A group of President Trump’s supporters said they were glad that he pushed the Prime Minister of Montenegro out of the way while walking with NATO leaders. This they said showed that the United States was done being pushed around.
These supporters did not view it as just more boorish American behavior! The Ugly American is alive and well and is once again on full display not only in South East Asia, but in the Middle East and Europe as well. Washington wants the American people to see the whole world as a threat. Every nation and its people want to bring down the United States and kill the American people.
None of this is true. The current administration along with past administrations often sight China as a preeminent threat to the United States. China has not been at war for the past 17 years. In fact the last conflict China was in was in the 1970’s and it was a brief border skirmish with Vietnam; prior to that it was the Korean War that ended in 1953.
The U.S. has been in a constant state of war since WWII. Those wars have not been good to the American people unless you are an Arms Company! If you are then these wars have been a gold mine to you. It should be noted that even though the U.S. has been in this constant state of war, it has not won any of them.
Each war has simply led to another enemy, another war, another wave of propaganda designed to justify the war while scaring the citizens of this country. American troops are in many other countries, the armies of those countries are not in the United States; and that is one of the reasons the people of those countries fight the United States.
A thread of that propaganda tells Americans we are fighting them over there so we don’t have to fight them over here. This is not true either but many people want to believe it because if it’s not true then it would mean Washington has been lying to them.
The current war, “The War on Terror” is a dream come true for the Military Industrial Complex; it’s a war with no conceivable end! There is no government that can surrender to the U.S. no country that can be taken; another meat-grinder for each new generation!
