If we are to judge humanity by the quality and intelligence of her political leaders, who have just strutted their stuff at the UN for our collective horror, the verdict will have to be harsh. Yet, they are these people that we need to make see the obvious: that thugs cannot be stopped by empty threats, nor can they be allowed to rule countries and determine the fate of entire nations.
Iran’s President, Ahmadinejad says he loves both parties, well our party does indeed feel his love all the way to our bone marrow, sliding along the edge of a dull blade.
Egypt’s president, Morsi, says he opposes foreign intervention in Syria, but of course. Islamists like him feel the coming of their moment in the region, a long bloody conflict in Syria, a country historically known for its more pragmatic culture, will facilitate the rise of Islamists there and will add another Islamist piece to the puzzle of the new caliphate to which all aspire. Assad is willing to sacrifice so many Syrians for the sake of retaining some power, and the Islamists willing to sacrifice more for the sake of gaining and expanding their power, no matter how tenuous their foothold happens to be at this stage.
There is simply too much unjustified hubris and lust in the air. But no one will have his way, but this realization will not dawn upon us until we spent few years cannibalizing each other. We are the colonialists in our own land. So long as we keep looking at what we have through the filter of totalitarian ideologies we will never be worthy of it, and we will never be able to really own it, or develop it.
