    There is a certain amount of that, isn't there? It is a temptation to look at who is being stirred up against whom, and say, good. Step back out of the way and root for the total body count. But when the dust settles, will the Head Psychos In Charge, do you think, say, 'OK, all clear, we burned out the underbrush and now martial law is over, the Constitution is back in effect, we'll stop all the wars and deliberately destroying the economy, and reinstate sound money and start giving you people you can vote for, instead of just people you have to vote against?

    Awwww.... did I hurt your feewings? Wikileaks is an interesting case. Julian's motives are what I question. Everything he does must be looked at through the lens of someone who is a political prisoner who would do anything to 'be released.' That's all he wants, is his freedom, and he will broker whatever info he can to get it. Don't take shit so personal.

    It can become that, yes, but it is not necessarily so. The truth is the truth. That so-called "neocons" pervert it, either by design or though ineptitude, does not alter the facts. What you point out further underscores the need to be smart, as well as to have good personal integrity. The fact that these qualities are so rare, speaks no optimistic word for the future. It makes all the difference in the world. Firstly, if you re-read what I wrote, you will see that I pretty clearly posited that the lines between "intervention" and proper defensive action have become very blurred in some cases. If I'm walking the street at 3 AM and a man begins fiddling to draw a firearm, all else equal I am well justified in taking measures to forestall with a preemptive strike. It is no different between nations; if I have truthful intelligence that NK is about to launch a nuke at me, I reserve every right to strike first. Yes, this carries its own risks and potentially problematic consequences, but them's the breaks. It is sometimes a shitty, risk-laden world and we often run the chance of getting something terribly wrong. This is one of the results to be expected in a world where people refuse or otherwise fail to mind their own. In a Golden Rule world, things are very different, but none of us live there, even if we practice as if we did. I am, in fact, against intervention in the current sense of the word. But what yesterday might have clearly stood as intervention, today may well qualify as a defensive measure.

    That's it. And it's not too hard to see the powers that be are convinced they can steer toward totalitarianism. Praising--or just giving cover to--groups doing things which could trigger martial law, which seems to be about the only thing antifa ever does, certainly gives us a clue as to what their intentions are. They certainly are pulling out all the stops. If they fail, they're not going to have many bridges unburned behind them. They're shredding the last vestiges of their MSM's credibility. They're shredding the last scraps of their education system's credibility. They are, in short, going for broke.

    I think I'll shut up and let him clarify himself. All I know is, the left is more than hypocritical enough to be offended by whatever statement they can contrive to misconstrue, yet be as offensive as they know how. Why he says the right can't do the same when the alt-right is as foul-mouthed a bunch of hysterical, melting snowflakes as the nation has ever seen, I'm sure I can't explain.

    He didn't say more incendiary. He said more incendiary to the establishment. They might find Trump's goofy Celebrity Apprentice persona useful, but they don't really consider him one of them and they certainly wouldn't miss him if something happened to him. They'd just be tickled pink at the way we go after each other in the aftermath, and the chance to slap down martial law.

    Afghanistan is a different story, but not very different. The mountainous terrain is so difficult for a military to deal with, that numerous attempts to conquer it by large, technically advanced nations have failed, and often bankrupted the country that tried. The most recent was the Soviet Union. But if you want to export natural gas from the Caucuses, you need a pipeline across Afghanistan. It's also the most perfect climate in all the world for growing poppies, and the CIA does love to supply the world with opioids. Nation building? Spreading democracy? Just telling people what we're really fighting for will eventually go a long way toward ending this madness. Expect people to be unhappy you told them the truth. Expect them to appear to reject what you say. But it's like planting a seed. At first you think you didn't do any good at all. But later you often find that the truth did take root after all.

    Great article. +rep. I think it adequately explains why I've been having such a hard time engaging in this latest "controversy". I find it extremely difficult to relate at that level of consciousness. I think many of us in this forum are experiencing the same disconnect. We are among the few.

    Have you looked into the Federal Reserve? You get taught that it's a harmless entity that tries to control the supply of our money to prevent recessions and make the ones it can't prevent less destructive, but always seems to fail at that, as the worst recessions the nation has ever seen have all happened since it took over. In reality it's a collection of the world's richest banks who were given the ability to make money the old fashioned way--they get to print it. They have 'managed' the money supply in such a way that the dollar is worth a nickel--a person with a nickel in 1913 could buy just as much as a person with a dollar today, and a person with a dollar back then could buy as much as a person with twenty bucks today. The middle class is gone because the dollar buys less every day, but your boss won't give you a raise every day. The dollar is also required to buy oil. Country X is not allowed to buy oil from Country Y with their own currency, or Country Y's currency, or gold, or any thing else. They have to buy dollars first, then use the dollars to buy the oil. This is what the term petrodollar means. It allows the Federal Reserve to print more dollars without the value of the dollar not just going down, but plummeting, because it creates additional demand for the dollar. Countries buy oil with the petrodollar for a simple reaon. Iraq sold oil for gold in the late nineties, and suddenly we were being told they had yellowcake uranium. Selling oil for something other than dollars is fatal. Not exactly what eighteen year olds are told by all those recruiters, eh? But it's a fact. The Fed is tied to the age-old Rothschild family. Official central banks are their family business, and have been for centuries. In the year of 2000 the seven countries without a Rothschild owned or controlled Central Bank were Afghanistan, Iraq, Sudan, Libya, Cuba, North Korea and Iran. The only countries left in 2011 without a Central Bank owned or controlled by the Rothschild Family are Cuba, North Korea and Iran. Do those names sound familiar? Have you heard Lindsay Graham calling for you to join the army and go kick their asses on Sunday mornings?

    Hmmm... I'd caution you that this is the path of neoconnery, but I'm not sure it would make a difference. You're not really against intervention - you just want them to do it the right way? Well, that's what they ALL say. The problem, of course, is that our government can't even get our own affairs right. And even if they were to somehow intervene in a manner of which you approved, there'd be a new administration in a couple of years to do the exact opposite. In other words, you can NEVER intervene smoothly. Unfortunately, pre-crime doesn't work. And those that try it, just put a larger target on themselves. Blowback.

    I serves to point out that the notion of intervening, in the usual contemporary sense, is no longer clear. What would have in an age past unequivocally qualified as "intervention", might today clearly be seen as a defensive measure. Our technologies, coupled with our apparent determination to cleave to world-views that appear not to serve well in the context of said technologies, have complicated human relations immeasurably. What was once black and white is now washed-out grey. My normative ideals tell me to mind my own business. My practice of those ideals say the same. What has changed in time is the definition of "my business". Two hundred years ago, there was comparatively little one nation could foist upon another beyond things such as invading with troops. Today, the technological capabilities of men allow them to develop means for foisting devastation upon their neighbors without stepping a single boot across borders. Computer attacks, long range missiles, bioweapons, and so on down that list. Consider Iran or North Korea. If we accept that they are developing nuclear capabilities for the sake of, say, hurting America (just to be self-centered), then from the purely practical standpoint, traditional "non-interventionism" becomes by degrees with time more and more untenable if one's goal is not to be, say, blown to nuclear smithereens. For me, among the true practical problems today is telling when a positive action against a global neighbor is rightly defensive, vis-à-vis "intervention". The nature of the problem seems not so much one's ability to tell whether a threat is real, but whether those entrusted to make such determinations can be trusted for both capacity, as well as integrity. Consider our lovely little Gulf War, Part Deux. "Oh my GOD... weapons of mass destruction..." Well, that didn't turn out to be true. Is CIA inept? Doubtful, but that's irrelevant because it's either that or they were selling a very lousy bill of goods, which means they cannot be trusted. Then the question of how extensive the rot, arises. Personally, I am not in any way inclined to lend credence to the notion that these apparent failures are the result of mistakes, accidents, ineptitude, etc. The methods of waging war are well known and that which we see today fits the patterns perfectly. Modern warfare is become more about keeping people off their mental balance more than it is about bombs and bullets.

    Acetic acid, D-limonene and ordinary dish soap are very effective and it does not hurt the soil microbes. Toxic herbicides/pesticides have stripped our soils of the good minerals, is it any wonder why people are so unhealthy? Oh and this is nothing new, in the late 1930's Government was well aware of these issues and even addressed it. I guess we can thank Lincoln, once again, for implementing the DoA. :rolleyes:
