Thinking a Loud-Puppets on a String

by Mahfuz Mundadu To know and not to know, to be conscious of the truthfulness while telling carefully constructed lies, to hold simultaneously two opinions which cancelled out, knowing them to be contradictory

 and believing in both of them, to use logic against logic, to repudiate morality while laying claims to it, to believe that democracy was impossible and that the party was the guardian of democracy, to forget, whatever it was necessary to forget, then to draw it back in to memory again at the moment when it was needed, and then promptly to forget it again, and above all, to apply the same process to the process itself… consciously to induce unconsciousness, and then, once again, to become unconscious of the act of hypnosis you had just performed

The power of holding two contradictory beliefs in one’s mind simultaneously, and accepting both of them….To tell deliberate lies while genuinely believing in them, to forget any fact that has become inconvenient and then, when it becomes necessary again, to draw it back from oblivion for just so long as it is needed, to deny the existence of objective reality and all the while to take account of the reality which one denies-all this is indispensably necessary. Even in using the word double think it is necessary to exercise double think. For by using the word one admits that one is tempering with reality; by fresh act of double think one erases this knowledge… with the lie always one leap ahead of the truth.” George Orwell

Forgive me for this very long quote. How else could I have best describe the United State’s foreign policy?

What started as a legitimate expression of grievances in Syria has been hijacked by Western imperialists in a robust and sturdy coalition with Zionism. It is gradually becoming crystal clear to all discerning minds, that what the imperialist West, as well as the Zionist Israel are really after in Syria, is neither a rule of law nor a democratic transition. They are desperately on a mission to place a puppet on a string for him to do their bidding.

At present the United State is having over 150 military bases scattered across the world. The primary aim of this militarization of international diplomacy is for the US ruling class to intimidate every nation in to being an obedient servant to the whims and caprices of the imperialist US. Where oil is involved US’s desperation knows no bound. The end justifies the means. And in so doing there shall be no permanent friend but interest. If US and by extension its European sidekicks do enjoy any popular economic support, the recent economy meltdown in US and Euro zone points to one thing; that has been confined to the dust bin of history.

The Israeli brutal and brazen disregard for international laws is, gradually but surely turning it in to an excess luggage too and very heavy for the Americans to shoulder.

In its desperate move to have an unrestricted access to black gold, the US invaded Iraq. The only thing Islamic about Taliban is its claims, yet for the period  Taliban ruled Afghanistan, the production of opium dropped by close to  90%. CIA is one of the major players in drug trade at least within Latin America and Caribbean.  Its large scale covert operations need unlimited resources for the financing, which could not be sourced through a conventional budget allocation; hence the need for the “coke” business. As such, the need to invade Afghanistan is justified under a flimsy and unsubstantiated accusations. Never allow anybody to convince you otherwise. If  in doubt please go to and search for “The Truth and Lies About 9-11” by Michael Rupert, an ex-FBI agent. With the invasion of Afghanistan and displacement of Taliban from the seat of power in Kabul, opium production was restored to a status quo; back to90% “installed” capacity.

At the end its military escapade which translates in to ceaseless genocide and wanton destruction of properties under the guise of war on terror, the united state might have succeeded in invading Iraq and thereby having the much needed license to steal, rob and plunder oil and other sundry natural resources. Afghanistan suffered the same fate and with that comes the restoration of the opium production.

To a large extend Pakistan was equally crippled. Yes Pakistan is a nuclear power, yet with fraudulent and hopeless leadership, nuclear power is nothing but blunt and dull saw.

With the invasion and subsequent toppling of Saddam, Iraq has fallen in to the hand of politicians more sympathetic to Tehran than Washington. The same effect, though on a much lower scale equally images in Kabul. With that a stage was set for Tehran to be the only genuine regional power.

  Israel at best is US’s military cantonment  in the middle. This reality dawn on the neo-cons at the time it was too late for them to reverse the tide.

That was when the quest to militarily subdue Iran became exasperating. To test the military capability of Iran, Hezbollah, which was known to be a miniature Iran was attacked by the illegal state of Israel. After 34 days of uninterrupted military aggression Hezbollah was still standing, while the resources and resolve of the Zionist army was being stretched and spread lean.

With the experience of that military aggression it became clear to Washington that if before now Iran was a hard nut to crack, now it is a hard nut impossible to crack. All the same Tehran must pay a price for standing up against the US hegemony. To start with Syria which has proven to be a loyal and to an extent reliable ally of the IRI must either fall in to the hands of puppets or turned in to another Somalia. All talks about human rights abuse and what not, is a sham. This, of course, is the real deal. If not why sparing Bahrain and Yemen, amongst others ?

 The imperialists, led by the United State are on a rampage. Understandably so because it is frustrated. It’s dream of the new world order is being shattered while looking on helplessly. In Iraq Saddam was brought to power by the CIA. He was sponsored by the US ruling class. The chemical and biological weapon factories, which were later used as a pretext to invade Iraq were built and operated by the CIA. United state was gang leader amongst the imperialist powers that engineered the confiscation , occupation, the massacre and driving the Palestians out of their homeland.

In its desperate move the rule the world so that it can lord it over everybody, US single out deceit as its most  fundamental lethal weapon. The dream is the global enslavement. If deception is the weapon, infiltration is the means which comes in several layers. Some of which include, but not limited to Political, economical, military and technological.

Politically the US preaches democracy. Though democracy is said to be the government of the people, for the people and by the people, the unspoken caveat is : on condition the people that are going to hold the mantle of power in any nation must be willing to be subservient to the whims and caprices of the US ruling class. Anything shot of being the Yankees’ side kick is simply unacceptable. That explains why Iran as at 2009 was the only genuine democracy in the Middle East, yet when Mahmud Ahmadenejad imaged as the popular choice of the Iranians, US with its puppets accused Iran of being undemocratic. Yet countries like the Kindom of Saudi Arabia could go scot free in spite of continual brutal crackdown of activist in the Kingdom. The new World Order is the Anglo America system of domination. With its blind ambition and insatiable thirsy  for cheap oil the military might of the US
