As More U.S. Bombs Drop, Empire Begins Fall

Politics / US Politics Sep 11, 2014 - 03:09 PM GMT

By: Michael_T_Bucci

Politics

On Wednesday evening, September 10, 2014, hours before the thirteenth anniversary of 9/11, President Obama announced his decision to bomb Syria and deploy more troops inside Iraq. While the February events in Kiev could be seen marking the EU's capitulation to neo-fascism in Europe in submission to Washington's hegemonic diktats, Obama's arrogant militancy as presently expressed should be viewed as the beginning of the fall of American Empire. Whether it falls this year, the next, or in three to five years, it will end through military defeat, economic collapse and by forces from within that will - by necessity - fight for self-survival against their own government and their sectarian political oppressors and opponents.  America will then inherit the mantle that Germany endured for over fifty years following World War II. At that, the rotating sphere of world dominance will have completed its cycle. Unipolar will be dead. The sun will have set in the West and risen in the East. Many will die fighting against the inevitable. Many will blame everyone but themselves.


Obama has yet to prove he is "tough" to John McCain, Lindsey Graham, their clones in the administration and media, as well as to the America people who find him "too cautious" according to recent polls. Yet, he has led sheep on the pseudo-Left to join in vitriolic hate and violence inherently found in entrenched hawks and neocons dominating Congress, at editorial desks, at think-tanks, and in the closeted war and accounting rooms of top brass and corporate chieftains. But such was the genius behind promoting Mr. Obama as the preferred Presidential candidate for two terms. He could do, and did, what no other could: He extended and expanded the Bush-Cheney "endless war" paradigm; instituted a totalitarian surveillance state; greatly impaired and impoverished civil rights and liberties; oversaw a historic level of economic disparity; initiated drone warfare; militarized law enforcement; enriched the military-industrial sector; facilitated privatization of government functions; rewarded Wall Street with free money while obstructing judicial actions against criminals in the financial and banking sectors.

There are fewer dissenters in America according to a Washington Post-ABC News poll of September 9 that found "Americans overwhelmingly view Islamic State terrorists as a serious threat to vital U.S. interests and, in a significant shift, widely support airstrikes in Iraq and Syria." The Post noted, "The nation’s increasingly hawkish mood will form part of the backdrop for a speech by President Obama on Wednesday," as indeed it did serve and was also used to justify heightened militancy (as if on cue). [1] The pro-war Washington Post, like its bed-fellow publications The New York Times and Wall Street Journal, first inculcates war fever in its readers; then tests its effectiveness through polling. Once the desired opinion is endorsed by a "majority" the findings are then used by the President to justify actions that without preliminary media propaganda might have been perceived differently and produced dissimilar results. The process is akin to the "informational merry-go-round" media game in Ukraine, as Russia terms it. To avoid being seen as the author or originator of a news story meant for Western syndication, the U.S. Government will request a Ukraine official or news organization to report it first; they, not the true original authors, are then quoted in the U.S. media as the source of the story. Here, the polling participants are used as cover on the merry-go-round. Unlike Ukraine, polling participants are not privy (cognizant) to being propagandized, inculcated and programmed beforehand by the very news agency conducting the poll. However, though there are scriptwriters, those behind the present pro-war campaigns against targets in the mid-east and against Russia remain covert. They are neither the Post nor Obama who also are on a merry-go-round. (Look deeper.)

America's goal now is to subjugate all nations to hot-iron rule instituted by Washington, the Pentagon, the intel community, by the corrupt economic forces of a capitalism become bereft of any claims to free markets, liberty and economic equity, and - one must now conclude - endorsed by a majority of Americans.

Mr. Obama achieved what no other President could achieve: He amassed almost all Americans to support ever-widening war, militancy, violence, technological totalitarianism, assassinations of foreign leaders, become infected with government induced war fever over Ukraine, Russia, Iraq, Iran, Syria - injections administered by force without consent of the governed; behind a perpetual mirage of unchallenged, unproven claims and/or outright lies. Whether one calls this Empire and a majority of its citizens immoral, amoral or evil, "blow-back" eventually thwarts conceit and turns arrogance into humiliation - without exception.

In his warnings, Obama said: "This is a core principle of my presidency: If you threaten America, you will find no safe haven." What is and who is a threat to you, Mr. Obama, and the exceptional Empire? The citizen who writes Letters of dissent to the local newspaper? The rare neighbor who doesn't fly the American flag to express disapproval over your policies and brutal militancy? The reporter who dares ask you to prove your allegations before justifying accusations against mid-east sovereigns, Russia or China? The whistleblower who wishes to protect citizens against abuses by government and corporations? The few member countries and segments of others in the EU who don't fear you and prefer to maintain economic and diplomatic relations with countries you have sanctioned? The BRICS whose alliance threatens your reserve currency and acts without your permission? Are these your enemies? Or are your enemies the million dead Iraqis and others strewn across the mid-east whose thoughts of revenge are broadcast to earth from their ethers to inspire more terrorists (actually counter-terrorists) for settling the score against your Empire of violence? Pity, such threatening souls from beyond the threshold are now out reach by you, your drones and your NATO. On the other hand, you are in their reach.

* * * *

America has engaged in untold wars, occupations, assassinations, regime-change coups, intractable racism and sociopathic aggression against its ever expanding list of enemies - which will come to include many within its borders - that it could be described as drunk with megalomania; lawless beyond control; and marching with increased momentum toward its inevitable denouement.

At the end, as it was in the beginning, it will be remembered that no person, nation or world has ever achieved the goal presently set by America. None has ever been above the laws of both God and Man.

The sun will have set in the West and risen in the East. Many will die fighting against the inevitable. Many will blame everyone but themselves.

But the world will not end. Only the world we now know will end. But this world must be dismantled first.

And that is what is now occurring.
