This blog entry is focused more on text and is primarily an explanation of my absence, a world news report (also known as Reborn:X dabbling into international politics) and a remainder of my birthday this Thursday (which already happened). Explicit TL;DR warning notice.
Hello everyone once again, as some of you may have noticed I have been rather inactive lately due to various reasons. I had some stressful events to attend to but everything went out fine, as usual. This summer is looking to be a great one for me. Now, I am back again to the ModDB and to my daily work in the website! :)
This summer, a lot of things had happened. There was the Brexit, which apparently nobody in the high UK leadership really though of to happen in real life. This was this kind of assurance and poll results that stated everything would be 'business as usual' until you woke the next day and nearly half of UK's population is confused as to what exactly had happened. Part of the EU's top leadership wants UK to swiftly leave the whole political union and go on projecting its visions of statehood somewhere else. The resulting chaos is just that, in my honest opinion, that most of the general population didn't really understand what the referendum what about and what will be the ramifications. The Brexit shockwave wasn't as traumatic as believed and did not result in mass suicides in the Wall Street or in the DAX stock exchange. What I see is that we are and especially this generation is witnessing the changing internal structure of the European Union. The fluidity of history is once again becoming really irritating in this modern world that most of us thought would just 'go along together' and witness no more serious political problems... or wars.
This summer, the Central Europe has witnessed the most explosive and manly event perhaps in this decade and surely in the modern history of the Republic of Poland. Anakonda-15 military exercise saw NATO tanks rolling around Polish military training grounds, massed paradrop airborne infantry assault operations all complete fancy warplanes flying around. I'm sure most of followed this event, as everybody knows the ModDB folks enjoy good humor and tanks the most as the “Popular Groups” wall would say *chuckle*. Okay, that a really bad attempt at being humorous on my part. Anyways, that NATO exercise had put Poland on the military spotlight. As it seems to become more pronounced, the lines of peace in Central Europe are not as stable as most would have thought. The recent NATO summit in Warsaw was, for the most part, remembered for the incredibly tight and expanded security measures and for the temporary walls being placed around the Polish capital city. However, what the end result of the summit was that Europe sliding just a little too much to the “seems like a trouble is brewing” spectrum in something that I would like to describe as a: “Crazy Random Military/Political Happenstance Slider.” If you can imagine that. Nobody is really sure whether the planned deployment of additional NATO battlegroups in Baltic countries or in Poland in the year 2017 is going to have an actual positive effect on the security in Europe. Many people in Europe seem to asking themselves a question. “In which direction is Europe heading towards?” or “Is Russia really that of an aggressive nation?” or the ultimate question “how much will the military deployment cost the taxpayers?”. The answers to these questions are as complex as the world modern world is. All in all, the wisdom lies in staying open-minded and not succumbing to radical political influences.
This Thursday was my birthday and I am officially just a year from becoming a “full adult, not an advanced teenager” if you believe the latest in the research paper on human biology. To stop you for using Google too much, I can say that age is considered to be twenty-five. Furthermore, I got even more books as gifts and this was also the day of the Bastille Day military parade which, regrettably, I didn't get the chance to see. However, 14th of July was also a tragic day. That night in Nice, France a truck rammed into a crowd killing many people including children. it was probably one of the most unconventional and unpredictable terrorist attacks in the 21st century. On the next on a Friday night, Turkish fighter jets rocked the ground around Ankara and the Turkish military was deployed in the cities, the Bosphorus bridge was temporarily closed. The military coup attempt lasted a few hours but the entire country has changed. Never before in the 21st Europe an NATO member-state witnessned such an event. Those events in a sense, had also affected me. Although I am somewhat known for not necessarily being an emotional person.
My thoughts and well-wishes go everyone who was affected. Stay strong Turkey.
Finishing this blog entry, I would like to announce that I have begin working on a few short stories that I would like to upload. Expect some real updates from me on the ModDB, soon. :)
