Little prospect of East-West accommodation

By W Joseph Stroupe

[This is a MUST READ. It is in two parts,
(1) The contest for global domination
(2) Little prospect of East-West accommodation]


East-West competition is intensifying on a fundamental level for (1) control of the globe's finite strategic resources and (2) access to, and control over the world's finite capital wealth. These two factors constitute the life-blood of the industrialized economy of any nation, or any geopolitical grouping of nations.

This fact distinctly limits the range and degree of compromise and accommodation on both sides, East and West. The facade constituted by East-West ideological rivalry, which in the pre-1991 era gave thick cover to the fundamental East-West contest over control of the two vital resources named above, has been getting thinner and more transparent since the death of communism in 1991.

Since 1991, that facade has only thinly veiled mounting East-West competition over those vital resources. And now, with liberal capitalism massively discredited, and swiftly giving way to statism in the West, the dissimilarity between Eastern and Western political and economic ideologies is only becoming thinner.

We are moving into an era where East and West are much less dissimilar. We will soon have Western-style statism and Eastern-style statism, with only a thin difference between the two. Especially is that so when you consider that the mounting ill effects of the deepening economic collapse in the West will undoubtedly produce such levels of civil protest, anger and disorder as to oblige Western governments to progressively curtail and revoke civil liberties, take more and more steps toward ever stricter government control, all for the sake of national security.

As the ideological facade gets thinner and thinner, near the point of evaporating completely, the underlying motives and goals on both sides will only be more fully exposed, leading to more open and bitter rivalry for the control of the two vital resources mentioned above.

Obama and his pastor were both Muslims that ‘converted’ to a Palestinian pseudo-Christianity

Obama and his pastor were both Muslims that ‘converted’ to a Palestinian pseudo-Christianity that denies the Jewish roots of the Old Testament and promotes Jew hatred. Palestinian Christianity is where stealth Muslims hide out and work to undermine Christianity and the West. It has spread from the Middle East into Europe, and is starting to emerge here and there in the USA.

Under their skin both Obama and his pastor are still Muslims using Palestinian Christianity to enable them to fit in and deflect criticism. If you study the Koran, the Hadiths, and Islamic theology you will find that Muslims are instructed to lie and deceive infidels (that’s us) to advance Islam, and kill or subdue infidels when possible.

Take note of the very close relationship between Obama’s pastor and Louis Farrakhan of the Nation of Islam. The latter provided Muslim bodyguards for Obama during the election campaign. From the start of his career in politics he has had continued substantial support from several very wealthy Muslim businessmen. America has made a terrible mistake and will pay dearly for it. I hope that Armenia and Israel survive it.
