on America and its alliances
Submitted by Ianus (Poland), Feb 22, 2007 at 15:39
Dear AS ,
It's nice to read your comments again. Thanks a lot !
> you are right about Persia. You just have to meet the Parsees here in India to realise the story.
I'd love to meet them. I have heard so many good things about them. They never lie and are so honest and reliable. What a contrast to the mendaciousness "taqyya" of the Arabized Iranians of today.
> the fall of Persia was the saddest tragedy of this planet. and Zorastrianism, which has influenced Judaism and Indian Vedic religion has been relegated to the corners of Bombay with a couple of thousand people left!
A senister warning to all who naively hope that one can coexist with Moslems without losing one's identity and culture. Perhaps in a hundred years or so all the Western civilization will be likewise reduced to a few thousands refugees hiding somewhere in the forests of Siberia or the steppes of Mongolia ...
> as far as America n Saudi goes, I really dont think its the money. I mean come on, for a 15 trillion dollar economy the money that Saudis have is loose change. its an inexplicable Lawrence of Arabia or Richard Lionheart syndrome.
But still with those 15 trillion dollars the Saudis are able to finance a plethora of mosques and Islamic cultural centres in the West and buy the media.
Anyway do you think that Western politicians are so expensive ? I guess they can be bought for a few hundred thousand or million dollars . E.g. the former German chancellor Helmuth Kohl took not more in the scandal where the French Oil Company Elf Aquitaine "secured" the Leuna Werke in East Germany. I don't think the price list for American politicians is much higher.
> the oil industry with Cheney n Bush gang is really now doing anti-national things as far as American public is concerned. A system has been created. the coterie follows. Bush senior had to pray on the ship when he visited Saudi after Gulf WarI! coz infidels cant pray in the pure land!!
I wonder how he answered the question any non-Moslem who has Moslem "friends" is sooner or later confronted "Why don't you convert to Islam? After all you say Islam is a great religion , don't you ? ". (I am personally curious , how Dr Pipes who spent so many years in the Near East resisted the temptation to become a Moslem ? )
> they just take the muck of islam for granted. coz of an inexplicable mix of multicultralism and leftism and corruption. america is soon gonna become europe where muslims create riots and noises every now n then. n they both are soon gonna reach india's condition where bomb blasts n riots happen every month.
Two Moslem bombings have already occurred but more will follow. You can't play with the Devil and expect you'll avoid hell.
> the biggest problem is the virus of multiculturalism and respect for all religions that has been fed to people.
Multiculturalism is an irrational , untestable , uncorfirmable theory . Unless you believe in it , you'll never see why you should adopt it. In our irrational age it's a most fashionable theory. The difference with other fashionable theories is though that's its consequences are disastrous and hardly reversible.
> this concept is automatically rendered null n void if one of the cultures/religions is predatory n parasitic in nature. today ppl hv no problem with barrack hussein obama or some shit like that as a Presidential candidate. i say no!!! unless some non muslim doesnt lead muslim countries this should not be allowed.
There is no mechanism of reciprocity in this multiculture theory which only proves its pseudo-scientific value or nonsensicality in my eyes. History also shows such experiments don't end up peacefully .
> may be america should officially declare itself a christian country. its time we all do that. this confrontation is on religious lines.
Absolutely ! The last war produced by multiculturalism and fought on European soil was based on these lines - the Balcan war was carried out between the Orthodox , Catholics and Moslems. It's rediculous to believe in a newly invented "Bosnian" language to prove this was not a religious conflict. The next "Balcan war" will be probably fought in the West as the spectre of multiculturalism will be repaced by the nightmare of Moslem supremacism.
> they cant fight the islamists when a hussein can become america's president.
But what if America - for whatever reasons - doesn't really want to fight the Islamists ?
> if he looks good or talks well, let him go and sleep around in morocco?? all those stealth weapons r gonna be useless.
> I read somewhere that an american soldier in iraq is sentenced to 8yrs for murder of an iraqi.
Perhaps America needs a scapegoat to appease its Moslem "friends" ?
> hell! all those shias n sunnis r exploding and killing by dozens everyday!!!! i dont remember such kind of cases when americans or English were fighting in WWII. what kinda war is this? for a phony war, these guys have exhausted their military. i wonder if another 9/11 happens. and americans will think on the lines of we really deserved this!!!
It's quite probably now after the Afghan and Iraq wars ... "We were punished for being bad boys but what about turning the other cheek to atone our sins ...?" ... The weakling mentality is quite widespread in the West... Its inventiveness is rich.
> the rest of the world is not here to just keep on giving to the islamics.
The rest of the world is probably thinking already how it could benefit by the demise of the West and a new partition of the West's huge wealth ... Where there are wolves there are also vultures and other scavengers.
> Lenin had to just invent a new name for God and say He was directing him. and lo! we would be 'respecting' communism!!!
Well , that might have happened given the totem status provided to religion in the West.
> america is doomed.
As long as it persists in this mad pro-Islam policy it is digging its own grave.
> i just hope china doesnt fall for islam.
It can't due to its Eastern Turkestan Muslim experience. It's a natural enemy of Islam although the appearnces may be misleading at the moment.
> coz that would mean the world is doomed. for the west, i am convinced, the current form of democracy with its human rights 'militias' and liar journalists will lead to its destruction.
Voltaire once said about the Swedish king Charles XII that is was his virtue that had brough ruin and downfall on him. The same can be said about the West that prefers to be right in all things and perish than to be wrong in one thing and survive.
> i personally find the 'communist' leaders of china much more pragmatic and committed to their people's welfare. the west really needs to do a re-evaluation of their cultural identity and their value systems.
I completely agree. But I can't see any Western politicians ready to risk their careers to save their culture. On the contrary , they all prefer to ruin their cultures to save their careers. With such politicians no culture can survive. This is the heart of all their value system and of all the Western problem.
