House Votes to Continue Illegal Military Occupation of Syria

Hypocrisy abounds and far too many Americans have little interest in the truth.

I figured it would go this way.

My hunch was more than mere cynicism. The fact of the matter is, the ruling elite is heavily invested in war, mass murder, environmental degradation as a consequence of war, unparalleled trauma, starvation, misery, etc. It is an aggressive and psychopathic effort to remain top dog, call the “rules-based” shots, and continue to steal natural resources, “privatize” public services, and enforce austerity, while killing off the holdouts.

Congress works for the elite. They “vote” for whatever insane, anti-human policies an oligarchic, monopolistic, corporate-fascistic, and psychopathic elite demand be imposed on the rest of us.

What a load of BS. I am more concerned about the FBI, DHS, CIA, and DOD terrorizing and victimizing the American people than the highly remote prospect of a gaggle of Wahhabi-inculcated serial murderers invading Telluride, Colorado.

The USG claims it still has work to do in eastern Syria fighting ISIS, never mind it is responsible for the creation of this terror group, the same as it was responsible for the creation of a previous boogieman, Osama bin Laden and al-Qaeda. The USG, by way of comparison, makes the average Muslim head chopper look like a grade school kid weilding a paring knife.

Naturally, the war propaganda media routinely misinforms the people about what the USG is doing in Syria, often through omission.

Hypocrisy abounds, not that many Americans notice, or if they did, would they care or give it a second thought. Meanwhile, the hoi polloi are told, day after day, the problem is Russia and China. War propaganda lies are cobbled together. The fiction spun on poor, noble Ukraine is increasingly (and desperately) fantastical, defying belief and distorting reality. The lies and exaggerations are really quite astounding.

It is really unfortunate so many Americans believe this nonsense about Russia. The “invasion” is about Russia finally pushing back against NATO’s decades-long effort to threaten the country on its border, in addition to disarming and eradicating neo-nazi paramilitaries and terrorists dedicated to ethnically cleansing and killing Russians in the Donbas and elsewhere in Ukraine.

Ronald Reagan did the same in Grenada, ostensibly to save a couple of American students from Cuba-inspired commies. No comparison is forthcoming. Reagan’s illegal invasion has been wiped away by amnesia. Americans loved the B-actor. They put him in office twice.

This truth is strictly verboten. You are instructed to believe lies and ridiculous fairy tales about Putin’s supposed mad dash to roll over Poland, Lithuania, Estonia, Latvia, and maybe the rest of Europe. It’s all a pack of vile and murderous lies.

It really is seriously unfortunate so many people are brainwashed and lobotomized by war propaganda that stands a chance of fomenting a final thermonuclear act.
