5 March 2017. Why Do the Republicans Hate Syria and Decent Muslims? Why Do They LOVE the KSA and Radical Islamists?

00-syria-soldier-cross-koran-050317

___________________________________________

The Neoliberals (both “liberals” and “conservatives” alike) hate decent Muslim lands like Syria and support radical anti-Christian Islamists like the KSA. The Democrats are bad in this, but the Repugs are far worse. They kiss the naked ass of the Saudis for all to see, in the most humiliating ways possible. The USA refuses to stick up for the rights of the Christian “guest workers” in the KSA. IT REFUSES… so all the Repug talk of helping Christians in the Middle East is bootless and airy propaganda for the stupid and credulous. If one doesn’t stand up for the oppressed Christians in the KSA, then, one is a hypocritical poseur if one screams about “persecuted Christians in the Middle East”.

Don’t forget… the neoliberals (both Dems and Repugs) supported and abetted the terrorist Bin Laden… they both attacked Libya and Iraq for no cause whatsoever (except for the fact that Iraq and Libya were socialist states that gave their oil wealth to the people, not American fatcat oligarchs). Now, they want you to hate Syria for no good reason. Don’t fall for it.

Washington Wants Coalition of Sunni Régimes to Fight Iran

00 Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov and his Iranian counterpart Ali Akbar Salehi. 06.12

____________________________________

The Saudis can’t even defeat the poorly-equipped Houthis in Yemen… good luck fighting a well-trained well-armed Moscow-backed military. We know it’s a badly abused cliché, but we really did laugh out loud after reading that Washington is “working to create a military alliance of Sunni Arab nations” to “counter” Iran. Close your eyes and imagine NATO. Are you seeing visions of an incompetent useless dinosaur that can’t tell the difference between a wedding party and a terrorist pow-wow? Now, clear your mind and imagine a NATO-like coalition with Egypt, Jordan, the KSA, and the UAE as members. Imagine that this coalition of medieval failures had one mission and one mission only… to provoke a war with Iran.

Typical. Washington finally realised that Americans have zero interest in starting a war with Iran, despite years of tireless propaganda portraying Tehran as an existential threat to humanity… or Israel, but what’s the difference, right? They’ve tried everything… even lobbing accusations that one can easily debunk with a simple Google search. Hey, wait a minute… maybe, our medieval Sunni allies would fight Iran for us? That’d be swell. Isn’t that what friends are for? This is true desperation seeping out of Washington’s adult diapers.

Iran isn’t Syria. It doesn’t have to worry about appeasing 1,000 different ethnic and religious groups. It’s a proud country with a long history of fighting off foreign parasites. A Sunni war against Iran would’ve likely been a disaster even ten years ago. Today? It’d be suicidal. Russia is Tehran’s dependable political and military ally, and the idea that Washington would somehow drive a wedge between Moscow and Tehran is ludicrous. Russia would do everything it could to help Iran fight off Sunni fanatics, for the same reason it intervened in Syria… if Washington’s “moderates” were to overrun the Middle East, Russia would be next.

Forget the fact that Iran already deploys Russian-made S-300 SAMs, or that Russia and Iran coördinated a miraculous military campaign to turn the tables in Syria in less than a year… an experience that’d be invaluable if there were a Sunni-led war against Iran. Just for a moment, consider that Russia has gone so far as to ask Washington to acknowledge Hizbullah as a crucial part of anti-ISIS efforts in Syria. Hizbullah! The very name sends shivers up the crooked spines of every Israel First blowhard with an American passport.

People worry that Moscow would abandon Tehran? For Russia, Iran is a holy grail of business opportunities and security coöperation. There’s one takeaway from Syria… Washington loves to stir up trouble in countries that can’t defend themselves. However, when a formidable force such as Russia steps into the ring, the Americans run for the hills (crying foul, of course). Even with full support from Washington and Israel (Israel would stay in the shadows, to keep up appearances), the KSA, Qatar, and the UAE would get a Russian-backed Persian beating that they’d never forget. The icing on the cake would be that this “anti-Iran” bloc includes some of the most autocratic states on earth… anti-women, anti-democratic, anti-everything… it’d be a true joy to watch Washington claim that the KSA and Qatar were fighting Iran to protect democracy in the Middle East.

Of course, we’re probably getting ahead of ourselves. Following NATO’s model, this coalition of medieval head-choppers would first surround Iran with defensive military bases. Then, the provocations and (more) sanctions would begin. It won’t work. Iran isn’t Iraq. It isn’t Libya. It isn’t Syria. It already has the full backing of Russia. If Washington were smart, it’d take note.

7 February 2017. A Point to Ponder… A True Read n’ Heed

00 same ol' shit. 29.05.12

____________________________________

The mainstream pro-imperialist left and the demagogic racist alt-right are effectively playing off each other. The alt-right screams hatred for Muslims, describing the actions of Saudi Arabia and al-Qaeda. The left screams, “You’re not allowed to say that! Racist!” and supports the “Syrian Revolution” and other CIA régime-change operations. No one points up that the USA props up Saudi Arabia, funding and arming Wahhabi groups, whilst targeting independent states like Syria, Iran, and Libya. Yes, there is backwardness in the Middle East, but the west has maintained it and targeted the forces of modernism and independence. The Alt-Right and the Soros Pro-Imperialist Cultural Left are like a duet, with both sides singing their chorus of lies, drowning out the truth. One side wants covert funding of Wahhabi extremists in the name of human rights and pushes “understanding” of disgusting autocratic US-aligned régimes like Saudi Arabia and Qatar. The other side wants violent attacks on Islamic countries, repression of immigrants, and support for Israel. I want neither. I want people in the Middle East to have the freedom to develop their own countries without foreign meddling. Self-determination.

Seize Saudi Oil, Solve World Problems

Donald Trump didn’t ban travellers from the KSA. It tells you something about him… and his clique, too. They scream about terrorism… and don’t ban those from the foremost terrorist-enabling state in the world. It only deepens the impression that Trump’s supporters in the general population are brain-damaged and ignorant. If you wish to fight terrorism, then, you’d fight the states that support it most. I’d say that’s the KSA and the Gulf states… none of which is on Trump’s list.

None dare call it stupid…

Would you like to know how the USA could virtually eliminate global Islamic terrorism and world hunger with one stroke?

Seize the oil wells of Saudi Arabia.

If this sounds preposterous and unethical… “the USA doesn’t go on the offensive and it certainly doesn’t ‘steal’ other peoples’ natural resources, especially its allies!”… consider some facts:

First, anyone who sees the Islamic State (ISIS) as a cancer on earth that needs to be eradicated… most Americans, including US President Donald Trump, do… must also see the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia (KSA) in similar terms.  For the desert kingdom enforces the same kind of Islam that ISIS does… with all the religious intolerance, beheadings, crucifixions, mutilations, and misogyny we associate with terrorists.

Worse, the KSA spends a whopping 100 billion dollars (5.893 billion Roubles. 687.56 billion Renminbi. 6.735 trillion INR. 131.09 billion CAD. 130.36 billion AUD. 93.37 billion Euros. 80.24 billion UK Pounds) annually… trillions over the decades… to support and spread the vilest form of Islam (Wahhabism/Salafism) around the world. The KSA funds virtually all radical literature, radical mosques, radical websites, and radical satellite programs… all of which create radical Muslims. In other words, if you trace the “radicalisation” of Muslims… including formerly good neighbours and colleagues that suddenly got pious, grew a beard or donned a veil, and then went on a shooting spree, or “martyred” themselves in a suicide attack… Saudi money will almost always be at the end of the line.

It gets worse still… the Islamic kingdom isn’t only the chief exporter of radical ideologies; it’s also the chief financier and material supporter of the worst terrorist groups. ISIS and al-Qaeda wouldn’t exist without Saudi and other Gulf largesse. So, how is the KSA able to fuel this multifaceted and global jihad? It does so entirely from the oil reserves beneath the Arabian Peninsula. Now, in a fair world, surely the Saudis should keep the natural resources of Arabia… even if it was the West that discovered and created the technology to use oil. However, when they openly use that wealth to spread hate, turmoil, terrorism, and the slaughter of innocents around the world, surely the international community can justifiably respond… in this case, by seizing the weapon from out their hands, that is, the oil wells.

Some may argue that, whatever the merits of this argument, there’s no way the US leadership could sell such a war to the American people. Actually, they could… very easily; and all they’d have to do is tell the American people the truth for a change. Remember, the establishment has already behaved more “spectacularly”, including by going on the offensive against several Arab rulers… in Iraq, Libya, and now Syria. In every case, the real motives for war were/are hidden from the public, probably because they didn’t and don’t serve American interests (hence, why ISIS is now entrenched in “liberated” Iraq, “liberated” Libya, and still-being-“liberated” Syria). All the US leadership and media had to do was to portray Saddam, Gaddafi, and Assad as “monsters” persecuting their own people. That was enough for most Americans to agree to the waging of these wars, if not heartily support them.

In the case of Saudi Arabia, the establishment wouldn’t have to deceive the public… the Saudi régime is a monster. As in ISIS-held territories, women in the KSA are little better than chattel; it persecutes and sometimes executes blasphemers, apostates, and homosexuals; all non-Sunnis… from Hindus to Shia… are subhuman infidels and it treats them accordingly; it closes house churches and it confiscates and destroys Bibles and crucifixes, and it throws Christians caught worshipping in private in jail and tortures them. The KSA is arguably even more backwards than ISIS is… women can still drive in Mosul and Raqqa, whereas they’re forbidden in the KSA; and the Saudi government has its own special department devoted to tracking down and executing witches and warlocks.

Nor is Saudi savagery confined to the Peninsula. The KSA régime once issued a fatwa, or Islamic-sanctioned decree, still available online for all to see, calling on the world’s Muslims to hate all non-Muslims (meaning more than 99 percent of Americans; such is how “our good friend and ally” really feels about us).
