War – When Cowards and Mad Men Take Powah
Submitted by Pachamama
While Bajans wait with baited breath for manna from the mouth of the preeminent national coward, of all times, the world is going to hell in a handbasket.
And while that manna is destined to leave those with a Pavlovian palate as intellectually starved as before, a constellation of global forces are driving us to the final war.
Of course, none of this has the potential to demonstrate the basis truism that anything which can happen, or not happen, in Barbados cannot make local circumstances much better, any time soon.
Conversely, what’s happening in the global environment could easily make the anticipated pronouncement of this PM moot, at best. And at worst, alter all sets of calculations.
In the USA we have ‘deep state’ forces running two (2) major national security projects simultaneously. First, and most importantly, there has been a determination that Russia must be brought to heel, at any and all cost. What madness!
There are big lies about interference in all manner of elections by Russia. That the United States has rigged, stolen, derailed more elections than can be recalled seems to be of no import.
Secondly, these same interests have long decided that Trump, under the real threat of impeachment charges, maybe death for treason as well, whether real or trumped-up, must be made to do their bidding – as was every other president of the USA before.
War has always given meaning by the American military industrial security complex. The whole economy is based in war. Without the war industries there is no empire.
Given these circumstances, neither Trump nor Putin, as much as they would want to propose entente, notwithstanding or because of a belief, that Putin may be holding a trump card on Trump.
But war or rumours of war is the order of the day. American and Russian military forces are engaged in the Syrian theatre. One mistake could lead to Armageddon in the place from whence this name comes.
Trump appears to have finally found the last two pieces for his war cabinet with the appointments of John Bolton as national security adviser and Mike Pompeo as secretary of state. Both as hawkish as can be possible.
He has promised a May 2018 withdrawal from BarJam, as known by the Iranians. The JCPOA, as called by the West. It is an agreement with the five permanent members of the UNSC and Germany – the ‘Five plus One’ – to limit the Iranian nuclear programme in exchange for sanctions relief. For Trump and Trump alone, this is the worst deal ever made.
When we add the rabid Zionist Bolton to the mix, big trouble cannot be too far away, even when the deep state forces themselves see no reason for a war on Iran. Pompeo is no less a Zionist though he is not known for supporting the anti-Iran terrorist, the MEK, like Bolton long has.
Trump was a genuine coward when his time came to go to war. So was Bolton. Bolton has called, for years, for the bombing of Iranian nuclear sites. For years he has called for regime change in Iran. None of these internal and competing forces have any problems with real terrorist states like Saudi Arabia and Israel. Indeed the USA itself is the foremost terrorist state on earth. War is terror! America is a warlike nation.
It is American, British and French weapons, planes, refueling aircrafts, satellites targeting, missiles which are illegally bombing the poor people of Yemen for three (3) years, without just cause, killing over 14000 Yemenis, destroying critical infrastructures, causing cholera, mass starvation and holding 26 million Yemenis hostage under an illegal blockade, while the world keeps silent. Barbados has nothing to say about this.
The United Kingdom and Theresa May, with the help of MI5, seem to be making their contribution to the coming Great War. What a pitiful former empire. The Sripal incident was concocted to add weight to the irrational Russiaphobia being galvanized through popular media as controlled by the deep state forces of the Five Eyes countries – USA, UK, Canada, Australia and New Zealand. CNN, MSNBC, BBC etc are mouthpieces for the global security state.
Western actions against Russia do not make sense to those who have no desire to ‘march unto war with the cross of western Christianity going on before’. Why not let the OPCW – the internationally renowned Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons – test the samples, make the chemical agent available to the agency, follow its established protocols.
Jeremy Corbin is again under pressure. This time for his refusal to blindly follow Theresa May down a war path, not dissimilar to Iraq, but based no evidence at all. No evidence has been provided, only grand charges. And the world must take the word of professional liars like Theresa May.
Up to today deep state forces have succeeded in getting more than 30 world nations to expel over 150 Russian diplomats – a euphemism for spies, they say. All based on a flimsy case, in which not even the accused has seen the evidence, if there is any.
The deep state forces make their case through their talking heads and placemen. But neither the Iranians nor the Russians are afraid of them. And that is a problem. The aggressors are not known for confronting and defeating strong countries, only broken back ones.
It was the Soviets who loss 26 million of their citizens in defeating the Western built and strengthened Nazi regime. In this some measure of credit must also go to Churchill. Before the Americans joined the Second World War, around 1943, on the side of the ‘allies’, it was Churchill who defied Hitler.
There is no way to win a hot war against Russia, but the deep state forces are not deterred. A better estimate would be the total annihilation of us all. In addition, the Russian have just given a strategic response to nearly 30 years of Western (NATO) encroachment on its boundaries, encirclement.
In his recent New Year’s speech Putin exhibited a dazzling array of new weapon systems to counter the expansionism by the West. Before Obama left he committed over one trillion in nuclear weapons ‘development’. Trump has substantially increased the military budget. They are making ready for the Malhama!
The Iranians have foiled all kinds of Western plots against them. This writer has met them and we can attest that they are unafraid of their enemies. Iran has defeated Israel three (3) times, without credit. A defeat of Israel is also a defeat of the United States, for the Zionist regime is merely a cat’s-paw of empire although it still harbours hopes of a Yinon Plan, as a stepping stone towards Pax-Judaeca. In the Iran-Iraq War all the global forces, and most of its neighbors, supported Saddam Hussain, but the Iranian prevailed.
There are reports that the al-Saud regime has recently agreed to pay the United States of America hundreds of billions to defray the cost of a war against the Islamic Republic of Iran. This seems credible in light of the fact that the terrorist war on the Syrian Arab Republic was largely bankrolled by the al-Sauds. That global terrorism has its genesis in Riyadh. And from Riyadh the funding goes to propagate terrorism around the globe. State terrorism is about to become real. We already know that Trump believes in taking over the resources of countries as a consequence of war. So why would he not pimp-out the security service of the USA to defeat the perceived arch enemy of the al-Saud regime, especial when a buck can come to his pocket. He’s said as much.
Another obvious hot spot is no doubt the Korean Peninsula, though with Trump, China or Venezuela could easily be added to the mix. If he has any real courage. In spite of the entente provided by the Winter Olympics, more engagement of the Chinese and the absence of bombast by the belligerents, we fail to see the circumstances where the DPRK will surrender its nuclear capabilities even with Korean reunification and the withdrawal of American military bases.
Not when Supreme Leader Jong-Un has seen what happened to Saddam Hussein. What happened to Maummar Gaddafi. What Trump is threatening to do with the JCPOA signed with the Islamic Republic. It is difficult for us to see these China-led negotiations leading to the grand bargain, in the near term, an overly optimistic Trump presumes possible.
The American empire is prepared to destroy us all in its quest to maintain supremacy. The Chinese are holding on to notions of a long game. It is a logic which rests on the mistaken assumption that the American project will run out of steam and make room for them sometime soon. Like Russia they are fighting for the space to play a greater role. At the end of the day it will only be Russia and her allies willing to confront a fading hyper power and deal it a death blow. The response of the West then means total annihilation.
