The continuing foreign policy failures of the Permanent Regime goes back well over a century. Notwithstanding, the missed opportunities following the collapse of the Soviet Union has emboldened the War Party of the American Hollow Empire to become the main existential threat not only to our own country, but to much of the rest of the world. The militarists who chant “thank you for your service” are actually committed to expanding the number of Wounded Warrior dupes, who are expendable. The United States never learned the lessons of the Vietnam War. Volunteering to fight in unnecessary foreign adventures has caused more gratuitous suffering than any improvised explosive device (IED) that blows off limbs.
Another “IED” is equivalent to Intelligent Essential Defense. Each successive generation loses a greater degree of insight from the last when it comes to understanding the real reasons why the military/surveillance complex follows orders from the foreign policy betrayers. These foreign policy “experts” hate the essence of America, as they bolster a global empire that most of the world despises.
Greg Hunter features an analysis called “The $21 Trillion Missing – U.S. Government a Criminal Enterprise,” stating: “The new report was put together by Dr. Mark Skidmore at Michigan State University, and it is a detailed year-by-year study of DOD and HUD budgets between 1998 and 2015. The missing money is called ‘undocumentable adjustments,’ but that may just be a polite name for theft, fraud and crime against ‘We the People.’ Former Assistant Secretary of Housing Catherine Austin Fitts contends, ‘Here’s the critical issue because technology is leading us through tremendous change, and the people who get their hands on this technology and are able to subsidize the cost of capital are the ones that are going to win. They have done that by basically hijacking the federal credit and using it to help centralize power under them. So, we have to reverse that, and the Constitution is the tool to hold them accountable. All their arguments just fall down when you realize they have just stolen an enormous amount of money from the federal government outside the law. . . . The U.S. Federal government doesn’t have information sovereignty, and it doesn’t have financial sovereignty. So, we have to return it to that, and we have to keep that mechanism open long enough to get this money back.’”
Seldom does the significance of this systematic theft register with an apathetic public. If a citizen outcry cannot be generated to stop the unending carnage inflicted by the Pentagon overseas, why would anyone think a national outrage would ignite over an amount of money that is virtually incomprehensible?
Year after year and decade after decade, the legions U.S. troops stationed around the world just keeps the phony Pax Americana empire going. Those of us who were hopeful that Donald Trump’s foreign policy would actually reverse this permanent burden are gravely disappointed.
Ilana Mercer makes her usual insightful observations in her article “How Trump Normalized Neo-Conservatism”: “It’s quite acceptable, on the left and the pseudo-right, to casually quip about troops in Niger and Norway. ‘We have soldiers in Niger and Norway? Of course we do. We need them.’ With neo-conservatism normalized, there is no debate, disagreement or daylight between our dangerously united political factions. This is the gift President Trump has given mainstream neo-conservatives — who now comfortably include neo-liberals and all of Conservatism Inc., with the exceptions of Pat Buchanan, Ann Coulter and Tucker Carlson.”
For a more scornful assessment, the incomparable non-interventionist Mike Scheuer’s letter to President Trump warns of impending disaster on the African Continent: “It is best that you get the easily solved problems of Ukraine, Iran, Afghanistan, and Pakistan out of the way. Thereafter, sir, prepare yourself to resist the intense pressure from neo-cons, globalists, Israel-Firsters, Congress, the generals, and much of the media that will be loosed on you when the Islamists’ African campaign gathers pace and the usual warmongering subjects in the United States slither out from under their rocks begin to clamor for a war to ‘liberate Africa.’
