The US invaded Iraq under the false pretense that it had something to do with 9/11, and continued that invasion under the false pretense of WMDs … and left it as a war-torn terrorist controlled state.
The US invaded Afghanistan under the false pretense of “spreading democracy,” and also for 9/11 … and left it as a war-torn terrorist controlled state.
The US overthrew Gaddafi under the false pretense of yet again “liberating” the Libyan people from an evil dictator, otherwise regarded as “spreading freedom and democracy;” this was all in spite of the fact that Libya had the highest quality of life of any African nation … and the US left it as a war-torn terrorist controlled state, that is now openly selling slaves.
The US invaded, bombed and falsely accused the democratically-run, Christian-protecting, sovereign nation of Syria, under the same false pretense as Libya, and is currently occupying an area within Syria which is both internationally and domestically illegal. They claim they are there to fight the Islamic state, while bombing Syrian troops who are actually fighting the Islamic State, and for the protection of the Syrian people of course, who oddly unanimously desire Assad to stay in power.
Last year, a US civil court case, which, based on zero evidence and wholly circumstantial testimony, found that Iran was responsible for 9/11, and fined them 10 billion dollars of which they have refused to pay. This got almost zero press coverage, and was a huge dog and pony show designed to get Iran on paper as “responsible for 9/11,” setting the stage, pretext and justification for a soon to come invasion of Iran.
There are so many more to include, that all end the same way; all under this decades-old facade of somehow “liberating” nations from their moderate leaders who desire, above all else, independence from the US imperialistic control of both their government and natural resources — improving quality of life in the process. This US liberation always ends with the placement in of a US controlled extremist, who brings the exact opposite of what the US promises.
History is vividly clear on this point and well documented — from the creation of al-Qaeda in the 70’s to fight the soviets, to the creation of ISIS to overthrow Syria. Yet, most just choose not to look at it in favor of the cosmetically enhanced lie that helps them sleep at night. One could argue that the US always has good intentions just fails to deliver (not sure if that is better or worse), but I find that to be exceedingly naive. Regardless, the US has an immaculate track record of delivering the exact opposite of what it sells to the world.
Hypocrisy indeed seems to be the word of the decade, as the US stands on its podium of lies and calls out any country it wishes to add to the “democracy wish list” while failing to reconcile how it’s international and domestic actions, in many cases, are worse than the country it seeks to demonize. Americans are being forced to take sides in every aspect of life and it is clearly taking its toll, as the US becomes more racially charged by the day. The Seth Rich investigation continues to get more convoluted, by design, just as we saw with the investigation that became known as pizzagate. The Philippines saw a sudden rise in ISIS activity right after publicly severing ties with the United States, and the Syrian occupation continues…
That and much more, today on TLAV Political Roundtable:
