A Nation of Navel Gazers - Staring into the Abyss

A Nation of Navel Gazers

As the rest of the world stands back and collectively scratches our head in wonderment, the United States elites continue to frantically do the backstroke in circles around the teapot tempest.

No wonder Lavrov was photographed laughing so jovially in the Oval office the other day.  What else can you do?  Witness the silly e-mail below...that passes for presidential communication:

James Comey better hope that there are no "tapes" of our conversations before he starts leaking to the press!



With everything that's going on in the world, including Russian military commanders recently arriving at the catastrophic conclusion that the US is actively planning a pre-emptive nuclear strike on Russia, the "intelligencia" and the complicit media is obsessing over the firing of one hold-over bureaucrat from the previous administration.  Most "democracies" have protocols where the heads of ministries offer their resignations automatically.  Comey certainly should have, considering all the controversy surrounding his mid-election flip-flops on politically charged investigations.

It's not that the US bureaucracy/state/deep state/dark state isn't a criminal cesspool.  It is.  It's just that the Justice System stagecoach left Dodge long ago.  It's too late to climb aboard now.  There's no justice in Washington...for any bureaucrat above the level of dog-catcher, that is.  Trump, himself promised justice for Hillary...and immediately dropped the ball subsequent to the election.  Now he's acting like a school-yard bully on "Twitter"...double-daring Comey to spill the beans...What Beans?  Who cares!  Nothing will be done about it no matter what it is.

In the meantime, the nuclear clock is ticking ever closer to midnight...but Americans aren't even aware that, behind their backs, their government is planning to take on Russia and China in a nuclear showdown.   A few weeks ago, the US set off the "Mother of all Bombs", the largest conventional bomb ever detonated, in Afghanistan.  Afghanistan was arguably the "beginning of the end" for the US.  It was the first of the "Seven Countries In Five Years", (after the 9/11 Mossad False Flag) ordered to be destroyed by the US Military on behalf of the Ziofacists.  That war is still going on and getting worse. Again, Americans are being kept completely in the dark.  Here's a rare update from the alternate media. h/t to Signs Of The Times:

The Afghanistan Syndrome: American Chaos vs. Russian Reconciliation

You may not have heard about this, but a few weeks ago, in mid-April, the Taliban scored its deadliest battle victory since the US invasion in 2001. Ten Taliban militants slaughtered at least 144 Afghan Army soldiers and wounded 60+ more, at an Afghan army base just outside of Mazar-i-Sharif in the north of the country.

The attack took place about a week after Trump dropped the largest conventional bomb the US has ever used on an area in eastern Afghanistan. I'm starting to wonder if the MOAB was as much a paranoid, desperate attempt to "send a message" to Russia and Iran as it was meant to kill Islamic State fighters in the area, but I'll get to that in a minute.

The attack on the Afghan Army base in the north was a turkey shoot: The Afghan Army soldiers were largely unarmed and caught by surprise, just emerging from Friday prayers for lunch on their base, when about half a dozen Taliban militants stormed the base with help from four Taliban plants inside the Afghan Army base. The killing lasted 5 hours. The Taliban say they killed 500, and some witnesses claim many more than 140 were killed. It's even possible that one or two of the attackers got away.

Everything about this slaughter is bad news if you're looking at it from the US point of view. The Taliban said the attack was in retaliation for the killings of two of their shadow province leaders in the north of the country—and that, along with the ease with which they carried this out, suggests they could do a lot more of these types of massacres if they felt they needed to. The way the Taliban tells it, the massacre was more like a warning: "Don't kill our leaders like that—we can fuck you up much worse than you can us...."

Blogger Mark Ames ended his post on the Afghanistan debacle with the following profound summation applicable to all the wars the US has ever gotten itself into...or, should I say, that the Ziofacists have ever suckered it into like a dumb bully in a school yard:

**************

[Mark Ames] "....I'll end this with an old Siberian punk song, "Afghanskii Syndrome"—it's a cover version by the great Egor Letov of a song by another Siberian punk band from Tyumen, from 1990, just after the Soviet withdrawal. A rough translation of the final verse:
What's it mean to lose a war

It means to be ashamed of medals

It means to return to your homeland

Where they shun you like you're a cattle rustler

What's it mean to lose a war

It means to learn how to shoot

It means to return and live like a coiled spring

Having grown used to killing with ease."

Living "like a coiled spring"...that just about describes the entire citizenry in the US these days.
Can't you see what is going on, folks?  "They" [the usual suspects] have you dazed and confused...swirling in an endless vortex of inconsequential parlour drama politics.  The US government has turned into a virtual schoolyard.  The adults are all on the outside of the chain-link fence watching the squabbling.

My advice to Donald Trump?  Wake up and grow up before it's too late. Quit the juvenile Twittering and start to solve the messes your country has made... just the way they were started--one country at a time--beginning with Afghanistan.
