Women most frowned upon in World News of 2011

This attempts to report about women who graced and became objects of world news in 2011. These women were in the news because of what they were, their deeds, actions and consequences and news reports, stories and articles about them were scooped as they happened in world news syndicates, television and radio networks and other media agencies and news bureaus hence, they were most frowned upon. These women are as follows:
Leila Trabelsi of Tunisia, wife of ousted Tunisian Dictator Ben Ali. As early January 19, 2011, Hannah Betts wrote a news report about her entitled “Leila Trabelsi:of the Arab world”. She was referred to as the latest “Queen of Carthage” and the first lady of Tunisia who had robbed the Bank of Tunisia, stashed and fled with 35 million sterling worth of gold reserves equivalent to one-and-a-half tons of ingots. In another news report she was referred to as the “First Lady who robbed her nation outwardly served her people honorably but, inwardly robbed her nation's possessions hence, her family despised by Tunisia. Tunisians pinned more anger and rancor on her than on her husband and that, they preferred she would not live with Ben Ali and do not return home to Tunisia”. It was really a disgrace on her person, family, kins, people and nation that she allowed greed ate and consumed her humanity, soul and spirit and languish in eternal shame before men and her Maker.
Gloria Macapagal Arroyo made it to 2011 headlines of local, national and even international news after having been accused of six (6} plunder cases earlier and recently an “Electoral Sabotage” case filed on November 18, 2011 which was perceived long overdue but, put the hook on her now being under hospital arrest due to her physical condition. The unsatiated greed for money during her six year term of office as president with heavily questioned legitimacy due to gross election fraud in 2004 Presidential election that made her handily grabbed a hasty nasty victory over opponent late Fernando Poe Jr (FPJ}.
She enjoyed Her Excellency in an allegedly stolen power for six years but now, she lowly languishes in solitary pains physically, emotionally and probably spiritually in a hospital prison cell. Indeed, this is a frowned upon and utmost condition of humiliation before men and God. There is a law in physics that “for every action there is an equal and opposite reaction” which is equated to “Pay for whatever you have done wrong”. The condition where Mrs. Gloria Arroyo lives during these days, be it Divinely inflicted and imposed by law of man is suggestive that she has erred and must face squarely the consequences of her actions and deeds.
The profile she assumed before she became an object of local, national and international news reports, stories and articles made her a personality worth frowning upon in 2011. However, this may not be a final assessment but a great defaming damage has already been imprinted on her face and became “faceless” before the eyes of men and society. Will she be acquitted of her alleged wrongdoings in the court of law of men? Will she be sentenced for the wrongs she committed against men and God? Let everyone follow through in order to behold the light after passing through a long and very dark tunnel.
The impacts of these two high profile women in world news of 2011 are undoubtedly great among women of power and influence in any parts of the world. However, the great impacts are not as role models and exemplars of goodness and goodwill but, they are being looked upon as deterrents to prevent others to do what they have done to their peoples and nations. The lessons are clear and may their contemporaries in the world take heed of their plights and predicaments.
