Once Again Americans Are Shafted Major

Presidential Trojan Horse Commits 30,000 Troops to Afghan Insanity

America’s Serial Wars Have Nothing to Do With National Security: Spot The Difference [sic]

Korean War (1950-1953) – More than 300,000 US forces were deployed in Korea. During the last year of the conflict, about 37,000 US troops were killed in action.
Vietnam War (1961-1975) – The United States escalated the war in Vietnam.  By April 1969 543,000 military personnel were fighting in Vietnam. [Of the American troops 58,159 were killed; 2,000 are missing; 303,635 were wounded.]

Many other wars, conflicts and military operations followed throughout the world… Then came Operation Urgent Fury, Grenada (1983); Operation Just Cause, Panama (1989); Operation Desert Storm, Iraq (January and February 1991); Operation Restore Hope, Somalia (1993); Operation Enduring Freedom, Afghanistan (2001-2002); Operation Iraqi Freedom, Iraq (2003-present); Operation Obama’s Vietnam, Afghanistan (2009 to way beyond)

Who Benefits From the War in Afghanistan?

In NO way do the American public (We the People), the US troops, the Afghan people, or even the Taliban benefit from the war in Afghanistan financially, materially, ecologically, socially, ideologically,  morally, emotionally, intellectually or otherwise.

The war in Afghanistan, like the war of occupation in Iraq, is NOT about the US national security, or national interests; it’s the latest chapter in America’s dark book of serial wars that are fought for and on behalf of the empire’s elite—the Security-Industrial-Congressional Complex.

The Money

At a time when at least 49.1 million Americans (1 in 6 people) go to sleep at night on an empty stomach, the $100 billion which the Security-Industrial-Congressional Complex will have appropriated in 2010 from the US taxpayer for the cost of War in Afghanistan could have gone a long way to provide food, health and education for our fellow Americans.

Taliban Threat to the US National Security

Like the “Iraqi insurgents,” the Taliban are as much of a security risk to the US as are President Obama’s Muslim relatives in Kenya. A plethora of scientific evidence has proven beyond any doubt whatever that the tragic events of 9/11 were perpetrated by insider terrorists.

The Security-Industrial-Congressional Complex (SICC) and the War Racket

Within just a few weeks of attacking Afghanistan, and with far fewer soldiers,  the US-UK militaries ousted the Taliban government in 2001. The new phase of war, however, has taken eight years and at least $300 billion to UNWIN the war.

It doesn’t take a rocket scientist to work out that the Security-Industrial-Congressional Complex, the only party that profits from war, can only continue to enrich itself from the War Racket if the wars are actually being fought. They don’t profit from wars that have been won. That’s why the post-Taliban Government fight has taken 8 years with no end in sight.

Who Are the Taliban Masterminds

So, How does the Security-Industrial-Congressional Complex (SICC)  keep the War Racket ongoing? It’s elementary: By making sure they control both sides of the war.  The spoils of war and trappings of Office are usually sufficient to induce most politicians to become war pimps.

In fact, during the last presidential election, it wasn’t so much the case of voting for Mr Obama, an aspiring war criminal, but that of voting out a known war criminal and Sarah Palin.  It was all about the art of nominating.

[Any future political activity by Sarah Palin on behalf her party could correctly be interpreted as a political plot by those who do the nominating to help Obama win a second term.]

Unsurprisingly, only 49 percent of Americans approved of Obama’s job performance, a major Gallup Poll revealed. His approval rating after taking office in January was just short of 70 percent.

It’s neither necessary nor possible to brainwash every single member of Taliban to conspire with the War Racket. The SICC needs to train only a handful of the Taliban masterminds to succeed.And the war-torn, disease-ridden, poverty-stricken, yet opium-rich Afghanistan is a fertile breeding ground for ambitious young men who would happily train as and play the role of Taliban leaders.

Does the life of so many American troops killed in far-away places mean anything to SICC?

Ask any of the 37,000 US troops were killed in action in Korea, or the 58,159 soldiers who were killed ingloriously in Vietnam (additional 2,000 are missing), or …

What About the Military Top Brass? Aren’t they supposed to protect the troops against fighting “bad wars?”

A soldier with no brain, mindless and unable to think, a soldier without a conscience and honor, void of reason to fight and without moral instructions is as good as a dead soldier. The military claims that West Point is the best military academy in the world, and that’s precisely why our voted-for-by-default President chose the venue to deliver his unintelligent justification speech on the troop surge in Afghanistan.

Yet, as if a bunch of zombies and automatons, not a single officer made a protest about the “bad war.”

As for the top brass, they are no warriors; they are, like their Commander in Chief, war pimps.

Is the Afghan War Winnable?

Isn’t that a loaded question? The fact is the SICC has no intention of winning the war. SICC intends to destabilize the region and profit from the ensuing chaos, and there is ample historic precedence, as well as mountains of evidence to establish its  intentions.

Who’s Responsible For All Of U.S. Woes?

The 545 People Responsible For All Of U.S. Woes

BY Charley Reese
[First published: date Unknown]

Politicians are the only people in the world who create problems and then campaign against them.

Have you ever wondered why, if both the Democrats and the Republicans are against deficits, we have deficits? Have you ever wondered why, if all the politicians are against inflation and high taxes, we have inflation and high taxes?

You and I don’t propose a federal budget. The president does. You and I don’t have the Constitutional authority to vote on appropriations. The House of Representatives does. You and I don’t write the tax code. Congress does. You and I don’t set fiscal policy. Congress does. You and I don’t control monetary policy. The Federal Reserve Bank does.

One hundred senators, 435 congressmen, one president and nine Supreme Court justices – 545 human beings out of the 235 million – are directly, legally, morally and individually responsible for the domestic problems that plague this country.

I excluded the members of the Federal Reserve Board because that problem was created by the Congress. In 1913, Congress delegated its Constitutional duty to provide a sound currency to a federally chartered but private central bank.

I excluded all but the special interests and lobbyists for a sound reason. They have no legal authority. They have no ability to coerce a senator, a congressman or a president to do one cotton-picking thing. I don’t care if they offer a politician $1 million dollars in cash. The politician has the power to accept or reject it.

No matter what the lobbyist promises, it is the legislation’s responsibility to determine how he votes.

A CONFIDENCE CONSPIRACY

Don’t you see how the con game that is played on the people by the politicians? Those 545 human beings spend much of their energy convincing you that what they did is not their fault. They cooperate in this common con regardless of party.

What separates a politician from a normal human being is an excessive amount of gall. No normal human being would have the gall of Tip O’Neill, who stood up and criticized Ronald Reagan for creating deficits.

The president can only propose a budget. He cannot force the Congress to accept it. The Constitution, which is the supreme law of the land, gives sole responsibility to the House of Representatives for originating appropriations and taxes.

O’neill is the speaker of the House. He is the leader of the majority party. He and his fellow Democrats, not the president, can approve any budget they want. If the president vetos it, they can pass it over his veto.

REPLACE SCOUNDRELS

It seems inconceivable to me that a nation of 235 million cannot replace 545 people who stand convicted — by present facts – of incompetence and irresponsibility.

I can’t think of a single domestic problem, from an unfair tax code to defense overruns, that is not traceable directly to those 545 people.

When you fully grasp the plain truth that 545 people exercise power of the federal government, then it must follow that what exists is what they want to exist.

If the tax code is unfair, it’s because they want it unfair. If the budget is in the red, it’s because they want it in the red. If the Marines are in Lebanon, it’s because they want them in Lebanon.

There are no insoluble government problems. Do not let these 545 people shift the blame to bureaucrats, whom they hire and whose jobs they can abolish; to lobbyists, whose gifts and advice they can reject; to regulators, to whom they give the power to regulate and from whom they can take it.

Above all, do not let them con you into the belief that there exist disembodied mystical forces like “the economy,” “inflation” or “politics” that prevent them from doing what they take an oath to do.

Those 545 people and they alone are responsible. They and they alone have the power. They and they alone should be held accountable by the people who are their bosses – provided they have the gumption to manage their own employees.
