I fell into the media trap today. I actually cared that OBL was dead or alive. In reality, when I back away, deep in my heart I sincerely feel the progression of the planet, its wars, its very turning on its axis did not depend on this single man’s existence. Yes, he murdered, he terrorized, he was the mastermind behind the attack on 9/11 and other attacks. He tried and was foiled during Bush’s administration, and he was planning more assuming he wasn’t killed years ago as one talker has said, and his death faked and used today for political expediency. As effective as he was, his riddance will change nothing. Absolutely nothing. Unlike the demise of Hitler and his regime. Unless, it’s a ramping up by his successors, his team of thugs who continue to influence the radical mindset. I think that’s more likely than business as usual. As for credit for his demise, who pulled the trigger? Who started the hunt? Other than that, big deal. Big, freakin’ stupid deal if the guy who didn’t care until it benefited him gets the credit. It’s a media circus out there which should be your first clue that it’s a show, a non-issue. It’s as exciting as a Nazi war criminal being nabbed at the age of 97.
Staged? Timed? Don’t know. Doesn’t matter. OBL is no longer the core issue in this war and he hasn’t been core for some time. His plans, agenda, power and money is in others’ hands now. His death, or maybe more accurately, the announcement of it, (he’s been reported dead nine times), did nothing unless it was a red flag waved in the face of the already angry bull that launches prophetic events. Remember, in Revelation global is bad.
The media is throwing confetti and crowning the leader, left and right alike. I posted something earlier today I titled “That’s me in the bull pen.” I stand behind my opinion and I’m still in the bull pen, but …. I forgot what so recently I’ve learned. And that is that our political parties are two teams in a stadium. One wears read, one wears blue. So do the rabid fans. There are a few newcomers who claim to be constitutional purists. We’ll see if they’re allowed to stay for the whole game let alone put their players on the field. The talk radio guys, the bloggers, the columnists are the announcers. They take sides. We listen. We ignore our instincts and we quote the announcer we agree with. The old line news cheer us on with their same story lines in classier looking wrappers. We cheer. We think we control the players because don’t we choose them?
Don’t they promise us what we want? Did not the last president promise to lower the sea levels? (He did — phffffft)
And we swallowed it. At least the blue team swallowed it.
It’s a stadium. It’s a game. Ooooo, we don’t like to hear that a team can win with or without us. But they can. And when they make their plays, it’s usually in the mud. We don’t like it when the other team scores points. We yell at them for their mistakes and tell them what to do next, we call names and accuse the other team of cheating and lying, of taking cheap shots.
All true. On the cheating, lying, mud, and cheap shots, that is. It’s a game we don’t control. So, tell me, who does?
Who owns the stadium? Who plans the plays? Who pays for the uniforms? Who trades the players? Who’s in the box seats? Who owns and rents out the windowed suites high up over the field? Who pays the announcers? Who buys the cheerleaders’ attractive little outfits?
Whoever pulls the puppet strings, gives the marching orders, it’s fewer individuals than play the game. Or cheer, or vote, or fund them with taxes.
Worse, we are not the only game. There’s an elite and they run it all.
As for Osama Bin Laden, he was not an employee of the CIA but the CIA created him, empowered him, used him for 3 decades. Today it was time to go if he wasn’t already taken out under cover long ago. They pulled the string in the White House. It’s time to give the order.
