Rashad Ibn 1 month ago (edited) This was an interesting session that definitely highlighted some salient points about the CIA. I enjoy Chris Hedges and have almost read all of his books. However I think it would be unwise to take everything at face value about the CIA kind of stumbling into mismanagement, assassinations, and lack of oversight since 9/11. The predecessor to the CIA, the OSS founded in 1942, under Roosevelt was the same criminal, entity. It allowed drugs to be sold into poor African American neighborhoods to fund the secret war against communism in Europe. There is no evidence to suggest this has ended. This is about institutionalizing plunder, murder, exploitation, and sin in secrecy, and will not end just because you close the door of the CIA. I hope that Chris could one day interview someone like Doug Valentine, I think personally his CIA knowledge is more holistic and comprehensive. The Real News Network 1 month ago Thanks for the feedback, Rashad! Rashad Ibn 1 month ago @The Real News Network Thanks for having the interview, love your work! Bisquick 1 month ago

EXACTLY this Rashad. Reminded of Michael Parenti, an excerpt from his piece Mystery: How Wealth Creates Poverty which I think can be easily extrapolated in its direct and plain language to illuminate your more than apt contention (highly recommend anyone interested in this angle to check out the full piece which fleshes all this out far more, merely trying to condense the point I think Rashad is getting at):

In their perpetual confusion, some liberal critics conclude that foreign aid and IMF and World Bank structural adjustments “do not work”; the end result is less self-sufficiency and more poverty for the recipient nations, they point out. Why then do the rich member states continue to fund the IMF and World Bank? Are their leaders just less intelligent than the critics who keep pointing out to them that their policies are having the opposite effect?

No, it is the critics who are stupid not the western leaders and investors who own so much of the world and enjoy such immense wealth and success. They pursue their aid and foreign loan programs because such programs do work. The question is, work for whom? Cui bono? The purpose behind their investments, loans, and aid programs is not to uplift the masses in other countries. That is certainly not the business they are in. T

he purpose is to serve the interests of global capital accumulation, to take over the lands and local economies of Third World peoples, monopolize their markets, depress their wages, indenture their labor with enormous debts, privatize their public service sector, and prevent these nations from emerging as trade competitors by not allowing them a normal development.In these respects, investments, foreign loans, and structural adjustments work very well indeed.The real mystery is: why do some people find such an analysis to be so improbable, a “conspiratorial” imagining? Why are they skeptical that U.S. rulers knowingly and deliberately pursue such ruthless policies (suppress wages, rollback environmental protections, eliminate the public sector, cut human services) in the Third World?

These rulers are pursuing much the same policies right here in our own country!Isn’t it time that liberal critics stop thinking that the people who own so much of the world---and want to own it all---are “incompetent” or “misguided” or “failing to see the unintended consequences of their policies”? You are not being very smart when you think your enemies are not as smart as you. They know where their interests lie, and so should we.

Conversely, William Casey, demonic arcon CIA Director under Reagan, also comes to mind, in his hubris unambiguously describing the intended efficacy of Operation Mockingbird,

"We'll know our disinformation program is complete when everything the American public believes is false."

Surely he's giving two big thumbs up in hell, which at this point is probably hard to distinguish from the world he helped create for us...ubiquitously inundated via a technologically mediated digital spectacle that effectively keeps us systemically paralyzed in an individually insulated social miasma of reaction, tragedy, and farce... But uh...pessimism of the intellect, optimism of the will...or something lol...

Actually, if anyone's interested, I'm recalling Parenti's lecture on Conspiracy and Class Power gets at the CIA angle far more directly and I think is also a great breakdown of the social gaslighting and correspondingly cultivated ideological lacunas/compartmentalization that constantly erode our confidence/imagination to act/organize effectively toward any sort of collective escape velocity by reinforcing a broader historical understanding and continuity which necessarily breaks down and overrides any artificially imposed mental barriers through a concrete existential "dasein" communion with the larger scope of history and by extension each other, ie anchoring of our unique experience situated within this particular time/space to a broader class consciousness - in the same sort of guiding world spirit principle of universal justice Chris so eloquently speaks to, but rooted from a more marxist perspective of dialectical/historical materialism, if that made any sense lol...:

Dulles did get Kennedy because he fired him after the Bay of Pigs. I'm a Navy radioman vet that was stationed at Naval Communications Station Binh Thuy. The CIA was running poppy flying in Cessna bird dogs down to the air base in Can Tho and going up river in PBR's with South Vietnamese military to Chau Doc.

One time a NSA boss asked me in the radio shack does the CIA and DIA share info. I told him that's your job. He just wanted to see if I was going to talk. My response pissed him off he goes I beg your pardon then I said you heard me don't play that white boy sh*t with me and you're excused. He left hot because he thought this black man was going to punk out.

After serving 4 years in the Navy in Intelligence with a secret clearance I worked another 14.5 years in the Department of Defense in “supply chain management.” I directly supplied every U.S. military base in the world and our navy ships by FEDEX overnight shipping. I worked a mandatory 2 hours overtime every day.

Our foreign policy is indirectly operated by Wall Street. Or what is called as “The Military Industrial Complex.” What’s even worse the World bankers use our FED and the IRS and the U.S. Treasury as a “Kitty” to control World Policy.

In other words, the U.S. dollar is blood money. Furthermore, the Global elite use the CIA and Israel’s Mossad and Britain’s MI6 as secret operatives to ensure World dominance.

The Council on Foreign Relations (CFR) created by the late David Rockefeller is directing the reigns on any President. The CFR always has representatives in the State Department unchosen by the President. This dude was a goody two shoe.

This is interesting:

Seems like almost like some bot-like A.I.-assisted video coming from Macron or Macron's camp. First Post - is nearly there "first post" and has all the tags or keywords and a big catchy title. Is it true, who knows...?

Things appear to be moving though in Europe.

Greetings my dear truth seekers. Poland accuses Germany of selfishness because Berlin wants to

0:25 help its industry to buy gas in the face of the biggest energy crisis since the Second World War.

0:31 Warsaw is very unhappy with Germany's attempts to save its industry, as this

0:35 will not allow the European Union to raise enough money for Poland to buy expensive gas.

0:40 In principle, the discontent of the Poles can be understood.

0:44 Germany makes it clear that all that matters to it is to save only its industry, and Berlin

0:49 will try to save its factories this winter only by taking gas from neighboring countries. Simply put,

0:55 the EU has a serious problem now. This winter, in the European Union everyone will be for himself.

1:03 The other day, Berlin announced its plan to allocate an exorbitant amount of 200

1:07 billion euros to support German industry, which is being hit hard by high gas prices,

1:11 and to abandon the gas tax, which was supposed to be introduced on October 1. Against the background

1:18 of the energy crisis, factories in Germany are reducing production volumes or closing.

1:23 And attempts to support German enterprises in such difficult days on the part of the German

1:28 authorities seem natural and logical. However, Poland does not think so. Polish Prime Minister

1:35 Mateusz Morawiecki accused Germany of selfishness. The Prime Minister of Poland said that “The energy

1:42 policy of the European Union should not be implemented under the dictation of Germany.

1:47 According to him, Germany constantly tells everyone in Europe how to behave and what to do.

1:53 Mateusz Morawiecki claims that today Berlin, using the powerful force of its economy, its capital,

1:58 wants to allocate huge funds, specifically 200 billion euros, to help only German industry.

2:04 The Prime Minister of Poland also added that the Polish government is doing everything to

2:09 help Polish households with the prices of gas and electricity and that Warsaw will make every effort

2:14 to fight for the preservation of Polish industry. The Polish prime minister is confident that

2:20 Germany's actions to support its gas importers are destructive for the entire European Union.

2:25 Warsaw has officially declared that Poland will never allow Polish industry to be in a worse

2:30 position than the industry of Germany, Austria, or other countries of the European Union. In part,

2:36 Poland's dissatisfaction can be understood because over the past twenty years, the European Union,

2:42 with the very active support of Germany, France, and other countries of Western Europe,

2:46 has been reducing direct and indirect subsidies to both state-owned enterprises and the private

2:51 sector in countries of Eastern Europe. That is why many industries in countries of Eastern

2:56 Europe could not function normally. However, on the other hand, it is Poland that is the largest

3:02 recipient of grants and European assistance in terms of infrastructure and equalization funds.

3:07 And it is Germany, as the main donor, that helps the Polish economy through these funds.

3:13 As for Germany, you need to understand that the gas crisis actually hit it harder than

3:17 France or Austria. The current crisis hits the EU countries in different ways.

3:23 For example, France and Austria are in a better position than other countries in Western or

3:28 Central Europe because these countries have a more diversified generation structure.

3:33 France is dominated by nuclear energy, while Austria has a relatively high share of hydropower.

3:39 Therefore, the crisis will affect these countries less than, for example, Germany, which is quite

3:45 seriously dependent on gas imports. Therefore, I fully understand Germany's desire to help its

3:51 industry, since it is the German industry that is the locomotive of the entire European Union.

3:56 On the other hand, assistance for the German industry in the form of 200 billion euros can

4:01 significantly worsen the situation of enterprises in neighboring countries, including Poland,

4:06 since thanks to subsidies, German enterprises will be able to pay more for energy resources,

4:10 respectively, they will be able to physically receive more gas.

4:14 This means that some other factories from neighboring European countries will be

4:18 left without energy and will not be able to work normally. In Poland, they are well aware of this,

4:24 and therefore Warsaw entered into an open battle against Germany for energy resources.

4:30 Poland is now making every effort to ensure that Germany does not draw part of the energy

4:34 resources from its neighbors to itself. Warsaw plans to deprive Germany of Norwegian gas.

4:41 Germany and Poland have already entered the battle for uncontracted volumes of Norwegian gas.

4:47 It is worth noting another important fact. Poland communicates so sharply and rudely only with

4:53 Germany. France, for example, does not cause such a nervous reaction from the Polish authorities.

5:00 Although Paris is also actively helping only its real sector of the economy by limiting

5:05 electricity prices. In the past few months, Poland has stepped up its conflict with Germany.

5:11 Warsaw suddenly started demanding war reparations from Germany and started accusing Berlin of

5:16 misappropriating energy resources. It is obvious that Europe found itself in such a difficult

5:22 situation for the first time since the Second World War. And everything that is happening

5:27 indicates that the much-lauded ''European Unity'' has ceased to exist and that European countries

5:32 have begun to think only about their own skin by taking resources from their neighbors.

LOL - up is down down is up; the world is upside down -

all right Alexandra let's talk about the

0:01 situation with regards to oil and OPEC

0:04 plus and a two million Barrel a day

0:07 production cut

0:10 this is after Biden went to Saudi Arabia

0:13 and he was talking about Saudi Arabia

0:15 actually increasing capacity by a

0:17 million increasing production by a

0:19 million million barrels a day the Saudis

0:21 said uh uh we were talking about

0:23 increasing capacity in 2027 by about a

0:27 million barrels a day nothing to do with

0:30 production but uh you know Biden thought

0:32 that he had uh he had everything squared

0:35 away he didn't he doesn't the U.S is

0:39 flipping out they are saying that this

0:41 is some sort of collusion between MBS

0:43 and Putin and Saudi Arabia's siding with

0:46 Russia and Saudi Arabia is going to pay

0:48 a very heavy price for this betrayal

0:51 meanwhile Biden is looking at Venezuela

0:54 to try and help out and Biden is now

0:56 going to re-tap he had a little bit of a

0:59 pause like about a week's pause but now

1:01 he's going to re-tap into America's

1:04 strategic petroleum reserves which are

1:06 already at a 40-year low retired [ __ ]

1:11 Red Alert low uh

1:14 not looking good

1:16 for Biden Saudi Arabia has uh has

1:20 definitely sent the collective West a

1:23 message though

1:24 I think Saudi Arabia was just acting out

1:26 in its best interest given also

1:29 everything that the collective West has

1:30 tried to do to OPEC and to oil into gas

1:33 into energy they've been trying to

1:35 control energy and the price of oil and

1:38 the price of gas and Saudi Arabia is

1:40 just saying

1:41 no we're not going to put up with this

1:43 we're going to do what's in our best

1:44 interest and

1:45 we're not going to let you guys walk all

1:47 over us that's and you can see it in

1:49 that exchange between the Reuters

1:50 reporter and the Saudi energy Minister I

1:52 think that exchange had a lot of meaning

1:55 a lot of hidden meeting there you know

1:57 we're we're a sovereign country we're

1:58 not going to let you guys uh roll all

2:01 over us or control us anyway uh

2:03 incredible developments that have taken

2:05 place and actually I think I was reading

2:06 an article Alexander I forgot what it

2:08 was about I forgot what it was about I

2:09 forgot what it exactly was saying but it

2:12 was from Bloomberg and it was something

2:13 along the lines of

2:15 um

2:17 so oh yeah I know what it is Saudi

2:19 Arabia has said a ramco aramco has said

2:22 that they're going to actually sell oil

2:24 to the West at 20 cents more

2:28 while they're going to leave the price

2:29 of oil exported to Asia at its current

2:32 price levels kind of like a cherry a

2:35 cherry on top of the uh of the uh I'm

2:39 gonna use a bad word of the you know

2:41 what cake

2:43 everything that's happening incredible

2:46 yeah I I think you're completing right

2:48 now let's talk about this Russian

2:49 collusion between Saudi Arabia you know

2:51 the Democrats are obsessed with the

2:53 topic of Russian collusion everybody

2:55 colludes with the Russians who does what

2:57 the Democrats in the United States don't

3:00 like so Trump was in collusion with the

3:03 Russians except he wasn't the Saudis are

3:05 in collusion with the Russians what are

3:07 they in collusion with the Russians well

3:09 they did agree a production cup with the

3:13 Russians but then everybody all the

3:16 other members of OPEC and by the way

3:18 just just for those who don't know

3:19 Venezuela is a member of OPEC too one of

3:22 these countries have agreed a production

3:25 cup why have they agreed a production

3:28 cup what is OPEC OPEC is an oil

3:33 producers cartel I mean that's what it

3:36 is and what is the purpose of a cartel

3:38 it is to control the price of oil oil

3:42 producers cartel wants to control the

3:45 price of oil

3:47 what have Western governments been

3:50 trying to do

3:52 throughout the summer

3:54 they've been trying to control the price

3:57 of oil they've been trying to put push

4:00 oil prices down and they've done it with

4:05 all kinds of ways they've tried to uh um

4:08 well the Saudis believe engineer

4:11 recessions in their own countries which

4:13 will bring down the price of all that's

4:15 one thing well I think the other thing

4:17 and the Saudi we've been saying this on

4:19 so many programs this idea of a price

4:22 cap on Russian oil

4:25 enforced through the oil industry

4:30 for an oil producers cartel like OPEC is

4:34 anathema it means that the price of oil

4:37 will no longer be decided in discussions

4:41 between Riyadh and uh Abu Dhabi and uh

4:47 um you know Caracas and Tehran and

4:49 indeed even Moscow the oil producers

4:51 it's going to be decided by a consumer's

4:55 cartel by the G7 countries which will be

5:00 able to control the price of oil through

5:02 using the insurance industry now there

5:05 is no conceivable way that the Saudis

5:07 would allow a thing like that to happen

5:10 so they've retaliated they've said in

5:13 this kind of situation

5:15 oil prices are already lagging Energy

5:19 prices General Edge energy crisis

5:22 they've been lagging the rising food

5:24 prices we're not going to go along with

5:27 these crazy plans that you have if

5:31 you're going to go down this route we're

5:33 going to cut production why is the uh

5:35 the Biden White House then just just not

5:40 engaging with OPEC you're absolutely

5:43 correct because see the trouble is they

5:44 can't engage they can't just engage with

5:47 OPEC if they're going to stabilize oil

5:51 prices which is something by the way

5:52 which OPEC has been telling them right

5:55 from the first day of this whole crisis

5:57 if they're going to engage with OPEC

6:00 they have to engage with Russia they

6:03 have to restore smooth functioning to

6:08 the oil Market the global oil Market

6:10 what is happening is because of this

6:13 sanctions war that the West has

6:15 described launched against Russia

6:19 they are destabilizing they are actually

6:21 Vulcanizing the global oil Market

6:24 they're just dividing it up into

6:26 segments so exactly as aramco said oil

6:32 the price of oil in Asia is now going to

6:36 be less than the price of oil in the

6:39 west because Asia is importing oil from

6:43 wherever it's produced from Russia from

6:45 the Gulf from Africa from wherever

6:49 whereas oil in the west is going to be

6:52 more expensive because the West is

6:54 refusing to import oil from the country

6:57 Wishes the second biggest producer so it

7:02 it it's it's it's illogical they're bad

7:05 the West is driving it's idiotic

7:11 go ahead you were saying it now

7:14 what makes it particularly idiotic and

7:16 what I was going to say was this

7:18 um before the sanctions were imposed I

7:22 can remember that I remember you

7:23 remember tracking all the discussions

7:24 that were taking place about the

7:26 sanctions the oil industry I'm talking

7:28 about the Western oil companies you know

7:31 Exxon Mobil or Texaco all of them

7:34 they're all consulted and they were told

7:37 don't do this thing it'd be a huge

7:40 mistake at oil markets at the moment are

7:44 very tight you mustn't impose sanctions

7:49 against Russian oil because if you do

7:52 you will create major oil shortages and

7:56 imbalances and structural problems in

7:58 the world oil market and of course you

8:01 will

8:02 annoy the soundies and enrage OPEC they

8:07 went ahead and did it anyway because

8:08 they imagined

8:10 that you know the Russian economy was

8:13 this house of cards that you know if

8:15 they blew strongly enough it would just

8:17 all come tumbling down and it hasn't and

8:21 because they you were talking about the

8:24 Biden Administration you know they have

8:26 this enormous sense of entitlement the

8:29 Democrats in the US have an enormous

8:31 sense of entitlement they assume that

8:33 Saudi Arabia's job is to increase

8:36 production to get them out of their

8:37 problems even as the Democrats Janet

8:41 Yellen come up with hair brain schemes

8:44 to

8:45 lower the oil price through using the

8:49 insurance the European insurance

8:50 industry and of course again

8:53 complete complete disregard of Saudi

8:56 interests Saudi concerns and of course

9:00 the Saudis as you absolutely right you

9:02 say say well you know we don't have any

9:05 we we you know you may have your your

9:07 sense of entitlement but we have our

9:10 national interests

9:12 from our point of view from Saudi

9:15 Arabia's point of view maintaining

9:19 stability as they would call it which in

9:21 this moment in time means a high oil

9:23 price is essential for us

9:26 and that's what we're going to do

9:30 I mean this whole Affair so

9:33 so ironic but so

9:36 so Justified you know it's almost Poetic

9:39 Justice in a way because here you have

9:40 Saudi Arabia

9:42 who everyone thought was

9:44 the uh the the the puppet poodle of the

9:48 United States its only goal everyone

9:50 would always think oh the only goal of

9:52 Saudi Arabia is to prop up the USD

9:54 that's the only reason uh for their

9:56 existence is to be a client state of the

9:58 US and they're the ones that are now

10:01 acting out in their best interest

10:03 they're acting as a 100 Sovereign Nation

10:09 and they're siding with Russia the

10:11 Eternal enemy of uh of the uh Collective

10:15 West at this point in time you can't you

10:17 can't get a a bigger enemy than Russia

10:19 for for the uh Collective West well at

10:22 the same time you have Saudi Arabia

10:26 showing what sovereignty means and and

10:28 how you go about looking after your

10:30 country's best interests MBs is doing

10:33 this well you have a bunch of poodle lap

10:36 dog

10:37 uh just empty suits in the European

10:40 Union going along with the destruction

10:42 of their own country at the behest of

10:45 Another Empty suit sitting at the White

10:48 House who doesn't know what day of the

10:50 week it is and that the whole thing is

10:52 just it's it's beyond crazy it is beyond

10:57 nuts and everyone is going along with

10:59 this in the collective West everyone is

11:02 going along with this the this is not

11:04 even the blind leading the blind this is

11:07 like this is far worse than that and

11:10 Saudi Arabia is actually showing how

11:12 sovereignty is done to all of us

11:15 Europeans supposedly Us free Sovereign

11:18 European nations yes this is upside down

11:21 world if you told me it's going to

11:24 happen 10 years ago I would have been

11:25 like what are you talking about yes I

11:28 mean what did shows what he does show is

11:30 is the extent to which the world the

11:32 world has changed because I agreed 10

11:34 years ago the Saudis would not have

11:36 dared act against the US in this kind of

11:39 fashion but they've looked at the US now

11:41 they've seen what happened what has gone

11:43 in the U.S they've seen the Biden

11:44 Administration they've met Biden they

11:47 earned as you correctly say they say you

11:49 know we've got other options we got

11:51 China we can we which is a powerful

11:53 country and it's friend we got Russia

11:55 which is a powerful country which is our

11:58 friend we've stabilized the Middle East

12:00 to a great extent so now you know at the

12:03 end of the day we are going to pursue

12:04 our own interests so we have a new uh

12:07 leader in MBS who is not you know the

12:10 decrepit figure of the you know the

12:12 previous Saudi monarchs were who just

12:15 couldn't even conceive of any kind of

12:18 situation where they didn't do America's

12:20 bidding so you know the world has

12:22 changed you have leaders in Saudi Arabia

12:26 as I was extraordinary to say this I

12:27 agree and you know I'm almost swallowing

12:29 my tongue as I say that but you do and

12:33 of course you have poodles in Europe and

12:36 you know the Europe which Once Upon a

12:38 Time was led by leaders like you know

12:40 Napoleon Lou the 14th de Gaulle in

12:44 France Winston Churchill William Pitt in

12:47 Britain well we won't Touch Too Much on

12:50 who has led Germany in the past but

12:52 anyway Europe which had you know an

12:55 outstanding extraordinary statesmanship

12:57 powerful leaders Once Upon a Time

12:59 and you know if uh Biden of all people

13:03 tells them you know when impose more

13:06 sanctions on yourself in order to annoy

13:09 booty well they'll say yes and you know

13:12 tell us more that we can do because you

13:15 know if if it means we're going to close

13:17 down even more of our factories well

13:19 that's that's fine with us

13:22 okay final question uh how does this uh

13:25 play out who's going to feel the pain

13:26 first obviously Europe is going to feel

13:28 that I imagine first when is the US

13:30 going to start feeling the pain is there

13:32 a way out yeah well this is a good

13:33 question well this is a good question I

13:36 mean I mean Europeans get to feel the

13:38 pain it's going to feel the pain almost

13:39 immediately and I mean I I can one can

13:42 sense this we're already in Britain by

13:44 the way that's now talk about uh

13:46 three-hour blackouts on particular days

13:50 you know this is now apparently being

13:53 planned and rehearsed how that would

13:55 work so you can see you could see where

13:58 we're going in Europe but it is going to

14:00 have an effect on the US because

14:02 um if oil prices are high in the west

14:05 they're going to be higher in the United

14:06 States that's not going to work well for

14:09 the Democrats presumably in the midterms

14:11 if all prices are now going to start

14:13 Rising again it's all very well for

14:15 Biden to deplete the Strategic service

14:18 he's been doing but there comes a point

14:20 where that becomes extremely dangerous

14:22 and there's a finite a finite amount in

14:25 those reserves anyway

14:27 so I think it could have a political

14:30 effect over the next couple of weeks and

14:33 there could be a a bigger knock-on

14:35 effect in the U.S later because of

14:38 course the US is very very sensitive to

14:41 oil price movements politically and

14:43 economically now I will say this there's

14:45 been talk about the U.S restricting oil

14:49 exports to try and keep the price of

14:52 Royal in the U.S low there's even some

14:56 murmurings denied by U.S officials to

14:59 Reuters that LNG exports might be

15:03 restricted as well Energy prices are

15:05 rising in the U.S too

15:08 um if that happens I mean Europe is

15:11 stuffed frankly I mean I I mean if if

15:14 they can't import oil that LNG from you

15:17 from the US well what have they got left

15:20 but I will repeat again what we've said

15:23 many times on many programs the

15:26 Democrats are focused on power in the

15:29 United States if it's important to them

15:33 to try to keep the economy in the U.S

15:36 running in a way that prevents a

15:39 complete wipeout in the midterms

15:41 or a further political crisis beyond the

15:44 midterms and if that requires

15:46 restricting oil and LNG exports they

15:51 will do it regardless of what Europe

15:54 says or thinks and of course if that

15:57 happens the Democrats are now absolutely

16:01 confident that even if somebody like

16:03 Robert Harbeck complains as he's just

16:06 done right away about astronomical costs

16:09 prices for us LNG it's not going to

16:12 change anything because the poodles of

16:15 brothels will continue to dance to the

16:18 American Tune however bad in Europe it

16:21 gets


Gravitas Plus: Ukraine war: Rising fear of a nuclear escalation

My opinion is, the United States, Russia, North Korea and other countries that poseses this kind of technology shouldn't have destroyed these weapons. South Africa got rid of nuclear weapons voluntarily, but other countries kept these destructive weapons and that where the problem is. No country should poses such weapons on earth truth be told.

Bojangles 1 day ago All nations should condemn the use of nuclear weapons by anyone for any reason. There should be a unilateral agreement to rid all nuclear arsenals from all nations. When a nuclear bomb is detonated everyone in the world loses. Take into consideration Chernobyl an area uninhabitable for 3000 years due to the nuclear disaster and that was an accident imagine what would happen if nuclear bombs started exploding on purpose. 160 :up:

david hodge 1 day ago I sure hope not. It seems like all of our governments are crazy. 180 :up:

DLH 7805 1 day ago peace is so elusive to this world, but would be so much easier on everyone…& I have to believe it’s what 99.9% of people want…let’s not let the 0.1% destroy our world - we need take a stand - collectively! 222 :up: (- Thumbs ups!)

Lee Doucette 1 day ago I SERIOUSLY can't believe that Anyone would ever think of using NUCLEAR weapons after the devastation of Japan 182

Raymond Rothstein 1 day ago (edited) I can't be the only one sitting here asking myself this one question...How did we elect leaders that have a cold war mentality and something to prove? Surely if the world wants to evolve, you would vote people that will develop their countries, not destroy them in a long lost grudge and mentality. 106

12:44 that Ukraine is going to be led into a

12:48 Minefield by NATO policy

12:52 it's going to be in a desperate pickle

12:55 he said with masterful understatement he

12:59 said Professor mircheimer not me

13:03 that Ukraine is going to be destroyed

13:08 by these NATO provocations which began

13:12 at least in 2014 with the overthrow of

13:18 the elected government in Kiev and its

13:20 replacement by a Motley collection of

13:24 Nazis fascists and extreme Ukrainian

13:27 nationalists whose First Act

13:30 was to delegitimize and illegalize

13:34 the Russian language in the eastern part

13:37 of their country where 40 percent of

13:40 their population lives

13:43 were to be made foreigners in their own

13:47 land and they have never accepted it

13:50 will never accept it and so all of you

13:55 seeking to recover as you put it the

13:59 Crimean Peninsula which has been Russian

14:02 for longer than the United States has

14:05 even existed for 500 years the Russian

14:10 Navy has been docked there

14:14 those of you seeking to recover Donetsk

14:18 or mariopal

14:20 this is moonshine do you think a

14:24 nuclear-armed superpower like Russia is

14:27 going to allow that to happen and if

14:30 there was even the remotest danger of it

14:33 happening the nuclear weapons would fly

14:35 and Trump would be right and we would be

14:39 dead

14:45 and for isium

14:48 is it worth it

14:50 I know it's not your son that's going to

14:52 be sent to fight there it's somebody

14:54 else's son

14:56 but it's your son that's going to die

14:58 when the Rockets start firing start fire

15:01 start firing they will tomorrow

15:05 so when Russia wreaks its terrible

15:07 Revenge for the attack that they warned

15:11 over and over again was a red line for

15:13 them

15:15 in the morning tomorrow

15:17 the question is what your leaders are

15:21 going to do next

15:23 so far

15:25 despite one after another losing their

15:27 majority losing their seat losing their

15:30 office

15:32 they keep on

15:33 keeping on

15:35 the question is

15:37 how long are you going to put up with it

15:41 especially when

15:43 on every other front

15:45 your governments are such miserable

15:48 failures

15:50 we've got an imposter

15:53 in 10 Downing Street in Britain if she

15:57 wandered into a local Town Hall in

16:01 cleethorpes and claimed to be a local

16:04 councilor nobody would believe her

16:07 they'd think she was a mad woman that

16:10 walked in off the street with delusions

16:13 of grandeur that she's the lady mayor of

16:16 cleethorpes that's the level of delusion

16:19 I'm talking about

16:22 of course she's in office but not in

16:25 power

16:26 it was the chancellor him that big bad

16:29 boy that done it and ran away

16:32 who decided on a budget so berserk that

16:36 even the conservative party could not

16:39 stomach it for more than 48 hours and

16:43 forced them to scrap it in the middle of

16:46 their own Party Conference in Birmingham

16:51 oh no she's saying today I'm not going

16:54 to cut people's benefits as I said for

16:57 the last six weeks I was going to do

17:00 that was him over there's idea not mine

17:05 but she is in office

17:08 and a good War awake the dog

17:12 is always attractive

17:15 for a leader in trouble is it not

17:22 right now because

17:25 she may be gone by Christmas

17:28 Joe Biden Bonkers Joe Biden

17:32 is particularly dangerous right now

17:36 because he's facing

17:38 the mother of all thrashings in the

17:40 midterm elections in just a few weeks

18:12 flying like some monstrous Dark Cloud

18:17 that will rain down acid

18:21 and nuclear winter

18:23 on all of us fasten your seat belts I

18:27 promise you tonight is going to be an

116. “And when We said to the angels: ‘Prostrate to Adam’, they (all) prostrated except Iblis; he refused.”

From the beginning of the Qur’an up to here, this is the sixth occurrence where we recite about the story of Adam and Iblis. Before this, there have also been some remarks mentioned in Suras Al-Baqarah, Al-’A‘raf, Al-Hijr, Al-’Isra’, and Al-Kahf.

The purpose of ‘covenant’, mentioned in this verse, is the command of Allah saying not to eat from that particular plant; and the objective meaning of ‘forgot’ is the lack of care in fulfilling the command of Allah (s.w.t.), otherwise, an absolute forgetfulness does not deserve warning and criticism.

The purpose of ‘constancy’, mentioned in the above, is ‘a firm will’ before the temptations of Iblis.

Imam Kazem (as) says:

“The command of prostration and then the disobedience of Satan is a kind of solace for the Prophet of Islam (S) meaning that if his command was not obeyed, he would not be worried since Iblis did not obey His command, either.”1

As it was mentioned before, the struggle of ‘right and wrong’ is not limited to the present time and past time, or to Moses (as) and Pharaoh. It has existed since the time of the creation of Adam and it continues forever.

At first, the Qur’an refers to the convent of Adam with Allah.

It says:

“And We had made covenant with Adam before, but he forgot, and We found in him no constancy.”

The purpose of this covenant cited in the abovementioned verse, is the command of Allah meaning that they would not approach the prohibited tree.

No doubt Adam did not commit any sin, but what he did was ‘leaving the better’. The course of dwelling Adam inside Heaven, in principle, was an experimental course for him to be prepared for the life of the present world and accepting the responsibility of duties.

Then, the Qur’an has pointed to another part of this story, when the verse says:

“And when We said to the angels: ‘Prostrate to Adam’, they (all) prostrated except Iblis; he refused.”

Here, by this statement, the great rank and position of Adam is made manifest, Adam whom all angels prostrated for. Moreover, the enmity of Iblis against him, from very beginning, is also manifested.

There is no doubt that prostration, in the sense of worship, is allocated to Allah (s.w.t.), and besides Allah no one and nothing can be worshipped. Thus, the prostration of angels was done before Allah (s.w.t.), but for the sake of the creation of this great creature, Adam, who was eligible of the praise of that Creator.

Surah Ta Ha – Verses 117 - 119

فَقُلْنَا يَآ ادَمُ إِنَّ هَذَا عَدُوٌّ لَكَ وَلِزَوْجِكَ فَلاَ يُخْرِجَنَّكُمَا مِنَ الْجَنَّةِ فَتَشْقَي
إِنَّ لَكَ أَلاَّ تَجُوعَ فِيهَا وَلاَ تَعْرَي
وَأَنَّكَ لاَ تَظْمَؤُا فِيهَا وَلاَ تَضْحَي

117. “Then We said: ‘O Adam! Verily this is an enemy to you and to your wife. Therefore let him not expel you both from the Garden so that you come to toil.” 118. “(For) verily you will be neither hungry therein, nor naked.” 119. “And that you shall not be thirsty therein nor suffer (the beat of) the sun.”

Here, Satan has been introduced as the enemy of Adam and Eve alone, but in some other occurrences of the Qur’an his enmity unto all humankind has been warned.

For example, Surah Al-’Isra’, No. 17, verse 53 says:

“…Verily the Satan is an open enemy to man.”

The objective meaning of the word /tašqa/ (you come to toil), mentioned here, is the toils of the material life, which is understood from the next verses, where it says that there is not any hanger or thirst or nakedness in Heaven. This statement means that if you be sent out from Heaven, you will surely be involved with toil.

However, this verse indicates that Adam (as) was warned by Allah (s.w.t.) to be careful of the enmity of Satan.

The holy verse says:

“Then We said: ‘O Adam! Verily this is an enemy to you and to your wife. Therefore let him not expel you both from the Garden so that you come to toil.”

Then Allah explains for Adam the comfort of Heaven and the toil and pain of the outside of it, as follows:

“(For) verily you will be neither hungry therein, nor naked.”

“And that you shall not be thirsty therein nor suffer (the beat of) the sun.”

In the abovementioned couple of verses, the Qur’an has pointed to four elementary and essential necessities of man, i.e. the necessity of food, water, clothing, and housing (a cover against the heat of the sun).

Surah Ta Ha – Verse 120 - 121

فَوَسْوَسَ إِلَّيْهِ الشَّيْطَانُ قَالَ يَآ ادَمُ هَلْ أَدُلُّكَ عَلَي شَجَرَةِ الْخُلْدِ وَمُلْكٍ لاَّ يَبْلَي
فَاَكَلاَ مِنْهَا فَبَدَتْ لَهُمَا سَوْءَاتُهُمَا وَطَفِقَا يَخْصِفَانِ عَلَيْهِمَا مِن وَرَقِ الْجَنَّةِ وَعَصَي ءَادَمُ رَبَّهُ فَغَوَي

120. “Then Satan whispered (evil suggestions) to him, saying: ‘O Adam! Shall I guide you to the Tree of Eternity and to a kingdom that never decays?” 121. “So they both ate of it (the forbidden tree), then their shameful parts became exposed to them, and they both took to stitching upon themselves leaves of the Garden. And (thus) Adam disobeyed his Lord, and went astray.”

Another name of Iblis is Satan, as the holy Qur’an says:

“…They all prostrated except Iblis…”


“Then Satan whispered (evil suggestions) to him…”

It was before the rank of prophethood that Adam was whispered evil suggestions to. 2

Sayyid-ibn-Tawus in a delicate statement says that, at first, Satan came to Adam with the claim of guidance and said:

“O Adam! Shall I guide you…?”,

and then he (Satan) caused them both to fall by deceit.3

Now, woe unto us! For, Satan comes to us from the beginning with the intention of deceiving us.

The Qur’an says:

“He said: ‘Then by Your Might I will surely make them live an evil life, all”.4

However, Satan had decided to be an enemy of Adam, therefore he did not sit still, and, as the verse says:

“Then Satan whispered (evil suggestions) to him, saying: ‘O Adam! Shall I guide you to the Tree of Eternity and to a kingdom that never decays?”

In fact, Satan thought to what the willing of Adam was and he found that he wished an eternal life and reaching to an imperishable power. Therefore, in order to drive him to disobeying the command of Allah, he makes use of these two factors.

Finally, what should not be done was done.

The verse in this regard, and that why their heavenly clothes wholly collapsed, says:

“So they both ate of it (the forbidden tree), then their shameful parts became exposed to them…”

When Adam and Eve saw that event, they immediately made clothes for themselves out of the leaves of the trees of Heaven to cover the shameful parts of their bodies.

The verse continues saying:

“…and they both took to stitching upon themselves leaves of the Garden...”

Yes, at last, Adam disobeyed his Lord and was deprived from His reward.

The verse says:

“…And (thus) Adam disobeyed his Lord, and went astray.”

Surah Ta Ha – Verses 122 - 123

ثُمَّ اجْتَبَاهُ رَبُّهُ فَتَابَ عَلَيْهِ وَهَدَي
قَالَ اهْبِطَا مِنْهَا جَمِيعاً بَعْضُكُمْ لِبَعْضٍ عَدُوٌّ فَإِمَّا يَأْتِيَنَّكُم مِنّـِي هُدي فَمَنِ اتَّبَعَ هُدَايَ فَلاَ يَضِلُّ وَلاَ يَشْقَي

122. “Then his Lord chose him, so He turned unto him (mercifully) and guided him.” 123. “(Allah) said: ‘Get you down, both of you, all together, from it (the Garden), with enmity one to another. So if there comes to you a guidance from Me, then (be sure) whoever follows My guidance, will not lose his way nor fall into misery.”

The Arabic term /’ijtiba’/ is derived from /jibayah/ in the sense of: ‘picking out, selection, and choice’.

The Qur’anic word /taba/ means ‘a person’s penitence’ when it is accompanied with /’ila/, like /tubtu’ilayka/ (I repented to you), but if it is said with /‘ala/ it is considered the repentance and return of Allah, like what is recited in the abovementioned holy verse, which means ‘Allah (s.w.t.) returned His Grace to the servant’.

But since Adam was essentially pure and faithful, and acted along the path of Allah’s pleasure, and that this fault which encompassed him as a result of Satan’s temptation was an exceptional happening, Allah did deprive him from His Grace forever; but after this event, Allah accepted his repentance and guided him.

The verse says:

“Then his Lord chose him, so He turned unto him (mercifully) and guided him.”

Yes, the repentance of Adam was accepted, but he had performed something that his return to the early position was impossible. Therefore, Allah commanded him and Eve both to come down from Heaven on to the earth, together with Satan, while they would be enemy with each other.

The holy verse says:

“(Allah) said: ‘Get you down, both of you, all together, from it (the Garden), with enmity one to another...”

Yet, they should know that the way of prosperity and salvation is always open to them.

Then Allah says:

“…So if there comes to you a guidance from Me, then (be sure) whoever follows My guidance, will not lose his way nor fall into misery.”

Surah Ta Ha – Verses 124 - 125

وَمَنْ أَعْرَضَ عَن ذِكْرِي فإِنَّ لَهُ مَعِيشَةً ضَنكاً وَنَحْشُرُهُ يَوْمَ الْقِيَامَةِ أَعْمَي
قَالَ رَبّ‌ِ لِمَ حَشَرْتَنِي أَعْمَي وَقَدْ كُنتُ بَصِيراً

124. “And whoever turns away from My remembrance verily for him is a life straitened, and the Day of Resurrection We shall raise him blind.” 125. “He will say: ‘My Lord! Why have You raised me blind, whereas indeed I was a seeing one (in the world)?’”

The previous verse was a glad tidings to the followers of the Truth, while this verse is a warning to those who turn away from the Truth. This is because dread and encouragement might be mentioned beside each other and become fruitful.

Some Islamic literatures indicate that leaving the path of mastership of Ahlul-Bayt (as), as well as leaving the duty of Hajj, have been counted as the denotation expansion of aversion the remembrance of Allah (s.w.t.).5

The purpose of ‘straits of life’ is not lack of money and straitened circumstances, while many of the rich, because of greed, fear, and anxiety, live in hardship and straits.

And, in order to make clear the circumstance of those who neglect the command of Allah, too, the Qur’an adds:

“And whoever turns away from My remembrance verily for him is a life straitened, and the Day of Resurrection We shall raise him blind.”

In principle, the straits of life are often for the spiritual deficiencies and the absence of the soul’s nutrition. This status is for the uncertainty of man due to the future and the fear of annihilation of the existing material potentialities, and too much dependence on the material world. Therefore, he who has faith in Allah, and is hopeful to His Pure Essence, is safe from all these anxieties.

In Hereafter, such a neglectful person may ask Allah this question, as the verse says:

“He will say: ‘My Lord! Why have You raised me blind, whereas indeed I was a seeing one (in the world)?’”

Surah Ta Ha – Verses 126 - 127

قَالَ كَذَلِكَ أَتَتْكَ ءَايَاتُنَا فَنَسِيتَهَا وَكَذَلِكَ الْيَوْمَ تُنسَي
وَكَذَلِكَ نَجْزِي مَنْ أَسْرَفَ وَلَمْ يُؤْمِن بِاَيَاتِ رَبّـِهِ وَلَعَذَابُ الاَخِرَةِ أَشَدُّ وَأَبْقَي

126. “(Allah) will say: ‘Even so, Our Signs came to you, but you neglected them; in like manner you are forgotten this Day’.” 127. “And thus We recompense him who is prodigal and does not believe in the Signs of his Lord and certainly the chastisement of the Hereafter is more grievous and more lasting.”

Prayer is one of the clear expansions of the remembrance of Allah.

Allah in the Qur’an says;

“…established prayer for My remembrance”6,

and it is evident that whoever remembers Allah, He will remember him, too.

This is the promise of Allah Who says:

“…remember Me, and I will remember you”7

And, naturally, those who forget Allah, He may also leave them alone.

The verse says:

“(Allah) will say: ‘Even so, Our Signs came to you, but you neglected them; in like manner you are forgotten this Day’.”

The holy Prophet (S) said:

“He who recites the Qur’an and does not act accordingly, Allah will muster him blind. That servant may Ask Allah why he is raised blind, and then there comes a voice commanding the angels to take him into Hell”.8

Concerning the Qur’anic phrase /’atatka’ayatuna/

“Even so, Our Signs came to you”,

Imam Sadiq (as) in a tradition said:

“The Immaculate Imams are the signs of Allah and he who abandon them will be left in Fire on the Day of Hereafter”.9

However, on the Day of Resurrection, a guilty person will say:

“…My Lord! Why have you raised me blind, whereas indeed I was a seeing one (in the world)?”

In answer to him, immediately it will be said to such a guilty person:

“Even so, Our Signs came to you, but you neglected them; in like manner you are forgotten this Day”,

and your eye is blind to see the bounties of Allah and the station of His nearness.

Finally, as a conclusion, the Qur’an says:

“And thus We recompense him who is prodigal and does not believe in the Signs of his Lord and certainly the chastisement of the Hereafter is more grievous and more lasting.”

Surah Ta Ha – Verses 128 - 129

أَفَلَمْ يَهْدِ لَهُمْ كَمْ أَهْلَكْنَا قَبْلَهُم مّـِنَ الْقُرُونِ يَمْشُونَ فِي مَسَاكِنِهِمْ إِنَّ فِي ذَلِكَ لاَيَاتٍ لأُوْلِي النُّهَي
وَلَوْلاَ كَلِمَةٌ سَبَقَتْ مِن رَّبّـِكَ لَكَانَ لِزَاماً وَأَجَلٌ مُسَمًّي

128. “Does it not then guide such men (to call to mind) how many of the generations We did destroy before them, amid whose dwellings they (today) walk about? Verily there are signs in this for those (endowed) with understanding.” 129. “And had there not been a decree that went forth before from your Lord and an appointed term, (their punishment) would necessarily have come.”

The Arabic term /nuha/ is the plural form of /nuhyah/ which means something that prohibits man from doing some indecent things. In Arabic, the ‘intellect’ is called /nuhyah/ since it dissuades man from the low desires. Therefore, the true intellect, besides thinking and understanding, causes man to ward off some dangers and vices.

The Qur’anic word /qarn/ means a nation or a group of people who live in the same time. It is sometimes used for the time itself, too. The Arabic term /lizam/ means ‘a necessary and firm affair’.

And, in view of the fact that in the previous verses several matters concerning the sinners were discussed, this verse has pointed to one of the best and the most effective ways of awareness, i.e. the careful study of the history of the former generations.

It says:

“Does it not then guide such men (to call to mind) how many of the generations We did destroy before them…”

Those men are the same people who were involved with the painful punishment of Allah and, now, these people haunt their ruined houses.

In their different travels to Yemen, travelers may see the houses of the people of ‘Ad, and in their way to Syria they confront the ruined dwellings of the people of Thamud, and in their voyage to Palestine they pass by the houses of the people of Lot, which had been destroyed upside down. They usually see their trucks but they do not take an example.

Yes, in this regard the verse says:

“…amid whose dwellings they (today) walk about? Verily there are signs in this for those (endowed) with understanding.”

The matter of ‘taking an example’ from the history of the former nations is one of the subjects on which the Qur’an and Islamic traditions have emphasized very much.

A tradition narrated from the Prophet of Islam (S) indicates that the Messenger of Allah said:

“The most neglectful people is he who takes no admonition from the change of the world.”

And he does not contemplate on the turns of days and nights.

The next verse, indeed, is an answer to the question which may arise here, asking why Allah does not arrange the same thing upon this group of sinners that He arranged for the former sinners.

The holy Qur’an says:

“And had there not been a decree that went forth before from your Lord and an appointed term, (their punishment) would necessarily have come.”

This ‘Divine decree’ is an indication to the command of creation containing the freedom of human kind.

Since, if any guilty person immediately and without any respite be punished, faith and righteous deeds may become nearly constrained and compelling, and they will often be done because of fear and terror of immediate punishment. Thus, in this case, it will not be a means of development, which is the main goal.

Moreover, if it were judged that all wrong doers should be punished at once, there would remain no one alive on the earth.10

Therefore, there should be a respite for the sinners until they might be aware and pave the path of improvement, and all the travelers of the path of truth also find an opportunity for self-improvement.
