Welcome Possums

Welcome to Miss World Security!

Drumroll… I am Miss World Security and this is a blog dedicated to all topics related to international security and quirky exotic bits and pieces. Why bother making such a blog you may ask my dear fellow citizens of the world? Well, it surprises me how much the media leaves out of its many reported stories. And what I mean by that, is the background information on conflicts and international happenings. You could go to a political commentary website of course, but often those articles are hard to swallow if you do not come from a particular academic or professional background. So I decided to make a blog where we can explore current events from a wide range of angles, not tradionally heard or seen in the media. I will also explore concepts used in international relations and international security, so that you can relate them directly back to current events. There may be a few curve balls thrown in for good measure (I was quite good at dodge ball back in school, if only it was an olympic sport! *shakes fist!*). And just a warning now before we get stuck into it, I like cheese. A lot. So if your not dairy friendly, things could get a bit awkward. But I promise to be nice.

If you would like me to write a post on a particular topic, please send me your suggestions. Hopefully we can create a community that’s open minded and knowledgeable. Instead of advocating more tolerance (I hate that word) I would like to advocate more compassion instead.  So hopefully you will stick around and we can become friends! 😀
