Unlit Windows Hold No Warmth

Updated on July 26, 2013

West
Your tenets smell of death
Your steps
trudging through the snow
into the dark ages
Your eyes unlit windows hold no warmth.

      I'm not of a political mind, but I think one is entitled to their thoughts on things. Voted yours up, as you seem to fill my mind with issues I may not otherwise think about, or always understand. You leave me feeling educated somehow...like Lurana (MrsBrownsParlour). I kind of like how epi put it...'there is always sheer poetic beauty in your writing...a bold message too'. : ) Have a great day, my friend!

      Wayne,

      Thanks for your insight.I am glad to hear that there is someone who agrees with me on this issue.Oil `` a marvelous treasure'' ,`` a irresistible temptation '' that draws west countries to act and wage wars. I don't think the war would have happened if Iraq didn't have the second-largest oil reserves in the world,NATO wouldnt act in Libya,France wouldnt air struck Mali (If didnt have gold mines and uranium.

      Syrians are dying and nobody cares about them.

      James I love your poetry and your friendship. I usually make it a habit to avoid anything that has to do with politics, but there is one thing you said in your comment that I totally agree with: Oil! It sickens me that the mainstream news will shout that there is a tragedy taking place in some Middle Eastern country (that has oil) based on the fact that there were a few civilians killed in the unrest, while at the same time in other third world countries, there are tens of thousands of people being slaughtered and we don't care (because they don't have oil) It is hypocrisy. I don't watch the news for this reason, and if I do catch it, I can usually tell when they are lying...it's when their lips are moving. (and that goes for all of them; conservative and liberal)

      Michael,

      The obvious conclusion from Egypt is that political Islam’s ‘concordat’ with democracy has proven a failed experiment as long as there are on the political arena those socalled liberals whose lust for power and influence holds democracy hostage as they pay conventional lip service to it, to dupe gullible masses and as long as there are still powerful civil-military bureaucracy that has obstructed the transition to democracy in order to perpetuate the status quo that sustains them.Morsi was not a tinhorn dictator or self-seeking opportunist.Before his deposal,he offered many reasonable solutions to the political crisis but the opposition refused even to listen.According to the Wall Street Jounal.The coup was prepared between Military instituitin and the liberals.

      I am biased only to the truth and justice as always.I told you before I am cosmopolitan.

      For your question.I think you got me wrong about the western intervention in the arab world.Well before, the west said they intervened in Libya to protect civilians.look what Obama says about Libya :

      Well, first of all, I do think that we’ve made enormous progress in Libya. We have saved lives as a consequence of our concerted actions…The goal is to make sure that the Libyan people can make a determination about how they want to proceed, and that they’ll be finally free of 40 years of tyranny…We have a broad range of partners under an international mandate designed to save lives and ensure that we did not have the sort of massacre that would lead us then to look back and say to ourselves, why did we stand by and do nothing

      Now about Syria:

      The U.S. is not going to intervene the Syrian situation in a military way or to invade the territory of this country, President Barack Obama believes that such actions would be wrong, he said, commenting on Republican senator John McCain’s statement that Washington does not exert efforts for the resolution of inter-Syrian conflict

      Why this double standard?I will tell you the reason in mathematic :

      Libya:Oil

      Syria:No oil,only personal assets to cover the cost of intervention!!

      James .. great hub ..but it is perplexing that one part you chastise the west for interfering in the countries that want us there and then ask for help for the Syrians.. which is it .?

      The many arab- populations are in disaray only because of tribal history as are all the different factions fighting for power such as in Egypt ..!

      here in America we have all different types of religions and races who blend into the melting pot by following laws and the system of government we have had and agree to .. although it is not perfect and it doesn't look pretty all the time .. without rules and laws ..there is Chaos, therefore what is happening in the Middle east and Africa is a sad situation .. but the U.S. has nothing to gain ( except a hope for peace and democratic process) For we are damned if we send help and damned if we don't .. ? what is the answer .. you tell me ?

      I love having these conversations with you my friend .. So I can point

      out your bias's and you can point out mine .. a great learning experience of culture exchange and friendship .. maybe they could learn from us ..!
