  • Amerika's global Midas touch

    Only whatever it touches doesn't turn to gold, it turns to pure carnage and destruction. All the countries it attempted to "set free" and "democratize" (at least according to the intentions that were made public to us) have descended into chaos and have become more dangerous than they were from the start...

    Iraq

    Christians are being slaughtered and driven out of the country by the tens of thousands. Radical jihadists, known as ISIS, have (at the very LEAST) captured supplies and weapons that US was supplying to the "good guy" jihadists before ISIS sprang on the scene like a tsunami (of course, where this particular group of Sunni fundamentalists initially got their supplies, funding and training remains a mystery).

    Afghanistan

    Ever since US invasion and occupation, global opium production and trafficking have skyrocketed to record numbers. Of course, it doesn't help when US marines are ordered to protect the crops and even supply the farmers with resources to grow the crops. Here are more photos taken from Public Intelligence showing marines guarding poppy fields. What's worse is that Taliban are gaining strength in spite of US military occupation and expanding to areas that were not controlled by Taliban prior to 2001.

    Libya

    Love how the Obama "liberal" whores (a few on this very forum) spun this war, much like the MSM, like it was such a great success, even in spite of the fact the country was apparently a socialist utopia, ironically enough, where citizens got free education and healthcare prior to the attack that "liberals" like Cenk of TYT and Maddow of msnbc vehemently supported (go figure that one out!). Not only did the US supply and fund groups that were either al-qaeda or linked to al-qaeda, men that had been previously killing US soldiers in Iraq and Afghanistan, but after the attack, jihadists again managed to score more weapons caches curtsey of the US. Now the country, much like Iraq, is a jihadist hellhole where, of course, Benghazi occurred (where more weapons were supposedly stolen), where Christians are also being slaughtered, where reports of ethnic cleansing have occurred, and where bloody sectarian clashes have been ongoing since the NATO led attack.

    Syria

    Though Syria managed to narrowly escape ending up the next Iraq/Libya (no thanks to the MSM lies, but thanks to the amplification of the truth about the military prospects for Syria that flooded society via independent media), it too is becoming a chaotic hellhole under the strain of a 3 year civil war. Though an Islamic moderate country under Assad, Christians are again facing persecution in areas where US armed and funded radical jihadists (with direct and indirect links to al-qaeda) have taken over.

      I don't recall the occupants of these countries being used as boogiemen that required government to grossly violate our Constitutional rights in order to keep us protected from said boogiemen. That's just to name ONE historical difference. And how ironic would your statement be if the rumors about Germany planning to leave the EU and join the BRICS were true? I'll keep my eye out for that one.

          CP, I don't get how that's relative to anything said in this thread. I don't recall us training, funding and arming groups of radical anti-American and anti-Christian Japanese to take down the Japanese government and then not only having the country spiral into chaos and becoming even more unstable and dangerous with the spread of these radical US-armed-groups, but shredding our Constitution back here at home in the name of protecting us from said radical groups

          Please explain how that's even remotely relative to WW2.

            It was in response to your post #3. Which is why I quoted your post #3.

              I still don't get it. If you had just said "Ugly stuff happens in war," then I would have assumed that's sadly your justification for what was stated in post# 3. But you referenced what happened to the Japanese. What went on with WW2 and the Japanese is nothing like what was stated in post #3.

                Why don't you look up the Office of Strategic Services and the anti-Japanese guerillas from China, Burma, Korea, and Vietnam they trained during WW2, and then realize that they were some of the same groups we ended up fighting in Korea and Vietnam.

                  How about you link me to a source or at least cite some source for this. The burden is on you to do this, and show me where tens of thousands of innocent Christians were being slaughtered or displaced as a result. In the meantime, it's STILL not the same. First of all, it seems you're implying that our current situation is somehow justified just because of something that happened in history... it's not. Secondly, these US created, funded and armed groups didn't attack us on our own soil (just a little more than a decade ago in fact!) which contributed to some of the most grossly unconstitutional policies we're seeing today (and continue to see) in the name of protecting us from these groups. We're arming and funding a present enemy concurrently with policies being passed to "protect" us from said enemy. Nothing in history is relative to that insanity. From what I understand, this is the definition of treason. Being a paid toady of the government, I'm sure you're cognizant of this offence.

                    At least he knows how to spell offense.

                    So, what is this thread about, anyway, besides "Blame America First"?

                            Probably the last work done by the OSS in Asia was making contact with and arranging to help the Viet Minh, under Ho Chi Minh, fight the Japanese occupying Vietnam. The war ended before much could come of this.

                            I'm sure you know how Ho Chi Minh turned out...




                            Excellent documentary exposing Ho Chi Minh for the genocidal communist he was. Especially from the 5th part of the playlist and onward, interesting details around Ho Chi Minh´s role in the killing of Vietnamese patriots and Christians and collaboration with the French colonial power to this end in the 50s. The documentary also sheds light on the brutal land reforms and public execution of specific percentages of the villagers as "class enemies".
                            The nightmare of the Tet massacres and the massive persecution of Christians and patriotic separatists is also highlighted, although only in passing.

                            In the meantime, it's STILL not the same. First of all, it seems you're implying that our current situation is somehow justified just because of something that happened in history... it's not.
                            I am not implying that. I am implying that arming guerillas is not new territory for the US, nor is the result that those guerillas frequently become our enemies later on.

                            Secondly, these US created, funded and armed groups didn't attack us on our own soil (just a little more than a decade ago in fact!)
                            Depends on whether you consider US Embassies "US soil"

                            which contributed to some of the most grossly unconstitutional policies we're seeing today (and continue to see) in the name of protecting us from these groups.
                            Such as?

                            We're arming and funding a present enemy concurrently with policies being passed to "protect" us from said enemy.
                            Who are we funding and why?

                            Nothing in history is relative to that insanity. From what I understand, this is the definition of treason.
                            No it isn't. Not even loosely...

                            And that's why I know it isn't even vaguely similar.

                              Seems to me that there is still a difference. Those groups didn't have a demonstrated intention to kill Americans (and anyone else they disagree with) off before they were given assistance.
