The war that has engulfed Syria and spread into Iraq has displaced 14 million people, including four million Syrian refugees scattered to neighboring countries, and it has created “host fatigue,” which has further aggravated the crisis, United Nations officials said Friday. In remarks to the United Nations Security Council, the officials also rebuked its 15 members for what they called a failure to exert authority to intervene in the four-year-old Syria war, which has left 220,000 people dead.In fact the Syria war didn't "engulf". It was intentionally started and funded and armed by USA STRONG with major assistance by NYTimes, both loyally obeying Our Lord And Saviour And Prophet Binyamin Netanyahu [pbuh]. The problem is not LACK of intervention, the problem is CONSTANT MURDEROUS INTERVENTION by the major countries. = = = = = The latter from a minor Satan-slave. Headline: "Florida getting hotter in a bad way." = = = = = Nuff said. Part of a natural cycle, so it must be our fault. = = = = = Think about this. What is the desired result of BOTH propaganda tricks? In the former, Satan wants us to "INTERVENE" MORE to stop "natural phenomena" like war. This is crazy three ways at once, but skip that for the moment. The desired consequence is MORE MILITARY ACTION. Always MORE MORE MORE. Never enough. Infinity is a tiny baby step. In the latter, Satan wants us to ELIMINATE MODERN CIVILIZATION to stop "unnatural phenomena" like "global warming". Also crazy three ways, but skip that for the moment. The desired consequence is ZERO CIVILIZATION. Take both requirements together and what do you get? A world with INFINITE WAR AND ZERO CIVILIZATION. After you put it together, the contradiction disappears. Symmetry is beautiful! When everyone is fighting, there is no civilization. Total war solves "global warming". Presto!
Polistra was named after the original townsite of Manhattan (the one in Kansas). When I was growing up in Manhattan, I spent a lot of time exploring by foot, bike, and car. I discovered the ruins of an old mill along Wildcat Creek, and decided (inaccurately) that it was the remains of the original site of Polistra. Accurate or not, I've always liked the name, with its echoes of Poland (an under-appreciated friend of freedom) and stars. ==== The title icon is explained here. ==== Switchover: This 2007 entry marks a sharp change in worldview from neocon to pure populist. ===== The long illustrated story of Polistra's Dream is a time-travel fable, attempting to answer the dangerous revision of New Deal history propagated by Amity Shlaes. The Dream has 8 episodes, linked in a chain from the first. This entry explains the Shlaes connection.
