It won’t matter how you analyze it, the wars in which the US are involved will expand at all costs. What follows is merely my own reasoning, so feel free to jump in and share your thoughts.
I hate war. Not a single war in the history of the US was justified. All of it was highly partisan hatred over things which just did not matter, needless provocations with an eye to private profit by one party or another. Always it was some large number of people killed, and massive quantities of property destroyed, because someone wanted a bigger cut of the pie. It’s like the thief willing to cost you thousands, and even take your life, for a short-term gain of less than $100. Not a single one of the proclaimed causes was genuine. I write that as someone who has been certified to teach history, if credentials matter to you.
As a degreed theologian who has been through the full breadth of what man has believed and now believes under the various stripes of Christian religion, I can assure you that war can be justified under certain narrow contexts. But so seldom has anyone in charge cared, we can count on our fingers the justified wars in recorded human history. We can also rest assured from God’s own mouth that wars will gradually increase until the end of history. It is something in fallen human nature itself that once any grouping of humanity embarks on the course of war for expansion of power, influence and/or resources, they will never consider withdrawing while they live.
This is the one fundamental fact of our existence here in the US: The current military adventures will not decrease so long as the current government exists. All the peace activism, all the political movements and any human effort, in any combination, on any scale, will not stop this. Should a genuine peace candidate make a credible run for president, he’ll be dead before he’s sworn into office. A genuine national uprising would not change it. Kill everyone in office, but as long as the current system exists, the wars will continue and expand. This is fact, not hyperbole. The people in office are not the reason for the wars; there is a very real and unresponsive shadow government behind them which is responsible while totally unaccountable. It won’t much matter how you envision them, because you’ll never be able to touch them, never be able to affect the course of their plans.
We can tell a few things about them and their plan, though. They are totally unconcerned about the country going broke, going into default on the debts, or any other fiscal concerns. It’s fair to assume they control the currency and debt in the first place. The US is a special case in their plans, not like Greece, Portugal or other nations nearing default. Since there is no other source of military power available to them in the near future, you can be sure they are determined to continue using the US for war. These folks are intelligent, and they are working all the angles at once.
I doubt it matters to them whether they use delusion and manipulation or direct force to keep us on the task they have chosen for us. We should expect some of both. So long as it is physically possible at all, the US will be used for war. Consider what life is like in Gaza — our future won’t be that pleasant if we resist. They would be willing to decimate the entire population before they surrender control. We can be easily replaced by any number of populations who would gladly come here.
The likelihood of genuine wide spread resistance is really quite small. Given what you can easily see of our “culture,” you can understand my skepticism. We are a nation of spoiled brats and whiners. Take away almost everything else, but as long as there is something to stuff in our mouths and something on the TV screen, we’ll go along. For most people, the Internet is merely an alternate form of TV, and it will become more so. Our conditioning has really taken hold, in part because there is no legacy which gives us an old and solid identity. Our founding fathers were mostly rejects from their own homelands, so what little we might have had was quickly and easily forgotten. Our only national identity is our superior war making ability, matched by our arrogance and thorough materialism and hedonism. Everything else is fake. This is how we were shaped intentionally.
We are reaching a crisis stage, though it is largely artificial. Whatever happens will be very messy, but the underlying trend will not change. Our course is carved into stone. The population is highly fractured politically, but I estimate the most reliable voting block for TPTB is the Christian Right. This has been wholly hijacked by the Neocons. The nascent Tea Party was also hijacked and defanged. Token resistance is permitted, but will not accomplish anything of substance. I currently estimate Obama has run his course, and will be replaced by a Republican. While the Democrats have silenced the antiwar Left, there simply is not a big enough coherent voting block behind him any more. When Libya, Syria and Iran become a Right Wing war, the antiwar left will become the token dissent. I’m guessing there may be some event which will further discredit the Democrats to keep them from pressing signature Progressive causes with any real effect for awhile. I sense a coming crushing PR defeat for the Greens, for example.
To some degree, there will be an effort to recreate a WW2 atmosphere in the US. It should be entertaining to look for parallels, since WW2 was also a total PsyOp, too. Getting involved in a war effort will be just about the only way to eat for a great many people. At the same time, our warfare will become increasingly technology oriented, and less reliant on so much direct manpower. Yes, we all know nothing replaces living, breathing tactical troops on the ground, but the people in charge of strategy are trying to forget that. As we produce more and better high technology arms, and as we put a deeper layer of machinery between the troops and the targets, it requires less and less concern over consciousness and conscience. It’s easier to destroy and kill without conscience when it feels just like your computer video games, an industry fully sponsored by TPTB. More and more of the combat personnel will not need maneuver conditioning and training.
There will surely be a false flag event soon. They’ve already tipped their hand; we’ll see another Pearl Harbor. What form it takes depends on too many factors I can’t guess. It may not even be anything we expect, but something which has the effect of dampening dissent for just awhile, something which stirs some measure of patriotic fervor. Because it will be somewhat muted compared to previous efforts, I keep wondering how the slavery angle will arise. Somehow there will be a mass compulsory service requirement instituted, because I don’t believe poverty and fear alone are sufficient to raise enough voluntary compliance.
While all of this is evil, and by God’s Laws you can justify resisting, I warn that it’s mostly futile. If you can escape, do so. Not every part of the country will be affected equally by all this, so look for places where there is little federal activity to change the status quo. For example, I honestly expect less change here in Oklahoma. If you can stand the weather, North Dakota is another good place to go, as the economy is booming. More direct resistance will almost surely get you hurt or killed. They’ll break all the rules. All these brilliant political insights and powerful logical analyses are a waste of energy; the rules simply don’t matter to them. And again, I’ve never believed political activism accomplishes much. Even more so when the mere act of organizing will invite infiltration and disruption you would find hard to imagine. The only thing which can stop this train is if a significant number become fully conscious and informed, and there is a genuine cultural shift, a radical change in thinking shared across a very large part of the population. That simply isn’t happening.
Aside from that, I believe God Himself has warned this coming oppression is our just due, His appointed wrath on America’s sins. I believe He says fleeing is allowed, but that active resistance is a sin. He won’t support it. The moral fabric has been torn already, and we are exposed until it heals. America’s death warrant has been signed and sealed in Eternity. As you surf the Net in the coming days, pay no attention to anyone or any presentation which seeks to rally resistance through any combination of information or incitement. Don’t swallow any offering of false hope. I have no idea when the train is going to wreck, but that’s the only stopping point on the tracks ahead.
Game over, dude. Enjoy the fireworks.
