Immigration: A History Lesson

There are Seven major conflicts going on in Africa right now – and the media is silent.   All involve some form of ISIS, Al-Qaeda or Boko Haram. The death toll is well over 400,000 – in Sudan alone – and the media hasn’t uttered a peep.  The war in Myanmar has been ongoing since 1948, Somali since 1991, Nigeria since 1998 and Mali since 2002.   The war in Afghanistan remains as the largest number of casualties cumulatively at over 2,000,000 and for 2018 – 36,000.  And not a peep out of the media.  Instead they focus on Trump’s Tweets and Melania’s Christmas decorations and a faded prostitute who can’t pay her bills.

In Myanmar, like Syria, the number of small fragmented opposition armies are disjointed and their affiliation a veritable guessing game, however China would appear to be the largest outside player which is likely why no one else wants to become involved.

In 1992, the UN attempted to integrate into the Somalia conflict only to run home a beleaguered failure after suffering significant casualties by 1995.  Never returning.  In 2006, Islam entered the territory and became the defacto Rebel Group in the form of Al-Shabaab, Al-Qaeda and ISIL.  The UN attempted to integrate Muslims into the government in 2009 as a means of peace, but the people revolted and war re-erupted.

Most of the wars have a similar core – Islam.

And still, the UN decries – integration as the answer.

The immigrant invasions precipitated by the Huns and other barbarians ended with the conquest of Rome and ultimately led to The Fall Of The Roman Empire sometime between 450 and 500 AD.   Mismanagement allowed the invasions.  Ultimately, The Fall ushered in The Dark Ages of chaos, death, famine and disease.

The Turkic people of Asia, Europe and North Africa were forced into migration during the rise of Islam under Muhammad between the 6thand 11thcenturies.  Chaos ensued.

In the 19thcentury over 50 million people fled the horrors of Europe and settled in the US as a result of migrant chaos.

Migration has seen the collapse of entire societies.  When migrants from Europe began to descend on the US, they came through Ellis Island where they were required to submit to a health examination, legal checks to assure they were not criminals, and a head tax.  The Immigration Act of 1891 stated that persons likely to become public charges, persons suffering from certain contagious disease, felons, persons convicted of other crimes or misdemeanors, polygamists, aliens assisted by others by payment of passage would not be admitted.  Those who did not comply with these rules were deported.

In 1870 Chinese immigrants were specifically not allowed, only white and blacks were allowed per the Naturalization Act.  In 1901 the Anarchist Exclusion Act allowed for the prohibition of an immigrant based on their political beliefs.  And in 1907 American women were prohibited from bringing foreign men nto the US as citizens based on marriage.

The Italian Mafia immigrated to the US from Sicily during the late 19th and early 20th centuries.  Settling in New York and other major cities on the east coast, they immediately banded to create controlled territories where racketeering, smuggling, fraud, money laundering, robbery, etc… were their mainstay.  They were – immigrants.

Migration caused the riff that is Islamic Pakistani’s vs. Buddhist and Hindu Indians.  It has NOT resolved.

The Bolsheviks, revolutionized under Lenin, were factioned in Switzerland and Germany while Lenin lived there, and founded the Marxist media outlet, “Forward”.  They followed him back to Russia wherein the Bloody Revolution was instituted and Russia fell to communist rule for decades.   Many if not most Bolsheviks – were immigrants.

For the media to continue to hail the fact that the US was built on immigration is censoring the entire story and virtually rewriting history.

Immigration has led to the fall of Empires since the beginning of history.  It has created massive wars, the death of millions, the destruction of homelands, and the loss of societal rule.

The UN and European governments are well aware of this fact and yet it would appear that despite history they embrace the absolute collapse of all of Europe in the coming future as cultures clash, crime spirals out of control, and the military and police are told by their governments to – stand down.  Rape is now considered a ‘cultural norm’ and dismissed.  Sharia Law is upheld.   Europe is facing a catastrophic fall parallel to The Great Fall of Rome.

And like every great historical collapse, it is not about The People – it is about a Revolution built on Communism/Socialism/Power and Evil.

Each successive US President has advocated for the same thing;  border wall, illegal stagnation, and retribution for those who attempt to circumvent US Law.  And somehow, Trump is the ‘demon’.   The reality is that Merkel, Macron and May have sold Europe to chaos.   I would venture, this is not the will of The People.  It is however, the will of the Government, and as such is being actioned.  To what gain?  TO the absolute fall of Europe as was historically The Fall Of Rome which ushered in a dark age, and the ultimate auto rule of The Vatican as Lord over Kings, Queens, and People.

It does not define the Catholic People, it defines a corrupt Vatican.   It does not define a Political People, it defines a corrupt government.  A corrupt power block.  And it is time, to take back our world.  It is time to shift the axis from the imbalance of evil and embrace – good.

Because in a universe that thrives on good and evil, sometimes, the balance skews.  Don’t give up.  It is more important than ever to fight!   Faith!  Hope!  We will Overcome!

 

Troops in Iraq and Syria? Suicide Mission.

When facing ideas on how to fight the war against ISIS in Syria and Iraq, it would be prudent to learn from the successes and failures of Afghanistan.

The war began in 2001 with the withdrawal of most troops by 2014, we have about 6300 still there. While the list of allied nations fighting numbers 58, most offered support that was necessary but rather superficial; logistal support, access to airspace, refueling hub, overflight permission, etc… The number who actually got their feet wet and their boots dirty was much fewer. At its height, the number of US ground troops in Afghanistan reached 100,000. The biggest support came from the UK with over 5000, then France, Italy and Poland. So, while we had help, it was actually quite minimal.

The US military claims that over 2300 soldiers died and another 20,000 were wounded. Two thirds of these occurred under President Obama. Over 1.2 million civilians died. And now we are sending more ground troops to Iraq and Syria. While the US claims no troops are in Iraq or Syria presently, Iraq, for one would beg to disagree. In addition, despite Ash Carter claiming we are sending troops into Iraq with full cooperation, the Iraqi government says, ‘NO WAY’. We do NOT have their permission, and without it, our troops are violating international law. The Iraqi military says they will fight US soldiers in Iraq.

But Ash Carter says the Iraqi government wants the troops. Apparently, he is not telling the truth. That is akin to a suicide mission in which our special ops are subject to assassination not just by ISIS but by the Iraqi military. So why would Carter lie?

And while Obama announced in December that he would deploy 30-50 special ops ground troops to Syria, according to the Kurds they’ve been there since October. It is unclear exactly how many troops are in Syria or Iraq at this point given they are routinely demoted to ‘advisor’ status per the media.

A number of members of Congress have demanded that the US send troops into Iraq and Syria. Interestingly, only 20% of Congress has members that have actively served in the military, 38% of the House and 57% of the Senate have law degrees and 22 members have a high school degree.

Senator Ron Johnson of Wisconsin is demanding 100,000 US troops on the ground in Syria. He has no military background whatsoever. Others, such as McCain, are known war hawks and have called for troops in Ukraine, Syria, Iraq, Iran, Pakistan, and anywhere in-between.

But what did Afghanistan teach us?

First, the rules of engagement in the Middle East are not the same. Second, the rules of engagement in the Middle East…are not the same. And third….the rules of engagement don’t exist.  We did not win the Afghan war and some believe it led to the rise of ISIS. We underestimated the ethic of our Middle East allies and were continually sold out by the highest bidder. Right now we are seeing a repeat of this with Saudi Arabia and Turkey.

IN Afghanistan, the Saudis funded the Sunni Taliban while the Pakistani’s gave them arms and supplies. Bill Clinton’s policies were considered useless and without direction. Not unlike the accusations made against Obama today in fighting the Sunni aligned ISIS. Training forces, Special ops, guerilla warfare, these tactics were all part of the insurgency against the Taliban. Twenty years later, gains were made and lost. We still have 10,000 troops in Afghanistan fighting alongside the government, despite the fact that in 2010 we lifted the sanctions against the Taliban and declared they were not terrorists… What?

What did we learn? That if the bad guys are Sunni, we need to back off because we are sending our own forces on suicide missions given the Sunni countries will be backing them militarily, including; Jordan, Saudi Arabia, Lebanon, Turkey, Albania, Pakistan, Egypt, Sudan, Nigeria, Algeria, Afghanistan, Yemen, Syria, Ukbekistan, Niger, Somalia, Mali, Libya, Kuwait, UAE, Djibouti – etc…  

The bad guys? ISIS = Sunni, al-Qaeda = Sunni, al-Nusra = Sunni, Taliban = Sunni, Boko-Haram = Sunni, Al-Shabab = Sunni, Hezbollah, Al-Badar, Harakat, etc… – Sunni.  What the heck do we think we are doing cause it sure as heck isn’t fighting the bad guys, it wasn’t during the Clinton administration and it sure as heck isn’t now?
