The World At War

Ghana beats the U.S. in a game of football where no one is hurt except for the hearts of a few fans. The other games of the U.S., those of psychopathic profiteering and power, extract a much heaver toll, both at home and abroad.



AFRICOM vs. Ghana in the Round of 16

by Winter Patriot 

We Are The World, and even as I write, we are preparing for another battle, the next in a month-long series of short, controlled skirmishes which will draw the attention of billions of people, although neither the individual skirmishes nor the entire series have any actual significance. Such is the power of modern marketing.

The imminent clash pits the huge and mighty USA -- which just recently admitted running overt and covert "clandestine operations" in at least 75 "sovereign" nations -- against the small and mostly impoverished African nation of Ghana. Despite the disparity in resources, USA is not considered a "prohibitive favorite". Such is the nature of modern football (which Americans insist on calling "soccer").

Recently, at a family gathering, one of the older women -- a mother of three boys, two of whom joined the Marines as teenagers -- was talking about the Vietnam-era anti-war demonstrators. Many people believe that the anti-war movement forced an end to the war. I wouldn't go quite that far, but at the very least the anti-war movement proved to me that some Americans still had functioning brains and hearts.

I don't see that very much anymore; the brains appear to have turned to mush, and the hearts to stone. I was hoping the old woman was about to say something of a similar nature, but instead, looking back on the protests, she said, "That was so difficult for the parents!"

Given the circumstances, there was little I could say. I certainly couldn't say what I was thinking: "The parents!? It was difficult for the parents?? How do you think it was for the children???"

First we had to throw off all the propaganda we'd been fed by our schools, by our parents, by the teevee and the radio, the movies and the newspapers and all the rest of our so-called "culture"; then we had to bring ourselves face-to-face with the fact that our government had adopted a policy of killing millions of innocent people, who had no means to harm us and no intention of doing so, for fun and profit. It was a most repulsive revelation, especially in the midst of all the Disney-crap we'd been "brought up" on.

But even that wasn't enough, because having learned what we had learned, having taken the stands we had taken, we then had to endure the rejection of our parents: and we saw with our own eyes how the people who had brought us into this world, fed us and held us, taught us and loved us, turned against us when we brought to light the most vital truth of their lives, preferring the deadly fiction to which they were accustomed, and with which they were so much more comfortable. And now, "it was so difficult for the parents". Such is the power of modern American stupidity.

None of this makes any difference, of course, to the billions preparing to tune in to the match between USA and Ghana. Very few of the world's sporting fans seem to know or care whether Ghana is seen by USA as nothing but a tiny component of AFRICOM, which in itself is simply one cog in the Pentagon's plan to rule the world by force. I know people who will be standing and cheering and yelling "USA!! USA!!" all afternoon, but I cannot share -- or understand -- their sentiment.

I want to see the whole world screaming for Ghana. I want to see the whole world waking up and aligning itself against the USA, not only in world football but also -- much more significantly -- against the American plan to rule the world.

I want ordinary, "decent", "intelligent" Americans to see the unprovoked murder of even one innocent person as an intolerable outrage; then I want them to understand that their country has murdered millions upon millions of innocent people, not just at one time and in one place but repeatedly, all over the world, for decades. And I want them to realize that their chant of "USA!! USA!!" is -- for the rest of the world -- the most obscene of non-violent gestures.

Not that it matters in the slightest to anyone, but it breaks my heart to realize that the country of my birth is a serial mass murderer, and that even despite the horror that is USA, many of the allegedly most intelligent people I know, including elderly and supposedly wise members of my extended family, still support it, while seeing any prospect of facing the truth about it as "difficult for the parents".

I want the so-called "Family of Man" to take a stand. I want to hear millions and millions -- billions -- of voices, jeering and whistling every time an American player touches the ball. I want to hear billions of voices jeering and whistling every time an American president tells another outrageous lie, every time the American military launches another unprovoked attack against innocent people, every time ... every time ...

I know none of this will happen. But then again this is football, where everything is artificial and nothing matters. Surely a battered old man with a broken heart can have a dream now and then, can't he? Isn't that what the beautiful game is all about? {source}

For Anyone Feeling Overwhelmed
Hang On, because the freaks are just getting started.

Take a deep breath and consider all the good people who are in the same boat.
YOU ARE NOT ALONE.

We are witness to what out of control greed and evil can do.

When I look around me I see many, many good people from the left and the right who have been deceived and are being lead down the wrong path.

At some point these good people will awaken and like a sliding scale will eventually be in the same boat we are.

We must be ready and willing to welcome these victims aboard and aid them in their education as to what is going on and how to survive.

Take heart, do not despair our ancestors had great challenges and they survived as we will, as well. Be alert, be pro active and be true to yourself and whatever we must face, we face it together.

I have grown wiser and more thoughtful in the last three years more than in my whole 60 years. I am a better person today than I was yesterday. By the time this is over I should be just about damn perfect. LOL

Don't forget to have a laugh, it helps to relieve stress. {source:

  1. "USA.... USA... US.. What, we lost?"

    "Waaaa, waaaa, boohoo..waaa"

    Seriously, today in the USA, there will be more people disheartened and bummed out from the USA team losing a football/soccer match then will be despondent over our never ending wars against the Muslim world.

  2. Well, looky here! It's "battered, broken-hearted old" Winter Patriot posting about the USA -- and he TOTALLY FORGOT TO MENTION THAT IT'S ALL BECAUSE OF THE JEWS!! He forgot that the USA IS A WHOLLY-OWNED SUBSIDIARY OF JEW-WORLD, INC. (and yes, I am its CEO)!! Looks like someone forgot his Jew-hatin' Wheaties this morning. Poor battered, broken-hearted old Winter Patriot.

  3. Incidentally, the only reason I posted that here is that WP and his chicken***t friends have banned me from their "community" blog. I guess their idea of "free speech" isn't so "free" when the truth comes a little too close for comfort....

  4. It's because you have no truth, only divisive lies. Another day, same grim.

  5. "Divisive lies." That's rich, 'Kenny.' What lie -- that you and your pals believe that there's a big Jewish Conspiracy That Controls America? Go ahead and deny it, then, 'Kenny,' for all your readers to see. Then maybe we'll have something to talk about. But if you believe it, then quit pussyfooting around it. Have the courage of your convictions, for god's sake.

    I'll tell you what's divisive: It's coming into the blogosphere looking for sympatico people with similar political beliefs, and finding that most of them really hate you because you happen to be Jewish.

  6. I appreciated your words, Kenny. Odd how the tribe that never tires of putting down the USA and making fun of generic citizens comes around to discredit your words of hope and support. Some of the biggest critics of what has happened to our country are Jewish, Glen Greenwald, for example. So I have never believed that this is a movement against the Jews, but against those who have used Judaism as an excuse to exploit power for their own agenda... i.e., Iran.

  7. thanks anon at 3:14 pm.

    Gilad Atzmon is another jewish critic who is not afraid to speak his mind.

    I suppose grim would have a problem with him too.

  8. Huh? WTF? I AM a Jewish critic who is not afraid to speak his mind, you moron(s). But your bull biscuits (to use a favorite WP phrase) that THE JEWS CONTROL EVERYTHING is just that: antisemitic bullshit. So just come out and own up to it. Jesus H. Fucking Christ.
