Governments, Terrorism and Fake News

"Government of the people, by the people, for the people, shall not perish from the world ."
Unfortunately, lately those words and goals are still not implemented and doubtless never are going to be. There are too many interests involved in establishing such a perfect government. an excessive amount of ego, prejudice, and economic, social, and lots of other and conflicting interests are involved within the basic ingredients for melding such a government. Maybe it should be like this within the name of democracy and freedom of choice; maybe the people don't deserve such a perfect government.
The major problem is generating the specified balance among all those ideals and desires. the 2 extreme possibilities are a government with an excessive amount of power and a weak, divided government that's unable to form crucial decisions. A government or a corporation with enough resources can do almost anything. Not only that, but they will also even publicly justify their actions within the name of preserving and protecting democracy. they're going to support their actions, which can be illegal, immoral, or maybe criminal within the name of justice, for the people and nation. To balance between a total society where everything is transparent, visible, and known to everybody and a closed society where certain actions and knowledge are known to few may be a very difficult task. "People do not have to understand everything," may have justification in certain cases. Polls have already proved that the mood of individuals is often easily manipulated and alter directions with time, events and publicity.
Governments can, if they want, eliminate certain groups or individuals who, in their opinion, oppose and are hostile to their policies. The elimination of a terrorist or a political opponent is as easy to realize because it is straightforward to cover from the general public. The death or disappearance of such people is explained under categories like natural causes, accidents, mental hospitalization, or death during emergency surgery.
All agencies, unofficial and official, like the CIA, MI5/6, KGB, and therefore the Mossad, were and can be doing "it" within the name of national security. the favored public reason may be: "In order to guard, preserve or maybe enforce Democracy." In certain cases those actions could be truly justified; the matter is where to line the limit. many of us have disappeared worldwide within the name of national security.
The reason of national security for not disclosing certain information or imprisoning an undesired subject is employed too often by many countries and organizations.
Governments operate mainly at three levels. While level one is that the clean and white level of activities, reserved for heads of states and highly exposed political figures, level two is that the grey area. this is often an unethical area of activity that smells bad but remains legal. Killing, eliminating, removing, and falsifying is a part of level three. Normally, "we the people" are exposed to level one and infrequently to level two, but rarely to level three.
At level three, I can mention, for instance, Gerald Bull, the Canadian engineer who developed the Babylon or "super-gun" long-range artillery for the Iraqi government. The bull was assassinated in Brussels, Belgium in March 1990.
It is quite interesting to notice the language evolution with reference to using correctness terminologies. The word-laundering is sort of fascinating. Terms like "Terrorists" or "freedom fighters," "guerrillas", "political assassination" or "removing from power" all depends on which side you ask or ask.
The USA may be a super-power with worldwide presence and intervention. generally, they're a stabilizing factor. Many Americans don't understand the importance of their support surely countries and at an equivalent time, many supported countries simply hate their presence.
To better understand the above, attempt to imagine a world without U.S. involvement. Let's assume that the U.S. isn't a super-power or they evolved from an Empire to a daily Republic interested mainly in their internal affairs.
What would the planet appear as if without U.S. intervention?
Oil is one of the main energy resources of the latest countries. Oil was one of the most reasons for wars and therefore the invasion of Kuwait by Hussein. it had been not a territorial dispute; it had been about oil. The Americans are one of the most important oil consumers, so it's obvious why the U.S. was curious about assisting Kuwait.
However, this is often not the entire picture. The U.S. involvement everywhere the planet isn't just for oil and monetary interests. most of the people believe that there are other reasons. within the era of a globalized economy, world stability is important and consistent with the Chaos theory, even a little problem within the Middle-East, for instance, can generate a sequence reaction which affects the U.S. in many areas. most of the people believe that the worldwide American intervention is additionally because they care. They care about establishing and maintaining Democracies and enabling freedom for everyone everywhere possible. Obviously there are other reasons and interests; so what are they?
China is becoming a serious player within the world arena. they're the second-largest oil consumers. The route of oil to China is secured and enabled by the U.S. Navy. China's future goal could be to be equal to the U.S. and that they are able to do it.
Without the U.S., Taiwan would cease to exist as a Democracy and should be annexed to China. Without the U.S., Japan would need to get nuclear capabilities if they wanted to stay independent. they need to have a unbroken dispute with China since 1937, and therefore the Chinese will always remember the Japanese invasion. The U.S. assisted Iran indirectly by eliminating Hussein, who had fought Iran over a border dispute for eight years. Hussein was curious about making Iraq an influential power within the Persian Gulf region. He invaded Iran not only due to the long history of border disputes but also to enlarge Iraq's oil reserves. Europe wants and wishes oil, but they're not willing to pay the complete price to urge it. They hate the American presence and can not acknowledge that without the U.S., they would not get the oil they have.
Europe's attitude toward Israel is extremely hypocritical. they need a brief memory; however, what unites Europe against Israel or the Jews is Anti-Semitism.
Since March 2003 when Recep Tayyip Erdogan became Turkey's Prime Minister, their policy toward Israel has changed. Erdogan was unhappy with Israel's reaction to Hezbollah's kidnapping of soldiers in 2006; he was critical when Israel conducted the Gaza War; he asked to examine Israel's nuclear facilities under IAEA inspection, and he has criticized Israel for its many defensive actions.
The tension between the countries has escalated following the Gaza flotilla raid.
The question is what his motives are and if he features a hidden agenda that will explain his overzealous attention to Israel. His reactions have gained Turkey's influence and sympathy among his Arab neighbors. Particularly, he may have gained certain advantages among his domestic political parties. His special collaborative attention and meetings with Syria and Iran should worry about the West and particularly Israel.
The Kurdistan Workers' Party or PKK, founded in 1978, maybe a Kurdish organization that fights against Turkey. Their goal is to determine an independent Kurdish state.
There is a claim by Germany that the Turkish military has used chemical weapons against members of the PKK.
Lebanon may be a puppet country controlled by Syria and Iran. Hezbollah or "The Party of God" may be a Shi'a Islamic organization involved in Lebanese politics, supported by Syria and Iran. Actually, they're viewed by most of the planet as a terrorist group.
Their forces are trained and arranged by the Iranian Revolutionary Guards. Their main goal is to eliminate the colonial entity in Lebanon and to determine an Islamic regime.
To achieve that, the Iranians with their supporters all are united under the hatred towards Israel and their desire to eliminate the Zionist entity from the region.
A top-secret CIA document released in April 2004 lists the various possible suspects for the assassination of Elie Hobeika, former Lebanese Forces Commander.
Possible culprits include fellow Christians, other members of the Lebanese elite, Palestinians, and Israelis.
According to a Western press agency, a previously unknown anti-Syrian group, "Lebanese for a Free and Independent Lebanon." has claimed responsibility. The claim could also be related to rightwing Maronite Christians, who bore a grudge against Hobeika because he betrayed the Lebanese Forces and therefore the Israelis by switching allegiance to the Syrians within the mid-80. Hobeika also was active in Christian infighting during Lebanon's war.
Palestinians despise Hobeika because he allegedly directed the massacre of roughly 1,000 Palestinians within the refugee camps of Sabra and Shatilla in 1992.
An Israeli commission in 1983 accused Hobeika of completing the massacre and held then-Defense Minister Ariel Sharon indirectly liable for the attack.
Many Lebanese suspect Israeli involvement because Hobeika had said he would testify against Sharon if the Belgians went forward with an attempt accusing Sharon of genocide and crimes against humanity for his role in Sabra and Shatilla.
A Belgian court next month will rule on whether a judicial investigation into Sharon's role can proceed.
President Lahoud claims Hobeika was killed to prevent him from testifying, consistent with press reports, a sentiment echoed by other officialdom.
There is no evidence of Israeli involvement within the assassination, but highlighting an Israeli connection could help the Lebanese avoid the interior friction that might arise if a Lebanese group was blamed.
Anybody who thinks that the Israel-Palestinian conflict is over territories is completely wrong.
Israelis are willing to offer back certain territories and reconcile in exchange for a bit of paper... Unfortunately, supported history, those signed agreements have a really short lifetime. within the volatile region of the Middle-East Israel will face many difficulties without U.S. support. within the 1980s Soviet military forces in Afghanistan faced a special sort of war than that they had experienced within the past. The resistance forces fighting them were the mujahedeen.
