You’ve heard it said that “the truth hurts” and most often that is true as we tend to live in our little self-created fantasy-lands where everything is ok and has a happy ending. However, the reality is that everything is never ok and seldom does everything have a happy ending. That’s just reality and today more than ever the US and the West need a serious REALITY CHECK! Here’s a bit of truth that America needs to swallow:
The US regime is incompetent, irresponsible, lying, hypocritical, and terminally arrogant
These accusations against the US were made recently by Russian President Vladimir Putin at the UN and by saying these words he did what no other leader has done. He spoke the TRUTH! Putin simply said what everyone already knows and by speaking them he just verified what many in the world today thought and have been thinking for a very long time now. Like I said, “the truth hurts.”
The link below is to an article published by the Greenville Post recently. It’s well worth a read as it explains much about US foreign policy or the lack thereof.
There’s also another article about the US coming to the breaking point which is also well worth a read. In that article Sam Gerrans continues his assessment of America domestically and internationally. America is a boiling pot and I’m sure that most of us know it is a boiling pot on the verge of overflowing which means there won’t be a happy ending.
The truth of the matter is that the Fascist Global Corporatist have now brought us to a state of perpetual war. We see it all over the world and, sadly, America is either directly or indirectly behind it! We have pursued a “foreign policy” in which “might is right” and it is quickly bringing America and the entire West, for that matter, to a point of self-destruction domestically and internationally.
Ancient Rome was once powerful and highly respected. Over time the Roman Empire began to decline due to misguided policies foreign and domestic, economic decline, and corruption brought about by greed and the surrender of morals and traditional values. The demise of the Roman Empire didn’t take long. The empire ended and that once powerful and influential empire was brought to its knees and entered into the realms of extinction. The barbarians came crashing through the gates and the once powerful Rome could not stop them. Many comparisons have been drawn between the US and the ancient Roman Empire and it does in fact appear that the US is moving down the same road towards extinction, sadly.
There is a bully on every block and in every schoolyard. He’s physically strong but most often mentally weak. He’s corrupt and lacks any real morals or values and somewhere deep down inside he knows it. He thinks that by bullying others he can get what he wants and that strategy works fine for a time. BUT, there ALWAYS comes a day when someone challenges the bully and calls him out in front of the entire school. Someone who simply speaks the truth about the bully and exposes him as an “naked emperor.” That’s what Putin has done! He’s exposed the US as a “naked emperor” and it’s not a surprise to anyone because most people in the world have already figured it out. The fact of the matter is that the US strategy of “might is right” is no longer working and everyone knows this except America, apparently.
We’ve cast diplomacy out the door in favor of using our military to get what we want and all under the guise of promising “freedom and democracy.” Yet, Afghanistan doesn’t have freedom and democracy. Iraq doesn’t. Libya doesn’t. Egypt doesn’t. In fact, out of all the places we’ve been with our military the promised “freedom and democracy” have NOT been delivered. What has happened is our actions have turned the Middle East into a hotbed of chaos and instability and helped to give rise to some powerful enemies such as ISIS and al Qaeda et al. We’ve gone into Syria uninvited and without a UN resolution just like bullies. And we are pursuing a policy of supporting ISIS and other terrorist groups thinking that once Syria’s Assad is ousted like Iraq’s Saddam and Libya’s Ghadafi that we can negotiate with ISIS who would then be in control of Syria. That’s so insane that it’s hardly imaginable but that is current US foreign policy in Syria under the LOST and INCOMPETENT Obama Administration! Fact of the matter is you can’t negotiate anything with terrorists, thugs, and rapists and that is exactly what ISIS et al is/are! Why? Because they have no interest in negotiations of any kind. period. For one thing the people in and in control of ISIS are absolutely insane and for the US to think it is dealing with rational people is beyond irrational. We aren’t!
All that we see the US and the West (the pet poodle of the US) doing is very much in line with the ideology of the Fascist Corporatist. War is BIG business and BIG PROFITS! And that is the ONLY concern of the Fascist Corporatist. Business and profit! And as for human lives and human rights or the right to a nation’s self determination? To hell with that shit because the cabal ruling over America and the West today could not care less, period!
In truth, the Fascist Corporatist are incompetent and that is proven by almost their every action which tends to leave the world scratching its head and wondering just what in the hell is wrong with the US today and the West. Their actions in Afghanistan, Libya, Egypt, Syria, et al prove time and time again that we are irresponsible and think nothing of wrecking havoc and creating instability. An instability which, frankly, puts the whole world in more danger of global war (read WW3) than ever before. America and the West area also two-faced. We’ve outright lied beyond belief to other nations and leaders for decades now to the point at which they do NOT respect us at all and automatically assume that every one of America’s promises is “just another American lie.” And, sadly, it usually is! Our word means nothing apparently. It’s been said you can judge a man or woman by their word which should be their bond. If their word is no good, then they are no good. And that’s what the world has now found out about America, the UK, Germany, and the rest of the Western World. Our word is no good and we are no good!! We have become hypocritical beyond imagination, in addition, saying or promising one thing and doing or delivering the opposite, typically. That creates an air of mistrust and this is one PRIMARY reason MOST of the world no longer trusts America or its Western allies. And, finally but not lastly, we have become arrogant. Arrogant and egotistical beyond belief, in fact!! To listen to our leaders America does no wrong and no matter what we do and how insane it really is our actions are always justified and righteous. Seriously? That’s beyond laughable as no one and no nation is perfect.
This is what the world knows and this is what Putin knows and being a REAL MAN Putin is no afraid to speak the truth unlike the metrosexuals and Fascist Corporatist we now have ruling over us in America! He’s simply spoken what everyone knows and pointed to the bull elephant in the center of the room that people are tired of tip-toeing around. Like I said, “the truth hurts.” Hopefully, more will speak the truth and point to the out of control and demented old elephant in the center of the room because truth has a way of slapping one in the face with a REALITY CHECK and that might be the ONLY thing able now to save what is left of the once great America.
