Ahead of U.S.
Good article by Scahill. Just corroborates further proof that no matter who is POTUS they are all stooges for the MIC.
Perhaps future history “books” will record 1963-2017 as the Great Transition.
The unelected National Security State (NSS) was formally unleashed when Harry Truman signed Executive Order NSD (National Security Directive) #1 in 1947. The NSS began in the Red Scares of 1919 and grew by leaps and bounds in WW2, especially because of the ongoing red-baiting and the dawn of the Nuclear Era (massacring Japanese civillians to scare the Soviet Union and non-aligned states and socialist and independent national liberation movements that WW2 unleashed around the globe).
Scahill, an excellent journalist, serves no-one when he attributes these historical trends to the Tweeting Twit Idiot of Orange who is an infected pimple on the dying corpse of neoliberal global imperialism.
“The Obama Administration…by Institutionalizing a Policy of…Killings of Individuals Judged to Pose a Threat to National Security - Without Indictment or Trial, through SECRET PROCESSES, bequeathed to our Political Culture,a Policy of Assassination.”
THAT “bequeathal” came curtesy of deposed (by JFK) CIA Founder Allen Dulles, who presumed to Overturn Our National Election, relieving us of Our Duly Elected President on November 22, 1963, as extensively Detailed and Footnoted by James W. Douglass’s “JFK and the Unspeakable - Why He Died and Why it Matters.”
Scahill is awesome. I wish he had more coverage in the mainstream media. He’s like a young noam chomsky
The American junta has to be stopped.
The Duopoly continues to take a decades long “dump”, on America.
How many more Wars before the voting electorate wakes the fuck up.
Just saw the predictable dictation on more war by the commandante.
Guess the Deep State got its way, after all. Bannon, creep that he is, was against this, and that is why he is out.
Who wrote the “speech”? McMaster? Kelly? Mattis? or all of them together.
Dissent still is, by far and by any measure, the greatest form of patriotism. The Trumpster lovers now understand another John Prine song, " there’s a hole in Uncle Sam Stone’s arm, where all the money goes, Jesus Christ died for the MSM & MIC, I suppose. Little dictator’s have small ears and really hate lefties, peaceniks and queers, even after all these 16 years "… Hit it boys and girls, ah one, two, three, four…
Sadly, old fellow, you may be right.
*I had hoped to finish my life without ever seeing another one of those damned things, but I am not too far from what is probably the biggest target in the US, the Bangor submarine base and nuclear weapons storage in Hood’s Canal, WA.
*Ah well, at least it should be pretty quick.
As John also observed ::
“Some humans ain’t Human.”
Geezer, I pray you are wrong about that. And I’m the cynical one.
Hopefully, old fellow, you will live out your days in relative peace.
At least, that’s what I’m praying for.
For you, and all living things.
Here I think it’s wise to quote CSNY, " time to separate the wheat from the chaff ". Almost Cut My Hair
Trump folks thought they were getting a non-intervention foreign policy. As dumb as they are, the masses just got hoodwinked, bamboozled and fuxked, again. So predictable. Just like the magical thinkers and dumbfuxks here at CD that thought he wasn’t going to make a lot of $$$ while the sun shines. Just more blatantly than the Clintonistas. It’s why I voted for Stein, in part.
Bernie was the only one who was calling for DoD cuts. Also, this is about poppies. And, not of the Mary Poppins or the Vet’s kind. Just guessin’.
Trump is nuts! As in a lunatic. So are the fuxkin’ generals! Get out now! But, we’re in deeper.
Most people want things the PTB would rather cut their right arms off, than give into, to allowing. Duh!
It’s the fuxking economic policies which Sen. Sander’s is advocating, that they absolutely don’t want. Duh! They’re not waving flags, they’re selling them. And, the condiments, too.
Centrist Dims don’t want it either, since it cuts their Empire-building ( hello ) budget. And, that’s a freebie for their stock investments. Built in annualized returns. Same as it ever was… Capitalist investment isn’t stupid. It’s gov’t guaranteed.
" This is about poppies."
The Taliban no doubt are brutal thugs, but the problem is: THEY ARE NOT OUR THUGS! And according to many sources, the Taliban was eradicating the heroin, poppy, industry from Afghanistan.
