Too Many Wars. Too Many Enemies.

Posted by Martin C. Fox on January 30, 2018

In 500 years when the printing press has been recovered from the ashes there will be a new book-The Fall of the American Empire.

I also predict it will be quite similar to a book today’s generals never read in their government school.

If Turkey is not bluffing, U.S. troops in Manbij, Syria, could be under fire by week’s end, and NATO engulfed in the worst crisis in its history.

Turkish President Erdogan said Friday his troops will cleanse Manbij of Kurdish fighters, alongside whom U.S. troops are embedded.

Erdogan’s foreign minister demanded concrete steps by the U.S. to end its support of the Kurds, who control the Syrian border with Turkey east of the Euphrates, all the way to Iraq.

If the Turks attack Manbij, the U.S. will face a choice: Stand by our Kurdish allies and resist the Turks, or abandon the Kurds. Read the rest of this entry »

Kick Turkey Out of NATO – Antiwar.com Original

Posted by Martin C. Fox on January 29, 2018

https://original.antiwar.com/justin/2018/01/28/kick-turkey-nato/

The North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) was founded in 1949, over theobjections of conservatives like Sen. Robert A. Taft, as a supposed bulwark of “democracy” against the allegedly rising tide of totalitarianism, which the American people were told was about ready to cross the stormy Atlantic and land on our shores. Bolsheviks in Brooklyn! Well, we have them there today, but they’re the homegrown variety: the old-fashioned Soviet types are long gone: another fake “threat” that enriched the panic-mongers and robbed the rest of us… Read the rest of this entry »

The truth about « fake news », by Thierry Meyssan

Posted by Martin C. Fox on January 17, 2018

Just remember-NATO is someone’s or a three letter something’s tool also.

http://www.voltairenet.org/article199378.html

While NATO was busy setting up a vast network with which to accuse Russia of perpetuating propaganda from the Soviet era, Washington was suddenly swamped by a wave of hysteria. In an attempt to discredit the new US President, the dominant media accuse him of talking rubbish – in response, the President accuses them of propagating fake news. This cacophony is amplified by the swift development of the social media, which had once been intended for use as weapons of the State Department against nationalist regimes, but which today are popular forums used to combat abuse by all kinds of elites – with Washington at the top of the list.

Another Step Toward Armageddon – PaulCraigRoberts.org

Posted by Martin C. Fox on January 12, 2018

Adjustable yield bombs is helping to make this happen.

Being able to destroy just one city as opposed to an entire region makes nukes “acceptable”.

It seems to me proliferation of nuclear weapons a violation of the nuclear non-proliferation treaty. But then what does a dum ‘ol country boy know?

https://www.paulcraigroberts.org/2018/01/11/another-step-toward-armageddon/

The US military/security complex has taken another step toward Armageddon. The Pentagon has prepared a nuclear posture review (NPR) that gives the OK to development of smaller “usable” nuclear weapons and permits their use in response to a non-nuclear attack.

As Reagan and Gorbachev understood, but the warmongers who have taken over America do not, there are far too many nuclear weapons already. Some scientists have concluded that even the use of 10 percent of either the US or Russian arsenal would suffice to destroy life on earth… Read the rest of this entry »

NATO’s Fraudulent War on Behalf of Women

Posted by Martin C. Fox on January 11, 2018

Taking action, of course, means taking military action. It never means, say, the lifting of sanctions so that food, oil, medical supplies could get through. To the contrary, if military action is ruled out, the humanitarians immediately resort to demanding the tightening of sanctions.

https://www.counterpunch.org/2018/01/09/natos-fraudulent-war-on-behalf-of-women/

In a recent Guardian article titled “Why NATO Must Defend Women’s Rights,” NATO Secretary-General Jens Soltenberg and Hollywood movie star Angelina Jolie assert that “NATO has the responsibility and opportunity to be a leading protector of women’s rights.” NATO, moreover, “can become the global military leader in how to prevent and respond to sexual violence in conflict.” The two vowed to identify “ways in which NATO can strengthen its contribution to women’s protection and participation in all aspects of conflict-prevention and resolution.”… Read the rest of this entry »

When Washington Assured Russia NATO Would Not Expand | The American Conservative

Posted by Martin C. Fox on December 22, 2017

 

If we are God’s choice to rule the world, as many in Washington will tell you, His plan certainly is mysterious.

http://www.theamericanconservative.com/articles/when-washington-assured-russia-nato-would-not-expand/

For Washington, London, and Paris, the solution was obvious: keep the Germans in a warm but firm embrace. Ensuring that a united Germany remained part of NATO would reduce the likelihood of it choosing at some future date to strike an independent course.

To make that prospect palatable, the Bush administration assured the Soviets that they had nothing to fear from a Western alliance that included a united Germany. NATO no longer viewed the USSR as an adversary. Apart from incorporating the territory of the former East Germany, the alliance was going to stay put. Washington was sensitive to and would respect Russia’s own security interests. So at least U.S. officials claimed. Read the rest of this entry »

How Bill Clinton Accidentally Started Another Cold War | The American Conservative

Posted by Martin C. Fox on October 29, 2017

I tend to believe the promise was never meant to be kept. We are talking about a promise from CIA man George H.W. Bush.  I also believe the Trump/CIA deal was made in part because G. H.W. B. is still alive.

http://www.theamericanconservative.com/articles/how-bill-clinton-accidentally-started-another-cold-war/

Who bears responsibility for the current tensions between America and Russia? There are many answers to that question but blame is overdue to President Bill Clinton who in 1994 sealed the fate of any potential U.S.-Russia partnership when he made the decision to expand the NATO alliance into Moscow’s former sphere of influence. That set the stage for a renewed great power struggle in Europe against a revanchist Russia, just as legendary diplomat George F. Kennan repeatedly warnedthe Clinton administration that it would.

“Expanding NATO would be the most fateful error of American policy in the entire post-cold-war era,” Kennan wrote on February 5, 1997 in a New York Times op-ed.“Such a decision may be expected to inflame the nationalistic, anti-Western and militaristic tendencies in Russian opinion; to have an adverse effect on the development of Russian democracy; to restore the atmosphere of the cold war to East-West relations, and to impel Russian foreign policy in directions decidedly not to our liking.” Read the rest of this entry »

Afghanistan and NATO | Libertarian Party

Posted by Martin C. Fox on August 23, 2017

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 »
