Sham High-Mindedness of Former US Senators
by Stephen Lendman (stephenlendman.org - Home - Stephen Lendman)
Their collective op-ed remarks warrant sharp criticism, not support or praise. See below.
Rare exceptions aside, US executive, congressional, judicial, intelligence, and military officials represent pure evil. Their rage for unchallenged global dominance is humanity's greatest threat.
The US by far is the greatest human rights abuser in world history - doing more harm to more people over a longer duration than any other nation.
The scourge of Nazism lasted a dozen years. Stalinist Russia ended after three decades. Maoist rule in China lasted little longer.
US high crimes at home and abroad began before establishment of the republic. They're more ruthlessly dangerous on a global scale today than ever.
US policymakers justify the unjustifiable time and again. They threaten everyone everywhere - waging endless wars of aggression, wanting dominance over all other nations, serving privileged interests exclusively, eroding fundamental homeland freedoms.
They're heading America for full-blown tyranny - risking nuclear war on Russia, China, Iran, and perhaps other countries.
A chilling Eric Zuesse article should scare everyone, warning of long-planned US nuclear war on Russia, explaining the following:
"(C)onclusive evidence prov(es) that the (US) is actually designing its nuclear forces now with the intention to win a nuclear war against Russia (World War III)" - a lunatic scheme risking destruction of planet earth and all its life forms.
Humanity's survival may depend on challenging and stopping US imperial madness while there's time.
Zuesse presented a compelling argument that "(t)he US…is definitely set upon winning WW III…Nuclear weapons are thus being built and deployed…with the intention to conquer Russia, and this goal has become NATO's mission…its only remaining core function" - its monstrous killing machine serving US imperial interests, unrelated to defense.
In numerous articles, I and others warned of the risk of US launched nuclear war on Russia and perhaps other countries.
Along with serving privileged interests exclusively, notably corporate predators and high-net worth individuals, Washington prioritizes endless wars of aggression against invented enemies. No real ones or other threats to US security exist.
Claims otherwise are bald-faced lies. The neocon/CIA-connected Washington Post gave feature op-ed space to 44 former US Senators.
WaPo gave them a platform for shameless pretence and deceit, much like how they operated in office, how the vast majority of US officials betray ordinary people everywhere.
Citing "serious challenges to the rule of law, the Constitution, our governing institutions and our national security" ignored their contempt for governance the way it should be by all elected and appointed officials - never in the US from inception, clearly not now.
They shamefully expressed support for special council Robert Mueller's sham Russiagate witch hunt probe that never should have been authorized in the first place - accomplishing nothing but months of deceptive media reports and waste of tens of millions of dollars.
Saying "regional conflicts and global power confrontations continue to threaten our security, economy and geopolitical stability" ignored bipartisan responsibility for what's going on - endless US wars on humanity the senators supported in office instead of condemning them and demanding they end.
Democracy in America has been pure fantasy from inception, not the real thing as they falsely claimed. National security threats are invented to wage endless wars on humanity. No real ones exist, as they pretended.
"(T)he rule of law" is repeatedly mocked and breached, not observed. Governance is by Washington rules overriding all others.
Saying as senators they "took an oath, swearing allegiance to the Constitution" ignored how policies they supported flagrantly breached it repeatedly.
The "national interest" is all about dominating other nations by whatever it takes to rule the world, loot its resources, and control populations everywhere.
War on humanity at home and abroad is Washington's favored strategy, what the vast majority of past and present US officials support - including all or nearly all 44 senators endorsing the shameless remarks discussed above.
