We here at TDB like to be first at pointing shit out, but in this never ending 24-7 news clusterfuck of a media environment we all live in, even we can slip up and miss something that should get more focus, so from time to time we’ll run Under the Radar News, things of note that escaped attention.
This week, War Crime Walrus John Bolton, Military Industrial Complex Greed & Saudi Arabian butcher fist bumps
War Crime Walrus John Bolton:
So I was watching CNN live and during an interview between Jack Tapper and Neocon Nazgûl John Bolton, Bolton bewilderingly says this…
Tapper: “One doesn’t have to be brilliant to attempt a coup.”
Bolton: “I disagree with that. As somebody who has helped plan coups d’etat — not here, but, you know, other places — it takes a lot of work. And that’s not what he did. It was just stumbling around from one idea to another. “
…I immediately tweeted…
…yes, I’m that tragic, I watch CNN live and then tweet about it.
@ me already bitches!
I actually have 4 live news streams going at once, so CNN live watching is the least of my news geek sins.
ANYWAY. The jaw dropping acknowledgment by Bolton live on TV that he has planned coups as some sort of ghoulish self promotion of his knowledge of the arcane dark arts is as gasp inducing as his resentment that Trump might be compared in the same league as him.
I mean there’s intellectual arrogance and then there’s accidentally showing us how fucking evil you are.
So what coups could Bolton have been involved in? Journalists went immediately to research and it turns out his position over various Administrations includes Venezuela, Iraq and Afghanistan not to mention the hundreds of other coups America is thought to be linked with.
This is why it is so difficult to take America seriously when it preaches Democracy and the rule of law, an architect of political violence for political gain like Bolton can proudly admit live on TV his role in staging coups and everyone else is too busy to notice.
Military Industrial Complex Greed:
U.S. to send 15th military package to Ukraine, bringing total aid in Russia war to $7 billion
Biden is set to announce a new security assistance package worth $400 million for Ukraine on Friday.The latest aid package, which is the 15th such installment, brings the U.S. commitment to more than $7 billion since Russia’s late February invasion of Ukraine.
In May, Biden requested $33b to give to Raytheon and the CIA “for the war in Ukraine.” Congress, on a bipartisan basis, arbitrarily increased it by $7b to $40b. This month, Biden requested $803b for 2023 military spending. Congress arbitrarily increased it by $37b, to $840b.
And look at how that plays out donation wise…
…America is a Fascist Corporate Military Industrial Complex that sells war to the planet and they will prolong the torture of the Ukraine if but keeps the weapon sales running while weakening Russia.
Saudi Arabian butcher fist bumps:
Biden has been desperate to get Saudi Arabia to stop buying Russian oil WHILE increasing output because the midterms will be decided by American privilege at the gas pump. The Military Industrial Complex has subsidised the real cost of petrol to Americans as their fetish for independence and freedom has been manipulated into endless motorways and huge cars. The ability to drive suburban armoured SUVs on heavily subsidised petrol props up authoritarian medieval regimes in the Middle East so when Americans hurt at the pump, the Leader of the Free World has to go rub shoulders with blood splattered butchers.
This time it’s one who put a Journalist through a bone saw.
Biden needs cheap petrol going into the midterms, the Saudi’s have to pretend to care while using the moment to whitewash their Saudi Crown Prince Butcher.
Petrol prices were easing slightly in America but this was driven by falling demand because people can’t afford to buy petrol, this fist bump might lower prices in the short term but once Russia starts cutting gas and petrol supplies in retaliation for a lack of gains in the Ukraine, that fist bump won’t mean anything, especially if a new wave of Covid slows the economy again.
The other parti of Biden’s trip which should concern people, is his signing of a joint declaration with Israel to use “all elements of national power” available to it to deny Iran the ability to arm itself with nuclear weapons.
This is to calm Israeli fears of Iran testing a nuclear weapon and changing the strategic dynamics of the entire Middle East.
It is a green light to Israel to bomb Iran if they think Iran is about to cross the threshold.
The American Fascist Corporate Military Industrial Complex is already licking its lips beyond the Ukraine.
