Ever since man has inhabited this planet he has developed language to communicate with his fellows. Groups of people split off from each other and subsequently began formulating their own languages. This split often caused other problems. When diverse groups were unable to communicate they then became unable to solve their differences. This was probably the beginning of wars in an effort to solve such differences.
man grew and developed more intelligence, he figured out ways to
communicate with other groups. This was necessary for trade as well as
just getting along. Different religions came into being. Most, but not
all, religions figured out ways to co-exist with people who didn’t share
their views. This is the issue that brings up this discussion.
believe our problem with the Middle East is a language problem. This is
what I mean. A short time ago an individual sitting on an airplane
decided to ignite a bomb in his underwear. He was not an American
citizen. He was grabbed and held for arrest. He was read his Miranda
rights, as if he had Miranda rights, and told he had the right to remain
silent. And he did. People from the Middle East said, “We don’t
understand.” There was also the moron who, also on an airplane, chose to
attempt to kill the entire planeload of people as well as anyone on the
ground by firing up a bomb in his shoe. We arrested him, called him
sir, treated him as if he were human, fed him, clothed him, and tried
him in a real court as if he was actually entitled to such treatment.
The people from the Middle East said, “We don’t understand.”
a response to these airline attacks, we instituted the TSA. They stop
85 year old ladies in wheelchairs and strip search them while allowing
twenty year old Muslim men to go through the line unencumbered. The
people from the Middle East said, “We don’t understand.”
we have the military trials in Guantanamo where seven known killers are
being tried for the massacre of thousands of innocent people. They are
treating this trial as if it were a joke. They even have a female
American lawyer who has chosen to dress in a burkha, covering her entire
body and face, so as not to offend her “client.” Some of these idiots
are making paper airplanes and mocking the families of their victims and
we are allowing it. The people of the Middle East are saying, “We don’t
best guess is that this trial could last for years. Vital evidence
could be excluded from the trial so as not to prejudice the judges. In
other words this trial will be handled as if it were for real humans
with rights being granted to non-citizens and protections given where no
protections should be granted. And the Middle East says, “We don’t
think I have a solution for this language problem. I think we need to
speak to the Middle East in a language they will understand. Here is my
plan. Bring out these seven defendants, stand them up near a pickup
truck. Shoot each one of them in the back of the head with a .45 slug,
tote their bodies out to the nearest swamp and dump them where they will
be disposed of by feral hogs. Oh, and telecast the entire event to the
entire world so that all can see.
believe the response from the people of the Middle East would then be,
“Aha, now we understand. There had been a failure to communicate. Nobody
ever explained it to us before. All we ever needed was for someone to
just speak to us in our own language.” Language problem solved.
