Ignorance and Apathy – A Ticket to Our Own Demise

Warmongers, Inc., a/k/a Washington’s gang of stooges, thugs and psychopath’s continue to drop their dung upon humanity, vying for the charming position of groom of the stool for Beelzebub for a spell of eternity they’ll be spending in Gehenna.

These are jovial chaps, as long as there’s a war somewhere in the Middle East that they can send Americans sons and daughters to carry out their f**kery on innocents and also possibly die in the process.  Spreading evil, destruction and death…it’s what these dickheads live for.

White House Reviews US Military Plan for 120,000 Troops for Iran War

By Jason Ditz

(ANTIWAR.COM) —  John Bolton ordered the Pentagon to come up with an “updated” plan for getting more American troops into the Middle East to fight a war against Iran. The plans are in now, according to officials, who say that the options envision 120,000 US ground troops in the Middle East.

Incredibly, this option appears to just be the start of the war, as officials say that the 120,000 plan does not include a US ground invasion of Iran. Officials concede that the ground invasion would require far more troops.

Yes, Iran poses such a grave threat to the United States.  Iran has a defense budget of $6,300,000,000 – the United States, $716,000,000,000.  Total military personnel – Iran, 873,000 – the US, 2,141,900.  Total aircraft – Iran, 509 – the US, 13,198.  More of the comparison can be found here.

Iran hasn’t invaded anyone, or started a war in more than two centuries.

America Has Been at War 93% of the time – 222 out of 239 years – Since 1776.

Sadly, the US has never gone a decade without war.

The narrative of an “increased threat” posed by Iran and its proxies across the Middle East is being used to justify a US military buildup and a general escalation of tensions in the area. British Maj. Gen. Chris Ghika, however, has raised serious doubts about that.

Maj. Gen. Ghika said that there has been “no increased threat from Iranian-backed forces,” despite the claims from US officials, mostly Secretary of State Mike Pompeo and John Bolton. Perhaps more damningly, Ghika says he does not believe there is any daylight between Britain’s assessment of “no increased threat” and the assessment from US intelligence. – via antiwar.com

“WAR is a racket. It always has been.
It is possibly the oldest, easily the most profitable, surely the most vicious. It is the only one
international in scope. It is the only one in which the profits are reckoned in dollars and the
losses in lives.” ― Smedley Butler, War Is a Racket

How few care…how few even know.
