Duck and cover! Too late. It probably wouldn't have
done any good anyway if there were a radiation, chemical, or germ laden
cloud above your home. You might not even know it was there. It may
have started at some war zone far away and it may have hitched a ride
with the jet stream. When it arrived over your house it may have trickled
down some death and then moved on.
real problem with some of the copy-cat wars that may break out, as already
indicated above, is that unlike Iraq, many of these nations really do
have weapons of mass destruction. And, also unlike Iraq, many of these
nations have more sophisticated delivery systems than camels. If such
wars break out like a string of Chinese firecrackers wrapped around
a rotting grapefruit, they may spread radiation, toxic chemicals and
disease across our two ocean moats into the U.S. itself. Chances are
there wouldn't be too many (there are hardly ever "too many"
deaths for the war mongers) people in the U.S. killed directly, but
for an accurate count of the death count, wait a few years as deaths
from unexplained cancers and other diseases begin to rise. Far away
wars aren't so far away anymore. Just as the air above us carries people
to far distant places, it also can carry radiation, chemicals and disease.
the above may sound a little like the concerns we heard in the days
when many Americans were watching Father Knows Best, building bomb shelters,
and thinking they could duck under their tables and survive a nuke blast
on their front lawns. But now, simply because so many nations have these
weapons, the possibility of this or similar things happening do present
a real danger. Think second hand smoke will kill you? Wait until we
have second hand nukes, germs and poison gas.
Bushies, who constantly say they want to bring democracy to Iraq (read,
force American notions of democracy on Iraq), can't even seem to live
with the democratic rules of the U.N., and promise to attack Iraq no
matter what the U.N. says. To blunt the fact that the U.N. isn't going
along with the rush to war and to avoid looking like we're the lone
nut case nation seeking war, the Bushies are bribing tiny nations no
one has ever heard of to join our coalition. So far it seems we have
East Greasemypalm, Lower Bribeme, and West Gimmegold on our side. Of
course, "on our side," doesn't mean that these countries will
actually send any troops to die. It just means that they're sitting
on bags of gold we gave them and cheering us on.
If the U.N. were to vote against things that truly affect
the U.S. the U.S. would be justified in disobeying. However, a risk
to the U.S. from Iraq is so remote as to make the U.S. look like a sadistic
bully and aggressor to the rest of the world. We're becoming an even
uglier Ugly American to the rest of the world than we have been in the
After watching Mr. Bush at his press conference the
other day, many people are wondering if he was on tranquilizers. His
performance was just too laid back and sleepy. Could Mr. Bush be in
therapy? There's nothing to be ashamed of in this--the mind is a strange
thing--but could his judgment be impaired to the point where he can't
distinguish between real threats and imaginary ones?
What nations may get froggy if the U.S. attacks Iraq
and delegitimizes the U.N.? The list is long, but Pakistan may have
signaled something this week when it seems to have sought some brownie
points with Bush by arresting Khalid Sheikh Mohammed of Al Qaeda. In
order to ensure we all know that Pakistan is our pal, Pakistani officials
immediately took to the airwaves and said that the arrest shows that
Pakistan and the U.S. are good friends. In other words, should Pakistan
attack India or vice versa, Pakistan will call in that marker.
Time will tell, but it may be that we have entered an age of chaos and war unlike any we have previously seen. This seems to be a natural concomitant to a perverse new world order vision in which the present unique nations, religions, and peoples are considered to be part of the old world order and which must be destroyed. The globalists, who I often call blenders, are heck bent (there's that Bushism again) on homogenizing nations, races, religions and world views through all means possible. Eternal war is just a logical, even if unintentional, ramification of an underlying blending philosophy. This is so, because at its heart, blending is a sadistic philosophy that demands complete submission and conformity based on a bland and mediocre neutral Americanism in all things.
