America's Endless Wars to Rule the World

by Stephen Lendman (stephenlendman.org - Home - Stephen Lendman)

Diabolical US aims reflect destructive megalomania - defined by Merriam-Webster as "a delusional mental illness that is marked by feelings of personal omnipotence and grandeur."

Hitler was driven by what Nietzsche called an extraordinary "will to power."

Psychologist Henry A. Murray (1893 - 1988) said he was driven by hatred, rage, embitterment, arrogance, and hysterical megalomania, a real life Darth Vader. 

US bipartisan rage for controlling the world, its resources and populations resembles Nazi Germany's agenda - wrapped in the American flag, pretending its mission is noble, ignoring enormous harm inflicted on countless millions at home and abroad.

Like his predecessors, Trump was co-opted to serve the interests of dark forces running America - its privileged class exclusively at the expense of most others, and continuing the nation's longstanding permanent war agenda.

His actions speak for themselves - ruthless, reckless, and diabolical, risking unthinkable global war with nukes.

His subservience to Wall Street and other corporate predators, along with his three major policy documents define his agenda.

His National Defense Strategy (NDS) is a blueprint for global dominance, Defense Secretary Mattis saying "(g)reat power competition - not terrorism - is now the primary focus of US national security," - at a time when the nation's only threats are invented ones, no real ones.

Mattis called the NDS "a strategy…fit for our time…protect(ing) our way of life" - imposed by militarism, belligerence and permanent war on humanity at home and abroad, he failed to explain.

America's "way of life" may kill us all, representing unparalleled recklessness with nukes, catastrophic global war inevitable if US madness isn't challenged by the world community and stopped before we're doomed.

America's only enemies are invented ones, no real threats faced since WW II ended. No Sino/Russian adventurism exists, no threats from all nations US policymakers target for regime change. 

"We are going to build a more lethal force," Mattis roared, destructive US imperialism resembling Hitler's, driven by similar megalomaniacal aims, risking the same result on a global scale. Humanity's fate hangs in the balance.

Trump's National Security Strategy represents "a dramatic rethinking of American foreign policy from previous decades," according to National Security Advisor HR McMaster. 

It represents "a dramatic" reassertion of Washington's aim for global dominance, pressuring, bullying and bribing allies to go along.

Russia and China represent the final obstacles to achieve what's never been accomplished before, risking mass annihilation if this agenda continues to be pursued unchecked.

Trump's Nuclear Posture Review aims to enhance the nation's destructive capability, falsely claiming America must address an "unprecedented range and mix of threats" posed by Russia, China, North Korea, Iran and other countries.

No nations threaten US security. Its agenda threatens everyone. 

Saying "(t)he United States remains committed to its efforts in support of the ultimate global elimination of nuclear, biological, and chemical weapons" is belied by its militarism, belligerence, and permanent war policy - world peace and stability anathema notions it rejects.

Claiming "global threat conditions have worsened markedly" in recent years is a bald-faced lie - Washington and its rogue allies representing the only real threats.

Falsely saying Moscow's strategy lowers the threshold for first-strike nuclear weapons barely stops short of declaring war.

Washington's agenda is world's apart from most other nations wanting peace and stability, not endless destructive wars.

Humanity's greatest threat lies in Washington and capitals of its rogue allies - not in Moscow, Beijing, Tehran or Pyongyang.
