What I can't stand is jack-booted egotists who trade their brains for guns. Nobody EVER wins a war with guns or bombs. All that
ever does is
make lasting enemies.
Germany? They still have allusions towards European domination. Both the latest World Wars knocked them down, but what do you think the next 100 years
will bring? Germany, for as long as it existed (Germania), has been a warring nation. It caused the Roman Empire a millenium of grief and never
stopped acting the same for the next 1000 years. It's been 50 years of peace and quiet, but what they couldn't do with the Blitzkreig, they're now
handling nicely with the Deutsche Mark. And before anyone jumps down my throat over this statement, I have some of that blood in me too. Call it
Japan? Not too sure they love the west all that much anymore either. Always were rather 'inscrutable' and what I can't scrute, I can't trust. After 60
years of working hand in glove with the west, can't say I understand their dislike of Europeans, but it's there just under the surface. We're just a
bunch of 'round-eyes' to be taken for an extensive expensive ride.
South Korea? Well... that's a tough one, isn't it? No telling where this idea of re-unifying with the North will go and they were pretty intent on
putting western troops to the test recently. Had that fight ensued, there would have been hell to pay, especially if the Chinese got involved.
Vietnam? Let's not even go there.
Iraq? The less foreign boots on the ground there, the more unstable that country is going to be. Can't get around that bloody hatred they have for
each other. They'll be bombing each other for generations to come. You can't actually believe a calm, collected and peaceful democracy is going to
blossom there, do you?
Afghanistan? Nobody EVER controlled that bunch. Not even Alexadander the Great. You can go in and fight for control for 50 years, like he did, but in
the end, it's still going to be Hazaras and Pashtun's at each other's throats over the heroin trade. You might think those 'Mongols' aren't tough, but
history proves that a fallacy.
There's only one way to come to agreable terms and it's called mutual benefit. It overcomes religious and ideological differences. Trouble is, it
takes time to come to sensible agreements and in this crazy freaking world, no-one seems to have or want to take their time anymore. There's always
another Hitler invading Poland, or a Saddam invading Kuwait and forcing others to take up arms to fight back. It's a ridiculous merry-go-round and
nobody is able, or even willing, to get off. It's likely more profitable to make war... no, it IS
Now we're in the process of getting another great round of butchery going.
Christians VS Islam
Nothing like religious differences to make that work, right? Did you know that Mohammed took up the sword within 6 years of starting Islam and it was
either conform to his religion or die? So, nearly a 1000 years later we have two major religions, both spread primarily by the force of arms and now
encompassing many millions on both sides AND we are obviously headed for serious conflict over some very minor differences. So minor, for instance,
that both are connected to human prophets elevated to a deity status by their adherents and in the name of a Hebrew God they both share.
East VS West
The East is rising, in case you haven't noticed. There's a world to conquer because sharing it isn't enough. The West has the raw materials it needs
to grow, specifically oil, and the East isn't going to hold their collective breaths waiting to get it as their economies boom. I'm not talking about
just China here. Things are building up quickly.
North VS South
South and Central American countries are beginning to get stronger and their ideologies don't fit too well with their Northern counterparts. It's
early in that game, but the likes of Chaves are pretty vocal. No telling where all that machismo is going. Mexico? Hmmm... not pretty at all.
Africa is also getting friskie. Egypt, Tunesia, the Gold Coast, Kenya, Sudan and a few other testy places. It's a boiling pot with a potential for
widespread murder and mayhem. There will be an eventual price to pay for the hell seen in Rwanda and the Congo.
So grab your guns and start the killing, folks. It's a great adventure and somehow, it's all going to be good in the end. The Georgia Guidestones can
light your way:
Maintain humanity under 500,000,000 in perpetual balance with nature.
