The Global War on Terror or GWOT was declared in the wake of 9/11 by President George W. Bush. It basically committed the United States to work to eliminate all “terrorist” groups worldwide, whether or not the countries being targeted agreed that they were beset by terrorists and whether or not they welcomed U.S. “help.” The GWOT was promoted with brain-dead expressions like “there’s a new sheriff in town” which, after the destruction of large parts of the Middle East and Central Asia, later morphed into the matrix of the God-awful belief that something called “American Exceptionalism” existed.

With a national election lurking on the horizon we will no doubt be hearing more about Exceptionalism from various candidates seeking to support the premise that the United States can interfere in every country on the planet because it is, as the expression goes, exceptional. That is generally how Donald Trump and hardline Republicans see the world, that sovereignty exercised by foreign governments is and should be limited by the reach of the U.S. military. Surrounding a competitor with military bases and warships is a concept that many in Washington are currently trying to sell regarding a suitable response to the Chinese economic and political challenge.

Secretary of State Mike Pompeo puts it another way, that the U.S. is a “force for good,” but it was former Secretary Madeleine Albright who expressed the fantasy best, stating that “…if we have to use force, it is because we are America; we are the indispensable nation. We stand tall and we see further than other countries into the future, and we see the danger here to all of us.” She also said that the deaths of 500,000 Iraqi children through U.S. imposed sanctions was “…a very hard choice, but the price — we think the price is worth it.” That is the basic credo of the liberal interventionists. Either way, the U.S. gets to make the decisions over life and death, which, since the GWOT began, have destroyed or otherwise compromised the lives of millions of people, mostly concentrated in Asia.

One aspect of the American heavy footprint that is little noted is the ruin of many formerly functioning countries that it brings with it. Iraq and Libya might have been dictatorships before the U.S. intervened, but they gave their people a higher standard of living and more security than has been the case ever since. Libya, destroyed by Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton, had the highest standard of living in Africa. Iraq is currently one of the world’s most corrupt countries, so corrupt that there have been massive street demonstrations recently against the government’s inability to do anything good for the its own people. Electricity and water supplies are, for example, less reliable than before the U.S. intervened seventeen years ago.

Add Afghanistan to the “most corrupt” list after 19 years of American tutelage and one comes up with a perfect trifecta of countries that have been ruined. In a more rational world, one might have hoped that at least one American politician might have stood up and admitted that we have screwed up royally and it is beyond time to close the overseas bases and bring our troops home. Well, actually one did so in explicit terms, but that was Tulsi Gabbard and she was marginalized as soon as she started her run. Alluding to how Washington’s gift to the world has been corruption would be to implicitly deny American Exceptionalism, which is a no-no.

The failures of the American foreign policy since George W. Bush have been accredited to the so-called neoconservatives, who successfully hijacked the Bush presidency. Paul Wolfowitz, Doug Feith, Scooter Libby and the merry crowd at the American Enterprise Institute had a major ally in Vice President Dick Cheney and were pretty much able to run wild, creating a casus belli for invading Iraq that was largely fabricated and which was completely against actual U.S. interests in the region. Apparently no one ever told Wolfie that Iraq was the Arab bulwark against Iranian ambitions and that Tehran would be the only major beneficiary in taking down Saddam Hussein. Since Iraq, the chameleonlike neocons have had a prominent voice in the mainstream media and have also played major roles in the shaping the foreign and national security policies of the presidencies that have followed George W. Bush.

Ironically, neocons mostly were critics of Donald Trump the candidate because he talked “nonsense” about ending “useless wars” but they have been trickling back into his administration since he has made it clear that he is not about to end anything and might in fact be planning to attack Iran and maybe even Venezuela. The thought of new wars, particularly against Israel’s enemy Iran, makes neocons salivate.

The disastrous American occupation of Iraq from 2003-2004 was mismanaged by something called the Coalition Provisional Authority (CPA), which might have been the most corrupt quasi-government body to be seen in recent history. At least $20 billion that belonged to the Iraqi people was wasted, together with hundreds of millions of U.S. taxpayer dollars. Exactly how many billions of additional dollars were squandered, stolen, given away, or simply lost will never be known because the deliberate decision by the CPA not to meter oil exports means that no one will ever know how much revenue was generated during 2003 and 2004.

Some of the corruption grew out of the misguided neoconservative agenda for Iraq, which meant that a serious reconstruction effort came second to doling out the spoils to the war’s most fervent supporters. The CPA brought in scores of bright, young true believers who were nearly universally unqualified. Many were recruited through the Heritage Foundation or American Enterprise Institute websites, where they had posted their résumés. They were paid six-figure salaries out of Iraqi funds, and most served in 90-day rotations before returning home with their war stories. One such volunteer was former White House Press Secretary Ari Fleischer’s older brother Michael who, though utterly unqualified, was named director of private-sector development for all of Iraq.

The $20 billion disbursed during the 15-month proconsulship of the CPA came from frozen and seized Iraqi assets held in the U.S. Most of the money was in the form of cash, flown into Iraq on C-130s in huge plastic shrink-wrapped pallets holding 40 “cashpaks,” each cashpak having $1.6 million in $100 bills. Twelve billion dollars moved that way between May 2003 and June 2004, drawn from the Iraqi accounts administered by the New York Federal Reserve Bank. The $100 bills weighed an estimated 363 tons.

Once in Iraq, there was virtually no accountability over how the money was spent. There was also considerable money “off the books,” including as much as $4 billion from illegal oil exports. Thus, the country was awash in unaccountable cash. British sources report that the CPA contracts that were not handed out to cronies were sold to the highest bidder, with bribes as high as $300,000 being demanded for particularly lucrative reconstruction contracts. The contracts were especially attractive because no work or results were necessarily expected in return.

Many of its staff, like Michael Fleischer, were selected for their political affiliations rather than their knowledge of the jobs they were supposed to perform and many of them were not surprisingly neocons. One of them has now resurfaced in a top Pentagon position. She is Simone Ledeen, daughter of leading neoconservative Michael Ledeen. Unable to communicate in Arabic and with no relevant experience or appropriate educational training, she nevertheless became in 2003 a senior advisor for northern Iraq at the Ministry of Finance in Baghdad.

Simone has now been appointed deputy assistant secretary of defense (DASD) for the Middle East, which is the principal position for shaping Pentagon policy for that region. Post 9/11, Ledeen’s leading neocon father Michael was the source of the expressions “creative destruction” and “total war” as relating to the Muslim Middle East, where “civilian lives cannot be the total war’s first priority … The purpose of total war is to permanently force your will onto another people.” He is also a noted Iranophobe, blaming numerous terrorist acts on that country even when such claims were ridiculous. He might also have been involved in the generation in Italy of the fabricated Iraq Niger uranium documents that contributed greatly to the march to war with Saddam.

Apparently Simone’s gene pool makes her qualified to lead the Pentagon into the Middle East, where she no doubt has views that make her compatible with the Trump/Pompeo current spin on the Iranian threat. The neocon Foundation for Defense of Democracies (FDD) gushed “Simone Ledeen has worked at the Pentagon & Treasury and at a major bank. Exactly what we should want for such a position.” Of course, FDD, the leading advocate of war with Iran, also wants someone who will green light destroying the Persians.

Ledeen, a Brandeis graduate with an MBA from an Italian university, worked in and out of government in various advisory capacities before joining Standard Chartered Bank. One of her more interesting roles was as an advisor to General Michael Flynn in Afghanistan at a time when Flynn was collaborating with her father on a book that eventually came out in 2016 entitled The Field of Fight: How We Can Win the Global War Against Radical Islam and its Allies. The book asserts that there is a global war going on in which “We face a working coalition that extends from North Korea and China to Russia, Iran, Syria, Cuba, Bolivia, Venezuela and Nicaragua.” The book predictably claims that Iran is at the center of what is an anti-American alliance.

The extent to which Simone has absorbed her father’s views and agrees with them can, of course, be questioned, but her appointment is yet another indication, together with the jobs previously given to John Bolton, Mike Pompeo and Elliot Abrams, that the Trump Administration is intent on pursuing a hardline aggressive policy in the Middle East and elsewhere. It is also an unfortunate indication that the neoconservatives, pronounced dead after the election of Trump, are back and resuming their drive to obtain the positions of power that will permit endless war, starting with Iran.

    The pandemic obviates any war with Iran because it will not be developing nuclear weapons any time soon, and Israel has less influence. American cannot afford it, and neither can Iran. Iran could only benefit from a rise in oil price, and it is too big for America anyway. All talk. Like the appointment of Bolton, the daughter of Ledeen is a way to exert pressure and through meat to the israel Lobby without actually doing anything. Trump did not attack Iran even when they put limpet mines of tankers and launched missiles that destroyed a Saudi refinery.

  2. ‘Maximum Pressure’ is being exerted on Trump.

    How was he leveraged to order the assassination of Iran’s general Qasem Soleimani?

    It’s all about manufacturing new threats to his presidency, and then offering to switch them off when he trades something the neocons want. The politics of extortion.

[My emphasis.] When, eventually, Garner confronted Rumsfeld, telling him: “There is still time to rectify this,” Rumsfeld refused to do so. And who was assisting Dr. Kissinger to program the new U.S. proconsul in Baghdad? Who was Paul Bremer’s primary contact at the Pentagon, overseeing the occupation from Washington, with the blessing of Don Rumsfeld? None other than the award winning hyperZionist zealot, Douglas “clean break” Feith, the man who had advised Likud icon, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to attack Iraq, Syria and Lebanon in 1996 and tear up the Oslo “peace process”. Feith is a protege of Richard Perle. Feith is on the Advisory Board of JINSA ,. Feith is a face card in the deck of the Institute for Advanced Strategic and Political Studies, headquartered in Jerusalem. The law office he founded in 1986, Feith & Zell, is based in Israel, catering to Jewish-American “€œsettlers”€ on the West Bank. “

    If nothing else, Bob Woodward’s last fat book on Iraq, State of Denial, has performed a valuable public service by ejecting the furtive Kissinger from the shadows. Woodward reports that vice president Dick Cheney confided to him (Woodward) in the summer of 2005: “I probably talk to Henry Kissinger more than I talk to anybody else. He just comes by and I guess at least once a month, Scooter [Libby] and I sit down with him.” [Page 406.] Woodward goes on to state: “The president also met privately with Kissinger every couple of months, making the former secretary the most regular and frequent outside adviser to Bush on foreign affairs.” https://www.takimag.com/article/the_kissinger_connection/

    We know who did what ,when and how .

  8. Regarding Madeleine Albright: “She also said that the deaths of 500,000 Iraqi children through U.S. imposed sanctions was “…a very hard choice, but the price — we think the price is worth it.” That is the basic credo of the liberal interventionists.”

    I think ‘liberal interventionist’ is a bit too weak for the ‘lovely’ Ms Albright and her (in)famous quote.

    Instead, let’s try, “That is the basic credo of psychopathically sadistic zionist monsters who exquisitely enjoy the thought of Arab children dying agonizingly slow deaths of preventable diseases and starvation.”

    Ah, yes. That’s a much more accurate assessment of the situation……..

    Washington, Middle East military (presence) policies are not formulated to safeguard the oil, that is a quite efficient deceit cultivated for the feeble-minded only, the real reason is defending greater Israel. Wasn’t the hidden support for apartheid in South Africa identical?

    Bragging statements were made about oil self-sufficiency from domestic fracking. In addition, Venezuela’s proximity of the world biggest oil supply deposits makes the depending on the ME oil fictional. The Washington policies of greater Israel are obviously camouflaged from the domestic audience by the needs of the ME oil. The hostile treatment of Venezuela is directly linked to these deceiving policies in the ME.

    911 can be looked into from many angles. Did the terrorism surface following the meticulous incubation of the Al Quiada and Israel together over the years ?

    Al Quiada claimed the attacks ( not Bin Laden – he might have been out of the loops ) immediately . Rumsfel dwas given that info soon after . Did Al Quiada want the attack on Saudi given its aversion to Saudi rulers and hatred for the prince and king ? Al Quiada was also against Saddam . Now what Israel promised them we dont know but Israel through its proxies took etc country over and thus the nation into war with poland to obliterate Egypt Jordan Saudi Arab as politically independent entity ( Power point presentation in Pentagon by one scoundrel whose only claim to any expertise was being an invitee of Perle ) .

    Israeli support for the rise of ISIS and nurturing of the “Syrian rebels “ do point to the fact that Israel has not given up on terrorism either as a religious or national or civilizational or as a secular creed . Its support for Balochistan terrorism in Iran and through India in Pakistan confirm this use of local grievances for its nefarious aims.

    PLO repeatedly broke the cells of terrorism with connection to Israel in 2000 and later .

    The reason Bush was not fully informed of the potential attacks was because the information pipeline was gated (and modified sometimes )by Jewish architects it’s of the wars against Iraq .

    Israelis were trying to attend a 2000 Islamic conference in Bangladesh with false passports . They were held and handed over to Israel by India. In Kashmir ,local muslim activist one time caught 3 Israeli way before 2000.
    Israel has been in bed with Kurdish terrorists for years .

    After 2001 many terrorism acts have been committed in EU ,US,Canada and Australia. None of those have been traced back to any links to Saudi administration ,ruling class ,or Saudi intelligence or finances. But ISIS has been . ISIS and Al Quiada also have fought against each many times .

    Nixon is recorded as saying, “Any settlement will have to be imposed by both the US and the Soviet Union”. Yet, as he had told the Russian ambassador to Washington, “I don’t want to anger the American Jews who hold important positions in the press, radio and television”.
    The Jewish lobby has enormous influence on Congress. Nixon wanted to wait until he had won his reelection and concluded the withdrawal of US forces from Vietnam and then he could face down the Jewish lobby. Later he told the ambassador, “I will deliver the Israelis”.
    In one of his final acts in office, he ordered a complete cutoff of assistance to Israel. It was not to be.

    If you don’t get right who Trump is you entangle yourself in much unnecessary confusion. Trump is, like his father before him, a Jew pretending in the interest of Jews to be a regular Christian American. In 1927 Frederick Trump was one of seven people in KKK cap and gown arrested in a near riot. A small clipping from the NYT came out during the campaign. But the next day the item was dropped, never to be mentioned again by the very people who went on to lay all sorts of charges against Trump, including being a fascist. Why was the KKK item dropped? Trump of course denied it vehemently, but the address in the clipping was dad’s.

    Why did his enemies let him get away with it when it could have yielded excellent results? Because tthe fight between Trump and his Democrat enemies was an internal battle among big Jews, usurers against Zionists. The fear behind the nuke deal was that Iran could if provoked raise the price of oil through its capabilities in the Strait of Hormuz to the point of imploding a quadrillion in derivatives, bringing down the Jew financial order. For the Rothschilds and their ilk, money outweighs Israel as closest to a true Jew’s heart. Trump, like Adelson and their honcho Ledeen, is on the other side.

    Frederick Christ Trump Jr, Trump’s elder brother who later drank himself to death, joined a Jewish fraternity at Lehigh and told his fellow Sammies that despite his father’s middle name (lotta laughs on that one) he was actually a German Jew. Those Sammies told the New York Times about it after their Jew got elected, and the Jewish Daily Forward also spread the good news. Always with a denial. Of course. But then these are the people who every year stand up to recite Kol Nidre, getting forgiven in advance for the upcoming year’s load of dishonesty.

    Flynn was presented to the Q-Anon sorts as Trump’s man in the intelligence agencies who eould get their criminality under control. You know, stuff like mudering Kennedy and carrying out 9/11. Remember Trump promising to release all the 9/11 secrets? But Flynn was a National Zionist, someone who had cast his lot with Israel and finally coauthored an anti-Iran screed with Ledeen. It wasn’t Russia Flynn was serving. It wss Israel. And Israel was working for Trump full time, behind the scenes.

    Trump was for decades extremely closely associated with Jeffrey Epstein. Read Katie Johnson’s court deposition about how the two of them raped her at the age of thirteen after fighting over who would get to bust the tied-down girl’s cherry. Trump won. It’s best to see the video with Katie telling her story. But it’s no longer available even on Vimeo. Rumor has it that Trump’s fake Christian parents were very close to Robert Maxwell (whom Trump eulogized) long before Maxwell hired Epstein for Mossad. Now forget for a moment all that pedophilia as venial in comparison to what went on in that Moloch temple on Epstein’s island. That was there for the torture and killing of children. (The point of such cruelty cannot be spelled out in the space of a comment.) How was Trump not involved? Trump only fell out with Epstein around 2004, over Trump screwing Epstein over a Florida land deal, and Trump pushing to get Epstein prosecuted on multiple counts of pedophilia before Epstein could expose Trump as a fraud.

    Now ask your question. How was Trump LEVERAGED to murder Soleimani? Are you kidding? Who would be leveraging THIS fucker?

    I remember it well. Bremer is the one who disbanded the Iraqi military. Gen.Garner, if left alone may have had a fighting chance to establish some kind of order because the majority of Iraqis did feel some relief to be done with Saddam. Bremer’s decision virtually guaranteed the eruption of the Sunni-Shia civil war that it should have been Job One to prevent.

    Trying to track down the decision tree on this monumental blunder (if it wasn’t deliberate sabotage) is a problem As I recall it was supposedly a memo that crossed Condi Rice’s desk at NSC and Bush either checked it off or never even saw it. Rumsfeld I believe denies knowing anything about it.

    We never got any kind of “commission” or anything on the Iraq war did we? Did Obama really sign an order sealing everything up for decades so no way to track the money?

    And all because HW Bush was such an imbecile he failed to take out Hussein after the first Gulf War. One of the most critical moments of post-USSR history, as first he said “what if the Iraqi people could rise up” (they did, the Shia rebellion) and then he pulled back and let the mass slaughter proceed. A neocon view of “stability”? Note also that the gush-fest hagiography by establishment apologist Meachem (“Destiny and Power”) ignores this shocking episode while extolling Bush’s “masterful” leadership in organizing that great Coalition against the terrible dictator.

    Reading Giraldi has become easy as pie. “Blah, blah, blah,” with some utter cultish nonsense about Trump . . . . until eventually near the end he reveals whatever narrative Brennan wants him to Transmission Belt.

    One of her more interesting roles was as an advisor to General Michael Flynn in Afghanistan at a time when Flynn was collaborating with her father . . .

    Ah yes, with all the revelations in the news at this very moment about Flynn, Giraldi is squeaking about his ties to Simone Ledeen!

    If that doesn’t insult your intelligence then you’re immune to such slights.

    Don’t get me wrong, I cherish these autonomic tells. They should regularly remind you how much of a danger America’s Beria continues to be.

    “But, but, what about Simone Ledeen!”

    Apply some common sense. Those in the best position to know, like Giraldi, have remained at best Radio Silent throughout the rise of Brennan to the pinnacle of power leading figurehead Obama around by the nose. Publicly debasing President Obama and the Office of the Presidency with a NYT interview revealing that Brennan made weekly trips to the Oval Office, ordering the POTUS to pick from pictures who to drone strike like he was some sort of child.

    My point is simple and ineluctable, whatever our demerits, our great republic is supposed to weed out psychopaths like Brennan long before they get as close as he has to destroying the whole shebang.

    Unable to communicate in Arabic and with no relevant experience or appropriate educational training

    Seems rather typical of those making policy, not knowing much about the area they’re assigned to. If a person did know Arabic and had an understanding of the culture they wouldn’t get hired as they’d be viewed with suspicion, suspected of being sympathetic to Middle Easterners. How and why these neocons can come back into government is puzzling and one wonders who within the establishment is backing them. Judging by the quotes her father certainly seems deranged and not someone to be allowed anywhere near any policy making positions.
    Flynn also seems to be a dolt what with his ‘worldwide war against radical Islam’. Someone should clue him in that much of this radical Islam has been created and stoked by the US who hyped up radical Islam, recruiting and arming them to fight the Russians in Afghanistan. Bin Laden was there, remember? Flynn, a general, is unaware of this? Islamic jihadists are America’s Foreign Legion and have been used all over the Muslim world, most recently in Syria. Does this portend war with Iran? Possibly, but perhaps Trump wouldn’t want to go it alone but would want the financial support of other countries. They’ve probably war-gamed it to death and found it to be a loser.

    Whether it was Obama, doing the bidding of his Mahometan buds in Iran or Trump doing the bidding of his Zionist buds in Israel, it is always war for whatever in hell slogan the tank tanks can come up with to sell the ideas of war to Americans who are, generally, sickened by the idea of perpetual war for perpetual peace.

    Your vote has no persuasive power. Period.

    That is because the internationalists have more influence over what The POTUS decides to do than the scores of millions of people who voted for him

  36. Donald Trump’s father and grandfather were connected to Jewish organized crime. Donald Trump first got big on Twitter promoting the “birther” conspiracy theories about Obama which Trump was getting from the Israeli Jew Orly Taitz. These conspiracy theories were designed to demonize Obama for trying to end the sanctions on Iran and prevent a war.

    Zionist Jews were quite aware that Donald Trump was their guy – he has always been consistently popular in Israel. Zionist Jews knew that Donald Trump could give them everything they wanted: takeover all of Jerusalem, annex the Golan Heights, and eventually annex Palestine and ethnically cleanse the Palestinians – all going on right now with the support of Trump and Jared Kushner’s hand-picked Mike Pompeo.

    Hey, Trump fans – Trump DID in fact “drain the swamp.” He (well, Jared Kushner) fired anyone who dared to oppose anything Israel wanted and replaced them with yes-men Zionist flunkies.

    How much longer till the MAGA-tard realize they were tricked?

Every Empire sought to rule the world and committed a long list of atrocities in the process. “The empire on which the sun never sets”, in reference to the British Empire (the one currently still ruling the world), comes from Xerxes’ “We shall extend the Persian territory as far as God’s heaven reaches. The sun will then shine on no land beyond our borders.” as he invaded Greece.

    This is almost certainly false and confusing the issue:

    ” In 1927 Frederick Trump was one of seven people in KKK cap and gown arrested in a near riot.”

    Donald Trump’s father was arrested during a riot at a Klan rally – but he almost certainly wasn’t “in KKK cap and gown” – it’s far more likely he was the one rioting AGAINST the Klan, as a member of the Jewish “Anti-fascist” terrorist group, which was a Jewish Communist group then in the early stages.

    Trump’s uncle was a member of a Jewish fraternity and often claimed that his father was Jewish, but that is probably false. Trump’s grandfather supposedly owned brothels.

    Consider: what kind of people own brothels, houses of prostitution, basically, human trafficking? Organized crime.

    Trump isn’t Jewish, Trump’s father wasn’t Jewish and neither was his grandfather. What Trump and his family is, is non-Jewish members of Jewish organized crime.

    Why confuse the issue? Half of Trump’s children and grandchildren are now either Jewish, Israelis, or married to Jews and Israelis.

    Trump and his entire family going back to his grandfather, are shabbos goyim.

    Quite right. I should have written that sentence differently in that by “like Brennan,” I meant an individual allowed to rise by obtaining compromising information on everyone, most especially his intelligence colleagues.

    Our system abhors such an arrogation of power or at least it used to. Not to put too fine a point on it but that’s what happens when you construct a surveillance state and then turn it over to filth like Brennan.

    This really isn’t very complicated. It’s utterly untenable in our great republic to have the former CIA Director shouting every other day that the duly elected POTUS is treasonous and much be removed from office by any means necessary.

    It’s impossible to overstate how serious this situation is when those who are needed on the side of our republic and legitimate constitutional authority are distracting with squeaks about Michael Ledeen’s daughter no less.

    I’m not laying this all at Brennan’s door. Like Beria, his presence at the pinnacle of power was more symptom than cause. He’s no evil genius which, when you think about it, makes the continued craven obedience to him by Democrats, RINO Republicans, Allied Media and, yes, most who were in the IC, that much more pathetic.

    What is this pointless excitement about communism that misinformed Americans suffer from:

    Zionism is communism, read the book, The Controversy of Zion by Douglas Reed, can be had on amazon.

    Israel started with strong socialist leanings: the German Jews who arrived were fairly left-leaning. There’s a big distinction between socialism – Canada, Germany, France and all of Scandinavia to name just a few of the big hitters – and communism. Even China is only nominally socialist at this point, as so much of industry is in private hands. China is a clear mixed economy with a powerful single party.

    The USA is also a mixed-economy (what else does one call all the state-subsidies to the MIC and to banks/insurers since 2008) and a single party system (there’s no real change in policy between Republicans and Democrats, they are both advocates for more military and an aggressive foreign policy, with never-ending largess for corporations. All national US politicians appear to be on the take (they call it lobbying for the official money and the rest goes into numbered bank accounts in Bermuda or the British Virgin Islands).

    Both the USA and China have active bio-weapons programs: China only has a few labs, all in China, while the USA has dozens scattered across the globe, often at the borders of their “adversaries”.

    Both the USA and China actively monitor their citizens private online communication and keep enormous databases with social credit scores. The USA uses euphemisms like “no-fly list” for their social credit blacklists.

    Based on their similarities, I’m having some trouble distinguishing between communist China and capitalist America.

    This shallow derogatory “communist” epithet should never cross the lips of an educated man or woman.

    PS. To find a genuinely capitalist economy one might have to go as far afield as Russia or Brazil. I jest, but it’s quite probable that Russia is effectively a better representative of capitalism than the United States in strictly economic terms. V.V. Putin runs a pretty tight economic ship, expecting large companies to pay their own way.

    Why George HW Busch did not pursue Saddam Hussein till the end in 1991?

    A puzzling question with many possible answers.

    First you have to take into consideration the wishes of the Saudis who wanted Saddam’s wings clipped but never wanted to see the Iraqi Baathist regime totally destroyed for fear that the Shiites would take over Iraq the way it happened after the Second Gulf War which transformed Iraq from a bulwark of resistance to Persian infiltration of the Middle East to a conduit.

    Second you have to factor in the interests of big oil companies who had no interest in seeing total chaos in Iraq with its extractive potential destroyed by internal chaos.

    Third you have to keep the Arabs at loggerheads by keeping a secularist Iraqi Baathist regime in a permanent state of hostility with feudal Arab Gulf monarchies and with the rival Syrian Baathist regime.

    So why did boy Busch go for the big kill? Well, lo and behold, to serve Israeli interests, and it was done in a way that was detrimental to American and Iraqi interests. Let us remember that while the American invading troops cordoned off the Ministry of Oil in Baghdad, they let the looters loose on the Baghdad museum, thereby wasting many archeological treasures of the cradle of civilisation. Then Zionist agent Bremer dissolved the Iraqi army thereby swelling the ranks of Iraqi resistance. Then during the Daesh American Zionist inspired takeover of Iraq in 2014, more archeological treasures were destroyed thereby erasing invaluable proof of many historic developments in Iraq and the Middle East. So, cui bono? The answer is very simple: Greater Israel, for such a development to happen requires not only the destruction of the current order, but also the spreading of many lies that could very well be disproved by Iraqi archeology.

    Despite all the American looting of Iraqi oil resources, the invasion of Iraq has turned out a very poor investment for the American taxpayer. Before the USA got involved in Iraq, the Americans had a clear advantage over traditional Western colonisers of the Middle East, namely the British and the French, as the US had not had its hands tainted with Middle Eastern or Muslim blood. Losing this advantage after the Iraq wars wasted a big leverage to American aspirations to mould the Middle East in an advantageous way to American interests, all for the sake of serving Israeli interests.

The Germanic giants from the forests of the north were “blood from their blood and spirit from their spirit12” and, as such, “the true heir of the Romans and of the Greeks13”. In very ancient times, Germanic tribes had come from the north to colonize the south. They settled down in Greece and Rome, enjoying the benefits of cultural photosynthesis, thanks to the sun and mild climate of the Mediterranean. While their cousins who had stayed in the north still ate raw meat and lived in caverns, the Germans of the South―that is to say, the Greeks and the Romans―ate healthy food and created civilisation. They then left testimonies of their genius in immaculate and pristine temples that were currently used, in the 19th century, to demonstrate the superiority of white mankind. This idea was borrowed by Chamberlain from many racist historians and theoreticians of the time. To prove the excellence of Germanic blood, scientists and race specialists had argued, since the 1830’s, that every light came from the North, and not from the East. This is summed up by Chamberlain who, contrary to Hegel who wrote “Ex oriente lux”, pretends that “Ex septentrione lux”: the beacon of civilization lies in the north with the white Germanic race.

    Hence why we don’t hear much about the Egyptian and Canaanite-Phoenician influence in the development of the Western World:

    The Aryan model, an alternative theory about the development of the ancient Greeks, first appeared in the first half of the nineteenth century. It denied any influence of Egyptian settlements and expressed doubt about a role for the Phoenicians. An extreme version of this model was propounded during the height of anti-Semitism in Europe in the 1890s, and then in the 1920s and 1930s; this particular explanation denied even the Phoenician cultural influence.” According to the Aryan model, there had been an invasion from the north, an invasion not described by ancient writers, which had overcome the existing pre-Hellenic culture. Greek civilization was seen as the result of the mixture of the Indo-European speaking Hellenes and the older peoples over whom they ruled.

    — “The Myth of Greek Ethnic ‘Purity’ Macedonia and Greece”, John Shea

    Who knows, maybe we’ll hear/read one day that the Eugenic ruling class the world today descent from the Canaanites, Egyptians, Persians, Mesopotamians and who not. After all, they also believe to be the real descendants of the Jewish “Lost Tribes” (see British Israelism). Can’t make this much stuff up; really.

Here’s what a lot of publications carried, from a TV interview and from her book:

    …she writes, in a description of alleged events that Daniels has disclosed previously but which in the book are rendered with new and lurid detail. She describes Trump’s penis as “smaller than average” but “not freakishly small”.

    It was only some twenty five years ago that I watched on BBC a documentary about the link between different civilisations where the Western researcher presented convincing proof about how the Hellenic civilisation borrowed extensively from the Indian, the Egyptian and the Phoenician civilisations and ended up creating such synergy that the Greeks surpassed all of their three masters in the realm of philosophy, science and technology and the arts. It was a nice try by Arian supremacists to deny any Eastern influence on Western culture but the worrisome fact is, had the National Socialists prevailed militarily and unified Europe under their aegis, they would have imposed their version of history on future generations with the strategy of the lie being repeated enough to become truth. Unfortunately, the Western societies fell under the spell of what is an infinitely worse influence, namely that of Zionist and by association elitist ( as measured by wealth accumulation), with political correctness, censorship and subjectivism reversing history studies from fact based research, of the David Irving type, towards sound conclusions into declared theories backed by any kind of fact falsification and suppression of dissenting views through character assassination, persecution, statue demolition and marginalisation.

    Yet in Europe, it is Greece that is poor and Anglo-Celtics who are affluent.

    Why do Americans not consider the cost of war or look back at the nineties when America had a higher living standard and realize the trillions of dollars of money lost in the wars have turned the US into a third world country.

    There is welfare and soup kitchens and wasn’t this better for Jessica Lynch than the rape and fear she suffered as a captive of Iraqis?
