There are many who believe that the world is staring into the abyss of a new “World War.” I don’t see a World War scenario. Not like the two idiot wars of Europe. That said, we are in a Global War phase right now. America is engaged in conflicts all over Africa, Central Asia and the Middle East combined with rising tensions between Europe/US and Russia as well as US/Pac Rim/Japan/Southeast Asia and China. We also have the rolling imbroglio with Iran that began when Allen Dulles sent Kermit Roosevelt to stage the coup that put the idiot Shah into power in ’53.
 
We are already in conflict all over the globe due to our meddling and international interventionism. Will a shooting war come next? With China? With Russia? Who knows? Obama seems to be doing his damnedest before his administration ends to bring about war with half of the world.

What will the next few decades bring us?

If Hillary is elected, war is certain. If Sanders gains the White House, I think we veer more towards isolationism. If Trump is elected, I have no idea. The guy treads both sides of the aisle and neither.

The problem with the world is that we always yearn for conflict. Peace is but a lull in hostilities for humanity. The world has been at war more often than not. Even during periods which have been described as “Eras of Peace” there have been small, geographically contained wars.

Many folks want to blame the US and our interventions for the conflicts and chaos raging across the planet. There is no truth to this. Humanity was at war with itself long before the ancestors of the founders were born. Humanity will be at conflict with and amongst itself long after America has fallen and been forgotten. Someone else will be blamed but there is never one point of conflict and never one source of conflict.  The world is chaos. Humanity will always find some way to divide itself.

We may as well let loose the Dogs of War!

 

Middle East Culpability

wahhabi-idiot-terrorist
On the Middle East. Much of the violence in the Middle East can be directly traced to actions of outside interlopers since World War 1.

The Brits worked to place the Saudis in power after World War 1. America acted in concert with others to empower the House of Saud during and after World War II.

The Saudis are Wahhabis. The State Religion of Saudi Arabia is Wahhabist Islam. The Muslim Brotherhood is a Wahhabist Movement. Al Qaeda, al Jihad, ISIS and every other extremist Sunni Islamic organizations traces it’s origins to the Muslim Brotherhood and/or directly to the preachings of al Wahhab.

We created the beast which spawned the demons whom we fight in the War on Terror.

In the 50s, Kermit Roosevelt was sent by Ike and the Dulles Bros, at the behest of Britain and Anthony Eden, to depose Mossadegh who was Prime Minister of Iran. Mossadegh was deposed. The Shah was placed on the Peacock Throne of Iran by Kermit Roosevelt.

The Shah used his Savak to terrorize the people of Iran. He exiled Khomeini.

Carter weakened the Shah some 25 or 30 years later by speaking to Human Rights and withdrawing support.

Khomeini returns.

Khomeini and his revolution are the progenitors of all Shi’a extremism. Khomeini and his Iranian Revolutionary Guards created Hezbollah.

No Kermit, no Shah. No Shah, no Khomeini. No Khomeini, no IRG. No IRG, no Hezbollah.

Vietnam plays a role here as well. Prior to Vietnam (and Iran), the US was seen as a champion of the downtrodden and a revolutionary victor over Colonialism.

After Vietnam, we became a colonial oppressor.

Cuba plays a role here as well. We attempted to deny Cuba self determination.

The US is no longer a champion of the oppressed people’s of Colonialism by our own actions. Instead, we are merely actors for Big Banks and Big Corporations.

This is how we are seen, with great justification, by much of the world.

Much of the terrorism aimed at us is directly attributable to our support of dictators and despots throughout the Middle East and Asia.

ISIS, al Qaeda and other Islamic Organizations feel that in order to take power from the House of Saud and other despotic regimes that they must attack us. We are the primary support for the Saudis and other despots. We have supported nearly every Sunni despot extant.

We supported Saddam before we deposed him. We gave him his initial batch of nerve agents and gave him the means to develop more. Then we used possession of these as rationale for attacking him.

We did the same thing to Noriega. As long as he was our man, we turned a blind eye to his drug trafficking. As soon as he decided that he wanted to go his own way, we defamed him and attacked him. I’ve read widely that the CIA actually assisted in his drug trafficking and money laundering before we turned on him.

The Middle East is a mess partially because the West disbanded the Ottoman Empire, partially because of the idiot Sukes-Picot agreement, partially because of oil profits, and partially because of the Sunni-Shi’a divide.

America has always pushed a divide and conquer agenda on the Middle East.

Now, we complain that they are divided and can’t or won’t come together.

We’re hilarious.

If the Middle East were to come together as in the old days of the Qaliphate, does anyone think that they would do otherwise than what ISIS claims as a goal?
