I'm Angel and this blog consists of history, politics and personal posts.

Gracias a la vida por enseñarme poco a poco que es mejor ser rico esperitualmente que en lo fisico.

Maybe you’re wondering why I haven’t made any posts lately on ISIS or maybe you’re not, I tend to think people are thinking things when they’re really not but thats besides the point. 

The main reason as to why I haven’t made any posts on ISIS and the whole United States coming to the rescue is because it’s a whole bunch of bullshit. A few months ago both Democrats and Republicans were supplying, arming and training Syrian rebels which included ISIS members, the United States did this in order to bring down the Assad regime in Syria. Fuck didn’t Mccain go to Syria and spoke directly to these people, taking pictures with them and demanding the United States ally themselves with these group of people in order to bring down Assad? But now Republicans and Democrats are feeding us this bullshit that ISIS is the greatest evil in the world, (don’t get me wrong the crimes being committed by ISIS are horrendous and a crime against humanity) but when I hear American politicians talking badly about ISIS I as an individual who has a memory span longer than a month knows that the United States isn’t in the business of declaring war against evil, it’s in the business of declaring war for business. 

The United States is in the business of finding whatever motive and reason to expand its imperial power, it’s in the business of allying itself with whomever and whenever in order to achieve its capitalist goals. So fuck all this we are at war with ISIS nonsense that the United States is trying to feed us, the United States is at war because this nation is an opportunistic fucker that saw ISIS as a road to expand its military presences both in Iraq and Syria. ISIS provided the United States with a just reason for it to continue its interventionist foreign policy, that upholds this economic superpower. You think destroying ISIS is going to bring an end to the conflicts currently ongoing in the Middle East?

For fucks sake ISIS is a direct result of American meddling, and yet we have this idea that more American meddling will solve the issue? You destroy ISIS through American intervention, through American imperialism and you will simply continue a cycle in which the United States declares useless wars against terrorist organizations and in the process creates 10 new terrorist organization that will become a threat to Americas national security within a decade. 

This has been the relationship between the United States and the Middle East for decades now.

I’m the type of person to go from listening to Julie London to Luciano Pavarotti. The type of person to go from Billie Holiday to Tupac Shakur. The type of person to go from the Duke of Ellington to The Smiths to David Bowie and end with Susan Boyle. 

When I tell you that Tupac Shakur taught me more about the issues of racism, police brutality, economic injustice, war on drugs and the prison industrial complex than any teacher I’ve ever had in any public school I’m being completely sincere. 

No teacher I’ve ever had took the time to explain these things to me. It was a slow process of doing research on my own, reading books, listening to artists such as Tupac Shakur and spending time by myself. 

Tupac said it perfectly, I’m not saying I’m gonna change the world, but I guarantee that I will spark the brain that will change the world.

You really showed me what’s what huh?

Sometimes I think god does exist, and if by any chance he/she they does I only ask of you that the pain of others never feels distant. 

In the end what matters the most are your actions not your intentions. The world will not judge you based on your intentions, they will judge your actions.
