Failure of War Party Foreign Policy

Politics / US Politics Jan 09, 2018 - 12:41 PM GMT

By: BATR

Politics

The continuous foreign policy failures of the entrenched establishment goes back well over a century. Notwithstanding, the missed opportunity with the collapse of the Soviet Communism has emboldened the war party of the American Empire to become the main existential threat not only to our own country, but to much of the rest of the world. The militarists who chant "Thank You for your Service" are actually committed to expand the Wounded Warrior dupes, who are expendable. The United States never learned the lessons of Viet Nam. Volunteering to fight in unnecessary foreign adventures has caused more gratuitous suffering than any improvised explosive device that blows off limbs.


The IED that is lost is equivalent to Intelligent Essential Defense. Each successive generation loses a greater degree of insight from the last when it comes to understanding the real reasons why the military complex follows orders from the foreign policy betrayers. These FP experts hate the essence of America, while they bolster a global empire that most of the world despises.

Greg Hunter features the analysis of the $21 Trillion Missing – U.S. Government a Criminal Enterprise – Catherine Austin Fitts. Former Assistant Secretary of Housing Catherine Austin Fitts has been widely published on this matter, but for the general public, few have ever heard of the enormous extent of the fraud committed by the war party.

"The new report was put together by Dr. Mark Skidmore at Michigan State University, and it is a detailed year-by-year study of DOD and HUD budgets between 1998 and 2015. The missing money is called “undocumentable adjustments,” but that may just be a polite name for theft, fraud and crime against “We the People.”  Fitts contends, “Here’s the critical issue because technology is leading us through tremendous change, and the people who get their hands on this technology and are able to subsidize the cost of capital are the ones that are going to win.  They have done that by basically hijacking the federal credit and using it to help centralize power under them.  So, we have to reverse that, and the Constitution is the tool to hold them accountable.  All their arguments just fall down when you realize they have just stolen an enormous amount of money from the federal government outside the law. . . . The U.S. Federal government doesn’t have information sovereignty, and it doesn’t have financial sovereignty.  So, we have to return it to that, and we have to keep that mechanism open long enough to get this money back.”

Seldom does the significance of this systematic theft register with an apathetic public. If a citizen outcry cannot be generated to stop the carnage, why would anyone think a national outrage would ignite over an amount of money that is virtually incomprehensible?

Year after year and decade after decade, the thrust of the foreign legions stationed around the globe just keeps the phony Pax Americana deployment growing. Those of us who were hopeful that a Donald Trump's foreign policy would actually reverse this permanent burden are gravely disappointed.

Ilana Mercer makes her usual insightful observation in HOW TRUMP NORMALIZED NEOCONSERVATISM.

"It’s quite acceptable, on the left and the pseudo-right, to casually quip about troops in Niger and Norway. “We have soldiers in Niger and Norway? Of course we do. We need them.”

With neoconservatism normalized, there is no debate, disagreement or daylight between our dangerously united political factions.

This is the gift President Trump has given mainstream neoconservatives – who now comfortably include neoliberals and all Conservatism Inc., with the exceptions of Pat Buchanan, Ann Coulter and Tucker Carlson".

For a more contumelious assessment, the incomparable non-interventionist, Mike Scheuer's letter to President Trump warns of impending disaster on the African Continent.

 "It is best that you get the easily solved problems of Ukraine, Iran,  Afghanistan, and Pakistan out of the way. Thereafter, Sir, prepare yourself to resist the intense pressure from Necons, Globalists, Israel-Firsters, Congress, the generals, and much of the media that will be loosed on you when the Islamists’ African campaign gathers pace and the usual war-mongering subjects in the United States slither out from under their rocks begin to clamor for a war to “liberate Africa”.

As you buckle on your armor for that fight, Mr. President, you should always remember, that non-interventionism is a concept dearly beloved by non-elite Americans, working men and women who see no reason to spend their taxes and children’s lives on always fractious foreigners who hate the United States but love its money. Tax cuts are swelling, Mr. President, but non-killed soldier-children are endlessly better. Those same people, Sir, also recall that you sold yourself to them as the champion of a non-interventionism, and can only believe that, to date, you have been close to an utter sham on that score. Words to the wise".

Even the most partisan Trump Nation supporter must face the reality that The Donald has buckled under to the swamp war monster.

All the reams of paper used for covering the ins and outs of specific foreign policy forecasting are not even fit to wrap fish in. If people were really serious about making the world safe for human life, they would not waste their time debating which sect is wearing a white hat for today and which tribe is the latest bandit to eviscerate by reaper remote control.

Those missing trillions fund black programs and slush stashes that keep the disgraceful expenditures running a war machine 24/7. Of course much of the high cost of palatial houses and exorbitant incomes that pay for the DC private gated lifestyle comes from the munitions used in the killing fields.

In this gilded cage of predatory extermination, the drone culture brags of having surgical precision that reduces collateral damage. Sheltering combatants from the up front and personal blood and guts of death is important to desensitize the public from the actual consequences of warfare. Substituting the skills at playing a video game does not make a warrior. Yet, the architects of the militarist machinery are every bit as much a war criminal as Albert Spears.

Foreign policy is always based upon a threat of force. Force can take an understructure of forms to achieve the intimidation required that can avoid or limit the actual destruction. The history of disinformation, deception and dirty tricks are not reserved exclusively to the intelligence community. For the supreme illusion, look no further than the foreign policy elites. At the offset, most diplomats and their administrative staffers seldom serve the true national security interests of our country.

There are no more blue blood establishment cronies than those who think of themselves as the shapers of global hegemony. What this collection of internationalists view as success, dooms America to another chapter of humiliation and danger. According to Paul Craig Roberts, Iran is the latest example.  

"Today Washington is again at work against the Iranian people. It is difficult to believe that any Iranian, after watching what Washington-organized protests have done to Honduras, Libya, Ukraine, and Syria, have attempted to do to Iran in 2009, and is attempting to do today to Venezuela, could possibly in good faith go out into the streets against their own government. Are these Iranian protesters utterly stupid or are they hired to commit treason against their country?"

Just maybe, American citizens should ask themselves do they truly believe their government is acting in their best interest and why are they NOT taking to the streets to hold the foreign policy cartel accountable for their un-American policies?

A legitimate foreign policy requires that our strategy for defense must protect ourselves from the globalist cabal that has effectively usurped our genuine national security. The speeches written by Stephen Miller for President Trump are inspiring. However, the reality of the general staff, charged to carry out a non-interventionist model from the global encampment deployments has been a miserable failure.

It seems that all those trillions in missing funds are still leaking from the pot of military expenditures or could it be that protecting the dope chain of supply far outweighs the actual protection of the homeland? If Tom Cruise cannot get the story of Barry Seals and Mena to gain traction, what chance is there for pop culture to take "American Made" foreign policy seriously?

Even more disappointing is the disappearance of any effective anti-war movement. Contrary to fashionable misnomer, opposing the militarization of foreign warfare is not the sole venue of the political left. The authors and former officials cited in this article are authentic patriots of paleo conservative or libertarian orientations.

Regretfully, President Trump is not listening to this sage advice. Waving the flag is not enough to be statesman. Allowing jingoists into positions of authority is suicidal. If one is compelled to fly the flag, display it upside down and express the distress that an internationalist foreign policy has brought upon our nation. NeoCons and NeoLibs are counterfeits of the same coin, bogus fiat policy.
