Russia Hacks White House

President Obama and the American government are upset because Russia hacked the White House. For some reason, he believes that other nations have no right to hack into any American facility. This is an interesting approach given that America hacks into each and every nation’s facilities. Heck, we even hacked the emails of German Prime Minister Angela Merkel!! Name any nation that has escaped the attention of the NSA, the CIA and God knows which other American spy agency over the past two decades? What we need in the world is:

1. A day each year in which other nations can hack into your records. Just one day.

2. Or, we could just reveal all those secrets that really are not secrets. After all, there are over one million Americans who have access to Top Secret. Heck, when I was in the US Army I was cleared for NATO Secret!

3. How about a Share the Secret Holiday?

4. It would be wonderful if the US government actually shared with the American people some of the secrets they know about each and everyone of us.

5. Why not simply inform President Putin he can access any of the following twenty secrets in exchange for seeing twenty of his secrets?

Enough withe the secret game.

Bibi, Foreign Policy Expert?

Members of the Republican party and a lot of Democratic Senators regard Israel Prime Minister as an expert on the Middle East. Here is the record:

1. In 1992, Bibi insisted that Iran was a few years away from having an atomic bomb.

2. In 2002 Bibi insisted that America had to invade Iraq and end the menace of Saddam.

3. In 2003, Bibi insisted that Iran was a few years away from an atomic bomb.

4. When Bibi took over leadership of Israel, its closest ally was Turkey and the IDF and Turkish army units conducted joint exercises. Today, Turkey is furious at Israel due to attacks on its ships and murder of
Turkish citizens.

5. In 2010 Bibi insisted that Iran was close to having an atomic bomb.

6. Bibi believes the solution we should follow is to bomb Iran.

7. Hezbollah in Lebanon has 30,000 missiles which will be sen toward Israel in case of war.

8. The prior three heads of Mossad insist that attacking Iran would be a mistake.

So, why is Bibi an expert??

Bibi Never Gives UP

It is understandable that Bibi Netanyahu is upset because the good old days when American forces fought and died in Iraq is no longer possible. Bibi is a fighter who never gives up regardless of the fact the guy he is fighting wants to end violence and work for peace. Of course, Bibi and his buddies in Congress are convinced that Iranians can not be trusted and the only land in the Middle East which can is ISRAEL. So, examine the record:

Israel launched an attack in 1956 against Egypt until told to stand down by President Eisenhower–a Republican.

Israel launched an attack in 1967 and won the Six Day War.

Israel invaded Lebanon in the 1980s

Israel has four times invaded the Gaza Strip.

And, violent Iran: IT HAS NEVER INVADED A MIDDLE EASTERN NATION.

Anyway, Yuval Steinitz, Israel minister strategic affairs said that military action is possible against Iran. “It was on the table. It is still on the table. It’s going to remain on the table.”More words of peace from Israel.

Explaining Yemen

I intend to perform a public service and explain the situation in Yemen.

!. Yemen is located at the southwest tip of the Arabian peninsula

2. Yemen used to be run by President Saleh who worked with the CIA.

3. Then for some reason, this guy was overthrown by President Hadi.

4. Then along came the Houthis who are a Shiite sect.

5. Then the Sunni Saudi Arabians and Egyptians and Gulf State rulers got angry.

6. Al Qaeda which is Sunni decided to aid President Saleh who is Sunni

6. So, the Shiite Iranians are aiding the Houthis and somehow they are now allies of the some Sunni Yemenits.

I trust this clears up the confusion.

No Muslim Days In Xipiang

China is such a vast country that we often forget how many diverse groups are within its borders. As one goes west in that nation it becomes evident that many people are of the Muslim faith. The province of Xipiang is among the most Islamic areas in China. Being Communists who respect the right of oppressed people it is only normal for Communist authorities to demand an end to ancient ideas such as the eating of a hijab or a chador can result to jail time. Naturally, males are informed they can not we wear a beard because too many Muslims wear such facial hair. The Uighurs who are the dominant group in the province are subject to denial of religious freedom.

A new feature of the anti-Muslim movement is to award jobs to those who do not wish to belong to the past. Interested in a job as a hairdresser or baker? Just shave off the beard and ditch the veil and welcome to the world of Communism. As I recall, old Karl Marx always wore a beard. I wonder if he was a secret Muslim??

More Chaos In Turkey

These days the only certainty is that someplace and somewhere in the Middle East some militants will do something horrific. I hate to inform the Republican party or Fox News, but the United States of America is unable to control the multitude of terrorists, gangsters and nut cases who wander the streets of some Middle Eastern city. The latest episode occurred in Turkey. Ironically, this act of terrorism had absolutely not connection to al-Qaeda or to the H out his or to ISIS or to any other Muslim group in the area. It was an old fashioned Turkish example of terrorism. The Turkish government has refused to institute reforms that would benefit its 20% Kurdish minority and with each passing day insists that all must obey the Great Leader named Recep Erdogan. Believe it or not but there are still some old fashioned Marxists still alive in Turkey!

Members of the Revolutionary People’s Liberation Force entered a court room and captured a prosecutor. He was held as a hostage until Special Forces charged into the room which led to his murder. IN Turkey they do not believe in negotiation, they just blast ahead and the hell with a hostage who is now dead. The prosecutor was investigating a case in which an eleven year old boy was killed by Turkish police because he was at the scene of a demonstration. Frankly, it was amazing that in the world of Recep Erdogan anyone is placed on trial for killing an innocent protester.

I must admit surprise there are still some Marxists left in this world.

Republicans On Middle East

The attack upon Barack Obama continues as members of the Republican party and their media source, Fox News, continue to insist that whatever has happened in the Middle East is the result of blunders on the part of Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama. Examine the record:

1. ISIS was created due to mistakes by President Obama. He refused to recognize this organization as an important development.

Reality: Actually, some truth to this charge, when ISIS arose, Obama did not recognize what it represented. He thought it was simply another version of al-Qaeda.

2. Obama failed to maintain US troops in Iraq.

Reality: He refused to allow US troops because the government of Prime Minister Maliki really did not want them to remain and refused to accept a condition that Americans would not be tried in Iraq courts. Imagine what Fox News would do if US troops could be placed on trial in an Iraq court?

3. Fox News and SOME REPUBLICANS insist we need “troops on the ground.”

Reality: Every poll reveals the American people oppose this action. And, this feeling is shared by Republicans such as Rand Paul.

Reality: We are living in the aftermath of the blunder of invading Iraq. We will live with this action for several more years.

Putin Defends Freedom

Russian President Vladimir Putin is not only upset but up beat about conditions in the world. Naturally, his primary issue is protecting Mother Russia from attacks by the Nazis in Ukraine. He is the defender of the Russian people agains the hordes of menacing soldiers from the evil steppes of Ukraine. He informed the people of his land there are attempts to pressure the Russian government by resorting to economic measures that reduce trade with his land. According to Putin, NATO is “building up its infrastructure on our borders.” Therefore it is imperative to Russia to be on guard. “The situation will not change for the better if we succumb and yield at every step. It will only change for the better if we become stronger.”‘

In simple and clear Russian this means the people must do without and the government must do with more and more of their money in order to create an armed force that can handle the great army of Ukraine. I do not believe that Ukraine has large numbers of tanks and planes but they have hordes of soldiers ready to sweep into Russia and rape and pillage.

And, by the way, beat up some gays and lesbians since they are agents of the Nazis from Ukraine!

Yemen Blues

Fighting continues in Yemen but to understand what is going on one must have a scorecard. Let me explain:

1. Former President Saleh who we once considered to be one of the good guys is now viewed as one of the bad guys.

2. We do not like al-Qaeda whose forces are in Yemen.

3. The Shiite sect Houthis hate al-Qaeda.

4. But the Houthis overthrew the government of President Hadi.

5. We like President Hadi.

6. Saudi Arabia and other Sunni nations like Egypt do not like the Houthis.

7. So, everyone is bombing everyone else.

If you understand what is going on, please let me know.

The Sorrow Of Death

I confess to being emotionally overwhelmed by the recent tragic death of 150 people when their plane went down on its flight from Spain. We inhabit a world in which hate flourishes and results in the death of the innocent. A group of people boarded a plane in Spain that included children on their way home from studying. They were innocent, but unfortunately they inhabit a world in which a single mentally ill person can murder a few hundred people. New evidence indicates that one of the pilots just broke up with his girl friend and that he had serious mental issues. In the modern world when one is mentally ill, then one has the power to murder dozens of people. Frankly there is no way to avoid such calamities. We benefit from modernity and we suffer from modernity.

There are no words to express our sorrow. There are no words to explain this murder of the innocent. All we can do is chalk it up to modernity and what we humans have created in the name of ‘progress.” The only certain thing is that within a few years there will be another such incident. Just remember, there are people on social media who thrive on becoming important.
