Interesting quote from this short article.
"Who will convince the citizen in Kansas that the U.S. needs to get mixed up in a nuclear war because Haifa was bombed? And what is the point of an American response, after Israel's cities are destroyed in an Iranian nuclear strike?," he said.
I used to live in Kansas so I guess he's asking me. Well, my first thought was, if Haifa is bombed and Israel somehow destroyed in a nuclear assault, it would give us a pretty good excuse to turn that whole dreadful place into a sheet of glass. A very oily sheet of glass.
But the girl from Kansas forgot that she is also a child of God. That "whole dreadful place" is where God planted all of his most precious seeds. I theorize that the devil has a good deal to gain by bubbling up through the sand in the middle east. Spreading lies through false religions and convincing humanity to destroy itself. He takes what we love, the sacred places where Christ walked, and poisons them with religions and governments who thrive and are spread by bloodshed and oppression, and in our desire to stop the insanity we end up strapping a bomb to the chest of our history and destroying the birthplace of our spirits.
Imagine making a pilgrimage to a giant oily sheet of glass, where the brutal unforgiving sun reflects off of the old foundations where the all of the most sacred temples once stood. Where only the roaches are left to worship?
I guess that's why this girl from Kansas cares about Haifa. But I do understand what he's saying. What's the point of an American response after Israel's cities are destroyed in an Iranian nuclear attack? What's the point of anything after that? It would just be suicidal vengeance.
Nigel: OK Mr. (or Ms.) Anonymous commenter. I fixed the spelling errors. Don't be such a dick about it next time.
