They Shoot Horses in Sudan! Don't They?

by Admin

The word (Horse) becomes a political term. It is not a personal antagonizing word. It does not reveal a personal intention to antagonize somebody, either.


For example, (They Shoot Horses, Don't They?), a novel written by Horace McCoy and first published in 1935 and filmed in 1969 has encouraged me to use the word (horse) as a term in a blog called They Shoot Horses.

When I post news from any place, I add the name of the place to the complete term. If the news were from Sudan for example, the title of the post would be (They Shoot Horses in Sudan), meaning the people. If they were from Somalia, then the title would be (They Shoot Horses in Somalia) and so on. You got the idea.

The word (horse) is full of good meanings in the Arabic language, which considered as a treasure for the native speakers.

However, that does not necessarily mean the claimed to be president since his coup in 1989 is not a dictator in spite of this forged election.

The people knew the results of the election before they announced it. The people also saw for the first time the way the junta plays to (donkeynize) them.

This word is also one of my conceptual terms, which falls in the heart of the tragicomedy the religious military dictatorship plays on the Sudanese political theatre.

So, to teach the students in the universities, I encourage the instructors of the political science to use these terms without my courtesy.
