To The Editor,
THE (Manchester) GUARDIAN
TO Whom & cet:
NO Analogies in history are exact, as between past and present situations.
ACTUALLY, I think now to perceive that — lurking behind the made-for-Tee Vee ‘terror war’ — there is a good argument to be made for the idea that globalising ‘neo-cons’ in a host of ways are acting like a load of WW II Tojo-Japanese!
AND, In this scenario, mahometan bomb-outrages are only a thin veneer & excuse for, you guessed it, that self-same ‘globalisation’, which is, precisely, the world-version of some sort of demented ‘co-prosperity sphere’.
AS to the ‘terror war’, this is a lot of hokum!
THAT Is objective & the fact that most politicians are opportunistic fools & nitwits as a matter of human nature does not enter in — if it were to be Peace & Love, these same hogs would make a wallow of that, too!
HISTORICALLY, Bombs have been going off every year in the great cities of the West ever since at least the end of the american Civil War. They have been flung (flang?) by a horde of doers, everything from labour-militants & anarchists to mafiosi gangsters and, now, these somewhat-invented (!) ‘islamists’.
IN Future, the real question is but one of whomever will be the next group(s) to crowd in on the fad?
THE Whole matter of bomb-outrages is a police problem merely, always has been, will be and (objectively) it is nothing more than that — whereas, ‘terror wars’ and ‘clashes of civilisation’ and so on are mainly the immature anglo-american ‘baby boom’ floundering after some sort (!) of historical significance, after the noble example of our parents’ so-called ‘greatest generation’ — a hard act to follow!
IT Is especially tough for the now-middleaged ex-beatniks & embarrassingly sexed-up & ageing, undignified (!), viagra-hounds of my self-degraded generation — and, our categorical failure as a generation is revealed as ever-more-disgusting by the day.
ASIA Is rising as the Sun sets on the West — the only consolation, if it be that, is that in time these people, too, will mishandle and throw away their historical opportunites:
IN all places & cases, the children of the victors are ever a load of swine….
