I think the leaders you cheer on may be thinking that MAD now means Masses Attacked Decisively.
Who says I'm cheering them on? You talk as If one has to turn a blind eye to the fanaticism of Iran; if not, one supports whatever you imagine I'm
All I know is, I don't view favorably Iran's totalitarian and extremist ideology. Therefore, It is wise and circumspect to make sure they never have
access to a weapon as powerful as a nuclear bomb.
This is not derived from the western media, but a simple study of Shia Islam, the Iranian revolution, the writings of Sayd Qutb, Ayatollah Khomeini,
and the last 7 or 8 years since Ahmadinejad came into power.
All this is worrisome. Don't think it will go away if "Israel goes away". Think again. Anyone with a knowledge of the progression of political
Islam (known as Islamism) is truly horrified by it's growth since Obama came into power. Now, the Muslim Brotherhood rules in Egypt, and is the
leading political party in the Tunisian parliament! And in Libya and Syria, theres a movement towards Islamization and an opposition that is inching
closer to ousting Assad.
And nothing to worry over? As the edifice built by western imperialism crumbles before our eyes??
It's just wanton ignorance of the difficulties between western culture and its philosophical view of the world and Islamic culture and it's view of
the world that leads to these naive judgements that sees "west as bad" and "Islam, innocent victims". As harsh as it may sound, it was in our
interest to keep them down. But, the tides are changing and the Islamist - backwards looking and sharia trumpeting - movement, is in the ascendent,
and stupid leftists don't even see how this is a problem. As if their world view doesn't contradict ours; and as if their religion doesn't require
them to overcome us.
You seem to have difficulty thinking outside the religious sphere.
And you seem to have a difficulty of thinking rationally, which, if you were rational, would indicate to you the importance of taking seriously the
I did not state that the believers of $$$ were atheists, they just believe in a different deity.
aye...they don't believe in money. They don't "worship" it an alter. Yes, they worship it 'unconsciously', but they are most of them secularists
and atheists at heart. This is the only world of relevance to them; and that, my friend, is the difference between them and Islamists.
The lot you cheer on are much more dangerous than the forces you denounce
They're definitely more perspicacious. But they are not more dangerous. I'd much prefer people who 'doubt' then people who are so freaking sure
they have the truth that they would start a nuclear war to get rid of the 'evil' of western culture.
That's just psychological prudence.
The fact that you are cheering them on is an indictment of your thinking processes.
I cheer on the side that promotes my self interests i.e. my philosophical values.
I know the west is far from blameless. But being guilty does not entail committing suicide.
