License to kill
(anyone, including us)
We always have an enemy. It's an unspoken national policy. Good for business, and good for keeping the slaves in line.
A long time ago, when I was just a boy, it was the "Reds" who were the enemy, meaning the Communists. We persecuted our own fellow citizens with that one. Then it was the North Koreans and their Chinese allies. We fought an ugly war in distant Korea over that one, and we still have troops there over 60 years later. Then came the Russians and their imposing nuclear arsenal. We nearly started a fatal nuclear world war in a place called Cuba over that one. Then the backward Vietnamese needed a good paddling (we still hurt when we sit down). Next, we beat up the Iraqis, but we were so cruel that we stopped in mid-swing and declared victory, rather than be recognized for what we were by the watching world. Then we coveted Afghanistan, opium supplier to the world, so we did 9/11 and created the current boogieman, the "terrorist", and we declared that Afghanistan was full of them. Again, we invaded a backward nation. Profits from drug production exploded, and a trillion dollars a year flowed into secret coffers in Washington D.C. Oil was getting expensive, Iraq had oil, and more importantly, they would not cooperate with the dollar hegemony program by selling their oil for dollars only. Naturally, we invaded, occupied, and confiscated. Today, some Americans are starting to wise up, and the American government is turning its sites on them. Our own fellow citizens are being painted as terrorists, and we have come full circle, back to the fear of the Red Scare.
There are, of course, real enemies, but for good reason, we aren't told about them. The good reason is that they run the United States. One arm of those enemies is the Israeli Defense Forces (IDF). They have been quietly murdering American soldiers in Iraq for who knows how long, and they record each murder on video. You can watch their crimes here. Our so-called leaders know about this, but have kept it quiet. Of course they would, since they are another arm of the true enemy.
