The American empire created bin Laden and is killing itself

"An empire is an immense egotism,” said Ralph Waldo Emerson.
For the past 45 years, the United States, with 570,000 military personnel on 700 bases in 120 countries maintained (s) an empire around the world.  America created the Korean, Vietnam, Desert Storm and Iraq Wars.  Deaths mounted into the millions.  Human suffering registered off the Richter scale of misery.
All of their deaths and our deaths amounted to nothing with a meaning of nothing.  All could have been avoided with more intelligent minds at work for peaceful co-existence on this planet.
Fifteen years ago, Osama bin Laden demanded that America retreat from Muslim lands. We ignored him.  The Muslim world did not want us in their lands.  Bin Laden didn’t want Western culture “polluting” Islamic law and culture. Muslims view America as the “Great Satan” of the Western world.  Our women wear what they please. We celebrate in Las Vegas.  We encourage women to vote, to speak, seek divorce, to teach, to be independent and run for political office.  We accept all races, creeds and colors. We accept homosexuals. We do not allow honor killings, female genital mutilation, promote suicide bombings or arranged marriages.
We failed to leave.  Osama bin Laden exacted his revenge. We may have killed him, but we are slowly and effectively killing our civilization. All empires decline from over-extension. Examples: Great Britain, Rome, France, Athens, Germany, Spain and others.
Empires, as Thucydides understood, are diseases. Thucydides said, “The tyranny that the Athenian empire imposed on others, it finally imposed on itself. The disease of empire, according to Thucydides, “Would finally kill Athenian democracy. And the disease of empire, the disease of nationalism … these of course are mirrored in the anarchic violence of these groups, but one that locks us in a kind of frightening death spiral.”
As Pulitzer Prize winning journalist Chris Hedges said, “I despair that we as a country, as Nietzsche understood, have become a monster that we are attempting to fight.”
Nonetheless, the military industrial complex in America wins out in every battle against those who promote peace.  Lyndon Baines Johnson, Richard Nixon, George Bush I and George Bush II started wars that did nothing but bring massive deaths and casualties to other human beings and Americans.  They accomplished nothing whatsoever for freedom or human life.
Goering at the Nuremberg Trials said, “Naturally the common people don't want war: Neither in Russia, nor in England, nor for that matter in Germany. That is understood. But, after all, IT IS THE LEADERS of the country who determine the policy and it is always a simple matter to drag the people along, whether it is a democracy, or a fascist dictatorship, or a parliament, or a communist dictatorship. Voice or no voice, the people can always be brought to the bidding of the leaders. That is easy. All you have to do is TELL THEM THEY ARE BEING ATTACKED, and denounce the peacemakers for lack of patriotism and exposing the country to danger. IT WORKS THE SAME IN ANY COUNTRY."
Is any American looking at what our own government does to us every decade?  What exactly are we fighting for in Iraq and Afghanistan?  Answer: money, power and greed! None of those wars has anything to do with freedom or terror or rational thinking.
“Nothing is actually resolved, nothing concluded, and nothing to be celebrated in taking away life,” said journalist David Swanson in “War is a Crime.”  “If we want something to celebrate here, we should celebrate the end of one of the pieces of war propaganda that has driven the past decade of brutality and death. But I'm not going to celebrate that until appropriate actions follow. Nothing makes for peace like ceasing to wage war. Now would be an ideal time to give that a try. Our senseless wars in Afghanistan, Pakistan, Iraq, and Libya must be ended. Keeping bin Laden alive and threatening, assisted in keeping the war machine churning its bloody way through cities and flesh for years. No wonder President Bush was not interested in tracking bin Laden down.”
At what point will Americans sicken of their perpetrating war on other countries, on millions of other people and the contamination of our world with bombs, poisons, anger and revenge?  How can we call it good when we killed over 100,000 and up to 200,000 Iraqis?  How about the 2.0 million we killed in Vietnam in 10 years.  How about the 100,000 or so in Korea?  What exactly was the point, purpose and reason?
How can the American people be so easily duped, led over a cliff and jingoistically convinced that they are the chosen ones to go about killing so many other people in self-righteous egoism?
When the American military industrial complex cooks up the next war, and Obama or name-your-president decides to blow up another civilization, what will you say and what will you do?  If the past is any indication of the present, you will probably remain a sheep like the rest of America. You will send young men to die in war for nothing.

When it comes to the American military in Muslim lands, it's a matter of misplaced goals causing a huge sad waste. Why? Because of the stubborn refusal to address the root problem, namely, the ideology of ISLAM that makes Muslims enemies of the human race, bent on taking it over for Allah, with all options on the table.

It might not be PC to diss a "holy book", but imbibing the Quran by a child turns his mind into a big turd, with every living brain cell destroyed and oozing with bacteria that tells it what to think and do.

The best possible use of American military might consists therefore in leading a final war of extermination on Islam, not with the goal of genocide, but liberation, by occupying every Muslim country and disarming it, then taking the children away and raising them with a good secular education free of the Quran. After they reach the age of majority they can be put on probation to choose a religion, hopefully not Islam, but even that if they want, hopefully less than 1%. After that, their children must be taken away for the 2nd and hopefully final round until the world has maybe a few million not 1.x billion Muslims. Instead, we've been wasting big bucks on "nation building", while allowing parents to hand their children Qurans that teach them we're the enemy and must be defeated and dominated at all costs, and that they're entitled to extortion money as ransom for not killing us yet.

I said lead not do it all alone, there's way too many Muslims now and it's a mathematical equation, we don't have the numbers. Instead, we must try to recruit not only Europe but India and China in a world army of soldiers and teachers, probably 50 million soldiers and 30 million teachers, that will occupy the Muslim world for a generation like we did Japan. Yes, there will be some deaths as the hardcore turd brains resist a la Osama bin Laden in his Pakistan mansion, but that's the price the world has to pay for giving the Quran a blank check for so long.

For starters, the U.N. should oust all members of the OIC before quarantining, isolating, contracting, and occupying the Muslim world, and if it won't, the U.S. should oust the U.N. and start a new organization, which makes it a world crime for a child to imbibe the Quran, with all involved being subject to immediate arrest, yes, we got the world police force, the luxury of taking a bath has become a thing of the past. Another key step is the obliteration of Mecca and Medina so that no hardcore Muslims can exist again, since once we prove that their evil idol Allah is dead, there will be nothing to pray to, much less kill infidels for. At least the New Islam will be safe, like a defanged snake that's not into constricting.

The West had the power to do all this a century ago, but alas, you know what happened, we fell for Kemal Ataturd's b.s. that they would rejoin the human race and police themselves. Only when the Muslim world is no more can the pop. finally rejoin the human race and we can all finally learn to share the world, with America, Europe, China, India, and it as equal partners, and no more *!*!? Allah!

I'm whistling Dixie? I know that ever since Reagan our presidents have been soft on Islam, and the current president is a topper, claiming that bin Laden isn't a Muslim leader (he oughta know, he's a true Muslim?) then giving him a respectful Muslim burial, however fractured. Yes, the U.S. will be and must be at war with Islam if we want to be the world's best hope. Obama too shall pass, but America is the future. The longer we wait the more we're asking for hardcore Muslims to unleash WMDs on us - I hope we don't wait that long, but if I were the betting type I'd be forced to bet on it.
