How the US government and US military became Murder, Inc.

March 31, 2015 by · Leave a Comment 

Andrew Cockburn has written a must-read book. The title is Kill Chain: The Rise of the High-Tech Assassins. The title could just as well be: How the US Government and US Military Became Murder, Inc.

The US military no longer does war. It does assassinations, usually of the wrong people. The main victims of the US assassination policy are women, children, village elders, weddings, funerals, and occasionally US soldiers mistaken for Taliban by US surveillance operating with the visual acuity of the definition of legal blindness.

Cockburn tells the story of how the human element has been displaced by remote control killing guided by misinterpretation of unclear images on screens collected by surveillance drones and sensors thousands of miles away. Cockburn shows that the “all-seeing” drone surveillance system is an operational failure but is supported by defense contractors because of its high profitability and by the military brass because general officers, with the exception of General Paul Van Ripper, are brainwashed in the belief that the revolution in military affairs means that high-tech devices replace the human element. Cockburn demonstrates that this belief is immune to all evidence to the contrary. The US military has now reached the point that Secretary of Defense Hagel deactivated both the A-10 close support fighter and the U-2 spy plane in favor of the operationally failed unmanned Global Hawk System. With the A-10 and U-2 went the last platforms for providing a human eye on what is happening on the ground.

Globalist Wars Killed Over 2 Million People in Last Decade

March 31, 2015 by · Leave a Comment 

U.S. wars initiated at the behest of a global financial elite killed more than 2,000,000 people, according to a report published by Physicians for Social Responsibility.

Body Count: Casualty Figures after 10 Years of the “War on Terror” summarizes:

The investigation produced results seriously at odds with what the government and its corporate media have reported.

This investigation comes to the conclusion that the war has, directly or indirectly, killed around 1 million people in Iraq, 220,000 in Afghanistan and 80,000 in Pakistan, i.e. a total of around 1.3 million. Not included in this figure are further war zones such as Yemen. The figure is approximately 10 times greater than that of which the public, experts and decision makers are aware of and propagated by the media and major NGOs. And this is only a conservative estimate. The total number of deaths in the three countries named above could also be in excess of 2 million, whereas a figure below 1 million is extremely unlikely.

Corporatism 101

March 31, 2015 by · Leave a Comment 

Regular readers of this Corporatocracy series should have a firm grasp on the concept of Corporatism. However, the uninitiated might presume that a corporation is merely a vehicle for protecting the owners of the enterprise from the liability risks of conducting business. Much attention has been devoted to the economic conditions and aspects when examining the corporate structure. But modest effort is found in business journals that discuss the social consequences of consolidating the entire hierarchy of political favoritism, access to capital and protection from competition that is at the heart of the corporatist model.

Can a moral revival happen where God is dead?

March 30, 2015 by · Leave a Comment 

The inexorable decay in moral conduct is evident and undeniable to any member of the cretin society. Only a fool or a fraudster would argue that the relativism ethics, which is the operative social prescription, is healthy human development for a harmonious culture. Society has gone mad. Look around and observe. Insanity in institutions and conflicts among personal interactions has become the norm. The basis of desirable stability and fair order are virtually non-existent. Upon this stage of discontent, humans are now viewed as the ultimate dispensable creatures. Eugenics is all the rage, as human life is treated with irreverence.

Déjà vu – Global Gulag – All’s well with Afghanistan opium trade

March 29, 2015 by · Leave a Comment 

Business is booming! “Two years after the ousting of the Taliban regime, which had cracked down ruthlessly on the cultivation of opium, production of the substance last year hit 3,600 tones, up 6 per cent over the previous year, and surveys of farmers show a further increase is likely this year.” This war against terrorists is great for the drug trade. See any pattern when troops are garrisoned? The protection racket just runs their traffic with more efficiency.

Neocon Harper has announced he is going to ignore international law and start bombing Syria as well as Iraq

March 27, 2015 by · Leave a Comment 

Prime Minister Stephen Harper laughed off concerns Wednesday that Canada is about to flout international law by launching airstrikes against the Islamic State in Syria.

Harper announced Tuesday that the government would extend Canada’s mission against ISIL, which so far has been limited to Iraq. The Tories intend to bomb ISIL targets in Syria but do not plan on asking president Bashar al-Assad for his consent.

The US House of Representatives Openly Calls for Regime Change in Moscow

March 26, 2015 by · Leave a Comment 

Aside from the usual Congressional lust for war, so as to secure their billions in military industrial complex campaign donations (slush funds), the key part of the House’s bill, calling for lethal aid to Ukraine, has nothing to do with Ukraine at all.

The resolution gets to the root of what America’s elite really want…the dismantling, and subsequent resource plundering of the Russian Federation.

As taken from the US House Resolution:

Whereas the United States and its allies need a long-term strategy to expose and challenge Vladimir Putin’s corruption and repression at home and his aggression abroad;

Let that sink in for a second. The United States Congress has put, in writing, their goal to formulate a “long term strategy” to challenge the democratically elected President of Russia, Vladimir Putin.

Obama’s foreign policy: Perhaps cunning, but never wise, never truthful

March 25, 2015 by · Leave a Comment 

This writer carries no brief for Israel. All that is written and argued about “Israel’s right to exist” is nonsense. Neither Israel nor the United States nor any other nation has a right to exist. A state’s ability to survive depends solely on its own social cohesion, economic viability, and domestic political, international, and military behavior and actions, not on some non-existent right the Israel-First lobby dreamed-up to use to propagandized the American people into eternally supporting a nation that is completely irrelevant — and, indeed, bloodily counter-productive — to genuine U.S. national security interests.

Regime change: US’s failing weapon of international deception

March 25, 2015 by · Leave a Comment 

For years, Winston Churchill’s famous quote, “It has been said that democracy is the worst form of government except all the others that have been tried,” has served as Americans’ last word in any political discussion which requires validation of the US government, no matter how corrupt or flawed in its behavior, as the best in the planet, comparatively or by default. Never mind the meaning that Mr. Churchill had intended back in 1947, or how the international political panorama has changed during the past seven decades.

Lawmakers boost war spending as the wars wind down

March 24, 2015 by · Leave a Comment 

The 2016 House and Senate budget proposals for war spending that moved toward a congressional floor vote this week were loaded up with tens of billions of dollars more than the Defense Department requested, representing the largest increase lawmakers have attempted to add to the executive branch’s requests for such funds.
