More Thoughts on Trump’s UN Declaration of War
Against Iran and North Korea
September 20, 2017 "Information
- Trump’s UN speech makes it clear that Trump’s
presidency, in terms of his campaign promise to
remove Washington from the “policeman of the
world” role, exit the Middle East, and repair
the damaged relations with Russia, is over. The
CIA and the military/security complex are in
full control of the US government. Trump has
accepted his captivity and his assigned role as
the enforcer of Washington’s hegemony over every
other country. Washington uber alles is
the only foreign policy that Washington pursues.
At the UN Trump actually threatened to wipe
North Korea off of the face of the earth. He
added to this threat threats against Venezuela (http://stephenlendman.org/2017/09/trump-threatens-venezuela/)
and Iran. He demonized these countries as “rogue
states,” but it is Washington that is playing
that role. Washington has destroyed in whole or
part eight countries in the young 21st century
and has 3 to 5 more in its crosshairs.
One question is: why did not the UN audience
shout Trump down, a man standing before them
telling obvious lies? The answer, of course, is
money. The US taxpayers pay roughly one-quarter
of the UN’s annual budget, leaving the other
130+ countries a light load. Washington is
succeeding in driving the world to Armageddon,
because the world’s leaders prefer money to
truth, to justice, to survival.
The UN diplomats see in their
cooperation with Washington the opportunity to
make money by sharing in the West’s exploitation
of their own countries.
Washington, absorbed in its effort to destroy
Syria, left it to its Saudi Arabian puppet to
destroy Yemen. The Saudi autocracy, a major
sponsor with the US of terrorism, has done a
good job, thanks to US supplying the weapons and
to the US refueling the Saudi attack airplanes.
This totally gratuitous war has helped to
maximize the profits of the American
military/security complex, a collection of evil
never before present on the face of the earth.
UNICEF reports that one million Yemeni children
will be the victims of “American compassion” of
which Trump bragged in the CIA’s UN speech.
wonders if the Russians and Chinese are so
absorbed in getting rich like America’s One
Percent that they are unaware that they are on
the list of countries to be eliminated for not
accepting Washington’s hegemony. Really, where
was the Russian government when Washington
overthrew the Ukranian government? It was at a
sports event. And I call Americans insouciant.
Where was the Russian government? How could it
have not known?
frank. The point is this. Unless Russia and
China can take out the US, the US will take out
Russia and China. The only question is who
strikes first. The only way to avoid this is for
Russia and China to surrender and accept
Washington’s hegemony. This is the firm
undeviating path on which the neoconservatives,
the CIA, and the military/security complex have
set the United States. The entire point of North
Korea is US nuclear missiles on China’s border.
The entire point of Iran is US nuclear missiles
on Russia’s border.
As far as I can ascertain, hardly anyone is
aware that Armageddon is just around the corner.
There is no protest from the Western
presstitutes, a collection of whores. In the US
the only protests are against ancient “civil
war” statues, which the ignorant rabble say are
symbols of black slavery. There is no peace
movement and no peace marches. In London the
transgendered and the radical feminists are
protesting one another, engaging in fist fights
in Hyde Park.
No one seems to have any awareness.
online propaganda websites such as Americans for
Limited Government—funded by who? serving
who?—endorse Trump’s destabilizing UN speech as
a non-threat to world peace:
“President Trump has provided a cogent and
inspiring defense of America and the American
constitutional system of governance to the world
not as imposition but an example to be followed,
while at the same time respecting the
sovereignty of other nations. However, the
President also made it clear to those nations
that threaten humanity with nuclear destruction
[which Washington has done to N. Korea and Iran]
that the United States will not be held hostage,
and continuing down their current paths
guarantees their annihilation. While many will
focus on Trump’s threat to North Korea and Iran,
the real focus of his speech is that it is a
call to all nations to embrace their own
sovereignty without threatening world peace.”
never in my long life read such a
misrepresentation of a speech. The United States
has become the complete propaganda state. No
truth ever emerges.
only the US government, which is not a
government of the people, that has ever
threatened another country with total
destruction as Trump did to North Korea in the
CIA’s UN speech.
a first. It trumps Adolf Hitler. The US has
become the 4th Reich. It is doubtful that the
world will survive the foreign policy of the
United States of America.
