Woke up to the news today that Saudi Arabian Oil production was attacked and seriously damaged. To me, this is all part and parcel to the poor political choices of many countries in recent decades, most notably the United States. The cold hard truth is that WWIII won’t be started by the working class, it will be started by the ultra rich in their blind, uncaring quest for profit and personal wealth.
The tensions currently plaguing the world are the direct result of the Ultra Rich, a disproportionate number of old white men, abusing their power and the poor/working class to further enrich themselves. President trump is only the most recent actor. However, his willful deceptions, obvious greed, and woeful ignorance along with his amoral character may be the straw that breaks Peace’s back. The fact that G.W. Bush and Dick Cheney never faced a war crimes tribunal for the things they did in office shows the depths to which the moral rightness of the American people has fallen to.
Our American companies have been the cause of suffering across the world for decades through the exploitation of labor through sweatshops, union busting, and governmental bribery and when that comes home to roost, 9/11 was just a taste, it will be riding a nuclear missile. We will have no one to blame but ourselves because we valued our wealth and comfort above that of anyone else. We did not care how we got our cheap junk or what it cost someone else to make as long as we got it. Then when the cost started becoming American jobs, we blamed them for taking the abuse, and the job, we were willing to give them for our crap products. We locked up Mexicans whose only illegal action was to sneak across our border to escape the life we had created for them through our greed for money and drugs.
All I can say is that when the war starts, I hope you trump supporters are proud of what you have done to the world. You lying Republicans, you White Supremacists, you Koch brothers, you Corporate Lobbyists, you Evangelical Churches, you Karl Roves, you Fox News and Rupert Murdochs, you Mike Pences and Sarah Huckabees, Sarah Palins, and on and on, will carry the blood shed in this war as will all those that blindly followed you.
