I believe behind the scenes things are playing out very differently than they are in the media and the private discussions between the current western coalition; the US, UK, Israel, France, Saudi Arabia and Qatar, are very likely as odious as they are loathsome. They have diabolical plans.
Here's what's going to happen and why.
During our 200 year... history, beginning almost as soon as the ink was dry on the new, revised constitution, the US government, while increasingly fronting for globally connected banking interests, has been relentless.
Masterfully clever, capable of using propaganda even better than the best we've ever seen, efficient and skilled at using technology to create newer and more creative weapons for mass murder and human extinction and now an experienced and talented warrior for global resource acquisition, the United States has marched across the planet like a hungry Tyrannosaurus Rex devouring everything in its path—unstoppable.
It's almost as if we've all been duped and deluded right from the start, as though the US was created for the bankers from its very beginning, from its inception. To act as the bankers global police force. The threat of murder as a political weapon. And that characterization might not be far from the mark.
The word "empire" was discussed frequently in the 1780s, before the final constitution had even been drafted. The Annapolis Convention of 1787 led to the Philadelphia Convention of the same year where the Articles of Confederation (don't worry, they didn't teach you this in school for a reason) underwent fundamental revisions, fundamental revisions that is, which eventually led to the constitution we have now. Empire and Liberty were the topics of the day. Or should I say empire OR liberty was what was being discussed then, in homes, households, by folks like you and me ... empire OR liberty. Allegedly we chose liberty, so they tell us. Obviously we didn't. 1,000+ military bases spread out across the planet is empire for sure (in my opinion).
Heck man, we didn't even participate. We couldn't read and write anyway, down on the farm.
The discussions regarding the constitution we have in place today were sworn to secrecy in any event and several delegates, including James Madison who now ranks among our more popular founding American political authors, took extensive notes which were released decades, yes decades later. Exactly. So much for transparency in government. So yeah, the constitution we have today, written by lawyers, landowners and statesman, was drafted in secret after our founding constitution was fundamentally revised. Interesting that we have empire today, just as it was discussed then, over 200 years ago, by them, those who could read and write, while we were discussing liberty, milking cows, having an ale after a hard day in the field.
You and me were discussing liberty while we were mining ore, plowing fields, building our homes out of trees we had to chop down ourselves and milking the cow(s). George Washington, Thomas Jefferson and the other guys had slaves. Naturally, they were discussing the potential for empire. Some of these guys have actually written about just that.
In 1786 we were bankrupt, broke, empty pockets. Truly, the US Congress was virtually out of money.
You see, they had no power to tax or regulate commerce. They also had virtually no power to regulate domestic affairs. They relied solely on donations from the states and the states were all busy fighting over commerce between themselves. They often refused to donate to causes. Admittedly, it really was a mess. But we we did have liberty and freedom, messy as it was. But it wasn't profitable for them.
In Rhode Island, which back then folks like you and me called "Rogue Island" for obvious reasons, oddly enough the state legislature was dominated by a lot of people like you and me. Debtors. Those were the days. For real.
They passed a law in Rogue Island essentially forgiving all debt every thirteen years. They considered this a positive economic provision. Let's face it, some debt is odious. And if you can't pay something off in 13 years you're either having financial problems or you're living beyond your means and you shouldn't have bought it in the first place. And you're paying a boat load of interest. That thirteen year thing was probably plucked out of thin air by the way and it might have had something to do with having thirteen colonies also. Anyway, the point is that the US had some serious problems, debts from the war, debts to numerous creditors (foreign countries), and no dough.
Congress had no salary, but you knew that. No health care, no retirement. No pages, no free mail. No lobbyists. Not sure how that worked. They were volunteers though, sent by the states for the states representation. The only perk Congress did have was that they couldn't be arrested or imprisoned while going to, coming from or attending Congress, except for treason, felony or breach of peace. Anyhow, these guys were dead broke, the lights were out and the curtain was about to be drawn.
You can pretty much guess what happened next, right?
Taxes, regulation of domestic affairs and control over interstate and international commerce.
How did they do it?
They wrote the constitution we have today, of course. Sneaky devils.
Read the original Articles of Confederation from 1776 and see which you like better. See watcha think.
The articles that bound the country in 1776, that famous date we all know by heart which was drilled into our heads at every grade level in elementary school, are very different from the ones that bind us today. Fundamental changes, as they say. Fundamental changes ... they were a little tighter around the edges, or from the opposite perspective, they were a little looser, but either way they were filled with freedom and liberty and that kind of stuff.
But since that day in 1787 when the revised articles became the new and current constitution and almost to the moment, we've been an empire. A big, bad, scary, murdering empire. And we have, in fact, been an empire for a very, very long time. A colonizing empire at that.
How's that you say?
Well, we've prevented every country in South America, Central America, the Caribbean, Asia, East Asia, SE Asia, the old Soviet Union, Africa, Australia, what am I leaving out ... well, we've prevented most of the world from challenging dollar hegemony since WW2 and we've politically and economically manipulated almost every government on planet earth, extracting everything they have from water and bananas to petroleum and uranium and we've done one bang up job of it.
All for bankers and their product, debt.
I'll promise you, you can ask any one of the 6 million estimated killed in covert wars waged by the CIA alone, which doesn't include the many, many millions more killed and injured in wars we never needed to enter, and they'll all to a person agree with me. The war wasn't worth dying for, whatever war it was.
So Syria is doomed. These creeps never lose. Assad will have to leave, one way or another. The country will be ruined and usurped. Quickly by war as we're seeing now and then slowly by IMF and World Bank structural adjustments, which is even more deadly than white phosphorous.
Because they can and because these creeps never lose. The cards are marked, the deck is stacked and the fix is in and it's always been this way. No one bucks the system, plain and simple. The bank is, well, it's the freakin' bank gosh darnit, and right or wrong be dammed (dead and deformed people included), the bank never loses. Syria's done.
