The Disappearing AMERICAN and WORLDS Middle Classes!
THEIR ORGANIZED TOTALLY OUT OF CONTROL "MILITARY INDUSTRIAL KILLING COMPLEX" BLEEDING AMERICANS DRY!! PAYING $14 TRILLION DOLLARS!! FOR 6 WARS THEY ABSOULUTELY OBJECT TOO!The US government and THE O-BOM-A White House and OUR MORRALLY CORRUPT and DEBAUCHED CONGRESS!! spends $10 billion dollars a month or $120 billion a year to fight an estimated “50 -75 ‘Al Qaeda types’ in Afghanistan ”, according to the CIA and quoted in the Financial Times of London (6/25 -26/11, p. 5). During the past 30 months O-BOM-A has spent $300 billion dollars in Afghanistan which adds up to $4 billion dollars for each alleged ‘Al Queda type’. If we multiply this by the two dozen or so sites and countries where the White House claims ‘Al Qaeda’ terrorists have been spotted, we begin to understand why the US budget deficit has grown astronomically to over $1.6 trillion for the current fiscal year.
It is absurd to believe that the Pentagon and White House would spend $10 billion a month just to hunt down a handful of terrorists ensconced in the mountains of Afghanistan.
WHY this set of geopolitics for Afghanistan?
First, The US is actively establishing forward military bases, surrounding and bordering on China and Russia!
Secondly, US bases in Afghanistan serve as launching pads to foment “dissident separatist” armed ethnic conflicts and apply the tactics of ‘divide and conquer’ against Iran , China , Russia and Central Asian republics. IN THE STANS-CENTRAL-ASIA THERE IS MORE OIL THEN SAUDI ARABIA.
Thirdly, Washington’s launch of the Afghan war (2001) and the easy initial conquest encouraged the Pentagon to believe that a low cost, easy military victory was at hand, one that could enhance the image of the US as an invincible power, capable of IMPOSING its RULE ANYWHERE in the world, in OTHER WORDS "WARING FOR EMPIRE", TOTAL WORLD DOMINANCE and CONTROL OF OIL!
Fourthly, the early success of the Afghan war was seen as a prelude to the launching of asequence of successful wars, first against Iraq and to be followed by Iran , Syria and beyond. These would serve the triple purpose of enhancing Israeli regional power, controlling strategic oil resources and enlarging the arc of US military bases from South and Central Asia, through the Persian Gulf to the Mediterranean .
The strategic policies in 2000 and ongoing made by THE NEO-CON WAR MONGERS OF Bush and Obama assumed that guns, money, force and bribes could build stable satellite states firmly within the orbit of the post-Soviet US EMPIRE! Afghanistan was seen as an easy first conquest the initial step to sequential wars. Each victory, it was assumed would undermine domestic and European opposition. The initial costs of IMPERIAL WAR, the Neo-Cons claimed, would be paid for by wealth extracted from the conquered countries, especially from the oil producing regions. ALL LIES AND WHICH THE AMERICAN PUBLIC IS NOW PAYING FOR THEIR ILLEGAL MASSIVE WARS!!
IMPERIAL DECLINE! Empty Treasury! and the SPECTER of MASSIVE ECONOMIC DESTRUCION AND TOTAL COLLASPE OF AMERICA!
The crumbling empire has depleted the US treasury. As the Congress and White House fight over raising the debt ceiling, the cost of war aggressively erodes any possibility of maintaining stable living standards for the American middle and working classes and heightens growing inequalities between the top 1% and the rest of the American people. Imperial wars are based on the pillage of the US treasury. The imperial state has, via extraordinary tax exemptions, concentrated wealth in the hands of the super-rich while the middle and working classes have been pushed downward, as only low paid jobs are available.The burden of sustaining a declining empire, with its the monstrous growth in military spending, has fallen disproportionately on middle and working class taxpayers and wage earners. The military and financial elites’ pillage of the economy and treasury has set in motion a steep decline in living standards, income and job opportunities.
Even greater blows are to come in the second half 2011: As the
Obama White House expands its imperial interventions in Pakistan, Libya and Yemen, increasing military and USA police-state spending.
Obama is set to reach budgetary agreements with the far right Republicans, which will savage government health care programs, like MEDICARE and MEDICAID, as well as Social Security, the national retirement program. Prolonged wars have pushed the budget to the breaking point, while the deficit undermines any capacity to revive the economy as it heads toward a DESPARATE DEPRESSION!
The entire political establishment is bizarrely oblivious to the fact that their multi-hundred- billion-dollar pursuit of an estimated 50-75 phantom Al Qaeda terrorists in Afghanistan has hastened the disappearance of middle income jobs in the US .
The entire political spectrum has turned decisively to the Right and the Far-Right. The debate between Democrats and Republicans is over whether to slash four trillion or more from the last remnants of our country’s social programs.
The Democrats and the Far-Right are united as they pursue multiple wars while currying favor and funds from upper 0.01% super-rich, financial and real estate moguls whose wealth has grown so dramatically during the crisis!
The burden of sustaining a declining empire, with its the monstrous growth in military spending, has fallen disproportionately on middle and working class taxpayers and wage earners. The military and financial elites’ pillage of the economy and treasury has set in motion a steep decline in living standards, income and job opportunities.
But there is a deep and quiet discomfort within the leading circles of the Obama regime: The “best and brightest” among his top officials are scampering to jump ship before the coming deluge: the Economic Guru Larry Summers, Rahm Emmanuel, Stuart Levey, Peter Orzag, Bob Gates, Tim Geithner and others, responsible for the disastrous wars, economic catastrophes, the gross concentration of wealth and the savaging of our living standards, have walked out or have announced their ‘retirement’, leaving it to the smiling con-men - President Obama and Vice-President ‘Joe’ Biden - and their ‘last and clueless loyalists’ to take the blame when the economy tanks and our social programs are wiped out.
