Every Country has its History, Except America that has a Criminal Record
SITREP by Scott
A day after I tried American food in the first time, I woke up covered in eczema, something I never had before. Thinking that I got infected with some horrible tropical disease during my flight, I went to see a doctor who explained to me that I had an allergic reaction to food and gave me some meds. The idea that one has to take meds to suppress immune system just to be able to eat poisonous food was bizarre to me. Any attempts to talk to other people about this were futile because they thought that it was weird that I found it bizarre. For them it was “natural” to take meds just to have a slice of bread with butter and a chocolate candy. The majority of Americans have food allergies, they were saying. It’s not food allergy, I remember suggesting. It’s a reaction to poisonous substances in your food. Turned out I didn’t know what I was talking about because as they informed me the American food was the best, cleanest and most healthiest in the world!
The first time in my life I encountered the Matrix, or the fog of false ideas and beliefs that the Western people, especially Americans mistake for the real world. In this case, they find it completely natural to eat toxic substances as food and to take medicine to keep their skin from falling off as the result of this toxicity.
I recall this every time I see statements about the American military being the best in the world.
These last two weeks we all got a thrilling opportunity to witness how the American political and military elites are literally undoing each other, and not in a good way. However, one thing is to read about this on thesaker, and it’s a completely different story to hear the same statements coming from the horse’s mouth. The horse in this case is Rosa Brooks, a former senior advisor to Under Secretary of Defense Michele Flournoy. One of the Three Harpies who are about to conduct the next Hunger Games: “Hillary Clinton as President, Michele Flournoy as head of the Pentagon and – the most terrifying words in the English language — Secretary of State Victoria Nuland.”
Rosa Brooks just gave a birth to a book about the place of the US military in the country and in the world. The book is called ‘ How Everything Became War and the Military Became Everything: Tales From the Pentagon. It’s being peddled by such neo-liberal war hawks like Lawfare Institute and Brookings.
The book is about, well…. everything, like ” security issues, piracy, military detention, strategic deafness about Africa, stability operations, drones, covert operations, cyber, nonlethal weapons, the militarization of foreign policy, and much more.”
However, to us the most relevant is that Rosa Brooks outline in her book “the structure of national security decision-making on a day-to-day basis and the many offices of government and officials—far beyond simply the Department of Defense and a handful of intelligence agencies—involved in making them.”
That confirms my suspicions that the US military perform services for a multitude of the private institutions and persons, and that it, in its essence, is the very large mercenary armed formation that doesn’t have a unified command. In the US the relations of its armed forces and its civil authorities are marred by mistrust and misunderstandings at the senior levels of government.
Just one episode: “an account of dealing with a civilian counterpart on the National Security Council, for example, who simply called up one day asking—telling—the Pentagon to shift a surveillance drone platform from whatever it was doing for Central Command, to monitor political events in Kyrgyzstan bears reading in full (pp. 307-311). The NSC staffer evidently thought calling for shifting a surveillance drone and its support was something akin to ordering up a Big Mac; moreover, he seemed not to understand that neither he nor Rosa had the authority to order Central Command to do this.
Her experience illustrates that there are civilian officials who should (and need to) know better—not only clueless as to how the military works but also having a skewed understanding of what “civil-military relations” really is supposed to mean. And that’s just within the national security community of the executive branch; the gaps in understanding and trust are often even larger when extended to the whole of government.”
After proving beyond the reasonable doubts that the US military serves many masters, and being run by the multitudes of the independent “command centers,” Rosa Brooks went on stating that Americans view the military “as the only reasonably well-functioning public institution we have these days [and,] as a result, Americans increasingly treat the military as an all-purpose tool for fixing anything that happens to be broken.”
This book actually puts the end of our argument about the extension of the Presidential executive power. The US president doesn’t make any decisions and doesn’t have any executive power when it comes to the US military, contrary to the US Constitution. This makes the US armed forces unconstitutional armed formation.
Another Rose Brooks’ provision that of interest to everyone in the world is that the American society and military entered the state of perpetual war.
“How Everything Became War’s central premise here is that, historically, the human condition has typically been a binary state, that is, at either war or peace. This circumstance, she contends, is fundamentally different today because of the rise of potent non-state belligerents and technology-empowered terrorists. She makes the not-implausible argument that since today we live in a world that is not quite peace and not quite war, current law is inadequate, because it grounded in an unrealistic binary. She contends that today nations seek to implement mechanistically either the peacetime legal regime or the war convention, despite neither paradigm quite applying to contemporary reality. This leads her to advocate some sort of new, hybrid set of laws to address this blurriness.“
For this, of course, she blames Russia.
Completely in accord with the above-mentioned book, just was announced that a heavy-armored brigade combat team (ABCT) of the US Army will arrive in Europe at the start of 2017, part of a Pentagon military buildup ostensibly aimed to attack Russia at some point.
On October 4th, Brzezinski, who thought to be long dead and buried, came to life somewhat in a form of a tweet:
“In its waning months, Obama admin should privately reiterate to Russia that any Baltic incursion would mean war. Not a threat, simply fact.”
On his twitter profile Brzezinski is photographed gnawing on its own upper extremity. I guess that’s what the undead do for sustenance. That and drinking blood of the innocent.
We know this psy-op formula to always blame Russia in what the US plans to do itself. There were so many talks about the Russia “invading the Baltics” the three states that were formed on the historically Russian Baltic regions in the 90s. These countries have been de-populated after they became occupied by NATO, and economically dependent on vanishing Russian trade and the hangouts from the EU. Russia spends billions on building new ports and railroads to avoid the Baltics, especially when it comes to oil and gas transfer. In the next two years these “countries” will completely lose any revenues from Russia using their ports. By 2020, the EU also plans to discontinue its hangouts. Add to this the fact that the Baltic “states” are being run by the outright Nazis and NATO, and you get the picture of why they are chosen by the Washington and Pentagon’s next region of anti-Russian provocation.
I believe that this provocation will start with the groups of specially trained people to stage a civil unrest pretending to be the “Russian patriots.”
This Brzezinski’s tweet and the large armed forces of the US military, NATO forces, forces of non-NATO members like Finland, all concentrating in this corner of the word tell us that something big is about to take place there, and while everyone is looking at Syria, we have to keep our watch on the Baltics…
