Trump is right on Syria and on foreign plots

Irrespective of what the outcome of the elections is Trump is absolutely right about Syria and on foreign plots. I don't care who wins or loses, why should I care? because I am not an American. Quoting Trump from the final presidential debate.
"And a lot of this is because of Hillary Clinton, because what's happened is, by fighting Assad, who turned out to be a lot tougher than she thought, and now she's going to say, oh, he loves Assad, she's -- he's just much tougher and much smarter than her and Obama. And everyone thought he was gone two years ago, three years ago. He -- he aligned with Russia. 
He now also aligned with Iran, who we made very powerful. We gave them $150 billion back. We give them $1.7 billion in cash. I mean, cash. Bundles of cash as big as this stage. We gave them $1.7 billion. 
Now they have -- he has aligned with Russia and with Iran. They don't want ISIS, but they have other things, because we're backing -- we're backing rebels. We don't know who the rebels are. We're giving them lots of money, lots of everything. We don't know who the rebels are. And when and if -- and it's not going to happen, because you have Russia and you have Iran now. But if they ever did overthrow Assad, you might end up with -- as bad as Assad is, and he's a bad guy, but you may very well end up with worse than Assad. 
If she did nothing, we'd be in much better shape. And this is what's caused the great migration, where she's taking in tens of thousands of Syrian refugees, who probably in many cases -- not probably, who are definitely in many cases, ISIS-aligned, and we now have them in our country, and wait until you see -- this is going to be the great Trojan horse. And wait until you see what happens in the coming years. Lots of luck, Hillary. Thanks a lot for doing a great job."

We do know who the rebels are Mr. Trump (The Battle between ISIS and Syria’s Rebel Militias | Clarion Project) and these rebels whom America is backing and providing loads of cash and weapons have exactly the same kind of ideology as ISIS. ISIS is just one of the radical Islamic groups out of many. This is where Vladimir Putin has outsmarted the people in the white house. Putin might be having his own personal goals on Syria but he treats all rebel Islamic groups in the same way without differentiating them into moderates and extremists and wants to wipe out all the radical Islamic militant groups irrespective of whether they are less moderate than ISIS or not.

“Very simple. The U.S. and the CIA should stop this illegal and counter-productive war to overthrow the Syrian government of Assad and should stay focused on fighting against who our enemy is, the Islamic extremist groups,” she said. “Because right now we’re seeing why this is counter-productive, by working towards that end, by working toward the overthrow of Assad we are not only strengthening our enemy, the Islamic extremists, who will walk in and take over all of the country Syria, right now they have about half of the country under their control, but it also puts us in that position of a potential direct head to head conflict with Russia which brings us to the brink of a potential larger conflict, a potential World War III situation.” 
“And secondly it’s counterproductive because right now U.S. arms are getting into hands of our enemy, al-Qaida, al-Nusra, these other groups, Islamic extremist groups, who are our sworn enemy,” she said. “These are the same groups who attacked us on 9/11 and who supposedly we’re trying to defeat and yet at the same time supporting them with these arms to overthrow the Syrian government.”

"She (Hillary) doesn't like Putin because Putin has outsmarted her at every step of the way. Putin has outsmarted her in Syria. He's outsmarted her every step of the way."
           - Donald Trump

Trump is bang on here and the above evidence proves it why.

My first visit to the United States of America

I am on a DevOps project right now which is about Application Release Automation. I was picked for this project because I knew Chef, a DSL written in ruby for transforming your infrastructure into code. Since I very well understood the existing ARA system of one of our client I was asked to visit their office for a knowledge transfer on Chef, based on which the new ARA system was developed for them back at the offshore.

I am in the affluent city of Allen, a county of Dallas, Texas. I have never been to abroad before in fact I had never traveled in a airplane before not even with Domestic flights since I never had to visit any far away states for any purpose.

I had to bear with an annoying guy from Ethiopia who was sitting next to me who used to say "Oh Thanks Heaven" a thousand times for every one thing or the other. He kept asking me are you an Indian orthodox or an Ethiopian orthodox. He also asked me to give the names of at least 20 Bollywood stars who have died so that he could pray for them. The guy who was sitting on the aisle seat left to me requested for a change of seat as he could not bear his annoyances and advised me to spread out from him and gave the aisle seat for me. He always ate half an hour after the Air Hostess served the food for him as he was praying to God by closing his eyes and stood still for half an hour.

I watched a few movies on my journey and one of the movies which I liked was Sleepless in Seattle. The reason why I don't watch Indian cinemas is because they will never have a unique story or a script of their own. It will always be the same theme with one hero and heroine and a villain in the middle which is gosh so boring. The reason why I watch English movies is because they will have a story to tell and not because I am attracted to blondes. 365 stories 365 days. 

The culture and the people seems to be good at Allen so far but we never know. Time to get some sleep otherwise I will be late to my office tomorrow.

Does God allow evil to exist in the world?

If God is omni-benevolent then he must not allow evil to exist in the world. How did evil came into existence in the first place? As it is said in the Gospel of Truth when God emanated 30 odd Aeons and created the Pleroma he held their perfection with in himself and kept all of them in ignorance and did not gave them the Gnosis of the Father which they all were lacking. It was at this point that ignorance entered the world, it was at this point sin entered the world, it was at this point evil entered the world. Good and Evil, Gnosis and Ignorance, Sin and Righteousness are mutually exclusive if one exist then the other disappears into non-existence.

Why did God held the perfection of the Aeons with in himself which in turn led evil to enter the world? Think about it in the other way around if God had given the perfection to the Aeons and if all the Aeons had the knowledge of the unknowable Father then Sophia wouldn't have to search for the unknowable Father, she didn't had to err in her passion to know the Father and the Father did not had to cast her non-spiritual elements which emanated in the form of Achamoth outside the Pleroma. Jesus did not had to descend from the above Pleroma to save Achamoth and Achamoth did not had to emanate the immature spiritual seeds out of happiness while seeing Jesus descend from the above Pleroma and without the immature spiritual seeds Jesus need not had to request Achamoth to bring forth the Demiurge Jehovah, the God of the Jews to create the heavens and the earth and create Adam and Eve in the image of the above Pleroma for the spiritual seeds to grow and become mature.  

As you can see we wouldn't have existed if God had given the perfection to the Aeons. All the above course of events would not have taken place if God had given the knowledge of himself to the Aeons. He deliberately held back their perfection within himself. Why did he do like that? According to Gospel of Truth God held back their perfection because he expected them to love him back and wanted the Aeons to return to him out of love to receive his gnosis in return. We often notice that if we get something very easily we don't get to realize its true value its only when we earn something out of hard work we will realize the true worth of something or someone. Even parents don't buy whatever their kids ask without making them realize the fact that life is a difficult road to drive in. In the same way God held the perfection of the Aeons with in himself in order to make us know his true value and the true worth of his gnosis otherwise if the gnosis of the Father could be easily bought for a few penny then no one would have given respect to the Holy Father.

Okay, God created this world in the hope that the beings in it would love him back and return to him but hang on a second on one hand he expects us to love him back and on the other hand he has held back our free will without allowing us to make a choice for ourselves. How does God decide whom to give gnosis and whom to keep in ignorance? Is God's grace arbitrary? By keeping us ignorant of him and there by holding back our perfection which belongs to us is he allowing evil to exist in the world? If he really wants us to love him back he could have really wiped out the evil archons of the world who is keeping humanity in ignorance and stimulate our minds to love him back.

It seems God is in a dilemma here if he gives our perfection too early there is a danger that the fruit of gnosis may rot due to our immaturity and if he delays it he will be responsible for allowing evil in the world. The advice from the Gospel of Truth is to not to take evil too seriously and not to weep for all the evil done by the archons of the world but instead we must prepare ourselves to return to the Pleroma and wait for our time to receive the gnosis of the Father.
