The new iteration of this National Security Strategy document sees it calling for the total elimination of the US Dollar from the Russian economy—sees this document stressing the legitimacy of the use of both symmetric and asymmetric means to suppress or prevent “unfriendly actions” by actors which seek to threaten Russia's sovereignty or territorial integrity—and significantly sees this document including the expansion of strategic cooperation with China and India in the list of Russian foreign policy priorities, with a view to creating mechanisms to ensuring regional security and stability on a non-aligned basis in the Asia-Pacific Region.
“This hardening of our political arteries is dangerous. It’s not just that needed legislation gets blocked; it’s that our civic culture is in crisis.
When passion can’t flow easily into policymaking, it congeals as angry protest, growing wilder and more paranoid, and as the traditional news media gives way to social media, representatives talk more but do less.
In the past, such hurdles have been overcome by wars.A painful fact about U.S. history is that it often takes a military conflict to transcend the habitual holding pattern of checks-and-balances government.”
To the grave danger posed to the American people by this unaccountable to anyone “Iron Pentagon” nexus of control, corruption and suppression, this transcript sees Security Council Members noting that its full and evil power became evident immediately following the 11 September 2001 false flag attack on the United States known as 9/11—a false flag attack that President George W. Bush quickly responded to by gleefully telling the American people: “Get down to Disney World!”—while the Americans were otherwise preoccupied saw the “Iron Pentagon” plunging the United States into 20-years of continuous warfare costing trillions of dollars and millions of lives—saw them becoming “Disney World Wars” because they were based on fantasy and make believe—most importantly to notice, were “Disney World Wars” the United States lost every one of—the last of them being in Afghanistan, where the Americans admitted total defeat yesterday—and was where the top US military commander in Afghanistan, General Austin S. Miller, met with reporters yesterday and warned with remarkable bluntness that “civil war is certainly a path that can be visualized”, adding: “That should be a concern for the world”.
“With the Taliban advancing and U.S. troops leaving, President AshrafGhani and his aides have become increasingly insular, and Kabul is slipping into shock.
The reduction of the Afghan government is to the person of Mr. Ghani himself and a handful of aides, foreign-educated, some with families safely abroad.
In the wealthier neighborhoods of Kabul, a frequent high-stakes poker game, with as much as $120,000 on the table, includes government officials, several people who have observed the game told The New York Times. At least one observer said he had seen people in positions of responsibility at the game, which he deplored as misguided at a time of national crisis.
More than a quarter of the country’s 421 districts have been seized by the insurgents since early May, in a sweeping campaign that has largely targeted Afghanistan’s north and even seen some provincial capitals besieged by Taliban fighters.
In some places, government forces are surrendering without a fight, often because they have run out of ammunition and the government doesn’t send more supplies or reinforcements.
Humvees, weapons and piles of ammunition have fallen into Taliban hands, much of it paraded triumphantly on videos released on social media by the group’s propagandists. The insurgents have even made easy inroads in northern provinces far from their homelands in southern Afghanistan, areas they struggled to capture in their mid-1990s takeover.
“You have a highly centralized military fighting a war against a highly decentralized insurgency, fighting an irregular war,” said TamimAsey, a former deputy minister of defense who now leads a think tank in Kabul. “That is a recipe for disaster.”
Security Council Members next note that this “recipe for disaster” now occurring in Afghanistan would have been entirely avoidable if not for the “Iron Pentagon” nexus of control, corruption and suppression that’s controlling America—specifically because the way it’s designed allows a single person in this evil nexus to seize control and plunge the United States into war—a fact belatedly noticed by the leftist Washington Post, who in their just published article “Rumsfeld Seized The Wheel Of Power — And Steered Us Terribly Into War” factually states:
“Rumsfeld’s cause was an idea that wars of the future should be swift, light and cheap.
He used his position to create a plan for the Iraq War that would apply precisely enough force, in rapid coordination, to topple Hussein and get the heck out.
When emissaries from Powell’s State Department tried to join the planning to discuss postwar Iraq, Rumsfeld literally barred them from the Pentagon.
Rumsfeld’s short, cheap wars have turned out to be the United States’ longest wars, very costly wars, often embarrassing wars, mostly failed wars, unworthy of the brave men and women who have waged them.
No one was better at seizing the wheel of power than Donald Rumsfeld; unfortunately, his compass was lacking, and he pointed us over a cliff.”
