It is very easy to take quotes out of context and think that a single sentence can therefore summarise a very complex situation. Teddy Roosevelt was
a brilliant man, I admire him immensely and consider him to be the very epitome of what made America great. However, there has been a lot of downhill
sliding since then.
Politics is not what makes the world go round, though it does at times help to lay the tracks and the foundations, but it is business, or if you want
to look at it purely, economics that provides the actual motion. Roosevelt did much, with his advocacy of anti-trust laws, to ensure that business
was fair, and the corporate machinery have ever since been finding loop holes around those laws. One of those loop holes, the one that has proved
most profitable, despite the enormous collateral damage, is the installation of puppet states.
Oliver Cromwell was the first commander to truly realise that an army fights more fiercely if they think that they have god on their side.
Providentialism is the most powerful beligerent ever created, and has been used consistently by the Europeans and the US ever since to instill in
their fighting forces the delusion that they are fighting with the divine right of liberation from oppression on their side. It was only a matter of
time before the Muslim hierarchy learnt to employ the same tactics. Cromwell of course gained victory through the religious zeal of his forces,
assumed to all intents and purposes an oppressive dictatorship in place of monarchy and promptly sold out his supporters to the capitalists who had
been his backers all along.
I therefore do not for a moment doubt that some of this is planned, nor do I doubt that it is not happening for a reason, but do not for a moment
think that it is a situation that is under control, because it most certainly is not. 'They', your presumed controllers, will retreat to their
bunkers to emerge unscathed, and they don't really care about us, we're just the collateral damage, and the less of us that are left, the less law
suits or complaints that they have to deal with. At the moment Iran has the upper hand simply because their fighters are operating under genuine
oppression, so naturally, their beliefs are all the more fierce and all the more unbreakable, they truly are fighting for the preservation of their
nationhood, or believe they are (however deluded that belief may be, like you and I, their true oppressors are their own governance), western forces
are fighting merely for the preservation of their lifestyle and therefore have to be brainwashed into believing that the Muslims are the new
untermensche just as the Wehrmacht and SS were.
