Trump on How We Must Get Out of Afghanistan. Ho, Ho, Ho.

Posted by Martin C. Fox on August 25, 2017

German generals made several surrender appeals possibly as early as 1941 with Rudolf Hess’ defection to England. The allies said no.

The Japanese wanted to surrender in early 1945 but the allies said no.

The Afghan Taliban wanted to surrender but the US said no.

War is the health of the state (Randoph Bourne). War is a racket (General Smedley Butler). War is big busine$$ (Me).

On Monday, August 21, President Trump announced that he has reversed his previous plan to pull U.S. troops out of Afghanistan.

Politics is a matter of selective betrayals

It always has been. Sometimes we find that the betrayals are monumental, yet there are no negative sanctions against the betrayers. Woodrow Wilson campaigned in the election of 1916 of this slogan: “He kept us out of war.” exactly one month after his inauguration, he went before the Congress of the United States and demanded that the Congress vote for war. The Congress dutifully did this.

Franklin Roosevelt in 1940 duplicated this campaign procedure. He promised that he would not send American boys off to war. Then, he spent all of 1941 maneuvering diplomatically to get the Japanese to attack the United States somewhere in the Pacific. No reputable historian is supposed to say this, but that was reality in 1941. What made everything perfect for him was that Adolf Hitler, the greatest fool in history of military strategy, declared war on the United States on December 11, 1941. Hitler really was was the perfect fool. He invaded Russia in June, and he lost Dunkirk in 1940. Roosevelt was lucky to have such a fool on the other side of the Atlantic.

It never ceases to amaze me that people get excited about electing a President every four years. They are convinced during the campaign that it is all going to make a big difference. Even the handful of conservative voters who have heard of the Council on Foreign Relations and Goldman Sachs’ investment banking firm are convinced that this time, the CFR and Goldman Sachs will not come out winners after four more years. Ho, ho, ho.

Bill Clinton’s Secretary of the Treasury was the ex-CEO of Goldman Sachs. George W. Bush’s Secretary of the Treasury was the ex-CEO of Goldman Sachs. Present Trump’s Secretary of the Treasury worked for Goldman Sachs for 17 years. He became a multimillionaire at Goldman Sachs. Goldman Sachs is still running the show in the White House.

Be seeing you
