FROM AN ARTICLE IN THE SARASOTA JOURNAL, THE HEADLINE...
"U.S. IS LOSING BATTLE FOR THE MIDDLE EAST"
AND THE DATE OF THAT ARTICLE?
APRIL 1, 1959...YES, 1959.
BUT GERE WE ARE ALMOST 60 YEARS LATER AND STILL INTERFERING IN THE MIDDLE EAST.
IT'S ONLY GETTING WORSE.
SEEMS ALMOST OVERNIGHT THE FIGHTING IN BOTH IRAQ AND AFGHANISTAN EXPLODED.
THE TALIBAN HAS LAUNCHED A DEDICATED OFFENSIVE TO TAKE BACK WHAT IT HAS LOST IN AFGHANISTAN, THE IRAQI ARMY RALLIED AND WENT ALL-IN TO RAMADI AGAINST THE ISLAMIC STATE.
THE U.N. URGENTLY REPORTED AN "OVERALL DETERIORATION IN SECURITY OF THE AFGHAN GOVERNMENT'S SECURITY" AND BRITAIN SENT IN MORE TROOPS TO 'SHORE THINGS UP'.
DON'T YOU FEEL IT, FOLKS?
SOMETHING IS BUILDING, HAS BUILT, IS TODAY PRESENT IN THE MIDDLE EAST THAT WILL NOT REST UNTIL THIS THING IS A DONE DEAL.
THE PEOPLE OF THE MIDDLE EAST HAVE BEEN HACKING AWAY AT EACH OTHER FOR THOUSANDS OF YEARS, AND THE TIME IS SIMPLY RIPE FOR THAT ONE MAJOR, END-ALL BATTLE.
THE REPORTER FROM UPI, BACK IN 1959, AS HE TRAVELED TO EVERY COUNTRY THERE, REALIZED THE IMPOSSIBILITY OF WESTERN CONTROL OVER THE MIDDLE EAST...IT'S TIME WE ALSO REALIZE THAT, BARRING A NUCLEAR ATTACK, WE'RE JUST SENDING TROOPS THERE TO DIE EVERY YEAR AND SPINNING OUR WHEELS ON A WIN.
RUSSIA, THE GREAT BEAR, TRIED AND FAILED TO CONQUER THE THIRD WORLD NATION OF AFGHANISTAN BY FORCE FOR YEARS.
FRANCE TRIED AND FAILED.
TODAY, AFTER BEING A MILITARY, BOOTS-ON-THE-GROUND PRESENCE IN THE MIDDLE EAST SINCE ABOUT 1990, TRUTH BE TOLD, AMERICA IS NOT ONE WEE WHIT CLOSER TO DEFEATING ANYBODY THERE THAN IT WAS WHEN IT BEGAN.
TRILLIONS OF DOLLARS, THOUSANDS OF OUR GOOD DEAD SOLDIERS, ALL LOST...AND FOR WHAT?
In 1981, a book was published by the title "The Middle East in World Politics" (Routledge , 218 pages).
The goal of Arab/Muslim nations in that time frame was to avoid being seen as in any way allied or aligned with Western nations.
It touted Egypt's success, in particular, to Egypt avoiding Western interference and domination, being "neutral", and holding to its independence from the U.S. and other non-Middle Eastern nations.
I find that laughable given what we now know of old Nasser.
He played the U.S. against Russia in ways we may never uncover.
But the little book got one thing right...absolute hell came to the Middle East as an indirect result of the COLD WAR. World War II was bad enough for the Middle East, but the Cold War would create havoc, chaos, and a resistance, against the U.S. in particular, that is ongoing and ever-growing to this day.
In the vast majority of Arab minds, it simply is them against the Western world.
We need not wonder if America CREATED this mindset, hoping Arabs would kill Arabs and clear the way for the West's occupation of those oil fields and "strategic military sites necessary against communism", because the undying hatred is real, it exists...that's all we need to know.
In the Middle East, America is not just "the Great Satan", it is the rallying point of all Arabia....whoever defeats America WILL be the KING.
EVERYBODY who adheres to Islam, and even some who don't, wants to kick America OUT of the Middle East.
Russia, too, is unwanted there, but not as much as America.
You see, boys and girls, the Middle East belongs SOLIDLY to Arabs.
WHY would Arabia want to be saddled and ridden into the ground by America?
America is the perpetual enemy.
This makes all aligned with America the enemy as well.
When America returned under Bush Junior, after Daddy Bush's 1990s fiasco in Iraq, and bombed and bombed, killing thousands (if not millions, as many accuse) of "innocent Iraqi civilians" (which WAS done, BTW) and reducing many parts of Iraq to rubble, the entire Middle East was watching.
With the evil Saddam gone, a man America had put in power itself, what would America do next?
Keep its promises to rebuild, to establish a 'better world' for Iraqi people?
America left behind not just rubble, not just dead bodies, not just chaos and confusion, not just power blackouts and missing Iraqi cultural treasures, but also depleted uranium which, to this day, is wiping out Iraqi citizens, causing birth defects, poisoning not just Iraq's environment but Iraqi MINDS against America.
EVERYTHING AMERICA DID IN IRAQ DAMNED AMERICA.
THE ENTIRE MIDDLE EAST WILL NEVER FORGET NOR FORGIVE.
THEY ALL WONDER IF THEY ARE THE NEXT TARGET.
IRAQ WAS THE "CRADLE OF CIVILIZATION", ANCIENT, ONCE REVERED, ONCE A GREAT POWER, AFTER ALL.
And then it was ruined, sacked, ravished, left to rot by America and its "allies"....whether or not at the behest of a few Arab nations who saw Saddam as a threat to THEIR oil economy and MONARCHIES.
Whether American-created, or not, "radical" groups like "Al Qaeda" and the newer "ISIS" became the retribution teams in how many Middle Eastern minds we may never realize.
As the saying goes, "Payback is a bitch!"
The oil-rich BULLIES of the Middle East were targeted as well as America, and so we come to the standoff, the CURRENT array of battle.
Which nations are aligned with America?
Those MUST be punished.
America MUST be punished.
It will simply drag on and on and on until "the radicals", the "jihadists" are satisfied that America, et al, have been defeated, kicked out, properly trounced and shamed and denied the oil fields that have, for decades, been the dream of oil-guzzling America.
It has not benefitted America that, up to the present administration, America was seen as ally of ISRAEL.
That America has now devoutly turned AGAINST Israel will NOT make a difference to those who saw the long-term alliance play out for decades there.
Perhaps only slightly more hated NOW than America, Israel, after all, is THE ANCIENT ENEMY.
As old Jimmy Carter wrote in his telling, Muslim butt-kissing book, "THE BLOOD OF ABRAHAM", the battle lines in the thousands-year-old conflict in the Middle East are TRULY drawn IN BLOOD.
IT IS A FIGHT TO THE FINISH.
EITHER ISRAEL DISAPPEARS FROM THE FACE OF PLANET EARTH OR EVERY OFFSPRING OF ABRAHAM'S EGYPTIAN CONCUBINE WHO PRODUCED ISHMAEL WILL HAVE TO DIE.
LIKE IT OR NOT, THIS HAS BEEN, WILL BE FOREVER, A "HOLY WAR".
LIKE IT OR NOT, SINCE THE RISE OF ISLAM EMPOWERED ISHMAEL'S DESCENDANTS, IT IS ABOUT "RELIGION".
THAT THE CURRENT AMERICAN REGIME FAILS TO PUBLICLY ACKNOWLEDGE THAT IS LUDICROUS.
While Obama's team has done just about everything it can for Iran except fly in American nuclear weapons to the Tehran airport, Iran hasn't yet the confidence to try Israel in an armed confrontation.
Whether or not they're thinking of Israel's determination to create nuclear holocaust in that area of the world, more or less "commit suicide" rather than fall to Islam, to Arab control again, is a moot point.
However, rest assured, Israel DOES have the "Masada Plan"...
Israel aside, EISENHOWER and his stupid moves in the Middle East pretty much sealed America's fate there way back in the late 1950s.
YES, America, EISENHOWER engaged in a "secret plan" to oust SYRIA'S leader way back then.
Syria has LONG been a key factor, a "MUST-CONTROL" for American interference in Arab affairs.
Good old TURKEY was in on that "EISENHOWER DOCTRINE" almost 60 years ago to overthrow Syria's leader then, as he was seen BY America as leaning too close to RUSSIA.
SOME THINGS NEVER CHANGE, HISTORY REPEATS, WE LEARN NOTHING FROM PAST MISTAKES.
In case you've forgotten, America intervened in Jordan in 1957 to support its illegitimate "king", and America went into Lebanon in 1958 to intervene there.
We've been a military presence ALL OVER the Middle East ever since the end of World War II...always preparing for World War III.
WELL, WORLD WAR III IS HERE!ALL THE "GREAT NATIONS" OF EARTH HAVE ALREADY "DECLARED WAR" ON THE ISLAMIC STATE, OLD "ISIS".
ALL WE NEED NOW IS THE FIRST NUCLEAR STRIKE.
WHO WILL DELIVER THAT?
RUSSIA READIES "DOOMSDAY PLANE" FOR SYRIA
CHINA? In War Against ISIS China Cooperating with Russia
ISIS ITSELF, WITH CAPTURED OR "BORROWED" NUKES?
Is ISIS trying to start World War III?
THE UNITED STATES? B61 NUCLEAR BOMB DEPLOYED BY U.S.
SOME ANALYSTS ARE RETHINKING THE OUTCOME IN THE MIDDLE EAST, CITING THE PULL OF ISIS, THE PROMISE TO THE ARAB WORLD OF A WORLD-DOMINATING ISLAMIC FORCE THAT NO NATION CAN STAND AGAINST.
SOME SAY IT IS ALTOGETHER POSSIBLE THAT THE ISLAMIC STATE IS ALREADY "UNSTOPPABLE".
If ISIS wins its wars in Iraq and Syria, Iraq will have effectively broken down into its three historical ethnic-religious regions: a majority-Shiite south, a Sunni-Kurdish north, and a Sunni-Arab west. An international conference to legally redraw boundaries would be unnecessary and in any case anathema, to the Islamic State and outside powers alike.
For Washington, Tehran, Ankara, and the Europeans, considering whether to intervene decisively in Syria and Iraq means thinking not only about who is willing to fight, but also about who is willing to pay to rebuild those societies if ISIS is crushed.
The re-establishment of institutions and infrastructure is a huge enough task, and it is but one aspect. The human dimensions are much greater: It is estimated that half of Syria's population is displaced, most of them living somewhere on the national territory, but with millions of others living in other countries - for example Turkey and Jordan, which also house large Palestinian refugee populations.
Adequate food, housing, and medical and energy services are necessary - not to mention getting hundreds of thousands of children back into schools that would need to be rebuilt. (Several months ago it was estimated that the Islamic State had about 600,000 children in its grasp, educating them in a Sharia-based curriculum.) How many exiled Syrians and Iraqis would return home from abroad is an open question.
Outside governments and international organizations might take on this burden for humanitarian and geopolitical reasons.
But rebuilding, indeed recreating nations in Syria and Iraq would be a monumental project at a monumental cost that would require a commitment of many years, if not decades, and these countries have their own priorities as well."
NO WESTERN NATION IS ECONOMICALLY SOUND ENOUGH TO TAKE ON REBUILDING ALL THE MIDDLE EAST COUNTRIES DEVASTATED BY THIS UNENDING WAR.
WE SEE THE RESULTS OF JUST THE SYRIAN REFUGEE CRISIS.
NO ONE IS LOOKING BACK AT IRAQ, OR AFGHANISTAN, OR NOTICING PAKISTAN MUCH.
AMERICA HAS SIMPLY SOILED ITS "NEST" IN THE MIDDLE EAST.
THE U.S. WASN'T WELCOME THERE AT ANY TIME IN HISTORY.
ISRAEL HAS NEVER BEEN WELCOME THERE.
RUSSIA HAS BEEN PLAYED LIKE A VIOLIN BY SEVERAL CRAFTY NATIONS, BUT IT IS ALSO AN UNWELCOME GUEST, AT BEST.
THE DAMNABLE, CURSED U.N. IS DOING EVERYTHING WITHIN ITS POWER TO GET ANY NATION, ALL NATIONS TO KNOCK ISRAEL OFF.ONLY THE TRULY BLIND WILL NOT SEE THE U.N. AGENDA IN THE MIDDLE EAST.
IT NEEDS "PEACE" IN THE REGION TO MAKE FULL USE OF ALL NATURAL RESOURCES AND TO CONTROL THOSE TO ITS OWN BENEFIT.
WITH ISRAEL OUT OF THE WAY, THE IDIOTS SEEM TO HONESTLY BELIEVE THE WAY WILL BE PAVED FOR A QUICK WIN OF THOSE RESOURCES.
THEY COULD NOT BE MORE WRONG.
THE U.N. IS ALSO NON-MUSLIM.
THAT MEANS THE PEOPLE OF 'ARABIA' WILL NEVER WELCOME THE U.N., EITHER.
WHAT SUCH AS IS REPORTED BELOW
WILL DO, WORST CASE SCENARIO, IS FORCE ISRAEL INTO A MASADA FRAME OF MIND.
ONCE ISRAEL PUSHES THAT BIG RED BUTTON, THE U.N. CAN BUT WISH IT HAD LEFT WELL ENOUGH THE HELL ALONE.
6 December 2012
“The UN general assembly has overwhelmingly approved a resolution calling on Israel to open its nuclear programme for inspection.
“The resolution, approved by a vote of 174 to six with six abstentions, calls on Israel to join the Nuclear Nonproliferation Treaty (NPT) ‘without further delay’ and open its nuclear facilities to inspection by the International Atomic Energy Agency. Those voting against were Israel, the US, Canada, Marshall Islands, Micronesia and Palau. . . .
“The vote came as a sequel to the cancellation of a high-level conference aimed at banning nuclear weapons from the Middle East.
All the Arab nations and Iran had planned to attend the summit in mid-December in Helsinki, Finland, but the US announced on 23 November that it would not take place, citing political turmoil in the region and Iran’s defiant stance on non-proliferation.
Iran and some Arab nations countered that the real reason for the cancellation was Israel’s refusal to attend.”
So essentially, it’s the entire planet on one side, versus the US, its new right-wing poodle to the north [that would be Canada], Israel, and three tiny, bribed islands on the other side."
WHO CAN MISS THE VENOM DRIPPING FROM THAT ARTICLE, HMMM?
THAT, BOYS AND GIRLS, IS JUST THE WAY IT IS.
ABSOLUTE, DEEP, DEDICATED HATRED NEVER DIES.
IT IS A CANCER.
IT LIVES TO KILL.
SURE, WE CAN JUST DRAG THIS OUT ANOTHER 100, 200, 10,000 YEARS, BUT WHY?
WHAT'S A LITTLE NUCLEAR WINTER COMPARED TO.... WHAT?
GIVING UP, GOING HOME?
WE EITHER GET THE HELL OUT OF THE MIDDLE EAST, ALL WHO ARE NOT "BLOOD OF ABRAHAM", AND LET THE SIBLINGS DECIDE THE THING, OR WE "INTERVENE" AS ONLY AMERICA AND OTHER "SUPER POWERS" CAN...
SOMETHING ON THE ORDER OF... MAYBE....
UNTIL ALL THAT'S LEFT ON THE "GLASSY" SANDS THERE IS....THIS.....
CAN ANYONE TELL IF THAT IS A MUSLIM OR NON-MUSLIM SKULL?
IT DOESN'T *!^%#$@#^*(#!* MATTER MUCH, DOES IT?
