It’s certainly interesting that the US spent 1/2 a billion dollars expanding air bases in Jordan over the past 5 years.

Good quote from Egyppius which sums up well why the US neocons are behaving in this way: "we now live in a multipolar world, but with a political ethos still premised on unchallenged American hegemony. I fear that this is a very big problem, and that it will only get worse."

There are circumstantial elements that point to similar sources for both the plandemic and the current crisis. They both occurred at times that were suspiciously helpful to the mother WEFfers, the first as US nationalism was about to wrest power from them and now, just as the failure to gin up WWIII was running aground in Ukraine.

So today there's a reference in Jeff Childers' blog to a Patrick Byrne video that (reportedly; I haven't watched it) strongly implies that "following the summer battle over Israel’s leftist Supreme Court, Biden (i.e. Obama), U.S. intelligence agencies, and Israeli intelligence agencies undermined Israel — to get rid of Benjamin Netanyahu."

According to Childers, Byrne is claiming insider information to the effect that a bevy of current and ex-Obama crew members infiltrated a cybersecurity firm, Paragon, and gradually nosed out competitors so that this one agency became unilaterally responsible for Israel's security, an obvious vulnerability. The bottom line being that the recent security failure was possibly, or probably, at the hands of an agency that Joebama has controlled.

I think I've adequately represented this, which would be more than very interesting if true. It's over at Coffee and Covid this morning. Maybe someone can determine the veracity of Byrne as a source (Childers is usually pretty good.) and the facts that he claims to have outlined. It's exactly the kind of chicanery, on the part of the usual suspects, that would explain what's going on with this latest gambit.

The CVNs Eisenhower & Ford each have 4500-5000 crew aboard; the support DDs & CGs have ~330 each. They'd be all sitting ducks should a Kinzhal or Zircon target them. Or a torpedo from *someone's* undetectable diesel/electric sub.

Support for Israel's sheer madness will evaporate PDQ from Ma and Pa Kettle out in the Heartlands.

"We can't even get people to voluntarily enlist in the Army, and the people they're taking in are hardly the people that the American people would want in their military. "

I just saw an article wherein over two-thirds of military members are obese or overweight. Milley is clearly quite overweight, as is LtCol Vindman. Whenever I see the military, they are rarely in their dress uniforms. They are almost always in their BDUs, which are basically constructed like a tent - perfect for concealing weight. When I was in the military, we weren't allowed to wear these uniforms off base. Now they are ubiquitous.

Whenever I see a military member, they are almost always overweight. They should be slender, particularly given that most are young. I guess armchair warriors don't have to be physically fit.

"I think Mr Netanyahu is doing something similar in Israel. He's essentially saying, 'It's my way way or the highway.' Very true. Netanyahu has no other choice but to dial it up to 11. He has to risk regional war and maybe even WW3 to avoid a truly terrible outcome: him losing power. And for his type, avoiding that is worth millions of deaths.

"The selling of arms has become the business of the United States. It's this role of the military contractors and their lobbyists that has also hijacking a lot of US foreign policy." And there was me thinking it was about spreading democracy! This probably explains why the mentally deranged Lindsey Graham is now in Jerusalem pumping up WW3.

A lot of great stuff to unpack in this one. Let's start with "The Neocon version is the kindergarten school of statesmanship. Roll out the wornout tropes from 1941 42 43 repackage them." The irony here is that they fall back on these broader WW2 clichés without any understanding or analysis of the flawed military tactics that doomed the higher strategic goals. If Netanyahu has any friends left, they should send him a copy of Anthony Beevor's "Stalingrad".

Mac Gregor was really on a roll ! The satanic loons occupying DC will never realize that both permanent alliances and permanent enemies are lethal threats to all nations. The "indispensable nation" has become an insane asylum, institutions of government are full of pathological personalities, political pimps and prostitutes, with a pathetic puppet as President.

Austin is freakishly similar, Texas style .

What a conundrum for the Biden Admin.

He needs re-assure the contributors of 50% Democratic Party Funds (Jewish).

While not alienating the blm / Dei faction of the Democratic Party that has zero use for Israel, and views them as settlers / colonists.

While Israel is inflamed over the Hamas atrocities

And keep the Ukrainian bipartisan gravy train going.

And keep the price of oil reasonable, without a repeat spike as happened in 73 with the last major war.

Mark, as usual (and you were up late doing so!) you've gathered insightful and important info. A bit chilling, but as Col MacGregor points out, the US is an economic mess and projecting a hollow military threat across much too broad a theater. Very telling was his pointing out the US's social fabric is worn quite thin - those Pride Flags won't patch the tears the progressive culture of today has rendered. Naive 'super-power' neocons and the 'our way or the highway' diplomacy risk not just US hegemony, but life as we know it. Nuclear Fallout has no pronoun preferences, to be a bit trite. Blessings to you and all my fellow MIH truth seekers. (WrH)

Hamas is no where near a real military, it’s capacity is being way over estimated.
