The Story Behind The U.S. Air Strike on A Syrian Air Base

By The Prophet of Life

There’s a lot of talk about the U.S. air strike on a Syrian Government Air base in retaliation for a chemical weapons attack that killed scores of civilians in a Syrian town right now.  Some people believe President Trump did the right thing. Others thought that what he did was meddling in international affairs. Syrian rebel groups cheered the move and hoped that this was the beginning of an escalation of U.S. intervention to topple the Assad Administration. Many of others are just confused.

 

President Trump would like to have good relations with Russia. The Russian response was inflammatory but measured as was, according to many world leaders, the U.S. bombing as a response to the use of Sarin. Sarin is a deadly nerve agent that attacks the central nervous system and is lethal a high percentage of the time. President Trump said that it’s use crossed the line and that it had to be responded to.

The attack was disguised as a bombing. When it first took place, reports of civilians dying with symptoms synonymous with toxic nerve agents were almost immediate. Syria was accused to using chemical weapons once again, just as they had several years ago. Russia came to Syria’s defense and claimed that they Syrian Air Force did not drop chemical weapons on the town but hit a cash of Sarin stored by rebel forces. They cited the fact that all of Syria’s chemical weapons were destroyed as a result of a deal struck by Russia and the Obama administration to destroy all of Syria’s chemical weapons the last time the Syrian government used chemical weapons on its own civilians.

That deal, as you may recall, was made after then Secretary of State John Kerry answered a question posed by a reporter in London a week after the incident. Kerry was asked what Syria could do to avoid U.S. intervention and potential war against Syria. Kerry’s response was “They should get rid of every last chemical weapon in their arsenal”.  Within an hour Russia responded to Kerry’s outburst by stating that Syria was willing to do that.

At that point in time tensions between Russia and the U.S. were high and there was a strong possibility that the U.S. would escalate it’s military intervention in Syria. End of the world evangelists were filling the media and the internet with predictions of this being the beginning of World War 3 and the end of the world. With this as a backdrop, I sent messages to white house staffers suggesting that they get a message to Secretary Kerry to demand Syria get rid of all of their chemical weapons. Secretary Kerry made the statement a few days after my message was received.

President Trump expressed his feelings about the Obama not correctly handling the use of chemical weapons in Syria when they were in office. He didn’t want to make the same mistake. He also wants to preserve good relations with Russia. So, why did the U.S. launch the air strike?

I believe that the air strike was a calculated move to sow the world that the U.S, condemns the use of chemical weapons on civilians. I further believe that the U.S. has footage of the planes taking off from that air base, and dropping the chemical weapons on the town. I believe that President Trump had seen the video footage and told the Russian Government that he would respond but that he would not show the footage unless Russian reaction forced him to.

In this way, Russia saves face (they were the ones who claimed that the chemical weapons came from the ground and were stored by rebels and that Syria got rid of all of their chemical weapons). Russia, in response will issue some harsh toned rhetoric but take no further action. You might just see Bashir Al Assad quietly leaving office in the next six months, which could possibly be part of the deal that was struck this week. He would likely be replaced by a more moderate leader, loyal to and controllable by Russia, who will work towards negotiating a peace.

You could also see an increase in U.S. military intervention. It will all depend on the relationship between the U.S. and Russia and the ability of the world press to ferret through the rhetoric and read between the lines.

A Billion People Wake Up Like This, Do You?

Imagine yourself waking up to a beautiful day. The sun is shining, the birds are singing in the trees the air is crisp and smells sweet. Everything is perfect. The harmony of the crisp, sunshiny morning filled with the songs of birds is suddenly broken by a rumbling. It is not the rumbling of a passing truck, or an earthquake. It is the rumbling of your stomach.

The minutes creep by in painful slowness. Like honey dripping from an overturned spoon. But the honey is just a dream and the spoon is the memory that spilled the dream onto the hard concrete of reality.  Then, the pain of each endless minute is punctuated by the sound of the rumbling until it drowns out the birds, blocks pout the sun and turns the sweetness of the fresh morning scent into the stench of injustice. “Why me?” The words echo through your mind and add their voice to the soundtrack of your rumbling stomach.

Then another thought enters your mind “Must eat food!” Soon the rumbling in your stomach is joined by a pounding in your head. It pounds in rhythm to the rumbling in your stomach and the echo of why me and changes it into the wailings of a specter as what was just a thought becomes a plea and then a directive. But there is nothing to eat.

Welcome to every morning for wild animals, the homeless and the poor.

Third Health Care Worker Treating First U.S. Ebola Patient Quaranteend for Possible Ebola

By The Prophet of Life
A Health Care Worker who may have handled a specimen from Eric Thomas Duncan has been quarantined on a Carnival cruise ship in the Caribbean. Personnel on the ship, the Texas based Carnival Magic, this was done to protect other passengers from possible contamination. The woman reportedly has not shown any symptoms of the virus. This is the 19th day of the 21 day incubation period from the time of contact to the time when Ebola begins showing symptoms in those who contract it. If Ebola is actually proven to be on the ship, it might not be allowed to dock anywhere.

A Second Health care worker who treated Eric Thomas Duncan, the first Ebola Patient Diagnosed in the U,S, has tested positive. Amber Vincent contracted the virus and showed symptoms while on a trip to Cleveland. She got on the plane returning to Dallas with a temperature. Vincent was isolated within 90 minutes of reporting a high temperature at work and has been sent to Emery University Hospital in Atlanta GA by private jet. Nina Pham, the First nurse who contracted the virus from Duncan, is in good condition at the Texas Hospital where Duncan was treated and died. The hospital’s protocols for protecting its workers have been called into question. A Spokesman for Emery University Hospital in Atlanta Georgia stated that none of their health care workers contracted Ebola despite the fact that they have treated three Ebola patients, Americans who contracted the virus in Africa. Several people who came into contact with Duncan before he was admitted to the hospital are being monitored for Ebola symptoms.

Eric Thomas Duncan, The First Ebola Patient Diagnosed in the U.S. Died today. he came from Liberia. He helped take a sick woman to the hospital on September 16th and she died of Ebola a few days later. Mr. Duncan either came to the U.S. to visit relatives or to seek better treatment for Ebola than he could get in Liberia. He was treated with an experimental drug, put on dialysis and a respirator but died anyway.

The first case of Ebola has been diagnosed in a patient in the United States. He came on a plane from Liberia to visit relatives in Texas. The Plane arrived on September 20th. According to doctors, the man showed no signs of infection when arriving in the U.S. but became sick on September 24, four days after arriving.

Two days later he went to a hospital and was put in isolation pending outcome of tests. The tests proved he tested positive for the Ebola Virus. The patient remains in isolation. The man was not a health care worker or a mortician so how he came into contact with the bodily fluids of an infected person is unclear. Coming into contact with the bodily fluids of an infected person is the main way most people contract Ebola.

Officials from the CDC stated that it is almost impossible for Ebola to spread in the U.S. to the point that it has in some nations in West Africa because of America’s “Robust” health care system. The current outbreak of Ebola has claimed thousands of lives in West Africa.

The Woman Who Has not Eaten A Morsel of Food for 14 Years

By The Prophet of Life

What is more important, ones personal spiritual conscience or a Government Policy? Government policy is meant to benefit the many, personal conscience is product of the philosophy of an individual. Which is more important? At what point and under what circumstances should a person follow thier personal spiritual conscience even when it flies in the face of their government? 

One ritual in faith is self denial through fasting. One ritual of faith for those who are trying to changethings politically is going on a hunger strike. Irom Sharmiia hasn’t eaten for 14 years. She began a hunger strike to protest India’s Armed Forces Special Powers Act which suspends some rights in Northeastern India where there are problems with separatist insurgents. The law gives police and military officials powers in search and seizure, allows them to arrest without warrant and even allows them to kill suspected rebels.

In keeping with India’s laws against suicide, she has been kept imprisoned in a government hospital and force fed through a tube. Once a year, for the past 14 years she has been set free to see if she will start eating again. She never does. So back to prison she goes. Sharmila has said that she isn’t fasting to commit suicide only to protest the law until it is repealed. She has never resisted being force fed through a tube.

Is Irom Sharmila someone to be admired or is she just wasting her life? Is her hunger strike heroic or stupid? Please comment and let us know what you think her saga says about individual conscience Vs Government Policies or any other topics you believe her saga addresses.

What is Isis? Who Runs Isis? What is the Secret Behind Isis Success?

By The Prophet of Life

 Abu Bakr Al-Baghdadi Leader of Isis

Abu Bakr Al-Baghdadi
      Leader of Isis

As Western Nations meet in Paris to develop strategies to combat Isis, we take a look at the organization and its leader. Isis is a Jihadist Terrorist group led by Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi. He is a battlefield commander. A tactician who captures oil fields and banks in areas he over runs. Instead of burning the oil fields he keeps them pumping and sells the oil. Isis pulls in over a million dollars a day from oil and extortion. They have more sophisticated weapons than the soldiers of the nations they are attacking. Unlike other terror groups Isis has over 1,000 members from Western nations. They can easily slip back into any western nation without their passports being checked and carry out terrorist acts within any western nation.

Isis goal is to set up an Islamic State that encompasses Iraq, Syria and Turkey. An Isis annual report issued in June 2014 lists the # of assassinations, suicide bombings and knifings.  In July 2014 they ordered women aged 11 to 46 in Mosul, Iraq, to undergo female genital mutilation.

In August they trapped thousands of Kurdish families on a Mountaintop. As Isis lye in Siege, the Kurds pleaded for food. The International community air dropped food. As Kurds slipped away, U.S. Air Force Bombed Isis positions along the mountain. To retaliate Isis sent out a video showing the Beheading of American Journalist James Foley. They offered to spare his life in exchange for $132 Million.  They have more Western Prisoners they plan on executing.

Until the world unites to end Isis They will continue to be successful. They continue to impose,not Islamic Law but Insanity Law upon those unfortunate enough to be anywhere they control.

Is It A Crime To Be A Black Man in The United States of America?

By The Prophet of Life

Michael Brown, Ezell Ford, Trayvon Martin three names that are lightning rods for race relations in America. These three, African American young men and countless others who are not as well known, have something in common. They were shot by people with guns while they were unarmed.

These young men were all walking on public streets when they were stopped by people in authority, Brown and Ford by police officers and Martin by a Neighborhood Watch Captain. All three were accused of “scuffling” with the authority figures, literally grabbing for their guns in some cases. All three were shot to death by the person with the gun.

Why is this a familiar scenario for African American Males? Are African American Males so aggressive that when they are unarmed they will try to take a gun away from someone who has one? Is that just a convenient excuse for people trying to cover up homicides under the color of authority? Or, is there a racist perception of African American Males having superior strength and being aggressive that plays into people in authority, most of them non African American, over reacting and using deadly force?

When compared to their white counterparts, African American males in America are less likely to go to and / or finish college. They are more likely to be unemployed. They are more likely to be stopped by police, more likely to be arrested when stopped and more likely to lose when tried for any crime. They are also more likely to serve longer sentences in prison. With all of this is it any wonder that the average life expectancy for African American males in the U.S. is five years less than their white counterparts (70 vs 75 years)?

There are consistent stories in the press about African American Males resisting arrest. It seems unreal that African American Males would always resist arrest but it does seem plausible once you consider the statistics that African American Males are stopped by the police more often, convicted for crimes more often and draw prison more often and draw longer prison sentences more often than their white counterparts. It does follow logic that anyone who is targeted more often would tend to resist, knowing that once stopped they would be more likely to be arrested and once arrested, more likely to be convicted and more harshly punished.

My best friend is an attorney who also happens to be African American. He works providing the poor with free legal aid services. He commutes a lot between home and work and sometimes works long hours, getting off of work late at night. Although he has never been arrested and has always fully cooperated with the police he has been stopped a lot. We’re talking about a middle aged man driving a mini van. He believes he is stopped because he is black. Knowing him and knowing how law abiding he is and what a careful driver he is, I agree with him.

So, to answer the question posed at the beginning of this writing, Is it a crime to be an African American Male in America? The answer is technically no. African American Males, while not technically criminal are more likely to be treated like criminals and that speaks directly towards the racism of the American Justice System and the people involved in it.

The Prophet of Life

The Secret of Success

“When your mind, body and spirit are synchronized you are in tune with the ebb and flow of the universe. When you are in tune with the ebb and flow of the universe, you see possibilities that you never noticed before. When you see the new possibilities you act to create new possibilities. When you create new possibilities that are in tune with the ebb and flow of the universe, you become one with the universe.  When you are one with the universe, the universe replies with total acceptance.” —The Prophet of Life
