The “Calling of Our Generation” and the “Struggle for Civilization”

B18360 / Mon, 11 Sep 2006 12:00:29 / “War on Terror”

I spent this past weekend and Monday’s fifth anniversary of the September eleventh attacks in relative solitude contemplating the chain of events following 9/11 and subsequent changes in the opinions of friends, family and fellow Americans impacted by these events.

What I find most disheartening is that though the majority of Americans now recognize as fact that the war in Iraq was initiated on false pretense and that the invasion and subsequent occupation of Iraq was then and remains illegal, no effective antiwar movement has formed to end this military adventure.

Collectively we lack the political will and courage of our convictions to stand up for the truth of the matter and alter our own destinies through the supposed democratic process alleged to exist here in America.

President Bush, Vice President Cheney, Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld remain in power and continue to lecture the American public on the critical importance and moral justification for the “war on terror” against the “Islamofascist” extremists.

“Winning in Iraq”, Orwellian speak for continuing the illegal and immoral occupation of Iraq for the sake of “Iraqi security” and “reconstruction” is as much a lie as were the alleged “weapons of mass destruction” that were used to initially justify the military conquest of Iraq’s hydrocarbon reserves.

The invasion and continuing occupation of Iraq is the moral equivalent of raping an individual then holding them hostage until they become a complacent and obedient slave, albeit on an international scale.

Each month scores of young Americans are maimed and killed battling determined insurgencies in both Iraq and Afghanistan attempting to dislodge their foreign occupiers.

Billions of dollars of borrowed national treasure are squandered.

With but 56 days remaining until the mid-term elections, no mandate for withdrawal or effective political movement to pressure those in Congress to act decisively to end these military adventures has been formed.

Recent reports of progress in the multinational negotiations over the Iranian nuclear program have temporarily quieted the drum beat for the inevitable war and occupation of Iran; but once the election results have been tabulated and those in power are assured of remaining, this issue is sure to re-emerge to the limelight.

The true “calling of our generation” must become securing our future by virtue of true energy independence through both conservation and the wise implementation of existing technologies; and if we are to truly win “the struggle for civilization” we must first remove from power the barbarians that are abusing our military preeminence for the conquest of hydrocarbon wealth in the Persian Gulf and the pursuit of global economic domination.

“Axis of Evil”, indeed.

Justice, then Peace.

Most recognize that it was started on false pretences, the overwhelming majority think the war in Iraq, what you wrongly called the occupation, is legal.

Americans do not like anti-war movements, because they don’t like the messengers who make up the movement, they don’t like what they have to say. So they just remain stubborn patriots.

Each month scores of young Americans are maimed and killed battling determined insurgencies in both Iraq and Afghanistan attempting to dislodge their foreign occupiers. Billions of dollars of borrowed national treasure are squandered.

The majority of Americans do not want to give up fighting just because it is hard. They want to d what happens to be right. You seem to say, Americans want to quit cause it is too hard. That seems to be your argument. If 20 million Americans died and 50 million maimed, we would still fight. Numbers are not relevant. We will fight until final victory and not a day before.

And by the way, you made an error. The terrorist gangs in Iraq and Afghanistan do not fight to dislodge an occupier. After all the foreign forces over there are trying to help the local people. The terrorists are religious fanatics fighting for their twisted view of Islam. They want control over their own people, they want Sharia law and they want to capture the long lost glory of Islamic warrior armies. It is not going to happen, but the Islamo-fascist don’t know it yet. They actually think that the Allah is real and will give them victory one day. They are just stupid people who will have to be stopped by force. Sorry to break the news to you. Don’t blame me, I am naught but the

The foreign occupiers are there to help the American and British multi-national oil companies eventually extract the hydrocarbon wealth from beneath the sands of Iraq.

At today’s oil prices, this wealth amounts to nearly 1/4 million dollars for each and every citizen of Iraq.

Be realistic. This has nothing to do with “helping” the Iraqi locals, it has everything to do with helping ourselves to the hydrocarbon resources of Iraq at a substancial discount from what would have been the prevailing market prices in the coming decades.

Justice, then Peace.
