“Our boys were sent off to die with beautiful ideals painted in front of them. No one told them that dollars and cents were the real reason they were marching off to kill and die.” General Smedley Butler

Did you ever notice that the politicians that talk much of war are those who have never been to war.

Or have you noticed that those who are to serve “We the People” in Congress are so apt to send your men and women to fight unconstitutional wars, but for some reason or another it does not apply to their own (Matthew 23:3).

As a matter of fact, it has been said that the Vietnam War ended when the children of those who represented us were pulled up for the draft.

Furthermore, to add insult to injury, it seems that trees take precedent over human life.  When you go to Washington D.C., you see trees with fences around them that state “Tree protection: KEEP OUT! Do Not Enter.  The enclosed area is a tree root protection zone. Fence must remain closed at all times.”  They are simply protecting trees from the people (Romans 1:28).

What you do not see is the Vietnam Wall (my cousin was killed in Vietnam) 20 yards behind this sign.  Fifty-eight thousand, three hundred and eighteen were killed (Amos 4:10).

With the last 100 years of exposing the corruption of the American politician, you would think that Americans would understand that they CANNOT trust the Judases who they are led to believe actually work for the people of this country (Luke 22:48).  Especially, when it comes to war.

In contrast, how was it that during the Revolutionary War, the Forefathers thought it their duty to fight the wars in which they believed were worth fighting, which established our Constitutional Republic.

It was said of George Washington, “First in war, first in peace and first in the hearts of his countrymen.”

Why first in the hearts of his countrymen? Because he led by example.  He did not expect others to take his place for such a worthy cause.

Remember, there is The Lord’s Wars and that of man’s wars. One is righteous and the other is not (Numbers 21:14).

A post recently popped up that will make the next point,

“Before complaining about the fact the American government is involved with another campaign to plunder another country that does not go along with the plans of the new world order.

 You would not have to worry about other countries hating you if you stopped corrupt politicians from inciting America to attack their countries.

Bombing other countries, Launching coups, installing expendable puppet dictators only to send in American forces to establish a military presence.”

Another one read,

“In today’s distorted media landscape, when the U.S. Government calls another nation’s leader a dictator, what they really mean to say is that they’re not a complete pro-USA puppet.”

Just think of this, 94% of Americans do not believe the lying media, Congress has an 11% approval rating, and yet, when they are told what some drummed up foreign country is going to do to us, the people somehow latch onto the fact that they are now telling them the truth. This is the pinnacle of hypocrisy (Romans 1:18).

Gen. Douglas MacArthur said of the United States government back in 1957:

“Our government has kept us in a perpetual state of fear – kept us in a continuous stampede of patriotic fervor – with the cry of grave national emergency. Always there has been some terrible evil at home or some monstrous foreign power that was going to gobble us up if we did not blindly rally behind it. …”

You would think that this is what America was told by the president on Sept. 11, 2001.  It was.

Of course, war is never sold to you in truth.  Remember, the truth is always the first casualty of war (John 8:44).

“By way of deception, thou shalt do war.” Mossad slogan

What of the military–industrial complex (MIC), which is an informal alliance between a nation’s military and the arms industry which supplies it, seen together as a vested interest which influences public policy.

A driving factor behind this relationship between the government and defense-minded corporations is that both sides benefit—one side from obtaining war weapons, and the other from being paid to supply them. The term is most often used in reference to the system behind the military of the United States, where it is most prevalent and gained popularity after its use in the farewell address of President Dwight D. Eisenhower on January 17, 1961. In 2011, the United States spent more (in absolute numbers) on its military than the next 13 nations combined.

I suggest that next time a war is being sold to the American people that those who are calling for the war, like our Forefathers, are the first ones to lead the way.

The people can always be brought to the bidding of the leaders. That is easy. All you have to do is tell them they are being attacked and denounce the pacifists for lack of patriotism and exposing the country to danger. It works the same way in any country. –Herman Goering

And to think that 222 years out of 241 years since 1776, Americans have been at war.

And Americans still haven’t figured this out.

Henry Kissinger said of our veterans:

“Military men are just dumb, stupid animals, to be used as pawns in foreign policy.”

The fact is, the American military are not dumb and stupid.   They just need to recognize who the enemies are, and that comes by knowing what the Law states (Hosea 4:6; 2 Timothy 2:15).

“I, _____, do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic.”

There are only two things we should fight for. One is the defense of our homes and the other is the Bill of Rights! -General Smedley Butler

So, the next time you hear the politicians clamoring for war, if it’s a worthy cause, they should be the first ones to go.

Trump Wants Funding for Iraq and Syria Bases

Trump Wants Funding for Iraq and Syria Bases | us-military-base | Military Sleuth Journal Trump War Propaganda World News

[image: theatlantic.com]

US combat forces came to both countries to stay – flagrantly illegal in Syria, likely approved by pro-Western puppet rule in Iraq, devastating for the people of both countries.

US Operation Inherent Resolve was established to support ISIS and other terrorist groups, not combat the former as claimed. According to its commander General Stephen Townsend:

“The Iraqi government has expressed an interest in having the US forces and coalition forces remain after the defeat of ISIS. Our government is equally interested in that.”

Bashar al-Assad calls US forces in Syria “invaders,” supporting death squads recruited from scores of nations, not combating them, he’s stressed. He, his government, and Syrian people want uninvited foreign forces out of the country.

Earlier, CENTCOM commander General Joseph Votel said US forces will remain in Syria after the battle for Raqqa is over – on the phony pretext of stabilizing the region.

Washington wants northern Syrian territory territory occupied, along with other areas it’s able to gain control over – a scheme risking direct confrontation with Russia and Damascus.

Trump wants congressional funding for US military bases in Iraq and Syria. On July 12, a White House policy statement on the FY 2018 National Defense Authorization Act expressed concern about lack of “additional requested authority for small-scale construction of temporary facilities that are necessary to meet operational needs and force protection requirements in both Iraq and Syria” – code language for intended US occupation of both countries.

Claiming funds are needed to continue combating ISIS conceals US support for all terrorists operating in both countries.

Endless wars in Iraq and Syria continue because of America’s presence and use of imported death squads as imperial foot soldiers.

Defense Secretary Mattis claiming Washington “wants to win the peace, stabilize the region and militarily pressure Iran” is false on points one and two, outrageously true on Iran.

Longstanding US policy, complicit with Israel, calls for regime change in Damascus and Tehran, pro-Western puppet rule replacing their legitimate governments.

All ongoing US wars reflect naked aggression against sovereign independent countries threatening no one. Iran is high on America’s target list.

Reportedly the Trump administration intends expanding US involvement in Libya, raped and destroyed by Obama and Hillary in 2011, the nation a cauldron of endless violence and chaos.

Greater US involvement would make already nightmarish conditions worse. Reported Pentagon plans involve establishing a permanent US military presence in the country to assure US control.

America’s belligerent presence abroad is nightmarish for affected countries. Wherever it goes militarily, mass slaughter and destruction follow.

Reckless US Provocation in Chinese Waters

Reckless US Provocation in Chinese Waters | uss-lassen | Military World News

[image: John J. Mike/flickr/CC-BY-2.0]

Imagine the following scenario. One or more Chinese or Russian warships provocatively enter the Gulf of Mexico, or perhaps intrude close to America’s east or west coast, sailing into its territorial waters – after being warned not to.

Washington would likely consider the intrusion an act of war – with full media support. Yet US warships provoke Russia in the Black Sea and China near its Xisha and Nansha Islands repeatedly – showing its own sovereignty matters, no one else’s.

In response to Washington’s latest intrusion, China’s Foreign Ministry spokesman Lu Kang responded sharply, saying:

“Under the (phony) pretext of ‘freedom of navigation,’ the US side once again sent a military vessel into China’s territorial waters off the Xisha Islands without (its) approval.”

Washington clearly “violated Chinese law and relevant international law, infringed upon China’s sovereignty, and disrupted the peace, security and order of the relevant waters.”

“China dispatched military vessels and fighter planes in response to warn off the US vessel. (Beijing) is dissatisfied with, and opposed to, the relevant behavior of the US side.”

It’s responsible for another “serious political and military provocation – deliberately stirring up troubles in the South China Sea, as well as running in the opposite direction from countries in the region who aspire for stability, cooperation and development.”

China’s Defense Ministry spokesman Wu Qian made similar comments.

On Monday Beijing time (Sunday evening in Washington), Trump called Chinese President Xi Jinping over heightening Sino/US tensions.

China Central Television reported Xi saying bilateral relations with America deteriorated since leaders of both countries met in Mar-a-Lago, Florida last April. It quoted Xi saying:

“We attach great importance to the US government’s reaffirmation of the one-China policy, and hope the US side will properly handle the Taiwan problem by adhering to the one-China principle and the three communiques between the two sides.”

A White House statement said “(b)oth leaders reaffirmed their commitment to a denuclearized Korean peninsula. President Trump reiterated his determination to seek more balanced trade relations with America’s trading partner.”

No further details of their conversation were added or explained if Trump got Xi to toughen his pressure on Pyongyang.

Separately, Beijing sharply criticized US imposition of illegal sanctions on China’s Bank of Dandong, Dalian Global Unity Shipping Co., and two Chinese business officials – accused of running front companies for North Korea.

It strongly objected to its announced $1.4 billion arms sale to Taiwan, and Senate Armed Services Committee approval to let US warships regularly sail into Taiwanese ports.

Tensions between both countries are high over the guided-missile destroyer USS Stethem provocatively entering Chinese territorial waters.

In its annual Trafficking in Persons Report to Congress, Trump’s State Department called China among the world’s worst human trafficking offenders, riling Beijing further – the accusation coming from the leading human rights offender on a global scale. It’s deplorable record is unprecedented.

US relations with China and Russia remain dangerously unstable, compounded by Trump’s unpredictability and advice gotten by neocons and hawkish generals infesting his administration – a combustable mix, risking almost anything.

Hoped for improved US relations with Russia and April bromance with China seem light years away in light of hostile Trump administration actions against both countries.

Phony AUMF Justification for US Military Operations

Phony AUMF Justification for US Military Operations | us-army-military | Military US News War Propaganda

[image: Jason Hull/U.S. Army]

On September 14, 2011, congressional Authorization for Use of Military Force (AUMF), giving the president power to use “all necessary and appropriate force” against parties involved in the 9/11 attacks, flagrantly violated international and constitutional law.

Security Council members alone may authorize one country attacking another – permitted only in self-defense, never preemptively the way America goes to war, always against nations threatening no one post-WW II.

Washington operate illegally in all its war theaters, waging naked aggression, the highest of high crimes.

Monday at the National Press Club, Joint Chiefs Chairman General Joseph (“fighting Joe”) Dunford was asked “(w)hat’s the legal justification for targeting Syrian government forces?”

He responded, saying “(w)e are there and have legal justification under the Authorization for Use of Military Force. We are prosecuting a campaign against ISIS and al-Qaeda in Syria.”

Fact: The proper question should have been what gives America the right to violate international and constitutional law in Syria and all its other war theaters?

Fact: No legal justification exists for US military operations anywhere. The nation wasn’t attacked. It’s not threatened. Its wars on other nations are flagrant acts of aggression.

Fact: America supports ISIS, al-Qaeda and other terrorist groups. No campaign against them exists.

According to Law Professor Francis Boyle, the AUMF “cannot possibly be used to justify targeting the Syrian government. Those attacks are…clearly illegal and impeachable.”

“If we care about the rule of law, the most striking thing about Trump is his flagrant violation of the War Powers Clause of the Constitution in this targeting of the Syrian government.”

“Now, the US has been violating international law in terms of its drone assassination program and various bombing campaigns, like the one purporting to target ISIS in Syria.”

“Many of these activities are justified by attempts to invoke the Authorization for the Use of Military Force, passed after the 9/11 attacks. A decade and a half after those attacks, that rationale is international legal nonsense, but it exists.”

“(T)argeting of forces of or allied with the Syrian government has no justification whatsoever” – an impeachable offense.

In the post-Soviet Russia era alone, the Clintons, Bush/Cheney, Obama and now Trump are guilty of the highest of high crimes – yet remain unaccountable for what demands accountability.

US justification for downing a Syrian warplane in its own airspace, combating terrorism, is willfully and deceitfully false, deceitfully claiming “(w)e will not hesitate to defend ourselves or our partners if threatened” – when no threat exists.

Russian and Syrian aircraft operate legally in the country’s airspace. US-led (so-called) coalition warplanes DO NOT!

After four US-led attacks on Syrian and allied troops in recent weeks, CENTCOM claiming it has no desire to fire on these forces is a bald-faced lie. Facts on the ground speak for themselves.

US-led forces aim to control as much northern and southern Syrian territory as possible – their operations flagrantly illegal, wanting these areas separated from Damascus control.

Russian, Syrian and allied forces seek to protect the nation’s sovereignty and territorial integrity.

Neither Washington or Moscow wants direct confrontation. Given escalated US aggression in Syria, anything is possible by accident or design.

Obama didn’t wage war on the country for regime change to quit. It’s now Trump’s war with the same objective.

The risk of possible US confrontation with Russia is too great to ignore.

Surprise, Goyim, Surprise: Analysts Now Expect American Soldiers To Spend Generations In Afghanistan

Surprise, Goyim, Surprise: Analysts Now Expect American Soldiers To Spend Generations In Afghanistan | AP-Photo-of-Afghan-Suicide-Bombing | Government Corruption Military Sleuth Journal Special Interests US News War Propaganda

[image: AP]

Didn’t Donald Trump promise us a total withdrawal of American military forces from foolish bases around the globe- or at least a large reduction in the number of soldiers wasting time and resources on a daily basis?

Like, I even recall him briefly mentioning a departure from South Korea, Japan, and the possibility of granting Germany back their sovereignty – he alluded to seventy years of occupation as being long enough.

As for Afghanistan, it should be plainly evident that the only contributions Americans have given the area involve horrid corruption within the puppet regimes, a massive increase in opium production (the Taliban actually stopped the drug trade on many levels), and easy tickets to the United States for hordes of barbarian Moslem “refugees.”

But perhaps if we fight for another thirty years or so, we’ll at last obtain victory – just keep hoping and keep dying, White Man.

From RT:

Americans may stay on Afghan soil for a “long-haul” mission that could evolve into several decades of “generational struggle,” General David Petraeus, ex-commander of US troops in Afghanistan, admitted.

The current war in Afghanistan is unlikely to end in the foreseeable future, David Petraeus, who led the US military campaign there back in the 2000s, told PBS News Hour. 

Though the retired General argued that “we went there for a reason and we stayed for a reason,” to defeat Al-Qaeda following the 9/11 attacks, he hinted that “a generational struggle” may unfold in the war-ravaged country.

“This is not something that is going to be won in a few years. We’re not going to take a hill, plant a flag, go home to a victory parade,” he said. “And we need to be there for the long haul, but in a way, that is, again, sustainable,” he added.

To back his remarkable statement, he cited other examples of US deployments in other parts of the world that have lasted decades.

“We have been in Korea for 65-plus years because there is an important national interest for that,” Petraeus said.

However, Petraeus “doesn’t think the US involvement will last that long” in Afghanistan.

The general argued “I think we should not approach this as a year-on-year mission,” noting that this kind of tentativeness gives Afghan leaders “the jitters.”

Embrace the feelings of primitive goat herders, Goyim.

Embrace their worries and their sorrows the come from the thought that White Americans will no longer stay in their country to have their legs blown off and their intestines strewn all over the ground.

The interview was released as media reports have emerged indicating that the Trump administration is preparing to deploy an additional 4,000 troops in Afghanistan to train the nation’s army and battle the resurging Taliban. The figure, though sizeable, nonetheless pales compared to the previous number of troops stationed in Afghanistan, which reached 100,000 at peak times.

Petraeus, who commanded the US troops and NATO’s International Security Assistance Force (ISAF) from 2010 to 2011, insisted “it did actually turn back the Taliban.”

However, he then took a more measured tone, saying, “as I said, we are not going to permanently win this.”

Wait, what?

If there is no conceivable chance to win the war (and the Taliban is in fact stronger than ever before thanks to American involvement), why would a nation wish to keep troops fighting into the middle of the century?

One of the great unanswered questions of our time, that’s for sure.

Uninvited US Special Forces in the Philippines

Uninvited US Special Forces in the Philippines | us-military | Military Special Interests World News

Washington claiming they’re aiding the Philippine military combat ISIS in the southern city of Marawi belies US support for the terror group – its fighters serving its imperial interests.

What’s going on? Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte said his government requested no US military aid. He “never approached America,” for help, he stressed.

He didn’t know about the presence of US special forces in Marawi “until they arrived,” he explained.

Were they deployed to aid ISIS against his government? Is there a US plot to oust him? Washington is displeased with his outreach to China and Russia, saying he intends building “new alliances.”

Earlier he called for removing US forces from Jolo and Basilan islands, saying:

“These special forces…have to go. I do not want a rift with America, but they have to go.”

They’ve been in the southern Philippines since 2002, supposedly to train and advise government forces during Operation Enduring Freedom – Philippines.

Duterte blamed Washington’s military presence for inflaming Muslim population tensions. “As long as we stay with America, we will never have peace,” he said, adding he’s reorienting the country’s foreign policy.

“I am about to cross the rubicon between me and the US,” he explained, saying he’s not ready to “break ties (with Washington), but we will open alliances with” China and Russia.

Weeks after taking office in mid-2016, he blasted Western imperial Middle East policies, saying the Obama administration and Britain “destroyed the (region)…forc(ing) their way into Iraq and kill(ing) Saddam.”

“Look at Iraq now. Look what happened to Libya.” He called Obama a “son-of-a-bitch” – refreshingly candid but no way to make friends in Washington.

So-called Joint Task Force Marawi spokesman Lt. Col. Jo-Ar Herrera claimed US forces “are not fighting. They are just providing technical support.”

Did the country’s military invite them without Duterte’s permission? Are they operating behind his back?

Does Washington want him replaced by a compliant, easy to control pro-Western puppet ruler?

Strained US relations with the Philippines under Duterte suggests something may be up – perhaps why ISIS fighters were deployed to Mindanao.

Duterte admitted the risk of defying America, saying “one day, during my term, if I survive the CIA, I still have five years to go.”

Trump Lets Mattis Decide on Troop Levels in US War Theaters

Trump Lets Mattis Decide on Troop Levels in US War Theaters | mattis | Military Trump US News

[image: Alex Brandon, Associated Press]

Straightaway in office, Trump delegated warmaking to hawkish generals – Defense Secretary Mattis, National Security Advisor McMaster and Joint Chiefs Chairman Dunford in charge, assuring endless wars continue.

Battlefield decisions were delegated to local commanders, including drone strikes and special operations missions in countries where America is not officially at war.

Trump administration militarism and warmaking are more muscular than his predecessors. Diplomacy gets short shrift.

Pentagon and intelligence community power holds the Trump administration, Congress and the courts hostage.

Diplomacy is relegated to show. Tillerson has no say over geopolitical policymaking.

A nuclear war could start without Trump, civilian cabinet members, and congressional leaders’ knowledge and involvement until they’re told.

With Pentagon commanders and intelligence community bosses in charge of warmaking and other key geopolitical issues, a potential nightmarish scenario could unfold.

In April, the Pentagon said Trump gave Mattis broad authority to set US troop levels in Iraq and Syria.

After Obama promised no US boots on the ground in both countries, thousands of special forces and other combat troops were deployed.

In March, Mattis ordered another 2,500 82nd Airborne Division and other US combat troops sent to Kuwait for possible deployment to Iraq or Syria – on the phony pretext of combating ISIS America created and supports.

On Tuesday, reports indicate Trump gave Mattis authority to determine US troop strength in Afghanistan.

Thousands more are likely to be deployed to continue the nation’s longest war, long ago lost with no prospect of reversing things no matter how many additional forces are sent to try.

Increasing US troop strength in Afghanistan is the latest example of Trump delegating warmaking authority to neocon generals, eager for endless conflicts and large increases in America’s so-called “defense” budget.

In Tuesday Senate Armed Services Committee testimony, Mattis said “(w)e are not winning in Afghanistan…(W)e will correct this as soon as possible.”

His aim isn’t winning. It’s waging endless wars – in Afghanistan and elsewhere, getting Congress to supply tens of billions of dollars more for militarism and warmaking.

Since Washington launched naked aggression on Afghanistan in October 2001, thousands of US and other NATO forces were killed or wounded.

Millions of Afghans perished from war, related violence, preventable diseases, starvation and overall deprivation.

With over 100,000 US troops in Afghanistan in 2011, their peak number, the war was a lost cause.

It’s no different now or as far ahead as anyone dares imagine.

Over half a million forces in Vietnam when US troop levels peaked couldn’t defeat Hanoi’s redoubtable resistance.

Nor will any numbers sent to Afghanistan fare better – the war lost years ago, yet fighting continues endlessly.

From OSS to CIA Ongoing Clash with Military Intelligence

From OSS to CIA Ongoing Clash with Military Intelligence | Truman-on-the-CIA | CIA Government Government Corruption Military Special Interests

For all those supporters of President Franklin D. Roosevelt’s war, many admire the exploits of the OSS in Europe. While historians for the allied legions adopt the account that circumstances dictated the creation and use of the British, Special Operations Executive, which Churchill proclaimed, to ‘set Europe aflame’; the precedent left a heritage of intervention that few ever warned about the nature of counter-offensive missions. Gathering intelligence on adversaries is valid and even necessary to defend your country. However, to establish contingents of lethal assassins is a fundamental departure from intelligence procurement. During World War II the American version of clandestine operations put into motion a competing and dangerous rival to the traditional role of military intelligence.

This development is examined in The Evolution of the U.S. Intelligence Community.

“America’s entrance into World War II created an immediate need for intelligence to support the warfighter. While the Army and the Navy maintained their own intelligence capabilities, none were prepared to provide the kind of support needed. To bolster this effort, the Office of Strategic Services (OSS) was created in June 1942, under the recently established Joint Chiefs of Staff to succeed the Coordinator of Information. William Donovan remained in charge of the reorganized unit. In addition to assuming the analytical role of its predecessor, the OSS was chartered to carry out clandestine operations against the Axis powers on a worldwide scale. It was not, however, readily accepted by the Joint Chiefs of Staff (JCS), who remained skeptical of the value of OSS activities, and the new unit faced strong competition from the FBI and the Army’s intelligence organization.”

“Source Statement – Former Secretary of State Dean Rusk recalled the 1941 state of the U.S.’s intelligence effort in testimony before a Senate subcommittee: “When I was assigned to G-2 in 1941, well over a year after the war had started in Europe, I was asked to take charge of a new section that had been organized to cover everything from Afghanistan right through southern Asia, southeast Asia, Australia, and the Pacific. Because we had no intelligence organization that had been giving attention to that area up to that time, the materials available to me when I reported for duty consisted of a tourist handbook on India and Ceylon, a 1924 military attache’s report from London on the Indian Army, and a drawer full of clippings from the New York Times that had gathered since World War One. That was literally the resources of the G-2 on that vast part of the world a year after the war in Europe started.”

Since the resources and priories of the military were not focused on procuring accurate and worldwide reach to gather intelligence, it is understandable that the immediacy of wartime needs, FDR would want to by-pass the Army and Navy. Most know of the successful efforts of breaking the Japanese codes at the decryption center Station HYPO run by Capt. Joseph Rochefort, which proved so crucial at the battle of Midway. Such signal efforts became the stable of the NSA, which nominally is under the command authority of the United States Department of Defense. In accordance with Department of Defense Directive 5100.20, dated December 23, 1971, the Director of the NSA must always be a commissioned officer of the military services.

Contrast these functions with the post WWII establishment of the CIA.

“In 1946 President Harry S. Truman, recognizing the need for a coordinated postwar intelligence establishment, created by executive order a Central Intelligence Group and a National Intelligence Authority, both of which recruited key former members of the OSS. As in the days of the OSS, there were problems of distrust and rivalry between the new civilian agencies and the military intelligence services and the FBI.

In 1947 Congress passed the National Security Act, which created the National Security Council (NSC) and, under its direction, the CIA. Given extensive power to conduct foreign intelligence operations, the CIA was charged with advising the NSC on intelligence matters, correlating and evaluating the intelligence activities of other government agencies, and carrying out other intelligence activities as the NSC might require. Although it did not end rivalries with the military services and the FBI, the law established the CIA as the country’s preeminent intelligence service.”

This maturation that placed the CIA as the go to intelligence source has allowed the apocalyptic ontogeny of the shadow government. Now anyone, who scrutinize the actual involvements that the CIA has fostered, must readily acknowledge that collective intelligence has not been the primary function of The Agency.  A Timeline of CIA Atrocities by Steve Kangas provides a partial list of covert intrusions into the affairs of foreign nations.

Folks, these surreptitious operations require plausible deniability to protect the elitist “Skull and Bone” culture that masterminded the original purpose of this rogue fifth column. Yet the ultimate treason committed by these unaccountable traitors direct their lethal wares domestically. Violating their charter, the stench from any objective inquiry into CIA drug trafficking that has taken such a sever toll on our own citizens and their complicit involvement in the JFK assassination, are evidence that Langley’s machinery of subversion seeks to control the actual directions of the U.S. government.

No person foresees JFK Wished He Could Splinter The CIA ‘Into A Thousand Pieces And Scatter It Into The Winds’. Yet it could be possible to separate the functions the Central Intelligence Agency has historically persuaded. The clear line breached stems from allowing the CIA to conduct their own hidden wars. While the military has their own sordid record of failed and misguided policy endeavors, the waging of military conflicts should never be place under the auspices of civilian mercenaries.

From the CIA’s own site, the First CIA-Military Command Relationship Agreement.

“After CIA’s founding in September 1947, the National Security Council (NSC) gave the Agency responsibility for conducting covert action, clandestine collection, and paramilitary activities “in times of peace.” CIA’s covert capabilities included propaganda and economic warfare, sabotage, demolition and evacuation measures, and subversion against hostile states through assistance to underground resistance movements, guerrillas, and liberation groups.

The NSC specifically stated that “Such operations shall not include armed conflict by recognized military forces … or cover and deception for military operations.” Although the NSC ordered CIA to place its paramilitary activities under theater commanders in combat areas, it made no mention of subordinating the Agency to the JCS in wartime as had been done with the OSS during World War II. Nor did the NSC and JCS resolve the question of when and how a “theater of war” would be formally designated for purposes of operational control.”

The CIA has conducted its own interventionism in foreign operations that are well beyond the authority of Congress. Be that as it may, in an age where Congress has abdicated its power to declare war; the unbridled Agency is an authoritarian syndicate of subterfuge and betrayal.

The military needs to be in command of any foreign adventurism. As lacking in traditional American foreign policy as this standard violates, armed services academy trained officers are a far better chain of command structure than careerist bureaucrats or power hungry politicians.

As disturbing as these circumstances are, the trend is even worse. ‘We Can’t Spy … If We Can’t Buy!’: The Privatization of Intelligence and the Limits of Outsourcing ‘Inherently Governmental Functions’ adds another layer of corruption that stems from handing out security clearances as bags of candy on Halloween.

“Though it lags behind the privatization of military services, the privatization of intelligence has expanded dramatically with the growth in intelligence activities following the 11 September 2001 attacks on the United States. In a report published three days after those attacks, the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence encouraged a ‘symbiotic relationship between the Intelligence Community and the private sector’. In addition to dollars spent – dominated by large items such as spy satellites – this has seen an important increase in the proportion of personnel working on contract. More than 70 per cent of the Pentagon’s Counterintelligence Field Activity (CIFA) unit is staffed by contractors, known as ‘green badgers’, who also represent the majority of personnel in the DIA, the CIA’s National Clandestine Service, and the National Counterterrorism Center. At the CIA’s station in Islamabad contractors reportedly outnumber government employees three to one.”

Disclosing “Top Secret” confidential items taint military personnel as well as government agencies. Names such as Jonathan Pollard, John Walker, Jr., Robert Hanssen and Aldrich Ames haunt anyone deeply concerned about authentic national security.

What is often missed with all the trumped up hysteria about Russian infiltration in the 2016 Presidential election is that the CIA pioneered the techniques of gaming election results and overthrowing obstinate regimes.

Real intelligence starts with securing our defenses, not maintaining or expanding a caustic empire. Loyal American citizens do not pledge allegiance to the CIA. Gen. William “Wild Bill” Donovan is rolling in his grave if he could see what his OSS has morphed into as the Central Intelligence Agency.

What is the Best Way to Support Veterans?

What is the Best Way to Support Veterans? | us-flag | Military Sleuth Journal Special Interests US News Veterans War Propaganda

Since the abolishment of the draft, volunteers have manned the military. By professional armed services standards, this conversion has produced the most efficient and competitive war machine ever. However, what escapes this simplistic viewpoint is that the forces deployed “To Kill People and Break Things”, are used to expand and perpetuate an empire, while forgoing an actual defense of our nation. Decisions to police the world are made by non elected agencies, who essentially formulate the detailed policies that shed the blood of soldiers and drain the treasure of the country. Presidents and politicians talk about the hard determinations to place service personnel in harm’s way, but it is the military-industrial-complex that does the grunt work in staging the logistics and directing what theater of operations the grand imperial military can operate.

The CIA, State Department and the Department of Defense run the show. The commander and chief W. Bush called himself  ‘The Decider’, while Dick Cheney and Donald Rumsfeld supplied the options that they wanted for junior. Barack Hussein Obama proved to be the best customer for drone manufactures General Atomics, Northrop Grumman, Textron and Boeing, as he accelerated the drone war by ten times more strikes than Bush. Some may see this strategy as a way to reduce injuries of the ground troops. But such a restrained and costly tactic avoids the real purpose of a defense force.

Foreign expedition intrusions never seem to provide true national security. Donald Trump has forgotten his campaign platform with the inclusion of NeoCon careerists into his administration. With all the lip services from both sides of the aisle about honoring the sacred remains of our respected dead, the failure to ever address why a “grateful nation” cannot reinvent the underlying purpose of all these unwinnable conflicts, goes unnoticed.

Not much has changed since the butchery of World War II produced the belligerent culture of The Dubious U.S. State Department.

“In the WW II movie Anzio, Robert Mitchum played a pacifist war correspondent in search of some philosophical reasoning for why men wage war. His conclusion at the end of one of the bloodiest battles in the European theater was simple, pure and alarming. They like it! Who can argue with the historic record? If you don’t relish the perverse repetition of duly sanctioned and organized carnage, why continue to engage in the practice? Before the allegiant apologists assault the argument, it is incumbent upon them to prove that circumstances are necessary to send their sons (and now daughters) off for sacrifice! If a just war is feasible in an age of impersonal and strategic GPS weapons, it has yet to be confirmed that it is essential to maintain our freedom.”

Human nature has not changed. State sponsored killing has been the staple of all empires, especially in their last stages. If jingoistic supporters truly champion their esteemed veterans, they would demand that war should not be a causal pursuit, but only a last resort when the nation is attacked by a bellicose enemy and after Congress declares war.

In an environment of acquiesce, the President bypasses the constitution whenever the fabrication of false flags exonerate the need to formally declare war. The biggest scam in foreign policy is that terrorism is an existential threat; while in reality, the intrusion and systemic invention of foes are created to maintain a permanent warfare, designed to never end hostilities.

Our veterans deserve better. Yet what you hear from the indoctrinated warriors is that dying for your government is a noble sacrifice. Missing is the empirical fact that the government is the ultimate crime syndicate, who long ago betrayed the nation and all her citizens.

The conclusion in the essay, What Memorial Day Do You Honor?; provides food for thought on every Memorial Day.

“The call to service needs to be in the defense of what is meant in the Idea of America. The country that we all now live in, so often has lost sight of that truth. We have much to celebrate, but an American empire is not one. The sacrifices made deserve respect, but not consent. The flag that waves deserves thirteen stars. The one that now flies, needs to be turned upside down.”

Memorial Day should be an educational experience, not just a celebration of war stories. Progress on restoring a rational foreign policy and a sane military should be judged by scaling down the veteran administration, not on dispensing quality services, but because the overseas adventures will be curtailed. Withdrawing from the garrison encirclement of the globe is essential and beneficial to establish a bona fide national security defense of the homeland.

The conventional attitude disputes this appraisal. So how many more of these unsustainable invasions will it take for the public to deal with the false assumption that shock and awe from the skies will wipe out an ISIS combatant that has been supplied and protected by globalist traitors within the U.S. Deep State?

As long as quislings like Senator John McCain preach their betrayal and treat troops as cannon fodder, veterans will be used as expendable. The power and influence of the war machine establishment has defeated the traditional non-interventionism heritage that George Washington spoke so eloquently in his farewell address.

Where is the righteous outrage? Stop the madness and listen to the sage counsel of the father of our country, George Washington. His farewell address speaks to all ages and people.

“Against the insidious wiles of foreign influence (I conjure you to believe me, fellow-citizens) the jealousy of a free people ought to be constantly awake, since history and experience prove that foreign influence is one of the most baneful foes of republican government. But that jealousy to be useful must be impartial; else it becomes the instrument of the very influence to be avoided, instead of a defense against it. Excessive partiality for one foreign nation and excessive dislike of another cause those whom they actuate to see danger only on one side, and serve to veil and even second the arts of influence on the other. Real patriots who may resist the intrigues of the favorite are liable to become suspected and odious, while its tools and dupes usurp the applause and confidence of the people, to surrender their interests.

The great rule of conduct for us in regard to foreign nations is in extending our commercial relations, to have with them as little political connection as possible“.

For those who reject such wisdom with tortured arguments that American Imperium is necessary, do not serve the veteran community well. Americans who approve of NATO’S expansion, a greater Israel Middle East and a Saudi Sunni Arab coalition, guarantee that present and future generations of soldiers-at-arms will be lost to the meat grinder. Disposable fatalities in flag draped casket  sent to Dover Delaware., will continue. Where is the outrage for the sending of our people into a slaughter that has intentionally no resolution as a final outcome?  If the celebration of Memorial Day has morphed into ignoring past wars and substituting the latest clash of civilizations, the memory of the true meaning and the price paid by our founding patriots will be lost.

When a raw recruit enters the home field of their drill sergeant, the heritage of duty and service is imparted during the training routine. Molding youth into the sharp end of the spear allows for the continued revolving door of fresh enlistees to feed the brigades for the next hot spot.

It is difficult to ignore this persistent pattern of instruction that produces eager soldiers. Those within the higher ranks of authority earn their career advancement by sending regiments of troops abroad to keep the increases in the pentagon budget justified.

Every budget falls short of the requested capacity desired to keep the world free; whatever that definition means, to the propagandists for the New World Order. Who do veterans fight for? America or the NWO? It cannot be both, since the globalist agenda is diametrically opposed to the Bill of Right protections of a Republic based upon sovereign states.

One does not have to assail the military when disparaging the underlying foreign policies that abuse and place veterans at risk for no valid reason. Alone this distinction should be enough to separate respective individual military persons from the disconnected decisions that place them as targets with no definitive purpose behind their service. Nonetheless, Memorial Day celebrations can rightly snub the conflict, while relating to the courageous bravery often exhibited in combat.

Those within our advocacy circle will condemn the political and banking elites that maintain the warfare state. If Memorial Day is to eventually achieve universal veneration, stopping future contrived conflicts is necessary. Instead of placing flags on the graves of the fallen, commit to a political doctrine that is willing to defeat the war party, which causes the fake crusades to be fought. Defense means protecting the home soil, not the corporatist interests of transnational monopolists.

Pentagon Intends Continued Aerial Operations in Syria De-Escalation Zones

Pentagon Intends Continued Aerial Operations in Syria De-Escalation Zones | bloody_us_flag_sized__large | Government Corruption Military US News War Propaganda

Washington wants endless war and regime change in Syria, not conflict resolution for peace and stability throughout the country.

On Thursday, Russia, Iran and Turkey agreed on creating four de-escalation zones in the Syria, these nations serving as guarantors.

Sergey Lavrov said America “proposed (the idea) at the beginning of this year, with a view to creating conditions to ensure safety of the civilian population, to stop violence in those regions where fierce fighting was underway between government and armed opposition forces.”

Not exactly following Thursday’s announcement. Washington isn’t part of the agreement. It supports halting all aerial operations in designated zones – except its own.

According to Pentagon spokesman Major JT Rankine-Galloway on Friday, “the (so-called US-led) coalition will continue to target ISIS wherever they operate to ensure they have no sanctuary,” adding:

The US continues “to effectively de-conflict coalition operations. However, we are not going to discuss the specifics of how we de-conflict operations in the highly congested and complex battle space in Syria.”

Opposition groups haven’t accepted the plan, expressing “fears and doubts.” They reject Iran as a guarantor country.

Their spokesman Abo Zayd called it “incomprehensible (for) Iran (to be involved as) a peacemaker, adding ceasefire is “unsustainable” under these conditions.

US-backed opposition terrorists are preparing a formal response to Russia’s plan – now in effect. In a show of good faith, Moscow ceased all aerial operations in de-escalation zones on May 1.

Kremlin envoy to conflict resolution talks Alexander Lavrentyev said de-escalation zones are now closed to Russian, Syrian, Turkish and US-led coalition aircraft.

“There are absolutely no arrangements for the operation of aircraft, in particular, those of the (so-called US-led) coalition, with or without notification. The subject is closed,” he stressed.

“As guarantors, we will see to it,” he added. Monitors will check for violators. The Pentagon supports cessation of Russian, Syrian and Turkish aerial operations, not its own, on the phony pretext of combating ISIS Washington supports, shows how shaky the agreement is, unlikely to succeed like earlier failed Moscow good faith efforts.

Russia, Syria and Iran can be counted on to refrain from aerial operations in agreed on de-escalation zones. Although Trump expressed support the plan with Putin by phone days earlier, Washington appears unwilling to go along.

US-supported terrorist opposition groups walked out of the Astana, Kazakhstan signing ceremony, refusing to accept Iran as a guarantor state, a phony pretext to reject the deal, likely to continue hostilities, not end them.

The State Department expressed “concerns about the Astana agreement, including the involvement of Iran as a so-called ‘guarantor.’ “

Russia, Syria and Iran alone are committed to keep working for conflict resolution. Washington and its rogue allies want endless war and regime change.
