Hitler is dead. Tojo is dead. Stalin is dead. Khrushchev is dead. Mao is dead. Ho Chi Minh is dead. Pol Pot is dead. Bin Laden is dead. All sorts of candidates that were raised to “BIG” status are dead: Milosevic, Gaddafi, Saddam Hussein, Chavez. Noriega is in jail.
Who’s the big enemy right now?
Putin? Foolishness. If you believe he’s a big enemy, you are being fooled by your leaders.
It’s not any Chinese leader. No one knows his or her name anyway. Is it “China” in general? Foolishness.
Some new jihadist of the week with an unknown name that’s spelled 3 different ways? The latest number 2 man killed by a CIA drone? Foolishness.
The head man in Iran? The head man in Syria? Iran itself? Syria itself? All foolishness.
The leader of ISIS? ISIS itself? Foolishness. Swords into Plowshares Best Price: $5.19 Buy New $15.98 (as of 02:50 EDT - Details)
The Kurds? Erdogan? Turkey? The Nusra front? Hizbollah? Hamas? Kim Jong-un? Foolishness amid endless confusion.
Lord’s Resistance Army? AQAP? Al-Shabab? More foolishness.
One thing all of these have had and now have in common is that they operated in places that were not and are not U.S. territory. These are all false enemies.
The United States Special Operations Command (SOCOM) had forces deployed in 75 countries in 2010. None were U.S. territory. Massive foolishness. If you believe that this is securing America or is a wise use of resources against enemies, you are being fooled by your leaders.
If foreign enemies do not satisfy the quest of America’s leaders for enemies, they manufacture others.
Nameless drug dealers who are intent on corrupting the youth? Foolishness. Why not their parents who can’t raise their children not to use drugs?
Anyone who warms the planet? Foolishness. An Ice Age is overdue.
If deep down you actually believe that any of the figures that our leaders raise up to the status of “enemies” are actually enemies, you are being fooled.
Further, if you actually believe that Congress is justified in committing American forces and resources extracted by taxes to fight these supposed enemies, you are doubly foolish.
Who and what are the real enemies of the American people?
