Joe Giambrone

While some wax nostalgic about the Obama regime, what I remember most about the year 2016 was how close the world came to Armageddon. Americans will be lost in irrelevant noise and recall nothing about it, but an incident in Syria brought the world’s two top nuclear powers into direct conflict with a direct risk of escalation. This was the Cuban Missile Crisis they didn’t want to tell you about on corporate TV.

Barack Obama’s Air Force bombed and killed Syrian government forces inside Syria. That itself was a war crime, an act of aggression forbidden in the UN Charter. The Russian allies of Syria responded as follows (Oct. 6).

This was escalated again by Britain—which for some reason was also illegally flying over Syrian airspace: RAF given green light to shoot down hostile Russian jets in Syria (Oct. 12).

The Russians were the ones invited in by the legitimate government of that country, while the US and UK were illegal invaders.

The world used to understand Mutually Assured Destruction (MAD) and why attacking nuclear-armed powers was a no-no. Has that fear of the Apocalypse diminished over time? Was the Obama Administration completely psychotic?

They seemed to have no problem treating Al Qaeda in Libya and in Syria as valuable allies, rather than sworn enemies. The accommodation of Al Qaeda went straight to the top and to Barack Obama himself, as revealed in a 2013 phone call to Turkey’s Erdogan.

By February of 2012, Hillary Clinton and her State Department had been informed, “AQ is on our side in Syria.” That simple sentence packed so much into an email subject line. The United States had declared war against Al Qaeda on September 14th of 2001, blaming them solely for the 9/11 attacks. Any “aid and comfort” to that group would then be considered Treason.

Secondly, there was an “our side” in Syria in February of 2012? Where exactly was that Congressional authorization? By what right did Barack Obama covertly attack UN member state Syria?

The pattern of attacking Russia’s allies one by one continued into Ukraine. That country, and its Russia-friendly elected President were destabilized completely. A civil war erupted, and the country split into three sections.

This is the “normalcy” that is encoded in Joe Biden’s pronouncements. This is the “global leadership” his new team of war promoters envisions. It is likely to be a rough ride… not that Americans will notice at all unless missiles begin dropping on their hometowns.

Conspiracy Theory and the Failure of Certainty

Still stuck in the 20th century imperial ridiculousness, Barack Obama continues to harass elected governments, such as in Venezuela:

Obama Channels His Inner Reagan on Venezuela

White House took a new step toward the theater of the absurd by “declaring a national emergency with respect to the unusual and extraordinary threat to the national security and foreign policy of the United States posed by the situation in Venezuela,”

CIA Director Held ‘Secret Consultations’ in Kiev

CIA Role Behind the Anti-Government Protests in Venezuela

She has toured a series of countries in the world where very similar situations have occurred, like what she tried to do in Venezuela. And when you analyze Venezuela, and what has happened nowadays and the way in which she has acted, I think that in Venezuela, the characteristic that has been that they are tremendously aggressive in the manipulation of the information. Tremendously aggressive. To the point where you say it’s a blunder, because there are images which are so obviously not from Venezuela. I saw a very famous one, in which a soldier appears with a journalist, with a camera.They are Koreans. It’s an image from Korea. They’re Asian. They don’t look like Venezuelans at all. Also, the uniforms they wear. They’ve been very aggressive with that image which has projected what’s going on in Venezuela to the world. The greater part of the world’s people, this image is the one they’re seeing, of what they’re trying to say.
