Indeed, the classic game of one-ups-man-ship, revenge for revenge, evil for evil, to precipitate a larger humanitarian crisis, and hopefully, whimsically suggest that the West get involved in this hapless harm of civilians in the name of whatever.I hesitate that Abraham wouldn't approve. "We support.." this or that, unconditionally, lives lost on either side. I could discard them both, I think, various sides, and make no moral imperative that knits me into either side, neither the contrarian France, or the moral elites of the further West. I'd support Israel, mayhap, if they did something sensible, but I'm not parsing to wait on that eventuality. I mean, of course, the bad guys know what automatic responses will come from the morally superior West, such as funding the Bread Basket response and all, they knew that, counted on that, and what was Biden, but lead, automatically it would seem, into the stock counter responses. And the others, suggesting rage for rage, moral indignation, evil for evil, and so forth. And Wladimir is depending on the funding for his own little show. Not that he wants the territory, but that he wants to contest it, and they want to spend their money there. And we are lead by these inane narratives, into endless dissipations.
REPRINTED, (part two, same day back then...)
In securing generations of deadly hostility to come, Netanyahu has been vastly successful, moral imperative after moral imperative, and trails upon trails of dead civilians; oh how I wish their murderous whims did not snatch away American money, their little baby-killing football game, with their asses clenched in team spirit for the homeside, and no sense of recognizing at all the humanity of the other side, but to scream into the sky that they have been wronged and would have blood. Not a dollar to those bastards. Either side, both wrong, both with blood on their hands, and we are what, to pick a friend amongst the angry savages? The region has been constantly checkmating one another time on end, with only counter strikes in between, and no roadmap to peace, but maybe George W Bush making a sensible effort. So Mahmoud Abbas wasn't the best "peace-partner"; get another. Then to say Christ was a "high priest in the order of Melchizadec", when the Hebrews were no sooner to raid the land and build their own temple, pretending to still even to Melchesidec, when they would have made him kneel to their swords."Their 9/11", their cause for endless war, as if they needed a reason, of course. And its not a Western problem, even the human rights abuses in Saudi Arabia and Afghanistan, as they transition from oil barrens, to sports network executives, the entire country's economies dependent upon Western capital. This is the haphazard "system" that men like Joe Biden, John Kerry and John Bolton have participated in for decades, paying to pave over the world, other parts of the world, mostly, with their "aid packages" and "automatic sanctions". The Middle East, that bag of angry cats, is not the problem of the Western World, as we turn around so many illiterates, so many Taylor Swift fans, so much Amazon stock, and the human condition begins to curdle; I point out if the sanctions are "automatic" then we don't need a John Bolton for a soundbyte, that if we want to starve someone to death, we don't need a spokesman for it, that if we want to facilitate suffering, we can hold our heads high and know we are the best at it, the best there is at what we do.
