    He's got the truth about the politicians' part in it. Now he needs to realize that he was also a part of that government, and responsible for carrying out their wishes. He needs to point those fingers back at himself.

    I wish Anon was was actually able to hijack the airwaves like in the movies and play this with a cool looking glitch layer and static special effects added in.

    Then I could watch the world get pissed they interrupted the Kardashians and not give a shit.

    The real question at this point is what can you do?

    hell yeah!!!

    i bet he knows who highly decorated major general smedley butler was and how he felt about being used by the scum who rule the world.

    ''-- Excerpt from a speech delivered in 1933, by Major General Smedley Butler, USMC.

    War is just a racket. A racket is best described, I believe, as something that is not what it seems to the majority of people. Only a small inside group knows what it is about. It is conducted for the benefit of the very few at the expense of the masses.

    I believe in adequate defense at the coastline and nothing else. If a nation comes over here to fight, then we'll fight. The trouble with America is that when the dollar only earns 6 percent over here, then it gets restless and goes overseas to get 100 percent. Then the flag follows the dollar and the soldiers follow the flag.

    I wouldn't go to war again as I have done to protect some lousy investment of the bankers. There are only two things we should fight for. One is the defense of our homes and the other is the Bill of Rights. War for any other reason is simply a racket. There isn't a trick in the racketeering bag that the military gang is blind to. It has its "finger men" to point out enemies, its "muscle men" to destroy enemies, its "brain men" to plan war preparations, and a "Big Boss" Super-Nationalistic-Capitalism.

    It may seem odd for me, a military man to adopt such a comparison. Truthfulness compels me to. I spent thirty- three years and four months in active military service as a member of this country's most agile military force, the Marine Corps. I served in all commissioned ranks from Second Lieutenant to Major-General. And during that period, I spent most of my time being a high class muscle- man for Big Business, for Wall Street and for the Bankers. In short, I was a racketeer, a gangster for capitalism. I suspected I was just part of a racket at the time. Now I am sure of it.

    Like all the members of the military profession, I never had a thought of my own until I left the service. My mental faculties remained in suspended animation while I obeyed the orders of higher-ups. This is typical with everyone in the military service. I helped make Mexico, especially Tampico, safe for American oil interests in 1914. I helped make Haiti and Cuba a decent place for the National City Bank boys to collect revenues in. I helped in the raping of half a dozen Central American republics for the benefits of Wall Street. The record of racketeering is long. I helped purify Nicaragua for the international banking house of Brown Brothers in 1909-1912 (where have I heard that name before?). I brought light to the Dominican Republic for American sugar interests in 1916. In China I helped to see to it that Standard Oil went its way unmolested. During those years, I had, as the boys in the back room would say, a swell racket. Looking back on it, I feel that I could have given Al Capone a few hints. The best he could do was to operate his racket in three districts. I operated on three continents.''

    I'm more interested listening to the people on the frontlines, rather than the puppets in suits. I give this man lot of respect.

    Famine and drought have nothing to do with the instability and refugee problem ??

    I think the bankers and investors want the land so they can magically turn all that sand into water.

    I heard him mention that Assad isn't dumb, like he is portrayed, but what I didn't get is whether he thinks Assad is killing his opposition. I suspect he is skeptical about reports that Assad is killing the opposition, but I could not make this out.
