I contend the Arab Spring was a deliberate policy action undertaken by USG to be rid of established dictators in the region, allowing the Muslim Horde to step into power and control State assets, militaries, natural resources, et cetera.
The opening paragraph demonstrates the type of people that have been allowed power as a result…and Washington’s response to the taking of hostages and demands for more foreign aid reflect the disposition of our Masters.
Enemies of Liberty need Sparklies to keep your attention away from their true mischief.
Watch the Other Hand continues to be the meme for 2012.
Should we be attacked by a hostile state, then it’s total war until the threat is gone. Otherwise, it’s not a fight worth fighting. I am applying my MHG logic here. If failure is not an option, win. If failure is a livable option, do not fight.
“Failure”, that is, a nuclear Iran, clearly is an option. Why do I say this? We watched idly as North Korea screamed for attention over its nukes. Really, is a nuclear North Korea less dangerous than a nuclear Iran?
Why is Israel more valuable to us as an ally than South Korea? Why is it allowable for South Korea’s aggressive neighbor to have nukes, but not Israel’s? What is Israel to the US, other than a place to sink billions of dollars in “foreign aid”, stolen from you and I?
I realize this post may make many of you uncomfortable, or even angry. So be it; it is truth as I see it.
A war with Iran and its unintended consequences in not in the interests of the united States, or their citizens.
It is, however, in the interest of the “US” national government, and their crony-capitalist bedfellows.
A war is exactly the type of band-aid solution the US government traditionally reaches for in desperation.
I live in a north Atlanta suburb. My house does very little in the realm of providing for me other than shelter and climate mediation. It is an “asset” that at this point is nothing but a drain – meaning aside from the aforementioned points. It takes, and it takes a lot.
I have a small garden that offsets a very small percentage of our nutritional requirements. Aside from that, water is expensive – it’s available from a source other than the tap, but far away.
One can only store so much food, though. You can get to 6 months or a year pretty quick if you listen to Jack Spirko, but you will eventually run out and you will have to hunt, trap, fish, or grow. Simple as that.
I can defend & deny what I have with a good level of confidence, but that too eventually runs out.
At this point it does indeed come down to the tribe (ala Global Guerrillas) and your community.
