In the US, of course, there is no such attempt to hold to account Bush, Cheney, Condi Rice, Rumsfeld, Wolfowitz, and the large number of war criminals that comprised the Bush Regime, notes Paul Craig Roberts….>>>>>
When the Noughties began, it seemed like the West had won.
On that magical night when December 31, 1999 became January 1, 2000, the fireworks exploded above the brand new Millennium Dome and it felt like far more than the start of a new decade, and the start of anew century.
This was surely the start of a new age, where the entire world would believe in capitalism and democracy and march together towards a golden age of peace and prosperity.
Communism was washed up. Religion was largely marginalized.Ideology was old hat. To get rich is glorious, Deng Xiaoping told 1.3billion Chinese at the end of the 20th Century, and the world would never be the same again.
This was, we were told, nothing less than the end of history. Everyone wanted to be like us. Or so it seemed.
But as the Noughties began, it turned out modern history was just getting started.
And it was the first time that the West realized just how deeply it was hated….>>>>>
And we went on to create even more Hatreds while waging our own Extreme and long lasting Terror in answer to that waged on us.
“Somebody in our government said to me in Sana’a, the capital of Yemen, Iraq was yesterday’s war. Afghanistan is today’s war. If we don’t act preemptively, Yemen will be tomorrow’s war” Joe Lieberman 12.27.09
And the ‘chickenhawk’ has spoken while the ‘kombat keyboarders’ rise as well!!
Seems he needs to rework that timeline of spin of his ‘rambo’ needs. Afghanistan was walked away from and the dye was cast to raise more hatreds of us with Iraq, and joe you forgot all the innocents in Pakistan who’s survivors are now fighting our soldiers in Afghanistan, guess what all you brother and sisters serving there now, Iraq is sooooo yesterday! He also needs to check what has been happening in Yemen, i.e. raising the funding in helping that Government fight the radical fringe, we should do that here, from Zero into the Millions along with Intelligence and U.S. military support, i.e. Drones!
Pick a small country, anywhere, Yemen, Iraq,Afghanistan,Sudan, Pakistan, if Israel or the US hit Iran add them to the fold………………………..and the list just keeps growing as the West wages it’s terror but actually believes it won’t cause any Blowback and Retaliation ‘cuss we’re good they bad!!
Thank God the Christmas Day fool only blew his balls off!!
