It looks like the big war has been put on hold but the misnamed ‘civil war’ in Syria continues. Without the recruitment of outsiders the so called rebels in Syria would be nothing. There would be no fighting. So who is going to pull the plug? For all the talk of chemical weapons, the US main stream media generally refuses to discuss where these outsiders are coming from and who is behind them. Yes, it’s the usual suspects, including Saudi Arabia and Turkey, doing the recruitment, playing to the lowest common denominator and getting brainwashed ‘Jihadists’ to do the dirty work. It’s much how the US military works here.
Our intervention in Iraq continues to pay dividends, mainly to keep that country weak and stirred up, mostly for the continued benefit of Israel. More than 4,000 people have been killed in attacks since the start of April, including 804 just in August with another reported 53 dead in bombings today. As with the plan for Syria, Iraq is splintered. One has to wonder if it is still paid outsiders who are perpetuating the violence.
Money greases the skids and no small amount is funneled out of Afghanistan by the CIA through their banker accomplices from the ongoing opium production. Marijuana plays an important part these days too.
It is now an open secret, and everyone knows it, as to who runs the largest global business of narcotics smuggling and weapons trade. Dig down just a little of these areas and you’ll find the American CIA sitting behind the scenes, smiling broadly and exposing widely its ugly teeth. There are certain local aides in various countries, which also play as the front men. We all know as to who urged and supported the Afghans to restart growing poppy after the fall of Taliban regime.
Besides padding the pockets of more than a few criminals inside and outside of the US, no doubt the drug money is being used to buy killers for destabilization of much of the Middle East and Northern Africa. Without this blood money, well, there would be less blood flowing.
All that being said, without the outside influence on the US of Israel and their lackeys, things would be moving at a much slower pace. Apologists will say AIPAC’s setback to get an attack on Syria shows that their power is waning. Let’s not get too carried away with that line of thought. Money and blackmail still are in play and will be until ‘the lobby’ is totally dismantled.
What is most unusual is that the outsiders who appear to be doing the most for the average American who does not want World War III is Putin and Russia. My how the worm turns.
No time to celebrate yet. We are still far from safe. As long as central bankers control the money, war merchants need to move their wares and politician’s loyalty is not to the people of their country…..we still have much work to do.
