  1. I think it is somewhat naive to talk of "bumbling disasters". What looks like a disaster through the lens of common sense is rather, I'm afraid, a fully intended consequence. The US did not "lose" in Afghanistan. The war, like the war in Vietnam, was almost entirely a CIA operation. In reality, "we" captured and held valuable drug turf. Enormous streams of illegal drug revenue was guaranteed by maintaining the farce that it was a war in the traditional.sense. This revenue fed ths beast, along with N. Korean amphetamine production, illegal arms sales and human trafficking. It is quite impossibls to understand the truth of "US policy" without abandoning traditional common sense and looking at the destructive behavior of the British Empire (of which, the present criminal establishment in the US is a direct heir)–and more specifically the British East India Company, whose psychotic campaign to inventory the world and sweep aside any challenge to its criminal might was empowered on an ideological level by social Darwinism. The situation in the Middle East must be interpreted not by the light of reason (in the sense of being life affirming) but by an unflinching examination of the global British crime syndicate–which is the most forward element in a much greater criminal network involving other more powerful European families. Through such an examination, the term "blowback" becomes utterly untenable except as recruitment propaganda. It attempts to ascribe an organic causal relationship where none exists except as convenient fiction which works to the advantage of oligarchy. All the terrorism mentioned here is quite emphatically inorganic and is even at times absolutely faked (Orlando). Terrorism is a tool of the elite and nothing more. It plays into the common person's need to make sense of a completely berserk intl system which is infintely more criminal than anything else. The dark players rely on decent, intelligent pundits like Hedges to only partially explain the melee we are witnessing. These partial explanations assuage our sense of helplessness but fall far short of any real understanding. The give-away here is that Hedges thinks there will (as of the date of tbis presentation) no real difference between Clinton and Trump. This view is naivete masquerading as world-weary sophistication. We have seen (though not on MSM) that Trump is a sharp and defiant departure from the "Criminal Empire" model that Clinton embodies. The Afghan war is being shut down not due to any military defeat, but due to Trump's declared war on illegal drugs, which he is winning. He is winning this war, as well as the war on human trafficking, illegal arms sales, etc.. If he keeps fighting and winning, we will see a global transformation–away from predatory social Darwinism and toward freedom and development.

  2. tHE ONLY THING I PERSONALLY DISAGREE WITH IT THIS IS A LONG TERM DESIGN BY ZIONIST IT IS NOT AN ACCIDENT AND BEFORE ZIONIST IS FINISHED SUCKING ALL THE BLOOD THEY HAVE HAD A FREE HAND TO DO THEY WILL MAKE SURE WE ARE IN A WAR TO COMPLETELY DESTROY AMERICA FOR INSURANCE AGAINST THE DUMB SLAVES EVER WAKE-UP TO WHAT THEY THE ZIONIST HAVE DONE TO US BUT WE WILL BE UNABLE TO FIGHT BACK =ZION WORLD ORDER

  3. Saudi Arabia spent billions of petrodollars and established thousands of Madrasas in Muslim countries, and USA supported the Islamic parties grown from those Madrasas since Soviet Union. All people of those Madrasas were openly supporting Al-Qaeda and are recently supporting ISIS.
    Saudi Wahhabis are historically not Muslims although they pretend to be savior of Islam.

  4. The saudi wahabism ws created by the British to hijacked islam like they hijacked Christian by zionism

  5. 4000 containers of weapons sent to Syria by the USA prolonging the war in Syria . So many facts are very hard to justify via the USA ….. citizens of America need to wake and take a stand the end of USA is in your hands stOp BEing controlled via the zi On iSt wake up

  6. And gee how correct Chris was, Trump won and he's no less a war chicken hawk than Hill would have been He beat her to dropping the 'Mother of All Bombs" should have dropped hill. And he's bombed a sovereign country's military air base we're not even at war with. The Military Industrial Corp. has nothing to worry about.

  7. I Muslim. I want to tell every body and every religions. A lots of Muslims don't likes so much Wahabi. Wahabi is not true Sunni Iislam.

  8. That's why we are trying to teach people that those fucking Wahhabis has nothing to do with Islam! They are just a tool for a huge bloody aims!
    To kill innocent Muslims! To kill Islam, to create wars, destruction and anarchy, so gun lobby in the West can sell the production easily and gain billions!1000 birds with one stone.
    Ben Laden Family+Bush Family business relationship can explain.
    More terror attack means more people fear more war support more gun selling, more 💵! This is the equation.
    The victims are always (innocent Muslims + innocent Westerners).

  9. Yes, Profits with NATO expansion. No, They do have a vision, but it's not a vision in any positive sense. But the necons and liberal interventionists are following Zbig's 'plan' of encircling Russia and China, with a view to destabilizing those countries and colonizing them, not directly of course, but in the manner that John Perkins has explained. Come on Chris!

  10. What does 'high security' mean to huge 'private' security orgs, who governments use (I know nothing about Turkey's airport security) when they are all about profits, and cost cutting therefore. I know about one. It's 'all' about cost cutting and profits. The marketing/advertizing of it's services will always sound super. So what?

  11. holy sh*t, what did they do here, get Chris on the webcam in his study at six in the morning before that first cup of coffee. not easy being such a busy man…

  12. Hedge's suggestion the US had anything to do with the overthrow of the Morsi government in Egypt is completely wrong. Quite the opposite in fact as the Obama administration and its ambassador protested Morsi's overthrow quite vigorously – their shock at Morsi's demise appears genuine suggesting Obama didn't see it coming! Al- Sisi acted after one of the biggest reported demonstrations in history in Cairo and within a heartbeat of Morsi turning Egypt into an Islamic state (run by the Muslim Brotherhood of course). The bumbling disaster of US foreign policy in the Egyptian context was supporting the Islamist supremacist Brotherhood to use the democratic process to take over the country in the first place.

  13. He leaves out the obvious US-backing and involvement and obscures the obvious.  I like Mr Hedges a lot, but there is a lot of uncited material being presented as fact, and this goes to the heart of the issue, so it is warranted.  Yes, you can say this led to that, but how did this lead to that?  And where is the supporting documentation?  I mean, I believe the US is using Saudi Arabia exactly as described, but to validate the blood-thirsty willingness to explode oneself for no ultimate effect is not natural or normal even as a response to terrorism.  The desire to get out of a death situation maybe, but then who is doing the recruiting?
    Like the so-called Orlando "ISIS".  I have stopped at about halfway through, because the US role should be more prominent.

  14. Libya would've been a failed state without any NATO involvement, even bother NATO became involved in the Libyan civil war the Libyan Rebel groups were already open,y stating that they would never enter peace talks. Gadaffi had lost control of most of Libya before there was any NATO involvement.

  15. The only effective way to wipe out ISIS terrorists is to Bomb all the Saudi Arabia's oil refineries and stop America from arming ISIS terrorists through arming Saudi Arabia. America created ISIS and other Wahhabi terrorist groups around the world by supporting and arming Saudi Arabia for many decades now.
