Bringing Democracy and Human Rights to the Middle East


1994

So, given that Cheney knew precisely what would happen before 'changing his mind' about what should happen, the question that has to be asked is: Is US policy status in the region still 'mission accomplished'?

Let's give George W Bush some credit. It most likely was not him who said, "Yeah, if you can put a sign saying 'Mission Accomplished' above my head on the warship, that would be great."

Whole peoples, nations, as well as their politicians seem to be just pawns in the hands of the bunch of psychopaths have been running US foreign policy. Is there any US policy of 'regime change' for Israel, since I hear they may be guilty of some serious human rights abuses?

Pray for the Christians of Iraq, Syria and for peace in the Middle East.

So Sadaam, the psychopath, is still in charge in Iraq with his psychopath sons and entourage but now he has Kuwait and its immense oil wealth under his belt. He has also now been given an 'all clear' for further expansion and somehow all is well with the world? Oh, yeah, right!
He was a destabilising nutcase who wouldn't have known where to stop until somebody stopped him (like his mentor Adolph). He would have been stopped eventually but maybe only at the gates of Jerusalem by Israeli or US atom bombs dropping on Baghdad.

I would guess that most wars are like onions. To get to the prime reason they happen you have to keep peeling back. I would also guess the prime reason is usually the 'desctruction' of the divine rights of Christ the King as ruler over all nations. The next layer is probably going to be resources. In Iraq, "Fighters with the Islamic State group launched a three-pronged attack over the weekend in a drive to capture Haditha Dam, in western Iraq, a complex with six power generators located alongside Iraq’s second-largest reservoir. At the same time, they are fighting to capture Iraq’s largest dam, Mosul Dam, in the north of the country.Seizing the dams and the large reservoirs they hold would give the militants control over water and electricity that they could use to help build support in the territory they now rule by providing the scarce resources to residents. Or they could sell the resources as a lucrative source of revenue." Washington Post.

Who is the enemy? Someone who wants to enslave you, kill you, destroy your 'way of life'. These days most enemies do it with attritional weapons.

One list for effective rules of engagement:

1. Find the enemy.
2. Fix the enemy in place and deny his maneuver and repositioning.
3. Engage the enemy with all available weapons systems.
4. Destroy the enemy wherever he presents himself.
5. Pursue the enemy to its complete destruction.

If the above were the rules of engagement in all conflicts between right and wrong (heresy and Truth included), the perennial war scenario endgendered by such 'peace-keeping' big brother's as Tyrants & Co. (aka the UN) and even Vatican II, might acutally be killed at the roots now and then, rather than being permitted to grow wild choking everything good.

@seattle Kim - thanks for the Saint tip. At last, a useful Catholic 'tip' (re: the recent 'tips' from a famous 'rock-stah' in off-white).

straight talk can be like a fresh mountain spring washing away all the 'stagnant water'.

p.s. if you ever get a chance to visit Sainte-Chapelle you'll see alot of imagery where the lives of the saints are depicted; unique out of all 'cultures' the Saint's emblems of triumph and victory are usually the cruel means imposed upon them by antichrists card-punchers in their martyrdom (in other cultures 'heroes' are rembered by their personal means of giving satan a 'here's lookin' at you kid') - not so Catholic Saints; Catholic martyrs took to Christ their own physical lives and always their prayers for those who tortured and murdered them. The Crusaders' first priority was properly liberating the faithful (do not despise your own flesh). Unfortunately 'orthodox' schismatics for whom a majority of inspired western Catholics had become vagabonds to 'liberate', cared little for the faith and preferred their slavemasters. Gone are times when moslem mothers said to their kiddies, 'be good or the King of England will get you'. Nowadays it may as well be - bad/good who cares? The 'king of england' sold his soul to William Dunbar's nemesis; go ahead unbaptized kiddies, destroy truth at will.
