Press TV: US, West Desperate for “Decency”

US, West desperate for ‘decency’

By Gordon Duff and Press TV

“The real subject here is “decency.” Every philosophy, every major religion, every international organization feels they serve the needs of decency. The United Nations protects the interests of the wealthy and powerful, terrorist groups extract revenge for abuses against the poor and downtrodden, drone attacks eliminate “anti-social” elements, killing two militants out of every hundred civilians that die.”

Related Interviews:
During the US presidential debates, both candidates talked about the suffering of the Syrian people and how we were going to supply weapons to make things better, Obama with “small arms” and Romney promising “heavy weapons,” perhaps turning a hundred B-52 8 engine bombers over to the rebels or giving them a few aircraft carriers or nuclear submarines.

Syria, we were told, had to have a new government though no international authority has approved such a move and no nation, under international law, can impose its will on another without itself becoming an aggressor nation, a war criminal in a very real sense.

Then the talk shifted to Iran. The only consideration given was complying with the wish of Israel to see Iran economically destroyed even if millions starve, their economy is destroyed, they are denied vital medicines, even if all their population centers are subjected to nuclear bombardment.

When we’re told “Nothing is off the table,” that is clear, a “shock and awe” nuclear attack on Iran not only isn’t ruled out but is almost incessantly spoken of by Israel.

After all, Iran has to be wiped off the face of the map so Israel, a nation which does have nuclear weapons and other “weapons of mass destruction” and uses them continually, can continue to talk of the “Samson Option.”

This is official policy of Israel, one every head of state knows well. If Israel feels threatened, all European cities are within range of Israeli missiles.

We are told all major US cities are also in rage of the new ICBM’s India has built, each with 10 nuclear warheads, a dozen of which have been delivered to Israel, none have any purpose other than to be used against North America.

Thus, though Israel and Western Europe and Israel and North America are “allies” of a sort. That friendship is based on implied violence and potential mass murder.

Israel, a nation that prides itself for being the “junk yard dog” of the world feels its strength lies in convincing other nations that the basis of its foreign policy is piracy, pre-emptive strikes, even at friends, and, if threatened, mass suicide.

Anyone who believes that every major power doesn’t have part of their nuclear strategic arsenal targeted on Israel is delusional, and we are talking, not only the United States, but Britain, France, Russia, China, India, Pakistan and even Japan.

North Korea and Israel have agreements and are surprisingly close friends. No hostile acts will ever pass between them.

The real subject here is “decency.” Every philosophy, every major religion, every international organization feels they serve the needs of decency. The United Nations protects the interests of the wealthy and powerful, terrorist groups extract revenge for abuses against the poor and downtrodden, drone attacks eliminate “anti-social” elements, killing two militants out of every hundred civilians that die.

All is meant to defend decency; Palestinians are protected in Gaza, kept from harming themselves by periodic reminders, napalm, cluster bombs, barbed wire, imprisonment, locked away so they are safe from harm. This is how we now describe decency.

This week, America, curiously close to a national election, is engaging in a frenzy of “decency” for its own people. No expense is spared, credit for “decent acts” is appropriately heaped upon the bureaucracies responsible and perhaps this really is something right and good.

The problem is the hypocrisy and inconsistency. A parallel bureaucracy to the one delivering fresh drinking water, saving people from raging floods with helicopters, distributing food, repairing power lines, that parallel bureaucracy has imprisoned 15 million Americans.

Television shows tell Americans this nation within a nation is made up of degenerate criminals, a ravaging hoard ready to descend upon humanity unless locked away in dark and filthy prison cells where the weak are raped daily, where all are malnourished and abused.

America’s prisons are among the most brutal on earth.
We talked about “parallel bureaucracy.” We should talk about Afghanistan and “drones.” Sometimes, when President Obama slips into the occasional lucid moment, he speaks of us remaining at war so long that we forget the reasons we are there.
He always returns to the iconic events of 9/11, peddling the carefully contrived mythology left him by his sociopathic predecessor.

Colonel Eugene Khrushchev would tell him why America is in Afghanistan. America is there because top members of America’s government produce 98% of the world’s heroin in Afghanistan.

That heroin, combined with other drugs, methamphetamine, cocaine, ecstasy, “oxy” and others are why so many Americans are in prison or jail, on parole or probation, or in “rehab” or dead of overdoses.

Their purpose in life is to serve their nation and the business of that nation which is to not just steal oil but to look for nations to invade.

America, or at least its government, is the world’s largest drug gang. A circuitous industry of intelligence and military, of border guards that look the other way, of police who get a share, of government officials at every level who get “a taste,” drugs and drug money is as American as a burning a Koran or a defiled corpse.

It is all about decency. Decency is for election years. Decency is for those who have power and money. Decency is rationed like water on a life raft adrift in an empty sea.Another name for decency, one used by humorists, is “random acts of kindness.” Americans have come to see humanity, see decency and kindness as a form of ironic humor, as something so rare that can be shocking and unexpected.It is as though we form governments to mitigate responsibility for inhumanity. Were ten thousand innocent victims kidnapped and killed to bolster the statistics during the Bush war on terror or was it a hundred thousand?All Americans are aware that our nation traded in innocent lives the way human trafficker’s trade in children for the sexual perverts of certain European nations.Moreover, it was the “most faithful” of America’s “Christians” that stressed the need for torture, the need for brutality and inhumanity, stressing that Jesus Christ would never judge them for their sins because so many millions proved themselves to be monstrous and inhuman that the “gates of heaven” could be overwhelmed.

Good became bad, god became Satan, love and forgiveness became torture and murder and religion as it had been so aptly expressed in Europe’s dark ages returned to its roots.

This is why we cherish the concept of decency, the simplicity of it, the scale of it, how it can apply to a single person or a nation, to a race, to a species, maybe eventually to the planet itself.

Decency.

    not being an Israeliphile is not the same as being antisemantic!

    • Jim W. Dean  November 4, 2012 at 5:37 am

      Nor is not wanting to be a victim of militant Judaism being anti-semite. On the contrary, those that pitch the anti-semite smear should be made to wear the TJ badge, ‘Talmudic Jew’, so the rest of us can treat them like they treat people…and so be it…by their hand.

      But the key here is not to slip into their collective guilt mentality, despite their success with the tactic. As we can never defeat militant Islam without the moderates playing the key role, nor will we be able to defeat militant Judaism/Zionist without the moderates doing the same. That hook up completely destroys their ‘them against us’ con job…and the elite Jews can no longer use the rank and file Jews as canon fodder.

      And I am not fooling around here. As a personal example, I consider the Christian Zionists as mortal a threat my security compared to anyone else on the planet. Any racial, cultural, religious overlap all goes up in smoke when you realize they don’t mind bringing on mass slaughter if they can get their buzz out of it.

      That is why I also refer to them as CJ’s, ‘Christian Jihadis’, because I think the analogy with the Muslim Jihadis is right on…and fair…by their own hand. I am not a meanie!! 🙂

    • DaveE  November 4, 2012 at 4:55 pm

      Right on. Fundamentalist Islam and fundamentalist “Christianity” are all based on the Torah, Talmud and the writings of a bunch of sick “Jews.” So we get the triple whammy……… perversions and filth from three different angles.

      Was this an accident? I’d seriously like to know……..

    Maybe great music will help in some invisible way to inspire us regarding how to turn this nightmare around. It can’t hurt.

    Oscar Peterson – Hymn To Freedom (his original composition)

    youtube.com/watch?v=9H5aCwTMHwE&feature=related

    Former Canadian Prime Minister Jean Chretien reminisced about the display of mutual admiration that unfolded when he invited Peterson to a 2001 ceremony honoring Nelson Mandela.

    During a private meeting, Chretien recalled, the revolutionary political figure glowed upon meeting the great pianist.

    “It was very emotional,” Chretien told The Canadian Press . “They were both moved to meet each other. These were two men with humble beginnings who rose to very illustrious levels.”

    “Everything that Oscar did, the word used would be astounding. He had such great technique and agility, anything he could think of he could play.” He was classically trained, and for much of his life practiced 4-6 hours a day.

    “I don’t think anybody can listen to Oscar without being affected, and certainly being inspired.”

    “He was the kindest, gentlest, most forgiving person on the face of the earth,” said a fellow musician.

    His parents were immigrants from the West Indies; his father worked as a porter for Canadian Pacific Railway, and was an amateur musician. His sister was a highly regarded piano instructor. O.P., as his friends called him, dropped out of school after winning a major Canadian piano competition and went on to his career spanning more than 60 years.

      Where there is a will, there is a way…

      Peterson had arthritis since his youth, and in later years could hardly button his shirt. He had hip replacement surgery in the early 1990s. Somewhat later, in 1993, Peterson suffered a serious stroke that weakened his left side and sidelined him for two years.

      He gradually regained mobility and some control of his left hand. However, his virtuosity was never restored to the original level, and his playing after his stroke relied principally on his right hand.

      Watch and listen

      Entirely in your corner on this one Duay. Talked to NHOP in Ronnie Scott’s (where he was dueting with Mulgrew Miller) after Oscar had his stroke and he said that he had really lost any significant use in his left hand (evident in later video clips) Thereafter performed with a guitarist in quartet format to broaden the harmonic sound, something he never needed before (more like a one man orchestra). Had to say that I had seen the great man ‘live’ and eventually did so at the Royal Albert Hall in London 2005. From where I was sitting I could see him come to the stage entrance in a wheelchair. He then got up and walked 40 feet unaided to the Steinway. Proud man ! Proceeded to play the thing beautifully (virtually one handed) for the best part of two hours – a truly inspirational human being.

    • DaveE  November 3, 2012 at 7:34 am

      You have great taste in music, Duay. Thanks.

    Paul Wellstone stepped up.

      And *of course* was murdered for doing so.

    See you on the other side.

    Does anybody remember when a politician would automatically RESIGN if he was even thought to be party to ANY scandal or shady business? Even if someone in their department was at fault and this caused raised eye-brows – they would fall on their sword without a whimper.

    They ‘did the decent thing’.

    Today they are all strategically placed into the political structure by the cabal – and you would not get them out with a crowbar even if they were caught with their pants down and with their fingers full of dollars from the national till register. So much for decency.

    • DaveE  November 2, 2012 at 4:27 pm

      I think it may be that the “bar” is a lot lower than it used to be. What passes for decent behavior now would get a person filled with buckshot in the past.

      I think the only time a politician resigns is when the options (impeachment, execution) look worse. We weren’t always so overwhelmed with zionist-sponsored depravity, so the bad guys would be more obvious in years past.

  8. peter  November 2, 2012 at 2:43 pm

    Everything is reversed for the cabal like in supermans bizaro world. Insane is sane, war is peace, getting your psychiatrist killed is helping him, and Iran needs Syria to access the sea. Pure psyco’s.

    “No matter how noble the objective of a government, if it blurs decency and kindness, cheapens human life, and breeds ill will and suspicion – it is an evil government”
    Eric Hoffer

    If anyone wants to talk about “decency” that pretty much rules out a vote for Obama. The words “decency” and “Obama” don’t belong in the same universe.

    As for Romney, if elected, I guess those of us concerned with re-establishing decency will just have to deal with him as other tyrants have been dealt with.

    1776 was not a one-shot deal.

    • Gordon Duff  November 2, 2012 at 9:14 am

      Dave,

      vote for the degenerate gambler with the cuban mistress who spies for russia

      good match

    • DaveE  November 2, 2012 at 10:46 am

      Not gonna vote for Romney either. If that tips the scale to Romney, well, that’s what we damn well deserve for letting it get that far gone.
