What I found today from the Global Research website, at www.globalresearch.ca, only reinforced my beliefs that the US is probably one of the worse despotic nations on the planet today (second only to Israel itself). This article, written by Stephen Lendman, is entitled: "Obama's New Military Strategy: Targeting Nations Which Challenge US Hegemony", and it paints a not too pretty picture of exactly what the United States stands for in the world today... I have that entire article right here, and I do have some of my own comments to follow:
Obama's New Military Strategy: Targeting Nations which Challenge US Hegemony
by Stephen Lendman
Global Research, January 7, 2012
"The nuclear issue and our other concerns can ultimately be resolved only if the Iranian regime makes the strategic decision to change these policies, open up its political system, and afford freedom to its people. This is the ultimate goal of US policy."
"All Members shall refrain in their international relations from the threat or use of force against the territorial integrity or political independence of any state, or in any other manner inconsistent with the Purposes of the United Nations."
NTS Notes: The way I have interpreted the term "Hegemony" as shown in this article, is to mean total domination.
What everyone needs to wake up to is the fact that the US is no longer a republic in any sense... It is now an EMPIRE that wants total hegemony over the entire planet... Any nation that stands in its way today is either destroyed by direct attack by the US military, or by the use of American clandestine forces such as the CIA to undermine and destroy such nation's sovereignty internally.
It is truly sad that the majority of the American public is not even aware about what their once proud nation has turned into. I wonder if the majority, if not so dumbed down by their media and the chemicals in their foods, water, and vaccines, would honestly put up with this type of insane doctrine?
The fact is that with the US economy teetering on the verge of full economic collapse, I do believe that it can no longer sustain its massive global empire. The result will be the American empire soon falling apart just like all of the other empires throughout history. That time is fast approaching....
