The USG Brings Its Wars Home – LewRockwell.com

April 19, 2014 2 comments

After an argument about a leave denied, Specialist Ivan Lopez pulled out a .45-caliber Smith & Wesson handgun and began a shooting spree at Fort Hood, America’s biggest stateside base, that left three soldiers dead and 16 wounded. When he did so, he also pulled America’s fading wars out of the closet.

This time, a Fort Hood mass killing, the second in four and a half years, was committed by a man who was neither a religious nor a political “extremist.” He seems to have been merely one of America’s injured and troubled veterans who now number in the hundreds of thousands.

NEW YORK — Despite an improving economy, U.S. veterans of the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan are still having difficulty finding jobs – and their unemployment rate of just under 10 percent is considerably higher than the national average. But a number of companies are committed to making things better.

Readers, let’s take a moment to salute a true workhorse. In the world of war machines, the expensive and high-tech items get all the attention and budget—drones, anti-ship ballistic missiles, cyber warfare, and the like.

 

 

But, on the battlefields of the twenty-first century, a humble and under-rated weapon has quietly showed up these expensive attention-hogs: the pickup truck.

Part 1: How Americans lost their country like having the rug of their republic pulled right out from under them.

“The Americans cannot even conduct a military operation there,” said General Salami of Iran’s Revolutionary Guard. “The conditions and the factors that facilitate the exercise of military power for them have for years been destroyed and today they (the Americans) are in an erosion of political, cultural, financial and military power.”

If you’ve seen the recent big screen stories of US Navy SEALS in Afghanistan, in Lone Survivor and Zero Dark Thirty, you are no doubt struck by the sacrifices these elite warriors make on the modern battlefield and the impeccable examples of heroism these movies have portrayed — not propaganda but truth.

Towards a World War III Scenario: Breaking the “Big Lie” | Global Research

January 15, 2014 1 comment

The following excerpt is from “Towards a World War III Scenario: The Dangers of Nuclear War“, the latest title by best-selling author Michel Chossudovsky:

The US has embarked on a military adventure, “a long war”, which threatens the future of humanity. US-NATO weapons of mass destruction are portrayed as instruments of peace. Mini-nukes are said to be “harmless to the surrounding civilian population”. Pre-emptive nuclear war is portrayed as a “humanitarian undertaking”.

http://www.globalresearch.ca/wp-content/uploads/2012/04/129753.jpg

While one can conceptualize the loss of life and destruction resulting from present-day wars including Iraq and Afghanistan, it is impossible to fully comprehend the devastation which might result from a Third World War, using “new technologies” and advanced weapons, until it occurs and becomes a reality.

In the 1970′s, the civilized world criticized the Soviet Union for their designation of a new mental illness called “Political Schizophrenia”. Soviet style political schizophrenia was deemed to be inappropriate by ICD-9 because the Russians were labeling anyone who disagreed with the government as being mentally ill.http://thecommonsenseshow.com/siteupload/2014/01/gun-confiscation.png

And in Mother Russia, if you were deemed to be mentally ill, you were subsequently “treated” in the Gulag.

How Will Our Troops Ever Get Home?… “I do not know how, I just have glimpses of our troops in Afghanistan who will be utterly stranded, without resupply, if there is trouble on the home front.” | Dave Hodges – The Common Sense Show

military vs obama

New Year’s Day was supposed to be the one day I would be able to sleep in but I had a dream last night in which a question that I have been thinking about is resulting in a series of reoccurring dreams over the past several weeks. I feel compelled to write about the content of these dreams because I am gravely concerned for our troops who are stationed overseas.

Having grown up the son of Navy officer, I have a confessed affinity for the men and women in our military and the sacrifices they make to protect us. I have seen up close and personal how brave and how dedicated our soldiers are and when I my dreams tell me how much danger they are in, it brings me great pain.

I do not know how, I just have glimpses of our troops in Afghanistan who will be utterly stranded, without resupply, if there is trouble on the home front.

If this administration is successful in launching a false flag attack which results in martial law and the martial law, imposed by DHS and foreign troops is opposed by our military, I am left to wonder what will happen to our troops which are stationed in Afghanistan and our other foreign bases around the world?

The recent Robert Levinson scandal, evidencing “rogue” CIA operations, is being quickly shoved under the rug. Considering the CIA is an organization that openly runs “secret” prisons, assassination teams and a fleet of terror drones, that when they aren’t blowing up wedding parties in Yemen are running drugs out of Afghanistan, what can a “rogue” operation mean?

Is there actually something worse than the pattern of unilateral lawlessness that the CIA and other US agencies admit to on a daily basis?

BACKGROUND

Since 2004, the CIA has been largely privatized, under control of extremist political groups in the US and working against national interests. It has made the United States feared, not as a competent enemy but rather as a nation under the control of criminal elements willing to use any and all capabilities, military, diplomatic or scientific, on behalf of bizarre apocalyptic theories or corporate greed.

Recent discoveries in the Caucuses that American medical and agricultural research facilities are, in fact, biological and chemical weapons facilities adds only one “tile” to a mosaic whose pattern is more than clear.

Let’s look at “Levinson.”

Real stories seldom get out and when they do, they are “spun” into an unrecognizable monstrosity and planted with conspiracy theories or unfounded allegations. Such is the nature of the “new” mainstream media.

Were it ever told, the real story, the real threat to the United States and the real threat to nations that are subject to American clandestine operations has been the full and unlimited penetration of every command authority and agency.

When America attacks, no one can be sure if the order came from Washington, Tel Aviv, Zurich or Wall Street.

LEVINSON COVERUP

The coverup of the recent Levinson CIA scandal, in itself, may seem minor as has the firing of dozens of high…………

Obama’s Military Purge… “Not only is the Obama administration apparently on a mission to undermine the integrity of the military in this way, but it has also revealed itself to be entirely intolerant of dissent of any kind. Whether it is reporters or domestic opposition groups such as the Tea Party, Obama has made clear he will aggressively pursue anyone who defies his agenda. Now it seems that chilling message his been sent to the military as well.”

……….The firing of military leaders goes much further than top generals, however. On its Facebook page, Breitbart.com compiled a list of more than 197 military commanders, mostly at the rank of Colonel or above, who have been purged by the Obama administration since 2009.

According to military.com, allegations of sexual misconduct account for the firing of 30 percent of military commanders over the past eight years. That figure that increases to 40 percent when “ethical lapses” such as sexual assault and harassment, pornography, drugs and drinking are lumped together. But there are other dubious reasons why these commanders have been terminated, ranging from unspecified dereliction of duty, to improper saluting.

The administration’s planned strike on Syria is increasingly opposed by many in a U.S. military coping with the scars of two long wars, a rapidly shrinking budget and soldiers saying we’re “tired, stretched thin and broke.”That sentiment was expressed by an active-duty soldier with a rank of Sergeant First Class in an email to Rep.

Sgt.

In a story that has remained largely under the mainstream media radar, Congress announced late last month that it would finally investigate the Aug. 6, 2011 helicopter crash in Afghanistan that resulted in 38 deaths, including 22 members of SEAL Team 6, made famous three months earlier when they killed Osama Bin Laden.

Grieving family members insist that soldiers in the elite unit were placed in unnecessary danger by the recklessness of the Obama administration, whose actions they characterized as criminal. “We’re going to dive into this,” said Rep. Jason Chaffetz (R-UT), chairman of the House Oversight and Government Reform subcommittee on National Security.

Not long after I left Afghanistan in September 2010, a young Lieutenant and a graduate of the US Military Academy at West Point wrote to me concerned that the Army has yet to grasp all of the elements of leadership needed for the challenges of the 21st century. She wrote:

“I think that there are serious problems with the culture of Army leadership: close-mindedness, careerism, an aversion to innovation or creativity born of the fallacy that everything can fit into a step-by-step procedure, and a task-oriented mindset that creates an atmosphere of anti-intellectualism…and not only those who can think, but those who possess the moral courage to stand up for the hard truths that their bosses are unwilling to accept. I think this is going to be especially important as we transition away from Iraq and Afghanistan and attempt to prepare for unknown future conflicts.”

See Source“In the early nineteen eighties the Pentagon started handing out free equipment to 17,000 police agencies across the country. You’re talking about peacemakers that have turrets, assault vehicles, armors for the police officers, Kevlar helmets, assault rifles, black-hawk helicopters.

You have fifty police agencies that have black-hawk helicopters now. What’s happened is they have militarized the police and the police as some Army officers have told me is that, once you put that gear on, and some are wearing masks now by the way, which is pretty far out, that is what they do in Afghanistan, you can’t see who you are up against.

The preamble to the Constitution states that one of the reasons it was ordained and established was to help provide for the common defense. Of the eighteen paragraphs in article I, section 8, of the Constitution, six of them relate in some way to the war, the military, or the militia.

The budgets passed earlier this year by the Republican-controlled House and Democratic-controlled Senate each called for spending about $6 trillion on national defense over the next ten years. This is even though, according to Treasury Department data, “Over the past ten fiscal years, inflation-adjusted Defense Department spending has increased by approximately 54 percent.”

Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel warned on Monday that U.S. troops are “close to the breaking point,” after many deployments — and Congress risks worsening the situation if it doesn’t help the Pentagon with its budget.

 

“Our people are strong and resilient after 12 years of war, but they are under stress — and so are the institutions that support them,” Hagel told the Veterans of Foreign Wars at the group’s annual convention in Louisville, Ky.

(Col Sellin) Paul Ryan’s Immigration Smoke and Mirrors ~ Family Security Matters

July 23, 2013 1 comment

by LAWRENCE SELLIN, PHD July 23, 2013

On August 22, 2012, Congressman Paul Ryan (R-WI), then the Republican candidate for Vice President, implied to talk show host Hugh Hewitt that he ran “marathons” and that his best time was an exceptional “two hour and fifty-something.”

According to Runner’s World, however, Ryan has only run one as a 20-year-old, in the 1990 Duluth, Minnesota Grandma’s Marathon, which he completed in a more modest 4 hours, 1 minute, and 25 seconds.

An occasional exaggeration of our accomplishments is a human frailty and most often harmless. We have all done it at one time or another.

A Marine who was fined and demoted for urinating on Taliban corpses in Afghanistan in 2011 says he would do it again.

 

“I regret maybe any repercussions it might have had on the Marines. But do I regret doing it? Hell no,” Sgt. Joseph Chamblin told WSOC-TV in Charlotte, N.C., adding that he would do it again.

 

The infamous incident was videotaped and uploaded to YouTube last year, becoming international news and raising fears of retaliation by Afghan troops against their coalition trainers.

 

“These were the same guys that were killing our family, killing our brothers,” said Sgt. Chamblin, who was on a mission to stop Taliban insurgents from making roadside bombs.

In order to deliver on the Fundamental Transformation of America, President Barack Obama must first smash to smithereens the image of America as World Superpower.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

That’s why he’s been spending so much of his time gutting the military.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Parachuted into power by archenemies of the USA, Obama holds a special disdain for American military forces, going so far as to replace them with his own private one. The bodies of approximately 1,541 soldiers were returned home under flag-draped coffins on Obama’s watch. That’s in part because Obama has continued to send American troops into theaters of war booby-trapped by lax rules of engagement where the only tragic outcome is their own maiming and death.

 

The image of the American soldier as sentinel has long been cherished world wide.

 

By gutting the military, Obama achieves his coveted, single-minded goal of shredding America’s long standing image as World Superpower.

Obama’s war on our fundamental rights is devastating. The enemedia performs like state-run media and covers for this incredible rout. It is shocking. And in all of these grotesque anti-American maneuvers, Obama and his thugs are always using Orwellian language. ‘Operation Vigilant Eagle’ criminalizes free speech and targets our nation’s best — our vets.

Veterans are being singled out and arrested and labelled as mentally sick for criticizing Obama. Obama created this to stop criticism of him and his administration.

How many Americans have heard of Extortion 17? Extortion 17 was the call sign for the Chinook helicopter shot down in Afghanistan on the night of August 6, 2011. Killed in that crash were 25 special ops forces, including 15 members of Seal Team 6, 5 national Guard troops and 8 Afghans.

Today, the families of the military killed in that crash held a press conference to lay out the coverup by Obama and the military that has gone on since that crash. The video of the press conference can be found hereI watched the live stream of the press conference, admittedly crying throughout. Then the point came that the tears turned into white hot anger. Every American citizen must watch this video. The major Obama regime coverups did not occur only in Fast and Furious, the New Black Panther voter intimidation case and Benghazi.

Fox News’ Megan Kelly interviewed the parents of SEAL Team 6 member Aaron Vaughn who perished in the tragic crash of a CH-47 helicopter on August 06 2011 in Afghanistan. During this interview the Vaughs stated that this crash was a direct result of traitorous rules of engagement ordered by the Obama administration that have consistently proven deadly to our troops (It should be noted here that “Over Twice as Many U.S. Soldiers Have Died in Afghanistan Under Obama In 3 1/2 Years Than Did Under Bush in 8 Years..”)

Islamist Imam praying over our soldiers at Bagram Air Base

At the beginning of the video is footage of the Islamist Imam praying over our soldiers at Bagram Air Base. Of course he prays in Arabic, but in the English translation he sent our heroes into eternal hell as infidels while praising the Islamist relationship with our country. You read that right, and our Government and our military let that happen.

This operation reads like a set up from the beginning. All the Special Ops forces were packed into one National Guard Chinook. There was no escort for the Seals that night, no pathfinder, and conveniently the “eye in the sky” (drone) didn’t work. The seven members of the Afghan military that were to accompany our service members were switched out just prior to take off. The names of the seven Afghans appearing on the flight manifesto were not the seven that boarded that helicopter on the night of August 6, 2011.

Today three families of Navy SEAL Team VI special forces servicemen, along with one family of an Army National Guardsman, appeared at a press conference to disclose never before revealed information about how and why their sons along with 26 others died in a fatal helicopter crash in Afghanistan on August 6, 2011. This was just months after the successful raid on the Bin Laden compound in Pakistan.

The Convenient Myth of al-Qaida And the gangland-style execution of the retired bin Laden ~ “The Arab ‘Che Guevera’ Is Dead But His Ideas Live…” Article by Eric Margolis

May 5, 2013 1 comment

Two years ago this week, US special forces shot and killed Osama bin Laden, the world’s most wanted man.American TV is filled with chest-thumping and flag-waving about how bin Laden was hunted down and executed.

For most Americans, bin Laden was the acme of evil and author of the 9/11 attacks that killed 3,000 people. Good riddance.Hunting “bad guys” is a venerable American tradition from the days of the Wild West and the Roaring 20’s: Billy the Kid, Pancho Villa, Bonnie and Clyde, John Dillinger.

The TV program “America’s Most Wanted” remains one of the nation’s most popular programs. Osama bin Laden was the ultimate most wanted.However, this simplistic “good guys v. bad guys” tale remains troubled by the facts. Why, for example, was a clearly retired bin Laden living without bodyguards in a villa in Abbottabad, Pakistan?

DHS training officer Humberto Medina pointed out that “the Army faces known enemies in numbers far smaller than we have to consider. I mean, Afghanistan’s population is tiny compared to that of the United States. And the Army can supplement with aerial and artillery bombardment. We don’t have that capacity at this time.”

Medina also suggested that “Army troops are better trained and more accurate shooters than the majority of those we’ve recruited for Homeland Security. So it stands to reason that we’d need to fire more rounds to hit any given target, whether it be in a training exercise or, heaven forbid, suppressing an insurrection. In a nation with over 300 million potential enemies an inventory of billions of bullets doesn’t seem unreasonable to me.”
