Terrorists

 

My response to an article called: “STRATEGIES TO COUNTER TERRORIST NARRATIVES ARE MORE CONFUSED THAN EVER.”

That’s because Washington, London, Paris and NATO do not actually oppose terrorism, they merely claim to do so. Operation Gladio proved this beyond any reasonable doubt. Washington supported the Mujahadeen terrorists since the Carter Administration, then the Contras in Nicaragua. They have supported terrorists anywhere and everywhere they could be seen to strike at the west’s official enemies, like Qadaffi and Bashar al Assad.

Western leaders are essentially war criminals who covertly support the terrorists they claim to fight. They do this mainly through their so-called “allies” and “partners” like the thug Erdogan in Turkey, and the royals of Saudi Arabia, Qatar and the like.

People who run the empire do not think like regular people, and that is the first thing you need to understand if you actually want to fight terrorism.

Counterpunch has been a blatherpocalypse these past few months. For and against Sanders has been the hot-button topic.

This dude, Andrew Stewart, makes a great case for Sanders by making it easy to reject the hair-brained communist-manifesto rhetoric of himself, Andrew Stewart:

“I am by choice one who describes his politics as anarcho-syndicalist, which I feel has a more tenable chance of being achieved in this country than the parliamentary road.”

So a flavor of anarchist, but he then goes on to praise the Bolshevik revolution in Russia in any number of ways, like that was a noteworthy success we might emulate, only to take it much further this time…?

Stewart says:

“The nationalization of the banks and socialization of the means of production are bare essentials of any real socialist program, regardless of ideological tendency.”

This is false, as Scandinavian countries, and most of the western world for that matter, instituted countless social assistance programs without doing either. The demand to seize the “means of production” in a sweeping totalitarian maneuver is so radical on its face, and so impossible in reality–not to mention undesirable–that it would force a society that resembles North Korea or STASI Germany in order to implement it!

Verdict: Andrew Stewart’s prescription for humanity is a kind of 19th century totalitarianism. His criticism of Sanders is that Bernie is in no position to upend the entire economy of the planet, use military force and come marching in some sort of revolution to please the handful of diehard communists (or anarchists? he seems confused) who will accept nothing less.

So, perhaps Bernie is doing something right.

Is the next fraud to draw an arbitrary distinction between ISIL and ISIS? And IS?

“So with the additional steps I ordered last month we’re speeding up training of ISIL forces including volunteers of Sunni tribes in Anbar Province.”

-Barack Obama

Freudian slip? Obama vows to speed up ‘training ISIL’, WH edit adds confusion
