Everyone in the world now is concered with the war between America and Iraq.最近的这场战争吸引了世界的目光。我们很遗憾的是看到很多无辜的平民在战争当中不幸丧生！Today, we have two sentences concerned with this war.
1) It is a horse of the same color.原来一码事！
That day when the war began, I came across one of my friends in the street. He said,"I have something important to tell you".而这个时候我也突然想起要把关于这场战争已经开始的的消息告诉给我的那位朋友，But do you know? We were just going to talk about the same story about that war!
所以在这个时候我们可以说：It is a horse of the same color.原来说的是一码事！This sentence is easy for us to remember. Now could you tell me the opposite phrase?与它相反的短语知道吗？我们可以说It is a horse of different color.或者说，It is a horse of another color.完全是另外一回事！
Teachers usually tell us that there is no shortcut in learning English well! But Andy thinks that to learn English needs one's firm determination and perseverance!那么这两种表述是不是一回事呢？请用刚才学习的句子回答！
2) America cast the first stone.美国最先带头攻击！
世界需要和平，人民需要幸福，可是偏偏美国却发起了战争。America cast the first stone.美国最先挑起了战争。在这个句子里面，看一下里面的cast这个动词，大家应该想到是“投掷”的意思。Here we can imagine like this: Two children quarrelled with each other. Then one of them picked up a stone and threw at the other. Of course, it would cause a fight. Similarly, If here it was America that cast the fist stone, it meant that she wanted a war.
Before we end today's program, i think of a song sang by Michael Jackson. The name of the song is "heal the world"! Now let's hold hand in hand and wish that we could have a peaceful world.让我们祝愿世界和平！Let's stop here for today! GOODBYE!
