MID-EAST MADNESS AND END GAME POSIT

by R.M. SACHERE Thursday, Apr. 11, 2002 at 12:07 AM

MASSACRE OF PALESTINIAN PEOPLE BY SHARON IS MOVING TOWARDS REGIONAL WAR - DOES THE EU, UN, USA, HAVE THE WILL, SPIRIT TO STOP ISRAEL'S ROGUE STATE TERRORISM OF APARTHIED?

CRITIQUE OF MID-EAST MADNESS AND POSIT FOR A PRAGMATIC END GAME

A CANDID VIEW OF THE FOLLY OF NATIONS AND PEOPLE GIVES A VISION

TO PUT THE MADNESS OF FIVE DECADES OF VIOLENCE INTO THE DUSTBIN

OF HISTORY

Difficult even with a will and an open mind, impossible surely

for some extreme ideologies, try to consider some admittedly

limited observations, analysis, and suggestions here below that

likely could lead to a comprehensive "end game" and follow

through to create a strong enduring basis for peace, friendship,

and security between the Israeli and Palestinian people and most

of the Arab States, as well as the world community of nations.

The reality of the exercise of power and interaction of nation

states, suggests elite group interest, ego and personal spirit,

motivates action in a complex of individual initiatives, with

representations of motives, beliefs, history, tradition, economic

and social theory, so called "values", authority, and a plethora

of slogans, myths, demonology, calls to patriotism , racial or

national identity, and other "spin", offered to different venues

to solicit acceptance, or co-op dissent

The public in general (the "street") throughout much of history

has been seduced, intimidated or otherwise convinced to accept a

compliant supporting role to the machinations and interest of the

controlling elite - royalty, aristocracy, baronial class,

oligarch, junta, theological elite, military- industrial cabal,

financial elite, and political class (however they achieve and

maintain power).

Rarely does the humanistic spirit of a Mahatma Gandhi or Nelson

Mandela survive attainment of power, though most "leaders" in

the power structure, try to project a vision of overall societal

value and "good" as they pursue their individual or elite agenda.

Now in "the information age" the beliefs, vision, understanding,

and support of "the street" (and reaction or "blowback"), as

well as interaction of other elite venues on the world stage

creates a challenge for governments usually addressed by limited

disclosure, secrecy, censorship, half truths, dissembling

rhetoric, deceit, spin, controls of the media, etc.

In this environment it's likely difficult for any leader to be

fully knowledgeable to discern reality of history, events, and

the "play of the game" , and it becomes difficult for "leaders"

to reverse course, or to know how each venue reacts to action or

spin directed to or for benefit of some other constituency.

It appears that many "leaders" come to believe the myths and spin

they create and close their minds to the realities of the world,

the changing beliefs and experiences of the people, and nations,

and reactions likely or possible to policies proposed or

underway..

As we elect to critique the policies, concepts, ideologies, the

public, and private aims, strategy and motives, knowledge, wisdom

or folly of any particular venues, a conflict of personal bias,

historical perspective and priorities of values enters the game.

With this "short" introduction now let's consider the following.
