A new ideology which has its roots in early modern racism is growing into a full-blown hegemonic rule within Europe and US. The simple and elementary aim of this racism which has its core among 2% of US and EU population is to uproot physically the world population which are mainly in the Third World Countries and create a free planetary space for these two percent so called superior race. They are not either jews, christians or anything like that but racists in its most deepest sense of the world. It would be a mistake to think that Afghanistan was the last or Irak would be the final targets of this group which happens to reside mainly in US and EU. The target is decrease the world population based on the ideology of the best race which happens to be a mixture of white-balck-yellow and to cut it short  a new breed of man or superman. The ideology of racism is not out in the open and one is mistaken to think that there are any legal institutions which are able to stave off the hegemony of this new ideology and new ideologists. People like Kofi Annan or alike are only window dressing and spreading the opium to the masses and ask them resgin and accept your inferiority. As many postmdern issues the very concept of Race has gone many transformations so it is not a matter of black verus white or yellow versus red. The question is what should be done and how should it be done? The least one can say is that start from home first and ...

>Dr.Maximilian, you raise some interesting points for discussion. There are a
>few things here, which I would like to point out as partial response(s):
>(1) The US today is the space of concentration of weapons of mass destruction
>(the most effective means of coercion in short, lie in the US).
>(2) The "pre-emptive war(s)" that is being waged today is being waged at least
>partly to ensure that no other space is capable of containing comparable
>concentration of weapons of mass destruction.
>(3) The point of doing so, I would argue, is to bring to the fore the question
>of scarcity of protection supply and to thereby raise protection costs. The
>monopoly in the ownership of the means of violence would ensure a continuing
>role for the US in a world order that is no longer ordered under the post-World
>War II regime of accumulation of capital and means of violence-production.
>4) Surely one of the most glaring forms of world inequality today, I argue, is
>the effect(s) of the glaring disparity in the concentration of "effective" (i.e.
>technologically sophisticated as in the ways in which Paul Virilio speaks of
>"war at the speed of light") means of coercion in the US (in particular, and in
>the spaces of the North in general) and the "rest" (the South). Another form of
>the same disparity - outside of the US - is the State apparatuses everywhere and
>their ownership of the means of coercion versus the unarmed citizens (exception
>being the US).
>(5) The effects of this global anomaly(ies) have not however prevented mass
>demonstrations and protests from declaring that despite this imbalance in the
>ownership of means of violence, contemporary states everywhere are
>illegitimate. (6) How will this crisis of legitimacy be resolved? This is the
>question of the moment, Maximilian. For it is indeed a question of the crisis
>of global democracy and global terror unleashed by US power and reactionary
>Islamic (and other) fundamentalisms.
>(7) Which states will take up arms for Iraq? I doubt if any of the Gulf states
>will do so - the interests of the ruling classes there are very closely tied up

>common resource(oil) which has high scarcity value, but which is being
>squandered for the most ignoble of uses - in the West for the maintenance of
>high levels of automobility, in the Middle East for the maintenance of high
>levels of consumption among the upper classes there. There is in short no unity
>among the Arab states other than the fundamentalist unity supplied by Islam.
>What about Europe? No European state can by itself or in combination with any
>other - like Germany and France - match the unparalleled military might of the
>US. Moreover all European states are tainted by their history of colonial
