Sometimes, late at night, I turn into a Jehovah’s witness. For those of you that don’t know, JW’s is an apocalyptic cult. They’ve been preaching . . “The end times are a comin’”. . . “Better get right with Jesus!” for over a century. And who doesn’t enjoy it every time one of these cults gets it wrong? Jehovah’s witnesses have been battling a biblical accounting error since 1914. Maybe they just don’t believe enough. Is it me or does praying to Jesus for the Apocalypse turn Christianity into a schadenfreude cult?
It’s not a Cold War
A patchwork of treaties, subsidies, tariff relief, backroom deals and outright bribery has been used like New Orleans style levies to keep these two retarded step-children from killing each other; a policy of appeasement that only adds length to the fuse. For those of you that don’t know, the U.S. Cold War didn’t really work and it ain’t over. On several occasions over the past 60 years the theory of Mutually Assured Destruction fell short. (With the acronym MAD, how could it work?) Robert McNamara gave a chilling account of the Cuban missile crisis in the documentary “The Fog of War.” (A documentary that changed the way I thought about the world.) According to McNamara and Castro, the order was given. The only thing between life and death for this entire world lay in the hands of a single Soviet submarine commander. He disobeyed orders so here we are, an Indian cold war. (Quick-E-Mart not Casino.)
But it’s not really a cold war. Don’t be fooled by the media’s moniker for this dispute. It’s a religious war. After the Mumbai attack India remained certain it could prevail in a “limited” war with Pakistan. Please note that India is not debating about how this war would not go nuclear. Religion has been breeding this animus for generations now. I’m not alone in stating, any war between India and Pakistan won’t end without nukes. So, back to the economy. . .
What happens when money isn’t worth anything? No food. No bribes. No reason not to fight. We won’t learn about the war on CNN. We’ll be notified when the sky turns brown with the radioactive soot of burning cities.
Better get right with Jesus. Day of the Apocalypse: June 12, 2010. Now worship me!
