Looks like the shit is hitting the fan all over again. One must ask if this little Youtube video is the cause or the camel's back. When you look at America's litany of offensive abuse against Islamic peoples; the support of oil tyrannies, the wanton killing of innocents in the name of terror, the hateful disrespect to Islam and Muslims by our brave troops and CIA torturers – one wonders we haven't been kicked out of the region by now.

Oh yeah, it would have something to do with our support of despots, and our ability to drone troublemakers out of existence. And generally wreak havoc on peoples' lives from the remote controlled comfort of our video game warrior military.

But what is happening now, is happening for a reason.

There are some crazy people who desperately want war. More war. The Big War. The Real War. So we can reset the world – and establish a new world order. A new map of the middle east.

Something has to be done. The world's system of trade and finance is in shambles; the colonial wars of resource acquisition are run amok – there is a real danger from the unintended consequences of brinkmanship -  and the peoples of the world are more and more willing to throw themselves on bayonets because their own lives of poverty, powerlessness and seething rage against their oppressor is worse than death. When people don't fear death, 'power' has a problem on its hands.

What's happening now is gearing Americans up for more war by propagandizing against Islam and Muslims. We've had the silly brigade scaring themselves, uh, silly, with their contemptible lies about Iran. We're doing the smash and grab in Africa. We're perfecting our colonial invasions using radical surrogates we can't control so the aftermath of our regime change success is FUBAR. But we don't care about governments, we care about pipelines. So, in some respects the more FUBAR the better as long as we have defense perimeters set around our prized acqusitions.

But the crazy people, and you know who they are, just can't get the fuse lit for the big show. The good news, for the crazies, is it's a fricking powder-keg out there, waiting to blow and everyone's got gasoline to throw on the pyre. One false move. One errant missile. One sunk ship. One assassination more. One more straw. And all hell breaks loose.

And it's all because some crazy people will stop at nothing, not even the borders of sanity, to get what they want. For some, it's not merely geo-strategic resource wars. That's completely understandable, if absolutely stupid. But for some, their zealous, radical, ideological and certain beliefs carry a stench of blood lust.

What's happening now in the Middle East is an orchestrated effort to bring the region to war. Because after the war – everything will better. The crazies always monger for war because they love peace.

There is smoke in the region. Embassies are burning, accusations are hurling, peoples are seething, and those whose goals are for death and destruction manipulate the puppets, control the propaganda and position the forces of hate to attack.

Religious wars are easiest thing in the world to start. They've been going on for millennia. They are going on now.

Those versed in the Art of War know what they are doing. And they know what they want.

And all we can do is sit back and watch in shock and awe.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.

    in this world that love violence---it satisfies a need in their lives: and they love war as well......................they would not seek a peaceful solution if it were the only solution left.

    And war has always been much more profitable than peace.

    When peace becomes a money-making dynamic: we will have peace.

    There are crazy people. Maybe millions of them. Who are looking for the slightest slight, the most innocuous of insults, slung by a tiny element from the west. And they're willing to use this insult as a cause for war. Forget that the west supported, however tacitly, the downfall of despotic leaders. It's meaningless when Allah is insulted. The crazies in this chapter is not the heathens of the wests, but rather the religious zealots, looking for, indeed searching for, and finding, an inspiration for outrage.

      "propagandizing against Islam and Muslims"

        no defense of propagandizing against Islam. It was offensive, hateful, and intentonally inciteful. And the response has been even more outrageously disproportional and msdirected.  The left assails the religious zealouts, who seek to control our bodies, our science, our lives, in our own country, yet gives a pass to those in other countries who support and create kingdoms which codify the very hate against women and gays which we assail in our own.  We never hesitate to criticize the invasion of god into our government. Yet when it happens half way around the world, save for a tiny speck of land, and even leads to mass violence, it's accepted and even supported. Ridiculous.

          unified voice of anything, your brush is rather broad.

          There are criminals and extremists of every religion.  From those who freak over their prophet being ridiculed, to those who will not allow a Palestinian spouse of an Israeli to live in Israel, to the bat-shit freak in Florida's followers blowing up women's health clinics.

          But people, the regular people in that country are holding signs condemning the violence.  

          These protests are not merely religiously based.  In Egypt, for example, they are being given the choices of the same leader or the same leader lite.  They want real Democracy.

          Our hegemony in the region, including the propping of dictators is well known and recent history to them.  So, you are saying in essence, if we don't like the traditions, customs or a religion of an area, we should invade them and force Western ways on them?


  •  Its not all about Islam. (0+ / 0-)

    In fact there are videos that show the same "insurgents" we armed are the ones attacking the embassies.

    In the comments of the RT article on this today - (my bold)

    "As I write this, I am fully aware people around the world can read it. The same goes for everything put on the net. The people in the Mid East and Africa are very aware of the killing machines called drones America is sending. They are aware of families killed and maimed, friends killed and maimed. Most of all, they are aware of the plans to colonize them, mostly dreamed up in America but also from America's puppet governments. This all started in 1948 but really took hold in 1967. Most readers will know what I mean. What was done in the latter part of the 1800's and early part of the last century was somewhat corrected but now is coming back on the world.

     In America's case, her wealth was consumed by Americans but because of greed is now because of lust spreading to the rest of the world. The people running America don't equate other people as the same as them with families with same aspirations and proplems. They change diapers, live through the growing years of their children and all the rest of what goes on in life. One big difference. They can find contentment with what they have. Their satisfied with their borders but for the most part don't have to explore and plunder. The west, as they call it, doesn't think like that and what we're reading about is the result of that restlessness. America has a military presence in over 130 countries. If the Americans saw a foreign soldier walking their streets, what would they do about it? What goes around. Comes around."

      That colonialism started in the late 40's. Because the centuries of Turkish control of the region wasn't anythng like colonialism.

      •  Yeah the Ottomans overran Poland too (0+ / 0-)

        and yet, I still don't think that means that carving up their country in recent history and removing them from their lands would go over well now to the Polish. The 40's are current events.  I'm Polish, and I'd have a thing or two to say about it.

        •  Which country (0+ / 0-)

          got carved up? That is, which country that ever had well defined or even vague borders got carved up? Exactly no country fits that description.

           Remember, Yemen has been independent, free from Ottomon rule for almost 100 years. Egypt, free from British influence since the 50's. And Libya became free from Italy about the same time. All had been colonies of other nations for centuries. So none of the countries involved in the current events were involved in any colonialization in 1948, but rather were all in the process of, or post decolonolization.
