The war against the Alawite (Shi’ite) Hashemite leader of Syria has nearly zero support in the voters trapped inside of the NATO war machine. Tribalism and the Syrian Crisis – Al-Monitor talks about the petty tribal differences that the Israelis wish to exploit and the Saudis fear and want to control. Like the Balkans before WWI, petty revolts are exploited by the Great Powers to cause a world war which is a fight over control of trade, control of natural resources and control of populations. The Great Empires split up all other rivals into tiny tribal units while expanding executive control of entire continents as we see in Africa.
Long, long ago, I gave a speech about this in NYC. I said, ‘The only hope for Africa is for some African to conquer all the tiny enclaves and tribes and unite them. Until then, the continent will be a patchwork quilt of hate and fear and exploitation and zero power for Africans.’ This statement was received with cheers back in 1981. And this is the truth: tiny countries, if they are not in some sort of solidarity with all others, are weak. The tiny country examples people throw in my face are usually appendages of great empires that pretend to be sovereign nations.
And then there is Israel: it is a sovereign nation but not ‘independent’ at all, it depends 100% on US imperial power and has taken over our foreign affairs to great destruction of our imperial powers and is quickly destroying the nation itself as bankruptcy looms due to trillions in wild war spending with little profit for the American people and zero security, nay, our security gets worse and worse as angry tribalists attack us mercilessly while we butcher them mercilessly.
Now, we have the farce of a government waving the ‘we are moral and want to save Muslims’ flag with our hands dripping with blood and our wars getting entirely out of hand as we support some of the most vicious dictators on earth, the Saudis, the Gulf Sheiks and the rulers of Egypt who are still butchering demonstrators even yesterday. Now, we have another propaganda excuse to attack Assad: his little boy wrote some ‘come and get me and kill me’ stuff online…and he is 11 years old!
The 11-year-old son of Syrian president, Bashar al-Assad, has apparently dared the United States to launch an attack, in a Facebook taunt that has been ‘liked’ by the children and grandchildren of other senior Syrian officials.
‘I just want them to attack sooo much, because I want them to make this huge mistake of beginning something that they don’t know the end of it,’ stated the post on an account said to belong to Hafez al-Assad.
Well, the US ‘diplomats’ sound just like this little boy, don’t they? And how pathetic is this? On the other hand, we have this dire news: Iraqi Shi’ite Group Threatens to Hit US Interests If Syria Attacked. Yes, more ‘terrorism’ in store for us. Great.
Kerry Becomes Chief Advocate for U.S. Attack – NYTimes.com: this odious man who the Israelis kicked out of the ‘peace talks’ (sic) and who then scooted home to talk about more wars on their behalf, bloviates about ‘proof’ (sic) that Syria is committing war crimes just like the US and Israel do with such impunity:
“We know that after a decade of conflict, the American people are tired of war — believe me, I am, too,” said Mr. Kerry, who opposed the Iraq war in his failed presidential bid in 2004. “But fatigue does not absolve us of our responsibility. Just longing for peace does not necessarily bring it about. And history would judge us all extraordinarily harshly if we turned a blind eye to a dictator’s wanton use of weapons of mass destruction against all warnings, against all common understanding of decency.”
It is, evidently, our responsibility to fight all wars with Muslims on behalf of people who hate us anyways and who arrogantly dictate our spending in DC. Congress and AIPAC want to name Israel ‘major strategic partner who gets all this money from us because we ‘need’ them so badly for our many wars there. Israeli Lobby Looks to 2008 Law To Justify Request for More US Aid because funding to Americans must be cut to the bone so the bankers can be saved and of course, not only has AIPAC not had any cuts to money sent to these traitors, they want MORE money! More and more and more and we are the debtors being forced to pay for all this one way or another and how disgusting is this?
Why are these rich Jews running AIPAC doing this? Have they no sense of history??? My family is half Jewish! I fear Naziism! For good reason! And if rich Jews think that sucking the US dry while shoving us into many wars is going to save the Jews, they are insane. This will have the opposite outcome, big time. Obama’s plan to fund pre-K will run itself out of money thanks to AIPAC and its many wars, for example.
Recently, the detailed maps of US earthquakes was eliminated because of funding from DC failed. This is LIFE AND DEATH for us all! How insane is this? What’s next, cutting weather satellites? And the answer is ‘yes.’ They will cut this, too.
Back to this insane push for war which the major media want so badly since they are almost all Zionists: Syria: Putin rubbishes chemical attack claims | World news | theguardian.com
Putin said world powers should discuss the Syrian crisis at a meeting of the leaders of the Group of 20 developed and developing nations in St Petersburg next week. “This (G20 summit) is a good platform to discuss the problem. Why not use it?”
A poll in France revealed that most French people do not want their country to take part in military action on Syria, and most do not trust the president, François Hollande to do so.
And our one sane President who are are told to hate: Jimmy Carter: Syria Strike Illegal Without U.N. Support. This is correct. The fall of the League of Nations heralded WWII and this will herald WWIII. People on the far right hate the UN and hate empires even though we know from History that if either the far right or far left take power in any major nation, they go on imperialist adventures nearly instantly. The UN is a brake on imperial invasions even though this never totally stops empires from doing as they please, of course. No one except another empire can stop an imperial invasion.
The US excuse is always, ‘We are saving people and patrolling the planet like police’ except this is done ham-fisted and brutally if the victims we are ‘saving’ are people we despise or are determined to resist our invasions. And the US hates Muslims with a passion. The Saudis don’t mind this since they hate Muslims even more. They hate their own religion and violate their own rules constantly to the hilt and sneer at everyone while pretending to be the protectors of Mecca. And this is the root of the fight going on across Muslim lands: people who are Muslims know their rulers hate Mohammed and his darn rules.
And the open bribery continues: The lavish gifts given to President Obama and Hillary Clinton from foreign dignitaries | Mail Online
Foreign leaders gave lavish gifts to a number of U.S. officials last year, including the Saudi Arabian king, who gave Hillary Clinton diamond-and-ruby-encrusted jewels worth half a million dollars.
Clinton’s gifts from King Abdullah bin Abdul Aziz – which included a necklace, bracelet, earrings and a ring – were by far the most expensive items among the hundreds of gifts given to U.S. officials in 2012.
The excuse is, ‘If we don’t accept these bribes, the people giving them out will hate us!’ Good lord. Still, the real bribery pony our representatives ride is the ‘paid speech’ horse. That three legged jade limps around the race track as we speak.
And the ‘oh dear, they are killing civilians in peaceful protest’ continues to be ignored by our leaders: Lockdown by Government Smothers Day of Planned Protest in Egypt and six are killed. The suppressed population of the Gulf States continue to turn into ‘terrorists’: Bahraini policemen wounded in car bomb but don’t fear for the evil rulers of the Gulf nations or Saudi Arabia because a Drone strike kills Yemeni al-Qaeda commander in Yemen! So they are safe as they party onwards, cynically drinking fine wines, having sex with foreign whores and cheating the poor. Our allies. Lovely.
