Amazon founder Jeff Bezos was plucked from his cruise ship and flown back to the U.S. over a kidney stone attack.

The Washington Post owner was rescued by an Ecuadorian Navy helicopter from the Galápagos and taken to his private jet on Baltra Island on New Year’s Day, according to local newspapers. No surgery was required and he’s feeling well, according to Amazon’s vice president of public relations Drew Herder.

When asked for a comment, Bezos replied by email, “Galápagos: five stars. Kidney stones: zero stars.”

Everything can be a weapon to hurt anybody. 

Guns are just a tool, not the root of problem. 

Evil characters are the cause why people need guns to terminate the trouble makers. 

So if all want a peace without the hard ways then together all people have to stop all evil characters or bad habits and repair the systems. 


Education polite manners & good behaviours can help people to do a true moral as the soft way. Prison & jail can educate them and give a chance for their better futures. Everybody will be dead someday. Let the evil persons have their death naturally. 


So the gun & weapon industries can be on the right direction again just for empowering military strength Not to make a warfare business. 


The weapons for a mass destruction must be authorized together supported by United Nations fund and only can be operated under United Nations restriction to secure a good human world. 


For an example to destroy terrorist's nests in indonesia & arabian lands from the oceans. 

All nations are united to destroy islam the terrorist's religion, gladly!
