The Americans literally have hundreds of military bases and CIA operations worldwide, not the Russians or Chinese. And the American military and clandestine yearly spending far exceeds that of the rest of the world all combined!

So much for the statistics.   When it comes to politics, a new national survey of active and retired military personnel finds that only 15% have a Favorable opinion of Hillary Clinton, with just 3% viewing the former secretary of State Very Favorably.  Clinton is seen unfavorably by 81%, including 69% who share a Very Unfavorable impression of her.   And Hillary is from the hawkish side of the Dem Party!  (This was before the recent ISIS attacks)

The MILITARY-INDUSTRIAL complex President Eisenhower warned about is far more potent and dangerous today.  It is firmly aligned with the Neocon Zionists and the Evangelical Christians, in addition to the super corporate war profiteers who along major war-supporting media companies dominate American society, media, and politics.


Top General: US/Saudis/Israel Created ISIS

[The Islamic State] was “funded by our friends and allies in order to fight Hezbollah…  ISIS got started through funding from our friends and allies.”
                                              Former U.S. Supreme NATO Commander
                                             Wesley Clark in a CNN interview earlier this year
Remember now Israel helped create Hamas in the 1970s to fight the PLO and Israeli and American policies lead to the creation of Hezbollah after the invasion and occupation of Lebanon in the 1980s.

France, Syria, ISIS, and History

It’s a war that really started a hundred years with the secret French/British Sykes-Picot agreement to divide and colonize the Middle East after the defeat of the Ottoman Empire.  Then  at Versaille Castle in 1919 — the same locale in fact where President Mitterand address a joint session of Parliament declaring “War” a few days ago — the so-called Paris Peace Conference actually became “The Peace to End all Peace”  (Read historian David Fromkin’s spellbinding book).  Then the French invaded Syria in 1920 to overthrow the new Arab government seeking self-determination in a single Arab State.   And a few years later more French troops brutally put down the Great Syrian Revolt against their rule joined in by all factions — Sunnis, Shia, Alawite, Druze and Christian.  Much more of course…but skip ahead to recent years and some 2 to 4 million Muslims have been killed by the US and Western partners, many more millions injured and lives destroyed, many more millions of destitute refugees.
