Afghanistan and NATO | Libertarian Party

There is nothing left of the dead Afghan horse to beat.

https://www.lp.org/afghanistan-and-nato/

According to Forbes: “Since [the initial] intervention in the aftermath of 9/11, roughly 2,400 American military personnel have died and more than 20,000 been wounded attempting to bring democracy to Central Asia. Some 3,500 military contractors have been killed, along with more than 1,100 allied personnel. Overall the US has poured more than $800 billion into the war. Set aside the costs of combat. The US has spent $117.3 billion on relief and ‘reconstruction,’ that is, attempting to create a functioning state in Afghanistan.”

Despite all of this sacrifice and hard work, nation building in Iraq and Afghanistan has been a failure. No matter how sophisticated our military is and no matter how much we sacrifice, nation building is far more difficult than our politicians believed. Not only that, it may create more terrorists than it quells. Read the rest of this entry »

Dirty Open Secret: US Created and Supports ISIS | Global Research – Centre for Research on Globalization

Posted by Martin C. Fox on June 18, 2017

http://www.globalresearch.ca/dirty-open-secret-us-created-and-supports-isis/5594486

US Defense Intelligence Agency (DIA) documents prove it – obtained by Judicial Watch through an FOIA lawsuit. 

They show ISIS, al-Qaeda and like-minded terrorist groups are the “major forces” used as US foot soldiers in Syria, Iraq and elsewhere. 

The myth of so-called “moderate rebels” was long ago discredited. Yet claiming they exist persists. 

The DIA documents show America, NATO, Saudi Arabia and other regional rogue states support an Islamic caliphate to challenge, topple and replace Bashar al-Assad with an imperial puppet. 

In a January 2016 Iran Review article, James Fetzer discussed evidence of ISIS’ creation by America.  Read the rest of this entry »

Charles Krauthammer On Trump, CIA Front NATO and Keeping the War Machine Alive

Posted by Martin C. Fox on June 3, 2017

http://insider.foxnews.com/2017/05/26/krauthammer-trump-foreign-trip-nato-visit-not-committing-article-5

Charles Krauthammer said President Trump’s first foreign trip as commander-in-chief got off to a strong start in the Middle East, but the second part of the trip in Europe was a “disaster.” He didn’t take issue with Trump scolding our NATO allies and telling them to pay their “fair share” of the alliance’s defense costs. Instead, Krauthammer said, Trump left NATO members unsettled by not reiterating U.S. commitment to Article 5 of the NATO charter. Article 5 is a mutual defense pledge and NATO’s core tenet. It means that “an attack against one ally is considered as an attack against all.”

The warparty and it presstitute media ‘forget’ NATOlike alliances got the UK, and eventually the US, sucked into two of the world’s worst wars. The first of which likely would have turned out better if we had stayed out. Read the rest of this entry »

Europe vs. Trump – LewRockwell

Posted by Martin C. Fox on June 3, 2017

https://lewrockwell.com/2017/06/eric-margolis/europe-vs-trump/

As the recently deceased thinker Zbigniew Brezezinski  aptly put it to me,  Europe provides strategic ‘stepping-stones’ to the expansion of US influence into Eurasia through NATO.  The alliance is not an equal partnership, it’s the primary tool for enforcing US power in Europe.

Is McCain hijacking Trump’s foreign policy?

Posted by Martin C. Fox on March 16, 2017

http://www.wnd.com/2017/03/is-mccain-hijacking-trumps-foreign-policy/

From our longest war, Afghanistan, comes word from U.S. Gen. John Nicholson that we and our Afghan allies are in a “stalemate” with the Taliban, and he will need a “few thousand” more U.S. troops – to augment the 8,500 President Obama left behind when he left office.
Committing the US to go to war over Montenegro? McCain needs to declare victory and retire.

Historically, the Balkans have been an incubator of war. In the 19th century, Otto van Bismarck predicted that when the Great War came, it would come out of “some damn fool thing in the Balkans.” And so it did when the Austrian archduke was assassinated in Sarajevo June 28, 1914, by Serbian ethnonationalist Gavrilo Princip.

Why are we fighting the Taliban? They never attacked US. We attacked them. The result of Bush’s fake news back in 2002.

It’s time for your nap Senator McCain.

Be seeing you

NATO’s Strange Addition of Montenegro

Posted by Martin C. Fox on March 1, 2017

https://consortiumnews.com/2017/02/28/natos-strange-addition-of-montenegro/

As for the “rule of law,” consider that Montenegro’s ruler for nearly three decades, Milo Djukanovi?, was given the 2015 Organized Crime and Corruption “Person of the Year” Award by the Organized Crime and Corruption Reporting Project (OCCRP), an organization of several hundred investigative journalists who report on corruption in Europe and Central Asia (and are partly financed by USAID).

Don’t Add Montenegro To ‘Obsolete’ NATO: Senate Shouldn’t Sacrifice U.S. Security For Balkan Mouse

Posted by Martin C. Fox on January 21, 2017

http://www.forbes.com/sites/dougbandow/2017/01/16/will-senate-sacrifice-u-s-security-for-benefit-of-balkan-mouse-montenegro-doesnt-belong-in-nato/#54154e441f3e

Trump is right about NATO. Chancing WW III over real estate on the other side of the planet, mouse or not, is nuts. NATO, paid for almost entirely by US taxpayers, is nothing more than a minion for the deep state and US “intelligence”.

Why I Am Voting For Donald Trump And Not A Third Obama Administration

Posted by Martin C. Fox on August 15, 2016

As the USSR collapsed, part of Mikhail Gorbachev’s agreement to dissolve the Warsaw Pact hinged upon the US pledge not to enlarge NATO. Thanks to Clinton I, Bush II and Obama NATO is up to Russia’s border.

Obama’s trillion dollar nuclear upgrade plan is an in-your-Russian-face challenge. New adjustable yield nukes are being touted as a way to make nuclear first strikes acceptable. Advanced nukes, anti-missile systems in Eastern Europe and sailing warships up to Russian shores are a directive- Do what you are told or prepare to glow in the dark.

Russia and China for some strange reason resist being part of this plan. They want to be the main player in their own neighborhoods. What gall!

Wall Street Hillary is the neocons high priestess of ‘Boss of the world at any cost’ theology.

Kosovo, Libya, Iraq, Syria, Afghanistan: War is the only ‘diplomatic’ tool Clinton knows. War machine money green is the only color she knows.

Fred Reed said this ‘There are three kinds of stupid-Stupid, really-really stupid and war with Russia’.

Donald Trump acknowledges Russia is an effective partner in fighting ISIS. Trump says Russia could be a friend and trading partner. Then there is ‘the thing that is not said’, Russia as an ally in counterbalancing China. Read the rest of this entry »

US Foreign Policy-Drop In And See What Condition Is Our Condition In

Posted by Martin C. Fox on August 11, 2016

Have you ever stopped to think what makes up US foreign policy? What have Hillary Clinton, John Kerry and their antecedents wrought?

The main US foreign policy tools for winning hearts and minds include bribery, intimidation and hellfire missiles. Not a lot has changed.

In the Middle East we create an atmosphere that breeds dozens of terrorist groups we don’t understand then pay, train and equip them all to fight each other. We do Islamists a favor by upending Middle Eastern countries so they can walk in and take over, we try two or three times if we have to. We team up and fund Sunnis who attack(ed) us to fight Shias that haven’t attacked us. We never mention 9/11 and Saudi Arabia in the same day.

The EU and NATO policy is fund their defense and require them to spend their ill gotten US taxpayer dollars on US armament ‘upgrades’. You have to keep up to snuff if you are going to run with the big boys. As a bonus the MI Complex keeps campaign coffers well fed.

Central and South America, Southern Europe/Asia, Africa and far East Asian countries and other assorted minions are encouraged to take our money, do what we say, not go pinko and not speak kindly to Russia and China.

Pacific (Lake USA) countries are told to accept US money, troops, bases and missiles as they will be the first to be crushed by China and North Korea whom the US is economically and militarily aggravating. As is the case with Eastern Europe and Russia.

Uppity commies that complain when we sail warships up to their shores need to be reminded who is master.

Pay Israel whatever they demand, do whatever they demand, do not ask them to help fight ISIS and ignore their partnership with Saudi Arabia in funding Sunni terrorists. Do NOT ‘Remember the Liberty’.

Any son of bitch that robs, rapes, murders, tortures, gets rich off US tax payers and selling drugs gets a free pass if he is OUR son of a bitch.

Get military bases established anywhere and everywhere.

If any miscreants (excluding Israeli or SA miscreants) fail to obey they can expect a ‘democracy’ advocating NGO, Gladio and/or CIA to straighten them out using the above mentioned tools. When Victoria Nuland invites herself for a visit you know you are in for a whoopin’.

I’d say that about covers it.

Be seeing you
