Two recent articles have again demonstrated that the greatest “terrorist” entity on earth is not the bogymen – Russia, China, Iran, North Korea – so often portrayed by Western presstitutes and the American government, but the United States itself. Ever since World War II, the U.S. has been the most militaristic country, far surpassing all of the Communist and dictatorial regimes combined.
Some startling and rarely reported facts:
• Currently, the U.S. drops on someone or something a deadly explosive once every12 minutes.
• W. Bush’s military dropped 70,000 bombs on five different nations during his murderous regime.
• Nobel Peace Prize recipient, Barrack Obomber, launched 100,000 bombs on seven countries.
• Funding this mass murder is a reported $21 trillion (!) that is unaccounted for in the Pentagon’s coffers.
Despite all of the “America First” bluster at the start of the Trump Administration, little has changed, rather, things have escalated. While G.W. Bush in his wicked eight years dropped over 24 bombs per day and his successor upped that total to 34 bombs per day, the current Bomber-in-Chief has, in his first year in office, averaged 121 bombs per day! For the initial year of his Presidency, 44,000 bombs were dropped on people and lands despite the fact that the U.S. is not officially at war with a single country!
Despite these grisly statistics, which are hardly ever reported by the “mainstream” press, the military-industrial complex and the controlled Western media outlets have propagated the lie of “precision bombing.” Precision bombing has been trumpeted to minimize the effect of U.S. aggression to the public with the claim that only true belligerents are targeted and not innocents.
When U.S. bombing is reported by the press, the actual casualties and property damage are never accurately given. The most notorious example of this mendacity was the coverage of Bush II’s Iraq war. “The U.S. and its allies ruthlessly carpet-bombed Iraq,” a UN report acknowledged, “reducing it from ‘a rather highly urbanized and mechanized society’ to a ‘pre-industrial age nation.’”
Later accounts of what actually happened showed that “only seven percent of the 88,500 tons of bombs and missiles devastating Iraq were ‘precision weapons.’”
Yet, it is hypocritical U.S. policy makers that call certain regimes “rogue” and/or “terrorist” while Washington’s own “defense” budget is set at $700 billion, and is set to increase next year by $16 billion. Yes, more taxes extorted from the public for the pulverization of peoples and their homes across the globe!
Even if these statistics were of common knowledge, do not look for things to change. The majority of the American public loves its military and government and has been conditioned to overlook and accept nearly all of its military engagements and the propaganda that attempts to justify them.
What must change is ideology which, at one time, was strongly anti-interventionist, but gradually became pro-war. Through education, the press, books, and the electronic media, the intelligentsia was able to manipulate public opinion. Americans began to glorify war under the guise of spreading “democracy” and “freedom” to everyone, whether they wanted it or not.
Under current ideological conditions, a reversal of thinking to a non-interventionist foreign policy is not likely. The only way the nation’s rampaging foreign policy will be checked is through an economic collapse or a severe dollar crisis, the latter of which would end the greenback’s status as the world’s reserve currency.
If Washington no longer has the means to fund its military around the world, its imperialism will quickly come to an end. It is extremely burdensome on a domestic economy to maintain a global empire and one that is actively engaged in costly military operations. If the nation’s economy severely contracts or the dollar can no longer be printed with impunity, the bombing of other peoples and political involvement in overseas affairs would have to cease, or be drastically curtailed. A historical example of this is Great Britain after WWII.
