Rabid Dogs.

"Kick ass! - he quotes the president as saying - If somebody tries to stop the march to democracy, we will seek them out and kill them! We must be tougher than hell! This Vietnam stuff, this is not even close. It is a mind-set...There is a series of moments and this is one of them. Our will is being tested, but we are resolute. We have a better way. Stay strong! Stay the course! Kill them! Be confident! Prevail! We are going to wipe them out! We are not blinking!" (article here)

These are the words of your president to Sanchez, general Sanchez, another rabid dog...

Some websites called it a "shocking pep talk." But that was no pep talk and it was not shocking coming from you lot.

We've always affirmed it, you are nothing but a bunch of rabid dogs. I am not shocked at all. I can even tell you that I am 100% sure that not only your president but you too, think, say and act along the same lines as your president, politics or no politics.

What can I say ? It's your culture, your way of thinking, your cognition and perception of the world that surrounds you, your emotional state, your level of bestiality...in sum it's You.

So why are you "good people" so shocked? Oh am shocked! How shocking! How could he! How could they!...

Oh really? Heartbreaking, truly heartbreaking. So shocked eh ?

There is an American guy that corresponds with me often, he said to me today:

"I realized that we have not stopped bombing and killing you for the past 18 years...but please don't generalize about us."

My reply to him was "two buildings fell to the ground and you have not stopped talking about it and acting upon it since it first happened..."

He replied "Very few people out there know the truth"

"Bull crap" I said, "You don't want to know the truth, you refuse to see the truth, you are anti-truth, your denial is the highest form of arrogance. You say - yes but, yes but you need to understand, yes but we are not responsible, yes but you need to empathize, yes but...you justify, minimize, rationalize, excuse, and no matter what article, piece of news, fact, picture, testimony... is handed to you lot, you will always have a yes but so conveniently handy."

Him again : " Yes but, you need...."

That's it keep asking the victims to comprehend, understand, follow the logic, empathize, with their predators. Yes but...my butt!

And what do you have to say to "kill them all, wipe them all", which yes but-- will you come up with this time?

Because killed us is what you actually did. Just like that, "kill them all. " And you did. There are no "yes buts" here. This is you - the rabid dogs of the 21st century.

Rabid dogs are not made to lead the world. Rabid dogs are not made to rule anything. Rabid dogs are not made to issue verdicts, statements or engage in politics. Rabid dogs are not part of the Human Species. Rabid dogs must be in a cage, in a Zoo, and this is where you belong - in a Zoo with a huge sign reading "No trespassing -Danger."

You should be caged like the enraged animals that you are because your presence is a menace to what is left of the world. You are a public health hazard, a deformity, something gone terribly awry in the course of evolution, an abnormal remnant from the prehistoric animal kingdom. Yes, this is exactly what you are. A calamity, a catastrophe, a curse upon the human race.

I am very tempted to say "you know what the best treatment for rabid dogs is, don't you?", but I shall leave that to "time and circumstances" - they will take care of it, of you.
