It's a contradiction in terms. Pure. Evil. An evil distilled thru the years to the purest form of evil possible. Its proponents believe it is always right, always pure of motive, always correct in its actions. It is the U.S.A., purest evil on our planet.
It all began quite well. Another evil empire was confronted & beaten, that of the Nazis. U.S. troops were heroes as they arrived, albeit belatedly to help embattled Britain as she fought valiantly & single-handedly against the purest evil of those days.
Hitler was beaten after the bloodiest conflict ever arguably bar WWI. Europe was devastated.
The fascist regime of Japan was defeated. The U.S.A. overcame the 2nd purest evil empire, albeit killing 230,000 innocent men, women & children in the process.
Not long after the evil quotient rises. The first of many times when U.S. elites will interfere in the affairs of sovereign nations & initiate regime change wars. The first is in North Korea where the U.S. killed at least 10% of the civilian population.
Most will tell you the U.S. was right in attacking North Korea. But consider: ‘Nearly 3 million people died. More than half, about 10 percent of Korea's pre-war population, were civilians ... civilian casualties higher than World War II & Vietnam War.’
Next came Vietnam. In Vietnam the evil quotient of the U.S.A. rose to new heights. ‘Not until 1995 did Vietnam release its official estimate of war dead: .... 2 million civilians on both sides & some 1.1 million North Vietnamese and Viet Cong fighters.’
U.S. elites, as we know, were beaten in Vietnam. The protest movement at home engendered by truthful mass media coverage was instrumental in stopping the U.S. military calls for ever more weaponry & methodologies, up to & including the nuclear bomb.
The defeat of the U.S. in Vietnam caused consternation among many who made claims about “if only we had done this, or that, the war could have been won’. The troops who came home to no hero’s welcome. The warmongers curled their lips & bided their time.
The U.S. licked its wounds. The Vietnam war was re-branded in Orwellian ‘Ministry of Truth’ style, to a noble endeavor by heroic U.S.A. to free a people from the oppression of socialists. U.S. elites moved on to find new justifications for their wars.
There were been many other interventions before, during & after Vietnam, many in Latin America...
Dominican Republic 1965
El Salvador 1981
Regime change mentality of self-justified interference in the affairs of sovereign states grew. An industry of analysts made a good living on fear & support for “justified” wars. And the Military Industrial Complex Eisenhower had warned of, grew v. rich.
An incestual relationship of mutual benefit arose where gov officials made policy benefiting the “defense” industry & were rewarded w/ campaign funds by U.S. banks & w/ later seats on boards of directors. This self-serving corruption grew exponentially.
Lobby groups became hugely influential. Much more so than voters. Politicians knew where their next dollarl was coming from. Policies written by lobbyists were passed. Elite taxes were reduced. The Military Industrial Complex became massively enriched.
At this point a group of individuals emerged who initiated an agenda that would become instrumental in the regime change wars to come: ‘The Project for the New American Century’.
The primary PNAC goal?
“To promote American global leadership.”
Thus the stage was set & the justifications pre-arranged for what would be the most aggressively evil era of U.S. interference ever seen.
The neoconservatives who initiated PNAC were aware they needed a pivotal event. ‘Their plans for global domination & required increase in military spending required 'a catalyzing event along the lines of a new Pearl Harbor.’ It arrived soon enough, 9/11.
We know what followed. A president who had focused on home in his presidential campaign became fervent in taking America’s power to the world & using military might to bring “freedom” & “democracy”. At least 7 nations would be targeted for regime change.
A new & ultra-aggressive agenda was formulated in the days after 9/11 by U.S.elites. No resistance to U.S. power would be ignored. All individuals & nations who displayed criticism of the U.S.A. would be eliminated by whatever means was judged necessary.
It was decided that no international law would take precedence over the security of the U.S.A. No code was to present a barrier to its actions or policies. No UN rule, no ban on torture, on kidnap or detainment without trial. No law would stop the U.S.A.
That these decisions, attitudes & policies came from a desire to protect America is true, on one side. The road to ruin is paved with good intentions, we all know the saying.
But at ‘The Project for the New American Century’, within the well-heeled Military Industrial Complex & among the myriad ranks of the warmongering analyst & commentator community there was a quite different mentality & reaction to 9/11 & these decisions.
We all know what happened next.
And future targets certainly include the most obvious, Iran among many others.
Now in 2019 there is an expanded list of regime change targets which we come to next.
In 2007 President Putin made plain Russia wouldn't follow slavishly in U.S. footsteps but would plot her own course & have an independent foreign policy based on her national interests & that of allies. This was the genesis of Russia as U.S. "enemy" #1.
From 2007 on we see western elites attempting to damage both Putin & Russia. The reasons given are false, the assertions lies. The allegations & slanders are continual. The CIA, U.S. state & western MSM is working to deliver the post 9/11 decisions.
Now we see attacks on all Russian allies, verbal & economic. China is another target. Syria & Iran are ongoing. Currently Venezuela is the hottest target. Further targets are both Cuba & Nicaragua as delineated recently by U.S. Secretary of State Pompeo.
The impoverishment of Venezuela by the U.S. is predicated upon the fixed goal of ‘Full Spectrum Dominance’ formulated post 9/11. The destruction of all individuals & nations not fully compliant with U.S. dominance & their allies is in constant progress.
No hope exists of any future president affecting the policy juggernaut of regime change on the totally & immovable, unchangeable goals of the days after 9/11. Whatever mandate is given it cannot affect these. The empire is now on full automatic pilot.
The future, unless there is a significant U.S. collapse & quarantining of the now ever-present ultra-aggressive instinct of U.S. elites, will full of ever-increasing U.S.-initiated & wholly divisive regime change wars, overt & covert means of control...
... constant use of propaganda & elimination of all whistle-blowers & opposing opinions, increasing surveillance, of ever more militariszed police, of the suppression of narratives not corresponding to those of the state, the reduction of rights...
... the categorizing of peacemakers & anti-war activists as traitors & the ever-present drumbeats of threat, hatred of ‘the other’ & war. This is 'The Forever War. the neocons speak of . It will be fought on land, sea & in space.
The evil empire of the U.S.A. won't rest until global domination thru soft power gained where deemed necessary through hard power is attained. Study the disintegration of Ukraine. Study how the U.S. destabilized Syria with terrorist proxies etc. #Future.
Terrorist states ought not to be supplied with the oxygen of positive publicity. Yet western mass media from within the U.S.itself to Britain & across Europe provide precisely this. Western MSM is wholly complicit in the evil that the U.S. perpetrates.
Until the massively indebted U.S.A. falls in ruin it will remain the greatest possible threat to all nations & enemy of peace. No respite will exist while the figureheads & corporate promoters of new Nazis, Trump, Pompeo, Bolton & others have their way.
Only the collapse of the U.S. economy can stop it now. China will eclipse its patrician power in time & that of its elite helpers in Britain, Germany & elsewhere. Until then the evil animals backing regime change will continue to be extremely dangerous.
The U.S. evil must be ended by economic means & by the rise of billions of world citizens crying “No more war!”-No more CIA illegality-No more renditions or torture-No more Nazi Gitmos.
And most importantly of all... no more U.S. EMPIRE OF PUREST EVIL.
