Obama and his three witches have stoked a Middle Eastern cauldron

November 17, 2012

President Barack Obama, egged on by his three witches – Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations, Susan Rice, and Special Assistant to the President, Samantha Powers – intentionally destabilized the Middle East by meddling in the mis-named Arab Spring with the intent of deposing key U.S. allies, Mubarak of Egypt  and Gaddafi of Libya.  Now Obama and the three witches are reaping the predictable consequences of igniting such a bubbling cauldron of irrational hatred.

An existential dagger is now pointing at Israel, the only stable democracy in the Middle East. The Prime Minister of Israel, Binyamin Netanyahu,  fortunately has the full measure of President Obama’s lack of spine.  Pre-emptive  Israeli strikes against known enemies will provide a degree of protection that the Obama administration assuredly will not offer.

The immediate crisis, of course, emanates from the Gaza Strip, where Hamas has launched a sequence of rocket attacks on Israel, one rocket actually reaching the outskirts of  the Holy City of Jerusalem. Israeli armed forces are now marshaled and await the order of attack on the Gaza Strip.  ‘Cry, Israel, and let slip the dogs of war’.

President Morsi of Egypt now confronts the first real test for his Islamist government. Will he offer support to Israel in its quest to stamp out Hamas insurgents in the Gaza Strip?  Or will he support the militants in their assault on Israel?  If he chooses the former course of action, will he long survive as Muslim extremism sweeps across Egypt?  If he chooses the latter,  will an Obama-led United States continue to fund the Egyptian military as it intervenes to try to force Israelis into the Mediterranean Sea?

If the Middle East cauldron finally erupts into a determined effort to eliminate the State of Israel on one thing President Obama and  his three witches can bank: Armageddon will surely follow. Israel has first and second strike nuclear capability. If the existence of its people is ultimately at stake, those weapons of mass destruction will be unleashed.  The entire Middle East will return to its original desert status – only this time the massive desert will glow continuously throughout countless days and countless nights.

Read  Shakespeare, Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton, Susan Rice and Samantha Powers, and reflect on  the terrible vengeance meted out by Lord  Macduff, Thane of Fife, on the evil Lord Macbeth, Thane of Glamis and Cawdor.

Weep for what you so stupidly set in motion across the most unstable area of the globe!

Beware of getting what you ask for

February 28, 2011

The Western media has worked itself into a pro-democracy frenzy with respect to the Middle East and North Africa, though I note that it keeps its many mouths firmly shut about the People’s Republic of China, which is currently little better than the rest with regard to civil and economic rights, and which was by far  the worst in the history of mankind during the rule of Chairman Mao (some  30 million souls murdered as compared with 1,000 or so in Libya so far).

Unfortunately, the media is pretty much ignorant about the wide range of so-called ‘democracies’ that might arise half-formed out of the Middle Eastern sand. Some of these promise to be worse than the autocracies that they are pulling down. Widespread genocide is predictable as Shi’ites confront Sunnis, as the better-off confront those who are impoverished, and as the literate confront the illiterate, all armed to the teeth in pursuit of the black gold that drives their passions. The end-game may well produce tyrannies that match those of Stalin’s USSR, Hitler’s Germany and Mao’s China, rather than the Scandinavian social democracies that the Western media so eagerly praise.

The media, unfortunately, is not well-educated in such institutional niceties as the rule of law, and civil society, or in the nature of the inalienable rights to life and liberty and the imprescriptible right to property that form the basis of the United States’ Constitution. Given the ignorance of the media in 2000, when Al Gore was lionized for losing a presidential election while winning the popular vote, I am not sure that most of the U.S. media is even aware about the nature of the United States Constitution.

Blood and Oil!  That is the predictable tragedy of the crude forces now being witlessly unleashed across the Middle East. If the world escapes Armageddon, it will indeed be fortunate. If the West meddles in the region – and its leaders are straining at the leash so to do, not least because of the lure of Black Gold - then Armageddon pretty much is inevitable. At least, the media will glorify itself in its own self- destruction as it records the unfolding events for a desolate ether.
