U.S. War Against the World
Jack D. Douglas
by Jack D. Douglas: The
US Massacre Mentality
U.S. Global Strangulation of Iran has nothing to do in the short
or intermediate terms with any fear Iran will get a nuclear weapon.
American intelligence and former heads of Israel's Mossad agree
with the international assessment that there is no evidence Iran
is now trying to produce nuclear weapons or that they could do so
in less than several to ten years if they tried to do so. There
is also nearly universal agreement among serious analysts, including
U.S. intelligence sources going back many years, that attacking
Iran would likely lead to severe cuts in oil supplies from the Persian
Gulf that would produce a severe shock to the global economy, especially
in this time of financial crisis.
not mean Obama or the entire U.S. leadership at the top is going
insane or trying to destroy the U.S. Empire. There is a "method
to this seeming madness," a very clear grand strategic goal involved
in these constant threats and attacks on Iran. The general goal
is to save the U.S. Empire and its domination and exploitation of
the world to stop the accelerating decline and disintegration of
the Empire and the American financial system and economy. The specific
goal of all the attacks on Iran is to stop the rise of the Iranian-Shia
superpower in the Middle East and its rapidly growing alliance with
Islamist Sunni powers growing across North Africa, the Middle East,
South Central and Central Asia.
Iran is also
the core leader in the growing alliance of Shia and Islamist Sunnis
with the vast nations of Russia, India and China against the U.S.
Empire's energy and dollar imperialism.
all of this
makes Iran and its allies a mortal threat to the U.S. global empire
and the present U.S. financial system tied to that empire. this
is why the U.S. is taking such desperate risks to try to strangle
Iran and to destroy its central position in this anti-American imperialism
coalition that is growing rapidly.
Iran and its
Shia Allies across the whole Middle East are a very real threat
to the U.S. Global Empire's domination and exploitation of this
whole vast region. That Iranian superpower Shia bloc's rapidly growing
alliance with Islamist Sunnis makes Iran the core of a very grave
threat to the U.S. global empire which I believe has already developed
far enough to prevent the U.S. from continuing its imperialist suppression
of muslim nations with totalitarian, puppet regimes and the use
of those to exploit this vast region.
Iran and all of the Shia and Islamist Sunni nations allying more
and more closely with Iran, most obviously Syria right now, the
U.S. is in fact turning the vast Muslim World of nearly one and
a half billion mostly young and very fertile people and much of
the rest of the world against its brutal Empire.
grand strategy has, therefore, put the existence of the U.S. empire
and of the U.S. financial system dependent on it at grave risk.
at the very least, the U.S. is "going for broke" – "playing for
all the marbles" – in its blatantly brutal, imperialistic strangulation
of Iran and now some of its allies such as Syria.
The U.S. destroyed
the Sunni block to the rise of Shia Iran as a Super Power in the
Middle East when it destroyed Hussein's Iraqi military machine,
which the U.S. had earlier secretly supported in Iraq's vast invasion
of Iran [which led to the defeat of Iraq and the U.S.] Sunni Iraq
was the only major block to the rise of the Shia as a Super Power
at the heart of the Middle East. When the U.S. also installed a
totalitarian Shia military power in Iraq which from the beginning
was quietly allied with their brother Shia in Iran [where many of
the new rulers of Iraq had lived for many years to escape Hussein's
secret police], the new, rising Shia Super Alliance of Iran and
Iraq became a huge military power of 100,000,000 mostly young people
who loathe the U.S. and control more oil and gas than the Saudi
Arabian and UAE puppets of the U.S. Iran was by then already building
its Super Alliance with Syria, Hizbollah in Lebanon and Hamas in
Palestine, an Alliance at the very heart of the Arab World and the
Middle East. That alliance grew very rapidly after Hizbollah defeated
Israel and drove them out of Lebanon for the second time.
over a year ago the U.S. puppet Sunni regimes across North Africa
started falling to popular revolutions against the puppets and,
above all, against the U.S. Empire which replaced the U.K. and French
Empires that had oppressed them earlier. The revolutions are still
going on in almost every U.S. Sunni puppet nation, but in almost
all of them the people are winning their revolutions and moving
steadily into a new age of Islamist governments which are in fact
very anti-American and becoming more so as the U.S. allys itself
more and more openly with the most hated totalitarian regimes, such
as the Egyptian Army. the absurd, monarchical and pseudo-democratic
tyrannies in Saudi Arabia, the UAE, Yemen and a few others.
From the beginning
of these new Sunni Islamist movements and governments, the Iranians
and their Shia allies have allied themselves more and more with
the Sunni Islamists, based largely on their common loathing of the
Great Satan – the U.S. – and the terrorist threat it poses to all
of them. Turkey has not had an Islamist revolution, but the Sunni
Islamists are taking over more and more in Turkey and becoming more
and more Islamist, more and more anti-American and more and more
quietly allied with the Iranians and the rising Sunni Islamists.
At the same
time the U.S. was enraging the people of the Middle East against
itself, the U.S. was enraging the Afghans and Pakistanis in the
same way only more virulently with its terrorist murders and raids
everywhere. The hearts and minds of nearly 200,000,000 Afghans and
Pakistanis are now virulently anti-American. Though they are not
yet allied with the rising Iranian Super Alliance, they are becoming
more friend;y and will almost certainly find more and more common
causes against the U.S. as the U.S. and its European [Nato] puppets
flee the rising power of the Islamist guerilla armies. The U.S.
has lost its terrorist war against Afghanistan and Pakistan and
pushed them closer and closer to both iran and china, and even to
some degree india and russia, to counter-balance the u.s. in its
final desperate war against the world.
All of these
vast developments are being hidden from the American and European
peoples as much as possible by vast propaganda Media Wars against
Iran and its grand global alliance against the U.S. But intelligent
leaders around the world see the U.S. is desperate and is losing
and even in Latin America the few remaining puppet regimes of the
U.S. Empire, notably Mexico and Colombia, are turning more and more
against the U .S. even in full public view. This happened just this
weekend in Cartagena, Colombia, where Obama and his motley crowd
of Key Stone Cop "security guards" were publicly humiliated by the
still partially puppet regime of Colombia which needs vast U.S.
military help in oppressing the peasants of the North for the vastly
rich landowning families of the South. All 30 Latin Leaders there
opposed even a future meeting of this sort with the U.S. without
the U.S. allowing Cuba to attend and almost all insist as well on
an end for support of the U.K. puppet regime's claims to the Falklands
off the coast of Argentina. Hugo Chavez, the elected president of
Venezuela, was not even there because he is getting more cancer
treatment in Cuba [not Miami]. He is more and more an ally of Iran,
as is even Brazil on crucial matters like opposition to Dollar Imperialism
and Inflation Thievery. Had he and his few very close allies from
Latin America, Ecuador and Nicaragua, been there, the anti-American
thrust would have been even greater. As it is, the Cartagena police
wound up mortally embarrassing the Secret Key Stone Cops, the U.S.
Army and Obama by taking U.S. security guards into custody over
refusal to pay a prostitution bill for servicing rendered. Obama
et al were made a laughing stock in a way that never happened before
when these terrorized nations were ruled by oppressed puppet regimes.
[Like Congressman Issa, I think these were SOP activities which
led to police custody and massive public exposure for the first
time. The U.S. Empire is losing its grip even on still dependent
The U.S. has
gotten very desperate in the Middle East. It is not only risking
a cut off of oil by Iran over the U.S. strangulation of Iran, but
the U.S. is now more and more openly involved in supporting the
Sunni revolt against Syria and the Sunni oppression of Shia revolt
against Bahrain by Saudia Arabia, the only major U.S. puppet left
in the Middle East and a tyrannical monarchy loathed by the whole
vast region and its own population [as far as we can tell in such
an extremely closed police state].
It is always
possible the U.S. will realize it is risking its entire Empire in
this grand strategy, or that Iran will buckle under the strangulation
pressures and retreat, or an Iranian ally like Syria will start
a war inadvertently with another, more important ally, Sunni Turkey,
that might reverse the growing great alliance. Maybe the U.S. will
become more wise in its mix of sticks and carrots in dealing with
But I think
these would be temporary set-backs for Iran and its great alliance
of nations lining up against the U.S. Empire. I think the world
sees the Giant is crippled severely by its losing wars, by the decline
of the U.S. economy relative to the rising nations around the world,
the so-called BRICKS, though one must add another I to that for
Iran [in addition to India] – BRICKS, and The Great Global Financial
Crisis the U.S. produced and is making worse and worse with vast
help from its puppets in the EU and elsewhere, as even the "liberal"
Brookings Institute just reported on the basis of global indices
I think the
U.S. is desperately fighting its last great imperial war against
the world. I think the U.S. will lose this WAR and destroy its Empire
and its global financial system. Obama has become the Undertaker
of the U.S. Global Empire and, if he and his desperate strategists
keep attacking the world, he will be the Undertaker of the U.S.
as it now exists. By all indications, they will continue to destroy
the U.S. unless some greater power, perhaps a Great Awakening of
the American people who would prefer not to be impoverished or torn
apart by the Obama Undertaker Strategy.
