“Come Monday…” is a weekly series that will involve a review of (or commentary about) websites, movies, documentaries, television shows, sports, music, and whatever else may tickle my fancy at the time. Be assured that these reviews will be generally positive, as in accordance to the Jimmy Buffett song “Come Monday.” This is subject to change, however. In fact, I would be most derelict in my duties to neglect going on a rant every once in a while. For rants promote change, and change can be good—right? Therefore, since good is generally considered as being a positive force in 99.3% of the parallel universes that I am aware of, even a rant could be considered as being something positive, and a genuine hissy-fit would be even better (so I’m told).
First of all, please let me make it as abundantly clear as possible that this is not meant as an attack upon our military—certainly not the men and women who actually served in Iraq and Afghanistan. For they did (which many are still doing) what they were ordered to do, and for the most part, they did it honorably.
No, this is meant as an attack upon our stupid leaders in Washington, D.C., and with plans being made to send advisers back into Iraq, I am trying real hard to be diplomatic in my criticism. You see, I am not calling our leaders stupid in the way you probably think. I am calling them stupid in a spiritual-sense, which is really not all that different from calling them stupid in a natural-sense since all intelligence is actually in the hands of our Heavenly Father, but that is a discussion for another day, I suppose.
Okay, for the benefit of those who do not get it, we (as in all of mankind) are not nearly as free to do as we will in this world as what most would like to believe. For how we see and react to things is actually completely in our Heavenly Father’s hands—even if He just allows us to so as we will.
The thing is, however, that our Heavenly Father will often give us a clue (even to those who do not want to believe that He even exists) when we are about to make an error in judgment, with it all depending upon what He wants to accomplish in a given situation determining whether He makes it abundantly clear to someone that they are about to really mess up or keeps them in the dark until the damage is done. With it being well-documented (even in a natural-sense) that the politics of Iraq has been based upon religious ideologies for centuries, how much more of a clue does He have to give President Obama that mere military might is not going to solve the problem? Hence, we have a really [stupid] president in office.
In all fairness, [W.] was not any sharper. For he went in there and kicked over a fire anthill, which destabilized the entire region.
No, I am not suggesting that [Hussein] should have been left alone. Neither am I suggesting that the current threat from [ISIS] should be ignored. Nonetheless, there is a much better way to go than the road we have taken and are about to travel back down again.
ISIS is [Sunni]. Therefore, the Saudis, who are mostly Sunni and have the most to lose by an all-out war between ISIS and [Shias] backed by Iran, should be asked to temporarily take over management of Iraq after we take some fire out of the ISIS [jihad], which has been stoked by the current Shia president of Iraq’s gross mistreatment of Sunnis. For I believe that the Saudis would deal fairly with both the Sunnis and Shias in Iraq, which should settle things down quite nicely. If the Saudis refuse to get directly involved, we should leave Iraq be.
No, that would not be good news for the European economies much more dependent upon middle-eastern oil supplies than we are these days. So, let them take the lead, with us playing a strictly supporting role. For that is what good allies should do—right?
Alas, Iraq looks like a no-win situation from our own ground-based points of view, but it is really not. Ah, but who is so blind as the one who does not want to see?
