I don't know where to put this, but it's sort of a prediction/observation. I figure I will run with it, and if it's in the wrong place please mods
feel free to move it, and I apologize for the inconvenience.
So It seems, for many years the USA has played world police, and done as much internal propaganda as possible to keep it's people feeling they only
ever go to war, to protect the freedom of it's civilians or it's allies. How ever, The US also seems to take great pleasure in bringing " freedom " to
those it deems in need.
For instance each time the US has gone to Iraq for instance it has been for the greater good of the United States as well as The world. A huge part of
the US campaign in Iraq boasted the ideology of bringing freedom and peace to the Iraqi people. I'm not trying to say it was the only reason, nor do I
feel the US had any right to decide what freedom was for Iraq, but with the way things are playing out in The US I can't help but see some
similarities to many campaigns the US has so proudly been involved with. It seems every day more and more Americans are unhappy with their economy,
and those in power. I'm an outsider looking in, but the growing numbers of civilians who are claiming their government is biased and self serving
rather than serving the people is starting to sound rather similar to many of the so called Terrors they have gone to war to over throw. With the
protests showing public displays of disgusting police brutality, and watching both sides spew propaganda about the other I really can't help but start
to wonder which of the worlds other super powers isn't starting to brew their own " Operation Freedom. "
Now, I for one do not wish to see any country in war, not with each other nor with themselves, but it seems the tensions are certainly rising and it
just doesn't feel like anything is going to be done about it. It's been an endless loop of hollow promises and deceit since well... Ever. It seems the
people grow increasingly upset, and tensions continue to rise, and along comes elections and another savior comes along, only to become equally
disappointing and lack luster. As well more and more civilians are becoming aware of the fact, it doesn't matter who the president is the power
obviously lays somewhere else. It seems many are calling for a complete overhaul, and the rest are unhappy but unwilling to believe something can be
done about it.
I'm trying to outline the basics here but I just don't have the words. The bottom line is Americans are upset. They are upset with their leaders, and
they are upset with each other. It's only a matter of time before the people in charge say, screw you this is how it is openly for all to see. The
only difference is, the US doesn't realize the very same excuses they use to go to war with other countries could be used to go to war with them.
The US has spread terror all through out Afghanistan and Iraq, and although I don't see either of these countries Riling up their civilians and
launching an occupation on the US I really don't see why Russia, China, or even Iran couldn't. I mean, Take the OWS movements going on as we speak.
I'm not saying that I think the OWS is a good thing, or that I agree with anything they are about but an outsider can take a look at the Peaceful
protesters being mistreated by it's country. Now it doesn't take a genius to understand acting violently towards unarmed civilians who aren't really
doing anything other than causing a mild inconvenience is very wrong, and truly disgusting at times. The US has expressed great distaste towards the
Chinese, the Iraqis and the Egyptians for the way they have treated their civilians why they have protested. I also can't help but think of the
economic motives behind both the Iraq, and afghan campaigns. Oil and Opium are huge assets and will be for the modern world until a more valuable
alternative comes about. I know I'm rambling, but I haven't slept much and this is kind of what came to mind so I'm trying to get it out as it comes
The picture I'm so horribly finger painting with snot here is, what is stopping a power like China or Russia from pulling off an operation American
Freedom type scenario? It can not be their military, I really just don't see how it would be. Russia and China both out man the US, china by a truly
ridiculous amount. It can't be their military technology, because China is on the cutting edge and Russia always seems to surprise the world when they
least expect it. Personally I think it's a matter of time. Many will say China won't do it, because as far as everyone else is concerned China pretty
much owns the US with all the debt they have. Really, I think they are very slowly letting the US fall apart just a little bit more before they start
up with their campaign. It wouldn't take much to convince the chinese or russian public that they are doing it for the American people themselves.
That they need China's help. Seriously think about it. It's obvious people are upset, and I really don't understand why people don't think someone
else would use that as a perfect excuse to attack the US over. The more upset the people of the country are the less likely UN or the US's allies
would be to intervene. It's been the number two excuse for the US to attack any other country in every war they have been in.
Now, it's been said on many threads of ATS, as well as even on some alternative news websites and even mainstream news in some cases that there does
appear to be people simply out to " Pump up " the violence at events like OWS. There's always that one douchebag to throw the first stone, followed by
the first molotov. How do you know there aren't key people placed with in the US trying to promote complete and utter chaos so that someone can step
in and Stick it to the US once and for all. I have seen a few threads about Foreign cyber attacks on the US, as well as threads of " Anonymous "and
their shenanigans. Isn't it entirely possible that China is trying to get the US to erupt into civil war so they can come overthrow the government and
implant a more palatable system ? It doesn't have to be China, it could be Russia. Hell, is it any less ridiculous than the zionist 911 conspiracies?
Another important piece to this puzzle is the fact the US is currently occupying Iraq, and afghanistan. They just sent a bunch of marines to
Australia, and there is the ever looming threat of more war breaking out in the middle east. The US is eventually going to have it's forces spread out
in significant conflict in more than 2 foreign countries. I can't help but think of WW2 and Nazi Germany here. How far can the US spread it's forces
and still fend off a serious threat like China or Russia. Seriously...Things are really starting to get scary, and I really do hope and pray for you
all many nights.
Thanks for reading guys. Tell me what you think. I know it's a mess, but my mind is really actually kind of stunned at this very obvious possibility.
