The New Year brought us the full blast of Iran bashing presented by our beloved propaganda industry and lobby groups. Like they would care what is happened with poor people in Iran. But it is showing all their hypocritical coarseness and rudeness. We saw it all already in 2011 while they were twaddling about “moderate” rebells while they where weeping at the G8 in Hamburg a few went “moderate” rebelling.
And it also shows how the “western block” is falling apart: When it comes to our wars even Trump seemed to demonstrate some redeeming qualities. Running against Hillary the hawk it presented him with genuine opportunities. But now it occurs more and more by the day his critiques of “stupid” interventions are gone. And with it a isolation of the USA from the rest of the world. I’m not sure if he meant this as he said he wanted to make America great again.
It becomes obvious that his masters are squeezing him to do silly things like the idiotic idea of a new mini-surge in Afghanistan, or his silly bombing of a Syrian airbase with over 70 missiles, not to mention his decision to let illegally ca 2000 US troops to stay on the ground in Syria (unwanted by the Syrian government),. Then the active participation of the US in the criminal war of Saudi Arabia against the civilian population of Yemen the most battered country in the Arab world. But this is not enough: the US troops in Africa, from Nigeria to Somalia, all these infusions of U.S. troops have not improved regional stability, - quite the opposite: radical groups are mushrooming more then ever before and then, last but not least, Trumps generous gesture about a capital which is at the very center of the problems of the Middle East.
All those wars, once GW Bush’s, then Obama’s, are now Trump’s.
The only difference seems to be are of form rather than substance: Unlike Bush and Obama, Trump delegates troop-level decisions to his secretary of defense and the generals how are actually responsible on the first hand why Iran became the real winner in the Iraq War, leaving Iraq to remain divided and ultimately unstable. It only shows the limited ideas of these generals if they now believe in impelling Iran, they could destroy Iran as it was tried with Syria. There should be no doubt about those who is interested in having these wars going on for generations. But those who are interested in this wars are completely irrelevant for Europe. It will be Europe to put up with this ethnical cleansing operations for religious and oil reasons in the Middle-East.
Another fact is, any of these countries are hardly of vital national security interest for the United States which means that the Trump team’s plans simply seem as vague as they are foolish because the consequence is that these plans will drive the USA even further into isolation as the previous wars already did. The bottom line is that as long as the occupation of Palestinian lands continues, basically creating a semi-apartheid state, the Middle East has many challenges ahead and Washington doesn’t have a hope in hell of meaningfully solving any of them. And why, of all things anyway?
Where does all of this is leaving Europe?
I’m very pessimistic and think it will be good to be prepared for ever more refugees, which are in fact “ethnically cleansed” people, - “ethnically cleansed” people like we know from the same tactic’s of the Balkan’s War’s which where introduced by religious fanatics! I just hope that Jerusalem does not become the religious center of people who seemingly never get tiered to fight wars so they love Jerusalem so much that they will do the same to this town like they did to Baghdad, to Allepo, to Nussrata, to Faludscha… this would not be the first time in history. It is obvious Europe and their mainstream media pundits will declare those who’re loosing all as refugees while the gangsters trap all.
