GADDAFI PREDICTED AND TRIED TO STOP THIS TERROR WAVE IN UK, SO THE US MURDERED HIM
Response to another reader who wrote:
"It was not the US that murdered him....it was the agents of the deep state”
But, my friend, that IS the United states.
There is no other, alternate United States out there somewhere, as floating in space.
Americans typically have not recognized a fundamental truth.
The "deep state" or whatever you choose to call it, grew out of the American system of politics and of empire-building abroad. It is an organic, natural outgrowth of what started a very long time ago.
It was not imposed by just a few in secret. It does indeed serve just a few, but it was not imposed by them in some kind of coup or plot.
The fact is that you can have either a world empire or a decent country.
You cannot have both.
But few Americans recognize that. It really means that when schoolkids recite stuff about Teddy Roosevelt and San Juan Hill or about James Monroe and the Monroe Doctrine, they are reciting from the origins, the early building blocks, of what we see today.
Every element of the world empire - the CIA and 16 other intelligence agencies, the Pentagon, the State Department (as constituted), the major lobby groups, the bought-and-paid elections - works against having a decent country.
And you, indeed, do not have one.
Today it is a giant, aggressive, murderous thing demanding its own way with the entire 95% of the world who are not Americans.
Yet it always pretends it has other values, deep principles, blubbering bromides about them as it burns, bombs, and slashes.
Just read the words of half-wit Nikki Haley appointed as UN Ambassador.
Unbelievable pretensions of special goodness and worth for Americans, quoting inappropriate nonsense like Lincoln’s words on the Union, while defending mass killing, massive induced migrations, theft, and injustice. It is laughable.
It truly is nothing more than Orwell’s: “War is Peace, Freedom is Slavery, and Ignorance is Strength.”
It involves what Orwell called doublethink, something extremely common in America.
You cannot console yourself with, "Oh, we're good guys. It's just all those bad guys of the deep state that are bad!"
That is utter nonsense.
Trump got elected playing with that same phony theme, and look at him now, a dues-paying member of the American imperial establishment. Threatening war in a number of places. Selling whole armaments industries to murderous thugs.
Truth is, you don't have a democracy at all.
You have a plutocracy which carries out an election stage play every four years.
