Blowback—–The Washington War Party’s Folly Comes Home To Roost


But the everlasting truth is that the relative handful of suicidal jihadi who have perpetrated murderous episodes of terror like 9/11 and this weekend’s carnage in Paris did not exist in November 1989; and they would not be marauding the West today save for the unrelenting arrogance, stupidity, duplicity and mendacity of Imperial Washington.

ROBERT STEELE:  Bravo for an utterly brilliant article that pulls together all the negatives that General Wesley Clark has called a “foreign policy coup” in a YouTube still available to the public.  I admire very much all of the detail here. What is missing is the role of Saudi Arabia in organizing and mobilizing ISIS — Qatar is on record, officially, labeling ISIS “the Saudi Project.” Also missing here is the role of Israel in guiding, training, and in some instances mis-directing elements of ISIS all  toward the end of pulling US boots into the area and ultimately breaking Syria up, part of Israel’s long-standing “Oded Yinon” Plan for formenting a clash of civilizations between Muslims and Chrstians, for Balkanizing the Middle East, and in the most recent instance of what I believe to be a second false flag attack in Paris (real ISIS people aided by Saudi Arabia and Israel and Turkey), assuring the entry of France into a very ill-advised third Gulf War. From where I sit, Barack Obama is absolutely correct to refuse to put boots on the ground; there are some very ethical senior flag officers in the Pentagon backing him up on this point, and he is surrounded by too many people — too many neoconservatives allowed to remain at State and elsewhere — to be effective as President.  It is long past time we cleaned house. The neocons and thelr liberal interventionist mini-mes need to be flushed from the government, we need to convene a Project Solarium 2.0 and create an evidence-based Grand Strategy that is affordable, balanced, and flexibile.
