Today I read through an article on Lewrockwell.com regarding
increased seismic activity noted at Yellowstone and its potentially dire
foreboding of what could be coming. This got me thinking about
something which continually surfaces in my mind about the legitimately
unhinged actions of a handful of scheming, bought-and-paid-for
politicians who are engaging in attempts to threaten nuclear-tipped
Russia, N Korea, and China to the point they will be pushed into a
corner with no other choice but to fight their way out…,which means
nuclear war and unleashing the feared apocalypse all nuclear nations
heretofore strove to steer clear of.
Those of us raised during the Cold War (1949-1991) realized during
the collapse of the Soviet Union the kind of bullet we all had dodged.
Our generation should be THE keenest and sensitive to the madness which
has gripped both our leadership and the general population by efforts to
reignite what we all thought would be a thing of the past. Alarmingly,
this doesn’t seem to be the case.
The enormity of recklessness and arrogance of the US Government is
almost nightmarish, and the complicity of the media and both sides of
the political aisle is simply disgusting. They are literally dreaming
up baseless assertions against Russia, China, and N Korea insisting that
we are either being “attacked,” or under “threat” of being attacked,
and setting up three of the most deadly nuclear nations on earth (who
have done us no harm, by the way) and DARING them to fire.
What is the most sickening tenet of all this reckless irresponsibility is this:
We cannot stop a catastrophic Yellowstone eruption, nor can we stop a
life-killing asteroid. Science has shown both events have already
occurred in our past (several times) and WILL occur again. These events
also can occur with no real warning. We are powerless to stop them.
However, we have the power to stop practically all destructive
man-made events from happening…, including nuclear war which would have
the same perilous effects a super-volcano or asteroid would have.
Surely, these leaders know this. They must. How could they not? Yet,
they press on in their aggression.
What, other than collective, bi-partisan madness, is responsible for such breathtaking indifference to such glaring stupidity?
I find myself wishing/hoping they’re bluffing, and that they’ll call
off the dogs once it becomes apparent the nations in the crosshairs cock
their revolvers and prepare to pull the trigger. But, my instincts
tell me THIS gang means business.
I never thought in my entire life that I would fear the actions of
“my” government more than the life-snuffing effects of a super-eruption
or a 5 km asteroid.
Robert Oppenheimer, designer of the US atomic bomb who had grave
reservations later in life for doing so, visited Truman to express his
revulsion of a second bomb dropped on Japan as being unnecessary and
calling for a ban on any further nuclear weapons manufacturing. For his
efforts, Oppenheimer was shown the door by Truman who angrily exclaimed
“I don’t want to ever see that SOB in this office again!” Truman’s
belligerent insouciance to ‘Peace’ appears to have manifested itself
into every subsequent presidency since.
Surviving a super-eruption or asteroid impact is possible depending
on factors controlling the severity of the event. However, evidence
from such events in the past have shown most to be life killers. The
same can be said of nuclear events. The evidence we have from the
Japanese bombings is horrific, and we now have countless times more
weapons which are thousands of times more deadly and destructive. Who
in his or her right mind would ever – in their most fevered dream –
actually believe any war could be won, much less any life could survive
the nuclear onslaught which WILL occur if Washington has its way?
But, yes…, these folks appear to be that crazy.
If not these irresponsible politicians, the American public should
familiarize themselves with the passage Vishnu proclaimed in the (Hindu)
Bhagavad Gita which Oppenheimer recalled as he witnessed his invention
going off for the first time:
“I have become death; the destroyer of worlds.”
