If there is any place on this good planet Earth that can be called a fulminating boil, it is the land of what we humans call The Mideast, that complicated, ancient crossroads of so-called civil-ization, where warring tribes, and their proxies, clash. As much as the land has been trampled upon and blood spilled, what lies underneath is deemed of most value still, in this military-industrial age of petrochemical stink. I’m sure you’ve heard about it: that the real reason for the recent strike in Syria (oh, what? It’s still going on? now with Israeli planes rather than U.S., England, France?) is the fight over pipelines.
Oh, wait a minute. That article was from 2013! But has anything changed?
Then there’s Douglas Gabriel, of AIM4truth, his analysis, which is so complicated and tricky that he lost me very soon after beginning. And indeed, that may be the entire rationale for whatever is going on: make it so complicated that no one can understand! I do appreciate his conclusion, however, though I really have no idea how he arrived at it.
Then there’s what I would call Lionel Nation’s alt-epistemology, in which he opines, speaking of the Mideast, “The level of complexity is as deep as you want to go. You decide.” It appears that he is drawing the same conclusion as Douglas Gabriel, though I don’t want to sully my pristine mind with the “reasons.”
Along the same lines (I think!) is this article by Michael Salla.
Notice that with all three choices, Douglas Gabriel, Lionel Nation, and Michael Salla, I’m still apparently betting on the 4D chess version of Donald Trump. Because, hey, why not? What have we got to lose? Well, indeed, everything. Cf. Pascal’s Wager re: the existence of God: better to believe than not to believe, because the consequences of not believing far outweigh those of believing.
