Update April 9th, 2016, Documentary added to playlist – 'Donald Trump: Make America Hate Again'
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 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 helped 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.
