A Death Cult Inverts the Mother


 
The mother, in pre-historic societies, represented the life force and the cycle of return.

How dare "they" (i.e., the military-industrial-media complex)  refer to a bomb -- a force of destruction and death -- as "the mother":
Helene Cooper & Mujib Mashal. (April 13, 2017). U.S. Drops ‘Mother of All Bombs’ on ISIS Caves in Afghanistan. The New York Times, https://www.nytimes.com/2017/04/13/world/asia/moab-mother-of-all-bombs-afghanistan.html?emc=edit_th_20170414&nl=todaysheadlines&nlid=32962000&_r=0
WASHINGTON — The United States dropped the “mother of all bombs” — the most powerful conventional bomb in the American arsenal — on an Islamic State cave complex in Afghanistan on Thursday, the Pentagon said, unleashing a weapon so massive that it had to be dropped from the rear of a cargo plane.

The strike was the first combat use of what is formally named the GBU-43/B Massive Ordnance Air Blast. President Trump has bestowed additional authority on the Pentagon in his first months in office, which the military has argued will help it defeat the Islamic State more speedily. Mr. Trump did not say whether he had personally approved Thursday’s mission.

A DEATH CULT truly reigns on this planet.

And the death cult is headed for a climax, the likes of which we have no way of predicting with any certainty, but the resulting denouement entailing our self-inflicted departure.

Dropping big bombs is a sign of the failures of diplomacy. It also signifies, in my opinion, a fetishization of violence and subjugation of "the mother" underpinning the death cult's theology.

    The world has habits and habits which are not easily changed. The habits are so powerful that they engage men and women in their manifestation and perpetuation. One such habit is war. Another is Easter Sunday which has been happening now for almost two thousand years--except in Egypt this year it has been cancelled due to violence on Palm Sunday. Another one is the flow of wealth from the lowly to the high ups. And I see slavery has returned to North Africa where for $200 one can purchase a slave. Fortunately the world has good habits or it would have been destroyed by now. Our world seems to represent a mid point between violence and peace. Efforts to eliminate one or the other always fail. Usually the mechanisms for change like the UN for example become corrupt. Or the EU. Journalists are not deep thinkers; and fire power does not win wars.

  2. Slavery is in america. Congress axed a fair wage bill where people are paid for their work no matter what. The republican boys can also sell your cell phone records and internet search records to highest bidder. Rebublicans in american congress just made it legal to murder hibernating bears in ak elsewhere. Purest of pure frikin evil devils
