Moral Leadership, Disarmament and Latent Racism

Pope Benedict said the following today:

In a clear reference to Iran, he said: "Concerning the international crises linked to nuclear power, may an honourable solution be found for all parties, through serious and honest negotiations."

In another part of the speech, the Pope defended Israel's right to exist, a passage which appeared to be an indirect criticism of statements by Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, Iranian President, that the Jewish state should be eliminated.

But he also called for the establishment of a Palestinian state.

He said: "May the international community, which re-affirms Israel's just right to exist in peace, assist the Palestinian people to overcome the precarious conditions in which they live and to build their future, moving towards the constitution of a state that is truly their own."


Traditional Disarmament
The current approach to disarmament by the US is based on racism, a plague that the US has wrestled with since its inception.

During the era of SALT treaties with the Soviet Union, the negotiation was based on mutual respect. The Soviets were enemies, but they were responsible human beings and the goal was a strategic reduction in nuclear arms on both sides.

Similarly, the NPT treaty signed by many non-nuclear nations was based on respect and help with nuclear research. The use of nuclear weapons against smaller states was never an issue.

Single Superpower and the Racist Appeal
After the US becomes a single superpower, natural and inevitable hubris come in and the new policy becomes: “We can build nuclear arsenals and threaten to use them, no one else can or should.”

This logic-defying approach to disarming others at the point of a bayonet needs a premise for it to be rational: that the white man and the permanent members of the UN Security Council and Israel are rational and human, while others are sub-human, irresponsible and unreliable.

The history of the last two centuries belies this basic premise. So, it had to be propagated by the wink-wink nod-nod racism propagated by the highest officials of the US. Just as they propagated slavery and segregation. “Muslims love death. Ahmedinejad is irrational. blah blah. Saddam is evil. Osama is the incarnation of Satan. blah blah. wink wink. They can be killed, they are not equals. We shoot at them, we are liberators – they shoot at us – they are terrorists”

Disarming other nations will NOT work unless it is a mutual disarmament. Asking others not to build nuclear weapons while INCREASING our arsenal and threatening to use it is nothing but the insanity of a drunken bully. It cannot be sold. It cannot be accepted. And the media, citizens and the academics of the US are complicit.

American Racism Bites Back
Give me freedom or give me death! This was not only the slogan of a certain American pioneer but of all people around the world – especially in this information age when the world is but a village. This is the cry of the Palestinian and the cry of the Iraqi and the cry of every patriotic under occupation. People have given more sacrifices for freedom around the world than the Americans ever did in gaining their independence from the British.

This latent racism that is now growing unchecked is coming back to bite the USA. I travel over the world and it sickens me to see people cheering any misfortune of the US, from Latin America to China to the Middle East to India to Africa.

It sickens me to see how a country founded on equality and the greatest principles of the Protestant Reformation is now being chided by the Catholic pope, and there is NO answer, just bombs.

Others Should Step Up

It will take two centuries, perhaps never, for the US to gain its moral leadership that it has so miserably lost in the last 10 years. Until that happens, internal US conditions will deteriorate, for the US economy was built on the backs of the people of the world, and the money of the world, coming to a land of freedom. It was not God's gift to a superior race – it was the labour of Chinese, European, African and Russian farmers, labourers and scientists, mixed with the capital and the savings of the world that led to this citadel of freedom and liberty being what it is.

Sadly, it is time for others to take the moral leadership now. A leader leads morally, never by force. Once the leader becomes the butt of ridicule, the game is over.

Racism in the US has never gone away or even decreased. It has just shifted from population to population. For example, currently it is socially acceptable to be a disgusting SUV driving homophoebic, anti-Muslim, anti-poor ,etc. asshole. In fact,in many areas of the US including the white house, Congress, Citigroup, Capitol One, and Walmart it is quite fashionable to be a neo-racist.

We're getting down to the wire, so we better pray that someone takes a stand soon. Hopefully, the momentum in the military will not subside. At this point, I believe they're the world's only chance.

Isn't that the scary part. Have you heard the song Letterbomb by Green Day? It sums this all up pretty well.

Cultural Differences Well Marked:
Anti-Racist Is Anti-Western
(Mighty Thor, 16 Apr 06)

U above posters only demonstrate ur UTTERLY ALIEN AND FOREIGN anti-Americanness, ur anti-Western contempt as natural disposition as u so brainlessly, smugly, and presumptuously denounce that outstanding VIRTUE OF RACISM, loyalty. Tell me, do u "people" ("non-racists") actually walk on two feet or do u still scamper about on all fours?

Thus u (above "non-racists") sublimely demonstrate the truth of health and naturalness of racialistic bias; u mud-people are antithetic enemies through and through psychologically, metaphysically, aesthetically, and indeed every way. U are dread enemies of the white Christian and Western people.

We people of the West in general, and we native white Christians of the USA utterly reject scum mud-people, the descendents of non- or anti-racism, the equivalent of the "orcs" of Tolkein's "Lord of the Rings" literature/movies.

For u non- or anti-racists are mere satanic, totally foreign and alien soldiers of the Jews and "Sadducean" accomplices among gentiles.

Racism is most excellent virtue of loyalty along with reason and physical health. Racism is no less than virtue enshrined in the 4th Biblic commandment ("Honor thy Parents").

That's why and how we white Christians have such difficulty tolerating u mud-inferiors, ur putrid culture being not human but only appropriate for slaves and draft-animals. Non- or anti-racism is simply HERESY and cannot be tolerated by any healthy organism(s), especially humanity.

It seems to escape u inferiors that racism is AXIOMATIC: u must (logically) be loyal to some race, ultimately at least mixed or non-mixed. The only question then is what race u're loyal (racist) for. Note American founders were absolute racists. All healthy people are naturally racist (loyal).

"Citisucks," now u see what the war is really all about--cultural values, Western, hence objective vs. non-Western--Judaic and subjectivistic. We white Westerners and Christians have always ultimately upheld racism as foremost virtue. "Corporate terrorists" are simply outward manifestations, the hired assassins and mercenaries.

And qrswave, now u see the foundation in human psychology for the Federal Reserve Bank (Fed) counterfeiting Fraud--not essentially different fm non- or anti-racist delusion and heresy.

Salvation of the USA, reversal of Spenglerian "Decline of the West," is repudiation of heresy of anti-reason, hence anti-racism delusion (among other heresies and delusions).

CONCLUSION: The great source of that heresy, disease, and unreason is fascination, obsession, and (Mammonistic) addiction, with subjectivism, hence for example, toleration of Judaism and every other subjectivist pretext. (Subjectivism is hubris.) Honest elections and death to the Fed. Thor

Your conclusion is very good - and your racial intellectual capability is there for all to see. :) Every human has an identity and belongs to some race(s). That is NOT racism. When a race tries to dehumanize others in order to steal from them is criminal and immoral.

And all such thiefs and tyrants have been humbled and made to bite the dust. So it is written, and so it shall be.

The great white race will one day again be begging for crumbs at the tables of other civilizations if they do not stop criminal activities. It is that simple. Be proud of your race, but do not use it to enslave others - by pretending equality and freedom.

Amen, Akber.

Down with arrogance and oppression.

Well, it is hard to demand that a nation should disarm in principle if the demander has nukes...but that said...

The fear over Iran is not completely based on racism. This is a nation that has publicly stated it wants to wipe Israel off the map. It's not as if Iran is the UAE. Fears over Dubai Ports World actually were mostly based on racism.

Nonetheless, the US is the only nation that ever used nukes...so really, it has no moral authority to prevent anyone from using any nukes.
