U.S. Empire of Chaos Loses its Footing and Attempts to Topple Democratically Elected Philippine President Rodrigo Roa Duterte: Part One

Ferdinand Magellan Trip Around The World

On the 16th of March 1521, Spaniard explorer Ferdinand Magellan, sailing from Spain, reached the archipelago of what was to become the Philippines. With the colonization that followed, the Philippines became part of the Spanish Empire, ending in 1898 when the U.S. Deep State targeted Cuba’s local gold (sugar) thanks to the 15th February 1898 dubious explosion of the U.S.S. Maine battleship in the harbor of Havana. This terrorist act did trigger the Spanish-American war and the beginning of the American Colonial Era of the Philippines. The Spanish-American war was followed by the 1899—1992 Philippine—American War and the Commonwealth period that was designed as a transitional administration in preparation for the country’s full achievement of independence.

Rodrigo Roa Duterte: Philippines 16th President

Rodrigo Roa Duterte, born in 1945 in Maasin, Southern Leyte, a law graduate, with a seven times Davos City’s Mayor proven track record, became the 16th President of the Philippines. Rodrigo Roa Duterte presents a potential threat to the Washington neocon leaders as he turned towards China and Russia and waved a French farewell “au revoir” to the Washington neocon thugs. The U.S. Empire of Chaos does not take this sort of loyalty shift lightly and many of us know what the Washington entourage is capable of when countries stop toeing the Washington neoconservative fascist line.

During an October 2017 visit to Beijing China, Philippine President Rodrigo Roa Duterte, accompanied by 250 Philippine business leaders, made some remarkable comments that paved the way to what he called “a new commercial alliance as relations with longtime ally Washington deteriorate . . .In this venue, your honors, in this venue, I announce my separation from the United States.” Duterte told Chinese and Philippine business people, to applause, at a forum in the Great Hall of the People attended by Chinese Vice Premier Zhang. “Both in military, not maybe social, but economics also, America has lost.” Furthermore, President Dutarte added “For as long as I am here, do not treat us like a doormat because you’ll be sorry.” He added. “I will not speak with you. I can always go to China.”

___Screen Shot 09-04-17 at 11.24 PMaaaExercises in the disputed South China Sea have been put on hold, and 107 US troops operating drones surveilling Muslim militants will also have to leave the country soon, the Philippines Defense chief said. President Rodrigo Duterte said he wants an ongoing US-Philippine amphibious beach landing drill to be the last in his six-year presidency, with plans to halt all the 28 military exercises carried out with US forces every year.“This year would be the last,” Duterte pledged on Friday in Davao in the southern Philippines, AP reported. Dutarte also made some crude comments towards (former US. President) Barack Obama: the outspoken Philippines leader said his US counterpart Barack Obama, whom he has previously publicly called a “son-of-a-b***h,” should “go to hell.” Experts say the Philippines president’s plans to limit the presence of US troops will thwart Washington’s intention to beef up US forces in Southeast Asia in order to counter China. “President Duterte’s shoot-from-the-hip style of parochial democracy is deeply troubling,” Carl Thayer, an expert on the South China Sea, told AP. “If Duterte moves to curtail US rotational military presence from bases in the Philippines, this would undermine the US ability to deter China not only in defense of Philippines sovereignty, but regional security as well.”

Meanwhile the warmongering U.S. Empire of Chaos is remodeling Guantánamo Bay (Cuba) facilities and planning to invest a mere USD 500 million in new construction, from which USD 250 million for the hospital facilities: five additional beds: USD 50 million per bed.” Not bad for a Zimbabwe money printing style nation with twenty trillion USD debt!

Things are not doing well for the Anglo-American elite, The Bretton Woods Reserve Currency USD is losing its grip on an international community beginning to create and establish alternative competing financial products and institutions:

  • BRICSBrazilRussiaIndiaChina and South Africa as an alternative to the Bretton Woods Western nations’ USDGBPEUR and ¥EN
  • SCOShanghai Cooperation Organizationas as alternative to NATO
  • AIIBAsian Infrastructure and Investment Bank as alternative to the IMF
  • CIPSChinese inter-banking payment system as alternative to SWIFT
  • Shanghai Gold Exchange as alternative to the fraudulent financial paper markets of London and New York
  • CFFEX: China’s New China Financial Future Exchange

___Geopolitics_P_AIIB_57+13.Member.nations_aaa

The AIIB or Asian Infrastructure and Investment Bank is a major development in the international world of finances and a direct threat to US Dollar based institutions such as the Federal Reserve (FED), the IMF (International Monetary Fund), the World Bank, the Bank of England (BoE), the European Central Bank (ECB), the Bank of Japan (BoJ), and last but not least the Bank of International Settlements in Basel (BIS.)

Many of us may not have heard of the AIIB, but let’s not kid ourselves, The AIIB is a major financial threat to the 1944 Bretton Woods International Reserve Currency agreements. No less than 57 countries contributed to the start of the Asian Infrastructure Investment Bank; among others: The Philippines, France, Germany, Switzerland, Britain, South Korea, Canada, Belgium, Hungary, Ireland and Hong Kong.

But let’s get back to the Philippines, three archipelagos became of strategic importance for the geopolitical control of the U.S. Empire: the Philippines, Taiwan and Japan. As a footnote let’s not forget that following World War II, Japan and Germany remained to this very day two U.S. vassal states and US-occupied territories

To be followed….

Syria’s Pipelineistan: the Liquid Natural Gas War Between the United States of America and Russia (Part One)

“. . . There are a lot of every day human beings being marginalized by our very corrupt political system . . . [with] two political parties who are funded by predatory banks, fossil fuel giants and war profiteers…” Dr. Jill Stein | US 2016 Presidential Candidate

Looking at all the illegal wars the United States of America, the rogue Empire of Chaos, has in progress, the most complex one is probably the Syrian war. So what could drive the U.S. to undertake such a crusade in this already battered part of the world? Why is the Rogue Empire of Chaos waging yet another war? Let’s follow the money trail and look at a few facts about Syria.

Since the 1980s, Syria has been depleting its resources of own crude oil. After peaking at 650,000 bpd (barrel per day) in 1995, crude oil production has plummeted to about 380,000 bpd in 2007. With declining output and rising consumer demand for petroleum products, Syria’s overall oil balance has turned negative in 2007, thus the need for Syria to orientate itself towards new sources of revenue.

In 2009, recognizing that the heady days of Syrian oil production of the 1980s were long gone and that the sector’s future lay in transit, Syrian President Bashar Al-Assad announced a “Four Seas Strategy” (Image 1.) aimed at transforming the country into a regional hub for oil transportation between the Persian Gulf and the Black, Caspian and Mediterranean seas. Bashar Al-Assad started at taking steps to realize the country’s transit-center potential and bring the four seas strategy closer to reality.

In late 2010, Bashar Al-Assad’s government signed a memorandum of understanding with Iraq for the construction of two oil and one gas pipeline to carry gas and oil from Iraq’s Akkas and Kirkuk fields, respectively, to the Syrian port of Banias on the Mediterranean Sea. In July 2011 Iranian officials announced a $10 billion gas pipeline deal between Syria, Iraq and Iran that would transport gas from Iran’s South Pars gas field, the world’s biggest, through Iraq to Syria.

Looking back at the 2016 U.S. Presidential election Geopolitical News recalls Presidential Candidate Dr. Jill Stein as the only candidate who had the honesty to inform her voters about the real reason for the US-Syrian war (Image 2.). It’s about the United States of America and Russia controlling the Persian Gulf’s largest liquid natural gas field in the world. This gas field is shared between Qatar and its North Dome and Iran and its South Pars. Here are a few facts about the North Dome/South Pars gas field from Wikipedia:

Geopolitics_F_Qatar-Iran_North.Dome_South.Pars

Image 3. Qatari North Dome and Iranian South Pars | Wikipedia

 

The South Pars/North Dome field is a natural-gas condensate field located in the Persian Gulf. It is by far the world’s largest natural gas fieldIran and Qatar share ownership of the field. According to the International Energy Agency (IEA), the field holds an estimated 1,800 trillion cubic feet (51 trillion cubic meters) of in-situ natural gas and some 50 billion barrels (7.9 billion cubic meters) of natural gas condensates. On the list of natural gas fields it has more recoverable reserves than all other fields combined. It has significant geostrategic influence. This gas field covers an area of 9,700 square kilometres (3,700 sq mi), of which 3,700 square kilometres ,400 sq mi) (South Pars) is in Iranian territorial waters and 6,000 square kilometres (2,300 sq mi) (North Dome) is in Qatari territorial waters.

A “minute detail” that bothers the U.S. neocons is the fact that Syrian President Bashar Al Assad has refused to support the Qatari pipeline in favor of the Iranian one sponsored and supported by Russia: one of the main reasons why the US and Europe are involved in a conflict of geopolitical and geo-strategic importance: the Syrian conflict is about who will control the export of Middle Eastern gas: the United States of America or Russia?

Brazilian reporter Pepe Escobar qualifies this war as “Syria’s Pipelineistan being a war of deals, not bullets.” Please notice that the LNG reserves of Qatari-Iranian North Dome South Pars gas fields have more recoverable reserves than all other fields combined.

It’s about the geopolitics of who is going to control the supply of LNG towards Europe and the world: Qatar and its US allies defending the Petrodollar or Iran and its Russian allies defending the Petroyuan? (Image 4.)

Pipeline Two: Petrodollar U.S. side: Persian Gulf North Dome from Qatar, via Saudi Arabia, Jordan, Syria; a project supported by the United States of America and its allies: Saudi Arabia, Bahrain and the United Arab Emirates

This is the real dichotomy of the Syrian conflict.

The Four Horsemen of the 21st Century Geopolitical Apocalypse: USA, Britain, France and Israel

French President Emmanuel Macron is a fascist neoliberal (neocon) globalist towing the line of Chief European Executive Globalist German Kanzlerin Angela Merkel, who could very well be the daughter of Adolf Hitler

Chancellor Merkel paused at the Hamburg-G20 with her usual Illuminati posture.  Chancellor Merkel is en-route to destroying Germany with an U.S.A., Britain, and France man-made migrant crisis.  French President Emmanuel Macron can’t even sneeze without asking first Chancellor Merkel for permission.  

___Screen Shot 07-18-17 at 09.43 AM

France, Britain (who both triggered WWI (this will scratch British pride: but it’s time for Brits to update their own history records and swallow their Island pride, just like I had, as a Frenchman, to swallow my pride as well) and the U.S.A. are behind the self-created migrant crisis happening right now in Germany and Austria: I did coin it, not too long ago, Versailles IV in my blog article series.  

So, could this be our new European game of thrones?

—France and England are destroying Germany with the migrant crisis under the U.S. fascist Washington neocon regime leadership baton: large kudos for the international NGO destructive work of Jewish Nazi criminal George Soros supplying both financial and hardware aid.

—France, jealous of London, still aims and wants to create the Grand Paris (Greater Paris Project) to compete with London: Reuben aimlessly fighting for the birthright while Ephraim is self-destroying it.

—Meanwhile, the British island cul-de-sac is being sacked by the City of London banksters with the full support of the British government and its Tory while the island is burning under the attack of political correctness.

—Germany (US occupied territory with 22 US. Military bases on German territory on record) is on the brink of civil war (as expected and planned be the Fascist Neocon in London/Washington and duplicitous France. I just had here a foretaste of German civil war as G20 was progressing only a few blocks away from my residence, Mind you France is always meddling internationally everywhere while achieving aimlessness and international geopolitical redundancy over-qualifying to regroup with the British Island cul-de-sac.

—USA and its Wahhabi and Sunnite proxies are destabilizing the Middle East and Northern Africa: Libya, Egypt, Syria, Iraq, Yemen (via Saudis) and of course The Ukraine, with the support and financial strength of Paris/London/Tel Aviv neocons aka the Western swamp’s own creation: ISIS, ISIL, Al Qaeda, Al Nustra, IS: Thanks to the US CIA empire of chaos’ own evil creation supplying military hardware, training and financing: CIA-theft of oil in Iraq; CIA-Drug-Trafficking from Afghanistan reaping a substantial 1.2 trillion USD harvest on a yearly basis: As a footnote, it is well worth mentioning that this drug money also serves to uphold the bankrupt western fiat financial Central Banking System (Babylon) and its worthless four main paper currencies: USD/GBP/EUR/YEN, printed at libitum by our corrupt neo-fascist central banksters: ECB: European Central Bank, FED: Federal Reserve, BoE: Bank of England and last but not least the Bank of Japan: BoJ.

The most pernicious, evil, and nefarious of Israel’s inheritance is the destructive warmongering chaos created by what I’d like to name “The Four Horsemen of the 21st Century Geopolitical Apocalypse”: USA (Manasseh), Britain (Ephraim), France (Reuben) and Israel (Judah.) These Four Geopolitical Apocalyptic Horsemen have created their own brand of terrorism (ISIS, ISIL, Al Qaeda, Al Nustra, IS: all CIA subsidiaries), a fictitious enemy while using Main Stream Media Propaganda (Fakenews) to convince a gullible idiotic jaded smartphone obsessed crowd of international morons that the “war on terror” (9/11 Bataclan, Madrid, London et al), is necessary in order to maintain the US/British/French beacon of “democracy” while we murder and shed MILLIONS of innocent lives (abortion) with renown associations such as “Planned Parenthood.” Planned Parenthood proceeds also permits management personnel to afford the finer luxuries of life such as financing a Lanborghini.

Mind you the Brits are quite practical about it, they even use the “babies’ leftovers” to heat their hospital and save on heating bills! It only takes a Brit to be so permissive and hypocritical while pretending to uphold human rights and democracy (SIC)! One has to admit that Ephraim’s affront to God will and must be “accounted for.” Somehow the red thread of Ephraimite King Jeroboam’s permissiveness and duplicity (who was very instrumental in the coup d’état against King Solomon) goes on unabated: We all remember how Jeroboam introduced the Pagan Version of the Feast of Tabernacles” by moving it from the seventh to the eighth month of the year.

While Rome (Hamburg in my case) was burning (I could literally smell the smoke on my balcony during G20 looting and destructive events) the plutocrats, oligarchs and kleptocrats were assembling themselves in the Elbphilarmonie  enjoying Ludwig van Beethoven’s Ode of Joy. At this very moment, Hamburg citizens’ cars were being torched, properties rampaged, shops looted and infrastructure destroyed. What an irony is not it folks?

Hamburg Elbphilarmonie

Would the four 21st Century horsemen of the Geopolitical Apocalypse: bête noire U.S.A., hypocritical Britain, duplicitous France and idolatrous Israel, stop their war mongering, it would be fair to suggest that most likely 80% of all worldwide conflicts would stop right away.

NO wonder God will remove the birthright privileges He once had mercifully granted to Abraham and swap it with a time of “Jacob’s trouble and rebuke!” 

“Behold, the eyes of the Lord GOD are on [Israel | Babylon] the sinful kingdom, and I will destroy it from the face of the earth” (Amos 9:8).

Troubled times ahead for the U.S.A. Britain, France and Israel

The Empire of Chaos strikes again: Declaration of U.S. sanctions thus war against Russia, Germany and Austria?

Amidst geopolitical cacophony, U.S. President Donald J. Trump and Владимир Путин (Vladimir Putin) will meet for the first time in Hamburg, Germany, against the backdrop of the well-known narrative of an alleged Russian collusion and meddling into the 2016 U.S. Presidential Election.  What some astute observers describe here as the ongoing Neocon (Neo-Conservative) Washington fascist refrain. But naturally, the nefariousness of the Washington Régime and its countless destruction of lives and countries is “a given” and a “legitimate act of grandeur” as the U.S upholds its “Liberty and FreedomLeitmotiv, shoving it down the throat of our international community with tanks, missiles, weaponry and wars if necessary.

As the US/EU fascist cavalry, within the cover-up of NATO, expands East, the amount of attempted color revolutions, coup d’états and deaths rise to a level never mentioned in the Mainstream Media (CNN, BBC, Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung, Le Monde, Süd Deutsche Zeitung, the Washington Post and the New York Times) fake news narrative.  Babylon is ready to defend its Bretton Woods Reserve Currency Status (USD/EUR/GBP/YEN, and Chinese Renminbi since 2015) with wars if necessary and it has become ___screen-shot-09-17-16-at-07-09-amnecessary Ladies and Gentlemen!

Swiss historian Daniele Ganser in his brilliant work (unfortunately only in German): Die Illegale Kriege der NATO / The Illegal Wars of NATO, coins post-WWII U.S bête noire hegemon as an “Empire” being responsible for the death of at least 300 million lives since the end of World War II.

Geopolitics_F_Real.Threat.for.EU.peace.USA

But this time, the (U.S.) Empire of Chaos is isolating itself again, wanting now to supply LNG (Liquefied Natural Gas) and replace our Russian gas delivery and the upcoming €9.2 billion Nord Stream 2 pipeline project under the Baltic Sea that will double Russian gas delivery to Europe. Washington is trying to coerce Germany, Austria, France and Britain into buying U.S. energy: This time it won’t wash, Chancellor Merkel, French President Emmanuel Macron and Co. showed the Washington Empire of Chaos the finger sign threatening the U.S. with retaliations and sanctions. And by the way Сергей Викторович Лавров (Sergej Viktorovitch Lavrov), who was in Paris just one day before G20 Hamburg, confirmed that France & Germany will resume normal trade partnership with Russia thus by-passing the Washington fascist demands.

U.S. Exceptionalism and U.S. Global Terror Management Strategy | Oligarchs and Neocons’ Feudalistic Power Grab (Part Six)

There is a special breed of international financiers whose success typically is built upon certain character traits. Those include cold objectivity, immunity to patriotism, and indifference to the human condition. That profile is the basis for proposing a theoretical strategy, called the Rothschild Formula, which motivates such men to propel governments into war for the profits they yield… As long as the mechanism of central banking exists, it will be to such men an irresistible temptation to convert debt into perpetual war and war into perpetual debt.”        

  —G. Edward Griffin | Author of “The Creature from Jekyll Island

People, governments and economies of all nations must serve the needs of multinational banks and corporations.” 

—Zbigniew Brzezinski | Author of “The Grand Chessboard

Geopoliticalnews suggests a review of Part One, Part Two, Part Three of our series on “U.S. exceptionalism and its global terror management.” This alleged 21st century U.S. exceptionalism, Part Four and Part Five, doctrine is perfectly sustained by a the resurgence of virulent brand of neocon propaganda spewed by major U.S. newspapers with its goons and stooges: Part Four and Part Five.

We saw how this swaggering super-arrogant superpower, cowboys-on-steroids, imperialist U.S.A. continues to spread its “gospel of democracy”, mostly with coup d’états and wars (Afghanistan, Iraq, Libya and Ukraine, to name just a few) and defend its fiat currency: USD, EUR, GBP and YEN system against the rising alternative offered by the BRICS, China’s SCO, AIIB, the new Shanghai Gold Exchange, the Financial Future Exchange (CFFEX), the CIPS, and the (Chinese) Renminbi, which entered the Special Drawing Rights (SDR) of the International Monetary Fund (IMF) on October 1st of 2016. We reviewed the neocon financial tools: Quantitative Easing (QE) “to infinity” and derivative products such as Credit Default Swaps (CDS) as a way of kicking the financial can down the road and saw how ECB, FED, BOE and BOJ Central Banks destroy capital for the sake of bailing out the too-big-to-jail financial institutions.

As Dr. Stephen J. Sniegoski writes in: Transparent Cabal: The Neoconservative agenda, War in the Middle East, and the National Interest of Israel: “It was only the traumatic effects of the 9/11 terrorism that enabled the agenda of the neocons to become the policy of the United States of America.”

Where is the judicial foundation of all those U.S.-wars and coup d’états? Was the U.S., Britain or France threatened by Libya? What’s the heck were France (with its French President neocon Sarkozy) and Britain doing bombing Libya? Why were France and Britain meddling in Africa’s richest country and attacking its sovereignty instead of minding their own business and rebuilding their crumbling road-infrastructure or reducing their astronomic public debts, both in excess of two billion Euro?

What is Germany doing bombing Syria with the US-Allies and supporting the Empire of Chaos’ neocon imperialistic agenda instead of protecting the sovereignty of its own German territory? Where is the balance between the executive, legislative and judicial branches with its system of checks and balances? How could Angela Merkel have overstepped the judicial raison d’être of the German constitution to open Germany’s borders on September the 4th of 2015? Did Merkel consult with her government? Did Merkel democratically ask the German People?

How about the 9/11 hijacking of the U.S. Democracy? Shouldn’t have the legislative branch of the U.S government, represented by Congress, the House of Representatives and the Senate, been active? How come the U.S. Congress did not impeach the Bushes, Clinton’s and alleged Kenyan Squatter in Chief himself for drug trafficking and/or war crimes? Could not these be the signs of a resurging “democratic totalitarianism” just about to transform itself into outright fascism? Are we becoming a dystopian society?  Remember Henry Gouroux’s observation on oligarchy aka plutocracy and kleptocracy? 

The western world has being taken captive by oligarchs, plutocrats and kleptocrats represented by key cartel groups ruling the world of finances and business: We could call them the profiteering beneficiaries who can be easily classified in seven different industrial cartels: Finance, Media, Energy, Military, Pharmacy, Chemy and food:

U.S. Exceptionalism and U.S. Global Terror Management Strategy | September 11th 2001 and the Rise of The U.S. Neocons (Part 3)

__book_pepe-escobar_empire-of-chaosIn Part One and Part Two of this series, we reviewed why the United States of America has become the geopolitical Hegemon of our 21st Century. Rising powers China and Russia are threatening the geopolitical and geofinancial “command and control” neocon-led Empire of Chaos (as coined by Pepe Escobar) and forcing the U.S. to defend its US-Dollar Reserve Currency status with extraordinary and non-diplomatic means: Quantitative Easing or QE Zimbabwe style fiat paper money printing, color revolutions, coups d’états, war crimes, subversion, coercion and weapons of mass migration: Germany and Austria being the latest victims. However, China and the BRICS offer an array of geopolitical, financial and banking services providing the international community with a worthy alternative to both collapsing Petrodollar and US-Dollar:  

  • BRICS: Brazil, Russia, India, China and South Africa as an alternative to the Bretton Woods Western nations USD, GBP, EUR and ¥EN
  • SCO: Shanghai Cooperation Organization as an alternative to NATO
  • AIIB: Asian Infrastructure and Investment Bank as an alternative to the IMF
  • CIPS: Chinese inter-banking payment system as an alternative to SWIFT
  • Shanghai Gold Exchange: an alternative to the paper-fraud markets of London and New York
  • CFFEX: China’s New, China Financial Future Exchange

It is also well worth noticing the entry of the Chinese Renminbi (CN¥ or Chinese Yuan) into the Special Drawing Right (SDR): the Elite currency club of the International Monetary Fund (IMF). As of October 1st of 2016, the Chinese Renminbi will have entered the privileged club of pristine world reserve currencies: US Dollar, Euro, British Pound and Japanese ¥en to become its fifth international reserve currency:

___screen-shot-09-17-16-at-07-09-amA few days back, we remembered September 11th 2001 15h anniversary. We are still longing for the full disclosure of what really happened. Similar to President John F. Kennedy’s 1963 assassination in Dallas, we most likely will never find out. Nonetheless, we now have proof of 9/11’s Mainstream Media cover-up as well as strong evidence for a miniature nuclear implosion/detonation with the use of thermite.

9/11 remains the coup d’état par excellence : A terror attack applied upon the American Sheeple and the creation of a fictitious enemy the Establishment can adapt, relocate and rename at anytime: The perfect enactment of a self-made neocon catastrophe that rallied people internationally, emotionally and passionately behind a newly created brand of terror: Al Qaeda, ISIS, The Levant, IS, ISIL, The Islamist State, Daesh or Al Nusra. All should be considered the neocons’ “War on Terror trademark“; a mainstream propaganda tool easily sold to a Western crowd way too busy with ubiquitous Internet, smartphones or Britain’s Got Talent. After 9/11, Al Qaeda 2.0 or ISIS would follow. Trained mercenaries are backed up financially by the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia; they often follow the Wahhabi strain of Islam that produces so many ISIS militants: Thanks to Washington’s acquiescence.  An updated version of ISIS, The Islamic State, would follow in Syria after Russia and China refused a similar French-led NATO bombing on Libya.

geopolitics_f_the-balkans_aThe iniquitous 1999 US-NATO dismantling of Yugoslavia (that preceded 9/11) was followed by a 78-day NATO “humanitarian bombing” of Kosovo with the help of German co-conspirator. Kosovo did not pose any threat within Yugoslavia or to any members of the NATO alliance whatsoever: Thus a flagrant crime of aggression in violation of Article 2.4 of the UN Charter. As we shall see in the next installment (Part 5) Kosovo’s capture could have been on U.S. Pentagon’s drawing board for three main reasons:

  • Control the Balkan pipeline energy-grid between Western Europe, Eurasia, and Russia
  • Control the heroin Balkan route from Central Asia’s Golden Crescent (Afghanistan) to Europe and beyond
  • Control South Eastern Europe with  1000 acres (3 km²) of U.S. military footprint: Camp Bondsteel

In a Global Research‘s article: Neocon 101: What do Neo-conservatives Believe? Global Research author asks the question: “What is the difference between a neoconservative and a conservative: Liberals first applied the ‘neo’ prefix to their comrades who broke ranks to become more conservative in the 1960s and 70s. The defectors remained more liberal on some domestic policy issues. But foreign policy stands have always defined neoconservatism. Where other conservatives favored détente and containment of the Soviet Union, neocons pushed direct confrontation, which became their raison d’être during the 1970s and 80’s.”

Mutual Assured Destruction or mutually assured destruction (MAD) [was] a doctrine of military strategy and national security policy in which a full-scale use of nuclear weapons by two or more opposing sides would cause the complete annihilation of both the attacker and the defender … It was based on the theory of deterrence, which holds that the threat of using strong weapons was a military strategy” dear to President Regan during the Cold War era. Ronald Reagan mantra was “peace through strength“, “peace was the end; strength was the mean“: it was based on a policy of military détente and as much as possible entente cordiale. 

U.S. neocons have pushed aside the Mutual Assured Destruction (MAD) doctrine to replace it with preemptive strikeDid you catch that? Preemptive strike…? The next installment (Part 4 of this series) will magnify the thought of “Preemptive Strike” and the nefariousness of these U.S. fascist neocons and their warmongering philosophy.

Beliefs: Conservatives

Beliefs: Neo Conservatives

MAD as Military deterrence Preemptive military strike | war
Peace through strength Use of U.S. unrivaled military power
Peace is the end, strength is the mean Forcefully promote U.S. values around the world: color revolutions and coups d’états
Reservation about military intervention Cultivation of a U.S. Empire (NGO propaganda)
Reservation about so called “nation building” “Democratic” transformation of the Middle East (Iraq, Egypt, Libya and Syria)
Policy of détente and containment with Russia Policy of aggression against Russia (NATO Anaconda-2016)
Multipolar world is supported U.S. is the unchallenged superpower and “benevolent” global Hegemon
Potential U.S.-threats are appeased or contained Potential U.S.-threats are confronted aggressively

__book_william-blum_americasdeadliest-export_democracyIn his blog-article “American Exceptionalism and the Election Made in Hell (Or Why I’d Vote for Trump Over Hillary)”, William Blum, author of America’s Deadliest Export: Democracy – The Truth About US Foreign Policy and Everything Else, writes:

My main concern is foreign policy. American foreign policy is the greatest threat to world peace, prosperity, and the environment [emphasis Geopoliticalnews]. And when it comes to foreign policy, Hillary Clinton is a[n utter] disaster. From Iraq and Syria to Libya and Honduras the world is a much worse place because of her; so much so that I’d call her a war criminal who should be prosecuted. And not much better can be expected on domestic issues from this woman who was paid $675,000 by Goldman Sachs [fascist bankster cabal criminals] – one of the most reactionary, anti-social corporations in this sad world – for four speeches and even more than that in political donations in recent years. Add to that Hillary’s willingness to serve for six years on the board of Walmart while her husband was governor of Arkansas. Can we expect to change corporate behavior by taking their money?”

Guest Article: “Trump’s Anti-Interventionism – Neocons Hate It As Anti-War Left Comes Around”

Original Link: http://www.zerohedge.com/news/2016-06-22/trumps-anti-interventionism-neocons-hate-it-anti-war-left-comes-around

Submitted by John Walsh via LewRockwell.com,

Until recently the progressive mind has been resolutely closed and stubbornly frozen in place against all things Trump.

But cracks are appearing in the ice.  With increasing frequency over the last few months, some of the most thoughtful left and progressive figures have begun to speak favorably of aspects of Trump’s foreign policy.  Let us hear from these heretics, among them William Greider, Glen Ford, John Pilger, Jean Bricmont, Stephen F. Cohen and William Blum.  Their words are not to be construed as “endorsements,” but rather an acknowledgment of Trump’s anti-interventionist views, the impact those views are having and the alternative he poses to Hillary Clinton in the current electoral contest.

First, let’s consider the estimable William Greider, a regular contributor to The Nation and author of Secrets of the Temple.  He titled a recent article for the Nation, “Donald Trump Could be The Military Industrial Complex’s Worst Nightmare: The Republican Front Runner is Against Nation Building.  Imagine That.” 

Greider’s article is brief, and I recommend reading every precious word of it.  Here is but one quote: “Trump has, in his usual unvarnished manner, kicked open the door to an important and fundamental foreign-policy debate.”  And here is a passage from Trump’s interview with the Washington Post that Greider chooses to quote:

“‘I watched as we built schools in Iraq and they’d be blown up,’ Trump told the editors.  ‘And we’d build another one and it would get blown up. And we would rebuild it three times. And yet we can’t build a school in Brooklyn.… at what point do you say hey, we have to take care of ourselves. So, you know, I know the outer world exists and I’ll be very cognizant of that but at the same time, our country is disintegrating, large sections of it, especially in the inner cities.'”

Trump talks about building infrastructure for the inner cities, especially better schools for African American children, rather than bombing people of color halfway around the world!  That is hardly racism.  And it is not how the mainstream media wants us to think of The Donald.

Next, Glen Ford, the eloquent radical Left executive editor of Black Agenda Report, a superb and widely read outlet, penned an article in March 2016, with the following title: “Trump Way to the Left of Clinton on Foreign Policy – In Fact, He’s Damn Near Anti-Empire.” Ford’s piece is well worth reading in its entirety; here are just a few quotes :

“Trump has rejected the whole gamut of U.S. imperial war rationales, from FDR straight through to the present.”

 

“If Trump’s tens of millions of white, so-called ‘Middle American’ followers stick by him, it will utterly shatter the prevailing assumption that the American public favors maintenance of U.S. empire by military means.”

 

“Trump shows no interest in ‘spreading democracy,’ like George W. Bush, or assuming a responsibility to ‘protect’ other peoples from their own governments, like Barack Obama and his political twin, Hillary Clinton.”

 

“It is sad beyond measure that the near-extinction of independent Black politics has placed African Americans in the most untenable position imaginable at this critical moment: in the Hillary Clinton camp.

Next, let’s turn to John Pilger, the Left wing Australian journalist and documentary film maker who has been writing about Western foreign policy with unimpeachable accuracy and wisdom since the Vietnam War era.   Here are some of his comments on Trump:

“..Donald Trump is being presented (by the mass media) as a lunatic, a fascist.  He is certainly odious; but he is also a media hate figure.  That alone should arouse our skepticism.”

 

“Trump’s views on migration are grotesque, but no more grotesque than those of David Cameron. It is not Trump who is the Great Deporter from the United States, but the Nobel Peace Prize winner, Barack Obama.”

 

“In 1947, a series of National Security Council directives described the paramount aim of American foreign policy as ‘a world substantially made over in [America’s] own image’.  The ideology was messianic Americanism. We were all Americans. Or else. …”

 

“Donald Trump is a symptom of this, but he is also a maverick. He says the invasion of Iraq was a crime; he doesn’t want to go to war with Russia and China. The danger to the rest of us is not Trump, but Hillary Clinton. She is no maverick. She embodies the resilience and violence of a system whose vaunted ‘exceptionalism’ is totalitarian with an occasional liberal face.

The money quote is: “The danger to the rest of us is not Trump, but Hillary Clinton.”  When Pilger submitted his article to the “progressive” magazine Truthout, this sentence was deleted, censored as he reported, along with a few of the surrounding sentences.  Such censorship had not been imposed on Pilger by Truthout ever before.  Truthout’s commitment to free speech apparently has limits in the case of The Donald versus Hillary, rather severe ones.  So one must read even the progressive press with some skepticism when it comes to Trump.

Trump has also been noticed by the Left in Europe, notably by the sharp minded Jean Bricmont, physicist and author of Humanitarian Imperialism who writes here:

 

(Trump) “is the first major political figure to call for ‘America First’ meaning non-interventionism.  He not only denounces the trillions of dollars spent in wars, deplores the dead and wounded American soldiers, but also speaks of the Iraqi victims of a war launched by a Republican President. He does so to a Republican public and manages to win its support. He denounces the empire of US military bases, claiming to prefer to build schools here in the United States. He wants good relations with Russia. He observes that the militarist policies pursued for decades have caused the United States to be hated throughout the world. He calls Sarkozy a criminal who should be judged for his role in Libya. Another advantage of Trump: he is detested by the neoconservatives, who are the main architects of the present disaster.”

And then there is Stephen F. Cohen, contributing editor for The Nation and Professor Emeritus of Russian History at Princeton and NYU.  Cohen makes the point that Trump, alone among the presidential candidates, has raised five urgent and fundamental questions, which all other candidates in the major parties have either scorned or more frequently ignored. The five questions all call into question the interventionist warlike stance of the US for the past 20 plus years. Cohen enumerates the questions here, thus:

“Should the United States always be the world’s leader and policeman?

 

“What is NATO’s proper mission today, 25 years after the end of the Soviet Union and when international terrorism is the main threat to the West?

 

“Why does Washington repeatedly pursue a policy of regime change, in Iraq, Libya, possibly in Ukraine, and now in Damascus, even though it always ends in “disaster”?

 

“Why is the United States treating Putin’s Russia as an enemy and not as a security partner?

 

“And should US nuclear weapons doctrine include a no-first use pledge, which it does not?”

Cohen comments in detail on these questions here. Whatever one may think of the answers Trump has provided to the five questions, there is no doubt that he alone among the presidential candidates has raised them – and that in itself is an important contribution.

At this point, I mention my own piece, which appeared late last year.  Entitled “Who is the Arch Racist, Hillary or The Donald”?  Like Cohen’s pieces, it finds merit with the Trump foreign policy in the context of posing a question.

Finally, let us turn to Bill Blum, who wrote an article entitled, “American Exceptionalism and the Election Made in Hell (Or Why I’d Vote for Trump Over Hillary).”  Again there is little doubt about the stance of Blum, who is the author of Killing Hope: U.S. Military and CIA Interventions Since World War II, a scholarly compendium, which Noam Chomsky calls “Far and away the best book on the topic.”

Blum begins his piece:

“If the American presidential election winds up with Hillary Clinton vs. Donald Trump, and my passport is confiscated, and I’m somehow FORCED to choose one or the other, or I’m PAID to do so, paid well … I would vote for Trump.”

 

“My main concern is foreign policy. American foreign policy is the greatest threat to world peace, prosperity, and the environment. And when it comes to foreign policy, Hillary Clinton is an unholy disaster. From Iraq and Syria to Libya and Honduras the world is a much worse place because of her; so much so that I’d call her a war criminal who should be prosecuted.”

And he concludes:

“He (Trump) calls Iraq ‘a complete disaster’, condemning not only George W. Bush but the neocons who surrounded him. ‘They lied. They said there were weapons of mass destruction and there were none. And they knew there were none. There were no weapons of mass destruction.’ He even questions the idea that ‘Bush kept us safe’, and adds that ‘Whether you like Saddam or not, he used to kill terrorists’.”

“Yes, he’s personally obnoxious. I’d have a very hard time being his friend. Who cares?”

I conclude with Blum’s words because they are most pertinent to our present situation.  The world is living through a perilous time when the likes of the neocons and Hillary Clinton could lead us into a nuclear Armageddon with their belligerence toward Russia and their militaristic confrontation with China.

The reality is that we are faced with a choice between Clinton and Trump, a choice which informs much of the above commentary.  Survival is at stake and we must consider survival first if our judgments are to be sane.
