initial data available so far reveals the dirtiness of U.S.-British
warmongers, the fakeness of their claims about a clean war,
as well as their indifference to the lives of innocent, unarmed
Iraqi civilians." The indictment comes, not from Baghdad
or Kuala Lumpur, but from the Foreign Minister of Switzerland.
Calmy Rey, of the ruling Socialist Democratic Party, explained
that her country has an obligation to document war crimes as
"a founder and a sponsor of the Geneva Convention."
entire globe is recoiling from the United States, a planetary
phenomenon that will characterize the historical period we have
now entered - if humanity survives it. In declaring war against
international order, the Pirates at the helm of the Hyper-Power
have profoundly frightened every economic and social sector
of every nation on the globe. In self-defense, the world will
be forced to reorganize itself, to create new mechanisms of
trade and security in place of the institutions that the Bush
men are deliberately savaging. The Americans will be left out
of these arrangements.
realization dawns on the assaulted consciousness of humanity
that the would-be rulers and their society are worse
than monstrously destructive - they are delusional, a
danger to civilized endeavor, untrustworthy in any agreement,
contemptuous of law and reason. A nation and people to be avoided,
circumvented, conspired against for safety and survival's
are the first days of the inevitable and soon to become dramatic
decline of the United States. In what will be viewed as a supreme
irony of history, the dream of a glorious and bloody leap to
global omnipotence will collapse in incompetence and self-mutilation
- not this year or the next, and not in time to save millions
from death, disease, impoverishment and national humiliation.
But it will happen, because the nations and peoples of the world
will see no choice available to themselves but to make it happen.
need not have been so. With the role of protector against an
extinct Soviet Union long redundant, the United States' favored
position in the world is based on the size of its economy and
the unique role of the dollar as the sole denominator of oil
prices - an artificial support. Over time, the growing strength
of the European euro currency would have provided alternatives
to banks and national treasuries that sought to diversify their
holdings. The dollar's value would have shrunken, gradually,
but without great drama.
share of fossil fuel consumption could have been brought under
control in collaboration with developed and developing nations,
to guard against undue harm to the economies of all while alternative
energy sources were brought on line - to the profit of innovative
capital in the most developed nations such as the United States.
this was not to be. The Pirate class personified by Bush, Dick
Cheney and Richard Perle has no stake in the domestic economy
of the United States or the stabilizing institutions of the
world. They war against order, to transform the American military
machine into a pirate armada to amass wealth through plunder.
They are not really capitalists in the "normal" sense,
at all. They "invest" in elections to seize control
of state mechanisms to facilitate domestic crimes with impunity
and terrorize the world militarily. And they award themselves
contracts for that, too.
Pirates operate within and are the products of a society made
delusional through centuries of racist plunder. The most afflicted
products of this society cannot recognize facts at variance
with the racist imperatives of Manifest Destiny. They cannot
negotiate because they are effectively blind to the humanity
of others. Objectively incompetent at analysis of non-whites
and only imagining the characteristics of foreign whites, they
launch wars against "enemies" whom they cannot properly
assess, with a cavalier cruelty that the civilized world reserves
for animals. They have no sense of guilt because in their worldview
they are the embodiment of good. Their wealth and power appear
to confirm their self-assessment.
frustrated by actual facts and peoples they escalate with fury
and bewilderment, like an armed sleepwalker awakening in a crowd.
They do great damage and feel harmed by their victims. But they
cannot win in any protracted struggle, because they truly do
not understand their surroundings or the people they have made
antagonists - or even the Swiss, who are said to love order
and prosperity most of all.
wired world is taking note of every pathological tick in the
twisted American face. Even now, a myriad of plans are evolving
to sidestep the dangerous, delusional United States as mankind
goes about its collective business. A kind of international
redlining will increasingly make itself felt, but not seen.
The Bush men believe they are willing into existence a New American
Century, while in reality they are creating an America-phobic
planet in which the U.S. has earned an invisible but powerfully
consequential non-favored nation status. Having invented the
concept of globalism, the United States will be consigned to
pariah status - and shrink, until it learns to live by human
norms and scales.
