Catching up on Gorin. Devastating.
By Julia Gorin
Every 12 years, the Year of the Rat returns. According to the Chinese calendar, 2008 is the Year of the Rat, and if one looks up what a Rat year signifies, one finds, simply, "Chaos". Indeed, this Year of the Rat has seen the Olympics hosted by China itself – further legitimized by an American president’s insistence on taking the unprecedented step of attending an out-of-country opening ceremony. The commu-fascist nature of Red China was on proud display during that ceremony, demonstrating a precision by every performer marching to the same beat to almost superhuman perfection. China’s unaborted women and girls were featured prominently (though not seven-year-old singer Yang Peiyi, because of her imperfect teeth).
As many have pointed out, the 2008 Olympics abomination we’ve witnessed — in China’s preparation for which young Chinese gymnasts were beaten in training; peoples’ homes were demolished (prison and beatings for those who requested compensation or protested); human rights activists were arrested, broadcasts and websites blocked, journalists denied access, and UK athletes initially forced to sign a gag order against making any political statements or even telling their colleagues of any mistreatment they may witness, much less emailing or blogging about it — has happened before. The year was 1936, when the Olympics were held in Nazi Germany, and the English football team was ordered to give a Nazi salute in Berlin. (This year, the American team wore communist Red out of "respect" for the host country.) A quick calculation reveals that, like 2008, 1936 was the Year of the Rat. And we know what chaos it brought on.
This Year of the Rat also happens to be an election year, one in which we witnessed the most chaotic primary season in recent election history — with no one knowing for the longest time who would be the presumptive Democratic nominee. And yet, amid the chaotic events of the Rat’s year, the U.S. presidential campaign seems comparatively the least newsworthy item. Let’s recall that the year began with still another great act of appeasement, its enormity amplified by the tininess of the territory in question. In February the U.S. and major European powers rewarded with a second state separatists who used terrorism throughout the 1980s and 90s to wrest a chunk of land from the host society it belonged to. This was the Kosovo giveaway — executed at gunpoint (Albanians threaten the West and the West threatens the Serbs)–whose predicted repercussions the world is only starting to witness on a grand scale as Russia utilizes the clear precedent in the first flare-up of many that will follow–in South Ossetia. It was not lost on the Czech Republic that its reluctant decision to recognize Kosovo "independence"–after succumbing to U.S. and EU pressure-took place on the territory of the former Sudetenland.
In another stunning historical parallel, John McCain’s statement calling on the U.S. and EU to bless the illegal land grab was prepared for a February security conference in Munich. While the campaigning Democratic candidates at the time likewise expressed support for the land grab, John McCain was on board from a time before Americans had ever heard the word Kosovo, helping to get the Kosovo Liberation Army terrorists armed by the U.S. and even pressuring Bill Clinton to send in ground troops to kill Christians on behalf of Muslims falsely claiming genocide. (Fortunately, Clinton knew better than to imperil American lives in a war that he knew was fictitious but he needed desperately.) In a cosmic coincidence, 72-year-old John McCain was himself born in the Year of the Rat — specifically 1936, the year the world bestowed the Olympics upon Hitler’s Germany — and his ascent is taking place the year the world bestowed the Olympics upon Red China, took away Kosovo from the Nazis’ bitterest enemy Serbia, and restarted the Cold War.
At an equidistant point between 1936 and 2008, Rat year 1972, the
Olympics were held in Munich, and the world watched as Jews were once
again slaughtered in Germany, this time by eight Palestinian terrorists
who killed 11 members of the Israeli teams. After a day’s break from
competitions, the IOC declared that the show must go on, and the
following month Germany released the three terrorists who remained
Today, not only is the Bush administration no longer talking about
striking Iran, but while it publicly defends Israel’s right to make its
own decision about a preventive strike against Iran’s nuclear
facilities, it privately has been telling the Jewish state to back off.
When South Ossetia blew, the administration’s precarious position was
underscored, with many voices advising that the U.S. can’t have it all,
especially since it needs Russia’s influence in Iran. As one UN
diplomat quoted by the NY Times said, "If someone went to the Russians
and said, ‘OK, Kosovo for Iran,’ we’d have a deal." But so wedded are
we to promoting expansionist Islam in the Balkans that we have
jeopardized even the Russia-assisted path with Iran, quite possibly
enabling an attack against Israel.
Reportedly at the 1972 Munich Olympics, some partying American
athletes innocently helped the Palestinian terrorists scale the wall
into the yard with the building where the Israelis were lodging. An
equally blurry-eyed America could easily, but far less innocently,
repeat the mistake. The Munich surrender that 1936 enabled got millions
of Jews, gays, Serbs, gypsies and dissidents incinerated. The Munich of
1972 repeated the Jewish part of that and just as soon forgot it. The
long-brewing Munich-style surrender of 2008 in Kosovo — and the further
appeasing of Islamic interests because of our insistence on it–may
well get the Jews nuked. The Year of the Rat is not through.
