US Farce of the Drone

by Jack D. Douglas: The
U.S. 'Secret' War Against Iran
The U.S. Lies
about the top-secret U.S. Stealth Drone the Iranians have now put
on world display completely intact is typical of the U.S. Big Lies
about almost everything important to their Global Empire, obviously
including the existence of that U.S. Global Empire. First they denied
it in non-denial denials in case the Iranians did have it, then
they said it crashed somewhere unknown to the U.S., then they said
it must have drifted by malfunction into Iran, then when the Iranians
showed the first pictures of it in-tact – not all crumpled up as
it would be if it crashed from high altitude malfunction – the U.S.
said it was not the right color or size, and finally when it was
fully displayed they demanded its return on the presumption that
they were not violating international law by spying in this way
The whole U.S.
Farce of the Drone exposes the U.S. once again as run by fools and
total Liars routinely violating laws, treaties decency and every
other human standard.
But this is
merely a somewhat more ludicrous U.S. display of what it has really
become. This is SOP for the U.S. Every time it slaughters women
and children in Iraq, Somalia, Afghanistan, Pakistan and around
the world the U.S does the same ludicrous display of denials, counter-charges
and on and on. SOP.
person who follows world events believes anything the U.S. says
unless it is verified by really independent sources. I doubt that
anyone I know and take seriously even bothers laughing at the U.S.
ludicrous displays of lies these days. It's all so routine it's
boring – but utterly evil and ghastly, so no one really wants to
think much about it.
This is true
of intelligent and knowledgeable Americans in general. It is only
roughly the lower half of Americans in intelligence and knowledge
who are so cut off from the real world and so incapable of thinking
clearly who even bother to discuss these U.S. ludicrous Lies. A
perfect example is the big front page article in the San Diego Union-Tribune
today marking the "withdrawal of U.S. forces from Iraq" about whether
invading Iraq and killing hundreds of thousands of innocent people
over the past eight years was "worth" it. How stupid can you get?
No intelligent person in touch with the world would imagine that
this vast disaster and evil slaughter could possibly be worth it
to anyone other than a sadistic fool. Most returning U.S. troops
keep their mouths shut or hem and haw. They are not that stupid
and they want benefits. But some journalists and a few brainless
grunts say maybe it will prove worthwhile. Most are probably lying,
but some Americans really are that ignorant and that stupid, though
I don't encounter any in my everyday life.
Even NBC News
and other Media keep muttering, as Koppel did last evening, that
the U.S. is not really "withdrawing" from Iraq, but is leaving 16,000
mostly "security" people and huge numbers on bases all around southern
Iraq and building the largest "Embassy" in the world in Iraq and
on and on. They don't come right out and say this is all SOP Obama
Lies and Bull Shit, but that's what they mean.
SOP U.S. Lies
and Bull Shit. That's what America is to the world now and even
the intelligent and knowledgeable Americans now take it for granted.
become an incredible farce to the whole world.
