BROTHER MALCOM X WAS RIGHT: -
(About 'Chickens Roosting')
As the 'experts' endlessly prate about who made what mistakes in determining the cause of the latest terrifying attempt of international immolation (Detroit Northwest Flight #235'- Abdulmutallah's underwear-bomb), recollections of the accuracy of Malcom X's predictions about the United States of America ricochet through my mind.
Similarly, echoes, of the adage "What goes around - comes around" also flicker through my consciousness and when I look at the images of Umar Farouk Abdulmutallah (who looks like a startled nine year old - a deer caught in the headlights of a speeding automobile) I'm nearly overcome by a sense of ineffable tristesse at the pitiful stage of our world's counterproductive development of 'victims victimizing victims.'
Indeed, the more (white male-dominated) media in the U.S.A. try to present Abdulmutallah as a raging terrorist, the more he comes across as a hapless victim of monstrous manipulation.
But these efforts, along with other attempts at displacing responsibility for the adversarial nature of the world's 'military ping-pong' affairs will ultimately fail. I'm reminded of the prophetic phrase, "...the worm turns..." and all the endless doublespeak, by hypocrites who know better, about "intelligence failures," "secure areas," "let him through," "war on terrorism," "holding them responsible," "retaliation" and the ultimate vacuous 'wool-puller,' "national security," - which catch-all phrase is used by war dawgs who want to continue to scare the bejeezus out of a gullible public.
It's at once amazing and morally repugnant to me that I've not heard one single commentator, prognosticator, analyst, academician or Heaven forfend, politician - be honest enough to admit publicly that there's no such thing as "national security!" Please! If one continually dumps excrement in what they're fond of calling their 'backyards,' there will one day emerge an untenable stench! This hegemonic behavior of the U.S.A. on the world stage (invading over two hundred countries - mostly of color, like Grenada, Iraq and the Philippines in the past howmany decades) has evolved into escalating instances of what is hypocritically described as "terrorism" (the pot calling the kettle Black) but in reality is understandably-antisocial "payback" for perceived and actual injury.
The more the West (including Israel, Europe) continues to treat countries of color as their fecal 'backyards,' all the while waging inernecine military raids for resources/raw materials like oil, the more horribly-desperate huemans will be persuaded that 'going out in a blaze of gory' (pardon) and taking Western perpetrators with 'em, is better than living a hopeless life.
Question: Is there a subliminal 'fear-of-Blackness' connection between the U.S.A. war dawg military occupation of countries of color and white males' refusal to end the Death Penalty in the U.S.A.?
Under the present circumstances, I take no pleasure in remembering that other apt verity: "What ye sow, so shall ye reap!" The West sows - and the world's people reap/weep!
