Foreign Policy

February 19, 2017



Why does it seem to me that... the way the nations of the world are doing things... is backwards when it comes to international relationships? They all have ambassadors to represent the interests of their own countries in each of all of the other countries... for all those services needed by their own citizens and their own businesses... and serve as spokespersons for their own governments on occasions.

When I say "backwards"... I mean that... it can be assumed that when someone is speaking for one's country that... it is a form of braggadocia... even manipulation of facts... and twists the meaning of "diplomacy" into a form of "salesmanship." Promises are made... that might just not materialize. Facts are... skewed... in favor of one's country... to protect one's country... to protect all honor... in both good and unfavorable circumstances.

It just seems to me... that truth can get lost in the process... and all are on the defensive.

What if...
What if each country had someone of their own citizenry to act on behalf of each foreign country... ?? The ambassador of Puerto Rico, for instance, would be an American professor of the history of Puerto Rico... who has studied the history... who has lived with the people of Puerto Rico... but who is hired by our own country to offer both sides of each equation in the relationship... free of the pressures of the Puerto Rican government... to state both good and bad facts... perhaps to even speak in favor of Puerto Rico when it is inconvenient to our own country.

I have often wondered why it isn't done this way. It is the only way towards truth.

And then there is Iran.
We are pressured by international forces to see Iran as the origin of terrorism... but where are the facts??? Iran got screwed. Iran got screwed and humiliated. Iran got screwed and humiliated by Winston Churchill... who is now REVERED by the world as some great champion of diplomacy. Churchill is some kind of hero, according to history... and Iran is a shamed fool.

British Petroleum... controlled by the royal family... represented by the lawyer Churchill... took advantage of a corruptible Iranian king... created the contract... and... like taking candy from a baby... gained control of the whole of Iran's oil... of Iran's future as a developing country... and with a stroke of a pen cavalierly took... and would not renegotiate. Churchill... would not renegotiate. Iran worked for decades through diplomatic lines to gain the renegotiation of the contract... and was coldly refused... again... and again... and again. Where is the honor in that...?

Now... in a twist of facts... similar to their own circumstance... Iran denies the holocost of the Jews. So... how does it feel...??? How does it feel to be denied honor and respect...???

Now... Israel... acting as an emissary of the British government that GAVE Palestine to them... is labeling Iran as a "terrorist nation." Israel has been ruled by former members of their own little terrorist clan... the Irgun... who have set their sights on regaining their "ancient historical lands" which includes half of Syria, Iraq, and Saudi Arabia. The Irgun... began their own history by bombing hotels and terrorizing the countryside... and pass their ambitions off as their historical rights. Like hell it is. It is a guarantee of war... pure and simple... war and power.

Israel doesn't abide by their own treaties. Does anyone wonder that the 1967 war was sparked by Israel acquiring nuclear weapons...??? Why... does Israel need nuclear weapons...?? Are they preparing to continue the genocide of the Palestinian people... and know that the Muslim world is a bit miffed by the whole injustice of this thing...??? Who... is the bully... in this picture...?? And who... is the terrorist...??

It has been said... that America is the one funding the terrorists... perhaps through Saudi Arabia or other countries. Many are paid mercenaries... in a region of turmoil and poverty. Their videos of vicious violence... have been analyzed... and seem to be nothing more than staged acts... to draw the ire of decent people... to give excuse for America to involve itself in another war.

And as America has forced itself on the world... overturning the governments of dozens of nations... bullying itself on everybody for the sake of cheap bananas and cheap oil... and killing millions of citizens of those countries in the process... who can be surprised that Russia has taken up the cause...?? Who can be surprised that Russia... may prove to be the ambassador of TRUTH in this world...???

How did it all get so backwards...??

When we jeapardize our brave soldiers with policies that are not based on fairness and truth... we become the bad guys... to ourselves and to everyone else. How long can our nation stand... when we... are the bad guys...???
