Sanctions and Strategy

Recommended Posts

Coupla good articles, one on the sanctions - details what they are and the potential blowback:

Quote

The ever-so-wise members of the Congress of the United States have just passed one of the most bizarre pieces of legislation in US history. Unilaterally, it makes illegal and severely punishable investments by European companies in international energy projects where Russia is involved. But it does far more. Unlike earlier US sanctions acts, the EU countries were not even consulted on the new act. It may well be that the bill, HR-3364: Countering Americas Adversaries Through Sanctions Act (sic) and its Senate counterpart will mark the irreversible decline of the United States as a global power and forge new ties between Russia, China, Iran and, yes, the major states of the EU including Germany.

And on the dangers and follies inherent in the general US strategy used since WWII of linearity (broad front advance), which makes it adherants (neocons, the Pentagon and Washington) blind to events which don't comply with it, which is why everything since 911 has been disastrous:

There are features of how the United States makes and executes foreign policy that help to explain why Washington is repeatedly thrown into confusion by unforeseen developments. Most significant is a certain linearity of thinking and action. It takes literally the proposition that since the shortest distance between two points is a straight line, the most efficient approach to getting from where we are now to where we want to go is to set our bearings accordingly. What lies between points A and B will yield to American know-how, ingenuity and force of will. That’s how we fought World War II in Europe. It was close to being a lock-step operation – especially after the Battle of the Bulge when Eisenhower ordered that the allied armies should proceed along an even front lest the Germans exploit geographical discontinuities. We tried to follow a linear battle plan in Vietnam (or as close to one as circumstances permitted) and paid the price for it. Even in Gulf War I, Schwarzkopf’s initial plan called for a “bull rush” to Kuwait City.

Our interventions in the Greater Middle East over the past 15 years exhibit similar patterns.

It occurs that this combination of diplomatic arrogance as illustrated in the sanctions and incompetent strategic leadership in executing military adventure is not only highly dangerous to the future of the Republic but also virtually incomprehensible in that the likely issues which may arise in future and the evident results already generated are obvious, nose on face stuff. Not rocket science, at all. And given the US has in its ranks some of the finest thinkers in all kinds of fields, where are they, on these matters, and why aren't they, en masse, furiously publishing article after article in ways the sheeple can't avoid seeing them, even if the MSM refuses to cover it. Why are, it appears, most of those thinkers virtually all asleep at the wheel, as you know who drives Uncle Sam into the ground?

The whole thing reeks of mind control.  Perhaps the cell towers.  The sanctions seem to be orders from high.  Same unified amongst a bitterly divided congress results as we saw with the implementation of digital TV.  Also suspect of mind control.   Our talent is spinning its' wheels.  Our representatives do not represent us.  We are an occupied nation.  Occupied with bread and circus.

The money is all gone. Maybe the people of the United States will stand when they realize the bread and circus train is coming to an end and the Germans are at the door.
