Nobody's Opinion

Nobody Remembers, Masada–now Sinjar

Nobody Remembers

Tonight, in Iraq, people are crying out. When you watch this video, and hear this woman’s plea, you can’t help but think of mass extinctions throughout history. It seems, another mass genocide is about to occur–40,000 people are trapped on Mt. Sinjar in Iraq. ISIS, will kill them. They are in siege, and starving.

I’m sure BECAUSE of this video, Obama has come out tonight and said he’d send some air support and some food. But…that’s about it. It was enough to make me ashamed. Disgusted. Obama has caused the whole Iraq implosion, and now he wants to seem like a hero?

And yet, yesterday, President Bush AND President Obama were wining and dining the fat cat ruthless dictators of Africa at the White House.

I guess its, “Let’s just move on to the minerals in Africa.”

What’s insidious about this, is that due to Obama’s utter incompetence as a leader— the gains that our men made in Iraq mean nothing to Obama. As far as many Americans can see, like Vietnam, America has pulled out, and millions will be slaughtered. Once again, our leaders have made a mockery of our country.

This woman’s tears are heartbreaking. Too bad, we don’t see the Christians video’s isn’t it? Yes, they are being slaughtered everywhere too.

But, when nobody stops evil, history repeats itself.

Nobody Remembers that a mountain siege happened once before in history: Masada.Masada

In AD 73, the Roman general Flavius Silva marched thousands of troops to the base of the plateau and built a siege wall around it, trapping the 967 Jewish men, women, and children at the top. The Roman forces built a ramp along the western edge of the plateau and hauled equipment to the top to batter down the walls of the fortress. As the Romans were breaching the defenses, the leader of the rebels, Elazer Ben Ya’ir, persuaded his people to burn their belongings and to kill themselves rather than let the women and children be taken as slaves. When the Romans reached the top, Josephus says, they were

“met with the multitude of the slain, but could take no pleasure in the fact, though it were done to their enemies. Nor could they do other than wonder at the courage of their resolution, and at the immovable contempt of death which so great a number of them had shown, when they went through with such an action as that was.”

The only survivors were two women and five children who had hidden themselves and so lived to describe the rebels’ last acts to the Romans.

And George and Laura, and Obama and Michelle…dine at the White House— our great leaders, while another country–that they spent trillions of our money on—and men DIED to liberate…is left in ruins.

Pass the hypocrisy.
