The Danger of Engaging in Perpetual War

As I scrolled through my Facebook memories, I discovered the following link, which I originally posted to my own wall in August of 2016, and decidedly re-shared it, along with commentary…

Our Greatest National Security Threat? Perpetual War:
https://www.commondreams.org/views/2016/08/12/our-greatest-national-security-threat-perpetual-war

(William Astore) The United States is now engaged in perpetual war with victory nowhere in sight.  Iraq is chaotic and scarred. So, too, is Libya. Syria barely exists. After 15 years, “progress” in Afghanistan has proven eminently reversible as efforts to rollback recent Taliban gainscontinue to falter. The Islamic State may be fracturing, but its various franchises are finding new and horrifying ways to replicate themselves and lash out. Having spent trillions of dollars on war with such sorry results, it’s a wonder that key figures in the U.S. military or officials in any other part of America’s colossal national security state and the military-industrial complex (“the Complex” for short) haven’t spoken out forcefully and critically about the disasters on their watch.

My Commentary: Not exactly rocket science, and yet, it still remains an ever-elusive concept to most, somehow…

Dutifully Awaiting Further Instructions from Officials Before Knowing How to Proceed…

I originally posted the following information and commentary onto my Facebook wall…

EPA Official Accused of Helping Monsanto “Kill” Cancer Study:
https://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/2017-03-14/monsanto-accused-of-ghost-writing-papers-on-roundup-cancer-risk

(Joel Rosenblatt, Lydia Mulvany, Peter Waldman) The Environmental Protection Agency official who was in charge of evaluating the cancer risk of Monsanto Co.’s Roundup allegedly bragged to a company executive that he deserved a medal if he could kill another agency’s investigation into the herbicide’s key chemical.

The boast was made during an April 2015 phone conversation, according to farmers and others who say they’ve been sickened by the weed killer. After leaving his job as a manager in the EPA’s pesticide division last year, Jess Rowland has become a central figure in more than 20 lawsuits in the U.S. accusing the company of failing to warn consumers and regulators of the risk that its glyphosate-based herbicide can cause non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma.

My Commentary: Conspiracy theory? Meddling Russians? Quick, mainstream media monopoly! Tell me who’s to blame for this fake news story, and which government agency to rely on for solutions, so I can resume life in my comfort zone of unquestioning complacency and consumerism!

Thanks in Advance,
The Average American

But… Muh Russian Conspiracy Theory!

Ex-Deputy Director of the CIA, Mike Morell

Ex-CIA Deputy Director: Leak “Has to Be an Inside Job”:
http://thehill.com/policy/national-security/323532-former-cia-deputy-director-cia-leak-has-to-be-an-inside-job

(Nikita Vladimirov) Former CIA Deputy Director Mike Morell believes the leak of CIA documents published this week by WikiLeaks “has to be an inside job.”

“This data is not shared outside CIA. It’s only inside CIA,” Morell said in an interview with “CBS This Morning” on Saturday.

He argued that the data is on CIA’s “secret network” that is not connected to other networks.

“It’s on CIA’s top secret network, which is not connected to any other network. So, this has to be an inside job,” he added.

WikiLeaks published thousands of CIA documents this week, claiming that they describe the agency’s hacking tactics.

Doublethinking Democrats Celebrate Obama for Commuting Whistle-Blower, Manning’s, Prison Sentence

I originally posted the following information and commentary onto my Facebook wall…

Wikileaks’ Julian Assange

Democrats Can Go Ahead And Admit They Were Wrong About WikiLeaks Now:
http://www.newslogue.com/debate/295

My Commentary: Let’s not forget that Wikileaks exposed war crimes taking place under Bush’s Republican administration, long before revealing crimes and corruption taking place within the Democratic party.

Oh, and to those celebrating Obama for commuting Manning’s 35-year prison sentence… You do understand that this former military intelligence analyst began whistle-blowing in 2010, under an Obama administration, was sentenced in 2013, under an Obama administration, has been tortured and abused during his imprisonment, under an Obama administration – and, this was all for revealing various War Crimes, corruption, and abuses of power taking place from 2007 to 2009, under both Bush and Obama administrations? With that mind, you do also realize that Manning leaked this information to Wikileaks?

Cool. Now that you’re done celebrating justice… you should probably get back to espousing those mainstream-media-monopoly- propagated, unsubstantiated, evidence-free claims you’re so fond of. You know… the ones about Wikileaks being secretly controlled by “the Russians,” who dispersed either fake, or, “illegally hacked,” DNC emails to “rig” America’s presidential election. LOL! I mean… It’s OBVIOUSLY all true, simply because “journalists” and US “intelligence community” said so! They have no real vested interest in cover-ups of any sort! Keep fighting the good fight! 😉

The Prejudice and Elitism of the Left is Showing – Round 2!

The following debate, “The Prejudice and Elitism of the Left is Showing,” which originally took place upon the Facebook wall of my friend, Daniel Sv, and concluded days ago, was suddenly reignited, after Trump won the election for US President…

Russian President, Vladimir Putin, and American actor, Steven Seagal

Daniel F.: Maybe now he can move to Russia and raise the average IQ of both countries.

Rayn: Your prejudice and elitism are showing, Daniel F… Talk about “vile filth”…

Daniel F.: I take that comment back – clearly I grossly underestimated the collective stupidity of this country, as this year’s election has clearly shown.

Rayn: But… muh “democracy”!

“Remember: the ones in control are never elected”

Rayn:

“Democracy: your vote actually counts for very little. The vast majority of the people in control are unelected. The two parties share very similar views on most subjects. In the 110th Congress, people voted for the party line 91% of the time. Only 20.9% of the U.S. population voted for Barack Obama in 2012. Even if your vote did matter, all that you are doing is voting to force your opinions, morals and ideas onto everyone else.

Rayn: I just realized… Maybe the hypocritical Democrats will become anti-war, again! That would nice!

"2007-2012: Anti-War Movement"

“2007-2012: Anti-War Movement”

Daniel F.: You realize that come January 20th, someone with the temperament of a toddler is going to have access to our nuclear arsenal. Just let that sink in.

What could POSSIBLY go wrong..?

Rayn: Next time, vote harder! 😉 Democracy, for the win! 🙂

RaynBoth major candidates were dangerous, pro-war pigs, and yet, Killary had a very well-established history of major war-hawking whenever in positions of State power that few seemed to acknowledge…

I wouldn’t trust either lizard to so much as babysit a pet rock! 😀

Daniel F.: Well thanks to all the imbeciles in this country democracy is probably dead, or going to be in short order.

You will probably find what ends up replacing it even less to your liking

Rayn: Democracy, itself, is a dead, obsolete concept, to me. I do not like it, whatsoever, so I can’t possibly find any replacement “less to my liking.” And, in truth, this country is supposed to be a Republic – though, that has failed, like they always do.

Rayn: DemoRepubliCrats: (n) a group of Americans who vote to centralize their moral bankruptcy, murderous criminality, and insatiable desire for unrestricted control over the lives of others, into the shape of a violent, coercive, non-corporeal, unaccountable military-industrial plutocracy referred to as the “State,” largely in a legal effort to shield all individual members of said cabal from judicial prosecution, by diffusing and ultimately obscuring all personal accountability and private responsibility from the equation, while simultaneously creating a “legal” pretext for severely punitive, “State”-based enforcement of both 100% sponsorship for, and 100% participation in, said criminal racket, through use of extortion, conscription, violence, theft, kidnapping and imprisonment – all to the extreme detriment of the peaceful, non-consenting individuals who either currently live, or were originally born, within the imaginary borders of the “State.”
