What are your Top 5 Regrets if you are dying?
Why stop to 5 regrets? Why hurt yourself with so many regrets?
Did you know what are the top five regrets of the dying?
Are the following top 5 regrets a matter of collecting data from the dying persons?
1- I wish I hadn’t worked so hard.
2- I wish I had stayed in touch with my friends.
3- I wish I had let myself be happier.
4- I wish I’d had the courage to express my true self.
5- I wish I’d lived a life true to my dreams, instead of what others expected of me.
My opinion is that only regret #2 make sense from the 5 regrets mentioned above.
The other 4 regrets are just abstract notions that are regurgitated while still among the living and do not express “my true self” as in #4.
Working hard is not a regret, unless you mean that you didn’t care to share more time with real people
Feeling happier entales the understanding that you experienced moments of happiness and you can still remember these instances vividly, moments that apparently you don’t recall…
Expressing yourself needs knowledge, training and practice in verbal intelligence, and a huge amount of determination… Characteristics that you lacked the courage to undertake, particularly since you don’t write, read…
If you sincerely had a single “true dream“, you wouldn’t be mentioning this regret: You should have been living this dream in your mind and had applied it one way or another…
And what about these major regrets:
6. Failed to tell my love partner that I love her, that she is the most beautiful, that you want to live by her side…
7. Failed to connect and communicate with my children and close relatives…
8. Failed to carry on an adventure that would have tested my metal
9. Been sold as a slave girl and used as a sex slave and resumed my life as if this is my destiny
10. Been sentenced to be stoned to death for eloping with someone I love…
11. Failed to “weave” long lasting friendships because I was too busy with minor tasks…
12. Regret for experiencing famine in childhood
It is said: “Better be ruled by someone who never felt hunger and experienced famine: The stomach remembers having been filled once…than the reverse alternative

Washington Times: It was the rebels, confirmed victims of chemical attacks to UN official.

Lethal Gas  containers sent by Saudi Arabia’s Bandar intelligence services (longtime former ambassador in USA), stocked in tunnels, and rebels had no idea what they were… and how to use them?

Shaun Waterman published to the The Washington Times this August 30, 2013

Testimony from victims strongly suggests it was the rebels, not the Syrian government, that used Sarin nerve gas during a recent incident in the revolution-wracked nation, a senior U.N. diplomat said Monday.

Carla del Ponte, a member of the U.N. Independent International Commission of Inquiry on Syria, told Swiss TV there were “strong, concrete suspicions but not yet incontrovertible proof,” that rebels seeking to oust Syrian strongman Bashar al-Assad had used the nerve agent.

But she said her panel had not yet seen any evidence of Syrian government forces using chemical weapons, according to the BBC, but she added that more investigation was needed.

Damascus has recently been facing growing Western accusations that its forces used such weapons, which President Obama has described as crossing a red line.

But Ms. del Ponte’s remarks may serve to shift the focus of international concern.

Ms. del Ponte, who in 1999 was appointed to head the U.N. war crimes tribunals for Yugoslavia and Rwanda, has sometimes been a controversial figure. She was removed from her Rwanda post by the U.N. Security Council in 2003, but she continued as the chief prosecutor for the Yugoslav tribunal until 2008.

Ms. del Ponte, a former Swiss prosecutor and attorney general, told Swiss TV: “Our investigators have been in neighboring countries interviewing victims, doctors and field hospitals. According to their report of last week, which I have seen, there are strong, concrete suspicions but not yet incontrovertible proof of the use of sarin gas, from the way the victims were treated.”

She gave no further details, the BBC said.

Before It’s News posted this August 30, 2013 a video that was banned by Googles which states rebels confirmation of using sarin gas.

The lies being told by US government agencies and the mainstream media over in Syria continue to unravel as a Free Syrian Army Rebel has come out and admitted to the Associated Press that the rebels were responsible for the chemical attack in Syria blamed upon Syrian government forces.

If this information isn’t bad enough, the rebels also admit that the weapons were supplied to them by US ally Saudi Arabia.

Is Barack Obama now going to attack Saudi Arabia and the FSA rebels or will this be overlooked by the globalists and the White House and Syria attacked anyways? A video report is also below.

Syrian rebels in the Damascus suburb of Ghouta have admitted to Associated Press journalist Dale Gavlak that they were responsible for last week’s chemical weapons incident which western powers have blamed on Bashar Al-Assad’s forces, revealing that the casualties were the result of an accident caused by rebels mishandling chemical weapons provided to them by Saudi Arabia.

“From numerous interviews with doctors, Ghouta residents, rebel fighters and their families….many believe that certain rebels received chemical weapons via the Saudi intelligence chief, Prince Bandar bin Sultan, and were responsible for carrying out the (deadly) gas attack,”writes Gavlak.

Rebels told Gavlak that they were not properly trained on how to handle the chemical weapons or even told what they were. It appears as though the weapons were initially supposed to be given to the Al-Qaeda offshoot Jabhat al-Nusra.

“We were very curious about these arms. And unfortunately, some of the fighters handled the weapons improperly and set off the explosions,” one militant named ‘J’ told Gavlak.

His claims are echoed by another female fighter named ‘K’, who told Gavlak, “They didn’t tell us what these arms were or how to use them. We didn’t know they were chemical weapons. We never imagined they were chemical weapons.”

Will Barack Obama continue to attempt to start WW3 now that this information has come out and if so?

Will TPTB and their propaganda specialists attempt to portray this report as false?

Infowars has more answers to these questions which will show anyone who doubts the validity of this report only needs to learn who the original source of this story is, below.

If accurate, this story could completely derail the United States’ rush to attack Syria which has been founded on the “undeniable” justification that Assad was behind the chemical weapons attack. Dale Gavlak’s credibility is very impressive. He has been a Middle East correspondent for the Associated Press for two decades and has also worked for National Public Radio (NPR) and written articles for BBC News.

The website on which the story originally appeared – Mint Press (which is currently down as a result of huge traffic it is attracting to the article) is a legitimate media organization based in Minnesota. The Minnesota Post did a profile on them last year.

Saudi Arabia’s alleged role in providing rebels, whom they have vehemently backed at every turn, with chemical weapons, is no surprise given the revelations earlier this week that the Saudis threatened Russia with terror attacks at next year’s Winter Olympics in Sochi unless they abandoned support for the Syrian President.

Note: The UN Independent International Commission of Inquiry on Syria was established in August 2011 to examine alleged violations of human rights in the Syrian conflict which started in March that year.

Syrian entrepreneurs flee war-torn country to save their tech ideas?

Like many in Aleppo, Louay Otba’s hope for the future now lies under a pile of rubbl e. A few months ago, his eco-friendly water decontamination technology won third place at the MIT Arab Business Plan Competition.
For a young entrepreneur in Syria, where family businesses and clan ties rule the economic landscape, the opportunity was unprecedented. Now, the materials he bought with his prize money have been shelled into oblivion and his office in Aleppo’s Sheikh Najjar industrial zone leveled.
There’s no option but to leave. “I’m not worried about my life in Aleppo,” he said over tea in Beirut. “But I’m an entrepreneur. If I stay in Syria, my idea will die.”
As Syria’s regime and its myriad opponents wage war, the United States is weighing a push to enter the fray. Of particular concern is the fortunes of Aleppo, where the city’s renowned industrial centers lie in tatters.
The decimation of a company is hardly as stark as the human brutality depicted on news sites and YouTube. Yet the closure of many of

Syria’s small and medium-size businesses — collectively worth billions of dollars — has left its economy shattered.

Timeline: Unrest in Syria

Nina Curley published in the Washington Post this August 30, 2013:

Two years after the first anti-government protests, conflict in Syria rages on. See the major events in the country’s tumultuous uprising.

Beirut- It’s not just young entrepreneurs being forced out of Aleppo. Syria’s lifeblood, the textile industry, is also in retreat.
Revered throughout the Arab world since the days of the Silk Road, Aleppo’s fabrics fueled one-fifth of Syria’s industrial output in 2011, when the textile sector employed 30% of the country’s workforce.
In recent years, its colorful, bawdy lingerie became an iconic secret of Damascus’s old souks.  Now, the sector is producing at an estimated 10% of its former capacity. Textile factories have been dismantled, with machine parts sold to Turkey for a fraction of their worth. The city’s industrial leaders have fled. Most headed for Egypt, which welcomed them under President Mohamed Morsi.
Whether Egypt continues to be the best option is an open question. Those looking to get beyond Egypt face a quandary. Many who have ties in Lebanon have already crossed the border, while entry to the Persian Gulf countries remains difficult for most, and economic sanctions complicate travel to other countries around the globe.

Jordan, Syria’s resource-poor neighbor to the south, has opened one of the few avenues available to Syrians for starting over. Jordan’s Oasis500, a tech start-up accelerator at the heart of Jordan’s booming information and communications technology sector, offers Syrians with viable business ideas passage into Jordan.

Those who pass the first pitching round are welcomed for 3 months into its white stone building in the King Abdullah Business Park, a military-gated enclave overlooking Amman that houses Jordan’s tech jewels: HP, Ericsson, Cisco, Microsoft, Dell, Samsung and LG.

(Disclosure: The writer’s employer, Wamda, has an investment arm that partners with Oasis500, but its news division covers technology in the region independently of the investment side.)

For Judy Samakie, whose father’s factory produced furniture textiles and curtains, the idea sounded too good to be true. After looters had threatened to bomb and burn the factory to the ground, the Samakies paid to have it protected.

Safety was a new cottage industry; mercenaries had kidnapped her brother and threatened to cut off the hands of her family’s factory manager unless ransom was delivered.
