This past week's congressional hearing with Admiral Mullen (US Joint Chief of Staff) was shocking. The Admiral bluntly declared that Pakistan's ISI had been supporting the Haqhani clan, while it bombed US targets inside Afghanistan. Only 2 months ago, Osama Bin Laden was found in a home in the heart of a city dominated by Pakistan's Military Academy (sort of like West Point in the U.S.). Meanwhile hundreds of billions of dollars are being spent anually subsidizing Pakistan's military and waging war against an amorphous enemy. Reports from Afghanistan suggest that the U.S. military is paying trucking companies to move its goods arround the country; and these trucking companies are in turn financing the same war against U.S. military targets. America is basically making it profitable for the enemy to keep fighting. America is bank rolling its enemies!
Nightmares have been created in a twisted media world - attacking soviets, communists, fanatic islamists, you name it ...and then America's assets get leveraged to the hilt by America's so called Allies. Take the case of Britain's coniving leverage of American assets. The U.S. paid the bill basically for the invasion of Iraq; and now British oil companies have the lion share of Iraqi oil reserves. America defeated and broke up the Soviet Union and British companies have the lion share of Caspian Oil Reserves from former Soviet Republics like Azerbaijan.
Events on 9/11 have become the pretext for the establishment of new nightmares for America's public decrying all moslems. In a poor economy, Americans are so conveniently distracted by constant news stories of terrorism. Bin Laden killed, American Jihadist in Yemen Killed ... and Saudi Arabian despots are painted as stallwarth American Allies, and partners in the war against terrorism. A pile shit piece of dessert land on the Mediteranean with no resources, called invariably Israel or Palestine becomes a strategic point for America's most important alliance in the Middle East. Meanwhile America keep funneling billions of dollars of aid to Israel, guarantees its loans, and fights billion dollar wars to protect Israel...
All logic is lost, in a war against the big bad wolf - terrorists. There is no cost benefit analysis. No rational thinking ...just emotional wastage of tax payer money. Military expenditure becomes the highest and best use of tax payer dollars; and in turn despots, militarists, oil companies, and shady "allies" are subsidized to sustain what is obviously an unsustainable political and economic agenda.
The big question is when will Americans wake up? And when they do finally wake up ...what will that spell for those that are twisting this "rattle snake"? One day the Pakistani's will get their hands slapped and there will be "change" they have "never" imagined. One day, the Jewish lobby in America will get "cornered" and have some explaining to do for how 2% of America's population dominate America's political and economic processes in the country (controlling ownership all major law firms, 40% of American net worth, 100 Billionaires etc. etc.) ...
Don't get me wrong, I was happy Saddam Hussein was toppled, I was happy when the Soviet Union crumbled, I am happy everytime the forces of freedom and democracy push out across the world. But these false nightmare scenarios that leverage US resources have become a little exaggerated and I think Americans are smarter than people realize. This rattle snake can turn around and bite very quickly and cheaply. The money spigot can be shut off very quickly. Those espousing these nightmare stories will soon have their own life's nightmare stories to tell. Israelis' need to make peace. Britain needs to find some alternative to Big Oil to replace the 30% of its GDP that BP and Shell support. Saudi Arabia's royal family need to set up a holiday home outside Saudi Arabia, for they will be gone soon enough. Pakistan's ISI heads, need to scamble out quickly. The Mullahs in Iran, need to set up their homes in Canada sooner rather than later (their apartments in Damascus will be over run soon).
The days of crying wolf, and asking for America's public support will end. Things need to change. This nonesense is simply unsustainable. Americans, Europeans, Iranians ...the whole world can afford it any more. Its time for a more decent world.
