As the chaos cranks up in order to produce fog...the fog of yet another unprovoked attack on a non-belligerent nation, I’m enjoying my personal peace dividend.
The MIC has lost control of its combine, for sure. I don’t mind saying I told you so. I’m guessing the oligarchs are packing, or already in their bunkers, elsewhere...certainly not Iran, all their elite are long gone. Brain drain is a amazing phenomenon. Smart, wealthy people move on, early on.
The MIC will paperclip itself out, no doubt, but I’m not so sure this play will be as easy as the pre and post WWII one. The Oligarchs got their underground mansions...but the rest of us? We are going to get stuck with the bill for American Fascism. This world is very small.
I’m fearlessly optimistic that we have the chaos contained, and these Iran and Venezuela deals are old scores, being settled...the wrong way. This tired routine is long dead, and dead wrong.
I’m opposed to state sponsored religion and religious states. I can make the case without scorched earth, or even blisters. I’ve had blisters, big ones from flip flops in Tijuana...in 2000, Late June. I’ve had a bloody blowout in a first class toilet, eight miles high...bleeding like a stuck pig, mid May 1992.
There does not have to be blood, ever. We failed to prosecute the perpetrators of the Iraq wars...We have what we have; chaos.
We will sustain three times the losses, over time, that our poorly reasoned actions have created in the field. We are not secure, and targeting is so much better than ever. The scales will be balanced. All ground is sacred.
I’m speaking directly to the MIC, my family, my community. This is our Gorbachev moment. Mark these words. There is a way out, and that way is to fold, and play the next hand mostly intact. I say mostly because we owe, and we will pay; you and I will pay. We will pay and survive or far worse.
The whole world is watching, and has been for quite a while. Gorbachev is watching. The Soviet Trump Card has been played, or in play since before Ronald Reagan spoke his New World Order lines...We have been led into, at best, a draw, and the world awaits our next move.
Mine? My next move? My next move is the same everyday:
Strength Through Peace
Im no Gambler, but I like the lyrics now.
“To have seen once is better than to have heard a million times”
We need a new flag. One that does not condone Genocide or Slavery...or attempt to run the world. I’d be happy to fly it...proud to fly it.
I love this place...I love Justice and Truth. We need to get beyond American Fascism...now, and heal ourselves and a wounded planet. This is my best thinking. Now I’m going to enjoy my personal peace dividend, and wait and see, fearlessly optimistic that we can do better...the kids can do better, because it’s their turn. I’m watching.
