Chronicle of Chaos-- Exceptional Evil!

Lest any younger reader be under the impression that it's the Internet that caused my skepticism (or generates the conspiracy theories), let me make it clear that all one needs is common sense accompanied by a modicum of logic, plus the ability to read (or hear) the 'news stories' produced by the mainstream media.
This writer became a disbeliever in the myth of 'Western sanctimony' a few decades ago, long before the Internet, and using the aforementioned mental faculties. Look, it's not brain surgery!
World War Two (the war to end all wars) ended in 1945. Barely five years later, the US got involved in a war half a world away when they decided to project their power in the region to prevent a client of the USSR from extending into South Korea. Using the now-familiar tactics of 'convincing' the UN into supporting US interests, and cajoling NATO allies into a willing coalition, the US engaged in a proxy war with its nemesis, the Soviet Union. After appalling numbers of casualties, hostilities ceased in 1953, and both adversaries went back to their pre-war positions on either side of the 38th parallel of the peninsula.

Along came the 1960s, and the US government, employing a classic false-flag, gun-boat incident (search 'Bay of Tonkin incident') maneuvered itself into its next big conflict, the Vietnam war. Citizens of the 'free world' were supposed to believe that the US had to win this war to prevent the world from falling under Communism. Well, after seven terrible years of blood-shed, the US had to sue for peace with the North Vietnamese; and, wonder of wonders, the world did NOT fall to global Communism! Nonetheless, 60,000 US soldiers paid for this travesty with their lives, while more than a million Vietnamese were slaughtered. Nothing gained, politically; but heck, a few US military contractors/suppliers made a fortune from selling weapons and materiel. Others made a fortune running drugs, as depicted wryly in the movie Air America.

As if the ruination of Vietnam was insufficient sacrifice to the gods of mayhem, the USG also bombed large parts of Cambodia and Laos, with the intention of disrupting Viet Cong supply lines. To this day, all three Asian nations are still dealing with the deadly aftermath of unexploded ordinance, including cluster bombs and land mines that are still killing innocent civilians. In Vietnam, the American gift that keeps on giving is the chemical pollution from Agent Orange, a defoliant used to strip the jungles of their protective foliage. As a consequence of its use, many Vietnamese children were born with terrible birth defects, damning them to short and miserable lives in hospitals.

Then we reach the 1970s, and instead of sending in the army, the US gov't now sends their subversive arm, the CIA, to do the dirty work. This time, they were again fighting the dreaded Communism, now in the freely-elected gov't of Chile. Leveraging domestic opposition groups, the CIA instigated a coup against president-elect Salvador Allende, killing him and installing a puppet leader who was ready to do as the corporatocracy in DC wanted. This intervention became well-known, even discussed in the mainstream media, and was to become a blueprint for similar illegal interference in a number of other countries throughout Latin America. (Study Peru, Bolivia, Columbia, Paraguay, etc.).

In the 1980s came the Reagan years, and now the CIA was running amok in Central America. As usual by now, the bogieman was Communism, this time 'in our back-yard.' The US created a 'school' on American soil (the 'School of the Americas') to train 'insurgents' (rebels) in the grisly techniques of overthrowing a legitimate government. This fact also was reported in the 'msm' for those interested. The curriculum included torture methods and the terrorization of the civilian population, and was diligently followed by its graduates in places like Guatemala, Nicaragua, and El Salvador. It makes for sickening study; but it's all available for those with the stomach.

Reagan's gov't also found time to send the brave troops of the USA to invade the bothersome island of Grenada, in 1983. Those irritating Grenadians had the gall to elect a 'Communist' government, so naturally, it had to be eradicated post haste, by the world's self-appointed protector of capitalism... 'oops, that's democracy, of course!

By the close of the '80s, we had the fall of the Berlin wall, and the collapse of the USSR. That historic event was supposed to bring a 'peace dividend,' as the West could then beat their swords into ploughs, metaphorically. The next decade barely began when the Bush (Sr.) administration baited Saddam Hussein into invading Kuwait, then launched a 'coalition' attack from southern Iraq. It was carnage, as latest-generation Western weapons devastated Iraqi soldiers and equipment. For whatever reasons, Bush left Saddam in power, and the US troops withdrew. Haliburton and other US companies made a fortune rebuilding the destroyed oil facilities of Kuwait.

Then came the 1990s, and fully addicted to war, the US cast about for its next catastrophe. The dart fell on Yugoslavia, which was an unstable collection of nations vulnerable to a trigger event. Using CIA subterfuge, the USG lit the fuse that blew up the Balkans in a bloody, internecine conflict that was used by the US to drag NATO into a 'humanitarian intervention' causing more useless deaths. The fighting finally petered out once the fragmentation of Yugoslavia was complete, and Western-friendly regimes in place.

That brings us to the turn of the century, 2001, and we all know what happened in September that year. I won't belabor the ineluctable signs of 'inside job.' The event was used as the justification for (going on) two decades of non-stop destruction from the US-led rampage in the Middle East. Despite naming 15 of the 19 high-jackers of '9-11' as coming from Saudi Arabia, the US invaded Afghanistan, one of the poorest countries on Earth. The claimed pretext for this attack kept shifting as each new excuse wore obviously thin. Fifteen years later, the US is still embroiled in that land; has spent billions of dollars; still has achieved nothing but devastation. Does that not tell you something? Oh, but the poppy farms are booming, and the CIA is making millions from the heroin trade... after the damn Taliban had shut them down.

In 2003, Mr. Bush (Jr.) decided he had to invade Iraq and 'finish the job' left by dad. Using every manner of twisted 'evidence' for 'weapons of mass destruction,' and performing show-and-tell at the UN, the US once again invaded Iraq, destroying the infrastructure, deposing Saddam, and installing a suitable US puppet regime. Mission accomplished, as Georgie said!

The Iraq war has dragged on for years, again costing billions of dollars, over a million civilian casualties, and creating irreparable social fissures. Oh, and creating a breeding ground for future 'jihadis' as factions continue to fight each other, to this day. It's pretty clear that most Iraqis would have preferred life under Saddam's secular regime than living in the debris of 'liberated' Iraq, breathing air contaminated by depleted uranium dust.

Next, US sights were set on Libya, the most successful state in Africa under Moamar Gaddaffi. Rather than barge in as they had done in the previous misadventures, the US gov't resorted to an older strategy from the CIA play-book. With money and deception, they stirred up whatever anti-regime sentiment could be mustered, sent in gangs of zealous jihadis from neighboring countries, then once the chaos began, they volunteered 'humanitarian intervention' to prevent excessive civilian casualties. How noble! That intervention was paraded as merely NATO air support for the insurgents, but resulted in the grisly death of Gaddaffi, and the end of his regime. That nation has been in chaos ever since its 'liberation.'

Still not satisfied with the death and demolition they caused in the Middle East, the administration of Barack Obama, Nobel Peace Prize winner, declared that 'Assad must go' in the once-thriving nation of Syria. Once again, flimsy pretexts were established for the US to 'approve' the invasion of Syria by 'moderate rebels' (or moderate terrorists!) who flocked in to join the 'extreme rebels' called ISIS (or ISIL, or just IS) who mysteriously and suddenly appeared on the scene armed, trained, equipped, and intent on establishing an 'Islamic caliphate' in the Levant. Amazing! And, did you notice they were driving fleets of Toyota trucks of the type manufactured in Texas? Also, that they show no interest in Israel... except for the medical/military aid they get from Israel?

Five years of horrific fighting via these proxy armies, and again, nothing has been achieved in Syria but the destruction of infrastructure and the displacement of millions of citizens as refugees. When the US saw that their ISIS forces were failing in their mission to topple al-Assad, they got progressively more involved-- with 'advisors' (i.e. special forces on the ground) and airborne attacks on gov't soldiers. Seeing this transparent treachery, the Russian gov't knew they had to assist Assad or Syria would fall. Then it would be Iran, and the encirclement of Russia by hostile, Western-backed enemies would be irreversible.

As I write, the situation in Syria has gone from bad to worse. US aircraft have attacked Syrian gov't forces, then excused it as a 'mistake' (amazing how many mistakes the US makes). Then they attacked a convoy of trucks delivering aid to eastern Aleppo... tho in true psychopath style, they bare-faced blamed Russia! The arrogance of the USG is beyond all bounds; their spokespersons can lie with utter smugness, never missing a beat.

If things are going rapidly awry in the Middle East, it isn't the only place where 'US interests' necessitated foolish stirring of dangerous currents. In 2004, the US fostered a relatively quiet 'orange revolution' in Ukraine, but it failed to result in the installation of a Western-biased regime. So... with the investment of a mere five billion dollars over as many years, the CIA with funding from George Soros, fomented a second insurrection against the legitimately elected government. Once the chaos got out of hand, the president, Yanukovitch, fled to Moscow, and the already-designated US puppets, lead by Yatsenyuk, quickly assumed power. That's called exporting democracy, by American apologists.

The situation in Ukraine has been extremely tenuous since that ill-advised meddling. Their financial status is very shaky, with loan after loan of millions of euros doing little to alleviate the growing debts. When the Russian-speaking regions of the country saw the game-- the putsch by veritable Nazis-- they seceded from the nation and declared independence. Since then, battles were fought until a tenuous cease-fire was arranged in the 'Minsk Agreements.'

Being an 'exceptional empire,' the USA has projected its imperial reach virtually everywhere on the planet. Not surprisingly, the attainment of sufficient wealth by China to rival the US has led inevitably to points of conflict. Co-opted Western media see no reason to question the American contention that they must be free to navigate in waters off the coast of China, even with warships or military aircraft. Whether the same media would be so sanguine if Chinese warships were to sail the Gulf of Mexica is a moot point for them.

For brevity's sake, I haven't even mentioned a number of other places on this planet that also fell under the misfortune of needing US interference. Places like Somalia, Venezuela, South Ossetia, Nigeria, and the list goes on. You can find full summaries (or details if you want) on the Web, for hours of reading enlightenment. Frankly, it staggers the mind.

All of the information presented above is and was readily available in the mainstream media, from the 1950s to the present. Sure, every incident, taken separately, had its 'bs' pretext. But-- does it take a genius to 'connect the dots?' Who's the bad guy here? What country has caused more death and mayhem world-wide over the past century than Uncle Sam? There's simply no justification whatsoever for such blatant evil. By the laws of Karma, or however you understand universal morality, the USA is due for one heck of a pay-back... any time soon.

This ugly conclusion may come as a shock to some die-hard patriots who disingenuously believed with all their heart that their homeland was the only source of good in a world gone bad. But, come on, you just read the facts as they are; you can verify them all easily. To continue to support such unbridled evil would be to add your name to the chronicle of shame! To whine that you didn't know what was going on in your country, that you were too busy, that you don't care about 'politics', well, sorry, but none of that will spare you from participating in the recompense to come. You gave de facto consent, maybe even cheered 'USA, USA' when watching the propaganda on TV. Now you will reap the whirlwind. Better start praying, dear American reader!
