The new, Great Chief warned the tribes gathered, that the buffalo were disappearing, that the shiny rocks used to trade for goods were being sought by all, but those who have, are hoarding them, while others go wanting ….
Even with great and growing animosity and distrust, the tribes still gathered at the great waters – their place of peaceful pow-wow; ….. it had long been a place of peace; it was no longer! Warriors wait, tomahawks ready.
The Great Chief warned that frost was appearing and the great winds were blowing early and strong, that it was a sign and their ability to travel was impacted …. that some tribes were raiding and hoarding the stronger horses …..
He also told of the great inequities in wealth and power … that the anger and distrust was growing, and how it could lead to war – that it had, many times in moons past; and that this season, is NOT a time for war ….
So Said Secretary General Ban Ki-Moon to the 192 tribes gathered at the UN in New York this year. He speaks, but few listen; earlier, from the high place, another crazy chief had already stated: “Soon shall we cast terror into the hearts of the unbelievers.” (Qur’an 3:151)
There’s no avoiding it; the war drums are already beating!
