Obama’s Sec. of Defense Begs Congress for More War EVERYWHERE – Rise of the “fucking crazies”

“the truth is, we are at war.” Ash Carter

Every day our “moderate” terrorists lob US-made mortar rounds into civilian areas in Syria in an attempt to further destabilize the population and force them from their homes, villages and cities. Two days ago, 4 civilians were killed in just such an attack. You wont find that news on CNN, ThinkProgress or Prison Planet for that matter.

Three days ago, a major leader of our “moderate” brigades in Syria put out a call to the so-called Free Syrian Army to exterminate the large Alawite population in the country.

“Exterminating Nusayri (derogatory term that is directed towards Alawites) villages is more important than liberating the Syrian capital,” Abdullah Al-‘Ali

The day before that, the US-led coalition bombed more civilian infrastructure in Syria, killing 34 innocent people in Al-Khan.

And just before that, the US was specifically condemned for targeting a Syrian Arab Army base (not ISIS™) in Deir Ezzor which killed 3 soldiers and wounded 13 others (who were engaged in fighting ISIS™). US spokesman said US planes were in the area but not over the base. He failed to mention the fact that two pairs of coalition aircraft that were not US planes, did indeed fly over the base. During coalition airstrikes, all targets are determined by the Pentagon and relayed to the various nation’s fighters.

Is it the truth that we are at war or have the “fucking crazies” finally won?

This week, Secretary of Defense Ashton Carter, went before the Senate Armed Services committee to do what he does best: beg for more war.

The senators stumbled over themselves to give voice to their breathless support of the increased militarism in this, the age of President Peace Prize.

“We all agree that the intensity [of the ISIS war] has to be increased significantly and rapidly,” Senator Jack Reed, the ranking Democrat on the armed services panel, noted during his opening statement. Reed vowed to ensure that the Pentagon would receive everything “that the department needs” to expand the fight against ISIS further afield.

Proposals for no-fly zones above Syria, militarized “safe zones” on the ground, stepped up covert operations by US commandos, focused on targeted killings and the mobilization of ethnic death squads and proxy militias, found universal support among the assembled senators and military leaders.” Thomas Gaist

Using all the latest false flag events as his justification, Sen. John McCain, head of the committee, put a finer point on it:

McCain called for the US military to lead a large invasion force, backed by tens of thousands of troops drawn from allied governments and local forces, in a drive to seize control of the ISIS-held city of Raqqa and broader areas of northern Syria.

The ground campaign should be followed by a “long-term stabilization effort” based on a US “residual force,” McCain said. Thomas Gaist

Yes, he wants to go ahead and cut through all the pretense and simply invade Syria and bust off a piece of northeastern Syria and give it to the Kurds for the Greater Kurdistan project. What he was calling for in public, in our senate, is nothing short of a war crime, a war of aggression.

No one ever said John was subtle. Apparently he’s not very smart either.

Let’s be perfectly clear: we have no legal right to be in Syria fighting anyone. No international authority. No authority from the Syrians. No domestic authority. That is why Obama went before the American people on Sunday begging them to get behind forcing congress to pass  a new authorization for the use of military force bill. What we are doing is illegally invading and occupying a democratic nation on behalf of the “national interests” both parties in D.C. serve. It has nothing to do with Paris, nothing to do with that Russian plane and it damn sure has nothing to do with San Bernardino.

In other news from the all-out imperialist front, the New York Times ran with a story this morning about the Pentagon seeking a “string” of new military bases throughout the Middle East and Africa. The bases will be staffed by Special Ops guys running teams of destabilization terrorists, death squads and assassins in many countries.

… the network of bases would serve as hubs for Special Operations troops and intelligence operatives who would conduct counterterrorism missions for the foreseeable future. The plan would all but ensure what Pentagon officials call an “enduring” American military presence in some of the world’s most volatile regions…

… “These will enable unilateral crisis response, counterterror operations, or strikes on high-value targets.”..

… “These threats are difficult to confine to one place,” he said, adding that was why the United States needed to strike at the Islamic State not only in Iraq and Syria but also in “other places where it is.New York Times

This news just happens to coincide with another report that came out the other day:

“US experts are reconstructing and equipping a desolate airport special to carrying agricultural products in the region controlled by the Kurdish forces in Hasaka region, Northeastern Syria, to turn it into a military base.” Global Research

It is certainly not inconceivable as the Pentagon is steadily building new bases across the Middle East, that they would decide to build one in a Kurdish controlled region in Syria, the same region John McCain was suggesting we invade and occupy for the long term. In terms of legality, if true, this is nothing short of a blatant act of war and it certainly makes President Obama guilty of the most egregious war crime, perpetrating a war of aggression.

It would appear to me the warmongers in this country have gone ballistic. When they saw the Russians enter the fray in Syria at the request of the legitimate Syrian government and so many of the coalition partners withdraw to the slaughter in Yemen, they panicked. Their dreams of Greater Kurdistan were bound for the rocky shores and there was nothing they could do to stop it.

Nothing except for more war.

Decades ago a president rejected the demands of the military class when he refused to send air support to the Bay of Pigs and the militarist’s terrorists were slaughtered and arrested and Cuba remained a sovereign state. Ultimately he paid with his life for that decision.

As we now know, Castro had nuclear weapons targeting major US cities and both the launch codes and the will to use them. That little regime change operation on behalf of our “national interests” would have led to WWIII and a full on nuclear exchange had Kennedy not decided to forego the directives of the military war mongers, the “fucking crazies” of his time. It is a particularly relevant lesson from history which we would be wise to remember as things unfold in Syria.

Today, we have Obama who likes to fashion himself after that previous president while he possesses none of his traits. None of his convictions. None of his strengths. And apparently none of his foresight.

Obama sits back and lets his war mongering military leadership steer the course of his foreign policy. Libya, Egypt, Yemen, Syria, Niger… there isn’t a small, weaker nation who’s resources they don’t covet and who’s military they fear. Yet, kinda like Cuba, sometimes it’s the “unknown unknowns” that end up biting you on the ass.

The other day, Obama let his Secretary of Defense go before congress and beg for more war everywhere.

In spite of Obama’s promise of “change”, the “fucking crazies” are running the asylum and there is simply no other way to look at it.

Please help keep us up and running if you can.

  1. Can’t they hear the children crying
    and other songs of war

    the fucking crazies

  2. “Every gun that is made, every warship launched, every rocket fired signifies, in the final sense, a theft from those who hunger and are not fed, those who are cold and are not clothed.”

    –Dwight D. Eisenhower

  3. Not sure what “ … a desolate airport special … ” is but I’ll bet you Monsanto is all for it.

  4. Scott, I agree with the overall thrust of this article. I would only qualify it with this: the military-industrial-financial-propaganda complex is comprised of the crazies who actually run and own the U.S. The President and all elected officials are merely window dressing to confuse the public about where it should focus its animus, to delude it into believing that by worrying over and casting ballots it can (somewhat effectively) translate its collective will into government policy, which in fact it can’t.

    Kennedy made the mistake of believing that he was more than a mere figurehead, that he had more power than he did, that he could defy the crazies. He paid the price. As will anyone who becomes too much of an obstacle to the designs of the fucking crazies who actually control the military, finance, and all other bureaucratic institutions, whether private or public.

  5. The first stop on my pre-dawn, post-Social Security, subsistence-level paying route is Milford. ‘Milford’. The sound of that word takes me back in time, back to the iceman and his horse drawn wagon, back to carpenters in bibs, measuring with a folding rule, cutting with a hand saw, back to soldiers fighting with hand operated, bolt action rifles, and bayonets.

    My grandpa used to gather us kids around and tell us stories he’d heard or made up about the ‘settling’ of the west, back when the radio was clogged with static. I can still smell his sweat from his day as a section hand on the B&O railroad.

    Our son has had to rob Peter to pay Paul every working day of his life.

    Last night, halftime of the Vikes/Cards game, I saw fat John McCain yucking it up with somebody—the fucking crazy

    • I saw a Vietnam vet at the wall in DC recently who took shrapnel, was shot in the stomach and lost a thumb. He was lucid, knew the back stories of a huge number of people on the wall, and didn’t ask for money. He wants people to write their congressmen to remind them how many homeless vet there are because the VA keeps losing their paperwork and won’t pay them their guaranteed benefits. This man has been homeless for 16 months. Didn’t ask for any money.

      • A comment I made yesterday was meant for you, but it didn’t show up under yours as a reply. It’s still down here somewhere.

        Maybe this one will reach the right place

  6. Besides being a racket, it’s a perfect way to mes up a young life for ever, for those who live through it.

    I wish the guy luck in his quest.

    Maybe your writing about him here will have an impact, touch some who can’t get to DC, to that wall.

    Thanks for your reply

    • The above was meant for Stanley. Must have missed with the click

    • Thanks Roy. Perhaps just spreading thoughts amongst more people who care about them increases the chance that something positive could happen. I guess that’s why ideas are seen as the most dangerous weapons in the long term.
