Spend a day in the American wilderness with the sun shining, and you’d think you’d been parachuted into heaven, unless you’re broken down, lost, and thirsty without water, in which case you might feel like you’ve been dropped somewhere else, — but precluding such emergencies, you might think you’d been given a day in paradise.
But look down to your feet. Down there, underneath the soil several thousand miles, there are people being murdered.
The British Parliamentary Left’s response to Assad’s War Crimes in Syria is disgusting. What they have done is like voting to not bomb the rail lines to the Nazi concentration camps “because they didn’t want to get involved”.
And here we must differ strongly with our political hero, Ron Paul, and the entourage around him, who oppose military action in Syria. The excuse that we will be helping Al-Quaeda or the Jihadists in the opposition forces if we hit Assad’s military, (and why not hit Assad himself?) is a thin one indeed, for if there are clearly identifiable units and militias in the opposition forces that are al-Quaeda, then does not America, or at least the Obama Administration, have a policy of hitting those groups with drones? And if they can be so identified, then should these groups not also be subject to the same treatment as Obama has used on radicals in Pakistan and Yemen, creating multitudes of new radicals as he goes by killing innocent bystanders and relatives of these radicals — far more radicals than he is killing? A stupid policy from a stupid President.
Silverwolf agrees in theory with Ron Paul that we do not need, and should not have, roughly 700 military bases around the world. Let the rich Euros and Nipponese pay for them, not the American small Capitalist. But since we violate this principle every day with NATO, and with our drone strikes on militants, then why not use our military to send a very powerful deterrent message to one of the world’s worst current War Criminals. Any military action against such a bestial Nazi is a plus for world Libertarianism, in our opinion.
It seems to us that Jeffersonian Libertarianism or Classical Liberalism has this in common with Communism and Jihadist Islam — that it seeks to establish its moral code around the world. Communism and Fanatical Organized Religion both have their need to establish their tyranny over the entire globe, or see themselves fail and self-immolate. But Libertarianism, based on the Natural Rights theory that all Human Beings have Inalienable Rights and that the true function of government is merely to guarantee and protect those Rights, prosecuting those who would violate them, — Libertarianism too has its need to spread around the globe, and become the norm for Mankind wherever he goes on the Planet. You can’t just have Libertarianism in America, and say, to hell with the 8000 dowery murders per year in India, or the thousands of executions in Red China. Here we very strongly disagree with Ron Paul’s seeming to isolate these Rights to within the borders of the United States, and to not much care about the Natural Rights violations that are going on around the globe daily. Ron Paul and his entourage are right, however, in being extremely cautious about using the military outside of America, and at the drop of a hat. Throughout history, governments have used moral arguments to get into wars for which they really had economic and sinister motives. This is true most of the time. But now that we can specifically target War Criminals and their Militaries, as in Syria and North Korea, with highly accurate missiles, Silverwolf is not going to protest any more than he’d protest every day against the presence of US bases in Europe or Japan.
And as for that Stinking British Labour Party, and George Galloway, MP, — what a bunch of self-centred collaborators with Hitlerism.
