The Monsters We Create

This may seem out of left field and off the upcoming topic, but after Bill Clinton had his sordid under the desk affair with Monica Whorinsky around 1997, and then bold faced lied about it to America I was crushed. I had idolized the man for years and trusted every aspect of him as a politician, not to mention deeply respected him as a man.

To make a long story a little shorter, I was absolutely disgusted with the man I had once held in such great democratic esteem, much as I am now with our current president Barack Obama. What redeemed Bill Clinton in my eyes one night in 2007 is when Wild Bill Clinton appeared on the David Letterman Show and Dave asked Clinton a simple question, “Why does Osama Bin Laden hate us?”

Clinton did the most remarkable thing when Letterman asked that basic question – He told the absolute truth!

President Clinton stated that the Iran-Contra scandal of the late 1980 s involving selling arms to Iran and then diverting the proceeds illegally to Contra rebels in Nicaragua,  spooked the shady powers that be at the time and they started to get nervous about being caught funding another “freedom fighting” group unauthorized by the United States Congress. The CIA had been secretly funding the Mujahedeen fighting the Russians in Afghanistan and at that time in our history we also wanted out of the SALT ll Treaty with Russia, in order to further President Reagan’s dream of nuclear weapons circling the Earth in satellites known as “Star Wars.”

Never wanting to bother with petty ethics issues the CIA decided to cut their losses before they got caught again. They proceeded to double cross the Afghan Mujahedeen fighting the Soviets by telling the Russians where the next secret supply drop would be delivered to the “freedom fighters.” Osama Bin Laden and the Afghan Mujahedeen were betrayed and ambushed as they came to pick up their much needed supplies. They were wiped out virtually to the last man, except for Bin Laden and his cleric /mentor Abdullah Yusuf Azzam.

In 1989 Abdullah Yusuf Azzam was assassinated with the help of the CIA to appease Israel, and also make another fast deal to further the American Republican political agenda in the Middle East.

Needless to say, that was the last straw that broke the camel’s back, (no pun intended, well maybe a little bit) from then on Osama Bin Laden was at war mentally and physically with the United States.

That brings us to Manuel Noriega, no need to rehash the whole story. Once again the CIA used a murderous South American dictator to smuggle cocaine into America,  and then in an ethically void scheme proceeded to sell South American drug  Cartel coke to black gangs in Los Angeles in order to finance the Contra rebels,  and God only knows what other dirty CIA projects under the nose of Congress.

I feel confident that people already get the gist of where I’m going with Saddam Hussein.  How we ourselves as a country gladly armed him in the years before the Iraq war, and that I can just stop here with the history lessons.

My point of which I will now address is this: How many more monsters are we as an intelligent, democratic, and a “free” society going to allow our government to manufacture?  More importantly, how many more thousands of lives will be lost and destroyed World-wide by our American government’s next horrible creation?
