More violence is always the answer
All over the world people are in universal agreement that the solution to the endless, horrible wars in the middle east is to escalate the levels of violence. All the Republican presidential candidates, Hillary Clinton, leaders from both political parties, foreign leaders such as Putin, Presidents Cameron and Hollande, news media pundits and former generals are speaking in one voice.
Everyone, everywhere agrees that bringing more and greater destruction upon Syria, Iraq, and other nations is the ticket to peace and prosperity.
Which makes me wonder why, in 5,000 years of recorded ME history, no one has thought of this before?
Just kill more people! It's such a simple solution.
Just look at how this strategy has worked for us.
We've been bombing Iraq for 24 years and things have never been better in Iraq.
We've been bombing Afghanistan for 14 years and now their opium production is the envy of the world.
Just look at our success against al-Qaeda.
14 years ago they had an army of nearly 200 guys, and now they can barely field 20,000 militants.
However, the real brilliance of this winning strategy of ever increasing violence is when you bring it home.
Unlike every other first world nation, we still discourage murder by doing executions, and look how successful that has been.
Murders almost never happen in the United States anymore. This is especially true in the states with the highest execution rates, like Texas and Florida.
Let's not forget that we put people in prison at higher rates than apartheid South Africa and Stalin's Soviet Union, and look at how that has eliminated crime in the United States.
Plus, by making our prisons into violent Hell-holes we've ensured that recidivism is a thing of the past.
I just wonder why its taken 5,000 years for the world to figure out what every 4th grade bully in a playground knows - that using violence to get people to do what you want is always the right thing to do.
It's never a good time to talk to people you disagree with, because it is always Nuremberg in 1938. It's never, well, any other time or situation in history.
You should always threaten or use force, both between nations and between people, because that's the only thing that people who see things differently will understand.
What's more, bringing death and destruction to other nations, peoples, and communities is the humane thing to do because we are the good guys, and good guys kill in the name of good. Bad guys kill in the name of bad, and that's a totally different thing.
Personally, I'm thrilled that we've finally discovered the key to peace and prosperity, which is death and destruction, and we are so willing to share this discovery with the entire world.
