It is incredible just how out of touch our "politicians" are when it comes to dealing with the Middle East (or any other foreign country!). It is as if you have to pass a test that shows that you have bought the entire, simplistic political/corporate narrative before you can be trusted to work with a bunch of ignorant, racist apparatchiks. But as an article recently published on CD pointed out, Americans (the 99%) have absolutely no say in foreign policy. Those same ignorant and smug apparatchiks believe that the general public is too stupid to understand the complexity of endless war. Meanwhile, these rushed attempts to garner public support for more war via staged propaganda stunts, really are irrelevant because the public has never had any input into U.S. foreign policy decisions anyway. This exclusive club of corporate apparatchiks that dominate D.C., have done more damage to America's reputation abroad than any other group in history and more importantly, they paint the 99% as a group that actually supports these ridiculous policies.
In 2015, according to Special Operations Command spokesman Ken McGraw, U.S. Special Operations forces deployed to a record-shattering 147 countries -- 75% of the nations on the planet, which represents a jump of 145% since the waning days of the Bush administration. On any day of the year, in fact, America’s most elite troops can be found in 70 to 90 nations.
Steely eyes, down-turned thin lips, shaved head...all that is missing is the
that appeared on SS uniforms (Third Reich). What I see in this man's expression is the same mentality of those who willingly participate in murderous covert operations throughout history...all struck from the same mold. Maybe his family sees something different in him.... I can only imagine what people in the Middle East think when they see the likes of this "stormtrooper" in their midst....
A true sociopath.
"I don’t like to traffic in conspiracy theories, but ... "
... but if you haven't noticed the the government, and the corporations that control them constantly conspire, then it not only means that you are like a mushroom (kept in the dark and fed by our corporate media), but you may also be lacking in independent thought.
Yeah, the perfect poster boy for the Fourth Reich!
► The war desk turned the story of this man's alleged heroic sacrifice into a colorful trial balloon for the next surge.
Who writes this shît anyway?
► If our news companies presented objective analyses of foreign policy instead of parroting the free news Washington gives them the public might offer more input
