Disbelief, Paranoia once again

At the height of the VietNam war, I was a young man and became incredibly sour about our government, especially after the Fulbright Hearings and the publication of the Pentagon Papers. I may have then mellowed a bit but never really bought all the US government propaganda. For example, I have always thought that the crises in the Middle East were about Israel, our surrogate there, and the cheap oil supply for our economy. After yesterday's horrible disaster in Mosul and the absolute disregard for security of either US or Iraqi people, I am all the more convinced. Bush, Cheney, Rumsfeld, Wolfowitz, Feith, et al have another agenda. Sure its incompetence and ideology but these tragedies do not even slow them down in pursuit of their objectives which are as they have been for years: the humiliation of the Arab peoples, the denial of Palestinian rights, the hegemony of Israel in the area and, above all, oil for our wealth and consumption. How much longer can it go on? The whole world, everyone beyond our increasingly isolated empire, knows and increasingly saying what they know and think. Loudly and despite US muscle.
