​It came way sooner than I thought.

https://hslu.wordpress.com/2017/01/28/what-if/

Which country after Iran will be the next to stand up against Trump’s traveling ban? Iraq or Libya? Take your pick. 

It was Iraq.

What about the Iran nuclear deal signed by Obama? Is the nuclear deal on the chopping block too? What comes next with Trump on Iran:return of the economic sanction, freeze of Iranian funds in the U.S. or both?

For every action, there is a reaction. Trump doesn’t seem to understand that. 

Some reactions fly by everyone’s face without causing a ripple. Others have a way of spiraling out of control when no one is watching. Trump’s traveling ban of visitors from seven muslim countries has become a torrential rain storm which might teach him a lesson. 

Trump the mouthy candidate got away with saying things which were inflammatory and irresponsible. Since his election victory, Trump has been acting like a spoiled brat picking fights with everyone who dislike him. 

Democrats don’t like him. The media doesn’t like him. Some moderate Republicans don’t like him. Half of the American people in the middle of the political spectrum don’t like him. Most muslims in the world don’t like him. People in many countries which trade with the U.S. don’t like him. 

 Trump the president will find out the hard way that he doesn’t always get what he wants because he isn’t the boss anymore. Congress tells him what he can and can’t buy. American people will show him their displeasure by demonstrating in front of the WH. Media will criticize his policy and his every move day in and day out. Trump’s tweets will be attacked and Trump’s words will be denounced on the web, on the radio and on TV programs. Foreign countries will balk at Trump’s unreasonable demands and unfair trade policies. Worse, America’s enemies will be emboldened to harm Americans and America’s interests in the U.S. and in foreign countries.

Well, Trump manages to make many enemies within the first week of his presidency and many will fight him tooth and nail to the end. 

Will Trump back down from his ridiculous positions? Will he stop listening to his radical political appointees? Will he chage his radical approach and think through the reactions before acting out like a spoiled child?

I am afraid that Trump will likely stick to his unpopular positions and drag America through the mud in a bottomless pit. He’ll make very few good deals but he’ll ruin the lives of many American people and put America in a dark corner with few friends and no future. 

NATO, US, Russia and China September 2, 2014

The US is pulling strings to dictate what NATO needs to do in order to restrict Russia’s aggression against Ukraine.

Source: WSJ.

NATO is essentially the US because US accounts for the majority of the funding, provides the bulk of the military assets and is a puppy of the Pentagon. It pretty much does what US tells it to do. Germany, U.K. and France are what we call ‘昨日黃花’ because they don’t have money or the will to fight a war they deem not essential for their national interests. They have no desire to lead a fight against Putin’s Russia because it was not their fight. All other NATO members are what we call ‘跑龍套的’ because all they can do is act like cheerleaders on the sideline because they don’t have anything to offer. That leaves US with ‘The US.’

NATO is a case of ‘一個願打 一個願挨’ 兩邊 ‘一拍即合’ 是也。

America started the Cold War against Russia and America ended the Cold War which was a great achievement. The US enjoyed peace dividend and for a while didn’t know what to do with all the extra money that came with the defeat of the Soviet Union.

Over the next 10 some years, America forgot about Russia because Berlin Wall came down, Soviet Union was torn apart, Russia entered into bankruptcy, America reached to the pinacle of the world and the new world order was functioning just like what American strategists have envisioned. Russia was like a sick tiger with no influence what so ever in the world.

The American empire was finally in place and by this time the United States dominated almost every corner of the world. America created many colonies and it did it with American dollar along with the most powerful military in the world.

Then came 9/11. With that, what took America half a century to put together came down like a house of cards.

America became a hostage of Bin Laden. America then spent trillions to beef up its security by fighting two wars and monitoring almost everything  within its borders. Thetremendous costs acted like a national tax on itself. The Fed then reduced interest rates which planted the seeds to the financial crisis. It then reallyrr bought America to its knees. Most western nations, many of them NATO members, kowtowed with the US and they helplessly saw their national debts went through the roof.

Oil prices went through the roof which benefited Muslim nations and none other than Russia: the old tiger who were licking its wounds.

Which bought everyone; including NATO, to 2014, Crimea, Donetsk, Luhansk and now Mariupol.

Ukraine war is a sideshow. Putin is fighting a war he will not lose. Eventually he’ll get Donbass and a pathway to Crimea. Then he’ll stop. And what America is doing to counter Putin’s aggression: economic sanctions and travel restrictions. Yeah!  Putin is shivering in Kremlin.

Obama also managed to piss off China by rounding up China’s neighbors in order to put a NATO equvalent around China. He called that ‘pivot to the East’ in the name of protecting America’s national interests.

Over the same time period, America’s war on terror killed thousands of innocent Muslims and reealy amplified the resentment and hatred against the US. As a result, America is fighting a prolonged guerrilla warfare with many muslims groups and whether America  likes it or not, the war in voming to the America.

Obama’s incomptency, his misguided Middle East policy, his animosity against Israel and his deliberated retreated from the world stage completely back fired. Now, America is fighting three wars at the same time. And where was NATO? NATO was still daydreaming; dreamed what Chinese call ‘黃粱一夢,’  and by the time NATO got their act together, Putin already gets what He wants from Ukraine.

America is fighting a Cold war with Russia. It Probably will last another 40 years.

America is fighting a guerrilla warfare with muslim terrorists. This war may last another 100 years.

And what China is doing now? China is building high speed railroads everywhere they need one. China is building Air Craft Carriers until they think they have enough. China is developing fighter jets and commercial airlines to satisfies their own demands and expands into world market. China is making deals on pipelines and terminals with countries rich in natural resources. China is exploring space to advance its technology. China is strengthening its financial system and currency which one day will bring down the US dollars. China is getting rid of corruptions which has reached to the highest level of the local and central government.

And what the American empire is doing? America is making bombs, bullets, missiles and blackhawk helicopters.

Oh, the once mighty America the empire is borrowing money to get by day in and day out. It has been busy piling on debt after debt to as far as eye can see into the future.

Happy time isn’t far away, CNBC keeps telling US, because stocks are at all time high and the sky is the limit. Trust me, Yellen told us that too.

Hmmm…., what was that I heard on the news that another mortgage crisis is coming this winter?

Don’t Look at me! I didn’t say that. Bove did. He said it on CNBC’s today: 09-02-2014.

What does Chinese have to say about this? ‘鷸蚌相爭 漁翁得利也.’

Hmmm.., before I forget, Soro has a billion+ dollar short on the S&P 500. Thought you might want to know.

Hmmm…, how do I get you back to NATO? Last I heard they were debating sanctions against Russia again.

I have a suggestion and it is a grwat one:

Why don’t they get it over with by putting a real tough sanction against Putin himself. He has billions somewhere, doesn’t he? Freeze his assets. Don’t Let him in the US, German, UK and France. Add Italy and Spain while NATO is working so hard now.

That for sure will get Putin’s attention.

When will the suffering of the people on both sides end?

Is it endless because the deaths of the innocents become the seeds of brand new hatreds? They get carried from generation to generation and the trap become so deep that no solution can be found.

Will there ever be ladting peace in the world? I haven’t seen it in human history and I don’t expect the future generations will ever witnesd it either.

Obama’s foreign policy: ceding leadership position to others September 11, 2013

It was very clear to me that from Obama’s Berlin and Cairo speeches that he doesn’t think the United States deserved to be the leader of the world.

His actions since he took office spoke louder than words and Card’s interview with Kudlow confirmed my observation.

http://m.cnbc.com/us_news/101027615/1

He stayed behind NATO on Libya. He did nothing on all the killing in Africa.  He waivered on Syria for 2 years, then stayed in a bunker he dug for himself and handed the hot potato to the Congress in the last minute.

The only thing that I could remember he showed some leadership was on the war in Afghanistan where he ramped up US involvement from around 10,000 soldiers to more than 100,000 for no reason at all.

Even on Obamacare where he did the most damage to the United States, he hid behind Reid and Pelosi.

http://m.cnbc.com/us_news/101027615/1

In short, he doesn’t have any leadership quality at all and his foreign policy, including his distaste to Israel as a gesture to appease to the Muslim countries, has been a total failure to date.

The United States will suffer incalculable damages in years to come.

Put it in another way: America after Obama’s first term will be “一蹶不振” for a long time.

Islam 1: Christianity 0 September 14, 2010

In the first run of the 21st century version of the religious war, Christianity lost to Islam in the battle ground in Florida.

Under the cloak of “protecting the troops,” Obama once again showed his appeasing to Muslims instinct and kowtow to Islam one more time.

One step at the time, the Sharia law is gaining ground on the soil of the United States as American value is pushing aside by Obama.

The president  of the United States threw the US Constitution on the ground and gave in to the threat of Muslims.

Freedom of Speech September 9, 2010

No one gives it a damn  if someone burns an American flag or a bible. That’s freedom of speech, according to the high court.

If someone try to burn a Koran or a bunch of Korans, according to Obama, Hillary, Petraeus and a bunch of others, it becomes a national security issue.

Now Imam Rauf has said that unless the mosque is built at the site in the Lower Manhattan, “The headlines in the Muslim world will be that Islam is under attack.” And, if you read between the lines, American heads here in the US and abroad will roll.

Hmm.., Is that a threat to the American people?

Let’s raise the national security threat level to orange then, Obama.

What does this have to say about the religion of Islam? And more importantly what does this have to say about the mood of American people who have had it up to their eyes with the threats from the so-called religion of the peace.

What I do not understand is:

  • How come the leaders of Arab countries didn’t come out and ask Muslims in the world to tone it down?
  • How come the so-called moderate Imams all over the world  in the world didn’t ask their followers to respect majority of American people’s will?
  • How come the so-called moderate Imams all over the world or Muslim leaders didn’t ask Imam Rauf to move the Cordoba House to a different location?
  • How come Obama didn’t call the leaders of the Muslim countries and tell them that Freedom of Speech is the Law of the land here and is protected by the constitution of the United States?
  • How come Hillary Clinton and Ambassadors to the Muslim countries didn’t call these Muslim nations and educate these Muslim leaders of the American way of life and ask them to come out and ask the radicals, as Imam Rauf has put it, to put their saif, or suicide bombs, down for a change?

Now you see how big a mess Obama did with his”right ot build”  iftar speech in front of many Muslims in the White House. He really kicked it up a notch, didn’t he?

I say Obama is a Muslim in front of other Muslims. At least he acted as a Muslim and seek approval from his fellow Muslim brothers at the White House iftar dinner.
The next day when asked of his comment he tried to have it both ways and said that he didn’t question the “wisdom” of building a mosque so close to ground zero. May I ask you Obama, whose wisdom did you refer to? Surely you didn’t question the wisdom of Muslims, did you?

Are there anyone out there looking for world peace?

Imam Rauf said Cordoba House will proceed September 8, 2010

A modern era version of the full fledged of religion war is developing in the lower Manhattan of the  New York City.

Imam Feisal Abdul Rauf has just came back from our-Tax-Money-funded, State Department-sponsored 2-month trip from Middle East nations during which he has, according to the State Department, fostered “greater understanding” about Islam and Muslim communities in the US. He has stopped by Saudi Arabia, Dubai, Abu Dhabi, Bahrain and Qatar. From Imam Rauf’s Op Ed piece on New York Times, Muslims in the world have come to an agreement that the Cordoba House has to continue because there is no way that Muslims will submit to Christians or Jews.

Imam Rauf said that:

“The wonderful outpouring of support for our right to build this community center from across the social, religious and political spectrum seriously undermines the ability of anti-American radicals to recruit young, impressionable Muslims by falsely claiming that America persecutes Muslims for their faith.”

He continued that:

“These efforts by radicals at distortion endanger our national security and the personal security of Americans worldwide.”

and

“This is why Americans must not back away from completion of this project. If we do, we cede the discourse and, essentially, our future to radicals on both sides.”

In other words, if the Cordoba House is not permitted to continue, American heads will roll.

He also took the opportunity to give Americans a lesson on the word “islam.”

He didn’t address Obama’s comment on the “wisdom of the the ground zero mosque” though.

He did say that he’ll tell everybody where he got his $100 million from.

Hmm, I wonder how much of that $100 million came from our gas money we gladly paid at pumps every time we stop to gas up.

Muslims are America’s New Discrimnation Targets September 8, 2010

After 9-11, an invisible hatred against Muslims has been simmering in the United States. The silence of American Muslims since that tragedy day hasn’t helped to ease the uneasy feeling of Americans towards Islam.

The building of the Cordoba House or the Ground Zero mosque, Obama’s righteous support of Muslim’s right to build it near ground zero at an White House  iftar dinner and his half-hearted retreat from his earlier support the next day have elevated this hatred to the forefront to be seen by every American and the world.

The discrimination of American Muslims has just been kicked up a notch by Obama. Thanks to Obama, the 21th century religious war in the United States has officially begun.

I knew this day will come and it will get even worse once Al Qaeda succeeds of creating havoc in the United States with a suicide bomber or two.

Cordoba House or Park 51? August 25, 2010

Why did Imam Feisal Abdul Rauf changed the name of Ground Zero Mosque from “Cordoba  House” to “Park 51?”

Hmm, I wonder? Was it because it has something to do with the meaning of Cordoba in the minds of billion Muslims in the world?

Yes, it does. It turned out that the city of Cordoba in Southern Spain was captured in 711 by Muslim army and subsequently became the capital of the region under the control of Caliphate al-Andalus. It symbolizes the dominance of Islam over this region for more than 300 years.

And what did Muslim did when they took over the city of Cordoba? They knocked down a church and built a mosque; the so-called “The Great Mosque of Cordoba” over the site of the church.

Do you see the similarity here?

Muslims knocked down the twin towers and build a mosque 2 blocks away?

Who will win on the religious war near the ground zero? August 17, 2010

Who win?

Feisal Abdul Rauf and Muslims win.

If Imam Rauf is not allowed to build the mosque near Ground Zero, the Muslims will say that religious freedom in the United States is not worth the paper it is written on.

If Imam Rauf is allowed to build the Ground Zero Mosque, he wins too.

Who lose?

Americans lose.

World peace, anyone?
