Women, power, and nuclear weapons

In News, Politics by Liliyan HassanLeave a Comment

President Trump gave a speech today in regards to Iran and the nuclear deal. How do I feel about all that? As a woman, I feel that men have decided to create a set of ideologies that are so far reaching to a point where time itself may end before the hell in those ideologies seize to exist. These nuclear-weapon like ideologies and these weapons-of-mass-destruction type of ideologies have reached past a billion miles to harm those who believe in them and those who believe NOT anything about them. Women have long been attacked with weapons of mass destruction all while being forced to see such attacks as an expression of love and compassion. Such ideologies are not self-sustaining since they required women to not be allowed to sustain themselves and since they required her complete and utter identity destruction for the sake of “sustaining” that which men wanted. Hence, it is no surprise that the development of weapons of war and the development of weapons of mass destruction becomes a thing necessary in order for people to “protect” themselves today. For that is what was required from a woman to have in order for her to be able to protect herself since the beginning of time–a requirement that is utterly insensible and foolish. If women had a nuclear weapon during those times and if time was just a distance upon which men aimed to harm women, then a nuclear weapon would have been necessary since it would be the only thing that would have given women a fighting chance. The evilness of what men have done against women is truly not believable which is why women have not reacted as properly as they should have. It is something that will never truly sink in. We are not born to feel as victims. We are not born to act within the terms of inhumanity. Women stand today as if we have never been harmed even once and we stand today as if we have always been treated in a humane manner—these are not due to the conduct of men towards us but these are due to the truth of where we should be standing as a testimony to how we should have been treated and how we are supposed to feel.

It is no surprise to me today to see that any nation who has found it upon itself to dispense a tiny bit more freedom towards women to be a nation who is need of a nuclear weapon in order to protect itself. Again, that is what women needed at the beginning of time if they were to have a fighting chance against men. Today, men stand as one with women in relation to what women needed to defend themselves. In that, such statements is similar to men saying: if you want to protect yourselves, dear women, you better protect all of your men. It is as if what she needs protection from is a foreign enemy. And hence, a foreign enemy it is—call it Iran or call it N. Korea; it does not matter in terms of the distortion of reality that such attacks against women have required. On the other side of this world this foreign enemy can be called Israel or the USA; again, it does not matter in terms of the distortion of reality that such attacks against women have required. Hence, I stand today in solidarity with the women in Iran and the women in Israel and the women in N Korea and the women in the USA against such nonsense that is happening in our world today that aims at further dividing women from seeing the problems that distort the truth that is within themselves. We women have long been attacked by cruel regimes and ideologies used as weapons that are capable of reaching millions of light-years aways. Indeed time and distance are not that different in terms of darkness and light. And indeed, when a light-year is a measure of distance, who here can tell me that men did not attack women with a weapon of mass destruction using their harmful ideologies?!

Which of these two statements is correct: 1. Needless to say, we do need to stop North Korea from succeeding in developing weapons that are able to reach the USA and we do need to stop Iran from acquiring the ability to create a nuclear weapon. 2. Needless to say, we do NOT need to stop North Korea from succeeding in developing weapons that are able to reach the USA and we do NOT need to stop Iran from acquiring the ability to create a nuclear weapon.

If the first statement is correct then it would be correct due to the fact that a nation that gives more freedom to women is one who is allowed to have nuclear weapons (as I said earlier). If the second statement is correct, it would be despite the truth and within the rounds of a threatening reality…a reality under which men were able to harm women unjustly already using weapon-of-mass-destruction type of ideologies. In that, we are living the product of the second statement being true through the way under which women have been treated. That is why such statements are threatening. And what we do not want is for that problem to assert itself once again to be the way under which we should continue to live. Meaning: men need a nuclear weapon in order to protect themselves from that which was easily and thoughtlessly given by them for women to live by. Aint that something?!
