A BITTER PILL:
Abortion and the Syrian Pretext for War
FILED BY PAULY FONGEMIE, SEPTEMBER 2, 2013 [LABOR DAY]
The television news was on in the background - I was working and not really tuned in - when I heard Catholic renegade and Secretary of State John Kerry's voice. Actually I should say Secretary of War. He was sounding the drumbeat for war with Syria over the use of sarin gas or chemical weaponry to punish the rebels, who are as anti-Christian and anti-West as the Syrian regime. In this civil conflict there are no "good guys". Murderous thugs are well, murderous thugs. No one with any sense of brotherly love can approve of the use of the deadly gas on women and children, who are but inconveniences for Syria's Assad, and a useful hinge for the Muslim extremists.
What struck me was that before it dawned that it was the crisis in Syria that fueled Kerry's latest passion for outrage, I briefly thought that he must have had a midnight conversion on the matter of the Church and her condemnation of abortion. I distinctly recall Kerry talking about all the babies being killed by chemicals and that it was a moral obscenity, which it surely is. WOW! I thought, the power of prayer and the mercy of the grace of God. This rejoicing was but a moment long for then I heard Syria and all of the rest of his justification for war.
Apart from the horror of war and all its atrocities, especially as it affects women and children who are not combatants, I was stunned by the depth and scope of the irony and how seemingly unaware Kerry and Obama are that they are so two-faced. But then Obama symbolizes paradox itself.
Here we have two obscenities defended by our own regime: war on two fronts: on the one hand war on innocent, helpless babies in the womb, millions, not just a few thousand, who are poisoned to death by chemical warfare - most early abortions are this method, rather than the surgical strike [another war term, more irony]! And on the other the curious but altogether too expected phony pretext for aiding the Islamist rebels who are aided by Saudi Arabia, who fund the Muslim Brotherhood and also by us, I suspect by our gun running to them, which is the real story behind the Benghazi tragedy.
Certainly it cannot in all honesty be the use of chemical weapons on citizens, against the Geneva Convention, for even the UN fails to see that this rises to the level of the brutality of war in such a conflict, because the US has not done this in some time because the reality of war is so weighty that only an immediate threat to the country would justify taking such measures. It is not as if Assad just decided to use sarin gas on an entirely innocent population for the purpose of exterminating them gratuitously. If he is the actual perpetrator, he at least felt threatened, whether he incurred the threat from his own evil deeds or not. Thus there is no moral duty, given the exigencies of modern warfare in that powder keg region of the Middle East, mostly arrayed against Israel, to go after Syria, especially since the potential for making matters worse grows exponentially. And even more deadly than ever - more than a mere possibility. The timing of the Obama administration alone is suspect as is their feigned outrage, given that it fails to recognize or if it does, care two wits about the brutality of the murder of innocent babies residing in the womb, which is supposed to be a place of safety and refuge from all harm.
In all truth unparsed, once again, as in Iraq, we are on the verge of aiding the worst of two evil choices, always in favor of those who are willing to persecute and slaughter Christians, while ousting or attacking the one, whatever evil he instigates, he at least protects Christians! Do not the American people see at last???
In today's war speak all bets are off but one. As in Iraq [the pretext of weapons of mass destruction and Biden's call for the impeachment of Bush], we will only succeed in making that region of the world safer than ever for Islam and its most virulent strains and always less safe, unconsciencely so, for Christians - per Iraq and Egypt.
All bets are off because in his total incompetence as Commander-in-Chief, Obama has already telegraphed ahead our plans to the enemy. Beyond belief or reason!
All in all, any way one looks at the impending peril, it is a bitter pill to swallow, much like a suicidal wish undertaken in foolhardy and reckless obeisance to nihilist ideas in order to shore up a president's vanity and his failing presidency as he gives every strong hint that he is willing to bring the USA toppling down with him in a rush to Armageddon, if he sees the need, no matter what Congress decides or what the moral imperative is!
