Rove's magic, part IV

I have just read a long interview with Karl Rove posted by a New Hampshire organization, Victory NH, which appears to be a front for the Republican Party. Readers can find it at http://www.victorynh.com/rove-interview.htm, and Rove comes across as far more articulate than any other Administration spokesman, leaving little doubt why he is, almost surely, the real power in Washington today. As I have speculated before, it was probably Rove who in 2004 told Ron Susskind that the Administration governed in defiance of “the reality-based community,” and his attitude towards facts is certainly apparent in the interview.

His attitude towards information warfare is too. The great advantage now held by the Republicans, he points out, is that millions of Americans can now get their news from Rush Limbaugh and the internet, rather than from major newspapers and wire services. That means, of course, that they can learn to understand the day’s news as a battle between valiant conservatives and wimpy, treacherous liberals, and millions undoubtedly do. He suggests that the internet has hurt the Democratic Party by encouraging its shriller elements. Actually it has the same effect on both sides, the difference being that Rove, by a variety of means, has managed to get and keep President Bush in the White House during the last two elections, one of which he almost certainly lost and the second of which he won by a very narrow margin.

Talking about the economy, though, Rove really hits his stride: He begins by listing Bush tax cuts and claiming they are responsible for “the creation of five million jobs” and for increases in home ownership. Then he says:

“And what has happened over the last 2 years? You match that kind of economic growth with the kind of spending restraint that we’ve seen in the federal budget, and some powerful things happen. Last year, between the increased revenues and restraints on spending, we had a dramatic decline in the deficit – well below the expectations of all the budget forecasters. And it’s happening again this year where revenues are running 11% above projections. That’s not because taxes have been raised, it’s because the economic growth has been so much higher as a result of lower taxes that we are blowing through the projections for the second year in a row in revenue.

“As a result, we are well on the way to reducing the deficit – despite the fact that we are in a war and having to pay for the largest natural disaster in America’s history. We are on the way to cutting the deficit in half by 2009. In fact, by the middle of the summer, with the so-called mid-session review (that’s where the Office of Management and Budget and the Treasury are obligated to report to the Congress on how we’re doing on collecting revenues and restraining spending), my sense is we will see a dramatic decline in the anticipated deficit for this year, as well.”

The reality is somewhat different. As I pointed out many months ago, Bush’s tax cuts in the first three years of his Administration had an unprecedented effect on the budget. Even Reagan’s cuts (and a huge recession) had forced federal revenues to fall in only one year, fiscal 1983. Bush’s cuts dropped federal revenues for three years in a row, a combined 15% or so drop by fiscal 1984. They have indeed risen quite rapidly since then, and reached 2.15 trillion this year, passing the 2000 figure for the first time. Meanwhile, outlays rose from $1.86 trillion in fiscal 2001 to $2.47 trillion in fiscal 2005—that is why we have a $330 billion deficit. “The budget deficit is in pretty rapid decline to where we will cut the deficit in half by 2009,” Rove says, but the executive branch’s own figures say no such thing. According to them, the fiscal 2005 deficit (fiscal 2005 ended last October 1) was $318 billion, a $100 million drop for last year, but the fiscal 2006 deficit will be $423 billion. Rove claims interim figures are more optimistic. We’ll see.

The basic rhetorical technique here is borrowed from Ronald Reagan, who also began his term with a big recession and then took credit for the jobs added in the recovery as if he had started at the bottom. Having gone from a $128 billion surplus (fiscal 2001) to a deficit of over $400 billion, Rove and President Bush now take great credit for getting it back down to $300 billion and promise more. Of course, future predictions of improvement are based on the scheduled expiration of some of the Administration’s tax cuts, which they have no intention of restoring. The device of passing tax cuts for only a few years at a time, I suspect, is designed to make Republicans and Democrats vote on taxes year after year and provide Republican candidates with sound bites.

Rove argues, of course, that Bush’s tax cuts have created the economic recovery. But remarkably, the money poured into the economy by his tax cuts—most of which, of course, has gone to very wealthy Americans—is dwarfed by the expansion of credit during his Administration. The deficits in his first four budgets total $1.266 trillion dollars, but during the same time, outstanding mortgages have grown by about twice that much. Consumer debt has grown another $3-400 billion, making a total private debt increase of nearly $3 trillion dollars. That, it would seem, is where the money to fuel consumer demand has been coming from.

Having apparently escaped indictment, Rove now has another rabbit to pull out of his hat, a victory in the November elections. His economic argument, above, will be one of his two pillars. The other will be blasting the Democrats as hopelessly weak and inadequate for threatening to pull out of Iraq and taking credit for the new government and the death of Al Zarqawi. (The Administration has, of course, already identified his replacement.)

It has occurred to me recently that think tanks like the American Enterprise Institute, the Heritage Foundation, and the Project for a New American Century are critical to the current Republican enterprise in a way that does not get much attention. They provide homes—families, really—where the holders of “conservative” beliefs can reinforce one another’s confidence rather than have to face reality or contend with opposing views. Supply-side economics has never worked, but it fits the political needs of Republicans so well that two or three generations of them have embraced it since 1980. William Kristol has apparently said that he may fold up the PNAC because its main mission, the overthrow of Saddam Hussein, has been accomplished. In those tanks, Republican thinkers learn to refer to anything useful the federal government does as “programs that have failed,” and therefore not the sort of thing in which one would want to invest more money in, say, after Hurricane Katrina. These think tanks originally began as a response to the Brookings Institution, but it suffers from a critical disadvantage, a respect for facts and an assumption that others share it. Rove is counting on the men and women who get their news from Fox and Rush Limbaugh, and they have provided the critical margins in the last three elections. The Republicans today hold their economic premises every bit as firmly as their ancestral elephants believed in free markets before the Depression, and nothing but a similar catastrophe, I suspect, will change any of their minds.

Expose Capitalists’ Divide-and-Conquer Statecraft to Partition Iraq
Under False Pretext: “To Prevent Civil War” after U.S. Failed Attempt to Instigate a Civil War by Provocation, which the Iraqis Recognize and Reject!

United States Sacrifices Their Own Agent Provocateur Zarqawi
Recognized by the Majority of Iraqis to be Working For the U.S.!
Zarqawi’s Zero Credibility Made Him Worth More Dead Than Alive!
U.S. Trumpets Phony “Great Propaganda Victory” For Bush Regime!
U.S. Steps Up Sectarian Bombing Provocations as Pretext for Partition!

The U.S. Invasion of Iraq affects every person on this planet either directly or indirectly, and ultimately provides the basis for the Call for Mutiny by the U.S. armed forces in Iraq—which in turn is the Precondition for a Socialist Revolution in the United States. The U.S. objective from before the invasion has been to instigate a civil war in Iraq and short of that to PARTITION IRAQ by any means possible, which has been the main objective of the United States! The capitalists have used their agent, Abu-Musab al-Zarqawi (see below), to manipulate Sunni Islamic fundamentalists to blow up Shiite Mosques on a regular basis and to frequently attack innocent civilians (Innocent civilians are not those applying to work for the United States puppet military!) in order to try to: 1.) Discredit the Iraqi Liberation Movement, which is mostly separate and apart from the fundamentalist provocateurs manipulated by the U.S. through Zarqawi & Co., which are not supported by the Iraqi masses 2.) Create division and to try to set the basis for a U.S.-instigated civil war and 3.) help the Bush Regime domestically. Having failed to actually instigate a civil war, which the majority of Iraqis recognize as the divide-and-conquer objective of the United States, the U.S. still plans to partition Iraq under the phony pretext of “preventing a full-scale civil war!”(!)

This objective has not changed in the slightest with the U.S. assassination of their agent Zarqawi. In fact Zarqawi’s assassination was a deliberate provocation which was carried out partly in order to try to recruit more Islamic Fundamentalists from among the Iraqis to increase the scale of Sunni-Shiite division in Iraq as a supposed “backlash” against murder of the “great martyr.” Meanwhile the U.S. media have pored it on and falsely try to equate the U.S.-instigated provocations/atrocities by the Zarqawi-led Sunnis and the retaliatory atrocities by the Shiites as “proof of civil war,” and many Americans have even been “convinced” that there is a civil war—just as convinced as they were that there were weapons of mass destruction in Iraq! It’s time to wake up. A tape from Osama Bin Laden released on July 2, 2006 praising Zarqawi documents an apparent reversal of the previous Al Qaeda policy of opposing Sunni-Shiite division and now supports the same civil war objective of the United States in Iraq. (See below for comprehensive discussions of Occupied Palestine, the statecraft of capitalism and religion and the 911 Attack where the U.S. used the Osama Bin Laden Islamic Fundamentalists to carry out what was a carefully planned and executed U.S. Government-Facilitated Provocation.) In Iraq the actions of Abu Al Masri, the new U.S. chosen front man for the divide and conquer policies of “Al Qaeda in Mesopotamia” continue e.g. with huge car bombs targeting even the poorest Shiite areas—Sadr City markets killing and injuring hundreds. Now with the support of Osama Bin Laden, who plays directly into the hands of the United States, the U.S. Invasion of Iraq which was carried out to steal the oil and directly dictate to the entire Middle East, can be more easily falsely portrayed as a “key to the War on Terrorism!”

The fact that Zarqawi had so little credibility in Iraq increased his expendability rating off the charts. His assassination was actually another act of desperation by the United States! The U.S. assassination of Zarqawi was designed 1.) To turn Zarqawi into a some sort of “martyr” to try to generate recruitment of more fundamentalists and 2.) To falsely disassociate the U.S. from their agent, widely understood in Iraq to be a U.S. agent. It is widely recognized throughout the Mideast that Zarqawi’s deliberate attempt to foment Sunni-Shiite division and a civil war in Iraq, which has not happened, has defined the U.S. divide and conquer policy in Iraq. The recently released outtakes made from the recently released promotional film (see below) were an indication that Zarqawi’s usefulness as a “fundamentalist hero” in Iraq had come to an end. 3.) The third objective of Zarqawi’s assassination by his own masters was also to try to pump up the Bush regime prior to the 2006 Midterm “Elections” and build support for the continuing Invasion of Iraq within the U.S. domestic audience with the ridiculous claim that “Zarqawi’s death is a severe blow for Al Qaeda” and “now represents a turning point for Bush regime in Iraq.” The U.S. media have gone all out to falsely equate Zarqawi with the Iraqi Liberation Movement, which he is not, and when the reality is that the U.S./Zarqawi objective has been to manipulate those who sincerely oppose the U.S. invasion into instead helping to achieve the U.S. objective of partition of Iraq! The overwhelming majority of Iraqis hated and despised Zarqawi because his objectives were and remain the U.S. objectives!! Note that the U.S. chose not to capture and arrest Zarqawi but to kill him. The U.S. knew his location precisely and could easily have gotten the drop on him. The reason that they did not want to capture him was because he was a U.S. agent and would have revealed his myriad connections with his U.S. masters. The capitalist media have also use Zarqawi’s assassination to take the focus of the U.S. massacre in Haditha and other routine massacres and atrocities committed daily by the terrorist U.S. invaders all over Iraq.

The bottom line is that there is no civil war in Iraq and the majority of Iraqis themselves won’t buy it. Despite phony denials from the Bush Regime, the divide and conquer partitioning Iraq has been the U.S. plan from the beginning in order to help impose U.S. dictatorship and steal Iraq’s oil, while they threaten the entire Mideast and the entire world to bow down and be subjugated by U.S. imperialism. Partitioning of Iraq was formally broached by Peter Galbraith, former Ambassador of Croatia, where he helped partition and divide up the former Workers’ State of Yugoslavia! Preparatory steps to partition of Iraq included the installation of a puppet regime controlled by Shiites through phony staged sham “elections,” where only U.S. capitalist-approved candidates could seriously run, just like in the United States! The new Iraqi “Constitution” was also a total fraud written in order to set the basis for division of Iraq and a hoped-for civil war. No government installed under the aegis of the U.S. invaders, including any U.S.-installed, supposed “national unity government,” can represent the interests of the Iraqi masses. In Vietnam 87% of the South Vietnam VOTED in elections staged to install a U.S. puppet regime—a higher percentage of the population than in the Iraq “elections,” but the vote numbers do not change the fact that the regime in South Vietnam was a U.S. puppet regime and that the present regime in Iraq is also a U.S. puppet regime. It is a compelling fact that the Iraq under the dictator Saddam Hussein and the Baath Socialist Party modeled somewhat after the Soviet Communist Party provided full employment, no homelessness, free education to the highest level and free medical and dental care and had the highest living standard in the entire Mideast, including Israel, up until the Iraq-Iran War of 1980-1988, which was also instigated by the United States! See below. In addition to the purpose of diverting focus away from the U.S. invasion, the capitalists believe that either a civil war or “Partition of Iraq to prevent civil war” would also be very helpful because it would not decrease oil production any more than it already is and would permit the U.S. to move their forces mostly into the Iraqi oil regions which they think would then permit an increase in oil production! But everything the U.S. does turns to failure and a fiasco!

The Shiite-controlled U.S.-puppet regime has been given the green light to torture and kill Sunni Muslims on a regular basis in order to try to foment further division, while the U.S. at every opportunity falsely disassociates itself at the top of its lungs from its divide and conquer objectives in Iraq and the puppet regime it has installed, by falsely claiming that “the U.S. would not support sectarian policies,” which has been their actual goal from before the invasion! On February 22nd the U.S. agent Zarqawi directed his group of manipulated Sunni fundamentalists dressed in military uniforms to blow up the Askariya golden-domed Shiite Mosque in Samarra, an act which was deliberately designed to invite widespread retaliation and bring Sunni-Shiite division to a feverish peak. (The U.S. claim that they do not want civil war in Iraq—which the Iraqis reject—is like Brer Rabbit pleading with Brer Bear not to throw him in the briar patch!) The U.S. wants to instigate civil war in Iraq in order to divert the hostility of the invaded country away from the U.S. invaders and let the Sunnis, Shiites and Kurds fight among each other and wear each other out, just like what happened when the United States previously instigated the Iran-Iraq War of 1980-1988!! (The U.S. got their Khomeini-installed Islamic fundamentalist/anti-Communist government to violate the Iraq border 175 times before the Iraqis finally declared war and the U.S supported both sides of that war!) The United States brought back Khomeini from Paris and installed him in power in order to counterpose Islamic Fundamentalism against the Marxist-Leninist People’s Fedeyeen and the National Liberation Movement in Iran when it looked like Iran might possibly become a Workers’ State after the overthrow of the Shah in 1979 and might ally with the Soviet Union, with all that oil! Not if the capitalists could help it! Ramsey Clark, now posturing as “some sort of leftist opposition,” which he most certainly is not, who now demands Bush’s impeachment in order to keep people within the fold of capitalist reformist illusion and to try to pump up his credibility (see below), carried out the Shuttle diplomacy at that time to bring Khomeini back from France. At the time Khoumeini was paraded as an “intransigent revolutionary” by the fake “left” Workers World, led by the U.S. government’s chief not-very-deep-cover political police agent, Ramsey Clark himself, in order to hide the U.S. anti-Communist objectives behind that move.

The Truth of the Zawahiri Letter

It was previously admitted on December 16, 2005 by CNN and elsewhere that the U.S.-puppet Iraqi “security forces” had captured Zarqawi last year and released him. The reality is more likely that Zarqawi was actually captured by mistake and released on purpose by the U.S. puppet Iraqi military on direct orders from its U.S. masters!! In order to hide the fact that he was working for the U.S. invaders and simultaneously to help falsely portray the Iraqi Liberation Movement as a bunch of “terrorists,” Zarqawi pledged allegiance to Osama Bin Laden, who said in a tape on Al-Jazeera that he recognized Zarqawi as the Al Qaeda representative in Iraq, CNN, December 27, 2004! Later Osama Bin Laden and Ayman al-Zawahiri, Bin Laden’s doctor and second in command, apparently tried to halt Zarqawi’s attacks on Shiite Mosques with a long letter apparently written by al-Zawahiri on July 9, 2005, laying out plans for Jihad, but directly condemning Zarqawi’s attacks on the Shia and their Mosques and warning that such a policy would undermine popular support for Jihad. That letter, which U.S. “intelligence” supposedly intercepted and released, sounds completely authentic and makes perfect sense from the Jihadists’ point of view. But on October 13, 2005 the letter was declared to be a forgery by Zarqawi, who continued willy-nilly to bomb Shiite Mosques under orders from his U.S. masters, even escalating the policy to include the Askariya Mosque in the recent U.S. push to instigate civil war!

The Zawahiri Letter does not appear to be fabricated (see: http://www.dni.gov/letter_in_english.pdf —some piece of work if were fabricated, which appears unlikely), or it is entirely legitimate, which is more likely, and was released by the U.S. in order to falsely justify the U.S. presence in Iraq and the phony U.S. “War on Terrorism” by falsely hyping the threat from Jihad in Iraq, where Jihadists remain in the minority, and to act as the pretext for the present shift into the final stage of capitalism—Permanent War. In fact that is exactly how the U.S. Director of National Security and the capitalist media played it (See: http://www.dni.gov/release_letter_101105.html), while simultaneously allowing their agent Zarqawi to denounce the correct advice in the letter to stop bombing Shiite Mosques, as supposedly “fraudulent,” thus permitting Zarqawi to falsely disassociate himself from his U.S. masters and strengthening his hand while escalating the bombing/provocations! The reason that the United States deliberately did not report the specifics of how they intercepted the letter in this case was a tactic used in order to strengthen Zarqawi’s false claim among his constituents that the letter was supposedly fabricated by U.S. “intelligence.” Remember how eager the U.S. was to report all the specifics of how they captured Saddam Hussein! It is indisputable that Zarqawi’s actions clearly defined him at the very minimum as an objective agent of U.S. imperialism. Undoubtedly Zarqawi was much more than simply an objective agent of the U.S.! Up to now he was crucial to U.S. objectives in Iraq and would have to have been fully in full confidence on virtually every detail.

Despite the U.S./Zarqawi strategy of provocation the majority of Iraqis have not swallowed the bait and are not accepting the U.S. planned civil war scenario, despite the stepped up systematic atrocities carried out by Zarqawi, and the retaliatory slaughters carried out by the Madi Army and other Shiite militias which will not stop after Zarqawi’s assassination! The Iraqi masses smell a rat and are not eager to play into the hands of the United States clumsy divide and conquer plans. The condemnation of the attacks on February 25th by religious leaders simply reflects this awareness and reality as much as it may have been to hide their part in it. The Iraqi Liberation Movement, the main opposition to the U.S. invaders, targets the U.S. invaders almost exclusively and sees through Zarqawi and the U.S. objective to partition Iraq and they do not support a civil war! Even the cleric Moktada al-Sadr does not seem ready to commit to a civil war immediately in the conventional sense despite the fact that his followers the Madi Army, supposedly numbering several thousand fighters, who to their credit previously fought in 2 uprisings against the U.S. invaders, have recently been manipulated into attacking Sunnis in response to U.S. agent Zarqawi’s campaign of bombing Shiite Mosques. Their attacks on Sunnis have increased following the bombing of the Askariya Mosque by the U.S. agent Zarqawi and Co. Moktada al-Sadr may believe that he could play a leadership role in a divided Iraq based on the strength of his militia, which has already infiltrated the Iraqi police and military, but the reality is that he would still wind up where he is now—on his knees to his U.S. masters.

In order to try to pump up the credibility of their agent provocateur Zarqawi among his constituency of brainwashed Islamic fundamentalists, after the totally discrediting bombing of the Askariya golden-domed Shiite Mosque in Samarra, the U.S. dishonestly released a video made in November 2005, which his U.S. masters had received earlier but had been saving to release, showing Al Qaeda’s second in command Zawahiri still praising Zarqawi apparently in the vain hope that he might yet still have some influence on Zarqawi in line with the recommendations made in the Zawahiri letter. This was before Zarqawi and his Islamic fundamentalist fanatics/manipulees blew up the Askariya mosque which as mentioned above, was carried out in order to elicit escalated retaliatory killing of Sunnis by Shiite militias, all designed to help set the stage for the long-planned U.S. goal of partition of Iraq! Divide and Conquer! In another apparently weird attempt to simultaneously pump up Zarqawi among his tiny devoted brainwashed Sunni fundamentalist constituency, while falsely disassociating themselves from their agent provocateur as supposedly “a bumbling idiot,” the U.S. evidently had Zarqawi make a videotape which was then played repeatedly all over the Mideast media where Zarqawi fires a machine gun and appears to look very macho. But on “closer examination” several days later on outtakes from the preparation of that video, outtakes that the U.S. claims were captured but which they could only realistically possess if they were the ones to commission the making of that promotional film (a specialty of the capitalists) in the first place, it was revealed that Zarqawi did not even know how to fire and clear the chamber of a 50-caliber machine gun himself and that he wears U.S. New Balance athletic shoes—which may have been provided to him by his U.S. masters. (New York Times, May 5, 2006.) The reason for the outtakes became completely clear with Zarqawi’s assassination on June 8, 2006. (See above.)

So far the U.S. efforts in ethnic cleansing of Sunni areas in order to set the basis for a de facto partition of Iraq, have resulted in the displacement of over 60,000 Shiites by April 2006 from Sunni areas who now live in tents. The U.S. helped engineer the very same ethnic cleansing in the former Yugoslavia and have tried to blame people such as the Serbians Slobodan Milosevic and Milan Babic for this divide and conquer policy. The U.S. had both Milosevic and Babic poisoned in The Hague after Milosevic won his case at the International War Criminals Trial at The Hague. The U.S. now demands that Serbia turn over Ratko Mladic for “trial” to be likewise assassinated, who the imperialists want to take the rap alone for the 1995 Srebrenica massacre, one massacre among many which was a result of implementation of the United States’ ruthless plan to divide and conquer Yugoslavia, a country where people of all ethnic and religious backgrounds previously lived in peace and complete harmony! This ethnic cleansing is exactly what is happening in Iraq at this moment! The capitalists’ most recent divide and conquer efforts have resulted on May 22, 2006 in the division of Montenegro from Serbia thereby punishing the Serbian people and permanently cutting it off from the sea! The U.S. had already installed a puppet government in place in Serbia to facilitate this final divide and conquer of Yugoslavia.

While some U.S.-controlled Iraqi print media scream for civil war, Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, who has a strong influence on Iraqi Shiites also correctly fingered the United States in the Askariya Mosque bombing, but incorrectly also blamed the Israeli Zionists. (The U.S. does not need much direct help from Israel in Iraq! But in Lebanon recently the U.S. did authorize the Zionists to blow up and assassinate the politically expendable Rafik Hariri! See detailed explanation below under subhead!) The majority of the population in Iraq knows that the only player which actually benefits from a civil war in Iraq is the United States. Divide and conquer is a well-known policy of capitalist statecraft and is also used within the United States and around the world, as is explained further below. On the other hand the Muhammad Cartoon Provocation, which is analyzed extensively further below (see subhead on this topic below), was also designed to elicit anger and a violent response from Islamic fundamentalist everywhere, which in turn provides the continuing pretext for the capitalists’ policy of Permanent War. During this whole time conspiracy theorists have continued to insist that either Zarqawi or Bin Laden or both were dead or make other bizarre claims, in order to keep their followers confused and unable to even follow what is going on! Now they can have their way on Zarqawi while they cover up the role he played. See section further below on conspiracy theory. A large section on the Middle East, the U.S. Proxy State (so-called “Israel”) in what is Invaded and Occupied Palestine, which also covers the details and purpose of both the U.S./Israeli “Queen Sacrifice” assassination of Rabin and assassination of Lebanon’s Rafik Hariri, follows toward the end of this Analysis and Theses.

The only correct political position for all progressive opposition to the U.S. Invasion of Iraq must be: Support the only position with successful historical precedent: Call for Mutiny of U.S. armed Forces in Iraq as in Vietnam—the real reason and the only reason that the Vietnam War finally ended in 1975. The slogan “Bring Home The Troops” is a double-edged pacifist deception carefully designed 1.) To demoralize the masses when they see that the capitalists do not “bring home the troops” after protest demonstrations and venting which does not propose a realistic solution and leads nowhere and 2.) To deliberately deceive the masses to believe that capitalism, which is fundamentally dependent on war and mass murder to steal new resources and markets, can somehow be “reformed” and made “peaceful.” That is not happening because it ignores the dynamic and the history of capitalism. The “Bring Home The Troops” slogan appears even more absurd as capitalism has now entered its final stage of Permanent War! Permanent War is actually the most ideal Pre-Revolutionary situation possible because the likelihood of mutiny is maximally increased, and cries out for mutiny. The capitalists cannot reverse from the stage of Permanent War. But we cannot wait 13 or 14 years before there is a mutiny as in Vietnam, which was quickly quelled by the U.S. evacuation. Mutiny must be called for by all revolutionaries in the United States and carried out by developing Communist soldiers in Iraq. (A Communist is anyone who wants a new system based on human need not private profit and actively works to further this objective.) It is well known that the morale in the U.S. armed forces is very “bad.” Bad for the capitalists! Good for us! So do not adopt an opportunist position or be fooled or scared by the U.S imperialists bravado or threats of listening to phone conversations or monitoring your bank records. The release of such information in the capitalist media is purely for purposes of intimidation of the U.S. domestic population, which overwhelmingly opposes the policies of the capitalist dictatorship, which they recognize is hardening by the day. The phony “protest” by the capitalist dictatorship at the exposure of these domestic spying programs by the main flagships of U.S. imperialism, New York Times, Los Angeles Times and Wall Street Journal is done precisely in order to falsely disassociate the media which is doing the bidding of its master, to make the media appear “free” and “independent,” when in fact the information is released for one purpose only—to intimidate people—to scare, divide and more easily control the masses.

There is no substitute for a mutiny, which is the Pre-Condition for a Socialist Revolution, because the capitalists must be deprived of the ability to send bodies of armed men against the masses before opposing viewpoints can even be heard on an equal basis. All levels of military leadership should be targeted to support the mutiny because survival of the human race is in everyone’s interest! In the armed forces only Fascist militarist zombies are unable to realize that. All wars are either won or lost on moral and every movement begins with the call! The experience of the U.S. Mutiny in Vietnam must be widely publicized—not covered up as is done by all of the fake “left,” which is run by a network of political police agents led by fanatical anti-Communists such as Ramsey Clark and other misleaders of the fake “left.” With the Mutiny an accomplished fact and as the military comes under the control of the Socialist Revolution it will be supplemented with the armed vanguard of the exploited and working people. In addition, we have to make every effort to break the morale of the capitalists themselves. This is both possible and necessary and occurred to some extent in Russia in 1917 and it must occur to an even wider degree in the United States. The basis for this is the Law of Unity of Opposites—a person can be both a capitalist and a Communist simultaneously. This is a corollary of Dialectical and Historical Materialism which is covered up by the all of the fake “left” groups. Friedrich Engels himself was a capitalist and owned a large factory! Every possible effort must be made to recruit the capitalists themselves to break their class loyalty! The huge philanthropic effort made by Bill Gates and Warren Buffet can not go very far toward achieving their imagined illusory objectives because it is opposed by programs already in place and policies of the United States government which are based fundamentally on mass murder and designed to spread disease and reduce the population. The one possible exception might be a vaccine for malaria because the capitalists want to develop Africa. See below.

The United States Now Threatens to Bomb Iran!

In an article in The New Yorker magazine, April 17, 2006, Seymour Hersh, a longtime U.S. intelligence agent, was provided with the information to make the case for bombing Iran. The capitalists have used Hersh in previous situations. Among his many disservices to humanity Hersh previously wrote a book in service of the Fascist Reagan regime entitled: “The Target is Destroyed” in order to systematically cover up the U.S.-orchestrated Korean Airliner (KAL) Provocation which was used to undermine Soviet opposition to the placement of U.S. Pershing II First Strike missiles in Germany less than 15 minutes from Moscow, a move which did in fact result in the 1988 Soviet surrender to the threat of a nuclear war—not an “economic collapse.” In that provocation an altitude bomb (described by the Soviet pilot Gennadi Osipovich as “a large secondary explosion which destroyed the aircraft as it descended”) was placed in the Korean 747 airliner to insure that even if the USSR did not shoot it down, which it did, the U.S. could claim the plane was shot down. The Korean pilot was directed to fly straight into the Soviet Union over the Kamchatka peninsula and was personally assured by the disgraced murderer Richard Nixon who was at the airport in Anchorage, Alaska before it took off, that the Soviets would not shoot down the plane because they would not risk the bad publicity! The official story was that Nixon “almost took the flight!” So disingenuous! See further below.

The New Yorker article by Seymour Hersh on the other hand actually makes the strongest possible U.S. case to bomb Iran citing all the fanatics in the CIA and Israel as well as those who argue that it would be a big mistake. While some believe that the article is merely a threat, the dynamic of capitalism, which is in its final stage of Permanent War, and which is independent of the wills of the capitalists and politicians which make it up, makes such a military strike targeting “at least 400 targets” in Iran including the possible use of “tactical nuclear bunker-buster weapons such as the B61-11,” very likely, unless Iran backs down and submits. While there is no direct proof of a nuclear weapons program in Iran the Iranians realize that only by becoming a nuclear state can they defend themselves against the U.S. This is also the reason why North Korea is unlikely to agree to ever give up its nuclear weapons program, because to do so might invite U.S. bombing. The U.S. does not threaten countries which possess nuclear weapons. If Saddam Hussein had actually had actually been able to develop nuclear weapons, which the U.S. knew very well that Iraq had not, the U.S. would never have invaded Iraq. Both India and Pakistan possess nuclear weapons and the U.S. does not bother either country and forms alliances with them. The only way to permanently end nuclear weapons worldwide and the threat of a nuclear war is by carrying out a Socialist Revolution in the United States thereby permanently ending the system of capitalist-imperialism, which is fundamentally based on war, subjugation and mass murder in order to steal new resources and new markets. Only on this basis will the world have a genuine basis to completely and permanently disarm!

I just turned on the news, and what you are pointing out in this post is playing out on the national stage. I am amazed at how in touch you are with what is REALLY going on in this country, and you have been ahead of the curve on this. I can't believe my ears! The right cannot be allowed to get away with this!
I have recently been reading up on what George Orwell wrote, and the more I read, the more my mind tries to grasp how our world could not take heed of his advice and forwarnings. I mention him because I find your works on this blog to be as insightful as what he had been writing, and not just on the level of what "truth" is always defined as by the powers that be. He, too, was concerned about Nationalism and how it can warp peoples' minds to the point that they can simultaneously hold diametrically opposing ideas without realizing it. He felt compelled to write because he wanted to portray Visual Reminders, by using the language of literature, to affect people in a way that journalism and essays could not achieve.
All this lead me to consider what the effects of think tanks have been on the politics of today, and especially on the abuse of the word "freedom" by the conservative right. Perhaps Karl Rove is a devotee of Orwell, because he above all has grasped the power of words and propoganda that Orwell warned about. If we want to prevent Roveworld from becoming fixed, I am convinced that we must follow track that you are on with not only this article but all the others on this blog - gathering historical perspectives together with searching out the idealogical basis for the rhetoric that the right wing noise machine repeats over and over again as a means to counter-argue that rhetoric without letting thier characterizasions of the left as "whimpy, treacherous liberals." Thus, we must remain reasoned rather than shrill, and based in true historical fact, rather than allowing the re-written history they would like to porttray take hold.
Keep up the great work!
