US military sliding in terms of morals, sense of duty

Friends who worked in the Bush White House, not just the National Security Council, but presidential advisors on intelligence and counter-terrorism, told of Bush’s “gay mafia,” made up of a majority of top leadership, names every American has heard on the news.”
It is summer across America. Americans visit military memorials and graves of the fallen, and attend patriotic events, but the undercurrent of disappointment and even fear pervades. Americans know their government has lost its way and look to the military to fix the problem.
It isn’t going to happen. From Vietnam onward, the military has been on a slide into mediocrity, not in weapons and firepower, but in moral courage and a sense of duty.
The “bomb” hit in 2001, when the Bush/Cheney/Rumsfeld cabal cleansed the military of all competent generals and admirals, leaving political hacks and extremists to do their bidding.
Only a military run by criminals would have played along in silence, 9/11, the falsified intelligence on Iraq, the mythical underground cities of “Al Qaeda” in Afghanistan.
None have been held to account for this, for a trillion dollars of heroin dealing (actual figure), for 100,000 rapes, for three trillion dollars stolen, for thousands of drone murders, for kidnapping and torture.
“We were only following (giving) orders.”
When the military talks of “Duty, Honor, Country” or offers to “protect and defend the Constitution of the United States,” it is obviously joking.
Vietnam was a watershed for the military. Everyone in the military knew the United States was on the wrong side, supporting an unpopular dictatorship against a people unwilling to submit to tyranny.
Does this sound like Afghanistan?
Marine recruits being trained for Vietnam were warned that, when they got to Vietnam, they would clearly recognize that the “enemy” was morally superior and far more militarily effective than our South Vietnamese allies.
American combat veterans returning from Vietnam were invariably “anti-war” though many now deny it as they live in a propagandized tyranny, a creation of their own inaction and silence.
When motorcyclists in America greet one another, the “hand signal” is two fingers extended, the “peace sign.” Everyone does, it but very few remember the significance, remember a time when opposing war, when standing against tyranny was a “badge of honor.”
Colonel David Hackworth, America’s most decorated hero, stood against the war and was “removed” from the military.
Other officers, those who failed to lie about the Phoenix Program, inflated body counts or wouldn’t remain silent about CIA drug running, were “terminated” or “depersonalized.”
Let’s use the real term. They were murdered.
After the Vietnam War, two huge scandals remained; America’s missing POWs and John McCain’s collaboration with the enemy. These scandals, the scandals and John McCain himself, haunt us to this day.
The phony war on terror
Americans who went into Afghanistan and Iraq, however, were lied to. It would be years before any significant opposition to the war would emerge. Without backing from the public, any member of the military that stood for honor would be persecuted or worse.
Ask Pat Tillman.
Ask Bradley Manning.
Ask the Navy SEALS who have become “mysteriously accident prone” after the “re-death” of Osama bin Laden.
I wonder how the military explains the heroin trafficking. Afghanistan had wiped out opium production under the Taliban.
Today it exports well over 90% of the world’s fully processed heroin, narcotics flown to every corner of the world on planes contracted to the Department of Defense and CIA.
You think the Taliban has an air force? All air traffic controllers in Afghanistan are employees of
US government. Imagine a Taliban 747 landing at Chievres Air Force Base in Belgium or at Camp Bondsteel in Kosovo, a plane loaded with heroin, claiming to be “lost.”
You might think the US military might stop falling for the same “gag” after a dozen years. And some people wonder why there is a “9/11 Truth” movement.
Not all military are “chumps”
If the Iraqi Army had been allowed to survive, the master-bungler Bush (43 or 41, they are interchangeable) may not have stumbled into a civil war that killed 5000 American soldiers.
Today, the Syrian Army is proving a force for stability in what was once seen as a civil war and is now increasingly appearing to be an armed aggression by terrorist groups in service of the world banking cartel.
John McCain’s visit to Syria to meet with “rebel leaders” puts any doubts as to the veracity of the above hypothesis to rest.
Pakistan is an interesting example. Veterans Today editor, Lt. General Hamid Gul, was the first prominent military and intelligence figure to cite 9/11 as an “inside job.” Today, every rational military leader looks back on his analysis as “spot-on.”
Similarly, Pakistani military leaders, such as my good friend and mentor, former Chairman of the JCOS, Admiral Iftikhar Sirohey, a leader in the effort to free Dr. Aafia Siddiqui, have proven to be men of honor.
Former Army Chief of Staff, General Aslam Beg, Brigadier Asif Haroon Raja and dozens of others affiliated with Veterans Today and Opinion Maker (Major Raja Mujtaba editor), have taken strong positions against drone attacks and America’s corrupt policies in Afghanistan.
Pro-democracy demonstrators in Turkey hope the military can rein in the abuses of the Erdogan government. However, many question the continued independence of the Turkish army, who, like Egypt’s military, have, over the years, gotten too close to Israel.
Few who haven’t worked around Washington DC understand to what degree America’s Capitol is a sewer of perversion.
More than rumors, the Franklin Scandal documented pedophile rings that serviced, not just Congress, but every branch of government and the military up to the oval office itself.
Friends who worked in the Bush White House, not just the National Security Council, but presidential advisors on intelligence and counter-terrorism, told of Bush’s “gay mafia,” made up of a majority of top leadership, names every American has heard on the news.
For the military, it is hard to explain where to begin. The service academies are built on enforced mediocrity, hazing, bullying and sexual exploitation of every imaginable kind and some few could ever imagine.
Since the late 1980s, religious extremism, fanatic pro-Zionism mixed with sick sexual practices and Satanic rituals, have been too much of “the norm” for the military.
The well-publicized epidemic of rape, corruption and incompetence the military is known for would not be possible without the influence of powerful Satanic groups, groups closely related to those that targeted and brought down the Roman Catholic Church, as documented by Fr. Malachi Martin.
Reform may be hopeless
With the onset of President Obama’s second term, there is a movement afoot to reform the military and push aside elements that have made the United States the real “evil empire” in the eyes of much of the world.
Heading off the reform movement is General Ray Odierno, Chief of Staff of the Army, Martin Dempsey, Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff and Chuck Hagel, Secretary of Defense.
Arrayed against them is AIPAC and the Zionist lobby in Washington, more powerful than the government itself, backed by John McCain, Joe Lieberman, the “Tea Party” and their drug dealing, whore mongering Wall Street friends.
The pervasive decay that has infected the military also carries to the FBI, Homeland Security and nearly every law enforcement agency in the US.
When an Israeli trained county sheriff tells his constituents (sheriffs are elected in the US) that he will defend their rights against the government, I laugh.
The same sheriffs run their jails as concentration camps, their police departments as private enforcers for the rich and powerful, the same sheriffs have their elections financed by organized crime and, in much of the US, are directly employed by Mexican drug cartels.
The same sheriffs lobby Washington for money for “police equipment.” The equipment they ask for is armed drones, armored personnel carriers, machine guns, bugging equipment and heavy weapons.
America’s police are schooled in “political correctness” by AIPAC and the ADL, tied to espionage organizations, taught “counter-terrorism” by groups like “The Cell,” run by organized crime figures and are taught surveillance by Mossad operatives.
In fact, in two weeks, top law enforcement leaders along with press and media elites in the US will be attending a yearly Solstice Celebration in Denver, Colorado, organized by Satanists.
This event happens every year. Local hospitals have been warned that attempts will be made to kidnap a newborn baby, intended for “use” at a ceremony to be held in an underground liquor storage facility built during prohibition.
If only these were the darkest deeds that the secret societies that President Kennedy warned us about were involved in. There are others, often blamed on “terrorists” or “lone gunmen.” The military, some of it, perhaps much of it, is clearly a part. They aren’t alone. America’s “elites” are everything but.
