A Wide World of Winless War

Nick Turse

The tabs on their shoulders read “Special Forces,” “Ranger,” “Airborne.” And soon their guidon -- the “colors” of Company B, 3rd Battalion of the U.S. Army’s 7th Special Forces Group -- would be adorned with the “Bandera de Guerra,” a Colombian combat decoration.

Another good informational article by Nick Turse. It's, "America Against the World"......

More succinctly its Wall Street against the 99% more so than "America against the world". Occupy Wall Street (OWS) got it right. That is why Obama and company shut them down so quickly..

Winless wars sustain eternally growing revenue for the military industrial media infotainment complex (MIMIC).

"Washington" will NEVER "raise fundamental questions about the lack of meaningful strategic results" because MIMIC owns all three branches of the gubmit in Washington.

Hmmm...instead of one or two giant wars now it's dozens of unreported-upon micro-wars. How sly of the MIC.

Fascism is endless war, quote from Mussolini:

(21) I believe that if a people wish to live, they should develop a will to power, otherwise they vegetate, live miserably and become prey to a stronger people, in whom this will to power is developed to a higher degree. (Speech to the Senate, May 28, 1926).

Learned recently, about US Coast Guard personnel on a mission to Nepal ... it mostly about stealing as much $$$ as possible ... and in general, perpetual war and world domination.


#7

It's also about a body shortage for the permanent war machine. "Anybody/anyplace/anytime" should be the tagline for those .com military commercials that permeate the web and televised sporting events.

Seymour Hersh on the Syrian gas attack.

Bingo. Much of this kind of hand-wringing prose (like that below) seems naively to ignore the essential point: we are a thoroughly militarized corporate state:

"...there is remarkably little evidence that even enduring efforts by Special Operations forces result in strategic victories or improved national security outcomes. And yet, despite such boots-on-the-ground realities, America’s special ops forces and their missions only grow."
