The role President Ronald Reagan played in establishing world terror haunts the world today. So far in the past, but true, he was a President, that so many Americans revere. Who like most American Presidents had one focus. Which was his own self interest to go into the history books with greatness attached to his name.
What Americans should demand from congress. Is a national motto. Perhaps stamped on our currency broadcasting “to Hell with the People.” Because that is the end result of their service to the American public. That is most applicable for both foreign and domestic policy. Just think of the trillions spent fighting wars in Afghanistan, Iraq, Syria. And now with ISSI wars that were not and are not win able. With Obama telling the world that ISSI is on the run as a defeated enemy. But ISSI tells a different story as Allah’s best warriors inflect death and mayhem, at will and any where through out the world. With Iraq being more allied with Iran than with the United States. As for Afghanistan, O well, she’ll always remain a place where civilized people would not choose to live.
At home who do you think is responsible for what plagues America? None other than the Reid’s, McConnell’s, Ryan’s, Peloso’s, Clinton’s and the Obama’s. With lies, deceit and self interest being their captive forces. All of whom, who have contributed to the phenomenon of Donald Trump. Because those legislators, and the President make lies, deceit and self interest so attractive. Having convinced the electorate that recovery through prosperity has arrived. But the electorate are now waking up after absorbing decades of their political trickery. After having been told its the resilience of capitalism in the market place. Now the electorate knows its the truth for the few with continued financial hardships for the many. Having caught on to the nastiest of political trickery which is play the blame game. The electorate use to believe that election cycles represented a chance for change for the good. But now the electorate has discovered it isn’t so. They now know that elephants and jack asses are one and the same. They just look different but share this commonalty. Self survival at the expense of others. Welcome Donald to the White House because the electorate is willing to take the chance that you’ll make America great again.
Fault goes deeper than that because the mess the country and the world is in today is largely the fault of the Christians. Because we have allowed our government to govern from a perspective of non-Christian principles. And we the public, to whom the republic belongs must now pay the consequences. As a church, we are to splintered to be agents for change. Our hope rests in the prayer Jesus taught. “After this manner when you pray…. “Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done on earth…,” Matthew 6:9-10. Meaning, of course, until that time, work to have government function from a Christ perspective. Even a few can make a difference. The impossible can occur! Jesus said, “…. but also if you say to this mountain, ‘Be removed and cast into the sea, it will be done,'” Matthew 21:21. But only through hard strenuous work with perhaps the loss of some lives. Because Jesus was not talking about enormous clusters of rock, stones, ores, trees and dirt making grandeur mountain sites to behold and marvel over. With Jesus perhaps suggesting that mountain sites of great grandeur, represent human governments. The task of the church is to cast those mountains of great grandeur into the sea. Challenging people to be all they can be for Jesus. Then reshaping governmental institutions, committed to serve the public good, for the glory of God.
While a university student, studying political science. Professors often used the expression “might makes right.” It was always phrased as a question. As they went around the globe pointing out the over throw of sovereign governments by U.S. administrations. The various presidents of these administrations used their private or personal army for these regime changes, the Central Intelligence Agency. In particular, this student recalls the time spent by a professor lecturing on the aftermath of the Iranian revolution for the United States. Which ushered in the clerical party of fundamentalist Muslims, headed by Ayatollah Khomeini.
The CIA put the brutal government of Shah Mohammed Reza Pahlavi in power in 1953. His brutalization of the Iranian people employing his secret police, the Savak. Which fostered such hate for the Shah, that it resulted in the Shah fleeing to Morocco.
Most likely, the CIA sensing that their long time client was about to lose his control over the Iranian people. Found them busy in Paris, France, creating a new friendship with none other than Ayatollah Khomeini. Khomeini was busy forming a new Iranian government. In order to succeed he would need the support of the Americans.
In the United States, a presidential campaign was going on. Later it became known that members of the Reagan campaign were meeting with Khomeini in Paris. The plan keep the American hostages contained in the U.S. Embassy until Ronald Reagan was elected.
So Khomeini’s Iran, and Reagan’s America both got what they wanted. When all is finally played out on the world stage. It will be an arrangement that the United States will regret, more and, more and more.
The Islamic Republic of Iran is a global force. Reeking havoc where ever it is able to root itself. With Islam as its national religion. Islam amounts to a deadly weed, and the world of civilized nations once again needs to exterminate this unsightly growth. Because if the civilized world fails to do so, the end result will be the strangulation of world stability. Know this, the only force that can accomplish this, is the body of believers, who make up the Church of Jesus Christ.
The United States with its power could have moved to replaced the Shah with a true form of a democratic government. Would not have been an easy task because of the U.S. backing of the Shah for decades. But the Iranians were not any more presupposed to a Islamic fundamentalist government. When “might makes right” it was more important to win an election than move to create a democratic government. Which was a colossal error. How colossal the error, only time will tell? Because the clerical government of Ayatollah Khomeini lives on.
The CIA always felt that the Iran was strategic to the control of the Middle East. Not only the Middle East, but the entire world. From that CIA blunder, the Islamic Republic of Iran was created. From that Iranian Republic, the graphics of might making right has been rendered obsolete. With a modern version for inflicting might in order to make things right from an Islamic perspective.
Here we are in the twenty first century and the United States is experiencing the Iranian version of “might makes right.” And just think, all this because of a cowboy. Who became President, and made political deals with the Devil. Resulting in pain, and suffering for Americans then, and now!
What is happening in the world today can be only understood from a religious perspective. That is one lesson the Islamic Republic of Iran is busy teaching the United States and the world community. And they have their allies, even in the United States as they establish one more mosque after another. Global mayhem today is the handmaiden of Islam. Donald Trump says he understands that and that he’ll correct it. It has been said the best learned lessons are learned the hard way. Then, sometimes it is just to late. Let us hope it is not to late for the United States. Will the electorate give Trump the oval office as the nations last chance to learn some lessons the hard way?
