The list of nations destabilized by the CIA (with deleterious effects of lasting impact) is long.
Still, the maniacs argue that they are The Authorities and deserve to be trusted!
"The intelligence community, which backed opposition forces in Aleppo, believes ISIS cannot be defeated as long as Assad is in power. The terror group, they say, thrives in unstable territories. And only local forces — like the ones backed by the CIA — can mitigate that threat."
“The status of the opposition is resilient in the face of horrendous attacks by the Syrian and Russian forces,” a U.S. intelligence official explained to The Daily Beast. “The defeat of Assad is a necessary precondition to ultimately defeat [ISIS]. As long as there is a failed leader in Damascus and a failed state in Syria, [ISIS] will have a place to operate from. You can’t deal with ISIS if you have a failed state,” the U.S. official observed."
Just as these covert military agencies go about destroying nations as if it were a badge of honor and proof of their competence, and then hold up these "bona fides" as reason to allow them yet more leverage (to unleash yet more destruction); similar arguments hold true for the expansion of trade deals.
No matter that they've already caused wealth to aggregate to the few at the very top while spreading misery, uncertainty, joblessness, and the right wing fear reaction that accompanies all of these ... The Architects argue for yet MORE treaties of like nature.
Welcome to the insane asylum where the M.A.D.(dest) figures run the place!
