Try to imagine more deluded reporting than this by America’s Presstitute "free press."
Washington’s assaults on seven countries have blown up weddings, funerals, kids’ soccer games, farm houses, hospitals, aid workers, schools, people walking along the streets, village elders, but the Muslims don’t mind! They understand that the well-meaning Americans who love them and are committed to their human rights, are bringing them democracy and women’s rights. The million or more dead, maimed, and displaced Muslims are a low price to be paid for liberation by Washington.
The Muslims understand that liberation has costs and were content with Washington’s liberating violence until some idiot in California produced an anti-Islamic film. This film, and not Washington’s predations, set the Muslim world alive with "hate America."
On the symbolic date of September 11, the US ambassador to Libya and some other Washington representatives were assassinated in Libya.
This is the way Washington works and thinks. It is not Washington’s slaughter of Muslims and control over their societies and political life that produces blowback. It is independent film-makers in California!
Deluded politicians in Washington, both Republicans and Democrats and, of course, the bought-and-paid-for "experts," brought these forceful rejections of America upon us all.
In Egypt, long an American puppet states, the US Embassy was stormed and the US flag was torn apart. If only this was all. Washington could again purchase the Egyptian government, as it has since Anwar Sadat’s assassination. But the ongoing news is that Anti-American protests are not only spreading across the Middle East but erupting throughout the world: Morocco, Sudan, Tunisia, Iraq, Yemen, Iran, Gaza, Bangladesh, Lebanon, London, and even into Israel.
The Obama administration is blaming al Qaeda, an Islamist group that the administration is currently supporting in its efforts to overthrow the secular Assad government in Syria and the group that the Obama administration used to overthrow the Libyan government, thus leaving a power vacuum in its place.
Attempting to politicize the turmoil, Presidential candidate Mitt Romney declared that the US needed him in the White House and as president he would provide "…the leadership that America respects and will keep us admired throughout the world."
What admiration is Romney talking about? Who are the admirers? In Egypt Muslims marching to the beat of "death to America," have not been deterred by police after three days of protests. CBS reports that "Police continue to fire tear gas in hopes it will deplete the strength of the demonstrators but they [the demonstrators] are proving relentless."
Kings Good, Dictators Bad! Unlike the Washington-supported Saudi royal family that absorbs most of their nation’s oil income, Qaddafi allocated the oil money to Libyans.
Why did such a relatively wealthy and egalitarian country need to be "liberated" by Washington and its NATO war criminal puppet state?
What was achieved by overthrowing a government that provided for its people in better ways than do Western governments for the people they govern?
The US is the new Rome, and Europe, the UK, Canada, Japan, and Australia are its tributary dominions along with the oil kingdoms.
In his book, Rubicon, Tom Holland describes what it is like to be a dominion of a powerful and ruthless military state:
"Prior to the cataclysms of B.C. 146, there had been some confusion as to the precise definition of ‘freedom.’ When the Romans claimed to be guaranteeing it, what did this mean? ... Roman and Greek interpretations of ‘freedom’ diverged. To the Romans … freedom meant an opportunity for the city states to follow rules laid down by Roman commissioners."
This is the "freedom" that Washington imposes on the world.
In the end, empire destroys itself.
As Gerald Celente had forecast, "The 1st Great War of the 21st Century" has begun.
Embassy Riots Pale Next to State Terror Tempest
