On August 14th, Capt. May published “9/11 Truth KO’s Vibrant Response False Flag.” He drew attention to the suspicious fact that the Ft. Leavenworth Lamp published an article within a couple of days of our alert that indicated that the exercise was ending five days earlier than originally announced.
VA Hospital, Houston — Alarmed by what they saw as the dangers of national WMD terror exercise "Vibrant Response," four leading 9/11 Truth veterans decided to issue an alert. Going by the dictum that every terror exercise has an optional plan to become a terror attack, they investigated and published the Vibrant Response script, which called for a simulated nuking of Kansas City. They added a list of the top five U.S. target cities, based upon their experience in monitoring — and sometimes interdicting — false flag terror exercises.
A simple chronology shows that their concerns were warranted and their assertions were correct:
July 27 — The U.S. military announces Vibrant Response, 2009, scheduled for July 31 - August 14. They make no mention of a Kansas City nuclear event:
"'Vibrant Response' to train troops for disasters,"
Army News Service, 7/27/2009,
August 3 — The 9/11 Truth article warning about Vibrant Response is published. It specifies that there will be a nuclear simulation in the Kansas City area:
"Nuclear Obama's `Vibrant Response,'"
The Lone Star Iconoclast, 8/3/2009,
August 5 — Leavenworth Times, a major publication in Ft. Leavenworth, Kansas, where Vibrant Response is headquartered, publishes an article that casually mentions the crucial fact that the terror exercise will involve a nuclear simulation in Kansas City:
"Exercise Focuses on Emergencies,"
Leavenworth Times, 8/5/2009,
August 6 — The Fort Leavenworth Lamp publishes the bizarre information — also casually inserted — that Vibrant Response is ending five days early. The curtailing of a major military exercise is unheard of, but the article offers no explanation:
"Joint task force trains for disaster response,"
The Fort Leavenworth Lamp, 8/6/2009,
The articles above — three out of four of them official military sources — suggest that a false flag terror attack was indeed being prepared, and that the revelation of key exercise information by the 9/11 Truth article forestalled it.
In an effort to double-check facts, I called up Tisha Johnson, author of “Joint task force trains for disaster response,” to ask why she said the exercise was lasting from “July 31 through Aug. 9” when originally it was scheduled to last through August 14th. Ms. Johnson said she got her information from a Public Affairs Officer at Ft. Monroe, VA.
When I called the Ft. Monroe public affairs officer, he said that the exercise had lasted until the 14th and there were no irregularities. When I called another public affairs officer at U.S. Army North in San Antonio, Texas, he repeated what the Ft. Monroe officer told me.
Capt. May suspected that they could be blowing smoke, and that our alert had in fact caused false flag malefactors to scurry away from setting off a real nuke, as reflected by Johnson's first indication of exercise curtailment.
On August 23rd, Mark Dankof interviewed me on his Republic Broadcasting Network show. He asked me if I thought we had interdicted a possible nuclear attack on Kansas City, Kansas. I responded that we have to be very careful about verifying all facts before drawing conclusions, and currently I am faced with contradictory information between Ms. Johnson’s original article, and what the public affairs officers told me. This issue required further research before I can draw any conclusions.
I even went a step further to try to appear low key. I said that until we see hard evidence to the contrary, it is quite possible that by now the military has more than adequate counterintelligence capabilities, and our activist efforts are now no longer needed to prevent false flag attacks. I genuinely hope this is the case.
Certainly counterintelligence measures were totally inadequate on 9/11. I see no evidence that the Obama administration is out from underneath heavy Zionist influence and infiltration, as detailed in Chapter 35. Therefore, we certainly have plausible reason to continue our citizen vigilance activities in an effort to provide additional "social insurance" against disaster. Furthermore, given inherent problems with government operators and bureaucrats identified by the libertarian commentator Harry Brown in his classic work Why Government Doesn't Work, quite often they routinely need lots of additional over watch, adult supervision, and advice from outside activists regarding a wide range of issues that include not just defense-related issues, but also myriad other issues such as protecting the environment and running Child Protective Services.
In making these remarks, I was concerned that if I sounded like I was beating my chest, bragging that somehow I just knew that the exercise had been curtailed, and on top of this had a gleeful tone to my voice, that this could be twisted by our enemies. They could try to smear us as "subversives" by suggesting that we are somehow fundamentally anti-defense, anti-military, and anti-police. They might charge that we seek to disrupt exercises and degrade military morale as ends in themselves, all of which is not true.
The Barnes Review article "A Mockery of Justice—The Great Sedition Trial of 1944" by Michael Collins Piper & Ken Hoop provides a good historical case study about how establishment figures can play rough and dirty with activists --to include right wingers-- by running them through the court system on bogus subversion charges. I view military and police exercises as very serious matters that must be handled with great care.
I repeated our usual "boiler plate" legal defense position to Mark Dankof, namely that our goal is to attack the parasite, which consists of the hostile foreign intelligence Mossad --which we hold responsible for 9/11-- and not hurt the host -- which involves U.S. military and domestic police operations. Under normal circumstances, we enthusiastically support U.S. military exercises and national defense preparedness, just as I have always admired civil defense preparedness in countries like Switzerland, Norway, and Sweden. We want to block the possibility of an explosion by a false flag nuclear device, but not an underlying exercises itself. In addition, we do not want to make it appear like we are encouraging any military personnel or police to step back from their duties. We hope to supplement military counterintelligence and "counter terrorism," not oppose or disrupt it. While we are justified in engaging in intelligent speculation prior to events in order to make predictions and issue warnings, we constrain ourselves to careful fact-finding and analysis once they become historical events. We are working for peaceful and lawful change consistent with our oath to protect the Constitution, not violent revolutionary overthrow. We hope that our activist efforts to keep exercise operations above board and honest will help to boost rather than degrade military and police morale.
That was a mouth full, but that was pretty much what I tried to say.
Moving into September, we saw a strange hijacking of an airline in Mexico. According to the article “Officials: Plane Hijacked Because It Was 9-9-09.”
Mexico's security secretary says a Bolivian religious fanatic told police he hijacked a Mexican flight from the resort city of Cancun after receiving a divine revelation.
Public Safety Secretary Genaro Garcia Luna says Jose Mar Flores, 44, told police that Wednesday's date - 9-9-09 - is the satanic number 666 turned upside down.
Garcia Luna says Flores used a fake bomb to hijack the plane, then ordered the pilot to circle over Mexico City seven times. He said he wanted to warn Mexican President Felipe Calderon of an impending earthquake.
If nothing else, this episode demonstrated that Mossad-CIA is not the only entity that practices occult numerology. That is, unless Jose Flores was involved with some kind of Mossad-CIA MK-ULTRA project, which is not necessarily out of the question. More on this later when I discuss the likely false flag mass homicides at Ft. Hood, Texas in November 2009 in Chapter 39.
The next major upcoming occult date was 9-11. As an amazing coincidence, it brought with it some exciting moments involving Obama.
Capt. May recounted in his 12 Sept 2009 Erskine Overnight interview:
Capt. May: …A perfect number, 9-11 both ways. We put out an alert, and we had great concerns about Texas City. Now there was some activity at Texas City that was irregular. I am going to do an article about it [Editor's Note: Please see "9/11 Anniversary Attack on Texas City, Texas?"], but I will not focus on it at the moment. What I will focus on, is that we put out our article at 6:00 AM. By 10:00 AM central time, Barack Obama looks like he came about one hair away from being an ex-President because of those Coast Guard so-called exercises. Have you looked at that?
Erskine: Definitely I have seen it where they were firing shots on the Potomac on the whole thing and they dismissed it as just an exercise, but it could not have been any more ill-timed in my opinion.
Capt. May: This was the most egregious example probably since 9/11 itself. Of government claiming to hear, see, and say no evil. All of his protective agencies, FBI, Secret Service, Homeland Security, basically said they didn't have a clue. The Coast Guard said it did not have a clue. CNN said it was an all-out attack. Now they tried to cover their tail ends by saying, "Well, we got it wrong from the Coast Guard." But you know what it all reminds me of?
Capt. May: Building Seven. Building 7, when everybody knew it was going to come down, and they were reading their scripts too prematurely. I think there was a very, very good chance that that was an aborted assassination. A very good chance. Maj. Fox and I have written about this. Remember the Dead Monkey cartoon of February 17th?
Capt. May: That came directly after we interdicted a likely false flag on Sears Tower. And this summer--
Erskine: Which, let me interrupt. That is 666 [zip 60606, knock out zeroes] is the address at the Sears Tower. That was one of the purposes on that one.
Capt. May: Exactly, exactly. It is the most dangerous building in America. By the way, that is not just us. The FBI says that. It is just that we know the FBI is setting it up. But they say, essentially what we say. At about the time that you and I did our last interview, you may remember that I had just led a false flag interdiction with Sears Tower. Within about a week of our finishing, the FBI arrested, what, seven black kids. The Liberty Seven, and said that they had taken an oath to Bin Laden to blow up Sears Tower. Now this is after we have run our mission. So they are following our lead, and incidentally, that arrest made was on, get ready, 6-22-2006. 62226. Another perfect number. So these guys are freaks for these patterns . What happened yesterday was no mistake. It was either an aborted assassination or it was an attempt to scare the hell out of Obama or it was part of a wider operation that somehow was aborted.
Erskine: Wow. 9-11-09 a day which could have certainly lived in infamy if it had not been aborted, and CNN reported an all-out attack. Very interesting. More when we get back. And the others laugh it off. It was just a routine, routine exercise. Routine exercise on 9/11? I don't think so. More when we get back on Erskine Overnight.
Moving into late fall 2009, bombings, massacres, and assassinations were taking place with disturbing frequency in Pakistan --many of them blamed on Blackwater and other mercenary firms as false flag attacks-- stirring up ever more trouble, justifying counter terrorism budgets in the short run, but solidifying Pakistan's very own homegrown Taliban insurgency in the long run, as usual.
In his brilliant 11 Dec 2009 article "Obama Declares War on Pakistan," Webster G. Tarpley observed:
Obama’s West Point speech of December 1 represents far more than the obvious brutal escalation in Afghanistan -- it is nothing less than a declaration of all-out war by the United States against Pakistan. This is a brand-new war, a much wider war now targeting Pakistan, a country of 160 million people armed with nuclear weapons. In the process, Afghanistan is scheduled to be broken up. This is no longer the Bush Cheney Afghan war we have known in the past. This is something immensely bigger: the attempt to destroy the Pakistani central government in Islamabad and to sink that country into a chaos of civil war, Balkanization, subdivision and general mayhem. The chosen strategy is to massively export the Afghan civil war into Pakistan and beyond, fracturing Pakistan along ethnic lines. It is an oblique war using fourth-generation or guerrilla warfare techniques to assail a country which the United States and its associates in aggression are far too weak to attack directly. In this war, the Taliban are employed as US proxies. This aggression against Pakistan is Obama's attempt to wage the Great Game against the hub of Central Asia and Eurasia or more generally.
The following are examples of articles covered by Jason Ditz and others about the steady drum beat of destabilizing terror attacks. A major "kickoff" for this campaign was the spectacular bombing of the Islamabad Marriott in September 2008:
2008-09-25 Al Qaeda-linked suspects emerge in Islamabad Marriott attacks By Bill Roggio, The Long War Journal, "Two senior al Qaeda and Taliban-linked Pakistani terrorists are suspected of being behind the Sept. 20 bombing at the Marriott hotel in Islamabad. The deadly attack killed more than 50 Pakistanis and foreigners and wounded more than 270, and destroyed the once-popular hotel."

Again, this is only a small sampling of the continuing violence and mayhem destabilizing Pakistan. One can find a more comprehensive listing of events at pakistanbodycount.org.
Please also recollect the famous Thomas Jefferson quote: "A government big enough to give you everything you want, is strong enough to take everything you have." Similarly, a Mossad-CIA establishment that is powerful enough to pull off 9-11 and not stand trial, plus kick off a steady drum beat of bombings and other destabilization operations in Pakistan (not to mention Lebanon, Afghanistan, Iraq, Yemen, and other Middle Eastern countries), is also powerful enough to some day pull the same pattern of false flag tricks on American soil, in which Ft. Hood-type shootings and Oklahoma City bombings will become almost weekly events. If present trends do not change, we can also expect the U.S. military to be just as myopic on the home front as it is currently over seas, unless enough citizen activists can wake up the public in time.
Before closing out this chapter, at least a couple of topics merit broader intelligence analysis.
1) The extent to which the U.S. military establishment has itself become a mind-controlled, false flag "patsy" of Zionists, as evidenced by its institutionalized inability to avoid repeating all the errors of Vietnam, failure to interdict Mossad or other false flag activity in America (ranging from 9/11 to the Ft. Hood shootings), or avoid a zombie walk into another Stalingrad disaster in the Iraq-Af-Pak-Iran theater on a broader strategic level.
2) The extent to which the U.S. military has become such a "derivative" organization decoupled from original citizen soldier concepts, that it serves alien --specifically Zionist-- special interests as opposed to U.S. national interests and the U.S. Constitution, and would likely repeat many of the horrors of the Red Army under Jewish Bolsheviks in a national martial law clamp down scenario.
There are quite a few articles that have appeared at antiwar.com, lewrockwell.com, counterpunch, waynemadsenreport.com, and other independent or free-thinking web sites that make convincing analogies between America's fiasco in the Vietnam-Indochina War and its current crusade in the Iraq-Af-Pak-Iran theater. A good example is the 22 Jan 2010 article "Mayor of the North Pole" by Jeff Huber, which states:
...Karzai, whose government is rated as the second most corrupt regime in the world by Transparency International, doesn’t even control Kabul. He may as well be Mayor of the North Pole. President Obama, at the prodding of General Stanley McChrystal and the rest of the Long War cabal, has signed on to a major escalation and a long-term commitment to this woebegone war, a war that’s turning into a goat rope more tangled than the Mesopotamia Mistake...
...The only rationale for being in Afghanistan at all is to deny al-Qaeda a sanctuary and the only rationale for fighting the Taliban is that they’ll give al-Qaeda a sanctuary. But in early December 2009, the Taliban offered to give "legal guarantees" that that it will not allow Afghanistan to be used as a sanctuary for attacks on other countries. Gates and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton have, so far, blown them off. That’s because in return for not letting al-Qaeda or anyone else launch attacks on other countries from Afghanistan, the Taliban want foreign occupation forces to leave. Imagine them not wanting to be occupied by foreign forces. The effrontery!
General Stanley McChrystal and rest of our military and civilian leaders in charge of the Chinese fire drill in Afghanistan are determined to continue a conflict that can’t be won in order to support a despot who can’t be reformed in order to guarantee we have a Long War that can’t be ended. We’re being led over a cliff by a hatch load of certifiable boobies, and the men in white coats with butterfly nets are nowhere in sight.
Wayne Madsen has not only made a strong Vietnam analogy, but also talks about "intelligence agencies interested in further internationalizing the war and luring Russia into the Afghan conflict."
My immediate suspicion is that the Mossad is inserting Chechens into Afghanistan, just like it is a prime suspect for the 3 Dec 2009 train bombing in Russia described below.
The idea is that since America is now more dependent upon Russian cooperation for its northern supply lines, since its southern lines through Pakistan are coming under increasing guerilla attack, Mossad-CIA has an incentive to "false flag" Russia closer to the U.S. I would not be surprised if Mossad-CIA is also embellishing reports of Iranian involvement in Afghanistan to support further set up an American attack on Iran. Madsen reported as follows:
January 12, 2010 -- Afghanistan is a potential Vietnam on steroids
The United States faced a determined enemy during the Vietnam War that delivered a constant stream of fresh troops and weapons into South Vietnam along the famed Ho Chi Minh trail in Laos. The United States eventually lost the war in Vietnam and a superpower was vanquished. Not learning from the errors of Vietnam, the United States faces in Afghanistan a much more determined enemy with a multitude of rugged and mountainous "Ho Chi Minh trails" through which are pouring all sorts of battle-worn irregulars anxious to deal the United States multiple fatal blows on a battlefield largely alien to the United States military.
WMR has learned from its reliable sources inside Afghanistan that recently a U.S. Forward Operating Base in Afghanistan run by a U.S. Special Forces unit was overrun in a surprise attack by six well-armed Chechen guerrillas. The twelve U.S. Special Forces personnel at the base in a tribal region on the Afghan-Pakistani border were caught off guard and were quickly dispatched by the Chechens. WMR has also been told that the real problem for the United States in Afghanistan is not so much the Afghan Taliban but incoming extremists from Uzbekistan, Yemen, Chechnya, and Dagestan who make the Afghan Taliban appear tame in comparison.
The neocon think tanks and media outlets in the United States have been quick to dismiss reports that Chechens are fighting in Afghanistan against the United States and NATO forces. However, there is a possibility that limited numbers of Chechen fighters have been placed inside Afghanistan by intelligence agencies interested in further internationalizing the war and lure Russia into the Afghan conflict on the side of the Americans and NATO. In 2000, Russia's Vladimir Putin threatened to bomb Chechen guerrilla training bases in Afghanistan and Taliban-ruled Afghanistan was one of the few countries that recognized the independence of Chechnya. Chechnya even had a full-blown embassy in Kabul.
There are also reports on Iranian irregulars in Afghanistan helping to defend Afghanistan's beleaguered Sh'ia population from both the Taliban and Sunni warlords loyal to President Hamid Karzai. There have been a number of reported shooting incidents between the Iranians and American forces who have tilted their support to the majority Sunnis in the country.
On December 3, 2009, a bomb killed 26 people en route from Moscow to St. Petersberg. Wayne Madsen explained why the "usual suspects" --namely an expatriot Jewish tycoon (and by implication his Mossad-CIA connections) may have been primary organizers and beneficiaries:
December 3, 2009 -- Was Russia train bombing a false flag op designed to garner Russian support for U.S. Afghanistan surge?
Questions have arisen in the U.S. intelligence community about the terrorist claims being made by a heretofore unknown Islamic group in southern Russia that has claimed credit for the bombing of a passenger train, the Nevsky Express, en route from Moscow to St. Petersburg. The bombing, which killed 26 people, was claimed to have been carried out by guerrillas said to be loyal to Chechen Muslim leader Doku Umarov.
Killed in the attacks were Boris Yevstratikov, head of the Russian State Reserves Agency, and Sergei Tarasov, a former deputy governor of St. Petersburg. A second bombing at the location of the first injured investigators who were probing the first attack.
However, U.S. intelligence experts who monitor the situation inside Russia point out that Umarov is a Sufi Muslim. Sufis are not the breeding ground for Wahhabi extremists normally found in the ranks of Chechen Islamist ranks and, in fact, are reviled by the Wahhabis and extremist Shi'a Muslims alike. Umarov claimed to fight in Chechnya for independence not religion. In addition, prior to the claim of Chechen involvement in the attacks, only right-wing Russian nationalist groups had claimed responsibility. Moreover, the precision of the attack on a high-speed train have suggested to Russian law enforcement that the attacks were more likely the work of highly-trained and seasoned professionals with intelligence backgrounds in sabotage.
Responsibility for the train bombing was claimed by the "Caucasian Mujahideen." U.S. intelligence experts doubt that the Caucasian Mujahideen actually exists. The unknown group claims that the train bombing is the first in a series of planned attacks on Russian strategic targets, including electrical, gas, and oil lines. The August 17 disaster at the Sayano-Shushenskaya dam, Russia's largest hydro-electric dam in Siberia was also claimed to have been a terrorist attack by people claiming to represent Umarov but Russian authorities said it was caused by an accident. Chechen President Ramzan Kadyrov, a former Chechen guerrilla leader, said he doubted that Umarov was behind the attack but did note that Chechen guerrillas receive support from "foreign special services." Kadyrov did not elaborate on what foreign services were backing the guerrillas.
After the November 2008 terrorist attacks in Mumbai, another unknown group, the "Deccan Mujahideen," claimed responsibility. It was later determined by Indian intelligence that the Deccan Mujahideen was a bogus organization.
U.S. intelligence sources report that previous terrorist attacks, including the 2004 massacre at a school in Beslan, bore the hallmarks of false flag operations designed to whip up Russian anger against Muslims. Exiled Russian tycoon Boris Berezovsky is one individual with the track record and the means to order false flag operations inside Russia. Berezovsky, who reportedly carries an Israeli passport and lives mostly in London, is known to have aided Chechen guerrillas with logistical and financial support.
The timing of the bombing is noteworthy due to the fact that an agreement made between President Obama and the Russian government during the July summit in Moscow permitting as many as 4500 U.S. transport flights over Russian airspace to Afghanistan has not yet been ratified because of disagreements over over details. The bombing of the Russian train came just days before Obama announced a U.S. troop surge of 30,000 into Afghanistan. NATO is expected to boost its troop levels by 5000. The opening of Russian airspace to American and NATO flights to and from Afghanistan at this juncture would be highly advantageous to Pentagon war planners.

Will Afghanistan Be Worse Than Vietnam? 7 Tough Questions to Ask Obama Before He Sinks Us Into a New Quagmire By William Astore, Tomdispatch.com. Posted April 20, 2009.
Such a Waste of Fine Infantry by Jeff Huber. American troops accomplish nothing by moving through villages except that they continue to antagonize locals and make themselves targets. This is Vietnam all over again.
From the late 1950's to the mid 1960's, William J. Lederer and Eugene Burdick published works such as Our Own Worst Enemy, Sarkhan, Nation of Sheep and the Ugly American which described how the State Department, U.S. military, and CIA were too constrained by internal bureaucratic politics and their own fossilized view of the world to avoid self-defeating behavior in Southeast Asian countries. Short term appearances were always more important than real long term results. What they wrote about regarding America's misadventures in IndoChina back then does not appear to have changed a bit in the Iraq-Af-Pak-Iran theater today.
This is bad enough, but worst of all, there is a much deeper, much more sinister dimension behind American foreign policy in which Zionists who control the America's central bank, national media, and other strategic choke points have characteristically slipped their manipulative tentacles into all sides of a conflict.
As one example of Vietnam-era skulduggery, Mossad-CIA ran the opium trade out of the Golden Triangle. According to former Green Beret Col. Dan Marvin, he was prohibited from interdicting freighters headed up the Mekong River into Cambodia that supplied arms to the enemy because these same ships returned down the river (also to be left untouched) filled with CIA opium. Similarly, Mossad-CIA has revitalized opium production in Afghanistan, which had been mostly eradicated under Taliban rule. Now Afghanistan is a major global supplier. The U.S. Army even posts its own soldiers to guard opium fields.
This skulduggery is an old story. As an example, the works of Henry Ford, Dr. Anthony Sutton, or the video The Money Masters (see Chapter 33) describe skulduggery where New York-based Zionist money masters funded Bolshevism while publicly pretending to oppose it. Michael Collins Piper provides important insights into other longstanding patterns of skulduggery in his books The New Babylon, the New Jerusalem, and The Judas Goats. So does Col. Donn de Grand Pre in his "Barbarians Inside the Gates" snake book series.
An important objective of this Mission of Conscience series is to show how American policy is totally corrupt from the top down. Until American officials can openly discuss 9/11 as a Mossad-CIA inside job, and all the other false flag missions covered in this series, how can they intelligently discuss anything that has to with Iraq-Af-Pak-Iran? It is like trying to work a physics problem where your most important variables are withheld from you.
As I have discussed else where in this series, if we are going to conduct a thorough and no-holds barred intelligence analysis of this situation, we would also need to address strong ideological and sociological dimensions behind all of America's major problems. On the ideological side, ever since 1861 America has been on the hell-bound train towards unlimited Federal government, "justified" by "environmental top down" neo-Jacobin ideology that is diametrically opposite the "genetic bottom up" paleoconservatism and classical liberalism of the Founding Fathers.
In his 15 Dec 2009 article "Finis," William S. Lind made a profound observation.
The best book on where America now stands and where it is going is J. H. Elliott's The Count-Duke of Olivares: A Statesman in an Age of Decline. Olivares was what we would now call the prime minister of Spain in much of the first half of the 17th century. His era saw Spain go from "the only superpower" to a downward plunge that lasted three centuries. Unusually, the more one looks at the details, the more the parallel holds. Then, as now, the root problem was the same: the court was controlled by interests that lived off the nation's decay.
Back in 1995 William Lind published "From Nightmare 1995 to My Utopian 2050" which forecast the decline and eventual break up of America in broader social terms. The following year Thomas Chittum published the landmark work: "Civil War Two: The Coming Breakup of America" that analyzed America's terminal internal contradictions in greater detail. I feel privileged to have written the Jan 2007 Publisher's Preface to the ebook version of his work.
Before this, a number of other major writers on the Rights saw the Zombie March from
a broad social and historical perspective as well.
The late John Tyndall, one of the founders of the British National Party, predicted in the early 1990's that both Britain and America would eventually hit the rocks, and that following a breakup, nationalism would come roaring back across the white world. The evil Zionist genie would eventually get put back in its bottle, and the 21st century would end up looking more like the 19th century than the 20th.
The late Dr. William Pierce had a similar viewpoint in his November 7, 1992 interview "America Since World War II" with Kevin Alfred Strom on American Dissident Voices. Pierce correctly predicted in his writings in the early 1990's that the computer revolution would be incapable of economically bailing out America. He also predicted that as the Zionist-dominated, multi-racial, multi-cultural empire continued its decline, and as whites continued to miscegenate and approach minority status, that Jews would become increasingly more dangerous. The massive Wall Street corruption and bailouts in recent years, combined with 9/11 and the spate of ensuing Mossad-CIA false flag attacks have all proven him on target.
More recently many individuals such as Capt. May, Col. Donn de Grand Pre, Michael Collins Piper, myself have asked how America can achieve victory anywhere in the world when it is held in the grip of Zionists and corrupt minions who continually work for its destruction from within?
Zio-America's Zombie March Towards Stalingrad II
The highly respected American military analyst William S. Lind has published articles that explain how a possible "Stalingrad" analogy is coming into sharper view over time. After providing extracts from his work, I will try to supplement it with my own perspectives.
Fallujah: Little Stalingrad December 22, 2004
After the first Marine assault on Fallujah in April – an assault that was wisely abandoned, since it threatened to set off a nationwide uprising against the occupation – Pat Buchanan said that Fallujah will probably mark the high water line of neocon imperialism. I think the outcome of the second battle of Fallujah will confirm that prescient assessment. Just as Stalingrad marked the turning point in Fall Barbarossa, so Fallujah will go down in history as the "tipping point" in America's Last Crusade.
Hitler made a prime political objective out of maintaining an aura of "invincibility" for the Wehrmacht. His forces just had to take the "City named for Stalin" after he publicly declared it an objective. Politics now trumped tactical considerations, such as the fact that the "meat-grinder" reality of urban combat threw away the Wehrmacht's principle advantages in mobile warfare in open country. Germany was so outnumbered in men and material compared to the Soviets and their allies that it was insane to engage in any form of urban warfare for any extended period anywhere for Germany.
Similarly, U.S. government leaders also appear obsessed with appearing "invincible. " Surrounded by a sea of hostile Muslims, Israel is especially concerned that America maintain this image. Zionist neocons in America are also using invincibility bluster to try to keep up the house of economic cards from collapsing.
Despite all of this, America is engaged in an attritional land war in Asia --exactly what Gen. Douglas MacArthur warned President Kennedy about, while suffering economic as well as manpower disparities that make its Asian land war policies insane.
Important Distinctions September 23, 2005
Ambassador Freeman is correct in his description of the consequences of America’s invasion of Iraq. It is America’s Syracuse Expedition. Just as Sparta was happy to see Athens waste its strength against a meaningless opponent, Syracuse, so al Qaeda regards our war in Iraq as a gift from Allah. Far from wanting to drive us out of Iraq (or Afghanistan), it prays we stay in both places indefinitely, our military bleeding from the death of one thousand cuts.
Hitler had other viable strategic options besides focusing on the Stalingrad meat-grinder. Given Germany's progress in developing the atomic bomb, as reflected in the work The Black Sun, he could have focused on conserving his forces to play for time. In addition, panzer mobile warfare was always at its best when it ignored fixed positions like Stalingrad and instead focused upon opportunistically slicing up and encircling the enemy into pockets in open country. Rather than sustain the attack into Stalingrad, it actually may have worked better for the German Army to have feigned retreat. Erwin Rommel did this repeatedly in North Africa, only to stage lightening counterattacks that surprised and sliced up his enemies.
America has already obligated over three trillion dollars in its Iraq and Afghanistan misadventures. On a grand strategic level, that money would have been vastly better spent if invested if such alternative strategic objectives had been pursued as alternative energy, the mobile robotics revolution, and the general rebuilding of America's industrial base. Like the Greek Syracuse adventure, or Hitler's obsession with completely taking the city of Stalingrad, the Iraq-Af-Pak-Iran misadventure comprises "the greatest strategic disaster in American history," as former NSA Director LtGen William Odom so aptly put it.
Collapse of the Flanks August 12, 2006
For a military historian, the question arises: will history see Iraq as America’s Stalingrad? If we kick the analogy up a couple of levels, to the strategic and grand strategic, there are parallels. Both the German and the American armies were able largely to take, but not hold, the objective. Both had too few troops. Both Berlin and Washington underestimated their enemy’s ability to counter-attack. Both committed resources they needed elsewhere and could not replace to a strategically unimportant objective. Finally, both entrusted their flanks to weak allies – and to luck.
Let us hope that, unlike von Paulus, our commanders know when to get out, regardless of orders from a leader who will not recognize reality.
Author's note: I view America's "strategic flanks' on a much more abstract level than something highly tangible like the Soviet armies which encircled von Paulus at Stalingrad, or possible Iranian and other Muslim forces that could envelop Americans following an attack on Iran.
Our ultimate "flanks" are found within our economy. It could implode much like the former Soviet Union and leave the U.S. Government so broke that it may be tempted, like the Russians, to sell some aircraft carriers for cash. Over 80% of the armed force may get laid off. Most U.S. Air Force aircraft may have to reduce their sorties by over 70%, much like what happened with former Soviet forces in the early 1990's. America has virtually no gold reserves, and with the prospect of ever-skyrocketing debt, a worthless currency, and greatly reduced industrial capacity, America could find itself so broke that it can barely afford to feed the troops currently in Iraq and Afghanistan, much less afford to supply them with adequate ammunition, fuel, or spare parts.
At that point, the threat of encirclement and annihilation by Muslim forces could become very real.
Operation Anabasis March 29, 2007
...We are propping up a shaky local regime in a civil war [in Iraq]. Our local allies are of dubious loyalty, and the surrounding population is not friendly. Our lines of communication, supply and retreat all run south, to Kuwait, through Shiite militia country. They then extend on through the Persian Gulf, which is called that for a reason. If those lines are cut, many of our troops have only one way out, the same way Xenophon took, up through Kurdish country and Asia Minor (now Turkey) to the coast.
What is the chance that could happen? Higher than anyone in Washington or the senior military seems to think. Two events, separately or combined, pose a credible threat of severing our forces lines of communication. The first is an American or Israeli attack on Iran (Iran has publicly announced that it will respond to an Israeli attack as if the U.S. were also involved). Iran potentially could cut our supply lines by encouraging Iraqi Shiite militias to attack them, by infiltration into southern Iraq of the Revolutionary Guards, by attacking with the regular Iranian Army or by blocking the Persian Gulf with mines, coastal batteries and naval forces. Regarding the first option, a British journalist asked Mr. al-Hakim, leader of SCIRI and the Badr Brigades and a recent White House guest, what his militia would do if America attacked Iran. "Then," he replied, "we would do our duty."
The logistical nightmare in Afghanistan is even worse than in Iraq. Dr. Paul Craig Roberts reports that it costs $400 to deliver a gallon of gas in Afghanistan, and Eric Margolis reports that it costs the U.S. $1 million a year for every soldier it maintains in country. Despite this, Obama is surging more troops into Afghanistan. Increased guerilla activity has made it harder to truck supplies in through Pakistan. In fact, as Wayne Madsen noted regarding the December training bombing incident, America has had to negotiate new supply routes through Russian territory.
Once Hitler's forces got encircled in Stalingrad by Soviet pincers, the Luftwaffe chief Herman Goering stated that the Luftwaffe could deliver adequate supplies by air so that the German Army could stay in place rather than immediately have to fight westward to link back up with friendly forces. . He was proven completely wrong, especially as the Soviet Air Force began to increasingly establish air superiority over the Stalingrad sector.
Don't Miss the Train June 24, 2008
...Faced with the possibility of an Iranian strategic victory, courtesy of the American troops who overthrew Saddam, the U.S. government is likely to take the fool's way out, escalation. Inside the White House bubble, the argument for attacking Iran might become irresistible, driven as it would be by panic. As I have warned repeatedly, the outcome of such folly could very well include the loss of the American army now in Iraq, not to mention another doubling in the price of oil. As usual under the second-worst President in American history (Woodrow Wilson still ranks number one), we have seen the enemy, and he is us. All we have to do to get out of Iraq with some dignity while strengthening the government we installed there is push that government into ordering us home. That should be easy enough; what intransigence in the ongoing negotiations cannot achieve a few million Swiss francs should certainly manage. Instead, we will refuse to board the last train out, then blow up the railroad. If it were happening to someone else, it would all be comical.
300 April 16, 2009
...There is no chance America will adopt a defensive grand strategy or reform its military to move from the Second to the Third Generation – a necessary though not sufficient step in confronting 4GW – so long as the current Washington Establishment remains in power. That Establishment is drunk on hubris, cut off from the world beyond court politics and thoroughly corrupted by Pentagon "business as usual," which knows how to buy whatever political support it needs. Like all establishments, it sees any real change as a threat, to be avoided. So long as it reigns, nothing will change.
What are the implications of these three observations? Militarily, they portend continued failure and defeat. We will fail to get out of Iraq before the next phase of that war begins, or, worse, an Israeli attack on Iran costs us the army we have in Iraq. We will be defeated in Afghanistan, because we will refuse to scale our strategic objectives to what is possible and we will continue to alienate the population with our firepower-intensive way of war. We will push Pakistan over the brink into disintegration, which will be a strategic catastrophe of the first order. We will ignore the disintegration of the state in Mexico, while importing Mexico's disorder through our ineffective border controls. We will not even be able to stop Somali pirates. What does it say about us when the whole nation rejoices because the U.S. Navy, the most powerful navy on earth, defeated four Somali teenagers?
It does not end with this. These foreign policy failures and military defeats – or even more embarrassing "victories" – become just two of a larger series of crises, including the economic crisis (depression followed by runaway inflation), foreign exchange crisis (collapse of the dollar), political crisis (no one in the Establishment knows what to do, but the Establishment offers the voters no alternative to itself), energy crisis, etc. Together, these discrete crises snowball into a systemic crisis, which is what happens when the outside world demands greater change than the political system permits. At that point, the political system collapses and is replaced by something else. In the old days, it meant a change of dynasty. What might it mean today? My guess is a radical devolution, at the conclusion of which life is once again local.
“Calling President Jefferson Davis” 17 June 2009
Secession is in the air. In Texas, a Republican governor has dared breathe the word. Vermont has an active and growing secessionist movement. Oregon, Washington and British Columbia already call themselves Cascadia...
...The crisis of legitimacy of the state has not passed America by. Washington pretends to offer "democracy," but both parties are largely one party: the Establishment party. Its game is remaining the Establishment and enjoying the pleasures thereof, not governing the country. The only politics that count are court politics; America outside the beltway exists only as an annoying distraction. As both the economy and the culture crash, the Establishment says, "What is that to us?"
A collapse of the American state is not impossible. But the lines along which most secessionists see it breaking up are overly optimistic. ..
The Taliban's Air Force, September 15, 2009
The Taliban's air force recently delivered another devastating strike, hitting two fuel tanker trucks that had been captured by local Taliban-affiliated forces in northern Afghanistan. As usual, many civilians were killed, inflaming the local population against NATO forces in an area that had been relatively quiet. The air strike was thus not merely tactical but operational in its effects.
As is always the case with the Taliban's air force, the air strike was a "pseudo-op." A pseudo-op is where one side dresses up in the other side's uniforms or otherwise duplicates his signatures, then does something that works against the goals of the simulated party.
You say you did not know the Taliban had an air force? It has a very powerful air force, not restricted to traditional flying carpets but employing all the latest combat aircraft: F-15s, F-16s, F-18s, Harriers, Tornados, the works. That air force has been one of the main factors in the Taliban's resurgence. Many of the strike missions it has carried out have had positive results (for the Talibs) at the operational and moral levels, if not always at the tactical and physical levels of war.
Adolf Hitler was also his own worst enemy in terms of the very arrogant and abusive way he initially treated occupied Slavic peoples. Many historians believe that if he had supported nationalists in Ukraine and Belarus, to include arming their own national liberation armies, he would have had adequate forces to smash Stalin rather than get "Stalingraded." By the time Hitler realized his error and created a viable Russian Liberation Army in 1944, it was too little too late to affect the outcome of the war.
Similarly Americans have been extremely heavy-handed in their treatment of Afghans. In late 2005, Australian journalist John Martinkus narrated the documentary "Psychological Warfare in Afghanistan: Atrocities committed under US Command." He stated:
"This is how the Americans are now fighting in Afghanistan - loaded up with guns and loud music. The racks of speakers on top of this Humvee are a bizarre weapon dreamt up by the army's PsyOps unit - experts in psychological warfare. The idea is that the music will flush the Taliban out of their hiding places in the mountains....These soldiers have clearly been trained to denigrate and enrage Muslims. Such blatant disrespect for the corpses of their enemy is a breach of the Geneva Convention. It also heightens the perception of local people that the Americans are just as barbarous as the Taliban say they are."
Eric Margolis reported in his 27 Oct 2009 article “Two Puppets Are Better Than One” how the U.S. efforts to develop "democracy" have been a joke Afghanistan:
As I predicted well before the August, 2009 election, it was all a great big fraud within a larger fraud designed to fool American, Canadian and European voters into believing democracy had flowered in Afghanistan. Cynical Afghans knew the vote would be rigged. Most Pashtun, the nation’s ethnic majority, didn’t vote at all, either from disgust with the Western-imposed Karzai regime, or because of threats by Taliban which damned the vote as a treasonous act.
The "election" turned out to be a hugely embarrassing fiasco for Karzai and his Western backers. The Soviets were much more subtle when they rigged Afghan elections during their ten-year occupation.
To no surprise, Hamid Karzai won. But his supporters went overboard in stuffing ballot boxes to avoid a possible runoff with rival Dr. Abdullah Abdullah, another American ally. The Karzai and Abdullah camps, both Washington’s men, were bitterly feuding over division of US aid and drug money that has totally corrupted Afghanistan.
The vote was discredited, thwarting the Obama administration’s plans to use the election as justification for sending more troops to Afghanistan. So now the White House’s Plan B is to force its two feuding "assets," Karzai and Abdullah, into a coalition or "unity government." But two puppets on a string are no more effective than one – and maybe less so. In Afghanistan, ethnicity and tribe trump everything else. Karzai is a Pashtun, but has almost no roots in tribal politics. Most Pashtun see him as a Quisling and traitor.
Taliban resistance has only grown during the period of American "nation-building" in Afghanistan to the point that the 21 Dec 2009 article "Taliban Claims Control Over 80 Percent of Afghanistan" talks about how the Taliban are increasingly setting up credible alternative governments.
If the U.S. military troops can be conditioned to do such self-defeating, unnecessarily destructive things in Afghanistan and Iraq, is it unreasonable to fear the heavy-handed domestic national martial law clamp down scenarios addressed in Chapter 31?
The First Front October 30, 2009:
The Washington Times ran a header above this story that said "Second Front." In fact, gangs such as La Familia are the first front. What is coming over our southern border is far more important to America's future security that any of our wars in sandboxes half a world away. The story quotes Attorney General Eric Holder as saying, "Indeed, while this cartel may operate from Mexico, the toxic reach of its operations extends to nearly every state within our own country."
Real national security is security in our homes, neighborhoods and cities. Unfortunately, the Washington Establishment continues to define "national security" as attaining world dominion. So long as it does so, it will continue to prop open the door for La Familia and other gangs, both imported and home-grown, which understand that what is real is local.
The "Second Front" is a phrase used during World War II, whose second large-scale combat phase commenced with the Allied invasion of Normandy and the Allied sweep through France. The idea was that the Russians had inflicted enough casualties on the Germans --80% of their total casualties during the war-- that the Reich was now vulnerable to the opening up of a whole new major front in France.
There is a growing risk that the U.S. military and economy will become so depleted as a consequence of its Iraq-Af-Pak-Iran misadventure that some time after a hyperinflationary depression hits and renders the dollar completely worthless, America will eventually come apart at the seams and be reformed into separate countries.
Seen from this perspective, the Taliban might be viewed as fighting an indigenous person's "continuation war" against a neo-Jacobin federal empire that started in 1861. This may be a strained analogy, to be sure, but consider that various Cherokee Indian tribes fought for greater indigenous local self determination alongside the Confederacy, just as the Taliban is fighting for localized (mostly Pashtun) tribal sovereignty. Southern states also fought for their "indigenous" states' rights.
There may be another possible "Second Front" forming with the rise of China. In the article "China’s Manifest Destiny" by Sascha Matuszak, December 26, 2009, the author quotes the Asia Times article "China’s unassailable power in Central Asia" by M.K. Bhdadrakumar:
China’s successes in Turkmenistan, Uzbekistan and Kazakhstan are attributed to "15 years of patient, painstaking diplomacy" that have finally reaped rewards in the form of increased energy security for an energy starved nation. The key here is that China’s energy security comes at the expense of Russia’s traditional dominance and America’s more recent foray into the Great Game. Most striking of all is the gross miscalculation by US strategists that Central Asian countries would be wary of China and feel safer striking deals with the US. Where they got this idea is beyond me: America and Russia have bombed Afghanistan into bits and pieces and the US is about to increase their troop presence to at least 30,000 and we are supposed to be a safer option than China?
A big part of the "strategic hell" of the Iraq-Af-Pak-Iran theater is the possibility that China could some day sit back and endlessly feed arms and ammunition to rebels who slowly but surely grind down America caught in the quicksand of the Gen. Douglas MacArthur nightmare of permanent land war in Asia. Continued leaks can sink battleships.
America can get into even greater trouble if China ever returns the party favor that America showed the Russians by equipping the anti-Soviet Taliban with Stingers or by supplying today's insurgents with advanced anti-aircraft and anti-vehicular weapons. After all, the Stingers were a major reason why the Russians called it quits in Afghanistan.
The False Flag-Friendly "Derivative" Military
Having now explained America's mental-sclerotic repetition of Vietnam-related mistakes and its zombie march towards Stalingrad II, I would like to devote the remainder of this chapter towards applying towards the U.S. military the same kind of "derivative" analysis that I have already applied to other American institutions, such as Congress (Chapter 29), its financial system (Chapter 33) and its medical-big pharma complex (Chapter 36).
For those who have come in late, as a refresher on how the "derivative" concept applies to false flag attacks, a "derivative" on Wall Street suggests a highly exploitive refinement of an underlying instrument designed to yield speculative gain. When we view this concept on a more abstract intellectual level and apply it to the military, a false flag attack is a "derivative" of a normal military exercise, used for speculative (quick) gain by the power elite. It parasitically feeds off public credulity created by honest military operations the same way that Wall Street derivatives parasitically feed off public credulity created by conservative financial investments and sound money systems.
We can also apply the "derivative" concept to the U.S. military from other perspectives. For example, to extent that the U.S. military has become estranged from original citizen-soldier concepts that gave substance to the oath to protect and defend the U.S. Constitution, it can be more easily infiltrated and run by hostile foreign intelligence agencies like the Mossad. It is also less capable of challenging the growth of Evil Government. (
In Chapter 6 I provided a libertarian analysis regarding how limited government can transition into ponzi government and from there into evil government. False flag attacks are an important symptom of Evil Government.)
Also, on a more artistic and philosophical level, the idea that members of a military force are willing to kill their own personnel to secure some tactical benefit has often been used as a motif of total depravity and stinking rottenness within military organizations.
Some examples among fictional Hollywood movies include The Damned by Luchino Visconti, in which S.S. troops kill S.A. personnel in an allusion to the historic "Night of the Long Knives." Other examples include The McKenzie Break where German P.O.W's collapse a ceiling on their fellow prisoners to create a diversion to make an escape, The Eye of the Needle where an Abwehr agent stabs a fellow agent in order to create a distraction to aid an escape, The Cross of Iron, where a German commander machine-guns fellow soldiers returning from a patrol to kill potential whistle-blowers, and Paths of Glory, where a WWI French general deliberately orders a futile infantry assault to gain political points in French newspapers and later executes some soldiers as scapegoats for the failed attack who had the common sense not to waste themselves.
As another example, Alexander Solzhenitsyn delivered an especially powerful indictment of the Soviet system when he described Stalin's vicious purge of his own officer corps. In Inside the Aquarium, Viktor Suvorov claims that a major reason why Soviet Military Intelligence grew so large relative to the KGB is because the Soviet high command felt it needed a large internal intelligence apparatus to protect itself from another possible purge conducted by the KGB.
A “derivative” military vulnerable to the 9/11 Mossad-CIA inside job typically reflects subversion by major special interests quietly at war with the rest of American society
Admiral Thomas Moorer, former Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, once commented.
"I've never seen a President -- I don't care who he is -- stand up to [Israel] ... They always get what they want. The Israelis know what is going on all the time. I got to the point where I wouldn't write anything down. If the American people understood what a grip these people have got on our government, they would rise up in arms." (quoted by Richard Curtiss in A Changing Image: American Perceptions of the Arab-Israeli Dispute).
In his 11 March 2009 article “Rounding Up the Usual Suspects” William S. Lind wrote:
[Col.] John Boyd used to say, "It is not true the Pentagon has no strategy. It has a strategy, and once you understand what that strategy is, everything it does makes sense. The strategy is, don't interrupt the money flow, add to it." That was true before the Obama administration, it will be true while it is in office, and it will still be true when it ends. The people it has appointed to the Pentagon – again, Secretary Gates excepted – know the strategy, benefit from it and will continue it. They will defend it as if their future incomes depended on it, which, of course, they do.
At this stage in American history, the Pentagon is actually cutting its own throat over the long run by diverting funds towards wars and armaments that could instead be more wisely invested in rebuilding America’s industrial base, which has slipped from approximately a third of the economy to less than 10% in the last four decades. In the long run, military power correlates highly with domestic industrial capabilities.
A “derivative” military vulnerable to the 9/11 Mossad-CIA inside job typically plays “bait and switch” in terms of basic values in addition to permitting its exercises to go “live” as false flag attacks.
In his article “Surprised By Disaster” Fred Reed explains how America’s service academies promote authoritarian, militaristic thinking that is inconsistent with civilian “republican virtue” concepts that promote free thinking and genuine analysis. It is bad enough that even the American scientific community has significant problems achieving rationality, but the military establishment is even worse:
In re Afghanistan, why, you might ask, is the world’s hugest, expensivest, most begadgeted military unable to defeat a few thousand angry tribesmen armed with AKs and RPGs?
Easy: Character. The men running the war are mentally the wrong ones to do it...what kind of kid wants to go for robot training at West Point or boat school at Annapolis? Statistically these kids are bright, gregarious, “motivated” (a favorite military word), athletic, perhaps Eagle Scouts. Psychologically they want (need?) to live under a regime of rigid conformity and obedience that would appear as absurd as it is if we were not accustomed to seeing it among soldiers. That is, they are autoselected not to think for themselves or question decisions from above. They are exactly what universities exist not to produce. The service academies reinforce these unfortunate characteristics. Their schooling consists of four years of learning what to think, not how to think. There are hours of running in formation (“If I die on the Russian front….”), close-order drill, manual of arms (“Hen-spection…harms!”). Why? There is no military value in being able to shift your rifle from shoulder to shoulder crisply. Like the endless inspections of everything, all of this participation in the hive inculcates groupishness and a curious sense of safety in conformity. The effects are remarkable and, from a standpoint of civilization, undesirable. Large authoritarian organizations make easier the compartmentalization of morality. A colonel typically will be a good neighbor, civic-minded, responsible, unlikely to steal your silverware or kick your dog. If the Pentagon tells him to bomb a city he has never heard of and has no reason to bomb, killing people who pose no threat to him, he will. He feels no individual responsibility for atrocious behavior ordered from above. “I vas only followink orders,” the Nuremberg defense, is the bedrock of military ethics, if any.
...America’s problem is not that its generals prepare for the last war, but that they don’t prepare for it, and then fight it again the same way.
This is same kind of compartmented mentality that can be duped into believing that Osama Bin Laden is still alive and well, or that one should never discuss Israeli influence over Congress or the Pentagon because it is “anti-Semitic,” or that we need to consider as potential terrorists such Americans at home as demonstrators, returning Iraq veterans, and anti-abortionists.
This same mentality often finds it hard to comprehend how the hallmark of a true patriot is one who can take a stand against his own misguided government.
Early American citizen-soldiers had strong ties to ethnic civilian communities with deep cultural and historical roots, such as the New England Puritans, Pennsylvania "Dutch," and Scottish Clans, and other groups identified in the book Albion's Seed. These communities provided important alternative moral and political compass points outside military organizations.
In contrast, most Americans today who join the military come from a multi-racial, multi-cultural, Zionist-programmed society where they have been "ethnically cleansed" on a psychological level. They often adopt the military as their surrogate father figure, much like the way lab chimps resort to "terry cloth mothers" in the place of the original.
Despite all the talk about adhering to the Constitution and " ethics," all too many military personnel are socially, economically, and emotionally incapable of taking an independent stand from anyone at the highest level --particularly Zionist neocons like Paul Wolfowitz or Richard Perle --who order them to commit and cover up war crimes, or engage in other behavior that is fundamentally destructive to traditional American conservative values.
Ironically, many recruiting ads for the services appeal to basic values such as "patriotism," "honor," and "valor." They also frequently invoke early American patriotic symbols. However, once on active duty, many servicemen discover that these appeals were made merely as empty platitudes, and the real values practiced by the military are simply whatever orders are passed down from above --starting with high level Zionist neocons.
In the13 Jan 2010 interview by Dr. James Fetzer with Carl Herman titled "Iraq, Iran, and the CIA," Herman referenced his article "National Guard ad revives Nazi oath to Hitler: `Always place mission first,' not US Constitution."
In 2003, the US Army adapted the “Soldier’s Creed” to program soldiers to shift their Oath of Enlistment from “support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic,” to the heel-clicking, non-thinking, dictator-obeying, “I will always place the mission first.”
This directly states that the FIRST duty of an American soldier is to achieve the mission dictated by military leadership, NOT the defense of the US Constitution. Brain-washing soldiers to place the mission first, that is, “just follow orders” given by der Fuehrer (“the leader” in German) rather than being responsible for obeying the Constitution and laws of war dramatizes the US shift into fascism.
This fascist propaganda is highlighted in the National Guard’s new 2-minute ad playing in movie theaters, shown below.
Nazi German soldiers had such an oath:
"I swear by God this sacred oath that I shall render unconditional obedience to Adolf Hitler, the Führer of the German Reich, supreme commander of the armed forces, and that I shall at all times be prepared, as a brave soldier, to give my life for this oath."
Another way to say this: “I will always place the mission first, as dictated by the Commander-in-Chief, Adolf Hitler.
The US Soldier’s Creed states the Army Values; its first component is “loyalty” to the US Constitution. But the creed and the new commercial favors “place the mission first” in its communication rather than “protect and defend the US Constitution.” And again, stating the "mission" dictated by the leader is first rather than the US Constitution is revealing.
I am an American Soldier.
I am a Warrior and a member of a team.
I serve the people of the United States, and live the Army Values.
I will always place the mission first.
I will never accept defeat.
I will never quit.
I will never leave a fallen comrade.
I am disciplined, physically and mentally tough, trained and proficient in my warrior tasks and drills.
I always maintain my arms, my equipment and myself.
I am an expert and I am a professional.
I stand ready to deploy, engage, and destroy, the enemies of the United States of America in close combat.
I am a guardian of freedom and the American way of life.
I am an American Soldier.
Another way to say this: “I will always place the mission first, as dictated by the Commander-in-Chief, President (blank).”
“I will always place the mission first, as dictated by the Commander-in-Chief, Adolf Hitler.”
“I will always place the mission first, as dictated by the Commander-in-Chief, President X.”
Beyond any reasonable doubt, current US wars are unlawful. Stop and research this if you are unclear on the simple rules of lawful war and why the US is in obvious violation. You cannot argue you are a responsible citizen if you do not understand these laws that govern trillions of our long-term tax dollars and so dramatically affect millions of lives...
Carl Herman's emphasis on an ultimate duty to higher law appears to be slanted towards the anarcho-libertarian perspective. One can also feel a higher loyalty to an ancestral community, or "the national interest," both of which reflect more of a paleoconservative viewpoint.
Either way, the main area where I agree with Carl Herman is my concern about how the "I will always place the mission first" provision of "The Soldier's Creed" can be exploited by Zionist neocons up the chain of command who are working against America's national interests in furtherance of New World Order dictatorship.
This ad suggests an ideologically "derivative" military establishment on at least four major counts
In the ad above, the "salt and pepper" couples, the tripe about "Reveal Character," and the mention of a job description for a "Corrections Officer --Internment/Resettlement Specialist" suggests at least four ways, even if only a subliminal level, that the U.S. National Guard has become 180 degrees removed from traditional American conservative warrior values, and hence highly "derivative."
First, the soldier is sworn to protect and defend the Constitution. Yet we can image a scenario where a tyrannical President orders a national martial law crack down with the intent of stripping political dissidents of their constitutional rights by herding them into FEMA camps. We can also imagine it likely that National Guard soldiers trained as "Corrections Officers --Internment/Resettlement Specialists" would be the first called upon to assist in abrogating Constiutional rights for others.
Secondly, throughout history most human societies have been tribal. Most tribes are racially and ethnically homogeneous, since they evolve as extended families. Most warriors serve their tribal interests, which typically means defending not only their physical territory, but such intangible territory as shared "culture," "religion," and "ethnicity." Warriors also historically defend the "tangibles" of "race" and the reproductive capacity of their womenfolk. Historically, one of the greatest humiliations a warrior can face is to watch the women folk of his tribe either get raped by aliens, or voluntarily abandon him for members of an alien tribe. Conversely, aggressors have historically sought to "kill the men and rape the women."
In the article "Why Nations Fight," Jan 1991 American Renaissance, William Robertson Boggs comments: "Men fight and die for their people and way of life because there is nothing more horrible than cultural and national obliteration."
Black people have enormous ethnic-genetic distance relative to whites and have never organically evolved within a similar tribal setting. In 19th century America, showing two couples consisting of black men with white women in uniform would have been considered a cruel joke at best for recruiting white people into military service, since from their frame of reference it would have symbolized the worst and most degrading form of defeat imaginable.
Third, throughout history traditional societies have been extremely reluctant to expose women to combat. A major reason is that women comprise a major evolutionary constraint on reproduction. One man can theoretically impregnate 100 women to produce 100 babies within a year, but 100 men cannot produce more than one baby if only one woman is left. Therefore, when it comes to war, men are vastly more expendable than women in a traditional society conscious of reproductive constraints. Conversely, whenever a tribe seeks to wipe out another tribe, historically the first thing they focus upon is killing as many women as possible. Hence, for the U.S. military to depict women recruits in camouflage field attire alongside a male soldier, is a major abberation by historical standards. Male warriors historically exist to protect women and keep them in the rear, not have them serve side-by-side.
Fourth, the slogan "Refine Talent, Reveal Character, Realize Potential" displayed in the context of the salt-and-pepper pair, not to mentioned the broader political context of state national guard units who have been commandeered by Feds to fight a bogus "Global War on Terror" for Israel in the Middle East, all of this would have come across as pure Orwellian double-speak to most white American soldiers who ever lived between the early colonial era up until the forced school integration of the mid-1960's. Most would agree that real "character" would consist of resisting the Zombie March to Stalingrad II, the domestic police state, and the Zionist New World Order agenda for the obliteration of all nationalities and ethnic-genetic interests under a One World Government.
A “derivative” military vulnerable to the 9/11 Mossad-CIA inside job is a heavily micro-managed 2nd generation operation lacking in the decentralized decision-making ability and initiative necessary to successfully wage 3rd and 4th generation warfare.
In his article “Keeping Our Infantry Alive,” William Lind describes how American infantry tactics remain fairly primitive along Second Generation lines:
…virtually all American infantry are trained in Second Generation tactics. The Second Generation reduces all tactics to one tactic: bump into the enemy and call for fire. The French, who invented the Second Generation, summarize it as, "Firepower conquers, the infantry occupies." The supporting firepower, originally artillery, now most often airstrikes, must be massive. If it is not -- as is now the case in Afghanistan, under General McChrystal's directive -- the infantry is in trouble. Everything it has been taught depends on fire support it no longer has. Inevitably, its casualties will rise, and it will often lose engagements.
In my centralization vs. decentralization discussion, I explain how decentralized decision-making can be vitally important even within a military environment: It is interesting how one can find examples of "decentralization" even within the context of what appear to be highly regimented, hierarchical, military behemoths.
In "On War #12" William Lind described an interesting paradox where Nazis encouraged forms insubordination within their own armed forces:
...A Third Generation military focuses outward, on the situation, the enemy, and the result the situation requires, not inward on process and method (in war games in the 19th Century, German junior officers were routinely given problems that could only be solved by disobeying orders). Orders themselves specify the result to be achieved, but never the method ("Auftragstaktik"). Initiative is more important than obedience (mistakes are tolerated, so long as they come from too much initiative rather than too little), and it all depends on self-discipline, not imposed discipline. The Kaiserheer and the Wehrmacht could put on great parades, but in reality they had broken with the culture of order.
I have already addressed Constitutional issues in Chapter 6 and explained in Chapter 29 and Chapter 31 why I believe the oath to protect the Constitution is "necessary but not sufficient" to deal with growing crises in America. The military is a coercive instrument of government in a country that is already suffering the stifling effects of unlimited central government. It is joined at the hip with Mossad-CIA in a country where Zionists manipulate its racial and ethnic problems in all the worst ways. Amidst this terrible mess, the military may eventually feel pressured to step in and take over whether it feels prepared or not.
Unfortunately we face crises on many different levels. In addition to having to deal with the innate criminality of Zionists coming down from the top, the U.S. military is also getting squeezed by rising levels of incompetence and unfitness from the lower strata of society. All these things severely impair the ability of the military to employ rational "loose-tight" balances between centralization and decentralization in fulfilling its various missions, analogous to the "loose-tight" management concepts advocated by Thomas J. Peters and Robert H. Waterman in the book In Search of Excellence.
Just in terms of demographic issues, consider “75 Percent of Young Americans Are Unfit for Military Duty” by Andrea Stone:
WASHINGTON (Nov. 3) -- Are America's youth too fat, dumb or dishonest to defend the nation against its enemies? The latest Army statistics show a stunning 75 percent of military-age youth are ineligible to join the military because they are overweight, can't pass entrance exams, have dropped out of high school or had run-ins with the law. So many young people between the prime recruiting ages of 17 and 24 cannot meet minimum standards that a group of retired military leaders is calling for more investment in early childhood education to combat the insidious effects of junk food and inadequate education. "We've never had this problem of young people being obese like we have today," said Gen. John Shalikashvili, former chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff. He calls the rising number of youth unfit for duty a matter of national security. "We should be concerned about how this will impact this overstretched Army and its ability to recruit."
The article: "Most U.S. youths unfit to serve, data show" by William H. McMichael," Nov 5, 2009, has the following breakdown:
...Only 4.7 million of the 31.2 million 17- to 24-year-olds in a 2007 survey are eligible to enlist, according to a periodic survey commissioned by the Pentagon. This group includes those who have scored in the top four categories on the Armed Forces Qualification Test, or AQFT; eligible college graduates; and qualified college students.
According to the Pentagon, the ineligible population breaks down this way:
•Medical/physical problems, 35 percent.
•Illegal drug use, 18 percent.
•Mental Category V (the lowest 10 percent of the population), 9 percent.
•Too many dependents under age 18, 6 percent.
•Criminal record, 5 percent.
The dumbing down trend in America and rising poverty will only increase unless major changes are made that address all the hard issues ranging from Zionist criminality to the genocide and biological replacement of Nordic-Celtic Americans. Until dangerous deteriorative trends are reversed, this country has no future. Fervent oaths spoken like mantras to “Protect and Defend the Constitution Against all enemies, foreign and domestic…” may be a good start, but that is all they are.
A “derivative” military vulnerable to the 9/11 Mossad-CIA inside job contains corrupt insiders who personally profit in more ways than one
In his article January 21, 2010 article "How Wall St Destroyed Private Medicine" Dr. Paul Craig Roberts observed:
In today’s America, Karl Marx’s criticisms of capitalism are understated. Wherever one looks, the scene is one of the government using taxpayers’ money to enrich private interests. Taxes are collected from people who can barely make it, and the revenues are transferred to multi-millionaires and billionaires. The federal government piles debt on the backs of heavily-burdened and dispossessed Americans in order that investment banksters can pay annual bonuses that exceed the lifetime earnings of most Americans.
Every aspect of the US military has been mined for private profit. Supply and other functions for the military, such as those provided by Halliburton and Blackwater, services once provided by the military itself at low cost, have been privatized. These services now cost many multiples of the cost to taxpayers of in-house military provision.
A derivative military also has problems from within. It encourages "careerism" and "Caesarism." Wikipedia redirects the input of “Caesarism” to “The Decline of the West” where we see the following definition:
“Caesarism is essentially the death of the spirit that originally animated a nation and its institutions. It is marked by a government which is formless irrespective of its de jure constitutional structure. The antique forms are dead, despite the careful maintenance of the institutions; those institutions now have no meaning or weight. The only aspect of governance is the personal power exercised by the Caesar. This is the beginning of the Imperial Age.”
The common denominator behind both of these definitions is someone who “games the system” to get promoted, gain fame, and reap other personal benefits while doing things that degrade the military or society as a whole. There is a parasitic quality to this individual, even though he operates within the gray areas of policy decisions where it may be impossible to convict him of breaking any specific laws.
A derivative military has little or no respect for the kinds of whistle-blowers and Info War martyrs depicted in Chapter 14. In most cases the “Forward Edge of the Battle Area” (FEBA) on this issue involves freedom of speech issues. Please see my article “The First Amendment and the U.S. Military” about battles fought by famous U.S. military leaders in this regard.
Generally speaking, the military is a victim of problems found across all segments of American society. The Zionist media has pushed American society hard in the direction of extreme leftist egalitarianism. High level Jewish psychopaths have also set the tone for American society in many other areas, to include mainstreaming homosexuality and hardcore pornography. As a consequence, most Americans today find it much harder than two centuries ago to judge character. This is true both on an individual level, as well as on a broader ethnic and racial level. Some groups like Zionists are notoriously lacking in chivalrous instincts, which comprise an important component of Western concepts of honor.
The ability to judge character is particularly important in a military environment that often requires sterling traits such as honor and integrity to accomplish tough missions. Both psychopaths --people without core values-- as well as blindly obediant individuals --people who are inflexible -- act as mines and booby traps for individuals dedicated to a life of honor, courage, and commitment.
Honorable individual who genuinely want to find the appropriate balance between the competing needs of our nation as a whole and military departmental interests, as well as adhere to high standards in other areas, have to learn how to smell problem people from a distance in order to successfully navigate around them.
Among other things, in order to preserve the capability to be an effective whistle-blower, it is also very beneficial for a serviceman to develop solid civilian community support, particularly among individuals who can act as proxies on sensitive political issues.
a viable strategy to protect honor often requires patience, foresight,
self-education, and networking skills, especially when it comes to
dealing with the "civilian" side of the "citizen-soldier"
equation. But then again, no one promised a rose garden.
2020-01-30 "INFLATE AND DIE – STOCK COLLAPSE AND GOLD SURGE IMMINENT" by Egon von Greyerz, von Greyerz archive, goldswitzerland.com
2020-01-29 "U.S. posture in the Middle-East: preparing for disaster", thesaker.is
...Uncle Shmuel’s “vision of peace” for the Middle-East
I just listened to the Idiot-in-Chief proudly present “his” Middle-East “peace” plan to Bibi Netanyahu and the world. This latest stunt shows two crucial things about the mind-set in Washington, D.C.:
- There is nothing which the U.S. ruling classes will not do to try to get the favor and support of the Israel Lobby.
- The USA does not care, not even marginally, what the people of the Middle-East think.
This dynamic, which is not anything new, but which received a qualitative “shot of steroids” under Trump, will only further contribute to the inevitable collapse of Empire in the Middle-East. For one thing, all the so-called “U.S. allies” in the region a;; understand that the only country which matters to the USA is Israel, and that all the others count for almost nothing. Furthermore, all the rulers of the Middle-East now also know that being allied to the USA also means being a cheap prostitute for Israel which, in turn, is guaranteed political suicide for any politician not wise enough to smell the trap. Finally, the wars in Afghanistan, Iraq, Yemen, Lebanon and Syria have shown that the “Axis of Kindness” is long on hyperbole and hubris, but very short in terms of actual combat capability.
The simple truth is that the abject brown-nosing of the Israel Lobby that Trump has been engaged in from Day 1 of his term only serves to further isolate and weaken the U.S. in the Middle-East (and beyond, really!).
In this context, how realistic is the Iranian goal of kicking Uncle Shmuel out of the region?
As I said, not realistic at all, if seen solely in the short term. But I hasten to add that it is very realistic in the mid-term if we look at some, but not all, the countries of the region. Finally, in the long term, it is not only realistic, it is inevitable, even if the Iranians themselves don’t do much, or anything at all, to make that happen.
Conclusion: “Israel’s” days are numbered
The Israelis have been feeding us all a steady diet about this or that country or politician being a “new Hitler’ who will either gas 6M Jews “again”, or wants to wipe Israel “off the map” or even engage in a new Holocaust. Gilad Atzmon brilliantly calls this mental disorder “pre-traumatic stress disorder”, and he is spot on. The Israelis mostly used this “preemptive geschrei*” as a way to squeeze out as many concessions (and money) from the western goyim as possible. But in a deep sense, it is possibly that the Israelis are at least dimly aware that their entire project is simply not viable, that you cannot ensure the survival of any state by terrorizing all of your neighbors. Violence, especially vicious, rabid, violence can, indeed, terrorize people, but only for so long. Sooner or later, the human soul will outgrow any fear, no matter how visceral, and will replace that fear by a new and immensely powerful sense of determination.
Here is what Robert Fisk said in distant 2006, 14 years ago:
You heard Sharon, before he suffered his massive stroke, he used this phrase in the Knesset, you know, “The Palestinians must feel pain.” This was during one of the intifadas. The idea that if you continue to beat and beat and beat the Arabs, they will submit, that eventually they’ll go on their knees and give you what you want. And this is totally, utterly self-delusional, because it doesn’t apply anymore. It used to apply 30 years ago, when I first arrived in the Middle East. If the Israelis crossed the Lebanese border, the Palestinians jumped in their cars and drove to Beirut and went to the cinema. Now when the Israelis cross the Lebanese border, the Hezbollah jump in their cars in Beirut and race to the south to join battle with them. But the key thing now is that Arabs are not afraid any more. Their leaders are afraid, the Mubaraks of this world, the president of Egypt, King Abdullah II of Jordan. They’re afraid. They shake and tremble in their golden mosques, because they were supported by us. But the people are no longer afraid.
What was true only for some Arabs in 2006, has now become true for most (maybe even all?) Arabs in 2020. As for the Iranians, they have never had any fear of Uncle Shmuel, they are the ones who “injected” the newly created Hezbollah with this qualitatively new kind of “special courage” (which is the Shia ethos, really!) when this movement was founded.
Empires can survive many things, but once they are not feared anymore, then their end is near. The Iranian strike proved a fundamental new reality to the rest of the world: the USA is much more afraid of Iran than Iran is afraid of the USA. U.S. rulers and politicians will, of course, claim otherwise. But that futile effort to re-shape reality is now doomed to failure, if only because even the Houthis can now openly and successfully defy the combined might of the “Axis of Kindness”.
You can think of U.S. and Israeli leaders as the orchestra on the Titanic: they play well, but they will still get wet and then die.

Caption from gisreportsonline.com web page: "Thousands of mourners took to the streets of Tehran during the funeral of U.S.- and EU-designated terrorist Major General Qassem Soleimani. Iran has vowed to retaliate against the U.S. for the killing of the military commander, but so far its attacks have only been verbal (source: dpa)"
2020-01-12 "Trump’s Killing of Soleimani: New “Worst Mistake in U.S. History” by Dr. Kevin Barrett, unz.com
Donald Trump occasionally utters unspeakable truths. In March 2018 he called Bush Jr.’s decision to invade Iraq “the worst single mistake in US history.” Earlier, Trump had said that Bush should have been impeached for launching that disastrous war.
Yet on January 2 2020 Trump made a much bigger mistake: He launched all-out war with Iran—a war that will be joined by millions of anti-US non-Iranians, including Iraqis—by murdering Gen. Qassem Soleimani, the legendary hero who defeated ISIS, alongside the popular Iraqi commander Abu Mahdi al-Muhandis. Gen. Soleimani was by far the most popular figure in Iran, where he polled over 80% popularity, and throughout much of the Middle East. He was also adored by millions even outside that region, non-Muslims as well as Muslims. Many Christians throughout the world loved Gen. Soleimani, whose campaign against ISIS saved the lives of thousands of their co-religionists. Even Sunni Muslims (the people, not the billionaire playboy sheikhs) generally loved and admired the Shia Muslim Gen. Soleimani, a saintly warrior-monk who was uncommonly spiritual, morally impeccable, and the most accomplished military genius of this young century.
The strategic stupidity of Trump’s order to murder Soleimani cannot be exaggerated. This shocking, dastardly murder, committed while Soleimani was on an American-encouraged peace mission, has unleashed a “Pearl Harbor effect” that will galvanize not just the nation of Iran, but other forces in the region and around the world. Just as the shock effect of Pearl Harbor helped the American war party overcome domestic political divisions and unite the nation in its resolve for vengeance, so has the Soleimani murder galvanized regional groups, led by Islamic Iran and Iraq, in their dedication to obliterate every last trace of any US-Israeli presence in the region, no matter how long it takes, by any means necessary...
...Trump’s decision to martyr the great Iranian general and the celebrated Iraqi commander was perfectly timed to unite Iraq against the American occupation. Prior to the murder, Iraq was in the midst of color-revolution chaos, as demonstrators protested against not just the US and Israel, the real culprits in the destruction of their country, but also Iran, Iraqi politicians, and other targets. Those demonstrations, and the murders that marred them, were orchestrated by Gladio style covert US forces. As Iraqi Prime Minster Abdul Mahdi explained:
“… I visited China and signed an important agreement with them to undertake the construction instead (of an American company). Upon my return, Trump called me to ask me to reject this agreement. When I refused, he threatened to unleash huge demonstrations against me that would end my premiership.
“Huge demonstrations against me duly materialized and Trump called again to threaten that if I did not comply with his demands, then he would have Marine snipers on tall buildings target protesters and security personnel alike in order to pressure me. I refused again and handed in my resignation. To this day the Americans insist on us rescinding our deal with the Chinese.
“After this, when our Minister of Defense publicly stated that a third party was targeting both protestors and security personnel alike (just as Trump had threatened, he would do), I received a new call from Trump threatening to kill both me and the Minister of Defense if we kept on talking about this ‘third party’.
“I was supposed to meet him [Soleimani] later in the morning when he was killed. He came to deliver a message from Iran in response to the message we had delivered to the Iranians from the Saudis (as part of a peace initiative).”
So Trump lured Soleimani to Tehran with a peace initiative, then ambushed him. That’s why Soleimani was traveling openly on a commercial flight to Baghdad International Airport. He thought he was under US protection.
Abdul Mahdi’s explanation rings true. It reflects the views of most Iraqis, who will be galvanized by Trump’s atrocious actions to resume their insurgency against US occupation.
As Iraqis continue to attack the hated US presence in their country, Trump will undoubtedly blame Iran, whatever its actual role. So this time the Iranians will have no motivation to avoid helping the Iraqi liberation struggle—they would be blamed even if they didn’t. Though Soleimani was a relatively America-friendly stabilizing force after the US invasions of Iraq and Afghanistan—the claim that he was behind IEDs that killed US troops is a ridiculous lie—in the wake of his death Iran will respond positively to Iraqi requests for help in its national liberation struggle against the hated US occupier.
A rekindled anti-US insurgency in Iraq, and various forms of ambiguous/deniable retaliation for the murder of Gen. Soleimani throughout the region and the world, will force Trump up the escalation ladder. Iran, and the larger eject-the-US-from-the-Mideast project, will not back down, though they may occasionally stage tactical retreats for appearance’s sake. The only way Trump could “win” would be by completely destroying Iran. Even if Russia and China allowed that, an unlikely prospect, Trump or any US president who “won” that kind of war would be remembered as the worst war criminal in world history, and the US would lose all its soft power and with it its empire.
Russia now faces the same kind of decision it had to make when the Zionist-dominated US tried to destroy Syria: stand by and let Tehran be annihilated, with Moscow next in line; or use its considerable military power to save its ally. Putin will have no choice but to support Iran, just as he supported Syria. China, too, will need to ensure that the USA loses its Zionist-driven war on Iran. Otherwise Beijing would risk facing the same fate as Tehran.
Even if the only help it gets from Russia and China is covert, Iran is in a strong position to wage asymmetric war against the US presence in the Middle East. Almost two decades ago, the $250 million war game Millennium Challenge 2002 blew up in the neocons’ faces, as Lt. Gen. Paul Van Riper commanded Iranian forces against the US and steered them to victory. Though some technological developments since then may favor the US, as Dr. Alan Sabrosky recently pointed out on my radio show, others favor Iran, which now has missiles of sufficient quality and quantity to rain down hell on US bases, annihilate much of if not all of Israel, and send every US ship anywhere near the Persian Gulf to the bottom of the ocean. (Anti-ship missiles have far outstripped naval defenses, and Iran has concealed immense reserves of them deep in the Zagros Mountains overlooking the Persian Gulf.)
So Trump or whoever follows him will eventually face a choice: Accept defeat and withdraw all American bases and forces in the region; or continue up an escalation ladder that inexorably leads to World War III. The higher up the ladder he goes, the harder it will be to jump off.
The apocalyptic scenario may not be accidental. Mike Pompeo, who is widely believed to have duped Trump into ordering the killing of Gen. Soleimani, may have done so not only on behalf of the extremist Netanyahu faction in Israel, but also in service to an apocalyptic Christian Zionist program that yearns for planetary nuclear destruction. Pompeo is ardently awaiting “the rapture,” the culmination of Christian Zionist history, when a global nuclear war begins at Megiddo Hill in Occupied Palestine and consumes the planet, sending everyone to hell except the Christian Zionists themselves, who are “beamed up” Star Trek fashion by none other than Jesus himself.
Whether it goes down in radioactive flames or in a kinder and gentler way, the US empire, as unstable as its leaders, is nearing the final stages of collapse. “Very stable genius” Trump and Armageddonite Pompeo may have hastened the inevitable when they ordered the fateful killing of Gen. Soleimani.

2017-04-07 Prepare for Impact – This is the Beginning of the End for U.S. Empire by Michael Krieger, libertyblitzkrieg.com
Those whom the gods wish to destroy they first make mad.
Before I get into the meat of this post, I want to revisit something I wrote back in January.
From the post, Very Powerful People in the U.S. Government Want War – This is Their Sales Pitch:
We need to understand that those who want this war will be absolutely relentless. The sales pitch will not end until they get exactly what they want. This is where all of us critical thinkers need to play a key role. We must be prepared to diligently analyze all unsubstantiated official claims, and push back against the war-mongers, because we know for certain the oligarch-owned corporate media won’t. We must be prepared to inform our fellow citizens about what’s happening so that we don’t fall victim to a cheap sales pitch with devastating consequences. Unfortunately, we must also be prepared for a possible deep state false flag if the current sales tactic falls on deaf ears.
America cannot win a global war of such a scale if it is based on false pretenses and in the absence of exceedingly strong public support. This support does not exist. Will this serve as a necessary restraint against the masters of war and their devious plans? It’s too early to tell, but I do know that if we are unnecessarily pushed into a global conflagration, it will not end well for us. If this is the road our twisted status quo insists on taking us down, let us never forget who they are and the self-serving motivations behind their actions.
Four months later, the deep state got exactly what it wanted. Trump’s weaknesses have been identified and exploited, and he’s successfully been manipulated into neocon foreign policy like George W. Bush and Barack Obama before him. I’ve spent much of the past several months warning about exactly what happened last night, but the die is now cast. There’s no turning back from the path we’re on.
And don’t give me this garbage about Trump playing “4D chess.” Trump’s a brilliant salesman, and that’s about it. There’s nothing special or superior about Donald Trump intellectually, and he’s one of the most unwise people to ever become President. There was a hope he meant what he said about non-interventionism during the campaign, but that hope should be entirely extinguished at this point. Trump is a very weak man desperately looking for praise from those he claims to hate.
The purpose of today’s post is not to discuss what happened last night. All of you have read the news by now. My intent today is to explain what I think this means for the years ahead. I believe last night’s strike represents the beginning of the end for U.S. empire. Although the U.S. has been declining domestically for this entire century, America has still been calling all the shots on the international front. This makes sense in late-stage empire, as the focus of the fat and happy “elite” becomes singularly obsessed with domination and power, while the situation back home festers and rots.
Trump won on an “America first” platform that promised to emphasize the well-being of American citizens over geopolitical adventurism. We now know for certain he’s been manipulated into the imperial mindset, and his recklessness will merely accelerate U.S. decline on the world stage, and in turn, back home.
If anyone’s playing 4D chess it’s Russia. Russia is anti-fragile at this point, as has been proved by Putin’s survival in the face of economic sanctions, a collapsing ruble and a plunge in oil prices. Putin is still standing and arguably as powerful as ever. Not to mention the fact that the USSR completely disintegrated and collapsed within the past 30 years. They’ve been through a lot as a people. Meanwhile, the U.S. is extraordinarily fragile and weak by comparison, a distinction that will become quite obvious to us all in the years ahead. I don’t say this with any hint of glee or schadenfreude, I’m just stating the facts as I see them.
None of this implies that Russia’s leadership are a bunch of good people by any means. What I am saying is that they are a thousand times more strategic and intelligent compared to U.S. leadership.
To prove the point, this would be a good time to review a post I published back in 2014, Tensions Between the U.S. and Russia Are Worse Than You Realize – Remarks by Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov. Here’s some of what I noted:
There are two reasons I think the following remarks by Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov are so important.
First, as someone who spends much of his time analyzing and critiquing the many destructive policy decisions made by American “leaders,” I was shocked to find how accurate his description of the U.S. power structure’s mindset seems to be. He gets it, and he is more or less trying to warn the world that America’s leaders are basically power-drunk children. I concur.
Second, Lavrov also describes the negative impact that this behavior has had on the Russian psyche generally. He expresses dismay that the U.S. status quo sees the world as unipolar, and attempts to tackle every problem from the perspective that might is right. In no uncertain terms, Lavrov makes it clear that Russia will not stand for this. I don’t think the Russians are bluffing, so this is a very dangerous situation.
If there was actually someone in the
U.S. State Department capable of such introspective and clear thinking, we might actually defuse this situation. Don’t hold your breath.
You should really read the entire post to see Lavrov’s comments for yourself in order to truly understand why I came to the above conclusions.
U.S. leadership is an absolute joke and will drive this entire country into a brick wall in the years ahead. John McCain, Lindsey Graham, Chucky Schumer and Nancy Pelosi, are you kidding me? They remind me of George Armstrong Custer, and we all know how that turned out.
The media is even worse. In what Glenn Greenwald accurately called “one of the sickest things ever to appear on US television,” MSNBC’s Brian Williams gushed about the “beauty” of U.S. cruise missiles.
[MSNBC Video: Trump Launches Missile Strike on Syrian Airfield;
Here’s another sign of imperial collapse, Trump’s son-in-law, Jared Kushner, in a war zone calling the shots.

(Photo source: twitter site)
This is not the sort of thing you see in a confident, brave, and civilized nation, it’s the sort of stuff you’d expect to see toward the end. It’s the stuff of craven war-mongers, of dishonest cowards, of a totally deranged and very dangerous media. The signs are everywhere; imperial decline is set to accelerate rapidly in the coming years.
Fine, but how is all this going to play out? Obviously nobody really knows, but I do think we’ve entered a new period in American history. I think it’s basically a crossing of the Rubicon moment for the American empire. Personally, I don’t expect a strong and visible military response from Russia in the near-term. I don’t think Putin wants to give the U.S. media and newly minted neocon Donald Trump an excuse to do anything truly crazy, which they can blame on Russia in the court of public opinion. I think Putin is too smart for that. Rather, what I think he’ll do is make all sorts of moves behind the scenes to weaken America’s economic power, while at the same time engaging in minor provocations to tempt the imbeciles in charge of U.S. foreign policy to make further mistakes abroad, to which they’ll emphatically oblige.
In other words, Russia will attempt to make the U.S. extend itself further in a region where no real success is possible, at the same time that the American economy deteriorates further. Recall that the current very weak economic “recovery” has been going on for nearly a decade. This cycle is very long in the tooth, and all Russia really needs to do is sit back, make some moves behind the scenes and allow the U.S. to collapse upon itself in its hubris and stupidity. This is precisely what I think is going to happen.
Finally, let’s not forget the following.
1) Non-stop war.
2) Destruction of U.S. middle class.
3) Banker bailouts
4) Death of civil liberties.
We showed 'em terrorists.
Expect more of all the above as the U.S. empire enters its most devastating phase of collapse. Think about what it might mean for you and your family and prepare accordingly.

Afghan End Game? by Ann Jones and Tom Engelhardt
The euphemisms will come fast and furious. Our soldiers will be greeted
as "heroes" who, as
in Iraq, left with their "heads held high," and if in 2014 or
2015 or even 2019, the last of them, as
also in Iraq, slip away in the dark of night after lying to their
Afghan "allies" about their plans, few here will notice.
This will be the nature of the great Afghan drawdown. The words "retreat,"
"loss," "defeat," "disaster," and their siblings
and cousins won’t be allowed on the premises. But make no mistake, the
country that, only years ago, liked to call itself the globe’s "sole superpower"
or even "hyperpower," whose leaders dreamed of a Pax Americana
across the Greater Middle East, if not the rest of the globe is… not to put
too fine a point on it, packing its bags, throwing in the towel, quietly admitting
– in actions, if not in words – to mission unaccomplished, and heading if not
exactly home, at least boot by boot off the Eurasian landmass.
Washington has, in a word, had enough. Too much, in fact. It’s
lost its appetite for invasions and occupations of Eurasia, though special operations
raids, drone wars, and cyberwars still look deceptively
cheap and easy as a means to control… well, whatever. As a result,
the Afghan drawdown of 2013-2014, that implicit acknowledgement of yet
another lost war, should set the curtain falling on the American Century
as we’ve known it. It should be recognized as a landmark, the moment in
history when the sun truly began to set on a great empire. Here in the
United States, though, one thing is just about guaranteed: not many are going
to be paying the slightest attention.
No one even thinks to ask the question: In the mighty battle lost, who exactly
beat us? Where exactly is the triumphant enemy? Perhaps we should
be relieved that the question is not being raised, because it’s a hard one to
answer. Could it really have been the scattered jihadis of al-Qaeda
and its wannabes? Or the various modestly armed Sunni and Shiite minority
insurgencies in Iraq, or their Pashtun equivalents in Afghanistan with their
suicide bombers and low-tech roadside bombs? Or was it something more
basic, something having to do with a planet no longer amenable to imperial expeditions?
Did the local and global body politic simply and mysteriously spit us out as
the distasteful thing we had become? Or is it even possible, as Pogo once
suggested, that in those distant, unwelcoming lands, we met the enemy
and he was us? Did we in some bizarre fashion fight ourselves and lose?
After all, last year, more American servicemen died
from suicide than on the battlefield in Afghanistan; and a startling number
of Americans were killed in "green on blue" or "insider"
attacks by Afghan "allies" rather than by that fragmented
movement we still call the Taliban.
Whoever or whatever was responsible, our Afghan disaster was remarkably foreseeable.
In fact, anyone who, from 2006 on, read Ann Jones’s Afghan reports at TomDispatch
wouldn’t have had a doubt about the outcome of the war. Her first

While no one was looking, the US lost the war in Afghanistan. The
that joint operations involving US/NATO forces and Afghan military
and police personnel will cease — “temporarily” — went down with a
whimper, not a bang. Since the whole
purpose of our continued presence in that country is supposedly
to train the forces of Afghan “President”
Hamid Karzai, the entire rationale for the war just fell apart, and
isn’t it funny — as in funny-weird, rather than funny-ha-ha — that
Well, not really:
we’re in campaign mode, and neither major party presidential
candidate is much interested in the subject of a war we’ve
been fighting for over a decade, at a cost measured in the trillions
(aside from the incalculable human misery). Mitt Romney is mum, and
the President has more
important matters to consider. Since Romney’s
foreign policy team favors a policy rejected by the overwhelming
majority of the American people, it’s no wonder their
candidate has little to say about it. As for Obama: remember when he
and his platoon of “national security Democrats” were
telling us Afghanistan was the “good war”? Now that its
goodness seems to have dissipated with voters, the administration
would rather not remind Americans how much Obama deepened that
As for the voters
themselves: the same people who told pollsters they supported
the war in the earlier part of the decade are now telling the same
pollsters they want out. The American attention span has been
getting shorter over the past decade, and if only we can get them to
the point of being bored with the next war before it begins, we’ll
be — literally — ahead of the game.
Speaking of losing
while no one was looking: whatever happened to Iraq? Oh yes, now I
remember: it became a satellite of Iran just after the US presence
was officially — albeit not actually — ended. In a
country where nearly 5,000 American soldiers died in a war to export
“democracy,” the elected vice president is on the lam and death squads roam the streets — no, not our death squads
This is yet another
disaster not to be noticed or even mentioned by our political class —
including not only the politicians but also the news media
and the commentariat that make careers out of covering up for and
sucking up to Official Washington. The policy wonks, the Approved
Pundits, the publicists and professional agitators of the left and
the right — when will we hear a peep out of any them about
these dismal and costly failures? After the election? My guess:

Potential for a Mining Boom Splits Factions in Afghanistan. By G.
Bowley Sep 8, 2012 The New York Times
[Excerpted] KALU VALLEY, Afghanistan — If there is a road to
a happy ending in Afghanistan, much of the path may run underground:
in the trillion-dollar reservoir of natural resources — oil,
gold, iron ore, copper, lithium and other minerals — that has
brought hopes of a more self-sufficient country, if only the wealth
can be wrested from blood-soaked soil....
...Further, a proposed mining law vital to attracting foreign investment
is up in the air, with the delay threatening several projects. The
cabinet rejected it this summer, saying it was too generous to Western
commercial interests. But some Western officials fear other motives
are at work, too, including an internal fight for spoils, and perhaps
an effort by some neighboring countries to sway sympathetic officials
to keep Indian and Chinese state mining companies out....
Majia here: Read between the lines. A proposed mining law "vital
to attracting foreign investment" means that it essentially makes
it easy for foreign companies to come in and extract Afghanistan's
Apparently some in Afghanistan aren't too keen on that scenario.
Maybe the Chinese and Indian companies are promising Afghanistan officials
a sweeter deal than western interests? Western officials "fear"
that outcome. The gold and other resources need to be reserved for
The article notes approvingly that "An investment consortium
arranged by JPMorgan Chase is mining gold."
I'm not claiming that foreign direct investment by western companies
is inherently bad. However, ever heard of the "resource curse"?
Poor countries with coveted resources rarely come out ahead when
their spoils are exploited by foreign interests....

The US is in Afghanistan for exactly the same reason the Russians
tried to invade the country in the 80's .
There exists vast oil and gas deposits near the Caspian sea, with
no easy way to transport it. An oil/gas pipeline has been proposed
for many years across Afghanistan to Pakistan, India and the Arabian
After the Russians were ousted from Afghanistan - largely by jihadists
like OBL that were externally funded - then the project was open to
In 1995 the project was initiated as a consortium by the US and Saudis.
The prime contractor was - you guessed it - Halliburton corp!!!! Actual
construction work began in 1997.
In 1998, however the Taliban and OBL decided that their financial
stake in the project had gotten too small, so they threw out the foreign
corporations, and stopped the construction.
Is this starting to sound fishy yet? In October 2001, just a few
weeks after the Sept 11 bombings, the US invaded Afghanistan, threw
out the Taliban, and immediately initiated plans to restart the pipeline
However, due to almost continuous insurgent activity (externally
funded - coincidence? i don't think so - more like paybacks) and strong
negotiations around revenue sharing, construction has met many delays
and just now in 2012 all the agreements are reached.
In the meantime, the Iranians have announced their own pipeline project
which is a shorter distance and can be completed more quickly, and
they quickly signed a deal with Pakistan and India.
The US and Saudi Arabia has put considerable pressure on Pakistan
to abandon the Iranian pipeline project, and support theirs through
Without success in getting Pakistan to reject the Iranian deal, the
US started putting pressure directly on Iran to abandon the project.
And that pressure has led to the threat of war, however the American
public has been adamant that no more wars will be waged, so the CIA
has been deployed to try and create civil unrest and overthrow the
Iranian government, and also has been accused of assassinating Iranian
And you thought: 1. The Afghanistan war was about terrorism? 2. The
Iranian threat of war is about nuclear power?
Wrong. As in most lies, there is some element of truth to both, but
the real reason is the same as always - money and power over money.
When you start understanding this, then the whole "nuclear agenda"
is not so far-fetched. The question is how people can be so ruthless.

is simply no way into Iran by land. We can barely keep American troops
in Afghanistan supplied with many routes being hundreds of miles long,
narrow roads from the Port of Karachi in Pakistan. Recently we found
how easily this supply line could be cut off. Agreements with Iran,
not to mention religious affiliations between Shiites in Iraq, the
majority there and the Shiite based government in Iran, make an approach
through Iraq impossible.
could also consider that our existing forces in Iraq and the entire
Persian Gulf could be cut off by Iran with no resupply by sea possible
for, not only Iraq but Qatar, Bahrain, Kuwait and Iraq. These nations
and the US forces there would be immediately isolated. The only way
in to Iran, restricted because of the topography, is through the province
of Baluchistan, a remote area of Pakistan that borders Iran.
isolated region has become the staging area for attacks against Iran,
supposedly by Jundallah “rebels” but actually orchestrated
by the Mossad and CIA. There are two independence movements wanting
to break Baluchistan from Pakistan. One of the leaders I met in Islamabad
while he was recovering from gunshot wounds. The other lives in Israel,
of the topography of Iran, the only way to approach Tehran is over
more than a thousand miles of valleys. They can only be approached
through Pakistan and there is only one port that serves that region.
The only way to resupply other than through this small Chinese built
port, Gwadar, is to truck into Kandahar, hundreds of miles, then back
down into Pakistan, following the 500,000 man army into Iran in something
closely akin to Napoleon’s ill fated invasion of Russia, but
even worse if that is possible.
military analogies are inescapable, Dien Bien Phu and Stalingrad are
two that come to mind. Though the government of Pakistan lacks strong
civilian leadership and is largely dependent on US aid, the use of
Pakistan’s territory for another aggressive war in the Middle
East that will perceived by almost all the world’s population,
not just Muslims, as a sign of Israel’s control of the United
States and its ability to get America to commit any crime, will not
be acceptable to the people of Pakistan. It is also highly unlikely

whistleblower emerges from the US military as retired Lt. Colonel
Daniel Davis accused US military leaders of painting a distorted picture
TV has interviewed Wayne Madsen, investigative journalist in Washington
about the accusations of lies fed to the American public. He discusses
startling revelations about the drug lords in Afghanistan and their
relationship to President Karzai and the US Special Forces and US
marines. What follows is an approximate transcript of the interview.
TV: why is it that whenever a military official resigns or
suddenly comes out of the US armed forces a secret is revealed about
what happens behind the scenes. The questions is will we be expecting
more of these unraveling stories?
Well, it’s hard to say. What happens is when somebody in the
military or intelligence community comes forward with allegations
of corruption, malfeasance or incompetence they’re usually rewarded
with a huge amount of pressure. In some cases investigations open
up for revealing classified information.
there is a certain chill factor that sets in with these individuals,
but Colonel Davis certainly isn’t the first one to acknowledge
and report on the fact that the Afghanistan campaign was flawed from
large part of the responsibility for what happened in Afghanistan,
the failure of US policy lies at the feet of General David Petraeus
as he said. But unfortunately, Colonel Davis will now find it a very
tough road to go down while General Petraeus on the other hand was
rewarded for his incompetence by being made the director of the Central
Intelligence Agency, CIA.
TV: It’s interesting that there are reports from US
marines in Afghanistan that are protecting poppy fields and are somehow
contributing to the drug trade. What do you know about this and in
general the relationship between US forces and the drug trade in Afghanistan?
Well, this has been reported before that US Special Forces
and marines have been involved in protecting the poppy fields that
are controlled by various Afghan war lords who depending on what day
of the week it is support the US. Some of these war lords of course
are connected through family links to President Hamid Karzai.
goes to show that the US has never learned its lesson from past military
adventures, for example, in South East Asia during the Indo-China
war the US and the CIA was very instrumental in smuggling opium and
heroin out of the Golden Triangle some of which found its way into
Saigon and was unfortunately used by many US troops there that got
hooked on heroin.
same thing is taking place now with Afghanistan. Anytime you’ve
got drugs involved with the CIA you’ve got basically slush fund
accounts where the CIA has access to massive amounts of money, there’s
no accountability, no oversight by Congress.
is an old old story that goes back when the CIA was first formed in
1947 and unfortunately the CIA is still very much the same way today
with the drug smuggling operations.
TV: With all this being said, what future do you seen with
the US presence in Afghanistan? How will it end do you think?
I think we know from history that Afghanistan has been the graveyard
of the empires: Alexander the Great; certainly the British were defeated
there; the Russians were defeated there; and it’s not going
to have a very good outcome for the US.
in the short term, with all this war talk about a war with Iran, you
can be assured that the US military presence in Afghanistan will remain
in the short term because this is part of a strategy to encircle Iran.
in the short term US troops will continue to die in Afghanistan and

recently did the US State Department designate the Tehrik-i-Taliban
Pakistan (TTP), also known as the Pakistani Taliban, a terrorist group.
The group is said by the State Department to be an off-shoot of the
Afghan Taliban, which had links to "Al Qaeda" before the
9/11 attacks on the United States. TTP's leader is Hakimullah Mehsud,
said to be 30-years old and operating from Pakistan's remote tribal
region with an accomplice named Wali Ur Rehman. In essence, this new
team of Mehsud and Rehman appears to be the designated replacement
for Osama Bin Laden and Ayman Zawahiri as the new leaders of the so-called
"Global Jihad" against the West.
it is Xe cells operating in Karachi, Peshawar, Islamabad and other
cities and towns that have, according to our source who witnessed
the U.S.-led false flag terrorist operations in Pakistan. Bombings
of civilians is the favored false flag event for the Xe team and are
being carried out under the orders of the CIA.

war between the Sunnis and the Americans ended. To keep the Americans
out of the ongoing large scale sectarian violence that continues to
slaughter Iraqis, the US military was confined to remote bases. If
history is a guide, the Afghans will also accept Petraeus’ protection

more expensive super carriers in the face of the following growing

torpedoes, reaching speeds of over 200 miles an hour.
3. Very quiet submarines, diesel-electrics in the case of poor countries.
ballistic missiles, such as the one attributed to the Chinese.
comments: "Any military buff knows that the Navy cannot defend
itself against these. It says it can. It has to say it can. In fleet
exercises against submarines, the subs always win – easily."
can argue that U.S. carriers were vastly more effective than they
should have been even in the WWII Pacific theater because the Japanese
seriously neglected their own sub force, partly due to a cultural
quirk when the Japanese sub force "lost face" due to some
screw-ups during the Pearl Harbor attack.

particular services, we need our Pentagon `priests' to turn to the
laity — us — and seek our input and sanction. Instead

to this advance warning, Marines supposedly had to thread their way

in the Times of London called "Secret document exposes
Iran’s nuclear trigger" detailed how "confidential
intelligence documents obtained by The Times show that Iran
is working on testing a key final component of a nuclear bomb."
The article was attacked by Gareth Porter and myself based on informed
sources suggesting that the document the article relied on was a forgery.:

2003-08-29 "God will destroy America, says Hamid Gul (Retired Pakistan General)" Daily Times, Pakistan, August 30, 2003, by Khalid Hasan
WASHINGTON: “God will destroy the US in Iraq and Afghanistan and wherever it will try to go from there,” General Hamid Gul, identified as “strategic adviser” to the MMA, was quoted saying on Friday.
Gen Gul, known for his colourful language and what many consider “imaginative theories,” went on to declare, “The Muslim world must stand united to confront the US in its so-called war against terror which is in reality a war against Muslims. Let’s destroy America wherever its troops are trapped.” If President Pervez Musharraf concedes President George Bush’s demand to send 15,000 Pakistani peacekeeping soldiers to Iraq, it would amount to “political suicide,” according to The Washington Times.
The report alleges that jihadi organisations are once again actively recruiting in the name of ending US aggression in the two countries where US forces are battling Iraqi and Afghan terrorists. Gen Musharraf is conceding ground to the extremists now crowding the Pakistani government. Anyone who tries to crack down on extremist activities is told to stop, says the report by Arnaud de Borchgrave. According to him, “The latest example came in Balochistan where the governor, Gen Qadir Baluch, a former corps commander in Balochistan, attempted to curtail anti-US demonstrations called by the MMA. The president asked Gen Baloch to back off while Inter Services Intelligence (ISI) negotiated with the MMA. Gen Baloch flew to Islamabad to confer with Gen Musharraf. The president urged him to follow the new rules or resign, which he did.”
The Washington Times claims that the new governor, Awais Ghani, a former federal minister of labour and religious affairs, has proven to be “a pliant instrument that heeds the advice of ISI and lets the MMA (now derisively known as Musharraf-Mullahs-Army) consolidate its hold on Balochistan’s regional government. Pakistani moderates are shocked by Gen Musharraf’s appeasement of the religious extremists who are now in charge of the province under the guidance of Gen Gul and his former ISI colleagues.” Borchgrave writes that Quetta, the provincial capital, is now a “vast privileged sanctuary for former Taliban officials and their fighters.
[Ed. 2019 Note: Hamid Gul (1936-2015), former head of Pakistan's Inter-Service Intelligence (ISI) --Pakistan's version of America's CIA-- gained a reputation as an "ultimate spymaster" or "godfather" for the Taliban and Mujahideen during the Soviet-Afghan War (1979-1989). I also heard him give a very insightful interview on the Alex Jones Show around 2010. As I recollect, he tried to sound conciliatory and said words to the effect that he did not hate Americans per se, but disliked the neocons who have hijacked American foreign policy, and furthermore noted that good tactics will not necessarily salvage a bad strategy, and he believed America was pursuing a bad grand strategy. Paradoxically, Gen. William E. Odom (1932-2008), former director of America's National Security Agency (NSA), made a statement that had similarities to Gul's strategic assessment although Gen. Odom probably evolved his views from his own sources completely independent of Gul. He concluded his testimony before the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, 18 January 2007, by stating that America's invasion and occupation of Iraq had created a longterm "war that is turning out to be the greatest strategic disaster in our history."
As an additional note, in his book False Flags (2013) Michael Collins Piper noted on page 212:
Gul acknowledged his own hostility to former President George H. W. Bush, pointing out that when Bush became president he issued an order to "clip the wings" of Pakistani intelligence (of which Gul was then director general) which had been coordinating the entire anti-Soviet effort in Afghanistan. Gul also said that he was blocked for promotion because of pressure by the U.S. Until then, he says, "We were all pro-American. But then America left us in the lurch and everything went to pieces, including Afghanistan."
According to Gul [in an interview with Arnaud de Borchgrave about 9-11], it was U.S. policy, after the collapse of the Soviet occupation of Afghanistan, that led to the rise of the Taliban which was then being targeted for destruction by the "Dubya" Bush administration:
The U.S. pushed for a broad-based Afghan government of seven factions and then waved goodbye. Even in the best of democracies, a broad-based coalition does not work. So we quickly had seven jokers in Kabul interested only in one thing, jockeying for power. The gunplay quickly followed, which led to the creation of Taliban, the students of the original Mujahideen, who decided to put an end to it.
John de Nugent (described in Chapter
34) stated to this author that he believes that "V
for Vendetta" and "The
Matrix" have elements of false flag -related "controlled
opposition," predictive programming, limited hangout, and "twist-speak"
embedded within them. They take themes that reflect important aspects
of reality that most white Americans probably feel on a subconscious
level and then twist them so that Americans will channel their rebellious
sentiments in ways that are not too threatening towards the pro-Zionist,
multi-racial, multi-cultural, New World Order, globalist agenda.
The Matrix (according to Wikipedia) "depicts a future in which reality as
perceived by most humans is actually a simulated reality created by
sentient machines to pacify and subdue the human population, while
their bodies' heat and electrical activity are used as an energy source..."
Sounds like Jewish-controlled national media to John de Nugent, except
rather whites recapturing their identity and self-determination from
Jewish hegemony through resurgent white nationalism (the normal social
and political process), the movie portrays whites finding leadership
played by a black
actor, and liberation in a computer program called "Zion,"
when in fact in the real world it is "Zionists" who are
most responsible for mentally enslaving whites in the first place
through Jewish-controlled Hollywood.
for Vendetta "Britain is ruled by Norsefire, a totalitarian
government. Evey Hammond, a young woman who works at a TV station,
is rescued from an attempted rape by members of the secret police
by a Guy Fawkes-masked vigilante known as `V'. He leads her to a rooftop
to watch his destruction of the Old Bailey. Norsefire publicly explains
the incident as a planned demolition, but V shows up the lie by taking
over a state-run television station the next day. He broadcasts a
message urging the people of Britain to rise against the oppressive
government on 5 November, (in exactly one year's time) by meeting
him outside the Houses of Parliament. Evey then helps V to escape
the TV station, but is accidentally knocked out in the process..."
are some twists here. For starters, as I explain in my "Iceland
Gets `ENRONed'" series, the Nordic peoples are historically
more closely associated with libertarianism rather than totalitarianism,
therefore the linkage of "Norse" in "Norsefire"
to totalitarianism is misleading. Also, the fact that the main protagonist
turns out to be a homosexual in the end is designed to turn off straight
white male conservatives. The movie also creates the impression that
various forms of protest gimmickry can effectively challenge the deep
financial, media, economic, intelligence operations (Mossad-CIA) and
sociological (Zionist) power of the New World Order, when in fact
historically it takes -- at a minimum -- a combination of deep ideological
commitment, broad-based ethnic rootedness (see my answer to question
ethnic solidarity matter in the defense of liberty?"
of my "Have You Been Brainwashed?" Quiz), and substantial
logistical support (please note how American Revolutionaries had to
go to France for support) in order to run an effective resistance
important characteristic of the creation of "controlled opposition"
is that it provides just enough truth to pique people's interest and
sustain interest, but not so much truth that people connect all the
dots and become effective opposition.
"controlled opposition" movements achieve a certain size
and scope, their handlers will often try to have members within the
movement create an uproar that not only causes the movement to self-destruct,
but also damages or destroys the reputations of as many genuine and
effective activists as possible. These movies provide a variation
on this theme by inserting "twist" elements that confuse
effective resistance towards the "New World Order" gang
profiled in Chapter
5, and the Orwellian, Zionist-dominated, neo-Jacobin,
Multi-Racial, Multi-Cultural, Welfare-Warfare Global Superstate that
Wages Perpetual War for Perpetual Peace described in Chapter
