War is Good Money, War is Good Business – Former Marine

  • Published on Aug 8, 2017
    Former US Marine Corps Captain Matthew Hoh, who resigned his State Department job in opposition to the Afghan war, tells RT why the war in Afghanistan will never end.
US 'defence' (war really) budget is well over US$1T when all the discretionary spending are added ! It is over 50% of tax revenues!

US ‘defence’ (war really) budget.

Discretionary spending in the FY 2013 budget was slashed to $1.264 trillion from $1.319 trillion budgeted in FY 2012. America is a WAR economy!

In this ground-breaking book, Mark Curtis reveals the covert history of British collusion with radical Islamic and terrorist groups. Secret Affairs shows how governments since the 1940s have connived with militant forces to control oil resources and overthrow governments. The story of how Britain has helped nurture the rise of global terrorism has never been told.

US ‘Created the Monster’ of Taliban, ISIS – Former Pentagon Official

  • Published on May 30, 2017
    Top military advisors in the Trump administration are calling for a surge of 3,000-5,000 troops in Afghanistan, upon which US-coalition forces unleashed 460 airstrikes last month, the highest number in nearly five years. In Iraq, their security forces still seem incapable of bringing peace to the troubled region, even after a US investment of $25 billion. Former Pentagon official Michael Maloof joins RT America’s Anya Parampil to discuss. He also reflects on the legacy of former US national security adviser Zbigniew Brzezinski, who died on Friday, as the primary architect of the US policy of nurturing the Taliban as an anti-Soviet force.

Ron Paul: President Trump — Toss Your Generals’ War Escalation Plans In the Trash

  • President Trump: Toss Your Generals’ War Escalation Plans In the Trash
    by Ron Paul, https://www.ronpaulinstitute.org/
    By the end of this month, Defense Secretary James Mattis and National Security Advisor HR McMaster will deliver to President Trump their plans for military escalations in Afghanistan, Iraq, and Syria. President Trump would be wise to rip the plans up and send his national security team back to the drawing board – or replace them. There is no way another “surge” in Afghanistan and Iraq (plus a new one in Syria) puts America first. There is no way doing the same thing over again will succeed any better than it did the last time.

    Near the tenth anniversary of the US war on Afghanistan – seven years ago – I went to the Floor of Congress to point out that the war makes no sense. The original authorization had little to do with eliminating the Taliban. It was a resolution to retaliate against those who attacked the United States on September 11, 2001. From what we know now, the government of Saudi Arabia had far more to do with the financing and planning of 9/11 than did the Taliban. But we’re still pumping money into that lost cause. We are still killing Afghanis and in so doing creating the next generation of terrorists.

    The war against ISIS will not end with its defeat in Mosul and Raqqa. We will not pack up and go home. Instead, the Pentagon and State Department have both said that US troops would remain in Iraq after ISIS is defeated. The continued presence of US troops in Iraq will provide all the recruiting needed for more ISIS or ISIS-like resistance groups to arise, which will in turn lead to a permanent US occupation of Iraq. The US “experts” have completely misdiagnosed the problem so it no surprise that their solutions will not work. They have claimed that al-Qaeda and ISIS arose in Iraq because we left, when actually they arose because we invaded in the first place.

    General David Petraeus is said to have a lot of influence over HR McMaster, and in Syria he is pushing for the kind of US troop “surge” that he still believes was successful in Iraq. The two are said to favor thousands of US troops to fight ISIS in eastern Syria instead of relying on the US-sponsored and Kurdish-led Syrian Democratic Forces to do the job. This “surge” into Syria would also lead to a lengthy US occupation of a large part of that country, as it is unlikely that the US would return the territory to the Syrian government. Would it remain an outpost of armed rebels that could be unleashed on Assad at the US President’s will? It’s hard to know from week to week whether “regime change” in Syria is a US priority or not. But we do know that a long-term US occupation of half of Syria would be illegal, dangerous, and enormously expensive.

    President Trump’s Generals all seem to be pushing for a major US military escalation in the Middle East and south Asia. The President goes back and forth, one minute saying “we’re not going into Syria,” while the next seeming to favor another surge. He has given the military much decision-making latitude and may be persuaded by his Generals that the only solution is to go in big. If he follows such advice, it is likely his presidency itself will be buried in that graveyard of empires.

NATO Plans to Deploy More Troops to Afghanistan

  • Published on Apr 30, 2017
    The NATO Secretary General says the alliance is planning to boost its troop presence in Afghanistan. Jens Stoltenberg cited the challenging security situation in the country for the additional deployment. He added that the alliance also plans to increase its role in the fight against terrorism by training local forces. The troops are expected to join the 13-thousand in the Resolute Support mission, which is a train, assist and advise mission. The 28-member alliance is expected to make a final decision on the increase in June. It will also decide on the deployment length that is currently renewed annually.

America’s Illegal Wars of Conquest. Terrorist Embedded Propagandists, Demonizing the Target Countries

US_War_propaganda_ISIS_Syria_MiddleEast

  • None of these countries: Syria, Afghanistan, Iraq, Libya, Yemen, Sudan, Somalia ; attacked America nor threatened American interests. So, why is America invading these countries and waging wars against these nations?
  • America’s Illegal Wars of Conquest. Terrorist Embedded Propagandists, Demonizing the Target Countries
    by Mark Taliano, http://www.globalresearch.ca/  
    Patterns have long since emerged.  We know that each illegal war of conquest is prefaced by a Public Relations campaign that demonizes the target country’s leader and its government as it lies about on-the-ground realities.  Muammar Gaddafi, for example, was presented to Western media consumers as a lunatic and despot. The Western narratives, however, were contradicted by the fact that he earned broad-based support from Libyans, all of whom enjoyed public services such as free healthcare and schooling, and a high standard of living.

    The same demonization campaign is being waged against the hugely popular Dr. Bashar al-Assad, the democratically –elected President of Syria.

    Terrorist –embedded propagandists teach us that he is an evil dictator who kills his own people, and that “he must go”; however, credible evidence inverts this logic.

    Henry Lowendorf, a member of the Executive Board of the U.S Peace Council’s Peace and Fact-Finding Delegation to Syria — recently returned from Syria — reports, that, “What we saw (in Syria) goes against everything we read in the United States.”

    He repudiates the Western media’s demonization campaign against the government of President Assad and the Syrian Arab Army in these words:

    “When you go to Syria, which I did last month, the popularity of the government and the Syrian Arab Army is rampant. It’s not out of some dream fantasy. It comes obviously from the government and the army being the only thing between living a secular life on the one hand and the hatred and violence of ISIS and the various other terrorist groups underwritten by the terrorist Saudis and US and their allies on the other. The refugees who don’t leave Syria do not flee to the terrorist side, they flee to the government side, in huge numbers. So would all of us in similar circumstances. Syrians do not want their country turned into Afghanistan, Iraq, Libya, Yemen, Sudan, Somalia, or any of the other countries the US has liberated.”[i] 

    The reality is an inversion of the propaganda lies fed to Western audiences.  In fact, President Assad must stay, for the sake of civilization, and for the sake of destroying Western-backed terrorism.  Each time Empire succeeds in destroying another country, the problem of terrorism worsens – as might be expected. The destruction of Libya, for example, set the stage for the attempted destruction of Syria.
