WHY USA POLITICIANS WANT WAR STALEMATE, NOT VICTORY! 2 Voices Of Reason In The Wilderness Of American Middle East ‘Foreign Policy’: AKA Destabilization, Militarism, War & ‘No Boots On The Ground’ & UNWINNABLE WAR Or Just Plain OPEC Capitalism! Is It A Failed Foreign Policy? No! Only The Naïve & The Mendacious Would Call It That! These Politicians Know What They Are Doing, And They Know The Likely Results. Genocide Is Fine So Long As It’s Not Us! Al Qaeda & The Taliban Were A Dream Come True For George W. Bush! ISIS Or ISIL Is A Dream Come True For Obama! On Top Of That, Now Putin Has Resuscitated That Old Bugaboo, The Russian Hammer & Sickle, To Facilitate American Abominations As ‘Necessary’ If Not Sufficient. Militarism As Solution To Greed Is As Old As Time Itself. Endless Mid East Wars Are Both Unwinnable & Profitable! Why Would America Want To Win Wars & End Wars When It’s Wars That Create Humongous Profits! Kill The ‘Golden Goose’? I Don’t Think So! When Will People Wake Up & Smell The Coffee? From Past History, The Answer To That One Is, ‘Never’!

PHYLLIS BENNIS: Well, I think, clearly, they have sent much of the world—not only the Islamic world, but that’s the part that we’re looking at right now—into far worse than turmoil, into absolute abject tragedy, when we see the results of these wars at the human level, when we see what it’s doing to the social fabric of these societies, that is going to take generations to repair.

I think that one of the things that’s so important, we hear from President Obama, over and over again, there is no military solution. And other times we hear the military side is not enough, it’s not sufficient. That’s where it’s just wrong. The first statement is right: There is no military solution. So when you look at what President Obama is doing militarily, I think it’s important to recognize it’s not just insufficient, it’s making impossible the kinds of diplomatic and negotiated and humanitarian and other kinds of efforts that could have a chance of ending these wars.

So, for example, if you’re in Iraq and the U.S., say, they get it right for one time—this almost never happens, but say they did—they identified a camp of ISIS fighters, there were 20 of them, and they’re really bad guys, they’ve done bad things, they’re going to do more bad things. They send a drone after them. There’s no civilians anywhere in the area. Only those 20 guys get killed. And the response in the U.S. is, “Yeah! We got the bad guys!” The response in Iraq is, “Yes, once again, the U.S. is bombing Sunnis in the interests of the Shia and the Kurds!” Continue reading

“What Did We Do That Provoked Muslim Terrorists To Do What They Do?” – The Pink Elephant In The Room! That’s The Question Our Mainstream Media Has Such Difficulty In Posing Or Analyzing. They Know The Question; They Just Refuse To Ask It! Wouldn’t You Like An Intelligent Analysis & Conclusion To That Q? I Know I Would! Since Nobody Else Will, Tabacco Steps Up To The Mic To Demand An Answer – “What Did We Do That Provoked Muslim Terrorists To Do What They Do?”

Another Blogger’s Deliberately Failed Attempt At Getting An Answer:
“Analysts, including myself, are left speculating about motives. These can relate to terrorists’ personal grievances based in poverty, prejudice, or cultural alienation. Alternately, an intention to change international policy can be seen as a motive: pulling “a Madrid” and getting governments to withdraw their troops from Iraq; convincing Americans to leave Saudi Arabia; ending American support for Israel; pressuring New Delhi to cede control of all Kashmir.

Any of these motives could have contributed to the violence; as London’s Daily Telegraph puts it, problems in Iraq and Afghanistan each added ‘a new pebble to the mountain of grievances that militant fanatics have erected’. Yet neither is decisive to giving up one’s life for the sake of killing others.”

Tabacco: That last sentence is his only salient point in his entire Post. Yet even that leads to more questions – NOT ANSWERS! Continue reading

MILITARY INDUSTRIAL COMPLEX! The Term Was Coined By President Dwight David Eisenhower In His Farewell Address On January 17, 1961. Eisenhower’s Warning Has Been Proven To Be Prescient & Its Effect All Encompassing! Millions Of Foreigners & Thousands Of Americans Have Been Murdered In The Name Of “National Interests”, Which Is Code For “DISASTER CAPITALIST PROFITS”. The Actual “National Interest” Is, Of Course, WAR PROFITS For Exxon, Black Water/Xe & US Presidents – First Post In Tabacco’s ‘Industrial Complex’ Capitalism Series – Part I – UPDATED & COMPLETED 12/01/12

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

The Vast Disparity Between Keynesian Economic Theory/Political Promises And Their Actual Practice In USA! Democrats Often Cannot Keep Theirs Because Republicans OBSTRUCT Anything Designed To Help ‘We The People’ Instead Of The Top 1%; Republicans Keep Their Promises Because They Never Promise ‘We The People’ Anything Anyway! And The Economic Textbooks Are Predicated On A World Dominated By Elite Countries Deploying Capitalism And Violating All Keynesian Tenets; Any Form Of Socialism Is OBSTRUCTED (There’s That Word Againl) Lest Other 3rd World Countries See The Possibilities Not Included Under Capitalism And ‘Domino Theory’ Stampede Over Capitalism On The Road To World Socialism! Why Do We Do Business With Communist China And NOT With Communist Cuba? Because Cuba Is Socialist & China Is Now Capitalist – IT WAS NEVER ABOUT COMMUNISM; IT WAS ALWAYS ABOUT SOCIALISM – Just One More Capitalist LIE!

Let’s analyze our Capitalist Axioms & see how many can actually hold water: Market Self-Correction, Deregulated Capitalism, Work Hard To Achieve, Business Creates Jobs, 2-Party System, One Man – One Vote, Free Trade, Free Enterprise, Lower Taxes, Middleclass Opportunity For All, Business Deregulation Good For All, A-Bomb Saved Lives, ‘National Security’ OPEC Wars, Exclusion of Military Expenditures From Budget, Incorporation, Social Security Failure, Medicare Failure, Public Education, Urban Renewal, Eminent Domain, NAFTA, Democracy, American Justice, Smaller Government, Americanism, & Right-To-Life Ulterior Motive! Economic Growth Forever. Almost NO KEYNESIAN or DEMOCRACY AXIOMS are actually adhered to in the USA! Capitalists give us Platitudes while they Lie, Cheat & Steal from each other and ‘We The People’! Both terms “Political Ethics” and “Economic Truisms” are OXYMORONS! Continue reading
