U.S. Foreign Policy: 100 Years of Failure

TAMPA, November 19, 2012 — An Iraqi diplomat has called upon other Arab oil producers to “use oil as a weapon” against the United States. Fox News reports this as if it should come as a surprise.

“The shocking statement from a democratic government in power only after the U.S. and allies ousted murderous dictator Saddam Hussein in a costly and bloody war laid bare the Middle Eastern nation’s true allegiance,” reports Fox.

The detachment from reality exhibited by news organizations like Fox and Americans in general is stunning. Americans actually believe that Iraqis should be grateful that the United States invaded their country, destroyed their infrastructure, killed hundreds of thousands of innocent civilians and made homeless refugees of millions more.

They also believe that after deposing a relatively westernized dictator and putting the Shia majority in power, the resulting government would not seek to retaliate against U.S. support for Israel.

This is by no means an isolated incident. It is a recurring theme. Contrary to official myth, U.S. foreign policy has been a failure for the past 100 years, virtually without exception.

We’re constantly told that the United States has a “special role” in the world, due to its status as sole superpower and the role it has played over the past century “defending freedom.” This is pure delusion.

A small percentage of Americans are vaguely aware that Osama bin Laden did not create Al Qaeda (Arabic for “the base”). It was started in Pakistan by Sheik Abdullah Azzam with CIA support. According to veteran reporter Eric Margolis,

“I know this because I interviewed Azzam numerous times at al-Qaida HQ in Peshawar while covering the anti-Soviet jihad in Afghanistan. Azzam set up al-Qaida, which means “the base” in Arabic, to help CIA and Saudi-financed Arab volunteers going to fight in Soviet-occupied Afghanistan. In those days, the west hailed them as “freedom fighters,” writes Margolis.

    Corporate is different than the peoples republic and the corporation is only devoted to the corporation and has no allegiance to the countries that allow them. They are ruthless aliens because they are outside the rule of Law, they have no acts of supporting life and many acts of war, manipulations, theft and more.

    In fact they are our example of America because we decided law makers to rule our lives and limit us while they terrorize the world for petroleum control and world domination.

    For over a 100 years they have been their own corporation of manipulations.

    The answer is stop Law Makers, stop allowing them to limit us for they were to be the limited in a Republic. Only the deciding will ever fix this and first you have to figure out that is you or the other choice is to allow the poor example to keep expanding itself until hate is the only thing left on earth.

    Its not our foreign Policy, it is the aliens we allow to run our country which means they have no support for life, that is the real bad policy. Our global effects are only what we are deciding right here at home.
