Friday, September 21, 2018 (PW) — Lion, Leopard and Hyena in a cage is what I envision of country X(name withheld for security reasons), when every soul that was part of peace ‘harvesting’ settle in the aforementioned country.

For your information and your attention, I am no enemy of peace nor development. But truth, pure truth without fear or favor must be told.

If you’re not seeing any problem in the aforementioned cage then you’re one.

Lions are what are called “top level predators” and are not preyed on by other animals and you know who the lions are.

However, lions have numerous enemies including elephants, buffalo, hyena, hippos, crocodiles, apes and humans who must attack and you know what would follow.

Hyenas are the big rivals and I don’t need to tell you who they are. A lion is of course far stronger than a hyena but a hyena clan contains far more animals than a lion pride so they are well matched.

Leopards occasionally succeed in killing lion cubs though that is rare and poisonous snakes are also a danger to cubs.

Based on the above analysis, it’s crystal clear installing peace in the antecedent cage is tantamount to bringing cat and rat to dine at the same table.

Meaning a scuffle is the best we could possibly expect in that cage unless we stuck our expectations on the miracle that recently occurred in Australia that one of such might happen in country X.

Anyway, all the best!
