You think I’m crazy? It was over years ago? But after all, who is competing for the oil to heat our houses, run our cars, turn the wheels of industry and trucks to deliver food? Why it’s Russia and China, both reconstituted post Cold War One to meet us on the present drawing board for Cold War Two, which will be very cold if they keep getting Iran and other OPEC countries to supply them, outbidding us in the oil marketplace, to power the largest combined population in the world.
Oh, and I did mention our deflating dollar, whose billions in debt China and Russia hold?
Russia has sewn up the Caspian region’s oil and gas, being the big neighbor to the north. China to the East is waiting to suck it up as Iran/Pakistan/China pipelines pour the black gold and gas east not west, null and voiding the purpose of the purported War on Terror, paid for so dearly by 3,000 American citizens, 9/11 being our Pearl Harbor-like inciting incident, to take by force of arms the Midle East’s oil. Ah, but we have Israel to sit shiva with us for the dead in Iraq, Afghanistan, and America, and even to bomb Iran for us. What a boon. Not.
What a bunch of jerks would be more like it, sitting in the White House, with all their neocon friends, Project for the New American Century PNACers, Big Oil billionaires, Defense industrialists, Para-military contractors, Subprime desperados, Money-printing Fed, Tax Cut Zillionaires, Think Tank morons, Conservative Anti-Christs, the whole hoary group, now set to gang bang each other at the annual Bohemian Grove Ritual in northern California. Better them than us. We’ve had enough of their money-wasting orgy …
… For awhile, post WW II we were known as the world’s good guys, the cavalry as Zeros and Panzers had attacked our wagons. What’s happened to us from the OSS on, what hath the CIA wrought? I ask them as one Christian (albeit lapsed) to another (seemingly deranged) Christian-centric group. Why can’t all these brilliant people play straight? Why are they double-thinking, triple-thinking everyone in the Grand Chessboard, as per Zbigniew Bzrezinsky? If, as P.T. Barnum said, “a sucker is born every minute,” they’re born here as well as “over there.” And the suckers for power we have in office are too dangerous to be there.
This is the bottom line of change. We can’t keep turning up the heat and not expect a Cold War to become a Very Hot War. Cooler heads not to preside. As in president, vice president, and on down the line. If Roosevelt had to look the other way at a gathering Japanese fleet in the Pacific and let Pearl Harbor happen, he had a clear and present danger in Europe which, with the help of rich Americans like Prescott Bush, was financed to the teeth for world dominance. Our Pearl Harbor, 9/11, had no clear and present danger. It had a unilateral, preemptive urge to strike and steal power, not unlike the little man with the mustache.
So when we say change, let’s know what we’re going to change to. In the words of that great altruist and close friend of the bin Laden family, ahem, ahem: how about change for real “a kinder, gentler America.” This present one is a one-way ticket to nowhere. (full text).
