Russia Masses At Ukrainian Border, As “Sabre Rattling” Putin Prepares for War
This is what propaganda looks like. The US, EU and NATO overthrow the elected government of Ukraine in 2014 (after failed tries in the early 00′), arm right-wing Nazi-types, take over national gas companies in the country, plan to place anti-nuclear missiles 90 miles from Moscow, mass troops at the Polish border with Russia, call Putin “Hitler” and choke off the country economically.
And the US media discusses none of this. It simply fear mongers that Russia is out to take over the world and banks on Americans lack of grip on reality and their irrational fear of Russia to pull this all off.
P.S, this is Hillary Clinton’s game plan, not Trump’s. She is the one who has no problem putting Americans in danger for forgein interests and pointless global aggression.
Watching Trump speak all I kept thinking is his lack of a foreign policy is still less George W Bush-like than Hillary Clinton. The Democrat. Who “sensible” people will vote for. Literally wants to repeat the Iraq War in Syria. Still. Even after ISIS. Still wants to overthrow the secular government. Still wants to surround Russia and place more missiles in Eastern Europe.
Stay Home America 2016
After NATO “liberated” the country by becoming the air force for the same extremists American fought in the Iraq War, the country of Libya has been a training ground for these types of guys. But remember what Hillary Clinton said:
The two gunmen who killed 21 people at a museum in Tunis trained in neighboring Libya before carrying out the deadly attack and were known to authorities, Tunisian security officials said Friday.
The attack at the National Bardo Museum Wednesday has raised concerns about the spread of extremism in North Africa and particularly in Tunisia — the only country to emerge from the 2011 Arab Spring uprisings with a functioning democracy.
A little satire from Glenn Greenwald:
“It’s easy to strike a pose of cynicism when contemplating Hillary Clinton’s inevitable (and terribly imminent) presidential campaign. As a drearily soulless, principle-free, power-hungry veteran of DC’s game of thrones, she’s about as banal of an American politician as it gets. One of the few unique aspects to her, perhaps the only one, is how the genuinely inspiring gender milestone of her election will (following the Obama model) be exploited to obscure her primary role as guardian of the status quo.”
Via Glenn Greenwald at The Intercept:
Just three years after NATO’s military intervention in Libya ended and was widely heralded by its proponents as a resounding success, that country is in complete collapse.
Great two party system we got here. If you want a foreign policy of Bush, McCain (and Obama)….vote for Hilary Clinton.
“Mark Salter, a former chief of staff to Senator McCain and a neocon fellow traveler, said that in the event of a (Rand) Paul nomination, “Republican voters seriously concerned with national security would have no responsible recourse” but to support Mrs. Clinton for the presidency.”
“National Security” means intervention around the globe. Toppling governments we don’t like, installing one of our own. Forcing Washington’s influence on countries for economic power and control. I mean, it’s not like we can trade with people right?
The reactionary crises around the globe at the moment are instances of blowback from the last two decades of intervention on the behalf of powerful lobbies. Our “freedom” has nothing to do with it. I sure felt like my freedom to bbq on the 4th of July was heightened because we invaded Panama back in the 80’s to secure the PANAMA canal. Don’t get me started on how free the overthrow of the elected government in Ukraine made me feel.
Democrats and Liberals. Wake up. Don’t vote for Hillary Clinton for some reaction to Republican politics or because she is on the blue team. She loves war. As much as the “baby killer” G.W. did.
