Marco Rubio and Our Wretched Destiny


Possible GOP vice presidential nominee comes out of the closet – as a neocon

by Justin Raimondo

The neocons are back. Indeed, they never really went away: instead, they just   went to ground temporarily until the smoke cleared over Iraq, and now they’re   right out front pushing war with Iran, “regime change” in Syria, and   hailing Obama’s (and Mitt Romney’s) favorite foreign policy book as the Received   Wisdom of the Moment. Sen. Joseph Lieberman may be on his way out of American   public life – thank the gods! – but Sen. Marco Rubio is in the wings waiting   to fill his shoes. In Lieberman’s introduction to Rubio’s   foreign policy speech at the Brookings Institution, the tireless warmonger   hailed the junior Senator from Florida as heir to the tradition of Reagan and   Truman: he left out Scoop Jackson, but Rubio, in his opening remarks, was quick   to fill the gap:

“In my brief time in the Senate, I’ve had the chance to get to know   Joe, and learn from him. He represents a view of America’s role in the world   in the tradition of Democratic leaders from Franklin Roosevelt and Harry Truman   through John F. Kennedy and Scoop Jackson.”

Jackson, of course, was the cold war era Democratic Senator from Boeing   Washington state famous for his belligerence, whose underlings populated the   national security apparatus of the Reagan administration and authored the infamous   fantasy-based “Team B”   assessment of Soviet military capabilities. These folks later came to be known   as the neoconservatives,   a right-wing sect that originated   on the far left and gave us the Iraq war under Bush II’s tutelage.

In any case, Rubio looks to be an energetic stand-in for Lieberman, who never   fails to mobilize every cliché at hand to defend America’s role as the   world’s policeman. In his opening, the Florida Senator and prospective Vice   Presidential pick did not disappoint:

“I am always cautious about generalizations but until very recently,   the general perception was that American conservatism believed in a robust and   muscular foreign policy. That was certainly the hallmark of the foreign policy   of President Reagan, and both President Bush’s. But when I arrived in the Senate   last year I found that some of the traditional sides in the foreign policy debate   had shifted.
“On the one hand, I found liberal Democrats and conservative Republicans   working together to advocate our withdrawal from Afghanistan, and staying out   of Libya. On the other hand I found myself partnering with Democrats like Bob   Menendez and Bob Casey on a more forceful foreign policy. In fact, resolutions   that I co-authored with Senator Casey condemning Assad and with Senator Menendez   condemning fraudulent elections in Nicaragua were held up by Republicans. I   recently joked that today, in the U.S. Senate, on foreign policy, if you go   far enough to the right, you wind up on the left.”

That’s a real knee-slapper, isn’t it? While Rubio won’t ever be known for his   sense of humor, he may have a shot a becoming famous for his fatuity. For the   idea that interventionism is “muscular,” rather than a debilitating   drain on our limited resources is yet another cliché rapidly wearing   thin. How “muscular” can a bankrupt   empire be?

Furthermore, Rubio makes it clear he knows nothing about the history of conservatism,   which has only recently become a sounding board for the Teddy   Roosevelt types and the “cakewalk”   crowd who assured us the Iraq war would be a triumphant march to glory No doubt   he’s never heard of Sen.   Robert A. Taft, and is entirely ignorant of the pre-World   War II history   of the conservative movement – but why comment on a subject about which one   knows nothing, especially in front of an auditorium full of policy wonks?

As for whether it’s our business to cavil over allegedly “fraudulent   elections” in Nicaragua, one has to wonder why he isn’t more concerned   about election fraud right in his home state of Florida. After Broward   county, who are we to lecture the Nicaraguans?

Having concluded that “if you go far enough to the right, you wind up   on the left,” a reasonably intelligent person might be expected to challenge   the veracity of these categories – but not Sen. Rubio, who goes on to complain   that even his constituents are challenging the wisdom of empire:
“And I found this sentiment not just in the Senate, but back at home   as well. For example, many loyal supporters back home were highly critical of   my decision to call for a more active US role in Libya.”

Rubio’s constituents, who live in a state with one of the highest   foreclosure rates in the nation, and are suffering horribly from the economic   and social consequences of the Great Recession, are part of “another trend   in our body politic,” says the Senator, “one that increasingly says   it is time to focus less on the world and more on ourselves.”

How dare his constituents and loyal supporters care more about their foreclosed   and way-underwater homes, their lost jobs, their crime-ridden streets and crumbling   infrastructure, than about installing a “pro-American” Islamist government   in Libya! Rubio is here to tell them what Harry Truman and Joe Lieberman would   tell them, which is: Read Bob Kagan’s book! It’s all in there!

Ah yes, that book: the one our President has favorably referred to:   the author, Robert Kagan, is one   of Romney’s foreign policy gurus. Washington is bipartisan in its reading   habits as well as its foreign policy. The Kagan clan, which has made a family   business out of advancing the neoconservative policy agenda, is well-connected   in the Imperial City: their policy recommendations have never failed to argue   in favor of the most “muscular” expression of American “strength,”   which is invariably defined as military strength. In Bob Kagan’s latest infusion   of Kaganite wisdom, we are told we can continue to borrow money from the Chinese   to conquer pacify Afghanistan (and the rest of the world) because   everyone else is just as broke as we are, and there’s no one else to protect   and defend the “world order.”

Kagan’s book is so popular in Washington elite circles because it flatters   its audience. He’s telling them what they want to hear: without their pretensions   to global suzerainty to sustain it, the world “order” would lapse   into chaos. Republican and Democrat, “liberal” and “conservative,”   this is the shared assumption when it comes to American foreign policy. Any   challenge to this orchestrated consensus is met with panicked outrage, and is   considered so dangerous that it cannot be allowed to go unanswered. Which is   why Rubio explicitly deferred his expressed “disagreement with this administration   on foreign policy” in favor of the far more important task of attacking   his constituents and loyal supporters who question his full-throated support   for the President’s Libyan adventurism and the current enthusiasm for a repeat   in Syria. Forget Obama and the election: as far as Rubio is concerned it’s time   to go after those in his own party who share his constituents’ skepticism. Rubio   tells us he is intent on

“Reminding people of how good a strong and engaged America has been   for the world. In making that argument, I have recently begun to rely heavily   on Brookings fellow, Bob Kagan’s timely book, The World America Made. Bob begins   his book with a useful exercise: asking readers to imagine what kind of world   order might have existed from the end of World War II until the present absent   American leadership. Could we say with certainty that it would look anything   like America’s vision of an increasingly freer and more open international system,   where catastrophic conflicts between great powers were avoided, democracy and   free market capitalism flourished, where prosperity spread wider and wider and   billions of people emerged from poverty? Would it have occurred if, after the   war, we had minded our own business, and left the world to sort out its affairs   without our leadership?”

Rubio is young: he doesn’t remember the cold war except through the lens of   some neocon revisionist historian. Without American “leadership,”   we wouldn’t have spent ourselves into bankruptcy fighting an international “threat”   that withered away all   on its own, and would have with or without the existence of NATO, the Berlin   airlift, or such bloody exercises in criminal futility as the Vietnam war. As   the libertarian economist Ludwig von Mises proved, in theory, in 1920,   communism was doomed to fail on account of its own internal contradictions.   In practice, it took so long for the monster to die of its deformities due mostly   to Western support,   including vital   lend-lease aid during World War II. Having been handed the eastern half   of Europe, the Soviet empire was having enough trouble digesting that enormous   meal – and eventually choked to death on it. The Communist anaconda could hardly   assimilate what had already been fed to it by FDR at Yalta,   and was uninterested in making a serious attempt to absorb the western half.

Unlike the Trotskyists,   who insisted on the hopped-up immediate goal of “world revolution,”   Stalin repudiated the orthodox Leninist “internationalist” doctrine   in favor of building “socialism   in one country.” This, and not world conquest, was the avowed goal   of the Soviet regime.

For a time, the Communists gained traction in the Third World, as we used   to call it then, due to America’s   insistence on allying with “anti-Communist” tyrants, notably in   South and Central America – a textbook   case being Cuba, where US support for the corrupt thug Fulgencio   Batista provoked a nationalist backlash that catapulted Fidel Castro into   power. We repeated our mistake in Vietnam, at the insistence of Scoop Jackson,   apparently Rubio’s role model.

Yet for all the billions spent on the military, the huge apparatus of the national   security state and the machinations of the CIA worldwide, in the end it was   the impossibility of economic   calculation under socialism, and not US government action, that brought   down the hollowed-out Soviet colossus.

What if we had stayed home and minded out own business at the end of World   War II – having saved the world from the Axis, and – one would think – earned   the right to take a break from the job as world policeman?

While the construction of alternate histories is an inexact science, let’s   just take the numbers – the billions in value that were sunk into “defending”   the “free world” against a threat that never existed. The arsenals   bristling with weapons, the armies ranged around the world, the international   network of bases and airfields, the covert operations that spread their tentacles   to every corner of the globe – the costs are so enormous as to be incalculable.

Now let us imagine an alternative timeline in which fear of a worldwide   psychopathogical cult never attained much influence, and instead of pouring   a huge proportion of our wealth into “fighting communism” we had instead   diverted it to more productive uses – say, finding alternatives to fossil fuels,   or a cure for cancer. Imagine all that capital injected into the private economy,   instead of the centrally-planned semi-socialist economy of the military-industrial   complex. I wonder if, in that happy world, Florida would be known as the foreclosure   capital of the country.

Rubio hails the “world order” as maintained by the US because it   supposedly reflects our values as a nation: yet key components of that order,   such as protecting and advancing the interests of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia,   and the emirates of the Persian Gulf, are not exactly bastions of liberal democracy.   According to the Senator, our mission in defense of this American-enforced “world   order” is to

“Face down its challengers, assist other peoples in attaining their   liberty, keep its trade routes open, and support the expansion of free market   capitalism that accelerated the growth of the global economy.”

Aside from the irony of hearing about “keeping trade routes open”   from the same people who want to impose draconian trade sanctions on Iran, someone   ought to tell the Senator that what is expanding isn’t “free market capitalism”   but crony capitalism, i.e. mercantilism, not only internationally but also in   these United States. From Washington to   China it’s all   the rage. There never was any such thing as “free market capitalism”   except as a theory: perhaps one day it will actually be tried, but until that   day comes it’s clear Rubio is just saying things off the top of his head.

What I find very odd is that Rubio spends endless Reaganesque paragraphs hailing   the unprecedented wealth and productive energy of the markets – at a time when   the world is teetering on the edge of economic implosion, and markets are living   in constant fear that the Big One is about to go off. Yet ideology   always trumps reality for the neocons, and in this Rubio is certainly playing   his role as their unofficial Senate spokesman to the hilt.

America made the world: that is the premise of these hubris-stricken ideologues.   Has there ever been a conceit more overblown, more self-regarding, than this   one? Such pretension invites ridicule, but the implications ought to frighten   us, because if we made it – even if we really didn’t — then that means we’re   going to fight to keep it. Rubio and the rising generation of neocons look forward   to leading that fight.

Rubio neatly sums up the essence of the neocon creed in a single paragraph:

“What happens all over the world is our business. Every aspect of lives   is directly impacted by global events. The security of our cities is connected   to the security of small hamlets in Afghanistan, Pakistan, Yemen and Somalia.   Our cost of living, the safety of our food , and the value of the things we   invent, make and sell are just a few examples of everyday aspects of our lives   that are directly related to events abroad and make it impossible for us to   focus only on our issues here are home.”

If we don’t maintain a global empire, we’ll have unsafe food and there will   be no value to the things we invent, make or sell. This statement is entirely   nonsensical, and since Rubio makes no attempt to justify it we can pass it by   as we would ignore a burp or a bout of stuttering. He goes on to inform us that   if we don’t stick our noses into every single small hamlet in the Middle East   – well, then what? I can think of more   than a few Afghan children who might still be alive today. Aside from that,   however, how credible is this “it takes a village” “we are all   One” nonsense coming out of the mouth of a supposedly hardnosed conservative   Republican?

If the security of our cities is entirely dependent on how well we patrol the   hamlets and caves of Pakistan, Yemen, and Afghanistan, then we might as well   give up living in cities and revert back to the caves ourselves, because in   that case we are doomed. The 9/11 hijackers, I would remind you, operated within   our borders for years undetected: if we couldn’t ferret them out here, what   makes anyone think we can achieve that goal in the mountains of Pakistan’s tribal   territories?

The rest of Rubio’s peroration is focused on compiling a new and much longer   enemies list, including not only the usual suspects like Iran, Syria, North   Korea, and China, but also Nicaragua (you saw that coming), Venezuela (no surprise   there), and two new additions, Bolivia, and Ecuador, who are accused of vague   crimes.

Rubio never did get around to criticizing Obama’s foreign policy in his speech,   at least explicitly: he was too busy attacking critics of interventionism in   his own party, who went unnamed – but I’ll bet at least two of them have the   last name of Paul.

Many have noted   the lack of the word “Iraq” in Rubio’s speech: there isn’t a single   reference to that signature neoconservative project. No need to wonder why.   Iraq, in its many dimensions of utter failure, shows us virtually all the ways   in which an interventionist foreign policy is bad for us and bad for those we   presume to “liberate.” The neocons don’t want to remember it, or even   mention it: but the American people haven’t forgotten.

Rubio is a politician, and he will have to adapt himself to the war weariness   – really, the imperialism-weariness– of the American people at this juncture in their history. Either that, or   else he and his fellow Bushian Republicans are doomed to political irrelevance   – and they’ll drag the rest of the GOP down to defeat with them.

Their unapologetic arrogance is epitomized by the way Rubio closed his speech,   asking:

“Why does it have to start with us, some say. Why do we have to do   it?
“We find our answer in the words of a non-American. In an address to Congress   in 2003, British Prime Minister Tony Blair said:
“’I know it’s hard on America. And in some small corner of this vast country,   out in Nevada or Idaho or these places I’ve never been to but always wanted   to go – I know out there, there’s a guy getting on with his life, perfectly   happily, minding his own business, saying to you, the political leaders of this   country, ‘Why me, and why us, and why America?’ And the only answer is because   destiny put you in this place in history in this moment in time, and the task   is yours to do.”
  Is that cool Boca Raton condo you bought at the height of the boom being foreclosed   by the bank, and have your food stamps run out again? Has your job gone part-time   and have local tax assessments gone up in response to the lack of federal aid?   Are you wondering where your next meal is coming from? Well, it’s Destiny, my   friend. Destiny put you in this place in history at this moment in time,   and the task is yours to do – without complaining, and without focusing on your   own selfish desires rather than arming the Syrian rebels and saving the world.

It’s your destiny to be a poor schmuck who has to foot the bill in order   to solve the world’s problems when you are overwhelmed on every side by problems   of your own. Which means you have no choice in the matter: so just resign   yourself to your fate and shut the hell up.

Good luck to Rubio in selling that to the voters.

    Tell me, I am asking in kind, how there can be ‘degrees’ of right wingers. It seems to me the degrees are like the freemasons earning their degrees that allow them to evoke more and more madness onto the universe by way of their handlers, which are the NWO orderers, who by now we know them thanks to wellaware1.com When I talk to a republican they are in denial to one degree or another, and usnally covering their own rear; having been an instigator like it or not in this hell hole we are in. I have observed it is their own vanity, their own little egos or their mutilated penises they are seeking to protect thru their denial. It is after all a sign of weakness when you are too big for your britches to admit you are a part of this system that is the killing machine denying the very god given rights of others. Does that make one feel omnipotent? I am not saying the democrats are any better, just different and seem to be more capable of admitting their denials and facing them. Perhaps the difference in republican democrat is how much terror they suffered when they were mutilated at the ripe age of 8 days, and then how that effects their relationships effecting wives and children. A man who willingly ends the cycle of violence of course would be neither a republican nor a democrat but a real man, an independent. But how can there be degrees of right wingers?

  2. #2 by Kerri on April 27, 2012 - 3:30 pm

    This jew was snipped, and got the vip rabbi blow job he now gets down on his knees to idolize and take orders from. He seeks to continue the cycle of violence doesn’t he, it works so well for the talmudics and the neo cons.

  3. #3 by Jamie on April 27, 2012 - 5:49 pm

    How did anyone miss that Rubio was a Neo-Con? It was apparent from the start. That means he is neither a “right winger” or a real conservative. Those terms have been distorted as much as Liberal. Of course is his about as far from a libertarian as one can get. Other than he pretends to be a small government advocate. That always amazes me. How can one be in favor of US empire and be for small government????

    As far as that creep Tony Blair: . “destiny put you in this place in history in this moment in time, and the task is yours to do.” ……. Really Tony? It’s our destiny to overthrow stable secular regimes to be replaced by civil wars, chaos, the deaths of millions, meanwhile orphan hundreds of thousands of children, ruining the lives of more millions of families, exponentially increasing the hatred against the USA and Europe, empower radical Islam: which then trashes women’s rights, subjects other sects of Islam as well as other religions to persecution. And on top of it, empower the Shia in Iraq which are allied with Iran. You know, the Iran you claim (mostly false) that is the latest and greatest enemy of the USA and the West……

    Thanks a lot to Tony and Marco. They are either liars or their heads are so far up their behinds that the world is a dark as their souls. If they have souls, that is. Not for me to judge that… And we’re force to pay for this cr^p. By the warmonger in BOTH political party’s.

    WTF is wrong with Americans that keep going along with this? They are so conditioned to believe the media and accept authority.

  4. #4 by Kerri on April 27, 2012 - 6:39 pm

    You are waking up but still slumbering Jamie. “which then trashes womens rights”. The trashers of our rights are the people that are still throwing sleep dust in your eyes ”
    Romilda Aparecida Ferreira says she was run over on December 29, 2011 by an American embassy driver, who was dispatched to the club to pick up three US marines and one civilian staffer.” My rights as a woman to raise a child and nurture a husband and dress conservatively and get around conservatively have all been trampled on. Even wearing an apron is seen as sexist and invites pornography instead of simply an apron preventing my clothes from being stained. Wearing boots means subjecting to sexist remarks, so does a short skirt. When you think about what the Americans are deploying, nasty chemicals in the air and weapons that release chemicals like the depleted uranium, the Israeli explosion set up in Fukishima, twin towers releasing toxins, the smart and wise are the ones that wear the Hijab; they have a tradition you call ‘trashing’ that will save them while the rest of us breathe in the chem trails, and yes, the sleep dust they throw at you. If you wore a scarf you could cover your head and keep the sleep chemicals out. Now what we need is armor to protect our genitals from parents that seek to continue the cycle of violence in a stupor of narcissisim.

    I believe the genuine, patriotic military in America will short circuit any phony elections anyway

  7. #7 by Kerri on April 27, 2012 - 11:00 pm

    A big promblem that has to be overcome orma, is that the voting has become a privatized business. As it is now votes are going to be counted in ..Spain. It was not enough fo the private voting companies to take the ballots to the state next door, no, that still did not meet the desired results. Remember the voter volunteer that was caught with several voting machines in his trunk? Not funny. Well that was when Clinton got elected by way of the trunks. The problem orma is that the ‘patriotic military’ you speak of is last time I looked, the right wingers that are kin to the private business owners, you know they are of the same mold. They may not drink tea but they drink out of the same mug. How do you combat that?

  8. #8 by SazzyLilSmartAzz on April 27, 2012 - 11:09 pm

    Well, another supporter for war in Iran. Did I fail to mention that Muslims didn’t do 911? Israel did 911 and yet Americans are still watching CNN and Fox news falling for the Zionist propaganda of fear?

    I’m a female and I would much rather associate with God fearing Muslims than the Judaic Marxists who heralded in the Feminist Movement to break up the home and family.

    Terrorists here! Terrorists there! Terrorists, terrorists everywhere! I’m more afraid of the water I drink than Islamic terrorists because they’re not the ones who wrote the Talmud.

    If Rubio has his way, there will be another Iraq. Young Americans will be sent out to die for Israel.

    Americans need to wake up – and fast!

    “but why comment on a subject about which one knows nothing, especially in front of an auditorium full of policy wonks?” :
    probably because these braindead morons don`t have to think, they just have to be capable of learning the script, and repeating it..

    “Third World, as we used to call it then”
    and
    “the costs are so enormous as to be incalculable.” :

    most of the “free world” is “third world”..

    Rubio.. not so long ago, someone with a name like that, would have been running round with a weapon in a violin case, I suppose that what he is doing now, is the modern equivalent..

    ” The 9/11 hijackers, I would remind you, operated within our borders for years undetected” :
    Here we go, still pushing the cave-dwelling, box-cutter wielding, 9/11 “terrorists”..

    “Many have noted the lack of the word “Iraq” in Rubio’s speech” : probably because Iraq is “in the box, secure”..

    Ah yes, Blair, the slick, smooth talking, mass murderer and con man..

    Speculating on what the world would look like with out the U.S.er empire is tempting. For instance, Oklahoma would be a musical and Burma an aftershave. Two generations of Germans would have lived along untold millions of Russians. Detroit and Cleveland would still be industrial powerhouses to name a few. Its ludicrous arrogance to take credit where none is due. But what can you expect from self indulgent shitheads like the U.S. misleadership?

  11. #11 by ormg on April 28, 2012 - 8:23 am

    Well mate, if there are no real patriots left and, joe six pack is too gutless to shoot then, I guess that is the end of America; merely another colony of Britain, under Kazar rule.

  12. #12 by Kerri on April 28, 2012 - 12:31 pm

    Well said Sazzy. I think what we need to do is to stand guard beside in front of and behind every Muslim and their property. Guard them as the precious protectors of family, liberty and democracy. Our mission like the Muslims is not destruction, but it IS TO GUARD THOSE THAT SEEK JUSTICE. We are all body guards for justice, for Palestinians, for the oppressed. When they start shooting the body guards standing guarding justice is the time to begin the revolution that hits them below the belt.

  13. #13 by Kerri on April 28, 2012 - 12:33 pm

    Imagine that, a gentile guarding every muslim entrance.

  14. #14 by Kerri on April 28, 2012 - 12:37 pm

    The police won’t do that, they guard the jews and neo cons, with special consideration to synagogues and jewish banks, bankers, drug companies(drug lords) and politicians. Never a bank robber can escape. Never. But the real crooks are free.

  15. #15 by Kerri on April 28, 2012 - 2:05 pm

    ” if there are no real patriots left and, joe six pack is too gutless to shoot then, I guess that is the end of America; merely another colony of Britain, under Kazar rule.”
    signed sealed and delivered. An observation about jews when attacking thru lawsuits, they ask for the moon and when they get the stars they still are not satisfied but take it nevertheless. Yeah, they continue to persist for the moon though. The middle east will shut them down for good and insure they don’t get the moon and the jews will grumble for a thousand years before they again take up their talmudic ways and means. Meanwhile the stars which are USA Canada Mexico and Britain will become their prized possessions and will rule over them by electrocution. In the end you get what you deserve, the Middle East deserves to be rid of them having shed living blood and blood of the unborn; their population will be reduced the 70% as the rockefeller plan due to the talmudic instructions of burning which result in such deformity of the children that adults can no longer stomach having children. The population of the inbreeds, the racist jews will grow and in that thousand years will seek to possess every planet, the stars were not enough of course. That void, that empty vat the jews subconsciously let take hold the vapid stories of the holocaust they are even more possessed with than the gentile zombie is has so rotted their brains that they need a seperate planet for every family, or strike with their age old vengence. Yeah, there is a cure for them, it is called multi culturism but they reject it like the plague. Joe six pack about this time is no longer addicted, beer is no longer needed to pacify him. Beer is a luxury to the joe’s the way electricity is to the Palestinians. Yeah, what a future. But don’t try to escape to the Middle East your tracking implant makes that impossible. The only thing there is plenty of is a high bred of ecstasy that shortens your life and provides entertainment for the elites as they watch the masses fornicate. But there is no fruitition, gentiles are not allowed to reproduce.

    @ Jamie

    “And on top of it, empower the Shia in Iraq which are allied with Iran.”

    I noticed you are trying to promote sectarianism as well. Let me tell you a little secret. The Sunni and Shia are united as one and they see themselves as Muslims and nothing else and those who promote sectarianism in Islam are either westerners themselves,Muslims working for western countries/IsraHell, Takfiris, or those who can’t see the forest for the trees. Also another thing I would add is this. What the Hell is wrong with Muslims allying themselves with their brothers and sisters in Iran? Considering all the atrocities America has committed non-stop in Iraq since the beginning of the invasion all in the name of “freedom” and “democracy” I’d say the people of Iraq have every right to cut relations off with the United States and deny her the oil they keep robbing from them.Or are they supposed to feel grateful to Americans for torturing,raping,murdering them, and dumping depleted uranium on their land which has a half life of 4.5 billion years? The arrogance of your statement disgust me. Unfortunately Iraq is still a puppet state with a giant CIA rats nest the size of Vatican City in the capitol of Baghdad along with American bases still located in the country. American troops and IsraHelli Mossad agents are still running around terrorizing the population so don’t be fooled by the JMSM. There was no troop pull out!

    You also need to know that Islam has lived with their Christian brothers and sisters in peace for 1400 years in the Middle East. This infighting didn’t start until the western countries, along with the jews, started to interfere in the affairs of the peoples living in the region and it’s only gotten worse with the creation of that God Damned demonic entity called IsraHell. Just to let you know, the prophet Muhammad’s first wife, Khadija, was a business owner and he worked for her. Yeah that’s right! A Muslim woman was a business owner and she was the boss over a man.

    Here’s another secret you probably didn’t even know about that the JMSM likes to hide. During the Iran-Iraq War(1980-88) which was instigated by the United States and IsraHell, everyone in Iran rushed to defend the Islamic Republic. It didn’t matter if you were a Kurd, Azeri, Arab, Lor, Turk, Fars, or Balochi. It didn’t matter if you were Sunni or Shia. Everybody fought and sacrificed their lives to defend the Islamic Republic of Iran because the whole world was against it. Iran did what no other country in the world could do and that was to wage a successful revolution and become independent by being a master of her own destiny. Now you are wondering why the hell I am telling you this. Don’t worry because I am going to get to the real good part very soon.You want to know who else also fought for the Islamic Republic of Iran? Christians! Yeah that’s right! You heard me! CHRISTIANS! Specifically Armenian Christians who fought and died alongside their Muslim brothers and sisters on the front lines defending the Islamic Republic Iran in order to keep her free. I bet that’s something you didn’t even know!

    She is called the Islamic Republic of Iran for a reason. Under Islam everyone is equal. No black is superior over any white and no white is superior over any black. No Arab is superior over any non-Arab and no non-Arab is superior over any Arab. Not only that but Islam protects her minorities. Christians are allowed to practice their faith and culture without interference. The same goes with all other ethnic and sectarian groups as well.

    Not the Shia Republic of Iran, Not the Peoples Democratic Republic of Iran, Not the Kingdom of Iran, Not the Republic of Iran, or any other title.

    She’s called The Islamic Republic of Iran. The people are united as one strong family.
    You remember that!
