Little Men of DC and NYC Deam of New Wars

Posted by Martin C. Fox on August 5, 2017

https://www.lewrockwell.com/2017/08/fred-reed/little-men-dc-nyc-deam-new-wars/

Why do those inadequate little men in Washington and New York dream of new wars? Because the empire is near a tipping point.

Washington must either either start a war in Korea, or gets faced down by the North, its carriers ignored, its bombers “sending signals” and making “shows of force” without result. 

Iran has not caved to Washington’s threats and sanctions and clearly isn’t going to. Another strategic loss, a big one, unless–the hawks seem to think–remedied by a war. Iran wants to trade with Europe and Europe likes the idea. Worse, Iran is becoming a vital part of China’s aim to integrate Europe and Asia economically. To the empire this smells of death. The frightened grow desperate. Read the rest of this entry »

Endless Wars-Winning Is Not In The Plan

Posted by Martin C. Fox on August 2, 2017

https://www.lewrockwell.com/2017/08/patrick-j-buchanan/endless-wars/

Unless we believe Kim is a suicidal madman, his goal seems clear. He wants what every nuclear power wants — the ability to strike his enemy’s homeland with horrific impact, in order to deter that enemy.

Kim wants his regime recognized and respected, and the U.S., which carpet-bombed the North from 1950-1953, out of Korea.

A time for truth. U.S. sanctions on North Korea, like those voted for by Congress last week, are not going to stop Kim from acquiring ICBMs. He is too close to the goal line.

And any pre-emptive strike on the North could trigger a counterattack on Seoul by massed artillery on the DMZ, leaving tens of thousands of South Koreans dead, alongside U.S. soldiers and their dependents.

We could be in an all-out war to the finish with the North, a war the American people do not want to fight. Read the rest of this entry »

How Media Spread CIA’s Sectarian, Anti-Iran ‘Mideast Cold War’ Narrative

Posted by Martin C. Fox on July 27, 2017

http://fair.org/home/vox-cia-iran-saudi-arabia-middle-east-cold-war/

A new Vox video (7/17/17) is the latest addition to a media onslaught that propagates numerous misleading talking points to demonize Iran—just as the US government, under Donald Trump’s vehemently anti-Iran administration, is ratcheting up aggression against that country.

More On The Real John McCain

Posted by Martin C. Fox on July 25, 2017

https://lewrockwell.com/2017/07/jack-kerwick/real-john-mccain/

The truth, though, is that in exchange for the billions and billions of dollars that McCain has confiscated from them for well over three decades, taxpayers have received an ever-burgeoning administrative state, relentless illegal immigration from the Third World, and, of course, war—and all while McCain has pretended to be a “conservative.”

Thanks to his labors, hundreds of thousands of human beings, both foreign and American alike, are now dead. Read the rest of this entry »

The Ron Paul Institute for Peace and Prosperity : Trump Should Veto Congress’ Foolish New Sanctions Bill

Posted by Martin C. Fox on July 25, 2017

http://ronpaulinstitute.org/archives/featured-articles/2017/july/24/trump-should-veto-congress-foolish-new-sanctions-bill/

Sanctions have become kind of an automatic action the US government takes when it simply doesn’t know what else to do.

No matter what the problem, no matter where on earth it occurs, the answer from Washington is always sanctions. Sanctions are supposed to force governments to change policies and do what Washington tells them or face the wrath of their people. So the goal of sanctions is to make life as miserable as possible for civilians so they will try to overthrow their governments. Foreign leaders and the elites do not suffer under sanctions. This policy would be immoral even if it did work, but it does not. Read the rest of this entry »

Why Are We Attacking Syrians Who Are Fighting ISIS? – Collective Evolution

Posted by Martin C. Fox on June 19, 2017

http://www.collective-evolution.com/2017/06/15/why-are-we-attacking-syrians-who-are-fighting-isis/

What is this really all about? Why does the US military occupy this base inside Syria? It’s partly about preventing the Syrians and Iraqis from working together to fight ISIS, but I think it’s mostly about Iran. If the Syrians and Iraqis join up to fight ISIS with the help of Iranian-allied Shia militia, the US believes it will strengthen Iran’s hand in the region. President Trump has recently returned from a trip to Saudi Arabia where he swore he would not allow that to happen.

But is this policy really in our interest, or are we just doing the bidding of our Middle East “allies,” who seem desperate for war with Iran? Saudi Arabia exports its radical form of Islam worldwide, including recently into moderate Asian Muslim countries like Indonesia. Iran does not.

The US supports ISIS, Syria doesn’t. 

ISIS fights Iraq, Iran and others that never attacked the US. The US supports ISIS, Saudi Arabia, Al Qaeda and Israel who have all attacked the US.

The foreign policy your taxes enable.

 It makes sense in Washington.

RUSSIA HACKS ELECTION!

Posted by Martin C. Fox on June 15, 2017

http://www.latimes.com/nation/la-na-us-intervention-foreign-elections-20161213-story.html

Sorry, did I say Russia?  I meant the CIA.

The U.S. has a long history of attempting to influence presidential elections in other countries – it’s done so as many as 81 times between 1946 and 2000, according to a database amassed by political scientist Dov Levin of Carnegie Mellon University. Read the rest of this entry »

1983 CIA Doc Reveals Plot – LewRockwell

Posted by Martin C. Fox on April 12, 2017

https://lewrockwell.com/2017/04/tyler-durden/1983-cia-doc-reveals-plot/

Prophetically foreshadowing the current crisis (and apparent action plan), leaked CIA documents from the reign of Bashar al-Assad’s father in the 1980s show a Washington Deep State plan coalescing to “bring real muscle to bear against Syria,” toppling its leader (in favor of one amenable to US demands) , severing ties with Russia (its primary arms dealer), and paving the way for an oil and gas pipeline of Washington’s choosing.
Same old story…Oil. Same old partner…Saudi Arabia money men for Washington, oil companies and the 9/11 hijackers.

Global Leaders Rattle Their Sabers As The World Marches Toward War

Posted by Martin C. Fox on March 16, 2017

http://theeconomiccollapseblog.com/archives/global-leaders-rattle-their-sabers-as-the-world-marches-toward-war

And the U.S. military has recently made several other moves in the region that have angered the Chinese

Also in February, the U.S. sent a dozen F-22 Raptor stealth fighters to Tindal AB in northern Australia, the closest Australian military airbase to China, for coalition training and exercises. It’s the first deployment of that many F-22s in the Pacific.

And if that didn’t get the attention of the Chinese government, the U.S. just tested four Trident II submarine-launched ballistic missiles during a nuclear war exercise, sending the simulated weapons 4,200 miles from the coast of California into the mid-Pacific. It’s the first time in three years the U.S. has conducted tests in the Pacific, and the first four-missile salvo since the end of the Cold War.

I can understand the need to look tough, but eventually, somebody is going to go too far.

It won’t be long before the government gets the war it wants.

Be prepared, stock up with food and ammo and stay aware from target areas. Consider yourself lucky if you do not live near big cities, defense industry locations, major travel intersections and corridors.

Antiwar.com Original » The Five Blinding Myths About Iran » Print

Posted by Martin C. Fox on March 12, 2017

http://original.antiwar.com/ted_snider/2017/03/10/the-five-blinding-myths-about-iran/print/

Myth Three: Iran is a Destabilizing Force in the Middle East and is the World’s Leading State Sponsor of Terrorism

The day after the US imposed the new sanctions on Iran, General Mattis declaredthat “As far as Iran goes, this is the single biggest state sponsor of terrorism in the world.” CIA director Mike Pompeo has similarly called Iran “the world’s largest state sponsor of terrorism.” And Trump, himself, told Bill O’Reilly that Iran is “the number one terrorist state.”

There is no support for this claim.

Recent attempts to link Iran to terrorism have all been revealed as perjuries

The biggest myth. The leading Middle East sponsors of terrorism are 1. Our friend Saudi Arabia 2. Our friend Israel 3. Our friend Turkey. They support Al Qaeda directly and ISIS particularly in overthrowing Syria and in the case of Turkey using Al Qaeda to kill Kurds. 

The biggest non ME sponsor of terrorism has to send troops to the other side of the planet to kill anything that moves in order to bring peace. It blows up wedding parties,  funeral processions and helps Saudis destroy the poorest country in the ME in order to win hearts and minds.
