When in doubt, go bold, and see what patterns emerge from your bravery.
You have to shake the fabric to see how sturdy it is, but it is the patterns that tell you the code any time or place rolls by.
I learned this as a teenager when I dared challenged the Western media on the vile coverage of the the Civil War in the former Yugoslavia.
If DC Comics’ Wonder Woman mythos is based on the Second World War, mine is based in that Civil War.
Because that was the needle that popped my bubble and jolted me awake.
And I don’t need a lasso of truth to gather facts. I am honed to find them, even if I do not want to know it.
But the civil war there proved to me that the West’s Left-wing players were as corrupt as the ones on the Right.
President Bill Clinton has the blood of Serbs on his hands, but there were too many deals to be made, and Serbs, being stubborn and recalcitrant were an easy target to demonize. They are exotic, non-Western and enigmatic.
Easy to slap a villain label on them and then bomb them back to the Stone Age for being different and unashamed for it.
But the Left in the 1990s were very, very naughty. They made all sorts of dark deals with extremists, and stayed in power for two terms because Americans roll that way with presidents.
Clinton was the exception because H. Ross Perot was a spoiler and fucked up George 41’s second-term coronation.
But Clinton reaped the benefits. The Democrats rolled the way the extremists wanted them to roll for the most part. Serbia is a strategic country. It’s ideas for a united Europe predate the European Union, for instance, and Europe reaped the rewards of that nation, even as they stomped on Serbs and stole their ideas inspired by others like Alexander the Great.
But then the Republicans took over and as they had no deals with the previous extremists who parachuted in the Yugoslavia and caused the most carnage, those extremists got angry, and September 11 was a form of punishment.
They pushed back, and had their own deals with different players, but that was very tense, and then the Democrats crawled back with Barak Obama, and smoothed things over with those irate players, doing what governments do best: do shady things and sell it as middle class friendly morality.
And the Democrats got cocky and thought they could go against the Two Terms Per President Rule, and pushed Hillary Clinton, a member of the regime who caused much pain and suffering to Serbs.
You can tell it was going to be a repeat as NATO — right out of the blue, told Serbs they had unfinished business with them and that they had to be bombed for their own good. Those who want to steal Kosovo were behaving as if it were a done deal, as other members of the Clinton clique, such as former Secretary of State Madeline Albright had very capitalist interests in those wanting to conquer a part of a foreign country, in this case, Serbia.
But then Hillary Clinton was always the fuck up, and Donald Trump wiped the floor with her face.
That meant all of the shenanigans the US Left were planning got fucked up beyond all recognition.
But Trump isn’t a Republican, either.
He is an outsider and a spoiler.
He is bold and unpredictable, and that made problems for both the Left and the Right.
Because he shook their core and proved their arrogance didn’t translate into cunning, he revealed their patterns.
And it was the same pattern in two different colours. One red and one blue.
The problem is Trump’s boldness has destroyed the plans of those in the West who wanted to go back to pillage Serbia again.
Those such as Germany’s Angela Merkel got cut off at the knees because the predictable compliance they hinged their schemes on was thrown out the window because Trump was not the factor they took into their calculations.
And now it is a Chaos Narrative.
Saudi Arabia tried to take advantage of it, but the neophyte got clumsy, and now the US is in a bind.
It is the reason why suddenly, all sorts of things about that fateful civil war are starting to come out.
Those secrets were supposed to be under lock and key.
Like how Serbia was supposed to be sacrificed because who the fuck cares about the Serbs.
We survived concentrations camps in the Second World War, you psychopathic assholes.
