Killing C.I.A. Informants, China Crippled U.S. Spying Operations – The New York Times reports in pure hysteria. The gist of this entire article is: we have the right to spy, bribe foreign entities and pry into everyone’s private affairs whereas, no one is allowed to spy on the US and Wikileaks is evil because they release information vital to citizens which our own spies are hiding from us because the Bilderberg gang doesn’t want citizens to know what the hell is really going on as they push us into one disaster after another!
Fairy tales and ancient myths have many stories explaining why you have to beware of ‘letting the genie out of the lamp’ lest it kill you. Wishing to destroy someone by unleashing wild monsters always ends badly for the ones calling on the demonic for help. Yet the US government thinks this is a great way to do diplomacy so we limp from terror attack to wars to uprisings to dictatorships to more wars and terror attacks. The response to 9/11 wasn’t close examination of the facts and a change in foreign diplomacy, instead it led to wild, irresponsible global attacks by the US, Israel, NATO and the Saudi Royals all of whom helped the 9/11 attackers in the first place.
As I long predicted, the US aggression, the US backing of right wing fascist regimes and coups has shoved Russia and China closer and closer. The ‘pivot to Asia’ has the US taking on a slew of client states running trade surpluses with us which will abuse our military backing to do stupid things aimed at China and Russia. This is fatal for us due to it all costing us dearly in red ink trade deficits plus military spending red ink. This will kill our empire swiftly.
As the US government totally ignores Fukushima, we have a revival of the Cold War which means the US has to exercise its nuclear arsenal which is has used in the past in Japan. The above video is some help (NOT) for dealing with nuclear war and here is another we should look at since our government is planning WWIII over stupid things like preventing Ukrainian citizens from voting about their own country.
Much of the world is ruled by the super rich. Oligarchs have thrived greatly, since the fall of communism and the rise of free trade which erases borders and unleashed a tsunami of money printing by mostly the US. Our own oligarchs have passed tax bills that remove nearly all obligations to pay for our government. In turn, the very rich use this loot to either run for office or buy politicians to do their bidding. In most cases, what they want is more money for themselves and less money for the rest of us while madly grinding away at the money making machine which is ‘debt’. Our debt rises, their wealth increases.
