LIGHTNIN’ HOPKINS – WAR NEWS BLUES
When Obama took office we were fighting four unprovoked wars in Iraq, Afghanistan, Gaza and the West Bank. And by the time Obama put troops on the ground in Nigeria, this made EIGHT avoidable wars where we created new enemies:
Afghanistan, Iraq, Algeria, Libya, Somalia, Pakistan, Yemen. and then Nigeria…
After October of 2014, President Obama went beyond these wars of choice until America was fighting 34 illegal wars of aggression in smaller and less powerful nations that did not attack us.
These conflicts include bombings, drones, espionage, an various forms of aggression to destabilize these nations so that America can extract resources, exploit people or collect extortion. This unprovoked aggression has made us demonstrably less secure. Trump doubled down, with 50 unprovoked wars on nations who did not attack the USA.
B. B. King – The Thrill Is Gone (Live at Montreux 1993)
America is fighting 50 unprovoked and avoidable corporate-American wars (economic and military aggression ranging from sanctions to contractors, mercenaries, troops and bombs) in Afghanistan, Algeria, Belarus, Bolivia, Burkina Faso, Burundi, Central African Republic, Chad, China, Comoros, Cuba, Democratic Republic of the Congo, Eritrea, Djibouti, Ethiopia, Gaza, Gulf of Guinea, Haiti, Hong Kong, Iran, Iraq, Kazakhstan, Kuwait, Lebanon, Lesotho, Liberia, Libya, Mali, Myanmar, Niger, Nigeria, Nicaragua, North Korea, Pakistan, Palestine, Papua New Guinea, the Philippines, Russia, Somalia, South Sudan, Syria, Tunisia, Turkey, Turkmenistan, Uganda, Ukraine, Venezuela, the West Bank, Yemen and Zimbabwe.
These unnecessary wars include ongoing attacks and the occupation of more than 572 indigenous and sovereign nations in North America.
None of these nations, at home or abroad, have attacked the colonialists in charge.
Obama and Biden bombed at least TEN Sovereign NATIONS: Afghanistan, Algeria, Iraq, Libya, Pakistan, the Philippines, Somalia, South Sudan, Syria, and Yemen
This illegal and unprovoked aggression has happened before in American history. Previously, we had attacked one or two nations to underwrite various munitions cartels. But Barack Obama, posing as a moderate, allowed the CIA and Pentagon to initiate or continue simultaneous and illegal attacks, bombings, invasions, occupations and aggression.
This aggression is more devastating and lethal than ANY administration since World War Two.
Most of these unprovoked bombings violate International Treaties, U. S. Civil Law, The War Powers Act and Constitutional Mandates. We have deployed troops, attacked, bombed, and/or used illegal drones and invasive espionage and exploitation against innocent people so that munitions firms can engage in military profiteering for corporate profit. This is done at taxpayer expense.
America was not attacked, but has perpetrated assaults on 50 nations: war crimes writ large.
Corporate wars of aggression misuse U.S. troops to serve transnational munitions corporations at the expense of everyday people in America and at least 50 other nations.
We have been making new enemies every day with this trigger-happy corporate arrogance. Under Trump, these unnecessary, avoidable and unprovoked wars continued expanding.
Biden promises nothing will change.
Sometimes, with corrupted corporate media, it seems nobody is paying attention. It remains ILLEGAL to wage war without congressional approval. The forces we are arresting, chasing down, attacking or killing have not attacked this nation and do not pose any threat to the American people. The insertion of US troops misuse of the CIA, Pentagon and 16 more intelligence services, agencies, contractors and mercenaries, including bombings and drones… are illegal acts and violations of US and international law.
Everyday people in the USA are subjected to multiple propaganda campaigns telling them to be afraid… be very afraid. Based on this fear-mongering, the military-industrial complex has spent trillions and killed millions. The vast majority of the casualties are innocent of any attack against America.
The USA is the aggressor in dozens of illegal wars of choice. Everyday people, the 99%, must demand that our “leaders” shut down 50 wars and secure the peace. Our corporate partners can diversity and invest in rebuilding this nation instead of wreaking havoc at home and abroad. There are more of us than there are of them. And the time is now. We have the power. This remains in our hands.
“Over the last twelve years, hundreds of thousands, or millions… of innocent civilians have been killed in Afghanistan, Iraq, Somalia, Yemen, Palestine, Pakistan and 44 other nations targeted in American wars.”
The U.S. has the highest defense budget in its history, exceeding the military expenditures of all other nations in the world combined.
The latest convenient “terrorist threat” dominating corporate media is crowding out very real economic problems inflicted upon the people of the U.S. and the world.
Trump, as he promised, has continued these wars. Biden continues our feckless folly with fifty wars of aggression. 31-34 of these 50 wars are his legacy from the Obama debacle.
This avoidable corporate aggression has bankrupted America and the bottom will fall out before 2030.
We CAN prevent this disaster.
“One thing is certain. The United States government and ruling class have nothing to offer people but war, bankruptcy. intensified domestic surveillance and economic “austerity.” If the CIA, the Pentagon, the White House and our corporate media continue to bombard the airwaves with threats about “terrorism,” this propaganda will block any discussion about real economic and environmental problems. The various creative distractions challenge the imagination.
Questions about “security” will take priority over the decline of the American “empire.” These wars of choice have put 34 million people out of work at home. Banks have foreclosed on millions of homes, closed hundreds of schools and have forced tens of thousands of university students away from their studies due to a monumental escalation of fees and cutbacks in financial assistance.”
Western intervention overseas costs trillions, kills millions, creates more enemies and makes planet Earth demonstrably less secure. America has become the terror we most feared.
If we continue dozens of simultaneous wars costing trillions, American bankruptcy will destabilize the world economy and the USA will be in hasty retreat from more than 800 bases used to wage 50 or more wars from more than 150 nations.
The fiscal collapse of American empire will take place between 2025 and 2030. Before 2050, rising toxic oceans will be flooding cities, water supplies and nuclear power generation plants. This is wake-up time.
“Peace is the only battle worth waging.”
Forget the Lesser Evils and vote your values for the greater good. We outnumber these fools.
