Ten Years

It has now been 10 years since I wrote message 666, reproduced (roughly) here:

I am AGAINST racism.
I am AGAINST sexism.
I am AGAINST religious discrimination.
I am AGAINST dogma.
I am AGAINST subjugation.
I RESPECT INDIVIDUALS who VOLUNTARILY donate to COMPLETE STRANGERS (ie different race, different sex, different religion, different nationality) using their OWN HARD-EARNED MONEY.
I will FIGHT using my BRAIN subjugation of ANY HUMAN.

I am AGAINST nationalism.
I am AGAINST non-humanist behavior.


At the time I wrote this, I believed we now had the solution to world freedom and subsequently world peace, and it was all rapidly about to fall into place. I was also very pleased that an Australian atheist had derived the Holy Grail, instead of an American Christian.

However, it failed to go according to plan. I believe this is due to people being zombies, not real people. I have analyzed the zombies as best I can, and the result of that is my enlightenment document. In the last 10 years I have only had 1 or 2 people convert from anti-war to pro-war as a result of my debating them. A dismal failure on my part, but I don't know where I went wrong.

I must say that the 10 years has been fun-packed though, and hopefully I'll have a similarly enjoyable, albeit somewhat frustrating, for the next 10 years.

Rat Race

When Argentina invaded the Falklands, I was surprised that the UK didn't nuke Argentina off the map. I considered the Argentinians to be a rat race, that would spread their dictatorship to part of the UK. And I thought that the whole point of nuclear weapons was to ensure that your territory didn't get invaded. The bluff had been called, and the UK needed to pay the piper.

However, I have the same opinion of Australia. After 9/11 I found that the light-hearted anti-Americanism (and anti-UK for that matter) that Australians (including me) engaged in, was in fact real. This unjustified negativity is completely unacceptable to me, and if America chooses to wipe Australia off the map, as part of its self-defence, I completely understand and do not mind if I am an inadvertant casualty in such an attack. All good Australians should accept such friendly fire, and I couldn't give a shit about how many bad Australians die.

Greater Kurdistan

Iraqi Kurds did the exact right thing by avoiding proclaiming an independent state (and running the risk of Turkish invasion). The ISIS group has provided a great opportunity to the Kurds. The Kurds can now fight ISIS at will and lay claim to any territory they conquer. Note that the borders of Kurdistan are disputed. If the US provides arms and air support to the Kurds we will have an absolutely fantastic result.

John Kerry was a Soviet Agent

For whatever reason, these articles got through to one Democrat voter, who was disgusted by it. The person in question still voted Democrat in 2004, but at least they briefly paused for thought. So here I present the two articles that caused a Democrat to think, which is a rare event that should be celebrated. The articles relate to Kerry's lies in the US Senate.

Atheism

It is deeply disturbing to me that atheists face religious discrimination in USA. Australia is much better than that. Our 3rd longest serving Prime Minister was an atheist/agnostic and no-one in Australia gave a rat's arse about that. I consider atheism to be a step along the path to enlightenment. I went from indoctrinated Christian to atheist (for decades) to the strategic Mu'tazilite (about a decade now).

Gaza

Gaza is an interesting territory. It is effectively an independent state already. It could apply to join the UN, but for whatever reason it doesn't.

The end goal we have for the Gaza territory is that it be a secular capitalist liberal democracy, no different from Denmark.

Unfortunately Gaza is a long way off being like Denmark. The people of Gaza choose between two terrorist organizations instead of left/right economic splits. To move Gaza towards Denmark we need to get the people to support a new order. Unfortunately the people of Gaza are Nazified. So we need a de-nazification program. If we just set up two parties (left and right), there is a good chance that the current Nazified population will refuse to participate in the political process. We were very very lucky that this rejection did not happen in Iraq. But now that we have the Iraq example, there can be some confidence that the Gazans can get a similar government. I don't know how this can be set up though. Could the Israelis set it up, or would it require a US invasion, or would it happen naturally if the Israelis just killed Hamas and PLO personnel such that there is only non-terrorist organizations to choose from.

Impregnable Iraq

The biggest danger democratic Iraq ever faced was a military coup. Now that the Americans are back in Iraq - even in very small numbers - that threat should have abated. I would congratulate the Iraqis on managing to maintain that no-coup situation for more than 2 years. That was an interesting data point.

The small numbers of US forces in Iraq at the moment is similar to the situation that existed in Afghanistan where a small number of US special forces were able to assist the Northern Alliance to a stunning victory.

ISIS seems to have been successful by getting some disgruntled Sunnis to stand up and assist them, and Sunni soldiers being unwilling to fight fellow Sunnis. They aren't going to have the same success in the Shiite areas, especially not with US backing.

Sadr's Mahdi Army was a major concern as well. It is very unusual for a democratic country to have a 100,000-strong militia under independent control. Again it is fortunate that the Americans are back in town to prevent them from staging a coup.

The Iraqi experiment has been a fascinating success story, and I am keen to watch how the rest of the drama plays out.
