Corporate Misadventures Abroad / Economic Crunch at Home

“The US Central Command (CENTCOM) is active in 20 countries across the Middle Eastern region, and is actively ramping-up military training, counter-terrorism programs, logistical support, and funding to the military in various nations. At this point, the US has some kind of military presence in Afghanwars-74-1-us-military-bases-around-the-world-2istan, Bahrain, Egypt, Iran, Iraq, Jordan, Kazakhstan, Kuwait, Kyrgyzstan, Lebanon, Oman, Pakistan, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, Syria, Tajikistan, Turkmenistan, U.A.E., Uzbekistan, Yemen and other nations. The U. S. military or the CIA are in active wars or conflicts in 27 nations.  On Obama’s watch we have bombed 10 nations who did not attack us.  We have become the terror.

US Africa Command (AFRICOM), according to the paper,
“supports military-to-military relationships with 54 African nations.”

[Gosztola points out that the U.S. military is also conducting operations of one kind or another in Syrian, Jordan, South Sudan, Kosovo, Libya, Yemen, the Congo, Uganda, Mali, Niger and other countries.]

Altogether, that makes 74 nations where the US is fighting or “helping” some force in some proxy struggle that has been deemed beneficial by the nation’s masters of war.”

Obama is a war criminal.

 


U.S. Currently Fighting 74 Different Wars …
And Many More Covert Wars

And Many More Covert Wars Without Congressional Oversight …
Let Alone Public Knowledge Fire Dog Lake’s Kevin Gosztola
notes:

handsup“Last year, Karen DeYoung and Greg Jaffe of the Washington Post reported that U.S. Special Operations forces were deployed in 75 countries, up from 60 at the end of the Bush presidency. By the
end of this year, U.S. Special Operations Command spokesman Colonel Tim Nye told me, that number will likely reach 120. “
http://www.salon.com/2011/08/04/secert_american_wars/

~And as for OVERT military action vs covert deployment of special Ops troops:

… This much is inarguable.


most-famous-paintings-2When Obama took office we were at war in four nations.

We are now at war in at least 27 nations … so far.

Afghanistan, Algeria, Burkina Faso, Central African Republic, Chad, Democratic Republic of the Congo, Djibouti, Ethiopia, Gaza, Gulf of Guinea, Iran, Iraq, Liberia, Libya, Mali, Niger, Nigeria, Pakistan, Somalia, South Sudan, Syria, Tunesia, Uganda, Ukraine,
West Bank, and Yemen.

Most of these extra-constitutional wars are violations of US Law,
International Law and abrogate US Treaties.

I do not see this as progress or as progressive.  I see this as a dangerous surrender to the munitions and Fortune 500 corporations permitted to misuse our troops in adventurism abroad. This president is a war-criminal based on his violations of the War Powers Act, Constitutional mandates and continuing illegal drone attacks. And his willing acceptance of abandoning children at our borders, murdering prisoners and funding Isrraeli atrocities in GAZA is unacceptable.

Obama is not stupid. This makes him a tool, corrupt, incompetent or powerless. None of these sound good. (And he may simply be afraid for his own survival.)


obama_drones_ap_imgHere are some of Obama’s comments during this economic crisis:

“UPS and FedEx are doing just fine, right?
It’s the Post Office that’s always having problems.”

“The private sector is doing fine.” — Barack Obama

“”Any U.S. military action in foreign lands risks creating more enemies and impacts public opinion overseas. Moreover, our laws constrain the power of the President even during wartime, and I have taken an oath to defend the Constitution of the United States. The very precision of drone strikes and the necessary secrecy often involved in such actions can end up shielding our government from the public scrutiny that a troop deployment invites. It can also lead a President and his team to view drone strikes as a cure-all for terrorism.”

usuncut~ When Obama is too candid, he scares me a bit.  And his record is not good. He sold us out on health care, |peace, economic reform, capital punishment, wars of choice, civil rights and constitutional mandates against wiretapping, torture, rape, and murder.


And this betrayal was “accomplished” while surrendering our economic base to corporate wars of aggression, misusing troops abroad. This surrender has cost thousands of lives, trillions of dollars in resources, and only reaps
rewards for our sponsors.  (Now in 27 nations instead of 4.)sociopol_globalmilitarism113

Not small potatoes.

I’m not certain a Nobel Peace prize has ever before been recalled,
but a growing number of public conversations need be heard.

labor-may-dayHow many secret wars are we fighting?
This global presence — in about 60 percent of the world’s nations and far larger than previously acknowledged — provides striking new evidence of a rising clandestine Pentagon power elite waging a secret war in all corners of the world.  http://www.salon.com/2011/08/04/secert_american_wars/

The Rise of the Military’s Secret Military
U.S. special ops forces are being deployed in more and more nations
— and the public has no idea…

Funny Business…

The United States Government has been run like a branch of organized crime: a special sort of American business… Funny business that ain’t so funny.

“Nothing to fear but fear itself”

Voting for war has not been working for 36 years. When voting for Democrats or Republicans advocating war, you better think about the consequences of your actions.

Imagination is the Cure…

If we invest in alternative energy, we can establish colonies on the moon and explore the stars. We are a young civilization, we humans beings… and it is too early to write us off.

Truth is…

“All of us are more than fed up with mediocrity, hypocrisy, lesser-evil, trickle-down, less-than-perfect settling for spending trillions and killing millions for munitions firms and billionaires who pay no taxes and steal what we pay.

This is more than “less than perfect.” This shakedown is organized crime, committed in our names and on our dime because we let it happen and it comes from both sides of the corporate aisles.

The Political Circus

While stepping back from governing to politic, look pretty and tell lies… Obama allowed the CIA, the Pentagon, profiteers and criminals to attack dozens of nations who have not attacked us for destruction, extraction, exploitation and extortion. This shameful display of aggression, in our name, has made America a pariah state.

The Obama Legacy: The Rule of Law is suspended in America

“Obama says his new rule without law gives him the right to murder at will. We are in a heap of trouble. We need the ACLU right now. And it is critical that everyday people wake up and smell the coffee before we lose the rest of our civil rights. Human rights are civil rights.”
