Preparations For War

Preparations For War

The Spanish Civil War of 1936-39 had preceded the Nazi invasion of Poland and the outbreak of the Second World War.

In some ways, it served as a prelude to it.

The Spanish Republican side was supported by the Soviet Union, the Communist International and Mexico’s far left revolutionary government of the day.

The Spanish Nationalists were supported by Fascist Italy and Nazi Germany.

So Spain served as a backdrop for great foreign powers to conduct their proxy wars.

Far longer and bloodier than the Spanish Civil War has been the Syrian Civil War (from 2011 until the present) in which great foreign powers have likewise fought their proxy wars.

Saudi Arabia has backed Sunni Muslim militias against the Damascus led government of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad (which is supported by the government of Shiite Iran- Saudi Arabia’s arch enemy).

The U.S. supported the Kurds against the Islamist terrorist based Islamic State.

The victorious Kurds in parts of Syria now find themselves under attack by Turkish forces since the Kurds are seen as a threat to Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan’s desire to revive the Ottoman Empire with himself as Sultan.

Russia meanwhile is backing its ally Bashar al-Assad against any and all comers who would remove Assad from power.

The Lebanese Hezbollah movement (a Shiite ally of Iran) supports Assad.

Israel is now becoming involved in the Syrian conflict because it sees its arch enemy Iran as using a victorious Assad led Syria as a launching pad to attack Israel.

So the Syrian people now find themselves being used as quite literally sacrificial pawns in proxy wars fought between outside great powers.

It was upon this landscape of blood that ancient vampiress and medieval vampire now surveyed with their eyes.

  2. George F. said,

    Ancient and medieval Vampires? That’s taking it waaaay back. Yes, you can go back further than medieval…those are the powerful ones.

    • Dracul Van Helsing said,

      Yes the ancient Vampiress is the ancient Babylonian Vampiress Lilith and the medieval vampire Vlad Dracula whose identities will be named in a future chapter.

    This is a nicely written piece, good job!

    I don’t see the logic of being president of a bombsite!

    And the rest is history😉

    Darkness was here before us. A long time ago when my grandmother told us stories that were descended from generation after generation that darkness has always been there even before the TIME of light.

    I think I should write that tale here – it was a dark tale, indeed. And yet, there are lights in it as well.

    War are the man-made products for centuries. We are made to be kill or kill – survival is our theme to go forward. The world could have worsen every evil human being has got the secrets of Immortality that could have drown the Heaven and kills the gods …

    • Dracul Van Helsing said,

      Yes several Bible interpreters have said there was an interval of time between Genesis Chapter 1 v1 and Genesis Chapter 1 v2.

      Between “In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth” and “The earth was without form and void, and darkness was upon the face of the deep and the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters.”

      That the reason the earth was without form and void and darkness was upon the face of the deep was because of Lucifer’s fall after God had created the heaven and the earth.

      When in Genesis Chapter 1 v.3, God said, “Let there be light and there was light”, God was restoring the light that had been eclipsed by Lucifer’s darkness.

      The light of this age we live in came after the darkness that fell on the earth after Lucifer’s fall.

      And you’re right things could have been far worse for us if Adam and Eve had eaten from the Tree of Life (after eating from the Tree of Knowledge of Good and Evil) and then become Immortal.

      For then sin and evil would have become part of their essence as it became part of Lucifer’s essence after this immortal Archangel fell.

      And sin and evil would have become part of our essence as well for we the descendants of Adam and Eve.

      But since our first parents and our ancestors and we are mortal and can die, we as mortal beings can become washed in the blood of Christ washing us of our sins and removing evil from our essence.

      I can’t wait to read your story, Sherry. 😊

    Not only vampires, but flesh and blood ghouls, as well, are afoot in that sorrowful country.

  8. Hyperion said,

    What a mess. It reminds me of something out of Mad Magazine

    • Dracul Van Helsing said,

      Yes, if there was a geopolitical equivalent of their Spy vs. Spy cartoon strip, it would be something like the current mess in Syria 🇸🇾.

      • Hyperion said,

        We could end this but we lack the Viking heritage and Odin’s support. That, and Genghis Khan took his warrior balls with him to the grave. What’s left in the western equivalent to the Keystone Cops fumbling, bumbling, and falling down on the job.

      • Dracul Van Helsing said,

        I hope Donald Trump continues to arm the Kurds despite the gobble gobbling of that turkey 🦃 Recep Tayyip Erdogan.

        Whenever I see the Kurdish women warriors, my heart stops.

        You can tell looking at them, they are true Dragon 🐉 Sisters.

        Both astoundingly beautiful (no beheadings from Pan Goatee for them) and fierce warrioresses.

        They can kill all the scumbags there.

      • Hyperion said,

        That’s true about the Kurdish Women. They are not spared the misfortunes of war so they fight to change the outcome. Turkey is going to piss them off and we wont be able to stop them from taking Recep the Nitwit to task. He will pray Sherrielock Holmes finds him first…

      • Dracul Van Helsing said,

        Yes, it will be an absolute delight to see Recep getting his bottom tomatoed by Sherrielock Holmes. 🍅

        Someone will probably post a video of it on YouTube and call it Turkish Delight. 😂

      • Hyperion said,

        Waaa haaa haaaa! And it gets 30 million views in three days.

      • Dracul Van Helsing said,

        And Trump tweets while perspiring, “Have never said anything negative about Sherrielock Holmes. Repeat. Have never said anything negative about Sherrielock Holmes. Have severe allergy to tomatoed buns.”

      • Hyperion said,

        And there is an equilibrium settling over the nation as the Chief Excusinator’s flaming hair matches his flaming buns.

      • Dracul Van Helsing said,

        The Greek philosopher Aristotle’s Doctrine of the Golden Mean has finally been achieved in the Oval Office through cherry 🍒 tomato 🍅 redness.

      • Hyperion said,

        He said, “Whackity Whackity Whack Whack! Hit those buns, hit those buns good. “

      • Dracul Van Helsing said,

        💃🏻 🍅 🌭
