.. either stops the filthy lies - or fails the test
Preamble: This is not your 'usual' anti-US tirade; it explores possible "changes we could believe in."
I keep shrieking, Q: "Where are the adults??!"
A: Not overweight and vegetating in front of flat/wide-screen TVs, nor iPod-wanting green-sleeves agitating in the streets of Tehran.
'Normal' disclaimer: all, as usual and of course IMHO.
The real adults include those in power in Beijing, Moscow & Tehran. Throw in a few in South America; yes to Chavez & his ilk, say.
The US has seemingly gone out of its way to create enemies; one real problem is their capitalist model, which insists on ripping-off the absolute maximum 'profit,' see "economic rent," see "Economic Hit Man." The actual, criminal problem with their model is that they've taken it beyond profit into outright, massive theft. The other factor is their out-of-control military; IF one's only tool is a hammer THEN all problems look like nails. IF one's only tool is a rabid military THEN all solutions are attempted by shooting, bombing etc., i.e. destruction, desolation and illegal killing. Hence 'murder for spoil.'
First and foremost, Palestine was devastated; keywords "Zionist illegal invasion and brutal 61+ bloody year long occupation." This was some hideous creature's 'original sin;' I cannot concieve how it could ever have been carried out (it should never have happened), let alone justified (it simply can't be). Most of it's already been said and reiterated in these pages - but the Nakba can never be forgotten, nor forgiven. The only 'way out' there, is to restore all of Palestine to its pre-'47/8 legal owner/occupiers. Justice demands nothing less. I was not around to see how much the US & UK contributed to the original gross injustice, but it is now almost exclusively the US that enables the Z's murdering, thieving, ethnic-cleansing & genocidal occupation to continue.
Iran was devastated; keywords "CIA & deposed Iranian leader, Mossadegh."
South America was devastated; keywords "CIA instigated Death Squads."
Russia was devastated; keywords "Yeltsin, privatisation, NATO encroachment."
Afghanistan's devastation is on-going; lying keywords "Fight them over there!" Real keywords 'threaten Asia, pipeline.'
Iraq's 2nd devastation (after Albright's ½mio dead kids) is pretty-well complete; (B, B & H's) lying keywords "We will disarm him!" My keywords: 'murder for oil.'
China is well on the way to being devastated; keywords "off-shoring (of jobs and pollution), the US$ rip-off."
Pakistan's devastation is only beginning; keywords "Get Pakistan's nukes!" Real keywords 'more threatening Asia, more pipelines.'
Iran's 2nd devastation is being actively planned; keywords "All options!" Real keywords: 'more murder for oil.'
(Q1: Any more? Q2: Why do you ask? Q3: Isn't the above enough to condemn them with, and that totally, utterly, terminally?)
Intermezzo #1: I have left some disasters off; (starting only from WW2), the double A-bombing war crimes, Korea (looong ago, perhaps 'novel' because originally thought of as a 'oncer'), then Vietnam, Cambodia (total US failure). Nixon's going off gold was a critical step; 'recruiting' S.Arabia, splitting the Arabs and introducing petro-$s.
Intermezzo #2: Of course, in 2nd place in current woes, the GFC and over-all 1st place and 'real biggie,' the threatening excess-CO2 caused climate catastrophe. If the latter gets as bad as feared, it'll not just be goodnight, but goodbye.
Intermezzo #3: I mentioned "changes we could believe in;" we have seen the devastation wrought by the Zs over 61+ years, and the US for much longer, listed above are some their many crimes. The depredations are driven by greed, and filthily lied about. The liars know they're lying, and the corrupt & venal MSM conduits the lies - but worse, they criminalize themselves by actively assisting. (Boo! Hiss!) The first sign of improvement, certainly a 'change we could believe in' would be to see the lies stop, then the US&Zs begin rolling back their injustices; i.e. we'll know that good changes are on the way when the lies start to dry up.
Fazit: So, now we have the great Nobel Peace Prize winner, Ramb-O-Bama.
Q: Did they award it to encourage 'more of the same?'
A1: IF so, THEN good night.
A2: IF not, THEN hope.
PS We will soon know. Cancelling the 1st strike capability aimed at Russia was a hopeful sign; reversing the US press into Asia is a must, as is stopping the demonisation of Iran, and rolling-back the Zs.
PPS Whereas we desperately need hope, depending on it is poor strategy; there's still a vital requirement to keep working on stopping the horrid, murdering-to-thieve US&Zs.
lies (peace vs. eternal war)
