America vs. The World

America vs. The World

A superpower can foment conflict anywhere it wants to at anytime
it chooses.

President Obama has placed whole nations on his Kill List.

Syria and Venezuela are to join Libya and Iraq as states that have
been made to fail, while Ukraine is snatched into the NATO-EU orbit.

“The neo-conservative project for a new American century has
reached full fruition under a Democratic president, who now has
many notches on his gun.”

The word imperialism fell into disuse in recent decades.

If it seems slightly retro, that is only because there aren’t enough
Americans committed to telling the ugly truth about their government.

During the cold war era we were told that communism increased
in influence via a domino effect, knocking down nations one by
one and forcing them into Moscow’s or Beijing’s orbit.

In the 21st century there is a new domino theory which puts every
part of the world into America’s cross hairs.

Barack Obama has succeeded in expanding America’s influence in
ways that George W. Bush and Dick Cheney could only dream about.

The neo-conservative project for a new American century has
reached full fruition under a Democratic president, who now has
many notches on his gun.

He and the rest of the NATO leaders began the trail of destruction
with Libya, tearing that country asunder under the guise of saving

Using lies and their servants in the corporate media, they
constructed a tale of a tyrant and a people yearning for protection.

That evil success emboldened them and their gulf monarchy allies
further and they decided that Syria would be the next domino.

That plan didn’t work quite as well as Obama and the rest of
murder incorporated team thought it would.

When the British parliament said no to new military adventures
Obama was left sputtering on national television.

He was forced to back down from an adamant position he
had taken just days earlier.

The semi-comedic setback was only temporary because the
monster must be fed at all cost.

The system can no longer sustain itself and brute force is
the only out.

There is nothing old fashioned about imperialism.

This malevolent force is still alive and well.

George W. Bush made efforts to overthrow the democratically
elected Bolivarian revolution in Venezuela when he plotted
with the opposition against the late Hugo Chavez.

Obama is clearly more committed to violence than his predecessor
and has helped to stir up right wing Venezuelans who want to rid
themselves of Nicolas Maduro.

Maduro has been weakened by the ginned up protests and is now
forced into talks with an opposition that won’t be satisfied until
he is dead and gone too.

The Venezuelan people have voted for their revolution numerous

The U.S., a country that never ceases to call itself a democracy,
has thwarted their clearly expressed will time and time again.

But that is the essence of empire after all.

While armed force against Syria was temporarily blocked, the West,
the Persian gulf monarchies, Israel, and jihadists have not given up
their effort to topple the Bashar al-Assad government in Syria.

The savage war has made thousands of Syrians homeless and
starving refugees, all because the empire needs its next domino.

Not only does United States meddles in its own backyard, it also
relentlessly interferes on the other side of the world in far away

Popular discontent against that country’s president became a
successful effort to bring that country into the western sphere
of economic influence but with the awful strings of austerity

Ukraine has the choice of going bankrupt or being bailed out
and dying a slow death a la Greece.

While the machinations were afoot, president Obama warned
Vladimir Putin away with threats of sanctions.

The scenes of sometimes violent street protests in Ukraine made
a fortuitous tableau for the United States which claimed the
infamous “responsibility to protect” which never protects anyone
who actually needs help and which has brought so much suffering
to people around the world.

Every invasion, occupation and disruption in recent years can be
laid at the feet of the United States and its allies.

Iraq has been destroyed quite literally, Iran has been destroyed

Libya was taken out and Syria is on the brink.

The United States quite openly makes it clear that it wants to
have its way in the world.

If Russia attempts to use its influence then it is vilified and
caricatured as a cruel dictatorship controlled by a tyrant.

No matter how many elections Chavez and now Maduro won,
they are called dictators by American talking heads.

A superpower can foment conflict anywhere it wants to at
anytime it chooses.

Venezuelans must knuckle under or face the prospect of
more turmoil and violence.

Ukraine must sign onto economic policies which have
already proven disastrous.

The United States leaves its fingerprints in these and many
other places and that is the essence of imperialism.

It is all about control with the rawest brute force available.

The United States hasn’t officially made Venezuela or any
other a colony but it doesn’t have to do that.

It just has to show that it is boss and the dominos will fall
wherever it chooses.

  1. Yes, the U.S. has sought "full spectrum dominance" for some time and it's happening now. But the question remains for how long can it be maintained. I think Chalmers Johnson's predictions were correct about "Blowback" and "Sorrows of Empire" --it's just a question of time.
