There are dozens of websites out there offering absolutely objective oversight given the fact that they apparently hate everyone. Again, you’re going to have to sift through the chaff and the wheat, but at least with these websites, you HAVE chaff through which you can sift, unlike through mudstream media’s usual “slant the hell out of it” news stream.
The White House indicated President Barack Obama may visit Hiroshima during his final visit to Japan next month. His spokesman said “Obama would like to see the world rid of nuclear weapons,” and ” ‘symbolically’ there’s probably ‘no more powerful illustration of that commitment than the city that contained the victims of the first use of that weapon.’ ”
Put simply, Barack Obama wants to apologize to Japan for America’s use of nuclear weapons to end World War II.
The truth is, America should NEVER apologize to Japan. We ended the war in the most humane manner possible, saving SIXTY TIMES the number of Japanese casualties that would have resulted from conventional warfare. Furthermore, casualties of war peaked in World War II. The deterrent value of nuclear weapons is incalculable, but it’s safe to say that during the second half of the 20th century, global wartime casualties would have been between 4 and 10 times greater without nuclear deterrence.
During the summer of 1945, Operation Downfall was the conventional alternative to using nuclear weapons. It involved the direct invasion of Japan, and comprised of two parts, Operations Olympic and Coronet, that would have resulted in Japanese casualties upwards of 20 million, as predicted by the Vice Chief of the Imperial Japanese Navy General Staff, Vice Admiral Takijir? ?nishi. This was based on the fact that there were 2.3 million Japanese Army troops prepared to defend the home islands, backed by a civilian militia of 28 million men and women, and the mindset at the time is that all would have fought to the death for their Emperor.
American predictions were somewhat less, estimating the invading Allies would suffer between 1.7 and 4 million casualties in such a scenario, of whom between 400,000 and 800,000 would be dead, while Japanese fatalities would have been around 5 to 10 million.
Let’s average the American estimate, 7.5 million, with the Japanese estimate, 20 million. Result: 13.75 million Japanese deaths.
Reports of casualties for Nagasaki and Hiroshima vary, but even at the highest ends of the scale, they amount to approximately 160,000 immediate deaths with another 66,000 dying by December, 1945, for a total of about 226,000.
Compare these two figures, and please note that one figure is 61 times greater than the other:
1. Casualties of NOT using nuclear weapons: 13.75 MILLION
2. Casualties of USING nuclear weapons: 226 thousand.
If we had NOT used nuclear weapons, more than SIXTY TIMES as many Japanese people, mostly civilians, would have lost their lives. As it is, both targets were specifically chosen for their military nature in an attempt to minimize civilian casualties.
If the numbers are difficult for you to imagine, consider the following representation:
Casualties as recorded, using nuclear weapons:
Casualties that would have occurred had we not used nuclear weapons:
So, should America “apologize” for using nuclear weapons, thus ending the war FAR sooner and with VASTLY FEWER casualties?
We didn’t start the war, but we certainly ended it, and in the most humane manner possible: “This weapon is to be used against Japan between now and August 10th. I have told the Sec. of War, Mr. Stimson, to use it so that military objectives and soldiers and sailors are the target and not women and children. Even if the Japs are savages, ruthless, merciless and fanatic, we as the leader of the world for the common welfare cannot drop that terrible bomb on the old capital [Kyoto] or the new [Tokyo]. He and I are in accord. The target will be a purely military one.” – Diary of President Harry S. Truman, from various pages on July 17, 18, and 25, 1945.
In the same vein, when you’re faced with the situation depicted by this graphic, we find three different corners of a very similar and similarly dysfunctional triangle, only this time, the dysfunction doesn’t stop at family arguments, but dives all the way down to the deep destruction of society itself.
Regardless of where others want to put you on the triangle — persecutor, victim, or rescuer — the only sane, safe place in the world is OFF the triangle.
In this case, the corner of political correctness represents egalitarianism (the Rescuer), while Islam represents (obviously) the Victim. Both of them paint common-sense Constitutionalism — the glue that’s held our society together for more than two centuries against all odds foreign and domestic — as the “persecutor.”
Yes, folks, the powers assailing our nation right now are painting “that which is good” as evil, and “that which is evil” as good.
Remind you of a Bible verse or three? It certainly does me. Google it. Look it up.
Remember – on the Karpman Drama Triangle, the roles don’t always coincide with what they actually are, but rather, with what they portray themselves to be, as well as what others portray them to be. The persecutor often portrays themselves as the victim, while rescuers often get tired of rescuing, and turning on the “victims” that take advantage of them time and time again, they wind up being the persecutors, even though the only thing they’re trying to do is get off the damned triangle.
Thus, both the politically correct “rescuer” i.e. every liberal bleeding heart FOOL on the planet, as well as the Satanically manipulative Islamic adherent and self-painted “victim,” will always paint honest, God-fearing Americans as their “persecutor” in order to undermine their position and eradicate their idea of an “enemy opposition.”
So, here’s a thought: STOP BUYING IN TO THEIR BULLSHIT.
Islam is NOT the victim – they ARE THE PERSECUTOR.
America is NOT the rescuer – we ARE THE VICTIM.
We the People are NOT the persecutor – WE ARE THE…
Almost caught you, didn’t I?
You see how this goes? The only way off this ridiculously fucked-up merry-go-round is to get OFF the quite literally God-damned merry-go-round and call it like you see it.
Here’s a sample:
1. Islam is an insanely screwed up philosophy, so much so that murders committed under the name of Islam have far, far eclipsed those by any and all other sources combined, including Hitler, Mao, Stalin, and many more. To date, Islam is responsible for more deaths than World Wars I and II combined.
2. Those who side with Islam are rescuers looking for a cause without knowing what the hell they’re getting into.
3. We the People — OF ALL NATIONS — Need to GET OFF THE DAMNED TRIANGLE and stop worrying about who might be offended and instead, start addressing the simple matter of what’s right vs what’s wrong in this world of ours today, the same as every other day.
A. STOP being a “victim:” Get OFF the DDT.
B. STOP being a “rescuer.” Get OFF the DDT.
C. STOP being a “persecutor.” Get OFF the DDT.
Here’s a thought: Start calling what’s wrong, WRONG, and start calling what’s right, RIGHT. There ARE absolute rights and wrongs in this world, and it’s high time We the People pull our heads out of our asses and start ACTING like we have a pair.
Write your Congressman. Stop asking and START DEMANDING. Demand your Congressmen adhere to their oath of office to support and defend the Constitution. If they refuse, demand they be tossed out on the street. Demand our Constitution reign supreme as our Founding Fathers intended and for damned good reason.
Demand our country back. Demand those who would take it away from us be deported, unless they hold government office, at which point you should demand they be held liable and accordingly punished for treason.
Demand your rights as the “Laws of Nature and of Nature’s God entitle” you! (Declaration of Independence)
This is YOUR country, people. PROTECT IT!!!
And may God Bless America!
In case you’ve forgotten, or are one of the pinheaded, brain-dead numbnuts who’ve swallowed Satan’s lie that this is somehow some pathetically ignorant conspiracy theory, I say this: Pull your head out of your ass and get on with reality, real life, and start embracing the truth, for as our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ and our God throughout his Word reminded us, the truth shall set you free.
Here’s my take: “I will, without hesitation, as an honest, law-abiding citizen of the Untied States of American and the State and municipality where I reside, abide by and enforce the laws commensurate to my jurisdiction.”
Before you get the wrong idea, I didn’t support the Communist Takeover of America. I fought against it, first in the trenches of electronic bulletin board systems (eBBSes), then while freezing in the belly of a B-52H on alert with twelve nuclear-armed air-launched cruise missiles strapped under the wings and another eight in the main weapons bay, again while flying C-130s all over the world, supporting our troops who’re fighting for freedom, and yet again, back online, throughout my time in the military, and into retirement, this time on a variety of message forums.
We thought we’d beat the Soviets and their communism when the wall fell and the U.S.S.R. disbanded into its member states.
We were wrong.
Turns out, they never stopped fighting us on the home front, via infiltrators who brainwashed the weak-minded, idealistic, and the ignorant with socialism and communism repackaged under the guises of “progressivism” and “political correctness.” Don’t believe me? Read on, from their own manifesto. Please identify for me which of their goals they’ve failed to accomplish. By the way, none of these had been accomplished in 1950. By 2009, ALL have been accomplished:
THE COMMUNIST GOALS (1963) aka OBAMA’S PLAYBOOK:
1. U.S. acceptance of coexistence as the only alternative to atomic war.
2. U.S. willingness to capitulate in
preference to engaging in atomic war.
3. Develop the illusion that total disarmament [by] the United States would be a demonstration of moral strength.
4. Permit free trade between all nations regardless of Communist affiliation and regardless of whether or not items could be used for war.
5. Extension of long-term loans to Russia and Soviet satellites.
6. Provide American aid to all nations regardless of Communist domination.
7. Grant recognition of Red China. Admission of Red China to the U.N.
8. Set up East and West Germany as separate states in spite of Khrushchev’s promise in 1955 to settle the German question by free elections under supervision of the U.N.
9. Prolong the conferences to ban atomic tests because the United States has agreed to suspend tests as long as negotiations are in progress.
10. Allow all Soviet satellites individual representation in the U.N.
11. Promote the U.N. as the only hope for mankind. If its charter is rewritten, demand that it be set up as a one-world government with its own independent armed forces. (Some Communist leaders believe the world can be taken over as easily by the U.N. as by Moscow. Sometimes these two centers compete with each other as they are now doing in the Congo.)
12. Resist any attempt to outlaw the Communist Party.
13. Do away with all loyalty oaths.
14. Continue giving Russia access to the U.S. Patent Office.
15. Capture one or both of the political parties in the United States.
16. Use technical decisions of the courts to weaken basic American institutions by claiming their activities violate civil rights.
17. Get control of the schools. Use them as transmission belts for socialism and current Communist propaganda. Soften the curriculum. Get control of teachers’ associations. Put the party line in textbooks.
18. Gain control of all student newspapers.
19. Use student riots to foment public protests against programs or organizations which are under Communist attack.
20. Infiltrate the press. Get control of book-review assignments, editorial writing, policymaking positions.
21. Gain control of key positions in radio, TV, and motion pictures.
22. Continue discrediting American culture by degrading all forms of artistic expression. An American Communist cell was told to “eliminate all good sculpture from parks and buildings, substitute shapeless, awkward and meaningless forms.”
23. Control art critics and directors of art museums. “Our plan is to promote ugliness, repulsive, meaningless art.”
24. Eliminate all laws governing obscenity by calling them “censorship” and a violation of free speech and free press.
25. Break down cultural standards of morality by promoting pornography and obscenity in books, magazines, motion pictures, radio, and TV.
26. Present homosexuality, degeneracy and promiscuity as “normal, natural, healthy.”
27. Infiltrate the churches and replace revealed religion with “social” religion. Discredit the Bible and emphasize the need for intellectual maturity which does not need a “religious crutch.”
28. Eliminate prayer or any phase of religious expression in the schools on the ground that it violates the principle of “separation of church and state.”
29. Discredit the American Constitution by calling it inadequate, old-fashioned, out of step with modern needs, a hindrance to cooperation between nations on a worldwide basis.
30. Discredit the American Founding Fathers. Present them as selfish aristocrats who had no concern for the “common man.”
31. Belittle all forms of American culture and discourage the teaching of American history on the ground that it was only a minor part of the “big picture.” Give more emphasis to Russian history since the Communists took over.
32. Support any socialist movement to give centralized control over any part of the culture–education, social agencies, welfare programs, mental health clinics, etc.
33. Eliminate all laws or procedures which interfere with the operation of the Communist apparatus.
34. Eliminate the House Committee on Un-American Activities.
35. Discredit and eventually dismantle the FBI.
36. Infiltrate and gain control of more unions.
37. Infiltrate and gain control of big business.
38. Transfer some of the powers of arrest from the police to social agencies. Treat all behavioral problems as psychiatric disorders which no one but psychiatrists can understand [or treat].
39. Dominate the psychiatric profession and use mental health laws as a means of gaining coercive control over those who oppose Communist goals.
40. Discredit the family as an institution. Encourage promiscuity and easy divorce.
41. Emphasize the need to raise children away from the negative influence of parents. Attribute prejudices, mental blocks and retarding of children to suppressive influence of parents.
42. Create the impression that violence and insurrection are legitimate aspects of the American tradition; that students and special-interest groups should rise up and use “united force” to solve economic, political or social problems.
43. Overthrow all colonial governments before native populations are ready for self-government.
44. Internationalize the Panama Canal.
45. Repeal the Connally reservation so the United States cannot prevent the World Court from seizing jurisdiction [over domestic problems. Give the World Court jurisdiction] over nations and individuals alike.
