The Day America Becomes A Democracy (Part Two)
Men will be men. Differences will be settled on the field of play. The home won't be another battlefield. Cheating won't be wrong only when it's a woman doing it. Telling dad to stop cheating and abusing mum, and treat her with love and respect she deserves, as an equal partner with similar rights, needs and interests like his, Won't be called anti dad. Whoever does it today, is unfair and undemocratic like America.

In America, big pockets rule. The poor and the honest are left with eyes out of their sockets, staring in disbelief; mouths agape as politicians abuse and rape mother nature with policies that don't stop pollution or curb violence. The earth's in despair, breathless and gasping for air. She's crying out for help like a childless widow. Can our heavenly father send us His best prophets to save her lest our heathen, earthly father's insatiable desire to make more profits than love take mum to her grave?
Can any child by God's grace, be brave enough to stand up to dad, hit him with truth and save the entire human race?
Dad Please, Stop Abusing Mum
Whether out of fear or respect, We'd never take sides except that of justice. Encouraging good and forbiding evil is a duty we owe each other.Does evil become good once it's done by a friend ? Does a good deed cease to be good when it's done by some one you regard as evil? Is dad always right?
Is cheating only wrong when a woman does it? Telling dad to stop cheating and abusing mum is the right thing to do. It shouldn't therefore amount to antidad. Haven't we had enough of that emotional blackmail? If I'm anti dad, what're you; anti mum? Why is it wrong for me but right for you?
If dad's abusing mum, we ought to tell him; if he doesn't stop, he must get prepared and shouldn't complain if she eventually gets fed up and seeks refuge in the arms of another man. Yet to make amends, dad just have to apologize sincerely. Treating mum with love and respect as an equal partner with similar rights, needs and interests, would regain him his credibility.
And when the children fight, mum and dad shouldn't take sides. They'd desist from choosing and backing their favorite child. They'd insist on fairness. Good parents are consistent. They teach their children to distinguish right from wrong. Should need be, only punish the wrong, whoever it is.
Shouldn't America do the same? Should America continue having allies? Can Israel remain infallible? Can America continue to attack those who speak out against its injustice and bias? Or change and be a respected international referee? America knows that it's so wrong. Since it's the head and so strong that nobody can do anything about it, it uses its might to determine what's right and all must abide by its laws without asking any questions. But let's ask one; is that democracy?
In fact, America's aware of the fact that if it became democratic and just; consulted and liaised with the world and handled matters fairly, according to the general consensus, peace would reign. Its malaise would then be cured and Israel isolated. So, it jumps out of bed and flees from the hospital and remains arrogant, deaf and dumb.
America doesn't wanna hear or talk anything about Israel and it's apartheid policies and doesn't buy the notion that Zionism is racism and boycotts forums discussing that. Isn't that the reason why in the UN Assembly, America walks out the moment someone they don't like because he's the interests of the world at heart and speaks against arrogance and imperialism takes to the floor? But isn't democracy all about hearing each other out even if it's dissenting fracas? Should we die because they can't talk to each other?
We all know; everybody's got a certain flaw and might have broken the law once or twice but when Ahmedinadjad starts to flow on democracy, justice, freedom, peace and human dignity; it's a flood that washes away the lies America and its allies tell. He gives warmth to the seemingly cold human blood and fills humanity with hope.
Biggest Threat To Peace
"Americans are like big children. They create a mess and leave others to clean it up for them." (Cartim- Tour of Duty). How true is that?
How does it feel to be a patriotic American and see the flag of your beloved country being burnt by people seeking democracy but your very own government still wants to keep those dictators in power?
How does it feel to be a law abiding citizen only to see your government, a self declared policeman of the world, is but a myopic and squint policeman who only sees things happening on one side? If NATO actions in Libya were all humanitarian, why don't they do the same in Palestine after all these years before talking of Syria?
With no female representation, can Qatar talk of democracy? Look at the streets, can Bahrain talk of democracy? And Saudi Arabia? A brutal occupying force in Bahrain, the very same Saudi Arabia, where people got no rights at all and women can't even drive? Oh, please! Can they talk of arming Syrian oppositions to defend themselves? And Palestinians? They think the world doesn't know whose agenda they're pushing?
A kettle Calling A Pot Black
In any game, foul play gets cautioned by the ref. In the kitchen, what happens when the kettle calls the pot black? The chef cleanses them both! We need Universal laws to root out double standards and purge humanity of this scourge.
A person can't be a player and a referee, or an arsonist and a fireman, or a warlord and peacekeeper at the same. A country can't be democratic and arm dictators to crack down on unarmed, innocent, democratic protesters in one place while arming undemocratic protesters in another. Hey, isn't that what America is doing? If not, why was America furious over Russia and China's veto of a resolution on Syria? How many resolutions on Israel has America vetoed?
Weapons Of Mass Destruction
America got weapons of Mass Destruction. Who gave it that right? Can the world just sit on its ass and do nothing about it? Are those weapons not a threat to the very existence of humanity? Hiroshima, Nagasaki, Vietnam, Iran etc, hasn't humanity suffered enough from wars and use of such weapons? Are those killed and the ones born with deformities not humans?
Can an alcoholic staggering his way home, who can't even control his own tongue, accuse somebody of substance abuse for holding empty bottles while on an environmental clean up campaign? Isn't that what nuclear power drunk America's doing to Iran? Iran's pushing for the scrapping of such weapons but who's refusing and can't even promise the world; won't use them ever again?
If it's for a nuclear free Middle East, between Israel and Iran who'd really be attacked or on sanctions? In Jesus' name, can nuclear armed America, Britain, France and Israel attack Iran for having nuclear? Can humanity just sit and watch in pain when we know more lives will be lost in vain? Is it a racial or religious right for some countries to have nuclear while others not? If nuclear is bad, why can't all be barred from having it?
How did Israel acquire nuclear anyway? If nothing stopped America, Britain and France from passing that technology onto Israel and even gave it to the Shah when he ruled Iran, what should stop North Korea, China or Russia from passing it onto Iran now?
If America's relationship with Israel is too important to be distorted like Obama says, would Russia or China be wrong to say the same about their relationship with Iran?
If Obama says nuclear armed Iran is a threat to America's national interests, isn't nuclear armed America a threat to Iran's national interests? Isn't nuclear armed Israel a threat to Russia's national interests? If America threatens to attack Iran, what'd America say if Russia or China threatened to attack Israel, targeting nuclear sites like Dimona? Or does America still believe; that kind of stupidity and madness is its queer characteristic alone and expects China and Russia to act wisely as usual and keep their sanity?
I guess only democratic America will know that arming, defending and protecting its friends even when they're wrong, will only prompt others to also arm, defend and protect their friends even when they're wrong. But haven't we suffered long enough from this? Don't they say when two elephants fight, it's the grass that suffers? And when a hare hides under a shrub, it's the shrub that feels the wrath of the hunter's club? Either way, it's a human life that's lost!
Settling The Score
America might think it doesn't owe the world a thing but let's not deny it; the world can no longer rely on the wisdom and Justice of America and it's allies anymore when even the International Court of Justice only catches African and minor European fishes leaving the real sharks like Bush and Blair out wild and free.
So, before this war rhetoric escalates and human blood flows again, we request Obama, Cameron, Sarkozy and Netanyahu on one side, with Ahmedinadjad, Chavez, George Galloway and Mandela on the other, facing off in a worldwide televised debate on democracy, sovereignty, war and world peace?
Can you hear that voice? Jesus' voice is getting fainter and fainter even those Christians who say were saved by his blood can't hear him say; Let he without nuclear sin throw the first bomb on Iran.
"What has Iran done that Israel hasn't to deserve all this?" If Jesus asked Obama, what'd he say? Can we say America's destruction's done to please Jesus? Sheila Touchton has an answer; "Jesus said that the Devil is a liar, thief, and murderer who only comes to kill, steal, and destroy." Isn't oil the truth for attacking Iraq, Libya and now they wanna attack Iran?
Let us pray; "Just as we have been approved with gospel, so we speak, not as pleasing men, but God who examines our hearts. 1 Thessalonian: 2:4"
"Oh God, give us the faith to believe that everything happens and everyone dies according to Your plan. Those who believe in You got no need or fear of nuclear. If it's not their day and You want to protect them, Your angels, hurricanes, tornadoes, volcanoes and tsunamis can render nuclear useless, settling the score once and for all. God, make us see the signs of your power and change. Open our hearts and let Your love in so may all live in peace with each other. Let men be men and rise above their egos and settle differences on the field of play instead of the battle field because no matter how long we may fight, we'll never defeat your plan and we'll be the sole losers when your kingdom comes. God unite humanity in a new world order where truth and justice is the benchmark of peace. In Your name, nothing is impossible. Grant us our prayer. Make the world a better a place. Unite humanity as one happy family and let us see the day America becomes a democracy. Amen."
