War in Somalia

It now appears that a large US military force will need to be deployed to northern Africa in the near future. Of course the requisite media inculcation will proceed and create the sufficient fervor and righteous confidence of the citizenry in the mission ahead, despite the casualties or true losses of our imperial aims there. The US military and CIA have been operating in and around Somalia for over two decades now and the growing instability of that region, culminated by a collapse of the most recent CIA backed government there in 2007, has prompted decisions in the beltway that more than subversive forces are needed to maintain control. The latest “pirate” story, including the kidnapping of a US ship captain, is being promoted on the media grid with the usual meter and appearance of thoughtful restraint. Instead of just saying that we are sending troops to northern Africa as part of the control of the resources in the middle east and central Asia, the TAPI pipeline, etc., a decision for a military excursion that has already been made, the appearance of moderation must be established. This notion that we are waiting for further developments is utter nonsense. “Further developments” will of course be either directly fabricated or portrayed in a manner which justifies the subsequent military action.

  1. I like the post,One minor correction. Somalia is middle east Africa. Troops in north Africa would have no bearing on somalia.

    What gets me is they are terrorists in the pure form. Terrorizing shipping off their coast. Just call a spade a spade and kill em all I say.

    But really, how did we ever get the job as the worlds police? Can't we just protect our own and live at let live. our nation will spend itself out of existance.

    maybe we should be happy because that is a good thing.

The modern Left is woefully ignorant of real economics and its history. A true understanding of economic history would instantly reveal Keynesians like Paul Krugman for the hocus-pocus frauds they are. A true understanding of economic history would also instantly dispel the myth of “Systematic Racism”. It’s capitalism stupid, the real free market capitalism that the US has only known for brief periods in its history in the mid to late 19th century, not the crony-capitalist/socialist hybrid creature that we have today thanks to the unholy alliance of the modern Republican Party (Neocons) and the Progressive Left.  A desire for profits is not intrinsically morally bad, it never has been, and in fact is the only reason the world has what little wealth and technological advancement that it has.

The desire for profit and to exchange favorably as a market actor is absolutely color blind and for reasons of practicality alone. Would even the most proven racist deny himself bigger profits beca…

Change We Can Believe In?

President Obama is heralded by the press as some great messiah of change while, as usual, the real domestic and foreign policies of the corporate/bank cartel government of the United States stay the same and continue without interruption in operational terms. The US "Embassy" in Baghdad is the size of 110 football fields and has cost close to 80 billion dollars to build. The truth is the masters of the world never intend to leave Iraq, so far as their control of the flow and price of energy in the country is concerned and whatever it requires, by force, to maintain it. The only argument the so-called "left" has had during the entire Iraq war has been its execution or timing, or "the way it was managed", hauntingly familiar to the arguments made by the Camelot knights of the Kennedy Democrat era regarding the Vietnam War. Now we have Kerry, Clinton, or some other "dove" assuming disconsolate looks on their faces as they pontificate about maintain…
