Recommendation 1 from ‘The Guardian’

Article Name:‘Worried about online porn? Don’t regulate the net-regulate your kids’

By: ‘Charles Arthur’

The article states that people are approaching the problem from the wrong angle when they talk about filters being applied by the internet service providers when it comes to internet porn and that people will have to apply to the service providers to watch porn. The article states that problem is not that everything is easily accessible, as that itself is the purpose of internet. However, the problem with pornography is not the internet, but the parents who do not regulate what their kids watch.

Summary:

Well, yes when it comes to porn, which is readily available anywhere even other than online, it is the parents that should regulate what their kids watch. They should talk to their kids about porn and sex so that they do not feel there is a need to watch it at all.

Recommendation 2 from ‘The Daily Beast’

Article Name:‘The mullah’s greatest fear: Kim Kardashian’

By: ‘Davis Frum’

The article states that many experts have noticed that there will be no need to pick up guns against Iran if they are given miniskirts and their culture is infiltrated with unrestrained mixing of men and women. Article also points out that according to many of Khamenei writings the weapons he fears the most are the cultural. In a way Iran is not only threatened by what America does, but also what America is, which according to Khamenei is seeking female promiscuity.

Summary:

Phew! Sounds like a script of some comic show, as what Iran’s mullahs are sacred of is nothing but an illusion that has been created by them. It might be true that there is unrestrained mixing of mean and women in the west, but then that is freedom and they know nothing of it.

Recommendation 3 from ‘Foreign Policy’

Article Name:‘The next war’

By: ‘Douglas A. Ollivant, Radha Iyengar’

The article states that from the recent Obama’s visit o Afghanistan and his statements made there, the wisdom has it that due to the war fatigue and defence cuts America will not launch any other military intervention. But the article points out that the wisdom has got it all wrong and it is more likely that in the next decade America will launch a military intervention though with a smaller footprint, as there are many changes in the world scenario.

Summary:

Well, yes the reasons cited by the writers of the article are worth considering, worth enough to convince the readers about the validity of the next war. However seriously, yes the war may happen, but the reason will be bigger than terrorism .i.e. food or water.
