Once More Into Gaza?

For over two decades American foreign policy has been based upon the foreign policy of Israel when it comes to analyzing the situation in the Middle East. Heck, liberals like Bill Maher buy into the Israel claim they are surrounded by evil forces, and the center of this evil coalition is based in Gaza. This small piece of land has repeatedly been invaded by Israel forces and thousands of people have been murdered, oops, let me be politically correct, killed. In the last invasion fewer than 80 Israelis died, and about 2,200 people in Gaza died. Yes, there are PEOPLE in Gaza. A major problem in Gaza is that its Hamas leaders lack any sense of reality about how to proceed upon the road to peace. They continue buying into the Israel claim that Hamas has the resources to fight against Israel.

The Hamas Qassam Brigade, the Islamic Palestinian Jihad and other such groups are getting ready to send some more missiles into Israel and thus enable Israel to send in its air force and army so that another 2000 innocent people can be killed. Oh, they are building tunnels. Here is the reality:

The combined forces of Egypt, Jordan, Lebanon, Hamas, do NOT threaten Israel. In the first place, neither of these “armies” have the slightest desire to fight against Israel. Oh, Israel has EIGHTY ATOMIC BOMBS!

It is time for Hamas to confront reality — they will not defeat Israel. It is time for Israel to confront reality –they are not surrounded by evil forces seeking its destruction!

Saudi Arabia To The Rescue!

The American people can sleep peacefully in their beds tonight, and Fox News can cease attacking Barack Obama for being a coward. The air force of Saudi Arabia has swung into action and is bombing the hell lout of Shiite forces in Yemen. The Shiite Huthi rebels have taken over control of the government of Yemen and are in pursuit of former Sunni leaders who have fled to the south. Saudi Arabia regards itself as the protector of all Sunnis in the world. For decades money from Saudi Arabia has poured into the coffers of great Sunni followers of people like the Taliban or Osama bin Laden, and its madrases schools have educated as few generations of Muslims about evil Western powers such as the United States of America. I guess the Saudi government has finally realized their efforts to spread a traditional sense of the Muslim faith has sort of wound up creating terrorist groups all over the world.

As long as terrorist forces did not bother the Saudi government, its leaders felt perfectly comfortable, but when the Shiite Huthi, who are next door, arose and drove out its Sunni leaders, then the Saudi government decided it was time to get serious about controlling terrorism. So, the Saudi air force is pounding away. Let us hope its air force is as good as the madrases schools which were successful in producing terrorists!

Drone Wars Must End

There is one consistent belief that has been held and continue to be held by leaders of America. They fervently hold to the belief that if we kill leaders of terrorist organizations they will collapse and peace will reign. As you recall, we did kill Osama bin Laden and the result was….. I think there are now MORE terrorists in al-Qaeda than when the dead dude led them. Today, we Americans have refined the method of killing bad guys. We send drones into the air, they are informed that the guy down there wearing a robe is a very, very bad guy and must be obliterated from the face of the earth. One question lingers in my mind, how did American intelligence receive the information that led to the conclusion this particular guy was a terrorist?

Our intelligence believed that an Afghan who has been designated to be “Doody” was a terrorist. The drone hovered over the area where Doody lived and soon a missile went down to earth. For some reason, the missile hit an innocent Afghan man and his son. The boy was killed and Doody continued living. So, they began to send machine guns bullets down to earth until Doody was no more.
Again, who decided that Doody was the bad guy?

Has anyone in American intelligence considered that if I wanted to get rid of an enemy or person I considered to be someone who was not my friend, all I have to do is inform American intelligence that he is a terrorist.

Outside Tikrit

As a child I learned the story of the Alamo when a handful of brave Americans held off the large Mexican army for several days before being overwhelmed and killed. Today, outside the city of Tikrit in northern Iraq there area about 1,000 members of ISIS hold up inside the city and ready to die for their cause, just as did the Americans at the Alamo. Apparently, there are over 25,000 soldiers in the Iraq army and nmow they have an opportunity to defeat 1,000 of the bad guys. During the initial stage of this battle, the good guys did advance and now they have cornered the bad guys. Apparently, the good guys appear stalled and they are hesitating about banging away into the main city. Reports indicate the bad guys are ready to die and are begging the good guys to come get them.

This story is repeated time after time. Bad guys ready to die, and good guys ready to hold off from being brave. There is no question that bad guys in the Middle East BELIEVE in their cause. They are ready to go to heaven or wherever good guys posing as bad guys wind up. Iraqi forces have now summoned the US air force to blast away. There is no question they will send thousands of missiles and bombs into Tikrit. The real question is why do the good guys lack determination in this struggle. It is clear that until members of the Iraq army come to believe in their cause, such hesitation will continue. Who knows, perhaps in this case the guys inside the Alamo will survive!

Jesus Story Today

Christian fundamentalists insist the Jesus Christ will one day return to take everyone up to Heaven and enjoy the beauty of eternal peace and happiness. There is one problem with this story. Consider the following:

1. Jesus walks around in a robe.

2. Jesus has strange fellow features.

3. Jesus does not speak English.

4. Jesus is an illegal immigrant.

5. Jesus makes no sense to a modern Republican, he is in favor of the poor and does not respect the wealthy.

6. If stopped by a cop he would continue walking toward him with open arms.

7. He was born and raised in the Middle East and we know all about those people.

I have a hunch Jesus knows all about American cops and just wants prefers to be crucified.

Oh, and he sure the heck would never vote for Bibi Netanyahu!

Mystery Of Jeb Bush email

Another day, another email mystery is in the news. It appears that while governor of Florida Jeb Bush had a secret email account known as jeb@gen.com. As of this hour, no one knows what the email was used for and why it has previously not been reported. Hillary has her Benghazi and Jeb has his secret email. So,what is in this mysterious email?

1. Most probably it has a direct link to the Koch brothers and their money.

2. Or, it could be linked to Jeb’s secret lover, Sarah Palin.

3. Or, it could mean that Barack Obama his secret brother. Did you know that his mother had an affair with Barack’s dad? Go ahead, prove my statement to be incorrect!

4. Or, it could be his contact with his gay lover.

I believe anyone who desires to run for President should destroy his email and end the twitter account!

HEADLINES FROM WORLD PRESS

We offer samples of headlines that appeared in the world press along with our comments.

Sweden, Local: “Dog Moves In With Family”

I assume the cat moved out.

Denmark, Copenhagen Post: “People Lose Faith In Police”

Sorry, this is NOT news.

France, Connexion: “Thousands March Against Health Laws”

At least they are getting some exercise.

China, China Daily: “China Heads Reform Project”

We can expect that many minds will be reformed of bad ideas about democracy.

Russia,Moscow Times: “First President Transplant”

Finally, Putin gets a heart!

In Defense Of Muslims

There is one issue that conservatives and liberals agree upon and that is the assumption there is something inherently wrong about the Muslim religion. Liberals like Bill Maher or conservatives like Bill O’Reilly insist that fundamental to the Muslim religion is a belief in violence and death. I assume this view also agrees such attitudes are not part of the Christian or Jewish religions. At some point in any discussion about the Middle East an American expert on religions will inform people that only the Muslim religion leads to violence. Let us examine the record.

This is how religions in the 20th century behaved:

1. Muslims did participate in the murder of about one million Armenians in Turkey.

2. Catholic Fascist Italy murdered a few hundred thousand people in Ethiopia.

3. Catholics in Spain murdered over million fellow Catholics.

4. Christian Nazi Germany murdered ove twenty million human beings. Adolf Hitler was born a Catholic, lived as a Catholic and died as one.

5. Fascist Italy during World War I murdered at least a million people.

6. Christians in Rwanda in Africa murdered about 800,000 people.

7. Buddhists in Japan murdered at least five million people. Oh, suicide bombers killed about ten thousand Americans.

8. Oh, there were no Muslims in Cambodia when one million people were murdered.

9. Oh, in Christian Soviet Union the government murdered over ten million people.

10. Then again non-Muslim Mao tse-tung murdered over ten million.

The evidence is overwhelming, the Muslim religion can not match Christians when it comes to violence and death!

Israel Government Knows How To Achieve Peace

The election in Israel is now over, but the issues which dominated that event continue to dominate the news of the Middle East. Strategic Minister Yuval Steinitz insists that Bibi Netanyahu understands how to achieve peace in the Middle East. After all, he has crushed any Palestinians who dare oppose his views of Middle Eastern issues so why does not Barack Obama accept the fact that Netanyahu is the expert on peace in that region of the world. Mr. Steinitz wants the American people to realize that in regard to current discussions with Iran about resolution of atomic energy, “we think it’s going to be a bad, insufficient deal. It seems quite probable, it will happen, unfortunately.”

OK, so assume it is a bad deal. There are times in life when one is compelled to accept a deal that may not be perfect, but it, at least for the moment resolves a problem. So, what is the Bibi alternative?

1. Bomb Iran.

2. Force Iran to bomb Israel.

3. Cause the death of thousands of Israelis.

4. Cause the death of thousands of Iranians.

5. Create complete chaos in the Middle East.

6. Unleash hundreds of suicide bombers upon the Israel people,

THAT is the alternative to a “bad deal.”

Death In Afghanistan

Untold thousands have died in Afghanistan during the past half century so it is rather difficult getting upset about another Afghan death. Farkhunda was a university student who suffered from some mental issues in her life. She was described as studious and very religious. That much about her is agreed upon by those who knew this young woman. She attended classes at a university and studied religion. At this point the story becomes somewhat confused. Somehow and for some reason, other Afghans came to believe that the girl had burned a copy of the Koran. Hundreds heard the story and came looking for her. We do know that this mob beat her, they assaulted her, they finally burned her. There is no doubt there are people in Afghanistan who believe they have the right to murder in the name of Allah.

Government officials are shocked. Interior Minister Novrulhaq Ulumi made clear: “the accusation against her is completely invalid. She was a religious girl, she was not involved in the burnig of the Koran, she was innocent. It is very painful that we were not able to protect a pious young person.” It is now clear that policemen were part of the mob. The sad part of this story is that a religious girl was murdered gy those claiming to be religious. Something is very sad about this story. Unfortunately, it will occur again and again.
