Tag Archives: Pox Americana

Mad-ministration scared now…

Tunisia, Lebanon, now Cairo.
They’re said to be the lynchpins in “Middle East Peace” meaning Pox Americana. Somehow ONLY the U.S. is capable of determning peace terms WTF?
Maybe there IS a huge disconnect in perception here in America. (Ok, “maybe” is just being polite) but going around conquering nations isn’t exactly a stabilizing mechanism.
Setting up puppet dictators in those conquered nations, conquered either through overt war like in Iraq and Afghanistan and Greece and South Korea, or through Diplomacy coupled with assassinations.
That won’t lead to peace either. There was a saying in the Military “Peace, through superior firepower” well, that’s not peace, that’s conquest. You can only force people to do your will for a limited time. Sooner or later, usually sooner, it comes roaring back and bites you square on your arse.
Now Obama and Mrs Clinton are treading a fine line, do we overtly back the demonstrators, in the hopes that they’ll be nice to our Slaverymongers Ambassadors of goodwill and freedom, or back Mubarak in the off chance that he’ll be able to suppress this rebellion (doing it on behalf of his Washington UberMeisters) and “We” would have to make nice to him. All to keep up a maintainable position in VietRaquiStan.

Synonymous terms: Fat chance, slim chance, not a snowball’s chance in Hell.

Well, now we know… Shades of the Kurdish Shepherd

The speculation about why we weren’t getting an Hourly Victory Report Update from the Helmand Province Massacre had a large spectre nobody was willing to say… that they were massacring civilians.
Billy McMethamphetamine, Commander on the ground there, acknowledged 12 civilians killed by the “smart bombs” fired against the “insurgents”. Since the “insurgents” are people who actually LIVE there, wouldn’t that make the Imperial Storm Trooper Invaders the REAL “insurgents”? They even use the base word of Insurgent, “surge” as part of the title they give their strategy.

Obama sucker punches Muhammad Ali

Apparently our double agent of change President Obama, invoked Muhammad Ali as a model of courage for staying the course just days before declaring a redoubled Pox Americana on the peoples of Afghanistan and Pakistan. Muhammad Ali Cassius Clay I’m glad sports historian Dave Zirin has spoken swiftly to forbid Obama’s defiling of the most famous draft resister in US history. Parkinson’s prevents Ali from defending his title, just as MLK’s memorializers airbrush King’s antiwar vehemence.

Zirin references this infamously principled quote which led to Ali’s suspension from boxing, but ultimate vindication by the US Supreme Court:
 

“Why should they ask me to put on a uniform and go 10,000 miles from home and drop bombs and bullets on brown people in Vietnam while so-called Negro people in Louisville are treated like dogs and denied simple human rights? No, I’m not going 10,000 miles from home to help murder and burn another poor nation simply to continue the domination of white slave masters of the darker people the world over. This is the day when such evils must come to an end.

I have been warned that to take such a stand would cost me millions of dollars. But I have said it once and I will say it again. The real enemy of my people is here….. If I thought the war was going to bring freedom and equality to 22 million of my people, they wouldn’t have to draft me, I’d join tomorrow. I have nothing to lose by standing up for my beliefs. So I’ll go to jail, so what? We’ve been in jail for 400 years.”

He also said: “I ain’t got no quarrel with them Viet Cong … They never called me nigger.”

President Obama’s attempt to co-opt the character of Muhammad Ali is a disgrace. I suppose this suggests that Obama will accept his Nobel Peace Prize with not the least sense of irony or shame.
