Describing the “difficult childhood” of the CFSP, he nevertheless gives it an over-biased and simplistic assessment. On the Balkans, he says that the EU “can be justly proud of its achievements in stabilizing the region…”. On Solana’s role, he states that “he has put out bush fires in Macedonia…”. Isn’t this – to say the least – a distortion of history, suggesting the EU has acted in the Balkans in total isolation? The fighting in Bosnia only stopped in 1995 after the US and EU joined forces after many years of transatlantic – and even intra-European – disagreement. The Kosovo crisis could only be overcome by using NATO, of whose military mission approximately 80% was executed by the Americans. Macedonia in particular has been an excellent example of very effective conflict-prevention by a joint NATO/EU/OSCE cooperation. I know it is difficult for many EU pundits to acknowledge that NATO, yes even the Americans, perhaps also played a role in stabilizing this part of Europe’s backyard, but a fair and mature analysis of the first years of CFSP should at least have made a proper reference to the indispensable role NATO has played in managing the crises in the Balkans.

With both Steve and Jack a bit crook, two tee starts don’t work too good when you only have one fella to put it together. In saying all that, it was a truly great day, the course was in tremendous condition and the greens were lightning fast, causing the Capt’ to have his fair share of three putts. I think it has been mentioned in the Capt’s column before but if you have not been “Lumpyed” on a golf course it is time you were, early to bed tonight Bob.(From left to right): Vin Connellan, Colin Oliver, Jan Thorsberg, Murray Hart, Doug Campbell, Rick Forrest and Sid Ottaway.Pat’s Irish mates were back with us today, one of them getting a free green fee for next week in the lucky draw, as did John Stafford. There were no really good scores out there today apart from Pat Regan’s 40 points, which won Div A by five from Gez Tracey and Kim Stokes’ 39, which won him Div B by the same margin from John Locke. Newcomer to the Outback, Jerry McCarthy, landed Div C with his 38, also a comfortable margin ahead of two on 34, Colin Oliver and Greg Hill.There were just three ‘2’s from Frank O’Hara, Pat Regan & Fred Land.Div A (0-12)1st Patrick Regan (10) 40pts2nd Gez Tracey (12) 35pts3rd John Cunningham (7) 34pts4th Neil Lavery (12) 34ptsDiv B (13-16)1st Kim Stokes (16) 39pts2nd John Locke (15) 34pts3rd Tony McDonough (14) 32pts4th Murray Hart (13) 32ptsDiv C (17+)1st Jerry McCarthy (17) 38pts2nd Colin Oliver (18) 34pts3rd Greg Hill (26) 34pts4th John Stafford (20) 33ptsTuesday, Feb. 8, Pattaya C.C. – StablefordThe 26 Outbackers here this morning were greeted with a bit of a surprise on the course, after the heavy overnight rain filled most of the bunkers to the brim and carts were only of restricted use, which is quite unusual for PCC. We even heard reports of a golfer trying to play out of a bunker with his ball lying under water, needless to say he didn’t get it out, but he could have taken a drop in the bunker!Chad did an excellent job again, organising the troops but the best score his four-ball could muster was 26 points; must be something to with the company he keeps – yesterday Capt’ Bob was “Lumpy’d” today Chad was “Lawton’d”!Mike Allidi returned to play with us after an absence of more than a year but his winning streak continued, notching up his fourth win in a row with the Outback on this course. Today he had 39 points (71 gross). His previous wins came with gross scores of 68, 74 and 72 – maybe he likes the course.Alan Whittingham, whose game is coming together at last, took second with an excellent 38 points ahead of John Locke, a long way back in third with 32.Div B went to Arthur Bailey, who won with a mere 33 points ahead of Jinjo O’Neill (32) and Chris Thompson (31), who was having his last game with us for a few months as he returns to Aus.There were three ‘2’s from David Day, Doug Chalkley and Mike Allidi.Div A (0-18)1st Mike Allidi (2) 39pts2nd Alan Whittingham (16) 38pts3rd John Locke (15) 32ptsDiv B (19+)1st Arthur Bailey (24) 33pts2nd Martin O’ Neill (30) 32pts3rd Chris Thompson (26) 31ptsWednesday, Feb. 9, Crystal Bay – StablefordTwenty-eight Outbackers headed out to Crystal Bay with directions from Capt’ Bob, who was off to Royal Hills on course inspection duty, as to the best and quickest way to get there; unfortunately some got lost but eventually found their way to the course.The course was very busy and the B & C nines were open for the day; it was in good condition and the greens were flat and fast. We played from the white markers, which was a fair test for all golfers.Bernie Stafford continued his good form with 40 points which won Div A from Owen Walkley on 38, who is also playing well. Div B went to the continually improving Gus George with 38 points, from Mike Jefferies on 37; these two being well ahead of the rest led by David Davies and Bob Lindborg, both on 29.There were five ‘2’s from John Locke, Bernie Stafford, Steve Milne, Paul Greenaway and Murray Hart.Div A (0-14)1st Bernie Stafford (14) 40pts2nd Owen Walkley (12) 38pts3rd Paul Greenaway (10) 35pts4th Tony McDonough (14) 34ptsDiv B (15+)1st Garry George (25) 38pts2nd Michael Jeffreys (17) 37pts3rd David Davies (24) 29pts4th Bob Lindborg (19) 29ptsFriday, Feb. 11, Khao Kheow – StablefordFifty-five Outbackers travelled to Khao Kheow to take on the C and A courses; unfortunately it appeared that the rest of Thailand were there also, as there was a shortage of carts and caddies, but thankfully the staff finally found enough caddies and those Outbackers with single carts, generously shared, so that all were accommodated.The course itself was in great condition with the greens a little slower than last week and it was a good test off the real yellow tees again at last, after a few weeks with the tees well forward.The course again was the winner with the best score of the day being 37 points, coming from Sid Ottaway, who said that everything went well for him out there today and usually it doesn’t. So he won Div D quite convincingly as the second placed man, Gus George had 31.The Irish guys finally came good with Vin Connellan taking Div A on 36 points, ahead of the day’s organiser, Steve Mann with 35, and Peter Ennis back in third on 34. Div B was won by Murray Hart on 36 points after a count-back with Doug Campbell; and Colin Oliver, nearing the end of his stay here, finished in style to win Div C with 33 points, one in front of the local course specialist, Sugar Ray, on 32.There were eight ‘2’s from Steve Plant, Doug Douglas, Tony McDonough, John Kendall and two each to playing partners, Doug Campbell and Jan Thorsberg on the same two Par ‘3’s.Div A (0-12)1st Vin Connellan (12) 36pts2nd Steve Mann (8) 35pts3rd Peter Ennis (12) 34pts4th James Brackett (8) 34ptsDiv B (13-15)1st Murray Hart (13) 36pts2nd Doug Campbell (15) 36pts3rd Jum Karagit (14) 34pts4th Steven Budrys (14) 33ptsDiv C (16-19)1st Colin Oliver (18) 33pts2nd Sugar Ray Handford (16) 32pts3rd Rick Forrest (19) 31pts4th Doug Douglas (19) 30ptsDiv D (20+)1st Sid Ottaway (23) 37pts2nd Garry George (25) 31pts3rd Eldridge Suggs (20) 29pts4th John Stafford (20) 29ptsNote: The Outback Golf Bar is situated about 6km from Sukhumvit Road along Soi Siam Country.

PSC golf from The Outback Golf BarMonday, Feb. 7, Burapha – StablefordForty Outbackers at Burapha today, with a two-tee start on the C and D loops, we had an early start but poor old Roy Studds and his caddy were getting dizzy going from the first on C then to the first on D, and then back again then back to D then back again to C…. sorry Roy.

The direction came during arguments on the bail pleas of five corporate executives, who along with others, were arrested in connection with the case, with the court asking the police as to how it has arrested the accused without ascertaining whether the documents were classified or not.During the hearing, an Assistant Commissioner of Police (ACP) of Crime Branch told the court that they were yet to receive a report from the Ministry on its query if the documents allegedly leaked were classified or confidential. “It is directed that the report (of MoPNG) be submitted in three days. Put up for further hearing on April 10,” Additional Sessions Judge Raj Kapoor said. Also Read – Company director arrested for swindling Rs 345 croreThe court also asked the investigating officer (IO) to show the letter they had written to the MoPNG for evaluation and analysis to specify whether the documents allegedly leaked were confidential and classified or were routine papers.During the hearing, the court asked the IO about the nature of documents recovered from the accused and whether these were classified. Responding to this, the IO said “the documents recovered from the accused are being verified as of now and the ministry is analysing and evaluating the documents, but Crime Branch have not yet received any reply from them.” Also Read – Man who cheated 20 women on matrimonial websites arrestedNot satisfied with the IO’s reply, the judge said, “You have not charged the accused under the Official Secrets Act (OSA) till now.
