The thing is, that the war on the American people is not just about the police, or the armed forces. The war on the American people, begins and ends
with the American government, and the parts of it that you are not allowed to know enough about, to protect yourself from. Its the same way here in
We in the west like to tell other countries and regions how to run their affairs, because it makes our leaders look noble and decent in comparison.
What they never admit openly, and refuse to comment on in the slightest way, is that it is western nations trading arms with nations in conflict
zones, and western intelligence agencies making money from drug profits and smuggling routes, for their black project funds, that puts the people and
their liberty and freedom in the greatest danger.
Our governments operate proxy armies in the form of the religious fundamentalist terror groups, and narco-cartels, and have been for decades, a point
which is made and ignored every time it comes up, because, like any problem worth solving, its simply too complicated for most people to want to deal
with. People want scapegoats and easy, quick fixes. The people who believe a hardened border with Mexico will stop drugs and guns from being massive
problems in the states, that the hard border will stop illegal immigration, that it will cut the power to the gangs dealing narcotics in America, are
fooling themselves because its easier to accept a comforting falsehood, than entertain a harrowing reality.
The reality is that the US government is responsible for the problems in America, and only changes in its structure, behaviour and power to affect
the lives of citizens, will ever solve the issues inherent in life in that country. For a start, Americas government needs to purge its intelligence
agencies, of all parties who are in any small way responsible for liaising with "assets" south of the Mexico/US border, because it is these agents and
their masters, who organise the safe passage of drugs and guns, human cargo for trafficking purposes, and the like. They also need to purge the people
who have been running the proxy war in the Middle East and North Africa, who were in control of assets like Osama Bin Laden until his apparent death,
and indeed the current iteration of the fundamentalist proxy army, ISIS as well as others.
We know full well by this point, that the wars in the Middle East were about PROFIT not justice, not righteousness, or wanting to do the right
thing. That is simply a fact, one which cannot be avoided without deliberate attempts on the part of individuals, to ignore the overwhelming evidence
which has built up over the years. We know also that the American government has a decades old history of powerbrokering south of the US/Mexico
border, a history which includes its own agents being directly responsible for assassinations of leaders, bombing of aircraft, and the setting up of
narco-terror groups which, to this day, are operating in a manner which undermines any socialist or even slightly less capitalist nation that they are
pointed at by the US government. Between that, and the economic hitmen whose operations are designed to undermine the economies of nations which do
not toe the line that America likes to scribe in the dirt at its feet, there is no place to lay blame for ANY of the effects of what goes on south of
the border, other than the government of the United States, and the offices of its intelligence agencies.
The war on the American people is directed by the same forces. They want their military spending to be obscene, but ineffectual, so that despite all
the money spent, there are still supply and demand problems when it comes to procurement, still staffing issues in key areas, still trouble with
getting enough ships on the water and planes in the air, so that next budget season, the military can bleat to the executive branch about how poor it
is. You note, that in a similar fashion to the PARLOUS state of the American healthcare system, from an outcomes perspective, an awful lot of money
goes in, for relatively little quality of product coming out. Sure, certain parts of those systems work really well, but for that money, EVERY part of
that system should be gold edged and operating with mechanical precision, and it doesn't, not the healthcare that costs way over the odds, or the
severely over inflated spending on the military which has only minimal effect or capacity to improve the situation. Why? Because the effectiveness of
those financial injections is deliberately minimised, in order to justify more and more spending, spending which winds up filling private pockets,
RATHER than achieving aims which render patients or servicepersons in better stead than they were.
Its all a massive con, and the thing is that a component of the war on American people, is tricking them into accepting war against everyone or
anyone else, war that is for profit, not morally or ethically acceptable, but simply lucrative for a small few. Its a massive part of it. The war on
drugs is even more lucrative, because those pulling the strings of those selling the drugs, are those selling the guns that are used to fight the
narco gangs, the guns the narco gangs use to fight the police, and therefore the puppet masters in the intelligence agencies and private military
groups, earn THRICE from it. The drugs, the guns, the guns again.
In the meantime, they are responsible for millions of deaths all over the world, from terrorism they sponsored and fostered and nurtured, to the
drugs they helped smuggle, and the violence played out to distract the worlds population from discovering the real culprits, and all the while, the
propagandists, fascists and other walking detritus, spend as much time blaming the victims of western interference for their troubles as is physically
Again I say, my nation is responsible for these things too, although much less on the drugs front, oddly enough given its history. No, we sell arms
to anyone and everyone, and helped the US fund and create the fundamentalist groups who have dominated the news for ages, I am in no doubt or
confusion over that. But the trouble here is that me being aware of these things is par for the course. I am a socialist, living in a nation run by
people who are not like unto the people living in this country, by that, I mean people who are not skint and tired of being used. So of course, I am
prepared to be told that my government is toxic to the world, and accept the harder reality, rather than bowing under the pressure to believe the
And if you want an example of a comfortable lie, you can deal with the heading of your own thread. The war against the American people, is a lie. Its
Americas war against everything else that is the problem, and leads to organisations having the power to harm American people in the first place. Stop
the wars, the money dries up and the power evaporates.
