Three Decades, Three Years, Three Days...Three Hours?

Israel urges intervention in Syria:
A belief that the uprising may have reached a tipping point and can no longer be rolled back has also given more space to hawks who see in Assad's fall an opportunity to weaken Iran...

America dutifully funds rebels in Syria:
President Barack Obama has signed a covert directive authorizing U.S. support for Syrian rebels battling President Bashar al-Assad's forces, U.S. officials told CNN on Wednesday. The secret order, referred to as an intelligence "finding," allows for clandestine support by the CIA and other agencies.

NYT laments the unforeseeable evils of ISIS:
“I kept telling him it hurts — please stop,” said the girl, whose body is so small an adult could circle her waist with two hands. “He told me that according to Islam he is allowed to rape an unbeliever. He said that by raping me, he is drawing closer to God,” she said in an interview alongside her family in a refugee camp here, to which she escaped after 11 months of captivity.

Remember the good old days, when it took people centuries to forget who paid for and urged on the destabilization of Serbia, and, therefore, to approach the resulting Great War with traces of surprised innocence? And, remember the good old days, when it took people decades to forget who paid for and urged on the national socialist movements of Euro-Christian Aryanism and Semitic-Jewish Zionism, and, therefore, to approach the resulting World War II and partitioning of North Africa and the Middle East with traces of surprised innocence? And, remember the good old days, when it took people years to forget who paid for and urged on the resurgence of jihad, and, therefore, to approach the resulting North-South War with traces of surprised innocence?

How long until it's days...hours...minutes? How long until our disconnect from every time that it is not now right now is so great that President Chelsea Bush, Jr., will arm and fund the Ainu rebels on Tuesday, nuke them on Wednesday, then win the Nobel Peace Prize on Thursday for bringing an end to the looming Ainu threat? We're at a point right now where it no longer takes ten years between "George H.W. Bush having the CIA and the Mossad arm anti-Soviet rebels in Afghanistan" and "people get surprised and outraged by Al Qaeda." No, now it takes less than three years between "Mossad/CIA creating ISIS" and "people get surprised and outraged by ISIS." Seriously, how long until it's three months? Three days?

  1. I think this is temporary, plus only 15%of the population or so reads this shit (the obedient bourgeois). Everybody else never fell for this shit, and I think they know who is to blame, but what to do, what to do...

  2. Not only that, but whatever shit the bourgeois are passionate about, they are passionate for only as long as it is on the first page. If not - meh... Some folks I know were oh so devoted to the problems in ukraine (one of them is actual ukrainian). Now, as if it never happened.

  3. There's just enough memory there that, if "Ukraine" suddenly becomes an "issue" in a few years, everyone will remember, "Oh, it was always an issue, because 2015."

    If things don't go that way, though, and Ukraine doesn't again become an issue, people will forget there ever was even a suggestion of it being an issue. What finesse.
