On Sovereignty 3

Message Steve Shapiro

Within our own borders the sovereign truth, the sovereign ring of the bell, the word of God means different things than what others know of the sovereign truth outside our borders.

Each country has its sovereign truth, but all countries all nations have the right to the same thing, which is a sovereignty.

With an east side facing savages, indians, eskimos, the Russian people have been so defensive for so long that their right to fight has been celebrated by its quick, reactionary defensive act.  An admirable trait for the many who see hesitation in entertainment-media scenarios.  A constant guard and wary scions of suspicion typify the Russian in American journals.

Why, then, would it seem not a sovereign right to blast Syria for their threatening act of gas attacks on their own people as neighbors, just borders from each other on the west side from Russia.

Their sovereign right has been secrecy and ours openness, a conflict that left us at odds end until this humanitarian calling.

Who would have guessed Russia was aware of the world balance of power in threats since we never get their point of view.  We never see their openness about the powers of observation.  We don't follow their exceptional insights over other nations collateral endeavors. 

To suddenly learn they are defenders of peace and wish for a diplomatic pacification in Syria is foreign to us because we have been the ones closed to the views on rights of others seems to make us out to be the children with dirty faces.  Or did our president plan it that way?

Obama and Putin have been meeting one on one for many years.  While Obama makes the noise of a hawk over Syria, he roosts over the coop of Congress with just enough time to allow the critics of democracy to show themselves.  And lo and behold, Putin says "democratic countries have to observe the conflicts within other nations, to allow them to make their own choices.'  We didn't think there was even one other country willing to lead a campaign in favor of democracy, and here it comes from Russia, after all that we went through with them.

Who on this great earth cannot see the professor, Nobel laureate, twice-elected US President did not merely bate the truth about Syria.  Who else knows the dirt on that country's leading families?

And, Putin tells us in an opinion editorial of the many factions in Syria that would be as easily responsible for the gas attack as the leading family.

Our press calls them 'the rebels,' while there are more than five factions or parties or gangs making attacks on the Syrian government.  Russia is right on top of it.  We are far away casting stones; and that gives the critics of the United States fuel to speak out and cast the second stone, but against those who cast the first stone.

We are exceptional people, here in the United States.  We don't take the time to rule outside our borders and from those who do, who are threatened by close proximity to others more diverse with a different tone to their sovereignty than are we of the greater good.

And, now we know.  There are other exceptional peoples in the western world.
