THE BULLY AND THE BOMBS

THE DANGERS OF CONTEMPORARY US-AMERICAN SELF-PERCEPTION.

Shortcut through the Propaganda Matrix.

Cutting through the matrix of propaganda and spin, there is no doubt that the support of terrorist organizations in Libya, the import of foreign fighters from Mazar  E-Sharif, the NATO, Qatari and other allied Special forces on the ground in Libya, the bombing of infrastructure, the bombing of civilians, the internal displacement of tens of thousands of Libyans, the ethnic cleansing and massacres on most probably over 20.000 black Libyans all constitute blatant war crimes. Objectively, a civilized world community would have to demand that NATO and NATO allied political and military leaders were charged with the most serious crimes known to mankind, faced war crimes tribunals, received a fair and transparent trial, and were sentenced according to their deeds.

Cutting through the matrix of propaganda, there is no doubt that the NATO countries support terrorist organizations that are operating inside Syria. Terrorist organizations that are financed, trained, and materially as well as logistically supported by NATO countries. Objectively, and legally NATO and NATO-Allied political and military leaders ought to be charged and tried for support of terrorist organizations, crime against the peace, and a number of other charges.A covert or undeclared war does not lend legitimacy to it. On the contrary, an undeclared war is utterly illegal.

December 2011. The Congress of the Conservative Party in the USA. Party members and want to be presidential candidates are openly discussing war against foreign, sovereign countries, including Syria and Iran. It is openly discussed and agreed upon, that the United States of America should begin to assassinate Russian and Iranian Scientists.

Not even the National Socialists would ever have openly, for the entire world to witness, discussed the assassination of Russian, English or American scientists. Not even the National Socialists in Germany would have openly declared that they perceive it as their right and privilege to assassinate the head of state of foreign nations.

There is something that has gone terribly awry with the self perception of US-Americans, and it is by far the factor that is the greatest contributor to the present situation. Citizens of the USA and allied nations ought to ask them selves the question whether they want to allow their elected and unelected leaders to initiate a war that very well could be “the war to end all wars”. Not because there will be won a final victory, but because it is very unlikely that there will be anyone who will be able to fight a war after it has ended.

Some of the questions that urgently need to be answered are: “Is my government providing freedom and security, or is my government cooperating with terrorist organizations like Al Qaeda, the Libyan Islamic Fighting Group who murdered numerous US Soldiers in Iraq. Is it dangerous that Senator John McCain, who spent five years under the control of some of the Soviet Unions most prominent mind control experts is chairing the Armed Services Committee ? Is it ok that there exists a presidential order that allows us to murder the heads of state of sovereign nations ? Is it acceptable that Zbigniev Brzezinski, whose declared goal it is to manipulate the USA into a nuclear conflict with Russia is one of the closest advisors to my countries President. Would I protest if Russia would finance riots in Washington ? Would I demand that Russia stops interfering into the internal affairs of the USA ? Can it stand that my government has been permanently involved in wars of aggression, state coups, torture, murder, kidnappings, drug running, money laundering, and just about any evil one possibly can perceive ? ” Then ask yourselves, what has gone awry ? Why is it that we generally perceive ourselves as guardians of freedom and democracy, while our national police forces become ever more militarized, while we have fascist laws like the Patriot Act, and while the greater part of the world population perceives us as exactly the evil that we are claiming to deplore ? Why is that so ? What am I going to do about it ?

Only a few days ago an ABC interview with the President of the Syrian Arab Republic, Bashar Al-Assad was aired. Subsequent to airing the interview, Bashar Al-Assad was denounced as being “absolutely detached from reality”. Now, what is reality ? Is reality the war preparing propaganda that has been aired about Syria over the last eight months ?

Like his father, President Bashar Al-Assad is an extremely intelligent, well-informed, well-educated, well-mannered, and extremely competent statesman. His statements about the ongoing covert war against Syria were, objectively, the greatest possible understatement. While referring to ” some criminal elements, some people with ties to foreign countries, some drug smugglers, some extremists and armed gangs” Al-Assad offered the USA an olive branch of peace. Syria is not interested in a conflict with the USA, and not because it could not defend itself.

Had President Bashar Al-Assad spoken frankly to ABC and the world, he could have said something like: ” Led by the USA, NATO special operations teams have operated inside Syria for months. Our intelligence services have evidence for these operations having been actively prepared for over ten months. NATO is arming and financing Muslim Brotherhood fighters from NATO bases in Turkey. Saudi Lebanese citizen and former Lebanese PM Hariri is implicated in drug and arms running operations and support of armed gangs that are led by NATO inside Syria. Our Intelligence Services have evidence for the fact that the Saudi Arabian Interior Ministry has deployed Al Qaeda´s Omar Brigade to Syria. The Omar Brigade is Al Qaeda´s assassination expert team, which has previously operated in Iraq to assassinate Iraqi political and military leaders that were not supportive of the US Occupation of Iraq. There is something that has gone terribly awry with the self perception of US American citizens, and this state of affairs is dangerous.

The Time is Now.

US-American citizens could ask them selves the question: “How would I perceive it, if Russian Minister of Foreign Affairs Lavrov said, that the citizens of New York and Washington should turn the occupy protests into an US Spring and topple the US Government” ? So why is it then ok, that McCain openly asks the citizens of Moscow to topple their government.

Ask yourselves, if science is made by testing hypothesis or by proclamation. The political science of Hillary Clinton, when claiming that the Russian election was a “fraud” is political science by proclamation, because evidence she has non. Do you think for a moment that she would withhold evidence of election fraud from the public if she had any ?

Let´s face it. For any US-American elected or not elected leader who wants to continue the expansion of US hegemony by means of covert and overt illegal war, by assassination, by murder and ma-ham, a Russian President of the caliber of Vladimir Putin is the worst case scenario. One might have appreciated a second Yeltsin who strip sold Russian assets rather than a Putin who increased the GNP of Russia by some hundred percent. One might have wished for a second Medvedjev, who knew his place and tried to appease the Bully with the Bombs.

Another Putin is just about the best that could happen for preserving Russian integrity, and Russian integrity is implicit of it´s alliance with Syria and Iran. The world is in a state of extreme crisis. US-Citizens need to ask them selves the question if they want to allow the likes of Brzezinski, who has openly stated that he desires a nuclear conflict with Russia, to run your country.

Sorry. As much as the rest of the world would like to help you decent American People to bring your house in order, but contrary to your own government, we do not consider it our right nor privilege to interfere into your nations internal affairs. This one, you have to solve on your own. Believe me, when you begin doing so, you will have the support of every peace-loving citizen of this world. You could begin by asking your selves if your current self perception, as person, as nation, as member of a peaceful international community is coherent with reality, and if not, how to right that which has gone so terribly awry.
