You are herecontent / Out of Afghanistan At Last?
By davidswanson - Posted on 28 February 2012
I predicted on Newsvine, when I was confronted by NEOCONS, ZIONISTS, and LIBERAL WARHAWKS, back in 2006, that Empire building
through class deformed language, class mythologies, lies and class dogmas, that we would loose in Iraq, in Afghanistan, AND NOW
LOST IN LIBYA, Syria any serious consideration for our concern about democracy when we embrace regime change, Fascism, and
Fascist Zionism. Next stop is Iran, and the STUPID, FASCIST MERCENARY MILITARY of the West/U.S. AND NATO will end up like the
German officers, in the Fascist State. We have become the NEW AXIS OF WESTERN FASCISM, and will be tried as WAR CRIMINALS
for our criminal invasions, regime change and Fascism:
"In other words, behind all of the hyped warnings about Iran’s imminent acquiring of nuclear weapons, the reality is that US imperialism and its allies are engaged in a campaign of economic, political and military aggression against Iran, whose aim is to prevent the country from emerging as a regional power capable of challenging Washington’s hegemony over the energy-rich regions of the Persian Gulf and Central Asia.
The nuclear issue has been used as the pretext for preparing a new war in the region, just as the claims about “weapons of mass destruction” were employed in the run-up to the US invasion of Iraq in 2003.
Just as in Iraq a decade ago, the International Atomic Energy Agency’s nuclear inspection regime serves as a cat’s paw in preparing imperialist aggression. As in Iraq, the IAEA, manipulated by US, Israeli and Western European intelligence agencies, is demanding that Iran do the impossible: prove a negative, that it is not engaged in the development of nuclear weapons. And, similar to its operations against Baghdad, the IAEA is provoking Tehran by demanding that it submit to diktats that are in no way required of signatories to the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty..."
"With the publication of his courageous new book, Why America Failed (John Wiley, 2012), Morris Berman has become one of the very first well-known, left-wing writers to acknowledge that not only is the American Empire in decline, but that it is completely unfixable. In Berman’s view there will be no rabbit pulled out of the hat at the eleventh hour to save the nation, because “the hat is coming apart at the seams.”
Unlike most of the liberal pundits such as Noam Chomsky, Michael Moore, Michael Parenti, Rachel Maddow, Katrina vanden Heuvel, Chris Matthews, Chris Hayes, Amy Goodman, Bernie Sanders, Bill Clinton, and Paul Krugman, to mention only a few, Berman has given up on America.
According to Berman the seeds of the Empire’s destruction were sewn in the sixteenth century by the early European settlers who were, above all, into “hustling” – looking out for number one. Ever since then, “hustling, materialism, and the pursuit of personal gain without regard for its effects on others” have provided the dominant theme of the American culture. He or she who dies with the most toys wins the game. Enough never seems to be quite enough..."
Actually the seeds of class Empires go beyond the 300 plus years of emerging Class tyranny and Capitalism, i.e. Fascism, it extends
to at least 3 milleniums, 3000 years of class history from the rise of the Patriarchal class-historical mechanism with its deforming
class hierarchies producing the crippled class city states of Greece into class Empires and class tyrants, followed by the 300 years
of the extension of the deforming class hierarchies, deforming the Enlightenment and social principles intended to do away with
not only Feudal class history but all of class history. Instead, 300 more years of class history were added to 3000 years of
Patriarchal class despotism, which includes religious class myths, class hierarchies, into Late Capitalism and Fascism, with its
class myths and dogmas of non existing free markets, social wealth markets, that became class deformed, monopoly markets
and totalitarian class states, where all class ideologies degenerated into Fascism, including liberalism:
