Millions of Americans are tuning in this election cycle, to watch the politicians debate about how they will oppress us just a little bit less than the next guy. The candidates may seem to disagree on some issues, but when it comes to war, all of them are in agreement. Every candidate has promised to continue the wars that were started in the Bush and Obama eras, and they all refuse to even question the very premise of these conflicts, the “Bush Doctrine” and the “War on Terror”.After 9/11, the Bush administration put forward a philosophy of pre-emptive war that has infected American politics ever since and kept the country in a constant state of war.
The “War on Terror” was basically an excuse for the US government to go to war whenever and wherever they wanted to, and both the mainstream media and the American public have accepted this mentality ever since. When Obama became president, the anti-war left disappeared and began to support the war on terror mentality that they fought so hard against during the Bush years.In the years since the war on terror began, the US and NATO have created a total disaster in the Middle East, destroying the infrastructure of entire countries and funding opposing sides in civil wars and other conflicts. The further violence that this has created has provided the US military with even more justifications to create even more war, all in the name of “fighting terror”.During their pillage of Afghanistan and Iraq, the US government funneled billions of dollars worth of and weapons and support towards rebel groups in those and other countries, to destabilize governments in the areas that were not friendly with the US and help them install puppet dictatorships.
These plans backfired when the rebel groups turned on the US military, because after all, they are an occupying enemy. The rebel groups then began to assemble and form their own alliances, eventually becoming the terrorist group known as ISIS. Even after these rebel groups showed that they would not be able to be controlled and that they were terrorizing local areas, the US government continued to give them money and weapons, in hopes that they would destabilize the established governments, and provide an excuse for more conquest in the region.Sadly, this is an excuse that all the major presidential candidates have accepted. Even Bernie Sanders and Rand Paul, who are the favorite candidates of activists on either side of the aisle, are both supporters of the war on terror. Paul has said that he wants to declare war on ISIS, and Sanders has recently promised to continue the drone war overseas. Sanders has also consistently voted to give military funding to both Saudi Arabia and Israel and has voted to continue the wars overseas on multiple occasions. Both candidates continue to perpetuate the scare of the “War on Terror”, both have also called for the prosecution of Edward Snowden and the mainstream candidates like Trump and Clinton are even worse.
When Obama was campaigning he promised to end the wars but then just ended up lying about it. This time around the candidates aren’t even lying, they are just openly parroting the Bush doctrine and fearmongering about ISIS as a justification for war. It is not the job of the US government to police the world, and everywhere they have gone, they have made the situation worse and done whatever they could to benefit themselves and their allied corporations.
The fact that the current migrant crisis is being created and was planned a very, very long time ago, should come as no surprise to people who have taken the time to study global events independently and connect the dots, instead of taking in the propaganda infested mainstream media news as fact.
The clip below sums up the reasons behind this most recent manifestation of the Problem > Reaction > Solution paradigm quite nicely.
The Obama speech is done. Those hypnotized by his lies ponder his message. The U.S. has the "authority" to attack ISIS/ISIL. The U.S. will enter the sovereign nation of Syria without permission because apparently it doesn't need permission. The mass psychopathy is once again at an all time high.(Activistpost.com)
U.S. foreign policy is so fraudulent, predictable and repetitive that it almost renders it pathetic.
Yes, it's all been done before. In the next few weeks you will hear THE EXACT SAME RHETORIC that you heard before the war in Iraq.
Just replace Al Qaeda with ISIS/ISIL and presto!, there's your pretext for war.
It was only a few weeks ago that I posted this quote on the front page of the site:
"Beware the leader who bangs the drums of war in order to whip the citizenry into a patriotic fervor, for patriotism is indeed a double-edged sword. It emboldens the blood, just as it narrows the mind.
And when the drums of war have reached a fever pitch and the blood boils with hate and the mind has closed, the leader will have no need in seizing the rights of the citizenry. Rather, the citizenry, infused with fear and blinded by patriotism, will offer up all of their rights unto the leader and gladly so.
How do I know?
For this is what I have done. And I am Caesar."
– Julius Caesar –
The plan to invade Syria wasn't created "to resolve the ISIS crisis". It's been there for years! Here's The Plan as outlined by General Wesley Clark.
Haven't you noticed that the so called "powers that be" are going absolutely bat-shit-insane (pardon my French) and are trying to start World War III in ANY way they can. Well, now you know why. Peace is not the plan.
Don't buy into it; they are once again trying to sell you war to "spread democracy" and "protect your freedom". Protect your freedom? I don't think so. In the truly Orwellian lingo of The New World Order "freedom" is the Patriot Act and the NSA spying on every aspect of your personal life.
