Sick Of Being Unconvinced?
This trio of amateur warmongers gave us their unconvincing dodgy dossier claims, which duped many into believing exactly that which they hoped. Moscow are now expressing doubts on the Syrian "dossier", paraded by the US Deputy Security Chief in a briefing this morning. Whatever the real facts might be we should remember that excellent saying "in war the first casualty is truth".
Furthermore I have blogged from day one that war is always full of motivations never openly admitted. That is covetous ambition and greed for power and money are usually the reasons for the destruction of habitat, life and a degree of freedom and normality. The "War on terror" has been little more than a fig leaf to cover the desire to subjugate whole nations and control vast wealth for some by waging violent mayhem, wherever profit may ensue.
I really am nauseated by the propaganda, self righteous poppycock and drivel designed to convince that somehow hundreds of soldiers lives lost, thousands condemned to disability and broken limbs and the destruction of lands and lives is somehow for my benefit and security.
The overriding fact is that everything so badly done does little to demonstrate any leadership or statesmanlike quality in those pretending to greatness. Quite the opposite. The economic collapse of 2007, expected by many, other than those with power to prevent it. The vengeful, thoughtless attack on Iraq. The ridiculous failure to get in and out of Afghanistan in double quick time. All go to show how really unconvincing The West's partnerships for power are so atrocious and ghastly.
This Bilderberger influenced drive to a world Government is failing. The triumvirate of Politicians, bribed to rescue banks, using the siren voices and drug laundered stashes of gangsters, all has a price. Inevitably it is the poor of those Countries coveted for their minerals and oil who suffer most. Not that those of us more fortunate do not get to share in the punishment meted out.
In the West austerity reigns and dreams are shattered. The brainwashed majority are incapable of understanding their beggared celebrity culture is about to be subsumed by events in Syria and elsewhere. For the ill educated and historically blindfolded, Sodom and Gomorrah and hedonism appear as a festival of selfish, orgiastic, endless joy. That a couple of drink and drug fuelled holidays, in the latest fashionable resort, are all that their lives need to be about is almost funny.
What is not so hilarious is the eventual cost to those of us who believe in better. We have to watch as the decline gathers pace and the water laps around our feet, as our hard work, savings and pensions are drained away. Sure those who couldn't care less will find out, eventually, where their stupidity is taking them. Unfortunately so many, across the planet, are sacrificed wantonly. A sad fact of modern life. A fact which is convincing in its glaring exposure of how badly wrong we have got it, these last 20 years or so.
