Global Affairs – The American Empire of Chaos
Submitted by Pachamama
As Obama steps up his concentration on the part of government where he still holds relative influence, he and his allies are taking a beating in Ukraine. As commodity prices leap into a deflationary death spiral, American internal pressures mount on the Venezuelan government to curb its influence in the region, with a serious threat to the Maduro regime. With the ’empire of chaos’ becoming more and more unpredictable, by the day, foreign policy thinkers are seeking to make sense of what appears to be a monumental nonsense – they must come to see it as characteristic of empire’s end. With the rise of Syreza, in Greece, Europhiles are waiting for an anti-austerity backlash that could change the political landscape of the community and deliver a mixture of socialists and far right elements into the seat of several governments.
This represents but a snapshot of the global political-economic-military environment. It is an environment in which interests, not friendship nor sentimentality, inform national decision making in a largely callous manner. There is no loyalty amongst nation states as there is none amongst thieves. So the ‘peace’ president has traveled to Indian where he signed significant agreements with Narendra Modi, an ultra right wing, Hindu, zealot. Those agreements included the transfer of nuclear technology in a potentially volatile arena. The trade dimensions would suggest to observers that Indian is now being groomed to challenge or create a rift in relations with China. It is however remarkable that at the military parade, of which Obama was invited to observe, nearly 100% of the equipment on display was Russian.
Of course, Obama is also signaling, to India’s arch nemesis, Pakistan, that a deepened relationship with the neighbour is of much more importance than the intractably failed state next door. That Pakistan’s helpfulness in creating an empire of chaos using terrorism maybe be losing its cachette. Of course, India still has a long way to go. Those of us who have gone there are oftentimes put off by the levels of poverty, pollution of the cities, a level of government dysfunction as not befitting a great nation. The level of trade between Indian and the USA is unremarkable but it is next door to China and may form a forward-base for the destabilization of China by supporting the Muslims in the Xinjiang region, for example. There are 400 millions Muslims in India.
Last November he was in Myanmar. Clinton had previously made a hurried visit when ‘an opening’ appeared that would give the Americans another opportunity to surround China. When ‘Burma’ was a military dictatorship, like it still is to this day, elections are to be held sometime soon they say, there was a very different kind of narrative. There was a lot of talk about sanctions and human rights issues but an opportunity to surround China could make the ugliest of nations come in from the cold and be a close ‘friend’ to this empire of chaos. It is not to matter to those who profess to care about human rights that the majority Buddhists, Myanmar are committing genocide against the Royhindras – Muslims, presently! People who in their minds are stateless, even if they have been living there for hundreds of years. These issues are unlikely to deter Obama, the military government or Aung San Suu Kyi, the laureate who is neither noble nor peaceful. All the same we live in a world of doublespeak where reality is the opposite of what we are told, by all parties.
The Myanmar example is the model Obama would like to impose on Tehran and Havana. Thereby, showing foreign policy victories as part of some presidential ‘legacy-building’ effort. Nixon to China-like. But the Cubans are insisting that Guantanamo Bay be returned and that reparations be paid for the damage done to Cuba over the last 50 years or so. These are just demands, of course. These are what you call heavy diplomatic body blows. Obama will be unable to deliver on these but the Cubans already have him over-committed to improving relations. On the other hand, they maybe just the opening gambit in a game on the grand chest board. The Iranians are in an extremely more powerful positions. A great country with an illustrious history, possessing large reserves of natural resources, a regional super power and in a critical geo-strategic location. It is a country that has, on balance, used a near 35 year sanctions regime to developed indigenous capacities. AIPAC and their friends in Washington, nearly 100% of lawmakers, will not want to see the success of current negotiations, unless it means total Iranian capitulation, which will never happen, or rapprochement between the empire of chaos and the Iranians. Washington knows they can’t win any war against Iran and that Iran will not fall into their traps.
Obama stopped off in Saudi Arabia, kissing the ring of Salman bin Abdulaziz Al Saud. He would, no doubt have taken the opportunity to express commiserations for the recent and ongoing failures, of all kinds, of the American nefarious projects in the Middle East. For it was Salman, if his Alzheimer’s or dementia, would not have prevented the host from remembering his exploits in arming DASH, ISIS, ISIL, Al-Qaeda to destroy Syria, Libya, Iraq and as many other regional countries as possible. Even their most favoured client state – Saudi Arabia seems to now feel threatened. Cutting off the American financial and military support seems to have become necessary for this snake they created was starting to bite the creators – Charlie Hebdo 2015. While the backlash is clearly with us, Obama still recklessly talks about funding and arming a ‘moderate opposition’ in Syria. Like he has been doing for 4 years now. What a royal asshole!
Obama would no doubt have already made the judgement that this new Saudi dictator will be just as supine as the last one – the ultimate American satrapy. There is no way Salman would have even gotten anywhere near to being king unless the intelligence was favourable. Saying that he will follow in his brother’s/father’s footsteps, he has now jettisoned his brother from a Black slave women, Bandar bin Sultan and his son from the intelligence-national security apparatus. In this we find a message. It says to us that the new regime, maybe acting on orders from Washington, has determined a ‘pricely prince’ must be sacrificed for the failures to remove the Syrian regime. For letting DASH get out of hand. But the wicked Americans will still settle for the runner’s up prize – continuing chaos in Syria. And their Zionist beachhead is reliably and quietly provided continued chaos next door in Syria.
And Obama would have thanked the Saudi for waging an oil war on their enemies. Creating chaos in the commodity markets. Never mind such chaos is also succeeding in bankrupting a sizable portion of the American economy, there are benefits from all sides. The Saudis will get to harm Iran, Venezuela and Russia. This serves American interests. As they cleanse the marginal players from the market, players who need oil to be above US$80 per barrel to survive. Obama would have benefited by controlling Texas oil interests, at home, who are accumulating too much of a war chest to use against the Democratic party amid talk about succession. Consumers benefit, if they have any money at all. Everybody could benefit, only if they had jobs or real wages were not at 1970’s levels or the middle classes weren’t eviscerated or the billionaires and millionaires didn’t have all the money or the real economy wasn’t dead. These criminals have brought a level of desperation the peoples of the world, hitherto-fore, have never seen.
One place in the Middle East Obama is unlikely to go before his term ends is the Zionist state. He is not known to have very friendly personal relations with Bibi. They loathe each other. But the politics of the US Senate and Congress make Israel the most favoured nation to empire, still. So Bibi could openly defy Obama and Obama can’t interfere with America’s staunchest support for that settler state. The tail wags the toothless tiger. Maybe this is a good thing. Only yesterday, the Lebanese resistance group, Hezbollah, in retaliation for the killing of five (5) high ranking military officials in Qunaytirah two weeks ago, and one (1) senior Iranian general, conducted an operation in Shebaa Farm as payback. And Israel, a dying regime, which is no stronger than a spider’s web…………… can’t do a damn thing about it.
Empire is using the Israelis just like they have used Al-Qaeda, the Maidan crowd or anybody else. This chaos of terrorism as run by empire has the Israelis hosting tens of thousand of Al-Nusra ( an offshoot of Al-Qaeda) TERRORISTS in large military bases in the Golan Heights and into Syrian territory from whence they act to destabilize the Assad regime. Their masters know they can’t and don’t want them to win. Al-Nusra has military fortifications, large depots of explosives, anti-aircraft missiles, heavy weaponry and safe havens provided by Israel. That these idiots could be used in this fashion by the enemies of all Islam to kill Muslims, Christians, Yazidis and most of all against the Resistance Axis illustrates a misguidance, at least. Especially when we consider the use of far right extremists elsewhere should tell them that the centre of empire can no longer hold and that constructive chaos will NOT birth their new world order. This is the reason Obama and Netanyahu can’t agree, it is about giving money to Israel to pay for the hordes of terrorists hosted by Israel. America is the leading terrorist state and Israel is its colony.
The graphic video above shows that the Western created chaos in Ukraine is unable to bring peace to the country. Sometimes we talk about war as if it is something to play with. Especially people in the Caribbean who know not of the colour of real war. This video, with English sub-titles, shows Ukrainian soldiers with ‘brainless’ heads. The emotions of women, mothers who lost sons in this carnage, not for Ukrainian interests, but for the interests of a dying American Empire of Chaos.
This kind of chaos in the economic, political and military environments will effect the whole of Europe leading to increased destabilization, economic failure and eventually, generalized war. Any war on Russia’s borders will mean the use of nuclear weapons. Any use of nuclear weapons, anywhere in the world, will mean an end of earth event. All the officials accept these calculations but the empire of chaos, as if on auto pilot, keeps driving us to the brink. To the point of no return!
Escobar is suggesting the Saudis and the Qataris maybe starting to have second thoughts about being the paymasters for the global terrorism campaign which has supported the empire of chaos. Well, even the most belligerent of idiots have to come to a ‘Christian’ understanding sooner or later. The empire of chaos is lost. It does not know where next to turn. It seems, the more they come to recognize their fate the more reckless these people will become. We are less hopeful they could stomach a sustained challenge to dollar supremacy which will be upped this year. For that is their Achilles heel. The nuclear clock has just been judged to be at two (2) minutes to Domesday. In 1994, it was at 19 minutes to midnight. How much longer will it be before there is a triggering event?
