Imperial America - The Downside
Washington, DC. Aug. 15th, 2005 ---- The Cheney/Rumsfeld/Wolfowitz/Bush Oil Barons have effectively, even brilliantly, secured the Oil Grab of all time. The totally faked crisis over Kuwait, and their Gulf War, together with the textbook invasion of Iraq to grab the essential oilfields, on lies swallowed by a gullible electorate has secured control of the worlds most valuable resource.
Imperial America now decides whose economy flourishes, and whose economy goes into crisis and recession, just as Imperial Britain did a century earlier. They ensure huge dollar windfalls to continue a lifestyle of excess.
There is one problem. America does not have sufficient volunteer military forces to maintain this global Empire, nor defend long term against irritated upstarts such as China and India. There needs to be a concerted effort to either get 50,000 to 100,000 new recruits, or introduce the Draft to police the new Empire.
The Anglo-Saxon NeoCons, Cheney, Rumsfeld, Bush 1, Bush 2, Wolfowitz, Bolton and the other architects of global dominance are all old men, all old white men.
The US electorate is becoming rapidly younger and Hispanic. The problem is that the US needs to hang on to this world Superpower dominance for the next ten to fifteen years, fighting off all challengers, in every corner of the world, as well as convincing the electorate to turn a blind eye to their activities.
When the Bilderbergs, Trilateral Commission and other white elitist groups operated far from public scrutiny manipulation was easy. But now the foundations of the world are changing, and so is the ability to communicate ideas and develop grass roots oversight. The realization that the US voters were fed a pack of lies, and have been for thirty years is slowly starting to percolate. Will it bring changes? Not according to the Old Men who run the world. They have staged wars, overthrown governments and murdered anyone who has stood in their way. But will the medium that gave them unparallel power to manipulate, television, be their undoing?
Television has been the domain of the rich and powerful. Backed and controlled by the same New York and London forces that control the events covered in their TV news. The convergence of television and the Internet poses a clear and present danger. We see the ability of every group to create their own Internet news service, we see sites getting millions of visitors every day. We see television and radio available over the Internet, and able to be produced by almost anyone with a low cost computer and camera.
The mighty British Empire was brought to it's knees in rural India by a slight peaceful man who stood up and faced the Military and Economic Superpower, and Gandhi realized it really was The Wizard of Oz. It only takes a groundswell of popular resentment, empowered by the new communication medium, to collapse the whole fabricated power play.
The Cheney/Wolfowitz/ENRON plan had it's basis in securing Oil for America. That is good forward planning. But instead of leveling with the American public they lied, cheated and grabbed power for themselves, and huge profits for their cronies. They opened the floodgates of Heroin production as payback, and ruined millions of lives around the third world. Will the new multicultural electorate forgive them, or dismantle their deeds.
Will they volunteer their sons and daughters to die to maintain the wealth of the few, at the expense of the millions. That is the question. There is a downside to Imperial America, and the population haven't been brainwashed into supporting the King or Queen, as they were a century earlier in Imperial Britain. The next five years will be interesting to say the least.
