On the Brink of the Tragedy
Since March 26, neither Obama nor the South Korean
President have been able to explain what actually happened
with the flagship of the South Korean Navy, the
sophisticated submarine fighter Cheonan, which was taking
part in an exercise with the US Navy to the west of the
Korean Peninsula, near the border of the two republics,
where 46 died and tens sustained injuries.
What's embarrassing for the empire is that its ally may
learn from reliable sources that the ship was sunk by the
United States. There is no way to avoid that fact which
will follow them like a shadow.
Elsewhere in the world, the circumstances similarly apply
to much more dangerous events than those of East Asia; they
can't be helped, and there is nothing the super-powerful
empire can do to stop them.
Israel would not refrain from activating and using with
full independencethe considerable nuclear power built by
the United States in that country. To believe otherwise
would be to ignore reality.
Another very serious issue is that there is no way the
United Nations can change the course of events, and very
soon the arch-reactionaries ruling Israel will clash with
the indomitable resistance of Iran, a nation with a
population of 70 million and well known religious
traditions that will not accept the insolent threats of any
In short: Iran will not submit to the Israeli threats.
As it is only natural, the people of the world are
increasingly enjoying the great sports events, those
related to recreation and culture, and others that occupy
their limited free time in the midst of the duties that
take up a large portion of their time dedicated to daily
Shortly, the Football World Cup to be contested in South
Africa will take up all of their free hours as they follow
with growing excitement the vicissitudes of the most
popular characters.
They will follow every step taken by Maradona and remember
the spectacular goal he scored that determined Argentina's
victory in one of the classics. Again, another Argentinean
is coming up spectacularly; he is a short man but he is
very fast, he whizzes like a lightning and with his head or
legs shoots the ball at amazing speed. His last name,
Messi, of Italian descent, is already known to and repeated
by the fans.
The fans imagination goes wild with the images of the
numerous stadiums where the competitions take place. The
architects and designers have created works never dreamed
of by the public.
The governments, forced to go from one meeting to another
to discharge the obligations that the new times have placed
on their shoulders, have no time to know the mountain of
news constantly carried by radio, television and the
printed press.
Almost everything depends exclusively of the information
provided by their advisers. Some of the most powerful and
important Heads of State, who make the fundamental
decisions, customarily use the cell phones to communicate
among themselves several times a day. An increasing number
of millions of people in the world live attached to such
devices even though no one knows the effect they will have
on human health. This softens the envy we could feel for
not being able to enjoy such possibilities in our time, a
time that is rapidly moving away in very few years and
almost imperceptibly.  
Yesterday, in the midst of the turmoil, there was a report
that today the UN Security Council might vote a pending
resolution to decide on the imposition of a fourth round of
sanctions to Iran for refusing to cease the enrichment of
The irony of this situation is that if it were Israel, the
United States and its closest allies would immediately say
that Israel did not sign the Nuclear Non Proliferation
Treaty and veto the resolution.
However, if Iran is simply accused of producing up to 20%
enriched uranium, there is an immediate request to apply
economic sanctions to strangle that country; and it is
obvious that Israel would act as usual, with fascist
fanaticism, the same as the soldiers of the elite troops
dropped from helicopters before daybreak on those traveling
in the solidarity flotilla carrying food to the people
besieged in Gaza, killing several people and injuring tens
of them who were later arrested alongside the crews of the
Obviously, they will try to destroy the facilities where
Iran is enriching part of the uranium it produces. It is
also evident that Iran will not accept such inconsistent
The consequences of the US imperial imbroglios could be
catastrophic and affect every inhabitant of the planet much
more than all of the economic crises combined.
