At the back of the hill

Warning: If you stay here long enough you will gain weight! Grazing here strongly suggests that you are either omnivorous, or a glutton. And you might like cheese-doodles.
BTW: I'm presently searching for another person who likes cheese-doodles.
Please form a caseophilic line to the right. Thank you.

The current crisis in Iraq is not entirely local. Funding for the takfiris comes from Saudi and Gulf businessmen, organizations, and royals, whereas many of the foreign fighters come from Russia and Europe, where socialist parties and Islamic charities operate as supporters and recruitment centra, with plausible deniability and legal cover provided by European governments, which is a situation dating back to the early years of the Bush-Blair alliance and before.

Many European socialist parties are re-branded Stalinists, Saudi and Gulf Arab potentates have a well-established history of funding and arming terrorists and gangsters to fight proxy wars.
That insidious Arab conspiring, by the way, has been entirely with the connivance of the aforementioned European "socialists", gladly provided because in their eyes anything that is anti-American is good and right. 

Which is why in the seventies those same "socialists" enthusiastically cheered the Khmer Rouge and gave shelter to extremists among their own side, in the eighties they bemoaned the collapse of Stalinism, in the nineties they sent funds to Colombian rebels and African mercenaries, and in the last decade and a half have elected their clean representatives to the Euro parliament and every national government.

Is it not perhaps time to investigate our purported allies?

In addition to freezing assets to make a point?

You might think that this is a somewhat biased point of view, maybe even a typical paranoid over-reaction by another damned Yank. But European hatred of America has been boldly displayed on the internet since the very beginning, and not a single news source in Dutch, German, French, or Danish (*) has not evinced a profound and sneering superiorism. Literacy in other languages is illuminating.
European journalists and politicians are rather like Yasser Arafat; what they say in English to us is not what they say to their public in their own languages, as both sanctioned policy and political ideology.
Their hinterland, sheep-like, bleats similar ideas.
Because Europeans are always right.

(*) Maybe the Spaniards, Italians, and Slavs are better, but I doubt it, even though I do not read those languages.
Pigris balantibus aegror.


The Arab world largely entertains itself by blaming everything that goes wrong on the Americans, one does not have to read their language or listen to their politicians to discover that. And the Europeans have fairly consistently tried to explain to their Arab friends and patrons that they are not Yanks, and entirely different besides.
Which is remarkable.

Please feel free to comment.

By the way, as a completely irrelevant and off-subject afterthought, all of the United States really is like what you've seen in Hollywood movies and American television series. We are all white, ignorant, and quite unable to speak any other language than Americanese. We drive pick-up trucks and shoot guns.
Golly yes, San Francisco and Oakland are EXACTLY like Bay Watch, Dallas, and The Oprah Winfrey show. Many of us, myself included, resemble Larry Hagman and wear ten-gallon hats. In between eating at MacDonalds, I repress Native Americans while playing a banjo.
I just thought you should know that.

    Quite possibly, we (US) continue to throw our weight around, and we've become morally bankrupt. We are not the world's police man, and I think we should remove the beam from our own eye before we try to remove the splinter from everyone else's.

    However, I still believe in American exceptionalism, but the shining city on the hill is growing dim... I think de Tocqueville said America was great because she is good... we can't embrace moral relativism and expect superior results. Jeff Cooper said "this is the age of the common man." We aren't striving to be the best... "if we teach children they descend from animals, and they start behaving that way, why should we be surprised?"

    I like that point. And the moral relativism we've embraced is precisely part of the problem.
