U.S. May Be Attacked In 2009

Actually the above is more a plea than a statement. You can almost hear the neocons begging someone to hear the call and respond.  If you’ve ever talked to one or are one yourself notice how they appeal to one’s courage, misplaced or missing, or their masculinity when confronted with someone with whom they disagree; inciting one to irrational anger and outbursts to get one to a desired goal, violence or chaos.  It’s worked really well, and with all the media attention and movies which focus on violence perpetuated by Muslims, both the real and imagined, it’s quite natural some Muslims would think those are the appropriate responses to assaults on their “honor”, “dignity”, etc.  Of course if Muslims don’t respond the way neocons urge them on too, they, the neocons,  can always dust off their tried and true old Osama bin Laden extensive video collection and send it to the nearest compliant media outlet to air at the appropriate time in order to scare the masses to act in a certain manner.

What is significant is the way in which neocons are able to manipulate the reaction and response of Muslims  by pushing certain buttons, or emphasizing issues they know will get the kind of response they want to highlight.  The Danish cartoon depiction of the last Prophet is an example.  Not much has been said about the re-release of those cartoons because they didn’t elicit the type of volatile images the West has been so quick to highlight. It’s unfortunate that a group of people are so predictable and that their reaction, natural though it may seem to them (i.e.Muslims) is used against them, but this is just one of the many tactics neocons use in their fight against Islam.   Pronouncements such as the one made by Senator Lieberman should be viewed cunningly and warily by the Muslim world for the hidden messages it tries to plant and the reactions it hopes to illicit.
