Warfare and the Failure of US Military Leadership
by Damon Vrabel
The "War on
Terror" has become the most successful military diversion in history,
having lasted twice as long as WWII so far. While the US and other
countries are under severe attack by financial powers through the
corporate system and the currency and bond markets, the US military
is convinced that people living in remote deserts are the threat.
So they’re busy killing some of the poorest people in the world
while the country is being attacked by the richest. On the one hand,
this is a more impressive Machiavellian chess move than the Calais
diversion in WWII that opened up the Normandy attack that would
seal Germany’s fate. On the other, it’s just embarrassing to see
how easily millions of grown adults can be fooled in the face of
foreign debt which led to WWII and its eventual death: $31.4
billion ($400 billion in 2010 dollars).
debt which could lead to WWIII and its eventual death: $4
necessary in WWII to destroy Germany’s productive core, a military
component to WWIII though possible is not necessary since the
US’ productive core has already been destroyed.
States has a foreign debt obligation exponentially larger than Germany’s,
which was universally recognized as extreme and unpayable. So
what adjectives should be used to describe the US’ debt? Everyone
also recognizes that Germany’s debt led to its dictatorship, which
in turn led to WWII and its eventual foreclosure by foreign powers
to collect for the creditors and force it under a new central banking
establishment. So what future is the US moving toward?
As John Adams
warned long ago, debt is a great way to enslave countries.
was under attack but unclear of the real enemy, the German population
was stirred into a paranoid fear of itself, its Jewish members in
particular. The same thing is happening in the US as the left vs.
right civil war has never been so extreme. And the corporate class,
who in 08/09 received the biggest welfare program in history, is
now blaming unions and the lower class for the pennies in welfare
they receive. The media is also stoking the Christian vs. Muslim
fight to keep the masses distracted. And now there are glimpses
of a movement to stir opinion against the Jews – the scapegoat the
multi-national banking elite has always hidden behind.
is very simple. Thomas Jefferson explained it over 200 years ago.
The problem is not Muslims, Jews, unions, the left, or the right.
That’s all a distraction. The problem is the aristocracy controlling
and restructuring the masses through banks, corporations, and other
financial institutions. Jefferson said they’re more dangerous than
standing armies. To bring his accurate metaphor up to date, big
armies like JPM Chase, Goldman Sachs, and the IMF fight the main
battle, hedge funds like Soros stand ready to run bombing raids,
and the Banks of China and Japan control the WMDs. The US is getting
a taste of the neoliberalism it has forced on other countries for
decades, and if it steps out of line, a financial version of payback
for Hiroshima may be on the horizon.
to my old military colleagues: the US has been blatantly attacked
by the most powerful weapon in history – leveraged finance – and
rather than defending the country, you’re exacerbating it by killing
poor people in deserts for the military-industrial-CIA complex to
bring them under the rule of the global banking system and secure
their resources. Despite the propaganda, there is no honor in being
an assassin for corporate empire. Prove Kissinger wrong, the guy
who according to Bob Woodward called you "stupid animals"
to be used as pawns. This is what civilian strategists think of
you, so stop being suckered by them into killing the weak on
the orders of the strong.
You must think
critically and wake up to the real threat facing the US. The old
"we just do what we’re told" mentality doesn’t fly anymore
as you carry out unconstitutional, immoral orders based on fake
intelligence. All your civilian leaders are compromised and co-opted
by their membership in the CFR – the rich kid Wall Street club fueling
the globalized empire. So are the top generals and a few dweeb colonels
from places like Princeton’s Woodrow Wilson School who get a rush
out of planning empire. They violate their oaths daily simply by
being members of this group. So you in turn violate your oaths by
carrying out their orders.
in the efforts that are bringing this country, and much of the world,
to its knees. Being a mercenary for corporate powers is not honorable
– it’s disgraceful. Stand down. Then focus on the real threat and
help the people restore the country while saving the rest of the
world from the raging last gasps of a dying empire.
