In an editorial dated November 11 2008, the NYSlime, called on Obama to continue Bush’s wars by other means. Urging a withdrawal from Iraq, the editorial went on to endorse war in Afghanistan:
“The United States and its NATO allies must be able to defeat the Taliban and Al Qaeda in Afghanistan AND keep pursuing Al Qaeda forces around the world.”
(Please to note “around the world”.)
Written in Slimeze, the editorial was a de facto endorsement of neo-con full spectrum interventionism.
Today the Slime reports on, and endorses sub silentio, a New War in Africa.
“The Somalia campaign is a blueprint for warfare that President Obama has embraced and will pass along to his successor.”
With inestimable aplomb, the Slimes states that the current strategy will not repeat the “mistakes” made in Afghanistan and called for in its editorial of 11/11/08.
The Slimes quietly omits the Administration’s construction of a new drone base in Niger to serve as a key regional hub for U.S. military operations.
Once again, the P.N.A.C.’s 9/2000 white paper (Rebuilding America’s Defenses) serves as the ongoing blue print for a fully continuous foreign policy that has remained in effect since 9/2001. The difference between Obama and Bush is simply a modulation as to which part of the spectrum will be active in any given place or time. It's ultimate effect and secret purpose is nation destruction.
In all events what the Slime has just told anyone who wants to have a brain worthy of being used, is that the Annointed One, will continue the policy of nation-destruction which she and her boss so ably executed in Libya, Syria, and Afghanistan — not to mention Yemen.
One correction needs to be noted. The New York Slime speaks of this issue as a matter of United States foreign policy. That is anachronistic and misleading. There is no such thing as “American” foreign policy. There is simply a global corporate policy with economic, diplomatic and military aspects, carried out by a prime enforcer.
Pity the elephants.
