Blinken's Stinkin' Thinkin': US has gall to warn on China nukes

US Secretary of State Antony Blinken warns of China's nukes on the anniversary of his own country dropping the only one ever.

The US empire never disappoints in its endless quest to project the behavior of a true sociopath. As with Goebbels’ Big Lie (which he stole from the American Bernays anyway), the tried-and-true strategy is to attack others for actions it has itself performed on a regular basis. Hence the whole Russiagate charade about foreign interference in sacred elections by a country other than the US—reigning and uncontested champion of regime change campaigns. Now comes Blinken, the US talking head du jour on the world stage, to warn Asia about China’s nuclear weapons. Huh?

If irony wasn’t dead, Blinken and crew (Winken, Nod et al) would track it down and strangle it with their bare hands. On August 6, the State Department announced Blinken’s warning to China’s neighbors: THE ANNIVERSARY OF HIS OWN COUNTRY’S DROPPING OF A NUCLEAR BOMB on Hiroshima. I would say “not to put to fine a point on it,” but it just can’t possibly be sharpened any further. Run that back, with the reverse tape noise and all.

The ONLY country EVER to drop a nuclear bomb on another, the United States, chooses the very anniversary of the first of those two genocidal crimes against humanity, to express grave concern about China’s nuclear arsenal. I guess you could just drop the mic here—there really is so little left to say. What comes after tragedy and farce? Even Old Man Marx didn’t mention a third, though I might venture Cynicism Made Flesh?

Of course, Blinken--I just can’t stop saying the name… it’s like DICK Cheney and COLIN Powell, or that library cop Bookman from Seinfeld—Blinken isn’t to blame for the blasphemy of rewriting history. He and his cohorts have a generational head start on stupid. Seventy-five years of relentless assault on Americans’ knowledge of history and political consciousness has left a populace with a Hollywood understanding of WWII that has almost no relation to reality. Even Eisenhower knew (and said) that the bombings were of no military use. Lost to Americans’ history—but importantly, not the world’s—is the cold truth that Truman knew as well and didn’t care. Perhaps the meanest and most small-minded of US presidents, he offed a hundred thousand Japanese in one fell swoop just to scare the Russkies. And by his own admission, never lost a night’s sleep. Brrrrrrrr.

But Back to the Future: Blinken’s degenerate idiocy also further exposes the infantile disorder of the Lesser Evilists and the rest of the Harm Reduction menagerie. He is himself, of course, no more than a cardboard clown, or more likely made entirely of wood, spouting vituperations like a useful ventriloquist’s dummy while sitting on the knee of whoever plays Edgar Bergen in this cynical farce. The masters who pay Blinken, Biden, (O)Bama, Bush and Bacchus keep them on a short leash. The sociopaths in charge make the real decisions.

The notion that “getting back to normal” would yield anything other than a smooth return to the endless killing machine was not just wishful thinking, but deliberate self-delusion, a lazy and selfish need to play pretend and self-soothe while the world burns. Unforgiveable, really. From Iran to Venezuela, Russia, China and beyond, and with clockwork precision, the Enemies of Humanity are ramping up war fever, concocting lies and manipulating truth and fear like never before. The New York Times’ perversion of the Tokyo medal counts to pretend the US won is more than instructive: it is the stock in trade and lifeblood of the predator class, honing its exceptionalist rhetoric to wield when needed. Dark days ahead.

Despite the price of being outspoken against US foreign policy and military adventurism -- which can be steep in today's circumstances -- he believes firmly as did Rosa Luxemburg that "It will always be the most revolutionary act to tell the truth out loud."
