Bankruptcy, prevalent US politics trait

Bullies cannot afford to be treated with contempt. And this is happening because the USA is now so completely bankrupt of policy that it is rushing around like a rabid dog stung by a bee, attacking anything it sees and not even caring if it attacks itself although it has apparently lucid episodes in which it transports food to those preparing to shoot it….

A video shows Syrian insurgents openly singing in praise of Osama bin Laden and Al-Qaeda. In addition, they chant their delight that on 9/11 in New York three thousand Americans were killed.


These are the very same insurgents who are being financed, armed and supported by the USA, Saudi Arabia, Turkey and Qatar.

So let’s get this right. Whereas sane people do not deliberately finance and arm their enemies, the Americans most certainly are. Have they gone mad?
Well, since you ask, they could be mad but it’s worse than that.

Madness in pursuit of a policy leads to ruthless pursuit of that policy and Hitler is an example. Nobody can deny the clarity of purpose, and practical efficiency, by which Hitler conducted ethnic cleansing in Eastern Europe and whipped the slaves building the Atlantic Wall on the French coast. When the slaves were too weak to work, they were quickly garrotted (wire around the neck) in order to save the cost of a bullet.

But Hitler never made the mistake of arming the British, the Americans or the Soviets. In fact, in every way possible, he was rather good at denying them resources.

To be fair, in the past, the Americans have also been rather good at denying resources to their enemies. Moreover, being much richer, they do not need to use a garrotte and can use bullets and take their time over water-boarding. And nobody can doubt that the Americans are just as good as Hitler in attacking and occupying countries right the way around the world. (For example, somebody has counted American involvement in over forty wars since 1945 but most people have given up trying to count them).

Indeed, trying to get the number reasonably accurate, it should be noticed that it was recently announced that American troops are now being sent to over thirty countries in Africa (readers can decide for themselves whether that counts as another individual thirty wars or just a very big one….) So what could be worse than that?
What could be worse than endless aggression?

The problem is that, in the world of realpolitik (i.e. immoral international policy), deliberately shooting yourself in the foot by having policy which contradicts itself (e.g., by supporting your enemy) starts others laughing and soon they come to treat you with contempt.

Yes, simply put, having lost all sense of morality, rapidly losing its political leadership, and being the main reason why the Western world, at least, is headed for economic collapse and fascist suppression (the Homeland Security Agency has now upped its purchases of dum-dum expanding bullets to 1.6. billion, five for every citizen), the USA is engaged in profoundly wrecking its own foreign policy or, rather more accurately, is engaged in wrecking its own long term interests.

This happens because the USA is controlled by Zionism whose requirements have nothing to do with justice, freedom or democracy (and certainly have nothing to do with the USA’s long-term interests). Rather Zionism is totally concerned with seeing every Islamic state smashed into pieces so that Israel can expand, unopposed, into lands reaching from Sinai across to Iraq.
Thus, apart from becoming a pariah state because of its obsequious support for Zionism, the USA is now becoming the world’s laughing stock. Having invaded Afghanistan and Iraq because of Al-Qaeda; having become an infamously gruesome torturer because of Al-Qaeda; and, because of Al-Qaeda, having murdered Osama bin Laden (who had nothing to do with 9/11), the USA is doing everything it can to arm Al-Qaeda.

Needless to say, Al-Qaeda is now cheering its head off as it finds how easy everything is becoming. Goodness me, they chortle, at this rate we shall soon be invited to occupy the White House….!

But the USA is not the only laughing stock. It is not widely known that Al-Qaeda’s prime target, even before America, is the regime in Saudi Arabia. The throat-slitting Al-Qaeda insurgents are extreme, vicious, narrow-minded and totalitarian Wahhabis and Salafis.

They are so extreme that the vicious, narrow-minded and totalitarian regime of Saudi Arabia is, for them, insufficiently vicious, narrow-minded and totalitarian….
However, (and you just can’t make this up), never in their wildest dreams did the Al-Qaeda throat-slitters think that their Saudi enemies would be providing them with finance and arms which, in due course, will be used to overthrow the regime in Saudi Arabia!

So yet another country, Saudi Arabia, is bankrupt of policy and the reason is essentially the same as that of the USA. The Saudi regime oppresses its people and, in that oppression, the regime is supported by the USA and the West as long as it gives support to Zionist Israel. For that support the Saudi regime is required to do everything it can, sometimes by doing nothing, to ensure that Islamic states are never allowed to effectively challenge Israel and, in particular, to ensure that Islamic states are never allowed to develop as modern democracies.

That is not to say, of course, that Al-Qaeda is democratic. It is not. But it hates the present Saudi regime and the country of its birth precisely because they are hand in glove with the Americans and the Zionists.

What about Turkey and Qatar? They, too, are shooting themselves in the foot. Turkey is being egregiously stupid. It has been told by NATO that, as long as it supports NATO’s Zionist policy, it (Turkey) will be allowed to become the Mr. Big of the Middle East. But, in due course, the forces of sectarianism and division will catch Turkey.

Qatar, too, like Saudi Arabia, will come to be attacked by Al-Qaeda. No wonder the Al-Qaeda insurgents are chortling their heads off.
