After my usual look at Chatters – I usually move to my Facebook account through which I am able to maintain close contact with my family and friends around the world. I am aware that many folk are reluctant to use the facilities offered – but have to say that over the past 5 years I have had considerable pleasure and located many friends that I have not seen personally for something over 45 years.
HOWEVER I regret that today I have seen two entries and photographs which would cause distress to many who saw them. First there was the photograph-(presumnably carefully concocted with Photoshop) showing what was said to be the North Korean Airforce planes(some 40-50 of them) who reportedly were preparing to attack the approaching USA fleet – and indeed supposedly prepared to go much further afield.
The second item was an article stating that China had sent some 30,000 troops to boost the North Korean Army should they be invaded. Both of these articles were removed from Facebook in very short time.
One wonders how anybody with an ounce of respect for others could induldge in such fantasies, for there is little doubt that this world of ours is probably closer to WW3 than at any time previously.
Am I being over sensative – or are things in this world of ours truly presently finely balanced – Finally may I say that I shall continue to use Facebook, but urge caution before accepting that just because photographs are shown in support of a story – (they can easily be forged) don’t always take them as fact.
