The Shadow Government wants us in a war against Iran. No telling how many of Israel’s chestnuts this will pull out of the fire or how many American boys will have to spill their blood. If it helps Israel, well then, it’s worth spilling American blood for–isn’t it? Some of those who read my recent article on the USS Liberty seem to feel that it is. The thought of asking Israel to fight its own battles when it has demonstrated that it is more than capable of doing so never seems to occur to them.
This perpetual idea of expecting the US to clean up the mess in the Middle East no matter who makes the mess is getting more disgusting.
So now someone has attacked an oil tanker in the Middle East and our Shadow Government oligarchs, Pompeo and Bolton, have rushed in where angels fear to tread and said it looks, naturally, like Iran did the dirty deed. What would Iran have had to gain by this? Well, they don’t tell us that. We aren’t supposed to be bright enough to even ask–just take their word for us and get the American boys ready to ship over there to fight for God knows what.
Columnist Caitlin Johnstone had some interesting comments about this on https:medium.com She noted that: “In a move that surprised exactly zero people, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo has wasted no time scrambling to blame Iran for damage done to two sea vessels in the Gulf of Oman on Thursday, citing exactly zero evidence.” I mean, who needs evidence? If the Shadow Government tells us what is supposed to have happened, isn’t that enough? As I’ve asked before–if you can’t trust your government, then who can you trust? Nobody ever answers that one.
Caitlin Johnstone noted: “Pompeo is a known liar, especially when it comes to Iran. Pompeo has a well-established history of circulating blatant lies about Iran and the behavior of the Iranian government, and he recently told an audience at Texas A & M University that when he was leading the CIA, ‘We lied, we cheated, we stole. We had entire training courses’.” And Johnstone noted that “The US empire is known to use lies and false flags to start wars.” Should you wonder where–how about the USS Maine in Havana, the Lusitania, Pearl Harbor, the Gulf of Tonkin, weapons of “mass destruction” in Iraq? And these are just for starters!
Johnstone observed that “The US-centralized power alliance has an extensive and well-documented history of advancing preexisting military agendas using lies, false flags and psyops to make targeted governments appear to be aggressors. This is such a well-established pattern that ‘Gulf of Tonkin’ briefly trended on Twitter after the Gulf of Oman incident. Any number of government agencies could have been involved from any number of the nations in this alliance, including the US, the UK, the KSA, the UAE, or Israel.”
Ms. Johnstone also observed that John Bolton has openly endorse lying to advance military agendas. Watching Bolton operate over the years, I have come to the conclusion that he never saw a war anywhere he didn’t love if he could find some way to get the United States involved in it. I think it’s what he lives for!
These people never stop to consider the tragedy they inflict on Americans who have to get involved in their agendas of Empire. Either that or they just don’t give a rip. After all, it’s our young folks that end up bleeding, not theirs!
So polish off your rifles, dust off your artillery pieces and get ready for a war with Iran, whether it’s really warranted or not makes no difference. They want it and so we’ll have it, and that’s all there is to it!
