Thoughts on the Torture Report

Thoughts on the 2002 torture report. I'm not saying everything they did was right, but I look at groups like ISIS and know in my gut some of what they did back in 2002 is far from torture.

Growing Tensions in Hong Kong Bigger Threat to the World Than ISIS

As police defend their rough handling of protesters, the growing tensions in Hong Kong pose a bigger threat to the United States and the world than ISIS. I keep pointing this out. Our government and everyone else in the world should be paying close attention to China. If the Chinese don't resolve this growing conflict between communism versus democracy, it could seriously impact the United States and the world economically having a crippling effect not only causing shortages considering the amount of products produced in China, but currency because China is on of the biggest lenders. Nations need to prepare themselves for the worst. Peking promised Hong Kong autonomy when the city state returned to China from the United Kingdom. Now, the ruling communist party wants to reel the Hong Kong political leaders in by offering the people only communist party members as choices during the election with no primaries. Considering the communist Chinese history of military action against dissidents within Chinese and neighboring countries on which the wish to impose their will, the world needs to decide what if any plan of action it will take when Peking attacks Hong Kong with military force.

A Poem Years in the Making by a Very Talented Poet Please Share


The Woeful September

 

Here at Ground Zero,

    my soul could hear

    the fear-sired cries

    of the maimed and martyrized.

Here at Ground Zero,

    wrathful phrases—

    alien as battlefields

    before my being became a being—

    exploded off my tongue,

    and this wrathfulness—

    deadlier than a butcher's cleaver—

    lacerated away love with hate. 

Here at Ground Zero,

    I lamented

    the twin metal-constructed mountains.

    I filled urns with tears for each stranger

    who was assassinated

    by Lucifer-conceived hijackers.

Here at Ground Zero,

    the police, firefighters, paramedics

    and construction workers,

    Archangel-Michael-comparable heroes,

    were trying to sever

    tragedy’s girders

    on the buried masses.

Here at Ground Zero,

    I realized,

    despite the bereavement-filled rubble,

    the brave made the vanquish   

    of numerous natives

    and visitors appear victorious.

Here at Ground Zero,

    our rescuers declared

    why zealotry-impelled cells

    could not defeat a need for

    “Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness.”

Here at Ground Zero,

     I saw respect remove a woeful wound.

Arab Spring or Arab Joke?


As a concerned American watching more and more depressing news reports from the Middle East, I was taken aback when I recently came across some anti-American propaganda.
 
 
The Middle East needs to wake up not America. I was happy when I saw the Arab Spring taking place thinking good for the oppressed finally throwing off the yokes of tyranny, but now you're standing around waiting for someone else to put everything together for you and pointing fingers of blame at one country half way around the world as to why you cannot rise up to the task of rebuilding your countries and forming governments that are not oppressive in their own right? America didn’t get formed overnight by a country on the other side of the planet. We had very little help throwing off our own oppressors, the real imperialists, England, Spain and France to name a few empires from history. We were conquests and territories to be played with like pawns in chess. Once we broke free we didn’t have countries lining up to help us. We had predatory creditors lending to us to reap profits off the new country, and when they thought our guard was down they tried to re-establish dominance over us. Yes, we rose to be a player on the world stage, and I don’t think that happens if you’re asleep; however, my point is look to yourselves not America to be your nations’ salvation. From the outside you appear to be asleep, replacing bad governments guilty of torture, theft and murder with worse governments guilty of torture, theft and murder done with religious fervor. America cannot change your intolerance and hatred of others or your philosophy of destruction. You must decide to build instead of destroy, to live instead of die.
