Terrorism for Profit – Antiwar.com Original

Posted by Martin C. Fox on August 13, 2017

http://original.antiwar.com/robert-koehler/2017/08/11/terrorism-for-profit/

This is what war is all about.

At a recent, well-publicized meeting with his generals, Trump “lamented that China is making money off of Afghanistan’s estimated $1 trillion in rare minerals while American troops are fighting the war,” according to NBC News. “Trump expressed frustration that his advisers tasked with figuring out how the US can help American businesses get rights to those minerals were moving too slowly, one official said. …

“The focus on the minerals was reminiscent of Trump’s comments early into his presidency when he lamented that the US didn’t take Iraq’s oil when the majority of forces departed the country in 2011.”

Are American Wars Just and Moral? – LewRockwell

Posted by Martin C. Fox on July 26, 2017

https://lewrockwell.com/2017/07/patrick-j-buchanan/american-wars-just-moral/

In which of the countries we have attacked or invaded in this century — Afghanistan, Iraq, Syria, Libya, Yemen — are the people better off 
than they were before we came?

And we wonder why they hate us.

Just like here at home it is about control. Not improving life.

The problem is there are fewer sheeple over there than here.

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 »

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.

US Military Sent over $1 Billion Worth of Light Weapons To “Multiple Armed Groups” in Iraq | Global Research – Centre for Research on Globalization

Posted by Martin C. Fox on June 5, 2017

http://www.globalresearch.ca/us-military-sent-over-1-billion-worth-of-light-weapons-to-multiple-armed-groups-in-iraq/5592502

Amply documented, the US and its allies are supplying weapons, training and military equipment to numerous Al Qaeda affiliated rebels (including ISIS) acting on behalf of their State sponsors.

According to Amnesty, the sending of weapons to multiple rebel groups is justified. The killing of civilians is not an issue. The failures of the US Army outlined in the DoD report pertain to errors in monitoring, delivery, record-keeping and human error: Read the rest of this entry »

Terrorism Is Not a Forest Fire – LewRockwell

Posted by Martin C. Fox on May 25, 2017

https://lewrockwell.com/2017/05/jack-perry/terrorism-not-forest-fire/

The West still seems at a loss to understand why this is happening. Well, guys, here’s why: You need to get out of the Middle East and stay out. It really is that simple. And you guys have been told that repeatedly for decades. But the real reason Western governments refuse to listen is because they’re pretty much safe against suffering the consequences of Western government Middle East meddling. It’s the public that pays the price, not the politicians.
The public pays in civilian and military lives and taxes used to support the military and the bankster profiteers. Read the rest of this entry »

Mattis: US Troops Need to Stay in Iraq for ‘Years’ — News from Antiwar.com

Posted by Martin C. Fox on March 26, 2017

http://news.antiwar.com/2017/03/24/mattis-us-troops-need-to-stay-in-iraq-for-years/

I have a solution for the US war in Iraq. Stop funding Saudi Arabia, Al Qaeda and Israel. Get the hell out.

Alternatively jump in the TARDIS and go back to 1947 or there abouts, before the CIA, and make the Dulles brothers become philatelists.

How long can supposedly intelligent people rationalize beating this long dead horse? How long will the sheeple tolerate it.

Shucks, I just remember why we are still there. $$$$$$$$$$$$$$

President Trump: What Happened To Your Promise To Get Us Out These Messes, Close Bases And Bring Our Troops Home?

Congress Needs to Stop Trump’s Escalation of the War on Syria

 On March 9, The New York Times reported that the United States is sending 400 troops to Syria to bolster the small number of American troops that are already on the ground there. A week later, March 15, The Washington Post reported that the Pentagon has drawn up plans to send a 1,000 more troops within the coming weeks. Meanwhile, in anticipation of the coming (and perhaps final) stages of the operation against the Islamic State, the administration has decided to send “an additional 2,500 ground combat troops to a staging base in Kuwait from which they could be called upon to back up coalition forces battling the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria.”

Candidate Trump, where did you go?

The Secret Iraq Dossier

Posted by Martin C. Fox on March 8, 2017

http://www.smh.com.au/interactive/2017/iraq-dossier/

AU is still playing at “I want to be your friend” by allowing US marines to base in Oz just to antagonize China. Which means they are the focus of a possible attack. I thought tough Aussies had more self worth than to roll over for Uncle Sam. I am hoping what the govt does is not a reflection of the population.

I suppose we will have to, as usual, wait for Seymour Hersh to come out with the real story which will be totally ignored by the MSM.
