Washington's war on Syria is lawless. So are other US wars. Trillions go for mass killing, destruction, conquest, colonization, and plunder. Homeland needs go begging. 

Imagine what's coming post-election. Expect greater wealth extraction, escalated repression, and new war theaters without end.

America's worst of all possible worlds sinks lower. Depravity defines it. Obama's a stealth neocon faking people-friendly credentials. Paul Craig Roberts calls hypocrisy Washington's hallmark. Global war crimes are committed in pursuit of peace.

Humanitarian intervention is sham cover for imperial ravaging. The late Gore Vidal addressed this and more long ago. He warned how it harms humanity. He called America decadent. It's not worth preserving, he said. 

He called Cuba a place of hope. He said Americans haven't a clue about what they lost. He called US-style democracy fraudulent by design. It's illegitimate without choice on the ballot. 

He said America is "rotting away at a funereal pace." He expected eventual military dictatorship. The late Chalmers Johnson predicted the same thing. He quoted Pogo saying, "We have met the enemy and he is us."

He expected eventual worst of times. He and Vidal agreed. America is plagued by the same dynamic that doomed past empires. Unwillingness to change assures demise. 

It's not a matter of if, but when. At issue is will humanity perish with it? The possibility is terrifyingly real. Money power runs America. Policies it wants, it gets.
