The American betrayal of the Assyrians : Comments

By David Chibo, published 1/8/2014

In The Grand Chessboard: American Primacy and Its Geostrategic Imperatives, Brzezinski put forward a vision of creating a 'global-zone of percolating violence', leading to the break-up of the Middle East,

Early last month French bank BNP Paribas BNPP.PA was fined almost $9 billion by US courts for apparently violating US sanctions against Sudan, Cuba and Iran.
A couple days ago the Hague court fined Russia $50 billion for expropriating the assets of oil giant Yukos.
I wonder what would happen if the Christian communities in the Middle East, perhaps led by Chaldean Catholic Patriarch Sako and joined by he Yezidies, the Turkmen and Shabak Shiite communities, were to open court proceedings in the US and/or in the Hague asking the US to pay restitution for the loss of their homes, their livelihoods and their entire way of life.
It is increasingly clear that the chaos across the Islamic Crescent is down to US meddling-by-design, and as they are so quick to take others to court, I do wonder how they would fare facing charges themselves.

Hi David,

Sometimes the progressive rhetoric in the form of narrative theory reaches the point when all rational thought abandons you. It becomes so overwhelming in its complexity, so meaningless in its relevance and so self serving in its creativity, that the only place such words can exist are in your own self referential world.

If your meanderings had any merit, then those who are slitting throats, chopping off heads and shooting Islamists, Christians and anyone else upon whom they can vent their savagery, would be using your confected excuse for their behavior. But they donít.

What is just as evil, is the constant appeasing and excusing of their behavior by Western progressives in the pursuit of every perception with which they disagree. Such people have moved from being part of the problem to being a primary cause.

That David includes people like YOU.

Ignore people Spindoc David, they don't like the truth.

Perhaps the truth will go mainstream as OLO seems to printing more of it.

It's always easy to play "Blame America", and goes down well with the frootloops everywhere.
Unfortunately the Americans made the same mistake that the frootloops do, they think of the Arabs/Muslims as normal people, and they plainly aren't.
Theirs is a violent and Medieval culture that doesn't sit well in this or the 20th century, and until such time as they change that significantly we will all pay the price.
