“Military men are just dumb, stupid animals to be used as pawns in foreign policy.” — Henry Kissinger, former Secretary of State, as quoted by Bob Woodward and Carl Bernstein in “The Final Days”
All modern wars are engineered for profit, business posturing, and global imperialism. There are no “honest” wars today. This is one message that I’ve worked for years to instill within my listening audience. It is frivolity to sign up for the military and go to war because of blind patriotism and “love of country.” As great as it would be to be able to pronounce that fighting “enemies” abroad equates with “serving one’s country”, the truth is much different. “Enemies” are regularly defined — and redefined — by a government that has proven itself to be deceptive, hostile to human life and individual freedom, and hostile to the national interests of the American people. Anyone who doesn’t see this truth, is either a pitiful victim of the Establishment media propaganda outlets, or is choosing to live with their heads buried deep in the sand. If they don’t wake up soon, they may find themselves literally buried in the sand — perhaps, Middle Eastern sand.
We’ve oft heard the repeated adage that to understand the world around us, one only need to look at the players and “follow the money”. If trails of money and blood are to be followed, the drivers of the wagon, down that wellworn path, are a clan called the Kagans.
One individual who has been making the rounds on the TV “news” outlets as an “expert” on the Iraq Syria conflict is Kimberly Kagan, the founder and leader of the Institute for the Study of War. When asked in a recent CSpan appearance what the purpose was of her organization and who funds them, she was quick to go on the defensive by saying they “do not advocate war, we study it.” This claim rings hollow when you examine the corporate sponsors of the organization, which are listed in their annual report (pdf) on their website:
Dynamics — Fifth largest defense contractor in the
world, supplying “marine, combat, information technology and aerospace
• CACI International — Fortune 1000 company that “provides information services in support of national security missions and government transformation for intelligence, defense, and federal civilian customers.” Incidentally, CACI was one of the companies that was involved in the Abu Ghraib prisoner abuse scandal in the early days of the war on Iraq.
• DynCorp International — Private military contractor and aircraft manufacturer.
• Palantir Technologies — Computer analysis and software company whose main customer is the United States government. It was cofounded by Peter Thiel, the same Libertarian that sits on the steering committee of the Bilderberg Group, and who bankrolled Ron Paul’s 2012 election campaign. (Sorry, I just had to point that out for all of patriot sheep / hero worshippers.)
• Northrop Grumman — 4th largest aerospace and defense technology company in the world.
These are some of the corporate sponsors of the Institute for the Study of War. As you can see, they are backed by a formidable “Who’s Who” of the Military Industrial Complex. You don’t think the Kagan clan could be influenced by some of the largest military defense, contracting, aerospace, and IT companies in the world, do you? Perish the thought! Put on your tin foil hat, you silly conspiracy kook! Better go pop your happy pills and play nice with the little kitty.
Now that we got rid of the conspiracy nutjobs, let’s get down to business!
Kimberly Kagan is married to Frederick Kagan, whose father is Donald Kagan. Donald’s brother is Robert Kagan, a senior fellow at the Brookings Institution, member of the Council on Foreign Relations, foreign policy advisor to several Republican candidates as well as to Hillary “Rotten” Clinton while she was Secretary of State. Robert Kagan’s wife is former State Department spokesdrone Victoria Nuland. Talk about keeping it all in the family! Sheesh. Of course, Victoria Nuland is the “diplomat” known for being, shall we say, not quite so diplomatic?
Speaking of lacking diplomacy, the rest of the family isn’t quite your “Brady Bunch” variety either. Frederick, Donald, and Robert Kagan were all original founders, along with Richard “Despot Dick” Cheney, of the Project for the New American Century. The PNAC was the neocon think tank which produced the report Rebuilding America's Defenses: Strategies, Forces, and Resources For a New Century (pdf). It is this document that I refer to as the blueprint for the war on terror. Or, more accurately, “the War Of Terror”. The PNAC poops laid out the countries wherein they wanted to enact regime change and even stated that they needed a “new Pearl Harbor” type event to pull it off. Nothing like stating your goals plainly. After all, nobody ever actually reads anything these think tanks publish anyway, right? What’s that? Someone did read it? Whoops! Who’d a thunk it? We’ve gotta get that “Common Core” thing moving a little faster!
Rebuilding America’s Defenses was published in September 2000, before the Bush presidency. One year later, their “Pearl Harbor” event was conveniently executed. They planned the “War Of Terror” before 9/11, used the engineered crisis to overthrow the Middle Eastern governments which remain destabilized to this day, costing countless lives on both sides, as the bodies continue to pile up. That, my friends, is no laughing matter.
For their crimes against mankind, they were given toplevel clearance and access to classified documents by General David Petraeus, who allowed these war profiteers to plan U.S. war strategy during his command. Putting representatives of the Military Industrial Complex in charge of U.S. war policy and planning? What could possibly go wrong?
The Kagans brag about how they took no money from the U.S. government for their “services,” as they worked 18 hour days, 7 days a week, sometimes visiting dangerous battlefields. Kimberly Kagan would have us believe that the ongoing work they do is — as her website states it — out of frustration “with the prevailing lack of accurate information documenting developments on the ground in Iraq and the detrimental effect of biased reporting on policymakers…”. She reiterated this on CSpan: “We study ongoing conflicts in order to provide policymakers and decision makers with the best possible information about what’s going on in war zones…”
Gee, isn’t this why we pay intelligence agencies, God knows, how many billions? God really is the only one who knows, because their budgets are all classified. I guess the intel agencies are now too busy eavesdropping and collecting information about the American people to worry about camelriding cave dwellers and sand fleabitten jihadists. The Kagans have taken over and are doing it now out of a general love of — what? Killing people? If we’re to believe it isn’t their Military Industrial Complex cash cow, then what else could it be?
At a time when poverty is on the rise in the United States, and Americans are increasingly going homeless and hungry, the Obama administration has taken taxpayer monies and funded, trained, and armed the “moderate” Syrian rebels. Priorities! These are the same rebels who “moderately” cut the heart out of a soldier and took a bite of it on camera. Swell bunch of fellows, these “moderates”. Boys will be boys, I guess. Glad they’re on our side, huh? Hope the money doesn’t run out. Of course, they are also aligned with other terrorist organizations. But hey, no one’s perfect.
So I guess we shouldn’t be surprised that they crossed the border into Iraq, and decided to establish their new caliphate under the name of the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (ISIS). After all, who doesn’t want their own caliphate? It’s the “in” thing, you know.
I suppose I would be remiss if I didn’t point out that in Greek mythology, Isis is the mother of Horus, whose eye sits atop of the pyramid on the back of the dollar bill. The pyramid is an ancient symbol of Illuminati power, which proves that Islamist jihadists really do have a lot more in common with the Washingtonites who fund them. I suppose being an “expert” on war is really easy when you’re pulling the strings of the combatants.
Speaking of combatants, now I hear that the ISIS is a threat to the American homeland. I bet that wasn’t supposed to happen. It seems the Kagans, the Cheneys, and the other “experts” are singing that little tune about fighting them “over there” so we don’t have to face them at home. Strange, I think I’ve heard that some place in the past. Now, line up your children, patriotic sheep. Bahhh. It’s not kind to keep the nice recruiter waiting. Time to “serve your country”. Off to the slaughter.
