Why Is There No Demand that AMERICANS Destroy THEIR Nuclear Weapons Which Threaten EVERYONE?
In the days just before the World Cup began, there was Western media frenzy over a hyped up nuclear confrontation between USA and North Korea. Cosmic insanity! A tiny nation of twenty-five million has its citizens of all ages punished with cruel economic sanctions by the United Nations because it finally has a few nuclear weapons as a deterrent, after having been threatened for years with nuclear destruction. Meanwhile the United States of Americans, which once destroyed every North Korea city and town with napalm and bombs before threatening to use atomic bombs, constantly threatens to use its tens of thousands of nuclear tipped missiles in wars that could end life on Earth. There is never even a polite request for Americans to destroy their vast nuclear arsenal of apocalyptic proportions!
From Where Will Come World Wide Demand that AMERICANS Destroy THEIR Nuclear Weapons Threatening EVERYONE
Suppose before each match of the World Cup an announcement was made over the public address system to the effect that the FIFA World Soccer Federation was asking all the fans in the name of the future of soccer to ask officials of their government at all levels to demand that the United States of Americans stop threatening the future of the World Cup with nuclear war, and that FIFA had asked its former Player of the Year Award winner 'King' George Weah, who is the current elected President of Liberia and a United Nations Good Will Ambassador, to lead FIFA fans in this effort to end US threats to the future of the World Cup. If this happened, to be sure, many soccer greats, who already had been political and social activists would also lead the fans and the world public in this effort.
Revolutionary Diego Maradona, the greatest living soccer star, would draw out an awesome amount of dormant anti Yankee feelings in the world. Maradona once said on President Hugo Chavez's TV program, "I hate everything that comes from the United States. I hate it with all my strength." Fidel Castro said "Diego Maradona is a great friend and noble too." Maradona has aportrait of Fidel tattooed on his left leg and one of fellow Argentine Che Guevara on his right arm. He attended Venezuelan President Maduro's final campaign rally in Caracas, signing footballs and kicking them to the crowd. Diego is really outspoken. He told Pope Paul II to sell the Vatican's gold ceilings and help the poor.
There must be hundreds or thousands of professional soccer league players around the world, who would speak out in favor of putting an end to the frightening nuclear blackmail of Americans. Italian striker Cristiano Lucarelli is an open supporter of communism and staunch admirer of Che Guevara. Javier Zanetti is FIFA ambassador for the SOS Children's Villages project in Argentina, and declares his support for the Mexican Zapatista rebels .
Politically neutral players would tend to follow FIFA's call to rally against nuclear war planning as well, and FIFA's call to soccer fans would awaken the fans of other sports as well, and then celebrities such a movie stars, musicians and other performing artists, and so on. It is so logical a demand. Western media would try to slander the overseas public awakening as anti-American and try to put the blame on Russia and China, but everyone knows the US was first to make, use and threaten to use again nuclear bombs. CIA fed corporate entertainment-news conglomerates would fail to stop a world wide movement expecting the US to stand down its nuclear attack force and negotiate it out of existence.
In the coming multi-polar world with China leading, the shift of world economic power to the East and South will bring an end to hegemony by today's nuclear giant USA. We know not how and from where a "an informed and active public struggling for its right to survive" will arise and bring safety and sanity to humanity and planet Earth, but it will, and its not all that improbable that athletic sports stars aware of a heightened social responsibility for their roll model prestige, might well be in the forefront of inciting a public awareness of its power to successfully confront an increasingly desperate USA empire in decline.
