Pepe Eacobar: Daesh and the West's Solid Stench of Death

Whenever the West's formidable military machine adds to its tragic litany of "collateral damage" – in Libya, Yemen, Somalia, the tribal areas in Pakistan – silence reigns. No Muslim full names on front pages. 
Whenever NATO-GCC proxies add to their own tragic litany of premeditated massacres – across Syria, across Iraq – the perpetrators are excused because they're "our," "moderate" rebels and freedom fighters. 
This inexorable, perverse, logic won't be altered. Now with a twist, because President Trump has explained to a startled world, via his Islamophobe speechwriter Stephen Miller, it's all Iran's fault. 
Trump professed his faith while swearing over a glowing orb nestled in Riyadh, the alma mater of all forms of Wahhabi or Salafi-jihadi terror. 
And he professed his faith after he had just sold a multi-billion dollar fresh batch of weapons to the bling House of Saud totalitarian theocrats. 
These weapons will be used by the House of Saud to wipe Yemen off the face of the earth; deepen a Sunni-Shi'ite fratricide war on all fronts, and further enable their handpicked "freedom fighters" in ? 
It's never enough to repeat, over and over again, that Daesh and the House of Saud are both cadaverous faces of the same Medusa-stamped coin; totalitarian theocracy, implementable by jihad. 
The strategy has been fine-tuned in Sirte, Libya, in the Sinai mountains, and now across "Syraq." Because the privileged battleground, from now on, is infidel European lands.  
Those few left to die for the cause in Mosul pose a different problem. Documents found at Mosul University detailed a crude chemical weapons program, developed in loco, including experiments with nerve agents on prisoners. One needs specialists to conduct such experiments – and many may be Westerners. Where are they? They have been smuggled deep inside the middle of nowhere "Syraq" desert between Deir Ezzor and al-Qaim.

Daesh and the West's Solid Stench of Death

I never thought I would see such evil coming from the West. I saw films about WWII and Hitler. But I thought such a maniac would never happen here in the Anglo Saxon world, the English and the Americans, because we're always the good guys. Its seems intrinsic in children to view your own side as good, because maybe it makes them feel safe in a dangerous world. But it seems that for children as they grow up this is hard to shake off, so people prefer to think Putin is bad. But when you finally realise your own side is evil to the core, it's frightening.

My girlfriend is clueless about of all of this and I don't usually tell her, but if I do say anything she just says that I've been on the internet again. I sometimes copy and paste what I've put out above and send it off to friends, but they never reply. It's just another world to them. They think I'm crazy.

"Our society is run by insane people for insane objectives. I think we're being run by maniacs for maniacal ends and I think I'm liable to be put away as insane for expressing that. That's what's insane about it." ~ John Lennon

Congratulations, Kaivey. You are awake.

Cor, did John Lennon say that? He knew.

I saw a documentary a few years back which I'm dubious about putting out here because it's full of conspiracy theories, or is it, some are, some are not? Conspiracy theories, or not, one thing it did drive home was how war was big business. The film said that WW2 went on for 5 years because the ruling elite were making a ton of money out of it. They also wanted Germany to attack communist Russia.

Now look at the ME, and the ruling elite are making a packet out of that too.

I sent the above to George Monbiot of the Guardian. I've contacted him about 5 times now with this sort of stuff. I ask him why is there no real news in the media. He's not that stupid, he must know what's going on. He never replies. Maybe he thinks I'm a left wing agitator, he probably gets plenty of that. But my hunch is, though, he feels helpless to do anything.

Do you believe in the 'myth of progress', Kaivey?

Kaivey said...

I did.

It was interesting.
