Gods of War

Posted: April 17, 2017 in Uncategorized

In a complete shift from his election campaign, President Trump became warmonger on the style of its predecessor (US has been at war for 93% of time since foundation).

Attacks on Syria, Afghanistan and potentially North Korea. An a shift in strategy with boots on ground in Syria and Iraq.

How did this happen?

It all started with the dismissal of the security adviser Flynn and the nomination of Mattis and McMaster.

The US Deep State (industrial- military complex) won over President Trump (or better say he had to bow down) and the USD600 billion dollar industry needs enemies and wars to feed itself.

So, it is all back to “war as usual”. But the stakes are higher than ever as the world is edging towards a maximum instability (even without Trump) as the power players are shifting (China increase power, resurgent Russia, imperialist Turkey, NATO woes, jihadism).

And the US is expanding bases around China and Russia as containment (if you wonder what would happen if Russia and China put bases around the US….look at the Cuban crisis).

And it you think this is an anti-US conspiracy, please look at the youtube President Eisenhower speech re the Deep State https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8y06NSBBRtY

And nothing happened to stop it (well President JFK tried).

Why this happens. A Chinese political analyst put it beautifully: The US (or West) is called a Capitalistic society as Capital dominates politics.

In China, in no way a group of billionaires could dominate the One Party.

China is far from the perfect example and a not a democracy, but he has a point.

So we have different non-democratic powers.

King Putin and Russia.

Plutocratic West.

One Party China.

Sultan-style Turkey, Saudi Arabia and Iran.

maybe the closest thing to democracy is the good old UK.
