He wasn’t quite the devil, but maybe he did have a little sulfur dust emanating from him as he spewed his venom towards the world like a corrupt small town Texas sheriff who has come to town to lay the law down. The only problem is that this man. Mr. Bush, was not supposed to be talking as if he was the teacher and the world were his pupils, rather he was supposed to speak as one member-state of the United Nations.
During the run-up to the American invasion and occupation of Iraq President Bush arrogantly told the UN that it needed to go with him or lose relevance; he had it backwards. If the UN, which represents nearly every nation in the world, would have went against the desires of the vast majority of the people on Earth, in order to placate the desire of Bush and those around him then the UN would have lost relevance. What happened in Iraq is that the US lost relevance as a leader in the world; not the other way around.
So after Bush has been embarrassed in Iraq and his project has become a miserable failure he has the audacity to come in to the UN and start barking out orders as if he rules the world and that he envisions himself as a modern-day Caesar. Who has appointed him as the ruler of the world?
I am not a fan of the regime in Iran, and this is mainly due to its persecution of the Sunnis; but I am steadfastly opposed to a US attack on Iran because Iran, even with nuclear weapons, poses no threat to the US. If Iran would pose a threat to anyone, it would be Israel, and therefore if that is the case then Israel should deal with its problem as a sobering state and not rely on the US.
The mainstream US media in jingoistic fashion failed to critically examine the speech of Bush, or even turn the critical eye towards America and our role in the world, and ridiculed and talked down to the President of Iran Mahmnoud Ahmedinijad and MSNBC even refused to label President Hugo Chavez of Venezuela as anything other than “ a friend of the Axis of Evil” and I guess under the leadership of Dan Abrams, who was a supporter of the war and someone with neo-con tendencies, MSNBC is going to become Fox Light while Anderson Cooper, who was completely disrespectful towards the President of Iran, is Fox Ultra, and that is why we need independent media in America.
Indy media such as WBAI radio in New York which last night featured the show of Platel Benjamin who said what needs to be said and that is that America is doesn’t want to see nuclear weapons in the hands of non-whites and that if America wants to stop nuclear proliferation then it needs to start destroying some of its nuclear stockpile and not increasing it. Unless Bush is planning on reducing his nuclear arsenal then Iran should tell Bush to go to hell, where he will be when he dies unless he repents anyway along with the rest of the murderous cowards around him.
The speech of Hugo Chavez, that while it may have been a little theatrical and over the top, spoke to these truths, and instead of taking the speech serious the mainstream media attacking as if it were the PR firm for the Bush Administration and those you see what kind of media we really have.
The racist bastard Jack Cafferty even went as far as to see that the President of Iran looked like “ he was there to serve dinner”. I pray to Allah that if there is a war on Iran Cafferty becomes an imbedded correspondent with the first unit of ground forces to hit Tehran, which would be e nice ending for him.
Far from being hateful towards the America people and saying we are all bad, as someone I spoke too today said, Chavez aimed is speech towards the America people and tried to educate us about the threat that is emanating from our soil and is the greatest threat to the world at this time- even greater than the cultural decay of Europe of Islamic radicalism. He even suggested we read a book by Noam Chomsky and today he gave a speech in Harlem to promote his low-cost heating oil to the poor program, which he is looking to expand. Are the Republicans offering low-cost heating oil? Or are they in the back room counting the dough with the CEO’s of the big energy corporations? It was also President Chavez who early on offered help the victims of Hurricane Katrina. So, I will say that Chavez does not hate the America people and he has a message for the American people; we can be more than a nation based on white nationalism and democracy for our own and global domination, we can be a people that are more on the lines of Christ and that is a people based on peace and justice for all.
To show you how off the news can be at time Nightline ran a special on the anti-immigration sentiment in the St. Louis suburb of Valley Park. It failed to mention that VP is a place where the Confederate flag is proudly waived, it is a place known for neo-nazi activity going year back, and it is a place infested with Meth and crime, none of this was mentioned.
