RUSSIA’S PERSPECTIVE ON THE DEPARTURE OF BOB GATES

Well, it's the day after Independence Day, and I found, in my musings on others' perceptions of the growing American/Wall Street empire, this interesting article, once again, from Russian TV:

A not-so-fond farewell to Gates

What I found interesting here was the clear though understated Russian animus toward the now semi-permanent presence of American bases the world over, including in Germany, Japan, and Italy. One might assume that with the collapse of the Cold War, and the fact that the former Axis powers are hardly likely to band together again "for another go," one does have to wonder just what the heck we need those bases for anyway.

The article takes great care to cite an American who states that America has a permanent war agenda. The agenda in fact goes back to the days after Hitler's invasion of Poland in 1939, when the elites of the USA, gathering around the Council on Foreign Relations, concluded that the world war provided the perfect opportunity to create an American post-war empire.

The perspective of the increasing militarization of America, once again, has been adequately perceived by the Russians:

Petraeus to lead CIA, Panetta to takeover Pentagon

The Russians might have pointed out that this militarization of American intelligence is very old, going back to the 1950s and 1960s (if not to World War Two and that dirty deal with General Reinhard Gehlen I've often mentioned), and the likes of "CIA generals" like Ed Lonsdale. But it does point out other possibilities of analysis of the Obama Administration than the wishful thinking of some who wish to see in him the reincarnation of the Kennedy era. From where Russia sits, it's business-as-usual in Washington DC for the military-industrial-intelligence complex.

    Pricisely.
    A radio commentary on Friday July 1, 2011, The Jim Fetzer Podcast. Author, Mike Sparks, talks with Jim Fetzer, about The Nazi’s deal(s) with Allan Dulles in his new book, “James Bond Is Real” and also makes numerous on air references to Dr. Farrell’s work, siting various scenarios, including the Nazi flying saucer at Roswell.
    It is two hours and “very interesking”.

    The United States military IS the military of the United Nations and the New World Order. While millions of Amerikans in uniform do their “duty” serving to “protect freedom” around the world, what they are in fact doing is taking part in a worldwide militarized control grid.

    Pretty much what anybody anywhere in this grid is asked…uh…ORDERED to do, they do.

  3. Mike, it’s only perceived as “not-so-intelligent” if you think their actual goal is to accomplish something we find valuable. It is not. Their goal is to remain #1 at the pig trough of public funds, and the easiest way to do this is to have “setbacks”, endless distractions, and an enemy that has no define form or location (except when briefly located somewhere with valuable narcotic or mineral resources). The goal is to suck as much capital out of the economy for their own enrichment. “Winning” against the Russians (remember when we called them Soviets?), or anyone else for that matter, is not the plan. I’m sure Bush the elder’s worst day was when there was the end of the Iron Curtain, as the populace then demanded a Peace Dividend and a cessation of the Cold War madness. The “war”, and therefore the looting, must continue, and they’ll lie, cheat, etc to keep that going by any means necessary.

    The unfortunate fact is that this can’t go on forever (unless they release secret technology and we go to war with some other solar system). When it does fall, it will be really ugly. Of course, the question is when and how many innocents fall right along with it.

    1. Right on MQ; and I don’t intend to become one of the ‘fallen’: Heart n’ Soul willing.

  4. Military/Industrial/not-so-inteligent complex, Joseph: if you don’t mind me saying so!
