Perpetual War Seems Real To Me

I’ve been struggling to find a way to make sense of the increasingly frequent opinions/comments here at POM that propose, with little or no evidence, that America’s foreign wars are staged; essentially fake.

https://www.counterpunch.org/2020/01/07/an-eyewitness-to-the-horrors-of-the-us-forever-wars-speaks-out/

I offer one piece of evidence to refute this notion. The eyewitness account in the above link seems genuine enough to me. The author has a lifetime of first-hand knowledge and a consistent anti-war message offered to all who will listen.

So, I offer this as a challenge to the proponents of “wars are not real” to post some evidence of their own. I am open to changing my mind, but not based solely on the opinion of anyone that can’t bring a few tidbits of reality that we may all examine.

What have you got to share?

In the meantime, I will repeat my pathetically ineffective call for “No More Endless War.”

Has "the game" really changed?

Global Warfare: “We’re Going to Take out 7 Countries in 5 Years: Iraq, Syria, Lebanon, Libya, Somalia, Sudan & Iran..” – Global ResearchGlobal Research – Centre for Research on Globalization

US Defense Secretary Mark T. Esper described the assassination of General Soleimani as a “decisive defensive action” while confirming that the operation ordered by Donald Trump had been carried out by the Pentagon. “The game has changed” said Defense Secretary Esper.Michel Chossudovsky, January 4, 2019

If it isn’t our old friend Amy Goodman (AKA, Janis) with the retired “good” general managing public perception as the new Middle East Plan is unveiled. It hardly seems – to me at least – that “the game has changed.” https://www.globalresearch.ca/we-re-going-to-take-out-7-countries-in-5-years-iraq-syria-lebanon-libya-somalia-sudan-iran/5166

It’s the same game, always. Why would anyone want to continue playing this game?

Great Balls of Fire

This year the combination of solstice, Christmas and New Year pushed the limits of our quiet and peace here on the West bench of the Bridger Mountain Range, Montana. Beloved house guests stayed a few days too long. Then a second wave came rather unexpectedly to replace the first bunch. Cooking for a group, instead of the usual two. Remaining courteous. Deferring, for whatever idiotic reason. It’s all part of the game, I suppose. Too much of a good thing.

Well, as one can hardly avoid all media when guests are in the house, there will be blood. We have right-wingers and left-wingers, and everything in between. One story that broke really frayed the edges of civility — the “White Helmets” and Syrian (Assad) “gassing civilians.”

In order to perception manage us any harder, these freaks are going to have to go around literally confiscating our ears and eyeballs.

Media works. Propaganda works. Lies, lies, lies. We will survive. Plan B next year. I want to thank PBS (scum) for pulling back the curtain to expose the reality of life in America. As they say, “bettter luck next time.”

Too many sheepdogs. Where’s our hero in shining armor?

Something big is in the works.  One can only speculate.  Negative interest rates in Europe.  President attacking the Fed.  $75 billion per day being pumped into the system because banks know when the music stops, there aren’t enough seats left for everyone.  Nothing kills creditors faster than a crash.  Or there’s the slow, painful method of negative interest rates as far as the eye can see. 

The environment is indeed facing an emergency, not just the real damage that’s seen, but because so many have placed their faith in the perpetrators of the Big Con.   Big oil really does pollute the air we breathe.  Big Ag poisons our land, water and food with chemicals and genetic warfare.  Big war, well, killing is their business, their only business.

“Regime change” + “make the economy scream” = neoliberalism = death

https://mronline.org/2018/03/08/the-world-market-north-south-relations-and-neoliberalism/

As we approach another yet another fake ceremony pretending that 9/11 was not an inside job, I’ve been thinking of the coincidence of that date and the other significant events that happened on that date.  September 11 is not just a date to remember because of the 2001 razing of the Twin Towers and Building #7 in New York City.  It also commemorates the anniversary of 1) the birth of neoliberalism and 2) the military coup in Chile ordered by Sec. of State Henry Kissinger and executed by the CIA. 

Duly elected president of Chile, Salvador Allende, was forced out, replaced by General Augusto Pinochet, and later assassinated.  The primary objective of the September 11, 1973 coup was the neoliberal economic transformation, which led to rapid price increases for basic goods and looting of the nation’s most valuable natural resource, copper.  But even more important, perhaps, was the denigration of national sovereignty – creating a vassal state ruled by a puppet dictator.

The Smoke Between Two Mirrors

https://www.moonofalabama.org/

One of my usual stops is Moon of Alabama.  Today, while the topic of comparing various U.S. and Russian weapons technology was being discussed, a comment by “O” caught my eye.  O’s simple statement: “Putin, Trump and Netanyahu are owned by the same Chabad International Crime syndicate.” Is that so?  I have no way of knowing.  I did save the above image for so long now I can’t remember where it came from.  Apologies to its creator for lack of proper credit.

Chabad, allegedly founded in 1775, is an Orthodox Jewish Hasidic movement originating in Russia, moving to Poland in the 1930s, and on to the United States before WWII, where it remains centered in Brooklyn’s Crown Heights neighborhood.

Dean Henderson’s new book, Nephilim Crown 5G Apocalypse, makes a compelling argument that the computer revolution is the most recent installment by royal bloodline families seeking to control humanity. “The roll out of their well-tested battlefield weapons system known as 5G represents the pinnacle in their use of electromagnetic frequencies to literally remote control what these feudalists have for 8,000 years seen as their human herd.”

Ramblings, football is life, and, oh yeah, about a place called Iwo Jima

A year ago I attended my fiftieth class reunion, Billings Central Catholic High School, Billings, Montana. If you are anywhere close, or even if thirty years away, my advice would be don’t bother. Two things were upsetting … the general level of intelligence is not indicative of fifty years of forward movement, and … I’ll be be delicate here, I won’t  be cruel or crude … so many of the women and quite a few of the men too … have gotten really fat. A couple of girls I dated were there, and all I could think was “Phew! Dodged a bullet!”

But that is all cosmetic. It goes deeper. People and attitudes do not change. I was an outsider in high school, and fifty years later, I was still an outsider. That’s a two-edged sword: I would not belong to a club that would have me as a member, but I wanted, like everyone, to be accepted and admired. In high school I did not like being an outsider and took no pride in my status. That mindset, however, inability to blend into the group, has molded me into the person I am, gave me self-employment and a happy life. Two-edged sword indeed.
