Film, 'The Coming War...', Pilger, and more....

Coverage of the dire situation in the Yemen has been limited. When mentioned, we see as always; it is the unprotected, women children invalids who are destined to suffer most. The unprotected sadly are the payers. Britain although aware of the destruction of hospitals/ schools-all the rest has implied this will be investigated, however apparently continues the supply of arms to Saudi Arabia.
It is difficult to see that the arms are to do with Defence and especially in regard to Iran? Looking at the picture of the destruction of the Yemen, how this can be termed defence? Yemen is yet another country being devastated by the supply of armaments by the West. Resorting to a ma- Yemen lies to the south of Saudi Arabia not between it and Iran. Ports on the Arabian Sea between the Suez Canal and the Persian Gulf may be of interest?
The idea as, I suspected is yet to bring another country, in the longer term: Iran to its knees. Israel voiced this some time ago. We will be told and have been: Iran is a danger to us, as Iraq was.
I look back nostalgically now to the Cold War. There was a balance between the amount of destruction the Soviets and the American could inflict. That was possibly one of the reasons we did not have total destruction. Since the fall of the Berlin Wall 1989 and the disintegration which followed of the Soviet Union, there has been no balance. The American/West became the over-riding power. Since the horror of Hiroshima and Nagasaki the world has been so horrified about the idea of more nuclear horror this had become anathema.
After the Soviet Union’s fall the World has become much more dangerous. There has been no other Country keeping Washington in check. A Cold War peace was achieved through fear: fear of the bomb, the fear of total destruction. Leaders apparently display an awe and respect publicly of a Nation whose strength is to unleash poison- perhaps to the destruction of all life as we are able to see it today.
Previous civilisations have usually excelled in developing learning, language, industry, art- only plunderers like the Huns went in for death and destruction, and offered no replacement.The film last night on ITV by John Pilger “The Coming War on China” confirmed Washington is expanding its nuclear arsenal. It excels in making arms, which it depends on for its economy. There is a necessity, as it views it - to try the latest out. This formula has worked in the past so they have little reason to think outside the formula and think of other creations for the betterment of human kind, only to destroy it, or more exactly everyone other than themselves- or maybe those of use.
Bikini Atoll is part of the Marshall Islands where nuclear testing starting in the 50’s has continued - poisoned it and, its inhabitants (who had to leave) and continues to terrify them by testing missiles sent from California at a regular intervals. This is all part of a plan said to be named 'Full Spectrum Dominance'.
The islands were taken over in 1946 as a Trust with the welfare of islanders guaranteed. The 23 islands are now the most radioactively contaminated on Earth. Every day for 12 years a Hiroshima equivalent bomb has been dropped.
Initially inhabitants imbibed or were injected with radioactive substances. They have been monitored and assessed by US scientists over this time. “Guinea Pigs” is the term given, and how the Islanders who are left view themselves and their dead family members. Some were treated to see the sights in the US and assessment of radioactivity was made, the sufferer having to sit in a metal box. Early on the Marshall Island inhabitants were termed “Savages”.
The Marshall Islands with their fish, and fruit could have been termed a paradise prior to the US and their scientists. These islands had sustained themselves for thousands of years. But strategically placed between US and the East Asia they were of interest, to be used as a pivot to Asia: and far enough away not to contaminate other land masses where there could be potential for complaint.
Numerous US air bases and missile sites now encircle China and many war ships patrol the waters. The film explains Vision 2020; the number it is intended to happen. A bit like 11th September which was the date the Generals in Chile launched their attack on the civilian population. This was deemed the first war against people who could not protect themselves. It is interesting the one in NY on the same date decades later, was the trigger for the war on people who could not protect themselves in the ME.
Returning to the horrendous continued suffering by inhabitants of the Marshall Islands the big hydrogen bomb Bravo, and the massive fall out inspired 'the Bikini'. The Bikini was named as a celebration and there were live comments about creating explosions around the females wearing them when it was first introduced! Bikini Atoll, the island is no longer habitable.
China’s economy could take over number one position in the World. The Generals and men in the Pentagon perceive this as a threat. Recently I have observed men, or some- are linked into a binary system. It is them or someone else. It cannot be both.
I believe this is to do with the propagation of their DNA. For some reason also when they win they take all and they like to see the loser has nothing - and suffer! This is especially apparent in the White male and those prone to schadenfreude.
As unruly children squabble without the ability to share and treat others with the same respect it is so with particular nations. The advancement of technology especially nuclear with the potential of destruction of all life: together, with this continued mode of thought does not bode well for the future of life, as we know it on this Planet.
