(as a moderate, am I allowed to hate?)
bugger it … I hate!
as in ‘being manipulated’—
Listening to Trump and Secretary of State, Rex Tillerson, blast Iran as the font of terrorism provided another big joke. Trump’s tirade against Tehran was delivered in Saudi Arabia, a feudal monarchy that holds no elections, cuts off the heads of some 80-90 people annually, and treats women like cattle.
All good clean fun so far—boys will be boys, no? And so long as they don’t interfere with me or mine, I really don’t give a fundamental.
While claiming to be the leader of the Muslim world, the Saudi royal family funds mayhem and extreme Muslim obscurantism through the region. The current wave of primitive violence by some self-professed Muslims – ISIS being the leader – was originally funded and guided by the Saudis in a covert struggle to combat revolutionary Iran. I saw this happen in Afghanistan and Pakistan. Let’s recall 15 of the 18 men who attacked the US on 9/11 were Saudis.
Oooooh~! A low blow, indeed, mentioning that ‘nine-eleven’ thing. A bit like we need a new law, same-same as Godwin’s Law only different?
Iran has the freest political system in the Mideast except for Israel). Iranian women have rights and political freedoms that are utterly unknown in Saudi Arabia. Iran just held a fair and open national election in which moderates won. Compare this to Saudi Arabia’s medieval Bedouin society. I was once arrested by the religious police in Jeddah just for walking down a street with an Egyptian lady.
the Iranians are no paragons of western virtue either—their cute habit of jellifying the bones of sinners’ feet for goofing where being a good Muslim is concerned is a bit disconcerting, but I think I’d prefer them to the Saudis—but any religious nutcase is a cause for alarm and here we have America taking sides with the most nuttiest fruitcakes on the planet. Not good.
another wee snippet to foul your eyes on—
Today, US and British equipped Saudi forces are laying waste to wretched Yemen, the Arab world’s poorest nation. As a result of a Saudi air, land and sea blockade, the UN now reports that famine has gripped large parts of Yemen. US and British technicians are keeping the Saudi air force flying; the US and Britain supply the bombs.
—and ask yourselves, what is going on?
Other than I am finally becoming just a wee bit racist, and learning not to fret if bloody Islamics kill each other in the tens of thousands or even millions—why are the Americans and British and stuff doing these things? Really, it’s an honest questio— oh!
Yes, I see … if we don’t, them foul and filthy Russkies will take over the world. It’s all so simple when you put it like that …
but do you really think the f&f Russkies actually want and really intend to do that?
OR ARE WE
being manipulated? Don’t ask, don’t go down that track—people look at you funny if you ask things like that. Don’t ask, just get out there and wave that flag, Boy!
Bugger … where are the marshmallows when ya need ’em?
Don’t fret … it all comes to the same thing in the end anyway.
Boom boom! (And as taxpayer—you are funding them …)(That’s what comes of being a blasted moderate …)
