FAREED ZAKARIA On USA’s ‘PERPETUAL WARS’, “You Know You Are In Trouble When Your Strategy’s Success Produces More Problems Than Its Failure”.

Fareed Zakaria: Certainly, as most administrations would, Obama and Rhodes sought to present their actions in a positive light so Obama congratulates himself for stepping back from the edge of military invention in Syria. He never grapples with the fact that it was his own careless rhetoric about Assad’s fate and red lines that produced the crisis in the first place.

But on the most important issue of substance, Obama is right and his critics are wrong.

The chief lesson for American foreign policy over the last 15 years is that it is much easier to defeat a military opponent in the greater Middle East than to establish political order in these troubled lands. In Iraq, Afghanistan, and Libya, it took just weeks to defeat the old regime. But years later, despite varying approaches, all these countries remain in chaos.

Can anyone seriously argue that a few more troops here or a slightly different strategy there would have created stability and peace when you have instability in all three? Continue reading

NICK TURSE: Well, just this morning—you know, it’s not something I reported on, just something I’ve been following on the news—we see that Kenyan forces that we’ve been backing have set up extensive smuggling networks in Somalia. They seem to have been putting down roots themselves in bases. I noticed that one of them is Kismayo, where the U.S. is supposedly flying drones out of and has a special operations base. That’s now apparently a smuggling hub for the Kenyan military, in league with the terrorist group al-Shabab. They seem to be working in concert to smuggle sugar. There’s also been charcoal smuggling in the region. So—and this is a force that the U.S. has been backing. And yeah, the U.S. has funded the Kenyans so that we wouldn’t have large numbers of troops on the ground. Continue reading

(CNN NEWSROOM WITH BROOK BALDWIN, Sept. 22, 2015)

CAPT. DAN QUINN, U.S. ARMY (RET.): The competition turned physical and I picked him up and threw him on to the ground multiple times and Charles did the same thing. We basically had to make sure that he would – that this was not going to happen again. That he fully understood that if he ever went near that boy or his mother again there was going to be hell to pay.

(END VIDEO CLIP)

BALDWIN: Captain Quinn says he and the other soldier were relieved of their duties shortly afterward. And then there is this. An American father says during his final conversation with his own son, his son who’s a Marine, on the phone before his son was killed, Lance Corporal Greg Buckley Jr. told his father he was troubled by the screams he himself could hear coming from boys being sexually abused by Afghan police officers on a U.S. base. So he is with me now. That Marine’s father is Greg Buckley Sr. The attorney for the Buckley family is Mike Bowie (ph). Continue reading

Howard Zinn, “If one person kills another person, that is murder; but if a government kills 100,000 persons, that is patriotism! And they say we’re disturbing the peace; but there is no peace! What really bothers them is that we’re disturbing the War! I don’t believe it’s possible to be neutral. The world is already moving in certain directions. And to be neutral – to be passive – in a situation like that is to collaborate with whatever is going on.” – ‘You Can’t Be Neutral On A Moving Train’ Continue reading
