I mean if you really want to reach people. Use facebook. Believe me if you think people don’t want to read it, you’ve misread our times. If you think your friends and family aren’t your market? Go find the others.
I am seeing calls to war against ISIS. If I am wrong tell me. Did we not help dispose Asad providing them a home, destabilize Iraq providing them a base, and sell arms to all different kinds of rebel factions that in turn sold or lost them to ISIS, finally helping to arm them as well?
Did not America help create Al Qaeda by empowering Bin laden to resist Russian involvement in Afghanistan?
Did we not go to war in Iraq on a false claim of nukes while hijacking the hype of 911 to do it?
Does the arms industry not benefit the most off of our hate crimes and political gun debates? Does the military industrial complex not make the money off of all the war? Isn’t the truth of a war usually over resources and positioning? Isn’t war’s propsal always cloaked in an opportunistic emotional event?
If a person think mass shootings and bombings are enough to take this great nation to war you miss what it means to be truly powerful. Being truly powerful is being able to take the hit and and ignore it and ignore other people for calling you weak for allowing the injustice to happen without retaliation.
America is not desperate. I won’t promote a full scale war ever again when we can’t manage our Proxy wars with wisdom. Our full out wars have been full of deception. You know we guarded Poppy fields (heroin trade) with American soldiers in Afghanistan? Did you know the US CIA is known for gathering funding for globalization through selling drugs?
Have you seen how many people have died in service or opposition to the Clinton family who’s deaths have been labeled suicide? You trusted the integrity of the Bush Family? I saw them help perform gross magic on all of us!
If you don’t think America will murder people and start conflicts to secure natural resources and make western families richer then you’ve either forfeited your interest or have not been exposed to all the dirt that is really out there. It’s so dirty! No big deal. But clean we are not.
Nations are mafias. They should be respected as mafias. Just cause one mafia has better laws than another doesn’t mean they are not mafias. And we are asked and raised to have national pride for our dog collars? We are asked to celebrate a forfeited personal sovereignty while we, in hopes of safer travels, entrusted it to a nation?
I’m not going to lie, I have a little pride. I like where I am. America has very decent laws where it counts. It gives me the most leverage to say things like this, that challenge the concept of America itself.
I think it’s time to start thinking empathetically and globally. We have to do surgery when lopping off limbs is unacceptable and with the right leaders (or doctors), unnecessary.
If America needs to declare war on ISIS then so be it. But it better not be a war of the past. It better be a war of the future. With clear goals and based on non violent, defensive tactics. Something that satisfies this desire of mine. We don’t want another Iraq. Do you know how awful the destruction of a nations infrastructure is? We don’t want that ever again. The world cannot afford Diaspora. Just look at the horror there is now and you dare to drum for more based on emotional impulse? Where is my stick? You did a good job. You get knighted for putting pressure on the issue. But man the style is reckless and dangerous and is unworthy of the challenge of the task.
If we go to war with ISIS we may very well have to go to war with Saudi Arabia. Are they not already the entombment of Sharia? Is it Sharia we should hate? Or is it the spirit of aggression stirring in guts of Syria? Saudis have been funding terrorism for a long time but doing nothing out in the open but accepting our money and giving us our cheap oil and requiring others to buy their oil in US dollars. Sounds like a friend. I am sure they don’t want to be an Iraq, or a Syria. They have a beautiful country.
We are the free world. We should act like this kind of power enables us to place the double edged sword of death on the anvil. These are the times of banging. Strike while the iron is hot! bang bang.
