WMDs and Patriotism

Some comments I wanted to save that I've wrote in response to a post in Neo's site.

The UN is in New York. Bush gives Kofi mister I want to "steal from the poor to give to me" and "I pay my Peacekeepers with rape, pillage, and looting" a free place to live, on American tax money.

We don't show our allies the Japanese, the Iraqis, the Afghanistanis, the Polish, or the Australians such favor. They don't got UN seats next to us, yet we expect them to risk their people to bolster American prestige? What kind of idiocy that is, is unknown to me.

Siccing Bolton on Kofi Annan with plenipotentiary rights of trial, judge, and executioner along with revoking of diplomatic immunity, might mean Bush is forever in enmity to the UN. But keeping the status quo, as with Saddam and Iran, is to be a friend and a foresworn one at that.

The world sees America and judges us according to who our friends are and who our enemies are. If they see Osama "Mister I have food to feed your starving child" Bin Laden, and if they then see America as an enemy of Bin Laden, then America is their enemy as well.

When they see, experience, and feel the abuse and the utter degradatin and extermination of the human spirit that is SOP to the UN, and witness the location of the UNited Nations headquarters in America, what would any sane human being think of the United States of America and our prestige? They would spit upon it, and justly so.

For only the just have unjust enemies, and only the unjust may live in the land of the unjust without sanction, warrant, and execution. (Iran, Syria, North Korea)

Bolton speaks the tough talk of erasing from the face of America, the institution of the United Nations. But he has not the power to execute the UN bureacrats, and his boss has neither the will nor the desire.

It is infuriating, but I suppose Bush has more important things to do than to raise the prestige of the United States across the world.

And that is why we don't have Presidents for life. And it is only a glimmer and a sight unfelt of the experiences of Iraqis under Saddam and the UN protectorates.

Using Neo's refereal to Tough Love, if America loved the just, the innocent, and our loyal allies, just to what extent are we willing to tolerate the fiendish betrayal of a stranger, of those that we love?

What was it Jefferson said? Oh yes, he said something to the effect that he declared perpetual enmity to tyrannies across the globe. While he is not my favorite among our ancestors, he was the most eloquent.

Imagine an upstart nation declaring hostility against the ruling supremes of this world, for theirs is the way of tyranny and cruelty. Now imagine the power we have today, the power we fear to use, and for which there is no better time and no better place to use it. There comes a time when you have to use them or lose them, and there will never come a time where America has as much of an opportunity to reshape the world as we do today, in the early 21st century. Soon China and India will become competitors, and we will have to trust in their wisdom and their frugality concerning power, to uplift this world. Soon Iran will have nuclear weapons and use fear to triumph where liberty fears to tread.

For a nation that has relied upon itself for survival and the Enlightenment for our wisdom and guidance, we are currently a nation shackled to the will of others, and tyranic others at that.

It would be a fit rendering for a Shakespearean tragedy, except not even Shakespear had the fortitude to describe the utter loss and triumph of such a many as it exists here and now.

I feel gratitude that I know not a slightest glimmer of the true suffering of the world, of the six billion in perpetual slavery. For such knowledge breeds hate never ending, and such is the tragedy and the triumph of all slave races in rebellion, that only one nation ever lifted itself above such hatred and revenge, to getting ahead.

It truely is an open-world, and amidst the assumption is the heart rending truth. It only takes one failure, one stumble, to collapse the path of best results. And thus is born this fact, that Bush going to the UN matters far more than many realize.

He will not be the one to correct that mistake, instead like his Father, he shall leave it to future generations. As WWII to ours, and so on.

There is also the golden oldie [quote].

"And for the support of this Declaration with a firm reliance on the protection of divine providence, we mutually pledge to each other our lives, our fortunes, and our sacred honor."

"'He either fears his fate too much,
Or his desert is small,
Who fears to put it to the touch,
And win or lose it all.'

Such is the philosophy of the warrior and of the military. And being immersed in such an intellectual realm, produces curious thinking and even curiouser characters.

Those who have gone before, fought for us here today. We owe them a debt that is hard to repay.

"- Francis Lewis, New York delegate saw his home plundered and his estates in what is now Harlem, completely destroyed by British soldiers. Mrs. Lewis was captured and treated with great brutality. Though she was later exchanged for two British prisoners though the efforts of Congress she died from the effects of her abuse."

"- Robert Morris, merchant prince of Philadelphia, delegate and signer, met Washington's appeals and pleas for money year after year. He made and raised arms and provisions which made it possible for Washington to cross the Delaware at Trenton. In the process he lost 150 ships at sea, bleeding his own fortune and credit almost dry."

"Of those 56 who signed the Declaration of Independence, nine died of wounds or hardships during the war. Five were captured and imprisoned, in each case with brutal treatment. Several lost wives, sons or entire families. One lost his 13 children. Two wives were brutally treated. All were at one time or another the victims of manhunts and driven from their homes.

Twelve signers had their homes completely burned.

Seventeen lost everything they owned. Yet not one defected or went back on his pledged word. Their honor, and the nation they sacrificed so much to create is still intact.

The 56 signers of the Declaration of Independence proved by their every deed that they made no idle boast when they composed the most magnificent curtain line in history. "And for the support of this Declaration with a firm reliance on the protection of divine providence, we mutually pledge to each other our lives, our fortunes, and our sacred honor."

Take such misery, put yourselves in their shoes, and multiply the pain and the anguish by 6 billion human souls. You will either go mad or you will destroy yourself with hate.

I do not believe the fake liberals when they say that America is responsible for every soul on this planet, we are not that powerful.

But I also believe that Americans have a duty to not just liberate ourselves, but whoever our power may touch. We are not saints to protect everyone, but we are not trash either that would allow evil to exist because of fear.

At least, we who are not indebted to the tune of trillions in the popular culture of decadence, stupidity, and gratuity.
