“I am tired and sick of war. Its glory is all moonshine. It is only those who have neither fired a shot nor heard the shrieks and groans of the wounded who cry aloud for blood, for vengeance, for desolation. War is hell.” ~ William Tecumseh Sherman
Sadly, there are many daily reminders that our “leaders” are among the most horrible and deranged of human beings when one reads of the following from one of our unelected “officials”.
In a recent statement, Mike Pompeo, CIA director, talked about assassinating Kim Jong-un. He stated,
With respect to … if Kim Jong-un should vanish, given the history of the CIA, I’m just not going to talk about it,” Pompeo said.
The CIA has been known for a number of clandestine efforts to overthrow or eliminate national leaders around the world, including in Iran, Cuba, Congo and Vietnam, according to AFP.
“Someone might think there was a coincidence. ‘You know, there was an accident.’ It’s just not fruitful,” Pompeo added speaking at a forum organized by the Foundations for the Defense of Democracies. – via sputniknews.com
Pompeo then ominously stated that the CIA is “going to become a much more vicious agency”. – via theduran.com
Like the grade school bully who never grew up and now has at his beck and call thousands of other nutjobs who couldn’t deny any order for more death and destruction no matter how many innocents involved, such shysters aren’t happy unless there’s death and mayhem happening somewhere on the planet. And they are seemingly most happy to supply the destruction, unless, of course, it may be on their doorstep – no matter whether the DPRK is willing to engage in broad dialogue with potential international partners or not.
When you have someone the likes of the CIA Director, the POTUS, Senators, the UN Ambassador to the United Nations and other appointed government atrocities continually calling for wars, assassinations and death to thousands, your government has failed.
But, it is to be expected. It’s been a downgrade of all that is right, good, decent, tasteful, artistic and inspiring – the march toward insanity and self-destruction greatly assisted with this little event that few know about, over a hundred years ago.
“Let us control the money of a country, and we care not who makes its laws.” –Mayer Amschel Rothschild
In place of Logic, Ethics, Art History and the study of Fine Arts in general, not to mention the expulsion of God, religion or any other ideas to inspire the mind toward the world (both physical and spiritual) outside themselves, the young are subjected to a menu of hogwash passed off as enlightened…the hip, the current rage. Having not been taught tools of discernment and, in turn, fed with government propaganda backed by the media pressitutes pumping the government BS, each generation subsequent to the greatest generation have been dumbed down to the point where they can’t decipher truth from guano, and more sadly, don’t care to. Thus, we suffer the likes of Mr. Pompeo and his ilk, who seemingly have no problems with assassinations, death and destruction as a way of life.
As Dr. Paul Craig Roberts writes:
The hoax “war on terror” has turned America into a Gestapo state. Not many Americans directly experience the consequences, but they will be denied valid information as the Gestapo American state closes down all dissent on the grounds that it is harmful to national security. People who speak their minds will find that they no longer have First Amendment protection.
Every passing day truth is less and less prevalent in the United States. Democratic control over the government is already nonexistent. Essentially, Americans live in the Fourth Reich which has already budded and is now blossoming.
Wars and their expense will continue to multiply as the military/security complex uses manufactured “threats” to continue the excessive flow of American resources into more weapons to be used in the destruction of more countries.
The truth, less and less visible yet quietly and clearly seen in the minds and hearts of many is that the country has been overtaken with most heinous of serpents.
