Dealing With Savages or The Boy Who Cried Nuke

by : Daveparts
Friday July 27, 2007 - 17:45

We in America love to demonize our enemies, with a broad brush we paint them, the only good Indian is a dead Indian. Or during World War two, the only good Jap was a dead Jap and by the internment of Japanese Americans we reinforced that notion.

Today America demonizes it’s enemies both real and imagined with terms such as Islamofascist and narco terrorist’s. Big Brother himself would blush at the term Islamofascist, the idea that fascism which supports industry and government working in tandem while subrogating religion could ever be an Islamic goal.

The term Narco terrorist is another invention of the lie machine, the idea that narcotic’s traffickers have a political agenda’s. As screwy as the concept of every puppy wanting a little boy, but it doesn’t have to make sense. It only has to sound catchy and threatening, to make out that our adversaries are the most heinous sort of people.

But the problem with the cowboys and Indians worldview of good guys and bad guys is that pretty soon the paths converge. Soon the lie machine must praise those for the same actions it condemns in others. For example the United States recently condemned Venezuela for allowing cocaine to transit the country. While ignoring completely that the US pays out 5 billion dollars a year on plan Columbia and is unable to stop the cocaine from reaching Venezuela in the first place.

Of course the difference is the administration doesn’t like Hugo Chavez so he can never be portrayed as doing anything right. While President Uribe of Columbia even though he was twice removed from government for his close connections to the Medellin drug cartel can do no wrong. The administration condemns Hamas for firing Katucha rockets into Israel yet remains silent when Israel drops US supplied cluster munitions in Lebanon despite agreements to the contrary.

The administration condemns Iran and Korea for ignoring UN mandates while the US failed to go back to the UN to get authorization for it’s own military action in Iraq. The Administration promotes democracy by freezing Palestinian aid and assets because the Palestinians democratically elected Hamas over the Fatah party. Then when Gaza goes up in flames the administration announces it will unfreeze assets for Fatah. Imagine for a moment, if a foreign government in our next presidential election refused to work with the next elected President because of his party affiliation. Then actively work to subvert the administration while wringing it’s hands calling for peace and democracy.

The administration works for nuclear non-proliferation by trading nuclear fuel for mangos with a nation that withdrew from the nuclear non-proliferation treaty. Then threatens regime change with other nations that do exactly the same thing. Iran is investigated castigated inspected detected and all answers rejected. While 99% of the world’s population believes Osama Bin Laden has been hiding in the territorial regions of our friends in Pakistan but only recently has the US exerted any pressure on Pakistan. Not because of Bin Laden but because of the Taliban activity spilling over the border into Afghanistan. Members of the Presidents own party forcefully promote strikes on Iran even nuclear strikes. While members of the so-called opposition party equivocate with terms like only if necessary and under the right circumstances.

Let’s step back here a minute, American politicians of both parties are openly talking about attacking another sovereign nation because we accuse them of doing nothing more than the same thing half a dozen other nations are doing with which we have friendly relations. All people as individuals and nations in general are hypocritical to some degree but when we allow propaganda paranoia and politicians to call for the mass murder of innocents we are reduced to the level of savages.

Pakistan test missiles India tests missiles but when North Korea tests missiles it is labeled as aggressive. But North Korea sells missiles to foreign governments both good guys and bad guys. Why would a country without nuclear aspirations buy missiles with a nuclear capability? Wouldn’t be logical to assume someone in the market to buy cones is also in the market for ice cream?

The worst kept secret in the world is Israel’s nuclear arsenal but since they are our friends they can do no wrong. Of course that’s little consolation to those who aren’t Israel’s friends and promotes the very scenario which we had hoped to eliminate. For years the US denied any knowledge of Israel’s nuclear program while covertly and actively aiding it. We tacitly supported Israel’s attack on the Iraqi nuclear reactor outside Baghdad. On ridiculous propaganda the administration invaded Iraq on the notion that Saddam would spend billions on a nuclear weapon only to give it away to terrorists.

But Saddam was a bad guy and that’s all that matters, good guys and bad guys. So who are the Arab good guys? We’ll Kuwait of course, they are good guys they wouldn’t hurt anyone in their repressive little kingdom a few beheading here and there but they’re still good guys. The United Arab Emirates are good guys, hell we’ll let them run our ports! But the true blue good guys are our dear friends the Saudi’s and our friends can do no wrong. That’s the motto anyway, after 9-11 all of Osama Bin Laden’s relatives were rounded up and flown from the country. No need for the FBI to question them they are our friends after all.

Saudi Arabia’s clandestine purchase of long-range CSS-2 ballistic missiles (capable of delivering nuclear weapons) from China in the 1980s as an indication of Saudi ambitions to acquire nuclear weapons. Why would they buy cones if they weren’t looking to buy ice cream? In 2003 the British newspaper The Guardian alleged serious efforts on the part of the Saudis to acquire nuclear weapons. The Guardian referred to a strategy paper, supposedly considered at the highest levels in Riyadh, that set out three options for maintaining national security:

1. acquiring a nuclear capability as a deterrent; 2. maintaining or entering into an alliance with an existing nuclear power that would offer protection; and 3. trying to reach a regional agreement for a nuclear-free Middle East.

Now what happened it 2003 that might make the Saudi’s nervous? The Saudi’s are strict observers of the old motto, fool me once shame on you fool me twice and you’re name is Bush. They remembered well the doctored satellite photo’s that they were shown in 1990 purporting to show Iraqi troops massing on their border. They weren’t buying the non existent argument of WMD’s. The Saudi’s were well aware that US control of Iraqi oil could and would be used as wedge against them.

Like a game of chess, not that the bishop takes the rook but that the bishop could take the rook. Since the first gulf war US relations with the Saudi’s have grown progressively colder. Caught between the jaws of religious fundamentalism at home and an aggressive US foreign policy the Saudi’s choose the third road. Why isn’t this news? The Saudi border is closer to Israel than Washington is to New York.

Forbes magazine reported in 2006, According to Western security services, Saudi scientists have been working since the mid-1990s in Pakistan, a nuclear power since 1998.

Forbes also quoted a US military analyst, John Pike, as saying that Saudi bar codes can be found on half of Pakistan’s nuclear weapons ’because it is Saudi Arabia which ultimately co-financed the Pakistani atomic nuclear program.’

The magazine also said satellite images indicate that Saudi Arabia has set up a program in Al-Sulaiyil, south of Riyadh, a secret underground city built under a prison complex with dozens of underground silos for missiles.

According to some Western security services, long-range Ghauri-type missiles of Pakistani-origin are housed inside the silos.

Where is Fox news! Why hasn’t the President warned us about the terrorists in Riyadh? Because we don’t want to conquer the Saudi’s only to dominate them and so far the Saudi’s are pliable enough to do as they’re told. Not like the Iranians or Chavez who refuse to bend over and say thank you sir may I have another?

A Saudi bomb or Iranian bombs are not pointed at Israel, they are not weapons to use but weapons to threaten with. Israel wanted a bomb to threaten her neighbors, not that she would ever use it but as a deterrent. The Iranians want nuclear power because their oil reserves are drying up and petroleum is her only source of hard currency the weapon is just an extra benefit. Iran with a bomb would not use it any more than India or Pakistan or China, Russia or the US. They are a poison pill defense you won’t invade because and Iran fears China as much or more than she fears the US. But as each new member joins in the nuclear club it multiplies the chances for error or miscalculation.

America’s duplicitous foreign policy only exacerbates the situation. But by the US supplying nuclear materials to Israel they created a market in the Arab world. The Iraqi bomb was inspired by the Israeli bomb the Saudi bomb by Saddam’s bomb Pakistan’s bomb by India’s bomb China’s bomb by Russia’s bomb Russia’s bomb by the US bomb unto infinity.

But even more than the nuclear domino effect the scurrilous good guy bad guy foreign policy of the United States unnerves friends and scares potential adversaries who feel compelled down the path of militarism. Living in fear of a country where even the moderate politicians acknowledge an unprovoked military attack possibly even with nuclear weapons would be acceptable under the right circumstances.

The far-right in Ukraine are acting as the vanguard of a protest movement that is being reported as pro-democracy. The situation on the ground is not as simple as pro-EU and trade versus pro-Putin and Russian hegemony in the region. When US Senator John McCain dined with Ukraine’s opposition leaders in December, he shared a table and later a stage with the leader of the extreme far-right Svoboda party Oleh Tyahnybok. This is Oleh Tyahnybok, he has claimed a "Moscow-Jewish mafia" (...)

In a 2004 episode of Comedy Central’s animated series South Park, an election was held to determine whether the new mascot for the town’s elementary school would be a “giant douche” or a “turd sandwich.” Confronted with these two equally unpalatable choices, one child, Stan Marsh, refused to vote at all, which resulted in his ostracization and subsequent banishment from the town. Although this satirical vulgarity was intended as a commentary on the two (...)

PART I PART II PART III If there is one major inconsistency in life, it is that young people who know little more than family, friends and school are suddenly, at the age of eighteen, supposed to decide what they want to do for the rest of their lives.

If there is one universal question that haunts all human beings at some point in their lives, it is, “Why do we die?” Death, after all, is the great illogic. It ultimately claims all, the rich and the poor, the mighty and the small, the good and the evil. Death also has the capability to make most human pursuits—such as the quest for wealth, fame and power—vacuous and fleeting. Given this reality, I have often wondered why so many people are still willing to (...)

How much corruption can a “democracy” endure before it ceases to be a democracy? If five venal, mendacious, duplicitous, amoral, biased and (dare I say it) satanic Supreme Court “justices”—John Roberts, Samuel Alito, Antonin Scalia, Clarence Thomas and Anthony Kennedy—have their way, America will soon find out. In several previous articles for Pravda.Ru, I have consistently warned how the Supreme Court’s 2010 Citizens United decision is one of the (...)

A question I’ve frequently been asked since I began writing for Pravda.Ru in 2003 is, “Why did you become disillusioned with the practice of law?” This question is understandable, particularly since, in most people’s minds, being an attorney is synonymous with wealth and political power. I’ve always been reluctant to answer this question for fear it will discourage conscientious and ethical people from pursuing careers in the legal profession—a (...)
