Go To The Moon??

I assume John Boehner is proud today, the nation of China sent a probe to the Moon which landed successfully on the surface and is now sending back pictures of that part of the universe. This is simply another example of what awaits America if only its people would grant power to the Tea Party. Think of the billions being saved by not having much of a space program? OK, let the Chinks boast of being ahead of the United States in space. Welcome to the new Tea Party America. We do not spend money on research in order to save money. We are not interested in new technology developments, because it does not say in the Constitution the federal government has a right to research new medical ideas or new things like the Internet–since the US government developed it, and since the Constitution does not state it can or should, the Internet must be ended and private enterprise only be allowed to handle economic development.

China and India are being informed they can handle space exploration. We are now the America without vision. We have to remain locked into the world of 1789 because only that which is in the Constitution is constitutional! Ah, we once built transcontinental railroads, we built might bridges and highways that spanned the continent. Those were the days of vision, welcome to the Ted Cruz world of hate and anger!

Let’s Have A War

Things have gotten too quiet these days. The United States is no longer fighting in Iraq, it is winding down activity in Afghanistan, fewer folk are getting banged around in Egypt and even the Irish are quiet. We Americans become rather disturbed when things become so slow, in terms of shooting and bombing and blasting. Thank God! We finally got a rise out of the Chinese and Japanese who have not been fighting one another for over a half century. A new important issue has arisen which demands attention. Does the issue concern an important issue between these countries? Darn well, does! There are thes four rocky pieces of land somewhere in the South China Sea. No, there are no people on the islands. No there are no houses on the islands, but they demand attention.

The islands are called, Senkaku in Japan. The islands are called, Diaoyu in China. Now, this difference provides a rationale to fight and kill. Who gave the other guy the right to call my islands by his name! China insists upon an air defence zone. The Chinese are upset. Imagine if “their rocks” got under the control of another nation? Wow!

Friends, it is time for war. Ted Cruz could give a filibuster, John McCain could talk about American “honor” and we could allow Barack Obama to establish a web site. Republicans finally could become job creators with a few million soldiers. Naturally, we would have to end Food Stamps to pay for this tiny little war over rocks in the South China Sea.

Israel Theatens Peace Efforts

During the past month there has been considerable progress in discussions between Iran and six powers-the US, UK, Russia, China, France and Germany–in an effort to identify an initial plan to move away from potential war and conflict. Iran’s supreme leader, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, insisted his nation is committed to making concessions in order to end sanctions and conflict with the world. However, he is sick and tired of being threatened by Israel which appears to demand veto rights on any agreement. He denounced Israel as behaving as a “rabid dog” in seeking to sabotage negotiations. Fench President Fandcoise Hollande termed such expressions as “unacceptable” and hindering negotiations. However, threats by Israel Prime Minister to bomb Iran, to initiate war with Iran are OK and apparently assist peace efforts!

Israel is the most dangerous country in the Middle East. It continuously makes threats and promises massive destruction of Iran, and the US does not seek to compel Israel to lower the rhetoric of war and allow the six nations to pursue the path of peace. Those who care about the people of Israel understand its future is best protected if peace is attained in the Middle East.

I Am So A Terrorist!

Several weeks ago in Beijing a car smashed into a crowd gathered in Tiananmen Square in Beijing and caused the death of bystanders. An Islamist terrorist group, the Turkestan Islamic Pary now claims responsibility for these murders. This group posted videos which depict similar attacks in other cities as part of their effort to drive China from Muslim areas in the west. Even the Chinese government now admits there has been a surge in violence due to attacks by the Chinese government upon Muslims inhabiting the far-western province of Xinjiang. There is now evidence of emergence of terrorist groups in China.

After all, there is no reason that China should escape the pleasure of having some terrorists in their midst. Terrorism is an equal opportunity employer and every nation is entitled to at least one. Join the death fun.

Iran Breakthrough Breaks Netanyahu Heart

Yesterday, Israel Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and his lap dogs in the American Congress were hailing France for not being fooled by the Iranian deception about peace. Today, we are back to wise remarks about “American fries” because the government of France decided to go along with Germany, Russia, England, China, FRANCE and the US in forging an agreement with the Iranian government to control its nuclear program. The agreement entails:
Cease using centrifuges to enrich uranium.
refrain from starting new centrifuges
Halt work on its plutonium reactor
Allow access to UN inspectors

Naturally, the GOP and Democratic senators whose primary allegiance is to Israel rather than to the American people denounced this agreement to halt development of nuclear weapons in the Middle East.

As of this moment, there is only ONE nation in the Middle East that bars UN nuclear inspectors and refuses to halt work on nuclear weapons. Oh, its name is ISRAEL!

Iran Rebuffed By Peace Seekers

In 2001,then reform President Khatami of Iran offered to assist American forces in Afghanistan in their campaign against the Taliban. President Bush accepted their assistance and then blasted the Iran government as supporting terrorism in the world. Today, Russia,China, the US and UK along with France and Germany are working with President Rouhani of Iran in order to halt his country’s nuclear program and reduce tension. Democrats and Republicans are increasingly united in denouncing Obamacare along with opposing Secretary of State’s work with key nations who seek to bridge the gap with Iran in order to end conflict in the Middle East. The incompetence of President Obama has now reached the point where even his own party lacks any trust in him, including being able to negotiate for peace. Fortunately, many do trust John Kerry who was able to obtain a few weeks in order to complete negotiations with Iran.

The United States of America has a Congress that, not only is unable to pass a law, but unable to agree on anything with the president. The lonely shy man is most comfortable with his family and Chicago crowd. If peace negotiation fails, who knows what will occur in the Middle East. The time is now. Perhaps, out president should turn over negotiations to John Kerry and spend some time in Chicago with his friends.

Get A Second Child?

There is good news from China, people can now have more than one child. There is bad news from China, people can now have more than one child. The government decided it would be OK for the Chinese people to have the right to enjoy the company of more than one child screaming at night and preventing adults from having a good night’s sleep. The 1979 decision to restrict people to one child was designed to prevent a huge growth in population. The current problem is that as life expectancy is extended the population of China has lots and lots of elderly folk and not enough young people to pay the costs of an aging population.

Oh, the government also decided to end its “re-education program” in which people got an extended paid for vacation in labor camps where one spent the day hacking away at farming and building. The government said the controversial program would be abolished “as part of efforst to improve human rights and judicial practices.” Gee, they are now talking about human rights. What next, the right to vote for someone you like??

China Supports Human Rights!

The Chinese government is upset. For some strange reason a court in Spain issued a warrant charging former Chinese President Jiang Zemin with participating in acts of genocide against the people of Tibet. Spain’s National Court issued the warrant under the doctrine of universal jurisdiction which allows courts to try human rights abuses committed in other countries. Beijing wants an explanation from the Spanish government as to how they claim the right to place on trial a Chinese citizen. From their perspective, the Chinese government has gone out of their way to provide education and knowledge to the people of Tibet. Heck, they even built a wonderful train which can send people from China to all parts of Tibet. A wonderful tourist vehicle that provides jobs.

How can China be guilty of “genocide, crimes against humanity, torture and terrorism” against the people of Tibet? The only reason Chinese soldiers are in Tibet is to protect its inhaitants against gangsters and criminals. If you don’t believe me, just ask Chinese soldiers in Tibet.

Come In, Says Iran

There is only one nation in the Middle East in possession of an atomic bomb and it’s name is not Iran. Israel has an atomic bomb, Israel refuses to allow UN inspectors into their facilities, Israel refuses to adhere to any international treaties pertaining to use of atomic weapons, and Israel is adamant that Iran must allow UN inspectors into their nuclear facilities. The government of Iran has agreed to allow inspectors from the International Atomic Energy Agency(IAEA) to enter long-unseen nuclear sites -the key Gchine uranimum mine and a heavy-water reactor in Arak.

Talks have broken down between Iran and the six world powers. France wants the Arak reactor to completely shut down. The IAEA insists:”it is forseen that Iran’s cooperation will include providing the IAEA with timely information about its nuclear facilities.” I wonder if a similar request should be made to Israel?

Seize The Moment!

Once again, an offer from Iran to proceed along a path of peace has been rejected by western nations. In 2001,then President Khatami cooperated with American forces in Afghanistan and offered to resolve the conflict with the United States only to be termed by President George Bush as a partner in an “evil axis” of powers like North Korea. This weekend, French Foreign Minister Laurent Fabius refused to go along with other nations in agreeing with Iran on a process of working toward peace. France demanded that Iran must suspend the Arak heavy water reactor while negotiations proceed. He refused to go along with the Iranian “con game.” British Foreign minister William Hague urged a different approach. “We came to seize the moment and seize the opportunity to reach a deal.” So, do it.

Nothing in diplomacy is perfect. A conflict may not be resolved in one act. Iran was proceeding along a path of POSSIBLE success. There was need to allow this path to be followed. If Iran broke their word, it was fairly easy to resume hate and violence.
