Politicians and Militaries pour tea into our
coffees and make us eat their “salad”…
fact is that this is not just an aphorism-it is true story-not only
in the politics but in many other life spheres.
If we try to go through all of them we should write volumes of books.
Because of this reason- in few articles- we are
going to mention only the fatal political and military decisions, made by
In the Democratic world the army is under the command of the Parliament and
The generals do not express an opinion and do not intervene in the Government’s
work; they don’t even intervene in the
work of the Minister of Defense. And notice-the Minister of Defense can be
an actor-as Arnold Scwarzenegger, who
became Governor of California these days.
In many democratic countries the generals don’t even have right to
make political statements in the press. On the other
hand-the politicians are allowed to talk over military subjects-even if they
had been private soldiers in the army and have
no idea of strategy and generalship…
The politicians make consultations with the military reconnaissance and the
general staff of the army-it is true- but at last
they take different decisions - at the end paid by the militaries. It happens
that the people get tea with coffee instead of
milk and pay for this “salad” with their blood.
The democratic countries have a specific structure: the parliament is the
legislative power; the government and the army
are the executive power. Even if the army hasn’t got many weapons at its
disposal, the army itself becomes parliament’s
weapon; this is the way it should be.
Strange and yet true, but in the real life this situation looks like a cup
half full of coffee and half full of tea. This “salad” can be dangerous and lethal if the politicians and militaries don’t
hit the right proportion; many people would pay the price
of the disproportion with their lives.
Let’s take the first war in Iraq as an example. Bush the father stopped
the American army’s offensive before Saddam
Hussein has handed over the power. In this first unfinished war, the USA
has lost milliards of dollars and many lives were
lost. The soldiers got back to their bases…few years later they were
sent back to the enemy country, to finish what they
should have done in the previous war. The truth is that this war has been
stopped because of political reasons.
fact is that the democratic politicians don’t know when is the
right moment to stop the military attacks- ordered and
stated by them. There are two main reasons for military offensive interruption-because
of an outside pressure or because
of worsen public opinion (in USA 20.000 inquired people of 280.000.000).
The biggest politician’s fear is not to lose his
comfortable post. On the other hand the militaries clench their teeth and
submit to the political decisions.
Rivers of innocent blood flow because of this political-military scenario.
The democratic world hasn’t understood how to fight successfully
against the dark powers. The politicians should realize
that the only way is to get to unconditional surrender and not to stop
the army before getting this.
Bush defined quite clearly the main terrorist line: Iraq-Iran-Libya-Syria-North
Korea. In typical Bush style he started
breaking this line, but after the initial enthusiasm his rating stared
to go down. Europe still has reserves to America
because of its invention in Iraq. The Europeans do not care much for the
American blood shed in the fight against the
dark powers. Without the American intervention in the Second World wàr
today the world would be completely Aryan
and under “the new order”.
We must remember the history and to be careful not to do the same mistake
twice - to have coffee with tea inside, the
and general rarely speak the same language-the general has military
knowledge, the president might have been
private soldier in the army. Politics and militaries think in different
way-this is what the famous Hindu “thinker” Usho
claimed on the American television and in his books.
He wanted to persuade us to believe that the black is white and the white
is black. If the politicians and the militaries share
the Usho’s idea (In Slavonic Usho means “ear”) hundreds
of thousands of people can not only lose their ears but also
In contrast to Usho’s opinion I’m more than sure that white
is white and black is black. The politicians and militaries
should think the same way otherwise they will pour tea in the coffee.
Their nations would be forced to eat that “salad”, a
salad lavishly spiced with human blood.
Blair is right -
