In the past months the Obama Administration has clearly also escalated tensions in the seas surrounding the Peoples’ Republic of China—East China Sea with Japan and South China Sea with the Philippines—tensions which potentially could provoke a catastrophe. While both provocative operations could give the Pentagon budget a boost in times of budget austerity, they could easily detonate a preemptive nuclear strike by either China or Russia or by both. In the 21st Century such primitive behavior by the Obama Pentagon is not only inexcusable. It’s mad …
If someone in Washington was trying deliberately to firm up a strategic military alliance between Beijing and Moscow to parallel their unprecedented economic alliance, then they are doing brilliantly. It is not so brilliant for mankind or the prospects for world peaceful economic development of our planet to blindly march toward mutual annihilation.
The Pentagon continues to escalate tensions in Russia and Asia. One likely reason is to ensure that its $1 trillion budget request moves through Congress without a hitch.
But increasingly, the Pentagon’s manipulative behavior is being questioned – and by the alternative media in particular. Perhaps this time the scheming of the military-industrial complex will not be so richly rewarded as usual.
Not long ago, we posted an article (here) that came to the attention of the alternative media regarding the Pentagon’s misappropriation of some $8 trillion. That doesn’t mean the money was in some way stolen, only that after years and years, the Pentagon still cannot account for its own funding in ways Congress demands.
Not being able or willing to account for $8 trillion is an almost-impossible-to-contemplate lapse. But there are other activities in which the Pentagon is involved that seem even worse.
Most obvious is the constant escalation of tensions with both Russia and China. We’ve written about this before. It’s the same tired and terrible game that has been played out over the past century. Every time the faux central banking economy reaches the limits of its cyclical monetary debasement, the other boot comes down and military tensions are escalated unto war.
The analysis excerpted above is by F. William Engdahl, best-selling author on oil and geopolitics, exclusively for the online magazine “New Eastern Outlook.” He sees what we do in terms of the Pentagon’s operation (and presumably that includes NATO).
Take a look at key phrases from his article, entitled, “Washington Plays Nuclear Chicken Now With China As Well As Russia.” He explains, for instance, that provocative operations by the US military in Russia and Asia “could give the Pentagon budget a boost in times of budget austerity.”
This only confirms our own recent article (here) entitled “Nuke Miniaturization Threat Emerges Conveniently as Pentagon Seeks $1 Trillion.”
Another key quote: “If someone in Washington was trying deliberately to firm up a strategic military alliance between Beijing and Moscow to parallel their unprecedented economic alliance, then they are doing brilliantly.”
The bottom line here is that the Pentagon wants a cool $1 trillion for a mythical nuclear “upgrade.” Meanwhile, central banks can no longer pretend that their ruination of the world’s economy is somehow competent and necessary.
We are in the midst of a huge propaganda blitz by the Pentagon and its affiliated military-industrial complex. We’ve seen the results before and hopefully they will not reoccur with such worldwide viciousness again. Is it possible that this time the Pentagon’s lurid lies will fail to awake public terror and instead incite indignation at military-industrial manipulations. That would be an outcome dearly to be desired in this awakening Internet era.
