To all the warmongers, foreign interventionists, rabid neo-cons, members of the Military Industrial Complex (“MIC”), armchair warriors, chickenhawks, and prepubescent boys still playing wargames with their Xbox, the only question is:
“What is wrong with pursuing global peace?”
Why is the United States of America being led around by the nose by the worst that this country has to offer, in terms of naked aggression and hostility, clandestine operations designed to destabilize and destroy every other nation around us (friends and enemies alike), dumping trillions of dollars in hard-earned tax dollars from the US Citizenry into useless stupid foreign wars and paramilitary operations, borrowing money into oblivion and enslaving the future of our children from the perpetual fiat currency printing Federal Reserve, churning out bunker buster bombs and TOW missiles by the hundreds of thousands, using billions of tons of precious steel which could be used to build bridges, hospitals, and schools, in order to continue to wreak havoc around the globe?
If the last 8 years of the President Obama Administration has taught us one thing, it is that the United States of America has countless internecine problems, issues and imperfections that we need to take care of and iron out first, before we go around policing and lecturing the rest of the world on how they should live.
Barack Obama was like an exfoliate that brought out hundreds of years of anger, festering emotion, class warfare, and stifled expression which truly needed to be aired out once and for all, and not further suppressed.
Additionally, for all of Obama’s faults and missteps in the Middle East (mainly because of the erroneous and politically motivated and “foreign government paid for advice” of his thoroughly corrupted Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and her “mini-me” Victoria “Cookies” Nuland), one of his greatest legacies was by either inadvertently or on purpose, avoiding and stopping World War 3 by enacting the Iran Nuclear Deal, by getting them to disarm without firing a single shot, and by proxy allowing the rise of a multi-polar world wherein different countries, cultures, religions and races could now have a seat at the bargaining table of global affairs, rather than simply the legacy of the colonial masters of yesterday which by and large exploited the third and second worlds in every capacity.
A perfect symbol of this was the rise of the BRICS (Brazil/Russia/India/China/South Africa) Banking System which poses an open challenge to the hegemony of the IMF/World Bank, ushering in healthy competition amongst global central banks to keep each other more honest and competitive, in terms of loans and project finance to the world’s people and countries.
Had the masters of chaos succeeded in getting President Obama to carpet-bomb Iran, this would most certainly have led to World War 3 by forcing Russia, China, Syria, Turkey, Saudi Arabia, Yemen, and other nations to jump into the fray to protect and defend their interests, quickly escalating matters coupled with multiple terrorist attacks all throughout the Middle East, Europe and yes, even in America.
Diplomacy is always the best option, and warfare should be the last choice.
But we as a nation have been too gung-ho and obsessed with destroying other nations and their own sovereignty.
The United States should instead fix all of its problems at home, such as joblessness, poverty, malnutrition, failing infrastructure, poor race relations, corrupt courts and government, broken families, poor educational standards, a $23 trillion dollar debt, and other systematic problems and issues, perhaps use all of its reserves to heal America first, and first use diplomacy and negotiation to solve any and all problems overseas.
The doctrine of foreign intervention “blowback” has yielded great disasters such as September 11.
The routine and constant violations of the “entangling alliances with other nations” doctrine as per Thomas Jefferson has destroyed our civil liberties and constitutional guarantees at home, while earning us myriad enemies abroad.
Live and let live.
Now that Donald Trump is President-Elect, the USA can devote more time to building up America first, rather than selling out the nation and its birthright to the highest bidder – Trump promises to increase jobs, straighten out Obamacare, rebuild infrastructure, pull out of stupid foreign wars, deal decisively with enemies, recalibrate the Middle East and relationships overseas, deal with the Federal Reserve and the $23 trillion dollar debt, simplify extreme over-legislation and over-regulation, and other tasks necessary to make America great again.
