Financial Warfare and the Failure of US Military Leadership

Politics / US Politics Oct 04, 2010 - 09:17 AM GMT

Politics

Damon Vrabel writes: The "War on Terror" has become the most successful military diversion in history, having lasted twice as long as WWII so far. While the US and other countries are under severe attack by financial powers through the corporate system and the currency and bond markets, the US military is convinced that people living in remote deserts are the threat. So they’re busy killing some of the poorest people in the world while the country is being attacked by the richest. On the one hand, this is a more impressive Machiavellian chess move than the Calais diversion in WWII that opened up the Normandy attack that would seal Germany’s fate. On the other, it’s just embarrassing to see how easily millions of grown adults can be fooled in the face of the obvious.


What’s obvious? Debt

Germany’s foreign debt which led to WWII and its eventual death: $31.4 billion ($400 billion in 2010 dollars).

US’ foreign debt which could lead to WWIII and its eventual death: $4 trillion.

While necessary in WWII to destroy Germany’s productive core, a military component to WWIII though possible is not necessary since the US’ productive core has already been destroyed.

The United States has a foreign debt obligation exponentially larger than Germany’s, which was universally recognized as extreme and unpayable. So what adjectives should be used to describe the US’ debt? Everyone also recognizes that Germany’s debt led to its dictatorship, which in turn led to WWII and its eventual foreclosure by foreign powers to collect for the creditors and force it under a new central banking establishment. So what future is the US moving toward?

As John Adams warned long ago, debt is a great way to enslave countries.

Maintaining Clarity

Knowing it was under attack but unclear of the real enemy, the German population was stirred into a paranoid fear of itself, its Jewish members in particular. The same thing is happening in the US as the left vs. right civil war has never been so extreme. And the corporate class, who in 08/09 received the biggest welfare program in history, is now blaming unions and the lower class for the pennies in welfare they receive. The media is also stoking the Christian vs. Muslim fight to keep the masses distracted. And now there are glimpses of a movement to stir opinion against the Jews – the scapegoat the multi-national banking elite has always hidden behind.

The answer is very simple. Thomas Jefferson explained it over 200 years ago. The problem is not Muslims, Jews, unions, the left, or the right. That’s all a distraction. The problem is the aristocracy controlling and restructuring the masses through banks, corporations, and other financial institutions. Jefferson said they’re more dangerous than standing armies. To bring his accurate metaphor up to date, big armies like JPM Chase, Goldman Sachs, and the IMF fight the main battle, hedge funds like Soros stand ready to run bombing raids, and the Banks of China and Japan control the WMDs. The US is getting a taste of the neoliberalism it has forced on other countries for decades, and if it steps out of line, a financial version of payback for Hiroshima may be on the horizon.

Message to my old military colleagues: the US has been blatantly attacked by the most powerful weapon in history – leveraged finance – and rather than defending the country, you’re exacerbating it by killing poor people in deserts for the military-industrial-CIA complex to bring them under the rule of the global banking system and secure their resources. Despite the propaganda, there is no honor in being an assassin for corporate empire. Prove Kissinger wrong, the guy who according to Bob Woodward called you "stupid animals" to be used as pawns. This is what civilian strategists think of you, so stop being suckered by them into killing the weak on the orders of the strong.

You must think critically and wake up to the real threat facing the US. The old "we just do what we’re told" mentality doesn’t fly anymore as you carry out unconstitutional, immoral orders based on fake intelligence. All your civilian leaders are compromised and co-opted by their membership in the CFR – the rich kid Wall Street club fueling the globalized empire. So are the top generals and a few dweeb colonels from places like Princeton’s Woodrow Wilson School who get a rush out of planning empire. They violate their oaths daily simply by being members of this group. So you in turn violate your oaths by carrying out their orders.

Stop participating in the efforts that are bringing this country, and much of the world, to its knees. Being a mercenary for corporate powers is not honorable – it’s disgraceful. Stand down. Then focus on the real threat and help the people restore the country while saving the rest of the world from the raging last gasps of a dying empire.
