New Cold War?

It is by now obvious that the US establishment created Ukrainian crisis is not headed towards a happy ending and the Obama regime is going to engage in the act of war of slapping even more onerous economic sanctions on Russia. When historians look back on all of this it may well be documented as the true beginning of the end of the haughty, hubris crazed American Empire - that is if it is not the end of human life itself. History will show that the incredibly irresponsible three headed monster of Obama-Biden-Kerry and their legions of neoconservative and liberal interventionist winged monkeys are to blame for it all. They are just going to continue to push and every day of bullying brings an increased possibility that someone goes off the reservation and unleashes the nukes in a fit of pique - given what we have seen from these run amok clowns does it really stretch the realm of possibility? These are very perilous times and despite being given ample opportunity to back it down Obama and his team of rivals are prepared to take it to the palace, or in this case the Kremlin in what obviously is a personal vendetta against their very own personification of the devil himself that is Russian leader Vladimir Putin. Pity that our elitist rulers are unable to set aside their petty little egos in the interest of greater things - such as not instigating a global thermonuclear war. At least Putin - according to some accounts - has the good sense to have stopped taking their phone calls. 

In many ways it is an existential crisis, that is for the criminal class that has been enriched by western finance capitalism that long ago destroyed free enterprise and turned into a global syndicate of gangsters who would never, ever be satisfied in their relentless quest to own it all. With the entire civilized world nearly completely colonized by the machine, even while the crooked and rigged financial system is itself rapidly disintegrating all that it takes is a guy like Putin to take a stand and tell the globalists to go and f*ck themselves. The ultimate nightmare for the high finance mafia and the rapacious corporate owned elite of the US and EU as well the bloated military parasite NATO would be for Putin to be allowed to get off the hook and set an example for other countries that are not exactly enamored with the American Imperial way of doing business. Say China, India, Brazil and Iran similarly decide to tell Uncle Sam to cram the thievery, repression and austerity up his star spangled a**hole it could trigger the big flush of the toilet that while bringing a wave of economic misery could finally reset the system although it would have have ugly and grave consequences. The cleansing may well do the unthinkable and actually trigger a revolt here in The Homeland when it takes the proverbial wheelbarrow full of Reichmarks to buy a bag of f*cking Doritos and the Redbox is out of order. 

While an event that finally delivers the crooked banksters their long past due accountability moment and comeuppance - despite the chaos that it would unleash be a good thing. There is however, despite the short-term downside of angry and starving, short-sighted mobs rioting in the streets once the ATM's stop functioning and the local grocery store shelves run bare along with the accompanying violence and declaration of martial law a longer term upside to society. Such a flushing of the Wall Street centered global finance toilet would certainly not be very good for the high-rolling one percent, their whores in Washington and the media and many could find themselves either swinging from the end of a rope or marched up the steps to the guillotine by the rabble. As far as I am concerned Mr. John Forbes Kerry can go to the front of the line.

While Joe Biden may be the dumbest son of a b*tch to serve as VP since Dan Quayle and a man who in the immortal words of LBJ "couldn't fart and chew gum at the same time" he pales in comparison to Kerry. The latest Kerry threat being that of an "expensive mistake"  or actually a  "grave and expensive mistake" - just like the engineers of US foreign policy and their ongoing series of unnecessary (unless you are politically connected and profit from the death and destruction) goddamned wars that are a pox upon us all. John Forbes Kerry is increasingly unhinged as of late and has been reduced to a cartoon figure, who were it not for the largest military and surveillance machine in the history of the universe would be both shunned and mocked for he has zero credibility that isn't backed by armed predator drones, bombers, missiles and assassination squads from both JSOC and hired mercenaries. The man is a joke and brings to mind the late, great H.L. Mencken's scathing portrayal of the late stage William Jennings Bryan:  "...at his best, was simply a magnificent job-seeker. The issues that he bawled about usually meant nothing to him. He was ready to abandon them whenever he could make votes by doing so, and to take up new ones at a moment's notice". The very idea that Kerry was so close to becoming the President of the United States in 2004 makes one's opinion of the moronic George W. Bush that much higher.

Once again Robert Parry nails the woeful flip-flopper from Massachusetts in his latest piece entitled "John Kerry's Sad Circle to Deceit" from which I excerpt the following:

As a young man, John Kerry was thrust into the Vietnam War by old men who lied to the nation out of ideological delusions, political expediency or personal pride. Now, John Kerry has become that old man, either detached from reality or believing he has a right to mislead the American people just like those old men who sent him and so many other young Americans into the bloody jungles of Vietnam nearly a half century ago.

If you remember, Mr. Kerry allowed his record, especially his service in Vietnam to be impugned during the 2004 elections by the odious Republican front group "Swift Boat Veterans for Truth" that dishonestly exploited statements made by Kerry about American war crimes to paint him as some sort of traitor along the lines of Hanoi Jane. The Kerry team's lollygagging around over a response to the slime cost his campaign dearly despite the truth that American soldiers were committing such atrocities in the Nam, see Nick Turse's outstanding book  "Kill Anything that Moves"  as well as such historically documented accounts of the Mai Lai massacre and Kerry narrowly lost the election. Kerry's failure to aggressively attack the ads was a glimpse at the emptiness of his moral character, we are seeing that now in the ongoing national travesty of his tenure as Secretary of State, especially in Ukraine. It was kind of like his buddy John McCain who  allowed Rove to chop his balls off in South Carolina in 2000 yet these two a**holes are at the forefront in leading the charge for war  on Putin and Russia - Jesus Christ.

Then there is President Barack Obama, who is nothing more than a foot stool for corporations and Wall Street and who is doing likewise in pushing the EU t o support upping the financial punishment against Russia. At some point, if not already as I have noted, this is an act of war and Putin is to be commended for his restraint. These blindly rich pig f*cking bastards just don't get it. They like the rest of the American looter capitalist class think that everything can be reduced to money and that in declaring economic warfare against a nuclear power, especially Russia with it's nationalist history, resentment over being screwed over the terms of the breakup of the USSR after the Cold War by double dealing American political swine who then expanded NATO and began surrounding Russia with missiles and the fact that the US establishment started this mess in the first place. The hysterics over the 40,000 Russian troops on the border of Ukraine is nonsense because the forces are IN RUSSIA although thanks to the Obama administration and the imminent coming rampage of US backed extremist death squads Russia has ordered the commencement of military exercises. With Obama's dispatching of hundreds of special forces troops to Poland this thing just continues to verge on spinning completely out of control.

Just another day of American dumb-assery stay tuned for the next episode entitled "as the sh*t flies - wrapped in a flag edition".
