It goes without saying that the Iraq War, as it has been fought since the “occupation” was begun, has been a disaster. Thousands of American lives have been lost in the persuit transition the Sunni Arab regime of Iraq into a liberal mandarin democracy. In terms of American lives lost, the Iraq War has been the greatest foreign policy disaster since 9/11… if not the Vietnam War. The Iraq War, 2004 till now, is the greatest stain on George Bush’s legacy.
The Case Against George Bush
The decisions fo Chief Justice John Roberts and Associate Justice Samuel Alito, alone, make up for Bush’s errors in other places.
The goal of our time is “shrinking the gap,” saving from lawlessness that portion of humanity stuck in tribal warfare and murderous violence. An important part of thsi is shrinking the Afro-Islamic Gap, using everything from a military-industrial complex to mass humiliation to save lives and make the world a better place.
However, there is a gap in America too. Most egregiously, tens of thousands of infants are put to death every year in abortions. In April, the Supreme Court took the first steps of ending recreational infanticide within the United States.
Now, more great news: the Supreme Court has sharply limited the ability of school districts to use race as a factor in school assignments.
A Ghettoized Community
It’s impossible to talk about race in America without describing the population known as “black,” so here goes. American blacks generally form a hyrbid population, with about a 20% ingression of caucasoid genetics into an otherwise 80% negroid population. (By comparison, Tiger Woods is 25% negroid while Barack Obama is 50%. Turkish “Turks” are about 20% Turkik and 80% Anatolian/”Greek”.)
An old and regrettable policy in the United States has been to regard as “black” anyone with any negroid blood, and to then use this designation to determine public services. (A variation on this are is to regard anyone with any non-caucausoid blood as a “minority.”) Whatever the motives of the racialists who created and enforced the plan, the effect has been the same: to minimize the exposure of “blacks” to the market system and instead enforced a ghettoized economy of rents and duties on them.
There is a reason that “African Americans” (those “blacks” whose ancestors were slaves in the American South) perform poorly as a population, and it is neither their genes nor their past as slaves (they share both with their higher-performing Afro-Carribiean fellow citizens). Rather, it is the history of race-based separation that they have faced in America, from the end of reconstruction to now, rather devised (largely) by American Democrats who felt that blacks were unable to compete with whites before Brown v. Board… to (largely) American Democrats who felt that blacks were unable to compete with whites after Brown v. Board.
The Supreme Court’s decision today is a powerful blow to a racialist America, and a large step forward in the integration of all Americans into the Core.
Thank you Chief Justice Roberts, Justice Alito, Justice Kennedy,Justice Scalia, and Justice Thomas.
Thank you, President Bush.
