one man's conspiracy is another man's business plan
Tuesday, July 13, 2004 | USA vs. the World: Unbreachable Chasm, Unbridgeable Gulf
The dimesnsions of what is politely referred to as the "disconnect" between how US policy is perceived by the US voting class as opposed to the policy's victims in the Majority World, and to a lesser but uptrending extent, the US's own steadily spiraling underclass, has grown. And the spurt continues. A series of spurts.
Today, voting Americans are united across 'party' lines, divisions of 'right' and 'left,' 'liberal' and 'conservative.'
In unity they hold to be self-evident the doctrine of Manifest Destiny, the premise that the planet earth and all its wealth, its people and whatever lies below its surface, all are de facto properties of the United States, to be retained, destroyed, distributed or hoarded as the Washington warlord syndicate sees fit.
Other bedrock principles include:
It is not a war crime if committed by US forces, either official or mercenary.
Torture of adults and children is an unfortunate aspect of implementing US policy which should not be photographed, and it is permissible to say you hope it isn't true, as long as you keep paying for it.
People who are not white should be helped to become as much like white people as possible, especially if they live in other countries where they may not have a lot of examples. If possible, they should learn English, and become either Christians or western secular humanists.
Poverty is the result of an innate moral flaw, or an example of what happens when #2 is insufficiently implemented.
This is not to say that there are no differences between right and left. Differences abound. To use the current "election campaign" as an example, the shorter candidate is quite upfront for his plans for the "Greater Middle East."
The taller candidate is too, but he prefers to call it "progressive internationalist interventionism."
If there is one thing that the US voting public responds to, it is nomenclature.
While both sides agree that sending an invading force of torturers and sexual predators into a sovereign nation in order to seize its natural resources for US corporations and reduce the population as best facilitates same is the right thing to do, the tall candidate's party feels very strongly that it is important to put an "international face" on this effort by bribing other countries with a share of the war loot, while the short candidate's admirer's like the notion of the US keeping all the war loot for itself, and putting other countries who don't help it invade its target du jour on notice for invasion themselves.
The tall candidate would never consider invading those countries. If any action at all were found to be necessary, it would be only on the advice of the most noted business analysts and would take the form of the most progressive and internationalist type of intervention, and would have a multi-national face.
Obviously, these nuances are lost on those souls who find themselves on the receiving end of America's efforts. In their primitive, simple, brutish way, they stubbornly refuse to see the difference between a child sexually abused by a US gunman in an army uniform and a US gunman in a private company's uniform, or even a Frenchman in a completely different uniform manufactured in France by a French company of material of a superior quality and breathability.
The savages of the Majority World are not even sophisticated enough to see the difference between their families being murdered by criminal gangs of barbarians and dying as a result of a routine military operation aimed at stamping out suspected anti-Coalition sympathizers, even if the Coalition has a totally multinational face.
Their idea of democracy is, more often than not, likely to include the notion that they will have a say-so in their government. Clearly they are not ready for real American-style democracy, where corporations have the say-so because they know best. The Majority World is just not sophisticated enough for that.
Some, ususally terrorists, cling to their traditional tribal belief that the land of their ancestors and its natural resources belong to them, with some even taking this preposterous notion so far as to openly declare that the representatives of American corporations and its puppet regime have no right to be in "their" country at all, and actively seek to vanquish them by violent means. Their goal is to kill Americans, so supporters of both candidates can agree that they must be eliminated by any means necessary.
These views are not reconcilable. The Majority World refuses to see reason on these points, leaving America no choice but to dispatch even more gunmen to impose America's will. Everyone agrees on that, but one of the key areas of difference between the short candidate and the tall's strategy will include which corporations are best qualified to implement that imposition and reap the spoils.
As can be expected, the natives are utterly unable to perceive the advantages of one corporation over another, and remain mired in their constant wailing about their dead son, shredded daughter, miserable hovel, scrappy little crops, their crumbly old statues, as if they could appreciate art treasures!
Fortunately, the American voting public is capable of the advanced reasoning necessary to understand that the interests of American corporations must come first, for their greater good, and have the resolve to make the necessary sacrifices in order to insure that the world's wealth goes directly into US corporate coffers where it belongs, even if they differ on how to phrase the process of getting it there.
Actions like Sep 11 do not happen in a vaccuum.
Long before those hijackers ever stepped foot on the planes the damage
had been done. They were brainwashed with the same type of garbage
propaganda that is spewed from Fatwa's weblog.
Middle Eastern countries are so much more barbaric today and preAmercia than America can ever hope to be...America has only been around 230 years...who did you blame for everything before that Ductape? I am calling a Fatwa on your bullshit!
IMO - terrorist plain and simple. He is an Al queda operative who
should be put in a cage on gitmo Skinner
My favorite..."In Defense of Holocaust Deniers"
I always thought that "The Enemy Within" was just a metaphore for liberalism, that is, until I encountered Ductape Fatwa. He should be in an orange jumpsuit for sure.
peopleforchange.netductape is either a commie, al queda, or a deep cover mole
Tells you something about this asshole doesn't it. He's really serious.
I believe that DF is nothing but a Republican plant...
Ductape is a commie, a terrorist, and he drinks blood too. He drinks
Capitalist blood. He eats unborn babies too
Give me your address and I'll send you $20 and a thank-you note for taking your hatred elsewhere.
A terrorist with a sense of humor!
He ain't nuthin' but shit
inadequate, halfway house bullshit
You are a dumbass. Fuck you and your condescension about us "benighted sheeple." hamletta
Untruthful, damaging bullshit
no better than the neocons and no different than Timothy McVeigh
dailykos.coma turd in the punchbowl...if DF were Joe Hill he probably would have killed himself rather than get put to death.
A compost pile of fecundity
dailykos.comdespicable and literally mentally ill
