Washington played us like Swizzle Sticks!
Everything being waged against the Middle East has been thrown back with a vengeance against the West!
Traditional strategy in the American art of war is the ability to deceive one's opponent in the evidence of cleverness.
One-Fourth of the budget spent on the Iraq War would fund Social Security for 75 years.
Total GDP $13.3 trillion annually
Spent on Iraq War - $1 trillion annually
The awesome power of US Armed Forces and its strategic play of war games would make any reader cringe. More than 40 satellite-guided Tomahawk cruise missiles were fired from US warships in the Red Sea and Persian Gulf at the start of the Iraq Invasion. F117 stealth fighters carrying two 2,000-pound bombs apiece were involved in the strikes. The F117 stealth fighters have a speed of 1,300 mph, and an internal Vulcan 20mm cannon is mounted in the nose. The Super Hornet can carry 17,750 pounds of conventional and precision bombs and missiles. The US and coalition forces launched missiles and bombs at targets in Iraq as morning dawned in Baghdad, including a "decapitation attack" aimed at Iraqi President Saddam Hussein and other top members of the country's leadership.
Many articles have been written by the US and Israel about the giant threat of "suicide bombers," but we know only desperate people go to those proportions. The Palestinians don't have the stealth fighters and cruise missiles. The only ammunition they have are themselves. You use what you have, and the reward is to become a martyr.
President George W. Bush announced in 2003 that America was on a mission to remove a grave threat and to liberate an oppressed people, but who won? It seems that anything being waged against the Middle East has been thrown back with a vengeance against the West. The Middle East doesn't need the Tomahawk Cruise Missiles or the F117 Stealth Fighters. It has waged its own war and has won. When Bush took office, oil was $23 a barrel, and gas was $0.93 a gallon. Think of that each time you fill up your gas tank.
Many investors buy commodities such as oil as a hedge against inflation when the dollar falls. Also, a weaker dollar makes oil less expensive to investors dealing in other currencies. Many analysts believe the dollar's protracted decline is a major factor behind oil's doubling in price over the past year.
Read the Biblical story again about David and Goliath. Goliath has amour and a shield-bearer. David has a staff and sling. David says, "This day the LORD will deliver you into my hand, and I will strike you down, and cut off your head; and I will give the dead bodies of the host of the Philistines." "Yahweh saves not with sword and spear; for the battle is Yahweh's, and he will give you into our hand."
The west continues to brag about its global military lined around the world in strategic spots. "We must keep America safe," they tout. Every time this phrase is repeated thousands have just walked across the Mexican border, and now we have had 2 known and documented electrical grid attacks from computer hackers in China, including those working on behalf of the Chinese government and military, have penetrated deeply into the information systems of U.S. companies and government agencies, stolen proprietary information from American executives in advance of their business meetings in China, and, in a few cases, gained access to electric power plants in the United States, possibly triggering two recent and widespread blackouts in Florida and the Northeast, according to U.S. government officials and computer-security experts. The Cyber Militia is thought to be responsible for 2 of those power failures.
A 9,300-square-mile area, touching Michigan, Ohio, New York, and parts of Canada, lost power; an estimated 50 million people were affected in August 2003. A second information-security expert independently corroborated Bennett’s account of the Florida blackout in February 2008. In 2007, an unidentified hacker broke into the e-mail system for Defense Secretary Robert Gates’ office, and the Pentagon shut down about 1,500 computers in response. (Source: National Journal, 2008)
