Decaying Psychopath Advocates Nuclear Escalations, North Korean “Extinction”
To this day Zionists often cite a 2005 claim by former Iranian president Mahmoud Ahmadinejad that Israel ought to be “wiped off the map” as evidence that the nation is right to maintain its intensely hawkish military policy toward its neighbors. When the Ahmadinejad quote first surfaced it sent shockwaves throughout the world, grabbed international headlines and did much to help paint Iran as a dangerous, despotic government that may need to be invaded at any moment to prevent it from becoming nuclear-capable.
Fun fact: that quote never actually happened. Ahmadinejad said no such thing; it was a mistranslated comment taken grossly out of context in which he was actually quoting something the Ayatollah Khomeini had said decades earlier predicting that Israel would not be able to sustain itself and would eventually fall. As The Guardian’s Jonathan Steele noted the following year, the comment was twisted in an even more grotesque and shameless fashion than the propagandistic spin on Khrushchev’s “we will bury you” remark during the Cold War, which in context was an innocuous prediction that socialism would win out over capitalism but was twisted by the mass media into a threat of nuclear obliteration.
The world was plunged into frantic hysteria from which it has still not recovered by the fictional Ahmadinejad quote, but how much pushback do you think CNN’s simpering sycophant Jake Tapper gave bloodthirsty psychopath John McCain when he said yesterday in plain English that Washington needs to “make sure that Kim Jong Un knows that if he acts in an aggressive fashion, the price will be extinction”?
You guessed it: zip. Tapper, who had already built up a reputation as a fawning McCain groupie, let the comment go completely unchallenged and changed the subject to Trump and DACA. Also unquestioned went McCain’s assertion that a nuclear-capable North Korea is not something the world can possibly learn to live with, and that the United States should “seriously consider” bringing its own nuclear weapons back to the Korean peninsula.
Yes, although America already has the capability to nuke the DPRK with Ohio-class submarines and the nuclear-capable aircraft it routinely flies along its border, John McCain would like to add a few more variables that can go catastrophically wrong into the mix.
This is insane. This man’s brain is eating itself alive and he’s still using his platform and popularity to help manufacture public support for escalations that make human extinction more likely. Nobody this close to death’s door has any business inflicting such horrors upon our species; it’s like he’s done with the world now so he’s ready to flush it down the toilet. This world is for the living; the half-dead have no business involving themselves in its affairs. I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again: John McCain should just die already if he loves death so much and leave life to the living.
Another fun fact: when filmmaker Chris Marker visited the DPRK four whole years after the US had finished bombing every standing structure in the northern half of the peninsula it had arbitrarily divided in half the day after Nagasaki was annihilated, he wrote the following:
Extermination passed over this land. Who could count what burned with the houses? Traditional Korean beliefs profoundly linked the spirits to their material abode — Jyoeng Chu, the Spirit of the Highest Beam, Tyei Syok, the Guardian Spirit of the master of the house, and the souls of the ancestors preserved in the baskets of clothing… For all those there can be no resurrection, and there is no other choice for the living.
But first of all: four million dead, the hatreds fanned to flames, the infinite accounts to be settled (a new saga of the Atreidae), all the accumulated lies… Spare me passionless judgments. The misunderstanding of the other is as inseparable from war as from love, and to rebuff the warrior convinced that the others started it would hardly go down well with the Heroes-of-the-Big-One in our own families. When a country is split in two by an artificial border and irreconcilable propaganda is exercised on each side, it’s naïve to ask where the war comes from: the border is the war.
Reads like it was ripped straight out of McCain’s wildest sexual fantasies.
