A famous dialogue between the brutal prison warden and a brutalized prisoner from the 1967 film, Cool Hand Luke, goes thusly:
“Captain: You gonna get used to wearing them chains after a while, Luke. Don't you never stop listening to them clinking, 'cause they gonna remind you what I been saying for your own good.
Luke: (sarcastically) I wish you'd stop being so good to me, Cap'n.
Captain: Don't you ever talk that way to me. (pause, then hitting him) NEVER! NEVER! (Luke rolls down hill; to other prisoners)
What we've got here is failure to communicate. Some men you just can't reach. So you get what we had here last week, which is the way he wants it. Well, he gets it. I don't like it any more than you men.”
The Islamist fascist created explosive situation in the Middle East, by nearly forty years of warmongering and terror sponsoring, is not all that different from the Cool Hand Luke dialogue.
The expansionist, warmongering Islamist fascists want the region to obey, and always keep in mind its ability to terrorize them, yet blames its terror on the victims.
While Islamist fascists, their minions and the usual nonsensical talking heads advocate not seeing the elephant in the room, people, the actual victims in Lebanon, Israel, Syria, Bahrain, Yemen, Afghanistan, Iraq, Saudi Arabia, United Arab Emirates,…. refuse to get used to Islamist fascists’ terror and NOT seeing the elephant in the room, they wish it stops being so good to them.
Airtight sanctions, a la against the despicable South Africa apartheid, works. U.S. lawmakers get to it.
