We are America, the Exceptional Empire, Above All Law

Politics / US Politics Aug 04, 2014 - 10:56 AM GMT

By: Michael_T_Bucci

Politics

The USA does not rule the Universe. It does not rule the world. It certainly will never rule Russia and China. If America wishes to risk planetary destruction by waging a nuclear exchange to attempt any of the above, it will be stopped by other means. No country ever was, is, or ever will be above the laws of God and man.


Ignorance is Bliss

Few Americans understand how people of the world view their country, and few people outside of America view it with precision.

Currently, the American people are being prepared for possible war with Russia, a country that maintains the largest arsenal of nuclear weapons in the world [1]. Such a war could expand to include China and much of the Global South. Since February, Americans have been spoon fed distortion after distortion about Ukraine and now are force-fed grievous unproven allegations about Russia. By design, no voices today are heard in Washington or the media encouraging mediation, moderation or reason in our new-old cold war; no viewpoints are printed or aired other than ones codified by Washington and echoed with patent obsequious uniformity in the media. It is becoming 2003 again when another lie hatched by Washington - swallowed by a credulous West - took the nation into war against Iraq [2]. Nevertheless, notwithstanding arguments to the contrary, flags throughout America will begin flying proudly again; dissenters will be labeled unpatriotic, unAmerican, Russian sympathizers, maybe even "terrorists"; additional civil liberties and Constitutional guarantees will be stripped; the military-industrial complex will grow fatter still. The prospect of WW3 grows by the day and no one has bothered to calculate the results.

No one complains about war any longer. No one complains about tax dollars spent on war, only on monies spent to meet human needs and welfare. Even the days of protest are over. "Peaceniks" who once clamored against George Bush and Dick Cheney's illegal wars now coyly march with neocon war hawks in synchronous goosesteps with President Barack Obama, the untouchable.

Obama has unified the nation. . . toward war, if nothing else.

Lies Chasing Lies

The case presented to the American people against Russia was a "closed" one absent a shred of due process; absent a shred of evidence; absent one editorial that demanded proof of Washington's claims. The case presented to the American people about Ukraine was a historical fabrication of actual events. Not one editorial divulged the full truth.

Factually, members of far-right Svoboda and neo-fascist Right Sector parties [3] - cajoled by John McCain's promises and Victoria Nuland's cookies - played a critical role in overthrowing the democratically elected government of Viktor Yanukovych in a February 22 brutal and violent coup. In December 2013, as U.S. politicians, NGOs and covert operations were preparing Maidan protest leaders for "regime change", U.S. Assistant Secretary of State for Europe, Victoria Nuland, chimed, “Since the declaration of Ukrainian independence in 1991, the United States supported the Ukrainians in the development of democratic institutions and skills in promoting civil society and a good form of government . . . we have invested more than 5 billion dollars to help Ukraine to achieve these and other goals.” Nuland said the United States will continue to “promote Ukraine to the future it deserves."[4] This soon included foisting upon the country a violent coup by right-wing neo-fascists; ousting all Russian influence from government; turning Ukraine de facto "pro-Western" and into a subjugated vassal of the IMF.

(The prize of Ukraine advantages Western investors, fund managers and vulture capitalists as well as those politically connected individuals like Hunter Biden, the youngest son of Vice-President Joe Biden, who was appointed to the board of directors of Ukraine's largest private-gas producer, Burisma Holdings, in early May [5]. The White House saw no "conflict of interest".)

Putin "invaded" and "annexed" Crimea, according to media news writers. In lieu of conflicting reports most Americans believe it, even though the electorate in Crimea overwhelming voted to secede from Ukraine and join the Russian Federation. Washington claimed the election was rigged and didn't honor it. Of course, had America honored it this charge against Russia would be moot.

For the unlucky peoples of Eastern Ukraine - the "rebels" - their fate awaits either in staring into the face of NATO guns should Russia (the "aggressor") make any false move defending them, or being accepted into the Russian Federation at some later date.

Big Lies Hatch Bigger Lies

NATO, ABM and missile defense shields are encircling Russia [6]. The United States "is quietly deploying more troops to train special forces in former Soviet bloc states anxious about Moscow's intentions" (Reuters). Armies in countries once a part of the Soviet Union are being trained for ground invasions (Poland, Slovakia and the Baltic states of Estonia, Lithuania and Latvia and others). Hillary Clinton and Prince Charles agree that Vladimir Putin is Hitler, and all Western media cite Putin as the aggressor. The rebels are portrayed as agents and mercenaries of the Russians fighting against our friends of democracy in Kiev when in fact the rebels are fighting against the children and grandchildren of men who fought with Adolf Hitler and helped exterminate Ukraine Jews in World War II (members of far-right Svoboda and neo-fascist Right Sector parties) [3]. Lying about the true composition of Maidan - and having the lie broadcast as bona fide truth - takes us to the big lie of today: the immediate claim that Russia shot down Malaysian Air MH17, following to "pro-Russian rebels shot it down with Russian help". "Putin did it!" was the charge made by countless Washington politicians and media editors within mere hours after the tragedy. Everyone knows Washington and media placed hostile blame on Russia, but few recall days later the White House permitted US intelligence officials to tell reporters that there is no evidence of the Russian government’s involvement [7]. America's intel community confessed it had no proof of Russian involvement. Gladly for America, a silver-lining: accusing Vladimir Putin of downing MH17 served to bring Europe quickly to its senses to sign Level 3 sanctions against Russia. The U.S. can't have European allies be friends with its old-new sworn enemy Russia. America knows best for Europe.

We Are the Master

We are America, the exceptional empire. The world needs our leadership, say the president and congress. Our military is stationed in over 150 countries; even more when adding our trustworthy agents of regime change from CIA. Our military budget is greater than almost all other nations combined. No one complains about taxes spent on wars - the "holy grail" underpinning American exceptionalism, along with concentrated wealth.

Few Americans understand how people of the world view their country. Few know the number of wars and occupations conducted by America under President Obama alone. Few know of Mr. Obama's Tuesday morning assassination checklist. Few know the scope of illegal dragnet surveillance conducted domestically and internationally by NSA; few can identify the agency behind those initials. Few know the populations of Russia and China against their own. Few can find Kiev on the map. Few know the purpose and function of the Federal Reserve or American controlled institutions like the International Monetary Fund and World Bank.

Yet, America is provoking a hot war with Russia and preparing another against China in the name of the American people who show little resistance, little competence in judging leaders and national policy, little motivation to protect their rights and liberties. But Empire could finally dominate the world. It deserves to dominate, it feels, because it is the only exceptional, indispensable beacon on the hill.

Yet, such an Empire is labeled the most violent empire in history by some historians.
Yet, the world believes America is "the most significant threat to world peace" (Gallop poll across 68 countries in year 2013) [8].

Few Americans understand the world-at-large. Hence, few Americans understand that seismic transformations in the distribution of global power are underway leading to a multipolar globe. Can Empire survive? Should Empire survive?

The sun is setting in the West and rising in the East.
No amount of U.S.-NATO nuclear arsenals will change the rotation of this planet.

Few Americans understand that war against the world will bring nuclear exchanges; will threaten to bring World War 3; will threaten all life on this planet.

Few Americans understand that war against the world will bring ultimate and total defeat of Empire.

Because no Empire ever was, is, or ever will be above the laws of God and man.
