Machismo, eh?

I don't know where you will find statistics on machismo. A good estimate of porn searches is at http://www.forbes.com/sites/julieruvolo/2011/09/07/how-much-of-the-internet-is-actually-for-porn/ . It's considerable. Considering that "proper" Islamic dress involves turning women into formless drapes of fabric, the vast majority of Internet depictions of women would be considered sexually arousing. I would say, it probably takes something of a "sick" person NOT to be aroused by the likes of, say, Kate Upton in a bikini. It seems disingenuous to me, to say that Muslims don't see this sort of thing as a continual cultural assault; but then that's only my opinion, for what it's worth.

Machismo? That doesn't appeal to me much. Maybe I'm missing something. I just did a random search, to see what the cybersphere thinks the typical man is about. I Googled "the male brain", and came up with this. I rest my case.

Moving away, then, from what motivates the Islamo-crazies, I've been working on what motivates the powers that be: the people with lots of power and influence, like George Soros and Bill Gates; think-tank types and Presidential advisors. I don't think they're into sex or machismo per se, nor even into money. My guess is that they want power; and they most powerful among them want to be God.

When one looks at the world this way, "ISIS" or "Daesh" or whatever it's being called lately takes on a whole different look. In the big scheme of things, "Daesh" is not actually a player: The real players are the likes of the "G5+1" that just completed a treaty with Iran. This group consists of:

  1. The United States of America
  2. The United Kingdom of Great Britain, etc.
  3. The Republic of France
  4. The Republic of Germany
  5. The Russian Federation, and
  6. the People's Republic of China.

If one looks a little past the headlines at the Geneva talks, they really weren't about Iran. They were about the "Big Boys" getting together to decide how to run the world; and they flattered the Iranians by letting them sit in on the proceedings -- providing that they don't wear neckties.

Iran has been elevated to the role of Top Flunkie in the Middle East; and ISIS? ISIS occupies a role similar to that of the Bolsheviks in 1917. The G5+1+Iran want an orderly world, in which the wheels of the world economy keep turning to fill their coffers. ISIS, on the other hand, like the Bolsheviks before them, is bent on destruction. THAT, in my estimation, is the main reason Obama and friends are favoring Iran and going after the Caliphate -- howbeit extremely slack-handed. ISIS, to them, is like a campfire that they don't want to get out of hand. That's all.

Where's Israel in all this? Where are the Jews? Let me check Obama's brain, to see if there are any Jews in it...

...any Jews here? Nope...

...here? I don't see any Jews there...

...here? No: No Jews, no Israel...

...here? I don't think so...

Let me Google "Obama's brain Jews Israel"...

Well, there's this; but I think it's biased... Nothing about Israel, by the way...

The search just gets bizarre from here. Frankly, I don't think any of the "Big Boys" seriously think much about Israel and the Jews. To them, I imagine Israel is something like a fly to be swatted.

The world looks different from God's point of view. The Bible tells us that Israel is the apple of God's eye; so I sense a difference of opinion here. Again, this is just my opinion...

Submitting....
