Ummah,

Re hellboy hiding behind a Jesus avatar, and daring to slime our Warrior Princess, in effect calling her a hack for 'evil war profteer' Dick Cheney.....

Let him do Beelzebub Jr. at a site with moderators who moderate E.g. The Sean Hannity Forum. Let Obnoxious try shrieking there, "You idiots need me! You idiots need me!"

Want some entertainment? Watch how long the wretch lasts there--- or at any site with a serious moderator--- after Warning #1.

Life and premature death of Pax Obamicana
By Spengler

History speaks of a Pax Romana, a Pax Britannica, and a Pax Americana - but no other namable eras of sustained peace, for the simple reason cited by Henry Kissinger: nothing maintains peace except hegemony and the balance of power. The balancing act always fails, though, as it did in Europe in 1914, and as it will in Central and South Asia precisely a century later. The result will be suppurating instability in the region during the next two years and a slow but deadly drift toward great-power animosity. Those who wanted an end to US hegemony will get what they wished for. But they won't like it.

"No one nation can or should try to dominate another nation," US President Barack Obama told the United Nations on September 23. "No world order that elevates one nation or group of people
over another will succeed. No balance of power among nations will hold." Having renounced hegemony as well as the balance of power, Obama by year-end chose to prop up the power balance in the region with additional American and allied soldiers in Afghanistan. Obama chose the least popular as well as the least effective alternative. The US president's apparent fecklessness reflects the gravity of the strategic problems in the region.

I post here because Monica has a significant moderate and even liberal following vis a vis TMG that you cretins, in your own 29 percenter world of Fox News make-believe, are blissfully unaware of. There's a big wide world out there, and Warrior Princess is destined for higher things than perhaps even she is aware of.

And because the Truth needs to be said. For every one of you, there are an untold number who agree, and even more who learn, grow, and change as Truth resonates with their souls.

It's called Faith. Even though all you see is opposition, you know it's not all that exists.

But by all means, keep attempting to marginalize me. It only makes me and the Truth shine brighter.

This will not be the last time Warrior Princess admits Hillary Clinton was right.

About many, many, MANY things.

I can only hope that Warrior Princess is right about Hillary Clinton being the next President.

Why does one side stopping fighting first work?

Because it proves to everyone, no matter the motivation, that the side that quit fighting first is the MORALLY SUPERIOR one.

The opposition HAS to acknowledge the other side as morally superior, because, to them, it appears the other side has stopped IN RECOGNITION and ADMISSION of FAULT.

Whether that is the case or not, it achieves the desired result; PEACE.

IF Peace truly is the desired result.

In the US, which has become nothing more than a fascist offense contractor-controlled war machine, peace is NOT, nor will it likely EVER BE, the desired result.

And that war machine has more than enough warmongering minions crawling around to try and insure hate and war go on unabated forever.

Because genocide never works to end war. God has made it impossible for those who embark on such a path to ever achieve their ends.

However, endless war cannot be "managed"; it will, indeed, escalate until the warmongers destroy the planet.

There is a vast difference between surrender when you've been overwhelmingly beaten and will live under years of occupation, and CHOOSING to cease hostilities and occupation when you have overwhelming military superiority and could easily wipe entire countries off the face of the planet.

The Carpenters had a song on an earlier CD written by Ralph Carmichael, a gospel songwriter in the 70's.

The title is "Love Is Surrender."

I see XBJLLB is on fire this morning. The firt post made me think of Jesus's Sermon on the Mount. May i remind those who have forgotten: WE were not fighting anyone when Bobby Stetham of the USN was beaten to death and his body dumped on the Beirut runway: WE were not fighting anyone when Col. Higgins of the USMC was tortured and hanged by a wire (fact is the Corps was there standing between the Israelis and the Palestinians;big mistake there). WE helped Muslims in Bosnia; WE helped Muslims in their war against the Soviets. WE did'nt even fight anyone when the Islamists tried to knock down the WTC in '93. Saddam concocted a plot to murder then former Pres Geo. Bush in the early 90's after signing a cease-fire. And that poor little Berg kid who went to Iraq just to help people, pray tell, who was HE fighting when that greasy Zarqarwi(know my spelling incorrect) sawed his head off. Now i an angry----Just tell me any of you sonsuvbiches out there---who was that little Berg boy fighting--HUNH. Talk about Moral rightness---it was morally right and fun to think it even Divine to recall the USAF putting a 500 lb. bomb on that murderous Batards head. Surrender? NEVER! And despite the best efforts of some of our 'fellow' Americans it ain't gonna happen but there may come a day when those Quislings are called forward for a reckoning. Now there's some preachin' for ya......Semper Fidelis

I am still incensed about the Chinese companies providing missile parts to Iran. Sanctions placed against these companies are being evaded, as Chinese pressure to buy their goods has caused companies in the US to buy. Kohler Industries is one such company. They claim to have been confused in using the floppy disks they were provided, and occidentally bought from the wrong company.

Is this the way to deal with this issue? The Chinese gov't is laughing at US.

(1) We need to stop the boats with goods before they dock at our ports, not use floppy disks.
(2) We need to directly confront the Chinese gov't, and place sanctions against all similar companies, while inplaceing the framework for creating our own replacement manufacturing - for the sake of our national defense.

Anything less is just encouraging more of the same.

I'm affraid that's going to happen sooner rather than later. But what's the first Afri-can't American President to do? Why he'll have to take another 2 week vacation in Hawaii, of course! This will serve to give his "team of experts" time enough to figure out how to address the grave situation in the worse possible fashion. Then President Gym Rat will give a blame America speech prepared and written for him by Axelrod enumerating all the reasons why it's all our fault. LIEberals are SO predictable.

BTW, concerning China, here's a bit of good news: Gerald Celente -- trends researcher extraordinaire -- predicts there will soon be a backlash against cheap Chinese imports:


Not Made in China

A “Buy Local/My Country First” backlash will be the first sign of what we forecast will become a massive, “circle-the-wagons” movement. We forecast a “Not Made in China” consumer crusade that will spread among developed nations, leading to trade wars and protectionism.

Craftspeople and small manufacturers that can establish a reputation for quality products will be able to build thriving micro-brands, while marketers who can amalgamate micro-cooperatives into true local commerce organizations will carve a solid niche for themselves......

This is the country that is complaining about being scrutinized for entry to the United states:

"With a teeming population of 126 million, Nigeria is struggling to stabilize both politically and economically. Recently, instability has been made worse by religious tensions between Christians (40%) and Muslims (50%). An estimated 13,000 Nigerians have been killed in internecine violence since 1980. Most were hacked by swords and knives.

"The problem stems from militant Muslims that have attempted to impose Shari'a in several states in recent years. Since 1999, 12 of Nigeria's 36 states have adopted or plan to adopt some version of Shari'a. These developments prompted Freedom House, a watchdog group, to note that Nigeria is exhibiting symptoms of 'Talibanization.'"

"Actually, that doesn't mean anything to me," King replied, earning him a point in Imus's favor. So much so, in fact, that Imus hinted King run for Senate in New York. While he's "looking at" the statewide race, King is reluctant to give up his House seat, and "run all over the state" for the next year instead of working on homeland security issues. Oh yeah, and he'd have raise almost $40 million.

People are openly discussing surviving civil distress. Someone pointed out to me that without Chinese support, we cannot pay for the military, and it will be only the civil defense system that can help people in the country.

Obviously Congress is doing nothing to change this situation, and the pres is not inclined or strong enough to change anything, so ... who will ensure that there is civil order, the countryside is protected, and that laws are obeyed?

A reporter has suggested that the civil defense system is really defunct. All that remains are some radio people, and the TV alert system telling you where to go. Of course, you would get the Napolitano speech "Everything is in control".

That's ludicrous, spurious, and quite ignorant of history. What would have happened, had FDR NOT blockaded Japan to prevent fuel and food from reaching it to force Japan to attack to enrage the American public enough to enter the war against Hitler, Japan would have never attacked in the first place.

And without a Japanese attack, America would have stayed out of WWII as the overwhelming number of Americans wanted.

And Hitler would have self-destructed against the Soviets in winter anyway when he did, without a two-front war. Hitler was a suicidal puffed up nutcase, as are all would-be world emperors and their empires. Sooner or later he would overreach, as we have, and be destroyed.

So what if the Soviets had taken over all of Germany? Communism would have still collapsed when it did under the weight of its own failed economic policies.

So to say the Japanese would have won the war when they never would have bombed Pearl Harbor in the first place, or that the Nazis would have won against Russia, is idiocy.

Truth is, the world would have gone down such a different path, that today it would be completely unrecognizable. Japan would happily control most of China, for example, and Viet Nam would have never happened.

And if the US had not entered WWII, it most likely would have never developed nuclear weapons either, the first step in bringing the planet to eventual Armageddon.

A Catholic MARINE, to boot. Hope the priest you confess to plans to sometime during his perfect sinless life climb up on a cross, die for your sins, and then resurrect himself, because unless he does, you're shi*t out of luck. Ditto the plaster Mary statue with tears of blood.

In response to your long line of understandable (while never justifiable) REACTIONS to FIFTY YEARS of belligerent and aggressive foreign policy against the Mideast, both overt and clandestine, like I said, if you go back far enough, BOTH SIDES can claim the other started it. And then all the other side has to do is go back a bit farther.

But like my Mama beat into me when my brother hauled off and hit me first, it takes two sides to fight, and as the stronger and elder, I was going to be the side that stopped first.

Or else. And we did have peace in the house.

An important hurdle is in the process of being cleared for Peter King. Imus, even detractors must admit, has an eerie ability to sell books---a talent which can even extend to politicians (as we saw most recently in the NJ Gubernatorial upset). Conclusion: I have reason to believe that El Bernardo is working his mojo on Don Imus.

She didn't, exactly. What she said is she expects Hillary to resign and run against Obama in the primary in 2012.

And if Hillary does, or she runs for any other reason such as Obama choosing NOT to run because of health issues or reality setting in, she WILL win both the primary and the Presidency against any possible GOP candidate.

I'm sure that XBJLLB thinks her 9th grade sarcasm equates with wit but it won't do for me. As for her "Catholic Marine to boot..." remark XB has previously posted of her father being a survivor of Pearl Harbor (as was mine:USS MARYLAND); so i wonder, what her dad thought of Marines of the Catholic faith. Probably held them in the same high esteem i'm sure he held Marines of other denominations. Some of those bodies still interred in the hull of the USS ARIZONA are Marines and a few of the Catholic faith, i'm sure. And, no doubt, a lot of the bodies of Marines floating around the reef at Tarawa were Marines of the Catholic faith. As to her "confessing" remark, she shows herself to be angry about something; she is also out-dated. Confession is no longer a requirement to be a Communicant and though i am a sometime Cath, i never heard anybody claim priests were sinless----so bone up on the last five centuries XB if that's a topic you want to post about. And, oh yeah, the particularly SMALL remark concerning "plaster statues..."; i wonder if she complained about the plaster Greek columns Pres. Obama stood in front of; not that i know if she is an Obama fan but that IS a much more recent example of plaster.

One more thing.....Xb posted about the "blockade" of Japan. Japan was never blockaded. Her assertion is nothing but dung. Hell, we did'nt posess the strength to blockade Japan. There were sanctions placed against Japan such as a stoppage of the selling of scrap steel but that was because of the mass murder the Japanese were perpetrating in China. There was NEVER a blockade of Japan. Our fleet had only recently been posted to Pearl Harbor from The mainland a couple of months prior to the Dec. 7th attack and the Asiatic fleet was composed mostly of a few WW1 era four-stackers. I expect an immediate retraction of the 'blockade' remark by XB. I demand it! Nothing less will do than XBs admission to this error. Posters on any site should have some credibility. I repeat, i demand a retraction of the blockade remark...Semper Fidelis

Oh but I did, (and "she's" a he.) You're talking to someone who hates Obama more than anyone here, because he's doing his job brilliantly; destroying the Democratic Party.

And I'm certainly not going to argue catholicism with a "jack" catholic, nor history either. Especially one that misunderstands the simple need for WHOEVER forgives your sins to be sinless.

My Dad's best friend was a Marine; Dad would be the first to tell you that although Bill had the core of a good man trying to get out, the exterior was a raving racist blustering obnoxious assh*ole.

Still, Bill gave me a gift anyway; hammering the Truth home when no one wanted to hear it (although with him, Truth was few and far between). But by God, it DOES make you stronger.

As far as the blockade of Japan, the majority of our Navy wasn't in Pearl Harbor for R&R. The Japanese had excellent intel. There WAS a blockade.

The bottom line is simple. FDR didn't have the balls (will of the American People) to enter the war against Hitler without being attacked first, so he threatened and goaded the Japanese into doing so. It was a horrific knowing sacrifice of US military based on political cowardice.

My Dad, who worked with the Navy until 1970, knew a lot more than they knew he knew.

XB still sticking with the "blockade of Japan" claim after i just explained that the Pacific Fleet had been home-based in CA. until just a few months before Pearl Harbor. If it was blockading it's port would have been somewhat nearer, don't you all, think? More importantly, the Imperial Japanese fleet was far stronger at the start of the war than the USN and can anyone even remotely familiar with the subject imagine the wildly militaristic Japanese letting a weaker fleet blockade them? Get real, XB. Asfor arguing Catholicism, nice head-fake but the point WAS---you mentioned sinless priest and confession--i did NOT. I simply knocked you off your high horse by illustrating your ignorance on the subject by informing other readers that the Church has never claimed it's priests are 'sinless' and Confession is no longer required to be a Communicant. In other words, your mouth is running ahead of your brain and you got caught. As for your churlish remark about "...priest crawling up on the cross..." the only thing i can attribute that to is a rather low and dirty imagination. By the way, XB, you mentioned you have a physchiatrist friend....ask your physc friend what others in that discipline think about people who claim everyone else around them is insane.

Which is impossible.

Here's what my friend tells me about thinking everyone else is insane:

"Enter through the narrow gate. For wide is the gate and broad is the road that leads to destruction, and many enter through it."

P.S. Most (but not all) conservatives are spiritually insane. ALL ChristianISTS certainly are misled to the point of spiritual insanity.

What you are saying about Priests, et al, is not worth proving you uninformed anymore. I'll just state for the record and for the other readers: what you just said that you said, is NOT what you said. One has only to scroll up a few inches to see you tried to re-position yourself. As for Pearl Harbor i can refer you to Navy.mil, Samuel Elliot Morrison, Gordon Prange. Also a book called Eagle Against the Sun. John Toland's work. Or you could pull up the post attack investigations or for Crissakes just watch Tora Tora Tora. If WE were blockading the island nation of Japan how in the DEVIL did their Fleet get out and sail 6000 miles to Pearl Harbor. Good Grief but you are Stupid (a word i use every few years or so but YOU now wear the crown). You have anointed yourself.

xbjllb

I did not reposition myself. Please post the sentence where I even intimated that the Church taught Priests were perfect instead of alluding to things that don't exist.

What I said AND meant, and I have always been quite clear on the issue in thousands of posts here and elsewhere, is that Catholics who depend solely on Priests to forgive their sins ARE NOT SAVED because Priests are NOT perfect and have NO ABILITY WHATSOEVER TO FORGIVE SIN.

Now, you've had it spelled out every which way from Sunday. Again.

As far as the blockade, it only had to be a threat to force the Japanese to strike, and they did.

The blockade is not the main issue. The issue is FDR throwing away American servicemen in a sacrifice to a forced Japanese attack to force the reluctant US populace into supporting a war in Europe when a surprising great deal of the populace supported Hitler in his anti-semitic views.

Those who harp on the minutiae always do so in order to miss the big picture.
