Who Started This “Terrorist” War? When?

After the latest tragedy in Paris, the outpouring of heartfelt sympathy from ordinary human beings and cynical posturing from political leadership, it is time for people to stop, think and take democratic action before it gets much worse. And in the short run it will get worse.

The Islamic State is a reaction to what the west has been doing to the arab-Muslim world for longer than any of us have been around, even longer than “decades” in time-meaningless media speech.

After the First World War destroyed the Ottoman Empire and Europe began creating national boundaries in the arab-Muslim world having more to do with western real estate economics than native populations wishes, the seeds were planted for the present destruction of those Middle Eastern nations and the reaction to it by Islamic fundamentalism. But western intrusion began long before then, which is why some Islamic Jihadist writings of the present refer to their enemies as “crusader-Zionists”, linking political economic cultures of supposedly different eras and religious beliefs but really as different as the two sides of a coin to the people they have dominated for far too long.

To hear the master race of self-chosen people who have ruled the world from the time of past crusades to present Israel, theirs was and is a project to civilize and democratize those with no idea how to conduct themselves as an advanced population of organized freedom loving people. Of course it may have to murder hundreds of thousands, even millions, in the process of civilizing these unfortunates, especially if they not only fail to obey their dominators but even insist on making rules for themselves, but mass murders and the destruction of secular governments are simply part of the process of building democracy and respect for life. Got that?

It should be common knowledge by now that the origins of Islamic fundamentalist warrior groups had to do with financing and training by the USA, its Arab fascist allies and its NATO lap dogs. The jihadists were originally employed to fight against the Soviets in Afghanistan, after they had come to the aid of a secular regime the west worked to destroy because it was seen as too friendly to the Russians, who were their next-door neighbors. If you believe you are a master race of self-chosen people, brainpower takes a back seat to killing power. When that bloody war ended with the soviets out and the fundamentalists in power, the westerners watched in blissful ignorance as a former secularly ruled nation became overtly religiously orthodox and where, among other radical changes, women once of the professional educated class were returned to servitude and obedience to men, covering themselves in public in dress codes that could seem puritanical to westerners but were at least partly enforced to keep them from looking like cheap tramps, which was how islamic fundamentalists saw many western women.

What bungling supremacist policy makers also failed to notice was that the jihadists didn’t just hate communists; they hated the entire materialist west, wanted to rid themselves of all its social contamination, and go their own way. Oops.

After 911, the terror attack that provoked the mindless assault on the people and nations of the Middle East that continues today, the first stage of the bigger bloodbath started in Afghanistan. Easily blamed, after the fact, on a president treated as a dunce by cowards – only Barbara Lee, of more than 500 “democratically elected representatives” in congress spoke against the action - it has continued to Iraq, Libya, Yemen, Syria and of course has seen retaliation in the USA, Europe and other points west.

The Islamic State, treated by western consciousness control as a bunch of bloody killers bent on replacing the commercial televised mayhem of wrestling, kick boxing and Fox News with actual beheadings, is, whether slandered and cheapened by being called self proclaimed or so-called, a state of Islamic people with territory, currency and trade policies, which wishes to have no connection to or relationship with the forces which have colonized, tormented and brutalized its people for so long. That their tactics are brutal and dedicated to frightening the west and creating chaotic tendencies is clear, and that they are and have been successful is equally clear. What is to be done?

Obviously, not having well meaning if silly debates over whether or not to take in helpless refugees who are fleeing bloodshed we play a major role in creating and sustaining. The biggest help we can extend Syrians escaping war is to stop making the war. The same is true for all the other nations and people we have dominated in the area and in whose affairs we have meddled by supporting oppressive dictatorial regimes which do our bidding and thus become acceptable butchers. We are presently informed – repeatedly, and by sources from the extreme right to what passes for a left in the USA – that the "horrendous Assad" is brutal and must be replaced and that is why we have helped if not created various groups in Syria to take up armed struggle against his government. Of course they now amount to nothing and foreign jihadists, from all over the arab world as well as europe, are the fighters threatening the Syrian regime, as once again the formidably armed but mentally crippled leadership of western nations sounds a collective “huh?” while it continues to destroy people and nations because, um, that’s what it does.

Thanks to the Russians awakening to potential disaster in their neighborhood and taking both military and diplomatic action to bring about peace talks to attempt solving the future leadership problem in Syria, there are signs of hope. Even Obama, who only looks peaceful by comparison to Killer Clinton and the idiot republicans, seems to see that America will lose, badly, if the warfare continues. But that is not nearly close enough to what really must be done.

The USA must get out of the empire business, end its warfare economic entrapment and stop slaughtering people to allow the minority corporate rich and their cowardly minority politicians to use other people’s lives and money to feel like macho women and men who rule the world. If we don’t take democratic action to stop them, we will pay a heavier price in future than we have paid in the past. And it won’t just be financial.

We need to get out of all the places in the middle east – and the rest of the world - where the people don’t want us, stop performing as Israel’s servant and insist they stop butchering Palestine by cutting off all financial and especially military aid until they do so, and only attempt to help others when they have truly democratic rule – so far evading us! – and ask for our help, and then only after we have seen to it that all our people have homes, health care and jobs. In our very near future, we’ll either have real democracy or unbelievable barbarism. What’s your choice?

Charlie Hebdo Massacre Reduced to a Footnote

Last night's horrifying bloodbath in Paris reminds us yet again of the urgency of a change in Western policy in the Middle East. Until and unless that happens - and it can't happen unless an aroused and informed public makes it happen - more massacres are inevitable.

ISIS has taken responsibility - proudly - for the attacks that killed well over a hundred people out for Friday night fun, and promised more and worse to come. Before we get swept up in jingoist hysteria, let us recall that ISIS is not self-begotten, but emerged from the murderous chaos that followed the 2003 U.S. invasion of Iraq. Recall as well that the U.N.'s Humanitarian Coordinator Denis Halliday accused the U.S. of genocide in Iraq five years BEFORE that invasion as a result of the crippling sanctions imposed after the 1991 Gulf War. In other words, the West's systematic destruction of Iraq for an entire generation has given birth to a terrorist movement dedicated to killing as many Westerners as possible. Hideous? Yes. Surprising? No.

Not a single leader on the American scene has offered an intelligent policy response. Self-righteous posturing and threats of retaliation are the order of the day. France is planning bombing raids in Syria, which at least one of the terrorists involved in the Friday night massacres said was the motivation for the Paris attacks in the first place.

Mourning the dead doesn't mean much if we immediately reinforce the policies that led to their deaths. Have we not had enough of slaughter? Why do we not see on TV the effects of the West's constant military interventions in the Middle East? If we regularly saw the tortured, maimed and killed on our TV screens, we would be in a better position to judge events like the hideous attacks in Paris on Friday night. These were clearly revenge attacks, as they have no military significance whatsoever. Why treat them as unprovoked attacks?

And let's stop with the idiotic questions like, "Can a similar attack happen in the U.S.?" Of course it can. Anybody remember 911? The grievances that provoked that appalling attack are still in play, as nothing was done about them. (See post for May 1, 2011 "Osama Bin Laden: The Real Story" for a review.)

ISIS would not exist were it not for the West's (especially the U.S.'s - the European powers follow Washington's lead) constant interventions in the Middle East. So why are we there? To make sure Israel can continue to colonize Arab land? What legitimate U.S. interest is there in perpetuating that? To topple Bashar al Assad in Syria? He is the legitimate leader of Syria; what U.S. interest is there in overthrowing him, which would make ISIS even more powerful? To "defend" against Iran and Putin? Iran is more influential than ever thanks to our destruction of the Iraqi state, and Putin is an avowed and active enemy of ISIS. What U.S. interest is there in opposing either of them?

Until U.S. leaders stop bad-mouthing Assad, Putin, and the mullahs in Iran, we will know that they are not serious about reducing the threat of terrorist violence. For it is the overweening arrogance of foreigners attempting to govern peoples over whom they have no legitimate authority that has bred the violence these leaders pretend to abhor in the first place.

British activist and author Tariq Ali has offered the following sensible advice on how to end the terrorist nightmare emanating from Syria, Iraq and Afghanistan: "There are three important pre-requisites to re-stabilizing the region: end of Western support to the extended Saudi royal family (the source of extremist Islamic sects); end of all Western intervention in the region; a single Israeli/Palestinian state with equal rights for all its citizens."

This agenda has no traction in Washington. Serious advocates of peace need to learn how to give it some.

Veterans Day Hypocrisy: Enough Already

The annual experience of pontificating politicians and their media stenographers extolling the virtues of the brave, heroic, selfless and dedicated heroes these draft dodgers and service avoiders laud for doing what they would never dream of doing is becoming ever more sickening. Especially as so many veterans are reduced to poverty, unemployment, living in their cars or on the street or wasting away in VA hospitals where budget cuts administered by free market fanatics of the right, center and what passes for a liberal left strengthen market forces at the expense of these quickly forgotten “patriots” who make life safe for minority private profiteers while propagandized into thinking they perform for a fictional majority: The People. Sure. 

When was the last time a truly representative voice of a majority of that group actually chose to busy itself with bombing, burning, shooting and stabbing people thousands of miles away based on a real, materially experienced threat that they faced and took action to deal with? Of course you all remember it was the day after Santa Claus brought the Easter bunny to dinner after the Tooth Fairy performed their first holy communion bar mitzvah.

And in truth, the overwhelming majority of service people in all branches of the military in all the wars they are falsely lauded for performing as front line killers for those who make the wars and lie them into fighting them, are no more or less than workers earning their daily bread. Some truly join innocently believing they are serving their country and warding off vicious enemies bent on savaging us in our beds, but far more do so because they need jobs, can find no other and see a possible chance for learning a trade or even getting into higher education when they leave the service. A small minority actually engage an enemy while a majority perform the daily tasks of maintaining a multi billion dollar mechanized monstrosity that needs drivers, clerks, craftspeople, cooks, repair workers and hosts of others to serve as foundation for the structure of a vast murder machine. And in many cases, they are even safer in doing so than the average american worker at a bank, school, shopping mall, junk food counter or factory-what few remain in the USA - since they do not have to face the highway wars that millions of Americans are involved in every day in seeking wages for survival.

 We kill more than 500 people every week in the traffic horror that we call a private transportation system and if  - and when ? - that many military people were killed we’d have as massive an anti-war movement such as this nation has ever seen. We can only hope it doesn’t take that to bring us to our senses and avoid the whole degenerate celebration by ending war and thereby never sending people to kill others and risk their own murders in doing so, all at alleged protection of the very market forces that put them in such danger in the first place.

We need a democratic force to put a stop to all manner of hypocritical posturing by political pimps for profit seeking that is at the root of the most dreadful threat facing humanity. What some call climate change and opponents label as climate denial is really capitalism denial as the major problem that must be solved in order to assure a future for the human race. A stop to war making and its satanic religious beatification through hypocrisy like this annual feast of ghouls who profit in billions from mass murder would be an important step in the direction of such a peaceful future.

Look Out Democrats: You Don't Have An Answer To This

"I will say the politics of it (illegal immigration) will be (sic) very, very different if a bunch of lawyers or bankers were crossing the Rio Grande. Or if a bunch of people with journalism degrees were coming over and driving down the wages in the press. Then we would see stories about the economic calamity that is befalling our nation. And, I will say for those of us who believe people 'ought to come to this country legally, and we should enforce the law,' we're tired of being told it's anti-immigrant. It's offensive."

What About The Trans Species Minority?

With all the current attention given to people who are born one sex but feel, think, act and wish to be known as another, an even smaller group of people have been forgotten. If they were ever known of in the first place.

The subject of Trans-Species people was brought to the attention of Middle America when a man who identifies as a raccoon and belongs to a group trying to get recognition from society complained about being denied the food service he needs at mid-western chic-a-taco-pizza-burger-chip-crab-fries facilities.

“I need to burrow for grubs as often as I eat regular food and these places provide no opportunity for people like me to follow my natural bodily instincts to answer my tran species needs” said a man who refused to give his name but claimed he and others in his group choose to be addressed as “coons”. When advised that could be called hate speech since it was once used as a derogatory term for people with more color than people with no color, he said “Things change and america and the world needs to be open to realize that there are many among us, not just us coons but folks like trans male donkeys who call themselves "assholes", trans female cats who like to be called "pussies" and trans female dogs who answer to "bitches" and many others among our community who have needs and desires and the right to be acknowledged and addressed by the names we choose.”

The anonymous man said he always knew he was different as a child, at first thinking he was a dog until his family bought a cat but even then he was not sure. “When I saw a raccoon in our garden and looked into its eyes I felt a bond and an understanding that has taken me on a path to find my true self in spending time in trees, raiding garbage cans and especially burrowing into the earth in search of delicious grubs. This is who I am and what I am and no psychiatrist, neurosurgeon, bank teller or UPS driver can change that.”

Officials at the anonymous town in the anonymous state were trying to measure popular consciousness, social morality, public need and market forces in coming to a decision in how to deal with these transpecies people either by catering to their needs or, as in the case of most powerless minorities without dollars , celebrity clout or emotionally appealing personal dramas, just telling them to drop fucking dead.

"Even war has rules," said Doctors Without Borders head Dr. Joanne Liu

That's the problem, the acceptance of such degeneracy as representing something called civilization. How about rules of rape? Rules of child molesting?  Or worst of all for some people, rules of animal cruelty? 

Only commit rape between the hours of nine and five, wear white gloves, do not punch the face of the victim but only the body, and only if absolutely necessary. Sound good?

Only molest a child age twelve or above and then only if the child is dressed provocatively but refuses to comply with adult orders to dress appropriately. Sound okay?

Only beat a dog or cat to death if the animal vomits on your rug, craps on your linoleum or bites or scratches a guest. Okay?

If not, why and how can we go on accepting the filthy, stupid, depraved idea that it's perfectly alright to blow people's brains out, to rip their bodies limb from limb, to burn them to death, to shoot, stab, beat and otherwise end their lives anonymously and abruptly, if we're involved in a war - unless! - they are in a hospital or church-synagogue-mosque or other place of worship. Sensible, thoughtful and humane, if you dine on gourmet feces and are degenerate enough to observe the rules of rape, molestation and worse.

If the people murdered at the hospital had been blown to bits at some other location, they would have suffered death known only to their next of kin, loved ones and friends, like the hundreds of thousands we have murdered in the most recent mass destruction in the middle east. Let's not overload our brains with too much history and deal in hundreds of millions for all wars, since we are innumerate enough as it is and having a difficult enough time even considering the madness of these "rules" spoken of by the good doctor. I mean, hey, let's not go too far with this mass murder thing; we've got to have some control over why, how and most especially where we commit these murders. Right? Thoughtful, formally educated, rules for war making humanitarians? 

Be nice and only blow up buildings other than hospitals, like buildings where people are having dinner before their bloody remains become part of the soup, or where people are having a wedding celebration without having studied the "rules of war" that don't stop sanctioned-by-governmental-degeneracy warriors from dismembering them. And eventually military targets like hospitals, churches, mosques and synagogues where people and other warlike enemies try to hide, not understanding that the  "rules of war" would then make them legitimate targets?

 It isn't only the doctor who needs to confront this perversion of soul, spirit and matter that we all sanction, rationalize and perform as war. It is mass murder and if it is okay to have millions slaughtered while we go to work, school, shopping or walk our dogs, then there should be no empty sanctimonious garbage about individuals having guns representing a special sickness suffered only by them. Gun control? We need massive consciousness change to end the bloody foreign policy that is an extension of our domestic madness.

We are avoiding many serious problems every day, problems that affect all of humanity, but the worst of all is avoidance of this subject and the continued rationalization of it as something somehow natural, necessary to all of us, and with special  "rules".  Climate change, capitalism, drought, famine, disease and more will not be a problem if and when our legal “rules of war” come home to destroy us, whether said rules of degeneracy are observed or broken by the warriors from within or without our constitutional house of perversion.

Years Ahead of His Time?

Why, I can smile, and murder whiles I smile,
And cry ‘Content’ to that which grieves my heart
And wet my cheeks with artificial tears,
And frame my face to all occasions.
-- Gloucester, ‘‘Henry VI’’-Shakespeare
