The Hypocritical USA: On the Road to Damascus/Armageddon

Firstly, we ask did not the US support Iraq in its use of chemical weapons in the Iraq/Iran war? Did not the US use chemical weapons in the battle of Fallujah? Did not The US's client state Israel use chemical weapons in Gaza? How then can the US and her allies decry the use of such weapons by the Syrian regime?

If true be told, there are no good guys in Syria, except for the suffering masses. Most of the forces fighting there are of the most dubious character, whether Sunni, Shia, Alawite, et al. This is a geo-political battle for shaping the future of the Middle East, and America is in the middle, yes, in bed with the most despicable elements in the Syrian battle, especially Saudi Arabia, Jordan and the Gulf states, who are in an ancient war between Sunni and Shia, an animosity that has roots going back to the death of Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) and the struggle for succession. Would the people select the successor (Sunni) or would the successor be from the prophet's bloodline (Shia).

The Sunni won out and the Shia have been anathema ever since, not considered real Muslims (Shirk) and thus can be eliminated as infidels. In America, Sunnis consider Nation of Islam members in the same light. The only real Muslims are Sunnis, all other sects must be eliminated by any means necessary.

So the Syrian quagmire is multifaceted and complex, a geo-political race to stop Shia expansion from the Tigris and Euphrates to the Mediterranean. Israel is in tandem with the US and her allies in Saudi Arabia, Jordan and the Gulf states that Shia expansion must be aborted. The Sunnis are destabilizing
Iraq as we speak, including Al Quida, ironically, with US support. Alas, the US is supporting Al Quida in Syria. Remember, in politics there are no permanent friends or enemies, only permanent interests.

Surely, we are about to witness the War of Armageddon, that last battle before the return of the Messiah or Mahdi. Christians and Muslims await this battle with great anticipation. The fire this time has arrived.

Look at the map of the Middle East, look at the flash points, Libya, Egypt, Yemen, Somalia, Iraq, Iran, Afghanistan, Pakistan, Syria, Occupied Palestine, Bahrain. As Ray Charles told us about the Danger Zone, "The world is in an uproar, the Danger Zone is everywhere...."

Finally, it appears these events are inevitable and must play out according to the Divine Plan. Let the actors take their roles to perform this tragicomedy. Just be clear who the villains are, the victims and who the victors shall be. Don't be deceived by appearances, look into the deep structure where ultimate truth lies hidden under half truths and fiction perpetuated by the Monkey Mind Media as it creates the world of make believe.

Two Poems for the People of Syria

Oh, Mohja
how much water can run from rivers to sea
how much blood can soak the earth
the guns of tyrants know no end
a people awakened are bigger than bullets
there is no sleep in their eyes
no more stunted backs and fear of broken limbs
even men, women and children are humble with sacrifice
the old the young play their roles
with smiles they endure torture chambers
with laughs they submit to rape and mutilations
there is no victory for oppressors
whose days are numbered
as the clock ticks as the sun rises
let the people continue til victory
surely they smell it on their hands
taste it on lips
believe it in their hearts
know it in their minds
no more backwardness no fear
let there be resistance til victory.
--Marvin X/El Muhajir

Syrian poet/professor Dr. Mohja Kahf

Oh Marvin, how much blood can soak the earth?

The angels asked, “will you create a species who will shed blood

and overrun the earth with evil?” 

And it turns out “rivers of blood” is no metaphor: 

see the stones of narrow alleys in Duma

shiny with blood hissing from humans? Dark

and dazzling, it keeps pouring and pumping

from the inexhaustible soft flesh of Syrians,

and neither regime cluster bombs from the air,

nor rebel car bombs on the ground,

ask them their names before they die. 

They are mowed down like wheat harvested by machine,

and every stalk has seven ears, and every ear a hundred grains.

They bleed like irrigation canals into the earth.

Even one little girl in Idlib with a carotid artery cut

becomes a river of blood. Who knew she could be a river 

running all the way over the ocean, to you,

draining me of my heart? And God said to the angels, 

“I know what you know not.” But right now,

the angels seem right. Cut the coyness, God;

learn the names of all the Syrians.

See what your species has done.

--Mohja Kahf
