflamed rioting during the second North American qualifying round for the 1970 FIFA World Cup; on 14 July 1969, the Salvadoran army launched an attack against Honduras. The Organization of American States negotiated a cease-fire which took effect on 20 July, with the Salvadoran troops withdrawn in early August. El Salvador ended up going to the 1970 FIFA World Cup1970 FIFA World Cup, where they failed to advance from the Group Stage.

7. War of 1812: caused by faulty telegraphic communications

Also called Mr. Madison's War, the War of 1812 was in many ways the strangest war in United States history. It could well be named the War of Faulty Communication. Two days before war was declared, the British government stated that it would repeal the laws which were the chief reason for fighting. If there had been telegraphic communication with Europe, the war might well have been avoided.

The chief United States complaint against the British was interference with shipping. But New England, the great shipping section of the United States, bitterly opposed the idea of going to war. The demand for war came chiefly from the West and South.

It is strange also that the war, fought for freedom of the seas, began with the invasion of Canada. In addition, the treaty of peace that ended the war settled none of the issues over which it had supposedly been fought. Finally, both sides claimed victory in the War of 1812, and it becomes clear that the whole struggle was a confused mass of contradictions.

Surat Cinta Berusia 4200 Tahun

Waaaweeee... lama tak menaip di sini.. facebook nyer pasal la ni...
Ok, ptg ni aku nak postkan satu lagi entry menarik untuk tatapan bersama... Surat Cinta Berusia 4200 tahun. (gambar atas)

Surat cinta tertua di dunia yang pernah ditemui berasal dari sekitar masa 2200 SM di lembah Niffer 150 km dari kota Baghdad, Iraq. Penemuan ini berdasarkan penggalian arkeologi sekitar tahun 1889 oleh Noah Kramer Profesor dari Philadelphia University.
Pada awalnya arkeologi menemui sekitar 70 ribu artifak berbahasa Sumeria yang pada saat itu masih belum dapat diterjemahkan maksudnya.

58 tahun setelah penemuan tersebut, sumerolog (ahli bahasa Sumeria ) terkenal didunia yang bernama Muazzez Longsor dan Hatice mencuba menerjemahkan erti yang
terkandung dalam artifak tersebut. Artifak tersebut berbentuk seperti plat diperbuat dari batu. Bila melihatnya, sebagai orang awam termasuk TS kita tidak akan tahu maksud dan arti tujuan tersebut.

Surat dalam berbentuk artifak itu dibuat oleh seorang pendeta tinggi (High Priest ) bangsa Sumeria bernama Inanna yang ditujukan kepada Sang Raja yang sekaligus suaminya pada malam pernikahan mereka. Sudah menjadi tradisi bangsa Sumeria bahwa pada saat malam pernikahan si isteri akan membuatkan puisi cinta untuk si suami.

Berdasarkan penerjemahannya dari Sumerolog orang Turki tsb ke Bahasa Inggeris adalah sebagai berikut:

Bridegroom, dear to my heart,
Goodly is your beauty, honeysweet,
Lion, dear to my heart,
Goodly is your beauty, honeysweet.
You have captivated me,
Let me stand tremblingly before you.
Bridegroom, I would be taken by you to the bedchamber,
You have captivated me,
Let me stand tremblingly before you.
Lion, I would be taken by you to the bedchamber.
Bridegroom, let me caress you,
My precious caress is more savory than honey,
In the bedchamber, honey-filled,
Let me enjoy your goodly beauty,
Lion, let me caress you,
My precious caress is more savory than honey.
Bridegroom, you have taken your pleasure of me,
Tell my mother, she will give you delicacies,
My father, he will give you gifts.
Your spirit, I know where to cheer your spirit,
Bridegroom, sleep in our house until dawn,
Your heart, I know where to gladden your heart,
Lion, sleep in our house until dawn.
You, because you love me,

Give me pray of your caresses,
My lord god, my lord protector,
My Shu-Sin, who gladdens Enlil’s heart,
Give my pray of your caresses.
Your place goodly as honey, pray lay your hand on it,
Bring your hand over like a gishban-garment,
Cup your hand over it like a gishban-sikin-garment.

Kini manuskrip dan artifak-artifak lainnya termasuk surat cinta tersebut disimpan dengan aman di Museum Arkeologi Istanbul, Turki

Lirik Lagu Drama King
Kali pertama aku mengenalimu
Mahu bersama
Raut wajahmu bersih
Meyakinkan hati ini
Aku terpaut

Semua dusta palsu
Aku tertipu
Berubah menurut nafsu

Panggilanmu gelaranmu
Baru ku tahu

Lakon layarmu hebat
Terpukau ku melihat
Isi hati upahan
Sampai bila
Kau mahu tersesat
Tidak kau penat
Hidup penuh muslihat

Mahkotamu Raja Drama

Kau Masih berpura-pura
Kata-katamu hanya propaganda
Mengejar hijau ungu
Mata kelabu
Ini bukan kau yg pernah ku kenal dulu

Panggilanmu gelaranmu
Baruku tahu

Kau bertapa
Bagai maharaja di atas lembah
Lakon layarmu yg terhebat
Memukau mata melihat

Cara Bersangka Baik

Cara Bersangka Baik

Perasaan hasad,dengki,ujub dan riyak adalah perasaan kotor yang ada di dalam hati manusia kecuali Rasulullah SAW yang telah dicuci hatinya semasa peristiwa Israk dan Mikraj.

Berikut adalah tips dari Syeikh Abdulkadir Al Jailani untuk sentiasa bersangka baik sesama insan.

Jika engkau bertemu dengan seseorang, maka yakinilah bahawa dia lebih baik darimu. Ucapkan dalam hatimu :
"Mungkin kedudukannya di sisi Allah jauh lebih baik dan lebih tinggi dariku".

Jika bertemu anak kecil, maka ucapkanlah (dalam hatimu) :
"Anak ini belum bermaksiat kepada Allah, sedangkan diriku telah banyak bermaksiat kepadaNya. Tentu anak ini jauh lebih baik dariku"..

Jika bertemu orang tua, maka ucapkanlah (dalam hatimu):
"Dia telah beribadah kepada Allah jauh lebih lama dariku, tentu dia lebih baik dariku."

Jika bertemu dengan seorang yang berilmu, maka ucapkanlah (dalam hatimu):
"Orang ini memperoleh kurnia yang tidak akan kuperolehi, mencapai kedudukan yang tidak akan pernah kucapai, mengetahui apa yang tidak kuketahui dan dia mengamalkan ilmunya, tentu dia lebih baik dariku."

Jika bertemu dengan seorang yang bodoh, maka katakanlah (dalam hatimu) :
"Orang ini bermaksiat kepada Allah kerana dia bodoh (tidak tahu), sedangkan aku bermaksiat kepadaNya padahal aku mengetahui akibatnya.
Dan aku tidak tahu bagaimana akhir umurku dan umurnya kelak. Dia tentu lebih baik dariku."

Jika bertemu dengan orang kafir, maka katakanlah (dalam hatimu) :
"Aku tidak tahu bagaimana keadaannya kelak, mungkin di akhir usianya dia memeluk Islam dan beramal soleh. Dan mungkin boleh jadi di akhir usia diriku kufur dan berbuat buruk.
Here is the beginning of my post. And here is the rest of it.

SEGALA teka-teki tentang Pengetua Akademi Fantasia musim kelapan (AF8) akhirnya terjawab.

Pengetua baru AF8 kini disandang oleh Norman Abdul Halim (KRU). Tentu pihak Astro lebih arif kenapa memilih Norman.

Nama Norman diumumkan di sebuah sidang media majlis pengumuman rasmi pengacara, tenaga pengajar dan pengetua AF8, bertempat di Hotel Hilton, Kuala Lumpur, malam tadi.
Hos baru AF8 juga turut menepati ramalan iaitu Sarimah Ibrahim dan Jimmy Shanley. Kedua mereka berjaya mengambil-alih tempat dan kedudukan AC Mizal yang menjadi AF selama dua musim.

Pemilihan Sarimah dan Jimmy ini diharap memberi sentuhan baru kepada program realiti ini. Sarimah akan mengemudikan program Debaran AF8 manakala Jimmy pula menjadi hos Diari AF8.
Gandingan pengetua, Norman dan Sarimah selaku pengacara AF8.

Sementara itu, kedua-dua mereka akan bergandingan pada hari konsert yang akan diadakan setiap Sabtu. Konsert pertama akan mula bersiaran pada 13 Mac depan melalui saluran ASTRO RIA.

Menurut Pengarah Eksekutif ASTRO Entertainment, Zainir Aminullah, "buat pertama kalinya AF memilih pasangan pengacara bukan untuk meniru rancangan lain.

"Tetapi mempunyai matlamat supaya dapat memantapkan lagi rancangan tersebut disamping membahagikan tugas seperti mengendalikan Diari AF, Konsert AF, dan Debaran AF," katanya semasa sidang media semalam.

Menurutnya lagi, pembaharuan untuk musim ke lapan ini adalah memilih hari Sabtu sebagai hari untuk peserta membuat persembahan, manakala hari Ahad pula hari 'Debaran' di mana peserta akan disingkirkan.

Pada musim ini, para penonton dan peminat AF akan diberi lebih masa dan peluang untuk menilai prestasi persembahan peserta kegemaran masing-masing sebelum menghantar undi.

Manakala penyingkiran peserta pula akan hanya dilakukan pada hari Ahad melalui program siaran langsung Debaran AF.

Selain itu, AF8 juga, turut menampilkan muka baru iaitu pelakon berbakat, Que Haidar selaku jurulatih drama. Untuk musim baru ini, pihak ASTRO masih mengekalkan barisan tenaga pengajarnya yang terdiri daripada Siti Hajar (Guru Vokal Teknikal), Linda Jasmine (Guru Tari), Adnan Abu Hassan (Guru Vokal Persembahan), Fatimah Abu Bakar (Kaunselor dan Guru Bahasa Inggeris).

Tanggang Moden??

Apa punya anak daa..... dah nak mati nanti baru nak ingat ngan mak....

Hajat seorang ibu tua, Tumi Wongsorujo mahu melawat anaknya bagi melepaskan rasa rindu setelah berpisah selama tiga tahun bukan sahaja tidak tercapai, malah hatinya hancur apabila dihalau anaknya itu.

Tumi, 52, yang datang dari Kuching, Sarawak dikatakan sanggup meminjam wang daripada sanak saudara untuk membeli tiket kapal terbang ke Kuala Lumpur pada Selasa lalu dan mencari anaknya itu walaupun tanpa alamat lengkap.

Usaha nekad Tumi mencari anaknya itu yang dikatakan tinggal di Serdang akhirnya membuahkan hasil apabila dapat menemui rumah anaknya malam kelmarin selepas dibantu oleh orang awam dan polis.

Namun apabila sampai di rumah anaknya, dia bagai terkedu apabila anak sendiri tidak mengaku dirinya ibu dan lebih pedih Tumi diherdik dan dihalau oleh anak perempuannya yang tinggal bersama suami barunya.
