Hat tip to Ayatollah Khomeini who correctly identified the United States as the "Great Satan" 4 decades ago. Like Nietzsche's madman, his claim drew derision and laughter, but it was only because he spoke before his time. Events in the ME these last 3 decades have proven his assessment to be correct. How much damage to innocents has US foreign policy been responsible for? A reckoning of biblical proportions is due.

It should be noted that prior to the Civil War (boy, have events these last 3 years caused me to reassess that conflict), some in Lincoln's "team of rivals" proposed starting a war with some pipsqueak Latin American country in order to rekindle a spirit of patriotism and unite the country. Governments do rotten, evil things.

That we haven't had a false flag yet may be due to some residual sanity within the elite producing some small degree of caution. These days there are a lot of cameras, and a lot of eyeballs. An event of sufficient magnitude to provide casus belli would by its nature attract a great degree of attention. The political situation means that much of that attention would be immediately skeptical. Should the hive mind determine that a false flag was indeed a false flag, the blowback could become intense. Every previous time a false flag was attempted, there was far less possibility for scrutiny, while the government in those days enjoyed much higher levels of legitimacy. In the current context it might not go their way.

“false flag to juice support for a war”

Somehow this brings the 5th and 6th odd numbers to mind.

War is an industry. We spend billions and trillions destroying, and billions and trillions “rebuilding”. Those who receive the checks are mostly the same in both cases, and those who labor and toil for the money to write the checks (and their children, and grandchildren) never see commensurate benefit. And those whose children, brothers and sisters, husbands and wives, fathers and mothers are sacrificed on the altar of war profits sustain a loss that can never be recovered.

Don’t participate. Don’t be fooled into participating. Don’t be coerced into participating. Don’t be part of the plan to distract from the mess they have created right here.

“I spent 33 years and four months in active military service and during that period I spent most of my time as a high class muscle man for Big Business, for Wall Street and the bankers. In short, I was a racketeer, a gangster for capitalism. I helped make Mexico and especially Tampico safe for American oil interests in 1914. I helped make Haiti and Cuba a decent place for the National City Bank boys to collect revenues in. I helped in the raping of half a dozen Central American republics for the benefit of Wall Street. I helped purify Nicaragua for the International Banking House of Brown Brothers in 1902-1912. I brought light to the Dominican Republic for the American sugar interests in 1916. I helped make Honduras right for the American fruit companies in 1903. In China in 1927 I helped see to it that Standard Oil went on its way unmolested. Looking back on it, I might have given Al Capone a few hints. The best he could do was to operate his racket in three districts. I operated on three continents.”

We stood up for what was right, we fought for moral reasons, we passed laws, struck down laws for moral reasons. We waged wars on poverty, not poor people. We sacrificed, we cared about our neighbours, we put our money where our mouths were, and we never beat our chest. We built great big things, made ungodly technological advances, explored the universe, cured disease, and we cultivated the world's greatest artists and the world's greatest economy. We reached for the stars, acted like men. We aspired to intelligence, we didn't belittle it, it didn't make us feel inferior. We didn't identify ourselves by who we voted for in the last election, and we didn't scare so easy.

The Army is short 40% recruits for the reasons you cite.

Just last week, the Army ordered hundreds of service members in other occupations to pack and report for training to become "instant" recruiters.

It's bad.

Real bad.

The tip of the spear, the USAF who fly, the specops guys who actually fight, and the best military leaders have all left rather than take the illegal and medically debilitating poison they term a "vaccine."

They ruined a once great military organization in less than 3 years.

Your advice to avoid the Satanic cult leaders until they are gone before thinking about joining is the same advice I give potential recruits.

And we are not alone in this.

I pray everyday that this road to Hell ends.

Thank you.

Israel [US] were happy to give the Gaza desert back to the Palestinians. and then those dumb suckers had to go and discover oil and gas just off-shore. Like the US is going to allow Arabs to have oil without paying for the privilege.

If God did not love the Arabs, why did he give them all the oil?

".. we fought for moral reasons, .... We waged wars on poverty, not poor people..."

It was when he was suspended from boxing for refusing to be drafted into the Vietnam War. He was attending a rally for fair housing in Louisville when he said, "Why should they ask me to put on a uniform and go 10,000 miles from home and drop bombs and bullets on Brown people in Vietnam while so-called Negro people in Louisville are treated like dogs and denied simple human rights? No I’m not going 10,000 miles from home to help murder and burn another poor nation simply to continue the domination of white slave masters of the darker people the world over. This is the day when such evils must come to an end. I have been warned that to take such a stand would cost me millions of dollars. But I have said it once and I will say it again. The real enemy of my people is here. I will not disgrace my religion, my people or myself by becoming a tool to enslave those who are fighting for their own justice, freedom and equality…. If I thought the war was going to bring freedom and equality to 22 million of my people they wouldn’t have to draft me, I’d join tomorrow. I have nothing to lose by standing up for my beliefs. So I’ll go to jail, so what? We’ve been in jail for 400 years."

Bill Russell said it best in 1967. “I’m not worried about Muhammad Ali. I’m worried about the rest of us.” That is more true than ever.

Why would any man want to join a “gay army for girls”? How embarrassing.

Four years active, ten reserve, Airborne Ranger Infantry, and the thing I find most upsetting is the twitter comments in the link you provided to the Army’s recruiting ad. I fear we are at the end of the great American experiment. I have always believed that if we made the old men and politicians fight the wars we would eternally be at peace. At age 71, I am more convinced than ever.

100%. courageous essay. Btw below was my greeting to Vindman when he joined Substack. Has 72 likes now.

“Vindman, 4 of my brothers and I served in the US military, all with honorable discharges. You’re a disgrace to the uniform and to America. Take your neocon ass and friends to the Ukraine and Israel and stop lobbying for our kids to die in foreign lands for foreign powers. “

As discussed this is a real world hard calculation; leaving the artillery and the rest to others hands them victory if they want it, certainly the victor decides.

If the joggers and trannys have the tanks and artillery they win- ask HAMAS.

Or the actual Viet Cong.

Or the actual IRA.

Please forget rifles, artillery/air is 85% of casualties, 10% machine guns, 5% rifles. It’s a scam.

As to guerrilla warfare : it doesn’t work unless the well armed opponent cripples their army for public opinion- guerrillas on their own are an annoyance or distraction and are gone in days to months at most if the army facing them is ruthless.

Guerrilla warfare just another romantic lie.

And without logistics which requires organization and money its over before it starts < we are here... ^^^

So it’s a hard choice for hard times.

Your suggestion is

Hard Times = No Men...

well then Strong Trannys make good times - for themselves.

File under Libertarian NAP.

Not to mention training.

What if they gave a war and nobody showed up?

Hard Times = No Men?


Ok, then you better get your own army to stay home and take care of family... because no, you won’t hold off even 4 men coming at the house, or 2 on the street.

No, you won’t.

Yes Briggs IT SUCKS.

But Dead without a chance SUCKS WORSE.

The people even women with the tanks and artillery win. Even Vibrants, even Trannys. Big guns win, NOT assault rifles? Even mortars go 3000-7000 meters. No rifle does.

It doesn’t matter if you can take the CNO with one hand.

Not if she has Air or missiles- she does.

One Hand? Exactly 1 friend of mine has been hand to hand that I know personally in the last 30 years. - and he was wrestling the enemy for the rifle, stabbed him, then shot him dead on the ground. HAND?

ONE. Sure I read of other cases, I only know 1. One.

You want a good solution?

Too fucking bad. I only have the actual one; keep the artillery, which means fall in.

Stay home with the women?

Why? So you can watch what happens to them with your last moments?

Sorry: FAIL .

How many of you remember the time the USA supplied Indonesia with weapons of war in the 1970s, goading them to retake their traditional territories in Australia's Top End? And the reason it never materialised? The Indonesian general put in charge of the impending invasion of the Northern Territory realised, "If America does this to their lap dog 'ally', Australia, what will they do to us?"
