Alone

leave a comment »

alieno2Desperate to climb a greasy pole, Netanuts says: “Ladies and gentlemen, Israel will never acquiesce to nuclear arms in the hands of a rogue regime that repeatedly promises to wipe us off the map. Against such a threat, Israel will have no choice but to defend itself […] I want there to be no confusion on this point. Israel will not allow Iran to get nuclear weapons. If Israel is forced to stand alone, Israel will stand alone.” (Source Ha’aretz, Oct. 8, 2013)
Well.
1. Any similar offensive (against an imaginary threat) is the equivalent of a war of aggression. Otherwise the world could be and will be blackmailed by any psychopath at choice.
2. In this respect, the buffoon wouldn’t be able to surpass a Nuremberg-style process, nor any process. Insofar as the old claim about “wiping-someone-off-the-map” is a blatant lie, a plain scrutiny of reality, reports, facts and some 70 million Iranians, should be enough to nail either the warmongering clown and its unfortunate supporters. Even in the USA. (Syria docet.)
3. From a general point of view, Israeli acquiescence on anything is clearly (and morally) so much relevant as the amount of its citizens compared with the world population and their welfare (aproximately, 1/1000.)
4. Someone should suggest that, in the end, one thing is stand alone, another is stay alone.

Humbly our voice

leave a comment »

I’ve read, and I know that “the world” has forgotten Syria for two years. That’s correct, but there ain’t anything as “the world”. There’s people, and we can only work on them. On us.
Not taking a position is tantamount to side with the oppressor. We know this very well, inasmuch as we’ve behaved like this (mainly from our safe living rooms) for so long, without a shiver for the slaughters that were happening all over the outside world.
Let’s not lie, today.
We’ve watched entire peoples being torn apart, notwithstanding any evident injustice. Seldom, we’ve taken side for the one or the other just as we would do looking at a soccer match.
But from the safety of our homes, well hardly we have the right to express our thoughts. For sure we are not entitled to yell (from outside, just as somewhat delegates combatants, from a distance, into a foreign war) the rights and the wrongs of one or the other, insofar as we are well away from the blood and neither with brain nor with soul we are able to perceive and evaluate what is happening. And the media just keep on adding new lies to old ones.
Now, are we really able to estimate that a US strike will lead to any better? If we are obviously not willing to support a murderous dictator (for such he is) how can we trust a long since designed US/Israel further invasion of the Middle East towards the next war of aggression on Iran? Are we ready to claim the good faith of one party – considered as a whole – against the bad faith of the other? Are we willing to be fooled, once again, by mandate of the imperial war machine? For the umpteenth time, by the way, in the last 10 years?
I fear we’re not. Nor we are able to assess our good faith, in this case, while we have failed to be honest in tens of other occasions.
There’s so little we can give to the people of Syria, maybe our heart, humbly our voice in the arena among the nations, some concrete humanitarian help, food, welcome and accomodation. Certainly not our powerful weapons, nor our inconsistent advice.

Side effects (excerpt, Monday Nov 28, 2005)

leave a comment »

lostThere are no side effects possibly acceptable of the war. Indeed, as for drugs, it doesn’t exist such a thing as side effects, but, be they prosecuted or not, only effects. Effects certain, or only possible, probable and/or incidental.
On the one hand, the first intuitive, undeniable effects of the war are the dead, the destruction, suffering, despair.
On the other hand, incidental and uncertain are all the other possible effects connected to objectives presented from time to time as apparently reasonable, such as the fight on terrorism, whatever this term is meant to indicate (and I was inclined to consider it, in the Iraqi case, as the “deadly and indiscriminate instrument of resistance of the weaker”), and anxiety or presumption of safety and all kind of preventive actions; questionable, such as the maintenance or achievement of a demanded precarious planetary balance; presumptuous or uncritical, as the defense of the “Western values​​” and the presumed civilization that would accompany them; vile and murderous, such as the forced maintenance of military control and economic exploitation of a territory through the power of the weapons, which aim at grabbing the resources, also in terms of strategy, of a particular region.

Waiting for the vulture

leave a comment »

greedWhat is happening is disgusting, subsumed in a nutshell: the international vultures have not yet figured out which one and how can sink its fangs into the little Syrian meat.
But the conditional proclamations of the last hour (Syria would be in 4th place in the world to possess chemical weapons), remind me of others not so old proclamations on Iraq and its alleged “4th army in the world.” And this makes me think, once again, that the filibusters that are slowly puzzling to find a way to make money and take advantage (also) of this human tragedy, won’t be “better” than the ones that this tragedy are causing.
And certainly I am not heartened by the fact that the murderess regime that is violating millions of lives and the unjust suffering of an entire people who is struggling in the ambiguity of fratricidal struggles does not actually contribute to worsen the human component, carcinogenic, of this planet.
But all we can do and think of right now, waiting for the worst, is to forget the principles and theories. If one is bleeding to death or he’s hungry or thirsty, I don’t impose him a lesson in international diplomacy, nor teach him to work to procure the necessary, I hand him a piece of bread and maybe I wait for nightfall with him, so that he does not face his fears alone.

Build the witch (recipe)

leave a comment »

strega_ww2Just wait the opportunity. If it takes too long, well, think of something. Then quickly choose the darkest character on the stock market (Osama will fit.) Once built the personified evil, take him from the pay roll of CIA to the caves of Afghanistan, and inject it into the western brain. Wait, and in the meanwhile do whatever you want, cause it’s a jungle out there.
If something cools down, add salt or anthrax (at need, take even the fool of the village. I say, stuff like Zarqawi, in the meanwhile, a meteor.) When you’re done, cast the puppet into a cottage in Pakistan or elsewhere, kill and serve it hot. In pictures though, better if in writing. Well, I don’t know, make a film or something.
Don’t forget to throw the remains of the witch into the rubbish bin – oops – into the realm of a foggy myth. Once she has egregiously done her job, she’s finished, fired, burned. Supper is over. Let her live, be submitted to trial or just show her corpse would be at least inappropriate. Think of what comes next.
