Nightmare prophecy realised? I hope not

A few days ago I voiced concern at my recurrent nightmare...I was horrified this morning to wake up to the news of the massive explosion in Beirut, which injured hundreds (photos here) and killed Rafiq Hariri ( ex - PM) among others . I am just hoping this is the end of the story..Folks whenever I have this dream horrible things happen. I certainly don't want another civil war in Lebanon, nor a war in Syria because people have started to point accusatory fingers there ( see the comments here). I am very very angry at this and hope the culprits are found because I cannot see a clear reason yet for what happened today. This is not the work of your usual terrorist. I sincerely hope that the nightmare ends here. Rest in Peace Hariri and all the others who died today and have not been named , may God bring patience and healing to their families.

No, no, no, you are the sweet one. (I can tell by your writing.) I'm going to spend a couple of days getting to know you through your previous posts. I'm so excited I've met a Libyan! Take care...

Libyan

Just on sandmonkey blog, seems you have 2 blogs now (Smile)

also did not know libyan population as low as 5 million, same as here in scotland UK region, especially as heard Egypt next door has 50 million, does that mean libya gets a lot of egyptian migration

as for nightmare would not worry about it

Good morning Highlander!
I am from Denver, Colorado. It seems that you are quite the traveler. What do you do?

Alan, Yes we have many Egyptian guestworkers in Libya. The legal ones are teachers, professors and employees in other Libyan institutions. The illegal ones are labourers of all types, craftsmen, small technicians.
Did not mean to have 2:) blogs but some people wanted answers at sandmonkeys blog and I thought it would be helpful to them. I hope it was ;)

Jeremy : good morning to you and for me it's evening here...if I tell you what I do what kind of cover have I got left ;) let's say I just like travelling . Denver Colorado hmm very interesting ..would you like to tell me about it? I have never been to the States, but may go there this summer ( depending on a lot of things)
