Paris Was Attacked, Again!

Written by

Once again, Paris was attacked, the second time this year. Once again, I must write about it as before ("I'm Charlie" and 9/11), but with an even stronger response: it hit me personally this time, as my younger son now works in Paris and lives only a few blocks from the Eiffel Tower (He is Okay)!

1. Introduction

I unequivocally condemn the attack and feel sorrow for the victims and their families.

Unfortunately for the world, the mainstream media and politicians reacted to the attack incorrectly: rather than trying to fix the problem by having an accurate diagnosis first, they have simply lumped it as yet another terrorist attack, and are now even talking about invoking a NATO clause: "an attack against one Ally is considered as an attack against all Allies" (NATO - Collective Defense).

A token declaration of war on ISIS is easy, but destroying such an insidious foe is much harder, requiring an accurate diagnosis to even start ...

2. What is ISIS?

Here is an excerpt from Wikipedia - ISIS:

ISIS is led by and mainly composed of Sunni Arabs from Iraq and Syria.

3. Seeking the ultimate truth: who created ISIS in the first place?

Presidents George W. Bush and Obama - the ultimate truth! Specifically,

  1. President Bush "broke the jar" by launching the Iraq War on March 20, 2003!
  2. President Obama dropped the "broken jar" by withdrawing all American troops from Iraq by December 2011, thereby destroying any chance of lasting success! Additionally, President Obama continued the Bush doctrine of spreading democracy in the Middle East, including subverting the Assad government in Syria.

4. Does the world recognize the ultimate truth?

Perhaps! Two examples:

  1. Tony Blair's acceptance that Iraq war facilitated rise of ISIS is a first step to acknowledging the conflict was a disaster.
  2. Watch this video and read the associated comments.

5. Do Americans recognize the ultimate truth?

Some obviously do! Here is one example:

6. Do American politicians recognize the ultimate truth?

Not many! Why not? Two main reasons:

  1. Blind faith in democracy (Democracy in America) and American Exceptionalism, thanks to decades of brainwashing (Brainwashing in Communism and in Democracy)!
  2. Blame PC (Political Correctness), especially the failure to recognize and accept the fundamental truth that a bad dictator is often better than anarchy or even democracy (i.e. mob rule) in most parts of the world, as in the case of Iraq, Libya, and Syria!

As a result, they are incapable of offering any real solution, but more failures, wasting more American money (Team Obama has spent $500M to train ‘four or five’ Syrian rebels), blood, and life (Syria: Obama authorizes boots on ground to fight ISIS)!

7. What's the solution for the ISIS problem in Syria?

Russia not only has the best, and perhaps the only, solution, but also has started implementing it! Yes, Bashar al-Assad is the only local force capable of defeating ISIS, and Russia is supporting him by destroying all his enemies, including all the rebel groups supported by America! For more, read: Middle East: Past, Present, and Future.

8. What's the solution for the ISIS problem in Iraq?

America must help Iraq develop its own real solution, and it will take years, if not decades! Why should America be held accountable? Read: Colin Powell: "If you break it, you own it"!

9. Discussion

When a terrorist is not afraid of death, or even welcomes it, no one can prevent the havoc he (or she) can wreak!

When there are so many terrorists, imported and home-grown, we must first understand the real reasons, other than "they hate us", and then do our best to address their issues.

Overall, we all must strive for peace and harmony not only internationally, but also at home! Specifically,

  1. America must recognize the ultimate truth before talking about any real solution for the ISIS problem!
  2. The GOP must recognize the ultimate truth before hoping for any real chance in the 2016 Presidential election (The GOP Bible for 2016)!
  3. The world must have a better understanding of democracy before further spreading it blindly. For more, read: Democracy: to be or not to be?

Most importantly, avoid a religious war between Christianity and Islam!

10. Closing

America must recognize and accept the ultimate truth before leading the world with a real solution for the ISIS problem. Until then, the problem will get worse only, very unfortunately ...

Paris, America is with you ...
