The national security state s childishly dangerous taunt against China

Future of Freedom Foundation
by Jacob G. Hornberger

11/27/13

It didn t take long for the U.S. national-security state s 'pivot' toward Asia, after its disastrous 12-year foray into the Middle East, to produce a new crisis for Americans. In response to China s decision to implement a new air zone involving a long territorial dispute with Japan over a group of islands, the U.S. military sent two B-52 bombers flying over the zone to test China s resolve, proving that China is just a 'paper tiger' given that it didn t shoot the planes out of the sky. It was a childishly dangerous taunt. What would have happened if China had shot down the planes?

Make your choice: Freedom or the national security state

Future of Freedom Foundation
by Jacob G. Hornberger

12/18/13

In his July 4, 1821, address to Congress John Quincy Adams pointed out that America does not go abroad 'in search of monsters to destroy.' His use of the term 'monsters' encompassed brutal and tyrannical foreign dictators. ...Today, the world continues to be filled with brutal and tyrannical dictators. However, there is now a big difference between the U.S. government of Adams? time and the U.S. government of our time. Unlike our 19th-century American ancestors, modern-day Americans live under a national-security state apparatus, one whose mission, practically from its inception in 1947, is to serve as the world s policeman, one who goes abroad in search of monsters to destroy.

Russia in the Middle East

The Nation
by Bob Dreyfuss

11/18/13

One of the byproducts of recent events in the Middle East is the return of Russia to a prominent role across the region. Not that Russia ever left, but it has been a principal goal of successive US administrations to push first the Soviet Union and then Russia back. In the 1950s and 1960s that took the form of a series of political and military alliances, including NATO (which included Turkey) and the Baghdad Pact and CENTO (including variously Turkey, Iraq, Iran and Pakistan)...

Federal Reserve steals from the poor and gives to the rich

US Rep. Ron Paul (R-TX) Campaign For Liberty

11/18/13

As recently as five years ago, it would have been unheard of for a Wall Street insider and former Fed official to speak so bluntly about how the Fed acts as a reverse Robin Hood. But a quick glance at the latest unemployment numbers shows that QE is not benefiting the average American. It is increasingly obvious that the Fed s post-2008 policies of bailouts, money printing, and bond buying benefited the big banks and the politically-connected investment firms. QE is such a blatant example of crony capitalism that it makes Solyndra look like a shining example of a pure free market!

Spycrash: 5 CIA operations that went south, spectacularly

The Associated Press yesterday revealed that Robert Levinson, a former FBI agent, was working for the CIA when he disappeared on Iran in March 2007. But perhaps more surprising than Levinson s ties to the CIA was the reckless way in which the operation was carried out.

Man shot in the back of the head by FBI during 8-hour interrogation

He was ultimately shot 6 times in the chest and once in the back of the head, which his father describes as an *execution* performed to *silence* his son. Months later, the Feds still have not offered any cogent explanations of the the incident or why their agents altered their story multiple times.

The Bloody Disaster of Libya, Iraq and Afghanistan is Laid Bare

By Simon Jenkins

It is hard to exaggerate the misery and chaos created by so-called "liberal interventionism". It is hard to think of a more immoral foreign policy, roaming the (chiefly Muslim) world, killing people and sowing anarchy.

http://www.informationclearinghouse.info/article36893.htm



Libya makes Sharia law basis for law and state institutions: Tripoli

The Libyan National Assembly voted to make Sharia Law the basis of all legislative decisions and the legal framework of the country. The move is seen by some as an attempt to outflank more radical Islamic groups some of whom have called some members of the Assembly un-Islamic.

[W]hile the withdrawal of U.S. combat troops from [Iraq] in December 2011 marked the end of the American war there, it did not, and could not, mark the end of the influence of the war on events in Iraq. Instead, what s happening in Iraq follows the American war, not just chronologically but consequentially. It s the legacy of foreign policy interventionism in action, and a template from which the contours of the aftermath of subsequent American interventionism can be teased...

US foreign policy is a shambles

Future of Freedom Foundation

McCain and Graham, who never saw an opportunity for U.S. military intervention they didn t like, continue to operate under the absurd illusion that American politicians and bureaucrats can micromanage something as complex as a foreign society. Their hubris knows no bounds, but, then, they never pay the price for their foolishness. Who pays? The Americans they cheer off to war, but even more so, the people in foreign lands who are on the receiving end of American intervention...
