I was reading abundant materials and books to make good my promise of continuing writing on the Reflection of April 14 about the Battle of Giron when I had a look at the recent news that came yesterday, which were also as abundant as they are everyday.

Yesterday, because of a lack of time and space, I did not write one word about Barack Obama’s speech on the Libyan war that he gave on Monday, March 28.

I went through it again and concluded that it was not worth wasting too much paper on.
