Human Life – Secondary to Military Targets!

July 28, 2014

Throughout human history governments (and their leaders) have viewed innocent human life as secondary to their military targets (usually physical structures) and their perceived goals of ‘security’. What kind of morality creates this mindset (which is prevalent within ‘all’ governments and ‘all’ political leaders to some extent)? Have you listened to the leaders who are now surgically bombing physical structures within the prison environment that we call GAZA? The main leader of Israel is a politician by the name of Benjamin Netanyahu. This leader seems to  hate Hamas and anyone associated with the society around the leaders of Hamas. Yet it was the Palestinian people who freely elected Hamas as their leaders! Was this ‘democracy’ in action as America has desired for every Nation? What is ‘democracy’ in reality? Where does it lead?

Benjamin Netanyahu’s rhetoric reveals that he places little moral meaning on all the civilians which he and his administration are killing via their surgical bombing and tunnel explosions. All this killing of civilians is SECONDARY (it seems) to the desire to eliminate the entity called HAMAS…and their future desire for freedom for their people. Will this type of ‘mindset’ of Netanyahu (and his advisors) create peace, tranquility, security, prosperity for Israel and the entire area which we call the Middle East? Will killing innocent civilians (by the thousands) produce security, peace, and happiness for Israel? I don’t think so! What is now emerging is another Great ‘War’ which eventually will encompass all the great powers on this planet! World War III has started and we can now witness the results daily! Get yourself ready for more killing, war, carnage, fear, and insanity!

Israel is a Nation which was mostly created by Great Britain and the United States of America in 1948…and after the prior Great War called World War II. All this was done to appease the politicians’ feelings of guilt and moral outrage…which Hitler and his gang perpetrated upon innocent civilians (and some 6 million Jews) during his reign from 1939 – 1945 (and including many Christians and other perceived outcasts of Hitler’s philosophy). The German mentality was meant to create a FINAL SOLUTION to the perceived human situation over in Europe (and especially for the Nation of Germany). Hitler and his advisors thought they could eliminate the core problems within their society by eliminating their most hated enemy (called the Jews). What were his results?

This mindset (of Hitler) was later perceived as Satanic and enemies of Hitler eventually brought his regime down (with Adolph eventually killing himself to avoid any mental/moral reflection upon his behavior). The USA has since emerged as the Great Satan (from the viewpoint of many in the Middle East) as we now desire to create so-called Democracy (our type of mob rule) for everyone on our planet! The USA emerged as the main Super Power after WW II as we created our currency (the dollar) as the main Reserve Currency for the planet (Bretton Woods). This advantage of winning WW II and acting as the Banker for the Planet allowed the USA to create its consumer prosperity, global military might, American freedom, and political hegemony over the entire planet. Today, America has reached a threshold of power, military might, and governmental control…which has allowed us to seemingly administer and govern most of the institutions created after WW II (UN, IMF, WB, WTO, NATO, etc.).

America has governed the planet mostly via the philosophy of MIGHT MAKES RIGHT and the idea that the END JUSTIFIES THE MEANS. Those who do not desire our form of democracy, values, and morality must convert or be eliminated via our military might and political hegemony. Israel is America’s primary proxy over in the Middle East and Israel’s goals and desires MOSTLY reflect those of America and those who provide America with her philosophy of domination, control, and moral rightness! Will America’s moral/political philosophy lead our World into a community of peace, security, freedom, equality, and prosperity going forward? Where is our moral/political philosophy leading us at this present moment? Life is lived within each moment of NOW. Are we (as Americans) part of the problem which has created this Might makes Right philosophy? What do you think?

How many innocent people (on this planet) have been killed by American bombs, drones, missiles, guns, and policies since WW II? What are the results of our philosophy of ‘The End Justifies the Means’ and the philosophy of ‘Might makes Right’? Are American leaders and the American people reflecting (as of today) upon our own BEHAVIOR since the end of WW II? Where has our own BEHAVIOR led us as of today? What is our financial situation as of today? What is our DEBT situation as of today? Where are our past military efforts (such as within Iraq, Afghanistan, Libya, Syria, Gaza) leading us? Are we creating freedom, peace, equality, happiness, and security for the 7 billion people on this planet? Are we the saviors for the planet given the results of our BEHAVIOR since the end of WW II? How much ‘confidence’ do Americans now place on the philosophy of our current leaders and their policies?

Is it now time for America to REFLECT upon her own philosophy, actions, and policies since our emergence as the primary Super Power upon this planet? Should the American people now reflect on what we have supported these past 75 years? What do you think? Where is America leading our planet and the 7 billion people residing upon this planet? Is it now time for some REFLECTION and some humility? Can our view of DEMOCRACY (for everyone) lead to global equality, individual freedom, peace, security, and prosperity? Is the philosophy of Democracy (for everyone) actually leading to Dictatorships? Keep in mind that our primary Founding Father of America (Thomas Jefferson) viewed the philosophy of DEMOCRACY as a type of MOB RULE (where 51% of the uninformed people elect their own form of dictatorship)! Human nature (within the 51% of voters) is usually rather selfish, uninformed, unaware, and desirous of more ‘goodies’ from the public treasury!

My personal sense is that America is bankrupt, the Congress is polarized, the President is unable to lead, and the American people are mostly uninformed and complacent! This means that our Nation is in serious trouble and our future (Democracy for everyone) is a ‘pipe dream’ which can not be realized nor is it realistic! Our philosophy of ‘The End Justifies the Means’ and Might makes Right’ is totally opposite to what we really need for any meaningful progress going forward! There is no hope going forward given the complacent attitude and the systemic corruption now evident within all our leaders and all our institutions. Our scientific, religious, educational, and philosophical communities are also now totally corrupted and inefficient. The END of AMERICA is emerging given our current SITUATION! What do you think?

    WASHINGTON — Israel accepts an Egyptian-proposed Gaza cease-fire; Hamas keeps firing. Hamas deliberately aims rockets at civilians; Israel painstakingly tries to avoid them, actually telephoning civilians in the area and dropping warning charges, so-called roof knocking.

    “Here’s the difference between us,” explains the Israeli prime minister. “We’re using missile defense to protect our civilians and they’re using their civilians to protect their missiles.”

    Rarely does international politics present a moment of such moral clarity. Yet, we routinely hear this Israel-Gaza fighting described as a morally equivalent “cycle of violence.” This is absurd. What possible interest can Israel have in cross-border fighting? Everyone knows Hamas set off this mini-war. Everyone knows Hamas’ proudly self-declared raison d’etre: the eradication of Israel and its Jews.

    Apologists for Hamas attribute the bloodlust to the Israeli occupation and blockade. Occupation? Does no one remember anything? It was less than 10 years ago that worldwide television showed the Israeli army pulling diehard settlers off synagogue roofs in Gaza as Israel uprooted its settlements, expelled its citizens, withdrew its military and turned every inch of Gaza over to the Palestinians. There was not a soldier, not a settler, not a single Israeli left in Gaza.

    There was no blockade. On the contrary, Israel wanted this new Palestinian state to succeed. To help the Gaza economy, Israel gave the Palestinians its 3,000 greenhouses that had produced fruit and flowers for export. It opened border crossings and encouraged commerce.

    The whole idea was to establish the model for two states living peacefully and productively side by side. No one seems to remember that simultaneous with the Gaza withdrawal, Israel dismantled four smaller settlements in the northern West Bank as a clear signal of Israel’s desire to leave the West Bank too and thus achieve an amicable two-state solution.

    How did the Gaza Palestinians react to being granted by the Israelis what no previous ruler, neither Egyptian, nor British, nor Turkish, had ever given them — an independent territory? First, they demolished the greenhouses. Then they elected Hamas. Then, instead of building a state with its attendant political and economic institutions, they spent the better part of a decade turning Gaza into a massive military base, brimming with terror weapons, to make ceaseless war on Israel.

    Where are the roads and rail, the industry and infrastructure of the new Palestinian state? Nowhere. Instead, they built mile upon mile of underground tunnels to hide their weapons and, when the going gets tough, their military commanders. They spent millions importing and producing rockets, launchers, mortars, small arms, even drones. They deliberately placed them in schools, hospitals, mosques and private homes to better expose their own civilians. And from which they fire rockets at Jerusalem and Tel Aviv.

    Why? The rockets can’t even inflict serious damage, being almost uniformly intercepted by Israel’s Iron Dome anti-missile system. Even West Bank leader Mahmoud Abbas has asked: “What are you trying to achieve by sending rockets?”

    It makes no sense. Unless you understand, as a Washington Post editorial explained, that the whole point is to draw Israeli counterfire.

    This produces dead Palestinians for international television. Which is why Hamas perversely urges its own people not to seek safety when Israel drops leaflets warning of an imminent attack.

    To deliberately wage war so that your own people can be telegenically killed is indeed moral and tactical insanity.

    It’s to the Israelis’ credit that amid all this madness they haven’t lost their moral scruples. Or their nerve. Those outside the region have the minimum obligation, therefore, to expose the madness and speak the truth. Rarely has it been so blindingly clear.

      Richard: My new blog will focus on the philosophy of Might makes Right. I will also focus on why behavior is a result of one’s mindset. If politicians want events to change for the positive then we need politicians with a different mindset. The mindset of Might makes Right and The End Justifies the Means (which American and Israel have chosen since the end of WW II) is a philosophy which leads directly to Armageddon! Think about the mindset of our leaders and the consequences resulting from this mindset. There is cause and effect within our spiritual/physical Universe. D

    While have to some degree, agree with your views on monetary issues, your credibility as a objective reviewer of world affairs, in particular the conflict in Gaza is asinine. I am no admirer of Israel as I still am bitter over their attack on the USS Liberty, but it is clear that Hamas has the destruction of Israel as their sole reason for existence. After the elimination of Jews they next go after Christians.

    Richard: I think your view is typical of most thinking Americans and Western pundits. I, however, see it differently. We need to go to the core of the issue: the establishment of the Nation of Israel in 1948. Why did we (Britain and USA) create this Nation of ethnic Jews in the first place? This is the insanity which Arabs and many current non-Zionists recognize. There is a growing block of cultural Jews which see through the insanity of the 1948 creation. Hitler killed ethnic Jews as he viewed them as slime and culturally corrupting for the human race. His final solution centered on killing off those that he (and his elite thinkers) thought corrupted the human race. Are you aware of this? We need to understand the origin of the issues. First principles create the aftermath situation! Today, we have a Nation, called Israel, which was never accepted by the masses (Arabs and Persians) who occupied this territory for millenia. Are you aware that first principles are the key to today’s insanity? What the Nation of Israel is now doing (killing innocent civilians…called human shields) is not justified as a military strategy IMO. The issue of Hamas is secondary to the issue of human life and the innocent children which are being slaughtered in the name of Hamas and their human shields. Israel has killed some 1000 innocent human beings and some 6000 are wounded from their military actions. Is this going to lead to peace and accommodation from their so-called enemies? I don’t think so! Do you favor a WW III as a solution to this insanity? D

      You only need to look to the actions of ISIS in Iraq to the Christian population to see what the people who have the view as Hamas to see how they slaughter and rape inoncent Christians in the areas they control. Why do you (as do many Western “leaders”) choose to ignore the plight the genocide of Christians in Iraq ?

        I fully agree, Richard. The blight of the Christians in Mosul is shameful. Radical Islam, however, is exclusive and this mindset is what creates the behavior. Read my latest blog on behavior – a result of one’s mindset. D
