Nick Turse lays it on the line: It's a story that should take your breath away: The destabilization of what, in the Bush years, used to be called "the arc of instability." It involves about 97 countries, across the bulk of the global south, and much of it coinciding with the oil heartlands of our planet. A startling number of these nations, thanks to Obama, are now in turmoil, and in every single one of them, from Afghanistan and Algeria to Yemen and Zambia, Washington (read Obama) is militarily involved, overtly or covertly , in outright war, or for what passes for peace. Garrisoning the planet is just part of it. The Pentagon, which I visited with CIA man Steve Mayfield, before I trained in the Jungle Operations training center in Panama, and US intelligence services, are also running covert special forces and spy operations, launching drone attacks, building bases and secret prisons, training, arming, and funding local security forces, and engaging in a host of other militarized activities right up to full-scale war. But while you consider this, keep one fact in mind: the odds are that there is no longer a single nation in the "arc of instability" in which the United States is in no way militarily involved. Our so-called president claims "that freedom is on the march in the broader middle east". What he really means is that he has authorized our Pentagon, together with other NATO forces, to destroy any nation which refuses to sell us cheap oil, OR ELSE!! Resistance, my friend, is futile.
Adolf Hitler could not have said it better! Freedom, my ass. What we are now looking at is the military march of Gestapo boots across any country which denies our right to conquer!
