Ralph Peters

Day After Corporal Wave said "Educate yourself," Ret. Lieut. Col. Ralph Peters claims “Conspiracy theories are for Arabs"- Pt. 1

On Monday, July 9th, Lieutenant Colonel Ralph Peters was on the Michael Medved show to discuss the Iraq War, its implications for the Global War on Terror and his latest book "Wars of Blood and Faith." I couldn't stay quiet and just listen to them blather on, so I decided to join the conversation. In the course of my call, Peters warmly gave me one of his best racist doosies of advise: "Conspiracy theories are for Arabs." This is a man who has spoken of "the Arab genius for screwing things up" and his Cheneyac commitment to the idea that "There will be no peace. At any given moment for the rest of our lifetimes, there will be multiple conflicts in mutating forms around the globe. Violent conflict will dominate the headlines, but cultural and economic struggles will be steadier and ultimately more decisive. The de facto role of the US armed forces will be to keep the world safe for our economy and open to our cultural assault. To those ends, we will do a fair amount of killing." I should have known that he wouldn't be a 9-11 Truther.. I felt a duty, however to school him on the divide and conquer techniques catalyzing the volatile situation in Iraq and the relation of that to 7-7, 9-11 and the left-right divide in America. Don't read yet, listen!

Peters started by giving me advice:

“Never, never blame anything on a conspiracy that can be explained by incompetence.”
