After reading Stuart’s blog (see ‘Stuart’ in the required reading section) I began to pay attention to the infotainment cycle again. I have been out of the loop for a while; not paying much attention to talk radio or talking head shows on infotainment television. There seems to be quite a bit of talk about should or shouldn’t we have ‘talks’ with our enemies.
There are always talks going on with our enemies. Every President has done this. The situation that most people don’t seem to understand is that for despots to have a sit down with the President of the United States of America lifts their stature and is then used in their propaganda. The enemy that I am specifically referring to is the leader of Iran, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad. There have been talks going on with Iran, behind the scenes, for quite a while now. This is no secret, it just doesn’t get discussed on tv, so most people don’t believe its happening. If tv doesn’t tell you, then it’s not true, right?
There is a fundamental difference between our society and Islamic culture in the Middle East that most people never consider. The appearance of strength and power count for much more with them than with us on a day to day schedule; or with the ‘common man’. Bush’s minions are keeping contact going between the two nations. The President himself will not meet in person with Ahmadinejad because he knows what will happen. The Iranian leader will tout their meeting to his followers, and indeed, to the entire Islamic world, as Bush groveling before him. This has been done before by other leaders and will always be done.
The Islamic fundamentalists believe in the last Imam. Google that and read about it, it’s worth an entire series of blogs to explain. In a nutshell…. They believe that a religious leader will rise out of a well in Iran, they have identified the well and built a mosque and palace around it for the Imam. The Imam will then lead the Islamic people through the ‘mother of all battles’, or Armageddon, to destroy Israel and begin the downfall of western culture, ushering in an era of Islamic domination of the world. Now, stop at this point, go back, and read that sentence several times. Let that sink in. There are hundreds of factions of extremists all around the world that hate our society for whatever the reason and would love to see it fall. They have joined forces with each other or are ‘taking a page from their book’ and attempting to act on this idea. There is nothing hidden here, through political correctness we ourselves have hidden the truth. If a person comes up to you and tells you that they don't like you and want to kill you, then try to kill you, what are you going to do? As a society what we are doing is trying to figure out why they hate us, then trying to figure out how we can help them 'get over' this little blip in their psyche, give them a societal dose of Ritalin as it were. Political correctness and pop psych nonsense are helping to bring these things about in a very quick fashion and we don't even see it happening.
There are so many examples of this, and it is sad that people aren’t aware of them. Koran’s found at the Mexican-American border, thwarted attacks in Seattle, Washington DC, and Chicago, rings of terrorists broken apart or taken out all over the world. From North Africa to the Pacific Rim, the Special Forces of our nations military have never been busier, just ask them… they will tell you.
It simply does not matter who the President is come the next election cycle. There are hours of ideology that can be debated on both sides, but again, this does not matter. There is a real struggle taking place around this world for control, or perceived control. The name of the person sitting behind that desk in the Oval Office will not matter to the people that want to bring about the downfall of our society. They do not care whether it’s a democrat or republican, liberal or conservative, man or woman; black or white, to them dead is dead. They want us all to die, or follow their law, that’s it, Simple enough. They follow the path taught to them by modern society. They had regular meetings with Nazi leaders during that time in history. They know how to play on emotions, they have stated in their own words, found in training materials, to use the media to their advantage. In Lebanon, during the Israeli invasion, they placed bodies in rubble, then called in the media to take pictures, and then would place the bodies back in storage and wait for the next group of reporters. The media people saw them doing this, but not many reported it, until someone smuggled out a video of them doing it. Why? Anti-Semitism, plain and simple. There are no dark secrets here, this is all cut and dry, right in your face. People don’t like Israel for many reasons, personally I don’t care about any of it. My motivation is as simple as theirs, want to kill me? Then I shall kill you first.
Sure, it goes without saying, there are no guiltless parties here. The United States has done things that are wrong or stupid, just as all nations have. But there will come a time when this country will begin to turn into a third world nation, and I feel that time is at last at hand. What are you willing to do about it? Appease them or destroy them?
It’s all perception of power, gaining power, and having control over the dumb masses. There are several points in history that can be referred to as examples of everything; none of this interests me. Naturally, we are doomed to repeat history, we never learn from the past. Discussing or arguing over semantics is pointless. You know what they want. You know that they are working towards it. Are we going to attempt to put an end to it? Or are we going to bury our heads in the sand and continue to be more interested in American Idol?
