from The Sleuth Journal:
Well over 1,000 global bases in around two-thirds of the world’s nations aren’t enough for Pentagon commanders.
They’re exploiting the hyped threat of terrorism to say they want more. A feature December 10 NYT Times report headlined “As It Fights ISIS, Pentagon Seeks String of Bases Overseas.”
The Times ignored its bloated budget and current global empire of bases, used as launching pads for war, threatening world peace. Additional ones assure more conflicts, escalated current ones, and the horror of possible global war with nuclear weapons, humanity’s greatest threat.
The Times disgracefully supports Washington’s imperial agenda, its endless wars of aggression against invented enemies. America’s last ones were Nazi Germany and imperial Japan, none since.
Pentagon commanders lied, proposing new bases in Africa, Southwest and Central Asia, as well as the Middle East to combat ISIS – America’s ally, not enemy. The Times didn’t explain.
Instead, it claimed the bases will “be used for collecting intelligence and carrying out strikes against the terrorist group’s far-flung affiliates.”
Rubbish! They’ll be used as launching pads for endless wars, using ISIS and other terrorist groups as imperial foot soldiers, targeting independent governments Washington wants ousted, maintaining a state of fear to enlist public support for what demands condemnation.
On December 10, RT International cited Iraqi opposition political leader Hanan Fatlawi, saying Washington intends spearheading a 100,000 troop deployment to Western Iraq – comprised of 90,000 Saudi, Turkish, Egyptian, UAE, Qatari and Jordanian forces along with 10,000 US ones.
