"The first use of nuclear weapons must remain in the quiver of escalation
as the ultimate instrument to prevent the use of weapons of mass destruction."
~Five Western military leaders.
I read the statement three times trying to figure
out the typo. Then it hit me, the West has now out-Orwellled Orwell: The West
must nuke other countries in order to prevent the use of weapons of mass destruction!
In Westernspeak, the West nuking other countries does not qualify as the use
of weapons of mass destruction.
The astounding statement comes from a
paper prepared for a NATO summit in April by five top military leaders an
American, a German, a Dutchman, a Frenchman, and a Brit.
The paper, prepared by men regarded as distinguished leaders and not as escapees
from insane asylums, argues that "the West's values and way of life
are under threat, but the West is struggling to summon the will to defend them."
The leaders find that the UN is in the way of the West's will, as is the
European Union which is obstructing NATO and "NATO's credibility is
at stake in Afghanistan."
And that's a serious matter. If NATO loses its credibility in Afghanistan,
Western civilization will collapse just like the Soviet Union. The West just
doesn't realize how weak it is. To strengthen itself, it needs to drop
more and larger bombs.
The German military leader blames the Merkel government for contributing to
the West's inability to defend its values by standing in the way of a revival
of German militarism. How can Germany be "a reliable partner" for
America, he asks, if the German government insists on "special rules"
limiting the combat use of its forces in Afghanistan?
Ron Asmus, head of the German Marshall Fund and a former US State Department
official, welcomed the paper as "a wake-up call." Asmus means a call
to wake-up to the threats from the brutal world, not to the lunacy of Western
Who, what is threatening the West's values and way of life? Political
fanaticism, religious fundamentalism, and the imminent spread of nuclear weapons,
answer the five asylum escapees.
By political fanaticism, do they mean the neoconservatives who believe that
the future of humanity depends on the US establishing its hegemony over the
world? By religious fundamentalism, do they mean "rapture evangelicals"
agitating for armageddon or Christian and Israeli Zionists demanding a nuclear
attack on Iran? By spread of nuclear weapons, do they mean Israel's undeclared
and illegal possession of several hundred nuclear weapons?
No. The paranoid military leaders see all the fanaticism, religious and otherwise,
and all the threats to humanity as residing outside Western civilization (Israel
is inside). The "increasingly brutal world," of which the leaders
warn, is "over there." Only Muslims are fanatics. All us white guys
are rational and sane.
There is nothing brutal about the US/NATO bombing of Serbia, Iraq, and Afghanistan,
or the Israeli bombing of Lebanon, or the Israeli ethnic cleansing of the West
Bank, or the genocide Israel hopes to commit against Palestinians in Gaza.
All of this, as well as America's bombing of Somalia, America's torture
dungeons, show trials of "detainees," and overthrow of elected governments
and installation of puppet rulers, is the West's necessary response to
keep the brutal world at bay.
Brutal things happen in the "brutal world" and are entirely the fault
of those in the brutal world. None of this would happen if the inhabitants of
the brutal world would just do as they are told. How can the civilized world
with its monopoly on morality allow people in the brutal world to behave independently?
I mean, really! God forbid, they might attack some innocent country.
The "brutal world" consists of those immoral fanatics who object
to being marginalized by the West and who reply to mass bombings from the air
and to the death and destruction inflicted on them through myriad ways by strapping
on a suicide bomb.
Unable to impose its will on countries it has invaded with conventional arms,
the West's military leaders are now prepared to force compliance with the
moral world's will by threatening to nuke those who resist. You see, since
the West has the monopoly on morality, truth, and justice, those in the outside
world are obviously evil, wicked and brutal. Therefore, as President Bush tells
us, it is a simple choice between good and evil, and there's no better
candidate than evil for being nuked. The sooner we can get rid of the brutal
world, the sooner we will have "freedom and democracy" everywhere
Meanwhile, the United States, the great moral light unto the world, has just
prevented the United Nations from censuring Israel, the world's other great
moral light, for cutting off food supplies, medical supplies, and electric power
to Gaza. You see, Gaza is in the outside world and is a home of the bad guys.
Moreover, the wicked Palestinians there tricked the US when the US allowed them
to hold a free election. Instead of electing the US candidate, the wicked voters
elected a government that would represent them. The US and Israel overturned
the Palestinian election in the West Bank, but those in Gaza clung to the government
that they had elected. Now they are going to suffer and die until they elect
the government that the US and Israel wants. I mean, how can we expect people
in the brutal world to know what's best for them?
The fact that the UN tried to stop Israel's just punishment of the Gazans
shows how right the five leaders' report is about the UN being a threat
to Western values and way of life. The UN is really against us. This puts the
UN in the outside world and makes it a candidate for being nuked if not an outright
terrorist organization. As our president said, "you are with us or against
The US and Israel need a puppet government in Palestine so that a ghettoized
remnant of Palestine can be turned into a "two-state solution." The
two states will be Israel incorporating the stolen West Bank and a Palestinian
ghetto without an economy, water, or contiguous borders.
This is necessary in order to protect Israel from the brutal outside world.
Inhabitants of the brutal world are confused about the "self-determination"
advocated by Western leaders. It doesn't mean that those outside Western
civilization and Israel should decide for themselves. "Self" means
American. The term, so familiar to us, means "American-determination."
The US determines and others obey.
It is the brutal world that causes all the trouble by not obeying.
