Problems of Empire

•, by Justin Raimondo

"We’re within an inch of war almost every day," said Leon Panetta at a recent congressional hearing: he was talking about war with North Korea, but then went on to speak about other regions where the threat of conflict keeps him up at night, naming Iran, Syria, and indeed the entire Middle East as the source of his insomnia.

Which raises the question: what are we gaining from all this? What benefits do we derive from our troop presence in South Korea, and our interference in its internal affairs? What are we getting out of provoking Iran beyond the limits of human endurance? Why are we even thinking about intervening in Syria, when we can see the horrendous results of our support for the Libyan rebels – and the Iraqi exile groups who tricked us into supporting a disastrous invasion and occupation?

 Get educated to know what the United States of America is to the world.  You will know ALL the answers to your questions of ignorance.  There is no such thing as "U.S. Empire" ... only a figment of the imagination of those afraid of the monster under their bed -- the so-called World Order. It's like kids afraid of their Pizza Order a shrunken head might be delivered instead of Pizza.
