A century of deceit: World wars and Zionist militarism

The culprits responsible for this genocidal campaign to subdue and enslave the Iraqi people are not the CEOs of American oil companies as some disingenuous commentators on the Left have claimed. President George W. Bush’s foreign policy in the Middle East was not his own nor that of the oil lobby, but was the brainchild of the neoconservative conspirators behind the Project for the New American Century (PNAC), the Jewish Institute for National Security Affairs (JINSA), the American Enterprise Institute (AEI) and other Zionist-oriented think tanks that dominated the Washington Beltway.

Three of Bush’s principal foreign policy advisors who are widely recognized as the prime movers behind the war in Iraq were neocon ideologues Richard Perle, Douglas Feith and Paul Wolfowitz, all of whom have well-documented histories of Israeli partisanship. Perle and Wolfowitz, for instance, were both investigated by the FBI in the 1980s for passing classified defence documents to Israel.  Perle was once an employee of the Israeli weapons firm Soltam.  Writers for the New York Times described Wolfowitz as one of Israel’s “staunchest allies” in the Bush administration and revealed that Wolfowitz “is friendly with Israel’s generals and diplomats” and that he is “something of a hero to the heavily Jewish neoconservative movement.”   Feith once ran a law firm in Israel and received an award from the Zionist Organization of America for his “services to Israel and the Jewish people.”  The New Yorker revealed that Feith even has a portrait of Zionism’s founder Theodore Herzl hanging on the wall of his home library.  It was Feith and his neocon Zionist colleague Abram Shulsky who oversaw the secretive “Office of Special Plans” in the Pentagon where all of the lies about Iraq’s “weapons of mass destruction” were conceived and disseminated. 

Why No One Should Still Be a Neocon (II)

Jonathan Tobin picks up on a questionable argument about Game of Thrones to celebrate George W. Bush’s foreign policy record:
Whatever happened in Iraq or Afghanistan, President Bush and those who helped craft that “freedom agenda” that is so despised by his immediate successor stood up for the highest values of Western civilization [bold mine-DL].

They Think They Know How to Pick Successful Presidential Candidates

“They” are the neocons who run the Republican Party.  Having chosen Bob Dole, John McCain, and Mitt Romney, they are now promoting the only two “acceptable” candidates:  Chris “I will gladly pay you Tuesday, for a hamburger today,”  SaveFrom.netChristie, and Jeb “Bob Dole is my role model” Bush.
So far, Christie seems to be the favorite since, in the course of kissing the ass of Sheldon Adelson, the billionaire Zionist Las Vegas gambling mogul and GOP sugardaddy, he announced to the assembled crowd that the Republican Party needs to just forget about “ideas” and focus on winning elections instead.  Not ideas like nuking Iran, Adelson’s Number One Priority in Life, but ideas like economic freedom, limited government, constitutionalism, free enterprise, personal liberty, sound money, and especially libertarianism.

Ukraine and Latin America: Same neocon cabal behind political disruption

The neocons are as an influencing factor in America’s foreign policy today as they were during the darkest days of the Bush administration. The coup d’état by globalist bankers allied with neo-Nazis and Zionist cadres in Ukraine is linked through several neocon operations in Washington, DC, to the aggressive push by the United States to topple progressive governments and politicians in Latin America.
And with the arch-neocon former U.S. ambassador to Lebanon, Jeffrey Feltman, now serving as the Undersecretary General of the United Nations for Political Affairs, the United States can enlist the United Nations and the “Slippery Eel,” the name South Korean journalists applied to Ban Ki-moon, to provide cover for its covert operations in Ukraine, Russia, Moldova, Georgia, Venezuela, Colombia, El Salvador, and other targeted nations.

Neocons hastened demise of US empire – Prof Kevin Barret

As the US attempts to rule the world from Washington through the use of force and a policy of aggressive war the neocon architects have overlooked the fact that the military depends on the economy and the US economy is hallowed out and on the verge of collapse. Countries such as Russia and China with strong economies will rise while the US neocon who came to power in a 9-11 coup d'état have only hastened the demise of the very empire that they were intended to prop up. This was stated in an interview with Professor Kevin Barret, who characterized Zbignew Brzezinski and the neocons as complete fanatical militarists zio-nazis that want to attack anybody and are even happy to attack Russia and threaten the world with WWIII.

New report reveals how ‘American neocons’ stage attacks against alternative media

An extensive account of the days and minutes leading up to Wahl’s remarks and public denunciation of “propaganda” tactics during her news segment on March 5 by authors Max Blumenthal and Rania Khalek via truthdig has revealed connections with the little known neoconservative think-tank Foreign Policy Initiative.

FPI was founded in 2009 by a group of high-profile neo-conservative figures, including Robert Kagan and William Kristol, founder of the Weekly Standard, who themselves were cofounders of the Project for the New American Century (PNAC) -- an organization that played a key role in advocating for the US invasion of Iraq by the Bush administration following the 9/11 terrorist attacks by Al-Qaeda.

Neocons’ Ukraine-Syria-Iran Gambit

You might think that policymakers with so many bloody fiascos on their résumés as the U.S. neocons, including the catastrophic Iraq War, would admit their incompetence and return home to sell insurance or maybe work in a fast-food restaurant. Anything but directing the geopolitical decisions of the world’s leading superpower.

But Official Washington’s neocons are nothing if not relentless and resilient. They are also well-funded and well-connected. So they won’t do the honorable thing and disappear. They keep hatching new schemes and strategies to keep the world stirred up and to keep their vision of world domination – and particularly “regime change” in the Middle East – alive.

Non-interventionists vs. the neocon war party: It's time for a showdown

Also blaming Obama for Crimea, John McCain got cheers at AIPAC by charging, “This is the ultimate result of a feckless foreign policy in which nobody believes in America’s strength anymore.”

This “blatant act” of aggression “cannot stand,” said McCain.

Obama’s Former Foreign Policy Adviser Said – In 1997 – that the U.S. Had to Gain Control of Ukraine

Neoconservatives planned regime change throughout the Middle East and North Africa 20 years ago. Robert Parry correctly points out that the Neocons have successfully “weathered the storm” of disdain after their Iraq war fiasco.
But the truth is that Obama has long done his best to try to implement those Neocon plans.
Similarly, ever since the Soviet Union collapsed in 1991, the U.S. has pursued a strategy of encircling Russia, just as it has with other perceived enemies like China and Iran.

Neocons Have Weathered the Storm

At that moment, it looked like the neocons were in serious trouble. Indeed, many of them did have to pack up their personal belongings and depart government, seeking new jobs at think tanks or other neocon-friendly non-governmental organizations (NGOs).

More significantly, their grand strategy seemed discredited. Many Americans considered the neocons’ dream of more “regime change” across the Middle East — in countries opposed to Israel, especially Syria and Iran – to be an unending nightmare of death and destruction.

The Bush-Obama’s neocon foreign policy of isolating Russia and of expanding NATO is a dismal failure

Well, it is precisely this desire to expand NATO and to isolate Russia by incorporating all the countries bordering Russia into NATO, i.e., a strategy of geopolitical and military encirclement of Russia, which has provoked that country when it felt threatened in its national security. 

The truth is that NATO should have been disbanded after the collapse of the Soviet empire in 1991, and especially after the Warsaw Pact was itself dismantled. Europe should have then moved to build an expanded Europe of nations, large, democratic and peaceful, within a framework of economic and political cooperation and peace. But no! The United States wanted to take advantage of the situation and demanded that everything fell into the military-financial U.S. empire.

Neocon Lies Could Trigger Nuclear War

Worse yet, the mainstream media and those who hang on every lie uttered by Clinton and other neocons are indignant over the fate of freedom-loving Ukrainians. Even though Putin is no longer a communist, those who shape American opinions are eager to paint him as a nefarious ex-Red, a former KGB assassin who schemes as Hitler did.
And so begins the latest crusade for the neocons, but this time the crusade is against a resolute Russian leader who commands a modern nuclear arsenal capable of destroying the world several times over. Picking on Putin is not the same game as beating up Saddam or hunting down bin Laden. It has dangerous consequences that have not been thought through since old guard communists like Andrei Gromyko were ousted from the Kremlin in the 1980s..

Reckless in Kiev: Neocons, Putin and Ukraine

A woman for all seasons when it comes to Washington politics, Nuland was at home in the Clinton and Bush administration as she is today at the Obama administration. She served as assistant Vice President Dick Cheney, ambassador to NATO, and an Obama State Department spokesperson before taking on her current position in September 2013.

But there should be no mistaking her ideological leaning. Not only because she's the spouse of leading neoconservative, Robert Kagan. Or, that she's the sister-in-law of another prominent Neocon, Fredrick Kagan and wife Kimberly, both think-tank type military historians.  

Meet James Kirchick: Neocon propagandist

By now I am sure we have all heard about the resignation of Liz Wahl, and the public condemnation of Putin by Abby Martin. Both worked/work for Russia Today, and both have created a media storm here in the west. Apparently Liz Wahl just discovered that she was working for a Russian government funded news outlet and was shocked, shocked I tell you, to discover that they had a bias towards Russia. Liz Wahl of course got her start interning for the always fair and balanced Fox News. In the background of these story’s has been an American propagandist neocon by the name of James Kirchick. Kirchick has been seen in recent days on the three letter corporate controlled news outlets spewing all sorts of lies and slander. He took to MSNBC to call Abby Martin an “out and out lunatic” for questioning the official conspiracy theory of 9/11, and for thinking that industrial fluoride put into our water supply is detrimental to our health. My god what a nut she is!

The Bush-Obama's Neocon Foreign Policy of Isolating Russia and of Expanding NATO is a Dismal Failure

The hazards associated with American foreign policy since the collapse of the Soviet Union in 1991 should appear obvious to all, because it is precisely this policy that has caused the crisis in Ukraine with all its negative consequences for the coming months and years.

President Barack Obama was candid in admitting it on Monday March 3, 2014, when he said that "we are indicating to the Russians [that] if in fact they continue on the current trajectory they’re on, then we are examining a whole series of steps — economic, diplomatic— that will isolate Russia.”

Well, it is precisely this desire to expand NATO and to isolate Russia by incorporating all the countries bordering Russia into NATO, i.e. a strategy of geopolitical and military encirclement of Russia, which has provoked that country when it felt threatened in its national security.

Neocons Move to Exploit Ukraine Crisis

U.S. neocons are wasting little time in taking advantage of the Ukraine crisis that they helped to stoke, with former Reagan-Bush operative Elliott Abrams urging Congress to pass legislation that would impose new sanctions on Iran, notes ex-CIA analyst Paul R. Pillar.

Obama Deflects Neocon Pressure on Syria

The Washington Post’s neocon editorial page is back baiting President Barack Obama to issue more military ultimatums to the Syrian government, presumably with the hope that a failure to comply will get the ball rolling toward another U.S.-enforced ”regime change.”

In one more lead editorial demanding action on Syria, the Post’s editors picked up on a slanted Post news article which had Obama admitting that his diplomatic initiatives are ”failing,” though Obama didn’t use the word in a Tuesday press conference with French President Francois Hollande.

Is Hillary Clinton a Neocon-Lite?

As a U.S. senator and Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton often followed a neocon-style foreign policy, backing the Iraq War, teaming up with Defense Secretary Robert Gates on an Afghan War “surge,” and staking out an even more hawkish stance than Gates on Libya, Robert Parry reports.

Most Democratic power-brokers appear settled on Hillary Clinton as their choice for President in 2016 – and she holds lopsided leads over potential party rivals in early opinion polls – but there are some warning flags flying, paradoxically, hoisted by former Defense Secretary Robert Gates in his praise for the former First Lady, U.S. senator and Secretary of State.

Neocon Watch: Rep. Cathy McMorris Rodgers’ Big Lie

Mrs. WC made WC listen to the entire Official Republican Response to President Obama’s State of the Union speech last week. This was the Official Response as delivered by U.S. Rep. Cathy McMorris Rodgers. That’s not to be confused with the other three or four Republican responses, the clearest sign yet of the shattered state of the G.O.P.

What made Rep. Rodgers’ speech so painful to hear was that it was almost entirely content-free. Lots of platitudes and feel good personal narratives; no ideas. But Rep. Rodgers did offer one substantive fact: one of her constituents, “Bette in Spokane,” faced a $700 a month health insurance premium increase “because of Obamacare.” The Spokane-based Spokesman-Review, not exactly a bastion of liberal journalism, tracked down “Bette in Spokane” and the full story is utterly different.

Marco Rubio Goes Neocon

Potential GOP presidential candidate Sen. Marco Rubio offered a glimpse into how he would act as commander in chief, saying the U.S. should "overtly" arm Syrian rebels. The Florida lawmaker is reportedly mulling a run at the Republican nomination in 2016 and has called for a national and foreign policy that is more in line with the hawkish interventionism of 2008 presidential nominee Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., than Obama's narrower approach that requires a direct and clear U.S. interest.

If Rubio wins the White House in 2016, that might change. The potential Republican candidate, in a statement issued late Wednesday, revealed an interventionist flavor to the foreign and national security policy approach he would bring to the White House Situation Room.

Rubio blasted the Obama administration, saying "we are going to be living with the consequences of the Obama administration's failed Syria policy for decades to come. It is time for the administration to increase pressure on Assad instead of giving him more room to maneuver," Rubio said, in an apparent reference to Obama's decision last year to hold off on air strikes when Assad agreed to give up his chemical weapons.

The bloody shirt

"Neocon war hawks" upset at the resurgence of Sunni and al Quaeda in Anbar in Iraq are waving the "bloody shirt" to invoke the memory of Fallujah, urging U.S. intervention. To understand the Middle East it is necessary to have a map of the area, be aware of who borders who and who are Sunni and who are Shia.

Iraq, was a Sunni dominated state with a large Shia minority until the US invasion in 2003. Iraq had fought an inconclusive war against Shia dominated Iran, from 1980 to 1988, ending in a stalemate. Iraq remained a counter balance to Iran.

Iran's long-term rival, Saudi Arabia, is Sunni dominated, and with its powerful economic position has rivaled Iran for control of the Persian Gulf promoting jihadists, like al Quaeda, and spreading its hard line wahhabi brand of Islam. 

Neocon take on the imaginary afghan pullout: “a win for al-CIA-duh”

During his State of the Union speech, Obama said he will end the decade-plus occupation of Afghanistan in 2014. This may be another one of Obama’s illusory promises (remember you can keep your doctor and closing down Gitmo?), but that didn’t stop a key neocon from climbing up on his hobby horse and demanding more tax money and USAian lives be flushed down a rat hole. Frederick Kagan, a neocon darling at the pro-illegal war American Enterprise Institute think tank, wrote on Jan 27 in the WSJ that leaving Afghanistan would amount to a victory for AQ, and he expanded on this to Faux News after Obama’s teleprompter recitation. But then we should expect Kagan to say this, since the war in Afghanistan is one of his pet projects. Back in December, Rajiv Chandrasekaran writing for the WaPo examined the relationship between Kagan, his wife Kimberly, and David Petraeus back when he was the top US commander in Afghanistan. Chandrasekaran writes:
Although Fred Kagan said he and his wife wanted no pay in part to remain ‘completely independent,’ the extraordinary arrangement raises new questions about the access and influence Petraeus accorded to civilian friends while he was running the Afghan war. The four-star general made the Kagans de facto senior advisers, a status that afforded them numerous private meetings in his office, priority travel across the war zone and the ability to read highly secretive transcripts of intercepted Taliban communications, according to current and former senior US military and civilian officials who served in the headquarters at the time.

Neocons Seek New Ultimatum on Syria

You have to hand it to the neocons; they never give up on their single-minded agenda of promoting wars against Israel’s Muslim “enemies,” even after the disastrous war in Iraq. The big difference now is that the neocon strategy is to endlessly insist that the U.S. government issue ultimatums of war unless a target country acquiesces to some demand.

The apparent neocon hope is that at some point the target won’t or can’t do something, thus requiring a U.S. military assault to maintain American “credibility.” The Washington Post’s neocon editors are the bellwether for this approach as they mix outraged propaganda against the targets with outrage over any perceived “failure” of the targets to comply — and then over President Barack Obama’s hesitancy to act.

Neocons Take Aim at Syrian Peace Talks

The Washington Post’s neoconservative editorial page is still beating the drums for U.S. military intervention in Syria, but its latest demand for violent reprisals against the Syrian government dropped a key element in the previous propaganda campaign: the claim that President Bashar al-Assad had “gassed his own people.”

Without admitting that those earlier Sarin gas allegations have fallen apart, the Post editors simply moved on to new accusations — that the Syrian government tortured thousands of captives who were subsequently killed. Those claims came from an anonymous “defector” who claims he took photographs to document the deaths and then turned the images over to the anti-Assad government of Qatar.

Neocon dominatrix Kimberley Strassel defends Chris Christie

Christie is a governor. Of course his misconduct is on a smaller scale.

But given the powers of the Executive– all indications are that Christie will be every bit the corrupt tyrant that our current Despot-in-Chief is.

Neocons Call for U.S. Military Action Against Al-Qaeda in Iraq

In response to Salafist victories in Fallujah and across Iraq’s al-Anbar province, James M. Dubik, a retired Army lieutenant general, has called for direct U.S. involvement to take on the resurgent terrorist group. “If the United States does not get involved, al-Qaeda is likely to win. None of our options is good. Each has risks, but doing too little also has risks,” Dubik writes for the Washington Post.

Dubik, the former commander of the Multinational Security Transition Command-Iraq and the NATO Training Mission-Iraq, is a senior fellow a senior fellow at the Institute for the Study of War (ISW).

The ISW is a think tank founded by Kimberly Kagan, a member of the neocon Kagan clan. She is married to Frederick Kagan, a resident scholar at the neocon American Enterprise Institute. Frederick Kagan is the brother of Robert Kagan, a co-founder of the Project for the New American Century. Robert Kagan is married to Victoria Nuland, spokesperson for the State Department, and is a member of the influential Aspen Strategy Group, an organization chaired by Brent Scowcroft and staffed with warmongering Bush era neocons, including CFR insiders Richard Armitage and Eliot Cohen. The Aspen Group is funded by the globalist cabal and transnational corporations, including the Rockefeller Brothers. It also takes money from the CIA’s Ford Foundation.

Neocons Who Brought You The Iraq War Endorse AIPAC’s Iran Bill

The neoconservative Foreign Policy Initiative (FPI), the successor organization of the Project for the New American Century (PNAC), has just published another open letter (reproduced below) to Congressional leaders that implicitly endorses what I have called the “Kirk-Menendez Wag the Dog Act of 2013,” known officially as the Nuclear Weapon Free Iran Act of 2013 (S. 1881). I say implicitly, because it doesn’t come right out and urge support for the specific bill, which AIPAC and the Israel lobby, for which AIPAC is the vanguard, are flogging as hard as they possibly can. But the intention is pretty clear.

This letter — like PNAC, FPI is essentially a “letterhead organization” that issues manifestos, rather than a real think tank or grassroots membership organization — was signed by 72 “former U.S. government officials and foreign policy experts,” the vast majority of whom are easily identified as neoconservatives, as opposed to “conservatives,” the highly questionable term used by the Daily Beast’s Josh Rogin, who reported on the letter even before it was published on the FPI website to describe the signatories. (One wonders whether Rogin was given the letter on the condition that the authors be described as “conservatives” rather than “neoconservatives,” which really has become something of a dirty word over the past decade due to its association with the Iraq war and their enthusiasm over other ill-advised military adventures.)
