I keep remarking how History is repeated. Well, in the case of our own rulers, they keep coming back to the same thing again and again which is why WWIII is inevitable. Russia and China both have played the role of ‘evil empire’ whenever our empire is rampaging about inside or next to these two major countries. Always the US is way far away from our own borders when we confront Russia and China in their front and back yards. We arm their neighbors and have these join in alliances aimed at attacking Russia and China and some of these alliances and dalliances led to major wars. The US has invaded or overthrown the governments of various nations in Eurasia, Africa, South and Central America, various islands, etc. All of these events are supposed to be due to America being menaced by someone.
We now have the new Pentagon chief telling us that Russia is endangering us all. Is Russia out to overthrow the US government via riots and using the UN to disarm the US which is the most heavily armed nation on earth? Nope. Is Russia trying to destroy the US banking system? HAHAHA. That is a task for our mighty rulers themselves! Has Putin undermined the US dollar? No, again, the 99% loss in value of the US dollar compared to before we had perpetual trade deficits and destroyed our own industrial base leaving major cities in ruins was all done by our own leaders and rulers, the very rich themselves. Putin just stood aside and laughed.
Obama is supposed to be a liberal. So why is he and his gang of Bilderberg bullies pushing us relentlessly into WWIII? He and his gang and the Bush gang too for that matter, want to resurrect the Cold War as a means of controlling the US and forcing us to spend trillions on useless weapons that the Russians and Chinese can shoot down or evade. The recent tests of their own systems scared the Pentagon. Normally, diplomats step in and curb arms races as we did in the past when we had slightly better Presidents, and voila: China and Russia gladly sign treaties doing this!
No more. The US had a brief moment as the world’s only military power and note how we used this power to launch raging wars against a billion Muslims, we tore apart Russia, we turned all of Eastern Europe into a future war zone by piling in missiles and troops into this zone of danger. Then there is Japan: the US has assisted in helping Japanese imperialists whose parents were war criminals to rearm and menace neighbors using US arms as a threat. So now South Korea and China are furious with Japan and demanding apologies for WWII which Japan defiantly refuses to give at all and this spit-fest will worsen over time with the US gaining absolutely nothing from this since Japan also refuses to trade fairly with the US so we run perpetual trade deficits with Japan while protecting Japan at our own cost.
Which we are doing with NATO in Europe: we spend money and run trade deficits at the same time. Protecting trade rivals is INSANE. It makes zero economic and political sense. None of our wars make things better for US citizens. Quite the opposite. After 9/11, instead of investigating Saudi Arabia, the US media and Bush and the DNC all blamed innocent bystanders in Afghanistan and then committed a grave war crime by blaming totally blameless Saddam for 9/11 even though it was our Saudi allies who funded and carried out this crime. Saud al-Faisal, former Saudi foreign minister, dies and he is one of the 9/11 architects.
The new Saudi king is bombing neighbors, executing Shi’ites at home, tormenting women in the most anti-woman regime on earth, he has assisted in overthrowing an elected government in Egypt and replacing it with a brutal regime that is storming around the southern borders of Israel, butchering the tribes there. And the Saudis are behind ISIS only now they are scared because ISIS has announced they want to overthrow the royal family that is looting Saudi Arabia.
The Saudis flooded the world with oil when prices were dropping which the US encouraged because our rulers gloated openly that this would destroy Russia’s economy and banking system. But China came to the rescue. Now, China’s stock market is having a classic crash after a classic bubble. The US rejoices in this as does Japan but this simply hikes the dangers of a world war, not peace and freedom for anyone.
ZIRP lending to the very rich has saved the EU and US stock markets and the price of things the very rich buy has shot through the roof. Mansions, art work by dead famous artists, stocks, luxury items have all shot up in value as the working class gets poorer and poorer: all the mistakes made by the elites before WWI are right in our faces a mere 100 years later, nothing has been learned about how to have a civil and safe society.
