There is a spiritual concept--One Mind. It says that what you see in someone else is what is inside of you. I have talked about how to stop ISIS, and many others believe that the solution to stopping ISIS is to degrade and destroy, but today, let's say that if we point our finger at others, three fingers are pointing back at us. Change must first start with us.
ISIS is considered an illegal conflict, but so is the conflict in Iraq.
The preemptive strike went against the intent of the U.N. Charter to prevent unprovoked attacks. It went against the premise that someone is presumed innocent until proven guilty, one of the principles of the U.S. legal system, because you cannot defend yourself against prejudice and ulterior motives. It breaks the Commandment that "thou shalt not bear false witness against thy neighbor," because it is a form of character defamation. You cannot defend yourself from prejudice and ulterior motives.
At the same time, to twist that around to say that you can to use prejudice and ulterior motives against your enemy with impunity means that you are going against Universal Law, and you are fighting the Universe and you can't win. The power games go on until an innocent person is crucified.
The games are bad, not the people. If this post makes you angry, it is time to look at the principles in depth, because by declaring you have to right to judge another means that you will be judged.
Saddam Hussein has been dead a long time, but the conflict in Iraq still rages on. All the nations that are part of our first year's proposals fell into crisis due to a sense of judgment.
The first row of the World Peace Marketing Strategy is for those who stand on the principles, such as a husband who has been accused of infidelity standing on the principles that he was working late. The second row is for the wife who fears for her security and support. The first row teaches the principles to the second row, that if you are responsible for your own security and support there is no need to fear the loss, and the second row is the watchdog to make sure the husband is actually doing what he says he is doing--working late. By dragging the children into the conflict, she undermines the family, and by running to the neighbors with her fears, she is undermining the simple solution and bringing in people who may attempt to undermine the entire family. The same crises occur on every level.
Saddam Hussein stood on the principles that Kuwait did not have the right to slant drill into his oil fields, but George H.W. Bush's security and support was threatened, and he supported Kuwait in the Gulf War.
Saddam Hussein protested that the U.N. sanctions had killed 500,000 Iraqi children, and that threatened the security and support of Bill Clinton, and Madelaine Albright, Secretary of State under President Clinton, stated in an televised interview when asked about the Iraqi children that yes, their foreign policy against Saddam Hussein was justified. (She later changed her mind.)
Saddam Hussein complied with U.N. sanctions and destroyed his WMD programs, but George W. Bush went ahead with the preemptive strike anyway, ignoring the advice of Hans Blix, U.N. weapons inspector.
The Iraq Inquiry--the Chilcot Report--is out and Tony Blair is facing severe scrutiny, but no one, including the media, Barack Obama and the rest of America--George Bush remains quiet-- is willing to assume responsibility for our own share in the conflict.
Donald Trump and Rudy Giuliani have declared in the news this last week that we should have taken Iraq's oil fields as spoils of war, without addressing the fact that it was an illegal war and therefore, we should be paying them. He doesn't say how he intends to get control of them.
Obviously, it is time to address what the principles are.
Let's start with Universal Law of Cause and Effect, to which everyone on the planet has been exposed. It is called by many names, but is means "what you do to another will be done to you." You can use it as a tool or a punishment. To get the life you want, you must enable others to get their life, but at the same time, if you leave someone out, you will be left out. The solution to every dilemma is to do what is in everyone's best interest. You cannot get your life by leaving out Saddam Hussein or ISIS. Doing what is in everyone's best interest is not the same thing as saying, "the world is better off without Saddam Hussein" or "we must create a coalition to degrade and destroy ISIS." That is what George Bush said about Saddam Hussein and Iraq.
The one thing that everyone on the planet wants is to be able to create his or her life without interference. This is one of our inalienable rights granted to us by our Creator. To deny another individual his or her rights, you lose your own.
By denying the Iraqi people their rights, America is in the process of losing ours. To get them back again, we must enable all the people on the planet to have the same rights we have under our Constitution. The plan for the international government, which will guarantee to every person on the planet our inalienable rights is the solution to ISIS.
