An article I wrote about what is happening in Iraq due to Bush and his Axis of Evil: Cheney - Rice - Rumsfield. An original darker version was considered for publication by Lew Rockwell.
Do I read Nietzsche very much? No - I frequently get headaches after reading his works.
BEAST OF PREY
THE EVE OF DESTRUCTION
By Ron Getty
Friedrich Nietzsche wrote in part:
“Deep within all the noble races there lurks the Beast of Prey, bent on spoil and conquest. This hidden urge has to be satisfied from time to time, the beast let loose in the wilderness… The noble races have everywhere left in their wake the catchword "barbarian." .....their utter indifference to safety and comfort, their terrible pleasure in destruction, their taste for cruelty -- all these traits are embodied by their victims in the image of the "barbarian," and "evil enemy," the Goth or the Vandal… “
Bush’s “Just Cause” was to thwart Saddam’s WMD and his partner Osama bin Laden and their attempts to obliterate America using a Holocaust of nuclear and biological weapons. Bush said, “We must strike now before the enemies of our way of life complete their mission. “ This has proven to be a rhetorical Grand Illusion with no WMD’s and no Osama bin Laden partnership.
Without any forethought to what was meant to happen and the unintended consequences of what did happen, Bush like a latter day Vandal, has ravaged Iraq. Bush’s indifference to the horrors visited on the citizens of Iraq will reach our shores in payback. Americans will reap a whirlwind of revenge which will make the Twin Towers seem like child’s play in comparison. All due to Bush and his innocence of the Beast of Prey conscience despite the depredations visited on the people of Iraq.
The “Axis of Evil” is not Nations. The real evils are people like Rove, Feith and Cheney or Rice, Rumsfield and Bolton. Bush and his Disciples of Manifest Democracy truly believed they would be welcomed with open arms and flower strewn paths.
Bush and his Beast of Prey driven by blood lust are barely slaked by the sacrifices of American troops. This Crusade will continue in the name of “The Noble Cause” and requires sending troopers to die while fighting under the false flag of the” War on Terrorism”.
Bush and the Beast of Prey shouts,” Cry Havoc! Let Lose the Dogs of War!” and “Onward Christians Soldiers”! Bush needs these bloody sacrifices for his Altar of Conquest. Who gets the spoils of War? Hail Halliburton, KBR and all government contractors. Fill the coffins with fallen warriors while lining your pockets.
Bush and the Beasts of Prey do not care how many die in the name of the Noble Cause. Why should they! It is someone else’s sons and daughters, fathers and mothers, brothers and sisters who pay the ultimate price. Never the spawn of the Beast of Prey! These spawn have other priorities and can not be sacrificed.
Bush and his Beast of Prey send his Christian Crusaders into battle against the Infidel Terrorists. Then can only stand by and watch how so few terrorists tie down the Warriors of Democracy.
Bush does not listen to the voices begging for better training, personal armor and knowledgeable senior officers who understand 4th Generation warfare. He turns a deaf ear to those who suffer dis-membering wounds. His generals create tactics and strategy which only alienates the very people Bush is trying to save for Democracy.
Bush just keeps on believing those haunting cries in the Wilderness do nothing but give aid and comfort to terrorists.
Remember the rousing glory of,” Mission Accomplished”! Three years later Bush and his Beast of Prey said yesterday,” Our efforts in Iraq and the broader Middle East will require more time, more sacrifice and continued resolve.”
How much more effort over what period of time is needed to resolve the sacrifices being made by everyone but Bush and his Beast of Prey?
