(First my same comment as here: Rooted both deeply in the Turkish nation, none of the two parties is able to give up and Turkey has a real chance to become the next Syria. Now watch the line Iraq-Syria-Turkey and recognize: the Rainmakers/the owners of the Financial System no longer need Iran as tool to destabilise the world and reduce us to our daily Rice Bowl – and Iran suddenly may loose it’s smell of being the bad boy – Heidi).
Greater US intervention in Syria looms. Manufactured threats facilitate doing so. Replacing Assad with puppet leadership is planned. Independent governments aren’t tolerated. More on that below.
Fact: Washington bears full responsibility for Middle East/North Africa/Central Asian wars. Resource control is prioritized. So is imperial dominance to Russian and Chinese borders.
Fact: State terrorism is official US policy. Obama’s waging multiple direct and proxy wars. He’s doing so lawlessly. He’s ravaging humanity in the process.
Washington, its allies, and proxies use chemical and other illegal weapons. Permanent wars reflect longstanding US policy. Americans are deceived and lied to. Truth is verboten … //
… DPA was part of a broad civil defense and war mobilization effort. It contained sweeping unconstitutional powers. In March 2012, Obama reinstituted them.
Section 201 covers “Priorities and Allocations Authorities. (a) The authority of the President conferred by section 101 of the Act, 50 USC App. 2071, to require acceptance and priority performance of contracts or orders (other than contracts of employment) to promote the national defense over performance of any other contracts or orders, and to allocate materials, services, and facilities as deemed necessary or appropriate to promote the national defense, is delegated to the following agency heads:
- (1) the Secretary of Agriculture with respect to food resources, food resource facilities, livestock resources, veterinary resources, plant health resources, and the domestic distribution of farm equipment and commercial fertilizer;
- (2) the Secretary of Energy with respect to all forms of energy;
- (3) the Secretary of Health and Human Services with respect to health resources;
- (4) the Secretary of Transportation with respect to all forms of civil transportation;
- (5) the Secretary of Defense with respect to water resources; and
- (6) the Secretary of Commerce with respect to all other materials, services, and facilities, including construction materials.”
Rule of law principles no longer matter. Diktat power rules. Government agencies enforce it. Alleged national defense priorities subvert all others.
At times of economic crisis and/or political scandals, diverting attention abroad is commonplace. Fear is heightened. Enemies are created. Public sentiment is manipulated. It’s done to prioritize addressing them. Wars follow.
Rallying round the flag works. In 1917, propaganda turned pacifist Americans into raging German haters. In December 1941, isolationist Americans supported war on Japan.
Post-9/11, waging war on Afghanistan got wide backing. So did eliminating nonexistent Saddam and Gaddafi threats. Most Americans oppose war on Syria.
Polls show interesting findings. Results depend on questions asked. Wording is important.
When asked if Washington should intervene in Syria, Americans oppose doing so decisively. Only 26% approve. Another 64% oppose.
When asked whether to intervene in response to alleged Assad chemical weapons use, results change dramatically. Only 30% oppose. Another 58% express support.
Mind manipulation works. Waging wars require selling them. Doing so is prelude for what’s planned. Obama’s heading for greater Syrian intervention.
He’s got much more than that in mind. It bears repeating. The road to Tehran runs through Damascus. All independent governments are targeted.
Vassal state replacements are sought. A permanent state of war exists. It rages against humanity. Good endings aren’t likely.
