USA declares war on democracy

by Kevin Ryan, Press TV

Since the days of President Woodrow Wilson – that is, for roughly 100 years – the USA has been on a self-styled crusade to “make the world safe for democracy.”

Colossal wars, hot and cold, were fought against German kaisers and fuhrers, Russian communists, and Third World nationalists. The American people were told they were “defending democracy.”

Americans slaughtered 3.5 million Vietnamese, and nearly another million Cambodians, to “defend democracy” in Southeast Asia.

They murdered millions of Iraqis through wars and sanctions to “defend democracy” in the Middle East.

According to André Vltchek and Noam Chomsky’s book On Western Terrorism, the US government has murdered between 55 and 60 million people since World War II in wars and interventions all over the world. If we believe the imperial propagandists, this American Holocaust has been one big defense of democracy.

But now, on the eve of the 100th anniversary of World War I, the US has embarked on a new crusade – to make the world UNSAFE for democracy.

In Ukraine, Venezuela, and Thailand, the US is spending billions of dollars to unconstitutionally eject democratically-elected governments. In Palestine, the US has been trying to overthrow the democratically-elected Hamas government ever since it came to power. In Egypt, the US – under Zionist pressure – recently overthrew the only genuinely democratic government in 5,000 years of recorded history. In Syria, the US insists that the people must not be given the opportunity to re-elect Assad, no matter how many international observers and safeguards ensure honest elections. And in Turkey, the US is undermining the democratically-elected Prime Minister Erdogan in favor of CIA puppet Fethullah Gulen.

Taking the long view, the US is working patiently to destroy democracy in Iran, Russia, and Latin America.

Why does the US government hate democracy?

Because the international bankers who own the US government and run the US empire cannot always buy enough votes to impose their will on every country. So democracy is fine – as long as voters elect the New World Order candidate. But if they vote for a candidate who doesn’t suit the oligarchs, get ready for a coup!

The banksters will overthrow any government that stands up to them – even in the USA. The “termination with extreme prejudice” of the presidency of John F. Kennedy sent a message to all future US presidents.

Today’s Ridiculous Pro-Regime Change Propaganda – What’s Old is New Again

by Scott Creighton

UPDATE: See the slick “I am a Ukrainian” video at the end of this article. It’s slightly better propaganda but just another KONY 2012 campaign. Again, nothing new.

————

As the real economy continues to shrink with jobs becoming even more scarce, it would appear there is one sector of the economy that is literally “booming” and that would be the “Ridiculous Pro-Regime Change Propaganda” industry.

With varying degrees of intensity, the regime change machine is up and running in six “unfriendly” nations which are all targets of our “freedom and democracy” agenda: Russia, North Korea, Syria, Thailand, the Ukraine and Venezuela. In some cases it’s simply a matter of setting the ground work for future calls for another “humanitarian intervention”. In others, bombs are exploding and bullets are flying with the body-count climbing fast and furious.

When sycophants get wind of a sea change, of a shift in the global tide of economic opportunism, they are rarely talented enough to generate the kinds of fresh ideas needed to set them apart from the gaggle of preening wannabees who surround them.

Everyone at this point understands that they can get ahead by jumping on the globalization bandwagon with some eye-catching propaganda that might make headlines for a minute or two and help our Peace Prize “winning” president justify another humanitarian bombing. The trouble is, these C+ guys by their own nature, aren’t the best and the brightest. They succeeded (if you wish to call it that) by sucking up to whomever they could, positioning themselves as the perennial Yesmen to whatever power structure they encountered.

Today, the lack of real creativity in this overstuffed field is evidenced by some rather stupid propaganda and stunt retreads being peddled out there as attempts to force regime change on several nations with the audacity to refuse to take part in our neoliberal for-profit central banking pyramid scheme known as “globalization”

Here’s a brief rundown:

Spanish Townsfolk, Our Monster: Now What Are We Going to Do About It?

by Scott Creighton

UPDATE 3:The French, Spanish and Greek governments all announced multibillion-euro austerity plans yesterday in the face of massive popular opposition.”

UPDATE 2: Slavery in the UK. The unemployed are being forced to work for major British corporations, for free, just so they can continue to receive their unemployment benefits. This plan is the same as one attempted here in the states, one that still has a great deal of support in congress. Imagine the profits retailers could pocket if they got free seasonal workers during the holiday buying season.

UPDATE: In Dubai, one of our close economic allies, they call slave owners “sponsors” and fine their slaves if they attempt to take their own lives when the desperation of their true situation becomes too unbearable to live with.

I found myself thrown away and I thought of my poor family back home. I felt desperate and decided I should die,” she said. The National

———

While Americans cheer for the return of  zebra striped officials to the NFL games today, the Spanish, the Greeks and many others across Europe are fighting for their very lives and the freedom to determine the quality of them on their own. Our apparent lack of concern is understandable when you consider that what they are desperately struggling against is in a large part, our creation. Not only is Dr. Frankenstein disinterested in the harm his creation inflicts on the people around him by choice, but the townsfolk themselves willingly turn a blind eye and a deaf ear to the cries of their neighbors in nearby villages just so long as the monster feeds elsewhere.

Press TV Reporter Murdered by Hillary’s Heroes in Damascus

by Scott Creighton

A Press TV reporter was shot and killed by a “rebel” sniper in Syria today. 33 year old Maya Naser and Al-Alam Damascus Bureau Chief Hosein Mortada were covering yesterday’s twin bombing attacks when they came under fire from the NATO backed “professional jihadists”. Mortada was wounded in the leg.

Maya was one of Press TV’s English language news correspondents. Looks like someone wished to reduce Press TV’s accessibility to their growing American audience.

Press TV’s newsroom director had this public statement about the murder;

Rudy and the Terrorists: The MEK Terrorists Take Over Camp Liberty

by Scott Creighton

Terrorists rule America. They serve other terrorists. They employ other terrorists. They conspire and “plot and plan” with other terrorists. They betray other terrorists and they worship other terrorists. They use other terrorists to fulfill their terrorist agendas. They covet what some terrorists have while they lust for the same things that other terrorists want. Terrorists rule America. By deception they make war. By complicity they make allies. By terror they profit.

Israel’s Iranian Solution: “Iran’s citizens should be starved” Israeli Officials Say

by Scott Creighton

Just ahead of the Parliamentary Elections in Iran, Israel is once again stepping up their terrorist rhetoric in order to send another frightening message to the people of that sovereign nation.

Israeli officials have openly called for a starvation campaign against the civilian population of Iran in order to stop them from building a nuclear weapon which they are not building. Muslims, Christians, Jews and everyone else should suffer and starve to death to protect Israel from non-existent WMDs.

Not only would the application of such a program be considered a terrorist act (and one which brings to mind a certain dark chapter in 20th century fascist horror) but the threat itself is itself an act of terrorism.

As expected, the corporatist media is silent on the obvious irony of such a horrific statement coming from the leaders of the self proclaimed “Jewish State”. This is Israel’s Iranian Solution.

Iran Targets Weakest of EU Members (PIIGS) with their Counter Sanctions Plan in Order to Threaten Entire European Union

by Scott Creighton

Press TV has announced that Iran is going to cut oil supplies to 6 of the EU nations that voted to support the US/British oil and banking sanctions imposed on Iran last month including Netherlands, Spain, Italy, France, Greece and Portugal. Notice something interesting there? The countries are mainly the nations designated as the “PIIGS” countries that the EU and European Central Bank so called them due to their poor economic standing after the bank-made global economic crisis of 2008: Portugal, Ireland, Italy, Greece, and Spain (PIIGS). Only Ireland has been left off that list of countries who will feel the brunt of Iran’s counter sanction proposal.

This announcement has been made prior to Iran’s parliament’s approval of the bill enacting this counter sanction into law, but few would anticipate the defeat of such a measure.

Is it a coincidence that the weakest of the EU nations and two of the leading globalist movers and shakers are being targeted by the Iranian plan? Of course not. The obvious threat here is to seriously weaken the economies of these 4 troubled nations and in so doing, blow the EU completely apart. Everyone understands that Greece alone nearly brought the EU to a crippled end and now, with Greece and the three other weakest economies in the cross hairs, it would seem that Iran’s plan to combat the dishonest sanction campaign is to target them where they are weakest and thus topple the EU in the process.

Lyin Joe Lieberman: Praises “Brave Syrian Freedom Fighters” and Calls for a new “Coalition of the Willing”

by Scott Creighton

UPDATE: CNN promotes Lyin Joe Lieberman and a brand new “Gay Girl in Damascus” psyop!  Now they got “Syrian Danny” who is a British citizen pleading for a NATO bombing in Syria. This guy says the only thing that can save the country he does not live in is for the United States or Israel to bomb the shit out of them like we did in Libya. How brave of him sitting in London somewhere to ask NATO to blow up Syria.

Syrian Danny” – Syria

Gay Girl in Damascus” – Syria

Eman al-Obeidy” – Libya

“Neda” – Iran

“Nurse Nayirah” – Iraq

Jessica Lynch story – Iraq

The war-mongering Israel-firster and delusional liar Joe Lieberman is at it again. He’s spewing already debunked lies and even drudging up the old “freedom fighters” rhetoric from the Reagan days in support of arming the terrorists who are killing Syrian soldiers, police officers, government officials, and civilians in order to destabilize the country and hand it over to globalist technocrats so they can chop it up and hand it over to various multinational corporations. He even calls for another “coalition of the willing” to try to circumvent the Russian and “Iranian” vetoes of the UN resolution.

don’t let the delusional liar door hit you in the delusional liar butt on the way out.”  “goodbye, Joe Lieberman, and good riddance.” Keith Olbermann

LA protesters slam war threats against Iran

Neo-liberal Destabilization Plan for Syria Continues: How long till we are on that “Seven Countries” list?

by Scott Creighton

UPDATE: Russia opposes ‘Libyan scenario’ in Syria and will block resolution

Syrian government accepted Russian brokered peace talks with opposition

The Syrian “rebels/activists” rejected a Russian brokered peace talks

The Syrian “rebels/activists” sabotage state run natural gas pipeline and murdered a doctor

——

So, I came back to see him (in the Pentagon) a few weeks later (October of 2001) and by that time we were bombing in Afghanistan and I said “Are we still going to war with Iraq?” and he said “It’s worse than that.” He said.. he reached over on his desk and he picked up a piece of paper and he said “I just got this down from upstairs today..” meaning the Secretary of Defense’s office… and he said “this is a memo that describes how we are going to take out 7 countries in 5 years.. starting with Iraq, then Syria, Lebanon, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, and finishing off Iran.Gen. Westley Clark

When every single MSM “news” outlet is on the same page, reporting “activist said” unsubstantiated propaganda pertaining to Libya, Somalia and Syria as unquestionable fact, the current administration is free to do whatever they want with no fear of reprisal from their so-called “progressive” supporters. That means the Obama administration of “CHANGE” is able to openly continue yet another horrendous and illegal policy of the Bush administration, the neoliberalization of several state centered nations, unencumbered by the inherent restrictions of democracy ie the “will of the people” who would never support premeditated invasions and occupations of other nations for the express interests of multinational corporations and financial institutions.

Just as the complicit corporatist media assisted the Bush regime in manufacturing consent for the illegal invasion of Iraq, they are doing the exact same thing now under the Obama administration as they openly continue to fulfill the “7 countries in 5 years” agenda set so long ago.

Beyond Pretense: The Global Free Market Wars Finally Acknowledged (and another U.S.S. Liberty event on the horizon?)

by Scott Creighton

UPDATE: After all attempts to frame Iran have failed thus far, a Jerusalem Post article (written by a former Israeli intelligence officer turned Operation Mockingbird style “journalist“) suggests Iran will provide the needed pretext for the war themselves by attacking a U.S. warship. Get that? They failed to frame Iran for everything from rigged elections to 9/11 and now, out of the blue, they expect Iran will make the unusually stupid move of attacking a U.S. warship and setting themselves up for regime change and perhaps a million dead Iranians in the process.

A Prison Planet article about this frightening prediction mentions Gulf of Tonkin and the USS Maine false flag attacks but for some reason never mentions the prolonged Israeli attack on the U.S.S. Liberty (see details at the end of this article) which looked to pull us into their conflict with Egypt until a Russian sub was spotted nearby watching the hours long attack and the Liberty simply refused to sink. Go figure.

UPDATE 2: Chris Mathews covered the Israeli assassination of the Iranian nuclear scientist yesterday. You might think that is good, but it is not because of HOW they covered it; they are setting up a narrative explaining WHY the Iranians would launch a military attack of some kind against the U.S. Navy. And that is EXACTLY the same thing the Jerusalem Post wrote about the other day.

The story line according the Hardball goes something like this:

  • The Obama administration doesn’t want a conflict with Iran (even though it’s obvious that they do want a regime change in Iran)
  • The new sanctions on Iran are making them desperate (even though South Korea, China, North Korea, Venezuela, Russia, Pakistan, India and others are not going to abide by them, and neither is Halliburton for that matter)
  • The Israeli attack on a nuclear scientist is going to prompt Iran to attack the U.S. (even though they know it was not the U.S. that killed their scientist and even though there are Israeli ships in the Gulf as well as U.S. ships)
  • There are mentions of Iran firing a missile at a U.S. warship or mining the Straight of Hormuz (does that remind anyone of the Cheonan incident, or is it just me?)
  • Israel will then “help” the United States and be the good guys by striking back at Iran.

Mathews and Hardball are not helping us by exposing the underlying truth in this situation but rather they are laying the groundwork for the official narrative of another false flag attack even before it plays out. The Iranians would never launch an attack on a US warship because Israel killed another of their scientists. That premise is ludicrous at best. And yet, there it is.

UPDATE 3: British Prime Minister has gone to meet with the Saudi Royal family just days after the Saudi ruling regime killed protesters and hours after the British issue a warning to their citizens about traveling to that region due to “conflicts” escalating.

UPDATE 4: According to the complicit MSM, an “independent news service” known as irannuc.ir is claiming that the Iranian people buried the nuclear scientist chanting “death to the US. death to Israel” and they claim that Iran (quoting unnamed sources) is planning an attack against the West in retaliation. Of course the only videos of the burial show mourners saying “death to the terrorists”

It appears the “independent news service” (read as US financed destabilization campaign NGO) is helping to push the “Iran is going to attack” narrative.

This irannuc propaganda is already on Fox News and MSN alike.

For years I have been using the phrase “The Global Free Market Wars” to explain what is happening around the world. I didn’t coin the phrase, I don’t know who did, I wish I had. The pretense is coming to a end.  The Global War on Terror is and has been since it’s inception, a fraud. A lie. 935 lies for Iraq; 1 Big Lie for Afghanistan (built on literally tons of smaller lies); NGO lies for Libya; a Fox News generated lie for Pakistan; a retroactive lie for Yemen; a lie of omission for Sudan; an opportunistic lie for North Korea; and finally, a string of lies for Iran.

Faking It: How the Media Manipulates the World into War

Advocates of War With Iran Take Some Media Hits

by Sherwood Ross, BlacklistedNews

Advocates of a hot war with Iran have just taken some heavy hits from a Harvard professor of international relations and two prominent journalists.

Harvard’s Professor Stephen Walt has savaged an article in the forthcoming “Foreign Affairs” magazine(Jan.-Feb.)  by Matthew Kroenig titled, “Time to Attack Iran: Why a Strike Is the Least Bad Option.” Kroenig is an Assistant Professor of Government at Georgetown University who wrote:

“The truth is that a military strike intended to destroy Iran’s nuclear program, if managed carefully, could spare the region and the world a very real threat and dramatically improve the long-term national security of the United States.”

Calling this “a remarkably poor piece of advocacy,” Harvard’s Walt writes that Kroenig “makes the case for war by assuming everything will go south if the U.S. does not attack and that everything will go swimmingly if it does. This is not fair-minded ‘analysis’; it is simply a brief for war designed to reach a predetermined conclusion,” Walt writes of the “Foreign Affairs” piece.
