If one thinks about it seriously, the world looks like a bizarre place. Scientific strides and technological developments make us think and believe that we are living in the “genteel” and “civilized” 21st century. Few can argue about the scientific and industrial progress in all fields of physical applications and material evolution.
If one thinks about it seriously, the world looks like a bizarre place. Scientific strides and technological developments make us think and believe that we are living in the “genteel” and “civilized” 21st century. Few can argue about the scientific and industrial progress in all fields of physical applications and material evolution. Who can argue against automotive transportation or laser manipulations, for example? Nano-technology and medical research, satellites and submarines, the refrigerator and air-conditioner, and a whole line of products can be used to raise the standard of living, provided that the use of technology is done with human-nature as its reference point. We do not want to go on and on heralding the breakthroughs of science and its applications. We think you get the point…
But then we look around and realize that humanity — the same humanity that is enjoying its technological civilization — is living in political and social wilderness. The nation-states of the world are for all practical purposes akin to wild animals: they prey on the poor and annihilate the innocent. Some of them behave like pigs that devour their own piglets when they turn against their own citizens. Some of these nation-states are like foxes: they will do anything they can to trick others into wars and long lasting antagonisms. There are political beasts in every government — from the chief executive all the way down to the puny bureaucrat. It is not an exaggeration to say that the political jungle of the world has its dinosaurs, terrestrial reptiles, cyclopses, dragons, and vampires. In many instances, the most advanced technologically are the most retarded politically.
The best demonstration of this is the imperialist ogre, otherwise known as the United States government. This political pedophile and military monster is making a living out of demonizing Islam, dehumanizing Muslims, and attacking Muslims in their countries and even in their bedrooms. It has its scrofulous sight nowadays set on Islamic Iran. If there were no animal instinct in official Washington, why would it now have a third aircraft carrier stationed in the Persian Gulf? Its amphibious assault ships are like sharks waiting for a kill! And the 10,000 US combat personnel on the waters of the Persian Gulf await the Pentagon’s orders to disrupt the lives of millions of average people going about their everyday life in that region of the world. Military personnel on the USS Nassau, USS Mesa Verde, and USS Ashland are equipped for instantaneous landing, special operations behind enemy lines, and in all likelihood “special operations” units who may be called upon for “classified assignments.”
There are at least 6 vertical take-off AV-HB Harrier attack planes, as well as several AH-1W Super Cobras, 12 CH-46 Sea Knight and CH-53 Sea Stallion helicopters. There are also choppers convertible to fast V-22 Osprey planes having the capability of landing virtually anywhere. The USS Harry S. Truman Strike Group consisting of 12 warships is plying the Arabian Sea, mostly opposite the Islamic Revolutionary Guard’s Base of Chah Bahar, near the Iran-Pakistan border. Add to that further westward in the Arabian Sea is the USS Dwight D. Eisenhower Strike Group. There is definitely a monster in Washington — with evil on its mind! And this is only a snapshot of a larger and still growing American military presence in and around the heartland of Islam which includes multiple rings of military bases: army, air-force, and navy all around the Islamic Republic. In a jungle like this, wouldn’t anyone with common-sense think about protecting their country and defending their citizens? Would any rational person in the world blame the Islamic Republic of Iran for its military industries and military technologies? In such circumstances, you have to be suicidal not to think about self-defense and state security.
All of the loudmouths in the mainstream media who are talking about Iran becoming an “existential threat” to Israel are leaving out 90% of the facts. It is not Iran that is a threat to the region and the world; it is the maniacs of Zion who are a threat to regional peace and world security. The Israeli top-gun Netanyahu vows that Iran will not be allowed to establish an outpost on Israel’s borders. We have news for you: the Muslims of the world will not be satisfied with just an outpost on Israel’s borders — they want and will have an outage of Isra-hell altogether. The Islamic giant is rising in this imperialist-Zionist jungle. The Zionist wolves are growling; Israel is becoming a Zionist zoo. And you ain’t heard nothing yet… The more Islamic blood that Israel spills, the more Islamic fighters will be born. If you thought that Hizbullah is a threat to the Israeli savage, wait until recruits begin coming in from all over the Muslim world — from the far east to the far west, from the northern polar region to the southern polar region of the planet. This is the tide of the future. There is no turning the clock back. Open your eyes and look carefully: is the world taking the shape of those who want to continue the status quo of the jungle — imperialist America and Zionist Israel in the forefront — or those who want to create a new tomorrow where humans have the liberty and dignity endowed upon them by their Creator — the Law-Giver and Merciful — led by the Islamic State in Iran and the Islamic Movement in the world?
Iraq and Afghanistan will be remembered as the two battlefields that defanged the imperialist-Zionist beast. Putting aside the illusions of a Hollywood/mass-media monopoly over the airwaves and information sources the fact of the matter is that the Islamic Republic of Iran wields more influence in Iraq than does the American imperium. After “I’m a Zionist” Joe Biden arrived in Iraq over the American 4th of July weekend, Baghdad’s Green Zone, which is supposed to be secured by the American leviathan was rattled with five mortar rounds and the cry “duck and cover.” This maximum security area that houses the one billion dollar, 100-acre US embassy-industrial complex — the world’s largest — cannot be shielded from the anti-Zionist and anti-imperialist salvos for justice coming from a Muslim population that will never cower to the illegitimate political siblings of the Zionist-imperialist Frankenstein.
Just a couple of decades ago, the Muslims of the world were willing to give the USA the benefit of the doubt. Not any longer. The government of the US is now evil incarnate. It is not hyperbole to say that two billion Muslims in the world concede the inevitability of a military showdown with the democracy-cum-military regime in Washington that has spread itself into all corners of the Islamic world with its military bases and corporate interests at the expense of one third of humanity, at least! When the US says, as an echo of the Israeli enemy, that it cannot live with an Iranian bomb while it lived with a Soviet bomb and a Chinese bomb, when the US says such things it proves that its hatred for Muslims and Islam is much more virulent than it was towards Marxists and Communism.
And then, as if to add insult to injury, we had the United Arab Emirates ambassador to the US come out and say what has always been concealed in official Arabdom, “A military attack on Iran by whomever would be a disaster, but Iran with a nuclear weapon would be a bigger disaster.” How did this ignoramus become an ambassador? Well, I take that back; it is the advanced buffoonery of such individuals that qualify them to become ambassadors. The diplomatic corps of the Arabian nation-states are stacked with equivalent morons. In this particular case and in the relaxed atmosphere of Aspen, Colorado, his Excellency the ambassador may have had just one shot too many. Usually such official socialites are loosened up to drop their pants behind closed doors; but in this case the ambassador dropped his jaws.
Even when we shift our attention away from the military jungle we wind up watching animals living in a political and social jungle. Greek mythology lives on in the Zionist-imperialist strategy as they prepare for the clash of the titans.
This time though, contrary to their infatuation with their behemoth military buildup, David will, once again, slay Goliath.
