What To Do?

ZeroHedge, civil war inevitable:

In France, the global elites made a choice. They decided that the “bad” voters in France were unreasonable people too stupid to see the beauties of a society open to people who often who do not want to assimilate, who want you to assimilate to them, and who threaten to kill you if you do not. The elite took the side against their own old and poor because those people did not want to vote for them any longer. They also made a choice not to fight Islamism because Muslims vote collectively for this global elite…

As Mathieu Bock-Côté, a sociologist in France and Canada, says in Le Figaro:
“Western elites, with a suicidal obstinacy, oppose naming the enemy. Confronted by attacks in Brussels or Paris, they prefer to imagine a philosophical fight between democracy and terrorism, between an open society and fanaticism, between civilization and barbarism”.

And now that Erdogan has survived a ‘coup’, he can go back to threatening to unleash millions of Muslim refugees into Europe. And a few weeks after patching up relations with Russia, Erdogan is now holding 1,500 US servicemen hostage (as well as 50 B51 nuclear bombs) in Incirlik Air Base, accusing the USA of fomenting the coup against him, and threatening war with the USA if some Turkish cleric isn’t extradited from the USA.

What to do? There was only one thing to do: I drove out into the depths of Herefordshire, and had a beer and a cigarette in the quiet sunny garden of a country pub.

    on topic: Indeed, as Voltaire said, “cultivate your garden.”

    On Turkey: Govt policies are now so opaque and byzantine that normal people (to the extent that I’m normal) can’t dope them out. Our feckless govt may well give in and give them the guy they want–Kerry (our secy of state) was making muling noises this morning and Obama gave unqualified support to the “legitimate” Erdogan govt. Never mind that he’s a theocratic dictator, we cynically need that base, which makes me doubt that we’d be behind, or leave any clues that we were behind or even supportive of, the coup. Unless we felt he was about to kick us out. Byzantine. Opaque. Inept double-dealing? Who the f knows?

    Frank, as you might guess, I have contrary opinions. (Two cheers for me!)

    Former CIA officer says Obama has lost control of the Middle East. When did Obama (or anyone else) ever have control of the Middle East? The region has been a colossal mess for as long as I can remember. From coups in Turkey to cop killings in Dallas, is Obama supposed to know about and prevent every bad thing that happens anyplace in the world?

    Re Erdogan, like him or not, he appears to have been legitimately elected.

    Erdogan patching up relations with Russia. Considering that Turkey shot down a Russian jet, a little diplomatic patching was probably in order.

    Erdogan holding 1,500 U. S. servicemen hostage. Nonsense. The U. S. military sensibly locked down the base and suspended aircraft flights. You don’t want isolated soldiers on the streets of a war zone, and you don’t want to fly aircraft that might be fired upon or that might be interpreted as supporting one side or the other.

    Re the above, the airbase’s external electric power was shut down. (Deliberately or just part of a general disruption?) The base has an internal power supply as backup for this type of situation.

    Re the 50 (I think it’s B61) nuclear bombs, the U. S. is very secretive about its nuclear arsenal. An “exact” number of 50 makes me suspicious, but this is out of my league.

    Did Erdogan threaten war with the U. S.? Per the link, “Turkish Prime Minister Binali Yildirim said that the country considers itself at war with any nation that stands by the US-based Muslim cleric Fethullah Gulen.” The Turkish government wants Gulen extradited from the U. S. The U. S. said it will if normal legal requirements are met. This is pretty standard procedure between countries.

    Some of this stuff is downright silly. What if Turkey sends a drone aircraft to Pennsylvania to kill this (accused) terrorist? I don’t know if Turkey has a drone capability, but if they do, the hell with diplomacy – might makes right – the drone would be shot down long before it reached U. S. airspace.

    Re the South China Sea, Obama has been building up U. S. military assets in this part of the world for a number of years. Below is a link from 2011.

    It’s near 6 AM in NY. I think I’ve caused enough trouble for one night.

    Yes indeed, at times it is pleasant to get off the merry-go-round and take the time to smell the flowers and listen to the birds sing.

    A couple of glasses of beer/wine and several cigarettes add to the enjoyment.

    Toss in an hour of Peter, Paul and Mary for tranquil music.

    Ah ,those were the days!

    Protesters these days have no soul and definitely no music:
    Such as ‘Blowing in the Wind’ or ‘Where have All the Flowers Gone’.

    Am watching protesters at the RNC, all they seem to do is scream, shout, and destroy other people things or lives.
