This action might not be possible to undo. Are you sure you want to continue?
Syria is still important to discuss and mention. The Washington consensus could call for an all-out war with Syria. The conflict continues. Dozens or more die daily in it. The Syrian forces outmatch the Western backed death squad terrorists. These terrorists are not true rebels. They are lawless invaders and hired killers sent to harm the Syrian people. Many of these U.S. proxy fighters are imported from dozens of nations. They are fighting against Syrian independence. Assad's military outguns and outflanks Washington's shock troops. There are reinforcements coming into Syria. Syria could be the next Libya or Libya 2.0. Now, Russia wants a September international peace conference, which should occur. It was at first planned for June. Washington still prioritizes war. Its reactionaries spurn peace. Last year's conference failed. Peace is hard to come by in this situation. European Council President Herman Van Rompuy said the following words: "A military solution to the crisis is impossible. (T)he solution is only diplomatic.” The conflict can end if Washington stops funding proxy terrorists. The White House is involved with the Syrian civil war. The White House can end it. Joint Chief Chairman Martin Dempsey said that he provided the President with options for the use of force. He said the following words: “(I)t would be inappropriate for me to try to influence the decision with me rendering an opinion in public about what kind of force we should use.” John McCain is very hawkish and of course he wants to have a possible military intervention from the West into Syria. He wants a no fly zone implemented, he wanted more arms sent to the terrorists, and there are weapons sent to the rebels now. These actions are illegal without Security Council authorization. This is meddling in Syria's political, economically, and military affairs. These acts harm international law. The military commanders have asked the White House for options. Even the so-called liberal Senator Carl Levin wants Syria to be bombed. He wants Obama to attack airfields, airplanes, and massed artillery. He supports the terrorist insurgency. Many other Democrats love this action. The anti-Assad forces are fighting each other. Extremist Al Nusra insurgents are clashing with the Free Syria Army elements. On July 19, Russia Today headlined “Al Qaeda’s planned emirate in Syria is West’s own doing.” Most Syrians want a secular state. So, Al-Qaeda wants an
evil theocracy while the people of Syria want a secular state. So, the extremists want the Western forces to more militarily intervene in Syria. America loves to fight smaller nations. We know that NSA spying undermines civil liberties. Senator Carl Levin and Angus King are still hawkish against Syria. We know that Washington directly aids Al-Qaeda and other extremist groups. Now, I disagree with a Western military strike in Syria or any U.S. military intervention in Syria. In the final analysis, we need to have a political solution to the Syrian civil war. The President of the United States and Secretary of State John Kerry want military action in Syria in the form of missile strikes against infrastructure of the Syrian government. This action can cause World War III. I find myself in agreement with Rand Paul and others on this issue. In a Joint US-UK leaked intelligence document back in 1957, the CIA and the SIS wanted to stage disturbances in Syria as a means to control the region more. Syria is a strategic area of the Middle East and that is why the Western elite want to control it (and place a puppet regime there in replace of Al-Assad). We know about the boarder US-NATO-Israeli military agenda in the region. They want to act as a bulwark against Iran, Russia, and China. There is a fight for the Middle Eastern and Central Asian oil reserves including strategic oil and gas pipelines. The neo-cons and the Western elite have been involved in a regional political destabilization process (via the rebels and token political organizations) all over the Middle East, North Africa, sub-Saharan Africa, and Central Asia. There has been failures made by the U.S. sponsored Al Qaeda insurgency in Syria that was launched back in March 2011. They have worked with mercenary forces as well. This insurgency has been funded and supported by Turkey, Saudi Arabia, Qatar, and Israel. Now, the stage is set for a conventional theater war involving the deployment of air force too. The U.S. and its allies never had conclusive evidence of claiming that the Assad regime used Sarin gas against its own population. Yet, we do have conclusive evidence that the rebels have not only killed Christians, Shias, Sunnis, etc. We have total conclusive evidence that the rebels have used chemical weapons against civilians in Syria and the rebels have done war crimes before. Some view this situation as similar to the Kosovo model (where NATO used organized crime groups and terrorists with links to Al-Qaeda as a means to break up Yugoslavia. The Kosovo Liberation Army was used it was a terrorist group). There has been no conclusive evidence that the attack was carried out on Assad's order even admitted by the AP: "...An intercept of Syrian military officials discussing the strike was among low-level staff, with no direct evidence tying the attack back to an Assad insider or even a senior Syrian commander, the officials said...So while Secretary of State John Kerry said Monday that links between the attack and the Assad government are “undeniable,” U.S. intelligence officials are not so certain that the suspected chemical attack was carried out on Assad’s orders, or even completely sure it was carried out by government forces, the officials said..." (AP, August 29, 2013). The war on terror carried out by the US/NATO military arm extends into Africa, Central Asia, and throughout the Earth. If the strikes occur in Syria, it could expand the Syrian conflict into a regional war. Remember, America, Turkey, Israel, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, etc. are allied in their agenda of trying to get regime change in Syria. Russia and Iran are military allies of Syria. Recent reports suggest that a cyber-warfare operation has been launched. Allied Special Forces are reported to have entered Syrian territory from Jordan and Turkey. British Special Forces are reported to be searching for Syrian air defense systems “in readiness for Allied strikes." Many Israelis are having gas masks, because of fears of a Syrian reprisal to a Western attack. We are in a crossroads since we have complex war theaters of Afghanistan/Pakistan, Iraq, Palestine, and Libya. There are other wars as well. Such a strike can start the beginnings of WWIII. The civilian deaths made by the rebels are ignored by the mainstream media and the Western elite as an excuse to justify imperialism on the faux guise of "humanitarian" grounds. We know that the MI6, the CIA, and Mossad including Western Special Forces have integrated with the rebel forces from the start. An air campaign including a “no fly zone” directed against Syria has been envisaged since late 2011, largely in view of the failures underlying the US-NATO covert war in support of opposition rebels, integrated by trained mercenaries. So, NATO had secret plans for a no fly zone in Syria since 2011. Syria has an advance Russian S-300 air defense system. Russian technical advisers have been in Syria since November 2011 to assist Syrians to set up an array of S-300 missiles. The weapons attack issue has come in the midst of the defeat of the U.S. sponsored Al Nusrah terrorist brigades by government forces. While there is absolutely no evidence of the Syrian government having used chemical weapons against its population, there is evidence that the CIA sponsored Al Qaeda affiliated rebels have chemical weapons in their possession and that they are being trained by Western Special Forces in the use of chemical weapons by Western Special Forces. The
United Nations Independent Mission confirms that Rebel Forces Are in Possession of Sarin Nerve Gas. The UN confirmed that rebel forces have used the nerve agent sarin according to one of its lead investigators. The mainstream media has been used in a propaganda campaign to claim that Syria is using chemical weapons attacks against civilians. Many Western establishment liberals have supported the NATO sponsored intervention. Some are the same ones who agreed with the wicked NATO intervention in Libya. They casually describe the US sponsored Al Qaeda affiliated rebels (which are on the State Department list of terrorist organizations) as “revolutionaries” comparable to the landless movement in Brazil and the Zapatistas in the Chiapas region of Mexico. The reality is that US/NATO death squads (who were trained and recruited in Saudi Arabia, Qatar, and Turkey) are harming Syrian human beings. The ironic thing is that faux progressives advocating imperialism are similar to a Neocon Open Letter to President Barack Obama published in the Weekly Standard signed by Elliott Abrams, Paul Berman, Eliot A. Cohen, Robert Kagan, William Kristol, Bernard-Henri Levy, Karl Rove, among others (that called for a military intervention against Syria). Many human beings are opposed to a military strike. Not to mention that the rebels are beheading civilians. These rebels are not freedom fighters. They are terrorists plain and simple. There should be a peaceful settlement to end the Syrian civil war. The war mongering in Syria remains. The G20 summit in St. Petersburg will soon pass. U.S. President Barack Obama continues to outline his case for a military strike in Syria. He claims to be the moral conscience of the world and the upholder of international law. Yet, he is trying to be the spokesman for the act of trying to justify unprovoked and illegal military strikes of aggression against Syria. The White House believes that the USA has the right to attack another nation even if neither it nor its allies face imminent attack (and if military action has not been sanctioned by the United Nations). Regardless of how you feel about the U.N., this is a direct repudiation of the United Nations Charter. That charter defines unilateral and unprovoked actions as criminal act of military aggression. If a military strike comes about, it will be another example of defiance of the post-World War II framework of international law (it is about the United States wanting to attack any country that it sees fit to do so). Explaining his decision to seek authorization for the use of military force against Syria from the US Congress, Obama said, “I could not honestly claim that the threat posed by Assad’s use of chemical weapons on innocent civilians and women and children posed an imminent, direct threat to the United States… I could not say that it was immediately directly going to have an impact on our allies.” At another point he said, “It is my view… that given Security Council paralysis on this issue, if we are serious about upholding a ban on chemical weapons use, then an international response is required and that will not come through Security Council action.” Even the UN Security Council has placed its stamp of approval on many immoral wars like the recently US/NATO assault in Libya from March to October of 2011. Its members are divided on the question on what to do about Syria. We know that militarism done by Washington has been based on brazen lies. There is no evidence that the use of chemical weapons was used by the Syrian regime (in the August 2013 attack) as a means to kill innocent human life. Even the UN inspectors had arrived in Damascus at Syria's invitation to investigate previous claims of chemical weapons attacks. Many of the rebels are linked to al-Qaeda terrorists. The rebels are in the brink of defeat, so now some want a military strike against the Syrian government. Many of the rebels have killed innocent human life and some accuse the rebels of having chemical weapons and being prepared to use them. The claim that it will be, as Obama repeated Friday was that these U.S. military strikes would be “limited and proportionate.” In this connection, it is worthwhile citing an article posted September 3 on the Foreign Policy web site by Bruce Ackerman, a well-known authority on US constitutional law and professor at Yale University. Bruce wrote that the words in the draft of authorization for use of military force has language that can be used for extensive military involvement since it says that the President can act to deter the use or proliferation of chemical or other weapons of mass destruction (to protect American allies and partners). This is an endorsement of military intervention throughout the Middle East and beyond. Washington cannot, moreover, conceal its own record of violating the “international norms” that Obama claims to be defending—from the nuclear holocaust of Hiroshima and Nagasaki, to the saturation use of napalm and Agent Orange in Vietnam, to US support for Saddam Hussein’s use of chemical weapons against Iran in the 1980s, to the use of depleted uranium and white phosphorus in Iraq. The Bush administration repudiated the Geneva Conventions in relation to prisoners captured in the so-called “war on terror,” opening the way for torture, indefinite detention, rendition, and
drone assassinations—all of which have been continued and expanded under Obama. So, evil militarism should not happen. We should fight austerity, war, and the destruction of our democratic rights. We have the right to have political mobilization to seek freedom for all.
A SPECIAL NOTE: In our generation, we know about reactionaries and wicked Republicans. I have exposed these reactionaries for years. They include human beings like Rush Limbaugh, Sean Hannity Glen Beck, Laura Ingraham, Ted Nugent, Bill O'Reilly, etc. They are dead wrong on numerous domestic and foreign policy issues. We know this and we know the reactionaries’ sick agendas in the world presently. Now, it is clear that we should also expose counterfeit progressives as well. These are also called Left Gatekeepers. They are used by the establishment as a means to try to gear folks into the Democratic Party establishment (and they believe that the system needs just reform to change
without revolutionary, outright changes to the system in general. Radical Structural and institutional changes must occur in order for us to be really free indeed). In history, we know
of the genuine progressives or independent freedom lovers then and now. They include the names of Fred Hampton, Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., Fannie Lou Hamer, Betty Shabazz, President Franklin D. Roosevelt (before he died), Malcolm X, Gloria Richardson, Betty Shabbaz, Kwame Ture, Paul Robeson, Henry Wallace (for a time), John Henrik Clarke, and others. The counterfeit progressives are those who consciously or unconsciously assist cartel-capitalists as a means to harm workers worldwide. It is mainstream capitalism (in its various forms) that is responsible for the Maafa, the extermination of Native Americans, ecological terrorism, and the other forms of harm done to humans worldwide. This is not just me writing these words. One of the greatest speeches of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. was when he was in Chicago for the National Conference for New Politics in August 31, 1967. This was one of his most radical speeches that he gave in his life. Dr. King said the following during this speech: “…It is this moral lag in our thing-oriented society that blinds us to the human reality around us and encourages us in the greed and exploitation which creates the sector of poverty in the midst of wealth. Again we have diluted ourselves into believing the myth that Capitalism grew and prospered out of the Protestant ethic of hardwork and sacrifice, the fact is that Capitalism was built on the exploitation and suffering of black slaves and continues to thrive on the exploitation of the poor – both black and white, both here and abroad… The time has come for America to
face the inevitable choice between materialism and humanism. We must devote at least as much to our children’s education and the health of the poor as we do to the care of our automobiles and the building of beautiful, impressive hotels. We must also realize that the problems of racial injustice and economic injustice cannot be solved without a radical redistribution of political and economic power… And we say to our nation tonight, we say to our Government, we even say to our FBI, we will not be harassed, we will not make a butchery of our conscious, we will not be intimidated and we will be heard.”
President Barack Obama’s Historic Speech on Syria (in September 10, 2013)
President Barack Obama gave a historic speech on Syria. He said that the military strikes are possible if demands are not met. Many extremists still want to have war with Syria. Even the President had to rightly admit that America can't militarily intervene in every conflict in the world as a means to solve problems. It is better to solve international problems with diplomacy and other peaceful methods not full scale aggressive warfare. He spoke about Syria and foreign policy in general for 15 minutes. He wanted to form UN negotiations emerging from a Russian-Syrian offer to destroy Syria's chemical weapons as a political framework for launching a war. This has been in defiance of international law and the mass popular opposition in the United States. He repeated the claim that the Syrian government of Bashar Al-Assad was responsible for the chemical weapons attack on August 21. There is no conclusive evidence for that assumption. The assertion is unsubstantiated. The lurid images of the victims are tragic and should be sympathized though. A military strike in Syria will cause disastrous consequences for the human beings in the Middle East not just in Syria. Obama claimed that the strikes will be limited, but harming Assad's capabilities is beyond limited, especially if large sections of the Syrian military including other institutions are harmed. “The United States military doesn’t do pin pricks,” he added. The resolution authorizing force in Syria via the U.S. Congress will be difficult to pass. The President wanted negotiations over the Syrian and Russian offer to turn over Syria's chemical weapons to international monitors and then destroy them. Obama said he had asked Congress to “postpone a vote to authorize the use of force, while we pursue the diplomatic path.” He explained, “I’ve spoken to the leaders of two of our closest allies—France and the United Kingdom—and we will work together in consultation with Russia and China to put forward a resolution at the UN Security Council requiring Assad to give up his chemical weapons and to ultimately destroy them under international control … Meanwhile, I’ve ordered our military to maintain their current posture to keep the pressure on Assad and to be in a position to respond if diplomacy fails.” The French governments want to have an UN resolution to allow military action against Syria as an enforcement mechanism. Russian President Vladimir Putin insisted that an UN resolution should not authorize military action against Syria. Russia later cancelled an UN Security Council meeting it had called for Tuesday. He
said that the U.S. military was standing by to launch air strikes at a moment's notice. The warships in the Mediterranean would maintain their current posture to keep the pressure on Assad. If diplomacy fails, the White House is prepared to strike Syria. If Washington wants to stop Syria from using chemical weapons, why it is continuing to press for strikes after the Syrian government has pledged to give them up. America ironically is supporting opposition militias whom some have ties to Al-Qaeda. AlQaeda linked forced led the U.S. backed opposition militias. They are fighting the Syrian army and these forces are facing defeat. They will profit from an U.S. attack aimed at disabling and destroying the Syrian military. So, this relates to the fact that Washington claiming to be fighting a global war on terror against Al Qaeda is politically fraudulent. If such a strike comes about, it can cause a regional confrontation in the Middle East (with Assad being allied with Iran and Russia). The militias are funded by U.S., European, and Middle Eastern allies. In 2003, we were told lies about weapons of mass destruction in Iraq. Even the President had to admit the following: “The Assad regime does not have the ability to seriously threaten our military … Neither Assad nor his allies have any interest in escalation that would lead to his demise.” Yet this demonstrates precisely that Syria poses no danger to US security, and that Obama’s pretext for war is a fraud and the planned war is illegal. The military industrial complex has lied before and they continue to lie now. The political establishment, some in the mainstream media, etc. is wrong to advance the agenda of possible military strikes in Syria. There is the discussion about an UN resolution to handle the Syrian crisis as it deals with chemical weapons. We will see what the future holds.
The agenda behind the possible U.S. military strike on Syria is known now. Many elites want Syrian pipelines and their strategic resources. We know that America started to support the Syrian opposition years before any uprising had occurred there. 4-Star General Wesley Clark was told – right after 9/11 – that Pentagon officials planned to attack 7 countries in 5 years … including Iraq, Libya and Syria. General Wesley Clark admitted these words in his following words: "...About ten days after 9/11, I went through the Pentagon and I saw Secretary Rumsfeld and Deputy Secretary Wolfowitz. I went downstairs just to say hello to some of the people on the Joint Staff who used to work for me, and one of the generals called me in. He said, “Sir, you’ve got to come in and talk to me a second.” I said, “Well, you’re too busy.” He said, “No, no.” He says, “We’ve made the decision we’re going to war with Iraq.” This was on or about the 20th of September...So I came back to see him a few weeks later, and by that time we were bombing in Afghanistan. I said, “Are we still going to war with Iraq?” And he said, “Oh, it’s worse than that.” He reached over on his desk. He picked up a piece of paper. And he said, “I just got this down from upstairs” — meaning the Secretary of Defense’s office — “today.” And he said, “This is a memo that describes how we’re going to take out seven countries in five years, starting with Iraq, and then Syria, Lebanon, Libya, Somalia, Sudan and, finishing off, Iran.” Wesley Clark admitted that the planning for regime change in Syria and 6 other countries was started by 1991 at the latest. He or Clark admitted that he had a meeting with Paul Wolfowitz (he was the
Undersecretary of Defense for Policy or the number 3 position at the Pentagon). Wesley Clark asked Wolfowitz about if he happy with performance of the troops in Desert Storm. Wolfowitz told him the following: "...Yeah, but not really, because the truth is we should have gotten rid of Saddam Hussein, and we didn’t … But one thing we did learn [from the Persian Gulf War] is that we can use our military in the region – in the Middle East – and the Soviets won’t stop us. And we’ve got about 5 or 10 years to clean up those old Soviet client regimes – Syria, Iran, Iraq – before the next great superpower comes on to challenge us.” We know that the U.S. and British governments considered using a false flag attack 50 years ago to topple the Syrian regime. We know that many of the Syrian rebels are terrorists and filled with other hardliners. We know that a top U.S. military commander said that an attack would be both risky and expensive (and that he can't even say why we'd go to war with Syria). His name is General Martin Dempsey (or the Joint Chiefs Chairman). Many troops and military officers and Pentagon war planners oppose an attack on Syria. The U.S. and Britain have used chemical weapons in the last 10 years and they supported the largest chemical weapons attack in history, but they cannot find conclusive evidence that the Syrian government used chemical weapons in the August attack. Also, an attack on Syria is an act of war being a violation of international law point, blank, period. This attack will grow corporate interests not us the people collectively at all. We know that many fighters joining al Nusra came from abroad including those from the recently decimated Libya (where a significant arsenal of chemical weapons have fallen into the hands of a sectarian extremist government, which is funding and arming terrorists in Syria). The Republican Senator John McCain has, for several years, been supporting and mingling with Al Qaeda commanders in the field in blatant violation of international law as well as in breach of US anti-terrorism legislation. One of the rebels’ leading figures was Abdel Hakim Belhaj (picture below), a member of the defunct Libyan Islamic Fighting Group LIFG), a terrorist organization on both the UN Security Council and the US State Department lists. It is sick for some to invoke dead children as a means to justify militarism. Making Syria a puppet client state of the West including their sellout Gulf states is in league with corporate financier interests.
The Empire has blinked. There is still the wicked war on terrorism after the U.S. deal with Syria. The deal was brokered by Russia and America. Twelve years since the atrocity of 9/11 (which many call it a false flag operation), we are still not free. Since 9/11, we have seen the AngloAmerican empire do atrocities and manufacture leis as a means to destroy nation after nation. We witness the endless global war on terror or the GWOT. We have seen the attempted conquest of Afghanistan. That was the first stage. The GWOT and the lies about weapons of mass destruction or WMD led to the toppling and seizure of Iraq and beyond. Then, there were the continuous military provocations and the CIA-led regime changes in Libya and Egypt. We know that Syria and Iran have been systematically destabilized. This agenda of war mongering continues. Central Asia and the Middle East have experienced chaos. Nations have been gutted. The Empire is seeking to have petro-economic domination of the world's resources including lasting geo-strategic control. Desperate military violence and brute force did not change the fact that folks are still fighting for recoverable oil and gas. The days of mainstream capitalism are coming to an end. The economy in the world is still struggling. We have internal stress and the U.S. government has issues with economy. Much of mainstream society is morally bankrupt. The war on terrorism is evil and it has fallen apart. The truth is known and more human beings are waking up about the truth. The CIA still struggles with its own Al-Qaeda assets. Al-Qaeda struggles with other Al-Qaeda. The lie about the war on terrorism had become obvious to all of us. We see the Al-Qaeda military intelligence assets being employed in the world since the end of the Cold War. These very assets and propaganda instruments were used in 9/11. So, CIA funded assets helped to engineer the 9/11 inside job. Many troops now are even refusing to fight for Al-Qaeda in Syria. The current White House has been exposed as a continuation of the Bush/Cheney machine. Some of the policies of the current administration in some of its foreign policies are worse than policies under the Bush years. The American populace is mostly sick of war. We have the malaise that derailed the Vietnam War. Yet, both Democrats and Republicans
seek warfare and other forms of wicked militarism in society. Syria is in danger. Syria could be attacked for real next year. The West wants the Assad government to end and be replaced with a puppet regime. The West and their CIA/Al-Qaeda rebels have failed in causing regime change in Syria now. There is no evidence that Syria have utilized mass chemical weapons in the recent August attack. The negotiations brokered by Russia could delay a military strike. Given that Russia is the Anglo-American empire’s main long-term adversary (along with China) for final global dominance, Russian involvement is proof that the Anglo-American empire’s hand is not only weak, but that its long-term agenda is meeting with resistance that did not exist a decade ago. Simply put, they are being outhustled. The West wants Syria to destroy its entire chemical weapons stockpile. The rebels' war crimes against civilians in Syria have been heavily ignored by most of the mainstream media. A disarmed and politically weakened Syria has been the goal of the West (with possible partition. Russia has allowed itself to negotiate with Western imperialists). The Syrian rebels are so extreme that they categorically reject any diplomatic solution. Skulls and Bonesman John Kerry is allied with these rebels. America has no right to use an illegal, unilateral bombing of another sovereign state, which especially poses no direct threat to American soil at all. We still have been seeing this war on terror since Barack Obama appointed Robert Ford to the Ambassadorship in Syria. We have troops on the ground training terrorist mercenaries in Jordan and Turkey. They are training the cowardly criminals who blow up buses and Mosques and Churches in order to destabilize the country. We call in “unconventional warfare” in the Special Ops division of our military rank and file. This is Western terrorism plain and simple. We have imperialism overseas and neofeudalism at home with record income inequality.
The Kenyan Mall Attack
The deadly assault in Nairobi, Kenya was tragic. The upscale mall in Kenya was harmed by terrorists. The media portrayed the violence as being a product of mindless fanatics. The terrorist act was evil and unjustified. The roots of the situation deal with Western intervention in Somalia to a great degree. The Kenyan government carried out a military intervention in Somalia with the blessing of the USA. This is the same war on terror action that may have escalated the mall attack. Kenyan troops with help from Israeli commandos recaptured the Westgate mall on Tuesday four days after an assault by 10 to 15 heavily armed Islamist militants. The Somali based Al Shabab militia took responsibility for the attack. It killed more than 60 human beings and injured more than 170. Some believe that British and American Al
Shabab members have participate in the attack. Since English is heavily spoken in Kenya as Kenya was once ruled by England, some of the attackers spoke English. Al Shabab claimed that it wanted to punish Kenya for its 2011 invasion and continued occupation of southern Somalia. The nature of Al Shabab's target, a shopping center frequented by foreign tourists, attests to the narrowness of Shabab's aims--the tourism industry is Kenya's largest source of foreign exchange. Some want Kenya to work closer with America in anti-terrorism policies. The U.S. military and its spy agencies work closely in the region. They work in nations like Uganda, Kenya, and Rwanda. These nations sent troops to occupy Somalia after the U.S. backed Ethiopian invasion of 2006. As the New York Times noted during the siege at the mall, "Kenya is a crucial American partner, whose security forces work closely with their Western counterparts to contain Islamist militants in the region." Even the current Kenyan President Uhuru Kenyatta is indicted now by the International Criminal Court for financing and directing death squads during the violence that killed more than 1,200 human beings (and uprooted hundreds of thousands after the disputed 2007 election. He is the son of Kenya's prominent founder Jomo Kenyatta). Uhuru is one of the richest men in Africa. President Barack Obama skipped a trip to Kenya, because of Kenyatta. After the attack, he telephoned Kenyatta to reaffirm the strong partnership between America and Kenya. For years, U.S. operatives have been used in Somalia. Once, Americans supported the Somali dictator Barre. Later, when the Cold War was over, clans overthrew Said Barre. Somalia is ruled by private fiefdoms. Once America supported warlord Mohammaeed Farah Aidid, but he desired independence. This influenced the famous Battle of Mogadishu, in which 18 U.S. Special Forces troops died. Black Hawk Down was a film that talked about this battle in harsh detail. According to Somali specialist Stig Hansen, who wrote Al-Shabaab in Somalia, some of the Somali fighters were veterans of the U.S. proxy war in the 1980s against the Soviet occupation of Afghanistan. The United States and Saudi Arabia had financed and coordinated this first major venture into "international jihad," drawing Muslim militants from around the world, which gained fighting experience and brought an international outlook back to their home countries when they returned. Some of these Somali veterans of the Afghan war were later founders of Al Shabab. Militias rule Somalia now. There is harsh poverty, lack of health care, etc. inside of Somalia. Al Shabab developed in ca. 2005. So, now we see that Al Shabab wants more recruits. The whole situation is all in the war on terror era with AFRICOM involved in fighting in Africa too. AFRICOM is an imperialist operation that seeks to grow Western hegemony inside of the Motherland.
They or the counterfeit progressives are readily accepted on reactionary news agencies. Mainstream capitalism uses a feudal base and exploits the resources of humanity globally. It readily harms the
economic rights and achievements that the common people made over the course of human history. The Sister Michelle Alexander documents in her "The New Jim Crow" book that the
new Jim Crow prison industrial complex harms the black community. The private prison system uses capital exploitation all of the time against exploited humanity. The prison industrial complex, as both Michelle Alexander and Angela Y. Davis notes, are also part of the process for re-establishing racial caste in new forms. For if you are praised and supported by the world (in a sick fashion), then you are of the world. Even some in MSNBC nearly worship the current Presidency of Barack Obama even on austerity issues (since nearly every single major host on that show has agreed with Obama and Boehner compromising as a means to agree with budget cuts in the social safety net) and most of these hosts agree with the war mongering on Syria. FOX News is still worse than MSNBC in my opinion since at least MSNBC does not scapegoat the black community as FOX has. I still have more respect for folks like Tamron Hall, Angela Rye, Melissa Harris Perry than Bill O’Reilly, Sean Hannity, and Neil Cavuto. At least Tamron Hall, Angela Rye, and Melissa Harris Perry talk about the evils in the criminal justice system or the problems of poverty in America (in a mature, rational, and progressive fashion). FOX News is reactionary news central with their propaganda and their grotesque war mongering advancements. Many of the Left Gatekeepers are funded by the Rockefeller Foundation and the Ford Foundation (whose history is filled with counterrevolutionary actions. The Rockefeller family has been linked to a one world agenda, eugenics, unjust monopolies, and other reactionary actions for decades). We can never support imperialism regardless if a Republican is President or a Democrat is President. Now, the counterfeit progressives back then opposed Bush's imperialism and now they want modern American imperialism and even NSA warrantless spying to occur. This is outstanding hypocrisy on the part of these counterfeit progressives. The mainstream media outlets (ruled by corporate power and have links to the CFR including other slick think tanks globally), TV news media, and other instruments of deception express approval of Wall Street actions and they love mainstream predatory capitalism. America is being transformed into a placed where tyranny is justified in a smiling face, but the face of the machine is filled with lies including deception. You cannot have a jobs plan that loot funds from Social Security and other social service programs that will have trouble creating jobs. We live presently in a fascistic and predatory economic system now (for it was a capitalist junta was responsible for
the war on terror after 9/11, the 2008 terrorist attack on the American economy, the 2013 brutal deaths of workers recently in Bangladesh, etc.). We know that imperialism, bankster
bailouts, regime change wars, and austerity measures are harming the nations of the world including the peoples of the world. Goldman Sachs and other Wall Street based banking institutions fund the mainstream political establishment in America. That is why the real populists want to replace the evil
system with a cooperative, commonwealth system (including other alternatives) where all of the people benefit in society. Community based democratic cooperatives are things that I have no issue with.
One of the greatest signs of the counterfeit progressives is their agreement with imperialism. They are called by some as "the cruise missile left." They use humanitarian issues as an excuse to promote militarism when that can complicate matters. The truth is that true humanitarianism is trying to resolve conflicts peaceful not advancing the whirlwinds of war. We know that genocide has been used to describe crimes made by countries who are the victims rather than perpetrators of war. Also, the establishment omits the crimes committed by the United States and Israel. We know that the new Secretary of State is John Kerry and the new U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Samantha Power. Both have pushed for a military intervention in Syria on humanitarian grounds before the deal came about between the West, Russia, and Syria. The West will support genocide that is bounded under their interest. One example is how the U.S. sponsored genocide in Vietnam via Operation Phoenix and other covert programs. The Vietnam War caused millions to be directly killed by U.S. forces. The U.S. government installed and supported a reactionary government in Guatemala back in the 1980's (when this Guatemalan government caused the mass killing of as many as 100,000 Mayan Indians between 1978 and 1985, in what Amnesty International called “A Government Program of Political Murder.”). Not a word from these counterfeit progressives about the CIA’s role in facilitating the slaughter of hundreds of thousands of Indonesians deemed Communists in 1965-66. Power talks about Iraq, but refuses to recognize the U.S. role in the genocide in Iraq. Saddam Hussein used chemical warfare and killing of Kurds at Halabja and elsewhere. Yet, there was the diplomatic rapprochement with Saddam in the midst of his war with Iran in 1983, the active U.S. logistical support of Saddam during that war, and the U.S. approval of sales and transfers of chemical and biological weapons during the period in which he was using chemical weapons against the Kurds. Also, there were active efforts by the U.S. and the UK to block UN actions that might have obstructed Saddam's killings. The sanctions organized by the West murdered over 1 million Iraqis. That was one of the worse post WWII genocides in the post WWII era. The USA supported it with Madeleine Albright saying that the murderous sanctions were worth it against Iraqi children (which is sick to say the least). There is the genocide against the Palestinians and then apartheid South Africa once being allied with Israel during the 1980's. So, imperialism and militarism by the West is just as evil as any form of genocide. Many other so-called progressives have been caught up in advancing imperialism. Bill Clinton led militarism globally. Now, this doesn't mean that we should be isolationists. We ought to believe in fair trade, diplomacy, negotiations, and peaceful talks. This doesn't mean that we should organize wars of aggression or commit war crimes though. The establishment has agreed with dropping drones in villages in Pakistan, Yemen, Afghanistan, Somalia, etc. No major human-rights NGO opposed the invasion of Iraq. Even some in the Nation magazine agree with the wars in Central Asia. The West wants to assert global hegemony in the world. Predatory capitalists use the mainstream media and other cabal approved analysts to support imperialism and token measures not real revolutionary changes in society. We know that mainstream capitalism is a totally failed system and it must be replaced to benefit all of the people not the select few. We should reject fake revolutions. There is the NSA collecting American phone records. There are the TSA agents harassing human beings in airports via in the most grotesque fashion, Gitmo, and other injustices in the world. It is very immature to believe in the notion that the U.S. is just some passive benign giant that must vanquish evil as its destiny in foreign lands. The liberal hawks are just as wrong as the conservative hawks at the end of the day.
*We need to continue to fight for economic justice. We ought to continue to advocate for racial justice including Justice in general for the entire human race. We should continue to oppose war and advocate peace. You know that I will always hold it down and present the truth to the masses of the people. In the final analysis, it is all about the people. So, peace to the real members of the human race. So, I will continue to love. I love the Sisters too. It is the fact of human power that is important not the embrace of horrendous prejudices and adolescent bigotry. I will keep on fighting for justice.
Appendix A: The Iranian Nuclear Deal
Iran and Western powers have reached a nuclear deal. Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif said that Iran and the world powers have finally agreed on a long awaited deal on Tehran's nuclear energy program. There were days of intense talks in Geneva. President Barack Obama has talked about the deal in his press conference recently. He said that this is a great step in the direction of averting disaster in the region. The reactionaries in other nations and in Congress hate the deal completely. French Foreign Minister Laurent Fabius and European Union foreign policy Chief Catherine Ashton's spokesman, Michael Mann, also announced a nuclear agreement with Iran. The Iranian foreign minister also said that the nuclear crisis is abating. The deal was announced on Saturday night. There were intense nuclear talks between Tehran and the five permanent members of the UN Security Council. These members are Britain, China, France, Russia, and the United States (including Germany). It was originally scheduled to end on Friday entered into the fifth day. The interim deals allows for Iran to continue its activities in its nuclear sites of its cities of Arak, Fordo, and Natanz. The Iranian Foreign Ministry said that the agreement stipulates that no additional sanctions will be imposed on Iran due to its nuclear energy program. Iran gets access to 4.2 billion dollars USD in foreign exchange as part of the nuclear deal. Deputy Foreign Minister Seyyed Abbas Araqchi said that the agreement recognizes the country's enrichment program. Araqchi is Iran's top nuclear negotiator. Araqchi had earlier emphasized that Tehran could not accept any deal that did not recognize Iran's enrichment right. The landmark agreement was reached in Tehran's third nuclear negotiations with the world powers since Iranian President Hassan Rouhani took office in August. The agreement in summary dealt with the six month agreement slows Iran's nuclear development program in exchange for lifting some sanctions. "For the first time in nearly a decade, we have halted the progress of the Iranian nuclear program, and key parts of the program will be rolled back," Obama said late Saturday night. President Vladimir Putin said that the deal was balanced and will be a positive factor in Middle East relations. He said that Russia had proposed earlier principles of gradualism and reciprocity. "The IAEA welcomes the agreement reached in Geneva, which is another important step forward following the agreement reached between the Agency and Iran on 11 November in Tehran," Yukiya Amano, director general of the U.N. nuclear watchdog, said in a statement. "With the agreement of the IAEA's Board of Governors, the Agency will be ready to fulfil its role in verifying the implementation of nuclear related measures." Israel and other Sunni dominated nations (except Egypt) fear that the deal was a mistake. The reality is that the deal is better than imperialist warfare. The reactionary Republicans hate the deal as being premature and detrimental to a real solution to the Iranian issue. In the deal, the U.S., Britain and their puppet regimes across the globe have agreed to ease some of the harshest sanctions on Iran, freeing up 6 to 7 billion in oil revenues they illegally stole from the country, while Iran agreed to a 6 month freeze on nuclear enrichment and tighter inspections by the IAEA. Netanyahu is a blatantly reactionary and an extremist. He is allied with Lukidnites and he is not
representative of the progressive genuine Jewish and Arabic folks in the world that want genuine peace in the globe. The Saudi-Israeli alliance could not defeat the deal. The Saudi-Israeli alliance, with its combination of wealth and oil on the Saudi side and propaganda and lobbying on the Israeli side, has represented a new pole testing out its combined strength against the more traditional powers of Washington and Moscow. This is an interim deal. Yet, the signing represents an historic achievement, the first time the United States and Iran have joined in a formal diplomatic pact since the Iranian revolution of 1979. Obama and Putin worked together on the deal. This deal is certainly better than a militaristic Shock and awe militaristic campaign against Iran. Every nation has the right to have legitimate economic development period. Iran says that they do not want to create a nuclear bomb. This deal is better than some military strike against Iran. The war hawks still think that this deal is extreme and appeasement, which is silliness. The bad news is that deal is temporary for a six month period. It doesn't go far enough (in respecting the human rights of the Iranian people) and it can be reversible. It is obvious that Iran deserves peace not war. Yet, this deal never justifies the current, criminal Western imperialism that is still going on in the world. We should always condemn imperialism, unjust wars, Africom, and other evils that relate to current Western foreign policy. We know that the CIA (and other nefarious entities) committed terrorism, coups, assassinations, and other evils for decades. We should continue to oppose imperialism in the world.
