Would you still love Barack if he pushed the nuke button?
And as a result, a city of 70 million were incinerated?
This is the size of Tehran, Iran, and in that tragic scenario, it would not be the end. No, that would be the beginning of WWIII. China and Russia would see to that, and for the first time, Americans would see mushroom clouds rising above at least one American city.
Barack Obama knows this.
He also knows we're broker than a mofo and drowning in debt, and that's pretty damn broke. This nation ain't even nigga rich, but like gang-banging hoodrats, we're rich with weapons and ammo. When that's all you've got, sometimes that's enough.
Not this time, though, and he knows that too. This, I think, is why he said that if an American city is attacked with biological or chemical weapons, we will not retaliate.
Now that was a brilliant move.
The reason is that throughout history, one strategy of war and cutthroat business is the divide and conquer philosophy.
A Perfect Example:
A & B are allies or associates because they mutually benefit from one another. A is a little stronger of the the two, and tends to dominate. However, they are also close enough to being equal in strength that they'd do great damage to one another if they were enemies.
Neither get along particularly well with C, who refuses to go be dominated by either. C also has allies or associates but these relationships are not as tight, or close, as the relationship between A & B.
B does something to undermine A, or even attacks A, but makes it look like C did it. Then A gets mad and attacks C.
A & C are fighting and using up their resources.
C's allies are in a bind, because from all appearances, C started it. Unless they have a lot to lose if C loses, they will not interfere.
B benefits by taking little or none of the risks or damages if and when A defeats C.
B will even help out on the sidelines or in the background. For this, A is grateful, and rewards B with the spoils of war from C.
In slavery, this was the house negro vs. field negro manipulation. We see this in middle school and office politics, business, and the way banana republic and puppet governments are controlled.
In war, this is called a false flag operation. Stage an 'event', point a finger, and sit back and enjoy the fireworks.
Obama's genius is that he knows who has attempted this strategy before, and who is most likely to do it again in an attempt to sucker the USA into turning Iran into a 21st century Hiroshima or Nagasaki.
There is no other reasonable explanation for his decision to publicly state we will not retaliate if attacked other than he's not willing to be party to that and getting quite that much innocent blood on his hands.
Barack knows what time it is, and that the madness certain people are screaming for will guarantee the mutually assured destruction of America, Britain, France, Israel, Russia, China, Iran, and host of other countries like India and Pakistan, Syria, Lebanon, and Venezuela, in a death fight over who controls the oil, energy, water, weapons, and which monetary currency will be used, for the rest of your lifetime.
Early next week, I'll give you the back story and tell you why despite his brilliant move, it may still fail and the US be less than a minute away from twelve on the Doomsday clock.
Until then, share your thoughts here.
