Government and Military Incompetence Galore

Should the United States Government and its Military be feeling a little incompetent these days?  You might recall that over ten years ago they went into Iraq and at first they seem to have a tremendous success.   They took the bulk of the country in a few short weeks.  That quick take over seemed impressive at the time.  Had the story ended there I would say we would have had something to be proud of.  However, it didn't because for ten years we had to keep tens of thousands of military personnel there.  This huge force was required to keep some semblance of control over things there.

News reports in August 2014 acknowledge that ISIS, a small rag tag army, was taking back territory in Iraq and Syria.  Later their numbers were said to be perhaps 10,000 strong and growing.  Those new reports also played down the rag tagged image to one that was more formidable.  Leaving all the hype aside what were these reports really saying?  They said that this small army equipped with brand new pickup trucks and 50 caliber machine guns have been able to do almost as much as what our army did within its first few weeks of operations.  That should be an embarrassment to both our government and our military.    

Blinded by our patriotic strength we might still be saying, what is incompetent about our performance?    Well we had to spend how many billions of dollars for the early success we had in Iraq?  We used a tremendous amount of air power, naval power and satellite imagery, ISIS however basically used pick up trucks and 50 caliber machine guns.

Actually the cost, that means expense for you and I, for the Iraq war has now reached into the trillions of dollars.  Yes it is in the trillions because we have to add in all the  casualty and medical expenses; which we will be paying for years to come.  Those costs also include payments to the mercenary army that we hired to help fight that conflict.  Perhaps your national pride is preventing you from being objective about what the truths really are.  Make no mistake I am not blaming our soldiers, I blame their leaders.

The press even has tried to put the best spin on what has happened.  Remember after the governmental blunder that said ISIS wasn't much of a threat, they started to report ISIS as a very well equipped army.   However their video images only showed ISIS soldiers with new pickup trucks equipped with machine guns in the back.  They showed them as having a vast amount of hand held weapons which include rocket launchers, but they didn't show them to have an Air Force, Tanks, or a Navy.  Still the reality is that they matched the effectiveness of our army.  Their shock and awe approach was more persuasive then ours.  Our shock and awe may have killed more people, but their tactic of cutting heads off seemed to strike more fear in their opponents.

To be fair, ISIS did acquired tanks when they were abandoned by the Iraqi army; as the Iraqi's fled their posts.     This is still another embarrassment, as our military spent a lot of time and money to train the Iraqi forces.   That training wasn't very effective was it?  If your face isn't red yet remember they equipped those Iraqi soldiers so now we can feel the shame of supplying weapons to ISIS; even if it was indirectly.   Now our government and military suppliers are not ashamed at all.  These two groups made tons of money, and gained enormous power to influence their futures even more; as far as they are concerned it’s “Mission Accomplished.”

But wait in October 2014 yet another embarrassment, remember all those stories about Hussein having chemical weapons.  We knew he had them because our government sold them to him; a shame in itself.  Some of those weapons were found but never destroyed by our military; that's right they left them there.  Our military leaders say they are old and dangerous so who in their right mind would try to use them?  Do you really think that suicide bombers are afraid of sorting old defective chemical canisters? How can anyone honestly justify, not destroying these weapons; especially knowing the history of the Middle East.  If we had been there in Iraq for only a short time one might think differently, but our military had over 10 years to destroy them and they didn't.  

Once again our government has pulled the wool over our eyes.  Perhaps this wool is our patriotic impulse to overlook the incompetence that existed here, because of our love for our country and pride in our military.  It is our mistake if we decide to forgive and forget this terribly stupid chain of events.  In the weeks and months ahead I am sure we are in for a few more stupid blunders by are government and military.  They can only hide things for so long.

Ultimately we are the stupid ones for allowing our government to work for the worldwide system of commerce and not for the majority of people here in the United States.  Our government makes no effort to hide the fact that they see themselves are World Leaders first and not as leaders for the United States Citizens first.  They have sold us out to the new world order of business leaders.  The worldwide banking system now has more control over our country than we; the common taxpayer.  The “two party political system” assures that they, these world leaders, remain in control.  Unfortunately there is a whole lot more corruption in these systems then I have time to report on, in this short article.  I whole lot more of incompetence for us to pay for, but then that is how this system makes money for those who are really in control of it.  


I reserve the right to revise and extend my remarks. 

CONSIDER THIS

“…………….For we are opposed around the world by a monolithic and ruthless conspiracy that relies primarily on covet means, for expanding its sphere of influence, on infiltration instead of invasion on subversion instead of elections on intimidation instead of free choice, on gorillas by night, instead of armies by day. Its is a system which has conscripted vast human and material resources into the building of a tightly knit highly efficient machine that combines Military, Diplomatic, Intelligence, Economic, Scientific and Political operations. Its preparations are concealed not published its mistakes are buried not headlined; its dissenters are silenced not praised. No expenditure is questioned no rumor is printed no secret is revealed………………....................................” "President Kennedy's speech to The Press" To watch see side bar under: Videos-Social Issues

ABOUT THE X-FILES section in the Table of Contents

Sometimes we hear seemingly outrageous and preposterous stories that we immediately disregard as not worth our time. Most of us pass right on by these stories and consider their entirety as useless. Should we toss them away without at least examining the bits and pieces for possible evidence? It may be that some of the elements within these stories might add to our understanding of the total picture or scheme of things. Remember the extent of the control of the Military Industrial Complex that both Presidents Eisenhower and Kennedy spoke of, because of this I would think it only prudent to at least listen to these stories. Some of these stories are being told by current and former employees of firms which have links to the Complex. If you have watched the movie “Money as Debt” your next question might be; what do “THEY” do with the fruits of our labor? These X-FILES might provide some of our answers if we can just dig them out of the distortions.

Why do I provide links to questionable sources?

At times you may find that I have posted links to questionable sites. Some of these might be considered to be enemies to the decent people of the United States and the world. For example, I may link to sites which express excessive communistic ideas. In all organizations there is in-fighting and this often exposes some truths. I link to them because at times they have some truths to offer that we need to see and hear. Communism may be the easiest political system for the characters in my short book "They Live We Sleep" to manipulate. It’s the easiest to pervert and control and because of this, THEY; those controlers, want to expand this system around the world. Communistic players, here at home, have made head ways into our government. THEY have installed a form of corporate communism and this has become their foot hold. These players have plans to destroy our Constitution. A constitution which gives us, we the people, rights through God not through some council of men. With all this being said I believe it is wise to know your enemy; this is why I sometimes provide links to them.
