We Have a Little Problem, Sir: The World Hates Us December 18, 2007

Six years ago, at the wake of 9/11, we came to the realization that what we’ve done to the world through our foreign policy is getting back at us — a global political warming of sorts.

During the McCarthy days we fought communist countries that were rather poor and the average revolutionary dude was a working folk. In some cases, the people in these countries did not even realize that their governments were overthrown by puppet dictators controlled by the CIA. So they didn’t fight back.

But we went along getting our nose into more and more countries’ business making far more dangerous enemies along the way, like Russia. The Russians have always scared the living daylights out of US governments, and for that reason we’ve supported Islamic Organizations working against Russia and hired people like Bin Laden to help out with our Intelligence operations. Professor Michel Chossudovsky puts it as follows in this article:

Prime suspect in the New York and Washington terrorists attacks, branded by the FBI as an “international terrorist” for his role in the African US embassy bombings, Saudi born Osama bin Laden was recruited during the Soviet-Afghan war “ironically under the auspices of the CIA, to fight Soviet invaders.”

And you know the rest of the story. Bin Laden bombs us, we bomb Afghanistan and Iraq along the lines of Bush’s War on Terror and we threaten Iran, under the presumption that 1) They may be enriching Uranium (though the latest CIA report claims they stopped their nuclear weapons programs on 2003) and 2) only US and out NATO allies are entitled to have nuclear weapons.

And there goes Russia again, playing the devil’s advocate. They just gave Iran nuclear fuel, clearly unconcerned about what Bush may think of them. For more on this, read this NY Times article. And what did Bush do? Was he outraged?

The Bush administration, for its part, took pains not to publicly criticize the Russian move, and said that the fuel delivery means Iran should suspend its nuclear enrichment program. “If the Iranians accept that uranium for a civilian nuclear power plant, then there’s no need for them to learn how to enrich,” President Bush told reporters on Monday.

Not quite outraged, but rather… pathetic.

The US is the only country that has ever used a nuclear weapon against another country. And we didn’t target the middle of the ocean, as to scary people off. They put the bomb right in the middle of a city populated by civilians. Doesn’t that make us the most dangerous country in the world?

 

If You Buy Starbucks Coffee… December 1, 2007

Don’t try to be my friend. And here is why:

One of the owners of Starbucks, Howard Schultz, is a renown Zionist with a reputation for supplying monetary funds to Israel and forging the connection between Israel and the U.S. In 1998, the Jerusalem Fund of Aish HaTorah gave Starbucks the “The Israel 50th Anniversary Tribute Award”, an honor that was mentioned at some point on the Starbucks awards website but was mysteriously removed after the uproar it caused among the supporters of Palestine. The original can still be seen in the archives.

Howard Schultz has also claimed publicly that Palestinians are to blame for the hostilities. As reported by Elisa Hahn for King 5 (Seattle), 04/04/2002:

What is going on in the Middle East is not an isolated part of the world. The rise of anti-Semitism is at an all time high since the 1930’s.

The Palestinians aren’t doing their job they’re not stopping terrorism.

Let me put it this way. If your home town (say, Quebec) was settled and occupied by another country (say, British Canada) and the US supported the occupiers with money, weapons, and media control, would you help the occupiers in any way? Would you help the occupiers spread the word that your people are terrorists and racists? Would you support those who bash your people as unable to comply with peace treaties that do not benefit them in the least?

It’s just a matter of perspective.
