Editorial, "The American Deep State Is Leading Us" in Vol. 16, Part 1, No. 1, 15 January 2020 issue


to a collective ruin, if not to total extinction, it seems to us watching the aggressive actions by it through whoever be its puppet president at the helm. Only now it happens to be President Trump who had won the people’s hearts by his caustic criticism of the Middle East wars and solemn promises to pull the country out of wars and make it Great Again through innovative policies/measures. So was Bush who used the 9/11 false flag operation for his venture into an ‘international war on terror’ and devastated Afghanistan and Iraq, and so did Obama, who grotesquely extended the wars to more countries, causing the utter ruin of Libya and the gory murder of Qaddafi, as also contributed to the creation of the ISIS, the cruelest religious fanatic terrorist state in Iraq and Syria. It is now revealed that several US presidents lied to the people to draw them into various wars – Truman and Roosevelt leading them into two world wars. Well informed/conscientious intellectuals/veterans disclose that all this is the work of a neo-conservative deep state, the evolution of which was forewarned by the U.S. President, General Dwight Eisenhower way back in January 1961: “In the councils of government, we must guard against the acquisition of unwarranted influence, whether sought or unsought, by the military-industrial complex. The potential for the disastrous rise of misplaced power exists and will persist.” Dancing to the tunes of such a CIA-Mossad driven deep state, Trump ordered the assassination of the Iranian Major-General Soleimani, a very popular fighter-genius who planned and achieved the near-total destruction of the dreaded ISIS, trapping him by asking the Iraqi PM to invite him to peace talks. That the Iraqi PM was incensed, got a resolution passed in their Assembly to expel all foreign troops and asked the US to withdraw was of no use as ‘vote what you want, we’ll not go’ is the stubborn U.S. reply. Only the statesmanly conduct of Russia/China, the restrained retaliation of Iran, have averted a catastrophic war for the present. But, unless these greedy imperialists with their ‘destructive self-deception’ of American indispensability, are put down by the powerful voices and actions of billions of peace loving people all over the world, perhaps as Paul Edwards apprehends, it is “not impossible that the murder of Soleimani could result in a disaster of greater magnitude than did that of the Archduke Ferdinand, and that we may, in the days ahead, suffer our own 1914 and its dreadful aftermath.” §§§
